Just looking for feedback. I've been taking Zoloft for just over 2 years. I cut my dose in half a couple months ago and I'd like to cut in half again, I feel great right now. I'm hoping to wean off of it completely -- all under my doctor's guidance.

I was considering supplementing with SAMe, unless you all convince me otherwise. My husband says just to call the doctor and ask but I always feel stupid asking doctors about more natural treatments.

I'd try folate first - food form or 5-MTHF from Thorne Research (and B-12, methyl form, not cyan form) and a good B-Complex like Thorne's or Megafood's. And magnesium.

Inositol does well with depression (you can google for dosing information). It's a B vitamin.
