Should You Ditch Your Meds?

Erika Schwartz, M.D By Thursday, 12 November 2015 05:12 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Antihypertensive meds — and pretty much all meds — affect your mood. I spend most of my time when I start treating patients taking them off unnecessary and often dangerous drugs, and they think it’s miraculous how well they feel.

I think it’s sad they had to feel crummy for so long because their doctors just piled on one medication after another.

The first impulse of many conventional psychiatrists is to place female patients on antidepressants. These drugs often don’t work or are prescribed inappropriately.

No study has ever shown how these drugs are supposed to work, and no one knows exactly what they do.

Work with a responsible physician who doesn’t automatically push pills. See how you feel after you work with the doctor to stop taking the drugs you don’t need.

Many cannot be stopped abruptly, but once you are weaned off them, chances are you’ll feel better than ever.
