Ahhh.. kind of opposite with me.. well PS - along with some other OTC products that I was taking, and taking very aggresively (things like Relora and Holy Basil and amino acis Glutamate w/ NAC, etc., etc.... and I was taking 800mg of PS daily know matter what other supps I was also taking for anti-cortisol) allowed me to get my cortisol levels down to 108, with a reference range of 20 - 100.. close... but when I stopped them for just two weeks prior to my next test, my cortisol was back up to 240-something... so clearlt by HPA Axis hadn't re-set (or my cortisol levels would started normalizing rather than going back up).
I had some significant sedation effects on first few days when dose was at 15mg but since I've gone to 30 mg I've had that swdation almost completely disappear. Appetite had no increase at 14mg and maybe a very, very slight increase at 30 mg... As to cortisol levels, won't know for about a month as
next testing time is around July 20th...
> Remeron has its strong points. Unfortunately it made me want everything in the house. 25 pounds later I gave it up. I did a trial of tianeptine a few years ago and felt absolutely no effect. I think phosphatidylcholine is helpful as an anti-cortisol agent.
