I lost my son, Jeff, (17) in Feb of 1999 due to major depression (suicide). He was on Zoloft, and it made it worse, I am certain. God, I miss my son! I wish the FDA would get it's act together regarding anti-depressants.
Prayer for the both of you. Condolences.
I'm sorry about your loss.
I've been on anti-depressents for many years myself and it's hard to decide if I'm better off on the meds than off them.
My heart goes out to you. Having two little girls I can't comprehend how you feel.
However that doesn't matter to these people. There is too much money in it for them to worry about little things - like your son. These bastards in the FDA are setting themselves up for cushy jobs at Eli-Lilly etc after they oversee the drugs the same companies put out. A personal experience with a surgical tool company opened my eyes to the fact that there are people who will sit in an office and let people get blinded, maimed or killed for a decent salary. It was an ugly revelation.
Trial lawyers and punitive damages do have a place. The corporate veil for some circumstances has to be limited.
God Bless You.
It's true without a doubt. I was having some stress issues at work. Like any law abiding person; I go to the doctor for some help. He gives me Zoloft. It helped for a couple of months, but after about three months I literally felt like killing myself sometimes. Something as little as a small disagreement with my with would trigger such emotions.
I stopped taking it after realizing that certainly wasn't normal. I haven't felt like that since. They need to pull that junk from the pharmacies. By the way, I went back to the doc and he didn't want me to stop taking it, even after telling him about it. He said I needed to give it more time to "work".
I am so sorry for your loss. God bless you and your family.
