  1. I might have to try now. I'm feeling so bad with withdrawals from drugs. I ordered tyrosine and tryptophan and I will give it a try! I hope it will make it easier to withdraw from drugs!
  2. anti-med. that's because I've suffered from worsening of my condition, long term on meds. finally I found natural effective alternatives. I'm on gluten-free-casein-free diet and I take high amounts of vitamins-minerals from hardynutritionals.com. and I'm finally healing!! in a way that meds never did for me.
  3. actually, my main supplement is Daily Essential Nutrients it has a wide range of vitamins and minerals with high doses. surf around on this webpage, to get more information, why this works. it's the same formula as Truehope Empowerplus. I started to take also aminos, because I was getting bad withdrawals from reducing my meds. and I was very suprised how well and fast the aminos worked. I believe in complexes, because usually the things work in cooperation with eachother. I'm also on gluten free casein free diet. you can google that and opioid peptides. I have been doing those things for half a year and at the same time reducing my meds. before that I was so seriously ill. I'm not healthy now but I'm a lot better and I have strong hope for the future.
  4. I'm taking Daily Essential Nutrients and Free form amino acids and I'm finally getting better. drugs didn't help me and caused actually more problems in long term. So it really does work.
  5. thank you, Jono! Yes, at last somebody replies! :) yes, gluten free life can be quite stressful at first. in psychiatric disorders, gluten and casein may both be culprits, so if one wants to try, both should be eliminated. and it may take a while to see results, several months. for me, first 3 months were the hardest and very stressful, I had to think what to eat all the time. after that it became much more easier, because I had developed already some new habits. but there is no way of knowing who might benefit and who will not. I'm sorry, that you didn't see any improvement. but at least now you know!
  6. I have exactly the same problem and I have understood that I'm 95% sure it's caused by prozac!! I have been taking prozac now for over a year and I have suffered from hypersomnia the same time. I'm trying to slowly come off prozac, but withdrawal is bad and I'm very sensitive to decreasing the amounts (I have now come down from 40mg to 22mg). seems that my nervous system is totally messed up by SSRI-s. my story is longer written out in here http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/4865-rapunzel2-a-mess-with-drugs/
  7. check out www.truehope.com and their empowerplus. also google gluten-free-casein-free diet, leaky gut, opioid peptides. good luck! :)
  8. I'm so sorry for the outcome. I know you have done everything possible... I'm basically on the same route, coming off medication. But I'm trying a natural route instead. www.truehope.com, compound Empowerplus. and I'm on gluten free casein free diet. And a big eye opener for me was Robert Whitaker's book "Anatomy of Epidemic". it's possible to download it from here http://www.upload.ee/files/3450115/Anatomy_of_an_Epidemic_-_Robert_Whitaker.pdf.html
  9. google Truehope Empowerplus, this may be an alternative.
  10. as you are desperately searching for answers, have you looked into Truehope Empowerplus? search youtube for truehope bipolar impossible cures. .
  11. I'm glad and I really hope this book helps. psychiatry nowadays does NOT look at brain and body connection, but there are so many things in the body that can go wrong and influence the brain.
  12. please buy and read this book http://www.amazon.com/The-Breakthrough-Depression-Solution-Personalized/dp/1934716154/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364048919&sr=8-1&keywords=depression+breakthrough it discusses testosterone and depression link in men, and what to do. as well as many other things.
