sorry,I'm not an advocate of any psychiatry drugs,I don't believe in their effectiveness. I believe they treat the symptoms not the disease. I refer you to scientology.com
If you are interested I've also included a program that saved my life six years ago.
Here is the best remedy I know for ridding yourself of depression:
1. Clean up , get done the various jobs you've been "meaning to do". 2. Bring yourself up to date socially and write a letter, make a call, or see the people you've neglected. 3. Take a 1 hour walk everyday. Start at home for 1/2 an hour and then walk back,a different direction every day. If you can't walk do something physical, throw something for 1/2 an hour, if you can't throw,spit for 1/2 an hour- this is meant literally. 4. Get a physical examination ( not a psychological exam ) and fix those things that are chronic. 5. Take twice a day 100mg. of B1 and 250mg. of vitamin C. I would also recommend Calmax nightly ( from health Usa 1800-523-8899) 6.If specific to you give up pornography, soap operas and the news for at least 2 weeks as all these things can cause restimulation.
If you do these things you will feel much improved. I dare you to do the above and feel the change. This is good advice. But it is better than advice. It's an invitation to start living. How about it?
