    Saw this on Drudge:

    STUDY: MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS OF PATIENTS ON ANTI-DEPRESSANTS NOT DEPRESSED

    study shows that more than two-thirds — some 69 percent – of patients using anti-depressants do not actually meet the criteria for depressive disorder.
    The study, which appears in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, finds that many individuals who are prescribed and take antidepressant medications may not actually have a depressive disorder, and that such drugs are often used by patients who do not meet the diagnostic criteria of depression.

    This does not surprise me.

    Not to mention that these drugs are known to cause violent and suicidal tendencies in "some" people. It's a big money making recipe for the next gun free zone massacre.

    They wanted to put me on "anti depressants" after my heart attack. I said wait a minute I'm still alive what's to be depressed about? Evidently they didn't notice I never lost my keen sense of humor through out the whole ordeal.
