Well, frankly, I am a bit unsettled by the implications of this new technology. That an indiscriminite amount of potentially lethal drugs could be
released into a person by an outside source is terrifying indeed
The basic idea is that mental patients are able to self dose unconsciously.
Problem: how does the doctor know when another injection is required (ie. the last shot has been used up)?
Problem: What happens when the doses have not been used by the patient by the time the DNA carrier degrades and all the chemicals are then released in
mass in the patient's brain? * see note below.
Problem: What effect does the degrading DNA in the patients brain have upon the health of the patient?
Some pretty big hurdles to clear before human testing. One of my main concerns with the prescribing of psychotropic drugs is that there is very little
if any actual observation by the prescribing physician as to whether or when to adjust dosage, whether or when it has been determined that a different
drug should be substituted, etc.
Jumping into self medication before even the existing problems have been properly addressed seems a bit like plunging ahead in reverse.
Example: The patient pulls out his prescription bottle and reads "Take as needed for anxiety". The bottle is still 3/4 full. Expiration date is
tomorrow. "Oh well, better just swallow the rest today."
