Selegiline has dopamine agonist, anxiolytic and
antidepressant properties, and has been used to
treat ADD too.
PS, phosphatidylserine, may help with your brain damage
and reduce anxiety levels with your same time :
As Xanadu mentioned above, rhodiola might well help you.
This appears to be a good formula. Note that their St John's
Wort extract is standardized for hyperforin, not hypericin
like most other brands.
You could combine it with this, based on L-theanine, by
the same company :
Adapton, also recommened by LEF, may also help anxiety :
Another one is Seroctin :
But it may well be that you have high histamine levels too,
as Orthomolecular suggested, which would mean that you
are a histadelic, a term which most conventional doctors
would not even have heard of or understand.
Common traits of histadelics are slim, lanky fingers
(Abraham Lincoln was one), constant salivating at one corner
of the mouth (Marilyn Monroe), high sex drive with long
intense orgasms, allergies, chronic anxiety, depression,
obsessive-compulsive disorders and suicidal tendencies.
Marilyn Monroe apparently was never diagnosed as one
(not that the medical profession knew that such a thing as
histadelia existed, as mentioned above). Her doctor/psychiatrist
just kept dishing out tranquilizers to her, which never did
help. She was chronically highly strung, emotional and suicidal.
Supplements which help are methionine, SAMe, calcium,
manganese, magnesium, B6 and zinc. Histadelics are supposed
to avoid folic acid and B12. A higher carbohydrate, moderate
fat and lower protein diet is recommended for histadelics
by Patrick Holford.
A good book is his book, "Optimum Nutrition for the MInd".
The first time I heard of histadelia was when I read this book
in the local library recently.
But I think it might be better to find an orthomolecular or nutrition-based doctor to diagnose and treat you, rather than
trying different supplements and drugs at random.

The foremost authority and treatment center in the USA
for histadelia is Carl Pfeiffer's center, however.
Patrick Holford in the UK follows Pfeiffer's guidelines :
