When I got the internet I started looking up the drugs I had been given. Then you start finding out all you had not been told. Breggin & Healy, as expert witnesses, had access to data about drug trials which the general public did not. When a family member tried to commit suicide after being given anti-emetics I had a genetic test done for cyp2d6.

Correspondence between Dr David Healy and the Medicines Control Agency
The correspondence began in late 1999 and mainly relates to Dr Healy’s concerns about the risk that fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline and other SSRIs may induce in a small but significant number of users suicidal feelings or acts, or extreme aggression towards others.
Suicidality, violence and mania caused by selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs): A review and analysis P. R. Breggin International Journal of Risk and Safety in Medicine, vol. 16, no. 1, pp. 31-49, 2004
Soon after the introduction of the first selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), fluoxetine (Prozac) into the United States marketplace in January 1988, reports began to appear describing fluoxetine-induced violence against self and others.
In May 1990 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration required the manufacturer of Prozac, Eli Lilly and Company, to add “suicidal ideation” and “violent behaviors” to the Postintroduction Reports section of its label.
In 2003 the British Committee on the Safety of Medicines and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued warnings about increased rates of self-harm and suicidal behavior in children and youth under the age of 18 exposed to paroxetine (Paxil)
Drugs That Can Cause Depression, Agitation & Suicidality Author: RxISK Medical Team Last updated: 2018
In total there are 40,000 or more different trade named drugs in North America and Europe that can make you depressed, agitated or suicidal. Roughly 20% of the named drugs on the market in any one country may pose risks to you. Roughly 33% of us are taking one of them. The risk comes from the drug, not you.
Even though the depression, anxiety, or suicidality that you are experiencing is written into the label of the drug you are on, your doctor may completely deny that this is a possibility when it seems obvious to you.
Or just as bad, s/he may never point out to you that the symptoms you are having that you don’t connect to the drug, may in fact stem from this source.
S/he will instead likely add in more drugs which will almost certainly make the problem worse.
