How did we get here?
Please review this quick video before proceeding.
This is merely my analysis of open source information on this subject.
Please consult your doctor before stopping an SSRI or any other antidepressants.
You see, SSRIs are prescribed despite a consensus over the mechanism of action (moa).
There are currently several theories as to how they work to alter mood.
Hitler's chemists were feeding our CIA with drugs developed by the Swiss that had "military potential.
"Big Pharma" now had neverending demand for drugs prescribed by providers with no real diagnostic tools.
Studies have shown that in the first week of starting an SSRI (or changing dose) patients are at an increased risk for suicidal ideation. This increases in patients who already have these thoughts and people under 24yo.
This is creates a sense of "motivation" & energy for the patient.
What was previously a passing emotionally charged thought now becomes an impulse they are more likely to act on.
Should we assume they are advancing their methods in mind control as well? No?
He said he also took drugs including Vicodine, Quaaludes, hallucinogenics & magic mushrooms"
This is not a thread meant to stop anyone from taking their medication.
It you have concerns with your meds please contact your doctor.
As I've stated above being noncompliant can be very dangerous.
