Would you take this? A doctor’s experimentation with antipsychotics

In 1993 Richard Bentall, an expert on psychosis from the University of Bangor in Wales, voluntarily took an antipsychotic drug and at first thought he’d get through unscathed.
It wasn’t until someone asked him to fill in a form that he noticed some issues. Bentall explained that he “looked at this test and I couldn’t have filled it in to save my life. It would have been easier to climb Mt Everest.”

psych drugs

That was the least of his troubles. Bentall developed akathisia – unpleasant sensations of inner restlessness and an inability to sit still.  He also developed a feeling helplessness accompanied by depression. “They tried to persuade me to do these cognitive tests on the computer and I just started crying,” Bentall recalled.

One month since the Sandy Hook shootings.

It’s been one month since the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary and things are slowly changing.
The biggest concern after a tragedy like Sandy Hook is how do we as a country prevent such tragedies from happening again? While there is no quick fix solution to this mess, the different levels of government are pushing ahead with their own ideas.


Just today, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a package of tougher gun measures, not long after the state Assembly voted to bolster the state’s ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Included in these measures is a required universal background checks for all gun and ammunition sales, an increase in the state’s power to confiscate firearms from the mentally ill, increasing penalties for gun-related crime, and an immediate ban on semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and pistols with a “military-style feature,” such as a flash suppressor or a bayonet mount.
