Psychiatric Drugs: Should we just say “No”?

If you’ve questioned the wisdom of taking psychiatric drugs, or more importantly if you haven’t, watch this 15 minute interview with Professor Peter Gotzsche, a co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration. It will astound you.

quotes from the video:

“I don’t know why people can kill so many patients in psychiatry, and nobody does anything.” (7.15sec)

“What is so tragic about these drugs is that they can have an effect in some patients in the short term, but if you continue using them, they actually create psychiatric diseases.” (7.35 sec)

“What do you do with a specialty [Psychiarty] that to some extent lives on a lie, how do you deal with that?”  (9.25sec)
