Go see for yourself on medical websites, when you have finished reading every thing posted here on ATS. Medical websites, large ones, will have a section for Mental Health, broken into sub-sets. Read some of those posts. People that have mental illness that have full intentions of bringing children into the world post questions all the time. My guess is they think their family line is so grand that the world would suffer if they didn't bring more mental defectives into your society. To me this defies logical thinking - - - all the more reason that sane people should be making sure these births do not occur. Stop producing mentally ill babies and doctors can stop prescribing mental health medications.

Your post is insultingly ignorant LargeFries, because while doctors are accidentally killing people and destroying lives, you are out there pretending nothing is wrong. Your twisted attitude of blind trust in a large number of people is exactly the reason bad medical care is one of the leading causes of death in the US.
I have a close relative who's life was basically destroyed by prescription drugs. And if its almost funny that you'd bend over backwards trusting your life to him and swallowing the deadly poisons.
With people's own careers its almost unanimous and obvious college did little to help them in practical situations at work. Yet people are 100% sure the colleges training people for doctors are doing everything just right and the training is everything they need. The assumption is just laughably wrong and makes ZERO sense. Zero.
So, please just do a few basic web searches on the dangers of prescriptions. Its a good bet they've done a lot of statistics on just what percentage of prescriptions end up with the patient happy, but its a sure bet you have not seen any of those.
People have to assume the doctor is guessing at the correct prescription and when necessary quickly ditch their treatment when it isn't working for them. If people understood such a simple thing there would be god knows how many tens of thousands of people in the US alive right now that would otherwise be dead. Doctors are great to have around but if you put blind faith in them like you do, their effectiveness drops off a cliff..

As to the Mother pulling a gun on the police and standing them off, no way out of that insane action on her part. In fact it makes me question her sanity.

I will protect my children from the bastards at CPS with everything I have. You would be insane NOT to.
Studies have shown that older adults with dementia (a brain disorder that affects the ability to remember, think clearly, communicate, and perform daily activities and that may cause changes in mood and personality) who take antipsychotics (medications for mental illness) such as risperidone have an increased risk of death during treatment. Older adults with dementia may also have a greater chance of having a stroke or mini-stroke during treatment. Tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are taking furosemide (Lasix). If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately: slow or difficult speech, sudden dizziness or faintness, or weakness or numbness of an arm or leg. Risperidone is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of behavior problems in older adults with dementia. Talk to the doctor who prescribed this medication if you, a family member, or someone you care for has dementia and is taking risperidone. For more information visit the FDA website: www.fda.gov...
