Anti-depressants/psychotics are nothing but poison that serve no purpose other than negatively altering brain chemistry. They are no more effective than placebo in true clinical trials and are simply a crutch pushed by an industry formed from the legacy of junk science founded by S.Freud and A. Crowley.
Your own mind is a far more powerful tool than any substance used to damage and subvert it. You can know peace simply through sheer will and learning how to be a master of your own self and personal balance and well being. Eat right, exercise, immerse yourself in things that interest you and learn the sheer power of mind and will over matter.
It's your own choice to rise above the problems you perceive and those that an industry based solely on profit and pushing pills would have you believe you are afflicted with.
Could you please back up your claim about Aleister Crowley? I only ask because your views on using sheer will tend to back up AC's perspective. It is the foundation of Thelema. Could you point me to anything that supports your contradiction. I am greatly interested in this.

Going from the most loving and happy person I've known in a very long time, to leaving her children to go in therapy and start a new life, all the while on those drugs that changed her personality immediately and so far, permanently. She's been up there 4 months. She just got a job up there. She doesn't want her family to move there.
I see problems with this and feel powerless to boot. I told you so isn't enough.

Psychiatric disorders like bipolar disorder have a 25-30% suicide rate. The disease is destructive on its own.
When not medicated properly, it can make a sufferer even more so. When medicated properly, it can mean the difference between life and death.
Despite what people think, most bipolars commit suicide when they are manic, not as much when depressed.
Why? Because they have very little impulse control when manic. They also feel wonderful and euphoric, hence the reason they don't think they need meds, it is when they need them the most.
Any bipolar who is singing praises about getting off meds is a bomb waiting to happen, like the destruction of Charlie Sheen. That was a major manic episode played out in public.
