Sorry to hear about the symptoms, I hope withania starts helping.
Withania (AKA ashwagandha) is generally safe to take as part of a cocktail of supplements. So, for me at least, it's hard to seperate out the effects of it alone. But I used it, had no big side effects from it, but it did seem to regulate things better. I found licorice more powerful though. (Licorice tea is nice to down regulate highs.)
Withania is an aptogen - it helps rebalance the HPA. i.e. reducing the highs and increasing the lows. If you're taking it near bedtime it may increase the low cortisol during sleepy time. So maybe take it in the am, and maybe an hour after lunch? (Personally I'm reducing my afternoon rhodelia as I'm having a bout of seasonal overly early waking. It seems to help.)
