Light therapy

I have done a bit of research on light therapy for seasonal affective disorder, but would like to hear some personal experiences. Has anyone here used a light box or dawn simulator (or both)? Were they successful?

Thanks in advance for any advice or thoughts on it.

I grew up in Buffalo where the winters are extremely long, cold and gray--very little sunshine (if any) for months and months. I used a light box while in high school, and I found it to be very effective at the time for helping with SAD. I also recommend some form of vigorous exercise, vitamin D supplementation (and/or have your doc test your vitamin D levels) and try to get outside for a bit in the morning hours (even if it's cold) for fresh air and natural light.

Hope you feel better!
