- Royal College of Psychiatrists: “Antidepressant Withdrawal Severe, Not Mild”
- Royal College of Psychiatrists: “Antidepressant Withdrawal Severe, effects of withdrawing from antidepressants were branded ‘mild’
- But the Royal College of Psychiatrists has now changed its position to ‘severe’
- This is yet another very serious aspect of antidepressants I have been screaming about at the top of my lungs & streaming across the top of our website www.drugawareness.org
warning to microtaper off these drugs for a QUARTER OF A CENTURY NOW….but lets make this point very clear….I do NOT make that statement to gloat. I make that statement to point out HOW VERY LONG this information has been available to both doctors who have been jeapordizing their patients lives & health, both mental & physical, by taking them off abruptly & also available to so many patients who so desperately needed it. All the while far too many doctors have dismissed patients who have tried to tell them this, while labeling those patients “delusional” or “hypocondriacs” for reporting this severe withdrawal to them which we have long referred to as a quick trip to hell! Sadly, how many have lost their lives & suffered immeasurably as a result during all that time!
MY MESSAGE TO DOCTORS HAS LONG BEEN: STOP ‘LISTENING TO PROZAC’ & ITS CLONES & LISTEN TO YOUR PATIENTS INSTEAD!!!!In order to avoid having to repeat myself over & over & over again in helping people learn the method we had learned through our own research & through trial & error over the years I put out my CD on safe withdrawal, “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!” That was back in June of 1999 when I was about to do a radio interview with Coast to Coast radio with 20 million listeners on the subject of the Columbine High School massacre. After all those people learned about the effects of these drugs in producing Columbine I did NOT want to repeat myself millions of times to those wanting to know how to come off these drugs!! So a CD that could repeat that for me seemed to be the smartest way to go.Here is the link to that CD/MP3 on safe withdrawal:And here is the link to the full article on the withdrawal study: https://www.dailymail.

“The attack happened just two days after Adams was released from prison, KPHO reports. Adams’ attorney Jacie Cotterell said he has a history of mental illness and should not have been released without proper medication.”Jails & prisons have been causing cases like this for decades now because no one is warning them about the extreme danger of just dropping people off these drugs as they leave prison. And they have also caused many suicides by not insuring the prisoners are getting the medications they have been taking as they enter jail or prison thinking they will be fine for several days without it!
(And PLEASE use his reaction to this case as a warning to NOT vote for Cory Booker! All we need is yet another politician who is this ignorant about these cases!)
Man slit teen’s throat because “rap music made him feel unsafe,” police say

Authorities have charged a white man recently released from prison with murder after he slit a teen’s throat inside a convenience store in Arizona last week. According to court documents obtained by CBS affiliate KPHO, Michael Adams, 27, allegedly did it because he felt “unsafe” listening to the child’s rap music.
Adams entered a Circle K store just outside Phoenix on Thursday when he walked up behind Elijah Al-Amin, 17, and allegedly stabbed him on the right side of his neck, police said. After Adams was arrested, he told officers that Elijah “did not do anything to threaten him” and heard him listening to rap music in the parking lot.
Michael Adams, 27, was charged with murder after allegedly cutting a teen’s throat.MARICOPA COUNTY JAILCourt documents said Adams yelled at detectives and stated that “rap music made him feel unsafe because in the past, he was attacked by people who listened to that music genre.” He also told investigators that he “needed to be proactive than reactive and protect himself and the community from the victim.”
Adams was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail with a count of first-degree premeditated murder, online records show. Adams’ bond was set at $1 million cash.
The attack happened just two days after Adams was released from prison, KPHO reports. Adams’ attorney Jacie Cotterell said he has a history of mental illness and should not have been released without proper medication.
However, the Arizona Department of Corrections said he wasn’t designated a seriously mentally ill and released on an absolute discharge on July 2.
Outcry erupted on social media following the death of Al-Amin. A hashtag #JusticeforElijah emerged on Twitter, where many users said he was the victim of a hate crime, including 2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker.
“Another one of our children has been murdered in a heinous and unprovoked way—the DOJ must investigate this hate crime immediately. RIP Elijah,” Booker wrote on Monday.
