I am not a big medication person but when used properly the amount of people that benefit from SSRIs is far greater than those that are harmed or harm others. Like with anything they need to be used and prescribed properly which means not giving them to young children which is becoming all too common. Also, they are being used in place of therapy which is a bad idea as well. Btw, to a previous post, the brain is not fully developed until around the age of 25.
Any drug that has the effect of missing a dose that causes suicidal/Psychopathic thoughts probably isn't worth it.
