>You may be one of thousands of people that had a situational or mild to moderate depression that never should have been treated with medication, especially as a first line treatment. That said, medication is necessary for thousands of others.
> I have found Dr. Breggins web site tremendously helpful in my quest to withdrawal from medication that I never should have taken in the first place. There is no scientific proof of chemical imbalance. There is no way that the brain can be tested for imbalance. I believe that the drug manufacturers are indeed padding their own pockets. If you go to: http://www.furiousseasons.com/ you can download and read documents that were leaked from companies such as Lily that they suppressed information about negative case studies for some of their psychiatric drugs. I am not trying to encourage people to not take their medication or claiming that you do not need to be on medication. You can also find on Youtube interviews with Dr. Breggin about his ideas that medication is not the answer. He also has a psychiatric practice in New York. No one does not have to agree with 100% of what he says. On his website you can read his case studies or theories about what these medications do to our brains. I personally have benefitted from reading his theories to come to some sort of understanding to what has happened to me as a result of taking these meds.
