I am currently taking Sepia 30c for mood swings and general irritability. I had a baby girl 8 weeks ago and struggled with severe post-partum depression with my other two children (both boys). I took St. John's wort with my second son and that seemed to work pretty well, but I read some conflicting reports about St. John's wort this time around, so I wanted to try something different. I took the Sepia 30c (5 pellets 3 times /day) for two weeks (which I now realize is a pretty high dosage), but I felt great and connected with my boys in ways that I hadn't been able to in a long time. I really felt better than I have since I had my first child seven years ago. When I ran out of the remedy, I was irritable and weepy again within two days. My life is way too busy; I don't sleep much,and I could work 24 hours a day for the next 3 months and still not be caught up. I know that I need to slow down, but that is not something I can adjust for a while. I know that a lot of my irritability comes from life stress, but I also come from a long line of manic-depressive women and that my mother did not have a lot of life stress and was still highly irritable. I'm just trying to get something that will help me until I can slow my lifestyle down, and this seems to do the trick.
My question, then, is whether or not Sepia is safe to take indefinitely in the dosage I've been taking.
Any suggestions you have would be great!
Thanks so much!
