I question the double standards of the medical establishment in the UK promoting the use of anti-depressant which may be no more use than placebo. This research document on anti-depressants states that...
"A key issue disregarded by critics is the patient’s point of view, as if the patient is benefiting from antidepressant treatment does it matter whether this is being achieved via drug or placebo effects? However, it is evident that the ideal antidepressant has not been found as three key problems of intolerance, delayed therapeutic onset and limited efficacy persist. "
However, thyroid patients are told that their point of view on T3 is irrelevant because the 'experts' have made the decision for them. The medical establishment is prepared to prescribe hundreds of millions of anti-depressants on the basis that it may work as placebo even if not efficacious but they want to stop T3 medicine, even though it is highly effective in replacing what the body lacks.
