There is no comparison between the dangers and risks of psychiatric medications compared to antibiotics. There is low risk with antibiotics. The greatest risk is the same as antidepressants - suicide. Drugs can cause otherwise sane people to kill themselves. Paxil has done that. Zoloft has done that. TCAs have done that. Twisting the mind in controlled experiments is not exactly risk-free.

The most common risk with antibiotics is yeast infection or disharmony in the intestines. That is easily prevented and remedied with 100billiion probiotics per day. Some antibiotics can cause tendonitis and bone problems. That can be managed by short term usage, not long term, and substituting other choices. Of note, some people have reported that it required that deep bone penetration to fully cure their disease - Bartonella specifically - also the most profound infection producing every psychiatric thing we experience at babble. Bartonella.

In the case of antibiotics suicide is a risk because of the Herxheimer reaction - die off toxiicity which can cause deep depression.

Psych drugs carry far more risk than antibiotics, with far less potential benefit. Antibiotics have much lower risk and much higher potential benefit.

All of this is just my opinion. Based on extensive experience with both camps of this discussion. Wisdom guided by experience.

I think it makes sense to weigh risks against potential benefits.

We don't see potential benefits of psych drugs turn out the way we hope hardly ever.
