A neurologist, who certainly should have known better, gave the SNRI antidepressant, Effexor, to 14 year old Jamie Tierney. Let her share with you what horrors she suffered as a result. Luckily her parents knew what they were seeing in Jamie's behavior was not her and continued to search for answers. I still remember her mother's first call to me and the hours upon hours spent in helping Jamie to be able to withdraw safely off of this deadly drug that almost took her life.

And so common for so many young people who are targeted with these drugs as they enter college Jamie was offered the antidepressant Wellbutrin with the sales pitch that this antidepressant does not work like the other antidepressants (BS!) and it is safe so there is no need to worry. Jamie suffered the same nightmare all over again. Thankfully she survived that and has learned to avoid any of these drugs for the rest of her life!

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!
WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: http://store.drugawareness.org/ And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan.
