SSRI Stories is relaunched

The website www.ssristories.org has been relaunched, having been taken over by team behind RxISK.org.

The site is built around a searchable database of media stories in which antidepressants have been linked to a variety of adverse outcomes, from strange behaviour to suicides and school shootings.

SSRI Stories was started by Rosie Meysenburg who died in March 2012. Rosie was prescribed Prozac in 1992 to help her stop smoking. After eight weeks, the drug had caused such extreme changes to her personality and state of mind that she had to be hospitalised.

She later began a campaign to share information about the effects that SSRIs have on some people.
