Coast to Coast Radio Program with Dr. Peter Breggin as a Guest
At last Dr. Breggin is talking about this! I think that this program might have been more credible if they hadn’t juxtaposed it with something about extraterrestrials.
“In the first half of Wednesday’s show, Dr. Peter Breggin reported on problems associated with psychiatric drugs. A new study found that warnings about the risk of suicides in teenagers prescribed antidepressants may have backfired, as even though there’s been a drop in prescriptions of these medications, there’s been a rise in suicide attempts. The study also reported a rise in “psychotropic drug poisonings,” though they don’t give specifics about that, he stated. Suicidality isn’t the only problem with these drugs for teens– their sexual development can be forever impaired, and when they reach their 20s and 30s, they don’t have sexual feelings, he cited.
“When you give these drugs to children, 40-60% of them get behavioral abnormalities like mania, and loss of self control,” Breggin continued, adding that antidepressants do far more harm than good in children. Noting the difficulty of withdrawing from psychiatric drugs, he suggested it be done carefully under the monitoring of a therapist. Discussing his early studies of antidepressants and pharmaceutical companies like Eli Lilly, he found “systematic negligent behavior on the part of these drug companies,” and “since then, they’ve been paying billions of dollars…to the Attorney General of the United States for their various malfeasances.” The first big trial on Prozac was fixed so that the drug company would win, and the people who brought the suit were paid off, he detailed.”
