Antidepressants causing breast cancer

Want to hear something really sad? Maddening saddening? One of the more popular antidepressants, Paxil, can actually contribute to cancer in women. Paroxetine (AKA, Paxil) has an estrogenic effect that can promote the development and growth of breast tumors in women. Add this and find that 25% of women who are under treatment for breast cancer also suffer from depression – regularly treated with antidepressants like Paxil. Add in another finding that nearly a quarter of all women in the U.S. in their 40s and 50s are on antidepressants and the toll mounts skyward. Add yet another factor into the mess with Brisdelle (another form of paroxetine), used as a common treatment for hot flashes and other menopause-related problems. Multiply all this by the fact that 70% of breast cancers in women are estrogen-sensitive and we have a smoking gun here. Man messing with chemicals to treat symptoms… Bad idea

Ooops! Wrong highway folks...
