"Depression, sleepiness or insomnia, unexplained aches and pains, fatigue, loss of interest in doing things a person used to love are all signs of" mild side effects of an SSRI antidepressant.
Not sure what planet you are on, but down here on earth there are SO MANY horrific effects of these drugs that I rarely get a chance to catch my breath trying to keep up with them all! I have served as an expert for two decades in SSRI-induced tragedies like the murder/suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife, Columbine, Red Lake, Andrea Yates, the Atlanta Day Trader, the NY City Subway Bomber - to name only a small handful that involved antidepressants. Two entire families just this last week in Maryland alone dead in murder/suicides due to these deadly drugs and you are touting them as miracles?!! You are two decades too late.
Did you miss the revelation last year that studies hidden by these companies for decades show that they are of no more benefit than a sugar pill?! (Yet they have listed warnings of suicide and homicidal ideation.) And what about the US Justice Dept filing fraud against one of these companies for hiding the data they had on Lexapro causing suicide in children - like the 7 year old in Miami this last week? We pull peanut butter off the market for causing less damage than we have seen from these drugs in a week! Check out just some of the cases: www.ssristories.com
You want to know why the drug makers do so well? It is because these drugs are so incredibly addictive that once someone is on them they have a customer for life UNLESS they are lucky enough to find there is a safe way to withdraw from the drugs - EXTREMELY SLOWLY.
