ANTIDEPRESSANT CONNECTION TO LSD & PCP – ELI LILLY PATENTED LSD 2/28/1956

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 especially if you are anxious or depressed!!! So as the serotonin level increases over time instead of an instant reaction like you are on LSD this LSD effect takes place over a period of time as the serotonin increases. So in this gradual process it appears that YOU are the one going insane, rather than the drug producing the instant insanity you get from LSD as it mimics this neurotransmitter known as serotonin.
This site did not even mention that Sandoz initially introduced LSD as a way to CHEMICALLY INDUCE INSANITY so that science could learn how psychosis is created! They have a long list of “benefits” and then list all that it supposedly helps treat as side effects to 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 one of these drugs 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, not understanding the reasons why safe withdrawal must be so gradual.

MY COMMENT ON THE LSD CONNECTION TO ANTIDEPRESSANTS

“Wow! How did you get hold of Eli Lilly’s old marketing material for LSD?!! That clearly is what this is, right? As they patented the synthetic version of LSD for the CIA to be able to have massive amounts to use in their mind control projects in early 1956.
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 here 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 OF THESE SYMPTOMS OF LSD TOXICITY ARE IDENTICAL TO
SEROTONIN SYNDROME WHERE THE SEROTONIN LEVELS BECOME ELEVATED
TO DANGEROUS LEVELS – A SIDE EFFECT OF ALL ANTIDEPRESSANTS…
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.)

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & ALZHEIMER’S: Glen Campbell’s Final Album “Adios”

How very sad and tragic that these medical disasters continue to destroy the lives of so many celebrities, as well as many more in the general society, and NO ONE seems to know that medications have done this to any of them! Glen Campbell is sadly only one example of so many more.
FIRST THE ARIZONA DUI
Years ago when Glen was arrested in Phoenix for drunk driving they let everyone know he was on the antidepressant Lexapro (You can find that in our database of thousands of cases at www.SSRIstories.NET). Most important to consider in his arrest is that all of these serotonergic antidepressants – SSRIs and SNRIs – produce overwhelming craving for alcohol – even in those who have never touched alcohol before. And for those who had alcohol problems previously, these antidepressants so often given as “treatment” in rehab, have been shown in medical studies to increase drinking by 45%!
Did anyone explain that to Glen Campbell back then? Of course not! That would cut into their profits. I am sure they did as most doctors were doing – increased his dose or just switch to a different brand of the same kind of drug.
See our Facebook group “Antidepressant-Induced Cravings for Alcohol” for more info on the alcohol cravings:
So in thinking the antidepressants were helping him he continued to use them as his various mental disorders worsened and changed from depression, to major depression, etc. He could have easily developed a Bipolar Disorder,  as so many do who take antidepressants since antidepressants induce Bipolar so rapidly, but if he did I missed that one while I was attempting to keep up with all the other tragedies caused by these drugs.
Now for years we have heard that Glen Campbell is suffering from Alzheimer’s. But what he and so few others remain completely unaware of is that these drugs which are designed to increase serotonin produce all the symptoms of Alzheimer’s while they slowly shut down every body system. The drugs affect memory sp strongly that Amnesia is a common side effect!
Alzheimer’s disease has long been known to be a condition of elevated serotonin levels. The gummy gooey glossy substance they know builds up in the brain is the same gummy gooey glossy substance they found built up on the heart valves of those who took the serotonergic diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux.
These diet pill heart valve issues wound up being one of the very largest patient damage suits in the history of the US due to that gummy gooey glossy gunk that built up on the heart valves preventing the valves from shutting properly.
And what was the cause of that gummy gooey glossy gunk? Wwll according to the Mayo Clinic study by Dr. Heidi Connolly it was elevated serotonin – exactly the action of the these diet pills which increase serotonin levels from two directions while antidepressants do so from one direction.
So does that risk remain a concern with antidepressants as well? Certainly it should although it should take longer to produce this adverse effect than the diet pills due to the antidepressants increasing serotonin via one direction, serotonin reuptake, rather than two directions as the diet pills did. 
 

But what about the brain?

