(NaturalNews) Antidepressants are the most prescribed (often overprescribed) medication in the United States. But, contrary to popular belief - taking Zoloft, Prozac and Lexapro (to name a few) can be very dangerous to your health. These selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's) can cause physical pain, involuntary movement, sexual dysfunction and life-threatening drug interactions. Clearly, most people have NOT been told the entire story. (keep reading)

Make no mistake - antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs severely alter brain chemistry. Did you know that taking psychiatric drugs can lead to drug-induced mental disabilities? Just check out some of the many health problems associated with psychiatric medications:
Antidepressants cause emotional "numbness" - often providing an artificial relief from emotional suffering.
Antipsychotic drugs disturb frontal lobe activity - causing a chemical lobotomy - making emotionally distressed people more submissive and less able to feel.
Mood stabilizers slow down overall brain function - dampening emotions and vitality.
Benzodiazepines suppress overall brain function with temporary relief of tension or anxiety - at the cost of reduced mental function.
Stimulants blunt spontaneity and enforce obsessive behaviors in children, making them less energetic, less social, less creative and more obedient.Former FDA official shocks the world with his professional comments
When a psychiatric drug
(first) comes out onto the market - every citizen becomes a guinea pig (or test subject) on the effects of these toxic drugs on our brains. In other words, just because a drug is "government approved" - does NOT mean the drug is safe! If this is hard for you to believe - just read what the former Director of the FDA's division of Neuro-Pharmacological Drug Products - Paul Leber had to say about the initial "drug approval" process:
1. The patients and volunteers in the study are not likely to represent a true sample of the people who will be treated once the drug is marketed.
2. The studies are quite brief.
3. There may be differences in post-marketing dosing.
4. The "unique combination of concomitant illness, polypharmacy, and compromised physiological status" of real-life patients treated after the drug is approved cannot be anticipated.
Leber warned that testing done by pharmaceutical drug companies for FDA approval "may generate a misleadingly reassuring picture of a drug's safety in use." He continued to say, "In sum, at the time a new drug is first marketed, a great deal of uncertainty invariably remains about the identity, nature, and frequency of all but the most common and acutely expressed risks associated with its use."This week's guest: Peter Breggin, M.D. - The Conscience of PsychiatryDiscover the dangers of psychiatric medications - before it's too late - Thu.
