A few words on supplements romeyjuju

A few words of wisdom:
A) You don't know if Effexor will be a good or bad match until the subject ingests it. Your anecdotal evidence will not apply to everyone.

B) Unproven and poorly understood "herbal" supplements are not going to be your magic bullet.

C) GABA is not an amino acid, it is a neurotransmitter. Unfortunately, it does not cross the blood brain barrier. Instead it is metabolized to PABA (yes, the PABA that every suncreen proudly announces it does not contain), which then crosses the blood brain barrier and is then converted to GABA as needed. GABA is essentially useless.

D) The Omega acids are your best bet, but look for small scale, long term improvement.

E) With this cocktail, it will be unlikely you will be able to eludicate a single agent that is causing improvement.
