YOU GOT IT WRONG - Doyin Richards

The aim of this blog is to highlight persons in the media who tout the chemical imbalance theory as a fact. It's highly unprofessional and misleading to do so and this blog demands that any statements relating to the 'chemical imbalance' myth should either be backed up with supporting evidence or redacted.

Where possible, each person featured on this blog has been contacted via Twitter, email, and/or Facebook and asked to redact their statements or provide supporting evidence. 

Once supporting evidence has been shown they will be removed from this blog. Moreover, if they redact their original statements they will also be removed from this blog.

As you will see from these lists, many of the authors are household names and influence those who follow them. This has to stop. The chemical imbalance line was created by the pharmaceutical industry, moreover, Eli Lilly, who launched the first of the SSRIs, Prozac.

Those featured on this list need to do their research.

  1. When you seek help, the first professional a person goes to is their GP.
    Usually, a prescription may be quickly written up.
    There are no quick fixes with meds.
    We all were born with an impairment.
    No one is perfect.
    It is how we deal with it that matters and if medication help some people, this is a good thing.
    Some medication may ruin some peoples lives.
    We have to be educated about the pros and cons surrounding these medicines.
    When someone tells me, it is dependant on someone's chemistry, as to how a medicine reacts, I am totally baffled with how they cam up wit this concept.
    Just like you can get dodgy cars ( or anything else ) in the manufacturing process, you can end up with dodgy medicines and this is a debate we all need to have with those who believe our systems are robust.
    There is no such thing and S%#t can happen to anyone.
    I don't believe all we are told because I was one of those unfortunate statistic, who suffered unnecessarily.

Enough said. Hi there, the old idea that ADs correct a chemical imbalance in the brain is an over-simplification and we do not support ...
