A nation hooked on happy pills: GPs treble doses of anti-depressants in 15 years as Britain heads towards top of world table

  • Prescription rates trebled in 15 years, putting UK fourth among Western nations
  • Brits take nearly twice as many ‘happy pills’ as counterparts in France and Italy
  • Experts claimed that patients were demanding a quick fix to avoid feeling down
  • Others blamed GPs for fobbing off down patients with pills due to waiting lists
