I wrote an article as part of the Drugs of Shame series on the many triptans, SSRIs, SNRIs, and similar medicines prescribed for migraines and depressions. I questioned if given all of our new knowledge that both migraines and depression are caused by cortically depressed brain regions (regions not able to generate voltage, which is called “cortical depression”). We also know that voltage applied to those regions stops both migraines and depression by the many deep brain stimulation surgical experiments, as well as by 4000 passing members in my migraine group passing through over the past two years, then why are we using medicines?
I know why: it pays the doctors and the pharmaceutical companies. Check your doctors’ names in this database to see if payments are made–it can say “lunches” or “dinners” but that is since straight payments were knocked to the ground in this open database!
So if you have migraines and/or suffer with depression, I highly recommend you read and share
As always, comments are welcome!
