That's not a completely accurate description, the truth of the matter is that psychiatric pharmaceuticals have a different effect on everyone depending on brain chemistry. Since most psychiatrists prefer to simply shill out drugs and make money rather than test and treat problems, the process of finding the right compound for the individual patient involves far too much hit-or-miss trial and error. One of my best mates is in the middle of writing a book about how such a process fucked him up from age 10 to 20. Pro tip: Before taking an anti-depressant, try to determine if your depression is not in fact simply caused by being surrounded by assholes.
There is some truth to it.... I got on antidepressants, went to a therapist and was still suicidal. Still! So I quit my job working with three horrible assholes, mean girls with a reputation of being so terrible that they'd get people to quit....then I was just fine! Even without antidepressants! :) Not a Debbie downer at all....
Tardive dyskinesia is actually something that happens from antipsychotics through antagonism of dopamine receptors (less likely to occur with atypical antipsychotics). Antidepressants don't cause tardive dyskinesia since they act through seritonergic, norepinephrine and to a lesser extent dopaminergic pathways (Wellbutrin is a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor). Antipsychotics can certanily convert a person into mania if they have not been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder but that usually manifests in feelings of grandeur, excess energy, etc. Tremor is a side effect that can be caused by several different antidepressants. If it takes too long to get in and talk to your doctor, go see your pharmacist first. Do follow up with it though.
So when is he bringing the "stuff"?
Soon you'll be selling office supplies for hits, and holding coworkers up at stapler-point for more money, deadline tomorrow noon.
