Short of taking it myself, this is a difficult question. Over the years my daughter has been on this medicine I must admit I have been tempted but have never fallen to it. I wouldn't know how much to take at my size anyway. I always ask my daughter about it. The best answer I got from her was she once told me that it make her think better. Hope that helps.
