    For some military troops, psychiatric drug cocktails have deadly effects

    From The NY Times:

    In his last months alive, Senior Airman Anthony Mena (pictured) rarely left home without a backpack filled with medications.

    He returned from his second deployment to Iraq complaining of back pain, insomnia, anxiety and nightmares. Doctors diagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder and prescribed powerful cocktails of psychiatric drugs and narcotics.

    Yet his pain only deepened, as did his depression. “I have almost given up hope,” he told a doctor in 2008, medical records show. “I should have died in Iraq.”

    80 percent of people that have depression are treatable with medication. You are a lying hack.

    where do you get your information ?..EI Lilly flyers ?...The fact is a placebo is all but equally effective...why cant you grasp that fact ??..look at the studies done by the drug companies themselves and you can see for yourself even according to their studies anti-depressants are only slightly more effective than a placebo it is true 80% will report improvement on medication but it is equally true that a placebo will also get all most the same result from a placebo ...its a simple fact..as is the the fact these drugs can cause violent behaviors and suicides

    This is true, but that leaves the other 20% to deal with. Thees men were part of that 20%. Our soldiers are being pushed to hard for political reasons and being sent back to combat to avoid higher unemployment numbers for the great Obama.

    Do you happen to have a link that indicates just what drugs this man was on, and when? If he was still on any true anti-psychotic drug, he should NEVER have been medically cleared for deployment.

    As for your other link the content is beyond disturbing; if that's how the services are treating PTSD we have a serious problem.

    You will, I hope forgive me for being a bit leery of material you post, based on your track record of postings on various conspiracy theories; this one, however appears legitimate.

    Gunny, with all due respect, your stats are a little off. About 80% of patients with clinical depression can be effectively treated with some combination of cognitive/behavioral therapies and medication where indicated Some patients do not require medication; others find it helpful in varying degrees. That still leaves 20% whose illness appears less than adequately responsive to either psychotherapy, or medication. It's good that you are one of the 80% and I am glad you are, but medical science still does not have as much to offer some patients as would be desirable, despite recent advances. There are more and better treatment options available these days, but there's still no help for some; we can only hope....

    Meanwhile, you keep hanging in there, brother. Depression, like PTSD, is a hard fight, but one you CAN win; I know. Don't give up; don't EVER give up!
