Rhodiola and Licorice

Posted by Johnnybaklava on September 1, 2011, at 11:12:41

This is so typical: I find something that works, then something happens and I need to discontinue. I tried Licorice Root (450mg) and Rhodiola (240mg) last week. I didn't really notice anything, though my stress levels certainly went down. But, in retrospect, every day I was feeling better and better: more energy, less obsessive, generally happier. But then I started waking up earlier and earlier. Last night was the worst: after 5 hrs. of sleep I was wide awake, head buzzing in that way I remember from when I first started taking Zoloft. Now I don't know about licorice, but I know rhodiola can affect sleep, but I've been taking Gaia's adrenal formula for a year which has 120mgs in it and never had a problem. Now I'm adding 120mg of the Gaia rhodiola on top of that. During the day I don't feel a "buzz," really. And falling asleep isn't really the issue. A little melatonin and I'm out. But the early waking is frustrating and I can't imagine this small dose of rhodiola is the culprit. Maybe a synergistic reaction with the licorice? Maybe it'll resolve: I hope so. I love my days!
