I have a little problem. I love my country (Ireland) but have to admit that we Irish have a tendancy to accept our fate, no matter what. Corrupt policitions, the Catholic Church and our ‘key opinion leaders’ have been allowed to cause havoc on our lovely Emerald Isle for centuries. My main issue is our ‘leading’ psychiatrists who have and still are denying that antidepressants can cause suicide, despite the regulators and drug companies having to admit that they do.
I have already published a video where UCD psychiatrist Patricia Casey denies that antidepressants can cause suicide. As you know she has already sent me two solicitors letters (one and two) so here’s my problem; do I stop writing about what I believe in, that these drugs are killing people or do I say “póg mo thóin” and keep trying to warn the unsuspecting public? She certainly is not on her own and it seems that the College of Psychiatry of Ireland collectively believe that these drugs do not cause suicide. This is wrong on so many levels.
The EMA have warned that these drugs can increase the risk of suicide in under 25’s. The FDA added a black-box warning to all antidepressants because of the increased risk of suicide and yet our Irish psychiatrists continue to oppose the medicines regulators. This has got to stop. People are dying because of their ‘failure to warn’. Prof Casey was present at Shane’s Inquest and also another mans, who were both (co-incidentally or not) taking Lundbeck’s drug. She sure does a lot of work for Lundbeck.
AC: Do you believe that citalopram can cause somebody who would not otherwise take their own life to do so?
