Recommended Posts

Please everyone see this video on You Tube...

 

 

For everyone who has ever seen a psychiatrist, listened to them and taken their drugs...

 

An eyeopener....

 

From the mouths of psychiatrists themselves to the rampant problem that is going on today...

 

I just want to say how proud I am of everyone on this board who has made the decision to get off their drugs and this video just confirms my decision and should confirm yours...

 

Let's not make the mistake of believing their lies anymore or falling into their trap...

 

Hope everyone is doing well today and keep climbing up that mountain....

BRILLIANT! Thank you for posting this. I know why you wanted to post it in the intro section

so it would be seen by us all, but once it drops to the bottom of the page it will be missed. 

In here it will come up on google searches and more people from outside will see it.

 

That is a real eye opener with the manual containing 376 mental disorders!! And that

is the 'bible' doctors use for diagnosing!  :angry:  

 

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders ( DSM ) 

 

Oppositional defiance disorder, adolescent rebellion disorder, normal kids growing up

are labelled with disorders. I've read about all this but that video really hits the spot! 

**I am not a medical professional, if in doubt please consult a doctor with withdrawal knowledge.

 

 

Different drugs occasionally (mostly benzos) 1976 - 1981 (no problem)

1993 - 2002 in and out of hospital. every type of drug + ECT. Staring with seroxat

2002  effexor. 

Tapered  March 2012 to March 2013, ending with 5 beads.

Withdrawal April 2013 . Reinstated 5 beads reduced to 4 beads May 2013

Restarted taper  Nov 2013  

OFF EFFEXOR Feb 2015    :D 

Tapered atenolol and omeprazole Dec 2013 - May 2014

 

Tapering tramadol, Feb 2015 100mg , March 2015 50mg  

 July 2017 30mg.  May 15 2018 25mg

Taking fish oil, magnesium, B12, folic acid, bilberry eyebright for eye pressure. 

 

My story http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/4199-hello-mammap-checking-in/page-33

 

Lesson learned, slow down taper at lower doses. Taper no more than 10% of CURRENT dose if possible

It was well done and I watched this all the way through. What stood out was "money made from diagnosing and drugging our most trusting and vulnerable". We need more and more of this for others to know the absurdities and dangers of psychiatry.

Unable at this time to correspond by private message.

this guy I like and I found him in the block of videos after I watched the first video you posted above...

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNBvL920Zaw

 

he talks here in the first part of this video about the dsm 5... 

Like it a lot they talk side effects... 

WARNING THIS WILL BE LONG
Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey.

Wow! Straight from the horses' mouths. I can't believe there was a mathematics one. Does this mean that if we can't do maths we need psych drugs??! Made up labels sums it up. And made up labels for side effects and withdrawal symptoms, no doubt.

The only way out is through.

Great video!! so scary , what did they do to us :(

2007 - 2013: was on citalopram (tried to quit a few times, never worked, always went back on. max dose 40mg)

2012-2013: was tapering my citalopram all down to 2,5 mg then quit.
2013/aug: Took  my last pill 

W/D hit me bad after a few weeks off my medicine.

2014/August: 12 months off (much improved)

2015/April: 20months off. ( much improved, still some symtoms comes in waves, but not so intense.)

2015/june: 22months off. FELT different than before, all shakings suddenly stopped, feel much better. a fantastic feeling!

2016/Feb : 2 years and 6 months off, END of my suffering. I feel perfectly fine and back to normal. 
2018/Oct: Iam still feeling great. It is hard to believe my own story when I read back, what I went through!

If a person weren't already depressed, this would push you in that direction. The thing that stood out most to me was the quote re:"....effective marketing, that has nothing to do with science." So scary and sobering. So many of us are caught up in something neither we, nor the supposed experts, really understand.

 

The other question this begs is, of course, how ordinary human beings learn to cope constructively -- in our homes and workplaces, and socially -- with emotional, cognitive, spiritual, and behavioral/relational distress. What skills and virtues must we know and use in order to do this for ourselves and each other? How do we cease looking for quick fixes to complex problems? Are we willing to live with uncertainty and discomfort, and with the plain truth that we all aren't alike or what we usually call "healthy?" At bottom, this is the real question, as so many of us struggle to disentangle ourselves from dependence on drugs.

 

It also seems that the human mind likes to categorize things/people/situations....isn't "taxonomy," of sorts, one way that our mind/brain seeks to make sense of things and create order? But don't we also get in trouble when we overdo it with this faculty/tendency....group and lump together people and things that aren't, in fact, all that similar? Doesn't this happen in many arenas of life? It seems this is part of the human condition that is hard, hard to understand and deal with.

We are more alike than different as far as potential to heal I hope... and as far as the above goes... the type of world we live in is ARRANGED by other humans... how we cope or don't cope has something to do with the way things are arranged... 

 

Take a look at Denmark the happiest place in the world... look at how their systems are Arranged... this should speak something to you on these issues.

 

I only know one Dane so I can't comment on them all... but the outlook is so very different.
