Harvard guidelines, confused!

Hmmmm

" Having discontinuation symptoms doesn't mean you're addicted to your antidepressant. A person who is addicted craves the drug and often needs increasingly higher doses. Few people who take antidepressants develop a craving or feel a need to increase the dose. (Sometimes an SRI will stop working — a phenomenon called "Prozac poop-out" — which may necessitate increasing the dose or adding another drug."

 

Perhaps my brain is simply not processing this properly, but they seem to be saying:

 

Addiction requires one to feel the need to increase the dose. SSRIs do not cause addiction. SSRIs have a phenomenon where they stop working and you need to increase the dose.

It's just another way for Big-Pharma to say, "Our drugs are safe, effective, and non-addictive!"
