    What dosage did you try, and how often?

    I've been doing 100mg twice per day (2nd dose at 2pm or earlier). The pills are 400mg, so I have to split them. But haven't felt wired thus far.

    The supplement is called Herbal V, and one tablet has 250mg yohimbe. I took one.

    I'm scared of stimulants, of having a crash down the road from using up energy that's not really available. Does that make sense?

    But I'm tempted to try a half a tablet tomorrow.

    The Fisher Wallace device stopped working after a few weeks; I've sent it back.

    The lyme test came back negative, so one less thing to worry about!

    I've been on Terry Wahls' diet for a week. I had started 0.5 LDN at the same time, but then I stopped the LDN so I can first see if the diet affects sleep. I expect to stay on the diet long-term.

    I decided to go back to Florida and see Dr. Rey, now that I know I don't have lyme disease. She got me in quickly; I see her on 10/29. Depending on what she says, I hope to start the LDN again after I get back.
