I have some pretty major misgivings with the psychiatry and in particular the pharmaceutical industry but in an acute psychotic state like what I suspect Ryan was in, I don't see any of the kinds of things in here that I think are inappropriate. These meds listed look like they have an intention of stabilizing hiim to see what needs to be done. I get more upset when they get someone in and they are in a crisis like this and they give him a bunch of long-term meds which the haliperidol could be but it can also be used for short action.
we also don't know what kind of medical history Ryan has here. He could have a long history of hospitalization or psychiatric problems that is very private. He may have undergone the same treatment in the past successfully many times. This to me is a situation we we only ever get th einformation that is released to create a stir but never the truth because so much of the information is his and his family's business. Lawyers like to paint pictures that make money.
