hugugh Posted June 8, 2022 Share Posted June 8, 2022 I've been slightly obsessed and majorly confused with this article since I found it: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2253608/ I don't understand how drugs with such terrible side effects and with very little/no efficacy were approved for use and became so popular throughout the world. I am not a conspiracy theorist so I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that anti-depressants might just be one giant scam between pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies and doctors. How is this possible? If this research is real (and it sure looks convincing) and antidepressants really are no better than placebo, then if the research was not muddled and hidden, my poor daughter would have been saved from years of torment that almost took her life. It makes me want to tear my hair out thinking about this. Has anyone seen this research? Opinions? 1 Daughter's Med History: Zoloft (25 mg-200mg) 2019-2022.
