    Hi Caledonia,

    So to clarify...are you getting both your b12 and folic acid in the multivitamin, or are you taking an additional extra b12/folic/folate?

    Also, are you taking 'folic acid' or one of the active forms?

    Thanks. :)

    Thanks...doctor wanted me to start low since I have wierd reactions to almost everything. First we tried it for sleep but it did nothing (100mg). So I bought a brand which is just 5HTP with nothing added (valerian etc.) and will start low in the morning and see how that works.

    its always a tough call on what to take. Increasing fish intake or fish oil supplements can assist. I've been on effexor and it has helped a lot with energy. Initially i couldnt do much for the first month but afterwards, i could start working more. Its hard to come off and ive been on it for four years but it has helped plenty.

    DHEA works for me -- stops a panic attack that goes on forever in half an hour. I think an adrenal glandular would have a good chance of working also due to freeing up pregnenolone to make more DHEA. I don't do meds ever -- I am too sensitive to drugs of all kinds.
