Yet Howard does not take or advocate medication. Why? In his autobiography <em>The Keeper</em><a href="https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/mds.91#mds91-bib-0001">1</a> and associated media interviews, he refers to such treatment as “a concoction of drugs for other ailments” and opinion that they “make you drowsy, make you zombie‐like.”</p>
