In this video, you'll learn about the best nootropics for controlling or eliminating social anxiety. If you've had little or no success with conventional Cognitive Behavior Therapy or prescription anti-anxiety or antidepressant drugs, this video may change your life. 02:32 What Causes Social Anxiety 03:09 Anxiety is a Neurotransmitter Problem Social anxiety is not caused by a deficiency in one neurotransmitter or another. The networks governed by these neurotransmitters are interrelated, have multiple feedback loops, and sport complex receptor structures. This is why you may have not had any success using prescription SSRI's or MAOI's. And why nootropics – especially adaptogens – could be your answer. 12:20 Recommended Nootropics for Social Anxiety 13:58 Natural Alternatives to Beta Blockers 15:22 Alternatives to SSRI’s, MAOI’s and other anti-anxiety drugs In this section I cover Aniracetam, Ashwagandha, Bacopa Monnieri, Folate, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, Gotu Kola, Kava, Lemon Balm, Lion’s Mane Mushroom, L-Theanine, Phenibut, Phenylalanine, Picamilon, Rhodiola Rosea, St. John’s wort, Tryptophan, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12. 22:36 Social Anxiety Eliminated Natural nootropic supplements are a strong alternative to many anti-anxiety medications currently prescribed by doctors. And promoted by the Big Pharmaceutical companies. You can eliminate social anxiety once-and-for-all with nootropics. If you do your research. And are willing to experiment until you find the one or two that is right for you.

Hello Friends! Do you have following questions or queries in your mind: What are antidepressants or anti depression pills? How to treat depression? What are SSRIs, TCAs or newer antidepressants? How do they work? What are the side effects of antidepressants? Can antidepressants cause weight gain or sexual problem? Are antidepressant medications addictive? are you planning to take antidepressants? How long does one need to take antidepressants? What are natural or herbal antidepressants? What is St. Johns Wort or Hypericum perforatum? Then this is the right place for you to gather the right information from the right person! Antidepressants are pharmaceutical drugs which are used to treat depression (Major Depressive Disorder), anxiety disorders ( Panic disorder, Generalised anxiety disorder, Social anxiety disorder GAD & SAD), and some personality disorders (EUPD). They act on Serotonin (5-HT), a neurotransmitter in our brain and increase its availability. They can also act on Norepinephrine or occasionally Dopamine but mainly its Serotonin. The older generation antidepressants were called Tricyclic antidepressants or TCAs. Some common examples are Amitriptyline (Elavil, Endep), Clomipramine (Anafranil) or Dosulepin (Prothiaden). However, they had multiple side effects and frequently affected the heart. They were cardiotoxic especially in overdose hence not used frequently nowadays. The newer generation antidepressants are called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor or SSRIs. Some common examples are Fluoxetine (Prozac), Citalopram (Celexa, Cipramil), Paroxetine (Paxil, Seroxat), Fluvoxamine (Luvox, Faverin) and Sertraline (Zoloft, Lustral). They are well tolerated and are not lethal in overdose. Therefore, they are the first line of drug treatment of depression. SSRIs are the first choice of antidepressant drugs for teenagers or adolescents, especially fluoxetine. Lately, there has been some recent addition which includes Venlafaxine (Effexor), Agomelatine (Valdoxan), Duloxetine (Cymbalta), Bupropion (Wellbutrin) and Mirtazapine (Remeron). As they act on receptors in our brain, the onset of action may take a minimum of two weeks or sometimes, four weeks in older people. Their side effects are mild and usually transient. rarely, they can have some serious outcome mainly due to drug interaction. Common side effects of antidepressants include tummy upset like nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, feeling of sickness or loose stools. They can initially worsen sleep or anxiety. Some can lead to nightmares or increased sweating due to increased noradrenaline. They can also have sexual side effects for instance decrease libido or delay ejaculation, usually at higher doses. Occasionally, they can increase suicidal ideation but its mainly seen in adolescents. They are overall protective in suicide in young, adults and older people. When taken for a long time, antidepressants can affect metabolism leading to weight gain or weight loss depending on the particular drug. How to wean off antidepressant drugs? Once taken for a long time, your body may develop some dependence and people can experience some withdrawal symptoms while stopping antidepressants. However, they are not addictive and should be stopped gradually. The recommended duration of treatment is a minimum of six months after symptoms have been adequately treated for depression and one year in case of anxiety disorders. If there have been two or more episodes of depression, treatment should continue for two years. There are alternatives which include psychotherapy and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). For mild to moderate depression, talking therapy or Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is the first choice. ECT is used in treatment-resistant depression or suicidal patients. recently, St. John's wart has become popular as a herbal treatment of depression and is widely available. However, it contains a lot of active ingredients with unknown function and can lead to interaction with other drugs. Therefore, it's wise to consult your doctor. Take care and Get well soon! Help is available, just look for it! Regards - Dr Subodh MD MRCPsych

