> What do you use & what sort of success have you had in dealing with what type of depresssion??

I started out using 5HTP, and had good response as far as my mood, but it invariably made me hypomanic. I switched to tryptophan (available by prescription only, unfortunately), and had good results. It's like using a very subtle antidepressant. I occasionally supplement with tyrosine or phenylalanine, but that doesn't seem to hit the spot as much with me. I got all of this from the Slagle book, which I can't recommend enough. And it's cheap!

My depression was mild to moderate, occasionally peaking into major. I have nothing against mainstream antidepressants, but the side-effects starting getting psychological-psychiatric, and that I couldn't take.

Right now, I'm trying intensive psychotherapy combined with amino acids as needed. It's been hairy at times, but worth it.
