Question
QUESTION: hi. can i take inositol 12 grams and zoloft 25 mg? ive done my research but i dont have a clear answer. can you please tell me? thanks.

ANSWER: Hi sara,

As for medications and its interactions you should see your doctor. Because we normally ingest inositol in our diet, I cannot see any harm in your combination. But confirm with your doctor.  HOWEVER drug therapy is only a palliative and does nothing to cure the underlying biochemical abnormality that is responsible for your mood disorder. If you suffer from depression I suggest you read the following article:

Depression is a Nutritional Disorder

Answer
If you have problem withdrawing from sugars, please use GLYCERINE obtainable from most health food stores. See:
