Antidepressant medications such as Celexa, Cymbalta, Effexor, Prozac, Wellbutrin, and Zoloft are used to treat a host of mental health conditions. Severe and chronic depression, anxiety and persistent panic attacks, bipolar disorder, and other conditions are commonly treated with medications that can alter brain function and in many cases can leave them dependent on the medications while experiencing worsening symptoms. By utilizing lab testing and diagnostic tools, Alternative to Meds Center discovers the root causes of these mental health conditions and treats those causes holistically, and using integrative techniques.

Both typical (First Generation) and atypical (Later Generation) antipsychotics are used to treat numerous mental health concerns including psychosis, schizophrenia, and many other conditions. The drugs come with a host of their own symptoms and side effects, and balancing the benefits of antipsychotic medications with the negatives can be a chore for physicians. Antipsychotics can create such a potent neuroadaptation in the brain, it can often become difficult to discern which are the symptoms versus results of the drug. For some individuals, tapering off their antipsychotic medications and utilizing natural alternatives to antipsychotic medications may offer the best benefit.
