How Do Antidepressants And Antipsychotic Drugs Change Your Brain? with Robert Whitaker
 
07:48
Schizophrenics in the United States currently fare worse than patients in the world’s poorest countries. Medical journalist Robert Whitaker argues that modern treatments for the severely mentally ill are just old medicine in new bottles, and that we as a society are deeply deluded about their efficacy. The widespread use of lobotomies in the 1920's and 1930's gave way in the 1950's to electroshock and a wave of new drugs. In what is perhaps Robert Whitaker’s most damning revelation, he examines how drug companies in the 1980's and 1990's skewed their studies to prove that new anti-psychotic drugs were more effective than the old, while keeping patients in the dark about dangerous side effects. Robert Whitaker raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of “insanity,” and what we value most about the human mind.

How to Lose Weight While Taking Antidepressants?
 
08:51
Losing weight is difficult as it is but it is even bigger challenge when you are taking antidepressants. Discover why Dr. Sam Robbins, health expert, recommends Lean Optimizer™, as one of the solutions for weight loss while taking Antidepressants. http://drsam.co/yt/WhileTakingAntidepressants-LO ************************** How to Lose Weight While Taking Antidepressants? ********************** Losing weight is never fun and for most of us, it is not easy especially as we get older. Losing weight is difficult as it is but it is even bigger challenge when you are taking antidepressants. Moreover, the reason is due to your change in hormones. Over the years, I have discovered TWO main reasons for the weight gain from use of antidepressants: The first is the most commonly prescribe antidepressants, SSRIs - such as Prozac, Lexapro, Paxil, Zoloft - they work by increasing serotonin, which helps regulate your appetite. So typically, antidepressant users start eating more because their appetite has increased which is the initial and primary cause of weight gain. Secondly, there is another phenomenon that I have noticed over the years: With people who swear they are not eating more and yet, they still gain weight. After doing lots of different blood work I have noticed a change in metabolic markers: One of them being lowered thyroid production as well as a change adrenal function such as higher cortisol levels (stress hormone) and lower adrenal production. Both are leading to slower metabolism and faster weight gain. As you can see, hormones really do control everything, throw in aging and now things get a bit more challenging. In this video, I am going to give you proven solutions that will help reduce your appetite and maximize your fat loss. So, do not worry – it is not your fault. There is hope!

The Effects of Antidepressants and Anxiety Drugs: Experts Panel
 
30:31
Are you getting enough information on the treatment of depression and anxiety? What are the results of pharmaceutical treatment of these disorders and how safe are these drugs? Experts Panel with Gabriel Cousens, M.D., Irving Kirsch, Ph.D., Robert Whitaker, Gwen Olsen Connect with The Real Truth About Health http://www.therealtruthabouthealth.com/ https://www.facebook.com/The-Real-Truth-About-Health-467500836655781/ https://twitter.com/RTAHealth Robert Whitaker - investigates how the influence of pharmaceutical money and guild interests has corrupted the behavior of the American Psychiatric Association and academic psychiatry during the past 35 years. He documents how the psychiatric establishment regularly misled the American public about what was known about the biology of mental disorders, the validity of psychiatric diagnoses, and the safety and efficacy of its drugs. He also looks at how these two corrupting influences encouraged the expansion of diagnostic boundaries and the creation of biased clinical practice guidelines. This corruption has led to significant social injury, and in particular, a societal lack of informed consent regarding the use of psychiatric drugs, and the pathologizing of normal behaviors in children and adults. Robert Whitaker argues that reforming psychiatry will require the neutralization of these two corrupting influences—pharmaceutical money and guild interests—and the establishment of multidisciplinary authority over the field of mental health. Gabriel Cousens - Not all depressions are alike. And despite the attention given to Prozac and other drugs, there quite literally is no magic pill. Someone who suffers from depression needs a customized, individual program, one that attacks the personal, biochemical roots of the problem. Dr. Cousens shows how to heal depression safely by synergistically rebalancing what he calls "the natural drugs of the brain," using a five-step program of mood-boosting substances, vitamin and mineral supplements, and a mood-enhancing diet and lifestyle. Grounded in cutting-edge science, yet accessible and safe, he shows how to regain your optimism and energy through balancing your own biochemistry. Irving Kirsch - Irving Kirsch has the world doubting the efficacy of antidepressants. Based on fifteen years of research he makes an overwhelming case that what the medical community considered a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment is little more than a faulty consensus. But Kirsch does more than just criticize: He offers a path society can follow to stop popping pills and start proper treatment. Gwen Olsen - The United States health care system is killing Americans at an alarming rate, even though we spend over fifteen percent of the Gross National Product (GNP) on health care. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, our health care outcomes ranked only fifteenth among twenty-five industrialized nations worldwide. Adverse effects from prescription drugs have become the third-leading killer of Americans. Only heart disease and cancer claim more lives. We trust our doctors to inform us and our government to protect us from medical malfeasance that may put profits ahead of consumer health and safety. But the fine line walked by the FDA between the interests of the pharmaceutical manufacturers and the American public has continually been crossed. The result is the unleashing of an unprecedented number of lethal drugs on the U.S. market! Passionate believers in whole food plant based diets, no chemicals, minimal pharmaceutical drugs, no GMO's.

Anti-Depressants: What You NEED to Know!
 
04:39
In January 2016, a Federal Task Force recommended that people who have "disturbances of sleep...loss of energy and interest in activities that were once a source of pleasure" should be considered candidates for antidepressants." Okay, fine...there are criteria for clinical depression, but insomnia and loss of energy can be related to hormone imbalance. My question: "Why is the government consistently threatening to take away our bio-identical hormones which can HELP us at the same time they are advocating anti-depressant medications which can hurt us? Researchers have discovered that over 69% of people taking anti-depressants do NOT actually have depression and are needlessly accepting the negative side effects.

