I personally think that it is possible that the population is over medicated... However, I believe that meds are still necessary... I for instance, could not exist without meds... Its that simple for me personally... Your argument link about comparing those with depression who are medicated and non-medicated is not a simple comparision... often times the severity of the illness forces people to medicate.. so your comparision between the two groups is not necessarily fair because the 'medicated' group may suffer from a much more significiant illness... and with a more significant illness the probability of comorbid problems, like the ones you mentioned, rises...just some more thoughts... as u can tell, im a med fan... without lithium i would have committed suicide a long time ago..
