    No i have not used St. John's wart. Dr. Hale has a website infantrisk.com where you can look up that information.

    Thanks...I've already called infantrisk and they rate it L2. There seems to be some conflicting research, though. I am just looking for some real life experiences.

    I have a thyroid condition which makes me prone to anxiety. And I am EXHUASTED, which makes symptoms worse. Just looking for a little boost while I muddle through life. I reluctantly tried zoloft for anxiety in the past and had TERRIBLE side effects. I will not try another med like that.

    A few nights of uninterrupted sleep (maybe 3 hours?) would be blissfull.
