    Hi, yes inositol is safe to take with antidepressants according to medical research.

    Comparing the effectiveness of an SSRI to inositol is like comparing a boy racer's Vauxhall Corsa to a Honda NSX.

    Within 2 days of taking 4g of inositol, my depression, nervousness and anxiety start to disappear. In fact I think some of the negative feelings are actually being caused by the citalopram.

    I just realized that it is an ingredient in my B50 complex vitamin that I take.

    Re: Inositol ??

    Hi Physcopoet.
    I have been taking inositol and I do believe it is helping but I am still having a lot of anxiety. About 7 on a scale of one to 10. Before I started taking Inositol it was way off the scale and I was having quite horrendous panic attacks also.
    I am now taking 4gs 3 times a day. Do you think I am taking to much or do you think I need to give it a little longer at this dose for it to take effect?
    I would appreciate any advice.
    Thanks Erin

    Hi Sarah Jayne.
    I buy mine in powder form from Holland and Barrett.
    It is their own make.
    It is vitimin B8 so you may find it in vitimin B complexes but obvously it may not be in the correct dose you require.
    I should think most pharmacies should sell it.
    If you do try it please let us know how you get on.

    Re: Inositol ??

    Inositol on its own is not a cure. You must try other self-help therapies as well. Finding a medication or supplement that can eradicate depression and clinical anxiety is beyond our technology, for now.

    You can try increasing the dose but be careful not to make too big a jump as it can cause you to need the toilet.

    I'm going to write a full rundown on inositol tomorrow and ask one of the mods to sticky it. For the time being check my citalopram survival guide. There's a lot of information about inositol in there.