Do SSRI's cause sexual dysfunction?
 
08:00
Thanks to Vlogbrothers for their sponsorship of this video!! Many of you have asked me about SSRI's or SNRI's and sexual dysfunction. I know that this is a concern for many people because sex is normal part of life for many of us. I broke this video down into a conversation about 3 main neurotransmitters that are believed to be involved in sexual dysfunction. They are: serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Each of these neurotransmitters could in some way play a role in our ability to be interested in sex, be able to have sex, or our ability to achieve an orgasm. Obviously everyone's experience with medication is going to be different, but I hope that this video helps explain why sexual dysfunction happens on some medication and what questions you should ask your doctor when talking about medication or starting a new one. xox WEBSITE http://www.katimorton.com TWITTER http://www.twitter.com/katimorton FACEBOOK http://www.facebook.com/katimorton1 TUMBLR http://www.katimorton.tumblr.com PINTEREST http://www.pinterest.com/katimorton1 HELP!

Sexual dysfunction with Antidepressants - Conversations with Prof Anita Clayton -

Prof. Anita Clayton’s clinical practice and research interests focus on women’s mental health and sexual dysfunctions. "Whether sexual dysfunction occurs as a result of depression or antidepressant therapy; you see a diminished quality of life in individuals affected, you see an impact on their relationships and as a result you see problems with maintaining adherence with their antidepressant treatment.” A cross-sectional study done in a 1000 Primary Care Doctors in U.S where 70% of patients wanted to participate in the study found - “SSRI’s have a class effect in terms of negative effects on sexual functioning; whereas drugs that work by different mechanisms of action are more likely to have less negative effects on sexual functioning”

Medications for Depression & Bipolar | Robert D. McMullen, MD
 
08:44
Robert D. McMullen, MD about Medications for Depression & Bipolar http://tmsbraincare.com/medications-bipolar-depression-hd-video/ Medications for treatment of Depression & Bipolar disorders Major depressive disorder is also known as major depression, clinical depression, or unipolar depression. The term unipolar refers to the presence of one pole, or one extreme of mood- depressed mood. This may be compared with bipolar depression which has the two poles of depressed mood and mania (i.e., euphoria, heightened emotion and activity). Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) causes serious shifts in mood, energy, thinking, and behavior—from the highs of mania on one extreme, to the lows of depression on the other These are of 2 types • Bipolar I disorder involves periods of severe mood episodes from mania to depression. The highs may even require hospitalization of the person. • Bipolar II disorder is a milder form of mood elevation, involving milder episodes of hypomania that alternate with periods of severe depression The depression that people with bipolar disorder experience is generally of a melancholic or psychotic type and therefore more biological in its nature. The depression found in these bipolar patients can be difficult to treat than unipolar depression as the antidepressants can cause them to have greater mood swings. These patients need to be on mood-stabilizing drugs. The antidepressants alone can actually increase the manic episodes and worsen the disorder. Antidepressants: divided into three main classes: • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) - were developed in the 1980's and are the most common prescribed today. They are sold under brand names such as Prozac, Paxil, Prozac, Luvox, Zoloft, Celexa • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) There are three types of MAOIs, phenelzine,(Nardil) isocarboxazid and tranylcypromine, ( Parnate) and moclobemide.) • Tricyclic drugs (TCAs). (sold as Amitriptyline, Imipramine) For effective control and to limit the side effects a combination can be used such as Wellbutrin (or bupropion). Mechanisms of action are different hence lower doses of both help control side effects. The combination of Zoloft and wellbutruim earned the popular name Welloft. The MAO inhibitors are more effective than the SSRI drugs. But can cause severe weight gain and therefore patients need to work on diet control, else the spike in blood pressure can be dangerous. They are contraindicated with drugs that work on serotonin. Lamictal (or Lamotrigine) was FDA approved for treating depression in 2003.The main advantage being, no sexual dysfunction, no sexual side effects and no weight gain. There is no sedative effect and dosage is generally much less than used for seizures. If any of the above mentioned combinations are ineffective in controlling depression, the thyroid hormone replacement drug Cytopan or Cytomel or Synthroid can be added to any of the above drug. Atypical anti-psychotics such as low doses of Zyprexa, or Abilify, or Seroquel, and the latest Quetiapine can also be prescribed. 150 mg of Lithium, normally prescribe for Bipolar at much higher doses, can be used safely without having to get regular blood checks.

