4. That Page You Found...
... Is run by Scientology. The booklet they offer, "The Way To Happiness" is a way to try to get people to visit their local org for the personality test, which is set up so no one can pass and not need their auditing. The page is a sham.

Scientology has been trying to do away with the mental health profession for many years. They organize protests against the entire practice. Because no one needs drugs or even psychological help. All they need is auditing with the e-meter and to rid themselves of pesky body thetans. Of course, they don't bother to tell you how many from their ranks have committed suicide when they ran out of money for auditing, (how many religions have a set charge anyway?) and they don't bother to tell you they're connected with them. You have to click on the name of the booklet and then at the bottom of that page, see the reference to L. Ron Hubbard.

Any concerns you have about the drug should be discussed with your doctor, not a poll here. If you need it, you need it. Any side effects, if any, should be discussed with your doctor. The bit about the lawsuits, well, Scientologists love to sue. I recognized the page as being one of theirs as soon as I saw it. They want people to give them money, not actual mental health professionals. Don't believe a word on that page.
