In Re: treating mental illness with drugs. Does the depressed person have a xanax deficiency?
Dr Mark Vonnegut, MD had a struggle with a bipolar disorder. Other links say he was schizophrenic. In his book, Eden Express, he gave the credit for his recovery to the orthomolecular treatment he used. In that book he says on page 267,
However, it should be pointed out that in this book, he states that "approximately a third - improve without any treatment.
Later he says -
Whatever shrink happens to be standing around when such remissions occur is usually willing to assume credit. ... From the book, one can see that he was trying to decide if it is the therapy or the ever changing medications that are the most effective for treatment. Vonnegut does not presently attribute his recovery to vitamins. In reality, such situations take years of trial and error treatment to figure out what actually is effective treatment since the diagnostic tools are based on statistics.
Vonnegut went on to graduate from Harvard after 19 unsuccessful applications. He decided from his study there that he was bipolar, not schizophrenic. So he is self-diagnosed? Is that even allowed?
Let me add that Vonnegut does NOT prescribe any antidepressant meds to children nor for ADHD probably because he recalls how powerful these drugs are. Vonnegut is in favor of parental choice.
My point is that doctors will stand around and be ready to take credit for the good outcome no matter how it was arrived at, but will blame the patient for the bad outcome.
