Simple Truths About Psychiatry: Psychiatric Drugs Are More Dangerous Than You Ever Imagined
Dr. Peter Breggin, MD
Dr. Peter Breggin is another voice in the growing chorus of people warning us about what prescription drugs really do. He goes through the various categories of drugs. Stimulants cause brain shrinkage, increased suicide rates, cocaine abuse and criminal behavior. Sedatives like Ambien shorten life span. Zanax and Valium are very addictive. “Antipsychotic” drugs wreck the basal ganglia and also shorten life span. If you want to shorten your life span, you have many options.
Doctors continue to prescribe these drugs. How did this situation start, and why does it continue? As Dr. Breggin points out, doctors only know what the pharmaceutical industry tells them. He also warns that you need competent professional supervision to stop taking these drugs or the side effects could be worse than your original condition. These drugs are also a common denominator in the epidemic of behavior problems and waves of violence in schools. If everyone knew about this, things could be much better, but don’t wait for any big news flashes from pharmaceutical-controlled mainstream media. The thumb is UP.
