So I can't remember who all responded that they've used Vitex, but I had a yucky morning and wondered if it could have been a side effects of Vitex.

I've been taking 400mg 3x a day. Yesterday I was pretty busy and forgot to take my middle dose. I took a pill at 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. instead.

I woke up so dizzy and nauseous this morning. I took a shower and was so messed up when I got out of it, I didn't think I could stand without falling over or getting sick.

I even bypassed coffee for awhile -- ME. BYPASS COFFEE. That's like a priest skipping over communion. I drank some water first and had a few bites of a Clif bar, which seemed to help, but I was still feeling funny on my commute to work.

Maybe I took them too close together?

Oh no! That sounds terrible.

I have never taken vitex but I googled the side affects: "More common side effects include mild digestive upset or skin rash. Other side effects may include rapid heartbeat, hair loss, headache, dry mouth, nausea, rash, itching and bleeding between periods. "

From the site:
Vitex - What You Need to Know

hope you feel better soon!!!

I didn't take that much. Too much vitex acts as a contraceptive rather than making you ovulate. I took mine in the form of Fertilitea, 1 cup per day since I do ovulate, I just wanted to ovulate sooner and stronger. I don't remember having any side effects, but I will consult my chart and see if I put any on there.

I dont know anything about Vitex but what you describe sounds like a issue with your blood pressure - especially after being in the shower. I would be cautious about your next dose - headaches is another thing to look out for also dizzyness, blurred vision, sweaty - be careful!

Jen, actually, I had all of those other symptoms, too. I was really hot and I definitely had blurry vision. I thought maybe my sinuses were acting up, which would explain a lot of the symptoms, but it felt different....

Even though it says to take a certain amount if your feeling like that the dose is probably to high! Becareful! Try cutting the dose back a hair (if you can) or only do say 2 doses instead of 3. I have never taken it but this is what I would do for any other medicine.
