O.K. so the message delivery is a little bit harsh and it makes us all a tad bit defensive to the point where we start to diagram Cheetah"s sentences if maybe we can break down the messenger and the message will therefore be less credible. This is a wonderfull tactic for debate but it really does skirt the main issue brought up here as I tried to state in the post above on the paxil lawsuit in England. None of us including me wants to think even for a second that the bad press about any of our drugs is true. It shakes our secure little medicated worlds. News Flash.......All of our drugs do damage to our bodies they are foreign substances that our livers have to work overtime to clear out. News Flash........some people have had really bad expereinces on the drugs we use and lives have been lost on FDA approved drugs. News Flash........Just because someone has a different viewpoint does not necessarily make them a blubbering idiot even if they don't use spell check. There have been bad reactions to all of the ssris and maybe people even kill on them and maybe people have withdrawal symptoms and maybe people become violent on them and maybe the same thing happens to people who take my drug xanax. I just know that those things aren't happening to me. It doesn't mean they don't happent to others. Most people using meds on this board especially ssri users are so defensive.....the first little piece of adverse data that hits this board and everyone dismisses it as quackery or hogwash. If we take a closer look at the message and not the messanger we will see what makes us defensive is that their is some truth in it....otherwise the reactions would be much more tempered. Let's risk it....let's look at the bad sides to our meds....maybe then we can push for better drugs.......safer drugs........and we all win. Cheetah may be abrasive but for me there is some truth to the message that makes me wiggle a little in my seat.....I hope I am not alone
