This is what I said...
“Obamacare is not going to treat mild depression. That is all this report is about.
Those drugs are going no where. They are way too valuable in treating other disorders.”
This is what you responded...
“Sorry all, but in 86% of cases, those on sugar pills got just as well on those on SSRIs.
Yes, your friend or you got well, but it wasn’t the pill! “
In a really big and obnoxious font.
First of all, it wasn’t me nor a “friend”. I spent a good amount of my life as an Office Manager for the Head Psychiatrist of a large hospital. Our practice had two doctors and three therapists. I saw many people treated for disorders other than depression who did marvelously some of these meds.
Second, Wellbutrin is NOT an SSRI, Secondary Serotonin Reuptake inhibitor. It is a dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. They work on different chemicals in the brain and are not the same thing.
Soooooo, this report by C-BS is BS. If YOU want to do a happy dance about it, fine. Personally, I take everything that C-BS puts out with a grain of salt and anything about health, all I can say is “watch the other hand”.
