Well, I think with some people ADs do more harm than good, in others they do more good than harm, in others they are miracles, and in others they cause suicide.

It is nice to see researchers taking a look at this topic though. Because those of us who have experienced what might be called a post-ssri syndrome which is either very long lasting or permanent, we know the meds changed something in a profound way that when all was said and done did more harm than good. Caused more harm that didn't previously exist, on top of the already existing harm. Just sort of observing over the years comments from people on web forums the ssris are almost always the guilty ones when this happens. That's one of the reasons I favor balanced approaches that include equal amounts of norepinephrine compared to serotonin because for some reason that bizarre stuff is side stepped that way.

But anyway, I think we as patients already know a lot more than the researchers do because we are on the front lines battling for our lives and this stuff just isn't our career or our interest or whatever it's maybe the biggest struggle of our lives and it matters a lot. We see stuff before they do. We solve problems, sometimes, before they do. I'm just glad to see some of them asking important questions.
