Side effects may be intrusive and overwhelming in one’s life, if antidepressant side effects are present in life, do not hesitate to contact a doctor or medical practitioner immediately for Trazodone side effects treatment. Individuals suffering with side effects may also consider an alternative to alleviate the burdens of side effects. When someone starts treatment with Trazodone, there have usually been no prior investigations to ident  why they may be depressed or suffering other symptoms.

Is the person really only low Serotonin and no other factors exist that are causing their depression? The person may have low thyroid, or a build-up of environmental neurotoxins including heavy metal toxins that ruin energy metabolism. Allergies to foods whereby internal swelling is slowing the metabolism could also be a causative factor. A depressed person may be suffering from a diet which is poorly lacking nutrients and cannot create what’s necessary for brain health. One might forget that the brain suffers the same insults from a poor diet which the body is subject to. And then some people may just feel as though they are immersed in a life which has become unfulfilling, and may need to have a healthy change of environment to make healthy changes.

We focus on discovering the medical causes which may be contributors to depression, anxiousness or insomnia. Our program uses natural substances that will stabilize neurochemistry, lab tests to ident  causes of original symptoms, cessation to eliminate neurotoxins accumulated from the environment, methods for medication tapering, IV amino treatments and other nutritional therapy, massage therapy, yoga, exercise, peer support, and other methods of Trazodone side effects help. We encourage you to call and speak to us, and get an understanding about the sort of help which is available.