While the drug maker got away with the massive brain damage … the drugs were actually pulled for causing brain damage, not heart damage. Most were left to believe the drugs were pulled due to the heart valve damage brought to light by Heidi Connolly’s research but that was clear back in June, months before the drugs were pulled. What was new was the research of Dr. Una McCann at NIH on the resulting brain damage from these serotonergic diet pills. Only two weeks before the drugs were pulled she published a study done for NIH indicating some of the worst brain damage I have ever seen. The catch was that when the FDA had issued a temporary approval for Redux the year before they were concerned there may be brain damage from these serotonergic diet drugs so they insisted that Wyeth do research to learn if that was indeed the case with Redux. But Wyeth had done NO research at all on brain damage associated with their drug by the time Una McCann’s research came out. This is the real reason why the drugs were pulled by the manufacturer.

 

The brain damage was clearly associated with the elevated levels of serotonin in my opinion and this is why antidepressants designed to increase serotonin can produce that same brain damage which I have no doubt is what has happened to Glen Campbell over the years.

 

ROBERT REDFORD’S FAMILY TOO?!

Is it just a coincidence that two of the states with the highest use of antidepressants, Florida and Utah, hold the two highest rates of Alzheimer’s?!!! Read this link to see how this same reaction affected Robert Redford’s Utah family very early on and could have ended the same way as Glen Campbell’s has…

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & MEMORY LOSS: Utah No. 2 in nation for Alzheimer’s

Please visit our Facebook group on that side effect of these drugs: “Antidepressant-Induced Alzheimer’s, Amnesia and Memory Loss” :

Glen Campbell IS NOT not dying of Alzheimer’s!

He is dying of antidepressant poisoning!

And if anyone knows how to reach him they could let him know that he does not need to die of Antidepressant-induced Alzheimer’s, but that does not mean it will not be a long road back with a long and gradual weaning process and then rebuilding from all the damage.

Go here to listen to him sing “Adios”…..

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Pre-Med Student Stabs Fellow Students, One Dead, 3 Injured

Kendrex White, 21 year old pre-med student charged with murder for stabbing death at the University of Texas, Austin
Yet another drugged up future medical professional! Cannot count how many cases like this I have investigated over the past three decades! Who knows how many the world will have to witness before they finally wake up to this medication induced nightmare! You can see all of the details on this case in the link to the news story at the bottom of this post. You will learn he was arrested before for a DUI (and hopefully you know enough about antidepressants to know they cause cravings for alcohol and you can find all that documentation here on our site or in mor detail in my book on the drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!). When he was arrested then he said he had taken two pills of Zoloft. So what is he on now? Obviously he is experiencing the side effect of “homicidal ideation” which I would refer you to the post below where I have another patient who explains the reality of what homicidal ideation was for him after only two Zoloft – the same thing this fellow said he took.
Nurses have been telling me for years that 75% of doctors and nurses are on these drugs. And I hear repeatedly from doctors whose cases I have worked that the drugging started in medical school and continues for years into their careers. Those who peddle illegal drugs on street corners are in similar positions with those selling the drugs hooked on them also. Sadly there is apparently little difference rather than the one is a “respected professional” drug pusher and the other the guy on the street corner. Is it any wonder that NPR reported several years ago that 60% of cases of violence are happening in medical establishments?
Take a look at my post from a few weeks ago to see what just two pills of Zoloft can do and ask what this guy is on now…still Zoloft or just another brand of the same antidepressant drugs so similar to PCP?

“Homicidal Ideation” Described by Patient Who Suffered

This Antidepressant-Induced Side Effect

“Only two days on Zoloft and I wanted death bad – I wanted death like I wanted a new Ferrari…

but I wanted it not just for me, but for everyone!!!”

“I am a veteran of 15 years. I have seen the disasters from prescription medications especially the ones we were issued to treat PTSD and other mental illnesses. A couple of years ago, I agreed to take Zoloft as suggested by my doctor for depression. I had denied it for years.

“Within 2 days I waas truly suicidal. I wanted death bad. It wasn’t like the normal suicidal thoughts where I felt so depressed I would rather be dead, it was more like I wanted death like I wanted a new Ferrari. But not just for me, I wanted it for everyone! I wanted to get my friends together and thought let’s all die together. I have been confused by how this drug can make you feel this way. I certainly felt why so many commit suicide on these drugs and why it is a listed side effect! I tried to OD, but I sucked at it fortunately. I never touched another pill again.

Message of Great Wisdom From a Nine Year Old Boy On Earth Day Weekend

This young man, Daniel Bissonnette, along with his entire generation, is sadly going to soon inherit the earth we leave to them – your future children, your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren as a legacy of our time – a world full of prescription drugs and illegal drugs every direction they turn! He is speaking not only for them, but for us all.

