Hi cfs since,

Good luck with whatever you decide. And let me know if you are able to come up with magic IV to take while you sleep!:Retro smile:

Take care,

HW

I used rhodiola for a while, than i started developing some hypomania symptoms. Later i read somewhere that increasing dopamine if person is low in serotonine could trigger hypomania. And again sometime later i read somewhere that rhodiola was dopamine enhencer. And i am low in serotonin. So, rhodiola was not a right choice for me.Not all of you may be low in serotonin.
Hi Cindi - Rhodiola appears to be a MAO inhibator - that it is enhances levels of serotonin, dopamine and cerebral norepinephrine. Thus its actions are not exclusively related to increasing dopamine.

Best wishes,

Yes they help a lot! I just discovered an Adaptogen called Jiaogulan (Gynostemma) and it is really making a difference for me. Since that helped so much I have looked at the information on the Dragon Herbs site devoted to Tonic (Adaptogen) herbs mostly from China but others as well. I have done a lot of reading and consulted with one of their herbalists and have been taking the herbal combinations recommended and it is working so far. I will need a few more months to see if I can keep going without a relapse but so far, so good and I feel much stronger!

I bought a very expensive Dragon Herbs sexual tonic called TomKat and it had less effect that the 12 times cheaper NOW maca lol what a rip off.
