I love this answer! I basically do the same. In addition, we will assess for nutrient and hormonal deficiencies, and replete the patient if we find them. It should be noted that, in a fair and balanced review of the medical literature, vitamins and nutrients don't "treat" depression: they merely help restore the body to an optimal level of functioning. Specific, abnormal values of specific vitamins - such as B12 - can cause depression. Repleting with this is not so much a "treatment" for depression as it is a restoring the body back to optimal balance and nutrient status.
