MAYO CLINIC: Anti-depressant and Pregnancy – and current protocol of Shock treatments

According to Mayo Clinic “generally, these antidepressants are an option during pregnancy:”

VLA comment: The list below are the recommended options that however come with risks.  What is not listed are the rest of the pharma madness drugs given to women approaching child bearing age and therefore compelled to continue the regimen during pregancy.  Other drugs are not listed because they are so risky for birth defects that they are not even considered.  However, how many young women have been prescribed these medication since teenagers?

  • Certain selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). SSRIs are generally considered an option during pregnancy, including citalopram (Celexa), fluoxetine (Prozac) and sertraline (Zoloft). Potential complications include an increased risk of heavy bleeding after giving birth (postpartum hemorrhage), premature birth and low birth weight. Most studies show that SSRIs aren’t associated with birth defects. However, paroxetine (Paxil) appears to be associated with a small increased risk of a fetal heart defect.
  • Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). SNRIs also are considered an option during pregnancy, including duloxetine (Cymbalta) and venlafaxine (Effexor XR). However, research suggests that taking SNRIs at the end of pregnancy is associated with postpartum hemorrhage.
  • Bupropion (Wellbutrin). This medication is used for both depression and smoking cessation. Although bupropion isn’t generally considered a first line treatment for depression during pregnancy, it might be an option for women who haven’t responded to other medications. Research suggests taking bupropion during pregnancy might be associated with heart defects.
  • Tricyclic antidepressants. This class of medications includes nortriptyline (Pamelor). Although tricyclic antidepressants aren’t generally considered a first line or second line treatment, they might be an option for women who haven’t responded to other medications. The tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine might be associated with fetal birth defects, including heart defects. Use of these medications during the second or third trimester might also be linked with postpartum hemorrhage.     READMore

SHOCK TREATMENTS

Electroshock is also known by the euphemism electroconvulsive therapy or ECT. Many electroshock patients receive the treatment against their will. Psychiatrists also claim that electroshock is safe during pregnancy and give the treatment to pregnant women.

Electroconvulsive therapy is a safe and effective treatment during pregnancy and of particular benefit in the acute treatment of suicidal ideation.

VLA COMMENT: Suicidal ideations are a result of anti depressants and other drugs not being metabolized properly.  These drugs need Cytochrome P450 to metabolize.  If the patient does not have the activity of this family of liver enzymes and are prescribed drugs that are contra-indicated, as per the package inserts, adverse reactions such as “compelling” suicideal ideations (and heinous ideations of homicide) are likely to occur.

As the statement above refers to “acute treatment of suicidal ideation” it signals that the pregnant patient may be on medication that cannot be metabolized by his/her system of liver enzymes. Hence…the apparent solution to pregnant women who have been on anti depressants and psyche drugs for years and must continue during pregancy, is to top it all off with SHOCK TREATMENTS.  This allows the women to remain on psyche drug medication during her pregnancy.  However as noted in our posting Glyphosate, Drugs and Vaccines....the Cytochrome P450 metabolism is also found in the placenta.

Washington University in St. Louis Shocks Pregnant Women

According to the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), Approximately 150,000 people get ECT every year in the US, with 2,000 shock treatments being done every year by WUSTL psychiatrists at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Complications after treatment usually increase with the age of the patient; small surprise there. WUSTL psychiatrists say that, “ECT is considered a safe treatment modality in pregnant women in whom a number of medications may be associated with risk to the fetus.” READ MORE…
