Anyone use any of them like St. John's Wort, or 5HTP, Sam-E, etc.. I know some can be hard on the stomach.
What are your experiences, doses and so on?
When I have emotional ups and downs in the past from thyroid/hormones/ or Seasonal stuff (SAD) then Wellbutrin has come in handy. So I was feeling pretty good, then all this stuff and I have really good days and I'm happy all day and then other days I want to be weepy/feel like crying or anxious. The Wellbutrin isn't doing it for me now b/c it makes me like a stoned zombie and I like to have *feelings* not feel emotionless and really bad insomnia (which is a side effect I just can't do).
So now...I'm wondering about the other things out there...Or hoping for several *good* days in a row. Hee hee. I can't figure out if it's something I ate that just gives me the emotions or what. I did have quinoa which is mixed with corn flour last night and I wonder if my body doesn't like corn stuff or something.
