I took these. In fact, I took 3 different versions of them. I can only remember Zoloft and Paxil. The first prescription I took for depression is lost to my memory. I think it’s really important to understand the deadly truth behind antidepressants.
I’m linking here to a very informative article by Dr. Micozzi on anti-depressants. I want you to have the opportunity to read it for yourself.
What I can contribute to his post is my own personal experience.
I began taking some anti-depressant, the name of which I don’t remember…it didn’t work. Three weeks of hoping to feel better with no relief.
Next they put me on Zoloft, which worked for a while, but then my father died, and “I crashed on Zoloft” according to my doctor. Depressed again, even though I was taking an anti-depressant.
Next, they put me on Paxil which became my go-to anti-depressant more times than I care to recall.
I kept trying to be ok without them, and kept going off them. It’s not easy getting off them either. You feel dizzy, and it can be really dangerous if you go off them too quickly. Even with my doctor’s recommendation, I didn’t feel well. The next time or two I went off them, I did it in my own time, and I got off them more slowly than my doctor had prescribed. I reduced the dose more gradually in an effort not to feel so dizzy, disoriented and odd.
Dr. Micozzi says, ” For example, in one study, FDA data showed there were only five suicides in 52,960 antidepressant users. However, the FDA only counted suicides that occurred within 24 hours after a person stopped taking an antidepressant.
But every medical professional knows it can take weeks for the toxic effects of antidepressants to leave people’s systems after they stop taking the drugs. And, of course, many suicides happen when people are still taking antidepressants—which really defeats the whole purpose of taking them in the first place.
So when you broaden the scope of the FDA investigation to account for these facts, the real number of antidepressant-related suicides is 15 times higher than what the FDA reports.”
The deadly truth behind antidepressants is a good read and is well worth your time. I encourage you to come back and visit here often; please take advantage of the free reports I offer on the right hand side of my website. I cured my own depression by changing how I eat, and my mission is to share my success and how I did it with others. Maybe my journey will help you, too.
