Light therapy lamps

Has anyone ever used one of those lamps that's supposed to help with seasonal depression/winter blues? If so, did it work/help? Any recommendations for lamps or how to use it? Am I asking too many questions?

I do have one. It helped me significantly as does sublingual vitamin D. I have the desktop Verilux. Start slow a few minutes in the morning. If you use it too long it will make you jittery.

Let me know if you need to know more

I've tried it. My struggle was finding time to sit by it. You're supposed to sit by it for at least 30 minutes, preferably in the morning. I needed to get out the door! I didn't want to use it when I got home from school because I have enough sleep issues and it can interfere with that if you use it too late in the day. It may have worked better if I used it more!

Do you have one that is a table model or a floor lamp? I briefly looked at them on Amazon.

I'm interested, too.
