Millions of people are prescribed antidepressants.  Antidepressant withdrawal is an epidemic hiding in plain sight. Physicians have been prescribing antidepressants and other medications for mental health conditions for decades without any clear understanding as to how to safely discontinue them.  A medication “end game” has in fact never been part of the equation — something most patients do not know when they accept that first prescription. In addition to a stunning ethical failure, this lack of understanding represents a serious void in the current medication treatment model.
Psychiatry can do better–both for its patients and its prescribers by investing in new peer-reviewed research, changing the training of medical residents, and supporting patients on their withdrawal journeys via a more holistic approach.
Functional Psychiatry honors the connections that link mind and body and adheres to a model of personalized medicine based on biochemical individuality. Treatments are developed according to data derived from medical analysis and psychiatric assessment, treatments that address the underlying factors that contribute to pathology. Medications can be part of Functional Psychiatry protocols, but rarely as the sole modality.
In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will present a Functional Medicine model for the treatment of antidepressant withdrawal that prioritizes the repletion of nutritional deficiencies — which he has found to be most significant amongst patients who suffer more severe antidepressant withdrawal effects. By mitigating nutritional deficiencies identified through laboratory analysis, the implementation of a mindful, careful taper for antidepressant discontinuation becomes easier, providing new hope for patients.
This webinar will also serve as a preview for Dr. Greenblatt’s forthcoming book, Functional Medicine for Antidepressant Withdrawal and a new online course on antidepressant withdrawal (an update to our current course on managing medication side effects), which will both be available soon.
