I have had MCS for 30 years. For the past 6 months I have suffered severe depression after the death of two family members. I have tried natural methods to treat depression, but they have not helped. My therapist feels that I need to go on an antidepressant temporarily. Because of my sensitivities I don’t know what would be the safest thing to try. Any suggestions?
Dr. Rea’s response:
If you choose to go on an antidepressant temporarily, I would suggest using it no more than one to two months. You could try Elavil—others with your condition have tolerated it well, but there is no guarantee you will.
