More than 1 in 10 in U.S. take antidepressants

Eleven percent of Americans over age 12 take antidepressants according to a report released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control.  The study, compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics, looked at data from 2005 to 2008.  Among the other key findings:

  • Women are two-and-a-half times more likely to take antidepressants than men.
  • People over 40 are more likely to take antidepressants than younger people.
  • Non-Hispanic whites are more likely to take antidepressants than minorities.

But it was another finding that surprised lead study author, Laura Pratt, an epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control.  Only one-third of people with severe depression take antidepressants.  "That means many people with severe depression are not getting treated," says Pratt.

Still the rate of antidepressant use has skyrocketed nearly 400% in the United States since the late 1980s when the first SSRI's went on the market.  "There is lots of evidence that the rates of depression have doubled from the late 1990s to the late 2000s," says Dr. Charles Raison, CNNHealth.com's mental health expert and associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Arizona School of Medicine.  Raison says that while the precise reasons for the uptick in depression are unclear,  there is evidence to suggest poor diets and lack of aerobic exercise may play a pivotal role.  "We know obesity is a risk factor for depression," says Raison.  He also points to studies that suggest eating processed food and social isolation can lead to depression.

Experts say this study also shows more people are taking their mental health more seriously and that the stigma surrounding treating diseases like depression is going away.  "If life is like walking on a tightrope, antidepressants are like a net," he says.  "They really work when you are taking them."

    Like I said it is a War here with all this cover-up doctor stuff they cover for each other and then all the patients end up dead
    this place Towson , Md. has huge problems that go way way way back to something nobody probably wants to know really bad place if you kno w what I mean......

    for example the presence of the BIBLE just the presence of that thing kills people here because it is so ignorant here.

    Imagine you are an American Indian just the vile presence of the Bible means extermniation of Millions of american Indians.

    While being overdosed in a Christian Hospital I was thinking about that. I deal in pure math not mythical BS from another group.

    A female doctor gives me Effexor XR 150

    I undergo surgery foot surgery and inform the surgeon of my pill status, other doctor says nothing about Effexor she was wrong.

    Now after a couple of years I stsrt to get weird headaches original doctor give some SSRI crap mizitrine or something it was a sample med. I look at it and I do not like the contradicted. See i use to sail in very bad conditions with people lives at stake to win sail boat races. I do not deal with words contradicted in a Huge Thunder storm on the bay.

    Anyway I did not take. Then I had a really really huge headache and decided i should go to er and Picked GBMC. my life has never been the same.

    do not take these pills they are a racket. I never needed them i started in the winter i said i felt little not alot depressed first of all Effexor was totally wrong or she could have given me 37.5 ( see the joke) or 25 (get the joke) or 12.5 (get the joke)

    or just a simple 1mg ( do really get the joke) the doctors are THE JOKE not you.

    I am like the FBI agent John P. O'Neill of 3 ( actually 5) hospitals in Towson , Md. and some other places. If you like puzzles
    there are 3 Hospitals with Regular University in between them ( oh how smart). Now they play all kind of games so the hospitals don't get sued I mean all kind s of stuff year. Like third world country stuff all kind of games it is a very petty place.

    So get a Map and you will notice GBMC connected to Sheppard Pratt (which is under international law not a hospital) here comes the nooses and St. Joseph a contained unit with really old and crappy equipment in the basement ( there own set of skeletons).

    Quite a neat puzzle. 3 Hospitals or 2 actually and sheppard pratt (you are done).

    There is another hospital where because a handful of stinink psychiatrists say you are crazy people that need real doctors like specialists get no healthcare at all. In that hospital I refuse some vile pill and sat there for a week an observed this stuff it was unbelievable. people around me were sick like really sick but because they were considered 3 class people they were denied stuff right in the hospital. While a bunch of arrogant young doctors in pretty white coats had a Party in the outdoor area sponsorored by some pill company. I had liver damage from Effexor I said something and the intern said like nothing no tests nothing. I am not kidding. Oh I got in that shrink palace because somebody said I was talking too loud. So 3 HUGE cops I mean HUGE monster cops show up with HUGE GUNS and bats and all kinds of crap me I am a cripple a little cripple with a liver that hurts and they "put" me in a PADDY wagon. Thus I became FBI agent John P. O'Neill investigating shrink palaces not on purpose but because baltimore has serious issues very, very, very close to a 4th world place.

