He is actually pretty accurate. SSRIs are antidepressants but also help your body aboard the chemicals it creates as well, rather than flushing them
out. I was put on Celexa In 2004 while in a testing phase. In 2010 a lawsuit was filed against the maker for mishandling their product labels. Fun
fact, you aren't supposed to put children on Celexa. Minimum age is 24.... I was 14. There is some truth to what he was saying.
I don't disagree, but regardless, it is an anti depressant. Look at, for example, Prozac. A well known anti depressant. It is an SSRI. The mixed up
info he was giving, is why children are put on these horrid things at 14. Or younger. Or their pet dog. A complete lack of innate ability to diagnose,
yet are freely handing out advice with the proviso that they are a professional in the field.
Even doctors do it, and they ARE trained adequately. There needs to be a complete reform of the medical profession related to this topic. Too many
people handing out lacking information or ambiguous information or as here, both, by an unqualified 'professional' on an internet forum.
I've been on and off SSRIs, SNRIs, MAOIs, TCAs, and TeCAs since 1997. I have not had a single one work effectively without severe negative side
effects. I stopped Pristiq a few weeks ago, and it's still kicking me down.
I'm glad you've pulled through though. I don't want my interruption to your thread to imply I am not.
All I know is it always returns, deeper and bleaker than before, and you suddenly find yourself in that darkness that covers your entire soul..
