(On a woman killed in Washington DC Here. Reportedly she was off her meds)
In the beginning of my career, I had lot of antagonism for antipsychotics, antidepressants and other centrally acting drugs. But over years with experience, I found them to be an essential life saving drugs. I met many many patients and people who would end up in psych facility, spoiled their life (read story of Manihere), committed suicide or have killed someone without these drugs. Depression, Bi-polarism, Schizophrenia etc. are REAL things! People act and do bizarre things.
Most important part is to have a doctor/psychiatrist/shrink who can 'finely' manage these drugs and can keep side effects under control.
