Is Low dose Naltrexone avalaible in your country over the counter?
SSRI could cause EA ! It seems more safe to research/experiement with GABA, ginkgo biloba , 5HTP ... in order to alter the neurotransmitter balance in our brains.
He then said it's [Naltrexone's] probably not the best thing to try as a first option seeing it may have a somewhat opposite effect to what we're looking for....I'm still having more tests done but at this stage his thinking is that trying an SSRI is probably the first thing he thinks I should try. This is because I seem to have some general anhedonia like symptoms, and an SSRI will affect the neurotransmitter balance in my brain, hopefully for the better....I've had lots of blood tests done, everything is normal, so it's unlikely to be hormonal.
LH 4.0 U/L (2.0 - 10.0)Testosterone 13.9 nmol/L (9.5 - 28.0) 10.2 (2nd result)Prolactin 83 mIU/L (85 - 500) 90 (2nd result)My testosterone level is very low for my age and the prolactin levels are extremely low also.
@nofun, is it safe for lostmojo to use 5-HTP instead of SSRI for experiementing a boost up of serotonin level ?
DHEA and SAMe and other supposed "mood" enhancers I've definitely had recently and noticed no change. I've been taking 2 St Johns Wort a day for the last 4 weeks and I don't feel any different.One other little complication with Naltrexone is that it's not on the "subsidized" list in my country, therefore it's quite expensive to buy relative to other medications.Is 100mg of 5-HTP twice a day what you would suggest NoFun? I really appreciate your input gentlemen, I've been trying so many things over the last 10 years, I'm fresh out of ideas.
I have a unused referral for another blood test. This one asks for the following:DHEAS; FSH; LH; Oestradiol; Prolactin; SHBG; Testosterone.I think I'll go and have those tests, some of them haven't been tested before. Anything obvious missing there? I will also buy some testosterone cream and try that.What do you (NoFun) think of the ingredients in this product Now Foods TestoJack (I have never had Tongkat Ali before but I've had the rest): http://www.nowfoods.com/Products/078289.htm
