And BTW, if antidepressants work so great, why are y'all here?

I am here certainly to know about the experiences of other people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses and learn about the effectiveness of different treatments.I would not have come here,had i known that placebo works as well as antidepressants.

You can get an idea of the gravity of the placebo effect by typing in antidepressant + placebo into your favorite search engine.

I have tried this search before and i am sure many of us have tried it.But,previously i did not know the method of segregating "decent" sites from "biased" sites.

Lastly the revolutionary findings like the similarities between suicide and stock market crash should be presented to the entire world and do not deserve to be known by only people visiting such sites.I think this is sufficient for nobel committee to give nobel prize both in medicine and economy for the same theory which has not happend before in 107 years of nobel history.But,there are some issues here too.

1.FDA and health authorities around the world are cheating people by not banning the antidepressants. If placebo is able to give same benefits with out giving any side effects,then health authorities should make it clear to people not to waste their money for the benefits of few pharma companies.

2. There are going to be some negetive repurcussions for the world economy if facts have proved that antidepressants are no better then placebo.The reason is that millions of employees,share holders and other stake holders of giant phrama companies around the globe would be in miserable conditions due to closure of these companies. And one can only imagine the condition of pdoctors around the world because they would be left with no option but to wonder in the streets with begging bowl in their hands to make their ends meet.

I would request everybody not to consider this post sarcastic because this is written out of genuine appreciation and respect.Thanks.
