2-6 tablets oral Damiana
  2-6 tablets oral Guarana
  2-6 tablets oral Yerba Mate
  2-6 tablets oral Vitamin C
I read about some herbal supplements that give euphoric effects so I purchased guarana, yerba mate, damiana and vitamin c. These were all ingredients found in a brand of herbal extacy.

After doing extensive research on each one and got good reviews I took 2 pills of each: damiana, vitamin c, guarana and yerba mate mixed in a cup and downed it.

T- 30 min: nothing
T-45 slight energy boost for 15 minutes
T-1 hour after taking effects fully gone and only minor pupil change.
T-1h30min after I feel ripped off and can't believe I was that stupid

After I contemplated the fact that I spend 40$ on this crap I increased previous dose x3 and got a weak DXM like feeling and I have a headache and am going to bed.

What a waste of time and money won't be doing herbal supplements again ...ever.
