Have you ever tried it? What differences have you noticed if any? I just picked up some at my local drug store last night. I took it with dinner and about 20 minutes later I was on the toilet and hurting. Not sure if it was that or the dinner...but it wasn't fun! Share your experiences with me please.

I highly doubt it was the chromium picolinate, it wouldn't be effective in 20 minutes - especially if it was taken with a meal. It is usually taken as a weight loss aid and I have never heard of anyone having any negative side effects from it. Check out this article for the pros and cons of it: http://www.bodybuildingforyou.com/weight-loss-etc/chromium-picolinate-information.htm I have never had any problems with it when it used it in supplements or as a stand alone product.

How has it been since you have been on it? Are you noticing any results? If you are I may look into it. Hope you are feeling better

Well I have only been on it for about a week so it's kind of soon to tell if there's much of a difference yet. But I have been feeling fine taking it everyday with no other episodes like the one above :)
