I would personally recommend you research 2 things and decide whether or not you think they're worth a go. I agree with the last poster when it
comes to messing about with people's medication. I wouldn't try anything without researching it myself, so please do read up and educate
The first is magnesium supplements. Most people these days are deficient in magnesium to some degree, and a lot of depression and anxiety sufferers
who try magnesium supplements find that their depression can lift very quickly. To address a deficiency, it's best to attack from all angles. Try
supplements, plus eating magnesium rich foods (dried apricots, sesame seeds, kiwi fruit are just 3), and take regular long soaks in an epsom salt
bath, which will help you sleep as well.
The second is serotonin. Again, this is something that's missing from our modern industrialised diets. 5-htp is very good if you want to go down
the route of supplements, but my personal advice would be to get some milk kefir (ebay has it) and incorporate it into your diet, it's a good source
of tryptophan, which is what serotonin is made from.
