  1. This medicine gave me dystonia. And a hypo state which does not let me sleep most of the times resulting in lucid and vivid dreams.

  2. This tablet I took for 45 days and while I was on it, it gave me vivid and lucid dreams. Now that I am off it I can’t sleep properly and still get the dreams. Also the worst part is it gave me palpitations and dystonia

  3. Very bad medicine. Does exact opposite of what it’s prescribed for. Also doubts about why they’re prescribing it in the first place. I was given this tablet saying I have a weak nervous system and now I can’t think straight after consuming it for a month. Persistent heavy head and palpitations in the whole body. Doctor says this medicine has nothing to do with it but I was perfectly alright before consuming it.
