That phrase keeps showing up in media reports, including the recent ones on Risperdal getting approved for pediatric use. Where are all the non-powerful sweet gentle antipsychotics, huh?
Anyway, John McManamy has a good post on the subject, with both healthy skepticism about anti-antipsychotics movements and healthy skepticism about the reasons that Risperdal is getting approved at this point in time.
It just occurred to me that, on average, anti-psychotics might very well be gentler on bipolar people than antidepressants. But “powerful antidepressants” sounds like a good thing, doesn’t it?
