Movies, delicious chocolate, spirits -Here to what methods resort Russians instead of antidepressants. On the one hand it's good that in our society it is not accepted to take a little something - to grab for tablets, and on the other ...
To date, we have many goodantidepressants: both strong and light. They quickly relieve tension, allow you to think in a stressful situation, direct your strength not to worry, but to solve problems, activate brain activity, eliminate the effects of stress, increase the general background of mood.
Such "first aid" is needed in criticalcircumstances, until they led our nervous system to exhaustion, and us, if not to suicide, then to a disorder of the psyche. Psychotropic medications are, of course, evil, but sometimes of two evils you have to choose the least (when the risk justifies the benefit). Those. Only in case of severe and prolonged depression.
So, choose the best antidepressant.
Until 2008 the most common wasFluoxetine. In capsules or in solution, he struggled with depression, a sense of fear, relieved tension and anxiety, effectively helped the mental patient (endogenous depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, alcoholism, anxiety disorders, phobias, autism, dysthymia, affective disorders, panic attacks, narcolepsy, catalepsy, sleep disorders, kleptomania, schizophrenia). With severe depression, relief came after 3 weeks of admission.
The title "the best antidepressant" Fluoxetinedeserved, because it was one of the first, and for today is the most studied psychotropic substance. But it has many side effects. One can be called even positive - weight loss (useful for patients with bulimia nervosa). Among other effects: headache, lethargy, asthenia, insomnia, anxiety, muscle twitching, thinking disorders, hallucinations, paranoia, psychosis, manifestations of suicidal tendencies, coma. And this is only from the side of the nervous system. Also, overdose and overlap with other medicines are dangerous without attentive familiarity with the instructions.
Do not take fluoxetine sick sugardiabetes, with hepatic and renal insufficiency, epilepsy, suicidal mood (no longer helps), atony of the bladder, zakratougolnoy glaucoma, hypertrophy of the prostate. It is not recommended to use after myocardial infarction, with cirrhosis of the liver. To children it is contraindicated, and pregnant women are appointed only as a last resort.
The truth about antidepressants
Fluoxetine as an active substance putthe beginning of a large pharmaceutical company for the production of psychotropic drugs: the first antidepressant in the modern understanding of this concept was the drug "Prozac" based on fluoxetine. Until today it is the best antidepressant for most consumers and the most common, but its actions have to wait a long time (after 2 weeks of reception). Later, at the beginning of the 21st century, other drugs with different chemical structures were developed.
But until now each of them causes a number of side effectseffects, including suicidal tendencies. Side effects are manifested in all, without exception, but in varying degrees and only the first time of taking (from 3 days to 2 weeks). In addition, pharmacists have found a way to correct side effects of psychotropic drugs with the help of other medications. Also there is a so-called withdrawal syndrome within 2 weeks after stopping the intake of antidepressants (this effect is not observed in all drugs, increases with prolonged reception).
Assortment and availability
The largest producers of antidepressantsbecame American companies. They created and widely used Zoloft drugs (from the same group as Prozac), Effexor, Luvox (from the Prozac group), Remeron. And if they are widely used in the US, in Russia psychiatrists (only they have the right to prescribe antidepressants) prefer to prescribe tranquilizers - with an even stronger effect on the human body. Antidepressants go to Russian clinics, but not to patients of psychiatrists who really need them.
The best of the best
Has pharmacists managed to reduce the number ofside effects and reduce the main danger when taking antidepressants - suicide? Hardly ever. But from the whole spectrum, you can choose a special, easy antidepressant (for example, Moclobemide, Coaxil, Trimipramine). Of really helping, well-studied (but at the same time and dangerous) is to allocate Imipramine, Ami- and Nortriptyline. Side effects in the production of new drugs could be reduced to dizziness, drowsiness, weight gain (Remeron), lethargy, pressure decrease.
All drugs are issued in the pharmacy only on prescriptiondoctor. Especially such as the most powerful antidepressant - Amitriptyline. To get one in Russia, you need to get on an appointment with a specialist at the psychoneurological dispensary.
Superstitions and inaccessibility of psychotropicdrugs have led to the fact that people widely use over-the-counter sedatives on a natural basis: Tenoten, Gelarium Hypericum, Fenebut, Novopassit, Valfen and others.
