Stressed, Dpresssed & Tired
Could you please recommend a good tonic? I'm very stressed, depressed and mentally tired after my parents'car accident 4 months ago. I wanted to get Aler tonic as I know it worked for me before but was told it has been discontinued. I can not afford to take of time from work right now but it feels as if everything is too much for me right now. I'm taking Nuzak 40mg daily but I stay tired.

Dear Tired
Try taking a good multivitamin like Pharmaton and some extra Magnesium ( Magnesit/Slow Mag) . Try and get some exercise - it helps to reduce stress, and see that you sleep enough hours per night. Be kind to yourself, these things are like emotional marathons! It may also help to get some stress de-briefing by a supportive psycologist. Been there, done that - but it does get better after a while...although at this point one feels that you won't make it!
