Since you are a man of papers you'll know that risk of relapse rates in people with affective disorders is high: 50% after a second episode. 80-90% after a third, off medication. To speculate whether they changed you for the worse in adolescence is retrogressive and contrary to any doctrine that exemplifying wellness and growth, and since i imagine you were not put on them without good reason, analytically illegitimate.

More than anything what does come across in this and other similar posts is your particular dislike for/dissatisfaction with this class of drugs. Citing examples of their potential dangers might help lessen the doom-laden resonance they give off which i only hope isn't stopping somebody from taking their prozac.

I do think they are flawed. I am angry everyday at wondering whether i continue to feel the full range of emotions i felt before becoming depressed, but this is an imperfect world full of uncertainties. In my experience taking cipralex everyday is preferable to wanting more than anything not to exist.
