drug-induced illness

Posted by lostforwards on November 30, 2004, at 8:25:33

TD is a well documented side-effect of antipsychotics. It occurs as a result of supersensitivity of dopamine receptors. There is also something called supersensitivity psychosis that has been less talked about.

I'd like to know whether the consequences of supersenstivity go beyond merely making psychotic symptoms worse. I'd like to know if it has an effect on negative symptoms, and if it can resuls in the development of other psychiatric or psychological problems.

I've read on ONE site, it was a antipsychiatry site, that the use of antipsychotics can lead to the development of personality disorders.

I don't know much about dopamine in the brain, but I know that it is involved with reward and motivation. Somewhere else ( again antipsychiatry extreme ) I read that APs interfered with the "reward cascade".

These little bits and pices of blah and a bit of imagination make it easy for me to believe that there's some truth to that one statement I read on that single site.
