If other depression drugs haven’t worked for you, try Emsam, a patch that has been touted as a great thing. Three different strengths are currently marketed and the first patch was approved in February by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The lowest dose can be used without restrictions required of MAOI class of depression drugs, according to the FDA website. Emsam provides a significant advance because at least in its lowest dose patients can use the drug without the usual dietary restrictions associated with these types of drugs known as MAO inhibitors, according to one doctor. Major depressive disorder is a common psychiatric condition in the U.S. population. MAO inhibitors usually require specific dietary restrictions because when combined with certain foods they can cause a sudden, large increase in blood pressure or “hypertensive crisis.”

Lavender is a pretty garden favorite with slim, sage green leaves and spiky purple flowers. You can whiff it for a more restful slumber. During the Middle Ages the herb was used as an aphrodisiac. Research shows that the scent of lavender eases anxiety and insomnia. Psychologist at Wesleyan University asked 31 men and women to sniff lavender essential oil one night for four two-minute periods just before bedtime. The researchers found that the lavender increased slow-wave sleep, the very deep slumber in which the heartbeat slows and muscles relax. Use pure lavender essential oil. Cost is $8 and up; diffusers are $15 and up.
Vitamin B-12 may improve memory problems in some people, according to a Mayo Clinic doctor. Its primary functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. When deficiency occurs it is more commonly linked to a failure to effectively absorb B12 from the intestine rather than a dietary deficiency. Vitamin B12 can be stored in small amounts by the body.
Capsaicin Cream is primarily used to relieve pain and itching. When applied to the skin it has been found to deplete Substance P which desensitizes a person to pain. The cream provides a temporary reduction to pain so it must be used regularly to provide long-term effects. Thirteen out of 16 randomized controlled trials involving a total of 1,535 people found the cream was more effective than placebo. A study by researchers with the Geisinger Clinical Oncology Program found that cancer patients with post-surgical nerve pain had substantially more pain relief using Capsaicin with an average pain reduction of 53 percent versus 17 percent for the placebo.
