First, you cannot prescribe for yourself on this, you don't know
if you have the right remedy, you don't know if you have
the right potency, you don't know how often to take it or not
The remedy is not going to do anything to your medications,
there is no substance of actual material in the remedy, it is
a water molecule imprint and remedies have an action of
stimulating your life force to clear out imbalance- you cannot
think of it like western medicine. If anything, your other medicines
can affect how the remedy works.
Have you gone and bought the full spectrum lighting for your
house to combat SAD?
The best option is to see a real homeopath in your area who
has experience with Clinical depression and you can also do
this via skype if you cannot find anyone qualified near you.
Some homeopaths experienced with this give you the remedy
while you are on your other medications and as you feel better
you taper off them slowly. Other homeopaths may want you to
stop medications and then do the homeopathy, which really
is not a good option for you.
If you need help finding a homeopath, let me know your state/city-
If this is not possible you can put your case on here .
