There's conflicting evidence for efficacy, but a lot of support for trying it as a first line treatment due to the low cost. SLS, this isn't something I want to throw out in public -- sorry, long story, trigger subject for me -- but if you want to drop me an email I'll offer up what I do know on the subject. Basically, though, I've seen it help a heck of a lot, so you're probably onto something and it just might be helpful for you. I wish you the best, always, and hope that you do find something good. Let us know your results, of course.

Cyproheptadine (Periactin) is antiseritonergic, according to the drug monograph. I'm sorry you don't feel comfortable talking about it here, but you have certainly raised my curiosity.
