Vitamins That Can Relieve Psychiatric Symptoms

January 27, 2016 Becky Oberg

Did you that vitamins can relieve some psychiatric symptoms? Recently my psychiatrist ordered some lab work because I was complaining of exhaustion, sleeping too much, and not feeling rested when I woke up. The labs revealed my iron was about half of what it should be, explaining the symptoms. When you are on your medications and in counseling and still feel symptomatic, there are vitamins that can relieve psychiatric symptoms.

Vitamins and Psychiatric Symptoms

Some vitamins can relieve psychiatric symptoms to varying degrees. Talk to your doctor about vitamins and your psychiatric symptoms, but read this first.

An example of a vitamin that can affect psychiatric symptoms is iron. An iron deficiency can cause fatigue, irritability, mood swings, depression, excessive sleeping, and failure to feel rested after an adequate amount of sleep. While diet is the best way to absorb nutrients like iron, there are some excellent supplements on the market.

Do your homework and work with your doctor if you feel like a vitamin deficiency may be causing your symptoms.
