Someone on Facebook shared with me a website on the “benefits” of LSD to get my response to this website that really upset her. The following is the comment I posted on their site to help them to see how insane what they have posted about LSD having “benefits” is and where it all came from! I thought you would find this information very interesting, especially if you have not yet learned it in reading my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
LSD & PCP MIMIC SEROTONIN TO PRODUCE HALLUCINATIONS
First you should know that LSD and PCP produce their hallucinogenic effects via mimicking serotonin. That is right, the same chemical you have heard so much about as a happy, warm, cuddly neurotransmitter that everyone needs to increase, especially if you are anxious or depressed!!! So as the serotonin level increases over time, rather than an instant reaction like when you take a hit of LSD, this LSD reaction takes place over a period of time as the serotonin increases to a toxic level. So in this gradual process of building the serotonin levels it appears that YOU are the one going insane, rather than the drug producing the instant insanity you can get from LSD while it mimics the neurotransmitter, serotonin.
This site did not even mention that Sandoz initially introduced LSD as a way to CHEMICALLY INDUCE INSANITY so that scientists could learn HOW psychosis is created! The site gives a long list of “benefits” of LSD and then lists all that LSD supposedly treats again as the side effects of LSD! So just like antidepressants it causes what they are telling you the drug treats!!!! See why I always have said it sounds like Eli Lilly pulled out all their old marketing materials on LSD, which they patented the end of February, 1956, to use in marketing their new “slow fuse LSD” in the form of their antidepressants – Prozac and Cymbalta?!
Find the link to this website I am responding to below my comments and links to additional information and PLEASE remember in sharing this information to anyone taking any one of these new serotonergic drugs in the form of an SSRI or SNRI antidepressant drug or in an atypical antipsychotic drug that they NEED to know how to wean safely off these drugs or it could be disastrous! So share with them our website www.drugawareness.org so they can see how to get the help they need in doing this. It has been my experience that doctors wean patients WAY TOO FAST, as they once did with steroids causing those patients to go psychotic, becausethey do not understand the reasons why safe withdrawal must be so gradual.
MY COMMENT ON THE LSD CONNECTION TO ANTIDEPRESSANT
“Wow! How did you get hold of Eli Lilly’s old marketing material for LSD?!! That clearly is what you have posted here, right? But of course missing from your material would be that Eli Lilly patented the synthetic version of LSD in early 1956 at the request of the CIA. The CIA wanted massive amounts to use in their mind control projects during the Korean war. (Hmmm…wonder if North Korea’s current leader found one of the CIA’s old stashes of LSD which would certainly explain his behavior! Or perhaps he is just using one of their newer “slow fuse” versions which have a strong effect upon Orientals – explained below.)
LSD WAS ORIGINALLY MARKETED TO CHEMICALLY INDUCE PSYCHOSIS
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL LISTED LSD TOXICITY SYMPTOMS ARE IDENTICAL TO
SEROTONIN SYNDROME – A CONDITION WHERE THE SEROTONIN LEVELS BECOME ELEVATED TO POTENTIALLY FATAL LEVELS & ALSO A SIDE EFFECT OF ALL ANTIDEPRESSANTS & ATYPICAL ANTIPSYCHOTICS
Also missing is any information on how LSD was used before Lilly’s patent is missing from your post as well. You would think though that most people reading about LSD certainly would want to know that Sandoz Pharmaceutical who first offered LSD (in its natural state – ergot fungus) had it listed as a way to chemically induce insanity so that scientists could see how insanity is caused. Obviously their honest marketing of the drug was a total failure as no one stood in line to take the drug for that reason (Gee I wonder why?!! LOL!)
AFTER ELI LILLY MARKETED LSD IT BECAME A MIRACLE CURE FOR MENTAL ILLNESS
So Lilly with their marketing brilliance and amazing ability to buy medical research ghost written to perfection, (See this example where they bought/bribed the approval of their new “slow fuse” version of LSD, Prozac: (http://www.drugawareness.org/meet-dr-john-virapen-the-man-who-bought-prozacs-approval/
) at that point decided to come up with the material you have posted here to promote their latest “Wonder Drug” and had people lining up to take LSD voluntarily! (Apparently all those people lining up to take LSD had trouble comparing the risks to the benefits in order to see the massive discrepancies that showed the drug actually CAUSED everything they were marketing it to treat – or maybe they just never bothered to read the list like patients and their drug pushing/drugged up doctors of today do not read them.)
FAR MORE SPENT BY PHARMA ON MARKETING THAN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Is it any wonder Lilly, as most pharma companies, spend FAR more on marketing than they do on research and development?! $ell, $ell, $ell, is their bottom line! Along with what we MIGHT logically surmise as more sinister motives when considering their history and those with whom they associate.
But now that Lilly has their “slow fuse” version of LSD, their so called “antidepressants” Prozac and Cymbalta, flooding the market over the past three decades, along with all the other Prozac clones (like Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, etc.) society has been able to witness firsthand how well these drugs produce insanity in normal subjects: www.SSRIstories.NET
! So now Sandoz can use this for their far more honest marketing of LSD as a product to chemically induce insanity.
CIA PUBLICLY REQUESTS A NEW DRUG FROM PHARMA AFTER CONGRESS BANNED LSD – HERE COMES PROZAC!
(For additional information on the similarity between LSD and antidepressants you can find that in my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! with a portion of that information included in the post below including the CIA’s public request for another drug from Pharma after LSD was pulled from the market by Congress banning the drug.)
