    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    I did give SJW 6 weeks and tried 600 to 900 mg per day. It just didn’t work. That’s why I had to find other options.

    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    Hi Kelly. I started the Mirtazapine (remeron) on July 1 and so far it hasn’t helped me with sleep at all. It’s supposed to also help with appetite and I haven’t noticed any improvement either. I don’t know what else to do.

    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    The SJW didn’t help me after giving it a chance for 6 weeks. I’ve stopped taking it since I’ve been having insomnia when I went on 900 mg a day. As much as I have been avoiding antidepressants, I had an appointment with a psyche doctor and he prescribed me Mirtazapine. I am getting the script...

    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    Just completed 5 weeks at 2x300 (600 mg) per day and still no change so I started 3x300 (900 mg) per day, 3 days ago and will continue until I finish the second bottle in 2 weeks. Hopefully I will feel better within the next couple of weeks.

    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    Wow. Good to hear that you’re starting to feel better. I’m jealous of you and trying to be hopeful that I will eventually start feeling better myself. I’m at 30 days on 2 x 300 mg (600 mg) per day and feeling about the same. Just bought another bottle of 60 tabs and will continue to give it a...

    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    So most likely it is working in both of us and hopefully, just a matter of time when we both start feeling the full benefit. We’ll just have to keep in touch and offer support as we go through this journey.

    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    Ok, thanks. How about you? Is it working for you? Are you still on it and at what dose? How long have you been on it?

    On my 22nd day on Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin but still no improvement in mood

    I started on May 15, 2018 at 600 mg a day (300 mg tab in am and another 300 mg in pm) and stayed on this lower starting dose due to my smaller body size, for the first 18 days. I also tried just one tab (300 mg) a day for a couple days to find out if the 600 mg was too much but my mood got...

    Four Days and Tickin..

    I will try your suggestion about only taking one tablet (300mg) a day starting today. It’s not that I was having any side effects from taking 2 tablets (600 mg) a day or feeling more depressed. I’m okay with it so far for the past 15 days. It’s just that I have not yet felt a lift in my mood...

    Four Days and Tickin..

    Hi Waggz, thanks so much for responding quickly. I feel desperate not getting any response when I need it most. I’m taking Perika standardized to 2% hyperforin. I just want to take it at the dose where I can get the maximum benefit without taking too much either. I’m concerned that if I only...

    Four Days and Tickin..

    I started May 15, 2018 so it has been 15 days for me at 600 mg a day (300 mg after breakfast and another 300 mg during late afternoon) and I haven’t noticed an improvement in my mood. I’ve read that I should give it at least 6 weeks. I guess I’m impatient. I’m a slim guy, 137 # so I think I...

    I'm at roughly 45 days

    How long have you been taking SJW before it started working for you? And at what dose was effective for you?

    Started SJW a week ago on May 15, 2018 at a lower dose of 300 mg, 2x a day instead of 3x a day due to my smaller body size

    Hi coco31, Thanks for your reply but I need to translate it since I don’t understand or speak French. Ramon

    I just started SJW, signed up for this forum and highly recommend your main site as well as this forum to anyone considering SJW and are having questions and needing valuable information. I read the postings and it seems like a lot of the members would like for this site to continue as it has...

    I’m using Perika at standardized to 2% Hyperforin. I was doing fine the first four days on 300 mg, twice a day and actually started feeling a little better (believe it or not!) until I experimented on taking 2 x 300 mg in the morning and 1 x 300 mg in the evening on the fifth day and waking up...
