Sex: F
Age: 39
Location: texas
Time Taken: 2.5 months

Reason: I had a full hysterectomy, have one ovary left and I am 39 years old. I was having mood swings, breast tenderness and hot flashes. The chaste tree did wonderful for 2 1/2 months, I felt great! Date: 10 August 2008
Side Effects
I started having dizziness, then tingling in my arms, and then my heart started racing in my sleep. At first I took the full 30 ml once a day in the morning. Then that got to be too much at once so I then started taking it twice a day 15ml, then I went down to 15 ml once in the a.m. After two episodes of my heart racing, I quit chaste tree immediately. I have not experienced anymore heart racing.

Additional Thoughts
I believe it's an excellent herb, it really does help balance out your hormones, and now I am at a loss as to what to do. Since I am sensitive to black cohosh also. I am not able to take estrogen pills, so chaste tree did help me through the hard times.
