The primary focus on serotonin deficiency as the main cause of depression has created treatment failure in many depressed and addicted patients. Other happy (excitatory) neurotransmitters are often ignored and some patients become more depressed when treated with medication. The classic depressive disorder patient who presents to Florida Detox ® is Susan, a 42-year-old professional female who seeks medical attention for depression from her local physician. Dr. Jones immediately assumes that she would benefit from a serotonin enhancer such as Paxil, Prozac, or Lexapro.  If indeed this patient suffers from low serotonin levels, her depression should respond within 2-4 weeks of treatment with the serotonin enhancer. Typically, prescribed a medication like Paxil (20 mg per day), she returns one month later insisting her depression is worse. Dr. Jones raises the Paxil to 40 mg per day. Frequently these patients are prescribed extremely high doses (60 mg to 80 mg per day) in the physician’s effort to conquer the problem. Unfortunately Dr. Jones disregards the continuous report from the patient that they are not feeling any better and may actually feel more depressed. What is the problem? If serotonin is unilaterally elevated above normal levels with the mediation, the brain will down regulate production of dopamine. This makes the patient with dopamine deficiency even more dopamine deficient. These patients will typically begin to self medicate with dopaminergic drugs like Percocet, Vicodin, or OxyContin to counteract the decreased production. All of these drugs produce increased dopamine activity in the brain’s pleasure center (nucleus accumbens). When these patients are accurately diagnosed with their genetic dopamine/glutamate deficiency and treated with appropriate dopamine/glutamate enhancing medication, they quickly experience cessation of their depression and lose the craving (psychological and biochemical) for drugs and alcohol. Treatment results in better relapse statistics with the application of this scientific approach to addiction and depression. Unilateral elevation of serotonin without dopamine level protection will result in markedly elevated prolactin levels. Prolactin will increase appetite and decrease sex drive.  When dopamine levels are enhanced to normal levels, sex drive will return as will better appetite control.

No salgas de casa sin tu tarjeta. Muchos tratamientos con esteroides se realizan en el consultorio del médico o en la clínica. Pero si estás bajo tratamiento con esteroides a largo plazo y tienes comprimidos para llevar a casa, es posible que el médico te dé una identificación o un brazalete de alerta médico de tratamiento con esteroides. Es importante que lleves esta tarjeta contigo (o que uses el brazalete de alerta médica) en todo momento. En caso de emergencia, la tarjeta o el brazalete informarán a los médicos que estás, o que has estado recientemente, en tratamiento con esteroides, lo cual puede modificar el tratamiento que te brinden.
