Science Proves Antidepressants Addictive. Withdrawal Unbearable For Some.

Sunday, August 6th, 2006

As psychiatry and the giant pharmaceutical companies fight to create a PR spin that antidepressants are harmless non-addictive drugs – the truth is beginning to come out showing the dangers of these drugs. Along with horrific side effects these drugs produce while you take them, they are now proving for some people to be nearly impossible to stop taking. As this article by the Associated Press proves many patients experience terrible antidepressant withdrawal so severe that some appear to be hooked on antidepressants for life.

The Associated Press article provides an example of one of the victims side effects and withdrawal symptoms. In the article they state:

Tom Cruise Is Right About Child Psychiatric Drugs

Wednesday, September 28th, 2005

I recently read an article in the LA Times about Tom Cruise and his fight against psychiatry. The article points out the truth behind his message against psychiatry’s drugging of children and the fact that two other major celebrities are self acknowledged victims of psychiatry’s betrayal of children. The article says: “WHEN TOM CRUISE and his fellow Scientologists took a hammering earlier this year for their public opposition to psychiatric drugs, neither they nor their critics could have anticipated the releases in July and August of two weighty reports offering evidence that at least some psychiatric prescription-writing has run amok.”

Psychiatric Treatment For Children - Put Them In Cages

Sunday, September 18th, 2005

This has become a high profile issue recently due to a news article about the foster parents who were allegedly advised by a psychiatrist to keep their children in cages. This should come as no surprise though - putting children in cages as a form of treatment has been in use by psychiatry for over 200 years. Rather than actually curing patients psychiatric hospitals often just sedate patients with drugs, restrain them or lock them up.

Antidepressants Alleged To Have Caused Man’s Suicide

Friday, September 9th, 2005

I just found this press release about a man who after taking Zoloft for only a short time killed himself unexpectedly. Below are some clips about his suicide and how it related to recent warnings that antidepressants cause suicide.

Russell Johnson, a 54-year-old Nebraska native who spent much of his life in O’Neill, survived cancer surgery two years ago and was talking about retiring, maybe moving to South Dakota.

And then one summer day, without warning, he left the job he’d had for 28 years, went home for lunch and shot himself, according to family members.

Electro-Shock Therapy Caused Brain Damage - Psychiatrist Ordered To Pay $635,000 in Damages

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

I recently found this article about a jury that found a psychiatrist liable for causing brain damage to his patient. The patient was referred for intensive electroshock procedures (practitioners prefer to call it, electro-convulsive treatment ECT) that left her permanently damaged. The patient, Peggy S. Salters is a 60 year old former psychiatric nurse. She was subjected to 13 electroshocks over the course of about 2 weeks. The jury found that her loss of 30 years of memory and cognitive impairment–which are demonstrable symptoms of brain damage–was due to ECT. They awarded her over $635,000 in damages. The hospital where the procedure took place had previously settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.

9 Of The Recent School Shooters Were Taking Psychiatrys Violence Inducing Drugs

Tuesday, September 6th, 2005

(OPENPRESS) September 5, 2005 — Todd Cameron Smith, the boy the police captured after he escaped from a Toronto, Ontario group home recently, was the 4th out of 9 school shooters who were taking one or another of psychiatry’s violence inducing drugs at the time of the shooting.

On April 28, 1999, Todd walked into his Taber Alberta high school with a sawed-off shotgun and shot and killed 16-year-old Jason Lang and wounded another boy. He was subsequently convicted in an Alberta, court trial, and then transferred to Ontario, Canada to serve his sentence.

Psychiatric Disorders are a Fraud

Monday, September 5th, 2005

(OPENPRESS) September 4, 2005 — The psychiatric profession purports to be the sole arbiter on the subject of mental health and “diseases” of the mind. However, psychiatric “disordersâ€? are not medical diseases and psychiatrists admit in their own literature that they have no idea how the mind works.

In medicine, strict criteria exist for calling a condition a disease: a predictable group of symptoms and the cause of the symptoms or an understanding of their physiology (function) must be proven and established. Chills and fever are symptoms. Malaria and typhoid are diseases. Diseases are proven to exist by objective evidence and physical tests. Yet, no mental “diseases” have ever been proven to medically exist.

FDA Fails To Protect From Antidepressant Drug Side Effects

Sunday, August 14th, 2005

I recently found this very informative article about a recent protest of the FDA’s handling of psychiatric drugs. The protest is over how the FDA seems to actually be working in the best interest of the drug companies instead of the public. I would say that I have to agree with them.

The amazing thing about this article is that it quotes over 20 real-life examples of families who’s lives have been torn apart by the suicide and violence that occurs after the use of antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs like Ritalin. Over and over the story is the same - someone starts taking these drugs and then commits horrible acts of violence on themselves, their families and often their own children.

Psychiatrists Grab Immigrants, Drug Them And Lock Them Up

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2005

Psychiatrists in Australia have a unique way of getting new patients. Apparently a loophole in Australian Immigration law permits them to forcibly commit some immigrants where over half of them are drugged with powerful mind altering psychiatric drugs.

Amnesty International is reporting that Australia’s mandatory detention continues to inflict psychological damage on detained immigrants. It cites the case of Peter Qasim, Australia’s longest-serving immigration detainee, who was committed to an Adelaide psychiatric hospital after almost seven years in detention.

Children Forced To Use Psychiatric Drugs By Their Schools

Saturday, July 9th, 2005

Hopefully this horrible practice of schools intimidating and forcing parents to drug their children will end soon. Often parents are coerced to put their kids on drugs like prozac and ritalin.

This article on a parent who had to fight hard against her child’s school just to keep her kid of Ritalin is an all too common example.

A bill sponsored by Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., a member of the House Education Committee, would extend the Child Medication Safety Act to include psychotropic drugs such as Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft. This is a much needed extension to the bill which would help bolster parents rights and the human rights of our children.
