There are other anti-depressants you can try, such as St
. John's wort
, DLPA (though it, too, can be very stimulating as it affects norepinehrine), and SAMe, to name three. But the rhodiola can also cause palps, as it is also stimulating and can charge the adrenals. Which brings up the question -- are you dealing with pure depression here, or depression and anxiety? It makes a difference, especially regarding the rhodiola and how long it'll take to notice if the HTP works or not.
