Drugs for Depression and What Pharmaceutical Companies Don"t Want You to Know

Are you suffering from depression and wondering about the quickest fix for it? Perhaps you're even already thinking about taking drugs for depression? Before you do, take the time to find out below a dirty little secret that the pharmaceutical companies don't want you knowing.
First off, just how do these antidepressants work to alleviate the symptoms of depression? Well in someone who is suffering from depression due to a chemical imbalance, antidepressants will attempt to normalize these chemicals.
There's a laundry list of drugs for depression on the market today, these include:
  • Abilify (ariprazole)
  • Adapin (doxepin)
  • Anafranil (clomipramine)
  • Celexa (citalopram)
  • Cymbalta (duloxetine)
  • Desyrel (trazodone)
  • Effexor XR (venlafaxine)
  • Endep (amitriptyline)
  • Lexapro (escitalopram)
  • Limbitrol (amitriptyline and chlordiazepoxide)
  • Marplan (isocarboxazid)
  • Nardil (phenelzine)
  • Norpramin (desipramine)
  • Pamelor (nortriptyline)
  • Parnate (tranylcypromine)
  • Paxil (paroxetine)
  • Prozac (fluoxetine)
  • Remeron (mirtazapine)
  • Sarafem (fluoxetine)
  • Symbyax (fluoxetine and olanzapine)
  • Tofranil (imipramine)
  • Triavil (perphenazine and amitriptyline)
  • Vivactil (protriptyline)
  • Wellbutrin (bupropion)
  • Zoloft (sertraline)
  • Zyban (bupropion)
I got a chance to sit down with 25 users of these antidepressants and ask them about their experience with these powerful drugs.
All of them experienced some form or another of the following side effects:
  • heart palpitations
  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • dry mouth, blurred vision
  • weight gain
  • sweating
  • confusion
  • nausea
  • rashes
  • constipation or diarrhea
  • anxiety
  • difficulty with urination
  • impotence or impaired erection in men
  • nightmares
Here's where it gets interesting and, what most of these pharmaceutical companies don't want you to know: Literally 90% of these depression sufferers admitted dependence on these powerful drugs, and eventual addiction to them.
