"Discontinuing the use of antidepressants can be problematic, but many people taking these drugs choose thepainful withdrawal process -- and subsequent depression -over the emotional numbness the meds can cause. This hard-hitting program documents the drastic effects on thefilmmaker's well-being as he weans himself off Paxil and reveals unethical links between the FDA, the American Psychiatric Association, and the pharmaceutical industry, all of whom downplayed Paxil's harmful side effects. The video also examines the theory that depression is caused by low serotonin levels -- conveniently remedied by pharmaceuticals -- and talks with people whose loved ones committed suicide while under the influence of antidepressants."--Container
