THanks for the article. I started DIM to see if it helps stop or reduce fibroids. On day TWO I experience a migrane with nausea and vomit. The headache lasted all over the night, very strong.
Thanks for sharing your experience – we really appreciate it when people report both positive and negative effects.
i took the recommended dose of DIM (2 capsules) for 2 days and ended up with the worst headache of my life. writhing on the floor for about 8 hours and then felt very ‘off’ for about another 2 days. i started taking it for acne and was super excited about the possible effects so i will try again at a quarter of the suggested dose.
I have been taking (1 soft gel) 100 mg. daily of DIM. Seems like a small dose, but I get extreme watery diarrhea when taken. I know it is the DIM because when I stop it for a couple days and then take it again, I get the same side effect.
Has anyone else reported this side effect?
I wanted to take it for all the benefits it seems to offer, but I can’t deal with the loose/watery stools everyday.
Any ideas why I react this way to the supplement?
Thanks for sharing your review. The diarrhea could be a response to the active ingredient or it could have something to do with the soft gel formulation you are taking. What specific product are you using? It may be worthwhile switching to a different formulation of this product to see if that alleviates your adverse reaction. There are DIM capsules as well as drink powders that you could try instead.
I just started menopause and had started to get hot flashes. I would get really warm behind my neck randomly and also at night. I started taking this about two weeks after experiencing this and in about 24-48 hours it all disappeared. I was shocked! I take one capsule in the morning with breakfast and that’s it. Problem solved. I highly recommend it.
