Supplement Addiction

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

I really think I am addicted to ST John's Wart, 5-HTP and DHEA, I could probably go on. Since my late 30's I've been experiencing really bad mood swings (horrible mood swings emoticon emoticon emoticon) and by 40, it was on. I probably should have gone to the doctor's, but I am a self proclaimed physician so I decided to treat myself. Anyway, I attempted to stop taking St. John's Wart (slowly weaning my self off). Well last week was my 1st week not taking any and I was fine. No road rage, no Co-worker rage, nothing. Well yesterday, NO FOOD and NO SUPPLEMENTs made Lynn a very ugly girl. So this morning, I'm back on my self prescribed meds...I think I will be on these for the long haul.

    It's probably time for you to see a Doctor and let them help you workout a plan for vitamin's...

    I can get hormonal a week before TOM and I take the St. John then - it does help

    Be careful...I have had other friends to take St. Johns Wart and it seemed to help them...

    Oh no! Be careful and wean off slowly. Your body has adjusted to the supplements.
