FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PR Log (Press Release)Aug 24, 2006 – On July 21st, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asked antidepressant drug makers to add two more warnings to the drug labels. According to the FDA, antidepressants such as Paxil, Prozac or Zoloft taken during pregnancy can cause the newborn to develop a fatal lung disease.

Niacin, the Mental Health Alternative

Dr. Abram Hoffer talks about niacin as an alternative to psychiatric medication and  statins (cholesterol medication).

So if you are fed up with the side effects from your drugs and are seeking an alternative to antidepressants, antipsychotics or statins work with the healing professional of your choice and try niacin. In my research I have found that it helps depression, anxiety, lowers cholesterol levels and more.

Please note that in the video when Dr. Hoffer refers to “Bill W.” he is referring to Bill Wilson, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.
