When you have depression, you may have specific nutritional imbalances that cause your body to need more active folate. As a result, you may not see the benefits you need from your antidepressant therapy. Not having enough folate may also put you at greater risk for your depression to come back, even after it has gone away.
Non-prescription folic acid is not the same as the active folate found in DEPLIN®. Unlike DEPLIN®, non-prescription folic acid needs to be broken down (or activated) by the body before it can be used. Unfortunately, up to 70% of depressed patients have a compromised ability to complete this activation.
DEPLIN® capsules can provide you with already-activated folate, so that your body does not have to go through all the steps needed to benefit from it. This ensures that you get the most out of your folate, without the worry that your body may not be able to activate it.
The active folate in DEPLIN® capsules helps boost the body’s ability to produce neurotransmitters, which are the natural chemicals in the brain. DEPLIN® addresses nutritional imbalances to naturally improve mood so you can get the most out of your antidepressant therapy.
Remember that depression can require long-term care. Your doctor will track your progress with you to determine the right length of therapy.
DEPLIN® also starts working fast—and it keeps working for the long term. If you are already on an antidepressant, it may take 1-2 weeks for DEPLIN® to start working.
For best results, be sure to take DEPLIN® capsules exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not stop taking DEPLIN® without first talking to your doctor.
In clinical trials, the side effects of DEPLIN® are about the same as those of a placebo (a pill or liquid with no active medicine, such as a sugar pill). DEPLIN® is not associated with weight gain, insomnia, or sexual dysfunction.
DEPLIN® is covered by many commercial insurance plans.
