I don't really know, but I also suspect Paul's answer
is the basically it. SSRI's are non-addicting,
very safe in overdose (compared to the older AD's),
and I think don't have interactions with too many
other drugs. It would (to my knowldedge) seem that
they are the safest psychotropic availible, so
it's easy to toss them at any psych. problem,
since since the risks are few. If a very safe
verison of thorazine had been invented, maybe
they'd be throwing that at everything.
