1) The group that did not take antidepressants long term had demographics associated with worse health outcomes. Some example’s being they were poorer, less likely to be married, less likely to have health insurance and more likely to be minorities. 2) The group that did not take antidepressants had worse starting baseline scores. It appears psychiatrists don’t even bother reading studies and instead just copy and paste “people off drugs weren’t as sick.” That or they do read them and are lying for self gain. In studies on every other medical modality people who comply have better outcomes —not counting any medicinal effects— compared to people who do not. That psych thinks parading out that poor people who don’t follow health advice are inheritantly always healthier and better off than richer people who follow health advice is a confession. Psych drugs are so damaging that they reverse the health benefits of wealth. Some aspects of this study bias the results in favor of antidepressants. This study excludes all the people killed from and institutionalized from the drugs. Imagine someone saying alcohol addiction wasn’t that bad because a study on the negative effects of alcohol did not include anyone who died from alcohol related causes.
