Ooooooooooo, I dunno about the suicide rates being linked to these drugs in the military, but it is shocking to see the correlation between SSRI's
It seems more often than not, military suicide is linked to soldiers not receiving care due to their stressful duties(PTSD), Depression, remorse, so
on, so on.
People who are taking these medication are taking them for a reason. To claim that the medications actually cause them to commit murder is ridiculous
Maybe it has more to do with the medications not working and their condition. What is to say they wouldnt have commited the crime if they never too
the medications, or how many of these medications have actually stopped people from committing crimes.
I am sorry but you are wrong. Most people who are taking these medications don't need them. Everyone who is depressed or has ADHD does not need
medication. I took my step daughter off it when she came to me against doctors orders. She had ADHD so I signed her up for Soccer. Turns out
Soccer, love, and Patience worked far better than the crap that was making her depressed, have nightmares, and be quick to anger.
If you're not hearing voices, or your not suicidal, than the condition you have is called life. Bi Polar is BS. I have known way to many people who
say they are Bi Polar. First they do not CT scan of the brain, second everyone is Bi Polar to some extent. We all live through lives ups and downs.
We don't need a pill that not only deadens our downs but practically eliminates the highs. The highs in life are what is worth living for. Clouding
the mind with drugs to stay in a constant state of emotionless life does not cure anything. Friends, family, and love is what it takes to cure
depression. The problem is we have become a selfish culture where it is easier to prescribe a pill than it is to give a crap about each other.
SSRIU are research medications at best. We have allowed ourselves to be test subjects long enough. If your child is hard to deal with love them
more, don't medicate them more. If you have depression reache out to your friends and family, not a pill.
We are turning hyper children, depressed teenagers, overworked fathers, and underappreciated mothers into lifeless psychotics by giving them pills to
cover up the real problems.
This is my opinion based on the many friends and family members who have taken these. Everyone I have been able to convince to stop has thanked me
for it. It is better to be high and low than to be depressed but too drugged to comprehend life. These medications don't make people happier, they
make them less aware and less in touch with reality.
If your hearing voices or feel like you are a danger to yourself or others than by all means you need help. And if medicine helps than by all means
you should take it every day.
Everyone else just stop, your normal. ADHD normal for many kids. BI - Polar, normal especially in middle age women who are going through hormonal
changes. Depression, normal for the overworked, underappreciated, unloving generation that we have become. We need to love each other. We need to
reinforce family. We need to put down the cell phone, turn off the TV, and spend time with each other.
We were created to be a family and have friends. We are supposed to spend quality time with each other. We are not supposed to shut ourselves in our
houses and rooms and allow technology to be are only source of life. We need to reintroduce ourselves to humanity. We need to come together daily so
that we can talk about life together.
We need entire communities to come together and get to know about each other. We need to talk so that we can realize that all of the things we are
feeling are common to the majority. I read a study that over 50% of all middle aged women are classified depressed. This cannot be the cause of a
brain disorder; it is the cause of a social disorder. No amount of medication will cure the social disorder. We collectively can cure the social
