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.

This one is interesting.

http://www.ahrp.org/cms/content/view/738/150/

 

A text book to teach family doctors ghost written... 

he instances identified in the letter involve ghostwriting by only one company--Scientific Therapeutics Information--and only one drug--GlaxoSmithKline's antidepressant, Paxil (peroxetine). 

Duff Wilson of The New York Times reports (below) that previously sealed GlaxoSmithKline documents  show that a psychiatry textbook, whose listed authors are psychiatrists,  Charles Nemeroff, MD and Alan Schatzberg, MD, was actually ghostwritten by Sally Laden of STI. GSK paid the ghostwriter and the "authors" who penned their names to the book.

 The sheer audacity prompted former FDA commissioner, Dr. David Kessler to exclaim: "To ghostwrite an entire textbook is a new level of chutzpah. “I’ve never heard of that  before. It takes your breath away.”  Surely that is a dubious distinction in academic medicine!

I started looking at some of those links this morning and was horrified to read of an 18 months old baby

who was having tantrums. The doctor prescribed an antipsychotic. By age 3 he was on 5 different adult psych drugs.

He was a sedated, obese, drooling shell with no life in his eyes. Thankfully he was rescued and tapered off all but 1.

It really upsets me that children are medicated because they are not 'normal' .  It is one of my greatest hates.

No-one is allowed to be different, be themselves. Everyone has to conform to some stereotype or be drugged

into line.  :angry:

Hard to understand as the article bounces around a bit... he seen him at 6 months ... was drugged for head banging and being non verbal??? 

whatever... like he says if your going to drug a child you need to have a dx so he gave him one... this was my pre med job...I find it difficult to believe.  I just the news paper article is a credible source.  

There are still a lot of parents who trust doctors with their kids lives I guess if a doctor said the child needed the drug many parents would not see a reason not to follow doctors orders.  Sad as can be. Another thing that surprises me is the child developed well and had not withdrawal and no side effects ... find that a bit hard to believe and wonder if they know what to look for.