    now if your in towson or driving by and you need a shrink palace i would suggest St. Joseph accept for the fact you have to bow down to some obscure saint that you do not believe in like it can't be Saint Ondine or something but anyway they don't bible thump too much they do teach you paint and do art work and the food was better and it was more gentile like. The machine in the basement were weird but Sheppard Pratt was horrible with nothing to do. Now though Sheppard Pratt says it has TMS which means all the years of pills was a fraud thus they have basically inplicated themselves in the BIGGEST FRAUD in the History Of Medicine.........................like a no brainer get as much money as you can and become undepressed.

    In 2009 there was a ER Doctor at GBMC who can ruin your life. I went through the withdrawal from effexor and felt better and could have gone home. But this doctor decided to play a game and put me into Sheppard Pratt where I was attcked with lots of pills. In sheppard pratt i could not talk again. At GBMC ER after the weird scene I could talk and felt better and laughed about what had happened the doctor said it was too much coffee not the effexor see how the doctor is trained to protect the other doctor and the med. It is true totally. i have been hospitalized many times since that first sheppard pratt experience.

    as you can tell i amtrying to destroy stupid psychist doctors forever and hope they die real soon. Really they need to die as soon aspossible like now.

    anyway there is no such thing as a reuptake inhibitor and for fun ask your doctor to draw one. it does not exist what really happens is the nerve ending becomes altered somewhat it may or may not return to normal. Doctors are actually killing their patients for money really they are.
    Now there has always been a certain type of doctor not a christian type that has done this for 100 years.

    Now this group has attacked the east asian and the TT variant gene this group will not win and maybe be irradicated finally.

    remember around here the Bible thumper thumped before and well alot less thumped after WWI. alot of Christian types fought christian types in WWI while a very small super rich banking family financed both sides of the war.

    For a dollar 100 of millions of christians killed eachother while several small super rich banking families ran the whole disgusting show for them it was called theathre. it was a movie what the christians kill eachother.

    Burn your bible and think.

    with several different people. Why here comes Stevie Ray vaughn. you know what SRV means it means it is Happy Time.

    Now don't forget get off the SSRIs and SNRIs and think about other ways to get rid of hostility and focus that anger at
    well people that make such bad pills and the doctors that well give pills like that to people and especially to people that make pills like that. It is your liver that is being destroyed. never forget the POWER that a small and useless country has over the USA everyday.

    Now at & bells every day the USS Liberty must be remembered because Jesus the Lord of Hosts say that is true and clear of the Purest Light.

    And everyday a person in a mental hospital some where especially in baltimore should be visited and the Doctor there in charge should be asked the question how is the Liver doing of all the patients the EXACT liver enzyme count to the EXACT Number to the Highest degree like the EXACT number and that liver enzyme number must be checked by 3 International doctors to determine if a Psychiatrist will be allowed to live one more day. And now we have pure and clear protection of the people with "mental issues". You know to establish pre meditated or pre-medicated MURDER 1.

    Now every doctor involved in psychiatric things is going to "feel" funny. Becuase the POWER of Lord Jesus Christ will come upon them and Lord jesus Christ will WATCH them from above and from Satellites and they will know that they are being Watched. Because this is what Jesus does to Psychiatrists. Like in every store and everywhere all S "shrinks " will be watched even in the Woods all the squirrels will watch them and the squirrels will talk about them and the birds too forever and they may get mad at them so hey better watch out and they better >>> well you know

    In sheppard pratt hospital the doctors pick a pill out of thin air and give it to people based on what ?

    They also do this really bad at Union Memeorial Hospital that place is really really bad almost worse than sheppart pratt.

    St. joseph is a little better because they teach you art. But the doctors there 50/50. The head shrink tried to give me lexapro because some relative of his sells the crap. I did not take that.

    At Sheppard Pratt hospital there are no rules of conduct. the doctors stick whatever pill they want into the patienst and watch what happens. When the international doctor police arrive (since the justice system here is beyond on joke 4 world country)
    the nerve of any government official in the usa to comment on anybody else in the world is a joke.

