    SJW effects waning. Looking to try Rhodiola Rosea

    Cool Hey that sounds great! When I started SJW, I felt the effects the very next day. I think some people just respond very quickly to certain treatments.

    What brands of Rhodiola work?! Please help!

    Thanks! Thanks to all of you for letting me know what brands you use. I went ahead and ordered the GNC brand just because I'd like to see if a well known name brand will work out alright. I used Walgreen's SJW for months and it never let me down yet, so hopefully the GNC brand has good...

    What brands of Rhodiola work?! Please help!

    Brands... Yeah I tried just Googling Rhodiola Rosea as a few people have suggested, but it was just an overwhelming mish-mash of shady looking sites, all who suggested that their formula was the "only" genuine formula that worked, or that it was "the best". I take the Walgreens brand of SJW...

    What brands of Rhodiola work?! Please help!

    I have tried SJW with positive results for 6 months. I want to try taking Rhodiola Rosea to compare the two and decide which I can lead a happier life with. I'm pretty lost though as far as what brand to try, what things to look for in dosage/ingredients, and what web-site to order from. I can...

    Rhodiola Rosea vs. St. Johns Wort for Social Anxiety

    SJW VS Rhodiola Before I address the anxiety issue, I think some info on my SJW experience may help you make a decision. I've taken SJW for about 6 months. It has definitely helped me with both social anxiety and with depression. I haven't tried Rhodiola yet, but I mean to switch to it very...

    SJW effects waning. Looking to try Rhodiola Rosea

    I've been taking St. John's Wort since late January for depression/anxiety. For the first 3 months or so it worked very well for both symptoms. It allowed me to get my life back together and continues to enable me to see myself for who I really am. However, the anti-anxiety effects have waned...

    5-HTP ..Just started taking it today

    Great Vicky, I do not take 5-HTP, but I have had a similar experience with SJW which has been great for getting rid of my depression. For me, the SJW worked within days and I too was feeling pretty happy to be smiling again. I am going to try taking 5-HTP after my next paycheck to see if it...

    2 Months: Results, and a look back.

    I started taking Saint John's Wort 3 times daily just over 2 months ago. At this time interacting with people was almost painful because I had such terrible social anxiety. On top of that, I now know that I suffered from a "dysthemic" disorder ("chronic mild depresssion"), so I never hit rock...

    Only day 2 for me and .....

    Awesome Hey Fizz. I'm glad to hear that you're feeling some positive effects. I felt much like you 2 weeks ago, as that was my first week. I noticed that on top of feeling much more like myself, the anxiety I normally feel was reduced significantly. I noticed that I feel best when my doses...

    Need Some Help Please

    New Method I went ahead and tried a new method last night. Took two 300mg tablets at bedtime, right as my "Simply Sleep" pill kicked in. This was done on empty stomach to ensure that I would absorb the highest possible SJW. This morning I woke up and felt noticeably better, not great, but...

    Need Some Help Please

    This is the second day of my third week on SJW. The positive effects are beginning to wear off, and perhaps I may need to adjust the times that I take my doses. Right now I'm taking 300mg 3x a day. On at wake, one at midday, and one at bedtime. Just would really like to hear what dosing method...

    I can't believe I stumbled upon this I had no idea.

    Update I just wanted to write a quick update. This week has been a highly stressful one, because my 5 classes all had exams and lots of homework too. Nonetheless, I am still feeling remarkably better since starting the SJW a little less than 2 weeks ago. I have been staying up til about 3 AM...

    I can't believe I stumbled upon this I had no idea.

    Exactly Hey Gravity you're exactly right. I'm sorry if I described it as a euphoric feeling. I know there are a lot of people here reading this stuff who are going to take very literally what I say, and they should because they're looking for answers, but I'll explain this initial feeling in...

    I can't believe I stumbled upon this I had no idea.

    Thanks Hey, yes, that's exactly what it's like to envy naturally happy people. I too noticed that after the first few days, the feelings of "euphoria" wore off. I no longer get that extremely relaxed feeling from the SJW. However, that's not what I was looking for in the first place. Whatever...

    I can't believe I stumbled upon this I had no idea.

    Good! That's great! I hope it works as well for you as it has for me so far. I feel pretty much amazing. The good thing is it's not an artificial feeling, it's just that I haven't felt this way in so long that the thought of being this way for possibly years to come is a little overwhelming...
