I'm not an anti-pharmaceutical person, but we need to know the risks of antidepressants. Someday, I hope people will be able to look back upon the psychotropic drugs of today as we do the Dark Ages. But for now, we have to consider some really negative things about these meds. We already know that the drug companies have been very manipulative. They have affected researchers and doctors in scandalous ways, and some very noteworthy examples have made it into the press and led to serious fines as well.
