Claiming GP’s have just been mislead by the “flawed theories” of psychiatry is, to me at least, a very naive statement (given that most of the prescriptions for antidepressants are from GP’s). I’m not going to let GP’s off the hook that easily. You could make the same argument for every pharmaceutical drug they (rightly or wrongly) prescribe. Which, to be honest, is their main business. GP’s, at least in my country, make a bundle each year on the flu vaccine. I suppose, they are also innocent in that respect. Another highly controversial form of medical intervention. The debate largely fueled by money interests. The GP’s get their annual cut, and don’t have to do anything except to keep their mouth shut. If you have a urinary infection, the GP will try at least 2 antibiotics before culturing the urine to see which bacteria is causing the infection. The logic being based on statistical probability. Is that science?
