Several of my student patients have been using therapy lamps without recommendation from me, and they've have offered generally positive reviews. With the change to Standard time, I'm trying one myself, not for depression, but hoping that it might kickstart my day. I've never been a morning person, but I arise 4:45 to 5am. Coffee helps, but I'd like to see if some artificial sunlight helps further.
I'm not confident that it will make all that much of a difference, but I'll let you know what I think in a couple of weeks.
