Is there an actual brain scan for mental illness?
Currently there is not. If someone is diagnosed with a mental illness and they ask the doctor to give them proof, he or she won’t be able to. The doctors would have determined they had a mental illness based on yes or no questions and feelings that were provided but in no way do they know scientifically the person has X.
This is unlike diabetes as the drug companies like to promote where there is an actual test that measures someone’s insulin levels.
When a person is prescribed a psychiatric drug and they take it, the drug effects will lower or raise their neurotransmitter levels depending on what they were diagnosed with and that is how they start developing the chronic symptoms the doctors said they had in the beginning.
It can be extremely hard to get off the drug and if the person gets off suddenly, it can cause a dangerous episode.
