People Taking Antidepressants After The Age of 60 Are ‘THREE TIMES More Likely To Get Dementia Because They May Cause Nerve Damage’
My disclaimer: I am NOT opposed to doctor-prescribed medications to treat mental health issues, in spite of the fact I do occasionally post content that is critical of such medications or of psychology or psychiatry. I am not opposed to the mental health profession, nor against medications, but, I am also not supportive of a view that any and all mental health treatments work for everyone.
People taking antidepressants in middle or old age could have triple the risk of developing dementia, a study has found.
Antidepressants may damage or kill crucial nerve cells in the brain, researchers claimed in a study of more than 71,000 people.
Rates of dementia were found to be 3.4 times higher among people who took thedepression drugs after the age of 60.
