Wellbutrin does inhibit the reuptake of dopamine. I don't know how strong this action is. I wonder if it doesn't mostly act by inhibiting the reuptake of norepinephrine (the brains's version of adrenaline). It certainly felt completely different from amineptine a med Iíve also taken that solely blocks the reuptake of dopamine.
At first when I took Wellbutrin I experienced good mental energy; better attentiveness, clarity, less fatigue and sleepiness. After a few weeks though I started to feel tense all the time, like I had too much attentiveness. It was painful to concentrate. I became irritable and impatient. I also felt spacey, like my head was a helium balloon on the end of a string. My energy in sports also was flattened. I quit taking it after 2 months of use. It never did raise or lower my mood. Just my experience. Maybe my dosage wasn't correct.
DJ,
I don't know how much vitamin D you should take. I presume the amount that you would find in a multivitamin would be sufficient.
As far as the TMG, that mix you bought sounds good. I take 1000mg. a day. I don't feel any different when I'm taking it. I just take it for its espoused general health benefits. Some people, I would think, will experience an antidepressant effect.
One other thing I take that may interest you is omega 3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil, orange flavored cod liver oil to be exact. It is available at health food stores. It has been shown to help some people with depression but most people take it for the cardiovascular benefits and general brain health Take one tablespoon a day or as directed.
I don't know if hypotension is associated with Paxil and the other seretonin active med.s you mentioned.
