    Had to skim read because of brain fog but does he actually specify which drugs he’s talking about?

    Asking because in the opening para he refers to them as “brain pellets”, or something, which I think is unhelpful because ssris and snris do genuinely help so many people, and stigmatising them in this way is unhelpful.

    There needs to be more awareness about overprescribing and possible harm, but I’d really like that to be separated out from the type of binary thinking that they’re all bad, for everyone.

    If the blogger does make that distinction, apologies, it’s just that reading is difficult at the moment.
