     All ssri 'si are a slow fuse LSD.


     That is why trying to withdraw induces dis-functionality. Read Tracy Ann Blake's book entitled:

    Prozac, Panacea or Pandora.

     May supply some answers.

    Pharmacology is a billion pound industry., whose only thought is profit.

    Withdraw very slowly.


     Essential oils are especially helpful  because  they are high in sesquiterones, which  cross the blood brain barrier and oxygenate the brain and clear out placques and toxins caused by these monster pills, which destroy countless  lives.


    Essential oils such as Frankinsence, Myrhh, Sandalwood. help to heal the brain from the stupification caused by these toxins. use a carrier oil, rub into back of neck and feet, no more than 50drops at any one time.


    Good Luck.
