I can really tell a difference with it. I sleep better and when I sleep better, everything improves! I can also tell that my mood has improved: I no longer have that constant overwhelming feeling of dispair.
Thanks goldencurly. I have a bottle of Deproloft in my cart right now. Do you happen to take St. John's Wort with it as it is not part of the formula anymore?
No I don't take St. John's Wort. I tried it on its own years ago with no success. I starting taking the Deproloft-HR hoping it would be great on its own. It has significantly improved my quality of sleep. I no longer wake up beserk and cannot go back to sleep. It lifts my mood and settles me down without making me feel like a zombie. I actually am calmer with more energy on it! This is the best I've felt in some time.

I don't know if brick and mortor stores carry Deproloft. I buy mine from Amazon.com. I wish they had it set up on the automatic thing so it would just come every month!!!

BAP do u also experience psychosis? I do. My delusions can get really bad. I also have voices in my head, my meds help with those tho.

It can be scary



Sent from my LG-LG730 using CurlTalk App
Not yet. The only voice I here is my own. Telling me crazy stuff. Like my good friend is turning against me, my boss is out to get me, the company is making changes JUST to screw with ME- (baby you just ain't that important. LoL!) I get super angry and just snap for no reason. Then I get mad at myself. I've cut myself before... Many times. Then you gotta explain the cuts, then later the scars.. Now I REALLY feel crazy!!!

I'm trying to deal with it through meditation. I used medication that was for depression, but I don't like how I feel on it. I feel artificially happy. Like numb. At first it was cool, but it didn't really treat the mania.

I'm hoping meditation and reflection will help. I'm "newly" Buddhist and meditation seems to be a really big deal.

Herbs and supplements are just as likely as medications to cause side effects, worsen health problems, and cause unsafe interactions with other remedies and medications. Before you start taking an herb or supplement, please check MedlinePlus for information on effectiveness, dosage, and dangers.

St. John's wort has several dozen drug interactions most of which are very dangerous. It can also cause a host of side effects.

St. John’s wort is LIKELY SAFE for MOST people when taken by mouth short-term.

Like conventional antidepressants, suddenly stopping St. John's wort may cause unpleasant side effects. If you decide to stop taking St. John's wort, reduce the dose slowly over time.

There are special precautions and warnings for:
- Pregnancy and breast-feeding
- Infertility
- ADHD
- Bipolar disorder
- Major depression
- Schizophrenia
- Anesthesia and surgery
- Alzheimer's disease

Thanks for the website!

Two Capsules Contain:
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) 250 mg
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate) 5 mg
Folate (as L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate from L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid, Glucosamine Salt) 400 mcg
Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) 550 mcg
Pantothenic Acid (as Pantethine)* 130 mg
Iodine (as Potassium Iodide) 68 mcg
L-Tyrosine 200 mg
5-Hydroxytryptophan 50 mg
Eleuthero extract (root) (Eleutherococcus senticosus) 50 mg
Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)** 50 mg
Rhodiola extract (root) (Rhodiola rosea) 50 mg

Other Ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Leucine, MagnesiumCitrateLaurate, Silicon Dioxide.

These are the ingredients in Deproloft but none of them are listed on the website. I am not on any prescription meds so I just took a chance. It's working out well for me.

If I had been on prescription meds, I would have talked to my pharmacist first, then my doctor - I worked for my pharmacist when I was teenager and he, as most pharmacists will, will advise me for free whereas the doctor would charge for a visit.