Please listen to him! If all would listen we would all be far more healthy and most of us would have absolutely no need to ever see a doctor again! I listened to his message 45 years ago while yet a young woman dying of cancer and I not only overcame cancer without them or their “treatments,” I have been “doctor free” for 45 years! Life has been so much more peaceful and pain free!

With many of you in this group knowing all too well the damage and utter devastation that can come from making a simple visit to your local physician, I think you will find this young man’s advice not only uplifting but far beyond his years!!!! I guarantee that as you listen you will be doing as I did…asking myself over and over again, “Is this really a nine year old boy?!!!!”

Two School Shootings in the News on Columbine’s 18th Anniversary

Today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, marks the 18th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and marks the day after Barry Loukitis, in one of the first school shootings in this country, was once again given 189 years for killing a teacher and two classmates in Moses Lake, WA while no mention of these drugs and the role they played in that case has ever been mentioned in his defense! And while the real guilty parties in these school shootings continue to live in plush luxury with no repercussions whatsoever to this day!

The 12 students listed below and one teacher, William “Dave” Sanders, 47, were killed during the attack on the morning of April 20, 1999. And Eric Harris and Dylan Kleebold lost their lives in either a double suicide or a murder/suicide after the attack. Today we remember all the lives that were lost that day as well as those were severely injured and those whose lives were changed forever when Eric and Dylan reacted to their antidepressants:

Cassie Bernall, 17
Steven Curnow, 14
Corey DePooter, 17
Kelly Fleming, 16
Matthew Kechter, 16
Daniel Mauser, 15
Daniel Rohrbough, 15
Rachel Scott, 17
Isaiah Shoels, 18
John Tomlin, 16
Lauren Townsend, 18
Kyle Velasquez, 16

The day this happened I was on the phone with Ruben Ortega, Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, discussing with him some local tragedies to help him to understand the impact of these drugs upon the community he served and the public as a whole. The Salt Lake Family History Library shooting had recently happened with an elderly Russian man killing two before being shot. That elderly Russian man had an experience very similar to the German Wings pilot who two years ago took a plane with 150 to their deaths as he flew it into a mountain side in the Alps. This elderly Russian man noticed that he was losing his eyesight as a result of his antidepressant so he just stopped taking it with NO IDEA what that can cause! (If you see the REM Sleep Disorder listed in the Evidence section on School Shootings you will see the reaction he had that morning on his daily walk past the Family History Library as he opened fire killing one of my dear friends, Don Thomas, whom I had warned over and over again about the danger he was in there as the Family History Library security guard.) As Chief Ortega learned more and more about how these drugs work and how they can produce psychosis and violence and are so very similar in action to a slow fuse LSD or PCP he mentioned that was the case in the recent KSL shooting as well. The woman who came into that building shooting and killing a woman who worked there and her unborn child was also on one of these drugs. He then asked me, “Do you think what is going on right now in that school shooting in Littleton, CO could be caused by these drugs as well?” I replied that I did not generally see a case where two people go off the deep end on these drugs at the same time, but if they commit suicide too, you can bet it is one of these cases.” I was to later learn that about the same time I was making that statement to Chief Ortega is when Eric and Dylan lost their lives to the suicidal ideation we now have warnings are doubled for those under the age of 25 who take these drugs.

Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine

Please watch Mark Taylor’s Fight For Columbine to see how this tragedy has never gone away for Mark and has only gotten worse for him after he filed suit against the antidepressant maker of Luvox . Luvox is the antidepressant Eric Harris was taking when he shot Mark. And before anyone starts in on we don’t have any evidence of Dylan being on anything you need to know  that a girlfriend of Dylan’s came to Mark Taylor’s mother and then spoke with me about trying to help Dylan come off his Zoloft and Paxil (the same drug found guilty in the suicide of one of the nations’ leading attorneys.

GLAXO ORDERED TO PAY OUT ANOTHER MULTIMILLION DOLLAR VERDICT IN ATTORNEY’S SUICIDE

  • Definitely great news to be getting on the 18th anniversary of Columbine!!!

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid this drug company is!!!! If they were not made foolish enough in the Tobin vs Glaxo case by their own expert testifying under oath that according to his decades of research on serotonin that the two pills of their deadly antidepressant Paxil taken by a mild mannered elderly grandfather Donald Schell should have been expected to cause him to shoot his wife, visiting daughter and infant granddaughter and himself….Yet they were stupid enough to take the case of a suicide by a prominent attorney to court instead of settling the case with a gag order in place to keep this from the public as they have done for decades?!!

