I've been taking Anti-Psychotics since I was first in Hospital at the beginning of '96 and i'm still to be entirely convinced that i'm in need of them.

I think that in general they put a lot of people on anti-psychotic meds if the said patient has in their lives suffered trauma from abuse and are such extremely angry.

I think they put a lot of us whom are in that position on meds to protect people from us rather than because it is good for us.

I take one but it is used as a mood Stabliser but when I'm crisis I take it as a prn to deal with the psychotic symptoms I get when I am at rock bottom.
