Certainly, antipsychotics and other psychiatric medications have made huge differences for people, and have saved lives. At the same time, the popular consciousness seems to be shifting into a more active and informed roll about what psychiatric medication can and cannot do for someone.
From the article:
Pharmaceutical companies have recently paid out the largest legal settlements in U.S. history — including the largest criminal fines ever imposed on corporations — for illegally marketing antipsychotic drugs. The payouts totaled more than $5 billion. But the worst costs of the drugs are being borne by the most vulnerable patients: children and teens in psychiatric hospitals, foster care and juvenile prisons, as well as elderly people in nursing homes. They are medicated for conditions for which the drugs haven't been proven safe or effective — in some cases, with death as a known possible outcome.
