The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 03.21.17

One of my best hours!  With British psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff, this is a must-listen-to show.  It is thoughtful from beginning to end about how psychiatric drugs really work by disrupting brain function and how they impair our ability to be “sensitive to complex aspects of the environment, such as other people.”  I describe how, in my opinion, they are neurotoxins that reduce the individual’s capacity to care about anything including themselves and other people.  Joanna and I do not fully agree on all the nuances of these issues, such as should antipsychotic drugs ever be used, and how common and severe are the long-term effects. These differences provide the listener with a unique opportunity to hear a genuine, informed, scientific, and caring discussion covering broad aspects and concerns pertaining to the whole range of psychiatric drugs.