Areanna Ivery, who worked with Elijah at Taco Bell for a year, told KPHO and Al-Amin bonded over his passion for rap.
“He talked about rap music all the time. He loved rap artists,” she said. “He just always said that rap artists spoke to him, that [rap] just gave him a sense of purpose, that he went through a lot of the things that [the artists] went through.”

Merck just put up $48 Million to build a new facility & bring in 115 New jobs to Albany New York the very day before lawmakers they took away religious exemptions for vaccines! Coincidence? After testifying as a court witness against these companies & their drugs for three decades I can tell you there are no coincidences!
Listen to this leading Merck vaccine researcher admit to causing AIDS, Cancer, & the issues with SV40 with the polio vaccine. I was given the polio vaccine about age 6 & I developed terminal cancer in my early 20’s. Thank heavens for God given remedies that saved my life!
Cancer is the major killer of my generation. There were 98 Million of us exposed to cancer through the Polio vaccine! I will let you add up the toll both financially & in the senseless loss of lives to determine the full impact. And to those who are LDS allow me to paraphrase a statement which should be familiar to you as coming from Satan himself…”I will buy up EVERYONE & reign in blood & horror on this earth!”
“Among the discoveries he made at Merck, are vaccines for mumps, rubella, and measles…”
As you watch this video keep in mind this is the same man who developed today’s popular MMR vaccine! Makes me wonder what surprises this upcoming generation is in for with that one?!
Watch him admit to all of this & then laugh about doing it while never disclosing it to the public at the time because of the expected backlash …
“worlds leading vaccine expert Dr. Maurice Hilleman, Chief of the Merck Pharmaceutical Company’s vaccine division relay this problem he was having with imported monkeys. He best explains the origin of AIDS, but what you are about to hear was cut from any public disclosures.
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: and I think that vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th century.
Narrator: 50 years ago when Maurice Hilleman was a high school student in Miles City Montana, he hoped he might qualify as a management trainee for the local JC Penney’s store. Instead, he went on to pioneer more breakthroughs in vaccine research and development than anyone in the history of American medicine. Among the discoveries he made at Merck, are vaccines for mumps, rubella, and measles…
The New York Times ran an article recently on Dr. Maurice Hilleman, a top vaccine developer who worked for Merck. The article was entirely positive, calling Dr. Hilleman “A Forgotten Pioneer of Vaccines.” The article states:
To a remarkable extent, we owe our well-being, and in many cases our lives, to the work of one man and to events that happened 50 years ago this spring.
Dr. Mercola ran an article on Dr. Hilleman back in 2011, which portrayed a completely different story from what the mainstream media reports regarding Dr. Hilleman. He featured a censored video of Dr. Hilleman that has circulated on Youtube for years. That video has since disappeared from Youtube, but others exist broadcasting the same interview with Dr. Hilleman. We have copied one below, along with the transcript.
Dr. Hilleman was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program. He developed over three dozen vaccines, more than any other scientist in history. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. He received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. Hilleman was one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines. In the interview below he states: “vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th century.”
Dr. Mercola’s article reveals 60 different lab studies that linked the Salk Polio vaccine to cancer, which Helleman admits was the responsibility of Merck:
In 2002, the journal Lancet published
What was it contaminated with?
SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus. The puzzle began in 1994, when Dr. Michele Carbone, a Loyola University researcher, found the virus SV40, which had never before been detected in humans, in half of the human lung tumors he was studying. Since then, 60 different lab studies have confirmed the results, and SV40 has been found in a variety of human cancers, including lung-, brain-, bone-, and lymphatic cancer.
At first, no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population.
But in the censored interview with Dr. Maurice Hilleman, Hilleman admits Merck’s responsibility in unleashing this virus via their polio vaccine, as well as the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading the AIDS virus in the same manner.
Here is the interview, along with the transcript:
Dr. Len Horowitz: Listen now to the voice of the worlds leading vaccine expert Dr. Maurice Hilleman, Chief of the Merck Pharmaceutical Company’s vaccine division relay this problem he was having with imported monkeys. He best explains the origin of AIDS, but what you are about to hear was cut from any public disclosures.
