The British Journal of Medicine reports that, “taking antidepressants while pregnant may be associated with an increased risk of gestational diabetes.” They noticed also, “the drugs venlafaxine (Effexor) and amitriptyline (Endep) were associated with the highest risk, especially when taken for a long time.”
I have reported previously that a personalize testing with an individual’s internal levels of neurotransmitters and neurological gene polymorphism testing is the best way to select medication and nutritional therapy for psychiatric issues. This new report adds to the list of cautions in prescribing antidepressant medications ‘blindly’ to people with psychiatric concerns. Better and more natural therapies are available for treating psychiatric issues. Therapies like “Limbic Arc” use personalized electromagnetic pulse waves to re-train brain function after brain injury. Cannabidiol is also an important option to consider when discussing with your doctor.
