“The benefits of drugs for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are also uncertain.

PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS

Getting rid of all antidepressants would improve health, lengthen life says Prof. Peter Gotzsche MD

“Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm—by dropping all antidepressants, ADHD drugs, and dementia drugs (as the small effects are probably the result of unblinding bias) and using only a fraction of the antipsychotics and benzodiazepines we currently use,” writes Prof. Peter Gøtzsche, MD.
    “This would lead to healthier and more long lived populations.
    “Because psychotropic drugs are immensely harmful when used long term, they should almost exclusively be used in acute situations and always with a firm plan for tapering off, which can be difficult for many patients.
    “We need new guidelines to reflect this.”
