I took the herbs every day twice a day. I saw immediate improvement and then after taking for about a month I noticed I was feeling fine and the weird foggy head and anxiety was almost gone and I was able to go out and about. It is now almost 4 months since I started taking it, and I stopped it about three weeks ago to see how I would do without it. I feel pretty good, occasionally if I am very tired or pre menstrual I might feel very slight anxiety but it soon passes. The agoraphobia which was the worst thing has gone . I am still going to acupuncture once a week and my doc reckons I suffer from heat in the body which causes the anxiety . I noticed that I was always thirsty and overheated long before I even started to suffer the anxiety which seemed to come out of the blue, so seems to make sense to me. Anyway the treatment has helped me so much and I can now do things which I could only dream of doing again when I was at my worst.
