Antidepressants Cause Suicide

Well, I guess it's better than nothing. The FDA has finally decided to force antidepressant manufacturers to put a "black box" warning on them to say that they cause suicide in children. The fact that Britain, Ireland, Canada and lots of other countries have banned them outright for use by children just goes to prove how powerful the pharmaceutical companies are in the US.

Also of note is the fact that in the UK these drugs are being investigated because there is plenty of evidence that they cause suicide in older people too.

It took 30 years of miscarriages before DES was finally taken off the market. How many more deaths will it take before these dangerous mind altering drugs called antidepressants are also banned?
