these seemingly dangerous pills are almost handed out like candy. "oh you are feeling sad here take these. they will HELP YOU".
That's completely unrelated to my post. I wasn't addressing that. And I wouldn't necessarily argue it either.
Specifically the idea anti-depressants are connected to these shootings. That's the only way my post should have been read.
i would have VIOLENT outbursts
Thanks for sharing your experience. It's valid and should be considered. In fact that is exactly what my post was about. Being objective and looking
at the facts (stats in this case). What percentage of the 30+ million people who used them experienced uncontrollable violent outbursts? I myself have
been on Wellbutrin, Paxil, and Zoloft, and never experienced what you described. I took them after breakups, deaths in the family, things of those
nature and they helped for the short term. I experienced negative side effects, but nothing remotely close to violent thought. Nor was I not in
it does not take any leap of imagination that someone could go out on a rampage under these meds at all.
It takes a leap if it's unfounded. I don't see a compelling reason to believe they are a cause. At the very most a catalyst in someone already
predisposed for violent or homicidal thought.
I am open to hearing an argument to think otherwise. As it stands what I am reading in this thread hasn't swayed me. It's mostly been very general
med and big pharma bashing.
A tangent thought.... but it reminds me of Ted Bundy's story. He claimed pornography was part of the cause for his actions. What's the percentage of
people who look at pornography and don't rape and murder woman? Is it a cause in his case? Or was it a catalyst among other co-factors in someone
with a mind predisposed for rape and murder? I don't attribute his actions to porn. Nor the actions of these shooters to medications.
so because 30,000,000 people use these drugs yet don't ALL "freak out", there is no problem?
I am saying these staggering numbers should at least make someone question whether they are connected.
I wonder what the percent of these 30,000,000+ went on killing sprees. I bet it's really small. That should be significant when looking for
well what if say the issue only occurs to 1% of them?
If it can be shown that it's really the cause then even 1% is of course a problem.
