The Myths Promoted by Psychiatry and Pharmaceutical Companies about Anti-Depressants

According to a Recent CNN Article about Female Teen Depression
A professor of psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center and a co-author of a recent study. "The new study published in the Journal of Pediatrics highlights that most adolescents with depression do not receive treatment for their symptoms and underscores the need for increased attention to this condition."
What the report fails to disclose is that anti-depressants don’t work and are a complete failure. Another mental health professional Dr. David Healy indicates that psychiatry is gone astray. He indicates there are several myths about depression. One is that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance. This myth is often used in pharmaceutical advertising. The truth is psychiatry has no idea the interplay of serotonin and biochemical processes. He indicates there is no chemical imbalance to begin with. The body corrects itself if there are health issues. By using psychotropic drugs the psychiatrist, doctor and pharmaceutical firm creates the imbalance.
Another myth he discloses is that psychotropic drugs is like insulin for diabetes. This claim is used in advertising in radio, TV, and promoted by psych’s and MD’s. The truth is that a patient lacks serotonin. A diabetes patient lacks insulin so they need insulin injections to survive. Depressed patients have no lack of serotonin, which pharmaceutical drug pushers claim to promote.
Essentially the use of anti-depressants has no science behind it. If a pharma firm, psychiatrics and drug pushing MD gives a teen a psych drug they are doing so without any science to confirm their claims. They are lying on TV, Radio, and Internet and Print ads that a person lacks serotonin, and that it cures the person ailment.
Another major myth is that psych drugs keeps patients healthy. This is a huge lie. Studies show that the increased use of these useless drugs increases normally transient problems into chronic ones. The number of disabled mentally ill has exploded in Western Countries since the huge promotion of psychotic drugs. Psych’es also claim it is rare that depressed people on their antipsychotics become bi-polar. That is patently untrue. Bi-polar ‘diagnosis’ has increased tremendously in the 20 years since anti-depressants and psychotics were universally promoted as a cure drug.
Remember psychiatry is the father of lobotomies (using an ice pick to fix mentally ill). They still use strait-jackets and ECT (Electric Shock Treatments). If you are referred to a psychiatrist then remember who they are.

Zootopia's Movie Metaphor with Psychotropic Drugs

The 2016 film Zootopia grossed over a billion worldwide, and it maybe the best example for a young person about the effects of anti-depressants and psychotropic drugs. The cartoon movie is set in an Animal only world where carnivores and herbivores live together in harmony. Foxes don’t hunt rabbits and leopards don’t hunt gazelles. The plot of the film is that a number of carnivores are missing and are latter discovered to be injected with toxic flowers that have a severe psychotropic effect. The carnivores become predators again of other mammals after taking the psychotropic flower, or actually being injected with it.

This to us is an example of how current anti-depressants and psychotropic drugs work on young adults. The common side effects of psychotrops are: Loss of appetite, sleep problems, and mood swings. Other stimulant drugs commonly included in psychotropic drugs are amphetamine and dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine); atomoxetine (Strattera); dexmethylphenidate (Focalin); lisdexamfetamine (Vyvanse); and methylphenidate (Concerta, Ritalin). These drugs are also often prescribed for ADHD. Other SSRI side effects commonly prescribed as anti-depressants are chest pains, shortness of breath, trouble swallowing, swollen lips, hives, or other signs of a serious allergic reaction. Suicidal thoughts or feelings, or any signs of suicide, such as talking or writing about death, giving away belongings, or withdrawing from family and friends. Manic behavior, such as very high energy, sleeping less, being impulsive, or being grouchy or restless. These all combined or by themselves turn a kid upside down, where they wish to kill themselves or anyone else.
The end results shown monthly on your TV or news site is where a young adult takes a gun, or knife and kills his or her classmates at school or at a mall. In the Zootopia film the predator is shot with a toxic flower dart. In the world today the person is given a pill, which ultimately turns them into killers of others or suicidal. Psych drugs will turn your kid into a predator. We thank Disney for the true to life metaphor we call Psychotropia.
