These drugs are not safe and have not been on the market long enough to provide sufficient long term studies regarding their effects. These drugs do cause addiction, however most “doctors” would call this ‘dependence’ because you do not have to take an increasing dose over time. (Apparently, they are completely fine with you being addicted to the same amount of any given drug on a daily basis). Over half of the people that commit suicide in the United States are prescribed to psychotropic drugs. (i.e.: Paxil (Paroxetine), Zoloft (Sertraline), Prozac, Wellbutrin (Bupropion), Effexor, Seroquil, Ultram (Tramadol), etc.)
