“What the psychiatrist then say… is… Well, it is important to give these drugs because they reduce the risk of suicide. [But] as far as I can see, this has NEVER been documented. Quite [to] the contrary,” says Prof. Peter Gøtzsche, MD, author of Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare.
“We know that these drugs INCREASE the risk of suicide in young people up to the age of 40 according to FDA data.
“And we don’t really know what they do above the age of 40 because the drug companies have CHEATED SO ENORMOUSLY in the randomized trials.
“So when the worst case, these drugs might increase the risk of suicide in all age groups.”
