APRIL – Adverse Psychiatric Reactions Information Link

Overview

Promoting awareness of medicines that can harm mental health. The aim of APRIL (Adverse Psychiatric Reactions Information Link) is to fill a gap in medical and public awareness that everday medicines, anaesthetics and the drugs used pre and post surgery, can cause psychiatric adverse reactions. From mood swings, nightmares, insomnia to serious depression, psychosis, suicidal or homicidal behaviour.  These can also be withdrawal reactions from a missed dose or due to dependence on addictive medicines including benzodiazepine sleeping pills and tranquilisers, Z drugs, opioid pain killers and some antidepressants.

On the website you can look up specific types of drugs.
