These drugs originate from the chemical phenothiazene, which was used as synthetic dye in 1883. In 1934 Phenothiazene was used by the veterinary practice as an insecticide and extended for killing swine parasites; phenothiazene affects the brains Acetlycholinergic System and results in lethal increases of acetlycholine in the periphery and central nervous system of insects !!

Real Disease vs. Mental “Disorder”

Psychiatric disorders are not medical diseases. There are no lab tests, brain scans, X-rays or chemical imbalance tests that can verify any mental disorder is a physical condition. This is not to say that people do not get depressed, or that people can’t experience emotional or mental duress, but psychiatry has repackaged these emotions and behaviors as “disease” in order to sell drugs. This is a brilliant marketing campaign, but it is not science.

Psychiatric Disorders Voted Into Existence

Psychiatry’s diagnostic criteria are literally voted into existence and inserted into the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM). What is voted in is a system of classification of symptoms that is drastically different from, and foreign to, anything in medicine. None of the diagnoses are supported by objective evidence of physical disease, illness, or science.


Psychiatry Admits It Has No Cures

“We do not know the causes [of any mental illness]. We don’t have the methods of ‘curing’ these illnesses yet.”—Dr. Rex Cowdry, psychiatrist and director of National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), 1995

No Brain Scans For Mental Illness

Psychiatrists claim that brain scans now show brain changes that “prove” mental disorders, such as schizophrenia and depression, are brain-based. There is no scientific evidence to prove this: it remains what the “fine print” in the studies tell you:“suggests,”“may” and “it is hoped.”


Side Effects

Psychiatrists can’t predict what adverse side effects you might experience because not one of them knows how their drugs work.

Psychotropic drugs are increasingly being exposed as chemical toxins with the power to kill. Psychiatrists claim their drugs save lives, but according to their own studies, psychotropic drugs can double the risk of suicide.


No Genetic Proof of Mental Illnesses

“No claim for a gene for a psychiatric condition has stood the test of time, in spite of popular misinformation.”—Dr. Joseph Glenmullen, Harvard Medical School psychiatrist

Of course this is crazy. No sane person could possibly see it otherwise. It is, though, how psychiatrists make a living. It’s not terribly difficult, actually. Just select a behavior, a mood, or a complaint, and attach a diagnosis to it. The only trick is to make sure that it’s listed in the psychiatric bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM for short. The reason is quite simple: Each so-called disorder comes with its own special number. That number is entered into a form and sent to an insurance company. Then, like magic, money gets returned in the mail.

This is not an exaggeration. It’s exactly what happens. There is absolutely no science behind any of the DSM diagnoses. Not one shred of proof demonstrates that there’s any physical disorder of the brain behind a single diagnosis. People have experimented by going to several different psychiatrists and making the same complaint in each office. The result would be laughable, except that real people are diagnosed and drugged…and drugged and drugged…by these same shrinks every single day.

I agree, I don't know the adverse effect of taking all these medications. But I am very well aware of the adverse effects when I go off these medications. Come, take my hand and walk with me through the land of mental illness torment. See what it is like to battle your own mind constantly, see what it is like to try to lie down to sleep at night because your body aches from exhaustions but there are a 1000 demons in your mind. They have no tests to prove it exists? I am living proof, there are millions of people going through the same thing that are living proof. None of us sat down together and decided to make this up. Drugged and drugged and drugged is the only way we can find release. Just like the cancer patient, the person in constant medical pain. Our pain is as real as theirs, why are some minds too small to see this? I never took so much as an aspirin before I was diagnosised with this and didn't even have a family doctor I went to. I hate doctors!!!! Yet I never miss an appointment with my psychiast, the cost is to great.

You are so wrong!!!!!! Absolutely no idea what you are talking about!!!! My father never drank in his life, never took his medication! It's obvious you know nothing about mental disorders, find something constructive to do and something you know something about to discuss with others. You are wasting your time and the time of others who stop to read your posts on this site.

Most psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal reactions, sometimes including life-threatening emotional and physical withdrawal problems.


Misinformed doctors and misled parents, teachers, and patients think this is evidence that the individual “needs” the drug even more when what the patient really needs is time to overcome the drug’s contrary effects on the brain and body.

In short, it is not only dangerous to start taking psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision. Methods for safely withdrawing from psychiatric drugs are discussed in Dr. Breggin's books, Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry: Drugs, Electroshock and the Psychopharmaceutical Complex (New York: Springer Publishing Company, 2008) and Medication Madness: The Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Crime (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2008).
