Neuropsychiatric Drugs

Neuropsychiatric drugs are a class of medications used for the abatement or treatment of mood disorders. While for most people these drugs can be highly effective, for others, they can result in a worsening of symptoms or even death due to severe allergic reactions. These drugs are in some situations more destructive than the original disorder. For example, some neuropsychiatric drug prescriptions for minors or adolescents are contraindicated due to an increased risk of suicide and self-harm. Our firm specializes in an even more catastrophic allergic reaction to neuropsychiatric drugs, called Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), which are serious life-threatening catastrophic skin disorders that can also result in blindness, organ dysfunction and death. Symptoms include rashes, redness, blisters and eventually can entail the shedding of major parts of the victim’s body surfaces. Stevens-Johnson is almost always caused by a strong and severe allergic reaction to certain over the counter and prescription drugs. SJS is a painful disease, which can cause graphic skin loss of between 10% and 30% of total skin mass. TEN is recognized as an even worse form of SJS where more than 30% of the body’s skin mass is affected. Both of these diseases can also cause blindness, organ damage, disfigurement, and even death.
