Overdosing on antidepressant
With one in every 18 people suffering from depression, antidepressants are among the most widely prescribed medications today. Despite the prevalence of antidepressant use, cases of antidepressant overdoses are still the most difficult to prevent and determine because of the subtlety of its symptoms as in the case of the symptomology of fluoxetine overdose. This article tells you how to prevent overdosing on fluoxetine and how to deal with it should it happen to you.

Re: Overdosing on antidepressant
As more people are looking for natural remedies like St. john’s wart and a few other herbs to help with depression. It is important to understand that all natural doesn’t mean it is safe.
Mixing herbs and prescription drugs is becoming a big problem because some people view herbs like they would a vitamin. For example St. John’s wart… If someone is on an anti -depressant med and thinks that taking St. john’s wart also will help. It could cause a major issue such as a stroke.
It's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
