HI, so you have the script vitamin D too.
I have always been very very wary of supplements even to the point of taking regular vitamins. But, after being so hopeless with nothing else helping the medical problems which result in neurological symptoms that go so severe I cannot even bear to go back to that moment (magnesium and potassium saved my life). And, then I got the benefit of something else...some relief from my mental health problems too. So much so, I went off my klonopin, zoloft, and neurontin. (The neurontin was for what they deemed to be peripheral neuropathy, pain from sciatica, and was also for my mental health too). Guess what, the magnesium worked better than the neurontin for the (supposed neuropathy), and the pain too.
I still get pain, but not as bad when I take magnesium every single day. I hate being sick, but love having something that helps ease my suffering some that is for sure. I am not saying I never need to get another med though. My hubby is afraid for me to go back on medication because he says I am better on the magnesium. I sleep better, feel better, can move around much better including taking care of basic needs that most people would take for granted. And now I know, I cannot have too much calcium. It undoes the emotional benefits. I am babbling on babble again.
I am afraid that nothing else will ever work this well for the mental health, even though I want the OCD to go bye bye. I am scared of meds in general because I still have this crazy idea in my head that even though my labs are ok for now, that I am in the beginning stages of losing kidney function. Only time will tell with this.
So as you have done, I will definitely keep taking a few things like this. I may look into the valerian and see if it adds any other benefit.
Thanks for replying and have an awesome Sunday
