Re: prozac,xanax and St.John'Wort...back to ShyDi

So, you're on SJW, prozac, and xanax.

I'm sure there are lots of folks out there that get a lot out of xanax, but the other stories I've heard would make me shy away from it.

As you can see, we've quite the group of herbal experts in this crowd, so let me throw out a suggestion for them to comment upon, based upon an archived thread:

If its insomnia that is bothering ShyDi, how about sublingual melatonin for that? As an alternative, how about sublingual valerian? What, too, about her SJW and Prozac dosages? Could one be too high or otherwise out of whack?

ShyDi, a lot of us around here kind of automatically say "get thee to a pdoc" if its a gp doing the prescribing, simply because most gps don't have the training, no matter how well-meaning they are, to handle the subtleties of psychopharmacology. But if you really don't want to get too weighted down in meds and don't mind the herbs, then getting some advice from the expert practitioners here may be just fine. Also, if you can't afford the additinal expense and you're feeling stable enough, do what you gotta do.

But keep an eye on yourself, and don't be a stranger here. If you start to backslide, let us know and THEN we'll all *hound* you to get to a pdoc or ER or whatever seems to be called for! ;^)

be well
