Barry Blackwell: Corporate Corruption in the Psychopharmaceutical Industry

Samuel Gershon’s question


You refer in your essay to the decline of interest in the use and sale of lithium to treat a condition uniquely responsive to it. I think that this decline is due to pharma promotion of all antipsychotics as a general panacea class of treatment that includes bipolar disorder and decrease in teaching about its use. Do you agree?