Looking for a Brintellix Medication Alternative? https://ktcpartnership.com/ TRINTELLIX (formerly called BRINTELLIX) is a prescription medicine used to treat major depressive disorder in adults. The therapeutic effect of TRINTELLIX was generally seen starting at week 2, with full effect generally not seen until week 4, or later. In the last decade, KETAMINE has been used to treat patients with major depression, bipolar depression, and postpartum depression with a greater than 70% success rate within hours to days (not weeks to months like most oral medications/pills). TRINTELLIX may cause serious side effects including: • Antidepressants (like TRINTELLIX) may increase suicidal thoughts or actions in some children, teens or young adults within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed. • Serotonin Syndrome: A potentially life-threatening problem that can happen when TRINTELLIX is taken with certain other medicines. Symptoms may include agitation, hallucinations, coma or other changes in mental status; problems controlling movements or muscle twitching, stiffness or tightness; fast heartbeat, high or low blood pressure; sweating or fever; nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. • Abnormal bleeding or bruising: TRINTELLIX may increase your risk of bleeding or bruising, especially if you take the blood thinner warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®), a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), or aspirin. • Manic episode: Symptoms may include greatly increased energy; severe trouble sleeping; racing thoughts; reckless behavior; unusually grand ideas; excessive happiness or irritability; talking more or faster than usual. • Visual problems: May include eye pain, changes in vision, swelling or redness in or around the eye. • Low salt (sodium) levels in the blood: Symptoms may include headache; difficulty concentrating, memory changes or confusion; weakness and unsteadiness on your feet; and in severe or sudden cases hallucinations, fainting, seizures or coma. If not treated, severe low sodium levels can cause death. • Before starting TRINTELLIX, tell your healthcare provider if you have or had liver problems, seizures or convulsions, bipolar disorder (manic depression) or mania, low salt (sodium) levels in your blood, bleeding problems, drink alcohol, have any other medical conditions or if you are pregnant, nursing, plan to become pregnant, or plan to nurse. • TRINTELLIX and some medicines may interact with each other, may not work as well, or may cause serious side effects when taken together.. • Common side effects of TRINTELLIX include: nausea, constipation or vomiting. These are not all the possible side effects of TRINTELLIX. • Do not start or stop taking TRINTELLIX without talking to your healthcare provider first. Suddenly stopping TRINTELLIX when you take higher doses may cause you to have side effects including headache, stiff muscles, mood swings, sudden outbursts of anger, dizziness or feeling lightheaded, or runny nose. • Until you know how TRINTELLIX affects you, do not drive, operate heavy machinery or engage in other dangerous activities. • Avoid drinking alcohol while taking TRINTELLIX. Far and away the most common experience with KETAMINE infusions (at KETAMINE TREATMENT CENTERS) is to have NO SIDE EFFECTS in between treatments. ALL OF THE ABOVE INFORMATION REGARDING TRINTELLIX IS TAKEN VERBATIM FROM https://us.trintellix.com KETAMINE is a medicine developed more than 50 years ago for anesthesia during surgery, and has been used for that purpose since that time in children, adults, and animals. More recently, KETAMINE has been found to be a valuable and highly effective treatment for major depression, bipolar depression, postpartum depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and certain pain disorders such as fibromyalgia. KETAMINE TREATMENT CENTERS offers infusions as a simple outpatient procedure. Following a consultation to determine the appropriateness and safety of this treatment, patients are guided each step of the way with the help of a clinical coordinator to ensure a smooth, supportive process. Because the effects of a single infusion are short-lived, patients who show response (70%) will receive a series of infusions over a 2-3 week period. This is an off-label use of KETAMINE, meaning that the FDA has not approved this medication for this use. However, its safety and effectiveness have been demonstrated in multiple research studies, and off-label prescribing is a common and necessary practice in all fields of medicine. https://ktcpartnership.com/ Brintellix Medication Alternative 1-888-566-8774

