SAMHSA Stakeholder Feedback

I suggest SAMHSA...

many generic psychiatric meds do not work well. We've tried many the name brand counterparts work.

Please educate people about this and insist that insurance companies pay for the name brand when the generics are not effective. I think many people think their medication doesn't work because they're using generic. We've had years of experience of this with my daugher and husband. They both do great on namebrand...the generics are like sugar pills.

        See the countless court cases against generic drugs. They kill as many people as the orginals do in their legal failure to test and warn.
        All psychotrophic medication damage people's brains and spellbind them. That's why people may think that the drugs don't work- that and the fact that most if not all of them ARE less effective than sugar pills, with the bonus of free brain injury. See: Robert Whitaker, Peter Breggin, Grace Jackson...............
