If you are having problems with an antidepressant, you are not
alone and you need real help. If your doctor doesn’t know how to help, find one
who can. Let family and close friends know about the dangers posed by these drugs.
You need the support of loved ones. You and your support group need to get educated
FAST. They need to know about the mania, the suicides, the rages, the psychosis
and the violence these drugs can cause. While these effects are rare, they are
all to real. With the SSNRIs these effects can happen with a single missed dose!
Many tragedies could have been averted if doctors and pharmaceutical companies
had only given sufficient warning. If you know of ANY Bipolar in your family take
extra care. Anyone experiencing any of the following should NOT be left alone
or with young children! Racing thoughts, hearing voices, hallucinations, Agitation,
impulsivity, aggression, confusion, thoughts of self harm or harm to others, or
any weird thinking, rage, intense mood swings, uncontrollable crying spells or
any signs of mania! Get immediate medical care. If you think God or the devil
is talking to you ITS THE DRUG!
We recommend "The
Antidepressant Solution" By Joseph Glenmullen M.D. This book has a withdrawal
method that works for most people. Take this book to your doctor.
Harvard psychiatrist Joseph Glenmullen's new book The Antidepressant Solution:
A Step-by-Step Guide to Safely Overcoming Antidepressant Withdrawal, Dependence,
and "Addiction," can now be ordered online. The Antidepressant Solution is a menu,
or cookbook-style program, for tapering safely and comfortably off antidepressants.
In a series of historic warnings in 2004, the FDA has asserted that "adult and
pediatric patients" on antidepressants can develop an array of side effects, including
"anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, impulsivity,
akathisia (severe restlessness), hypomania, and mania" that may make them suicidal
"when the dose either increases or decreases," that is whenever the dose changes.
The Antidepressant Solution includes a chapter on how changing the dose of antidepressants
up or down may make patients suicidal. The Antidepressant Solution provides the
information you and your doctor need to ensure your comfort and safety whenever
you start an antidepressant, change the dose, or go off the drug. A reassuring
book from one of the leading experts on antidepressant side effects, The Antidepressant
Solution is the antidote to the recent alarming news about these drugs.
