When I wanted an increase in my B12 prescription, my doctor said I was someone who should be on Prozac for life.
I baulked at that.
But there was so much stress, and I was feeling so not good (I was living in hydrogen sulfide but didn't know it) that I finally succumbed when his Nurse Practioner said I should try Sarafem, that it would help me lose weight.
Sarafem is Prozac packaged to market to women for PMS.
Well, it was great. I was euphoric. The $67 a month seemed a drop in the bucket given the way it made me feel.
But then I got double incontinence. When I went back to the Nurse Practioner and showed her the insert that came with the Serafem I'd purchased to follow up on her free samples, she crushed it and threw it away, as if it really didn't matter.
What the insert said was that it was counterindicated (not good) for people with certain blood conditions, and that it in fact could cause double incontinence.
Let me tell you, double incontinence is not something that will reduce depression!
If you are having depression problems, the chances are high that you are LOW on vitamin B12. Methylcobalamin is the active form of B12. You should get it and try it for a two months before you medicate the symptoms, and possibly hurt your overall body....
That's how I feel from my experience.
