on Deadly Psychotropics
All classes of psychiatric drugs reduce, atrophy and kill brain cells. All can cause lasting brain damage and mental dysfunction when used for months or years.
Although research data is lacking for a few individual drugs in each class, until proven otherwise it is prudent and safest to assume that the risks of brain damage and permanent mental dysfunction apply to every single psychiatric drug. — Peter Breggin, psychiatrist
"There are no objective tests in psychiatry-no X-ray, laboratory, or exam finding that says definitively that someone does or does not have a mental disorder." "It's bull—. I mean, you just can't define it." — Allen Frances, Psychiatrist and former DSM-IV Task Force Chairman Allen Frances, Psychiatrist and former DSM-IV Task Force Chairman
"Virtually anyone at any given time can meet the criteria for bipolar disorder or ADHD. Anyone. And the problem is everyone diagnosed with even one of these 'illnesses' triggers the pill dispenser." — Dr. Stefan Kruszewski, Psychiatrist
Psychiatric drugs are more dangerous than you have ever imagined. If you haven't been prescribed one yet, you are among the lucky few. If you or a loved one are taking psychiatric drugs, there is hope; but you need to understand the dangers and how to minimize the risk.
Yes people experience depression, anxiety and sadness, children do act out and/or misbehave, and yes, some people can become irrational and/or psychotic. This doesn't make them 'diseased' and there is no evidence of physical/medical abnormality for any psychiatric disorder whether its Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Schizophrenia. This doesn't mean that there aren't solutions for people experiencing difficulty, there are non harmful, medical alternatives. But they do not require a psychiatric "label" to treat them. There is no mental illness test that is scientifically/medically proven. This isn't a matter of opinion, psychiatrists who are opposed to the labeling of behaviors as mental illness openly admit this, and even the American Psychiatric Association admits this
Antipsychotic drugs, including both older and newer ones, cause shrinkage (atrophy) of the brain in many human brain scan studies and in animal autopsy studies. The newer atypicals especially cause a well-documented metabolic syndrome including elevated blood sugar, diabetes, increased cholesterol, obesity and hypertension. They also produce dangerous cardiac arrhythmias and unexplained sudden death, and they significantly reduce longevity. In addition, they cause all the problems of the older drugs, such as Thorazine and Haldol, including tardive dyskinesia, a largely permanent and sometimes disabling and painful movement disorder caused by brain damage and biochemical disruptions.
