    Abilify (aripiprazole), an antipsychotic drug being promoted as an add-on drug for people who are depressed, caused an average weight gain of 2 pounds in a four month study of Bipolar patients according to a study from Italy.

    I am completely against the use of this drug or any other antipsychotic for depression.

    The idea seems insane to me.

    Schizophrenics given antipsychotics did WORSE in the long run

    Schizophrenics given antipsychotics did WORSE in the long run than those given no drugs at all

    Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD noted many years ago that researchers found that schizophrenics given antipsychotics did WORSE in the long run than schizophrenics who were given no drugs at all.

    Back in the 1950’s, Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, discovered that large doses of niacin doubled the rate of recovery from acute schizophrenia from 35% to 75%.

    Yes, really, although this still has not been recognized more than 50 years later even though this research has been duplicated by others.

     

    Suicides 22 Times Greater in Schizophrenics Given Antipsychotics

    Suicides were 22 times HIGHER among schizophrenics given antipsychotics (tranquilizers) compared to the normal population compared to NO suicides in his vitamin-treated groups

    In 1964, Abram Hoffer noted that suicides were 22 times HIGHER among people given antipsychotics (tranquilizers) compared to the normal population compared to NO suicides in his vitamin-treated groups.

    In 1964, Hoffer wrote “We believe any drug which produced this high a mortality would soon be removed unless of course no other drugs were available to treat the conditions which untreated produced a much higher risk of death.”

     

    Antipsychotic group (tranquilizer group) fared worse according to 1975 paper

    Suicides were 22 times HIGHER among schizophrenics given antipsychotics (tranquilizers) compared to the normal population compared to NO suicides in his vitamin-treated groups

    Hoffer also noted that “Eleven years later Bockoven and Solomon (1975) also found that tranquilizers did not improve the long term prognosis of schizophrenic patients… They concluded that the outcome was almost the same with one possible exception, the tranquilizer group fared worse and required much more social supports for them to keep going. Almost every thorough study published since them has shown the same results.”

     

    Tranquilizers (antipsychotics) convert one psychosis to another

    Tranquilizers (antipsychotics) convert one psychosis to another in schizophrenics

    He also notes that “Tranquilizers (antipsychotics) convert one psychosis to another. This was first pointed out by Prof Meyer-Gross, shortly after these drugs were introduced from France into England and the US. He said “Tranquilizers convert one psychosis into another. “The tranquilizer psychosis prevents the unfortunate patient from becoming a normal member of society because with these symptoms no one can function at jobs or occupations where these symptoms and signs are a handicap…”

    So giving these drugs for depression seems like a really bad idea to me.
