FDA Disclaimers

I have just received an email from the FDA informing me of its website page devoted to warnings about the dangers of antidepressant drugs.
http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/antidepressants/default.htm

In part: “Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asks manufacturers of all antidepressant drugs to include in their labeling a boxed warning and expanded warning statements that alert health care providers to an increased risk of suicidality (suicidal thinking and behavior) in children and adolescents being treated with these agents, and additional information about the results of pediatric studies.”

I sense that the FDA can smell the wind... and are slowly starting to distance themselves from the killing for profit schemes of Big Pharma and psychiatry. I think it might be wise if they break into a trot... that wind smells pretty bad.
