Eft for Coca Cola Addiction
Posted by Sandy (In the sticks, Nevada) on 11/24/2007

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) freed me from an addiction to Coca Cola. EFT is a simple technique that can help with pain, addictions, fears, grief, and many other problems. If you google "Gary Craig" and "EFT" you will be able to learn more about it. Gary has the information you need to learn EFT for free on his site.

Rebalancing After Addiction
Posted by Troy (California, Usa) on 01/03/2011

Hi, I desperately need help... I have been a chronic marijuana smoker for over 6 years (all day long smoker), and also abused alcohol (daily 6-pack drinker at night time) and 10 days ago I was finally able to quit. This has been the longest I have been ever since without using either. The first 3 days was the worst: my mood swings were unreal, I was crying one minute and laughing out-loud the next. Insomnia was also bad but all that is gone now and I'm finally starting to feel better, but little by little.

However, I simply cannot eat. I'm not only not hungry, but I'm also nauseous and can't keep food down. Even fruit/vegetable juices and soup will make my stomach turn... Please help... I feel very weak, have lost a ton of weight. I tried going to a big food court to see if something would interest me, but the smell of food makes me sick. I'm a vegetarian but would be willing to eat meat if that's what took it, but so far the only thing I want to do is lay down all day and rest. I'm going insane! I feel like my brain is screaming trying to figure out how to restore its natural balance. Miraculously I do not have the desire or urge to drink or smoke (THANK GOD), but I wonder how much longer I will have to put up with this. It's affecting work and I can't get anything done. Please help and please pray for me, this is though. I need something else other than patience.

I quit smoking after 20 years and have been smoke free EASILY with NO CRAVING for 3 months. I sometimes smoked a pack a day, but often 1. 5 packs a day, and on weekends, often two packs a day (since I wasn't at work I could chainsmoke uninterrupted! I quit by visiting a wonderful hypnotherapist who was recommended by my doctor's office. I got a discount of $50 so it only cost me $145. For the two-hour session, but she usually charges $195. Still, it only took one two-hour session, wherein she makes you a personalized CD for your specific issues, and you must listen to it once daily for 10 days. I have saved a lot of money. Because it's unethical to sell any specific product or service on this site, (you can't trust any post that is trying to make a buck off your distress and rightly so, I wouldn't trust it either! ) I will not name my hypnotherapist, but it's OK because any good reputable hypnotherapist should be able to help you. You do not crave, you do not miss it. You do not have withdrawal. You are not - I repeat NOT - cranky. All my friends and loved ones agreed I was not moody, nor irritable, nor did I eat a lot or gain weight because my hypnotherapist cleverly included in my personalized hypnosis script and on my CD, that I would feel thankful to be a non-smoker, and full of life, that I would eat plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, and that I would walk, hike, and do all the healthy activities and excersizes that I told her I wanted to start getting back into doing. If anyone has any questions about the process or what it felt like I will gladly reply, however I won't name any specific therapist. Please google hypnotherapy for quitting smoking.
The stats are:
Cold turkey alone: 5% success. Patches or gums: 25% success. Pills: 25%

Hypnosis: 65% success rate. Why? Because the subconcious mind controls much of what we do! It worked SO well for me, I went back to quit drinking alcohol two weeks after and haven't wanted a drink since. And I was pretty hard core! I also addressed my intimacy issues and shortly after, entered into a loving relationship with the most wonderful man I've ever dated who wants to marry me and have the family I always dreamed of. I always dreamed of being cherished this way. But due to my mental blocks of not deserving love, I kept kissing toads. Over and over for 10 years. To find my prince I had to remove my mental blocks. And that worked so well, that I asked her to help me get back to my creative passions, which I'd let slip by the roadside 15 years ago. I shortly after took up sculpting again. She was able to address two issues at once, so all these changes took only three separate sessions. One for smoking. One for relationship and quitting drinking. Then I went back for creative inspiration. Good luck. ES

PS I am not into new-age groups or fads in general, nor have I ever before spent money on any consultation. But I knew I needed help to quit smoking and patches didn't work for me. So that's why I finally decided to try hypnosis, since a few people I know used it and quit permanently and truly easily. I was not disappointed, my whole life is so much better now. I feel free. Finally. ES

Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Anonymous (USA) on 09/25/2007

