I was on SAM-e for about
three years and it pooped out on me. I went to General Nutrition center and was told that one should stop Amino acids for a few months and then get back on them because our bodies get used to them and we don't feel as good. I just started to take L-Theanine Calmplex that has GABA and 5-HTP in it. I no longer have any anxiety and my depression has lifted a bit as well. I love being so calm!
However, I feel I need more as I feel the depression in the background and the lady at GNC thought I might do well on Magnesium/Calcium supplements, she said that was very helpful for depression and emotional PMS symtoms as well. She also suggested I take a good Multimvitamin and Amino Acid blend as well. I was prescribed Cymbalta, but do not want to deal with the side effects right now. I am going to try the natural route for awhile. Is anyone else going this route? I heard Cymbalta was not studied for major depression for more than 9 weeks!
