Chronic Or Permanent Stress Can Result In Mental Disorders

Antidepressant-induced Stress Can Produce

Mental Disorders and Brain Damage

A recent study in the Rubin science magazine has revealed that chronic or permanent stress’s effect on microglial cells — immune-competent cells responsible for repairing synaptic links, removing damaged synapses, and facilitating the growth of new brain neurons — can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia while another study out of the University of California demonstrates the same along with resulting in depression, suicide, ADHD, PTSD, Autism, brain damage and disrupts the balance and timing of communication in the brain.

When my book first went to press in 1994 I stressed this very issue pointing out Eli Lilly’s own studies demonstrating a doubling of cortisol, the marker for both stress and depression, with only one single dose of 30mg of Prozac administered! This fact went on the cover of my book as one of the most important things anyone should ever know about SSRI antidepressants. Then an entire chapter was included to discuss the damaging effects of cortisol, also referred to as the “death hormone.” The harmful effects of elevated cortisol have long been known to damage the brain as well as just about everything else in the body.

That should certainly help many of you suffering from the after effects of antidepressants to confirm what you are experiencing is the result of antidepressant use and to understand more about what you are dealing with as you work to repair that damage.

Additionally from this research we learn:

“In stress situations, the body readies itself for fight or flight, prepares itself for potential injuries, too,” lead researcher Dr. Astrid Friebe said in a statement. “What is certain is that microglial cells adapt to the new conditions, in a way. The more frequently they get triggered due to stress, the more they are inclined to remain in that mode. This is when microglial cells start to pose a danger to the brain.” ….

….A similar study conducted by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley also found that chronic stress can lead to changes in the brain that cause the development of a mental disorder. The research team focused on the reduction of neurons and generation of white matter that results from chronic stress. This increase of white matter, particularly in the hippocampus, disrupts the balance and timing of communication in the brain.”

Just out of curiosity one day (keep in mind this was before most of us realized we could just ask Google) I picked out a number for an endocrinologist in Salt Lake City, as if anyone should be aware of this important information an endocrinologist would be the one. I called to ask how long the human body could tolerate having the cortisol level doubled on a daily basis.

He gasped and said, “Oh you cannot do that to someone!”

I replied, “IF you could do that just how long could the human body tolerate that?”

He said, “A month, maybe two, three at the most. Why are you asking me this?”

I told him that is what one single 30mg dose of Prozac does.

His reply was, “Oh no! No! Prozac is a wonderful drug!”

He was completely unaware of this research done by the makers of the drug themselves because the study had been published in Italy, not the US, and therefore, the information was not required to be distributed to doctors in the United States. I gave him the reference to their study so that he could go look up for himself. This is one of the ways by which such mass ignorance of medications is generated….other than the fact that I have found far too many doctors do not bother to read research.

Are Antidepressants Causing a Worsening of Depression Symptoms?

Someone just shared this article with me and asked what my opinion of it was. The subject of the article is the possibility of antidepressants causing a worsening of depression and possible long term depression.

 

Now Antidepressant-Induced Chronic Depression Has a Name:

Tardive Dysphoria

robert whitaker

Robert Whitaker

June 30, 2011

Three recently published papers, along with a report by a Minnesota group on health outcomes in that state, provide new reason to mull over this question: Do antidepressants worsen the long-term course of depression? As I wrote in Anatomy of an Epidemic, I believe there is convincing evidence that the drugs do just that. These latest papers add to that evidence base.

Although this concern first surfaced in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when a handful of psychiatrists expressed concern that antidepressants were causing a “chronification” of the disorder, it was in 1994 that Italian psychiatrist Giovanni Fava, editor of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, urged the field to directly confront this possibility. He wrote: “Within the field of psychopharmacology, practitioners have been cautious, if not fearful, of opening a debate on whether the treatment is more damaging [than helpful] . . . I wonder if the time has come for debating and initiating research into the likelihood that psychotropic drugs actually worsen, at least in some cases, the progression of the illness which they are supposed to treat.”

******My Response******

Now before I give you what I shared with her, let me say I greatly admire Robert Whitaker for the attention he has been able to bring to the issue of the dangers of and damage caused by antidepressants through his work.

That being said the following is my response to her:

“Well I did not have to read very far before giving you this answer….

“Who was it who wrote the first book on SSRIs in 1991 called “The Prozac Pandora?” with the second edition in 1994 called “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?” and the third edition in 2001 titled “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare”?

“Yep! That was me! And I refer to Giovanni Fava’s work extensively in my book.

prozac-bookcart-image

“And what was the main focus of my book from the very beginning? (I do believe you have a copy of the 2001 edition.) The main theme of the book is to show that the hypothesis behind antidepressants is completely backwards and that the existing research shows serotonin (5HT) itself is NOT low in depression, anxiety, etc., but instead is elevated. What is low is one’s ability to metabolize serototonin (5HIAA).

