As many others have reported I am very sensitive to most medications and a lot of supplements . A friend of mine who suffers from depression and anxiety brought a machine around which he has used with great results. It is a cranial electro-stimulating device. You attach clips to your earlobes and it sends electric currents into your brain . I was a bit sceptical but after 20 minutes a day for a week my anxiety levels were right down and my sleep has improved by leaps and bounds. I have now purchased one of my own. I bought the Alpha Stim but there are others on the market too. The downside is that they are really pricey but if they work for you are well worth the money. This is a drug free way of managing anxiety and depression .