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: and I think that vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th century.
Narrator: 50 years ago when Maurice Hilleman was a high school student in Miles City Montana, he hoped he might qualify as a management trainee for the local JC Penney’s store. Instead, he went on to pioneer more breakthroughs in vaccine research and development than anyone in the history of American medicine. Among the discoveries he made at Merck, are vaccines for mumps, rubella and measles…
Dr. Edward Shorter: Tell me how you found SV40 and the polio vaccine.
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: Well, that was at Merck. Yeah, I came to Merck. And uh, I was going to develop vaccines. And we had wild viruses in those days. You remember the wild monkey kidney viruses and so forth? And I finally after 6 months gave up and said that you cannot develop vaccines with these damn monkeys, we’re finished and if I can’t do something I’m going to quit, I’m not going to try it. So I went down to see Bill Mann at the zoo in Washington DC and I told Bill Mann, I said “look, I got a problem and I don’t know what the hell to do.” Bill Mann is a real bright guy. I said that these lousy monkeys are picking it up while being stored in the airports in transit, loading, off loading. He said, very simply, you go ahead and get your monkeys out of West Africa and get the African Green, bring them into Madrid unload them there, there is no other traffic there for animals, fly them into Philadelphia and pick them up. Or fly them into New York and pick them up, right off the airplane. So we brought African Greens in and I didn’t know we were importing the AIDS virus at the time. [emphasis added]
Miscellaneous background voices:…(laughter)… it was you who introduced the AIDS virus into the country. Now we know! (laughter) This is the real story! (laughter) What Merck won’t do to develop a vaccine! (laughter)
Dr Maurice Hilleman: So what he did, he brought in, I mean we brought in those monkeys, I only had those and this was the solution because those monkeys didn’t have the wild viruses but we…
Dr Edward Shorter: Wait, why didn’t the greens have the wild viruses since they came from Africa?
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …because they weren’t, they weren’t, they weren’t being infected in these group holding things with all the other 40 different viruses…
Dr. Edward Shorter: but they had the ones that they brought from the jungle though…
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …yeah, they had those, but those were relatively few what you do you have a gang housing you’re going to have an epidemic transmission of infection in a confined space. So anyway, the greens came in and now we have these and were taking our stocks to clean them up and god now I’m discovering new viruses. So, I said Judas Priest. Well I got an invitation from the Sister Kinney Foundation which was the opposing foundation when it was the live virus…
Dr. Edward Shorter: Ah, right…
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: Yeah, they had jumped on the Sabin’s band wagon and they had asked me to come down and give a talk at the Sister Kinney Foundation meeting and I saw it was an international meeting and god, what am I going to talk about? I know what I’m going to do, I’m going to talk about the detection of non detectable viruses as a topic.
Dr. Albert Sabin …there were those who didn’t want a live virus vaccine… (unintelligible) …concentrated all its efforts on getting more and more people to use the killed virus vaccine, while they were supporting me for research on the live viruses.
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: So now I got to have something (laughter), you know that going to attract attention. And gee, I thought that damn SV40, I mean that damn vaculating agent that we have, I’m just going to pick that particular one, that virus has got to be in vaccines, it’s got to be in the Sabin’s vaccines so I quick tested it (laughter) and sure enough it was in there.
Dr. Edward Shorter: I’ll be damned
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: … And so now…
Dr. Edward Shorter: …so you just took stocks of Sabin’s vaccines off the shelf here at Merck…
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …yeah, well it had been made, it was made at Merck…
Dr. Edward Shorter: You were making it for Sabin at this point?
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …Yeah, it was made before I came…
Dr. Edward Shorter: yeah, but at this point Sabin is still just doing massive field trials…
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …uh huh
Dr. Edward Shorter: okay,
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …in Russia and so forth. So I go down and I talked about the detection of non detectable viruses and told Albert, I said listen Albert you know you and I are good friends but I’m going to go down there and you’re going to get upset. I’m going to talk about the virus that it’s in your vaccine. You’re going to get rid of the virus, don’t worry about it, you’re going to get rid of it… but umm, so of course Albert was very upset…
Dr. Edward Shorter: What did he say?
