Hi folks,

I've been trying St. Johns wort for my anxiety, and have been on it for 2-3 weeks.

On the positive side, I don't feel like it's doing any harm, but I really don't feel like it's doing anything.

I have a good brand with a good potency and am taking the recommended dosage.

I may go back to Sam-e. I had great luck, but changed due to cost.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Ryan

I took it before but I think it might have been only for a week. I can't remember but I felt it was working but I might have been just at a point that I wanted to be positive. So, I don't know if it helped me.

I tried St john worth in my vaporizer instead of weed, helps only for sleep, you should try suntheanine , that really helps, can't do no harm, or 5htp, there is a lot of natural remedies that can help, you don;t need to get in the pharmaceutical world for help, as I did.

I used to take Kira SJW when it was still on the market. Seems to be gone now. I was taking a dose of 1500 to 1800 mg (I forget which). I was taking it in this range because the studies used such a high range. What I recall was feeling a little bit better and a little bit more able to cope with the world. As for making me more social, I doubt that it made any difference.

I'm taking it three times a day and It's working for me. The other day I said to my husband that I remembered to take it because I was thinking after something that would typically throw me way off, "why am I not upset"? I thought it has to be helping. This is week three and I'm a content user.

I've had more luck with Mandarines and Oranges. Vitamin C lowers influences cortisol levels.

I have kava pretty regularly, especially on bad days. I used to get the pure stuff, but then controls came in. Now I drink it in small quantities commercially available in tea products. It has a decent anxiolytic effect if you can get your hands on some.

I find that it works quite well IF you actually have stjohns wort.

Alot of fraud going on at major retailers which is disconcerting.

If you don't have the luxury of being able to wild forage for the herb I would suggest you order it online in the liquid gel cap form. Make sure the liquid is a really nice red color. (red is where the magic is) Hope this helps.
