Thanks for the Lithium study link, Thanks everyone for opinions, so this list is given at the bottom. The SSRIs have many flaws as you have said, chronic therapy reduces cortisol?. They (Luvox and celexa)can actually inhibit melatonin metabolism and increase it's half life and serum conc. However, SSRI therapy of course decreases melatonin to serotonin ratio(which is bad). The list of pro-life antideps
1> Selegiline (dose=?, too much can cut life short or cause serotonin syndrome or psychosis)
2> Mirtazapine (15-45mg) and Mianserin(10-90mg)
3> Melatonin supplements from 300 mcg (and possibly agomelatine- never tasted it, think it'll take a century before approval all places)
4>Cyproheptadine (8-16mg) (May not be antidepressant)
5> Lithium(dose=? even 50mg can protect neurons, bipolar people use 150-900mg generally)
6> Tianeptine (25-37.5mg)[CAUTION - WORKS REVERSE OF SSRIs and increases Serotonin uptake]
7> Antiepileptic Phenytoin (100-300mg)
8> ?? any more, SaMe? Valproate?
Anyone takes selegiline, then age(atleast roughly) and dose please and any particular good or bad effect.
