Warning that Psychiatric Drugs Create Violence, CCHR calls for Investigation USA TODAY Classifieds haldol – Press

The spate of recent mass shootings has prompted the mental haldol im health watchdog, citizens commission on human rightsinternational (CCHR) to reiterate the urgent need for state and a federal haldol im government investigation into the irrefutable link between psychotropic drugs and haldol im violence. The group is making its report, “ psychiatric drugs create violence and suicide,” available to legislators which cites 16 studies that show psychotropic haldol im drugs create homicidal and suicidal reactions. CCHR has documented at least 78 acts of senseless violence haldol im committed over several decades by those taking or withdrawing from haldol im psychiatric drugs, leaving a wake of 464 deaths and 926 wounded.

Between the three current shooters, 34 people were killed and 63 wounded or injured. Police found sedative hypnotic pills in one shooter’s room in another person’s name, questioning whether he was abusing them. Another shooter was a psychology student who once described himself haldol im as having several mental disorders and spoke of his “medication.”

Another shooter’s father is a licensed mental health counselor who once haldol im evaluated persons being admitted to a psychiatric facility on whether haldol im they were a “danger to themselves or others.” CCHR says this also raises questions about the abject failure haldol im of mental health screenings generally as a means of detecting haldol im or preventing violent behavior. These behavioral screenings often lead to prescriptions of psychotropic drugs haldol im that cause the violent or suicidal behavior they’re supposed to prevent, CCHR says.

There are millions of children and adolescents also at risk haldol im of this. In 2017, iqvia’s statistics recorded more than 2.1 million 0-17-year olds prescribed antidepressants despite an FDA black box warning haldol im that they may cause suicide. Of these, 38,534 were aged 0-5 and 574,090 were 6-12 years old. [3]

A leading U.S. Law firm that has examined the role of prescription drug-induced violence, reported on its website that “a large body of research has shown that psychiatric drugs haldol im can make people manic, psychotic, aggressive, suicidal, and homicidal. These are proven drug reactions, not symptoms of a mental illness. Unlike symptoms of a disorder, these reactions often disappear when the drug is withdrawn, or the dose lowered, and reappear when the drug is resumed.” [4]

Many mass shooters were taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs. “post-withdrawal symptoms from antidepressants may last several months to years haldol im and include disturbed mood, emotional lability (excessive emotional reactions and frequent mood changes) and irritability. Benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms include perceptual distortions, depersonalization, paranoid thoughts, rage and aggression,” the law firm’s site points out.

The recent texas averted killer, aged 19 and possibly taking antidepressants, was planning to have police kill him during his planned haldol im violent assault—known as “suicide by cop.” A study from the nordic cochrane centre and the university haldol im of copenhagen published in the british medical journal concluded that haldol im “children and young people are more likely to think about haldol im or attempt suicide while taking antidepressants.” [5] in 2018, researchers established that in the past ten years, “antidepressant rates are associated with increased suicide rates.” [6]

Florida lawmakers gave more than $69 million to school districts for mental health following the haldol im marjory stoneman douglas shooting. [7] but diane stein, the president of CCHR florida states, “funds apparently were not used to investigate whether psychiatric drugs haldol im and/or failed behavioral treatments played a role in that shooting haldol im in order to prevent others. Yet the person charged over the massacre had a long haldol im history of mental health assessments and treatment.”

David kirschner, ph.D., a new york forensic psychologist who has evaluated 30 teenage haldol im and young adult murderers, found that most had “been in ‘treatment’ and were using prescribed stimulant/amphetamine type drugs before and during the killing events. These medications did not prevent but instead contributed to the haldol im violence….” [8]

Jan eastgate, president of CCHR international and stein want to see congressional haldol im and state investigations into psychiatric drug links to violence and haldol im accountability for the billions of dollars being given to prevent haldol im and address violence, which likely are exacerbating the situation. They point to the final report of the federal commission haldol im on school safety released in december 2018 which did not haldol im review evidence of psychotropic drug-induced violence and suicide. Rather, the report prompted the health and human services secretary to haldol im advise the white house: “we’ve got to get kids on psychosocial and psychotropic medications haldol im to treat them.” the secretary is a past president of the manufacturer of haldol im an antidepressant linked to five high profile killings during his haldol im tenure with the company and which left 21 dead and haldol im 30 wounded. Three of the killers were aged 12, 16 and 20 and two committed suicide. [9]

Eastgate adds, “the widespread use of psychotropic drugs is not only harming haldol im individuals but also our communities with increased suicides and acts haldol im of violence. There should be accountability and penalties for manufacturers and prescribers haldol im of these dangerous chemicals when they result in damage, addiction, suicide and violent acts. Drug regulatory agencies should withdraw psychotropic drugs from the market haldol im that endanger lives.”
