5 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Lot

I started at 100 mg using Herb Pharm brand liquid drops. I slowly moved up to my current 260mg at bedtime. If I took too much too fast I became hyper the next day.
I've been plateaued for a long time, but over the first few months it made a dramatic improvement in my sleep quality, stamina, and overall strength. It was a turning point in my starting to get better.

It was advised by a 'normal' doctor, who is also trained in natural remedies (homeopathy and another one that I cannot translate, sorry :))

This one helped me 'a lot', it completely boosted my energy and made a major difference in mental clarity. I felt much more myself, more then I had in years.
But there was a downside, after a few (6) months of taking it, I started to get side effects. So it was not a long term solution.

Reduces stress level in general and brings the fun-loving part of my personality out more. I feel and act a little more normal moment-by-moment with my family, despite ongoing ME/CFS symptoms.

Serotonin syndrome PLUS what I get when I take cortisol, which is a feeling like a plug has been pulled and all my energy has drained away: instant crash. PEM in a capsule.
