“What do you do with a specialty [psychiatry] that to some extent, live on a lie? I’ve heard so many psychiatrists, also professors, say that starting an antidepressant is like giving insulin to a diabetic, which is completely wrong, and yet they still say this nonsense…,” says Prof. Peter Gøtzsche, MD, author of Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare.
“The hypothesis about [depression being caused by a serotonin deficiency] is stone dead.
“What these drugs do is they do NOT correct a chemical imbalance.
“That’s another lie that psychiatrists love, that you have a chemical imbalance like a diabetic that lacks insulin…
“It’s a LIE.”
“They are CREATING a chemical imbalance.
“And it is exactly for this reason that it is DIFFICULT for patients to stop [these drugs] after 2 or 3 months.”
