Hi everyone, I 'm hoping someone can help me figure this out. I started taking clearetto pills (herbal supplement) to balance my DHT/androgen production (I have PCOS and androgen dominance symptoms) and address possible vitamin deficiencies. The main ingredient in clearetto is saw palmetto, but it also contains other vitamins. I started with a low dosage, but because I needed to take more saw palmetto, I increased it to 3 pills a day now (the recommended max is 4 a day for severe acne). Along with the saw palmetto, though, I'm inevitably taking more vitamins plus zinc and copper in each pill. I started experiencing some headaches, dizziness, and trouble concentrating and I'm wondering if it's the saw palmetto or if I'm taking more vitamins than I need. Is there such a thing as vitamin overdose? Or maybe it's a saw palmetto overdose? I was once advised to stop taking my multivitamin for a while because I didn't need it, so I'm wondering if my body just doesn't need all the extras that come with saw palmetto in clearetto. Please let me know what you think. Here is a list of the ingredients (gelatin capsule).
