PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS

Psychiatric drugs create ‘more harm than good’ notes Prof. Peter Gotzsche, MD

“In 2012, I found out that the ten biggest drug companies in the world commit repeated and serious crimes to such a degree that they fulfill the criteria for organised crime under US law,” notes Prof. Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD, author of the new book “Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare”.

“They involve colossal thefts of public monies and they contribute substantially to the fact that our drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.”

"In June [ 2008 ], a Congressional investigation revealed that Dr. Biederman had failed to report to Harvard at least $1.4 million in outside income from Johnson & Johnson and other makers of antipsychotic medicines." Read the entire article | Email this article

DRUG MONEY

Study abstract claimed antipsychotic Risperdal worked better than placebo, but this was NOT true

A study of the antipsychotic drug, Risperdal, in children with disruptive behavior disorder found that "children given placebos and those given Risperdal both improved significantly" according to an article in the New York Times titled "Research Center Tied to Drug Company".

However, the draft abstract for the study that was sent from Dr. Gahan Pandina, a Johnson & Johnson executive, to the lead author of the study, world-renowned child psychiatrist, Joseph Biederman, MD from Harvard University, who has helped fuel the 40-fold increase in the diagnosis of bipolar disorder in children, and the rapid rise in the use of powerful, risky and expensive antipsychotic drugs in children, stated that "only the children given Risperdal improved, while those given placebos did not" according to the New York Times article.

"I will review this morning,” responded Dr. Biederman, according to the documents. "I will be happy to sign the forms if you could kindly send them to me." Read the entire article | Email this article

Harvard doctor behind explosion in antipsychotic drug use in children paid $1.6M by drug makers

Drug company salesman notes that all psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal symptoms

Gwen Olsen, author of "Confessions of an RX Drug Pusher", who worked as a sales representative for the drug companies for 15 years calling on doctors, notes that all psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal symptoms which are often worse than the initial condition.

Traditional psychiatrists will often tell you that that you are having "rebound anxiety" or "rebound depression" or "rebound psychosis", and that you need to take these drugs forever and will never be normal without them, but this is not true Gwen notes.

The withdrawal, according to Gwen, is your body trying to detoxify from these drugs. Read the entire article | Email this article
