Hi there.

My name is John, and I want to tell you all about my experience with Happy Pills. Before the ingredients Huperzine and SAMe were thrown into the formula, the Happy Pills formula was by far the best thing I have ever had! I had great energy, a great mood, and my metabolism was up. However, since Brain Pharma took out Arginine AKG (and I think hacked out a fairly decent amount of the other ingredients) and added Huperzine (which I researched is really good for memory) and SAMe (which is the reason I am writing this review), my experience with Happy Pills hasn't been quite so, well, happy. In fact my usage of it has caused me to become rather aggressive and irrational to the point I was believing people were out to get me. Either I am sensitive to chemicals altogether (which worked in my favor with the original formula) or I am just another statistic in regards to the adverse effects of SAMe. I researched after having noticed these symptoms that SAMe has the ability to do that. The Happy Pills reviews that you see that are before Dec. 2011 are out of date with the current formula. Go ahead and try them at your own risk.

***UPDATE AS OF MARCH 19, 2012*** Brain Pharma has discontinued the tablet version and there is only a capsule version now with 2 new added ingredients and it is terrible!! The original version is the best, these new ones suck. They still make me happy, but definitely not as much as the original! And the bottle has new warnings saying you can't take these pills consecutively for more than 8 weeks. WTH? I took the original version everyday for months! This is awful, don't order the new version. If anyone can find the address for Brain Pharma, I want to write them and ask them to bring back the original tabs!***

I have been taking 1 pill a day for almost a month now. At first, I didn't notice much difference, other than my appetite was suppressed and I had a bit more energy than normal. It does say on the bottle that results come with continuous use, so I knew I needed to just keep taking them. After 2 weeks or so, I definitely had a significant change in my energy level and mood. Recently, I started exercising a few days a week and that has made the effects even more prominent! I now have the energy to clean the whole house and play with my, full-of-energy, toddler, without having to sit down and take a break. I definitely do not feel the need to eat as much as before. I can have a small snack and be satisfied, without wanting to keep munching on things. My mood has also changed greatly, just like the bottle says, you really feel happier!
These are not magic pills. You can't take just one and feel a super effect, it does not work that way. But if you don't want the bad side effects of energy drinks or diet pills, then these are definitely for you! You can't beat the price either, cause a 60 count will last you 2 months!

The only thing I will warn about-- Make sure to take them in the morning/early afternoon. A few times, I made the mistake of taking them too late in the day(like 3 or 4 pm) and then I had a little trouble falling asleep, but it wasn't bad.

All in all, I definitely recommend these pills if you need an appetite suppressant, a mood boost or an energy boost. They are awesome!!!!

I've been taking the 'original formula' Happy Pills for about 9mth now and I can feel a significant improvement in myself the days I take it. Every day that I take these, even when I wake up grouchy and low - if I take my happy pills in about an hour I would feel more positive, focused, and outgoing. Even on days when I was in such low moods that I didn't even want to be in a better mood, my Happy Pills would bring me out it, I was amazed. My husband notices the days that I forget my happy pills w/out me telling him anything, so it's not a placebo affect. I still had some of my 'old' tablets left, and saw the new formula while at a local Vitamin store, picked up a bottle to compare them. I've tried the new formula 'capsules' for the last 2 days now and I DO NOT FEEL the same positive benefits anymore from my Happy Pills. I'm really worried now that I'm quickly going to go back to the old me. I struggled with serious anxiety and mild depression for 8yrs before I found these and now I am crushed and scared to go back to my old 'feelings' after finally finding something to help me feel normal for the last 9mths. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA TABLETS!!! THE NEW ONES DO NOT WORK!!!

I just returned home from my second trip to GNC. Months ago I had tried a sample size of these pills while on the checkout line at Vitamin Shoppe. I took them in the car and felt great the rest of the day, but at the time, I didn't need them. Also at the time, these pills were tablets, not capsules.

I went to GNC today with the hopes of finding something to alleviate my recent mild depression and anxiety. I had recently picked up St. John's Wort and had pretty good success with that. Upon seeing these I remembered how great they were and they contained St. John's Wort, 5-HTP and others. Little did I know, they changed the formula since I last took it. Upon opening, I was suprised to find capsules and not the tablets I was anticipating. But after taking the recommended dose, I hopped online just to double check a few things.

After reading the reviews, I noticed other people were upset with the recent reformulation and I must say, I agree. These things are loaded with caffeine, which from my now clammy hands, blurred vision, heated skin and increased anxiety, I can clearly notice it. I promptly returned these to GNC. Bring the old version back, these things which were once a useful and respectable formula, are now just as much of a joke as the other 95% of the products on the shelves at GNC. DO NOT BUY. DEMAND THE OLD FORMULAS RETURN.

I googled "happy pills" cuz the internet has everything, & found these. The reason these work, is that it NATURALLY boosts the part of ur brain that makes u happy. Seretonin! It's not magic, but it WORKS! I still have emotions, but they are justified, & under control. I just started 4 days ago! Im a single mom of 2 boys, full time job... Sometimes I get overwhelmed, frustrated, and have been feelin very unhappy with everything on my shoulders. I honestly feel truly balanced now. Prescriptions seem to take ur whole ability of feeling sad away, I hate that. These just balance it out. I have the same life, but I dont wanna sit & feel sorry for myself anymore. I have my confidence back. I am who im supposed to be!!! & that's all I wanted. Btw, absolutely no jitters, which is such a plus!! I totally recommend them!:)

I have been taking this product for a month now and i just ordered another bottle. I feel so much more at ease with myself. Before I took this product everything seemed to upset me or I would feel depressed and tired. I feel so more relaxed and even my husband had said that there is such a difference in my overall mood.

I just started taking my Happy Pills today,but tried half of the dose(the recommended dose is 2 with a meal once a day). Within 20 minutes, I started feeling alert, focused and in a really calm, good mood! And although they contain caffeine, I did not get the jitters! These are the best! I have tried Metabolife, but was left with the dreaded caffeine crash! NO CRASH HERE! I would recommend these to anyone looking for a mood boost, energy and mental focus!

I have been taking Happy Pills on and off to test if they really make a difference or not, and I have to say they do for me. I agree with some other reviewers here that each individual is different, and this formula may not work for everyone.
I have noticed on the days I take it that I am more energetic, focused, and my mood is stabilized. Also, my hunger is curbed bigtime. This was the most noticeable difference, as I am ALWAYS hungry it seems. Lol. But with just one pill a day ( recommended dosage is 2/day), my appetite is 'normal' and when I DO eat, I am very satisfied, and I don't overdo it.
I think the only thing people can do is try it for themselves to see if it works or not. I would advise checking with your primary physician before you start to make sure none of the ingredients will interfere with other perscription meds you may be taking.
This is just my opinion, but I would recommend it for anyone looking for a gentle mood enhancer, energizer, and appetite suppressant.

I was down one day and googled happy pills, mostly as a joke. These came up, so I though "what the heck" and purchased them. I take 1 first thing in the morning to get me going and it helps a great deal! They give you a good kick start of energy, don't make you feel sluggish when they wear off, and if you're in a depressed mood, they do get you out of it, at least at the moment. Of all the energy pills I've taken I think Happy Pills do the best job for me.

I am a small female, so I only take 1 instead of the 2 the box recommends.
