First off, I have read already that there is no protocol here for depression, so I understand that.  However,  I’m sure plenty of you here have words of wisdom and experience when it comes to this subject. 

A bit of history - not sure if this is important or not.  I am a 41 year old female.  I suffer from clinical depression.  I was officially diagnosed in 2012 or 2013 and put on Lexapro 10 mg x 1 per day. I have taken the Lexapro continuously up until about 2 months ago when I slowly weaned myself off of it.  There were times when I was instructed to up the dose to 20mg per day, which I did, and it seemed to help, but there would come a point where I found myself sleeping all the time and feeling like a zombie, so that’s when I decided to get myself off of it.  I have had periods throughout my life where I was depressed, but only one other time was I prescribed medication (Zoloft) and I didn’t take that for long because I felt like my mood was just ’flat’.  Depression runs deep on both sides of my family.  My father was bipolar.  My grandfather on my mom’s side, a half brother from my dad, and a cousin on my dad’s side all committed suicide.  My (full) brother takes Lexapro for depression as well. 

I am just not sure where to start at this point to fix the depression.  I’ve read recently here and elsewhere about thyroid, Vitamin D, and SAM-e. 

I had my Vitamin D tested mid January 2019: result = 18
I’ve been taking Vitamin D3 10,000 IU daily since getting my result, but I know it’s too soon to test level again right now. 

I had my thyroid tests done April 2015 but never followed up with that since right after that an unexpected divorce started.  Results:

I’m needing advice on where to start now.  Do I have thyroid panel checked again or just start taking SAM-e?
