EMPowerplus/Truehope Update Day 11

EMPowerplus/Truehope Update Day 11

I am now on day 11 of my EMPowerplus experiment and, yes, I have talked to my doctor about it (more on that later). Here’s what I have to report about the EMPowerplus:

  • I started on half a dose – that’s two pills in the morning and two in the evening.
  • Pretty much as soon as I started taking the EMPowerplus I started feeling giddy. Not quite hypomanic but notably elevated and different, although not better.
  • On day five I experienced an official rapid cycle from hypomania one day to serious debilitating depression the next day.

Selling EMPowerplus and TrueHopeSince that happened, my mood has stabilized to pretty much what it was before. However, as you might have noticed, the holidays have happened, my routine broken and so during the holidays, nothing can really be fairly assessed. I’ve now moved up to three pills in the morning.

I’d like to note that in spite of dire warnings from the company, nothing bad has happened in spite of being on medications and taking the supplement. Personally, I wasn’t expecting the rapid cycle on day five, but I was expecting nothing much to happen, so I was right and I was wrong, I guess. I’ll keep you updated as I move forward.
