I believe what's said here about depression and low levels of calcium and magnesium. I'll get mine in good supplements if I have to, but so help me, I will never try to eat broccoli again, even with cheese on it.

"Finally, according to Mental Health America, about 12 million women in the U.S. experience clinical depression each year. It's estimated that women are twice as likely as men to experience depression. Depression has been linked to low levels of calcium and magnesium, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that a study comparing the bone mass of depressed premenopausal women to their nondepressed peers found that the depressed women had reduced bone mass and the most thinning in their hip bones, putting them at higher risk of fractures.

Many leafy greens boast high levels of vitamin E, which helps stave off menopausal hot flashes. Excellent sources of vitamin E include mustard greens, turnip greens and Swiss chard; you can also find it in spinach, collard greens and kale. Like broccoli, leafy greens are natural diuretics and are great for combating bloat and water retention."

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.

Since: Feb 14
