Lots of people get severe iatrogenic illness on these drugs. Many of them don’t have a diagnosis and most probably don’t even know the drugs they’re on are making them sick.
I have severe illness but since I was on so many drugs for so many years there isn’t one company I can blame. Hence no lawsuits for me, like the opening person in this beginning of this video.

Daniel Carlat is highlighted in this documentary a couple of times. I’d like to remind people that while he is bringing important issues to light he still has many serious issues in practice.

I’ll make note that Al Jazeera is doing some great journalism. Yesterday’s interview with John Nash was also Al Jazeera.
