Making a Killing: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging

Psychotropic drugs. It’s the story of big money-drugs that fuel a $330 billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure.

The cost in human terms is even greater-these drugs now kill an estimated 42,000 people every year.

And the death count keeps rising. Containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims and the survivors themselves, this riveting documentary rips the mask off psychotropic drugging and exposes a brutal but well-entrenched money-making machine.

 

Before these drugs were introduced in the market, people who had these conditions would not have been given any drugs at all.

So it is the branding of a disease and it is the branding of a drug for a treatment of a disease that did not exist before the industry made the disease.

Original Post

You know I am soooooooo glad I followed my first mind and didn't let my psychiatrist give me anti-depression drugs when my son was murdered. I mean he gave the samples in his office to try but I never took them,  I didn't lose my mind, I lost my son.  So I didn't see the connection of why drugs for depression was gonna help me.  My significant other and I went round and round about this cuz I was soooooooooo angry and my temper was out of control but I refused to take those drugs.  

 

I think my doctor gave me Zoloft to try.  I never did.  I put those packages in the back seat of my car until the sun faded them so bad I had to throw them away.  Each visit I was given a different type of medication to take, and each time I threw them in the backseat.  This time underneath the car mat so no one could see.  I wasn't gonna take that mess.

 

I remember a colleague of mine went to the doctor.  And I told her azz not to take the medicine, you just want to get off for a few months-her son had committed suicide.  But oh no, she talked about my doctor like a dog and TOOK the medicine!  I said girl are you crazy?  Anyway it did have her cuckoo for a few weeks.  And she had to slowly withdraw from them.  And that's another thing,.,,you can't just stop taking them all at once, you have to ease off of them or your body will either have a seizure or some other severe complication.

 

 As I always said TRUST your instincts.  Cuz it's all about the money for these doctors.  They care less about therapy and recovery.  But I did have a good doctor and he suggested intensive therapy and it worked.  As why I talk talk talk and am not walking around like a zombie today or dead as a result of committing suicide as what these studies are saying happens when you take these drugs long term.  All I can say is Hal. La. lu yer.  And whewwwwwwwwww!  That was too close.  But! 

At this point it is virtually no more than a 'racket', but before this prescription drug epidemic got this far out of control [or maybe the reason it was allowed to] is because people don't understand that a Pharmacist knows more about medication(s) than a doctor does in many (if not most) cases; and that doctors are usually getting their information about the drugs from pharmaceutical company drug reps since pharmaceutical companies have been churning out new meds faster than many doctors have been able to keep up. 

 

You mention Zoloft, I'm sure there is a reason that you don't hear anything about Zoloft these days. With all the non-stop commercials running every five minutes on tv advertising damn near every prescription medication, anti-depressants and OTCs on the planet, you never see one for Zoloft.  My guess is that it was probably doing as much harm as it was good, and doctors are quietly stopping prescribing it.  

 

However, there are some people out there that really need anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medications or other drugs for mental health issues, but as you have alluded, there are far too many doctors just whipping out that prescription pad, prescribing these medications to people who really do not need them.  I think you chose right to not take the medication, because if you really needed to be on antidepressants, you would be needing the medication now; since you don't, then, evidently you never needed them in the first place [as you said].  

 

They have blurred the lines of exactly who really needs psychotropic drugs and who doesn't and people are being caught in the murky waters its created.  This is just one area where far too many lines been blurred in our society today, and that is one of the main reasons there is so much wrong with our society today.   

 You don't hear about Zoloft because they took it off the market a few years ago cuz folks started committing suicide!    They even recalled Paxil-I wouldn't take that either.  The recall was because it was doing something to babies whose nursing mother was prescribed it for post tramatic depression after delivery.  They redid it [made it less strong] and it is suppose to be better but I still wouldn't take it.   

 

As for Zoloft?  Remember the commercial where the woman is followed by a sad looking ball?  Which indicates her depression?  Well...what they DON'T tell you is many times when you THINK you are depressed....sometimes it's a medical condition that is mimicking depression and so doctors were prescribing Zoloft without realizing it had a fatal side affect i.e. suicidal feelings that didn't occur in some patients using it for depression.  But doctors were to quick to whip out their pads without giving the patient a thorough diagnotic assessment testing to determine if in fact serotonin levels were low enough to mandate taking the medication.  It just wasn't enough study on the medication in the first place.  

 

Plus when I began to feel a little better.  Each medication they tried to give me?  I did my own research on it.  But that was back in the day so I couldn't find as much information as I wanted but enough to know that those anti-depression medications were NOT for me.  This convinced me later as a potential child psychologist [one day soon] to use talk therapy for my future patients instead of stuffing pills down their throats to treat their mental afflictions.  

 

Also the reason why most doctors prescribed these medications without doing it case by case is because the pharmaceutical companies PAY these doctors points and rebates when they prescribed them to their patients.  So really it's all about the money....and not the patients.  Cuz it takes time to assess a patient properly and doctors are using the assembly-line method these days to treat their patients.  They are not taking the time to find out exclusively what may be the problem in a case by case situation.  It is much easier for doctors to just give their patient a pill and move on to the next unsuspecting patient.  As why they are in big trouble now and are being sued-both the doctors and the pharmaceutical companies. The only doctors who are qualified to prescribed these medications are psychiatrists...but!  

 

Many times unqualified medical doctors had been the ones to give patients these drugs and they do not know enough to do so and it is really out their medical jurisdiction.  So in these cases, it is always BEST to go seek therapy....first!  I find it is just better to do it old school and talk it out.    And if after you did all that and medication is required?  Go directly to a psychiatrist and bypass the "greedy" medical doctors. Cuz they really DON'T care.  But!
