The Dangers of Psychiatric Drugs

The number of people needlessly hurt or killed by prescription drugs has become staggering. A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that in one year, over two million patients suffered serious drug reactions, resulting in 106,000 deaths. Another article in JAMA estimated that only 1 in 20 reactions are reported. Prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.

Drug makers claim that antidepressants are not "habit forming" but fail to mention that all antidepressants can cause withdrawal. People often do not realize that withdrawal is causing their symptoms.

Dr. Grace Jackson opines: "There is no rational science behind what they think is the cause of these symptoms. The medications that are being given to people are, without exception, introducing chemicals that are altering the brain in ways which can be damaging. I'll go a step farther, that in the absence of a proven chemical imbalance for which the medication is, quote, 're-balancing or fixing', the medications are in fact toxic."

Dr. Moira Dolan, M.D added: "So here we have hostility, paranoia, agitation, combined with the akathisia, which is the sense that I've got to do something, and you can see how these can all add up to irrational murders. The string of school shootings that we have seen is strictly a phenomena that coincides with the massive use of antidepressant drugs over the past 15 to 20 years. It was not something that was seen in the 20 years earlier. In the 20 years that we have seen an increase in mass murders and people who are chemically altered by antidepressant medications, there's been nothing but an increase in gun control."
