Zoloft Caused Mother to Want to Kill Her Newborn

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

As reported by CBS 11 News, a mother has started a crusade against antidepressants after being prescribed Zoloft after her son’s birth.  After taking the drug she recalled:

“As I walked past the stairs, I could see on the corner of my eyes what looked like me standing on the stairs holding him and then tossing him the rest of the way down to the bottom of the stairs.”

Funny enough, her life returned to normal once she stopped taking Zoloft.

Antidepressants Rake In Billions While Patients Suffer

Monday, September 5th, 2005

In a review of the book “Selling Sickness: How Drug Companies are Turning Us All into Patients” Phil Shannon reports about the pharmaceutical industries efforts to turn every day problems into diseases “treatable” by drugs. All in the name of profit.

Thirty years ago, the retiring head of the Merck pharmaceutical company told Fortune magazine that he was distressed that the market for his company’s drugs was limited to only sick people. If he could make drugs for healthy people, he would be able to “sell to everyone�. That dream is now coming true.

Human Rights Group Praises Tom Cruise For Speaking Out

Monday, September 5th, 2005

Vancouver (OPENPRESS) September 5, 2005 — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a psychiatric watchdog group, said Tom Cruise’s remarks on NBC’s Today Show recently represent a growing public awareness about the national crisis of children and adults being prescribed damaging mind-altering drugs.

Brian Beaumont, President of the British Columbia chapter of CCHR said, “The Today Show interview was a warning that people need to be beware of psychiatry and its purported research rather than accepting at face value concepts such as a chemical imbalance in the brain causing their problems, which can deny them real help.”

Antidepressants Prescribed For Post Partum Depression Cause Birth Defects

Thursday, September 1st, 2005

In another news article vindicating Tom Cruise, Scientists have discovered that antidepressants cause a dramatic increase in birth defects. A recent medical study showed that the risks of a baby having heart defects were increased by 60 percent if their mother had taken antidepressant drugs like Paxil, Prozac and Zoloft. There was also an increased risk for premature birth and other malformations of the baby. The results of the study were presented at last week’s International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology conference in Nashville.

Scientists Say There Is No Such Thing As Schizophrenia

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

According to Dr. Richard Bentall, Professor in Experimental Clinical Psychology, and his colleagues have made a statement that many of the arbitrary categories for psychiatric diseases are unworkable and perhaps even false. The biologic disease theory is flawed and often doesn’t result in long term results for the patient.

He even goes so far as to say that “diseases” like Schizophrenia may not even exist at all.

16 Scientific Studies Confirm It, Antidepressants Cause People To Commit Suicide

Monday, August 22nd, 2005

Antidepressants like Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft have been the big topic in the news lately. It seems that much of the scientific evidence showing the link between suicide and antidepressants has been being kept secret by the big drug companies like Glaxo Smith Kline, Eli Lilly and Pfizer.

I guess I could see why… Who wants to tell their customers: “Not only do our drugs make you fat and kill your sex drive, but they also make you want to kill yourself”!

Antidepressants Can Make You Fat

Friday, August 19th, 2005

While browsing the news today, I learned of a new side effect from psychiatric drugs like antidepressants (Prozac, Zoloft & Paxil), Zyprexa, Risperdal and other drugs prescribed for psychiatric reasons. That side effect is weight gain. Apparently, in some cases, drastic weight gain (to the tune of over 100 pounds). Yesterday, the New York Times has pointed this out in an article about some drugs causing weight gain.

While this is a minor side effect when compared to death, suicide and psychosis - I nonetheless thought I should point this out.

Antidepressant Side Effects Cause Psychosis

Thursday, August 18th, 2005

I recently came across this article stating that people were experiencing such powerful drug side effects from antidepressants (like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and others) that hundreds of thousands of Americans were being locked up in psychiatric institutions every year as a direct result of psychosis caused by the drugs themselves. So these drugs actually caused insanity instead of curing depression!

I was a little skeptical at first. So I did a some research of my own. Turns out, they were right: Psychiatric drug side effects are causing people to go insane. In fact, they are being effected so much that they are being sent to mental institutions for treatment.

Group Says Antidepressants Can Induce Violence and Suicide

Sunday, July 31st, 2005

The International Coalition for Drug Awareness and the Prozac Survivors Support Group is reporting that antidepressants are causing violent behavior in the patients who are taking them.

They are calling for immediate Federal action to warn the public about the dangers of violence caused by the side effects of these psychiatric antidepressant medications. It is widely known that these types of drugs increase the chances of a patient committing suicide by up to 3 times. In fact, the FDA already requires a special black label warning on Antidepressants like Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft stating that these drugs cause an increase in suicidal thoughts and actions. Now these groups are calling for a broad campaign to warn the public against the added dangers of violent behavior caused by antidepressants.

Doctors Speak Out Against Brook Shields Dangerous Position On Antidepressants for Post Partum Depression

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

Not only has the FDA issued a warning that adults have increased risks for suicide, but doctors are speaking out against the irresponsible statements of Brook Shields who advocates psychiatric drugs for Post Partum Depression.

The article linked to above shows that many doctors feel that Post Partum Depression is not a psychiatric brain disorder, but in fact a result of problems within other areas of the body. Some examples she gave for proper treatments were: “Blood sugar imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, low adrenal gland function, thyroid imbalance and copper and zinc deficiencies should all be tested for. The last thing you need is an antidepressant masking or messing with this.”
