St johns wart. 3.50 @ Walmart. I take 1 in the morning and one before bed. The full dose is 2 3x daily. Meditation helps and eating a clean diet helps as well.

Smoke a joint and you wont have any need for medication!

Be extremely careful about adding supplements without consulting your doctor. Some of them (like St. John's Wort) interact badly with other medications. And I'm sure you've heard this before, but therapy really is the best way to reduce your symptoms. The medication is only masking the symptoms.

Excercise outside. Eating organic. Doing a cleanse to rid of the chemicals

Have you thought of switching to Klonopin? It's longer acting and doesn't make you crash after it wears off.