If you have taken antidepressant medication like Zoloft, Prozac or Lexapro to name a few, you may have experienced bizarre or intense dreams. This very disturbing, it does not mean the medication is making you worse. Antidepressants suppress the REM stage of sleep which is the stage where you dream. The effect of this suppression is that you can get REM rebound where you experience very intense dreams. Changing medication may help as the effect may not manifest as much with the different medication.

Just a rant from some piece of shit who has had enough!! Depression is one of many over-diagnosed disorders most commonly treated with often dangerous psychotropic drugs. I have taken a few antidepressants over the years, with no “relief” from depression. Instead, the dependence on, and side effects of, these drugs creates more problems than they solve. Please research any and all alternative methods for treating your depression before you opt for prescription drugs.

Schizophrenics in the United States currently fare worse than patients in the world’s poorest countries. Medical journalist Robert Whitaker argues that modern treatments for the severely mentally ill are just old medicine in new bottles, and that we as a society are deeply deluded about their efficacy. The widespread use of lobotomies in the 1920's and 1930's gave way in the 1950's to electroshock and a wave of new drugs. In what is perhaps Robert Whitaker’s most damning revelation, he examines how drug companies in the 1980's and 1990's skewed their studies to prove that new anti-psychotic drugs were more effective than the old, while keeping patients in the dark about dangerous side effects. Robert Whitaker raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of “insanity,” and what we value most about the human mind.

And that doesn’t include sleeping pills. This is just antidepressants, antianxiety meds and also antipsychotics. Because we’re not getting enough sleep or enough exercise or enough sunshine more and more of us are feeling stressed and anxious and depressed. To me criteria for a major depressive episode you need to be depressed and down more days than not for at least two weeks. Sometimes women are down or depressed for three or four days every month. And it’s important to know that that is normal and it’s natural and it doesn’t have to necessarily be medicated away. 80 percent of prescriptions for psych meds in America are written by non-psychiatrists, by internists and family practitioners and GPs. And, you know, to really tease apart whether you have a psychiatric history, whether your family has a psychiatric history, whether you’ve ever been on these medicines before and whether you really need these medicines or there aren’t other ways to get you to feel better, that’s a long conversation that would take an hour. And internists don’t necessarily have this much time. An antidepressant is not a diagnostic tool. It’s not a test like if, you know, you’re not sure if you’re depressed or not but then you take an antidepressant and you start feeling better and you’re like oh, I must have been depressed. That’s no more accurate than, you know, taking Adderall and discovering that you’re able to concentrate and focus better. That doesn’t mean that you have an attention deficit disorder. People get on these meds and it turns out that they like them. They do feel happier and more relaxed and then they discover that there’s a price to pay. And then they discover that there’s a price to pay for feeling happier and relaxed and their libido is dampened. It’s more difficult to climax. It’s more difficult to cry. They may not feel as connected emotionally with people. And so over time some people decide, you know, I don’t want to be medicated anymore. I don’t feel like myself. And then they discover that it’s actually hard to get off of antidepressants. I’ll give Effexor withdrawal as an example and you can Google Effexor withdrawal and you will see for yourself that there are kind of bizarre symptoms that people have. They will talk about feeling brain zaps, electricity that shoots from their head out their arms. I’ve had patients say they feel their brain moving around in their skull or their eyes are sort of lagging behind their vision, you know. Weird sort of neurological sounding side effects. Unfortunately the way that healthcare is in America right now, I mean it is a commodity. It is a business. It affects the way that doctors and patients interact and sometimes there’s not enough time to really be thorough and have the harder conversations, you know, what did you eat for breakfast this morning? How much sleep did you get last night? Are you exercising? Sometimes it’s just easier to hand over a prescription.

