SAD and/or depression is a symptom of something that is wrong in our body. We need to find out what is wrong and treat that, rather than just treat the symptoms. I take D3, plus read an article that said turmeric gets better results for people with depression and has zero side effects. I take 800 mg turmeric a day. I do need a light box though, to deal with the SAD that pops up on cloudy days. My SAD is not as bad as it used to be and I have never taken a prescribed drug for it and never will. :)

no antidepressant is good for SAD

you need three things (ive had SAD all my life)

1. get outside
2. vitamin D supplements (get your levels checked folks, mine were lower than an ants belly :()
3. exercise

if you do the above religiously every day you wont get SAD.

Ive just had my first ever SAD free winter. :dance:

Yes, I left the most important part out.. get outside and get some fresh air and sun as much as you can! It also helps me when I get on the treadmill and get my blood moving!
