The Long term effects of Xanax and other Anti-depressives.
It’s just plain sad to watch someone go through the downward spiral of depression. In fact it can be scary. You can’t help but watch how social media and the internet sent the news of Whitney Houston’s death through the airwaves so quickly. It was tweeted and posted on Facebook so quickly that you knew about it before you wanted to.
This is the era of instant news and how we all enjoy finding out and sharing great things. For this very reason I am here now writing this article.
I would like to discuss depression and how it’s treated and how it’s looked at. It is a real problem. When people’s minds are so stuck and clogged with harsh chemicals it’s no wonder they have a hard time functioning.
I’m talking about petro-synthetic chemicals getting into the brain and having a hard time getting out. It’s scary to think that there is so many people who have been prescribed medications for mood and the negative long term effects of these chemicals. Below is a list of the know side effects of the one Anti-depressive Xanax. These are from the http://www.drugs.com/sfx/xanax-side-effects.html. I find it interesting the on of the Xanax is Depression!
Percentage of 641 Xanax-Treated Panic Disorder Patients Reporting Events
Insomnia 29.5 Nausea/Vomiting 16.5
Light-headedness 19.3 Diarrhea 13.6
Abnormal involuntary movement 17.3 Decreased salivation 10.6
Headache 17.0 Metabolic-Nutritional
Muscular twitching 6.9 Weight loss 13.3
Impaired coordination 6.6 Decreased appetite 12.8
Muscle tone disorders 5.9
Weakness 5.8 Dermatological
Psychiatric Sweating 14.4
Fatigue and Tiredness 18.4 Cardiovascular
Irritability 10.5 Tachycardia 12.2
Cognitive disorder 10.3
Memory impairment 5.5 Special Senses
Depression 5.1 Blurred vision 10.0
Confusional state 5.0
From the studies cited, it has not been determined whether these symptoms are clearly related to the dose and duration of therapy with Xanax in patients with panic disorder. There have also been reports of withdrawal seizures upon rapid decrease or abrupt discontinuation of Xanax Tablets.
The last paragraph of the Article mentions that Xanax has also caused withdrawal seizures upon discontinuation that is abrupt of the tablets. There is no telling what other combinations of alcohol or drugs that when combined with Xanax could have been negative.
It just breaks my heart that talented people like Whitney Houston must feel tremendous pressures that require them to use some sort of substance to keep it together. Alcohol alone is such a powerful drug that by itself I have been people really damage their lives. In cars with friends, behind a bottle and worse. I feel for anyone who has been involved with using drugs or alcohol to self-medicate depression or other reasons.
I hope that Whitney’s family, especially her daughter can make it through this extremely difficult time. I only wish Whitney had heard of Protandim before this tragic event. Perhaps then she could have lifted the depression that she was taking the Xanax for. It may never be told exactly what the truth was that caused the death of this great performer. I wish her family all the best.
I wish more people knew about Protandim. It is changing people’s lives daily and it is exciting to see people get help. Protandim has been studied for the treatment of Oxidative Stress, the damaged caused by Free Radicals that build up as the exhaust from our everyday normal metabolism. We take antioxidants to combat these Free radicals but the problem is that we can never catch up with the amount we produce on a daily basis.
100000000000000000000000 that’s 10 x 23 power of free radicals produced on a daily basis. Taking antioxidant supplements and foods is kind of like taking a cupful of water onto a burning house. Protandim has the ability to turn on your body’s ability to make it’s own Antioxidant enzymes like Superoxidismutase which can gobble up 1 million free radicals per second and is not consumed in the chemical reaction so it continues to do so!
The free radical elimination and protection provided by something like Protandim that turns on 600 of your survival genes can help treat depression and other metal diseases. This short clip from an ABC primetime special mentions how oxidative stress can be treated with Protandim.
If you are suffering from Depression I urge you to call me and find out more information. I can help you in several ways but YOU have to help yourself. Don’t wait until someone finds you unconscious somewhere and it’s too late. Get Protandim today and help turn on your body’s own immunity.
