List all the supplements you take and how often you take them.

I take one of each of these every morning:

Multivitamin
5htp (mood)
B12 (nervous system)
Milk Thistle (liver)

I have a ephedra/caffeine supplement coming in the mail but I won't take that more than a few times a week not daily. That's for aiding in weight loss. I also take protein shakes since I don't eat meat.

I have taken many, many supplements, and some are rotated depending on current needs, but the ones I'm taking at the moment are:

Every day:

Fish oil: I found it to be helpful for my mood, although I started taking it for other health benefits

Multi: I found that if I take it before I go to bed, I feel more awake in the mornings.

Milk Thistle: Just started taking this and I was amazed at how much energy it gave me! Obviously my liver needs a serious detox.

Off and on: Magnesium and potassium. If I don't get enough of these in my diet, I get bad leg cramps.

Opti-Men (vitamins and minerals) and that's about it, I like to spend money on something else than other supplements, like quality food.

I see most people spending hundreds of dollars on supplements and eating like crap, they still don't get it that nutrition is way more important than some pills, protein powder or stuff like that.

Multivitamin w/ iron
Adrenal gland supplement (a blend which includes schisandra fruit and ashwagandha)
GABA
Fish oil omega 3

I'm about to start taking n-acetyl cysteine again as well.

I think that's everything...

Very true. I believe in supplements and many of them have helped me, but nothing can be a miracle cure for not eating healthy. People often do the same with exercise -- they think if they work out 6x a week they can eat all the junk they want to. A holistic approach is much more successful.

I'll start with the anti-anxiety supplements... Ashwagandha root, 5htp, picamilon, B-complex stress tab w/vit C, suntheanine...

2000 mgs vit D in fish oil, milk thistle, burdock root, NAC, inositol/choline, TMG, alpha lipoic, biotin...

Cramp bark/fennel/ginger root when having my period. I also have ginger root/turmeric as both are good for inflammation...

Occasional phenibut, which makes me a little speedy, & talkative.

I get a ton of exercise, a lot of it at work... Have a berry/probiotic smoothie every workday...

I used to just take a multi-vitamin every day, but I now add 15 - 30mg of Zinc, 5'000 IU of vitamin D3. Also have some 100mg 5-HTP a few hours before bed.
I feel a bit better all in all.

Low on budget:
Out of magnesium and also out of some huge multivitamin from opti men.
suntheanine
true focus from now
vitamin c
melatonin
5 htp
passionflower
rhodiola rosea / ginkgo biloba
vinpocetine
oh yeah fish oil and creatine too

Sometimes I switch around. Wouldn't it be bad to take so many supplement for your kidneys/lvier/stomach what else.

Don't believe that much anymore in that. I stay using till I ran out. Just eat well.
