Absolutely. The thing is that I took it for withdrawal but I found out that it helped me with depression as well.
Well the Chinese say that when you stop taking opiates your body lacks heat and Chinese-formula recreates that heat until your body adjusts back.
But since I dont really believe in Chinese Medicine, they way I thought about it was that whatever it was doing in the western sort of thinking it must be getting my body to create endorphins and endorphins relieve depression and I think my hypothesis is correct. Because after I passed the stage where I was not suffering any withdrawals I was still feeling a lot less depressed.
So I kept taking it and I found out that it was lifting me out of depression. Then I thought maybe I was getting hooked on it. So when I ran out I didnt re-order. I didnt have any withdrawal symptoms like constipation, diarrhea, and pain, lack of sleep or sweating.
The only thing was that the depression came back. So I started taking it again and I was lifted out of depression again. I am not saying that I am cured but it gave me a lot more get-up and go and lessened the feelings of lethargy and anhedonia.
It is the difference of being functional and not functional. I take ten a day but my depression is particularly bad but my friend to whom I introduced it takes two a day and he feels fine.
It is a different effect to that of SSRI or other anti-depressants and the only side effect I have felt is dry mouth but that is because I take ten a day but my friends doesnt even have that.
Try it and let me know.
