Test to check vitamin and mineral deficiencies

Hi Friends,

Is there a test to check vitamin and mineral deficiencies?

How did you come to the conclusion,what supplements to take?
Zoloft 2011-april for severe anxiety
CT after 2 weeks
Made condition 100x worse with dp/dr and other somatic symptoms.
Lamictal May 2011- 4 weeks titrating from 25mg to 50 mg.-CT after sleeping for 17 hrs a day.
Pristiq-Since Aug 2011
works perfect-except vivid dreams and zero motivation.
want to be med free desperately.depression due to stupidity (cyberchondria) no issues in life.

Re: Test to check vitamin and mineral deficiencies

You can get a blood test done to test for deficiencies. I did that and found out I was vitamin D deficient, so I now take a vitamin D supplement.
Summer 1999 stress overload, declining health
December 1999 Doctor diagnoses depression & anxiety, 20mg paxil.
January 2000 to May 2009 Paxil dosage rises to 40mg. Numerous failed attempts to quit.
June to July 2009 too fast taper, wind up in ER. Read paxilprogress and decide to stabilize at 30mg.
Sept '09 through summer '11 slowly tapered to 9mg.
Aug '11 Updosed to 14mg
Continue taper at 5% each month
As of June 2012 10mg.
