I suffer from atypical depression myself (for about
the last 15 years) and have tried paxil, thyroid meds and testosterone therapy to help. Mine comes and goes so its always hard to tell if anything helps or if I just "cycle" out of it. I did see something in Wikipedia about
chromium, here is the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atypical_depression
Not sure if it would help but I have heard it does help with insulin/blood sugar management. Its commonly used in conjunction with weight loss supplements here in the US. Its not a magic bullet but may be something that helps a little.
