INTRODUCTION: Pharmacology is interdisciplinary science and of fundamental importance for enormous problems of humanity. Creation of an integrative psychopharmacotherapy in context of a multidimensional&holistic medicine, founded by HIPPOCRATES-GALENUS-HUA T'UA-PARACELSUS is necessary to counteract disastrous human situation.
CONCEPTION: Theoretical approaches about discussion for an integrative psychiatry. During Opening-Ceremony of 18thWorld-Congress Psychosomatic-Medicine (ICPM 2005 Kobe) were present their majesties Emperor&Empress of Japan, Prime&Ministers for Science-Education-others&prominent scientists. Emperor AKIHITO honored congress by strategical ideas, available also for all anthropological-health sciences: total symptoms of mind&body, seeking ways of holistic care - it is extremely important for patients - my hope contributes
 - the progress of medical science and people's happiness in the entire world.
Yujiro IKEMI/Ex-President of ICPM opened new dimension not only in psychosomatics&psychiatry, but also in general-medicine&psychology by integration of oriental somatopsychic theory&self-regulation practices (Yoga/Qigong/Zen-meditation/etc.) with occidental psychosomatics (Th.von UEXKUELL).
Pharmacology cannot give solutions for health problems, but this central interdisciplinary medical science is necessary to give medical help by pharmacotherapy together with somatopsychic & psychosomatic therapy.
The role of modern pharmacology is ambivalent: Scientific advances constitute the basis of pharmacological development, but misuse of discoveries and economic factors lead to disastrous repercussions typified by dependency on drugs, etc. Paradigm change in scientific congress-praxis could counteract this situation. It has to be discussed:
1. Organization of interdisciplinary satellite-conferences to IUPHAR-IUTOX,etc. considering philosophical-psychological-biological-economic problems related to pharmacotherapy.
2. New models for integrative psychopharmacotherapy, e.g. interaction of factors to psychoneuroimmunomodulation and pharmacological immunosuppression.
3. Foundation of an International Academy for Pharmaco-Toxicology, e.g. in Kyoto-Tokyo, similar to Eur.Acad.Neurology/EAN, founded 2015 in Berlin, but with continental branches.
CONCLUSION. Albert Szent-Gyoergyi/Nobelprice for Vitamin C in biocatalysis: There is but one safe way to avoid mistakes: To do nothing, or at least to avoid something new: This, however, in itself may be the greatest mistake of all (in Bioenergetics: Foreword 1957).
