    I'm (NOT!) going to shut down this site... :(

    Kelly! We've never met, but you are awesome :D I recently wondered how your site was doing. I used to be here all the time. I've been off of it for several years now because, well, things got better. Much, much better.....and have stayed that way for longer then I was originally depressed...

    5HTP Absolutely stunned

    Supplements that can cause Anxiety. No, I'm not kidding you. I'm not sure what is "disturbing". Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid increase histamine levels, especially the latter. You can find information about this almost anywhere. This can be very important to people who have issues with...

    5HTP Absolutely stunned

    Diana_Elaine, No parent with good intentions should feel guilty. You are trying to do the best with what you can. That is what everyone does on here. AD's may be the route to stay for now, but I think it would be a terrible waste not to see him checking into his Nutrition, Vitamins and...

    Question About Taking SJW With Other Vitamins

    Sorry, but I can't have this nonsense floating around on here without at least saying something. "There is no sense of consuming more amounts of supplements in order to have more vitamins because our body accepts only the required amount of nutrient." This is just plain wrong, and seemed to be...

    4 months later..update

    Just curious as to why you stopped wheat, dairy, sugar and soy? Is it due to Food Intolerance or GI Issues?

    5HTP Absolutely stunned

    @ Kokas, You're right about about Serotonin being involved, though its not only (or sometimes, at all) low Serotonin level that can cause OCD and its symptoms, it's improper/insufficient usage of Serotonin by the brain as well. Some OCD suffers have a fairly average Serotonin level, though it...

    Nothing works for me. I am trying STW

    I have never heard of anyone using Tyrosine in a spray. I really hope that it is legit and you are properly absorbing it. I would personally choose pill form (I would hate to think you aren't getting the benefit from Tyrosine and give up), but it's your choice. T Tyrosine also needs a few weeks...

    Nothing works for me. I am trying STW

    If Wellbutrin helped then there must be some connection to Dopamine and NorEp. That's not to say everything is caused by Dp/NorEp, but it may be a crucial part. I am concerned about the mania you mentioned, are you Bi-Polar? Or what exactly do you mean by Mania? Tyrosine and Phenylalanine...

    Nothing works for me. I am trying STW

    Wanderer, I understand how frustrating this is, but I believe you are relying to heavily on these NT tests. I'm not trying to discredit them, though you may have to look elsewhere for more clues as annoying as that sounds. I KNOW I have already suggested some of this...But I never heard if you...

    Question About Taking SJW With Other Vitamins

    Salcas, Fish Oil, is another thing that can stimulate people at night. Don't worry, I won't keep mentioning more and more. But these 4, are bad for keeping people awake, although usually good (depending on yourself) when taken earlier in the day. 1. B-Complex (Can keep you thinking about...

    Question About Taking SJW With Other Vitamins

    Hi Salcas, What time of the day are you taking each of these? Most likely culprit is the B Complex (only taken in the morning, never past 3pm), closely followed by Tyrosine (which should not be taken after 3pm either) and rarely some people find magnesium stimulating, rather then sedating...

    Side effects -- help please

    Hi Kokas, Are you taking it with food? or without? Is the capsule Enteric coated? Many people have digestive issues with 5-HTP, though this usually settles down after 2 weeks and is much better when taken with food (a large meal is best). You may also need to lower the dosage to start 50mg/Per...

    Question About Taking SJW With Other Vitamins

    Salcas, Your plan sounds fine, many people on here have combined what you have but only you can keep track of how you feel, so pay close attention. I would be careful with taking too many Multi/Fish Oil's each day, until you see that they do not cause anxiety. Your choice, but maybe start with...

    Question About Taking SJW With Other Vitamins

    Hey Salcas, I am not a fan of the B-Complex with depression, and the reason for this is that B-Vitamins can really affect depression. Sometimes this can be good, or sometimes cause more problems (mostly with Anxiety/Sleep). Individual B-Vitamins allow you to see what may or may not be...

    Question About Taking SJW With Other Vitamins

    Hi Salcas, What you have described sounds most like a Low Dopamine/NorEpinephrine (NorEp) type depression. Of course it isn't as easy as just saying that, though your symptoms point in that direction. Firstly, these supplements can help and in most cases really do, but if you have something...

    Please help me!

    Supplements can and do help, though they are only a piece of each persons depression/anxiety puzzle. But I agree with Robertz. Testing is VERY important. It can save alot of time if done correctly. Stool test included... :D

    Nothing works for me. I am trying STW

    Hey wanderer, I've been meaning to write back to you, though I've been very busy. It's late, I hope this will all make sense....:laugh: Firstly, it is your choice, though I would still wait until 6 weeks, it does take more time to build up in some people. Alternatively, have you tried a...

    Please help me!

    Hey Eiji, Firstly, as always, everything I say on here is always your choice in the end. With that said... It depends on what exactly is causing your problem and that is not easy to just answer, so many people try a few different things... Firstly SJW acts like an Anti-Depressant (though it...
