Does anyone here have experience with taking Inositol, otherwise known as vitamin B8? I have a book on Natural Cures and I looked into natural remedies for anxiety. The anxiety that I suffer is actually an uncommon side effect of Metformin. If there is a negative side effect to a drug, I am the one who is going to experience it, especially the unusual ones, LOL.
Anyway, in researching Inositol I found that it is helpful for a lot of things: anxiety, diabetes, constipation, psoriasis, insomnia, and more. Honestly they should have just put my name on this supplement as it supposedly deals with so many issues that I experience, LOL.
In order for it to be helpful for anxiety, a large amount is required so I have to start out slowly and build up to it. Too much too fast and diarrhea occurs. So, I am taking a heaping 1/4 tsp in water at dinner time. I've only been taking it for a few days but it does seem to have a mild effect on the anxiety already and my glucose readings are slightly lower than normal following meals.
I'm just curious if anyone has any info or experiences to share.
