I think psychotropics are the worst thing, ever. The pharmaceutical companies know and have known, that certain people (adolescents, etc) become straight up psychotic when they go off the drugs. Some become psychotic just by taking the drugs. Then, when something awful happens, everyone is sitting around wringing their hands and crying “Oh, how could this happen?!?”
It’s a freaking time-bomb… take everyone off those drugs at the same time?
Oh man… it will be biblical..
By the way, sorry to hear about your friend… tinkering with the inner workings of someone’s mind cannot end well, even if someone means well…
