Interested in Withdrawing from your Antidepressant


Withdrawing and Recovering from Antidepressants is Possible. Call our non-profit for a FREE consultation at 866-605-2333.

Estimates show that 78% of people will have a Discontinuation Syndrome (withdrawal) from certain antidepressants and SSRIs with symptoms ranging from troubling to disabling. Often the withdrawals are misinterpreted as a worsening of depression or the symptoms interrupt life to the degree that the antidepressant is reinstated. This scenario happens all too frequently because the tapering process is unclear to so many. Even tapering is often not enough due to the withdrawal symptoms. Remember, your body must also heal from the Antidepressant.

Antidepressant Withdrawal Information
There are many different types of drugs used in the treatment of depression, including SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), Atypical Antidepressants, Tricyclic Antidepressants, Atypical Antidepressants and MAOIs (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors).

The long list of side effects common to all antidepressants drives many people to seek other treatment options.

To understand how antidepressants work its important to understand how the brain cells communicate. Messages about emotions, body temperatures, behavior, appetite and many other functions are passed between neurons (nerve cells), with the space between the sending and receiving neurons referred to as a synapse. Neurotransmitters use the receiving neuron to deliver their message.  When the neurotransmitters send their message, they return and can be absorbed by the sending neuron in a process called reuptake. This allows the neurotransmitter to be used elsewhere in the body as only a tiny fraction of Serotonin is in the brain.

What most antidepressants do is prevent the reuptake of Serotonin and/or Norepinephrine, thus pushing levels higher in the synapse but starving other areas of the body that also rely on these vital neurotransmitters. MAOIs create an enzyme that breaks down neurotransmitters, therefore pushing levels higher in the synapse while preventing other areas from receiving Serotonin.

Approximately 95% of our Serotonin is produced in the gut region and this explains why all antidepressants have significant stomach related side effects.

All Antidepressants cause significant side effects including nausea, nervousness, agitation, restlessness, dizziness, reduced sexual desire, drowsiness, insomnia, weight gain or loss, headache, dry mouth, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation.  The overall side effects were serious enough for the FDA to issue multiple warnings and some of the drugs are included in product liability lawsuits.
