How did Seroquel from a University of Minnesota research study get into the oatmeal at a sex offender facility?

“However, what Schulz wants readers of the AJP to understand is this: the University of Minnesota provided a statement to the Times that there had been no misconduct by any university investigator, and the Times neglected to print it.”

Doing Psychiatry Right: A Case of Severe Avoidant Personality Disorder with Obsessive-compulsive Personality Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder and Sexual Paraphilias.


“Over dependence on pharmacotherapy in psychiatry, known as biological imperialism, is a world-wide phenomenon. Some authors have opined that the inadequate and ineffective utilization of psychotherapeutic interventions and only dependence on pharmacotherapy amounts to institutional malpractice. Here is an example of such a case. A young male mainly received multiple psychotropic medicines, including clozapine (and also a failed psychotherapy) over a period of 4 years, without any benefit. His global assessment of function score remained at 30. However, with proper diagnosis and effectively conducted psychotherapy a significant improvement in Global assessment of functioning score of 70 was achieved, over a period of 1½ years.”

“In a book titled “doing psychiatry wrong”[1] the author (a Psychiatrist) describes several cases treated with medications, mostly inappropriately (e.g., patient with borderline personality treated as bipolar disorder, multi drug abuser treated as schizophrenia), without much gain. He claims that such mismanagement is quite common. Another author[2] (a Sociologist) argues that in spite of the evidence that psychiatric conditions improve best with a combination of medicines and therapy, psychotherapy is rarely offered. This trend is referred by the author as an institutional malpractice. That author’s research has shown that such patients who were treated only with medicines “do less well, are readmitted more quickly, diagnosed more inaccurately and medicated more randomly.” Here is a case report, which endorses all these aspects. This case was inaccurately diagnosed, randomly medicated and did less well. Properly conducted psychotherapy has improved the patient. Are we in to a second wave of anti-psychiatry movement against biological imperialism?”


I am not sure if doing psychiatry right means psychotherapy.

The author ask this question in the introduction: “Are we in to a second wave of anti-psychiatry movement against biological imperialism?”

Response by Phil Hickey:

The article concludes with the following quote: “psychology ultimately expresses through biology.”

    Reblogged this on Chaos Theory and Pharmacology and commented:

    Andan diciendo por ahí…

    “como dice Mafalda: todo sirve para algo, pero nada sirve para todo… es poco probable que quetiapina o el antipsicótico que sea sea útil en los trastornos de personalidad. No es lo mismo “los pacientes” ( allá, desde afuera…) que tener cerca, así sea un vecino, a la persona con patología psiquiátrica de tipo paranoide, que obviamente no reconoce su trastorno, así que toca darle el antipsicótico en el cereal del desayuno, o en el sancocho…”

    Re: completamente en desacuerdo. Eso le sucedio a Luise en varias ocasiones, hasta que la mataron…