Get More "Feel Good" Today!  How To Increase Dopamine
 
03:59
Who Doesn't Want To Feel Good? To get more "feel good" in your day, increase your dopamine! In the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter - a chemical messenger released by neurons (nerve cells) to send signals to other nerve cells. The brain includes several distinct dopamine pathways, one of which plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior. Dopamine itself is used as precursor in the synthesis of the neurotransmitters (and hormones) norepinephrine and epinephrine. Deficiency in any required amino acid or cofactor can impair the synthesis of dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine, leading to the symptoms of dopamine deficiency listed below. What happens when you are deficient in dopamine or any other hormone? Hormone deficiencies are easily seen in our day to day lives. The list is long and mainly specific to each part of the endocrine system, but most symptoms revolve around weight gain, fatigue, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction and heart disease. Because hormones play a crucial role in all bodily functions, we are not performing at our best unless they are at optimum levels. When a person is deficient in dopamine, they often experience the following common symptoms: • Fatigue • Low mood • Grumpy and irritable • Unfocused • Trouble staying on task • Lack of motivation • Low overall sense of well being If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it's because most of us have had them at one point in time or still experience them every day. For most people this feeling is often felt in the morning when we first wake up. Once we have breakfast and some form of stimulant (sugar, coffee, and juice) our mood brightens up and we feel like we can take on the day ahead. For some, a dopamine release is not easily achieved without medication. Many individuals with ADHD respond well to stimulants such as amphetamines or caffeine. Others with mild or seasonal depression take antidepressants like Wellbutrin, an NDRI (Norepinephrine Dopamine Reuptake Inhibitor) to help raise levels of dopamine. Many people find the reward center of the brain is activated with addicting behaviors or substances. Depending on the method used to increase dopamine, you can be helping or harming your body in both the short and long term. To live a long and prosperous life, the best thing you can do is become educated in the ways to naturally restore your vitality and optimize your physical body. If you want to naturally raise levels of dopamine, here are some tips and things you can do: • Get regular exercise. This releases both endorphins and dopamine. • Your favorite music often brings back happy memories. • Supplements: Selenium, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Fish oil, Omega-3s, Tyrosine. • Good nutrition; specifically brain building foods that contain fatty acids like Avocados. • SEX! Yes, a little time between the sheets with your significant other is a sure way to increase dopamine!

Side effects of hormonal medications - Dr. Mahesh DM
 
02:33
Hormonal medicines can result in some side effects which result in loss of appetite, nausea and in turn resulting in some patient’s weight loss also. One of the important medicines used is GLT-1 analogues. They can cause nausea, weight loss, loss of appetite, and also weight loss and some patients there can be only weight loss without any nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite. There can be other pills like OCP’s causing nausea, vomiting and also loss of appetite and in turn prevent weight loss or cause weight loss. So there hormonal pills are not the main reason why we develop these side effects. It is r elated to the fact that some of the medicines are no tolerated by us. If some medicines are used commonly they cause nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite. But hormonal tablets can have some side effects which are part and parcel of any medicine. So we have to understand and use them accordingly. Sometimes just reducing the hose of the hormonal pill can actually help to tide over these side effects and help tide over these effects. So consult your doctor and note down the side effects before you reduce or stop these medicines.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Serotonin, or 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), is a neurotransmitter involved in many brain and body functions and is commonly known as the substance of well-being and happiness. Serotonin is produced in specialized neurons found mostly in the Raphe nuclei located along the midline of the brainstem. The axons of these neurons form extensive serotonergic pathways that reach almost every part of the central nervous system, including the cerebellum and the spinal cord. This is why it’s not surprising that serotonin is implicated in a vast array of brain functions, including sleep and wake cycle, appetite, mood regulation, memory and learning, temperature control, … among others. Serotonin is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan and is stored in small vesicles within the nerve terminal. When a serotonergic neuron is stimulated, serotonin is released into the synaptic cleft where it binds to and activates serotonin-receptors on the postsynaptic neuron. Serotonin action is then TERMINATED via removal of its molecules from the synaptic space. This is accomplished through a special protein called serotonin-transporter. Low levels of serotonin in the brain have been associated with depressive disorders and current treatments for depression aim to increase these levels. The most commonly prescribed medications, called “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors”, or SSRIs, act by blocking serotonin reuptake by the transmitting neurons. This results in elevated levels of serotonin in the synaptic space and its prolonged action on the receiving neuron. The SSRIs have developed into the drugs of choice because they produce fewer side effects thanks to their selective action on serotonin alone and no other neurotransmitters. Unfortunately, because serotonin is involved in a wide range of brain functions, the side effects remain significant and may progress to a potentially dangerous condition known as "serotonin syndrome". This syndrome is generally caused by a combination of two or more drugs used to raise the serotonin levels in the brain. If the medications are not discontinued, the condition may become fatal. Nonpharmacologic methods of raising brain serotonin have shown promising results in recent studies. It has been suggested that positive mood induction, either self-induced or due to psychotherapy, correlates with INCREASED serotonin synthesis in the brain. The interaction between serotonin synthesis and mood may therefore be 2-way, with serotonin influencing mood and mood influencing serotonin. Other methods include exposure to bright light and tryptophan-rich diets. To note, however, that serotonin-rich food such as bananas would NOT work because serotonin, unlike tryptophan, can NOT cross the blood brain barrier. Finally, although it sounds like a cliché, physical exercise maybe the most effective and safest way of improving mood. Several studies suggest that serotonin levels are increased with vigorous physical activity and that these elevated levels are maintained for several days after the exercise.

Antidepressants Didn't Work — Hormone Pellets Did
 
01:47
https://www.biobalancehealth.com/testimonials/ Kimberly, a 53 year old bioidentical hormone pellet patient, talks about her ineffective treatment for depression with antidepressants and how she finally received relief with treatment from Dr. Kathy Maupin of BioBalance Health in St. Louis, Missouri. I was having a lot of problems with depression and low libido. I had also noticed, almost overnight, that my skin was starting to sag particularly in my legs. I had gone to my regular physician and we tried antidepressants, which I was strongly against. We tried the lowest dosage and then we had to keep working up, up, up, and it wasn't helping at all. Finally she said that she knew of a doctor, by the name of Dr. Kathy Maupin, that was out of St. Louis and that I might want to give her a try. I met with Dr. Maupin and told her all the problems I was having. My husband came with me. After listening to me she was confident she could help me. I went and had the pellets that same day after I spoke with her. I couldn't believe it. She said, "Give it a few weeks." I noticed a huge difference with almost 2 weeks instantly. Not only did I feel within 2 weeks like a whole new person, the crying quit, the libido was back, and almost overnight my skin was taut again. I couldn't believe that. I thought, how could all of this happen to you by not having your hormones in balance? I soon learned it all works in harmony together. I did a lot of research reading about the pellets and stuff after I got them and saw what all they could do and it was amazing.

