Thanks for your thoughts bleauberry....it is nice to know that I am not alone in questioning this process, since the prescribing MD's or PDocs that I have visited never once mentioned, or were able to explain my question.
What we do know for sure....is that SSRI's and SSNI's do improve mood in the vast majority of cases...so that IS good news to the moderate to severely depressed and of course individuals whose depression has worsened to the point of suicide idealization or worse...
I guess the long-term effects and weighing the Benefits vs Risk is an individual decision.
