Started SJW a week ago on May 15, 2018 at a lower dose of 300 mg, 2x a day instead of 3x a day due to my smaller body size

I’m using Perika at standardized to 2% Hyperforin. I was doing fine the first four days on 300 mg, twice a day and actually started feeling a little better (believe it or not!) until I experimented on taking 2 x 300 mg in the morning and 1 x 300 mg in the evening on the fifth day and waking up feeling more down the following morning. Then I tried taking all 3 pills at once that morning on the sixth day and I felt miserable and very drowsy all day. Now I know not to take all 3 at once and I returned to my starting dose of 300 mg, 2x a day (one in the morning and one in the evening). I hope I did not mess up the work that SJW has started in me and that I would start feeling better again. Any thoughts would be appreciated by this newbie.

Hi Ramon, coco's message translates to mean, it's better to start with small doses. And I agree, see how the 600mg goes for you, you can always go to 900mg later. I like to take mine at night before bed.
