Ideal Performance Wrongly Called Minimal

read the FDA warning on SSRI/SSRN anti-depressants
- this is a warning for physicians in terms of their practice.. if you don't consider this reasonable, you must want doctors to be mysterious and impermeable to advice, and patients be kept ignorant..
read this please.. post this in your site and ask readers if it appears to be reasonable...

I know their side of the story and have some of the inside thinking that went into this politically difficult decision. Only one dissenter.

I wish them all well when they come before Congressional hearings, in 2008.