    Right here in sheooard pratt in Towson, md. human experimention going on right now. But they have sheppard pratt police to protect the doctors not the patients.

    now through the spirit of jesus every squirrel and chipmunk and raven and other animals have been enlisted to guard the payient's spirit. Especially dogs , so eevn though you may feel afraid of the psychiatrist do not fear as the dogs and cats and rabbits will help to protect you and even mosquitoes as this is what jesus wants. Do not fear.

    Listen if your in the cone of death in Towson, Maryland you must be very careful as to what hospital you end up in. Oh and in the city of baltimore Union Memorial. You can be put in there and sit there for 10 days and nothing will be done. They may check your blood once but anything else is not done because you are considered a "mental" case by the stupidest people you have ever met including the doctors and everyother dumbdown useless hospital time wasting no nothing.

    oh but they have time for the young white coat prettty doctors to have a party in the outdoor area sponsored by a pill company while i was there my ficking liver or something hurt but nobody could care most the patients i was with had all kinds of actual physical problems including diabetes but nobody cared.

    it took awhile and i had to search and search and wiki was very helpful plus you must have some understanding of what you read. But it seams as if most SSRIs and SNRIs are more or less derivatives of nazi work pills. Apperently nazi germany was pilling both workers and civilians and soldiers much like the usa is today.

    Much of the usa is being pilled by the illuminati who are more or less extremely rich people. this group of americans? makes huge fortunes eliminating you and your family sort of.

    If you really study WW 1 you will see what the agenda was , who profited and that system is still in place to some extant.
    but this is the creepy part they rigged it that few people world be left connected to ww 1.

    The illuminati are beyond sinister they also operated in the USSR. They are not christians or arabs

They make fortunes and tell everybody how great they are and inflate their egoes like a tire. and people bow down to their knowledge. Sheppard Pratt hospital is a vicious place really most people come out damaged for life by the use of extremely strong pills which do brain damage.
    These doctors are trecherous and they have media back-up all friends and crap especially in baltimore because it is stikin 9/11 corrupt like unbelievable crap here. oh yea but the FBI has time to bother me about nothing but paper stuff while that crap is going on at sheppard pratt hospital are you kidding.

    I think that has happened alot. It is not a true Hopsital under International law it does not qualify as a hospital. It is all a lie.
    If you get really sick and a doctor can be found they send you back to GBMC. It is a total racket. Now look at some key
    "Playas" the religion of these doctors and baltimore and all kinds of stinkin corruption here for like 40 years.

    It is a religious war of sorts...... but christians being christians in baltimore not too smart about all this Too bad.

    anyway stay far away from here , if you get sick you could end up in sheppard pratt or something and they may do stuff to you.

    Oh and the doctors here like to forget about checking your liver while giving you lots of expensive 'happy pills' for some reason
    The Doctors of the great med schools do not check your liver enzymes oh they forgot . oh yea they forgot but they have time to tell you about how great they are and write books and give interviews and go to lectures and the patients livers are rotting out back at sheppard.

    yes as the DC people plotted the Course of the death ship america for the Effexorated and all people on SSRIs and SNRIs as they were prepared for the Big Event 9/11 so when people got a little freaked out the Illuminati was well stocked with death pills.
    The American illuminati with the help of israel are something to behold. It is all a big game show. most aquarius types know this. it is a plotted out game that started at the beginning of WW I in 1913.

    really WW 1 would still be going on and almost all christians would be dead in both europe and america. all dead but the choctaw stopped it not the bible. it is true.

    oh 11-11-1918 oh yea 9-11-2001 gee ain't that somethin.

    anyway if you get some of that israeli effexor that your beloved US politians think is so great have fun you may die off sooner than expected.

    In some cases in america no healthcare is better but that is so american the constant guessing game.

    now we are dealing with the speed issue. The best american war gamers must find the lost codes of the USS Liberty.

    The rabbit hop ( grace hopper) knows that it can be leaped frog thus putting that other vile enemy at a huge disadvantage.

    the game can be played in baltimore county actually. things dissappeared south of B. County but there may be left over things

    now don't worry those people at the FDA really care about you (sure) like they really don't but they really do care about the billionaires who get rich off these pills they love them the average person they do not care really they don't. they are very elite and very important and think they are the greatest people in the world they have huge egoes that is all huge egoes and their super rich little group but sometimes even they try to kill each other off for the huge fortunes.
