Antidepressant Withdrawal Syndrome

Withdrawing and Recovering from Antidepressants is Possible

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.

Withdrawals from Antidepressants have been termed a Discontinuation Syndrome and it is recommended to gradually taper.  Yet many find that even with a slow titration the withdrawals are too uncomfortable and need assistance to stop their antidepressant. 

Our expert team utilizes slow titration schedules combined with all-natural Nutraceuticals to ease Antidepressant withdrawal symptoms. This is a low-cost program with proven results.
