Sometimes I wonder what Millions of antidepressants and other medications and they true starting to come out imagine what will happen in the future a

massive wave of suffering and the success stories of quitting those drugs be the end of psychiatry?

imagine the amount of people that will try to go off and the amount that will find the truth and get off  and the movements that will arise from those people 

whats your opinion

In the UK, our health service are, reportedly, finding it difficult to recruit students into psychiatry.

A change may be forced?

Medicine is in a constant state of evolution, new solutions will be found, but the research and development is also moving away from psychiatry into cancer and diabetes in the UK, plus obesity, as R&D is nervous of prosecutions against them, as are drug manufacturers.

 

The Government may have to subsidise research and development and put in clauses so that the public can't sue.

 

There is a long way to go.  The market is stagnant at a time in history when more and more people are developing mental health issues.

More and more people seem to be having mental health issues as more and more prescriptions for benzos, a/d's and a/s meds are issued.

This seems to be a vicious circle.

Yes, it certainly seems that the treatments are in fact contributing to the mental health problems occurring.

 

It seems that the more we rely on medication to help the more unable we are to develop our own coping skills and have the confidence to try to live without them.

 

Also, antidepressants can make us more vulnerable to future relapses of depression, although it is impossible to know what is withdrawal and what is relapse.

 

Withdrawal depression seems to be even more intense that original depressions, and of a different nature, more violent, more angry, more nasty and destructive.

 

We are, as a society, in a mess with all this.  We are all in the soup together, patients, relatives, marriages, different countries, doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, drug companies, governments.  The WHO surely is working on this issue?  World Health Organisation
