I'm sorry. That was an uncertain comment, because it's not always a scam.
I've met hundreds of people who went through hell trying to get rid of antidepressants that should never have been prescribed. I have worked with people who have been through normal human crises since 1983. And in many cases, I have seen the devastating effects of over-prescribing.
That's not to say that some people are not serious – and by the way, I've certainly had experiences in which I said, "I think you should see a psychiatrist." I can tell you the difference. One is, "I'm crying because my friend left," and one is someone who can not even look up. I understand the difference, and when someone shows certain symptoms, I'll be the first to say, "I think you should see a psychiatrist."
About antidepressants: "We are a depressive society"
At this time, we addressed Mrs. Williamson's comments on antidepressants and suicide, in particular one she made that day When designer Kate Spade killed herself, "How many public figures taking antidepressants have to hang themselves in front of the FDA is doing something, Big Pharma is doing what it knows, and the average person is falling for it? "There was no public evidence that Ms. Spade had taken antidepressants.
The Food and Drug Administration has for years indicated that certain types of it are affected by antidepressants may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts in people under 24 years. The warning instructs physicians to weigh this aside with the potential benefits of the medication and to closely monitor patients. However, studies also indicate that people over the age of 24 have no similar risk and that untreated depression itself is a risk factor for suicide.
When asked if she stood by her comment, Ms. Williamson paused a few seconds before answering: "Yes. What is not true in this statement? For what I say is the F.D.A. Big Pharma knows that. Intelligent people know that. "
