Depression Medication Side Effects

If you’re concerned about possible depression medication side effects, you have reason to be worried.

depression pills may cause further depression

While it’s true that not all people are affected in a major way from side effects, it’s important to note that even without those issues, many folks find that the drugs simply stop working after some time.

This then creates the need to find a second drug to pick up the slack in helping with your depression issues.

What happens next isn’t any fun. There are often withdrawal symptoms as you work to get off the first medication. These symptoms mimic those that people experience when they’re trying to stop dependency on alcohol or recreational drugs.

The symptoms may include:

  • Further Depression
  • Seizures
  • Anxiety
  • Psychosis
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Suicidal Thoughts

Are Depression TV Commercials Wrong?

When we hear that chemical imbalances in your brain cause depression, is that really true? Is it accurate, as the medical community tells us, that these pharmaceuticals work by increasing the levels of serotonin back to “normal”?

When you consider that there’s no known way to scientifically measure how much serotonin is present in the brain, combine that with the fact that medical researchers have very little knowledge about how these depression drugs actually work, and you can see how these claims are dubious, at best.

Even the U.S. gov’t, in a study conducted in 2006, revealed how even after trying two antidepressant medications, less than 50% of the people come to experience zero depression symptoms.

What we’re getting at here is how drugs aren’t the full solution. There are other options available to you where side effects are nothing to worry about. (Of course, if you’re already on depression drugs, be sure to talk to your doctor first before going off them)

When Drugs Definitely Aren’t the Answer

If you’ve already tried lifestyle changes to help with your depression, such as better nutrition, quality sleep, meditation, exercise, etc, and you’re still suffering, go to your doctor to check into whether you have a medical cause.

If that’s the case, then understand that antidepressants and/or therapy won’t help you. You’ve got to begin working to heal that underlying condition.

This is where it gets interesting regarding sound therapy, stress, and medical conditions…

Using Sound Therapy

Many physical ailments and conditions in our modern world are directly related to the stress we experience. Stress has been linked to causing high blood pressure, anxiety, asthma, chest pains, digestive issues, stomach pains, gas, weight loss, headaches, dizziness, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.

The stress itself or dealing with these medical conditions can then, of course, lead to your depression.

Sound therapy may be a solution. The study of wave phenomena and vibration is called Cymatics and during these studies, scientists have observed the effect sound has on liquids, powders, pastes, sand, etc.

What they’ve discovered is that sound frequency has the ability to physically move matter.

When we realize that your body’s tissues and organs all vibrate at particular frequencies, we can begin to see how sound therapy has the ability to reduce stress and the physical ailments caused by stress.

In a nutshell, sound healing effectively brings your cells back into alignment after they’ve lost their ability to communicate, due to stress, anxiety and depression.
