Youth Suicides Increased As Antidepressant Use Fell

Quite a startling headling from the Washington Post.

Maybe we've all been wrong and anti-depressants are really a great source of help.

The full story can be read here

Once you have read the story you might want to learn that Thomas Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, who is quoted in the article as saying "We may have inadvertently created a problem by putting a 'black box' warning on medications that were useful." He added, "If the drugs were doing more harm than good, then the reduction in prescription rates should mean the risk of suicide should go way down, and it hasn't gone down at all -- it has gone up," may have more than one or two shared interests to be so one track minded.

Lets see who the National Institute of Mental Health's Corporate Partners are shall we:

Abbott Laboratories
Alamo Pharmaceuticals
AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company
Cyberonics, Inc.
Eli Lilly and Company
Forest Laboratories

Janssen Pharmaceutica
Magellan Health Services
Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc.
Pfizer, Inc.
Solvay Pharmaceuticals
WellPoint Health Networks
Wyeth Pharmaceuticals

Now correct me If I am wrong but don't these pharmaceutical companies manufacture anti-depressants?

Over to you Mr Insel
