Re: Sertraline side effects

I've tried about a dozen antidepressants, and most of them have caused me to experience unpleasant side effects. Two exceptions were agomelatine and selegiline. I took a low dosage of selegiline (5 mg). At this dosage, it's an MAO-B inhibitor, and only affects dopamine, so there were no dietary restrictions. At higher dosages, it also inhibits MAO-A, and then there are dietary restrictions.

The treatment I've benefited from the most, long-term, is neurofeedback. (This is widely available in Germany.)

A treatment that isn't available here in the US but is available in Germany is Whole Body Hyperthermia. In Germany, it's usually used to treat cancer and Lyme Disease. A recent study conducted by the University of Wisconsin and the University of Arizona found that sixty percent of people with major depression who received a single treatment of Whole Body Hyperthermia improved. Forty percent met the criteria for remission of depression. Their improvement lasted for six weeks. (It's possible that it lasted much longer, but there was no follow-up after six weeks.)
