Chemical Imbalance and the American Psychiatric Association (APA)

I was pretty shocked when I saw the Today Show and heard the President of the APA ad mit they have no proof of chemical imbalance.

In all the media frenzy of the past few days I think this admission has not gotten the attention it deserves.

Chemical imbalance is THE theory justifying the use of SSRI antidepressants.

I've heard that people who go on these antidepressants tend to gain a lot of weight - 40 to 50 pounds isn't unusual.

I've also heard that it affects ones sexual drive.

Has anyone reading this experienced anything like this?
