I totally agree with med empowered. Even the best psychiatrists believe that AD's only try and controll the symptoms of depression, as oppsed to ever targeting the root cause.
Dr. Manji for instance, doesn't really believe in Antidepressants. He believes in mood stabalizers, but that is a different issue entirely.
Companies have to perform like 10 trials just to get one that shows the drug was better than the placebo.
I think that popping the drug is just a reminder that we have some support.
So if they just didn't work, that'd be one thing, but the fact that I am walking proof that they are not benign placebos is another thing.
