Per FDA: Antidpressants – 1,700% Increase In Psychiatric Drug Warnings

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.

Drug Lobbyists Go After the Brains of Children

Big Pharma´s drug lobby machine (the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America) increased its financial arm-twisting of Congress by 25% in 2007 – in an effort to ward off competition and lock in bogus psychiatric medication sales to children. 

 

Drug companies are struggling because their products don´t work for preventive health and they can´t make money just using them for appropriate uses. Their main trade group [PhRMA] spent $22 million in 2007 to buy favors from Congress. 

 

Partly this money was spent trying to maintain a legal monopoly – such as blocking less expensive drug re-importation, preventing fair-price drug negotiations for Medicare, manipulating patent laws to extend drug profits, and ensuring direct to consumer ads continue. 

 

However, most of the increase in spending was to get Congress to reauthorize the State Children´s Health Insurance Program, a program to get and keep low-income kids on mind altering drugs – a cash cow worth billions for Big Pharma. These drugs cause permanent adverse alterations in the developing nervous system of children. There is a reason every school-related mass murder involves shooters that have been on psych drugs. 

 

I´m all in favor of needed health care for any child. However, psych drugs do not replace the responsibility of parents to provide a home and family, the quality of food fed to children, and learning skills about how to live. Solving this problem is easy – provide health care for children but don´t cover the sale of any psych medication. Immediately you would find that Big Pharma no longer cares about children´s health.

Psychiatric Drug Adverse Reactions (Side Effects) and Medication Spellbinding

Dr. Peter Breggin’s new concept of medication spellbinding provides insights into why so many people take psychiatric drugs when the drugs are doing more harm than good.  Psychiatric drugs, and all other drugs that affect the mind, spellbind the individual by masking their adverse mental effects from the individual taking the drugs.  If the person experiences a mental side effect, such as anger or sadness, he or she is likely to attribute it to something other than drug, perhaps blaming it on a loved one or on their own “mental illness.”  Often people taking psychiatric drugs claim to feel better than ever when in reality their mental life and behavior is impaired.  In the extreme, medication spellbinding leads otherwise well-functioning and ethical individuals to committee criminal acts, violence or suicide.   Read the rest of this entry »

Pharma Funding Controversy Hones In on Psychiatry


Vermont AG Calls Heavy Weight of Drug Money Towards Psychiatrists “Troubling”


Thursday, September 11, 2008

The psychiatric watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), says the July 2008 Vermont Attorney General report revealing psychiatrists again top the list of doctors receiving Pharma payments, coupled with recent investigations into Pharma funds influencing psychiatric drug studies, prescribing patterns and the creation of new mental “disorders,” merits a federal investigation for conflicts of interest that is long overdue. The organization created a new website containing recent reports, disclosures, documents and videos exposing the major conflicts of interest between psychiatry and the Pharmaceutical industry called PsychConflicts.org, The Unholy Alliance.
