Are anti psychotics responsible for the premature death of schizophrenics. It was in the news in my country that these anti psychotics are steadily killing us schizophrenics. Thus the life expectancy for schizophrenics is up to 15 yrs less than other healthy people.
Anyway, it said in the news that these meds are responsible for weakening our cardiovascular health, as well as the problems with weight gain and diabetes and high cholesterol.
Anyway, I thought these meds were just responsible for negative symptoms. I didn’t know they were actually responsible for slowly killing us. I thought schizophrenics mainly died young because they smoked. But no the physical health is screwed round too because of these meds.
Anyway, I apologise for the ramble!
