Anyone tried this stuff as an adjunct to meds? I need anxiety relief. I bought some yesterday after seeing some research that looked promising.

I take it for the possible memory improvements as I'm on two ACs which have the reputation of causing memory issues. It might be helping.

I have not noticed any positive effects for anxiety.

I read somewhere that it takes two weeks to have an anxyolytic effect. How long have you been taking it?

about a month and a half, roughly.  To be fair, there isn't a ton of anxiety left after my RX.

Gabapentin and lamotrigine pretty much take care of it. Oddly enough bupropion didn't increase my anxiety, it decreased it slightly. Any change from the ashwagandha would be marginal in my case and pretty hard to detect.

Yeah, I probably won't notice it either, being on Xanax atm. Gabapantentin was suggested to me but I gained weight on Lyrica so didn't want to risk  it since both meds are similar.
