Anti-depressant drugs are designed to block metabolism of the neurotransmitter serotonin. The result is increased serotonin. It appears this is a very dangerous approach. Excess of a neurotransmitter makes it excitotoxic.
This is significant because depression is an excitotoxic condition – it is the result of excess glutamate activation in the frontal cortex of the brain. Manipulating the level of serotonin does not address the underlying problem of excess glutamate. Instead it simply adds burden to the degenerative condition already underway. Recent research indicates that genetic variability in glutamate activity can make a significant number of people more sensitive to SSRI effects, including a much higher likelihood of expressing suicidal thoughts.
Serotonin receptors exist throughout the body. Altering the level of serotonin affects the entire body, not just the brain. Elevated serotonin is associated with the following :
- Altered REM sleep behavior
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Impulsive behavior
- Mental retardation
- Mood disorders (wild mood swings)
- Organic brain disease
- Reckless driving
- Substance abuse
Several things happen as the SSRI forces a constant excitotoxic state — serotonin receptors die off, serotonin levels become depleted, and a cascade of metabolic disruption takes place. The person becomes acutely worse.
There are hundreds of high-profile cases of murders, suicides, school shootings, incidents of workplace violence, road rage and other events – all tied to the use of prescription SSRI drugs. In the following video you will see the dangerous effects that Antidepressant Drugs have on our brain and behavior.