Just wanted to let you know that I started the H202, treatments tonight. I have been told that I have COPD. I have so many medicines around the house it is depressing. But this is about my ears. Since March I have been dealing with a hyper sensitivity to sound, smells etc. This manifested itself in the form of my entire body vibrating in response to noise. After days of the vibrating for 24 hrs a day for 6 days I was on the edge of sanity. I thought I was reacting to an external source, like a generator or something like that. I met with some friends and I was telling them about what was happening. One of them asked if I might have an inner ear infection. WOW, I never would have guess that. As it turns out, I do have an infection in the left ear canal. I was trying to find something on vibrating when I saw something on HP. I went to your site and read most of the responses. I was in such bad shape and I couldn't get in to see the doctor and no money for an emergency room visit, so, I decided to "go for it".

First I created a bowl of water, mixed 3%, over the counter peroxide in, then I used the cap to pour it up my nose. It burned since I didn't have distilled water at that time. Using the distilled water won't sting. Within 5 mins. the vibrations had stopped. I was able to breathe through my left nostril for the first time in months. Then I pored some in my left ear. I experienced vertigo, never had that before. But, it did tell me I was dealing with an ear infection. The vibrations stopped. It has been 24 hrs since I started the treatments. When the vibrating starts, I know it's time for another dose.

I also created the spray for my throat and added some to my water. It is amazing how much clearer my airways are. I can also see a very small improvement in my vision. I've been told that I need cataract surgery. Hopefully all of this will help that clear up some too. And! I have had a hugh reduction in my desire for a cigarette. I've smoked 15 cigs. today, whereas I normally smoke 2 packs. I just haven't wanted one. Amazing. I believe the infection is coming from a tooth, so I've also started rising my mouth with HP. At least it is giving me some relief until I can get to the doctor. I will continue use and I will keep you posted. I'm also passing your web address to family and friends. Hopefully they will check you out. Thank you so much for your site and I am so grateful for all the people who have taken the time to share the experiences.

L-Glutamine for Alcohol Addiction
Posted by Stephanie (Chicago, IL) on 09/18/2007

Most "alcoholics" don't realize their addiction is chemical and a direct result of being "hypoglycemic". The addiction to the alcohol is so strong because their blood-sugar level drops so severely and gets replenished so quickly with alcohol--because of the high sugar content. In other words, it's not your fault! This is the answer, if you are trying to cut back on your alcohol intake or go "cold turkey", just buy a bottle of "L- Glutamine" and take one every time you have a craving for alcohol. "Glutamine is an amino acid that your brain can use as an emergency substitute fuel when you haven't eaten recently or have been eating too many carbs and your blood sugar level is too low. This is a glucose stand-in that stops the impulse to run to the candy machine when it's low blood sugar time. L-Glutamine can stop your cravings and get you feeling steady and even within ten minutes." Julia Ross, from The Mood Cure-awesome book. I'm telling you, it works, now go help yourself!

Sun Gazing
Posted by Rinn P. (Usa) on 06/26/2018

Not entirely true. Yes that may be true if you were to sun gaze without proper teachings of how it is done. Sun gazing can actually reverse vision problems if done correctly.

Sun Gazing
Posted by Rinn P. (Usa) on 06/26/2018

Yes, it has amazing benefit with only proper practice, please learn proper teaching before attempting. Do not stare directly at the sun.

My loose understanding is a sun gaze consists of mere seconds of turning the head back and forth while facing toward the just now rising or setting sun (when sunlight is at its most indirect), eyes only passing over, never looking looking directly at it, and for no more than 5-10 seconds at a time, closing the eyes to rest between gazings, gazing 2-3 times the first day. Working up 1 more second of total sun gazing every day until a threshold is reached. This threshold should be taught to you by a sun gazer. I do not know it.

Valerian Root, Skullcap Tincture
Posted by James (Mindlands ) on 03/03/2017

I'd go with the valerian root and Skullcap just like my previous comment. But as your friends wants those out of his system I'd add St. John's wart tincture as well. It does very similar things but why I would add this is because a contra indication with St. John's wart is that it gets other drugs out of your system quicker. In this instance we would want that with your friend to clear it out quicker. If they are on other medication that is not wanted out the system then leave the St. John's wart out and stick with the first two.

Also at the end of the day the symptoms are like the flu, so I would add some of the usual pain killers for that as well to help with those symptoms at the same time as using the tinctures.

