Honey, it sounds like YOU need some antidepressants! You're not a psychiatrist or a medical doctor so therefore have no first hard experience with antidepressants! You're taking out of your ass!

I was addicted to crack cocaine for 30 years, it was living hell, I finally got antidepressants Lexapro, and Wellbutrin, ever since then, I have not had the urge to smoke crack at all. I am free of that addiction, do I have to take these pills for the rest of my life, when I quit taking the pills will I still have the urge to smoke crack?

Dude... this lady is a quack. Depression is a genetic trait that, at one point, was genetically advantageous, because a depressed person's body mimics the body of someone that is sick — fever, less likely to go outside, etc. which all mean a depressed person is less likely to contract a virus or bacteria. Just like sickle cell anemia, a depressed person was sick in their own right, but probably had a longer life span than the average person thousands of years ago. ^ That's at least one theory on why depression is so common, but it is agreed that genetics account for at least half, if not more, of someone's predisposition to depression. Just like we treat physical illnesses with medicine, we can treat mental illnesses with medicine. It's not dangerous or bad. It has its side effects, just like any other medication, but it more often than not improves someone's wellbeing tenfold. Before I took Wellbutrin, I was lethargic, withdrawn, sad, and just generally living life in a gray haze that I was unable to escape from now. Since I started Wellbutrin, I enjoy life again. I can laugh, love, cry, be passionate: all of the things a normal person can. My side effects? I couldn't sleep very well for the first week and I was constipated for about two weeks. Yeah, poison my ass. What's poison is this ridiculously moralistic and unscientific use of "nature" and "natural" as a talking point.

many causes of depression. Lack of serotonin is one possible cause. There are many natural and healthy ways to increase serotinin ,however,you may have to use many of these ways all at the same time,you may need to spend money on these natural ways and you may need high levels of motivation or will power to perform these way/ add up the cost of natural anti seppressants,to get high epa omega 3 oils can cost $150 per month.Regular excersise such as the gym or running,are you physically capable and if you are,are you motivated enough? every treatment can have problems.Taking a pill once a day is often the fastest,cheapest and easiest,most powerful method you can use.Everything has a place.

Sean h smooth transition 1.go as slow as you want. I initially halved the minimum dose prescribed. It was a great move. Going up or down each step is 20% of what my doctor prescribes. Takes a long time but is hugely smoother.Like riding a very slow motor car,any skids or bumps are going to hit you much easier. 2.perhaps have some effective tranquilizers on hand(e.g.diazepam)to take if you hit a rough patch.3. Have things to do to take your mind off any negative thoughts or experiences.(e.g.art,d.i.y.,computer games,gardening etc.etc.) 4. Set up some support,people you can text,message,email,phone or visit,places of security you can go to(gardens,parks,clubs,bars,massage,museums,church). And remember you are a brave yoganaught exploring the wonders of inner space.to locate the nasty bits of the jungle so you can keep away from and to locate the nice bits where you have fresh clean water,deliscious fruit hanging from the trees and friendly animals.The end goal is love,laughter,joy and meaning.and you are going for it.good luck.

