The Guardian - UK Newspaper - Request Stories on SSRI use

Recommended Posts

Marmite

Hi everyone,

 

We need your input for a national newspaper article on the long term effects of SSRI's.!!!!

 

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/may/06/long-term-user-antidepressants-tell-experiences

 

We are seeking accounts of long term use and any symptoms that people have encountered as a result of this.  Symptoms "may" include PSSD, Fibromyalgia, Tingling / pain / numbness, sensory disturbances (ears, eyes, touch), brain symptoms, general nervous system issues, movement disorders, cardiovascular issues / arrhythmia to name some of the symptoms which people have mentioned in the past.

 

You can submit an anonymous or named account of your symptoms via the link and questionnaire in the article. You don't have to be named if you don't want to be.

 

The request for stories has arisen from an article which was recently published and which Professor David Healy and Joanna Moncrieff contributed to.  The British Medical Association research into dependency and withdrawal from psycho-active drugs which was published in October 2014 is also cited.   

 

The previous article can be found here: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/may/06/dont-know-who-am-antidepressant-long-term-use

 

Please contribute - the results of this national newspaper request for stories could drive research into the long term effects of antidepressants !
