I was just wondering i am considering taking Vitamin B Complex and pure EPA with my Cipralex is this ok to do?

I have heard that EPA is good for depression and also heard that Vitamin B Complex is good for fatigue and that under stress we need more vitamins is this true?

I would like to hear from people who have taken either Vitamin B Complex or EPA and hear their views.

Thank you.

You are totally right about the Vit B complex - ensure its got 50 mg of all of them and fine to take with SSRI.

You might want to consider swapping the EPA ( evening primrose?) for an Omega 3 or 6 . The research is showing these to be more effective for anxiety and depression .

I maintain myself on this . I took one day for about 6 months and now take 3 a week.

Vit B is the main vitamin vital for the nervous system and vit C for the antioxidant component is included.
