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 worse. Since I wasn’t noticing improvement, I increased my dose to 3 times a day (900 mg a day) and began having sudden headaches in the afternoon and/or evening. I will hang on for another three weeks at 2-3 times a day (600 -900 mg a day), depending on the headache side effect hopefully going away eventually. I am reaching out to anyone for any thoughts and opinion on this. Please share any experience you may have.

Ramon you need to stick to the 600-900 a day at least 5 more weeks before you can make a decision. From all the research I have done; quite a few people almost had given up at the 3-7 week mark only to find out it kicked in another week later.

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?

Ramon, I have been on a dose of Perika 3x300mg for 13 days. I can feel that I am taking some sort of medicine but there is not really any benefit at the moment. It feels like I am taking some sort of upper like Adderall but my mood is not really changed. I also have slight anxiety.

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.

Ramon, I am at 20 days now and it started kicking in for me last night. I can feel it working like 50% of the way its supposed to. I am sure better days are to come. I started taking 4x300mg per day and I think that is working best for me right now.

I don't want to jinx myself but this might end up being real nice. I started feeling feelings I haven't fealt since I was a teenager. :D

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 chance.

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.
