Antidepressants come under more fire!

June 29th, 2015

There is more and more information becoming available from credible sources, saying that antidepressants are dangerous, of very little benefit and not worth taking the risk.

Dr Peter Gotzsche is a prominent figure in terms of medical information.  He is the director of the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark, a government funded organisation.  In Medicine, Cochrane is a name associated with independent evaluation of medical literature, in contrast to the all too common sources which are funded and influenced by multinational pharmaceutical companies, which tend to promote their own interests.  Peter’s professional profile is here – http://www.cochrane.dk/about/profiles/pcg-profile.htm

In early 2015 Peter was talking in Australia and his lecture was recorded.  The lecture is 60 minutes long, and provides excellent information.  The remaining time is question and answer, and adds very little.  Caution: if anyone is on antidepressant information and wants to come off the medication, please do so only under the care of a doctor who is willing to supervise the process.

A second lecture, offering more valuable information, is by Professor Irving Kirsch, who wrote a book called “The Emperor’s New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth.”  I reviewed that book on my site here.  His lecture on Youtube is a quicker way to gain much of the material in the book.  The lecture is 54 minutes followed by some Questions and Answers.

    THINK DIFFERENTLY

    PROBLEMS PERSIST BECAUSE THE SAME OLD THINKING IS USED

    SOLUTIONS REQUIRE NEW THINKING
