Did you notice anything with the St. John's wort.

Some people, like me, responded to a very low dose of antidepressants, ie 10 mg of Celexa, augmented with many things.

1 thing you need to take is folic acid.
If you do have alcohol problems, then
it is likely you will be low in this vitamin.
infact, I never noticed any relief until
I added folic acid (1mg) to my current
antidepressant regime. This vitamin has
been shown to turn antidepressant nonresponders
into responders.

Secondly, you may want to try things like omega 3
fatty acids. I found great help with these.

Personally, I think the only relief is found with the combination of 3 things.

Correct medication,
Proper nutrition, and

But seriously speaking, I found only marginal (at best) relief with antiepressants untill I added folic acid (1mg), b12 50-100mg's and fish oil (omega 3's)

If anything, try the folic acid, it's extremely cheap, and very safe.

Good Luck