“Yet how do these drugs work? They increase serotonin by inhibiting the metabolism of serotonin even further than the initial problem the patient had with being able to metabolize the serotonin. They are, therefore, making the depression, anxiety, etc. worse, not better.

Has my opinion changed in the least? NO!!!!!! It has only grown stronger with research slowly backing up absolutely everything I said all along.

“Now do I think we need further research as suggested in this article?

“Absolutely not! The research was done decades ago. And all anyone has to do is READ IT! That is why I spent four years gathering it all to put it into one volume for anyone to read. It amazes me that so few in medicine read research! It makes you wonder why they ever even bother doing it!

ANESTHESIA AS AN ANTIDEPRESSANT????

doctor

ANESTHESIA AS AN ANTIDEPRESSANT???

The latest research is coming to us out of the University of Utah. In the early 90’s I wrote to the Governor of Utah and told him that drug companies did not need laboratories because they had Utah! If there is anything they want to try out on willing guinea pigs Utah is where they go!

Anyway in case you have not noticed all the latest research on “treating” depression is turning to anesthesia since that is actually how antidepressants do work. This is nothing new. They are only becoming more and more open and obvious about what they are doing to people because they have seen they can get away with about anything. After all they have even been able to get us to buy into allowing them to shove someone else’s shit up our butts … oops excuse my French, the politically correct terminology for that process is a “fecal implant” which we learned just this week that the FDA no longer needs to regulate so closely as before. (Makes you wonder who it is giving those “donations” and what they are getting paid for them, doesn’t it? Ever wonder what meds those donors as well as blood donors might be on? You should!) That is not yet a treatment for depression, but for Crohn’s Disease.

Back to the research on anesthesia as treatment for depression (interesting since anesthesia almost always causes depression when administered) the following is my comment on this article. You may find the information shocking because so few are aware of the anesthetic effect of antidepressants:

“Can anesthesia replace shock therapy as depression treatment?” That question should have been answered LONG ago since that is the effect of antidepressant medications. Rather than being called “antidepressants” these drugs should be classed as dissociative anesthetics, little different than PCP or Ketamine, because that is their mode of action. The only difference is that it is a gradual anesthetic effect, unless the patient lacks the P450 enzyme, as do 7% to 10% of the population, and cannot metabolize the antidepressant. In those cases this dissociative anesthetic effect will be rapid.

Patients have reported since the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants that they cannot tell the difference between a dream and reality. Brain wave patterns of patients on antidepressants, which I submitted to the FDA Advisory Committee in 1991 and 2004 during safety hearings on antidepressants, demonstrate the patient is in a total anesthetic sleep state and dreaming while speaking as if awake and functioning to those gathering the brain wave data. And those coming off antidepressants report feeling as though they are coming out from under anesthesia or coming to the surface after deep sea diving. Many also report amnesia or only bits and pieces of memory during periods under the influence of antidepressants.

So this is really nothing new. And it should be no surprise that researchers are now looking at giving Ketamine (a clone of PCP) as a “treatment” for depressed patients. Patients have always reported their experience on SSRIs using the exact same descriptions as those on PCP even to the exact same wording! And since PCP is notorious for producing violence why do any of us wonder where all of the out of character extreme violence is coming from in our society over the past two decades?

So will this new treatment be any better? From their track record the answer would be: Don’t count on it! When you read enough research you learn that scientists love experimenting with the human brain. Solomon Snyder, who discovered the serotonin binding process, which made the SSRI and SNRI antidepressant possible, stated that “scientists love LSD because it taught them so much about the human brain”… demonstrating a total lack of concern about the havoc raised in so many lives over many years by LSD.”

For additional information on the anesthetic effects of antidepressants I would refer you to my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare where there is one entire chapter devoted to this subject and which you can find on our website at www.drugawareness.org and will also be coming out soon in ebook format.

FISH ON ANTIDEPRESSANTS … ANXIOUS, ANTI-SOCIAL, AGGRESSIVE, HOMICIDAL

FISH

FISH ON ANTIDEPRESSANTS…

ANXIOUS, ANTI-SOCIAL, AGGRESSIVE, HOMICIDAL

INITIAL WARNING 2000: In the year 2000 there were 2000 scientists worldwide who joined together with the warning of antidepressants and other pharmaceuticals in our water supply. We first put out our warning then – almost exactly 13 years ago: http://www.drugawareness.org/drug-awareness-org-newsletters/anti-depressants-get-into-water-system

ESCALATING CONCERNS: By reading our above newsletter from 5/2000 and comparing it to the following article you can see how the warnings have escalated as the problem has become more and more obvious with nothing being done to stop it. The birth rate dropping, lack of desire to mate, the changes in sexual orientation (documented in my book as early as 1994), the anxiety, anti-social and aggressive and homicidal tendencies we are faced with throughout society as a result of being exposed to these drugs in our water supply should be of great concern and should certainly have called for changes by now!

