iatrogenic /iat·ro·gen·ic/ (i-ă´tro-jen´ik) resulting from the activity of physicians; said of any adverse condition in a patient resulting from treatment by a physician or surgeon. (see more definitions here – medical dictionary: iatrogenic harm)



When a doctor harms you there is the additional insult of not only having trusted but also having paid someone for the service of hurting you…this is how one is also traumatized, adding even more layers to the injury.

For my personal story of iatrogenic harm from psychopharmaceuticals see here: The aftermath of polypsychopharmacology: my story on Dr. David Healy’s site


●  Psychiatric drugs as agents of trauma

●  Protracted psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome, chronic illness, CFS, Fibromyalgia. Yeah, they all have things in common.

●  Introduction to psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome

*it is potentially dangerous to come off medications precipitously. Please be sure to be well educated before undertaking any sort of discontinuation of medications. Do not assume your MD will know how to do it either. They are generally not trained in discontiuation. See: Psychiatric drug withdrawal and protracted withdrawal syndrome round-up
