Needless to say, I do not agree with Tom Cruise's assessment of psychiatric medications as being harmful and having no basis in science. Tell that to the many, many of us who are functioning today because of them. Being over medicated is not a good idea, but neither is throwing out the medical baby with the bathwater and criticizing all medication as harmful.
Cruise says that actress Brook Sheilds is being "irresponsible" for "promoting" the fact that medication helped her post partum depression. On the contrary, Tom, I think you are being irresponsible for planting the seed of fear in many people with mental illness--fear that many of them can ill afford to have.
