Magnesium and Anxiety and Adrenal Fatigue


About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain, electrolyte homeostasis, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention and treatment without the use of medicines. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage gated channels that modulate electrolytes and voltage in the brain, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other related variants, such as the MTHFR variants of the B vitamin methylation process and many others. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and new research and findings after treating over 4000 migraineurs world wide, all ages and both genders, she is now finishing the 2nd edition. The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraines, incorporating all there is to know and also hypotheses. It includes an academic research section with suggestions for further research. The book is full of citations to authenticate the statements she makes to be followed up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide". Due out in the summer of 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in NeuroEconomics at Claremont Graduate University, and fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers. For relaxation Dr. Stanton paints and photographs. Follow her on Twitter at: @MigraineBook

    I was gathering med prescription quarries to help my new primary care physician understand my needs with objective data, when I thought I saw you at Myers D store. I walked by thought broadcasting how helpful it would be to have an ssri reduction schedule. Are you living in San Angelo Angela? Real or imagined I felt it timely to write you and say thank you for being you!

    • Thanks Greg. I am actually in Southern California. I do have a reduction schedule for SSRI but it is only valid for those that are not time release. If you take a non-time release SSRI and your doctor agrees to your stopping it, which is important since you will need to medicine for quite some time to come off of an SSRI, you can use the schedule here. A “shaving” means with a blade as thin as you can… and keep the shavings in case you need to back off and go back to your previous dose for longer. Depending on the SSRI type, the dose you are taking and for the length of time you have been on it, the reduction to zero SSRI can take a year or more. Few doctors realize this and they put people on a very quick reduction, which pulls every single one through the mud and back on the medicine! Some doctors actually prefer this to happen–I have bumped into a few via my migraine group members. They were rude and simply did not want to participate in a proper reduction schedule in order for the patient to have to return, which later was confirmed to be the case because of payments received from the drug companies by these doctors. This I also recommend you check your doctor in the now public database to see if s/he gets paid. Your success in getting full support may depend on this! Good luck and please keep me posted! Please p rint out the schedule if you can or take it on your smart device to you new PCP to see his reaction and seek his approval.


I would love to see your thoughts!
