Studies in mice show a link between antidepressants taken during pregnancy and their offspring being diagnosed with autism. An international team with Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore in charge has discovered a possible relationship between common antidepressant fluoxetine and autistic-like characteristic in adult mice. Fluoxetine comes under brand names Sarafem and Prozac. The study was published in the Molecular Brain journal. Collaborators in the research come from South Korea and Singapore.

Since the 1980s, people in the world have been able to access antidepressants that they have used to treat depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and a host of other psychiatrist disorders. Some of the most commonly used antidepressants are escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), sertraline (Zoloft), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil), citalopram (Celexa) and Duloxetine (Cymbalta).

Over this time, prescription of these drugs has more than doubled, which in itself is a cause of concern. While they have worked to reduce depression symptoms, they have also been noted to have

Depression is a severe mental disorder that’s becoming common across the world. While it’s frequent occurrence would be expected to prompt immediate and strong action to mitigate effects and manage the condition, depression continues to negatively affect quality of life, the ability to work, and it’s also the reason for the increase in suicide risk. And as all these things go on, the treatment options available for depression are not satisfactory and even when treatment is prescribed, the side effects of the medications prescribed aren’t well addressed.

One of the biggest side effects of taking antidepressants is insomnia and other sleep-related problems.  Most of the patients

Individuals experiencing depression will often be recommended an antidepressant.

But while the unwanted side effects of the prescriptions (weight gain, headaches, etc.) are widely recognized, one effect is just just starting to be discussed publicly. They may stop working.

If you find that your medication isn’t effective anymore, and your depression symptoms are resurfacing, there are various reasons why this might be occurring.

For most people, melatonin may be the remedy to preventing another awful slumber. We realize that sleep is extremely crucial to keeping up the health of the body and warding off severe and chronic health issues. But what is melatonin? It’s actually a hormone that is in charge of establishing our sleep-wake cycle, so long as you have the proper melatonin dosage.

So… what is the proper dosage?

A study with MIT researchers,  Richard Wurtman, the Cecil H. Green Distinguished Professor and program director of the Clinical Research Center was published in late 2001 confirming the best dosage, and it’s not the standard dose you can pick up at Walgreens.

For most people with depression, a definitive depression diagnosis from a psychiatrist often means accepting that you will be on antidepressants for most of your life. For many, this means delaying the first prescription for as long as possible, but after some time, the use of the antidepressants is inevitable. Unfortunately, from the time you accept medication, even as your symptoms lift, another heavy cloud hovers – the fact that the medications you now depend on come with adverse side effects. And, you might never get over the effects of the medication even though

The more anti-inflammatory compounds – like omega-3 fatty acids, curcumin/black seed oil, garlic, ginger and magnesium you take in, the slower you’ll age. Spanish nutrition experts observed this after carrying out a study that indicates that a diet with a low dietary inflammatory index delays the decrease of telomere duration.

Study

The experts calculated the duration of the telomeres in the blood cells of 520 Spanish citizens aged 55-88. Telomeres can be found in your DNA and work like a sort of molecular clock. The lengthier they are, the healthier you’ll be and the longer you may still have to live. The quicker your telomeres decrease, the quicker your process of aging runs.

Antidepressants balance chemicals within brain that control depression and anxiety. For some with depression, these drugs can easily improve a chemical imbalance.

Anyone who has used antidepressants for more than six-weeks are more inclined to have withdrawal symptoms once they halt the drugs.

Individuals taking antidepressants should not quit “cold turkey.” Stopping abruptly tosses the brain into a situation of imbalance that may be more serious than earlier. The resulting problems are generally psychological and physical.

In 2008, the FDA approved Cymbalta for the treatment of fibromyalgia, and the drug was effectively classified as a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant. This was good news for the fibromyalgia (FM) community as before this approval, there was only one other drug accessible for the treatment of FM.

While Cymbalta was great news, it was/is an antidepressant at the end of the day, and so the medical fraternity was already aware of potential withdrawal symptoms if patients abruptly stopped using it. Still, no one was ready for the severe Cymbalta withdrawal that is experienced by patients. It is so bad that the medical fraternity has coined a term for it: Cymbalta Discontinuation Syndrome.
