Long-term use of antidepressants turn a short-term illness into a chronic illness according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.
He noted since most people recover from depression on their own, the initial rationale for using drugs was to see if they could help people recover faster.
However, what doctors started noticing was that when depressed patients were given antidepressants, they were relapsing more frequently.
So the question became are these drugs turning a short-term illness into a chronic illness?
