Psychiatrists Say Psych Meds 'Cause' Violence, Lanza Record Awaited


Psychiatrists Say Psych Meds Cause Violence, Lanza Record Awaited

Psychiatrists have come forward to assert that certain psychiatric medications, such as those known as SSRIs, are almost certainly the chemical cause of a large number of instances of random violence and suicide in which SSRIs have been present.

The research challenges the pharmaceutical industry's defense that the high correlation between random violence and the presence of these medications is due to the mental illness, not the drugs being prescribed for the illness. Other critics of the industry claim that drugs tend to be too aggressively marketed and over-prescribed.

The media has reported that the suspected shooter in the Sandy Hook multiple killings, Adam Lanza, was on some form of psychiatric medication, possibly related to a reported diagnosis of a form of autism. Authorities have yet to make a statement on what, if any, psychiatric medications Lanza was on, or had been on in the past. The SSRI with the brand name Prozac is sometimes prescribed for autism....

And some people would consider that UNETHICAL

to remove and replace restorations that aren't decayed and profit from it. Hal Huggins was shunned by the dental community for doing this exact thing.

Personally I don't see any justification for removing an amalgam restoration for no reason other than the mercury scare. Hundreds of millions of amalgam fillings have been placed with no measurable harm. Once a amalgam filling is in place it release mercury vapor at a slower rate than you would get from food. Some patients have had them in place for 70 years.

Sarcoplasm you are lecturing me, but you seem blind to the fact there is more than one way to look at it. In fact, I believe I am taking the ethical high road.

Where did you get the idea I was anti-drug?

I do consider the Human mind to be a water based electrochemical soup. and I also view it as a computer, with limited inputs.

fish learned to fly before man did.

why do YOU think we are so smart as to be messing with it?

Care to cite your science? You make a lot of sweeping

statements without a shred of evidence. The fact that doctors get paid bonuses to prescribe these things is evidence of a perverse industry in itself. For every commenter like yourself seeing pie in the sky and nothing wrong, I hear from 3 others who say SSRIs killed their empathy for other people and made them afraid they might eventually hurt someone, even someone they loved.

You are using the same logic which you called erroneous when you say there are millions of people on SSRIs with no ill effects. You are merely citing millions of correlations.

Sorry, thought I'd help him out. He has been shown that the package insert where the Pharmaceutical industry has admitted SSRIs cause violence, he just has a way of throwing strawman arguments around rather than face the scientific evidence. Here is the NIH article - about as "whitewashed" a source as you can ask for, and even they say "Close monitoring is especially important during the first four weeks of treatment. SSRI medications usually have few side effects in children and adolescents, but for unknown reasons, THEY MAY TRIGGER (emphasis added) agitation and abnormal behavior in certain individuals."

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

WTF? I am defending science against quackery and fear-mongering

When have I ever mentioned the NWO? You a projecting your strange worldview onto me.

You still don't even understand what I am telling you. If you think that you are defending science with your relentless attacks on mainstream medicine, you are delusional.

DEAD WRONG -docu. exposing the quackery of psychiatric drugging

Thanks for starting this thread Sue. We can't very well care about liberty if we care not for the millions of our fellow citizenry -particularly the future generation are in chains:

Another CCHR-Scientology propaganda video!


Everyone needs to question everything, EXCEPT SCIENTOLOGY AND ANTI-PSYCHIATRY.

Question and oppose psychiatry at all costs, but do NOT question any information regarding anti-psychiatry!

I think you have some good points

and we should be vigilant in determining fact from propoganda on all sides. I'm not anti-drug but I am more pro-natural for health. Maybe we should all look at what points we can agree on about SSRI's, and then we can have a good conversation.

Do you agree that SSRI's can in fact, cause harm to certain individuals?

You need proof that millions of people AREN'T spree killing?

Go out in public sometime. 165 million prescriptions were written in the United States in 2008. You probably encounter people on SSRIs everyday. Have you PERSONALLY SEEN a violent act, Sue?

Normally doctors don't get kickbacks from prescribing drugs. This is a myth you anti-psychiatry people are repeating over and over again. Where is your proof of these kickbacks? Oh wait, you don't need proof, right? As long as you make sweeping, insane attacks on mainstream medicine, no evidence is needed, IMMA RIGHT?

Here is one source countering the SSRI-suicide controversy.


Doctors were handing out prozac like candy in the mid 90's.

a doctor offered / recommended some for me back then. I declined.
I remember thinking it odd that he did so...
I wonder how many did not decline? and all this time I was thinking it might be the fluoride....
I am suddenly rather pissed that he even offered it to me. but that was 20 or so years ago... hell, I have not seen the doctor I have now in about 10.
doctors today are worse than refrigeration, heat and air guys. if you can find one you can trust. keep him!!!!

I hear ya!

You could go to a regular MD., ask for a prescription for acne and leave with one for Prozac, etc. etc. Your reaction to be angry in retrospect is totally understood.

a story was related to me of someone who did not

want to take the pills the psychiatrist was prescribing. Are you ready for this? The doc told her to just think of them as VITAMINS FOR THE BRAIN.

Absolutely true.

That's a whole *lot* of smoke for there not to be any fire,
as Big Pharma would have us believe... "no causality here
folks, everybody just move along, now.."

Excellent proof of the psych drugs and school violence pattern

Thank you for posting.

The plural of anecdote is not data.


True enough, but..

if lots and lots of bad outcomes are associated with
certain acts, a healthy response would be to try and figure
out what causality might exist.

At present though, the drug companies have substantial
influence over what research occurs and what findings
are reported. Their having more bought and paid for
politicians than anyone but maybe Israel doesn't hurt
their prospects, either.


I defy anyone to spend some time on that site and
not conclude that we have a horrific problem on our
hands with this stuff.
