    SSRI use during pregnancy increase risk of neonatal seizures/epilepsy

    So much for "safe and effective during pregnancy"...I shudder at the thought of how many women get talked into using SSRI during pregnancy without even having depression.

    Estrogen Causes Epilepsy/seizures; Aromatase Inhibitors Are Viable Treatment

    In perhaps what is one of the most striking and open confirmations of Ray's views, this study finally acknowledges what the man has been saying for years. Estrogen is a major cause (and maybe even THE cause) of epilepsy and its associated seizures, and inhibiting estrogen synthesis may be a...
