I have taken St. John's Wort and it helps a lot. It feels like it hits the right spot. Except it makes me feel like garbage in another way. Is there another medication or supplement that works under a similiar mechanism?

Yes I got desperately ill with Vit D deficiency so I take that (vitamin Depression they call it)

I read Omega 3 helps with mood swings so I started that too and my feet stopped hurting so - YAY

Ive just started magnesium for sleep and have not noticed any sort of an improvement although I did get through till 5 this morning which is a Huge Win for me.

So. Jury's out on the Magnesium still - but I will probably take Omega 3 and vitamin D forever.
