Okay I'll let you know, for sure.
I bought the GNC brand, although that is not really what I wanted to do.
I wanted to find a brand that I knew was harvested the plant in Siberia/Russia because from what I read, that is what contains most of the active ingredients and stuff from China is not the same at all. I checked/emailed "Nature's Way" and theirs is from Northern China. I'm not saying theirs doesn't work, I'm just going by what I read on the internet. If I read it on the internet it must be true, right?
I went to the local health food store to ask if they had one from Russia there but they changed their hours and were closed when I got there.
Because I wanted it so badly, I just went to GNC.......hesitantly.......but did it anyway. Of course the sales lady did not know where their brand was harvested and I couldn't get all the info I wanted on their brand but I bought it anyway.
So, if it doesn't work at all or doesn't work well, I'll probably attribute it to the brand and order a good one online.
Either way, I'm going to try it tomorrow morning.
If you google it, you'll find TONS of good things about it. It seems very promising so I am hopeful.
I am wondering/considering weaning off of my Lexapro if it works because I think I'm experiencing "ssri poop out" and am generally disgusted with antidepressants anymore. I'm not saying for sure what I'm going to do about my Lexapro but time will tell. I'm also not swearing off all antidepressants forever.....I'm just not so happy with them and their side effects so I'm in limbo about them at this point.
This herb is supposed to have no side effects and no known interactions. So thats good.
Anywho, I'll let you know what happens.