🔋 3 Clinically Proven Herbs That’ll Instantly Increase Your Dopamine & Energy Levels
 
06:51
An “all-in-one” formula for instantly increasing your energy levels and improving memory: 👉 http://drsam.co/yt/MoreEnergy Or you can watch this video: http://drsam.co/yt/SleepLessAndMoreEnergy References - J Altern Complement Med. 2011 Jul;17(7):635-7. - Unpublished data on file. Frutarom 2015. - J Physiol Anthropol. 2012 Oct 29;31(1):28. - Milgram NW, Callahan H, Siwak C Adrafinil: A Novel Vigilance Promoting Agent . CNS Drug Rev. (2006) - Brain Res. 2007 Oct 10;1173:117-25. - Biol Psychiatry. 2012 Feb 15;71(4):294-300. - http://www.neuravena.com/science ======================================= 🛏️ How To Sleep Less, Have More Energy & Live Longer ======================================= I mention this because today I’m going to reveal my 3 favorite, clinically proven herbs that will instantly increase your dopamine levels and thus, improve your energy, mood and desire. Now, many people know Dopamine as a “feel good chemical”. More specifically, Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and cognition. Dopamine is involved in motivation, addiction, attention, lust, desire and happiness. But the problem here is that as great as you feel with the increase in dopamine, the LESS sensitive your dopamine receptors become and thus, you need MORE “stimulation” to get the same “happiness” or “high”. Thus, one reason for “addiction”. Unfortunately, dopamine levels decline as we age resulting in decreased mental performance, depression, "drive", energy levels, happiness, Parkinson's disease and accelerated brain aging. Now, one of the best ways to improve this is to take herbs which naturally increase both dopamine levels AND dopamine receptor sensitivity. When these 3 clinically proven herbs are combined in the correct dosage and extract, you’ll have: elevated brain dopamine levels 74% improvement in mental acuity. 57% improvement in mental processing time and speed increase alpha-brain waves and electrical brain activity improved mood and better relaxation. My Three Favorite Herbal Extracts Okay, so let’s get started. Velvet Bean extract (Mucuna pruriens) (20% catecholamines; 15% L-dopa extract) While L-DOPA can cross the blood-brain barrier, dopamine cannot, making L-DOPA the preferred compound to elevate brain dopamine levels. Neuravena® Wild Green Oat extract inhibits the monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) enzyme. This is important, because age-related decline in dopamine is largely caused by rising levels of MAO-B. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, there was a 74% improvement on a standard test of mental acuity 6 and 57% improvement in mental processing time and speed Neuravena is the only clinically proven form of wild green oat extract shown to acutely improve attention and concentration as well as the ability to maintain task focus in older adults. It's also been proven to enhance cerebral vasodilation, which can help improve cognition and reduce the formation of plaque in the brain. Great Tea Extract / L-Theanine Great tea extract has small amounts of an amino acid called L-Theanine. You’ll need to drink a LOT of green tea to get the clinical benefits of L-Theanine, so that’s why I just recommend taking L-Theanine by itself. Now, L-Theanine produces calming effects in the brain by increasing levels of serotonin and dopamine, and blocking the binding of L-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors.25-31 This allows L-theanine to cross the blood-brain barrier and increase dopamine levels in your brain. The calming, mood-enhancing effect is achieved by helping to increase alpha-brain waves, electrical brain activity commonly present when you are very relaxed, literally putting you in a better mood.30 Now, even though you are relaxed, your energy levels are higher. Additionally, It has anti-depressant and anti-anxiety effects, reduces mental and physical stress, and leads to improvements in learning and memory in humans and animals. The Best Combination That’s Clinically Proven However, the good news is that if you want to increase your energy levels, mood, cognition, memory and physical stamina by optimizing your youthful hormones and neurotransmitters such as dopamine, stress hormones, ATP, and mitochondria, I suggest using one of my favorite all-natural solutions called Body-Brain Energy. Now, I recommend Body-Brain Energy because it already combines these 3 ingredients with other, clinically proven ingredients…. at the correct extract AND dosage amount. ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

2-Minute Neuroscience: Oxytocin
 
02:00
Oxytocin is a peptide hormone and neuropeptide that is thought to have a variety of effects ranging from increasing uterine contractions during labor to influencing social interactions. In this video, I discuss where in the brain oxytocin is synthesized and the hypothesized effects of oxytocin. TRANSCRIPT: Welcome to 2 minute neuroscience, where I explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this installment I will discuss oxytocin. Oxytocin is a peptide hormone and a neuropeptide, which is a name for a peptide that can also act as a neurotransmitter. Oxytocin is primarily produced in the hypothalamus and transported through axons to the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland. From there it can be secreted into the bloodstream of the body. Although there are a number of effects linked to this peripherally-acting oxytocin, the best understood effects have to do with childbirth and breastfeeding. Oxytocin is involved with increasing uterine contractions during labor and with the milk let-down reflex, which causes milk to be released during breastfeeding. There is also evidence, however, that some oxytocin-containing neurons project to other areas of the central nervous system including the hippocampus, cerebral cortex, brainstem, amygdala, and spinal cord. The effects of this centrally-released oxytocin are not as clearly understood. Some research suggests it is involved with trust, empathy, and social bonding. These findings have caused some to call oxytocin the trust hormone, the love hormone, or even the cuddle hormone. Others have argued, however, that oxytocin’s effects on the brain are not so clear-cut. Some researchers have found oxytocin to be associated with negative emotions and aggression, and some of the research supporting oxytocin’s function as a love or trust hormone has been criticized for methodological problems. Other researchers have hypothesized that oxytocin might be involved in promoting responsiveness to social cues in general, whether they be positive or negative. Thus, at this point there is no consensus on the effects of oxytocin’s actions on behavior. It is likely, however, that its effects on behavior are far more complex than a simple designation like the “love hormone” would suggest. REFERENCES: Veenema AH, Neumann ID.