+Klaus Sperger thanks for your reply .i hope you're ok now . The doctor told me to drop down to 15mg of mirtazapine for 2 weeks and then he wants me to switch to sertraline. from being on 30 mg mirtazapine for 6 months. I'd like to see how i do off them completely. Just wondering what to expect or any things i can do for a smooth transition
Klaus Sperger (15 дней назад)
+Sean h I came off them 10 mg. at a time. I was on 75mg. of zoloft(sertraline)and was hugely if not totally better.I stayed on for about another year,i seemed stable so i took 10mg. less.after a week or so i felt a down and felt slightly depressed again,nothing too bad though.i worked on myself with yoga,t.v.whatever and waited it out,after another week or so i started to feel a bit better and even out,so not too bad.I dropped 10 mg.per month and in 7 months i was on zero anti depressants. In my case i certainly felt better on the drugs than off but it was quite manageable if a bit unpleasant at times. I was doing o.k.but after 6 months off anti depressants it wasnt getting better but i was managing well. Then i had a heart attack scare,into hospital,thankfully i was physically fine however then i really crashed deep into depression,i took the pills again.I am now on 200 mg a day and have no intention of coming off. I am now in no doubt that my brain has a huge problem making serotonin and i cannot do without the drug. But i heard that others can come off and be free of depression.I do have a neurological brain condition which might be the problem. so come off little by little giving yourself time to adjust.
Sean h (15 дней назад)
Hi. What would you say is the best bet for coming off antidepressants?
Richard Williams (1 месяц назад)
Yes she’s right; take the amino acids which are the precursors for the neurotransmitters which are required to make the brain work optimally. I take a ‘stack’ of them, twice a day for one week every calendar month.
Richard Williams (1 месяц назад)
By the way, it’s a good idea to buy empty capsules to put the cut SSRI pills in, and do it weekly so you’re always prepared ahead of time. One other thing, have the SSRI’s affected your libido? They can wreck your testosterone levels. So there’s another one you could take for that, called DHEA. It’s a precursor to testosterone and it will help your body restore it as well. It’s also a great mood enhancer. But you should also take an eromatase inhibitor (estrogen blocker) as excess testosterone will be converted to estrogen and progesterone because the body seeks to balance its hormones out. I’ve tried DHEA and it did work really well, but I used it in conjunction with something called DIM which is an estrogen motaboliser, so it helps excess estrogen be broken down. I didn’t find that too good in the long run tho, so I’m gonna start experimenting with other aromatase inhibitors so that the DHEA works more effectively. But that’s all new to me myself. As for the amino acids I mentioned before, they’re the core of the stack you need to balance your neuro transmitters. Good luck with it
Richard Williams (1 месяц назад)
To wean off the SSRI, best do it slowly as possible. What I did was cut the pills in halves, and have half a day. then after a month, cut the pills in thirds, and have a third a day, then another month,cut them into quarters, then fifths, then sixths, then 7ths. By then you’ll be cutting one pill into 7 parts, so one days dose will last you a week! The month after that, the dose will be low enough for you to make the jump and just stop the SSRI altogether. Because by then you’ll have built up large reserves of amino acids to have plenty to go off so it should be easy to make the jump. If it’s still hard take a seventh every other day, but it really shouldn’t come to that.
Richard Williams (1 месяц назад)
As for dosage, what I’ve found out is different people say different amounts. A level tea spoon of each of these will be fine, twice a day. Blend into a smoothie i think. Cos some of them don’t mix well with water and others are better absorbed with fats, so if you make a fruit, spinach smoothie with melon or cucumber, and avacado for fats for absorption, it’s the best all round way to take it. Have a smoothie twice a day, once when you wake up for breakfast, and one early evening, after work perhaps.
Richard Williams (1 месяц назад)
greg adamo Ok, the amino acids I take are as follows: L-tryptophan, DL-phenylalanine, L-Tyrosine L-Arginine L-Glutamine D-Aspartic Acid. Along with these. Take Choline Bitartrate Vitamin B6 All these can be bought in powder form, really cheap. Look on eBay, they’re so cheap it’s stupid. Whilst you’re weaning off your SSRI, take these and it will definately level you out so your ok.

My Mother has been on Anti-depressants since she was in her 20s. Shes 65 yrs old now and her health is deteriorating. I can tell you from experience and growing up seeing her on so many different medications its caused some brain damage. I dont know what to do. She wont stop taking them. Her doctor who is now retired has prescribed my Mother Seroquel, Topiramate and Klonopin just to sleep at night. She also takes lexapro and few other pills in the morning. She is overmedicating and Im trying my best to help wean her off of most of these medications but I'm no doctor and I definitely don't trust her new doctor.

What do you mean it throws the body out of balance! Clinical anxiety and depression are chemical IMBALANCES they help put it back into balance. Look I love natural medicine and amino acids, but sometimes the pharmaceutical stuff is ok too. I take 750 milligrams of GABA three times a day as well as St. John’s wart with that. But I recently started taking 10 milligrams of citalopram once daily and so far I think it’s helping quite a lot.

