Both of you make excellent points - the key here seems to be that these drugs for many people may be *too dangerous* in the first month or so without hospitalization. But insurance companies won't pay for 4-6 weeks of hospitalization (they usually provide only 10 days or so.) Obviously for some it's not enough.
I'd be happy if Dr's would mention that restlessness/agitation is a MAJOR warning sign. I was told about insomnia, I was told about appetite problems. No one mentioned restlessness.
I was still trying to find out from my child's teacher what she meant by "having difficulty controlling himself, physically" meant when my son tried to kill himself in her classroom.
