Sowhysosad,

Regarding the diabetes issue, many people are on psych meds long term. I don't remember any poster on these boards being on them short term. So I think I deserve a little more credit than you're giving me.

Again, 2 to 10% of all adverse effects are reported to the FDA. Even if we don't agree on what is an AE, that is still a low number.

And again, if people's experiences are being blown off which even pro meds folks agree on, how can you call anyone's experience isolated? That comes across as extremely insensitive even if that wasn't your intention.

And someone's so called isolated experience can be the key to information we don't know about. For example, when I started researching ototoxic medications after finding out that my hearing loss was caused by Remeron, there was very little information on the issue. Now, there is a whole lot more although it isn't as fast as I would like. But that seems to always be the case.

As far as agendas, everyone who posts on this board has one so please, it isn't limited to the anti-meds crowd. There isn't a human being on this earth who is completely objective and to claim otherwise is simply wrong.

You have an agenda by calling people like me rare isolated cases.
