I came across this stack via Adrian Gaty. I have experienced the consequences of this first hand. In my twenties following trauma and again in my 30's postpartum I was convinced to try several antidepressants. One real humdinger of a psychiatrist even told me to my face that he was looking forward to experimenting on me (with different ssri's) 😳 I should have run immediately- I did shortly after. None of them ever really worked, I saw small, temporary improvements but they were always short-lived and I always knew something was still wrong. And I believe I am still dealing with the side effects to this day (most notably, weight gain but I am fairly certain there are other hidden issues as well). Thank you for your advocacy and I'm encouraged that even a small handful of professionals are willing to seek the truth and speak out on this. Thank you!

Yes, we are literate. These sketchy medical and psychiatric “professionals” take advantage of bureaucracy to control information, and worst of all, try to control our interpretation of plain text, such as the labels, warnings, and studies on meds. If someone tells me not to check their methods, 1) I become more skeptical, and 2) so often, the methods of these sketchy doctors and practitioners, and even some of the studies, do not stand up to scientific rigor, nor procedural logic. Most people can follow logic even without formal training in it.

They’re so convinced that the public is hopelessly stupid. Why should we trust an insular, well-funded group of people who insist that every patient possesses subhuman intelligence?

These drugs did me far more harm than good. I lost my life and family to these mind altering drugs. It's a wonder I lived to talk about it. I nearly died from heart failure, repeated bouts Antipsychotic induced hyponatremia that landed me in ICU, numerous blood transfusions etc etc. I even I had to have heart surgery. I am off all the drugs now and at 65 I am far healthier now than I was in my 40's and hopelessly poly drugged.