SKIP AHEAD: 2:20 – Mechanism of Antidepressants 3:16 – General Principles of Antidepressant Use: Suicide, Mania & Serotonin Syndrome 7:51 – Tricyclic Antidepressants 9:10 – TCA Side Effects 10:40 – SSRIs 11:47 – SSRI Side Effects 13:01 - SNRIs 13:33 – Atypicals: Bupropion, Mirtazapine & Trazadone Antidepressant mechanism - One hypothesis for the pathophysiology of depression is that it is due to low levels of monoamine neurotransmitters (mainly serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine). That is why antidepressants aim to increase the levels of these neurotransmitters in the synaptic cleft. They do this by slowing the reuptake of the neurotransmitters so that they stay in the cleft longer and interact with post synaptic receptors more often. The first drugs in this group were non-specific and increased all of the monoamines, which lead to lots of side effects and safety issues related to toxicity. Newer antidepressants are more selective and mostly only effect 1 or 2 monoamines. General principles: Unfortunately, antidepressants take at least a month to start working. Good patient education about the delayed onset of effect and close monitoring of the patient during this initial period is extremely important. Patients can become hopeless if they expect the drug to start working right away. This may be one reason why antidepressants are associated with suicide, especially in patients 25 years old and younger. Another proposed mechanism is that a depressed person may have the energy to carry out their suicide once the medications start to work. There is now a black box warning for suicide on antidepressants. Some psychiatrists argue that they don’t actually see this association with suicide in clinical practice, and that the thing that really increases the risk for suicide is not treating a depressed person with the proper medications. However, it is still standard practice to have a close follow up with patients you are starting on antidepressants. Usually this will involve a follow up visit about 2 weeks after the medication is started. At this visit the drug will not have started working yet so you can’t evaluate efficacy, but you can monitor for side effects like suicidality. Another serious side effect you have to be on the lookout for soon after initiating treatment is mania. If a bipolar individual is incorrectly diagnosed as having depression, an antidepressant may induce a manic episode. Another very serious side effect that has to be considered for antidepressants is Serotonin Syndrome. This usually occurs when you combined multiple antidepressants at the same time or combine an antidepressant with another medication that increases serotonin such as dextromethorphan or an opioid. It presents with tremor, diaphoresis, tachycardia, flushing and hypertension. If not corrected it can progress to delirium, AMS and death. Treatment includes medication cessation and the use of Cyproheptadine (a serotonin antagonist). In order to prevent this from happening you should have about a month “Wash Out” period when you are switching between antidepressants. So you taper the 1st medication down and then stop it, give the patient at least a month with no antidepressant and then start adding the new medication slowly. Most side effects begin immediately after starting the medication, but diminish over the course of a month. This is another reason why patient compliance is poor with these meds. It makes them sick and the drug doesn’t work during the first few weeks. However, if they can stick with it the medications will likely start working and the side effects will diminish over time. A principle that applies to all of the antidepressants is “start low and go slow.” This means that you start with a lower dose and slowly increase it in order to decrease side effects and increase patient compliance. The dose you start the patient on may not even be at a therapeutic level, but every month or so you can increase the dose a bit.

Zoloft Addiction and Rehabilitation | Drug Knowledge | Detox to Rehab
 
01:48
As an antidepressant prescription, Zoloft raises serotonin levels in the brain by putting stress on the glands that regulate the hormone's release. Serotonin is broken down by the liver and cleansed from the body by the kidneys, but putting too much stress on these organs can cause them to shut down or poison the blood, ultimately poisoning the brain. Side effects of Zoloft include sleepiness, nervousness, dizziness, diarrhea, insomnia, changes in appetite, nausea, headaches, constipation, dry mouth, and weight loss. These are just the side effects of Zoloft, not even addiction to Zoloft. Suddenly stopping Zoloft could be fatal, so medically assisted detox is highly recommended.

What medications cause hair loss? - Dr. K Prapanna Arya
 
02:54
Certain drugs can contribute to excess hair growth, changed in the hair color, or texture of hair loss. Drugs cause hair loss by interfering with the normal cycle of scalp hair growth. During the anagen phase, which lasts for about 2 to 6 years the hair grows to the telogen phase, which lasts about 3 months, the hair rests. At the end of every telogen phase, the hair falls down and there is replacement of new hair. Medications can lead to 2 types of hair loss. One is called as telogen effluvium and second is called as Anagen effluvium. Telogen effluvium is the most common form of drug induced hair loss. It usually appears within 2 to 4 months after taking the drug. This condition causes the hair follicles to go onto their resting phase, that is telogen and follow too early. People with the telogen effluvium usefully shed between 100 to 150 hairs per day. Aanagen effluvium is the type of hair loss that occurs in the anagen phase of the hair cycle when the hairs are actively growing. It permits the matrix cells which produces new hair from dividing normally. That type of hair loss occurs within the first two days to weeks after taking the medication. It is most common in people who are taking chemotherapy drugs for cancer and is often severe in most of the people who loose most of all of their hair on the head as well as their eye brows, eyelashes and other body hair. The severity of the drug induced hair loss depends on the severity of the drug and the dose as well as the sensitivity to the drug. What are the type of drugs causing this hair loss? There are different types of drugs which are thought to cause hair loss when taken for a prolonged period, this includes active medications such as Vitamin A , retinoids, antibiotics or antifungal drugs, anti-depressants and birth control pills, anticlotting drugs, cholesterol lowering drugs, drugs that stimulate the immune system, drugs that treat breast cancer and other cancers, epileptic drugs that is anticonvulsants, high blood pressure medications such as antihypertensive such as Beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, and diuretics, Hormone replacement therapies, Non-Steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, Parkinson’s disease drugs or medications, thyroid mediations and weight loss drugs.
New Depression Treatment | July 2016

