Light Depression &  Fatigue

My husband (57) has lost both his parents over the last 3 months and is under tremensous pressure at work. I feel that he might be suffering from light depression as there was no time to moarn their death and everyday just brings new challenges at the moment. He cannot take time off from work as this will cause him to be even more behind when he gets back and add to the pressure. He is extremely tired, energyless and often sick with flu etc.
Is there an over the counter energy/immune booster and mild anti-depressant that you can recommend to help him through this difficult time. Other than that he is in good health and do not take any chronic mediaction. Appreciate your advice.

Hi Monkey

It may be worth his wile to ask his doctor to recommend a mild ant-depressant and perhaps also something for the anxiety.
There are over-the-counter products available which may also help to some extent. Look for something which contains "St Johns Wort" i.e. Solal's St Johns Wort Extract.

All the best!
