There are no “Antidepressants”. There are no “Antipsychotics”. These are marketing concepts, not medicines. Psycholeptic drugs all have non-specific effects on the brain. Most are detrimental, especially with prolonged use. I have been practising and studying medicine continuously for almost half a century. It seems beyond my comprehension that alleged doctors can be so influenced by pharma-marketing and its “incentives” that they can prescribe long term antipsychotics for alleged depression, “diagnosed” using drug company tick boxes. These drugs have the potential to destroy lives. The least professionals could do before prescribing is to become adequately informed about the real toxicity, and the devastating cost to persons and to society of the common, neuropsychiatric, metabolic, cardiac, endocrine, integumentary and sexual dysfunction – adverse psychiatric drug reactions. Then they should inform All patients of All Toxicities in order to prescribe with informed consent. Doctors have a duty both to know of, and to understand the adverse effects of the drugs which they prescribe. They have been denied such knowledge by both manufacturers and regulators. (Dolin v GSK 2017). Doctors are responsible for the long term effects of the drugs they prescribe. This is unenforcible in psychiatric-drug long-term injuries as most precribers reject any patient/relative criticism – (or adverse drug reaction reporting by their patients) – often blaming all drug injuries on “emergent co-morbidities” and underlying, newly identified “psychiatric diseases”. Psychiatry and its drugs means “Never Having To Say You’re Sorry”. “Listen to your patients – they are telling you the diagnosis”. (Sir William Osler). Listen to your drug reps and your pharma-funded “Continuing Medical Education” – and both practitioner and patient will be deceived. TRM 123. Retired Consultant Physician.