Robert D. McMullen, MD 10 min Video About New Depression Treatment. want to know about new Depression treatments visit our website http://tmsbraincare.com/new-depression-treatment/ or visit our office: TMS BrainCare #2, 171 W 79th St, New York, NY 10024 tmsbraincare.com (212) 362-9635 Transcript ======================================================================== …I’m a psychiatrist and I specialize in treatment-resistant depression. I went to medical school at Georgetown University and I did my residency in Psychiatry at Columbia Presbyterian. For 36 years, I've been specializing mainly in the treatment of difficult psychiatric cases, depression as well as other illnesses and especially treatment-resistant depression. In the last 5 years, I have used a new modality called TMS (trans-cranial magnetic stimulation) and I'll get back to this but I want to mention a few other things that are new that help treatment-resistant depression. One thing is very low dose Lithium like only 150 milligrams a day whereas somebody with manic depression might be on 1200 and to our surprise this low dose often helps people with depression in a week or two. I have 36 people I’ve collected in the last two years that had a significant antidepressant effect within two weeks. Another thing that is somewhat new is taking vitamin D. We make this (it’s a hormone it’s not actually a vitamin, it’s a steroid hormone)… we make this in our skin, at least we make one step of making it, when the sun hits the skin. So all of us are low on this since we no longer are farmers, we are [Inaudible 01:55] and we work in offices and we [Inaudible 01:58] and people should take about 5000 IU once a day and there’s a small but significant proportion of people that they are being low on vitamin D is contributing to their depression. Another new modality is trans-cranial direct-current stimulation- that's a long name, but it means running a little electricity from say the shoulder over to the left forehead and this small amount of electricity has an effect on the brain which is been shown to help depression and I have used it in dozens and dozens of people and sometimes it has been successful. It’s not as successful as the TMS. The TMS is really a revolution in psychiatry. The first machine got FDA approved in 2008 and I obtained the machine in 2010. What it consists of is a giant magnet and the magnet is caused by running electricity through a copper coil and your pulse, enormous amount of electricity through this coil and that causes the magnet to go briefly on and briefly off. So if you put this magnet over the brain you can either stimulate a certain area of the brain, usually when you stimulate the left fore head, which is the left dorso-lateral prefrontal cortex technically or we do an inhibitory treatment on the right side of the brain and if it’s excitatory, it makes the neurons easier to discharge, if it's inhibitory it calms down the neurons and make them less easy to discharge and somehow this causes the depression to remit over about 2 or 3 weeks you'll see good benefits and then by 6 weeks you hope that at least half the people that their depression would be completely gone.

Top 7 Essential Oils to Balance Hormones Naturally
 
03:58
Most of us aren’t high wire performers because we lack balance. And perhaps there’s a great deal of fear. Our internal wiring also appreciates balance. When hormones are firing improperly, mood swings may be in full bloom in men and women. Other symptoms may be fatigue, weight gain, fertility problems, depression and insomnia. Left untreated, hormonal imbalances might trigger something more serious. In today’s video, we will explore the medicinal benefits of 7 essential oils and how they can equalize those hormones. Lavender Oil The distinct scent of lavender extract has an ability to balance hormones. Also, women with PMS may find relief from feelings of stress and discomfort. Thyme Oil Studies have shown that thyme essential oil positively affects progesterone, by improving progesterone production. Low levels of this hormone lead to depression, infertility, and PCOS. Basil Oil The function of the adrenal glands is to cope with daily stress, by producing cortisol. This essential oil boosts the body’s natural response to both physical and emotional stress. Researchers have found that the daily use of basil extracts reduce the general stress symptoms, such as exhaustion, sleep issues, and forgetfulness. Clary Sage Oil A study conducted in 2014 showed that the inhalation of clary sage oil reduces the levels of cortisol by 36%, and increases the thyroid hormone levels. According to researchers “clary sage oil had a statistically significant effect on lowering cortisol and had an anti-depressant effect improving mood.” Lemongrass Oil The ovaries produce estrogen and progesterone, and when these hormones are imbalanced, the person experiences infertility, PMS, and difficult or irregular menstrual cycles. According to Dutch researchers, the compounds in lemon peels, which are also found in this oil, boost liver functions, as well as the production of hormones, by reducing liver cholesterol. Sandalwood Oil It balances testosterone in women and man and improves the levels of hormones in the body. It also acts as a powerful natural aphrodisiac which enhances libido. Myrtle Oil About 20 million Americans suffer from some kind of thyroid disease, and even 60% of them are not aware of it. The thyroid gland regulates numerous processes in the body, as well as the metabolism and the body’s temperature. This essential oil stimulates the thyroid activity, and balances and normalizes the function of the ovaries and the balance of hormones. Here is how to use them in order to treat hormonal imbalance: - You should mix some coconut oil with some of these essential oils and rub it on different areas of the body, to help their absorption through the skin. - To improve hormone balance, mix 2 drops of clary sage oil with 2 drops of lavender oil and create a powerful aromatherapy formula. - Soak in a bath with some warm water, 2 drops of lavender, and 3 drops of clary sage. This will soothe PMS symptoms. ----------------------------------------- Disclaimer: The materials and the information contained on Natural Cures channel are provided for general and educational purposes only and do not constitute any legal, medical or other professional advice on any subject matter.

