So I looked into this and ended up buying some Nature's Way CalmAid off Amazon to give it a try.

It did seem to be very helpful for my post methylphenidate morning dose anxiety (oddly that's the only time of day I occasionally get anxiety from it). HOWEVER, the day after I felt kinda loopy....hypomanic, but racing thoughts about how everything makes sense etc etc.

I didn't link it to the Lavender, and ended up trying it again 2 days ago (this time only 1 pill instead of morning/evening as I did the first time), and I found myself spacey as heck again yesterday....but like teetering on "bad thoughts" (I know everything! There is no world, this is just my dream!).

So today as I'm kinda snapping out of that and back to being myself I queried reddit and found at least one mention of Lavender and mania here:

Guy got downvoted, cause I'm sure it doesn't precipitate mania in MOST people, but I really do think it touches on some receptor that maybe can set me off. 5-HTC1a? I dunno...but yea not going to test it anymore.

I have odd reactions to most supplements, though, so not surprising. Heartburn was the other prob I had (delayed - happened 12-24hrs after seemingly).

Glad it's working for you though, most reviews/anecdotes I read on it are extremely "OMG this really works!", and I did find it killed anxiety....
