Antidepressants are the most commonly-prescribed medication in the U.S., with one in 10 Americans currently taking pills like Zoloft and Lexapro to treat depression.

But these pharmaceuticals are only fully effective roughly 30 percent of the time, and often come with troublesome side effects.

Video – Peter Gøtzsche, author of Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare, discusses how the pharmaceutical industry has been cheating the public by not truthfully divulging the possible after-effects of antidepressants.

According to unpublished data, several antidepressants have been found to cause addiction and worse, increase suicidal tendencies among patients.
