psychostudyA study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry shows majority of people on antidepressants have no metal disorders.

“Among antidepressant users, 69% never met criteria for major depressive disorder (MDD),” documented the researchers. “And 38% never met criteria for MDD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, or generalized anxiety disorder in their lifetime.”

The study was reviewed by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The document concluded that:

“Many individuals who are prescribed and use antidepressant medications may not have met criteria for mental disorders,” they concluded. “Our data indicate that antidepressants are commonly used in the absence of clear evidence-based indications.”

As a doctor writes a prescription, the pharmaceutical company writes him a check. Meaning doctors are paid per prescription as reported by the New York Times.  Could doctors be prescribing patients incorrectly to collect a paycheck?

They will tell you depression hurts, but have they told you antidepressants can kill?

  • Violent Thoughts
  • Violent Actions
  • Suicidal Thoughts
