STUDY LINKS SSRI ANTIDEPRESSANTS TO LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT PROBLEMS
ZOLOFT, CELEXA, LEXAPRO, PAXIL, PROZAC: “The study was published online in the Proceedings the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America on October 8. It explored language development in infants whose mothers had taken SSRI antidepressants, including Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, Paxil, and Prozac while they were pregnant with their children.”
“Babies whose mothers took SSRI drugs could not discriminate language at either six or ten months, whereas in the control group, babies responded as expected to nonnative speech and visual language tasks.”
Of course what is not said here is that brain damage is what generally retards development. If these drugs are known to produce brain damage in the adults who take them why would we not expect them to produce brain damage in an infant who is in the process of developing a brain???
One mother I helped had a little girl born to her while on Prozac. At age three the little girl suddenly could not speak clearly enough for others to understand her. Of course her mother came to me asking what she should do. My first question was is she drinking fluoridated water, bathing in fluoridated water or using fluoridated toothpaste? To my horror I heard the dentist had just started giving her fluoride tablets to take! Because one of the main active ingredients in Prozac is fluoride she was having reactions because her fluoride level was already way too high from the mother’s use of Prozac. She was suffering a chemical sensitivity to the fluoride. As soon as she stopped the fluoride pills & began using some natural things to help her rebuild her speech returned to normal.

“Ann, I just wanted to let you know from the bottom of my heart how grateful I am God placed you in my life. I am now down to less than 2 mg on my Cymbalta and I have never felt better. I am finally getting my life back. I can feel again and colors have never been brighter. Thanks for all that you do!!” … Amber Weber
“Used your method of weaning off of SSRI’s and applied it to Ambien. Took 6 months but had been on 15 mg for years so what was another 6 months. I have been sleeping without it for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have been able to sleep drug free for 15 years. What a relief to be able to lay down and sleep when I need or want to. Ambien may be necessary for people at times but doctors giving a months worth of it at a time with unlimited refills is a prescription for disaster. It is so damn easy to become dependent on. Thanks for your council Ann.”… Mark Hill
“I’m so thankful for AnnTracy and all her work. Also for taking the time out to talk to me and educate everyone! She has been a blessing to me during this awful time of antidepressant hell!” … Antoinette Beck
