I do. But I take prescription meds also. There are plenty of vitamins and herbs for depression though.

 you can take a multi vitamin for your overall health but that is not going to do anything i wouldnt imagine for your depression. have you thought about st johns wort? omega 3? flax seed? i would look up natural remidies and go with that.

I do take meds but a multivitamin does help.  can you got to a doc and get some bloodwork to see if you have vitamin and mineral deficiencies?   vitamins that help are b complex with c.  Omega 3's either from fish, flax, or hemp do help.  Magnesium helps.  getting out in the sun helps. aromatherapy with lavender and citrus esssential oils help. There are some herbs too but do your research with those.

Why did you say do some research with those? Is there something wrong with natural herbs?

Some herbs are quite powerful and have interactions to other health problems. I use herbs all the time like ginger and cinnamon for their many benefits and tumeric for my arthritis and eczema.  But for me, St. johns wort will make me sick after a while.

I think herbs are great :)
