  • ask your doctor or pharmacist so you don't take something that will counteract with your meds

  • get off anti-depresants and start taking lemon balm. it doesn't have any negative side effects at all. i thank God for it everyday b/c anti-depresants just make my symptoms worse and when i would be off ad's it was like i never took them to begin with. i stopped taking the lemon balm when i got preg. and i can tell it helped me.

  • Agreed, try a natural alternative to antidepressants like St Johnswort or Ashwaghanda or SAMe..

    For the libido, try maca,or damiana .

    Exercise is good for both.
