I don't think antidepressants help the situation. In fact, I think they can even exacerbate the problem. About six years ago I took them for six months, and I haven't felt "normal" ever since. I've made an appointment with an endocrinologist, even though my regular doctor doesn't think I need one. My regular doctor has put me on progesterone cream, which helps me sleep during the period of the month during which I take it, but I can only take it during the second half of my menstrual cycle because I'm trying to get pregnant. I've decided to write down everything that makes my heart race, so I can present this information to the endocrinologist when I see him next month. Not sure if you've read Dr. Wilson's book, "Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome," but the some of the things he suggests doing to help have made me feel worse. He suggests making efforts toward relaxation and activities that you enjoy (no problem there), but he suggests taking tons of supplements, and when I do, my heart races and I feel horrible, so I stopped taking them. I can't take Licorice Root, which everybody says helps your adrenals, because it makes me speedy. I can't even drink peppermint tea. I seem to be able to handle vitamin C, and I take magnesium before bed, which is fine, but B vitamins make me feel like I'm going to have a heart attack, as does supplementing with adrenal cortex, which Dr. Wilson suggests. Sorry for the long reply, but I just want you to know you're not alone with these symptoms. Have you seen an endocrinologist? If so, what was the result? I know a lot of them aren't on the bandwagon yet, but I've read posts from people who suggest going to several different endocrinologists until you find one that believes you and is willing to help.
