Why did people make up a drug for a made up disease?
“You don't get rich making a drug. If you want to get rich, you make a disease.” ~ L. Ron Hubbard
>>10289175>>10289189I think inhabiting the same Earth as people like OP is reason enough for these drugs
>>10289175prozac straightened me out almost immediately
I was against them for a decade. Now on them. Saved my life
>>10289175What do you consider a disease?
for dumb people talk shit about it bc if they don't see, it possibly doesn't exist nah?
>>10289175I'm gonna give you a serious answer.The placebo effect is real.
>>10289423It's all placebo, it's impossible that some subpopulation with certain genetics might actually benefit?
>>10289175Those are for cats.
>>10289175Depression isnt made up it is a side effect to modern society and shit diet, not struggling to find resources to survive 12 hours a day along with breaking up our social pack system has thrown people's minds out of correct function
>>10289423Brain visibly changes structure 3h after taking lexapro. Does not on any of the placebo groups.
>>10289175I hate the fact that there are subjects in which /sci/ is literally /x/-tier. Depression isn't a made-up disease and antidepressants actually work. The problem you have about the principle of 'arbitrarily' giving a name to a group of symptoms doesn't invalidate the whole thing.That guy suffering from melancholic depression who finally went up from its chair to go kill himself because the drug gave him enough of a boost to do it didn't have a "made-up disease" and didn't do that because of the placebo effect.>>10290282This, and the brain also visibly change with psychotherapy but talking about psychiatry and psychology here is like talking about Evolution on /pol/ it seems.
>>10289175Same reason why geniuses are put in mental hospitals all the time. The fall of man
>>10290155>struggling to find resources to survive 12 hours a day makes you happyokay
>>10290388>if your not depressed youre happyAsk me how I know you are retarded
>>10290155this is the most important post you will ever read on sci
>>10290917How do you know?
>>10290388you dont know about the internal reward system do you
>>10290155this>what is John Calhoun's mouse utopia experimentwith no struggle for food, sex or survival, mice began to attack each other, stopped having sex, the few pregnant mice seemed to forget about their babies and/or abandon them and homosexual tendencies grew prominentmice =/= humans, but an interesting study nonetheless
