Antidepressant SCAM Targeting Seniors

Georgia was 62 when she was diagnosed with depression.

And you know what happened next… her doctor started loading her up on antidepressants.

The more she took them, the more depressed she became.

It took Georgia’s doctors two years to realize that the antidepressants weren’t helping her… they were making her worse.

And Georgia is not alone.

New research has proven that antidepressants are NOT the cure for depression… but they may be a cause.

And seniors could be especially at risk.

The drug companies have made a fortune selling prescription antidepressants.

But those same drugs may actually be fueling the entire depression epidemic in America.

More importantly – that pill you’re popping every day could actually be making you even more depressed.

The brand new book The Sedated Society exposes the nasty truth behind what antidepressants are doing to us.

You’ve heard before that our bodies can become resistant to drugs, like antibiotics.

Well, the same thing happens with antidepressants.

The ten experts who collaborated on The Sedated Society found that antidepressants can cause “chronic depressive syndrome” which makes the condition permanent and immune to drugs of any kind.

In fact, up to 80 percent of patients will experience a serious depressive recurrence while taking antidepressants.

The drugs just stop working. And that can be especially dangerous for seniors who may have taken the meds for a while and built up immunity to them.

The authors of The Sedated Society found that over time SSRIs are no more effective than placebos for treating depression.

Not to mention the side effects and withdrawal.

If you or someone you love is on antidepressants, consult your doctor immediately to discuss alternatives.

Instead, talk to your doctor about natural remedies and other therapeutic options such as 5HTP which does help the brain produce more serotonin rather than warping your body’s use of the serotonin you already have.

This and other supplements like St. John’s Wort and Fish Oil can be purchased online or at your local health food store.
