Re: Prescription-free Medication for Depression/Anxiety/ADHD

A couple of comments from my personal experience:
Coffee (caffeine) works as well (for me) as ritalin for ADHD
Psychotherapy (of whatever sort suits you best including therapist, CBT, mindfullness, yoga, cycling, gardening...) in combination with an anti-depressant is a very powerful help.
AFAIK the consensus amongst clinical psychologists is that antidepressants need to be tailored to the individual (type and dose) but are less likely to help if used on their own without any back-up. This is then a problem in that this kind of regime does not fit easily into a clinical trial. Advocates and opponents of medication can easily find a meta-analysis to support their views.

I read this article https://www.theactivetimes.com/fitne...ss-and-anxiety and it made me laugh - when I was in Fiji, kava root was mashed into water, creating a muddy looking substance, and within minutes of drinking it we were high as kites!
