I've been dealing with depression for years and have always needed to get on anti-depressant medication (specifically prozac- generic doesn't work for me) when I hit bottom in order to begin feeling like myself again. Recently, i've been spiraling downward again, and this time i'm really scared because I have no health insurance and a very limited amount of money. Aside from prozac, i've taken a combination of b complex vitamins, sam-es, and 5-htp pills which worked really well for me also. However, this was extremely expensive.

I need to ask if anyone can recommend some other form(s) of non-expensive, over-the-counter treatments that may work for me. Please help. I really need to get on something soon. Thanks.
