Are Your Meds a Prescription for Trouble?

Old Meds, New Warnings - Are You at Risk?

In This Issue:


Worth the Risk?

From the Editor

When I started researching topics for our newsletter this month I was amazed at how much had happened recently in Health News.

Although I had previously read that oftentimes when taking anti-depressants, people experience sexual side effects, such as a decreased libido, I was quite surprised to learn that there is a possible link between taking anti-depressants and not being about to fall in love, or to even want to.

Even more surprised that even some people who had been happily married for years reported that after using anti-depressants, they lost all feelings of love or attraction to their spouse!

Why would anyone want to risk sacrificing their ability to feel good emotions in hopes for a cure for their negative emotions?

Last week, another important piece of news made its way into the news regarding ADD and ADHD medications.

Acting on the widespread calls by the scientific and medical communities for research into the long-term effects of common medications, the FDA announced that they would undertake a study to determine what effect ADD/ADHD medications have on the cardiovascular system.

With certain cases of ADD medication already being linked to heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems, this is a huge step in finding out more about the true effects of amphetamine based ADD/ADHD medications!

I hope you find our October articles both interesting and informative. Remember, we want your feedback. So, send us an email at editor@nativeremedies.com and tell us what you think.

For the more than 121 million people worldwide suffering from depression, medicating their disease with prescription drugs has almost become commonplace. In fact, the American Journal of Health reports that there are more than 2.7 million prescriptions written for antidepressant drugs each year in the United States alone.

When depressed patient's consult with a doctor or mental health professional, oftentimes the first treatment option they are presented with is an anti-depressant medication. This is an alarming trend; one that is especially scary as the side effects of these medications become more apparent and publicly documented.See how anti-depressants can hurt your relationships >

"I have taken meds for 16 years and wonder if I will ever get my sex drive back. I am afraid to try something natural and get off the meds because I am worried that I might get worse. I have to be sure that it works." –Phil


Hi Phil,

To wean yourself off your current medication we recommend that you do so slowly as follows:

1. Take 15 - 20 drops of PureCalm three times daily to keep calm and to reduce the feelings of withdrawal.

2. Slowly reduce the dosage on the prescription medication every other day until it's reduced to zero. Try to do this over a two to three week period.

3. You should continue to take the PureCalm, but wait two days before starting on the MindSoothe.

4. Let the MindSoothe work its way to full effect, usually in about 3 - 5 weeks. At that point in time, you can try to stop the PureCalm and see if the MindSoothe alone has eliminated your symptoms.

NOTE: We highly recommend that you do not stop your medication until you've consulted with your regular doctor.

"My son is ADHD. We had to stop his Concerta because he had a congenital heart defect. Although his defect was cured with surgery at birth, the Concerta was found to affect his heart now, after having taken it for 4 years. Is Focus safe for use with children who have congenital/structural heart defects?"–Rose
