Paul B--

There seem to be a lot of differing opinions about
which is better: 5htp or L-tryptophan. What do
you think?
Also, how did you go about learning which of your
neurotransmitters is at the root of your depression?
I'd be interested in hearing more about that. I've
noticed that the ssri's work best for me, and that
wellbutrin and serzone make my depression worse. I don't
know if that indicates anything.
I'm now taking sam-e with prozac. I initially took
it to see if I could taper down on my dose of prozac and
substitute the sam-e, but my depression got too miserable
so I went back up on my prozac dose. The sam-e didn't
do much for my depression, but a surprise side effect
of it was that it made the pain in my feet that has kept
me from running for years go away! I've been running all
this past week with no problems. I'll continue to take
it just for that! Plus the running helps my depression more
than walking does.
Anyway, take care and thanks for the helpful info.
