Fast acting antidepressants?

Recommended Posts

jthebrave

Although it goes against my better judgment, I am curious as to when the "new" fasting acting AD's are coming out and if they hold any promise for better, faster, and SAFER treatment options? Since ECT and TMS are out of the question for me right now...what other choice do people have to look at if they've tried all of the AD's on the market right now with little success???

i had a little peek at your introductory thread jthebrave.... I am curious as to why you would think there could be new, safer pharmaceuticals coming out.....

 

your poor history with them should red flag you against taking any psycho active drug.

 

really, the safest treatment for you would be omega 3 and meditation (for all of us!)

You're right, I doubt there will ever be safer pharmaceuticals unless the drug companies start listening to people and how badly their drugs affect patients like us. I highly doubt they'd ever do that. But I can still dream....can't I? I mean, the thought of something relieving depression and anxiety (Ketamine) in hours or days (with little side effects) is quite appealing. But there's always that catch that the drug companies fail to tell us about....

The problem is, every new AD fixes a previously reported issue.. until it's been prescribed it long enough to show it doesn't.  Big Pharma has a lonnggg track record of this.  Beware of anything purported to be new.. so far, NOT.

From the title, I thought the post was going to be about alcohol. Alas, no such luck.
