Out of Control Use of Anti-Depressants in the UK
The Guardian reports that anti-depressant use is up 25% in the UK, with 43.4 million prescriptions.
Science Daily reports 46 million prescriptions for anti-depressants meds in the UK.
Google Public Data shows the population of the United Kingdom rounding to 63 million.
We have to account for the fact that each person may receive more than one prescription for anti-depressants. Still, these numbers are stupendous.
Dr. Desmond Spence of Barclay Medical Centre, suggests that “we use antidepressants too easily, for too long, and that they are effective for few people (if at all).”
He also argues that the current definition of clinical depression – consisting of two weeks of low mood, even after bereavement – is too loose, causing widespread “medicalisation.”
Interestingly, Dr. Spence also points out that 75% of those who create these loose definitions have links to pharmaceutical companies. Ouch.
The UK’s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) does not support the use of anti-depressant medication in mild depression, nor necessarily as first line treatment of moderate depression. Instead, they recommend talk therapy.
The UK does not appear all that interested in talking through their emotional difficulties as a first line of defense against emotional angst. I could be wrong.
1. Studies in numerous countries reveal that between 10% and 25% of psychiatrists and psychologists admit to sexually abusing their patients.

3. The so-called ethics system used by psychiatrists has been universally attacked as soft and inadequate.
4. A 1997 Canadian study of psychiatrists revealed that 10% admitted to sexually abusing theirs patients; 80% of those are repeat offenders.

“We found out that he gets paid to speak for almost every drug company out there, even if the drugs are competitors. He is out to make the money and it is apparent the way patients are herded through the practice with no regard for the patient’s needs.
