It’s the SECRET drug crisis hiding right under our noses… a wave of dependency and outright addiction so common that you almost certainly know someone who’s hooked.
It’s not those pain pills soaking up all the media attention right now.
In fact, this is getting NO ATTENTION at all.
These drugs are flying under the radar because they’re not causing overdose deaths.
But make no mistake about it: Antidepressant drugs are ruining MILLIONS of lives, and people are trapped in a cruel cycle of dependency that NO ONE warned them about.
Yes, friend, people want OFF these drugs — pronto. But good luck trying to make that happen, because a stunning new report in The New York Times exposes a hidden risk that even doctors won’t mention.
These drugs can be practically impossible to quit!
When they try to shake the habit, patients get slammed with waves of withdrawal symptoms that are WORSE than the depression that led to the drugs in the first place.
Some report dizziness, confusion, fatigue, sleep struggles, nausea, headaches, and more.
Others even battle a frightening condition called paresthesia, which makes you feel like you’re getting electric shocks delivered right into your skull.
It’s shock treatment… minus the treatment!
Instead of taking these drugs short-term assistance — as they were INTENDED – people stay on them for pretty much forever.
Right now, 1 in 10 American adults have been taking antidepressants for at least two years.
That’s a 60 percent jump from 2010, and it adds up to 25 million people – that’s the entire population of Texas!
And that’s not even the most shocking number here.
Close to 16 million American adults have been taking these meds for five years or more.
And that’s why the drug companies are keeping this under wraps.
They don’t like selling drugs that people take for a week or two and then stop, like how you stop taking antibiotics after they quickly clear an infection.
Their game these days is “lifetime” drugs, meds that you have to take forever once you’re on them: statins, blood pressure drugs, diabetes meds, and more.
Now, it looks like they secretly added another class of medication to the list of “lifetime drugs.”
Care to guess what happens when people take antidepressants for that long? That’s all you can do — guess.
Since these drugs were intended for short-term use, there are almost NO studies that run for years – so if you think that the drugs are scrambling your brain now, who knows what they’ll do over the long haul?
Needless to say, if you’re struggling with mood problems, don’t turn to long-term meds for a short-term situation.
Turn to tried-and-true natural therapies including B vitamins and herbal remedies as well as testing and treatment for nutritional and hormonal problems in the care of an experienced naturopathic medical doctor.
