Dont bother with GABA supplements, it cant cross the blood/brain barrier and therefore is of no use. Its amazing to me they still sell it at health food stores. Fish oil, on the other hand, can be very helpful. Two points though: First, if you are using it as a source of DHA/EPA, make sure you get a good brand - I reccomend OmegaBrite to most folks, but there are others. Second, unless you regularly eat a lot of fish, your body wont be prepared to deal with these additional EFA's and as such you will need to take a fairly large dose for at least a month to see any additional benefit. Somewhere in the range of 2-5 grams per day. But at this dosage for a month, it would be unusual if you didnt see some improvement. You also might want to think about Inositol powder. You'll need to take ~15grams/day, but it's got a lot of research behind it shwing that it is at least as good as any AD - if taken at these levels.

As always, talk to your doctor before taking anything - supplement or otherwise.
