I had different/worse side effects this time I took it than I did the first time I took it, and the first time it was a higher dose and much longer period of time. This time, the highest dose I was on was 40mgs. I was starving all the time, sweating like crazy, aggresive/angry/moody, gaining weight, shaky, unable to sleep/ horrific nightmares. The first time all I remember was my face got big, acne, and I was moody. I never noticed hair loss either time.
