Supplements for depression

Patient : I was diagnosed with depression when i was 16 and was put on a 30mg prescription of Prozac, shortly after being put on the medication i stopped taking it because i felt like a complete zombie when i was on it. since then i have some what "overcome" my depression, im 18 now and im a freshman in college living by myself in a new city. as you might have guessed this is not the most optimistic environment for one to be in, so my question is: what are the strongest natural supplements to combat the symptoms of depression? GABA? st. johns wart? and what doses should i take? thanks a bunch, noah. -18 years old, 170 lb male, good health, no food allergies
