The Antidepressant Survival Program:
How to Beat the Side Effects and Enhance
the Benefits of Your Medication

Robert J. Hedaya

Synopsis

One of the world's leading psychopharmacologists, Robert J. Hedaya believes
that the treatment should not be worse than the disease, especially in the case of depression and other physical disorders often treated with antidepressants, such as bulimia, migraine headaches, and PMS. He believes he's found a solution for the 20 million Americans who take antidepressants and find the illness is no longer so much of a problem, but that its symptoms are replaced by debilitating side effects, such as weight gain, lethargy, and sexual dysfunction. Dr. Hedaya says there's no need to learn to live with these problems and has developed a plan to combat them using nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, and hormone supplementation that he says can actually enhance the effectiveness of many antidepressant medications. Where many doctors tell their patients to stop complaining about side effects and be thankful the depression has subsided, Hedaya believes in a holistic approach to treatment, one that fills the patient with vitality, improves self-esteem, keeps sexuality intact, and even helps bring more passion and spirituality to one's life.
