I just noticed that there is a drug on the "fast track" for psychosis/depression. Pretty interesting, huh? At least the FDA is acknowledging that one aspect of mental health needs immediate help. I would if you have to be diagnosed with psychosis to have this prescrived on-label. Here's the info:

Name: Corlux
(AKA mifepristone or RU-486)

Mechanism: Glucocorticoid receptor type II (GRII) antagonist, progesterone receptor antagonist

Manufacturer:Corcept

Use: Psychosis, depression

Status: Phase III, granted fast track status by FDA
