    Great. My PS comes in 100mg capsules. So start with 100, or 200?

    start with half of the 100mg cap, so 50mg. dont expect much from this dose though, just start slow incase u get a bad reaction. work your way up to 400mg or stop if u find a lower dose helps.

    You convinced me to resume taking PS 100 mg, which I had stopped on Christine's instruction. I had been taking it in the morning, but moved it to bedtime. That seemed to make my dreams worse, so I am now taking it in the evening about 3 hours before bed. I think it is OK. (There is too much going on in my life right now to know what is effecting what.)

    PS can be stimulating for some but is also known to be calming if one has high cortisol levels, trial and error again.
    Some PS products also contain phosphatidyl choline which can also be stimulating, the product madie used awhile ago that made her sleep bad was high in choline, so i will be interested to see how she goes this time. The PS i use doesnt say it contains choline, so it could be something to watch out for??

    Yeah, this one is pure PS. My cortisol is high at night, so I'm going to take it at bedtime.

    Mine (Jarrow) doesn't list any choline either, just vitamin E and pill components.
