Prozac Does Not Work

Wednesday, March 12th, 2008

Prozac, the bestselling antidpressant taken by over 40 million people, doesn’t work along with similar drugs in the same class.

As reported by the Guardian, patients improved the same amount when taking the placebo.

So given the link between anti-depressants, suicides, and school shootings, why would anyone take them???

Prozac Suicide Dangers Hidden - Charges Harvard Psychiatrist

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

I was recently revisiting the story about how the manufacturer of the drug Prozac, Eli Lilly, seemed to magically “misplace” important information showing the strong link between taking antidepressants and suicide. Apparently there were many drug trials that showed this long before the drug was ever approved and sold to the public.

In looking this over it really struck me that magnitude of this act. I did some quick math and it seems that hundreds of thousands of patients are probably dead today because of these suicidal side effects that were buried and hidden from the public. Millions more have likely suffered from thoughts of suicide or unsuccessful acts of suicide. Most of them probably will never know this was cause by the drugs they were taking.

Man On Prozac Stabs Pregnant Girlfriend In Stomach Murdering Two

Saturday, September 17th, 2005

Again I found another terrible murder committed by someone under the influence of Prozac. I have personally found dozens cases just like this one - and all of these just recently. The case histories go like this: Someone starts taking an antidepressant and then suddenly commits a terrible act of violence - Often on themselves or their family and sometimes on a complete stranger. It is usually completely unexpected.

In this case, it was 32 year old Gilberto Cano who brutally murdered his girlfriend and unborn child. He stabbed Martha Moreno in her pregnant belly 3 times and then strangled her.

Did Prozac cause this murder?

Teenagers, Children, Antidepressants and Suicide

Thursday, September 15th, 2005

Antidepressants for teenagers and children have become a controversial topic thanks to all the evidence that is surfacing linking the side effects of these drugs to suicides and violent behavior. For years many groups have been calling for the investigation of the side effects from drugs like Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft. Particularly when they are prescribed to children and young adults. This year the US FDA and several other governments have determined that antidepressants are causing the deaths of many children. Some have banned the drugs outright while others have required to place a strong warning label on these drugs.

14 Year Old Girl Commits Suicide While On Prozac

Sunday, September 11th, 2005

Here is yet another report of children killing themselves while taking popular antidepressants. This time it was a 14 year old girl who had recently been prescribed Prozac. As the article describes it:

“The child spent a week at Scarborough General Hospital and it was here that psychologists and psychiatrists began their journey to drive out whatever mental-illness demons were possessing her — beginning with counseling, and then moving from one anti-depressant drug to another, ending with Prozac.”

The girls mother recently heard about the FDA warnings that antidepressants cause a dramatic increase in suicide attempts in those taking them. So she called her daughters psychiatrist who assured her there was nothing to worry about. As she described it:

Don’t Betray The Katrina Hurricane Victims

Tuesday, September 6th, 2005

In a time of loss and destruction some people will try to take advantage of the weak and needy. The hurricane Katrina victims are about to find this out first hand. I have been recently seeing media reports that psychiatry and the big drug companies are gearing up to dish out millions of dollars of “free” psychiatric care and harmful psychiatric drugs to help “treat” the victims. Ultimately what the victims will discover once hooked on these powerful mind altering drugs is that the side effects (like suicide and psychosis) are awful and withdrawal from them is almost impossible.

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.”

Steep Decline In Antidepressant Prescriptions After FDA Warnings

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

The Psychiatric News is reporting that since the FDA has ordered drug companies to place a strong black box warnings on anti-depressants there has been nearly a 20% drop in the number of prescriptions for these drugs. The black box warning is over the drastic increase in the amount of people who kill themselves after taking these drugs. It seems that a big side effect of antidepressants like Paxil, Effexor, Prozac, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Zoloft and Remeron is an increase of up to 700% in the number of people who kill themselves. I think drugs that cause people to commit suicide should never be prescribed. So a 20% drop is just a good start.

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”!
