Problem is, Martin, that doctors prescribe these drugs based on information from drug companies. Drug companies want profits, and how the drugs interact with various individuals differs greatly, especially in the area of those drugs used to treat depression.
A case in point is thalidomide. Doctors prescribed it based on information provided by a drug company. We know the results. Just because a medical doctor prescribes a drug does not make the drug necessarily safe for use.
