The Downside of Antidepressants

The major financial slump which happened in the last quarter of the year in 2008 had caused a lot of people having the inclination in attempting suicide. Among those who had caused the furore, majority of them fall in the range of 10-19 years old, in another word, they are all teens and adolescents virtually.

As a consequence, those who took up the roles as a parent, will often figure out the best method to cure or treat their problems. Very commonly, these parents would probably purchase some antidepressants for their kids and children to consume.

But sadly, antidepressants do not seem to be the solution to solve the problem. In the contrary, antidepressants seem to cause more and more people in attempting suicide. These statements, of course, are based on a number of evidences, and we'll list them all out over here.

First thing first, even in the year of 2004, FDA (United States Food & Drug Administration) had postulated that antidepressants actually did have negative impacts on those who consumed, especially the adolescents as mentioned.

As the time goes by, up to this day, there are also strong evidence which show such inclination. For example, this piece of news tells us that

"Two out of five
suicide victims among troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have been found to be on antidepressants" - cited from eNews Park Forest.

The news mentioned above was published just a couple of days ago, on 20th May 2009. Indeed, many kind of antidepressants revolve in this sophisticated society somehow, prove to trigger more emotional problems rather than suppress them.

However, there are also doctors and parents who still support the idea in prescribing antidepressants to those who experiencing depression. For instance, Sara Fritz, a mother of a teen, had expressed sincerest gratitude to the psychologists and neurologists who had been treating her child in the year of 2004. The treatment used was by prescribing drugs which contains fluoxetine in it. Fritz was relieved when her son's depression went unrecognized after a certain period with the mentioned treatment. We have to admit that we cannot deny that fluoxetine could very well treat th problems, but unfortunately, it brings a lot of side effects which you probably never came across of.

But with the consumption of GT&F products, it can be concluded that depression patients can now release their burdens and forget all about the worries they face in their daily lives. With this supportive evidence, it show very clearly that chromium is virtually the one minor element which shows good signs in curbing emotional problems among the sufferers.
