I watched a programme last night.
It was one of those investigatory type programmes and this time their subject was antidepressants.
I’m a bit of an expert on these having been stuck on them for God knows how many years. I think I remember the original reason for being prescribed them but one of the glories of them is that they are extremely difficult to stop. So I just keep taking ’em as they do less damage that way.
The programme concentrated on SSRIs and in particular Prozac. It was not a very edifying programme. They mainly concentrated on the long term effects of SSRIs and the problems with withdrawal. Not only were the withdrawal symptoms rather nasty but they can in fact be permanent.
So the question arose as to whether Pharma knew of these side effects and the problems of withdrawal. The answer is yes and no. Initially they promised the world that quitting was easy – just stop taking them. However they were aware of side effects and even more important that they only had a marginal beneficial effect. Naturally the results of trials were run through mincing machines and .presto, results showed they were a miraculous cure and a panacea for all ills.
Many years later studies are being done on the long term effects and some of the results are not very pretty. In the meantime of course Big Pharma had been raking in billions every year on their “wonder drugs”.
The programme exposed a litany of false advertising, deliberate concealment of facts and cooking the numbers on a massive scale.
SSRIs are not the wonder drug they promised.
And then along comes the mRNA vaccine.
Another wonder drug with no studies on long term problems
Another exposé in a decade or two?
