Overview

Roughly twenty-eight million Americans (one in every ten) have taken an antidepressant. Meanwhile, critics are speaking out against these medications, filling the media with sensationalized stories, half-truths, and purposeful misrepresentations of the facts. What exactly are the controversies surrounding antidepressants? What events triggered them? Who was (and is) making waves, and with whom are they fighting? How has the media impacted the debate? Have governments gotten involved, and if so, what legislation, if any, is impacting peoples' use of these drugs? Movie stars and other celebrities have jumped into this discussion. It seems that everyone has an opinion these days, but opinions are not necessarily truth.This book attempts to clarify the facts concerning antidepressants, and in so doing, answer the question: Are antidepressants the cure-alls many believe they are, or are they unnatural poisons killing innocent victims?
