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!

THE SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SHOOTING – FATHER WHO LOST DAUGHTER BLESSES SHOOTER’S FAMILY AS WELL

EmilieParker

EMILIE PARKER ONE OF THE YOUNG VICTIMS OF THE CONNECTICUT SCHOOL SHOOTING

Thank you to Lisa Williams (our past New Jersey Director for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness) for alerting me to this article. This video recording is of Emilie’s father who lost his daughter in the Connecticut shooting talking about his little girl & how blessed he was to be her father &  praying for the families of all the victims, including the family of the shooter.

VIDEO OF SCHOOL SHOOTER TELLING HIS STORY TO BE RELEASED ASAP

I will be posting a video of a school shooter who survived his antidepressant-induced nightmare telling what happened to him in a school shooting incident so that you can see clearly why this incredibly compassionate young father is right on the mark in offering condolences for the shooter’s family as well.

OUR PROMISE TO LITTLE EMILIE & HER CLASSMATES

Rest in peace little Emilie & know that your mission here upon this earth is NOT yet over because there are those of us who understand why your life was cut so short & who will continue to fight this battle for truth about the real cause behind the loss of your life & all your classmates. May your innocent blood cry out along with the innocent blood of so many more victims of these deadly drugs as a witness against those who thought their corporate profits were worth more than your life, those of your classmates, & the thousands upon thousands of other lives that have been cut short by these drugs!!

(On a sickeningly ironic side note this piece also aired on a TV station in Salt Lake City who could have put an end to these shootings over a decade ago when a woman on these meds ran into their news studio shooting & killed a pregnant newscaster & her unborn child. They never reported the truth with that shooting & I doubt they will with this one either.)

PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS CUT A PATIENT’S LIFE SHORT BY 15 – 25 YEARS!!!

2012-07[1]

An EXCELLENT article discussing the potential of extreme toxic effects of psychiatric medications upon people’s health! Although it has LONG been known that psychiatric drugs shorten life, few ever discuss it. Rarely have I seen someone, other than myself, speak this boldly about how very toxic these drugs are & the exteme gravity of the potential harm from these drugs! This is an article you will want to read for sure!

It is also an article that I believe every patient taking a psychiatric drug needs to take to their prescribing doctor. It is time for responsibility in medicine!

Short & to the point, but packed full of critical information that all patients & their doctors should have!! I will include for you here just a couple of excerpts from the article to give you an idea of what I mean:

“People who have been labeled seriously mentally ill are dying 15 to 25 years earlier than normal [1], and it is clear that this is largely because of the effects of the drugs they are given.”

“Before proceeding, it is essential to state that I believe that suffering people have the right to try anything to ease their pain, as long as two criteria are met – and they almost never are. Those criteria are:
(1)The person recommending a treatment must learn about and disclose to the patient everything that is known about the potential benefits and potential kinds of harm that that treatment carries.
(2)The person recommending a treatment must learn about and inform the patient about the whole array of things that have been helpful to those who have suffered in similar ways (not just the traditional, medicalized approaches but all approaches).”

ANTIDEPRES​SANTS & the Two Mass Shootings in the US This Week – shooting in Colorado

Your name

Today we had yet another mass shooting in Colorado with far too many similarities to Columbine. What is even more shocking is to know this is the second mass shooting in the US this week! The other in Alabama did not seem to get as much press, perhaps because most of the 18 people he shot were in a tavern, but it too was much too similar to this same scenario as well & I would not be the least bit surprised to learn antidepressants were involved in it as well! You can read about that case here:

But today there is far too much talk of banning guns again (instead of banning these drugs that cause people to pull the trigger or reach for a knife or sissors, or a hammer or use their teeth, or whatever else they happen to use as a weapon), so I am sending the link to the video clip by Michael Moore discussing the real cause of Columbine – antidepressants. Of course I believe we will find the drugs in this case as well. See the video below & I suggest highly that you all share it with your local media to educate as many as possible so as to prevent one of these shootings in your own backyard!

Michael Moore obtained a copy of Ann Blake-Tracy’s book, “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare” at the premier of “Bowling for Columbine” in Denver, CO.

