How would you like to be told that along with this antidepressant may come suicidal thoughts and depression? Come again? As if it isn’t bad enough that drug labels contain 70 negative side-effects on average, people also have to worry about a drug feeding the very problem it is supposed to treat. It is the equivalent of having your car repaired and the mechanic informing you that there may be an increased chance for a crash due to the repairs. I don’t think anyone would go to that mechanic.
The Food and Drug Administration even admits that antidepressants are more than capable of causing suicidal thoughts and an increased suicide risk. If the insanity of an antidepressant causing an increased suicide risk does not stop you from popping pills, then consider the other complications that arise from drug use.
- Drug labels contain 70 negative side-effects on average. Even very regularly prescribed drugs can have 100 negative side-effects, with some drugs lurking up around 525 negative side-effects. Suicidal thoughts leading to an increased risk of suicide is just one of those side-effects to look out for, following the very last possible side effects – death.
- Mixing prescription and non-prescription drugs can cause serious problems. Even though you can for information on mixing medications, you simply can not know of the extremely complex chemical reactions caused by mixing any dangerous chemicals together.
- You become reliant on the drug. Taking drugs in an attempt to solve problems only leaves you reliant on them because the problem is not being solved at the root. It is similar to covering up the “check engine” light on your car and deeming the problem solved. The “check engine” light is, however, is not the problem; it is only the symptom of a problem faced by the engine.
Why Chance Antidepressants Side-Effects When You can Just Have Some Omega-3’s?
Let’s face it, no one is feeling depressed because of a drug deficiency. But people are feeling depressed from a deficiency of vitamins, nutrients, and omega-3’s. Omega-3 fatty acids in particular have been shown time and time again to help depression. The role omega-3 fatty acids play in helping depression could have to do with the brain being made up of about 60% fat. When you consume high quality fats such as DHA and EPA, you are essentially feeding the brain and giving it what it needs to function. A great source of omega-3 fats is walnut oil or flaxseed oil. You could also take a supplement of high quality fish oil such as that derived from krill.