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …well he said basically, that this is just another obfuscation that’s going to upset vaccines. I said well you know, you’re absolutely right, but we have a new era here we have a new era of the detection and the important thing is to get rid of these viruses.
Dr. Edward Shorter: Why would he call it an obfuscation if it was a virus that was contaminating the vaccine?
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …well there are 40 different viruses in these vaccines anyway that we were inactivating and uh,
Dr. Edward Shorter: but you weren’t inactivating his though…
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …no that’s right, but yellow fever vaccine had leukemia virus in it and you know this was in the days of very crude science. So anyway I went down and talked to him and said well, why are you concerned about it? Well I said “I’ll tell you what, I have a feeling in my bones that this virus is different, I don’t know why to tell you this but I …(unintelligible) …I just think this virus will have some long term effects.” And he said what? And I said “cancer”. (laughter) I said Albert, you probably think I’m nuts, but I just have that feeling. Well in the mean time we had taken this virus and put it into monkeys and into hamsters. So we had this meeting and that was sort of the topic of the day and the jokes that were going around was that “gee, we would win the Olympics because the Russians would all be loaded down with tumors.” (laughter) This was where the vaccine was being tested, this was where… so, uhh, and it really destroyed the meeting and it was sort of the topic. Well anyway…
Dr. Edward Shorter: Was this the physicians… (unintelligible) …meeting in New York?
Dr. Maurice Hilleman …well no, this was at Sister Kinney…
Dr. Edward Shorter: Sister Kinney, right…
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …and Del Becco (sp) got up and he foresaw problems with these kinds of agents.
Dr. Edward Shorter: Why didn’t this get out into the press?
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …well, I guess it did I don’t remember. We had no press release on it. Obviously you don’t go out, this is a scientific affair within the scientific community…
Voice of news reporter: …an historic victory over a dread disease is dramatically unfolded at the U of Michigan. Here scientists usher in a new medical age with the monumental reports that prove that the Salk vaccine against crippling polio to be a sensational success. It’s a day of triumph for 40 year old Dr. Jonas E Salk developer of the vaccine. He arrives here with Basil O’Connor the head of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis that financed the tests. Hundreds of reporters and scientists gathered from all over the nation gathered for the momentous announcement….
Dr. Albert Sabin: …it was too much of a show, it was too much Hollywood. There was too much exaggeration and the impression in 1957 that was, no in 1954 that was given was that the problem had been solved , polio had been conquered.
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …but, anyway we knew it was in our seed stock from making vaccines. That virus you see, is one in 10,000 particles is not an activated… (unintelligible) …it was good science at the time because that was what you did. You didn’t worry about these wild viruses.
Dr. Edward Shorter: So you discovered, it wasn’t being inactivated in the Salk vaccine?
Dr. Maurice Hilleman: …Right. So then the next thing you know is, 3, 4 weeks after that we found that there were tumors popping up on these hamsters.
Dr. Len Horowitz: Despite AIDS and Leukemia suddenly becoming pandemic from “wild viruses” Hilleman said, this was “good science” at that time.
The very large majority of transgenders are on antidepressants, as I remain convinced Bruce Jenner is as well. And because of that their rate of suicide is extremely high. As with most suicides they are wrongly being blamed on anything & everything but antidepressants which have “suicidal ideation” listed as an admitted side effect! But these drugs also cause “homicidal ideation” even though the only one I am aware of who has added it to their list if warnings in the package insert is Effexor. Although since they put that warning on page 42 you would think they could still be charged with failure to warn because anyone would expect such a serious side effect would be listed in the first few pages of that insert!
So why is it that in America medical professionals, the court system and the general public who take these drugs remain completely oblivious to this information first published three years ago supporting all I have been warning about these drugs for 30 years? Could it be our bought media or “fake media” as President Trump calls them or “Operation Mockingbird” as the CIA calls them? Just how responsible for the lack of this lifesaving information are the media?
The Hidden Harm of Antidepressants – Scientific American. Find source here
An in-depth analysis of clinical trials reveals widespread underreporting of negative side effects, including suicide attempts and aggressive behavior

Antidepressants are some of the most commonly prescribed medications out there. More than one out of 10 Americans over age 12—roughly 11 percent—take these drugs, according to a 2011 report by the National Center for Health Statistics. And yet, recent reports have revealed that important data about the safety of these drugs—especially their risks for children and adolescents—has been withheld from the medical community and the public.
