Hi

I am a double board certified clinical doctor and I will help you with this.

You need to see a doctor.

This can be a physical problem, such as hypothyroid.

You need to be tested.

If it is depression, cognitive behavioral therapy can help.

You need to also be checked for magnesium and vitamin D deficiencies

as well as B vitamins.

There are medications as well if necessary.

I was thinking to take zolfac
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 8 months ago.

Zoloft is an excellent drug, but must be prescribed by your doctor only.

I did not see a positive rating on my answer.

That means I was not paid by just answer.

Please do that now at the top of the page.

I will be glad to answer a follow up.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 7 months ago.

No.

I don't think vegetable seritonin at amazon is going to help.

There is no evidence it will do anything.
