> Untoward psychiatric side effects are not exclusive to psychiatric drugs. Prednisone is a leading example of how a drug critical to the healing of disease can produce psychosis and depression. There a risks along with the benefits. It is incumbent upon the treating physician to monitor for the evolution of these side effects and address them accordingly. There are at least two scenarios by which a patient being treated with an antidepressant can express suicidality as a treatment-emergent effect. A good physician recognizes this, and must monitor a patient closely early in treatment. It is unfortunate that there has been such a dearth of study of these phenomena, as it would prove instructive to ascertain their frequency. It is my impression that it occurs in a small minority of cases.

I recognize and appreciate your passions and intentions. However, I very much disagree with your conclusions. Unfortunately, there still remains a backlash against the use of psychiatric drugs, even though they save lives and reduce suffering when used intelligently. For now, my primary concern is that the drugs you would have taken away from me remain available, as they do afford me a reduction of pain and suffering.

Friends,
It is written herte,[...It is incumbent upon the treating physician to monitor for the evolution of these side effects (suicide ideation)...]
I agree. However, the treating physician can not be with the person taking the drug all the time. I also know of cases where hospitalized people taking these drugs in question have killed themselves.
It is written here,[...I disagree with your conclusions...].
Friends, this thread is about what the bible in question here says or does not say in relation to if those taking mind-altering drugs will have their place in the Lake of Fire. I do not think that I have stated a conclusion in this thread and if one sees one by me, please post it here so that I can respond.
It is written here,[...drugs you would have taken away from me...]
I do not believe that in this thread I have posted to have those drugs in question taken away from anyone. The thread here is a faith thread about as to if those that use mind-altering drugs will be cast into the Lake of Fire by the God of the bible here in question. Could all of you that are reading this please understand that my passion here is to save lives and to help those that want to be free from mind-altering drugs by offering support and education to them from my perspective. I am not involved in any group to have psychotropic drugs taken off the market. I am not a member of any religious or other group having an agenda aginst psychotropic drugs.
Lou
