SSRI's (and psychiatric drugs in general) should be clearly labelled 'experimental' since they are all based on at best tentative and at worst totally debunked hypotheses about how people's brains work - a subject on which we don't know nearly as much we think we do. It is cruel and irresponsible to allow the aggressive marketing of unproven remedies, laden with both known and initially unknown to side-effects, to any population. It is even worse to allow them to be marketed to people whose judgement may well be impaired, or to be forced on anyone, no matter how impaired.
