The bigger problem, I think, is how poorly doctors inform family members.
It seems so easy to prescribe with ignorance of risk, or to minimize risk - as if the parents of a child with a peanut butter allergy or who had severe asthma were not informed of the risk.
This would be malpractice. But in the case of mental illness it is so much easier to blame the patient.. after all, they were depressed, and depressed people kill themselves.
after all, they were sick and sick people die...
doctors not being smarter about a very difficult illness...
at end, parents and family members are punished for not understanding illness, or being helpless to help their loved ones.
DM's son was a bright star with so many accomplishments, and yet he was lost because somehow the help he needed was not adequate in spite of his loving family, and in my case, a troubled child, but doctors not smart enough to enable us to help her better.
at end, the loss is on the heads of parents and family members. it is unimaginably painful..
> Dear god, I am so sorry for what has happened to you. I have read so many stories of these things happening and that is why I dislike those drugs so much.
> It has been shown numerous times in studies that these drugs can cause akathisia, which can drive someone to do very horrible things, like suicide. Many drug companies purposely kept secret these findings of akathisia for a very long time.
> There is something you can do, you can fight back at those *ssholes and sue them for wrongful death because akathisia was probably the reason of the suicide.
> Again, I am so sorry of that tradegy, I am actually suffering from a form of akathisia known as Tardive Akathisia, it lasts for a very very very long time, and the pain is so agonizing.
> Damnit, another life destroyed by these medicines.
> These drugs sometimes save people, but at what cost? Something is very wrong here with this world.
