There is ABSOLUTELY no other herbal product with any evidence of being of the least use in helping Drpression. Surely what you and your husband really deserve, would be for him to see a proper psychiatrist, for assessment ; and then the prescriptionn of an effective antidepressant, with, if possible the addition of CBT style counselling.
