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. :)

Hey JohnL,
Let's store - tried all the above, actually, every type of ginseng(korean, siberian, chinese red, american) plus all the "PEP" type stuff(usually, has Ma Huang in it). Inositol, 5htp(both actually recommended for depression), licorice, alfalfa, dong quai, CO Q-10, fish & flax oil(also, recommended for depression), green tea, other herbs I can't remember. About the only thing I haven't tried is SAMe, it's just so expensive! All the above were tried at least 6wks, some longer.
As for meds. Elavil, Zoloft, Prozac, Effexor, all for several months each. Have also done the ritalin thing, but got no results on highest dosage - 20mgs 3 times a day (did get nice results when I EXCEEDED dosage, but not a good idea to keep doing that, so stopped altogether!)
Currently on 400mgs Wellbutrin, but only on 4th week, so may need more time for effectiveness.
So, there ya go! Any comments? Anyone?
