Considering the buzz surrounding the new herbal anti-depressant, it is likely that many people will choose to try and switch from the conventional anti-depressant they are already taking to the herbal remedy. Let me repeat a few suggested guidelines if you should choose to do so. I would recommend first that you involve your doctor in the process (someone must be prescribing the antidepressant, after all); second, that you switch gradually, overlapping the two medications in the transition phase; third, that you monitor your progress carefully to ensure that you do not suffer a relapse; and finally, that you be open-minded about returning to your previous treatment sooner rather than later if the exchange does not appear to be working out. The following story of one of my former patients illustrates a successful transition from a conventional to an herbal anti-depressant.
