Why take any pills. Mind altering drugs alters the mind.

George of the jungle has not suffered from clinical depression or anxiety?

Hence the uninformed question.

@ george of the jungle: That would be the point - if your mind is not working properly, you take medication to help it function the way it should. Kind of like when your body is not working properly and you take medication to help it - or when your leg is broken and you get a cast put on it.

Prozac and other SSRI based medications have a 3% adverse side effect.

Look up:
Columbine High School,
Andrea Yates,
going Postal,
Virgina Tech,
Aurora Movie Theater,
Florida Movie popcorn,

etc, etc., etc...

airnaut, the article is about a study which shows a possible benefit to adults who have taken Prozac in adolescence. Now if the article had been a request to throw out unfounded theories about a link between antidepressants and violent behavior, your comment would be spot-on. Bonus points for implying that the Florida movie shooter was on antidepressants when you don't have any way of knowing if that's true.
