A recent article on the CNN Health web page asked the question, Is it OK to be on antidepressants for years?
The answer, given by a psychiatrist, should embarrass those that manufacture these drugs, it should embarrass those that regulate these drugs. It should embarrass those that continue to prescribe these drugs.
Dr. Charles Raison, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Emory University, and an expert in the mind-body connection for health.
Ten years ago my answer to this question would have been, "Certainly not."
A year ago my answer would have been, "Almost certainly not."
Now, unfortunately, the most honest answer I can give you is, "I'm not sure."
Coming from a guy who has treated thousands of people over the years with antidepressants, I have to admit that my uncertainty both shocks and distresses me.
I should probably get over my sense of shock. One of the glories of science is that it keeps moving forward, and as it does so, it usually sweeps old certainties into the dustbin.
Psychiatry's commitment to the unqualified goodness of antidepressants is one of those old certainties. That I'm distressed is understandable.

If you put all the pieces of the jigsaw together, the picture becomes so much clearer folks.