This is a Documentary and will provide the facts about psychotropic drugs and the huge profits they create for the pharmaceutical industry. These drugs are not safe and have not been on the market long enough to provide sufficient long term studies regarding their effects. These drugs do cause addiction, however most "doctors" would call this dependence because you do not have to take an increasing dose over time. They are completely fine with you being addicted to the same amount of any given drug on a daily basis. Over half of the people that commit suicide in the United States are prescribed to psychotropic drugs.

For more see the post on Beyond Meds: http://beyondmeds.com/2016/02/09/6years-off/ Today is my anniversary off a huge psych drug cocktail I'd been on for 20 years. Below the video I made for this occasion is a cut and paste collection of the now 6 years documented since the also six year withdrawal process. http://beyondmeds.com/2010/01/10/recap-6-drugs-6-years-2/ In the video I speak to the inner resources that kept me going. I want to add here that I also was privileged to have a safe home and 24/7 hour care when I was bedridden and unable to leave the house for anything at all. Both the home and the care were provided for me by my husband. No one else in my life, including most of my close family had a clue what we were dealing with. I have to believe if they did they would have done more. The fact is there is nothing in society to help those who love us to understand what we are going through. There is a general denial by the medical establishment that this can even happen. This is something I’ve mostly been able to forgive but I don’t necessarily feel ready to spend much time with most of my family either. My mother is an exception here…she stayed in touch with my husband throughout the whole thing and was willing to do what she could. Indeed she often helped us stay afloat financially, which was, of course, critically important to staying alive. (I couldn’t speak very well for a couple of years so communicating by phone was out) So, my husband and I came through this together. There were many times I would have preferred to be alone given how heinously isolating this experience was simply by nature of the fact that no one can even begin to fathom what we are going through… This fact was painful for both me and Paul in different ways. For more info see: The isolation and sense of abandonment many people deal with when sick with protracted withdrawal illness. http://wp.me/P5nnb-3xy Those of us who have experienced protracted psychiatric drug withdrawal syndromes will always be the only ones who can give each other that acknowledgment. And it’s likely we will continue to freak out pretty much everyone around us when it’s at it’s worst. Anyway, the fact is I would be dead without Paul’s care and so that needs to be made clear as well. He has a deep trust and faith in life too and I wouldn’t have made it without his unusual ability to maintain that in the face of what I went through. Most people would have had me institutionalized, where I certainly would have died. It is a miracle that my husband could hold this space for me. Seriously a miracle. Most folks who come off these drugs don’t become as totally disabled as I did and can still leave the house etc. Not so for me and so, yes, my husband literally kept me alive and provided the space for me to literally disintegrate so that I could come back together again as well. One other person was a visitor during those darkest times. A woman who has become my dear friend. Sent to me from a volunteer organization to give me reiki, she could stand being with me as a witness when no one else could. Mary Joy had spent time as a chaplain in hospice and so knew how to be with people in pain. She told me once that she hadn’t seen another human being in all her time as chaplain who had to go through such an ordeal. She was completely serious. Having myself worked in hospice I know this to be true as well. It wasn’t something I would ever have concluded on my own, but since she said it and it rings true (I’ve worked in hospice too), I share it here now.

