Antidepressants - Ineffective and Deadly

Antidepressant drugs are ineffective for MOST people who they are prescribed for. This, according to a new research article in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association. Check out a nice summary of the research at theNY Times or read the research study yourself.

This information pretty much repeats an earlier analysis that I wrote about previously - telling the same thing = ineffectiveness of this class of medications - which are the most-prescribed category of drugs in the nation - and which carry FDA’s most stringent “Black Box” warning for serious adverse side effects.

Listen to one of my recent podcasts on the topic of Depression for a completely different take on naturally improving mood, reducing stress, and feeling better.

Not worth the risk for most people.

Thanks for reading.
