    I talked with Dr. Creagen after his show and he mentioned the book called Healthy Living, is he the author? I went on Amazon.com and couldn’t find it written by him. Thanks for getting back to me. Teresa

    There have been a large number of studies and articles about the affects of animals on humans’ stress levels and happiness. For anyone who has had pets, it seems obvious that this would be generally true. That said, I would love to see more work on furthering our knowledge and more measurement. – adrian meli

    Dr. Creagan, I went on Lexapro 3 years ago after having 2 knee replacements and almost losing my husband after a heart attack, then triple bypass. I stayed on it through another knee replacement and my brother having ALS for 16 months and passing. I tried to stop it this year, and got involved with some stress with our local city council (just standing up for one of our city departments)and now I am beginning to feel some of the same symptoms I had before going on Lexapro 3 years ago. I guess I need to go back on it. Lexapro was good for me, but is there anything better on the market or any suggestion you have? Thank you for any advice, Faye.
