In an exclusive in-person interview in New York City with WND, London-based Dr. David Healy criticized pharmaceutical companies that have made billions of dollars marketing Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, known as SSRIs.
Psychotropic drugs prescribed for school children cause violent behavior, Healy stated.
Healy insisted the problem today is that doctors working with schools to control the behavior of children are inclined to prescribe SSRI drugs without serious consideration of adverse consequences.
We are giving drugs to children who are passing through critical development stages, and as a society we are really conducting a vast experiment and no one really knows what the outcome of that will be.
WND contended that putting more mental illness screening into schools would actually increase the incidence of school shootings, not reduce the violence.
He sees a propaganda campaign being conducted in the
If school children are screened for mental illness problems, this presumably will lead more medical doctors to put more students on more pills, he said.
SSRI drugs covered in the sortable database include Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine), Celexa (citalopram), Lexapro (escitalopram) and Luvox (fluvoxamine).

Of course, the Liberal MSM will not cover the possible mental illness/pychiatric drug issue with Lanza
And you can be sure the usual “You’re a liar if you deny Sandy Hook didn’t happen” and/or “WND is WorldNutDaily” posts will come soon from our esteemed PhonyCon Liberal friends who will take a few minutes away from their “Teen Mom” marathon on MTV to chime in on this
I worked in an Air Force help desk atmosphere back around ten years ago. We had a young female IT airman arrive...who had bizarre behavior and I (a retired NCO and a contractor) questioned how she could hold a security clearance. After a month or two...it was common knowledge that she was being given the maximum amount of Prozac per her weight.
For two years, I watched incident after incident that should lead people to question her stability. A new boss of hers decides to use her weight problems and put her out of service. That was the only way that she was going away....otherwise, she would still be around today.
My general opinion is that either the Prozac pushed her along to do a lot of stupid things, or it kept her from doing even more things. Either way....she should not have been around.
This meds game....I think....is jeopardizing the public into believing that nutty people can be made safe via some drugs. I just don’t believe it anymore.
A nation of kids living on the planet Miranda.
Another failed progressive idea.
Is your child a latent Reever?
Does anybody know?
these kids arent crazy because of what they take, they are crazy because of what they dont have
God Fearing parents
A Church that teaches about sin and the Savior instead of save the whales or civil rights or gays are normal
What they lack is a Christ centered home, what they get is online porn, video game violence, fast food meals, constant liberal indoctrination, and false religious teachingthat all religions are the same
There is a cure, and it is found in the Bible, found in Jesus Christ.
That’s funny, when we had families going to Church every Sunday instead of little league or soccer or the big game...we didn’t have these fears, did we...
“If school children are screened for mental illness problems, this presumably will lead more medical doctors to put more students on more pills, he said.”
You mean those doctors who have their office decorated ceiling to floor with the names of their favorite drugs? oh no they are only going to give the drugs to people who need them. /s
The SSRI’s are not the only problem. The real problem is the atypical antipsychotics. If you look at all the drug company settlements, they pay off the parties suing them and admit no guilt. Then they just keep on selling them.
One side effect that people don’t realize is that SSRI’s block a person’s ability to pray. I work with people teaching them how to meditate, which is really just extensive prayer. I perform a simple test to demonstrate to an individual the effect of their change in perception as a result of their prayer. It’s like taking the tuning knob off the radio and saying “This is the only station you can listen to!”
People who are on the SSRI’s do not have the ability to change their consciousness up or down. The same drugs that blocks an individual’s ability to fall to lower levels and experience the depression or overwhelming fear also blocks a person’s ability to raise their consciousness toward experiencing the joy of the higher realms in prayer and meditation.
List of atypical antipsychotics
The following are approved and marketed in various parts of the world:
Sulpiride (Sulpirid, Eglonyl)
Ziprasidone (Geodon, Zeldox)
I took Ritalin in college, not because I needed it, but because it helped me study and pull all nighters. All I did was ask a doctor for it and he perscribed it no problem. The stuff puts you in a surreal, zombie like state where you almost feel out of body. Very similar to the high achieved snorting cocaine (yes, I have tried it). This was me, fully grown... I can’t imagine a child taking it, much less every single day.
Anyone who can not be trusted to own and bear arms should not be running around loose, whatever the reason.
I became depressed (or something) after my father died in my 40’s. Call it mid-life crisis, whatever. Left to my own devices, I would have made it through it. I chose to talk to my doctor about it because it was effecting my home life and was effecting me in my role as a father. I had no more than mentioned this when the Doctor was writing a prescription for Prozac. Reluctantly, I decided to try it. Here is what I can tell you in hindsight:
1) This medicine will make you fat. With no change in diet or exercise, I quickly gained 30 pounds in six months.
2) You don’t feel “right” the entire time you are taking this stuff. Just off cognitively. I had the mental acuity of a bowling ball.
3)I had slight improvement in general mood and cheerfulness. But, for me, just as there were heightened positive senses, the lows were lower as well.
I decided to stop taking it on my own. Just threw the bottle in the trash, which I did in haste and now know wasn’t a good idea. There is a withdrawal. For a couple of days I had what I can only describe as “zaps” where I had trouble controlling my thoughts. I was aware and in control of my thoughts, but I could not control what I was thinking or stop thinking about something.
I can see how this would screw up a kid. I can also see how these drugs could be a relief. Above is just what I experienced. Never again for this cowboy.
Never again for this cowboy.
Straight out of a fascist playbook.
I am more afraid of my kids taking the bus than I am about other kids taking medications:
According to 2005 data from NHTSA, an average of 21 school age children die in school transportation-related traffic crashes each year. Six of those deaths occur in school transportation vehicles. This number applies only to daily school routes and does not account for extracurricular activities that take place outside of normal school hours.
Not exactly a "top psychiatrist" in my book.