Brain zaps are part of what we call medication discontinuation syndrome. Medication discontinuation syndrome are symptoms that you can see when you suddenly stop your medication. In this case were talking about what you see when you stop the serotonin enhancing antidepressants. An easy way to remember these symptoms is with the mnemonic FINISH F - Flulike symptoms. I - insomnia. N - nausea or maybe even vomiting. I - imbalance like dizziness or even vertigo like your head is spinning. S - sensory disturbances and that would be the electric shocks that seem to be coming from your brain. H - for hyperarousal and this would be anxiety, irritability, aggression or even jerkiness.

Drug Withdrawals, Psychiatry, Mental Health Medications Dr. Breeding discusses the withdrawal symptoms or discontinuation symptoms of mental health meds like antidepressants, antipsychotics, amphetamines, adhd drugs, and anxiety medications. He gives different resources that person can use to help them taper off the drugs. Dr. Breeding points out that many doctors overlook the withdrawal symptoms when a person discontinues taking a psychiatric drug and thus claim that the person is having a relapse of mental illness instead of the effects of coming off of a drug one is addicted to.

Best Anxiety Medication - Ways To Make Your Anxiety Go Away With And Without Using Medication at http://www.PanicAwayProgram.org Although anxiety is accepted as being a normal and healthy emotion, some people suffer from intense anxiety, which ends up affecting their lives and causing them to keep away from certain situations that they used to be able to deal without difficulty. If you are suffering from anxiety then you should begin on finding an appropriate and effective method of treatment. http://www.PanicAwayProgram.org The first thing you need to do is determining the type of anxiety disorder you suffer from. There are five main types of anxiety disorders: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Effective treatments for each anxiety disorder are accessible, and new and enhanced treatments are always becoming available. Non-medication treatments Once you have found out the type of anxiety that you are suffering from you will be able to find the suitable anxiety disorder treatment. Mild anxiety disorders can often be treated relatively simple with relaxation and breathing techniques. Yoga, for instance, is a great type of exercise that can really help with anxiety and related health conditions. This is definitely something that should be tried prior to more serious forms of anxiety disorder treatment. If your anxiety is more severe or constant, then therapy or counseling may become the best option. Cognitive behavioral therapy for one has been confirmed to be very effective in the treatment of all types of anxiety disorder. In this therapy you work one on one with an experienced and qualified mental health professional, who will assist you to deal with your fears in a safe and controlled environment. Over time you will be able to find out the root of your anxiety and from there work towards developing a treatment plan that will lead you to your normal life. You can also select an anxiety disorder treatment plan that involves natural and herbal treatments. Herbal remedies such as valerian root and kava kava have over and over again proven to be effective at treating anxiety disorders and depression. You do need to keep in mind that just because these herbal remedies are natural it does not indicate that you do not still have to be careful. If taken inappropriately, these remedies can actually worsen your anxiety. Hypnotherapy, biofeedback, and acupuncture are other options for anxiety disorder treatment. In order to determine which one is going to work best for you, you need to talk to your doctor. You may need to try a few different methods before you find the one that works best for you and your particular anxiety condition. Medications for anxiety disorder Generally, most treatments for anxiety disorders include at least one prescription medication. If you start taking medication as a treatment for anxiety disorder, it is important to understand that this should not be a long-term solution and you should keep working with a certified mental health professional in order to determine the root cause of your anxiety. There are several common medications for anxiety disorder and one of them is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Serotonin is known as the brain's all-natural happy drug. Scientists believe that a lack of serotonin is the source of depression, anxiety, and panic attacks and therefore the purpose of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors is to increase the levels of serotonin in the brain. Some familiar brands that use selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are Prozac and Zoloft. Benzodiazepines are another choice of medication, which act like minor tranquilizers. They decelerate the body's nervous system, giving it an all-over calm. These types of medications can be addictive, so they should only be taken as prescribed. Some well-known brand names are Xanax and Valium. Another medication that is used to treat anxiety disorder is antidepressants, which affect the neurotransmitters in the brain. Effexor is a good example of this type of anxiety disorder medication. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) are very strong antidepressant drugs that should only be taken as a last resort after all other treatments have been tried. These drugs can be lethal when combined with certain other drugs and foods. One thing that need to be noted, anyone who takes antidepressants may become more susceptible to suicide, especially when they first begin to take them or when the dosage is changed.

