Understanding Antidepressant-Induced Psychosis
And Everything Else They Cause
I have been going back through my book Prozac: Panacea OR Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! (Keep in mind that the only reason Prozac is the only antidepressant mentioned in the title is because it is the mother drug to all of the other SSRI and SNRI clones to follow it) to gather information for a court case and thought I would share something I ran across. It seems that so many who know enough to be against these drugs do not seem to know how simple it is to prove the deadly potential of antidepressants in producing psychotic breaks or so many other adverse effects. Hopefully just this one quote (although there is MUCH more) is enough to help everyone understand how similar in action these serotonergic drugs are to drugs we have seen in the past that are now illegal although once thought to be “safe and effective” also will help explain the psychosis producing effects.
“Tonge and Leonard (1969) compared phencyclidine [PCP], Ditran, mescaline and LSD and their effect upon 5 – HT (serotonin) and 5 – HIAA (serotonin turnover). All four drugs increased brain 5-HT (serotonin) and decreased 5-HIAA [serotonin turnover/metabolism] over a three hour period. As we pointed out before inhibition of 5HT (serotonin) is known to result in a decrease of 5HIAA (serotonin turnover) while it increases extraneuronal content of the 5HT (serotonin) (Buus, et al. 1975; Nabeshima, et al. 1983). Kenneth M. Johnson in 1978, thirty years after our official introduction to PCP, recommended that, “…Because of the suggestive nature of the foregoing studies with PCP and the proposed role of 5-HT [serotonin] in emotional and psychotic behavior, it is felt that a detailed biochemical study of the effects of PCP on serotonergic function is warranted…” (PCP PHENCYCLIDINE ABUSE: AN APPRAISAL , p. 46).
“This information on elevated serotonin levels and their connection to schizophrenia would imply that Prozac and the remaining SSRIs, along with any of the drugs which raise serotonin levels should all be classed as psychotomimetic drugs, over a period of use they are chemically inducing a psychosis thus mimicking schizophrenia. As early as 1986 Prozac’s potential to induce psychosis emerged when an FDA Safety Reviewer uncovered that Lilly had withheld information of psychotic episodes in 52 patients during Prozac’s clinical trials.

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: http://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.
