(This question may also help those who have posted in the Rhodiola forum without getting a response.) It seems more of you check this forum instead. Anyway, although i would love to try SJW, I take oral contraceptives which have been shown to lose their efficacy when taken along with the herb. So.. I figured I would try Rhodiola which seems like the next best supplement. I have tried Enzymatic Therapy, taking 2 pills in the am. I guess it helped a little to lift my spirits, but since this is the only brand i have tried so far, i'm not sure what to expect. I just ordered Nature's Plus, and by what others have said; taking 1 pill/day is sufficient. I was wondering if anyone else has had a positive effect with Rhodiola and if so, what was the brand and dosage? My mood really flucuates ( i'm guessing also as a side effect of taking OCP's), but unforunately i'm stuck taking them to help regulate my cycle. I know it's not the only reason i'm down in the dumps most of the time, but i'm sure it's related. Anyway, I have tried L-Tyrosine which i stopped taking since I couldn't seem to tell any difference. I am also currently taking 5-HTP 100mg every night which helps me sleep (been taking this for about two years now). Not really sure if this has helped my mood much either! I would really appreciate if anyone could offer additional suggestions or comments regarding Rhodiola or other supplements i should try. Thanks in advance!
