I have been suffering from PPD since the birth of my second a month ago. I have a lot of anxiety, racing thoughts, panic attacks,etc., all of which have led to depression. I was reading an old thread on this forum about Inositol as being a possible alternative natural treatment to medication. I spoke with my doctor who gave me the green light and have been taking it for 5 days now. I was wondering if anyone is still taking it and if so I had a few questions. I had been feeling a lot better all week (no panic attacks and a happier outlook) - not perfect but a lot better than I have been feeling. I am taking 1/2 the recommended dosage which ends up being 6 g. (my doctor advised 12) and was going to see how that worked and then up it if necessary. Tonight, however I feel back down in the dumps and now I am wondering if my brighter spirits were just a fluke and maybe the Inositol ian't working or I'm not takig enough. For those of you taking it - how log did it take to work? Also, have you felt ups and downs while on it? TIA!
