It may be that rhodiola is complicating the picture. You might want to get through a rough couple of days stopping it and then see how you do over a period of 2 weeks without it.

Rhodiola slows down the cortisol response. That is not a good thing if your cortisol is sub-normal. I have low cortisol and rhodiola is not good to me when I try it. Feels good at first, but then the fatigue, sleepiness, with weird anxiety mixed in with it all, creeps up on me and it takes me a while to figure out it is the rhodiola doing it. My doctor had me increase my dose at one time and within 2 days I was crying and sobbing I just wanted to die, and the whole time I was just sleepy yet wired with anxiety. So weird.

You can order a 4 sample per day saliva cortisol lab test online. It would be good to know what yours is, just so you would have a better idea of what herbs to consider, which to avoid, which meds to consider or avoid, and what foods to eat more of or avoid.