They must all be on these antidepressant drugs shown in 1993 research to turn brain cells into corkscrew shapes!!!!! There clearly are not a lot of smarts in that company!

Or maybe they think they have produced enough corkscrew shaped brain cells in the general public with these drugs that no one will notice this verdict….

Generic Paxil Garners Guilty Verdict For GSK

Whatever this is great news for victims because apparently this attorney took the generic version of Paxil, Paroxetine, which has been able to avoid wrongful death suits because it is a generic form of a drug that has been ruled “safe and effective” by the FDA. It did not work this time! Glaxo who put out the original Paxil and Brisdelle (Paxil with a name change given for Menopause) has now been found liable for this suicide!! I love it! Karma has found them and they have reaped what they sowed for putting these deadly drugs on the market.

GSK Hit With $3M Verdict For Reed Smith Atty’s Suicide
By Jessica Corso

Law360, Chicago (April 20, 2017, 4:20 PM EDT) — An Illinois federal jury on Thursday found GlaxoSmithKline liable for the death of Reed Smith LLP partner Stewart Dolin and ordered the pharmaceutical giant to pay $3 million to the attorney’s widow, reaching the conclusion that a generic version of GSK’s Paxil caused Dolin to take his own life.

A nine-person jury agreed with Wendy Dolin that her husband had committed suicide in 2010 under the influence of generic paroxetine, an antidepressant sold as brand-named Paxil. (AP) Following five weeks of trial testimony, the nine-person jury agreed…

Attorney Stu Dolan’s suicide was horrific. It was yet another suicide by train which in my research I have RARELY found any of these extremely violent suicides which did not include the use of an antidepressant. Read here about this extremely high profile and very successful attorney to know that a $3Million verdict did not even begin to compensate for this man’s life!!!

Antipsychotics Tied to Respiratory Failure in At-Risk Patients

Association Between Antipsychotic Agents and Risk of Acute Respiratory Failure in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Megan Brooks

January 12, 2017

Antipsychotics have been linked to respiratory failure in a dose-dependent manner among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), results of a large observational study show.

“Multiple cases about acute respiratory distress or acute respiratory failure [ARF] from the use of antipsychotics have been reported during the past decades. Nevertheless, no population-based studies have been conducted to examine this potential drug safety issue,” study investigator Meng-Ting Wang, PhD, of the National Defense Medical Center in Taipei, Taiwan, told Medscape Medical News.

“Clinicians should exercise caution when prescribing antipsychotics to patients with COPD and avoid high doses if possible,” the investigators write.

The study was published online January 4 in JAMA Psychiatry.

Dose-Dependent Relationship 

The researchers analyzed healthcare claims records in the Taiwan National Health Insurance Database and antipsychotic medication history for 5032 patients with COPD who developed incident and idiopathic ARF (excluding cardiogenic, traumatic, and septic causes).

Using a case-crossover study design, they compared antipsychotic use during the 2 weeks before the ARF event (case period) and an earlier control period 2 to 3 months before the ARF event.

A total of 590 (11.7%) patients with ARF filled at least one antipsychotic prescription during the case period, compared with 443 (8.8%) during the control period. This corresponds to a 1.66-fold (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.34 – 2.05; P < .001) adjusted increased risk for ARF, regardless of antipsychotic class and route of administration.

The risk for ARF with antipsychotic use was dose-dependent, increasing from a 1.52-fold risk for a low defined daily dose (DDD) of 0.25 or less to a 3.74-fold risk for a high DDD of 1 or more.

“Overall, this is the first population-based observational study that reports a dose-dependent acute effect of antipsychotic use on risk of ARF,” said Dr Wang.

The findings, he added, have important implications for the management of COPD patients.

“First, we urge healthcare professionals to be vigilant about the development of ARF in COPD patients receiving antipsychotic treatment, especially during the initial phase of treatment,” he said.

“Second, antipsychotic use in COPD patients needs to be justified, given we noticed a high proportion of off-label use in our population. Third, according to our dose analysis, high daily dose of antipsychotics with more than 1 DDD should be avoided, and the risk should not be overlooked even in patients at a dose as low as a quarter of 1 DDD,” Dr Wang added.

