Thanks for the replies. I have a friend whose p-doc requested blood work at the onset of his treatment to rule out any obvious deficiencies that could possibly be exacerbating the issue. He thinks she was mostly looking for Vitamin deficiencies, specifically vitamins that have been know to affect mood. I thought just for grins I'd see what my vitamin levels are just to rule out anything obvious. I'm by no means expecting a "cure" (so to speak), but if taking a vitamin supplement would potentially provide a 5% relief of symptoms, I'd take it! LOL.
After I posted, I found this interesting article here about
