Hearing voices and talking to oneself doesn't mean you have a psychological problem or need medication. Those that drink alcohol or do mind affecting drugs have a chemical balance that changes that causes the problem of voices.
It is known that the so called baby asprins for heart conditions causes ringing in the ear.
Statin drugs cause memory loss from cholesterol removal and pains in the arm. Carpal tunnel from Statins is common and can be cured by the Vitamin B complex.
Many person on pharmaceutical mind drugs suffer this cruel or unusual change in brain activity from the pharmaceutical drugs (especially mind drugs) that is against the normal behavior in thoughts and stimulates profits for the mental health / pharmaceutical industries. Lets not overlook the trickle down money makers by irrational thoughts and actions like the legal profession, jail and prisons or those that suffer secondary health issues causing operations or medical treatment. Sounds Republican ALEC IMO.
You can see why the argument with the mental health DSM exists as it is a way to circumvent Federal, State and local laws with the APA falsehood of human reaction for their personal gain that is based on hearsay. Imagine the judiciary excepting hearsay....
There is no science to the mental health industry. No medical model. NO evidence based medicine. No test for chemical imbalance of the brain to which the APA admitted to the falsehood in 2004. The industry is based on hearsay and is political.
Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness
Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, California, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that there is no definition of a mental disorder. Its bullshit. I mean, you just cant define it. Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if hes taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Associations Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries. For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.
There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a

Here is the agenda of the Mental Health in the take over of the Judiciary Branch of government (by state) on the problem the industry caused in the USA.(Drug America) This is a similar takeover to what happen in the Public School System.
Mental Health Courts State Links
Mental Health Court by links
Establishing State Mental Health Courts
There is no science and there has never been a cure for mental illness.
There is no medical model. No evidence based medicine and the Mental Health / Pharmaceutical industry lied about Chemical imbalance to drug the population. There is no imaging (MRI) to declare a defective brain from a normal brain.
The Mental Health Industry is political and based on hearsay.
Psychiatry is fake science. The Thud Experiment proof.

The dirty deal of the Amino Acid Tryptophan
The MKULTRA project was a CIA initiative to control the thought and actions of people and was tested on unsuspecting American and Canadians during the 1950-1970. It is still happening today using psychotropic, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic and Statin drugs and involves children.
Bogus diagnoses by the mental Health Industry to which there is no science, no medical model, no evidence based medicine and no test for chemical balance is the political means of controlling the population by mind drugs, psychotherapy and Electro Shock Therapy and represents the greatest threat to any political structure including a Constitutional country like the USA. It is now happening on a Worldwide basis.
MKULTRA was followed up by the Hippie generation, then the controlling of the school system and eroding of parental authority (1989 -90). The limiting of the essential amino acid Tryptophan in the same time frame as Prozac entered the market place (1989).
This is the basis for the corruption of the Mental health / Pharmaceutical industry in the societies today using Pharmaceutical mind drugs.

Psychiatrists Becoming Doctor Joke_----_
There may actually be some good news coming out of academia.This really is a profession that has run amok, Robert Whitaker, author of Anatomy of an Epidemic said of psychiatrists in a recent interview with Celeste McGovern which appeared in Citizen magazine.People are beginning to question its legitimacy and they are beginning to mistrust its values, its diagnoses and its treatments.
McGovern writes that,Even medical students are avoiding it, he adds, as the average age of psychiatrists is now 57. Citizen is published by Focus on the Family. McGovern is based in the United Kingdom.
Every day in the United States, 850 adults and 250 children are added to the federal governments disability benefit rolls because of mental illness, McGovern reports.That means about 400,000 people are incapacitated each year, to say nothing of hundreds of thousands more diagnosed with less-crippling psychiatric illnesses.
The alarming growth rate of this phenomenon is reflected in American spending on psychiatric drugs: Between 1985 and 2007, spending on antidepressants and anti-psychotics alone multiplied nearly 50 times, from $503 million to more than $24 billion annually.
Part of this trend is catalogued in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental illness 5, compiled by the American Psychiatric Association.Its current version, the DSM-IV, last updated in 1994, defines 297 disorders based on diagnostic checklists of symptoms, McGovern relates.A diagnosis of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), for example, is given if clinicians can tick off six of a list of symptoms, including not listening,fidgeting and losing things.
Today, at least 3 million American children are taking amphetamine drugs like Ritalin as a result of ADHD diagnoses. The links between psychiatry and pharmaceuticals go deeper than is usually reported, McGovern shows.
Far from being an isolated case, a study from University of Massachusetts-Boston found that 70 percent of the psychiatrists working on the DSM-5 revision have financial ties to the industry, McGovern relates.
Stuart Kirk, professor emeritus of social welfare at UCLA told McGovern that Big Pharma has bought the profession of psychiatry, at least its leadership cadre. Kirk is the author of the forthcoming book, Mad Science: The Disorders of American Psychiatry.
