“More Evidence that Antipsychotics Shrink the Brain”


A review of 18 imaging studies finds that brain matter loss in patients diagnosed with schizophrenia is correlated with antipsychotic use, according to Psych Central.  The analysis suggests that the continued use of antipsychotics is linked with progressive cortical gray matter loss.

  1. Another one…
    The fat lady has sung. But apparently it’s OK to cause brain damage in “schizophrenics” and other “human trash” – they are not good little robots so they have no worth in society. Who cares if they only get worse and end up dying 25 years too early.

    • Yes, I thought this was reported back in 2011 or 2013? I did think it so psychiatric to claim that since they found the brain damage less, not non-existent, with the second generation antipsychotics than the first, the second generation antipsychotics are “neuroprotective.” No they’re not, they too are damaging the brain.

      • They all “work” by the same mechanism so claims that they have radically opposite effects on the brain are bogus to say the least. It’s no wonder that when you switch off the very important dopaminergic input that neurons degenerate.

  2. Research has shown that alcohol dependency damages the brain and that valium dependency damages the brain, so it’s not surprising that longterm “antipsychotic” dosing damages the brain.

    I think it’s part of the “organised denial” system that this fact is taking so long to be scientifically identified.

  3. Yes, the end result of this will be more Abilify. What a hideous drug. The FDA was wrong to allow it to be named Abilify, too. Obviously it should be Disabilify.

    There’s a clinical trial for a drug that’s suppose to help with tardive dyskinesia. Look how they omit mention of the cause and the name tardive dyskinesia
