Hi Mason, thanks for raising this topic up! It is actually a very serious problem. I'm not even talking about addiction. Some doctors prescribe Vicodin without thinking about consequences, just to make their own life easier. I remember one day couple years ago when I came to my dentist with a terrible tooth pain. I have already spent a few days before this visit trying to decrease this pain with Aleve, different tooth pain relief treatments from my nearest Walgreen's, alcohol swabs, etc. So I finally got an appointment with my dentist. It should also be mentioned that regardless of my pain, I had to wait for 2 days before I got the appointment. I'd wish my dentist to get into the same situation, btw. But ok, I finally got the appointment. Do you think it helped? Not really. It was just a beginning of my bigger problems.

It was definitely a problem with a root canal. But, instead of taking care of the root canal, my dentist told me that he doesn't see anything on X-Ray and prescribed me Vicodin! I was fool that I agreed to try!Brick wall Brick wall Brick wall

Two days later when the pain was still severe I finally decided to go to another dentist. And I found pretty easy how good my solution was. This dentist made another X-Ray and found that in addition to 3 treated root canals, there was 4th root canal that has never been opened and treated. Wow! Such an interesting discovery! It was the last tooth in the raw and I guess that was the reason why the first doctor didn't want to deal with it. It took about 20 minutes to take care of this root canal and the pain was gone, forever. No pain, no Vicodin, no nothing! I was really happy. But the lesson that I have learned was the following. If you know and you are positive about the real reason of your pain do not let doctors foolish you. Do not agree to take any narcotics only if you have a very serious reason for that. This Vicodin almost killed me. I've never taken any narcotics in my life, never smoked, etc. But these pills were s terrible! I'll never repeat my experience again. And I would never recommend anybody to take these or other narcotic pills. The videos are talking about addiction. I spent only 2 days with this Vicodin, and I actually took only one pill, the rest of the period I was trying to recover after this pain helper. Never-never again!

Btw, it's hard to believe, that I'm sure there are people driving their vehicles after taking these Vicodin like medicine. It's extremely dangerous, but this is our real life and we all live with this problem among these drivers.

I would not be so rectilinear and categorical. The doctors prescribe Vicodin just because they are recommended to do so. And most of them have never tried to take this medicine for sure to know the consequences of taking just one doze of such a drug. The most important thing - this drug causes addiction and there are many ways to buy it, say, on So you'll never know why's driving his car behind you and how dangerous this person is. There is a paradox. You can easily buy Vicodin and a lot of other so called pain relievers with no prescription, buy I for example was unable to buy a simple Interceptor for my dog! The online pharmacy wanted me to mail (not to fax or email, but mail the original prescription!) them a prescription of the veterinarian. Isn't that funny? The dogs are more important than people. I need to buy Interceptor once a year because nobody sells over 12 dozes. 6 - easy! But to get a prescription I need to take my dog to veterinarian, get a complete test, pay for everything and it's not free anyway. I'm young and not spending money for my own health as I spend for my dog!

Here is a new just uploaded video about kids and antidepressants.

Kids And Anti-Depressants - Chris Pitman & James Tierney

Chris Pitman Shot killed his grandparents and burned down their home while on the Antidepressant Zoloft & James Tierney Prescribed *Effexor she started having suicidal thoughts[* not approved for any one under 18 years old] - WCNC.COM 6 News

The bad news is that these drugs are in use for years and this problem is not new at all. Here are a few videos from previous years. Nothing has changed since that. Only the number of prescriptions is growing up, the number of people taking these drugs on a daily basis is huge.

Antidepressants found to be no better than Placebo

Here is the video published on March 7, 2008.

CBC news covers the recent studies showing that Antidepressants were found to be no more effective than Placebo. The questions were asked why were these Antidepressants approved if they were no more effective than the Placebo but yet they have harmful side effects i.e. Suicidal tendencies, Homicidal tendencies which many times lead to school shootings and other terrible events. Terrible withdrawal effects and many, many more. The question does have to be asked, Why would regulatory bodies such as Health Canada approve these Antidepressants after being given all this evidence? Seems like corruption between them and the Pharmaceutical industry.

The first time I saw this evidence come to light was at a Truehope presentation a number of years back where they talked about the harmful side effects of these antidepressants and the lack of effectiveness of them.

Here is another video published on August 4, 2009.

Are Antidepressants Overprescribed?

Most Americans on antidepressants have other symptoms, not depression. You can read more about this story here:

This video shows that the usage of antidepressants was increased from 5.8% in 1996 to 10.1% in 2005. Is it scary? Yes, it is. There is no guarantee that one day your car is not get hit by a driver taking these pills, or someone takes guns to school, etc. So the problem is not only not eliminated, but dramatically increased as well as the drug consumption, including by very young people.

Are these pills dangerous? Very! Here is another video showing a very low qualification of doctors prescribing these drugs.

In Memory of Indiana (Effexor Infant Death Antidepressants Pregnancy MOTHERS Act)

Here are couple comments:

Uploader Comments (amyphilo)
My 8 month old baby boy James passed away Nov 21st. I was not taking Effexor, but I too encountered major medical mistakes by physicians that make me very angry. I know there is no greater sorrow than what your family is experiencing. Your baby girl is so adorable!!! Just keep your eyes on Jesus and seeing your precious ones again one day soon. Everything will be made right in the end, God said so!!