OTHER SCHOOL SHOOTINGS go to. http://www.ssristories.drugawareness.org
In Aurora, CO early this morning 71 people were shot in a movie theater & so far 12 of those have lost their lives in this random shooting.
http://videocenter.denverpost.com/services/player/bcpid1744023874001?bckey=AQ~~,AAAAADe65VU~,G496cZ36A_XWUzxcrC917B6Q48syIH3g&bctid=1745669589001
The shooter had no expression on his face, said nothing while shooting, did not care who he shot or who died, was wearing all black, was described as shy, intelligent & somewhat of a loner – too many of the same things we have seen in so many of these shootings. Add to that he was a PhD in neuroscience & possibly psychology. (The largest single group we have facing serious charges on antidepressants are medical professionals – probably because they believe the serotonin lies they hear so often about the drugs.)
I know that most watch for the mention of someone being treated for “depression” in these cases, but these drugs are given for SO MANY reasons! What has caught my eye is that he is described as “shy” & “very intelligent” which is something we also very often see in these cases. Just over a decade ago I recall helping a family in Israel. Their teen son was being treated with Paxil for being shy. They ordered a copy of my book, read it & were of course very concerned, BUT their son appeared to be doing well on the drug so they thought if they watched him very closely maybe he would be okay.
Tragically what most people do not understand is that when someone is given an antidepressant for shyness it appears to “help” because of the signs they are going manic! When someone goes manic they become boisterous, outgoing, talkative … basically a party animal. So clearly that brings someone “out of their shell” so to speak. But this is really a sign they are about to go off the deep end on these drugs!
In this case the family did not think to watch their son throughout the night as well as the day. He got up in the middle of the night & blew up an Army jeep & in his delusional state began ranting about how he wanted to be a suicide bomber. Out of his shell? You bet! No longer shy? After the embarrassment of realizing what he had done he became even more withdrawn. And he also faced serious criminal charges.
Is this another case like this one? I believe we will learn that it is from all we have heard about this young man. It took Rosie & It 6 months of watching & waiting & searching for the answer in the Atlanta Day Trader Shooting when Mark Barton killed his family & then went on a shooting spree. Finally the police admitted they found Prozac pills scattered all over the van Mark Barton shot himself in. These answers do not come easy! There is a huge profit to be protected by hiding the truth about these drugs!
Please when you share the Michael Moore statement with your local media also share with them our database of cases that Rosie Meysenberg & I worked on gathering for many years to stand as witness to the adverse impact of these drugs upon our society: www.ssristories.drugawareness.org It is shocking to see case after case documented as clearly as Rosie & her husband did for us in this database. It should wake anyone up to the serotonin nightmare in which we find ourselves!

Drug Awareness Big News – What We Have Been Putting Together For You!!!!

WE ARE EXCITED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE STARTING A DRUG AWARENESS MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM TO BETTER HELP TO SHARE INFORMATION & EDUCATE AS MANY AS POSSIBLE ABOUT THESE DRUGS…WHAT HAS GONE ON IN MEDICINE & IN COURTROOMS, & IN THE MEDIA SINCE THEY WERE FIRST INTRODUCED. WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER AN ENTIRE LIBRARY OF AUDIO & VIDEO TO TAKE YOU THROUGH THE HISTORY OF THE PAST 20+ YEARS SINCE THESE DRUGS WERE INTRODUCED. (YOU MAY SKIP BELOW TO OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHAT WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER FOR YOU OR SEE OUR HISTORY DETAILED BELOW.)

HISTORY/BACKGROUND: Most of you know that since 1990 I have been researching serotonin & antidepressants & gathering information from the media & court cases on these drugs. You also know that I began gathering cases involving these drugs at the same time. At a local meeting in Salt Lake City of those concerned about Prozac people begged me to become the local director for the Prozac Survivor’s Support Group. I graciously declined explaining that I did not see how I could spend the time researching & writing my book about antidepressants & do that as well. My world turned upside down the following day when the 20 year old son of a local attorney jumped to his death outside my downtown office window. His dying words to the responding officers included the fact that he was on Prozac. That was the day I agreed to become the Utah director for the Prozac Survivor’s Support Group. In September of that year I testified before the first FDA hearing on Prozac & now am the only one who has attended every FDA hearing on SSRI antidepressants ever held.