They helped with my anxiety and depression for a while but gradually I learned through therapy other coping mechanisms. I'm off drugs for two and a half years now! Also exercise can do the same job without the side effects.
Juliana Ioannou (13 дней назад)
+greg adamo I went off them very slowly and gradually, your doctor should be able to help you with this. But at the same time, it will help you tremendously if you start exercising (If you don't do it already). This will keep your serotonin levels steady and help you through this transitional period. Also for me, psychotherapy has helped a great deal.

There is corruption everywhere. But millions of people have used SSRIs and had success. Modern medicine is the best we have.
JanCarol11 (9 месяцев назад)
Research that was performed by pharmaceutical companies for profit, that was corrupted. For example, they only need 2 positive studies, and if they have to perform 30 trials to get 2 positive ones, that's what they do. Then the 28 bad trials are swept under the carpet. There are other tricks of the trade as well. I recommend Peter Gotzsche's "Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime" if you want to learn all the tricks of research.

omg this lady is really really dumb. ok so ya ssri do lessen the re-uptake but thats because in the people taking it there bodys re-uptake to much the ssri puts them at a normal re-uptake level also its not like you have a lifetime limit of how much serotonin your body can make grrrr. depression is not all in peoples head there is actual medical stuff going on not just mental. this is lady has NO medical training and has no idea what she is talking about and has clearly never suffered from depression and does not understand it. if you are taking anti-depressants please dont stop they are not a cure for depression they are a helping hand to help re-balance the physical side so you can work on the mental side.

+userdetails1 well that's not exactly a good refutation of what I wrote. Every drug has side effects but the attempt to put antidepressants in the same category as opioids, crack cocaine, sleeping pills or heroin is pure folly. To wit, the medical community and law enforcement have been sounding the alarm for years of the dangers of these drugs. In fact all of these drugs are associated with street crime and gang violence. Have you ever heard of an antidepressant talk force? Of course not because the drugs aren't addictive and street dealers aren't interested in them----antidepressants cant get anybody high. You are free to believe what you want but I speak from experience.

+C C bullshit
C C (13 дней назад)
+userdetails1 the "withdrawl" from antidepressants are mild to non-existent. In fact the first sign of "withdrawl" will be the return of depressive symptoms which just means the medicine was doing the job it was intended for. In case you haven't noticed the whole medical community and law enforcement is fixated on opioid and other addictive drugs for a reason: the damage they do while taking them and the real withdrawal symptoms which can be serious. All drugs have side effects but like everything else each individual has to make that assessment for themselves. That said, antidepressants are much safer than most drugs prescribed or over the counter. More people abuse NyQuil and other cold medicines which can do far more harm.
userdetails1 (14 дней назад)
+C C they can have unpleasant withdrawal effects which make them difficult to stop. there are people who want to come off them but can't because they will have to go through withdrawal

+Donna Keeley Actually with some people these drugs can cause violence. My sister has been put on all kinds of psych meds. With every psych med she has been put on she becomes violent on. I was put on ADHD pills it almost cuased me to kill my own mother. Plus the withdrawel effects them self's can cause homicide and suicide. Taking them can as well. Plus the longer you are own them the longer the withdrawel effects can last. Withdrawing from psych meds you have been on most of your life can cause a chronic version of the same illness. Just saying the drug company is killing people and fucking people up with no accountability. Plus the drug company has been known to lie about the benefit and danger of the drugs. Just saying dude.

