Is there a non-medication that will make my Prozac (fluoxetine) stronger or make anxiety/depression lower?

Please don't mix: Natural meds/supplements w/prescription drugs. It changes the dose and makes it unclear as to what is working. Talk w/your doc. He/she may have some suggestions. Exercise and healthy diet is a better choice.
