Psychiatry is the cause … of indescribable suffering. The drugs I was prescribed caused permanent, damaging effects that have not lessened years after stopping. When I complained of the ill effects of the drugs, I was told I had worsening symptoms of x, y, z – new mental illness labels, as you describe in your article …polydrugged to deal with all the new symptoms I never had before starting the drugs. It has been a Kafkaesque nightmare where the only way to get help is to be thrown back into the arms of those who nearly killed you. If you complain, you are considered more mentally ill. I was told repeatedly that the drugs were not addictive and that it was better to take multiple drugs rather than one. How is what I and many others have gone through legal and importantly ethical? In reading about the opioid settlement, I wonder are we not also victims of grotesque marketing of addictive and dangerous pills? Who is keeping track of how many lives have been lost to psychiatric drugs? How many families destroyed? How many lives ruined? How can we possibly have “psychiatry” exist to destroy someone’s life in this way, in the name of mental health care? Dr. Campbell, please keep writing, advocating, educating. Thank you.
