Hi Carol. I guess there are diffferent ways to look at this. I tend to fall into the camp that says depression is the cause of your symptoms. And that unless that is addressed, no energy boosters are likely to help much. If they would, then a gallon of coffee should do the trick. But I doubt it would, right?

In the old days depression was treated with stimulants. Even today it's still treated that way sometimes in senior citizens. And stimulants are commonly used as boosters for antidepressants. If you make your case well, you could convince a cooperative doctor to start you on a prescrip stimulant as a first-line choice. Rather then going the normal route of SSRIs with the possibility of eventually ending up with a stimulant. Just a thought. A simple commonly prescribed stimulant, like Ritalin for ADD, might be just what you need to get the chemistry thing in balance. I mean, after all, they prescribe this stuff to millions of children all the time. I don't agree with that issue, but that's another story... Just wanted to point out that there are simple prescrips that might be all you need. And if children can take them....

Also I was curious. You mentioned everything in the health store has been tried. What is everything? I assume ginseng, gingko, stuff like that. What else? Can you supply a list of what has been tried and for how long on each? There may be other options overlooked, like DHEA for example. Or if you tried that, maybe something else. I'm curious as to what has already been tried and for how long. You have my curiosity and I will look forward to your next post. :)
