    I so appreciate you sharing Breggin’s work with us from time to time. Though he is often maligned by mainstream psychiatry I’ve found that what he speaks of is true. Drugs are so often the problem. They make symptoms worse and side effects are often mistaken for a worsening of the original condition. As is stated in this statistic. Most people who have a manic episode triggered by an antidepressant are labeled bipolar and then put on additional drugs. I now know of many people who refused the diagnosis after the drug side effect and are doing just fine drug free.
