> sometimes, i think psychiatry is useless. maybe we should all just go to family doctors with psychopharmacology training, on top of their core curriculum? Szasz writes that a reasonably intelligent person can grasp psychopharmacology with about 2 weeks of dedicated study. Maybe he is...correct?!?!

It has taken me years, but if I had had access to the right kind of teaching materials (eg. books) it would probably have taken less than a year. I have picked up a little here and a little there, and it has added up to an understanding that I perceive to surpass that of most (but far from all) psychiatrists. But Szasz has a point -- you do *not* need to go to medical school full-time for years in order to pick up a decent knowledge of psychopharmacology.

Good psychiatrists do have something that I lack, namely clinical experience. On the other hand, I have personal, first-hand, experience, which a lot, if not most, psychiatrists don't have. Reading anecdotal reports from patients (such as here on and doctors (eg. case histories in medical journals) can, to an extent, simulate clinical experience.