Good luck

Valerian Root, Skullcap Tincture
Posted by Amy (Utah) on 02/23/2018

I kicked suboxone and at other times just about every opiate there is. Sub is long acting and the longest withdrawals I've experienced. Two things are the best,

kratom (powdered leaf, NOT tincture)

sodium ascorbate (a type of vitamin C) powder form

Both will bind to opiate receptors and stop not only withdrawals, but cravings. If you use the sodium ascorbate make sure you don't use any other form of vitamin C instead. It's the sodium molecule that binds to the receptor.

DLPA is an amino that helps your body make its own endorphins (natural opiates) as well as a tyrosine, methionine and glutamine regimen. Reply to me for more info, I'm typing on a touch screen, so takes forever. I'm a week away from stopping heroin and I am not feeling bad.

I'm sorry for what you're going through, subs are the devil in disguise for me.

I would get some electrolyte drinks. Even Pedialyte.

Bone broth for nutrition.

Magnesium calm will help the system.

Theanine, HTP are good for calming as well.

I am not an expert, but the above can be good for bodies under this kind of duress. Nutrition can work wonders.

Soundscapes on YouTube. There are amazing ones that can calm people down and take their mind off of anything.

Tense then relax exercises works with people to manage pain.


Imagine your friend giving birth, have them do these exercises.

Again you have to want the change to succeed.

Nicotine is the opposite molecule of niacin (nicotinic acid).... You will battle to relax without your addictive fix... Get yourself some niacin... Get the no-flush... Niacin or niacinamide now needs to replace the nicotine. Also try an epsom salt bath before you retire at night. BEST WISHES and well done for quitting smoking!

General Feedback
Posted by Paula (Eureka Springs, Ar) on 11/30/2011

I have quit smoking 3 times in my life. The first 2 times were horrible experiences. Thought I would never smoke again until my husband was in a terrible accident. After 5 years, I decided it was time to try again. I dreaded it. The 2nd time I quit, I gained 70 pounds, used patches, was depressed, miserable, horrible, horrible, horrible. I so dreaded trying again. But then I quit and it was so easy that I was absolutely astonished. Don't know if this will help anyone else, but here it is.

For one thing, when I went back to smoking, I smoked natural tobacco only---none of the 2000 extra chemicals they add to make it more addictive. And then on the day I quit, I also quit coffee, caffeinated tea and all carbonated drinks. (I never drank many carbonated drinks anyway, but added it to my list). I put on patches. I know it sounds radical, but I was amazed. No real cravings. No caffeine headache. No sleep disorder. No mood swings. No 3 days of hell. Chewed a couple of pieces of nicotine gum in the first couple of days, but after 6 days I realized I had forgotten to put on the patch and never used another one. Don't know if any of this has any cause and effect to it. All I know is that it has been 2 months. I haven't gained a pound, am not smoking, or using caffeine and feel better than I have felt for a very long time. Once in awhile, when I am in a very stressful place, I will chew a piece of gum 20 times and spit it out. But those times have only occurred maybe 10 times in 2 months. Hope it helps someone out there.

Hey Troy, I was in a similar position about 2-3 yrs ago. I had smoked weed every day for approx 5 and half yrs, and I mean a lot, as weed in Adelaide is cheap, like at least half of what youd pay in any other state of Aus and the laws here are crazily slack. I also drank plenty too. I quit cold turkey in early 2008, I dont remember having appetite loss to the point of what you have but I had plenty of other weird side effects including being sent to the hospital for a suspected heart attack, at age 22, which scared the shit out of me. It turned out that it was just my heart spasming because it was missing the thc so much, thats what the docs said anyway. I did have some loss of appetite but nothing like what you describe but I guess everyones different.