MY RESPONSE: This is my response to the following article:

“EXCELLENT ARTICLE! Clearly fish are suffering the same reactions I have seen in humans for the past two decades as I have written & lectured about these drugs, testified in criminal cases involving them and assisted those working to rebuild their health after using antidepressants.

“The anxiety and antisocial or Autistic-like behavior have long been reported by those on antidepressants as should be expected since all have long been known to involve elevated levels of serotonin. One study out of Australia (Esler, et al) noted an EIGHT times higher level of serotonin in those suffering anxiety.

“And I am very much interested in the fact that scientists continue to find what I have found in the way of gender confusion or even transgender changes in those exposed to these drugs. Someone needs to find a way to survey the gay population to see just how many were given antidepressants before “realizing” they had gay tendencies. The first person I witnessed these changes in was a doctor who was a happily married man when he started on Prozac but then began over his several year period of use to wonder if he was gay. This scenario has been repeated MANY times over the past two decades of gathering these cases. In one case a husband and wife started on antidepressants after the birth of a baby with birth defects. Soon both decided they were gay and divorced.

“I am very much concerned about what we are going to be seeing in the offspring of those mothers who have remained on these drugs during their pregnancies. If what I am seeing is the tip of the iceberg I have great concern for our future if we cannot learn how to counter these adverse effects!”

I encourage you to please read the full article below as the information is extensive and very very very important in understanding the full impact of these drugs upon our society and upon our world!

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants we always recommend that you also give reference to the 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 we have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

Fish on Prozac: Anxious, Anti-Social and Aggressive

Environmental Health News
By Brian Bienkowski

June 13, 2013

When fish swim in waters tainted with antidepressant drugs, they become anxious, anti-social and sometimes even homicidal.

New research has found that the pharmaceuticals, which are frequently showing up in U.S. streams, can alter genes responsible for building fish brains and controlling their behavior.

Antidepressants are the most commonly prescribed medications in the U.S.; about 250 million prescriptions are filled every year. And they also are the highest-documented drugs contaminating waterways, which has experts worried about fish. Traces of the drugs typically get into streams when people excrete them, then sewage treatment plants discharge the effluent.
Exposure to fluoxetine, known by the trade name Prozac, had a bizarre effect on male fathead minnows, according to new, unpublished research by scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Male minnows exposed to a small dose of the drug in laboratories ignored females. They spent more time under a tile, so their reproduction decreased and they took more time capturing prey, according to Rebecca Klaper, a professor of freshwater sciences who spoke about her findings at a Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry conference last fall. Klaper said the doses of Prozac added to the fishes’ water were “very low concentrations,” one part per billion, which is found in some wastewater discharged into streams.

When the dose was increased, but still at levels found in some wastewater, females produced fewer eggs and males became aggressive, killing females in some cases, Klaper said at the conference.

The drugs seem to cause these behavioral problems by scrambling how genes in the fish brains are expressed, or turned on and off. The minnows were exposed when they were a couple of months old and still developing.

There appeared to be architectural changes to the young minnows’ brains, Klaper said at the toxicology conference. Growth of the axons, which are long nerve fibers that transmit information to the body, was disrupted.

The new findings build on Klaper’s previous research, which tested minnows with the gene changes to see how well they avoided predators. They swam longer distances and made more directional changes, which suggests that the drugs induced anxiety.

The drugs used in the study were among the most common in sewage: Prozac, Effexor and Tegretol. The researchers tested each drug alone and in combination.
“At high doses we expect brain changes,” Klaper said. “But we saw the gene expression changes and then behavioral changes at doses that we consider environmentally relevant.”

However, there is too little evidence to know whether pharmaceuticals are having any impacts on fish populations in the wild, said Bryan Brooks, an environmental science professor at Baylor University who has extensively studied pharmaceuticals in streams and fish.’

Any changes in reproduction, eating and avoiding prey can have devastating impacts for fish populations, Klaper said.

The most vulnerable fish populations are those downstream of sewage treatment plants, where prescription drugs consistently show up in higher levels than in other waterways. It’s only within the past decade that technology has allowed plants to test for the chemicals in their wastewater and in waters downstream, though most still don’t, said Steve Carr, supervisor of the chemistry research group at the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts.

Fish downstream of wastewater treatment plants are more at risk of pharmaceutical exposure, experts say. Photo credit: Humboldt State University.
One of the antidepressants tested in the fish—Tegretol—comes into the treatment plants and goes out at near constant levels, said Eric Nelson, a senior chemist with the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts.

That means the county’s treatment technology does not seem to have any effect on the drug. It comes in and leaves in a very tight range, about 150 to 400 parts per trillion, Nelson said.

