I'm on Lustral 50 and Lexotanil 1.5 for Depression from 12 Days, What food or herbs to boost mood to help me and that doesn't interact with Medicine?

I'm on Lustral 50 and Lexotanil 1.5 for Depression from 12 Days, What food or herbs to boost mood to help me and that doesn't interact with Medicine?

Food as medicine: Great question! Food IS medicine. I recommend eating a balanced diet that is rich in phytonutrients (green leafy vegetables and other brightly colored vegetables). Green tea in the morning will help provide a calm energy. Eating complex carbohydrates such as a sweet potato in the evening can help boost serotonin levels, which can potentially help one sleep better at night. ...Read more

If there is no worry, they'll tell you that too. They are responsible to you and can't do their job w/out info like this. Best! ...Read more

After 16 days on Lustral 50 for Anxiety & Depression Psycaterist raised from 1 to 1.5 Pill when I told him that depression is greater,Is this Correct?

Lustral/ sertraline: From the number of questions you have asked - it makes me wonder if you don't trust your psychiatrist. I don't see a problem with increasing sertraline from 50 to 75 mg per day. However, you have been second guessing each recommendation by your psychiatrist. Would discuss your concerns directly with your psychiatrist. ...Read more
