Ok, cool thread Phillipa.

I have improved globally maybe 25% over the last 3 years, and for random short times I was close to remission. While I have lots of physical issues, depression is still my biggest monster.

Meds are pretty out for me since I've been through most and the moral of the story was basically a worsened prognosis for me. I will be retrying Savella or Amisulpride in a month or so since they were about the only 2 that showed any promise for me. Parnate also, except that while I am treating lyme-like issues with herbs and ABX, I think that ventures too far into the unknown and could be dangerous with Parnate.

Doxycycline 200mg, down from 400mg.
Berberine Complex 2 caps TID.
Milk Thistle 125mg.
Rhodiola Rosea 125mg.
Maca Root tiny bit, maybe 1/16th teaspoon.
Strong vitamin/mineral with all sorts of fruits and veggies and mushrooms and stuff in it.
Cod liver oil.
Amino acids complete, experimenting on doses.
Houtyunnia TID (Chinese antimicrobial)

All the above are aimed at antimicrobial, anti inflammation, hormonal support/modulation. The only things there specific for depression are rhodiola and maca.

Things I want to try very soon:

1. Amino acid blood test so as to know which ones I need to boost or which ones need to be crowded out. They are all so much more involved in psychiatric symptoms than I was ever aware.

2. CES. Cranial Electrical Stimulation. A bit pricey, but home units can be purchased, 20 minutes twice a day, and after 60 days if it has not been helpful it can be returned for refund! Cool. This apparently has helped a lot of people because what it does is increase conversion of amino's to neuros, and it stimulates the firing and release of neuros. Meds, herbs, and aminos can increase our neuros, but if they are lacking in electrical activity the depression will not improve much.

3. Need to revamp my basics, for example I am pretty sure I need a lot more Vit C than I am taking now.

4. Retry Savella, retry Amisulpride, find a counterbalance amino to partner with Ritalin.

At least I have some clues.....there are two activities that can improve my mood a lot but only for a short time. Sex. And performing live on stage. That is very helpful because it sort of points at the chemistries involved...catecholamines, endorphins.
