Marsh, I think you might need to try 600 mgs during the day. Perhaps you are feeling anxiety in the mornings and 300 is just not enough.
My experience with N. is that it requires constant changes in dosing for it to work. I go up and down with it...sometimes as high as 4800 mgs and sometimes as low as 1200 mgs.

Of course I add the caveat that I could be wrong, but that is what popped into my mind when I read your post.
Best of Luck,

Diane
