Thanks to Judy1 and Penny. Yes, I had read the warnings in Prozac Backlash by Glennmullen, but he mostly talked about SSRIs causing parkisoninsm, akathisia, etc. He didn't talk much about APs in his book. When I first confronted the psychiatrist treating my wife, in March 2003, she was resentful and asked me - politely - to leave her office (I had been polite, and presented her with a letter from a neurologist telling her to consider reducing SSRIs, antipsychotics, and lamictal, provigil, klonopin - she was on a cocktail of six). The psychiatrist then told my wife "Your husband is interfering with my treatment." Instead of evaluating what was happening as side effects, and taking that into consideration. She then referred my wife to the quack that performed the ECTs, and he too refused to diagnose parkisonism caused by medications, and instead added OCD symptoms "very somatic" to account for my wife's obvious symptoms of involuntary movements and rigidity.

Thanks to both of you,

Nickm
