Good question. Suicide ideation is listed as a known side-effect though. Perhaps it exacerbates these things. Coming off them creates a problem too. I wonder if there has been any long term studies of using such drugs, as well as ritalin, on children or young teens whose brains are still forming? One thing that does need investigation is pharmaceutical firms covering up some things they did know and/or how the FDA approves them. Is there crony connections between the agency and these firms. Who gets money from these firms?
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