When Rosie Meysenberg & I met in 1996 we joined forces in gathering & documenting these cases. We began with gathering a group of antidepressant cases of women who were committing very violent murders & murder/suicides – something that stood out in society as a rarity. Rosie & I continued this effort gathering cases of murder/suicide, parents killing children, children killing parents, school shootings, workplace violence, road rage, air rage, False Accusations of Sexual Abuse, soldiers committing suicide, murder & murder/suicides, female school teachers seducing male students, etc. A decade later Rosie & her husband Gene paid me a visit to gather and consolidate as many cases as possible gathered over the years to began putting together a searchable database of these cases to post on the internet. That database is now located at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org & has been the basis for two major medical research studies so far. Sadly Rosie left us a week ago to join those whose battle we have been fighting for two decades before getting a chance to see in action what she knew we were working on.

Then in 1997 Mark Miller, who had recently lost his 13 year old only son, Matt, to a Zoloft-induced suicide, after only one week on the drug, joined Rosie & I to put up our website at www.drugawareness.org . He did a marvelously impressive job taking Drug Awareness quickly to the top of the charts on the net as so many families searched for answers as to what had happened in their families! This was the humble beginnings of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. Over the years many have joined us in this battle for truth about antidepressants & their impact upon our society.

Also over the years everyone seemed to expect me to gather the media coverage in the newspapers, magazines & television. It seemed that I quickly became the antidepressant library for the planet documenting the peddling of these drugs to our world. That is what we are opening up now to make available to everyone. Since 1991 I have been doing radio & television shows & newspaper & magazine articles/interviews on the SSRI antidepressants. I have lost track of just how many, but they are all safely tucked away to document this antidepressant age & stand as a witness of all that has happened as a result. We are pulling them all out, dusting off the cobwebs & making them available to our members. More & more will be added each & every month.

DRUG AWARENESS MEMORIAL: We also want you to be aware of the memorial area we made available a few years ago. This is for you to place videos or just pictures of your loved one lost to these deadly antidepressant drugs. If you have not yet put together a video collage of your loved one we do have professionals who will do so for you at a discount so that you too may post your own video. I encourage you to go to the memorial area of our website to see how to go about this. Please allow people to see how much our world has lost with the loss of your loved one – their talents & contributions they would have offered to our world that we will now never see because of these drugs. You understand & feel that loss more than anyone because you were blessed to know them so well. Make the world see what you saw in them so that they can understand too what all was lost when we lost them! I refuse to allow them to remain numbers! I want to world to see them for who they were.  Memorial

FROM Ann Blake-Tracy: WELCOME BACK TO DRUGAWARENESS!!!!!!

Intern’tl Coalition for Drug Awareness Newsletter

Newsletter Posted by: “Ann Blake-Tracy”

Wed Feb 29, 2012 4:44 pm (PST)

It has been a very long time – far too long – since we have sent out newsletters from our Drugawareness site. I am starting them back up again & want to update you on all that is happening. Over the past two weeks I have had three experiences that have made me realize that no matter how overwhelmed I have been over the past couple of years, I MUST find the energy and means by which I can step up the pace of educating the world about antidepressants because I know what is happening in my life is happening in everyone else’s lives as well because antidepressants are EVERYWHERE!!

Besides the school shooting that just happened in Ohio with every earmark of yet another antidepressant induced school shooting, last night a friend called to let me know that her cousin was the teen boy who walked in front of a train in my old neighborhood last week. The grandmother of this boy has now lost two of her grandchildren in a violent suicide induced by antidepressants!!! The first was a teen girl who shot herself about a decade ago. And her son was sent to prison because of false accusations of abuse made by someone on these meds. THAT IS ONE FAMILY!!!!!

