PROS: postive mood, side effects mild, alert and ambitious
CONS: not long lasting, tolerance quickly , interupted sleeping paterns

I have heard that this drug now has been labled black box for liver damage, Although my mother took it for 20 years and never experinced any liver complications. I think this drug moves through your system quickly since it's water soluble, and in my opinion this seems less toxic to overall health.I also think this medication signigantly improves mood and social relations. Also creativity is inspired.
