I have a medical condition, serotonin syndrome. My body experienced a hypersensitive allergic reaction to the SSRI medication I took. I have severe side effects that are permanent.
Generally people die or commit suicide with this condition, but some how I survived. Initially, I was in the hospital only 5% alive. I have fought to gain some strength to continue in life.
I have to stay in bed most of the time. Right now my energy is about 30% alive. Going to an atlas specific chiropractor helped me.
After research on the Internet I found that an orthomoleculor doctor can possibly help me get back to normal.
To make matters worse apparently there is some kind of controversy about SSRI medication and the high rate of suicide. This has made many doctors leary to help a patient recover from the serotonin problem.
