3/29/2001 – Celexa recommended for elderly

This is beyond sickening! Celexa has the strongest effect upon serotonin
reuptake as any of the other SSRIs and is therefore, the most dangerous in
this group of serotonergic drugs. To encourage it for use in the elderly,
some of the most vulnerable in our society, for minor depression is
unconscionable!

Now that the ad has run in Medscape encouraging doctors to prescribe it (as
if they needed any encouragement in their mass drugging of America!) you may
want to begin checking the obituaries for large numbers of the elderly dying.
Of course it will save the government lots of $$$ in Social Security payments!

Celexa Treatment of Minor Depression in the Elderly

More elderly express symptoms of minor depression than
major depression. Data presented at the American Association
for Geriatric Psychiatry suggest that Celexa is an effective,
well-tolerated, and safe treatment for minor depression in
elderly individuals.
