The Drugs Don’t Work


It’s a common misconception that anti-depressant drugs are actually completely effective and safe.


Neither is of these ‘facts’ are true in any way.


Take the report in today’s Irish Independent which states that –


“From January to July 2016 alone, there were 1,478 under-16s on the HSE records for anti-depressants.”


Why they only cite figures from the first half of the year is unclear as I would suspect that more are prescribed in the latter months of the year as the nights darken, Christmas and New Year approach and exam pressure starts to mount on students.


The fact that under 16’s are on the drugs should be of great concern to everyone as the illusion of mental illness amongst ordinary children is expanded to facilitate medication on spurious afflictions such as ADHD which many assert as a fake condition.


When I was young man there was never any mention of children with mental illness or some form of hyperactivity disorder. Young boys were simply behaving as young boys had always behaved; excitable, hyperactive in some cases, aggressive, boisterous etc… There was never any call for psychiatric assessment or any other intervention other than fathers giving them a sore arse occasionally if they overstepped what was acceptable behaviour within society at the time.


But of course, times change and instead of a smacked bottom, society in the form of Big Pharma and the illusionary mental illness freak show we see today, deems it necessary to medicate anyone suspected of being ‘abnormal’; in other words being ordinary active, inquisitive, children who generally run around playing and causing endless mayhem for parents… Just like I and many others my age did when we were children. I have the memories of many a sore rear end to prove it.
