... cravings are gone! I have lost about 5 pounds so far this first week but boy do I feel sleepy at work all day. I have to take a nap on my lunch break or I won't make it through the day. I've read that this is pretty normal. I increase my dose to 1 am and 1 pm in a few days. Is this going to make me more sleepy? I sure hope not. I am an Analyst and it's critical that I am focused and alert at work. I'm pretty nervous to increase my dose.