All I really wanted to say was, Stick with it coz I swear to god getting off weed and drink was the best thing I ever did, probably the hardest too, but the most rewarding. It takes a long time before you really feel changes (maybe a year or more) but after being off for 3 years, I have gone from being very depressed, reclusive, anxious, angry, irratic, lazy, demotivated, suffering bad memory loss and recall. I am now feeling better than ever, im more outgoing, rarely anxious or nervous, so much more happy, motivated, and just loving life so much. Mentally, I feel like a kid again, something I never thought I would get back. Drugs are shit and they stop real happiness, getting off them was the best thing ive ever done and I wish I could grab every kid that is like I was, shake the shit out of him and tell him to put down the bong and the booze. I had a bit of councelling too which I think helped so you might benefit from that, usually there would be free drug councilling but I dont know about where your from. Anyway, good luck dude, I really hope you stick with it coz it's so so worth the crap your going through. Good luck, Brendan

Quit drinking with hypnosis

Hi, I want to share what worked for me. Please also see my post for quitting smoking cigarettes since I cannot post the whole story all over again, but in it I share the entire experience. Suffice to say I drank a lot. I am a petite lady and drank as much as a magnum bottle of wine all by myself in a day, and drank very heavily several days a week. It was a pretty bad thing. I quit smoking with hypnosis and then realized I'd better quit the booze too. I'm 36 years old by the way, and began drinking at age 15. Anyway, after one session with a hypnotherapist, I haven't had a drink since. It's been about 3 months and I have no desire to drink. I don't want it. And good thing I quit cause I met the man of my dreams shortly after and I know darn well it would never have worked out if I hadn't quit drinking prior to meeting him. Because A) I would have sabotaged it in a drunken stupor and B) His dad was a nasty drunk so he can't stand dating alcoholics. His ex used to flip out in nasty drunken dramatics and he couldn't stomach it. Anyway, if you are having trouble stopping drinking, you may wish to try a reputable hypnotherapist. I no longer drink nor smoke, nor do I want to. I enjoy my life free and happy. No longer chained to addictive habits that are self-abusive. Good luck

Hello to all. I have been asked by a friend if there are any natural remedies for co-dependancy. It seems as though a family member of hers, has a un-healthy realationship with a sibling. No matter what this child does and no matter how much trouble he may get into, she always bails him out.

I guess this is a form of addiction and I did check out the addiction page, but was wondering if EC would start a new page for CO-DEPENDANCY to draw attention to the subject.There is not much info when you google it as far as herbs, vitamins or minerials as treatments.

So if anyone has any suggestion, Ted or Joyce it will be greatly appreciated!

Thank You

EC: Hi Phil, for now we're going to keep this one on the addiction page!

Posted by Sharik (Arcata, California) on 10/23/2009

To Phil from Dearing, GA:

Homeopathic medicine (a specific discipline) deals with psychological problems as well as physical. It's not an easy learn, and usually takes a person trained in the discipline to diagnose and treat specifics. If you have a health food store or herb shop in town, they may be able to point you in the right direction. If not, back to the computer....

Peace, Sharik

Posted by Eve K (Houston, Tx) on 10/23/2009

I would look into Bach's flower remedies.... There are books available to help you narrow down your remedies, as well as info on the web. The descriptions can be vague but you will probably find one or two that seem to hit home....they are usually available at health food stores. The biggest "health food" store chain also has a coupon going for $3 off (last time I checked--the website for this coupon is mambo sprouts)...

I have personally had alot of success with Bach's flower remedies for emotional/psychological issues so I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Hello, Some time ago I read here, at Earth Clinic about a book on how to move on from an addicted relationship.

Sexual Addiction
Posted by Kayla (Ma, Usa) on 06/25/2010

I have done research and found that with sex addictions, the sex addicts have low levels of seratonin. That's why a side effect of SSRIs is low libido as those raise seratonin levels. There are a lot of dangerous side effects with those though. 5-HTP also raises seratonin levels and lowers libido naturally. I know a couple of people this has worked well on. It doesn't completely take away their sex drive but it does lessen it considerably so that it's no longer an obsession/compulsion. Just thought I'd share what I've discovered. I hope it helps with others as well. The people I know took 200 mg before bed, it helps you sleep better too, puts you in a good mood and even helps some lose weight. You can get it at any health food store or online.

Licorice Root
Posted by Danielle (Florida, U.S.A.) on 03/27/2008

I used licorice to aid in replacing the habit of smoking. Not only did this give my hands and mouth something to do. It relieved stress. Anytime I felt the urge to smoke, I chewed on a piece of licorice. The closer to the real thing the better, steer clear of the sugar laden sort, so check the labels!!

