Any Advice On Medications That Work Or Good Doctors In The Area

5 HTP is the precursor for serotonin.
Lowlevels cause depression.
In america you can luckily get it anywhere.

I take 100 mg mid morning and mid afternoon.

I just didn't seem to have enough to even start with, let alone keep it in the system.

Since I am on 5HTP my mood is relaxed and content. I sleep better.
Theanine is great for anxiety.

Try it.

Little to no side effects as it is a natural amino acid.

Hang in there.

I love my life. My fibro and brain chemical related problems cause the depression. NOT my ife.

See a rhuematogist that also treats fibromyalgia. The only thing I take is Cymbalta for pain and it works for me. Pain meds do not work at all. I take benedryl when I'm in pain so I can sleep. I wake up tired every day. I force myself to get up and shower.
