I agree with Janine, in that most of the article raises good questions and gives some wise advice. I think we are far too cavalier in how we diagnose depression, and we have no idea what the long-term ramifications of these meds are. I posted an article not long ago citing increased cancer risks, especially breast cancer, amongst users of antidepressants. They have definite effects on hormones. Specifically, men have a difficult time becoming aroused on SSRIs becuase they increase prolactin levels in men, which is a hormone women need for lactation. But for the article to raise questions about whether organic brain disorders even exist, makes me think they've got their eyes shut too. Schizophrenics suffer brain atrophy over time. Should we stop giving epileptics their epilepsy medicine, just becuase we dont know its mechanism of action in the brain? Of course not. Seizures kill. Should doctors hand out epilepsy medicines whenever their patients feel twitchy? Heck no. And they should be committed to being the best doctors they can be when a patient feels drained and lethargic. They should try to elucidiate the causes and factors affecting their patient's mood. Stress? Toxins? Food allergies? Lack of exercise? Hypothyroidism? Hypoandrogenism? The root of poor health care is, in my mind, a sign of moral apathy in society in general. Doctors arent always doctors because they care - sometimes they're doctors becaue of the money. So quick fixes become more, and more, and more common. But the pendulum only swings so far in one direction. Things are bound to change.
