Question
hi jurriaan, for the past several months i've been feeling bored and depressed. i just can't seem to get motivated to do anything. i used to love looking at movies or going shopping but now it's been different. i do take lamictal but it only works to a point. is there anything i can take or do that would remedy this situation. i would appreciate any help you can give me.

Answer
HI Chris,

It is difficult to say in one short message what the problem may be. but I guess it is depression. If so I suggest you read: Depression is a Nutritional Disorder
