what herbal rem. work beside ginsing?

I'm trying to get off a year of 150mg effexor, off now but only a few days and lots of side effects, also getting off a lifetime of drug and alcohol abuse, but I can oly make it a month of two and I usually relapse. I've had alot of fatigue off and on in my life due to depression too I imagine, but I'd like to be drug free, eventually. However if there is a good perscription that is no where near the side effects of effexor for FATIGUE, I'd take it, anyone? I also did ginsing and other adrenal gland stuff like astragulas root and licorice root and greens plus. So what else is there? I used to love going for walks and exercizing, now all I want to do is sleep. I feel lazy and apathetic, save the emotional roller coaster that is effexor withdrawal. I have 3 young kids and I CANT do this anymore, I'll try anything!

If your primary issue is Depression you might try that board. Also, the Alternative Medicine board. Gingsing is not right for everyone. I would suggest seeing a Naturopathic doctor or an herbalist to try to get back on track.
All the best-
