An increasingly vocal group of psychiatrists is warning about the long-term use and casual prescribing of anti-depressant drugs. The bookAnatomy of an Epidemic should be required reading for anyone taking or considering anti-depressants, as well as their family members: It outlines the research showing that these powerful drugs can actually CAUSE long-term depression. Now a large new study points to the reality that over half of those taking the drugs experience adverse side-effects. The most frequent? 62% report sexual difficulties. 42% report a reduction in positive emotions. 39% report suicidal thoughts. Want a safe alternative? The research on EFT for depression shows marked improvements for most people in 6 therapy sessions or less. But beware of the side-effects: reduced anxiety, pain, and insomnia!