There are certain drug combinations you should be cautious of; here are the most common. Aspirin should not be combined with blood thinners because, although it relieves pain, it also thins the blood, so the combination can lead to internal bleeding. Aspirin can also decrease the effectiveness of gout medications and increase the strength of some diabetes medications. When taking certain antibiotics you should know that antacids and other products containing calcium may decrease the effectiveness of your antibiotic. Also, some antibiotics can greatly decrease the effectiveness of birth control and blood thinners. If you're on antidepressants, don't mix newer antidepressants such as fluoxetine and paroxetine with older mood-lifters such as phenelzine, because it can increase blood pressure. Don't combine antidepressants with St. John's wort or migraine drugs because it can cause confusion, fever, high blood pressure, and tremors. Certain asthma medications, such as bronchodilators, should not be combined with antidepressant drugs or beta blockers, due to a risk of increased blood pressure and a loss of drug effectiveness. The effectiveness of diabetes medications such as glipizide and glyburide can be blocked by several drugs, including corticosteroids, hormones, diuretics, and antipsychotics. Other drugs that increase the effects of glipizide and glyburide, including blood thinners are: insulin, MAOIs, aspirin, and gout medicine. For heart medications, the common heart drug digoxin can lose effectiveness if combined with antacids. Their effects can be amplified by other drugs, including diazepam and antiarrhythmics. Nitrate heart drugs can trigger low blood pressure if taken with the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra, generally known as sildenafil. Also, the combination of the blood pressure medications, atenolol and reserpine can cause a slow heartbeat and lower than normal blood pressure. Please make sure your doctor and pharmacist are aware of all the medications you are taking, both prescription and over-the-counter. If you have any questions about the potential harmful drug combinations I spoke about, talk to your CVS pharmacist. We're here to help. Source: CVS Caremark Health Resources

This is What Happens To Your Body When you Walk 5, 30 and 60 Minutes
 
04:41
▶ Subscribe to the channel - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Do you know walking is one of the world's best medicine? It's one of the most overlooked activities that's extremely beneficial to your health. Today, there are so many means of transportation that have taken the place of walking — they allow us to take less and less steps each day, and that's not good. It's critical for us to walk more — those overlooked steps are essential for our overall health and wellness. Look, you should know that the body creates chemical changes the longer you walk — once you realize these benefits, you'll be inspired to walk more. The good thing is, there are a whole lot of opportunities for us to walk every single day — you can decide to walk to the grocery store instead of drive or walk to lunch instead of taking the wheels. Right now we're going to explore how walking for 5, 30 or even 60 minutes can transform your health and make you feel great. Sounds good? Let's get to it! What happens when you walk for: 1 to 5 Minutes The moment you step out of the door to take your first steps, your body will release energy-producing chemicals to fire you up for the walk. When you start walking, your heart rate will increase from 70 to 100 beats per minute — this beneficial change warms the muscles and boosts blood flow. You'll also find that stiffness reduces, and this is all thanks to the lubricating fluid that your joints produce— this will help you move more easily. At this point, your body starts to burn up to five calories per minute — fats and carbohydrates will be used as fuel to burn energy. 6 to 10 Minutes At this time period, your heartbeat goes all the way from 100 to 140 beats per minute. And you'll start burning up to six calories per minute. Right now, your blood pressure will spike up a little but still gets countered by the release of chemicals that expand blood vessels. This then supplies more blood and oxygen to working muscles. Look, As you walk more, your body, heart and cardiovascular system will have what it takes to maintain resiliency, and your blood pressure lowers in the long run. 11 to 20 Minutes Right now your body temperature increases and that's a good thing. Why? Well, it's primarily because you begin to sweat and the blood vessels near the skin expand to release heat. As your walk becomes more intense, you'll burn up to seven calories per minute and breathe deeper than before. At this point, two hormones, epinephrine and glucagon rise to fuel your muscles. For the most part, epinephrine is an adrenaline hormone that provides relief to asthma attacks and allergic reactions — it's actually sold in drug stores. The good news is, you can get it for free after a 20-minute walk! 21 to 45 Minutes This is the point where your body releases more tension and relaxes further. This typically happens as a result of the release of endorphins in your brain. The good thing is, you'll get to burn more fat at this stage and insulin levels drop significantly. This is great for people looking shed excess weight — so be sure to keep up if you're one of them! 45 to 60 Minutes At this point, you're exceeding all previous benefits for longer — boosting blood flow, burning more calories and oxygenating your body. It's also good to know that you're also fortifying your heart, losing unhealthy fat, strengthening your immune system, increasing Vitamin D levels (since you're in the sun) and feeling great. Moreover, studies have shown that walking is just as effective as antidepressants — it eases stress and anxiety. Who wouldn't want to experience these amazing benefits? The bottom line: Try as much as possible to walk more often — you can even turn it into a daily routine. Your body will feel great at the end of the day, and that's what matters. Happy walking!

