When an individual is first prescribed to this medication, there has often been no prior investigative efforts put forth to find what is causing the individuals depression. Are they just low Serotonin and this is the only reason? What if their thyroid is low? What if they are suffering from food allergies which force internal swelling to occur that slows metabolism? An accumulation of environmental neurotoxins like heavy toxic metals which ruin energy metabolism can also play as a contributing factor. The individual may be eating a diet which is lacking nutrients so badly that they are unable to generate what they need to have a healthy brain. Or maybe the individual just feels totally immersed in a life unfulfilling to them, and they need a supportive environment in order to make changes that are healthy and positive.
