Congressman Wu’s bizarre behavior due to psychiatric drugs?

In a tale that many mainstream media outlets are attempting to use as a political smear campaign, the story of US Rep. David Wu’s severe negative reaction to a common psychiatric drug speaks more about the dangers of pharmaceutical drugs than it does partisan politics. According to reports, Wu was hospitalized in 2008 for severe reactions to an unnamed psychiatric drug which caused him to display erratic and strange behavior, including the sending of personal photos of himself in a tiger costume to his staffers.
Though Wu denies that the photo incident — which took place two years after his hospitalization in 2008 — is directly connected to the psychiatric drug, such behavior suggests at least a possible connection. Other odd behavioral events include excessive bouts of severe anger, demonstrations of impatience for no apparent reason, and even episodes where Wu disappeared and nobody was able to find him.
Wu has refused to identify the drug that led to his hospitalization, and insists that extreme campaign stress, his divorce, and having to raise his children alone, are among the reasons why his behavior began to spiral out of control. Wu’s spokesman Erik Dorey, however, has stated that Wu is “clearly acknowledging” that he has a medical issue, but did not provide any further details.
In a recent interview with KGW NewsChannel 8 in Portland, Wu repeatedly apologized for his behavior, and reiterated that he has no plans to resign, despite the controversy. He says he is now in a “good place,” having since recovered from a “rough patch during an election.”
But what has not been adequately explained is what Wu took that triggered his severe mental reaction. Some reports speculate that the drug given to Wu by his campaign donor was Oxycodone, but Wu insists that he was unaware of what drug he took. Interestingly, oxycodone is among the top prescription drugs responsible for emergency room visits
