I'm tired of doctors blaming everything on the condition itself. Sure it's possible, but, like me when you go on meds for one problem then suddenly a million others pop up that weren't there before you start to become suspicious. The doctors admit that they don't know exactly how these meds work yet they will never admit that these drugs can cause long term effects,

Anecdotal reports, are just that, anecdotal. But when every long term side effect is AUTOMATICALLY just passed off as the condition worsening, how on earth are these effects suppose to be documented. The side effects of these medications cause the exact same effects that depression causes. And because of that it's nearly impossible to prove any of this.

It is the patient's fault for not seeking medical care to treat the symptoms. I guarantee you that is their way out of it.

I know based on my experience and reading many others to corroborate it that ssri's did cause long term damage
