Antipsychotics and Antidepressants used to castrate sex offenders

Believe it or not antidepressants and antipsychotics are used in testing to chemically castrate sex offenders. Something that somebody thinking about having them or parents wondering about giving them to their child should really think about. 

Here are a couple of simple resources that your advising psychiatrist probably hasn't told you about that you might wish to be privy to know about first.

How could he not tell you? Maybe, National Health Service funded or not... His real job is for the pharmaceutical companies. What happens to your child is merely a washed hands of aftercare that makes a good living for the happily blinded dealer. Why is the state doing this to children? Why are the real psychopaths trying to steal lives and rape the parents natural trust in trying to do the best for their child sitting on the other side of that desk?

But I digress, take a read you deserve to have.

Drug treatments for sexual offenders or those at risk of offending

"Medications used to treat sex offenders ('antilibidinal' medications) act by limiting the sexual drive (libido). There are two types, those which work by suppressing testosterone (e.g., progestogens, antiandrogens, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogues), and those that reduce sexual drive by other mechanisms (i.e., antipsychotics and serotonergic antidepressants (SSRIs)).

We reviewed evidence for the effectiveness of such drugs in people who were convicted or thought to be at risk of committing sexual offences."