Coming Off Antidepressants Can Hurt (2 Week Taper Update)
 
06:26
This video is for educational purposes only and is not intended to treat or diagnose. The opinions expressed are that of the individual in the video and nobody else. Please consult a health care professional for all mental and physical healthcare needs. I, Noah Thomas, have been legally prescribed antidepressants by a medical doctor for the treatment of diagnosed major depressive disorder. Please SHARE THIS VIDEO if you found it useful or if you know somebody who it might benefit. Thank you. MY STORY My name is Noah and on May 18 2011, I had a rare reaction to a vaccine called VIVITROL and consequently spiraled into a major, agitated, suicidal depression with depersonalization. I lost 25 lbs in 4 weeks and was in full panic or near panic for 8 weeks straight mixed with the darkest most painful depression I cold have ever imagined. I immediately could not work and had to move in with my parents who along with many siblings and friends had to watch me 24/7 as I was so suicidal. I was eventually hospitalized. Getting through each day seemed truly unbearable and I knew I would surely die. I have been put on many many different SSRI's SNRI's Tricyclics, Mood stabilizers, anti psychotics, holistic meds, acupuncture and even a form of shock therapy called RTMS. I barely saw any improvement in my condition for a full year. It was decided I had treatment resistant depression and I spent nearly every moment in tears. Weeks after starting my newest round of medications (Seroquel & Nortryptaline) as a last ditch effort, I had my blood drawn for possible hormone imbalances and my Testosterone levels came back 200 ng/Dl and 150 ng/Dl. The average 25 year old male has 750 ng/Dl. With this discovery I for the first time had any type of possible explanation as to why I was not getting better and why I might be so so sick. The symptoms of such Low T are very similar to those of major depression. I started Testosterone replacement therapy soon after and have been checking in with the world and documenting my experience with treatment as well as giving my insight and perspective on various topics of mental health. I am blessed to say that I have slowly, over the last 10 months, been improving and becoming more stable which I never thought to be possible. My low T manifested itself in the form of Major depression, anxiety, and depersonalization/ derealization for over a year. Gaining some mental stability back is nothing short of a miracle as I was near death for what felt like forever. I do not consider myself to be totally healed yet but I am closer now then ever before and aim to use what I have been through to help or at least offer support to others in need. I was able to come off of the Seroquel after getting more stable and have recently begun to taper off of Pamelor, my final antidepressant.

Enlarged breasts in men | gynecomastia - Symptoms and causes..
 
03:19
Enlarged breasts in men | gynecomastia - Symptoms and causes... Gynecomastia (guy-nuh-koh-MAS-tee-uh) is swelling of the breast tissue in boys or men, caused by an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly. Newborns, boys going through puberty and older men may develop gynecomastia as a result of normal changes in hormone levels, though other causes also exist. Generally, gynecomastia isn't a serious problem, but it can be tough to cope with the condition. Men and boys with gynecomastia sometimes have pain in their breasts and may feel embarrassed. Gynecomastia may go away on its own. If it persists, medication or surgery may help. Symptoms Signs and symptoms of gynecomastia include: Swollen breast gland tissue Breast tenderness When to see a doctor See your doctor if you have: Swelling Pain Tenderness Nipple discharge in one or both breasts Causes Gynecomastia is triggered by a decrease in the amount of the hormone testosterone compared with estrogen. The cause of this decrease can be conditions that block the effects of or reduce testosterone or a condition that increases your estrogen level. Several things can upset the hormone balance, including the following. Natural hormone changes The hormones testosterone and estrogen control the development and maintenance of sex characteristics in both men and women. Testosterone controls male traits, such as muscle mass and body hair. Estrogen controls female traits, including the growth of breasts. Most people think of estrogen as an exclusively female hormone, but men also produce it — though normally in small quantities. However, male estrogen levels that are too high or are out of balance with testosterone levels can cause gynecomastia. Gynecomastia in infants. More than half of male infants are born with enlarged breasts due to the effects of their mother's estrogen. Generally, the swollen breast tissue goes away within two to three weeks after birth. Gynecomastia during puberty. Gynecomastia caused by hormone changes during puberty is relatively common. In most cases, the swollen breast tissue will go away without treatment within six months to two years. Gynecomastia in men. The prevalence of gynecomastia peaks again between the ages of 50 and 69. At least 1 in 4 men in this age group are affected. Medications A number of medications can cause gynecomastia. These include: Anti-androgens used to treat prostate enlargement, prostate cancer and some other conditions. Examples include flutamide, finasteride (Proscar, Propecia) and spironolactone (Aldactone). Anabolic steroids and androgens. AIDS medications. Gynecomastia can develop in HIV-positive men who are receiving a treatment regimen called highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Efavirenz (Sustiva) is more commonly associated with gynecomastia than are other HIV medications. Anti-anxiety medications, such as diazepam (Valium). Tricyclic antidepressants. Antibiotics. Ulcer medications, such as cimetidine (Tagamet HB). Cancer treatment (chemotherapy). Heart medications, such as digoxin (Lanoxin) and calcium channel blockers. Gastric motility medications, such as metoclopramide (Reglan). Street drugs and alcohol Substances that can cause gynecomastia include: Alcohol Amphetamines Marijuana Heroin Methadone Health conditions Several health conditions can cause gynecomastia by affecting the normal balance of hormones. These include: Hypogonadism. Any of the conditions that interfere with normal testosterone production, such as Klinefelter's syndrome or pituitary insufficiency, can be associated with gynecomastia. Aging. Hormone changes that occur with normal aging can cause gynecomastia, especially in men who are overweight. Tumors. Some tumors, such as those involving the testes, adrenal glands or pituitary gland, can produce hormones that alter the male-female hormone balance. Hyperthyroidism. In this condition, the thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine. Kidney failure. About half the people being treated with regular hemodialysis experience gynecomastia due to hormonal changes. Liver failure and cirrhosis. Hormonal fluctuations related to liver problems as well as medications taken for cirrhosis are associated with gynecomastia. Malnutrition and starvation. When your body is deprived of adequate nutrition, testosterone levels drop, but estrogen levels remain constant, causing a hormonal imbalance. Gynecomastia can also occur once normal nutrition resumes. Herbal products Plant oils, such as tea tree or lavender, used in shampoos, soaps or lotions have been associated with gynecomastia. This is probably due to their weak estrogenic activity.
