I purchased a bottle of ashwagandha last night. It is the Himalaya brand 2.96 withanolides.
I took it for the first time about 5pm and felt drunk/high/extremely tired and foggy in the head till I went to bed @ midnight. It was a pretty awfull feeling. I felt a little light headed today from it too.
Did I buy the wrong type of Ashwagandha? Is this a normal feeling for first time use and does it get better?
background of why I purchased it:
I have some social anxiety and lack of confidence issues that I am dealing with. I heard Ashwagandha is a good adaptogen for this. Also, I have been dead tired everyday, all day for about 3 months straight. I take adderall to try and give me a boost, but no matter how much I take I don't have the energy to do anything. It is a really awfull feeling and I am just wondering what it is.
