Big Pharma wants you! Psychotropic and other drug problems


SOTT | Feb 12, 2015 | Catherine J. FromPovich

Are you or your children on psychotropic drugs?

If so, you may be interested in knowing what independent researchers are finding regarding ADHD drugs, Antidepressant drugs, Antipsychotic drugs, and Anti-Anxiety drugs. CCHR International—The Mental Health Watchdog online, publishes an extensive listing of those drugs risks and/or possible side effects here.

ADHD drugs:
Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, Metadate, Vyvanse, Provigil. [1]

Antidepressant drugs:
Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Luvox, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Effexor, Lexapro, Elavil, Remeron,Strattera and Sarafem. [1]

Antipsychotic drugs:
Abilify, Clozaril, Geodon, Invega, Risperdal, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Fanapt. [1]

Anti-Anxiety drugs:
Xanax, Valium, Halcion, Klonopin, Ambien, Ativan. [1]

Blogger Raven Clabough has written an excellent article titled, Research: Antipsychotic Meds Cause Hopelessness, Zombie-Like State that I think my readers ought to study, as Raven has done her "homework" very well, so I defer to her article.

One of the issues Raven points out is:
According to the American Psychiatric Association, five percent of American children have ADHD, but studies reveal more than 11 percent of American children are diagnosed with the condition. [CJF emphasis added]
Pharmaceutical drugs/business/markets have become behemoth institutions promoting money-making industries that, apparently, are too big to tackle or handle by medical boards, state licensing boards, and the medical professions, e.g., the American Medical Association.

Bluntly, we could very well do without all of them. Why? Well, if "too big" means no transparency and improper oversight, with self-regulation especially in research science, then Americans and global healthcare consumers need to re-think the propaganda they are exposed to by the media and all health agencies. Pharmaceutical ads, like tobacco ads, should be banned.

Frankly—and in my opinion, we definitely have a legal drug culture in the USA, legally sanctioned by the CDC/FDA and state health agencies. Most children are on one or two medications and dozens of vaccines; while all senior citizens can be counted on to take at least between 2 and 5 prescription drugs, plus vaccines. For just one disease—cancer—there are 771 new medicines and vaccines in development. [2] How many diseases are there? Here's a listing of Potential New Vaccines, which I won't even try to count, as I don't have the time to scroll through all the information.

So, how many new Rx and vaccine drugs do you think are in developmental pipelines? Pretty soon everyone will be required to get a vaccine a day, at the rate they are going. Fast-tracking to get drugs into markets is something the FDA now is trying to streamline. It would seem that the FDA responds to Big Pharma in this manner: Pharma says "Jump!" and FDA asks, "How high?"