There are many, and a program can be tailored to your personal needs. The most important one, is learning to breathe and attending your breath. Anxious breaths are shallow and fast, and need to be slowed deepened, deep into the abdomen. I often breathe "into my toes" to turn on parasympathetic nervous system. This is the beginning of Mindfulness training, and essential piece. Other methods involve taking the energy of anxiety and turning it into excitement: http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2016/03/can-three-words-turn-anxiety-into-success/474909/ Other methods involve exposure therapy - and find that you live through the anxiety. Fear of the fear (secondary fear) is often the key component in panic attacks. If you can break the secondary fear, and realise that fear does not harm or kill you (your response to the fear is where the danger lies) then you know you will live through it. This method also involves separating your physical response (racing heart, sweaty palms, spikes in adrenaline, cold chills) from your actual feelings (it's only a physical response, I don't need to panic). That's a quick summary of treatments for anxiety. There is no herb or pill that will fix this, though fish oil and magnesium support your system so that you can begin to work through anxiety.

First of all, Ms. White is speaking in absolutes, that all antidepressants are bad and it's very rare to need medication. What specific antidepressants are you referring to? SSRIs, SNRIs, atypical antidepressants, mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, ECT, MAOIs? These are all different classes of medications/treatments that can be used for depression. It's like saying all heart disease medication is dangerous and ineffective, even though there are countless different types. Does she suggest no medication for people with bipolar, schizophrenia, or severe autism? Where do you draw the line between "yep, they're crazy put them in a hospital" and "major depressive disorder isn't a physical problem it doesn't need medication"? She's already stated that she isn't a medical doctor. Her "logic" and opinions have no weight in comparison to scientific consensus. Should everyone who claims to suffer from depression take medication? no, but just like people with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia who need treatment, there are people with clinical depression caused by their physiology, without any influence from their environment. to claim that every single one of the countless medications to treat depression is dangerous and ineffective is just silly. This is from someone who has tried everything to treat mental health from exercise, meditation, diet, supplements, environmental changes, etc., to various types of medication. I'm not biased at all (it's not fun to try different meds and experience side-effects) but medication can be much more effective than any one of the other treatments I've listed. I've experienced no significant danger with medication and thousands of others can say the same thing.
JanCarol11 (9 месяцев назад)
Yes, all of them. Go to www.survivingantidepressants.org and read the member threads to see how many people are suffering from all classes of these drugs. Many of these drugs are just tweaked versions of previous drugs to keep the patent $$$$$$$$$$$ like venlafaxine and desvenlafaxine, or citalopram and escitalopram. It's the time factor you are not considering. The longer you are on the drug, the more you will suffer from mysterious ailments that will not be connected to the drug. Restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, sexual dysfunction, the list is over 100 symptoms long, culminating in chronic fatigue, cardiac malfunction, and more. It doesn't matter which drug, really - there will be variances in which neurotransmitters are occupied, or how long the half life is, or strength, but ultimately, all the drugs - including "antipsychotics" and "mood stabilisers" too - mess up multiple systems in order to affect mood. Only you can change your own mood. Chemicals are, by the very nature of homeostasis, temporary.

It's my understanding the serotonin isn't depleted. It's absorption into the transmitter neuron is inhibited, but not in the receptor neurons. She's making it sound like it's just flushed out of the body or something and admits she's a layman (just as I am). If your life is on hold because you can't use a telephone or ask or answer simple questions or enjoy the company of others due to anxiety, you would be willing to risk these alleged dangers.
JanCarol11 (9 месяцев назад)
Then you take the pills and find out that you cannot get off of them. You find out that your body, over time, is being depleted of nutrients - you are robbing Peter to pay Paul, and your nervous, endocrine, digestive and sexual system are being damaged (40% of people lose sexual function, some of those damages are permanent. Is that worth being able to use the telephone?) It is better to look at why you can't answer the telephone or answer simple questions - what sort of life changes need to be made in order to function better. There are millions of traumas and stressors - everyone is individual - that can cause the conflict in your being that cause depression. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPx0nN6aQj0

IF you are withdrawing from a SSRI, there is a herb you can take called Kanna that will pretty much eliminate all withdrawal symptoms. Do not take Kanna with your medication but if you haven't taken it in a while and your are in withdrawals, all you need is a pinch of this herb and it will make you feel normal again. I tried this on my friend who was experiencing Zoloft withdrawals and it made him feel 100% back to normal. Kanna is a natural SSRI which is the reason it works so well.

