I've no doubt is was a frightening and disturbing occurrence. Some time ago, I suggested that "organic brain syndrome" might be a valid explanation. It's a catch-all term doctors use when "something obviously happened, but we don't have a clue just what" takes place.

Absent persistent neurological deficits, you're left with shrugs because you weren't on an EEG when it happened.

Addiction be damned. What difference does it make if the med works, you're not abusing it, and you have not developed tolerance?

Meaning...? Healy believes in full disclosure, but he isn't anti-med per se. I don't know Medawar.

On what side is that? If you're treating troubling symptoms, and you have success with that....

I'm wondering if you concerns are not moot. You haven't done things drastically differently because of your concerns, ya know?
