Prozac

Ok, you're depressed because you're sick all the time - in fact the sickness causes depression.  You surely need something for relief but please think it through carefully before embarking on a course of Prozac.
The Australians amongst you will know of the Port Philip Bay massacre - the killer was on Prozac at the time.  Michael Hutchence of INXS was also on Prozac at the time of his suicide.  Read the book reviews - I will add more on this topic as I find it.   In the meantime, please consider the natural alternatives - St John's Wort or even Kava.

The Prozac Alternative: Natural Relief from Depression With St. John's Wort, Kava, Ginkgo, 5-Htp, Homeopathy, and Other Alternative Therapies
The Prozac Alternative:
Natural Relief from Depression With St. John's Wort, Kava, Ginkgo, 5-Htp, Homeopathy, and Other Alternative Therapies
by Ran Knishinsky
Paperback (1998)

A comprehensive guide to the use of St. John's wort and other alternative therapies for treatment of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.
* Offers a comprehensive look at St. John's wort--the most significant
* natural remedy for depression--including its history in herbalism,
* current clinical uses, safety, and side effects.
* Discusses other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and
* 5-HTP as treatment options to depression.

In the early 1990's the sale of Prozac exceeded the sale of all other antidepressant drugs in both American and world markets. But today St. John's wort is recommended 3 to 1 over Prozac as a primary treatment for depression in European countries such as Germany--and its sales continue to skyrocket in the United States. Safe, all-natural, and less expensive than synthetic drugs, St. John's wort is the ideal natural therapy for many people's depression, anxiety, and other related mood disorders.

The Prozac Alternative offers a comprehensive look at St. John's wort, including its history in herbalism, current clinical uses, and safety and side effects, as well as how it compares with other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and 5-HTP. It also discusses other uses of these natural substances as treatment alternatives to Western medicine for a variety of medical conditions.

Paperback
Beyond Prozac:
Brain-Toxic Lifestyles,
Natural Antidotes & New Generation Antidepressants
by Michael J., M.D. Norden
Hardcover (1995)
Beyond Prozac: Brain-Toxic Lifestyles, Natural Antidotes & New Generation Antidepressants
Hardcover

The drug Prozac, while useful for millions, supplements a process that occurs naturally in all humans. In this book, Norden, a pioneer in developing applications for Prozac, looks at natural processes to supplement or replace the drug in the treatment of depression. By allowing for our natural cycles and mental needs, we may be able to increase our mental health naturally.
The author also looks into other new anti-depressants which may offer advantages over Prozac in the treatment of depression.
