"antidepressants can cause anything from nervousness, headache and dry mouth to insomnia, dizziness and erectile dysfunction."

 

The number and severity of the side-effects mentioned in the article are, of course, just the tip of the iceberg. Better than nothing, though.

 

"Researchers found that more than a quarter of Americans currently taking antidepressants haven't actually been diagnosed with the conditions that traditionally qualified one for a prescription, like depression or anxiety disorders."

 

I bet this number is much higher, considering the broadening of the definition of "depression and anxiety disorders".

 

 

Quite many comments in the comment section are really insightful. Still others would need being answered to with the link to "survivingantidepressants" once it is brimful of the *real* data on SSRIs, which will happen soon, by the way.

2000-2008 Paxil for a situational depression

2008 - Paxil c/t

Severe protracted WD syndrome ever since; improving

Yes, that's one way we'll get the word out!
