You betcha! I'm JEG325 and I've been researching, studying and takiing supplements for 22 years! I have taken a lot of supplements nearly from the beginning. I don't believe in drugs and I refuse to use them at all, even aspirin! But today, let's talk about a few drugs that many of you, several of my best friend included, are taking......(I only had room for 3)....One of the most popular drugs for anxiety and depression (yes, I looked it up and it is prescribed for anxiety on occassion too), is Zoloft. This drug works by enhancing the seratonin in your brain. In other words it helps to keep your seratonin level up by preventing it from being used up as fast. Sounds simple. Right? Alarmingly, anxiety is an all too common side effect of this popular drug. There are many others too, dry mouth, constipation, diarrhea, insomnia & more. The list of all the side effects would take half a page! What to do then, if you want an alternative? Take the #1 seratonin supplement out there! L-Tryptophan works by by actually increasing the amount of seratonin your body makes! It has virtually no side affects. This amino acid will increase your mood, allow you to sleep better & return your appetite to something approaching normal. I have taken it when i had the money and can testify to its effectiveness in my life.....There other things too but, I don't have the room to go into them all. You can always pm me for more info......I'd like a brief word about Xanax too. Xanax is known for its calming effect and is sometimes used for a sleep aid. As usual, its list of side effects is alarming. So, how do we get around this problem? It's quite simple, since Xanax enhances GABA in the brain and uses this mechanism to calm you, we go straight to the horses mouth! Taking supplemental GABA works better than Xanax and has virtually no side affects. You can take it 3 times per day, especially at bedtime to help you relax and sleep.....Talking about sleep: Before you ever consider Ambien or some other over the counter or prescription aid, try using the supplement that works directly with your body to help you sleep! Melatonin is a hormone that your body produces at night to help you sleep. I have used it off and on for years. It is extremely affective. However continuous use is not recommended. I use 3mgs an hour before bed. And here's a tip. If you use L-tryptophan & GABA, you may never need melatonin!! Now, I can provide alternatives to many other drugs too but, I ran out of room. Pm me for any info you need about drug alternatives. Information provided by the website ADHD Boss & I HealthTube.Com + 22 years of experience! And finally, my disclaimer: I am not trying to diagnose, treat or prevent anything. Use caution and common sense before stopping or starting any new treatment regimine. You should always seek professional help in making such decisions. I recommend a progressive doctor. They use medicine and supplements to treat illnesses (they also use diet and spiritual treatments too). As usual I wish the best physical & mental health possible to our ADAA members!!
