EXCErPT: Jenelle's Story
as told to Douglas A. Smith

http://www.antipsychiatry.org/jenelle.htm

A few years ago, Jenelle got food poisoning and was given a
neuroleptic drug called Reglan (metoclopramide) to suppress vomiting.
The drug gave her a movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia almost
right away. Because of her strange body movements caused by the drug,
she was misdiagnosed as having a psychiatric problem and given other
psychiatric drugs called Thorazine, Haldol, and Xanax which worsened
her physical and mental condition. The psychiatric drugs she was
given that are called neuroleptics (Reglan, Thorazine, and Haldol)
damaged the parts of her nervous system responsible for motor control
enough to make her dependent on a wheelchair.
