    • This is good news. The next development should be medical malpractice lawsuits against psychiatrists who advised long-term of antipsychotics for clients labeled “schizophrenic” and “bipolar” without letting them know about the lack of evidence of long-term efficacy and the risks like tardive dyskinesia associated with long-term use. That would really be a nightmare for psychiatrists, and there are tens of thousands of potential plaintiffs out there who would be in a strong position to sue. We also need more lawyers who are familiar with how to bring a case against psychiatrists.

    • I agree, patients really should be able to sue doctors, since they’re only trusted in the first place because they have malpractice insurance and doctors lie to us claiming they promise to “first and foremost do no harm.” But instead they are addicting people on opioids, while fraudulently calling them by other names, and claiming they’re “safe.”

      And I agree with BPT regarding the fact patients should be able to sue the psychiatrists, especially since the neuroleptics have been known to be a toxic class of drugs for decades. Let’s hope the lawyers start taking cases some day.
