Documentary Film Sternly Warns of Psychotropic Drug Dangers, Suicide Risks

MAKING A KILLING: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging

by Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR)
Youtube.com, Dec. 13, 2010

BLOGBACK: Although some medical conditions most certainly require treatment through the use of safe drugs, current evidence has shown the overprescription of psychotropic drugs by VA and DoD doctors, and the record rates of suicide, warrants a more vigorous critical review and evaluation by lawmakers. Within the VA and DoD, there are few alternatives provided — such as meditation, yoga, touch therapy, acupuncture and other ancient “natural” methods — to veterans and troops suffering neuropsychiatric injuries during military service. The message of this documentary is not insignificant to US military personnel, veterans and their families.

This video provides the facts about psychotropic drugs and the huge profits they create for the pharmaceutical industry.

These drugs are not safe and have not been on the market long enough to provide sufficient long-term studies regarding their effects. These drugs do cause addiction, however most “doctors” would call this dependence because you do not have to take an increasing dose over time. They are completely fine with you being addicted to the same amount of any given drug on a daily basis.

Over half of the people who commit suicide in the United States are prescribed to psychotropic drugs. (Ex: Paxil (Paroxetine), Zoloft (Sertraline), Prozac, Wellbutrin (Bupropion), Effexor, Seroquil, Ultram (Tramadol), etc.)

  1. It breaks my heart that our war heroes are being defamed with scientifically “lacking in validity” (Dr. Thomas Insel, head of the NIMH, 2013) mental disorders such as PTSD, and being made sick with psychotropic drugs. They should be, being thanked and glorified, instead. Thank you, war heroes, from me and my children. I am personally grateful and respectful for your generous sacrifices for my freedoms. So I am speaking in the hopes of protecting yours, as well.

    After eight years of personal research into the psycho / pharmaceutical industries’ behavior, I do agree with the information in this video, despite not being a Scientologist.

    And I highly recommend reading the scientific journalist, Robert Whitaker’s, books “Mad in America” and “Anatomy of an Epidemic.” These books also describe the psychiatric industries’ history and recent inappropriate behavior. They explain that the ADHD and antidepressant drugs CAUSE the bipolar symptoms, anxiety, etc. And his website, Mad in America, did post subsequent research (2011) indicating the antipsychotics are now shown to cause atrophy of the brain, exactly as seen in long run medicated schizophrenics. Thus, meaning the antipsychotics do indeed cause schizophrenia.

    My personal belief, based on eight years of research, is that the psychiatric industry spent the past 50 years writing a psychiatric “bible” of mental illnesses describing the mental illnesses CAUSED BY their drugs, and a medicalization of normal human distress and behavior, to lead as many as possible onto their toxic drugs as possible.

    But if you step back and look at the big picture, of course that’s what the psychiatric industry would do. And even the greed inspired pharmaceutical industry has stopped research into psychiatric drugs, due to lack of valid scientific leads.

    Drugs do not cure disgust at war, war is disgusting. I, too, was inappropriately miss-medicated for disgust at 9.11.2001. These greed inspired crimes against humanity need to end. And the psychotropic drugs CAUSE the psychiatric illnesses, but they do NOT cure warrented disgust at war.

    What it seems we are now dealing with is another “holocaust,” again caused by psychiatric eugenics beliefs. But this time due to greed of big Pharma and the main stream medical community supporting the fraudulent DSM belief system of the psychiatric industry. And the psychiatrists are now attacking the US veterans … plus millions of children. It’s almost unfathomable how grotesque their greed inspired and unethical crimes against humanity are now.

    I pray for all who dealt with the lack of science and ethics of the US psychiatric industry, and hope and pray the US armed forces understand these fraudulent “medical professionals” and their drugs are the enemies of this country, not those harmed by trusting in people who thought doctors took a Hypocratic oath to ” do no harm” then were harmed by them. Either because they were deluded, or the doctors themselves were deluded by misinformation.

  2. I was prescribed Ativan for a short period of time for anxiety related to some health problems. After taking the Ativan for about two months, I became very depressed. I had never experienced depression like this. It felt like I was in a deep, dark hole that I couldn’t get out of. I cried on a daily basis. The depression was so bad, it felt physically painful. My chest felt so heavy, as if I was full of sorrow. This happened when I tried to stop taking the Ativan on a daily basis, but even though I would take a half tab or a quarter tab to just get by, I would feel a little better, but the depression was still there. I started suspecting that it was the Ativan that was causing an imbalance in my brain, and if I were to wean myself off the drug, I might be ok. I did that gradually knowing that, if I tried to do it too quickly my depression would worsen. I started taking a quarter tab for about two weeks, then an eighth for two more weeks, then an eighth every other night. I was able to stop completely. The depression lifted gradually, and now I’m doing much better. I’ve included several positive drug free activities in my life now that make me happy. Meditation, acupuncture, exercise, and learning about different natural remedies to name a few. I no longer have the severe depression that I had before. Ativan can be a useful medication when taken occasionally, but it shouldn’t be relied on daily. If you’re taking it and you’re depressed slowly wean yourself off it, and replace it with activities that make you happy. You will feel better! And life will be good again!
    Sometimes we have to grieve because we are no longer the person we used to be, but I believe that we are here on this earth to learn and evolve. Every experience we have-good or bad, we have for a reason. If you are thinking of committing suicide, please ask for help. One more thing…I’ve visited the http://www.near-death.com website and read the many near death experiences. I believe there are important messages there for people who need to know that suicide is not the answer. Just click on Forum nde’s on the left side of the screen.

  3. Let us remember that the amount of money you spend on medical care does not necessarily equate to quality care — medical fraud like a hidden greedy parasite saps the lifeblood of our public health system. As we restrict preventative medical care to the poor and needy we are expanding the use of psychiatric drugs exponentially to include an ever increasing percentage of our population on these addictive lifelong mind-altering medications.

    • Thank you for bringing reason and prevention into the health equation. The psychiatric drugs only reduce the chances for recovery and the psyche can’t recover from a “disorder” that does not exist. Stress, anxiety and depression occur because of a natural response or reaction to the long tours of duty, war trauma, and extreme stress on all of the body, mind, emotions, spirit and social systems. Learning to slow down, designing a self care plan that includes intensive & extensive health services and learning to balance the whole being with health practices identified in our website have remarkable results. http://jerryvestinjuredwarrior.com
