In reply to Dramatic Increase In Antidepressant Use Up 400%, posted by Phillipa on October 21, 2011, at 21:21:32
I would say when a national leader boasts of hope and change, but instead delivers despair and suffering, coupled with economic conditions more in tune with a depression than a recession, it is no wonder antidepressant usage is up. With all the TV and magazine ads from pharmaceutical companies, I would say their marketing teams are succeeding at reaching their goals, as shown by the 400% increase.
If there was ever a time in history for antidepressant usage to spike to new highs, this is it.
