SSRIs have been on the market for over 20 yrs. They increase levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a substance that allows chemical activity in the brain (neurotransmitter). Serotonin is known to play a role in depression and anxiety. SSRIs are used for treatment of depression, anxiety, Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and occasionally other illnesses. (Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, pain). SSRIs have much fewer side effects than the older antidepressants (tricyclics such as Elavil) they are not as lethal in overdose, and work well for most people. They are much more expensive then tricyclics. All SSRI s are effective although side effects may differ somewhat. Because individuals are different, some may react more positively to one particular medication then to another. Choosing between the SSRI S is usually dependent on the side effect profile (see below), and the prescriber s and patient s preference and experience. They are usually the first choice in depression and often the first choice in anxiety disorders. With anxious patients it is helpful to start low and increase the dose slowly in order to minimize the side effect of activation. Anxious patients can be very sensitive to this side effect. Higher doses of medications are often needed in Obsessive Compulsive disorder and Panic disorder. effective ways to lose weight It is not surprising that, today, they are often considered as nothing other than starchy fillers, when you think nearly all commercially available cereal products have been so refined there is not a lot left except for the starch.

St. Julie's Strikes Gold With Expressive Arts!

We are delighted to annouce that St. Julie's has once again been awarded Artsmark Gold Status by the Arts Council!

The award recognises "an excellent commitment to providing high quality arts provision that is embedded across the curriculum."

The assessment requires us as a school to provide extensive evidence of what our students experience within expressive arts, and the evidence is rigorously scrutinised. It is not usual for a school that isn't a Specialist Arts School to gain the gold award, and this stands as a great testimony to the hard work that goes on with all of our talented students throughout the Expressive Arts.
