You know, I am rather surprised that psychiatrists don't "try" any drugs during their training. It wouldn't be so far-fetched for them to do so, in a controlled setting. Look how many universities give students all kinds of drugs in experiments in controled settings. Seems to me it's very hard to describe a drug experience acurately enough that the other person comprehends exactly what that consciousness felt like. Of course, I could imagine someone arguing back that the drug would affect a "healthy" person differently. Kind of like that tiredish old debate about if anti-depressents do anything beneficial for a nondepressed person, if ADD drugs offer any benefit to a non-ADD person, etc. I can just picture a group of psychiatrists deducing zyprexa made them feel weird because they are not psychotic. I read an article once about a drug expo where one of the companies built some kind of "schizophrenia tank" that psychiatrists could enter to "experience what the world is like for patients". I'm sure it was very dramatic-I remember reading that it was full of flashing lights and noises. The point was that the drug therapy with the sponsored product was very desperately urgent. However- no one seemed to address whether or not the tank was an accurate portrayal of anyone's experience, or exactly how the drug fit in.
