Did all of these shooters drink water? Quick, someone write an article that water causes people to become mass murderers.



Have you tried coming off them yet? If not your in for a great time. Oh and hows the libido?

^^^ Why should HorganIsMyHero come off SSRI medication if it is doing whats needed him/or her.

impo anyone who tells someone with mental illness issues to go off meds is an damn fool. If the meds are not working that's between patient & doctor treating that patient.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Commonly believed that all these drugs and most of the ailments they treat only work or exist on paper .

To explain you need to go back to the early days of shrinks .
At first they had ZERO respect from anyone and nobody cared what they thought.

Then all of a sudden one guy made a big push. He was gonna get all the quacks called doctors. Even though they treated no diseases and offered no cures . No treatments. Nothing but unconfirmed diagnoses and medication.
Shortly after making the quacks into doctors all the pharma companies began rebranding all sorts of meds as psychotropic meds. Some to disasterous results.
Anyways. Forward to today

We are still seeing the results of testing . All the shootings are exactly that.
Now the question for me is. Are the results as intended or are these the kids who go off the rails
Now they want to take our guns away . That would be just fine. Take em away from the criminals first . Ill gladly give u mine. "Charlie Daniels"

You have got to stand for something . Or you will fall for anything "Aaron Tippin"

Not commonly believed as there are too many commercials and reports regarding depression being successfully treated with medication.

Its a trial and error process with these meds. What works on one person might not work on another. Its a roll of the dice each time till the proper med and dosage is found. T

To say these meds arent dangerous and deadly is out right false.

Very true, for those who have found the ones that work or combination of. It is truly like finding the light at the end of pitch black tunnel (not my words but a friend who suffered for years with depression).

No ones telling anyone to come off meds. I simply asked if they evwr tried coming off them. So Im not sure why the confusion.

Yes these meds work great for some people but sometimes they stop working. Or the side effects such as lack of libido, weight gain, or drowsiness become to much so they decide to come off.

-Going off a psychiatric drug isn't too much of a problem as long as it's done slowly.
-Libido issues have largely been dealt with with the newer medications especially when the body has adjusted to the drugs

-I think you've been reading too many anti-psychiatrist websites and or believing stories from people who think psychiatrists are secretly demons

-Please do a simple Google search and learn what services psychiatrists offer. There's a whole health center downtown that largely has psychiatrists and other doctors / nurses helping people in various group sessions
