Hi, Nickie, sorry so long to resond, I didn't even see the thread! I think Dana is the one to ask about that stuff, anyway, she's the Rx queen!
Hon, please don't take that crap! It will mess up your moods, not for the better. It really doesn't give you any more energy than a couple of cups of coffee because the "natural" ones are just forms of caffiene, gurana and another one, i think it starts with a C, I don't remember. Anyhoo, they are not good. Any diet supplements are the same, they really won't help you, it's the last thing we need.
Oh, and don't ever take St. John's Wort - it reacts very badly on BPs - just the opposite. Just stick with your meds, hon and take care of your body. Besides, you have diabetes, you should know better! . (just a little scolding from someone who cares ).
