Prescription Antidepressant Drugs Fail

February 26th, 2008 · No Comments

prescription drugsA recent study, published in the Public Library of Science (PLoS Medicine Journal), looked at Prozac (fluoxetine), Seroxat (paroxetine), Effexor (venlafaxine) and Serzone (nefazodone) and found "the antidepressants do not produce clinically significant improvements in depression in patients who initially have moderate or even very severe depression."

The researchers conclude that there is little reason to prescribe new-generation antidepressant medications to any but the most severely depressed patients unless alternative treatments have been ineffective.

This is another reason not to take any prescription drugs such as the SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors)  mentioned above unless absolutely necessary!

Everyone feels down or miserable occasionally. But for some people — those with depression — these sad feelings last for months or years and interfere with daily life. Depression is a serious medical illness caused by imbalances in the brain chemicals that regulate mood.

It affects one in six people at some time during their life, making them feel hopeless, worthless, unmotivated, even suicidal.
Mild depression is often treated with psychotherapy or talk therapy (for example, cognitive–behavioral therapy helps people to change negative ways of thinking and behaving).

For more severe depression, current treatment is usually a combination of psychotherapy and an antidepressant drug, which is supposed to normalize the brain chemicals that affect mood.
