The ‘Overprescribed’ Podcast

Hello Friends,

This is a quick note to let you know that I was interviewed as a guest on Episode #9 of the podcast entitled “Overprescribed.” This excellent podcast takes a critical look at dangers of prescription medication and the increasingly common occurrence of polypharmacy. Here is a link that will take you directly to a recording of the show: 

In related news, a new study was just published that shows that a third of Americans are taking drugs that could be causing depression symptoms. These medications include:

  • Beta blockers
  • Birth control
  • Blood pressure medication
  • Antacids

According to an NPR article: “More than 200 common medications sold in the U.S. include depression as a potential side effect. Sometimes, the risk stems from taking several drugs at the same time. Now, a new study finds people who take these medicines are, in fact, more likely to be depressed.”

If you have any questions about the dangers of medication, or would like to work with me one-on-one to taper off your medications, please feel free to connect with me in one of the following ways:
