Here's an interesting Washington Post online article on the FDA withholding what anti-depressants can do to younger people (but it happened to ME and I'm 40!!!) :
Here's the 1st part of this article :

Makers Were Dissuaded From Labeling Drugs as Ineffective in Children

"The Food and Drug Administration has repeatedly urged antidepressant manufacturers not to disclose to physicians and the public that some clinical trials of the medications in children found the drugs were no better than sugar pills, according to documents and testimony released at a congressional hearing yesterday.
Regulators suppressed the negative information on the grounds that it might scare families and physicians away from the drugs, according to testimony by drug company executives. For at least three medications, they said, the FDA blocked the companies' plans to reveal the negative studies in drug labels, and in one case the agency reversed a manufacturer's decision to amend its drug label to say that the drug was associated in studies with increased hostility and suicidal thinking among children."
There's more of course. My experience : when I was 40 I took severla anti-depressants I got this way : suicidal ideation, etc. It left went I quit the pills, so don't try them if you're thinking of it and stop if you already are.
Those pills are dangerous-peligro!
