New Treatment for Depression

Jeremy Sharp, PhDUncategorized Leave a Comment

As a follow up to the recent post on how to get the most out of your appointment with a psychiatrist, there’s this news. I’d love to be a fly on the wall during that conversation…

“Here are your options, Patient Smith: you can start Prozac, which will take a few weeks to kick in, likely decrease your sex drive, and may not do anything at all for you…OR you can take these magic mushrooms, which could elevate your mood, produce altered states of consciousness, and enhance your experience of listening to music. Your choice.”

Hm…now for the FDA approval…

Author’s Note: I am not advocating the use of magic mushrooms to treat depression.
