Wow! I never responded back...sorry guys! Just came back to revisit for a little spell and saw this. I KNOW I meant to! lol
So I tried Bacopa, which I had really high hopes for but man that just kicked me in the butt and made me turn into the biggest of sloths! So, THAT is out! I did try 1/2 tab at night to see if it would work as a smooth sleep aid...nope even just half a tab had me graoggy in the morning...but that could have happened with anything, 'cause at that time I was going through a major physical depression with the blaahs and brain fog.
It is amazing how incredibly sensitive I am to the seasons; as soon as the days really started getting longer, my body responded a little in kind. Lots of busy activity will do it too. But even still, there is often an underlying depression. So, I just got back from seeing my pdoc (1st time in 6 mos...8-/) And we altered the lithium back down to 600mg...900 was just too dampening; had a major loss of empathic emotions, lots of brain fog and slow recall. And he added Celexa 10mg/day for the first wk and then 20mg/day.
still taking Vitex...any women out there who get super irritable during your cycle, it is a lifesaver for everyone around you!
I'm not very good to sticking with supplements, wish I were. But so far, I feel like my energy has picked up and hopefully that underlying greyday will fade out soon.
Hombre: What are good stess hormone cleansers? I could take that around 10 PM from the sounds of the liver times (? yes?) or would that be for kidney/adrenal times?
Morgan: How is the LDN working for you? And what is your opinion on Celexa?
Johnnybaklava: Is the DMAE still working well for you? How long did it take to notice a difference?
Thx for all the input!
