| Dear FDA;
The thing I've never really understood is how a campaign can be run in our schools that tells our young people 'DON'T TAKE DRUGS'. And at the same time the drug pushers in white coats and (not so white coats) say 'TAKE THESE MIND ALTERING ANTI-PSYCHOTIC DRUGS WITH SIDE EFFECTS LIKE SUICIDE'.
That 'chemical imbalance' crap is just that. It's a lie. There is no medical test for this marketing ploy. Psychiatrists admit this outright.
Yet they are pushing and selling these drugs in magazines and on line.
Please do your job and prevent these drug pushers in shirts and ties from adding your family members to the growing statistics of 'innocent bystanders' shot and or killed by some 'normal guy' reacting to the side effects of psych drugs.
