Began taking 30mg Seroxat on 15th Jan 1997 for grief issues. Remained at that dosage until Dec 05, did doctor ct, akathesia set in along with being non functional and overly emotional, brain fog. Doctor prescribed prozac, propranelol and diazeapam to counteract side effects, and told me to ct those 3 after 2.5/3 months use, induced wd seizure on 2nd day after ct. Was reinstated on seroxat 20mg in april 06, remained at that dose until Nov 07 and began a very slow taper lasting 56 months, finally DRUG FREE on 11th may 2011.

The brain is capable of healing but I'm appalled that Dr. Mercola has run this infomercial for Daniel Amen, his clinics, and SPECT scans. Dr. Mercola should know better.

 

SPECT scans reveal organic brain damage. They are irrelevant (and inordinately expensive) for examining psychological conditions or mood disorders.

I read Amens book, which I found interesting but not meaty and not particularly actionable. Drink lots of water and don't play football or sustain head trauma... stuff like that. Though it was Amen where I first read of the connection between SSRIs and impulsiveness, I believe. He included a few anecdotes of patients displaying unusual binge drinking or promiscuity correlating with intro of ADs. Said behavioral side effects are underestimated and missed by and large, that he was keen to monitor patients for abnormal compulsiveness as it occurred fairly frequently...

 

Dr. Mercola's interviews are always agreeable, at least the ones I've heard. I've not ever heard him challenge a guest so they're all infomercial-like.

"Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast
I'm drowning in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free
I've got nothing but affection for all those who sailed with me.

Everybody's moving, if they ain't already there
Everybody's got to move somewhere
Stick with me baby, stick with me anyhow
Things should start to get interesting right about now."

- Zimmerman