Supplements for Junk Food Addiction
Posted by Joyce (Joelton, TN) on 11/11/2007 495 posts

... On those supplements info - I always recommended that my junkfood addicts take 4-10 grams of vitamin C, l-4 400IU softgels of vitamin E, and at least 2 (50mg) zinc tabs spaced out over the waking hours to hasten healing. More than l0 grams of C causes some GI irritation. The E prevents scarring as well as hastens healing.

Oil Pulling
Posted by Lavaluv (Pittsgrove, Nj ) on 12/16/2016

I just started oil pulling literally yesterday. I only could do it for 8 minutes. I chose sunflower oil because that was one of the oils recommended to me as well as all the benefits I read about it. I immmediately noticed a constant need to spit over and over for the first 20 minutes I finished op. Even after I brushed my teeth. I have a temporary crown cap that I've maxed out way to long and it developed a white head on my gum (forget what it's medical term is) and I noticed that particular area was very shriveled looking but still there. I also felt a little shaky all day, not quite myself. Then last night I got this brutal headache in my right sinus and right side of my head. I came home took some pain relief and a sinus pill and went to bed. I slept terrible and had night sweats all night which I never had before. Again today as soon as I got up I op again this time 15 minutes and noticed the initial repetitive spitting was not there. However, I feel very odd..like something's going on with my body. I even experienced what felt like menstrual cramps last night which it is not time for that right now. I'm assuming this is the detoxifying process I'm going through. My question is...is this normal to feel kinda bad with headaches and night sweats? I don't want to stop because I've been abusing my body with a certain illegal substance for over a year now that is extremely harmful. I just didn't expect to feel so bad. I'm worried that it's because I am so unhealthy. I'm 5"9 150 pounds and lost 20 pounds rapidly in like a few months due to my drug abuse. I'm hoping op is going to heal me...but damn day 2 is rough.

A friend who is addicted to Prescription Drugs:

Hello..My name is Gina and I have a question that I hope you may answer for me. I have a dear friend that I have known for over 30 years. She is taking these prescription meds that do not seem to help her in the least. One is Carbidopa Levodopa. She is told that she has a form of Parkinson's but I think it all reality it is all in her head. These doctors keep prescribing different drugs for her but to me it is all about the money and not about the human being. She is on 2 other medications that do not seem to work either. I keep telling her to find a natural cure. Something that is not filled with harmful chemicals. These drugs are messing up her mind and body. Please can you help me? I want her to get better so much and I worry that these drugs will kill her eventually. Thank you very much.

Rhodiola Rosea
Posted by Calgary_rip_off (Calgary, Ab) on 10/01/2012

Last saturday I took a break from the one capsule of Rhodiola that I normally take in the morning from(unnamed British Columbia supplement maker), because I found the 250 mg tablet was making me too relaxed. I decided to take a break, given that I had taken Rhodiola daily for the last year. I noticed distinctly when not having it in my system that it had healed something from damage I had created.

In March-September of 1993 I got addicted to pseudoephedrine and caffeine pills. I was in my early 20's, naive, and depressed University of Washington Seattle student. 600 mg of caffeine pills(3 vivarins) and 90 mg sudafed(3 pseudoephedrine pills), per day spaced throughout the day and probably 10 cups instant coffee on top of that. With this amount of stimulants in my system, I ran literally each day for 4 hours. I believe that I did some serious damage from these amounts of stimulants. When I stopped the pseudoephedrine and continued drinking coffee(but no caffeine pills) that september I felt severely depressed. The depths of depression and felt very off.

Apparently, with the Rhodiola this has more or less been healed. I highly recommend Rhodiola to ex addicts as it is very very healing.

I am not sure about the dosage recommendations, that is individual. As my neurotransmitter system probably is altered, I notice that with the (unnamed B. C. Supplement maker) Rhodiola, low doses(250 mg with 1% active components) I get more tired than stimulated. So I decided to triple the dosage about 3 hours ago before the weight workout and I notice a dose related effect: A heavier dose and more of it leads to more stimulation, not less, apparently the opposite as noted on some threads.

I am happy there is a feedback page such as this one, and hopefully someone can benefit. This post is designed for those searching for something to help their synaptic systems if they have been damaged.

If you live in a cold climate you can grow your own too, without naming sources and introducing bias to this post, there are resources for Rhodiola growers here in Alberta, Canada you just have look online for them. I did and am growing Rhodiola in my backyard. Now I just have to wait until 2017 before I harvest the roots and make a Vodka tincture.

