As to my knowledge, coming off them is dangerous too.
I am very bothered by the idea of putting young people on antidepressants. As I understand the way that they function, the pills mask the negative emotions or emotional states. I know that young adulthood is tough. But I think masking the rough stuff keeps them from having a chance to deal with it and mature.
