Statistics show that psychotropic and anti-depressant drugs represent serious health risks and cause as many as 36,000 deaths per year in the U.S.
These drugs include SSRI like Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro and Prozac.
Statistics also show that most of the prescriptions for these drugs are written by internists (general practitioners), not psychiatrists.
Commonly prescribed psychotropic drugs like Seroquel and Zyprexa can also produces very serious and life-threatening conditions.
Furthermore, many of these drugs are prescribed for off-label uses.
Clinical trials have shown that 5-HTP, an inexpensive and safe amino acid (the precursor for serotonin) produces equal or better results and more quickly than any of the SSRIs with none of the dangerous side effects.
Dr. Michael Murray's superb book, "5-HTP: The Natural Way to Overcome Depression, Obesity, and Insomnia", provides much interesting information on this most important subject. Dr. Murray is a highly respected Naturopathic physician, author and educator.
Dr. Murray is also the author of the best-selling and highly acclaimed "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine" (2nd Ed., 1997).
