Just wondering if anyone has used it for Anxiety and Depression and if you thought it helped or not. I was on Zoloft for 6 months and finally got off of it about 3 months ago. I thought I was doing really well but in the last month all my thoughts of death have come back! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I hate it so much!!! I just want to feel normal again. Its so goofed up all my life all I wanted was to be a mommy and a wife. I have my dream...but I cant be happy. Nothing makes me happy anymore!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I see my girls growing up so fast and every night when I put them to bed I think of how I wished I would have done something fun with them that day, instead of being depressed worrying about myself dying all day. If sam-e dosent work I am going back to zoloft I just cant handle it anymore!

I'm a big believer. I can't say it makes me 'happy' but it stops the bad thought cycles I was having. I just feel more calm but not zoned out or numb. <a href="http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-SAM-e-400-mg-30-Tablets" target="_blank">I buy it here</a> and just started the ez ship today.<br><br>
I started taking it for about a month and then I stopped for about a week. One of my friends actually noticed. I was freaking out about what I had going on and she interupted me and said, "you stopped taking the SAM-e didn't you?"<br><br>
I took that as a sign that I needed to go back on it. I take 2- 400mg tablets in the morning. Don't get me wrong, it's not a cure all. I still get angry and yell at my kids too much but it totally takes the edge off so I don't feel lost and hopeless.

I've used it for depression, and did find it helpful after being consistent taking it for awhile. But then I tried 5 HTP and it seemed to help alot faster....like from catatonic to functional in half and hour (but I did have to keep taking it). The book The Mood Cure by Julia Ross has alot of helpful suggestions....