Dr Nancy White has spoken the truth about antidepressants and has reflected the facts that other highly qualified doctors like the great Dr Peter Breggin has expressed. Dr Breggin is a Harvard trained psychiatrist who has been warning people of the dangers of "antidepressants" and other psychiatric drugs for years. And he is far from being alone in this. There is a plethora of information proving beyond all shadow of doubt that these drugs have harmed - and killed - enormous numbers of people. The drug companies are NOT health CARE companies - they are profiteers. They are guilty of far too many crimes against humanity - and these facts too are very easy to research.

Hagop D (1 месяц назад)
@Marc still I'd rather use weed in moderation than the man-made big pharma chemicals... When I feel I'm getting too depressed after using it for a while, I just stop or reduce the amount and it brings me right back to a normal/decent mood. Doing this would not be possible with prescription anti-depressants. Also smaller doses relieve anxiety in my case... overdoing it has the opposite effect so I always stay on the low side But this is just my case... I can't speak for everyone

Aaaaah the good old natural fallacy. To think that some cures are better then others because they don't involve man made chemicals is incorrect. Go check out how mental patients were treated in the past and you'll realise how incredibly ignorant it is to think like that. I'm not saying drugs are the only thing needed when facing depression or anxiety but they do help millions of people and are safe when used in a responsible manner. The problem in the US seems to be that people often are prescribed these drugs with little or no additional support or follow-up.

Pills are cheaper, too, than real care. Pills are easier for the family, too - just take your drugs and don't tell me about the bullies or how you want a fair go in life. The docs and pharma are not the only ones complicit in the prescription crisis.

Safe and responsible? At www.survivingantidepressants.org, I see hundreds of people who have been harmed by these "safe" and "responsible" uses of these drugs. The protocols are taught to the doctors by the pharmaceutical companies - what could possibly be wrong with this model?
ARTHUR D DUDA (1 год назад)
boijorzee they are also prescribed these drugs because of doctors who get BIG pay back from the pharmaceutical companies, pills instead of care, pills to combat all the unhealthy lifestyles and chemical poisons we ingest thru the contaminated foods we eat because the corrupt FDA allows corporations to add anything they want to The food for bigger profits, and Congress allows corporations to dump millions of tons of pollutants in to the air water and soil systems for bigger profits , all that stuff plus alcohol tobacco and drug use and a 24/7 fast paced environment lead to so many health problems, trying to solve it all with a pill that has it's own ill effects on your mind and body will never work, people need to change their lifestyles and Congress needs to make the changes to make people's lives better, so they can get off the 24/7 rat wheel of trying to keep up with the Jones's . make education system better, cut taxes, teach children not to become a cog In the consumer driven borrow to get what you want interest based financial system, so people can. slow down and be families again and cure our godless divorced alcoholic weed soaked tobacco addicted obese stressed out debt slave society.

I've seen both videos on the channel on how SSRIs are "dangerous," and I have to say I disagree with them because they run on the assumption that SSRIs are marketed as a cure for depression when I've never seen that interpretation of them in advertising. SSRIs are only supposed to stabilize the patient while they get help from therapy (and find the root causes of their depression), eating right, and actually getting off their butt and doing things. Eventually, when the time is right, the patient will no longer have to take the SSRIs because they'll be in a better mental state. (I should know, I was finally taken off Luvox last week because I've been feeling great about myself lately.) I completely agree that being off pills should always be the goal, but I don't see the problem in taking pills as the *first step* to recovery.

People that take antidepressant have a much higher rate of depression relapse & it's more severe... Just coming off them is difficult enough. It's a short term fix that has terrible long term consequences. To put it simply: The longer one uses antidepressants, the more dependent on it they become. Pharma companies love lifetime clients. I agree with JanCarol11 100%

Try this one: http://bigthink.com/devil-in-the-data/does-depression-go-away-on-its-own one of many. Most depressions clear up on their own. The more you drug a depression the more chronic and difficult it becomes. It is rare to find an undrugged depression these days, as the drugs are handed out freely for all kinds of human problems.

