Crazy people

I wonder if anybody is tracking the number of prescriptions that are NOT being filled.

Number of prescriptions written in 2017 for Atypical Antipsychotics. AAs are a class of drugs often prescribed for manic behavior, bipolar, anger management issues and schizophrenia.
I am simply pointing out that people with anxiety disorders and depression might be fearful in theses times of C-19. Many emotional health issues are a tangled knot of messy comorbidities. It is reasonable to hypothesize that some patients who become extremely violent without Antipsychotic meds are not taking them.

I just want to know: Have deliveries at the retail level stayed the same, gone up or dropped? If they dropped, by how much? 1%? 5%? 10%? 25%?

    You show an absolute mastery of discussing subjects that would set your readers' hair on fire but for the calm and reasoned manner in which they are raised and discussed. Well done,sirrah, and well played.
