I've often wondered if certain medications have done more harm than good. Every time I'm prescribed something new it scares me a little bit because there's no way of knowing how it will effect me, there are always several weeks of "wait and see what happens." It would be wonderful if there were some way to know in advance how a person would respond to certain types of meds. There is so little pdocs know about how these things work it isn't hard to believe they could cause the very problems they're trying to treat. (Don't get me wrong, there have been a number of wonderful meds that helped improve the quality of my life. I wouldn't give those up for anything.) If I find any useful research on the subject I'll post it here.
