Wanting to start program that pressures medical system to warn about sexual dysfunction

I want to start a program that pressures the medical community into warning patients about sexual dysfunction associated with antidepressants. I cannot believe that these guys are able to legally prescribe these medications without warning about the high potential for developing sexual dysfunction. The fact that this has gone on for decades is unacceptable and I am at the point where taking action is the only option. If anyone has suggestions on how to get this done that would be greatly appreciated. I have thought about this for the last year and I am willing to cover the costs associated with pursuing this. I have inherited 15 000 000 and I am willing spend whatever is necessary to get this done. These guys need to pay and it is time someone bucks up and pursues this and I am more than happy to be the one who does it. Lets just say, I am not going to die without pursuing this to my fullest capabilities. It has given me a reason to keep going until I hold the people responsible for what they have done. I am loaded up and pissed.

Don't mean to talk about money but I can use what I have to hold these guys accountable.

Hello @labrat15

 

Have you considered making a donation to SurvivingAntidepressants? 

This site has helped and continues to help so many of us, including you and me. 

 

SA is not only a peer support forum, staffed by unpaid volunteers, founded and run out of pocket by Altostrata.

It's also a research project providing crucial longitudinal data and case studies for vital scientific work aimed at educating the medical community and public as to the reality of taking prescribed psychiatric drugs, incl. the lived experience of those who suffer serious, chronic iatrogenic harm as a consequence. 

See SA's mission statement here

 

If I were you and had similar means at my disposal, I would make a significant donation to SA: 

Donations gratefully accepted

 

Best wishes to you on your continuous healing journey,

A.
