Hello, 

 

My doctor wants me to try a supplement called "Testforce2" which has chelated d-aspartate and sarcosine. 

 

This is the information I found on sarcosine:

It's supposed to help schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, OCD. My doctor wants me to try a very small amount of it for depression. 

 

I'm a bit worried about the effect on testosterone or other side effects. 

 

Has anyone tried this for withdrawal depression and or anxiety? 

-Effexor 150 mgs (2001-2009). Severe withdrawal symptoms during and after tapering for 6 months.  

-Pristiq 50 mg (2009-2012) Tapered over a year. Worst year of my life. 

-Prozac 20 mg (2012) Tapered over 6 moths to ease withdrawal. Still had severe WD symptoms. 

- (2012-2014) Doctor tried more than 20 medications for depression and WD, leaving me hypersensitive, and in protracted withdrawal. 

- Most debilitating symptoms during protracted withdrawal have been deep depression, anxiety, brain zaps, fatigue, akathisia, twitching, headaches and terrible PMS. 

-January 2015: Started Lamictal 12.5 mg, increased to 25 mg.- Bad reaction when updosed to 50 mg. Stopped. 

-February 2015: Doctor tried new antidepressant Brintellix - Horrible reaction. Discontinued completely. Severe AKATHISIA started.

-March 2015:  Started TMS therapy (Transcranial magnetic stimulation) for severe depression. Didn't work. 

-July 23-August 12: Had 10 ECT sessions which took away my protracted withdrawal symptoms including: akathisia, brain zaps, muscle twitches, fatigue and depression. Stopped medications. 

-September 2015: Experiencing bouts of depression again and muscle twitching. 

-March 2016: Started 20 mg Nortryptiline for depression. It helped. 

-August 2016: Slowly tapering Nortryptiline.

I just bought sacosine. SInce you're a woman, I don't think you should take DAA even though it can increase estrogen even higher than test.

 

I would just start out with buying sacosine from smartpowders. It cheap and supposed to be very effective. Good luck.

Hi ADnomore, 

 

I tried it for a couple of weeks for depression, it didn't help me. 

 

I hope it helps you.

Sorry to hear that. It helps a little, I take 1/2 a gram at night tops.

 

Have you tried vitamin C (asorbic acid) powder? It works wonders for lowering cortisol and adrenaline. Start off with 2-3 grams. Increase from 5-10 grams tops. Some side effects include GI distress but usually go away in 7-14 days.

Magnesium helps as well.

5-htp at night, only for a week or two when you are falling into depression.
