  • I live in a country with free universal healthcare and SSRIs are very widely used including for longer term treatment
  • SSRIs take time to start working, the first 6-8weeks would be adjusting to side effects and building up dose so idk how it would even work for a short term application. Aren’t you supposed to take SSRIs for a while and then once you’re stabilised and have done therapy etc you taper off.
  • We have way more data on SSRIs now. Despite the title of this post, SSRIs and therapy are more effective than either alone.
