I’ve been practicing medicine for 40 years, and I’ve seen Big Pharma use every sleazy trick in the book to make a buck.
But this time, it’s gone WAY too far…
I don’t need to tell you that antidepressant use is EXPLODING in America right now. Prescriptions are up 65 percent over the past 15 years.
And the drug companies are making money faster than they can count it.
Now, there’s a push to get a whole new class of patients popping these risky pills.
And if you’re not careful, it could end up costing you your life.
A small new study out of South Korea is claiming that a common antidepressant called escitalopram (a.k.a. Lexapro) can cut your risk of having a second heart attack by 20 percent.
You’d normally have to go to the ocean to see something this fishy.
First of all, escitalopram is part of a class of antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), like Zoloft and Prozac. They basically work by keeping the neurotransmitter serotonin around in your brain a little longer.
And when OTHER researchers tested Zoloft on heart attack patients, they found NO BENEFIT AT ALL.
Two drugs… that function the same exact way… but one helps, and one doesn’t. And researchers have no idea why.
Like I said, the whole thing is fishy.
But trust me – it won’t matter. Big Pharma sales reps will be breaking down doors at doctors’ offices, “educating” physicians about how antidepressants prevent heart attacks.
And you can bet that some doctors will be stocking up on pens for all the prescriptions they plan to write.
But here’s the TRUTH.
Antidepressants have been repeatedly linked to significant weight gain, which is a major risk factor for heart disease.
And a study out of Canada published just last year found that antidepressants raise your risk of dying from ALL causes by ONE-THIRD!
If you or someone you love has suffered a heart attack, don’t settle for an antidepressant prescription you don’t need.
The natural supplement coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can help strengthen your heart – and it’s been proven to slash your risk of dying from a heart attack.
And CoQ10 is backed by DECADES of science.
You know, REAL science.
