Intuniv ,Its a blood pressure pill. They needed a market share for a non stimulant stimulant, onlt treats the HD.

This book exposes the traditional view that psychiatric drugs correct chemical imbalances as a dangerous fraud. Instead it is proposed that psychiatric drugs 'work' by creating abnormal brain states, which are often unpleasant and impair normal intellectual and emotional functions along with other harmful consequences.
I know cause I lived those consequences, harmful ones.
Bipolar for dummies, I read that also. kinda dumb.View Thread
And natural science incudes they empircal method, generally taken to mean the approach of using a collection of data to base a theory or derive a conclusion in science.
Linked to, may, its thought , it is hoped...... that people may belive in the myth of the chemical Imbalance theory and belive they have a physical disease requiring physical drug treatment.View Thread
Psychiatry's diagnostic criteria are literally voted into existence and inserted into the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM). What is voted in is a system of classification of symptoms that is drastically different from, and foreign to, anything in medicine. None of the diagnoses are supported by objective evidence of physical disease, illness, or science.
I hated that place from the start. The Naked search that included "Squat and cough" on intake. I am a human being ! not a criminal or an animal. Just the fact the door is locked makes it a prison. Were you on the 3rd floor ?View Thread
The subjective experience of being forcibly injected with psychotropic drugs and left isolated has created one of my longest-standing recurring nightmares. There I was, a confused and frightened young person. I felt at the time that I needed respite, advice, support and comfort. Instead, the impact of the coerced psychiatric drug felt like a wrecking ball to the cathedral of my mind, a mind which was indeed troubled, but which I valued nonetheless. While on coerced neuroleptic psychiatric medication, also known as antipsychotics, the more I tried to focus and think, the more difficult I found the task. I developed a number of physical side effects to the medications that some might consider trivial, but that I found upsetting, such as muscle contortions in my neck and blurry vision. All in all, I felt humiliated, disrespected and defiant. I certainly did not feel a high level of trust with my mental health providers that might have been more conducive to a therapeutic relationship. I was exposed to a variety of coercive acts while in psychiatric institutions. For instance, upon admission my basic rights were immediately taken a way, and then slowly given back as privileges for behaviour that was considered appropriate. My every movement was monitored and controlled. Any seemingly peaceful rebellion by me — such as questioning staff — could be misinterpreted as violent, and result in another forced drugging. .
