Solving for Antidepressant-Induced Nutrient Depletions

Science-Based Solutions

Presented by Jill Carnahan, MD, ABIHM, ABOIM, and Sarah Morgan, Founder & CEO of Even

What to expect

It is inevitable that many of us will need medication at some point, necessary medication that may successfully treat a condition but may simultaneously create side effects that can affect patient compliance. This possibility, in addition to imbalances created by drug-nutrient interactions, can present challenges to integrative practitioners when creating holistic wellness plans. One of these challenges is referred to as medication-induced nutrient depletions (M.I.N.D.™). Join Sarah Morgan, co-founder and CEO of Even, and Jill Carnahan, MD, board-certified integrative medicine physician, as they dive into responsible and innovative solutions for medication-induced nutrient depletions. In this third episode of an ongoing series, Sarah and Dr. Carnahan will cover interactions with commonly prescribed antidepressant drugs.

You will learn:
  • Pleiotropic effects of antidepressants 
  • Common side effects/complaints from antidepressant users 
  • M.I.N.D. related to antidepressants 
  • How to create, implement, and monitor full-spectrum wellness plans for antidepressant users 

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn first-hand how science and nutrition come together to bring wellness to patients and bridge the nutrition gap that can be created by pharmaceutical treatments.