Then last week a good friend I have known for 20 years & who has helped set me up for lectures and radio shows to spread the word about antidepressants called to let me know that his 32 year old niece on antidepressants had just committed suicide leaving her husband and three children behind.

Then two weeks ago a friend I have had for 30 years called to let me know that her daughter had given her son-in-law ONE pill of Zoloft after which he made several serious suicide attempts & was now in a psych ward.

Now if I am being hit with this many tragedies this close to me in my life when I know what I know about these drugs, how bad is has it become in everyone else’s lives????!!!!!

So we are gearing up the website to offer more & more info.

We welcome all of you back to our Drugawareness family!!!
You can find us on Facebook under the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. And you can find me on Facebook at Ann Blake Tracy where we have been sharing MUCH new information. Please come and friend us there!

Our Texas Director, Rosie Meysenburg, & I have worked very hard for many years to gather as many antidepressant-induced cases of violence, suicide & other adverse reactions. And Rosie has put all of these plus many more she has gathered from the internet into an incredible database which you can search in so many different ways! You can search by patient name, by state, by what happened (school shooting, teacher seducing students, suicides, child cases, etc.) The website for that is located at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org

We are also gathering your stories on the site. There will be a spot for you to enter yours as well.

We are preparing a membership site as well with several ways of learning more and more about these drugs & how to educate others to prevent these tragedies.

I also have new DVDs available on several subjects:

1: On the subject of Bipolar induced by the use of antidepressants

2: Antidepressants & Mind Control

3. False Memory Syndrome caused by antidepressants

4. The Effects of Antidepressants Upon Spirituality

5. The REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) (We now know that 86% diagnosed with RBD are taking antidepressants!!!)

I also just learned Leslie Demeniuk’s antidepressant-induced nightmare is going to be on the Bio Channel Friday evening at 8:00 PM Eastern Time. http://www.biography.com/tv/weekly-schedule It is a program called Women Behind Bars. Leslie shot her twin 4 year old boys while in a psychosis produced from going from Zoloft to Paxil. Her fiance, Anthony Ortiz, was one of our Drugawareness group who came to Houston from Florida for the press conference we had on the courthouse steps during Andrea Yate’s second case. Leslie’s case is found on our SSRIstories database of cases athttp://ssristories.drugawareness.org/archive/show.php?item=497

So that you have some background as you watch this program: Leslie was suffering the hypoglycemic reaction that comes from the use of antidepressants coupled with the stronger impact upon blood sugar brought on by the shock to the body of abrupt changes in dose of an antidepressant. This reaction brings on overwhelming cravings for either alcohol or sweets or both. She was therefore drunk also at the time of the shooting. This alcohol craving was the first reaction to Prozac that caught my attention & caused me to begin researching the SSRI antidepressants. I was shocked to see those who had never touched alcohol in their lives become alcoholic almost overnight on these antidepressants!

Of course the cases never end. Just last week a pharmacist in Tampa, FL drowned her baby while on antidepressants. We have just had another school shooting which I am sure involved the drugs & not far from there a young father shot & killed his wife & three children. In Utah last night I learned a friend’s teen cousin walked in front of a train in my old neighborhood to commit suicide after several months on antidepressants. Amazing that as hard as you try & as much evidence as there is when there is so much $$$$$ being made the truth just does not make it out – unless we do it ourselves to save those we love!!!

School Shooting Is Another Opening to Talk About Guns

After working as an expert in school shootings for the past two decades I have to disagree with the idea that school shootings are a gun problem or a bully problem. The world should have been able to see that after Josh Powell set his home on fire with him & his two children inside. There are many ways to kill if you are determined to do so.

There are prescription drugs on the market that produce both homicidal & suicidal ideation – which means the drugs produce ruminating thoughts of killing others or themselves coupled with ruminating thoughts of various methods of killing. Those medications are marketed as antidepressants.

The following is a link to a statement by Michael Moore after doing to movie Bowling for Columbine where they focused on the guns. You will see he has changed his mind about the guns & now knows it was the antidepressants that caused Columbine:

The shootings in a high school cafeteria in Charden, Ohio, give parents yet another opportunity to talk with our children and neighbors about gun violence.
