Myron May was an attorney and former Prosecutor in New Mexico. Having trouble concentrating at work, he turned to a psychologist for help. He was prescribed two psychiatric drugs that carry FDA-mandated warnings that the drugs can cause panic attacks. Predictably, he then experienced a panic attack at work. He returned to the psychologist and got “an adjustment” to the drugs. With his new combination of drugs, he began exhibiting paranoia, hearing voices, experiencing hallucinations. He couldn’t sleep, and began experiencing homicidal ideation. He checked himself into a psychiatric ward, was given another drug and released, only to continue to have homicidal ideation. When May’s friends called the mental health practitioner they were told that the doctor “couldn’t do anything”.