I describe my experience with medication management as part of my treatment for my mental illnesses from 2014 to present. THERE IS NO SHAME IN TAKING MEDICATION!!!!! Let me know if you have any questions or your experiences with meds! I am an open book! Hope this helps! *****SNRI's work on BOTH SEROTONIN AND NOREPINEPHRINE! I LIED! Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) Antidepressant SNRIs help relieve depression symptoms, such as irritability and sadness, but some are also used for anxiety disorders and nerve pain. Here's how they work and what side effects they may cause. By Mayo Clinic Staff Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are a class of medications that are effective in treating depression. SNRIs are also sometimes used to treat other conditions, such as anxiety disorders and long-term (chronic) pain, especially nerve pain. SNRIs may be helpful if you have chronic pain in addition to depression. How SNRIs work SNRIs ease depression by impacting chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) used to communicate between brain cells. Like most antidepressants, SNRIs work by ultimately effecting changes in brain chemistry and communication in brain nerve cell circuitry known to regulate mood, to help relieve depression. SNRIs block the reabsorption (reuptake) of the neurotransmitters serotonin (ser-o-TOE-nin) and norepinephrine (nor-ep-ih-NEF-rin) in the brain. SNRIs approved to treat depression The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved these SNRIs to treat depression: Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq, Khedezla) Duloxetine (Cymbalta) ― also approved to treat anxiety and certain types of chronic pain Levomilnacipran (Fetzima) Venlafaxine (Effexor XR) ― also approved to treat anxiety and panic disorder Side effects and cautions All SNRIs work in a similar way and generally can cause similar side effects, though some people may not experience any side effects. Side effects are usually mild and go away after the first few weeks of treatment. Taking your medication with food may reduce nausea. If you can't tolerate one SNRI, you may be able to tolerate a different one, as each SNRI varies in chemical makeup. The most common possible side effects of SNRIs include: Nausea Dry mouth Dizziness Headache Excessive sweating Other possible side effects may include: Tiredness Constipation Insomnia Changes in sexual function, such as reduced sexual desire, difficulty reaching orgasm or the inability to maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction) Loss of appetite Typically the benefits of antidepressants outweigh the possible side effects. Which antidepressant is best for you depends on a number of issues, such as your symptoms and any other health conditions you may have. Ask your doctor and pharmacist about the most common possible side effects for your specific SNRI and read the patient medication guide that comes with the prescription.

Since I was a young teenager I’ve been on anti-depressants for anxiety/depression. They help a little bit but never quite relieved me from my issues. Not to mention they came with a handful of side effects. I was put on testosterone at 23 after finding out that my testosterone levels were extremely low. I quickly began noticing improvement in my mood, my anxiety, energy, levels and libido. I thought it had more to do with switching to a new anti depressant which I did at the same time. I switched from Effexor to Prozac, Wellbutrin and the testosterone. I started to notice hair loss 9 months into treatment and wanted to stop to see if the medications were the reason. They weren’t. I needed up back on Prozac and Wellbutrin but never felt as good as I did prior. I did things to try and raise my t levels on my own but still felt lousy. I asked to get back on trt but my doctor wanted to check my levels again. This time they came up at 400 so he didn’t want to treat me even though those levels are very low for my age. I finally found a doctor who is willing to treat me and now I want to make a video journal here on YouTube for myself and anyone that is considering testosterone replacement therapy. Each week I’ll let you know what changes I notice. What symptoms of low t go away and when they go away. Today is day one on testosterone and hcg which me luck and I’ll let you know how it goes.

