I tried to cut and paste the section but couldn't do it correctly.   Anyway, article starts off about an 18 month year old being prescribed Risperdal due to a violent reaction to an Epilepsy med.  Unless I missed it, the author never pointed out how common a practice this is in medicine of using more meds like psych ones to cover adverse psychiatric reactions instead of finding an alternative epilepsy med to try.

Drug cocktail 1995 - 2010
Started taper of Adderall, Wellbutrin XL, Remeron, and Doxepin in 2006
Finished taper on June 10, 2010

Temazepam on a PRN basis approximately twice a month - 2014 to 2016

Beginning in 2017 - Consumption increased to about two times per week

April 2017 - Increased to taking it full time for insomnia

What's really scary is this isn't new.


Check out this ad for Mellaril - http://prescriptiondrugs.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=005624


It was being marketed for ADHD in 1980 for use in children. Mellaril is an antipsychotic. It was one of the first ones I was prescribed for misdiagnosed manic depression in 1985 when I was 17. 


Psychiatrists are criminals and mass murderers. Nothing surprises me any more. . . . 

Drug free May 22, 2015 after 30 years of neuroleptics, benzos, z-drugs, so-called "anti"-depressants, and amphetamines

I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice, but simply information based on my own experience, as well as other members who have survived these drugs.
