Induced Depression
by Peter78
Citation:   Peter78. "Induced Depression: An Experience with Valerian (exp51238)". May 28, 2006.

3.6 mg oral Valerian (daily)


At first the valerian appeared to relax and calm me, taking 2 tablets night and day. I was taking it for generalized anxiety disorder. However, within a week I felt sleepy and groggy. I thought those symptoms would go awawy, which they did, but after another week I became extremely depressed, nervous, vague and foggy. I have stopped taking the Valerian for 24 hours so far but I still feel very bad. Hopefully this will remit soon.
