Im trying out sjw for anxiety/ ocd symptoms exacerbated by hormonal pp swings. Im irritable alot of the time but much more so in the second half of my cycle. Ive been feeling like I could be a much better mama and partner if I could get a handle on these feelings.
Ive been seeing a therapist for about a month every week. I went to my doc and she wanted me to try sjw before other meds to see if it would work.
So my situation is...
Ive been taking 450 mg a day for three days now. I am nursing my 11 month old. He hasnt slept well for two nights. Although hes had lots of sleep problems ( hence my low seratonin). Ive had side effects of horrible.nightmares, fatigue, fogginess, racey feelings, anxiety with small bouts of feeling a little more positive .. a little better. The nightmare was the worst thing so far.
Have any of you mamas taken sjw and had these issues? Will it get better after a week or two? Im just interested to hear others experiences and looking for support bc the fact that I dont know if this is or isnt worth it to me is kind of driving me even crazier..kwim?
Thanks so much mamas!!
