The case against antipyschotic drugs

Denise left a link to this paper in a comment. Since I love Robert Whitaker and I skimmed the paper and it seems to be up to his usual standard of greatness I’m posting the link here:

The case against antipsychotic drugs: a 50 year record of doing more harm than good

See a post from Vera Sherav I’ve posted before again too. From Alliance for Human Research Protection a look at a 15 year study on the efficacy on antipsychotics.

Lastly go to Furious Seasons and type in any atypical antipsychotic name in the search box and you’ll come up with more scathing shit. Try especially Zyprexa and Seroquel which he covers often.
