Hi everyone. Sorry for any mistakes, I’m still learning English. I suffer from anxiety and some kind of adrenal fatigue. My symptoms are: being tired all the time, even after good night sleep. I took “pupil test” and it dilated very fast.
I took many many supplements and take care of myself in general and my anxiety and fatigue improved. To help myself even more, I started taking Adrenal Cortex by Thorne. It’s day three today. First night after taking it I woke up around 3-4 am. Yesterday I slept quite good, but I was tired after waking up so early, we’ll see what will happen tonight.
First two days I noticed my anxiety was slightly worse. Today about hour after taking the pill, I felt nausea – it was strong feeling, I had to lay down. Couple hours later I have slight, strange headache. I’m more anxious and I have racing thoughts. A bit like after drinking too much coffee. I cut my caffeine consumption while taking this supplement, so it’s not it. Should I stop taking Thorne? Or wait longer for results?
Hi malenacorl. As far as I know, the Thorne supplement has all the cortisol removed. It certainly should be supportive of long-term adrenal health, but it shouldn’t have an immediate stimulatory effect.
Having said that, it’s perfectly possible that you might be having a reaction to something in the supplement. If your symptoms are mild, I would consider taking it for a few more days so you can properly judge whether it’s the cause of the nausea and insomnia.
Out of interest, what caused your adrenal fatigue in the first place?
Hello, thank you for your answer.
Gradually my anxiety (caused by stressful time at the university and later stressful job) was worse and worse. I was stressed all the time and my adrenals stopped working properly 😉
The worst thing with Thorne supplement is it made me very anxious. I had racing thoughts and I wasn’t able to do anything. I really can’t understand this reaction considering it has all cortisol removed.
Do you find yourself constantly fatigued, and struggling to get out of bed in the mornings? Do you feel unable to cope with stressful situations? If so, you might be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.