In the latest and most comprehensive analysis, published last week in BMJ (the British Medical Journal),a group of researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Copenhagen showed that pharmaceutical companies were not presenting the full extent of serious harm in clinical study reports, which are detailed documents sent to regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) when applying for approval of a new drug. The researchers examined documents from 70 double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of two common types of antidepressants—selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI)—and found that the occurrence of suicidal thoughts and aggressive behavior doubled in children and adolescents who used these medications.
Riddled with conflicts
This paper comes on the heels of disturbing charges about conflicts of interest in reports on antidepressant trials. Last September a study published in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology revealed that a third of meta-analyses of antidepressant studies were written by pharma employees and that these were 22 times less likely than other meta-studies to include negative statements about the drug. That same month another research group reported that after reanalyzing the data from Study 329, a 2001 clinical trial of Paxil funded by GlaxoSmithKline, they uncovered exaggerated efficacy and undisclosed harm to adolescents.
Because of the selective reporting of negative outcomes in journal articles, the researchers in the most recent BMJ study turned to clinical trial reports, which include more detailed information about the trials. They discovered that some of most the useful information was in individual patient listings buried in the appendices. For example, they uncovered suicide attempts that were passed off as “emotional lability” or “worsening depression” in the report itself. This information, however, was only available for 32 out of the 70 trials. “We found that a lot of the appendices were often only available upon request to the authorities, and the authorities had never requested them,” says Tarang Sharma, a PhD student at Cochrane and lead author of the study. “I’m actually kind of scared about how bad the actual situation would be if we had the complete data.”
“[This study] confirms that the full degree of harm of antidepressants is not reported,” says Joanna Moncrieff, a psychiatrist and researcher at University College London who was not involved in the study. “They are not reported in the published literature, we know that—and it appears that they are not properly reported in clinical study reports that go to the regulators and form the basis of decisions about licensing.”
Opening the black box
Getting access to clinical trial reports is no easy feat. Peter Gøtzsche, a clinician researcher at Cochrane and a co-author of the recent study made the first attempt to obtain these files from the EMA for antiobesity pills in 2007. “The EMA flatly denied us these reports,” Gøtzsche says. “They talked about commercial confidentiality although there was absolutely nothing in these reports that was commercially confidential. We explained that all this secrecy actually cost human lives, but they weren’t interested in that at all.”
It was only after three years, multiple requests and complaints to the European Ombudsman, an individual elected by the European Parliament to investigate claims against European Union institutions, that the research team finally received the documents. Following this case the EMA declared that it would widen public access to clinical trial–related documents. According to Gøtzsche, although they were able obtain this breakthrough in Europe in 2010 this has yet to happen in the U.S. “What America really needs is an ombudsman,” he says.
Researchers need better access to data from clinical trials in order to conduct assessments unimpeded by industry influence, Gøtzsche says. “It’s deeply unethical when patients volunteer to benefit science and then we let drug companies decide that we cannot get access to the raw data. The testing of drugs should be a public enterprise.”
Time to reassess?
Because many prior studies found increased suicidal ideation with antidepressant use, in 2004 the FDA gave these drugs a black box warning—a label reserved for the most serious hazards—and the EMA issued similar alerts. There are no labels about risks for aggression, however. Although hints about hostile behavior existed in the past, including in published case studies, last week’s BMJ study was the first large-scale work to document an increase in aggressive behavior in children and adolescents. “This is obviously important in the debate about school shootings in the States and in other places where the perpetrators are frequently taking antidepressants,” Moncrieff says.
Taken together with other research that raises questions about the pros and cons of this class of drugs—including studies that suggest antidepressants are only marginally better than placebos—some experts say it is time to reevaluate. “My view is that we really don’t have good enough evidence that antidepressants are effective and we have increasing evidence that they can be harmful,” Moncrieff says. “So we need to go into reverse and stop this increasing trend of prescribing [them].”
