Top Psych Druggers by state USA only PsychSearch

I looked thru 11 pages of titles to see if this was here yet I grew weary... forgive it is a repeat... 

 

http://www.psychsearch.net/top-psych-druggers/

TOP PSYCH DRUGGERS

This is a collection and compilation project of public records from each state showing the top prescribers of Medicaid paid antipsychotic drugs Abilify, Geodon, Risperdal, Seroquel, Zyprexa; anti-anxiety drug Xanax and pain killers OxyContin and Roxicodone. The drug name, the prescriber name, prescriber ID number, number of prescriptions and Medicaid dollars expended for each drug are being compiled. Most of the states promptly provided the requested records. Some have flat-out refused to provide the records. This is a work in progress. The information on this webpage is based on records obtained from state agencies. If you believe any of the information is incorrect, please contact us: records@PsychSearch.net."

 

I wish they had included antidepressants in the list but since there are people here who are on other drugs or withdrawing from other drugs thought some may find this interesting.

If you read further on you will find a list of states in the USA only that tell who the top prescribers are for that state of each drug who knows your doctor's name may be on the list. 

I have not read it all as it is USA only.  

Many nose around the site a bit and see what else is there.  

peace to all.

BT, I searched and this hasn't been posted else where. It was a great find. Hope people see it. I guess it could be moved to InTheMedia, because online is media> I don't want to start a thread there so let's hope a bump will help,

I was likely reading something else that brought this subject up at the time or another site was talking about it. I tend to be into the nitty gritty sometimes and look at such things as sometimes there are surprises where we don't expect to find any I wish this were Canada so I could see about here.  I did check a rich state against a poor seems the poor had more drugs sales. Yes California and Washington just to see if there would be a difference none of my business but I was watching a video today about income inequality how those who are poor use more drugs and die younger so that was my reason for checking those two. The theory of more drugs for the poor seems to be correct if I read it correctly.

I've been hearing about Sen. Grassley a lot lately. If he's not in ITMTF I'll find something and find a thread to put it in. I don't know exactly what he's up to, but his name was in the docs I just saw looked at in the link at top, and I think he's gotten prosecutions of Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) Fraudster/Hucksters.

 

I agree with B that it's a drag they don't care about ADs yet. People find dependance on pleasurable drugs immoral and resent paying for it. There's plenty of media about it, and I recall an elderly Chinese-American MD going to prison because of over-prescribing and possibly deaths. He said he was helping people, and maybe he was. First for pain, and they became addicts by accident, and then for maintenance, which isn't different from methadone for heroin addicts IMHO. (It was a series in the LATimes a couple of years ago. I'm still sad about it.)

On the other hand, glorious charlatans like Lieboreman spout falsehoods and media promotes them. Other docs believe him, we believe those docs, and we become addicts, whether you like the word or not. We die, too. And we are expensive. So why don't our docs go to jail? Because we don't exist.

Poor old Jefff [ spelling his name wrong in case he is here searching now :) ]. He's a figure of fun on social media. He held a live Q&A the other day, and I bet there were more people in the average minivan that hour than were at his chat. Fewer than ten. Of all the messages it generated, about 70% were his. Maybe he'll do another Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA). We could have an off-campus party there. I'll keep an eye on it...I normally don't.

 

B, non-prescription drugs users have a higher rate of crime than everyone else, but everyone else is nothing, or psych drugs and are a much bigger group than the non-prescription users. Would be interesting to find out what the crime rate in the psych drug group it. Violence has been studied, but I haven't seen studies of theft, fraud, and vandalism.

This was on the site B linked in the OP, re Grassley (Might as well stay here)

http://www.psychsearch.net/top-psych-drug-prescribers-investigation/

 

Emory U's Dr. Charles Nemeroff, who mean to David Healy (via 1boringoldman.com) was a subject of Grassley's 2008 congressional inquiry, and had this to say, at the time, through his Emory's spox:

 

"To the best of my knowledge, I have followed the appropriate university regulations concerning financial disclosures."

Did he decide which ones were appropriate?

 

I especially want Nemeroff prosecuted. He did a lot of venlafaxine trials along with Keller, Thase, and Dunner. Nemeroff got fi-resigned but got the same kind of job at U of Miami. That's a whole other good story reported in Forbes, that was also pasted into a post in ITMTF. I'm linking to Forbes because there are 61 comments to read.

Yes he got a slap on the wrist and another great job that is justice for the rich and powerful I read this has been such an ongoing thing I wrote about it long ago . It is kind of old news if you know what I mean year after year they do this and on Effexor activist there were reports of how the top jobs at pharm companies hired folks from the FDA and around we go... to me it is another world one that controls ours that can't be really touched their lives just continue on fine no wd for them.

Ethical violations[edit]

Nemeroff's undisclosed ties to drugmakers and under-reported incomes from them have raised questions about conflict of interest.[3][4] Following a congressional investigation, Nemeroff was found to be in violation of some federal and university regulations and resigned as chair of the psychiatry department at Emory University.[5][6][7] He was also forbidden by Emory to act as an investigator or co-investigator on National Institutes of Health grants for at least two years.

According to the Annals of Neurology, the court documents released as a result of one of the lawsuits against GSK in October 2008 indicated that GSK "and/or researchers may have suppressed or obscured suicide risk data during clinical trials" of paroxetine. Nemeroff stepped down as department chair amid revelations that he had received over $960,000 from GSK in 2006, yet reported less than $35,000 to Emory University. Subsequent investigations revealed payments totaling more than $2.5 million from drug companies between 2000 and 2006, yet only a fraction was disclosed.[8] In July 2012, GlaxoSmithKline pleaded guilty to criminal charges.[9] The settlement is related to the company's illegal promotion of prescription drugs, its failure to report safety data, bribing doctors and using kickback schemes.[10][11][12][13]

  • Joseph Biederman – another psychiatrist who was investigated on similar charges
  • Conflict of interest investigations[edit]

    Chuck Grassley led a 2008 Congressional Investigation which found that well-known university psychiatrists, who had promoted psychoactive drugs, had violated federal and university regulations by secretly receiving large sums of money from the pharmaceutical companies which made the drugs.[4] Congress investigated charges that Biederman earned consulting fees of at least $1.6 million over eight years from pharmaceutical companies, but did not report much of this income to university officials.[5] Johnson & Johnson gave more than $700,000 to a research center that was headed by Biederman from 2002 to 2005, and some of its research was about Risperdal, the company's antipsychotic drug.[6] Biederman responded saying that the money did not influence him and that he did not promote a specific diagnosis or treatment.[6] In 2011, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School disciplined three psychiatrists, including Biederman, for violating conflict of interest polices.[7][8]

It would seems this is not against the law... :) or they would be in jail it is a not nice thing a lie is all.

This is an excellent post.  Look at all those sleeze bags making a fortune off of the nation's pain and suffering.  These doctors should all brought together on an island and then ____________ (I'll let you decide what to do with them, but I know what I'd do to them).

 

We have a LIST.  Maybe we can organize something to bring awareness to these people.

 

 

Look at this one, the highest paid medicaid abuser in California according to that list:

She's a "child" psychiatrist.  the worst scum on this entire planet.  What a horrible human being.  Wolf in sheeps clothing for certain.

Put effexor in their water for a couple of years and let them party hard any way they wish... then take it away. 

 

As for actions I am out of ideas.  I don't even live in the USA here I hear nothing.  Mushroom growing in the dark you know the rest
