Re: The herbs seem so much better than Wellbutrin! Jirel

Jirel,

Congrats! It's always great to find something that helps. Can you tell us the exact name of the pill and where you got it (supermarket, drug store, health food store)? Sounds like a vitamin supplement.

Peace,
Greg

> I can't quite decide if this is really the herbs or something else. I've taken Wellbutrin for 8 years (100 mg tablets four times a day). In April my mother died (she had been senile) and I decided to quit consulting and get a 'normal' job. I was having problems both with the doctor who proscribed the Wellbutrin and my insurance company so I VERY slowly came off the Welbutrin. About 3 weeks ago I began to take a pill with 300 mg St John's Wort, 50 mg 5-HTP, and a blend of Passion flower, Gotu Kola and Kava Kava. Its not that there's a sudden rush of good feeling nor have all my depressed feelings quit (but then I'm only taking 1/2 the recommended dosage) it just - things 'feel' better. I feel a little more aware of things (that has a down side, I feel my joint pain a little more acutely now). I worked in the garden all day, dug 5 18X18 inch holes and planted 5 rose bushes in those holes, did not accomplish the unrealistic expectations I had for myself of planting 10 roses (hard to do with a bad back) but I don't feel down about it! On the negative my bad temper is rearing its head again and I'm having to work against it more than I did when I took the Wellbutrin - but it only made me functional, it never really cured my depression. I'm kind of afraid to get my hopes up - but really, things feel better!
