In reply to St. JohnsWort (high dose!) +adrafinil+ amisulpride, posted by Dwight on June 17, 2000, at 9:34:41
> I read a post here earlier this morning about St.Johns Wort--I believe it was either JohnL or AndrewB--, saying that it was important to get a high enough dose, i.e., 2700mg/day. That's a lot! On the bottle I have it recommends only 150mg twice a day (but it also contains reishi mushroom, avena sativa and lavender). Anyway, a few hours ago I took 1000mg. Wow, what a difference! I'd taken SJW on numerous occassions in the past and had never felt much of anything. Why do the recommend such miniscule doses? This time I really felt something--a warm, kind of bouncy feeling, hard to describe, but pleasant. I'm wondering though if this might be due, not only to the increase in dose, but also to some sort of synergistic interaction with the adrafinil or amisulpride. I mention this because I remember JohnL saying that SJW worked better with these meds.
This is great. It must feel great. I hope you continue to feel great. Please send me any extra brain-juice via UPS.
How would you describe the nature and severity of your depression?
What other drugs and dosages are you taking?
If you were to maintain a 1000mg - 2000mg daily dosage, how much would it cost?
