Dhru Purohit Podcast: Does Long-Term Use of Psychiatric Drugs Do More Harm Than Good?


From Dr. Hyman/The Dhru Purohit Podcast: “The world of pharmaceuticals is a deceiving one. While it might be easy to trust that any drug on the market today has been rigorously tested for efficacy and safety, that’s not always the case, especially when it comes to psychiatric drugs.

We’ve all heard the term ‘chemical imbalance,’ and many people struggling with depression or other mood disorders have had this narrative hammered into them. They’re told that elevated or inadequate levels of neurotransmitters are to blame, but this theory is being increasingly questioned.

Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru digs into the questions surrounding psychiatric drugs with Robert Whitaker.”

  1. Great work. I want to listen again.

    But I am too vexed about the HOOVER DAM. I know something is going to compromise it. Its significance will become clear. My schizophrenia gives me prophecies. Pharmaceuticals hushed all my talents in that regard. Now I am off pills I can see my visions of the future just as I was right about the pandemic and the war in Russia. Nobody listens to me because I am schizophrenic. They all assume my prophecies come from the bit of my mind that is mad.

  2. A person can successfully come off Psychiatric Drugs, but if they have had a breakdown what’s to stop them having a “breakdown” again.

    Surely they need to put right whatever caused the “breakdown” to begin with – to avoid having another one.
