CCHR Release re Psych Drugs

From PrudentPressAgency
FDA Alert On Violence and Suicide-Inducing Stimulants
By Prudent Press Agency
The Food and Drug Administration says that “ADHD” stimulants cause visual hallucinations, aggression, violent and suicidal behavior.

Since the 1980s, Citizens Commission on Human Rights has exposed the dangers of stimulants such as Ritalin prescribed for the psychiatric invention, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). For years psychiatry has promoted the notion of a “chemical imbalance” to prescribe psychiatric drugs to over eight million schoolchildren - a $1 billion dollar a year industry - despite the fact that no medical or scientific test has ever validated psychiatry’s theories about chemical imbalances. Medical experts say there is no evidence that ADHD exists as a physical, neurobiological disease and that prescribing cocaine-like stimulants for something that cannot be physically diagnosed is child abuse.

The FDA finally ordered labeling changes to methylphenidate [Ritalin] products, including Concerta to warn that these drugs can cause “psychiatric events.” These are described as “visual hallucinations, suicidal ideation, psychotic behavior, as well as aggression or violent behavior.”

Bruce Wiseman, president of CCHR in the U.S., says, “Parents have been denied information on these dangerous suicide and violence-inducing drug side effects for years, unwittingly placing their children at risk. The public awareness raised in the media recently about these and other psychiatric drugs and Congressional Hearings into why such information has been withheld, may finally mean that parents will be able to make truly informed decisions about protecting their children's health, instead of being further victimized by psychiatry's smoke-and-mirrors history of fraud and deceit."
