The more mind drugs taken the more the underground water for drinking and the absorbtion by bathing creates persons in geographic areas intoxicated to the chemicals that create chemical depression. Its a money maker for the medical / pharmaceutical industry and very political like the mind drugging of students .

Antidepressants are a popular treatment, it's a well-known fact.
You say NOT to take them, but what if i just can`t feel myself normal without them??
i take Cymbalta over 2 years, it really helps me.

Anyone who is starting to take zoloft (or considering an ssri or any other antidep. for that matter!), listen to your doctor, but at the same time please hear me. After 8mo taking zoloft and then tapering off in the last 3 weeks I have been suffering every side effect possible - from lapses in breathing and muscle fatigue/weakness (to the point of not walking) to the common brain zaps and dizziness - you name it I have or have had it. I am currently on fmla leave from work because I still am not able to walk! Those are just a few of the many after effects. Not to mention while I was on it I became an emotionless and manic battering ram that destroyed friendships and (almost) my marriage. All because I had ppd and some anxiety, which the doctor (and most of modern medicine) thinks the "easy" way is drugs. Let me tell you, the drug only masks your symptoms. It doesn't "fix" you. Even if you are seeing a psychologist while taking the drug, chances are the drug will have changed your brain (for the worse) enough that the counseling will not have its maximum effect, if any positive benefits at all. My point in writing on this forum is to tell you all before the drug has a chance to ruin your life, as it has mine, DON'T TAKE IT!! Try cognitive behavioral therapy and real life experience therapy first!!! Please.
*Note* I am not a doctor and my advice is not a subtitute for medical advice. I just feel that if you do more research on your own (See books by Joseph Glenmullen and William Glasser) you may realize that drugs such as zoloft are dangerous poison.
Feel free to ask me more questions on ths topic and as always I also welcome criticisms, as this is the real world.

7th tip: Avoid Ruth Rosen.

She puts here big ass nose into everyone's business and if she can ruin a good thing she will.

If you fart she can smell it and tell you what you ate.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. W-PHARMACY .COM is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

Yeah this can be helpful as antidepressant. I would recommend homeopathy treatment which has more naturalistic results. Drss health center is a well known homeopathic center provide extra care to such patients suffering from depression or such conditions.

Anti depressant bifurcation depends on psychological and physiological changes in the body along with family history and risk factors.

Gotta love when people who have obviously never suffered from an anxiety disorder or clinical depression says "No! Don't take anti-depressants!...They are evil!" blah blah.
Try living in someone's shoes with a chemical imbalance which REQUIRES medication and then tell me that 'exercise and relaxation techniques' alone work for you.
A lot of misinformed people out there.
Depression is not caused by a "chemical imbalance", but antidepressants do cause major chemical imbalances and often lead to tardive dysphoria. What is tardive dysphoria you may wonder? It's chronic, treatment resistant depression CAUSED by antidepressants. Stop listening to your doctor who is basically a glorified drug dealer, working for the drug companies. Start looking at the actual research done by researchers who have no ties, and thereby conflicts of interest, to the drug companies.

Use your brain. Just because something makes you feel good, doesn't mean it's good for you.

Alcohol is popular too. Why not drink more? Maybe a little cocaine, too.

This lady reports anyone and everyone she doesn't agree with for abuse, yet she is one of the most abusive people on here. This post of hers, like many other, is uncalled for and verbally abusive. Please delete it and talk to her about the fact that this is a free country and she is not the dictator. Thank you.