In the absence of any objective medical tests to determine who has ADD or ADHD, doctors rely in part on standardized assessments and the impressions of teachers and guardians while the they administer leave little room for other causes or aggravating factors, such as diet, or environment. Hence, diagnosing a child or adolescent with ADD or ADHD is often the outcome, although no organic basis for either disease has yet to be clinically proven. Psychiatrists may then prescribe psychotropic drugs for the children without first without making it clear to parents that these medications can have severe side-effects including insomnia, loss of appetite, headaches, psychotic symptoms and even potentially fatal adverse reactions, such as cardiac arrhythmia. And yet, despite these dangers, many school systems actually work with government agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who refuse with the prospect of having their children taken from the home unless they cooperate. As a Martial Arts teacher for over 30 years I have seen the damage caused by pharmaceutical and street drugs on relatives and on a great number of students in Brazil and specially here in the USA where the Big Pharma rules. People are being bullied by these corporations of drug-dealers into submission. Martial Arts will teach a kid to stop any bully in the playground, EDUCATION and INFORMATION will stop these drug peddlers from bulling you and your family. There are many natural alternatives out there to treat anything that is bothering you, just do a research on the subject. This is a Documentary and will provide the facts about psychotropic drugs and the huge profits they create for the pharmaceutical industry. These drugs are not safe and have not been on the market long enough to provide sufficient long term studies regarding their effects. These drugs do cause addiction, however most "doctors" would call this dependence because you do not have to take an increasing dose over time. They are completely fine with you being addicted to the same amount of any given drug on a daily basis. Over half of the people that commit suicide in the United States are prescribed to psychotropic drugs.

If you take either of these two antidepressants together with an amphetamine, watch out. You can significantly become overdosed on the amphetamine. Often the interaction can unpredictably occur several months later. The patient becomes toxic to the amphetamine, angry, irrational, can't sleep, can't eat, and can become dangerously destructive. The Adderall or Vyvanse often gets blamed.

More films about America: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/usa/ The US has a highly developed pharmaceutical industry offering treatments for all kinds of mental disorders. Millions of Americans are being medicated for ailments as diverse as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and many others. Even young children are being put on psychiatric drugs. If parents decline such treatment, social services may intervene. Many patients, who’ve been taking these pills for years, insist that they do more harm than good. They have experienced disturbing side effects such as suicidal thoughts, addiction and even neurological damage. A lot of patients were put on their medication as children and by the time they were legally old enough to decide for themselves, they had already become addicted. They testify that breaking their dependency on the drugs is extremely difficult because, like any habit forming narcotic, they cause severe withdrawal symptoms. RTD meets some of the sufferers to hear their stories of battling to shake off prescribed medicines. Father of 5, Josh, was given anxiety medication, it caused Akathisia and Dystonia. Both are physical disorders causing involuntary and uncontrolled body movement and have left him disabled. Olivia’s son was prescribed psychiatric drugs to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD). Olivia soon noticed side effects and refused to continue giving him the pills. He was taken by social services and hospitalised. Denis from Russia used to work for a pharmaceutical company in the US but after meeting his wife, who had suffered from the side effects of antidepressants for most of her life, he started questioning the necessity for such widespread psychiatric prescribing. Their claims are supported by lawyers and medical professionals. Psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin is a vocal critic of psychiatric medication. He is adamant that the drugs are toxic and that many problems people talk to physiatrists about can be treated without resorting to drugs. His book on how to stop taking psychiatric medicines has helped thousands of patients who have struggled with the challenge. RTD meets a few of them.
