Research shows that psychiatric drugs seem to have an impact on libido, so I decided to collect personal stories to complement the evidence of side effects from psychotropic medication already available. Libido can be directly linked with wellness, and patients need more information to make the choice right for them.
A group of researchers in Denmark examines what existing animal studies can tell us about the sexual side-effects of SSRI antidepressants.
Peter Gøtzsche’s new book, Deadly Psychiatry and Organized Denial brings up an important and complex issue. How do psychiatrists get up in the morning and damage people all day long while pretending to help them? The book is elegantly referenced – and I encourage everyone who practices thoughtful psychiatry to read it, because you need to be much better educated to practice high-quality mental health than you do to act as a dispensing machine. Gøtzsche is absolutely right; on all levels psychiatrists are in denial about the damage that they are doing to patients.
