14 days, no problems. I have used the 1-1-2 week one and 1-1-1 week two. I have yet to feel anything significantly. I have a small bit of runny nose - take allergy cap; and insomnia (or I don't feel as sleepy) take Melatonin. I also us Valerian Root with Passion Flower in place of Xanax. I am starting Niacin flush today (750mg). I am feeling good and hopeful. IF I feel bad, then I will conclude that medically, I need these chemical. But I'm pretty confidant right now !
