Latest FDA Warnings On Antidpressants Marks 1,700% Increase In Psychiatric Drug Warnings

 In only the past 4 years there have been 20 government warnings regarding the dangers of psychiatry’s drugs by five different countries.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PR Log (Press Release)Aug 24, 2006 – On July 21st, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asked antidepressant drug makers to add two more warnings to the drug labels. According to the FDA, antidepressants such as Paxil, Prozac or Zoloft taken during pregnancy can cause the newborn to develop a fatal lung disease. The FDA also warned that taking antidepressants with certain migraine drugs can lead to “serotonin syndrome,” which can lead to hallucinations, vomiting, blood pressure changes, restlessness and death.  These two most recent warnings about antidepressants may sound shocking, but they are consistent with the disturbing history of psychiatric drug warnings.

FDA and Big Pharma (PhRMA) in Bed Together!

Many of you are very familiar with Big Pharma.  Others are not.  So excue the definition if you already know this. 

Big Pharma is really the drug industry.  But there is actually a trade assocation, if you wish, entitled, “PhRMA” (The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America).  They will tell you that their members invested over $44.5 billion in 2007 in discovering and developing new medicines.  What they won’t tell you is that they are really a lobbying firm pushing made up diagnosis and their drugs as a cure.  They cure nothing.  They invest billions to sell trillions and then line their pockets individually with millions.  These drugs come with a host of side effects that put individuals in such a drugged state that half the time they don’t even notice all the side effects.  I am talking about thei psychotropic drugs; their antiepressants, antipsychotics, their stimulants (psychostimulants), their hypnotics, their tranquilizers and sleeping pills.

Vitamins, Minerals and Supplements at Risk!

“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls who live under tyranny”
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)

Do you purchase vitamins, minerals, supplements?

A friend of mine just sent me an urgent notice stating that those of us who purchase alternative health products such as vitamins, minerals, seek nutritionists’ advice, etc. are now threatened to lose this right.  Please read the below letter.

Dear Friends,

I just established the American Wellness Coalition to handle the following situation:

We the People of the United States are in danger of losing our freedoms to:

  • Purchase and take Natural Health products such as vitamins and nutritional supplements.
  • Go to independent, drug-free, Natural Health practitioners such as acupuncturists, chiropractors, doctors of naturopathy, herbalists and wellness specialists. Read the rest of this entry »

Overhauling the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

The Wall Street Journal reports that Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep.
John Dingell are taking the lead in calling for revamping the FDA which is
recognized as being “too cozy with the companies they regulate.”

“The lawmakers say an FDA restructuring should build a much taller wall
between the agency and the industry it regulates. The FDA would gain
authority to recall drugs, which it can’t do today, and to impose
significant fines on drug companies for safety violations. The lawmakers
also want the FDA to inspect generic-drug makers before approving a new
product. Perhaps most importantly, they want the next president to appoint a
tough FDA commissioner completely independent from the industry.” Read the rest of this entry »
