Failure of Antidepressant Drugs

February 8th, 2011 · No Comments

Have you been easily prescribed for antidepressant drugs? Have you noticed that they didn’t work for you?

Here is a research report for you – The Emperor’s New Drugs: An Analysis of Antidepressant Medication Data Submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Prevention & Treatment by the American Psychological Association, reveals amazing evidence that antidepressants don’t really work.

The study analyzed the six most widely prescribed antidepressants (SSRI) approved between 1987 and 1999: fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), venlafaxine (Effexor), nefazodone (Serzone), and citalopram (Celexa).

The study concluded that the difference between the drug and a placebo is relatively small and its clinical significance is dubious. Therefore “there may be little justification for the clinical use of these medications”.
