In addition to meds (i recently went back on more) I still do take a multivitamin, extra b complex + c and flax oil. My doc recommended this to me.
My dr suggest Vitamin D, but I forget to take it
I just googled niacin due to your post about it being a treatment before modern anti-depressants, its also known as B3 so next time I get my b complex I am going to see how much niacin is in there.
Quoting ZombyMommy:Ditto on the b complex; also vitamin d and niacin. Niacin was the vitamin treatment for depression before all the antidepressants came out.
b-complex is recommended as far as vitamins go
All 'natural' treatments are just as much drugs as anything that comes in a pill bottle.
Please be sure to inform your doctor of any herbs, supplements, or similar products that you intend to take, before you start taking them. Make sure these products will not make a bad combination with any prescription or over the counter medicines you take, and check with your doctor before you start to determine if the natural product you are considering, could interact badly with any medical conditions you have.
B vitamins are good for a lot of things. You could even look up fresh fruits and veggies that have b vitamins in them and incorporate them more in your diet as getting your vitamins and minerals from food is the best for your body.
I take the B's, omega & iron......I am going to start taking Rhodiola for stress & anxiety....I am NOT taking any more AD's that cause me to be tired all the time, no motivation and gain weight....
