Zoloft, Mounjaro, and Social Stigma

From Healthcare Triage.

Drugs that do a pretty good job of easing symptoms of depression and drugs that really help people struggling with obesity have a couple things in common. The first is that we have almost no idea how they work, and the second is that there’s often shame around using them because so many people view issues of mental health and weight control as personal failings. In a recent article for the New York Times I argue that we should shift focus from these two things and focus instead on significantly improving people’s lives, which these drugs do.
