The more you know!

October 2, 2011


“Antidepressants can increase suicidal thoughts and behaviors in children, teens, and young adults.”

A singing endorsement!  It probably won’t cause heart disease, liver failure, or stroke, but it might do the exact opposite of what it’s meant to do.

How do they even know this?  Who signed their child up for the test run on this product?  Was it outsourced to an exploitable third world nation?  Were the test subjects suicidal because of the product or because they’d been farmed out to a drug company?

What a great and flexible field, pharmacology (from the Greek pharmacon, meaning poison).  If massive headaches were a side effect of Advil, they’d send that formula back to the lab, but in the brave (and lucrative!) new world of antidepression medication, increased depression is an acceptable result.  Who knew!
