AntiDepressants and Multivitamins - December 30th 2011, 04:51 PM


I am a 17 year old girl and I have been on 20mg prozac for about 3 months now. I noticed about a month and a half ago that it wasn't feeling as great as it was making me feel. My mom bought me these B100 vitamins from Costco because my equaline ones didn't have as much dosage as the B100. Since then I have noticed that I have been acting like my old depressed self and my boyfriend has noticed too. I have stopped taking the vitamins and I have noticed that i am back to my calm reasonalble self. Could Multivitamins worsen my depression even when on antidepressants? And also, why is that?

B vitamins can definitely counteract your antidepressants as B vitamins work to stimulate your central nervous system and your antidepressant works to sedate it.

It's well known that vitamin B can cause contradictions with prozac, as said before. Keep away from it where possible x
