18. Medications have their uses. This thread isn't about trashing meds, but

about the profiteering and politics that drive so much of what should be a rational and evidence-based classification enterprise. It isn't the meds themselves but the way they interact with the profit motives of the various players to produce distorted health care practices that is of concern here. The DSM is deeply entangled in this whole system, and will be a disaster when and if it arrives in anything like its currently proposed shape.

A lot of people are threatening to go to ICD-10 if DSM retains its problems.
