Coming To Their Senses In Britain Re Prozac

At http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4071145.stm you can find out about Britain's new guidelines regarding prescription of antidepressants, such as Prozac, Paxil and others. Acknowledging the tendency for antidepressants to cause suicide, the new guidelines say, "The group of people who will benefit from these drugs is smaller than some GPs think."

They also recommend great care when stopping the drugs, because of the side effects of doing so. (A side trip to any on-line user support chat site will confirm this. The sites for users of Paxil will fill anyone with horror. Talk about addictive drugs; some of the Paxil stories sound like someone trying to get off heroin.)

This is just another in an accelerating chain of evidences that these insanity-causing drugs are being found out. Sell your stock in Eli Lilly and Glaxo Smith Kline short. They will be in a lot of trouble in a few years. This observer's opinion and prediction is there will be criminal indictments coming with the civil problems, for companies that have caused murders and suicides by suppressing evidence that the drugs fuel such urges in many people.
