What does “on medication” mean when people ascribe SSRIs the blame?
Does that mean they had a prescription?( that’s not the same as they’re taking their meds.)
It’s a chicken and the egg scenario. We’re they mentally ill before or after the drug was prescribed?
Were they taking their medication as prescribed?
I see the ‘rats making a 2-fer based on emotions: further advancing more socialized medicine under the guise of ‘free’ mental healthcare for all AND more restrictions on the 2nd Amendment.
Statists will try to label anyone who believes in a small federal government as “mentally ill”.
This story is pretty good for explaining how serotonin syndrome can happen in people taking SSRIs. I'm sorry if you don't like the NY Times, but its health & science sections were very good as long as they kept away from politics.
Complicating matters is that someone can get into almost the same trouble when they stop taking SSRIs. It's called SSRI withdrawal syndrome. It's also called SSRI discontinuation syndrome.
