6 Point Comments - It Cured Me

This is a wonderful plant for me. Make sure to buy organic and from companies that have good business practices. Some days, it seems to have more benefit then others. I noticed that when I stopped taking Rhodiola I had less confidence at work and in social settings. I have experimented with doses of ~5 grams containing (3% rosavins and 1% salidrosides), at this dose I notice some deleterious effects like mild restlessness and insomnia. Steangely, another brand of R. rosea has put me to sleep at about 3g dose.

5 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Lot

This adaptogen herb has been a game changer for me. After several years of trying many things and nothing working I found reference to this he b on Aviva Romm's website (See Aviva Romm website and search "adaptogens" or listen to her podcast natural md radio. She has a good Intro to these herbs and I chose RHodiola rosea from this list. ) Just Siberian Rhodiola Rosea alone has given me increased energy and a clearer mind. I can stand and sing now instead of having to sit down after 30 seconds. I can think again. I can shower without having to go back to bed afterwards. I can leave the house without being afraid I'll collapse in public. I noticed a big change after about two weeks use.

It made no difference. I took between 240 and 1,000 mg for nearly one month. It did absolutely nothing for me.

1 Point Comments - It Made Me a Lot Worse

Sadly, because it made me a lot better at first. My friend calls it "the crack-cocaine plant" because it makes you feel cheerful, productive and energetic... and then precipitates PEM. It makes even some ordinary people describe a 'wired but tired' effect and I couldn't get a full night's sleep using it. This was before I had trouble sleeping at all. It also didn't work on me after two consecutive doses. Loses its effectiveness when your body runs out of resources.
