I forgot to mention Doxepin - it's an antidepressant (almost certain) that's also good for itching related to DH (not that you have that). I take it before I go to sleep along with the Formula 303- works really well. Just an idea. Susan
Yea, you are right. It is a very old anti-depressant, they don't use it much for just that purpose these days. It slows motility and is pretty good for itching.
If anyone starts that though, start on a weekend. The first time I took it, I think I slept for about 16 hours. =) That wears off pretty quickly though.

be aware that it is contraindicated to be on 5htp and an antidepressant at the same time. (not saying anyone here is - I was on 5htp before starting an antidepressant (cymbalta, for fibromyalgia), and had to discontinue the 5htp. good to know about these things ahead of time.)
You are so right about the antidepressants.......and I totally forgot that one should wait 6 hours to space out 5HTP if any alcohol has been consumed. Sorry for the memory lapse!

I can't get my son to do the sublingual form of B12.. Is there another way to do this for a child?
Thanks for any suggestions,

Coming off the Effexor was a nightmare. Anxiety 24/7. insomnia, multiple panic attacks daily. I am committed to supplements for this reason.
I definitely get alot more anxiety/panic attacks/insomnia from being glutenned. It depends alot on my overall situation and stress in my life, but my body reaction to Gluten is the biggest stress of all.
I was eating Gluten in June without even knowing it (someone elses cooking) and I was layed out with anxiety I could barely make it throught the day and was heavily meditating and practicing my breathing exercises to get through work. Scary.
Here's what is working for me now: Gluten free, no sugar, cut the coffee back (even one cup is noticeable. Exercise, breathing and meditation. I take a liquid form of Magnesium with Calcium, 5 HTP 50mg x3 a day, and, believe it or not NIACIN!, which was a wonderfull discovery. I take the Fish OIL, and multi-vitamins religiously. And its working, knock on wood. I sleep through the night, and although I wake early.
