A month ago, it seem to relapse, but is not serious. I have take Lumiday for two weeks, it is useful for me. Now I have a question.
Can I take Lu

Daily? No proof: Lumiday is a dietary supplement marketed in States for natural mood enhancement. However, unlike prescription & OTC medications, there is no requirement to prove safety & effectiveness prior to selling product. So your guess is as good as mine.

I have been on anti-depressions for years, celxa, Paxil (paroxetine) and prozac, i'm don't feel like it helps anymore..Can you become immune to it after so long!?

Not immune: Immunity doesn't happen, but sometimes people may not respond as well to a single medication over time, or life stresses may cause depression to overtake a medication. The best thing to do is to keep working with your psychiatrist as there are many combinations of medications. Also consider psychotherapy along with medication, as the two together can be more effective. Hope this answer helps. ...Read more