Rhodiola Rosea
Posted by Taoseeker (Sw Missouri, Usa) on 11/08/2014

Spaced dosages of 100mg (size 4 capsule) up to three times daily is recommended, keeping caffeine usage down as it can cause anxiety. Rhodiola is commonly sold in 250mg capsules and that is far too much for me in one dose nor can I take more than one at that dosage daily.

Like most medications, using a lot more than the recommended amount often produces the opposite effect intended. (E.g., overdosing an amphetamine causes sleepiness.)

Sleeping Pills
Posted by Francisca (Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France) on 07/12/2011

Ti, I can't give you much advice because this is not something I have ever dealt with. I occasionally take a sleeping pill if I really can't sleep but would never take them on a regular basis. I have seen what they do to people.... But I would say that you can try to lower the dose slowly in a way that you are not stressed about it and your body doesn't react too badly. Then you also have to try to understand that a lot of people have times when they sleep better, times they sleep less well.... That is normal, I feel! I have that myself. After having been a person who could sleep all day and all night in my youth I now, at almost 54, don't sleep go well anymore. Sometimes I don't even know why there are periods when I do sleep well and others when I don't.

Some things help me, reading a book before going to sleep or in the middle of the night if I wake up, watching a of TV if I can't sleep (the computer makes it worse for me), drinking a camomile tea before going to bed. Milk seems to help as well but I don't drink milk. Warm milk with honey. If I wake up in the middle of the night going to the bathroom also helps me, no idea why because often I don't even need to go, maybe a habit? Right temperature in bed, not too cold and not too hot. When I was younger turning on my stomach helped me fall asleep really fast but I can't do that anymore because of my back. Just try what works for you! There are many suggestions on this site.... And.... Sleep tight! By the way, there are also yoga exercises and if nothing else works.... Count sheep!

ibo is a great alternative! Takes a fat wallet, though. Also probably have to go to Mexico for treatment. But if you got the guts and the paper, GO FOR IT

I think the best way to avoid a potential health problem as a result of trying to get rid of your addictions is to drink fruits and vegetable juices until your body begins to accept solid food. The worst thing you can do to your health is not consume anything at all!!! Otherwise the fact that your are not taking in any nourishment for your body would only worsen your condition.

I have used a device called the Radiac for over 15 years and have found that it helps with everything that you have been going through. I have never got the Wet Cell, but I had a client of mine get it and she reported amazing results. Here is a link on a number of people that manufacture these devices that rebuild the body through electricity. Research the devices and choose the one that you feel would benefit you best, also I get the solutions that go with it.

Here is a great link for the device that I told you about. It really helps with a lot of different ailments. Do your research though on where to buy it. Some people say that the extra charcoal one is the best. I do not have that one - if the internet was around when I bought mine, then I would have gotten that.

Hello - re: the Radiac. How does this compare with Don Croft's Zapper? (Some EC entries have discussed the Zapper, possibly search "Zapper" and one can find these. )

Online info for the Radiac isn't terribly reader friendly, can someone give me a straight forward opinion re: Radiac vs the Zapper? It seems both use a low dose of electricity to assist the body's immune system. One can buy a Zapper (no wire hookups, just place it against your skin) for about $130 and the Radiac (with hookups and different solutions -- this is where things get complicating and confusing) runs $250 /-.

The Zapper seems to kill parasites which balances the body in many ways. The Radiac is associated with Edgar Cayce and is marketed to have similar health benefits as well as the ability to enhance one's psychic and spiritual levels.

Dunno! Any thoughts would be appreciated. :)!!

I would go with a zapper as they seem to have more of a proven track record in eliminating parasites, bacteria, infections etc. I recommened the zapper z4ex about $60 on ebay, it's reliable and has several frequencies for healing.

The reinforcement with positive suggestions on the CD is what makes hypnosis successful. All hypnosis is self hypnosis. If you make a list of positive affirmations, record them and listen to them everyday... You can change a negative behavior to a positive behavior.

I'm going through a pain killer addiction and not taking them for 2 weeks can be somewhat ok (of course the nausea), but the weeks after I go through a very emotional time and end up relapsing. I have also been diagnosed Bipolar and their medication doesn't seem to help, BUT when I take Ultrams, my depression completely goes away, but now I'm more angrier now and don't have insurance or money to get help. Are there any suggestions for me???
