My doctor suggested taking a supplement of Omega - 3, a complex supplement B50 , a vitamin D ( 1000IU ) and increased my daily exercise regimen . I suggest asking your doctor for a blood test to see if you are deficient in any of these areas . I found out after a blood test my vitamin D levels were half of what they should be and that this contributes to energy levels . Personally , I am on Cipralex because vitamins alone will not help me . I suggest asking your doctor for a different medication and explain your issues in great detail with the previous two . If you have an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain, all the vitamins and exercise in the world will probably not be able to compensate for this deficit . Good Luck!
