According to a recent study that was released in PNAS, antidepressants are linked to the rise in superbugs. With a few days of exposure, bacteria develop drug resistance, not only against one antibiotic but multiple antibiotics.
In England, antidepressants were taken by 7.3 million adults, or 17% of the adult population, from 2017 to 2018, the most recent year for which data is available. Despite its prevalence, it has been demonstrated by a major study that antidepressants don't make people any happier than taking no medicine at all.
