Hi Lenora, You bring up a really good point in that if something goes wrong, it’s often blamed on the ‘mental illness’ being treated, not the drugs. If a person who’s been on antidepressants for six months tells their doctor they’ve been having suicidal or violent thoughts/fantasies, the doctor may not even consider the medication is the culprit. They might even increase the dosage or prescribe something stronger. That happened to me a few years in. I remember telling my family doctor about some strange ideas and moods I’d been having since starting a new antidepressant. He gave me that look. You know the one … like he wished he had a button under his desk to call in a few beefy orderlies. Anyways, he wrote me a script for Risperdal, a powerful antipsychotic(after reading ‘tics’ in the side effects I decided not to take it). And the longer you’re on these medications, the harder it is to determine what the hell is going on. You begin to believe that the foggy indifference is your natural personality. Thank you for the link to Peter Breggin’s website 🙂 It’s packed with eye opening information—some great reading.
