Apr 12, 2011 (Started Feb 01, 2011)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for insomnia)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Take with a LOT of water. The capsules always feel like they're caught in my throat. Also, hold your breath, valerian is not a nice smelling herb. I notice when I take it, I'm less likely to wake up randomly throughout the night so that's a good thing.

    Slight (for anxious mood)

Advice & Tips: I add this sometimes at night when I'm freaking out and my other sedating meds aren't helping. I wouldn't recommend mixing it with all the shit I'm mixing it with. I don't think it will kill me, but it might not be the greatest idea. I think it helps sedate me more and calm me enough to sleep and feel somewhat normal
