I am getting weary and tired of medication. I try to explain plethora of symptoms and each time i am prescribed a new medication. Right now i am not even sure what my issue is. It may be Bipolar, Sz, OCD, Anxiety, Psychotic depression, etc. I dont care what it is. But i am concerned about the prognosis.
Recently i came across a video of an unknown figure who was explaining about medication for mental illness. He says if mind is not in the brain how can medicine help it. He says to treat mental illness we need psychotherapy, social support, CBT, Talk therapy, etc. And to solve or help mind at unease we need a mind at ease.
It seems to be compelling. And to add to that, he recommends a book by a Psychiatrist Grace E. Jackson - Drug-Induced Dementia: A Perfect Crime. After which she was expelled from Psychiatric association. Not sure how many would agree with that person. Also he says most people taking anti-depressants commit suicide.
