Research in the UK states high levels of inflammation interfere with the efficacy of antidepressants. When inflammation is cut the antidepressants work better. This is most likely one of several reasons why anti-depressants can be cut on The Plan. The Plan reduces inflammation, you need lower doses and your medications work more effectively!

Those who tested positive for inflammation need more aggressive therapy from the outset. The research is published in the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology. Two markers of inflammation were discovered a compound called macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) and another called interleukin-1beta. Patients who had high levels of these markers did not respond well to traditional antidepressants. There is now research to see if administering anti-inflammatory drugs in conjunction with the antidepressants may work better at treating depression.

But there can be a simpler answer.  Rather than taking more drugs to make drugs work more effectively, simply reduce inflammation, boost serotonin and thyroid function by doing The Plan.
