It has always seemed to me that nutrition, even supplements comes down to placing everything in balance - that's why I've always liked things like adaptogenic herbs because they to some extent seem to do that for you. I totally agree with mixing the mood-stabilizing things and the 'upper' things - this has always been a problem with me, and often used to make me think if I was getting anywhere at all, or making more of a mess! Now I think with hindsight it WAS helpful, even if it was difficult getting the desired results. I used to mix a 'brain formula' containing tyrosine and lots of B vits with things like 5htp or lithium orotate - it felt like I had to balance both sides of the seesaw.
I also noticed a good effect on sleep from inositol. I noticed it's effects for this were stronger when taken with niacinamide and vit C.
Good luck with it - I hope it's good for you!
