Tuscon Massacre, and Anti-Psychotic Drugs

In the aftermath of the Tuscon Massacre, besides all of the partisan political huffing and puffing, there is a new "friendliness" in attitude towards legally prescribed psychotropic drugs.

This issue has been in the popular media well before this incident. I can think of several episodes of the TV series "Law and Order," making hay of some poor wretch being "off his meds," committing one or more heinous crimes. The implication is that the crime would not have been commited, that the "perp" would not be a "perp," but instead be reasonably happy and productive. Really?

Check out my last blog, about the ten legally prescribed drugs that are linked to violence. One of these drugs on the list, Luvox, was take by the infamous Columbine shooters. Two aren't even psych drugs, per se. One is for malaria, Larium, and the other is to stop smoking, Chantix. Now the latter drug does work upon a huge chunk of the nervous system.

So consider that some, perhaps many, drugs will foster violence instead of preventing it. \

More tomorrow. Make sure to "tune in." (That leaves out "turning on" and "dropping out." That stuff has caused enough damage.)
