What does Pharmacomania and Psychopharmacomania™ have to do with mental illness and the pharmaceutical industry? Pharmacomania is an obsession with giving and taking drugs of any kind in any situation for any reason. Psychopharmacomania is the temporary and or permanent damage that results to the human brain from the onslaught of these powerful psychotropic chemicals. The extent of the damage is directly proportional to the dosage and duration and unfortunately not reversible in some cases. So you think street drugs are the biggest danger, and only alcohol causes “wet brain”! Of course pharmaceutical medications, specifically psychotropic medications are prescribed by doctors, not pushers! Well the truth be told, that pharmaceutical drugs are extremely dangerous and can cause irreversible brain damage often leaving the mental health seeker much sicker then at the beginning of their journey to wellness. Psychopharmacomania is a form of brain damage caused by psycho pharmaceuticals, and the drug companies themselves have produced the studies that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the treacherous nature of their documented side effects. There is hope! You can recover mind, body, spirit and soul.
