Good point. There is a lot of psyhological dependence on SSRIs. I think that whatever works is what one should use. You should do your own benefit/risk analyis by putting together a 'mosaic of truth' with information from your doctor and information that you gather independently.
> Don't let any GP see your statement, diabetics need insulin and I need klonopin. Because they have another theory. Diabetics need insulin and you need Antidepressants, preferably the newer ones. They won't allow you to take a benzo, but will be happy if you are ready to take ADs which induce more side effects and more psychological dependence, which is much worse than physiological dependence. We will not get any answer from them. And don't ask why ADs are safe and Benzos are dangerous. It is the trend or it is the fashion now.
