April – Adverse Psychiatric Reactions Information Link

< Back to directory

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 everyday 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 and report your experience with adverse drug reactions (ADRs) or withdrawal effects.
