For over a decade, Alex Jones has been calling them ‘murder-suicide pills’.

Another excellent and timely post. The USA is way over-prescribed. Becoming dependent on Big Pharma to the detriment of both public and personal health.

For people interested in learning more about how many Americans are on prescription drugs, I do have a data breakdown here: "Americans are taking more and more prescriptions drugs. How much more? Let's see the data!" @ https://americanexile.substack.com/p/americans-are-taking-more-and-more

It does contain credible sources on among other things why antidepressants do not work as promised, but are now contaminating our water sources -- and our fish! A Midwestern Doctor [The Forgotten Side of Medicine] is one of my sources! But you can skip that and cut straight to the data dashboard, if you wish: https://rpubs.com/Thom_JH/polypharmacy_usa

All best!

I coined the term "White Knuckle Surviving Self" post psych med iatrogenic brain damage. Nobody, not a single doc or "expert", believed me and this lived experience is what saved me, a second time, from the deadly injection. It took 3 to 5 years to recover from 4 years on the poisons. It was by the grace of God that I survived. Here's a story that I would like to share and that came from an online support group called Surviving Antidepressants ~ Yesterday, the Devil whispered in my ear "You are not strong enough to survive the storm." Today, I whispered in the devils ear "I Am The Storm." ~ PS It's part of my hypothesis the psych meds are why so many are so severely cognitively dissonant right now. Big pharm and "their" devilish plans.

“Antidepressants have warnings for both suicidal and homicidal ideation and the FDA warnings indicate those reactions to be at almost double the rate for those under the age of 25. That is not just killing yourself or someone else but having persistent ruminating thoughts of both suicide and homicide, along with the same persistent thoughts of various methods of killing – thoughts Eric complained of within only weeks after first being placed on Zoloft. Putting a gun in his hand is NOT what produced those thoughts, but a drug did, and the drugs even carry a warning that they can produce that!!

With only me and a couple of others working to gather these cases over the past two decades out of 70 school shootings we have had 68 school shooters on antidepressants … you know this has to be only the tip of the iceberg. Seems pretty simple math at this point!"

I am blown away by this. I consider myself fairly well informed and well read. I am clearly a little delusional. I know this is a different drug class but I took ambien and had sleep walking issues. I consider myself lucky to not have harmed myself or anyone else. That happened many years ago and caused me to distrust anything a company was advertising Thank you for this information I am late to the game.

Regarding term "conspiracy theory ". Conspiracies happen ALL the time. Police, insurance adjusters, arson investigators etc all have to develop ideas that would fit known facts... they have to come up with theories of how these crimes, conspiracies happened. (Parents and teachers do this!,). Nothing inherently wrong with a conspiracy theory.

People have been trained by CIA to use it as a term of denigration to silence those who rejected JFK assassination fairy tale. Sorry, CIA, I'm not playing your game on this one.

I have 2 conspiracy theories. One covid 19 mass depopulation scheme. Secret societies took over Vatican in October 1958.

But! They are actually 1 conspiracy theory since same secret societies are running both of them. Gotta have 1 world religion to usher in one world government

Yes

The corruption and collusion (for profit and power) has been going on for decades in multiple realms…

the sickening of people …is an industry.

Our water

Our food supply

Vaccines

Medications

The book- Vaccination, Social Violence, and Criminality

The medical assault of the American brain is a very interesting read, if you haven’t read it yet.

The author, Coulter, suggests a connection between neurological damage and the present high level of criminality in American society.

Thank you for bringing this issue out into the open and explaining so clearly. Both Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson are doing heroic work -- they saved so many lives during the Covid- and Pharma-captured era, educating anyone who would listen. Ingraham repeatedly spoke (and still speaks) with Drs. Peter McCullough, Harvey Risch, and Jay Bhattacharya, saving countless people from death-by-shot and death-by-COVID.

My doctor prescribed SSRIs for lifelong anxiety. I was reluctant to take them and turned down his offers at least twice. He reassured me the side effects were overblown and the SSRIs would make me feel better. So I finally took his advice, but asked if he would help me get off them if I decided they weren't for me. He said he would.

I did feel better for a while (placebo affect?), but later I noticed many physical side effects occurring and felt "something" was wrong. By then, I had completely lost faith in this doctor, who told me the COVID shots were "safe and effective" and REFUSED to consider information I sent him from AAPS and AFLDS about my concerns. He actually berated me for sending this information.

I therefore had no choice but to wean myself off the SSRIs. I researched carefully and found a good resource. Using the chart provided in that article, I very gradually and successfully reduced the dose over many months until I was SSRI and side effect free.

Fortunately, I wasn't violent, but perhaps that's because I'm a Medicare-age female.

Thank you MWD for your dedication to exposing SSRIs. I've been a fan of Dr Ann Blake Tracy for more than twenty years. http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/

I think she pioneered awareness around this issue. This is a great time to be alive with doctors like you writing about the extreme and frequent dangers of SSRIs and getting over 50,000 views! And finally this heinous criminal enterprise has gotten television exposure. Wow. Thank you for letting those of us who don't own a TV know and posting the links.

Stay away from Pharmaceuticals if at all possible… look for nutraceuticals that can replace these poisons…

Every close friend or partner I have known to go on antidepressants has displayed extreme personality changes, specifically an marked increase in insensitive and selfish behavior. I don’t know if it’s causative, but I’ve read that many antidepressants are known to cause ‘emotional blunting’.

This could be the most meaningful, essential, and impactful article I've ever read, for the times we're in, the problems we're experiencing... Add to it that we're causing kids to question fundamental things like GENDER, that we're constantly preaching to them that THE PLANET IS DYING, and we're shooting them up with AN EXPERIMENTAL VACCINE and it's not looking good for our kids, is it? Divorce, emptiness, and absence of God and spirituality... social media... they're suffering, God bless them. They're absolutely suffering!

a.mw.dr, Great article series highlighting serious weaknesses in how medicine is practiced in America. Hats off to you, Carlson, and Ingraham for speaking out and informing on this important, but mostly ignored, topic.

Don’t think this and other self-created disasters by the drug makers and their regulators will ever be remedied until those involved in the incompetence and malpractice underlying them are held personally liable, both financially and criminally.

Drug makers will continue to be happy to pay massive fines as longs as this results in much larger profits, and none of those responsible are ruined financially or go to prison. Same for the drug regulators who enabled them by violating federal law -- Administrative Procedure Act, National Research Act, Belmont Report, etc.

Hope those with influence, like yourself, will be able to convince some lawyers to go after the individuals involved, because ruining even one of them financially or criminally will help create fear in the others as a deterrent.

I still remember that Newsweek cover with Prozac on it. Must've been 1988 or so. "A Breakthrough Drug for Depression" Wonder how much Eli-Lily paid for that cover story!

My sister was almost destroyed after 20 years on antidepressants. After two serious suicide attempts, she decided to quit all antidepressants 10 years ago. She has been functional and happier since. What happened to her was a crime.
