Professor Peter Gøtzsche has today published an article in The Lancet entitled: ‘Why I think antidepressants cause more harm than good’.

The whole process of having to subscribe to the Lancet is laborious.
“They also talk about anti-psychiatry, anti-capitalism, and a conspiracy theory. This is the language of people who are short of arguments.”
Perhaps Nutt et al should try these drugs themselves.
