At last, some sleep....
March 25, 2013
I am a long-term anxiety sufferer. I first started taking Herb Pharm Oat Seed (in alcohol) five years years ago. When ever I ran out my husband could tell within a couple of weeks and ask me to get back on it. Life would get busy and I found it harder and harder to remember to buy a bottle, then I just never got around to it any longer. It was not something I wanted to order online due shipping prices for such a small item.
I had been using yoga, exercise, & diet to try to keep my anxieties in check, but recently there has been a change in my medication and I was insomniac and too tired to keep up my anti-anxiety schedule. My MD did prescribe me some Xanax, which I will not take more than 1/2 pill two or three nights in a row. I used teas, but then I was up using the rest room a couple of times in the night.
I went back to my trusty neighborhood store and they no longer carried this tincture. So I came to Pure Formulas, who offers free shipping, and thought I'd try the glycerin bottle instead.
I don't know if it's working as well as the one in alcohol. It tastes much worse. I could use the alcohol one in water, I cannot do that with this glycerin ... but orange juice does mask the taste quite well.
I have been taking about 20 drops twice a day for almost a week and have found myself sleeping quite a bit better without the use of any teas.
Cons:Tastes horrible, must mask in orange juice.
