Research from Italy finds that though antidepressants have been shown to be effective in treating fibromyalgia in the short term, “in a small sample of women with fibromyalgia, after a year of observation, those who had followed a therapy with antidepressants experienced a worst impact of the disease on their daily lives. At the end of the trial the quality of life and the disability linked to bipolar symptoms were worse in the group treated with antidepressants.”
Carta, M., Ruggiero, V., Sancassiani, F., Cutrano, F., et al; The Use of Antidepressants in the Long-Term Treatment Should not Improve the Impact of Fibromyalgia on Quality of Life. Clinical Practice & Epidemiology in Mental Health. Online July 12, 2013. doi: 10.2174/1745017901309010120
Mania, suicide, violence, akathisia and a host of other lethal effects of so called antidepressants are listed in the Physician’s Desk Reference. It’s also been established by many experts that these poison drugs are no better than placebo for their stated purpose as “antidepressants,” and in fact, can make it much worse and even permanent.
Thus, I find this article disgusting and revolting for its fraudulent claims that those already suffering from fibromyalgia are then said to be suffering from the fraud fad bipolar disorder when they obviously had a typical reaction to these toxic, dangerous, useless drugs. What a bunch of heartless, lying and or incompetent frauds.
On the other hand, this article does serve as an excellent warning for anyone thinking of using these toxic, life destroying drugs for this or any other illness. Caveat Emptor!!
These toxic drugs are nothing but poison. Why do they insist on trying them out on everything? Useless poison pills.
