ANTIDEPRESSANTS – LATEST FROM THE EXPERTS

Bookmark and Share

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: Taper off very, very, very slowly!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dropping “cold turkey” off any medication, most especially mind altering medications, can often be MORE DANGEROUS than staying on the drugs. With antidepressants the FDA has now warned that any abrupt change in dose, whether increasing or decreasing the dose, can produce suicide, hostility, or psychosis – generally a manic psychosis when you then get your diagnosis for Bipolar Disorder. GRADUAL withdrawal is the key to safely getting off these drugs – taking months to years depending upon the length of use of any antidepressants! (See withdrawal information below)

“Antidepressant Drugs Do Not Work For Depression And Increase The Risk Of Suicide … have gone carefully through a vast body of research, which includes unpublished … never seen because we got the study reports from the European Medicines Agency. They tell a completely different story to the one that is told in medical journals. Antidepressant drugs do not work for depression and increase the risk of suicide…When it comes to our health, taking one person’s word as doctrine might not be the best idea, whether they are a doctor or not…it’s remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs.  Source: http://www.deadlymedicines.dk/author/peter/

Medical Journal, Lancet 

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.(source)” 

Editor of Lancet: Medical Research is Unreliable at Best or Completely Fraudulent

Harvard Professor of Medicine & Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (source)(source)

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”

Author: ”Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare – The Complete Truth of the Full Impact of Antidepressants Upon Us & Our World” & Withdrawal CD “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!”

She has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: store.drugawareness.org And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan. You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
