Today is Prescribed Harm Awareness Day

Stephen O’Neill died an akathisia-induced death despite that he informed his prescribers that the product they gave him, Zoloft, was creating suicidal thoughts–thoughts he never experienced prior to prescription.

After Stephen died in Ireland, his family started Stephen’s Voice to help others be safer. Today is the first Prescribed Harm Awareness Day, sponsored by Stephen’s Voice. Regardless of where you live in the world, one thing is certain: nobody is immune to akathisia and other serious adverse drug effects.
