So, this one I know darn well is questionable. Because, well, practically all medical science is questionable, because common research practices are atrociously sloppy at best (fraudulent at worst). But, nevertheless, I find this interesting, because WHATIF.

Antidepressants are super-common for people, in general, to be on. Moreso people who have anxiety disorders. That using them would, in fact, help trap people in the very problems they’re supposed to fix… well. It speaks for itself.
