How exactly you expect to purge the user-lists of Paxil effectively by listing how bad it is for them is still a mystery to me, particularly since the reason people should be getting off Paxil isn’t simply because of side-effects but because it’s not actually helping their recovery. That’s another area you didn’t cover â€" how effective it is.

In fact, because the side-effects have so little to do with why these folks shouldn’t be taking it (I understand that “Look at what you’re doing to yourself†point, but it’s a tertiary jab), you run the risk of shaking people off that might need to stay on. Again, I think you’re overestimating the argument you offered in the article. I don’t think you’re entirely wrong in your general principle that society is over-medicated, I just don’t think you grasp it anywhere in your article.
