After listening to Dr Zoe Noris spouting pharma propaganda i dont hold out much hope for the flood of ad prescribing slowing any time soon.
The good thing (or bad thing) is that doctor Noris is taking these very chemicals for herself ...in time she will have first hand experience as to the fate that awaits. She has already had to ri because of wdl symptoms from trying to get off. I wonder if she is aware its the drug and not her.
In Britain, 63.5 million prescriptions for the yr ending Sept 2016 up 4 million on the twelve months prior. Oh boy!
The 'prescribe and forget' statement sums it up really.
The very last word the very last sentence by Bryly Gordon was disappointing to say the least.
2000 amitryptaline, nortriptaline venlafaxine clonazepam for arm pain from keyboard use, told I had a chemical imbalance it would fix my arm was just a matter of finding the right med for me not informed of the nature of these drugs assured safe and not addictive, CT off Effexor after being told to double the dose on reporting adverse effects...later ..uncharacteristic psych panic tearful presented to doctor to get answers. Given paroxetine no questions asked 'safe and not addictive' next please.2001-2010 paroxetine (paxil) 2 failed attempts to quit, a learned helplessness set in. Feb 10 - Sept 10, 8 month clueless taper, hell. Doc said I had underlying depression .. I said that's not right' then found online support group and the truth!...overcome with inconceivable humiliation and outrage. 28 Sept 10 drug free ... daily psych and emotional torture beginning in the waking hours of the morning receding somewhat in the evening only to start up again the next day. 28 Sept 12 (24 months) Stabilizing (What an indescribable unimaginable non-functional nightmare). sleep issues start up at 3 yrs waking daily at 2am -4.30am), April 2016 return to sport for the first time since drug free, Sept 16 return to work on casual basis. 28 Sept 16 (6yrs drug free), still cant sleep with any regularity, pssd continues no sign of improvement, still feel Rip van Winkle-ish, brain fog still improving, psoriasis concerns.

“Paroxetine is not safe, it is not effective and it meets every known definition of addictive.” McLaren, N, (2016) 'Psychiatry as bullsh*t’ p55..."Psychiatry is stuffed full of 'deep nonsense' better known as bullsh*t." McLaren 2016
"Within the first week of when you go on an antidepressant you may have a sexual dysfunction, it can go on forever, often only appearing when you go off the drug ...its extraordinarily common" Healy 2015