Nelson said the two other drugs tested on the fish—Prozac and Effexor—are discharged in effluent at even lower levels: between about 20 and 30 parts per trillion. In comparison, the levels that altered behavior of the lab fish were 50 times higher.

When monitoring an Iowa and a Colorado stream, the U.S. Geological Survey found most drugs at levels similar to Los Angeles County’s. However, these low levels could still find their way into fish brains, according to their 2010 study.

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists found traces of antidepressants in Iowa’s Fourmile Creek. Photo credit: USGS Researchers found elevated levels of pharmaceuticals in the stream water two to six miles from the sewage treatment plants. But the chemicals at the highest levels in the water were not the ones most prevalent in the fish brains.

“The fish downstream of the wastewater treatment had elevated concentrations of two antidepressants … Zoloft and Prozac,” said Edward Furlong, a research chemist at the U.S. Geological Survey based in Boulder, CO. “And these were relatively low in water compared to others.”

Even if the levels released into streams seem low, they are constant, which is problematic, Brooks said.

“The drugs may not be classically persistent like PCBs [Polychlorinated biphenyl],” Brooks said. “But they’re pseudo-persistent. The [continuous] exposure of organisms in a stream is equivalent to a chemical that is persistent.”
Some drugs bioaccumulate, or build up, in rainbow trout, according to Brooks’ research. Also, rainbow trout exposed to sewage effluent have pharmaceuticals in their blood at levels as high as those that affect the brains of people, according to research in Sweden.

Brooks said the likelihood of bioaccumulation for pharmaceuticals is high. “People have to take these drugs for weeks before they start having effects. They slowly bioaccumulate in your system,” which suggests bioaccumulation potential in fish, too, said Brooks.

Changes to the brain can affect all kinds of things in fish, Klaper said. And since humans have a similar brain gene structure, the findings raise questions about whether traces of these drugs in drinking water might harm human health.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers pharmaceuticals an “emerging concern,” and has concluded that the chemicals may pose risks to wildlife and humans. There are currently no federal regulations of the compounds in waste or drinking water. However, 12 pharmaceuticals are currently on the EPA’s Contaminant Candidate List, which are chemicals that may require regulation under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Studies have consistently found prescription drugs in drinking water at parts-per-trillion levels. U.S. Geological Survey scientists sampled 74 waterways used for drinking water in 25 states in 2008 and found 53 had one or more of the three dozen pharmaceuticals they were testing for in their water. Forty percent of the pharmaceuticals were found at one or more of the sites.

Fifty-four active pharmaceutical ingredients and 10 metabolites have been detected in treated U.S. drinking water, according to a 2010 EPA review.
Studies of children exposed in the womb to antidepressants taken by their mothers show effects on their motor development and a higher risk of some birth defects.

But health officials say the levels found in some drinking water are too low to cause harm.

According to a 2012 World Health Organization report, the “trace quantities of pharmaceuticals in drinking water are very unlikely to pose risks to human health.” The report said that the amount found in drinking water is usually 1,000 times lower than doses expected to have an effect on a person.
But Klaper said that in light of the gene changes in fish brains, officials may need to rethink what is considered safe.

“Fish do not metabolize drugs like we do,” Klaper said. “Even if environmental doses aren’t thought to be much for a human, fish could still have significant accumulation, and, it appears, changes in their brain’s gene expression.”

PLACEBO PERFORMS AS WELL AS ANTIDEPRESSANT IN TREATING DEPRESSION

NIH study

 PLACEBO PERFORMS AS WELL AS ANTIDEPRESSANTS

THIS INFORMATION FIRST CAME TO LIGHT 5 YEARS AGO BUT FEW SEEM TO HAVE BEEN MADE AWARE, SO IN CASE YOU MISSED IT THIS INFORMATION DEFINITELY BARES REPEATING AND WE NEED YOU TO SHARE IT SO THAT OTHERS BECOME AWARE. WHAT IS LEFT OUT OF THE ARTICLE BELOW ON THIS NEW STUDY BY THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH IS THAT UNLIKE AN ANTIDEPRESSANTS, A PLACEBO COSTS MUCH LESS, LACKS WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME, AND HAS FEWER SIDE EFFECTS OR AFTER EFFECTS!!!

Study: Placebo performs as well as antidepressant drugs in treating depression

by: Jonathan Benson,

(NaturalNews) The more that researchers truly study the effects of antidepressant drugs on depression patients, the more it becomes painfully obvious that these mind-altering medications are utterly useless. A new study conducted by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has revealed that antidepressant drugs work no better than talk therapy, placebo pills, or basically anything else, at relieving depression.

Funded in part by the drug industry, the new study follows the same pattern as several other recent studies that, even though they were not intended to do so, actually expose antidepressant drugs as a scam.

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!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!