“Fourth, this novel finding of respiratory adverse events from antipsychotics should be considered when weighing benefits against risks of using antipsychotics in COPD patients, but patients are not suggested to discontinue antipsychotics without consulting their physicians. In addition, we advise COPD patients on antipsychotics not to neglect symptoms of breathing difficulty or respiratory abnormalities and should seek medical help as soon as possible,” he added.

Commenting on the findings for Medscape Medical News, Dr Janna Gordon-Elliott, psychiatrist at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York–Presbyterian Hospital in New York City, said the article is “notable because it highlights a risk with antipsychotics that I don’t think is high up on our radar. In reviewing the literature after reviewing this paper, I am struck by how little this risk is talked about,” said Dr Gordon-Elliott, who was not involved in the study.

“This correlational study doesn’t necessarily put the nail in the coffin and can’t prove causation, although they did a really nice job of controlling for a lot of factors, and with this large population sample, they do show that this is more than just a few case reports,” she added.

“What the paper doesn’t tell us is why these COPD patients were on antipsychotics, and that’s probably just beyond the scope of the paper. But antipsychotics are being used off label in a lot of patients, and this paper should really make us think twice about that in patients with lung disease,” Dr Gordon-Elliott said.

The study had no commercial funding. The authors have disclosed no relevant financial relationships.

JAMA Psychiatry. Published online January 4, 2017. Abstract

http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/article-abstract/2595040

WITHOUT ANTIDEPRESSANTS WOULD WE HAVE WORLD BIPOLAR DAY?

Today is supposedly World Bipolar Day. I propose that minus antidepressants we would never have seen a World Bipolar Day because NOTHING has caused more cases of Bipolar than antidepressants. Initially when the SSRI antidepressants were introduced many psychiatrists refused to prescribe Prozac or drugs like it due to their strong potential of inducing a manic psychosis. Prozac or drugs which work on the same principle as Prozac — Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil, Celexa etc., are known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and are designed to inhibit the metabolism of serotonin, thereby increasing levels of this neurotransmitter in the brain and throughout the body. Yet what so few are aware of is that the psychedelic drugs (PCP also known as Angel Dust and LSD) actually mimic serotonin in order to produce hallucinations. So as the level of serotonin increases in the system no one should be surprised to learn that they begin to suffer hallucinations and psychosis.

For example in the June 1999 edition of Clinical Psychiatry News, Dr. Malcolm Bowers, a psychiatrist at Yale had found that physicians are not paying enough attention to patient factors that could make treatment with SSRIs dangerous. He found that, “SSRI induced psychosis has accounted for eight percent of all hospital psychiatric admissions over a 14-month period…What is surprising is that this particular group of side effects is really underplayed.” That comes out to about a quarter of a million people in the late 90’s per year were being chemically induced into a Bipolar psychosis. He then said that the large majority were being undetected as antidepressant-induced psychosis and were mistakingly continued on the offending medications, meaning the drugs were being allowed to continue to exacerbate the Bipolar condition. I recall a case I worked on in the mid 90’s where a patient sued Eli Lilly for causing his Bipolar which cost him his entire inheritance. Dr. Fred Goodwin, so well known for his large text written on Bipolar Disorder testified in his behalf that this was Prozac-induced and he won his case against them.

But Dr. Bowers study was done close to two decades ago. But with the extremely widespread use of these drugs since that time it seems everyone now knows someone who has a diagnosis of Bipolar when before the introduction of the first SSRI, Prozac most of us had never heard of someone who was Bipolar or Manic-Depressive as it was once called.

Here I am discussing that and its impact upon society in the 2006 FDA hearing on antidepressants when the Black Box Warnings were increased to the age group of anyone under the age of 25:

The full transcript of this testimony before the FDA Advisory Committee in December of 2006 can be found here: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

Bipolar is Actually a Sleep/Seizure Disorder

I also have a DVD on Bipolar explaining the evidence behind it being a Sleep/Seizure Disorder and detailing how antidepressants cause this Bipolar reaction to antidepressants. The cost is $4.95 and can be watched online. It also explains how there are natural ways to reverse this Bipolar reaction. That can be found here: https://store.drugawareness.org/product/bipolar-disorder-streaming/

Facebook Group – Antidepressant-Induced Bipolar and Schizophrenia

We also have a Facebook group addressing this issue and acting as a support to those going through this reaction plus helping others to understand how easily this can happen especially during abrupt changes in dose of an antidepressant. That group can be found at this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1605446559734283/?ref=br_rs