No most depression does NOT shift after 3 months
JanCarol11 (9 месяцев назад)
Except that they change your neurotransmitters and sensitivity. Use of the drugs increases the occurrence of long term chronic depression and treatment resistant depression. Additionally, they block feelings, so that the therapy is actually *less* effective when on the drugs. Instead of watching videos on YouTube, read Robert Whitaker's excellent "Anatomy of an Epidemic" to see how the drugs correlate - if not cause - long term problems. The longer you use them, the longer the problem. Additionally, withdrawal is huge - even if you only use the drugs for 3 months, they get their hooks in you (restructure your neurotransmitters) and then you can have trouble withdrawing from them. I've known people who have been screwed up after just one pill. The NNT (Number Needed to Treat) is 8 people for 1 person to get "good effect" from an antidepressant. That means 7/8 of people just suffer the side effects and withdrawal effects for no good reason. Additionally, most depressions shift and move after 3-6 months anyway. So why put damaging chemicals into your system? They are not like aspirin, they don't just go away when you stop taking them: they change things.

You don't have to be a doctor to understand the dangers of SSRI's. I'm an undergrad biochem student and what this lady is saying makes complete sense. She is talking about basic biology and homeostasis, not talking about how to perform brain surgery. No need to discredit her from talking about anything pertaining to medication and the human body when she clearly is making complete sense just because she does not hold an MD. Your comment is ridiculous!

Shine light michele  Unlike opioids antidepressants aren't addictive and they don't make you high. Each person needs to decide for themselves whether they help them or not. No one is forced to take a pill. Shall we stop all chemo and radiation because it ravages the body? Taking aspirin can cause internal bleeding. Over the counter cold medications can adversely effect the heart and liver. Alcohol destroys lives, families and marriages. Drunk driving takes innocent lives. Shall we stop selling alcohol, aspirin and NyQuil? If anything, the FDA is too cautious in testing out new drugs that could benefit those with the worst diseases.

1FuZzToNe1 a had some anxiety attacks a while back, i found that prayer, staying away from caffine getting more rest, cutting down on nicotine watching what I ate, and listening to certain songs could help me thru the day, the prayer helped the most but you can't always stop what your doing in most cases and just go pray, but you can listen to some music, or run the lyrics thru your mind even when listening is not an option, I had several songs for each time of day or task I was trying to accomplish, i.e.. getting motivated to get up and out of bed, to get my mind to concentrate on work, even to get to sleep, one of the ones that helped the most was Robert Plants version of Darkness Darkness,... give it a listen it really helped when I needed to sleep but my mind wouldn't shut down with all the worry.

All drugs are dangerous. Like anything else it's a trade off. Chemo and radiation can be worse than the actual cancer but without it many people would die. I'm glad you were able to get off of antidepressants but depression is a complex disease that varies in it's severity. For some people a combination of therapy and drugs is the best answer.

So now you take a drug to counteract the first drug you took. After 6 years, you are starting to damage your endocrine and digestive system. You have likely numbed your ability to feel emotion, and therefore empathy with others. It's only a matter of time before your lexapro (one of the strongest SSRI's out there) will backfire on you.

One of the key reasons so many react inappropriately to psych meds, including antidepressants, is the fact that so few appreciate exactly what goes on biomedically w the meds in the first place. Without serotonin available synaptically the meds have nothing to collect, and thus they cause side effects. So many w chronic psych issues do suffer w comorbid chronic metabolic problems that too often go completely unrecognized.

Antidepressants are TERRIBLY dangerous. My mama started on Wellbutrin in 1992. By the time I was in middleschool, they had her taking Wellbutrin and Paxil - one at night and one in the morning. She was getting dumber over the years and said it was because she was getting older (she wasn't yet 50!). She died in September 2012 and I miss the real mama I had when I was a little girl. She abused the drugs, too. However, the doctors wouldn't listen to my sister or me.

"cure" is not a very accurate word to use there. It's a temporary band-aid, but the gaping hole of suffering is not addressed by antidepressants.
