Discussions that mention xanax

Alternative Medicine board


Alright here's the facts,
I'm an 18 year old female, i've been suffering from major depression for over two years now as well as anxiety issues and panic attacks. my list of previous medications include Effexor, Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Prozac, Atavan, Xanax, and a couple things for sleep. oh, i don't sleep. Currently i'm taking 100mg of zoloft.

i was wondering if anyone could inform me on options like St. John's or SAMe.. or maybe even just a good multivitamin to boost my energy.

to keep in mind: i have trouble swallowing large pills

Have you tried counseling? A good counselor trumps any amount of drugs for the long term. In the short term, I would suggest L-Tryptophan. It's natural. It's an anti-depressant and a sleep aid. You can get it online, but I've also recently seen it at my local health food store. And, I'm talking about L-Tryptophan *not* 5-HTP. 5-HTP is like Tryptophan's ugly step-child. It's terrible. But Tryptophan is really good.

However, I reiterate, none of it is worth anything unless you are able to talk out your problems with a good counselor.

Good luck with it.

Best,
