Anti depressants + Supplements?

Anti depressants + Supplements?

Do you know what supplement I am able (by experience) to
combine with a SSRI medication? I have a lot of Ginko Biloba
at my house from a grand parent that has died. Is this okay
to use?

I have tried it for 1 week but want to ask if you have tried it?
Did it improve circulation anything, sex drive etc?

What other supplements am I able to take on the SSRI?
I have asked my doctor but she probably don’t know as she
avoids answering this question. (Probably not believing much
in alternative medication as it is not “scientific”)…

No one?

Well, it depends which type of SSRI.

Ginkgo may have some undesirable effects, especially for individuals with blood circulation disorders and those taking anti-coagulants such as aspirin and warfarin, although recent studies have found that ginkgo has little or no effect on the anticoagulant properties or pharmacodynamics of warfarin[7][8]. Ginkgo should also not be used by people who are taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI) or by pregnant women without first consulting a doctor.

Ginkgo side effects and cautions include: possible increased risk of bleeding, gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, and restlessness.

If any side effects are experienced consumption should be halted immediately. Ginkgo supplements are usually taken in the range of 40–200 mg per day. If the side effects continue usage should be stopped completely.
All that from here:

List of SSRIs

Many drugs in this class are familiar in the USA through advertising, including the following:
(Trade names in parentheses)

* citalopram (Celexa, Cipramil, Emocal, Sepram, Seropram)
* escitalopram oxalate (Lexapro, Cipralex, Esertia)
* fluoxetine (Prozac, Fontex, Seromex, Seronil, Sarafem, Fluctin (EUR))
* fluvoxamine maleate (Luvox, Faverin)
* paroxetine (Paxil, Seroxat, Aropax, Deroxat, Paroxat)
* sertraline (Zoloft, Lustral, Serlain)
* dapoxetine (no known trade name)

Escitalopram is simply the left-handed s-enantiomer of the racemic citalopram. It had been introduced to the market just before the patent protection for citalopram had expired.

It is commonly thought that that the primary action of St. John’s wort is as an SSRI.

Note that trazodone is not a typical member of the SSRIs - while it is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, it is believed that its anti-depressant properties may be due to some of its other pharmacokinetic properties rather than its effect on serotonin reuptake inhibition. That said, it does still share many properties of the typical SSRIs, especially the possibility of the so-called ‘discontinuation syndrome’ (see the section on this below).
All that from here:

So go to the SSRI main page and look up the variuos names for whatever you want to take and see what it says PLEASE.

You might be safe just on St John’s and your Ginko too.

If you are looking for personal experiences with these compounds, I suggest lurking on one of many Smart-drug (nootropic) forums for people who claim to know way more than I do about all of this.

Thanks a lot twatteaser!

Long and informative post there.

I will check it and collect the

information in this thread.

Restarting everything.

A lot of information is to be found at

I consider this to be the best source of info rather than posting it


Restarting everything.

When I was on SSRIs, I took gingko biloba to alleviate the sexual side effects, and it works very well.

Jafar_t, really?
What were your side effect?
Loss of erection, delayed orgasm or loss of sexual interest?
If you’ve used it without dying or something I might try it for
a shorter period of time as well and see if I respong positively…

By the way did you ever try other herbs during your SSRI period, jafar_t?

Restarting everything.

Delay of ejaculation and loss of sensations.

The only thing that works for me is gingko biloba.

Great! Lets say did you go from 40 minutes marathon races to normal?

How big was the difference in time?

Restarting everything.

About 20 minutes.

In medical school, they teach doctors that St John’s Wort seems to REACT with almost anything.
