It took some trial and error to find the right dose but it was worth the effort. While most take 2-3 pills a day I found that taking only a 1/2 tablet every other day is what fits my system. I have been taking it at this dose for about 9 months now and find I sleep better, am less anxious, can think more clearly and am less depressed. Higher doses had side effects like insomnia and increased anxiety, if you get either of these problems try lowering the dosage amount or increasing the time between doses before just giving up. I tried other brands and found them to be quite different in effect. For example, one left me very sensitive to bright light while this one doesn't have that effect at all. If you tried brand x and it didn't work, don't lose hope, just try a different brand.

I found this to be very helpful since I took myself off of Zoloft. However I was not aware of the fact that St. John's Wort reduces the eficacy of birth control pills. Luckily since I'm already on a bc pill with a VERY low amount of estrogen, all it did was make my period start early; but it could have been an unwanted pregnancy there!

After taking one pill Kira I had a horrible migraine headache, so bad I was throwing up. The same thing happened when I took just 25 mg of 5-htp. I believe it's an individual intolerance, but if you are prone to migraines, be careful, start with a small dose. I really hoped this would help, since I don't want to go back on paxil, unfortunately I can't tolerate it.

I love my St. Johns Wort and I read the reviews on Kira and thought it would be better than what I was taking. I don't feel much of a difference except in my pocket book. Not sure I will buy again.
