QuoteIt is still possible that beta blockers cause depression in some cases, cautions psychiatrist Stuart C. Yudofsky of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Beta blockers are known to affect serotonin, a brain chemical that may be associated with depression, he says.It's written on internet that beta-blockers are sometimes causing depression. This disease is frequently coming with high levels of cortisol. To be sure I'd make the cortisol test without taking them.

I am not a big believer in the superiority of conventional practitioners. I almost died from taking Vioxx for a knee injury. I ended up wandering around in a haze with dangerously low BP. I survived by stumbling into a convenience store and downing energy drinks. I had severe chest pain for months after.The pharmeceutical industry puts out articles trashing alternative medicine and tries to push for regulations that would require prescriptions for vitamins because they fear them. Hospitals and drug companies are conglomerates intersted in a bottom line. The old family doctor is almost extinct. My mother died in a hospital because the epinephrine they gave in the ER wouldn't work because her dcoctor had upped the dose of high blood pressure medicineI worked in medical research. The labs are paid big bucks to get results for drugs. They get positive test results. If not there is always a paper shredder nearby. The lack of oversight is a "joke".
Martin, which category do you put Levitra in? That's been a powerful remedy for at least two people here, myself included.
Martin, I am seeing the university endocrinologist as an individual patient (anyone can go). Not as part of any research study. But it might also be a good way to find out if there is a possibility for them to do POIS research eventually.
...I have no doubt that Levitra is powerful and effective for you. But you say it's only a 50-75% cure.
So it [Fenugreek] is still very successful for me!
