Comment: I just read 5 of those SSRI stories. Not 1 gave a drug and dose.

(See in situ)


I just read 5 of those SSRI stories. Not 1 gave a drug and dose.

This SSRIstories web site gets posted over and over and over again, and I'm suspicious that I am the only one who is actually reading the anecdotes.

Seriously. They do not count as "evidence." They don't count as data. Some of them are pure speculation.

No proof anecdote #1: http://ssristories.com/show.php?item=2357

He cut himself before psychiatric treatment. Stopped taking Prozac several weeks before shooting.

No proof anecdote #2: http://ssristories.com/index.php

Article says he took "10X normal dose" but doesn't say WHICH DRUG. That's kind of an important detail, don't you think?

No proof anecdote #3: http://ssristories.com/index.php

Article said he was taking Prozac, but it also said he was depressed for years before treatment, he was active on Nazi web sites, and dressed in goth with red Devil Spikes. Did Prozac cause all of these behaviors?

No proof anecdote #4: http://ssristories.com/show.php?item=4698

No proof anecdote #5: http://ssristories.com/show.php?item=5227
