Suicide Warning

Breaking news from Europe (today)

The European drug regulatory body (The European Medicines Agency) has warned that the products of Eli Lilly and Co and GlaxoSmithKline etc, products such as Paxil, Prozac, Ritalin, Zoloft and all the other SSRI's and SNRI's SHOULD NOT BE USED TO TREAT DEPRESSION IN CHILDREN BECAUSE OF THE RISK OF SUICIDE AND HOSTILITY.

Will this actually stop them being used? I truly do hope so. There has been enough destruction of young people's lives. Children and teenagers whose only crime was to be loud and noisy or upset about something... or maybe slow in class.

Can any single adult not remember being upset and depressed at times as a child? Being upset with the harsher aspects of life is a part of growing up. Trying to blot out such times with drugs will AT BEST only retard the development of the child.

Anti-depressants already carry a warning in the US of the increased risk of suicide... not that that stops them being used. Estimates are that over 10 million American children are being legally drugged daily. Let's hope that the Europeans have the good sense and decency to not continue down the US path with these horror drugs.

Drugging children with psychotropic drugs for the sole sake of profit is the ultimate, evil expression of the idea that children should be seen and not heard.

Good money for the pushers (psychs) and manufacturers (Big Pharma) if they can sleep at night.
