depression is always a mixture of many things…there is no such thing as a monolithic state called depression…the fact that people imagine that is the case, is a problem

Absolutely!

 

I am SICK of these giant labels where "One Size Fits All" becomes the diagnoses standard.

 

And why is it that the patients are the ones informing their doctors? Shouldn't it be the other way around????? :angry:

 

PS Thanks for your site, Monica. It's been a real blessing! :D

 

-Salted

10 mg daily Fluoxetine/Prozac Jan. 2009-Nov. 2012

Went COLD TURKEY Nov. 2012-March 2013

.05-1 mg daily Lorazepam March 2013-April 2013

After approximately 21 days, stopped COLD TURKEY

Doctor put me on 20 mg daily Fluoxetine/Prozac as of 4/25/13

I decided to jump down to 10 mg daily Fluoxetine/Prozac as of 5/08/13

Will stay here for a few months, then taper to ZERO!!

I agree that depression can be the result of many factors and often a combination of them. There are many diseases, cancer among them, that have depression as a symptom and there are many, many drugs, including some OTC ones that have depression and fatigue as side effects. A lack of enough natural light and exercise can cause depression. Expecting too much of ourselves, others, or a situation can cause depression. It's definitely not a "one size fits all" diagnosis, but it's so much easier and more profitable to pretend that it is and prescribe drugs.

 

I, too, value your blog and the tremendous amount of work you've put into setting the record on psychiatric drugs straight.

Psychotropic drug history: Pristiq 50 mg. (mid-September 2010 through February 2011), Remeron (mid-September 2010 through January 2011), Lexapro 10 mg. (mid-February 2011 through mid-December 2011), Lorazepam (Ativan) 1 mg. as needed mid-September 2010 through early March 2012
