Actually, Freud advocated cocaine for “whatever ails you”. Partly because he got so much benefit from using it himself, partly because he was paid handsomely by two competing drug companies to promote it.
What I find so shocking about this is — nothing much has changed in the “depression business” since cocaine fell out of official favor. Its been a parade of one drug after another, sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, loyal psychiatrists and media to the detriment of those who are having some real problems in life. In fact, recent statistics show that these psychotropic drugs result in 700,000 adverse reactions and 42,000 deaths a year in the United States and Europe. Folks, this really has to stop. Depression can be successfully treated without the use of dangerous drugs.
