Antidepressant Use = Increased Risk of Death

February 9, 2010

Clinical depression is a serious ailment that in itself has considerable health risks. But added to those are the additional risks that come from taking the drugs prescribed for this condition. A recent survey looked at how two types of antidepressants impact people’s health. They discovered that “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) use was associated with increased stroke risk and all-cause mortality” (death). And that “Tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) use was associated with increased risk of all-cause mortality.”

Given the above, it seems obvious that more natural forms of care (nutrition, chiropractic, herbs, prayer, positive feedback, etc.) should be included in an effort to address depression. There are alternatives to potentially harmful drugs, but first you need to find a doctor who is willing to help you include these.