Please take care and know that you are in my families prayers from now on.

Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss.

Big Pharma has too much power and pull in the US. Watch prime time TV and you will see a commercial spot for a drug or pharmaceutical company during almost every break. Our people are being brainwashed into believing that medication is the solution to every problem. Modern doctors are now referred to by Pharma as "prescriptionists"... Wake up America! They're killing you with one med and treating the symptoms with another....

Antidepressants, School Shooters, & Suicide

The evidence is in. A small percentage of those taking antidepressants will become homocidal and/or suicidal. But a small percentage of 30,000,000 is more than hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. alone! Though most of those people manage to get off the medications before acting on strong violent impulses, that's a lot of lives placed in jeapordy. And even if not common, too often, the result is tragic. Here's the topper: On average, these drugs barely work better than placebos in alleviating depression!!!

(Yes, they do seem to have dramatic impact on depression in SOME individuals. But if, on average, they are barely better than placebos, then the vast majority of users either get no benefit or the benefit of some must be offset by increasing problems in others. The result is that large studies show that, ON AVERAGE, the SSRIs are barely better than placebos, despite good results experienced by SOME people.)

Can Antidepressants Cause Violence?
Moira Dolan, MD
Medical Accountability Network

What your Doctor isn't Telling You.
Psychiatry vs. Physical Medicine

Dr. Moria Dolan, Executive Director for the Medical Accountability Network discusses the link between antidepressants medications and suicide, violence and school shootings.

Seung-hui Cho w/ the Virginia Tech massacre adds to a long list of incidents over the last 15 to 20 years including Columbine and Red Lake High,

She also discusses antidepressant drugs like like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor or Wellbutrin.

These medications are known to cause adverse events which can contribute to violence such as hallucinations, agitation, emotional instability, violence, paranoia, etc.

These adverse events are clearly labeled on the FDA approved prescribing information leaflet for the medication. These labels often contain confusing medical terms and Dr. Dolan explains in plain English what these adverse events means.

Although the psychiatric advertising jargon of the chemical imbalance in the brain theory is widely promoted, Dr. Dolan points out that there are no biological markers for mental disorders. There are no physical tests done to measure someone's brain chemistry.

Depression is widely associated with the neurotransmitter serotonin however, there is no standard by which one can measure an abnormal serotonin level.

Additionally, SSRI (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) as well as other psychiatric drugs show an affect in the brain during brain scans whereas psychiatric diagnosis don't.

Hannity's America with Douglas Kennedy on Antidepressants

Fox News, Hannity's America with Douglas Kennedy, on antidepressants, violence, suicide, and homicide.

Top Comment: "If airplanes had the failure rate of antidepressants, no one would fly. A psychiatrist not quoted in this segment said there's is a 2% incidence of psychotic episodes as a side effect of taking antidepressants. A reported 19 million people over 18 yrs are taking antidepressants. That is 380,000 extra psychotic episodes. I've had two adult friends put on these psych drugs and tried to kill themselves within a few weeks. They were never suicidal before. Just say NO to drugs".

Peter Breggin - Antidepressants (O'Reilly Factor - 9 Jan 02)

Dr. Peter Breggin ( has been the medical expert in countless court cases involving the use or misuse of psychoactive medications. This unusual position has given him unprecedented access to private pharmaceutical research and correspondence files, information from which informs this straight-talking guide to the most prescribed and controversial category of drugs: antidepressants.

Dangers Of Antidepressants Suppressed (Fox News)

Poster Comments: "Addiction, violence and suicide - these are some of the thousands of risks of antidepressants, but you won't hear about it from your doctor, because he doesn't know.

Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor, Prozac - how effective are they? Does Big Pharma want you to know? Douglas Kennedy - Fox News.

The risk of suicide at least doubles for children taking antidepressants according to short-term clinical trials.

Antidepressants are compared by researchers to cocaine in the DSM lll.

Yes, the problem is very serious. Here is what really scares me. Thanks to the publisher!

Antidepressants Facts, The Truth about Psychiatry Depression

Antidepressants Facts, The Truth about Psychiatry Depression Drugs

1. They Don't Work!

• Antidepressants have no impact...

Almost 50 clinical trials were reviewed by psychologists from the UK's University of Hull, who found new-generation antidepressants worked no better than a placebo for most depressed patients.

See a few BBC Videos on this research and some other cool stuff:;q=antidepressant...

The Original Research Document

• The UK Newspaper The Guardian reported on Feb.27, 2008 that the government yesterday released details of its £170m plan to train 3,600 more psychological therapists in the wake of a study showing that antidepressant drugs such as Prozac are no more effective than a placebo.

2. Big Pharma Lies!

• They routinely suppress the results of research which have negative results for their products.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the effectiveness of a dozen popular anti-depressants has been exaggerated by selective publication of favorable results, according to a review of unpublished data submitted to the Food and Drug Administration.

Among the many drugs that were found to have increased their effects as a result of selective publication and/or data manipulation:

Lexapro, Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor

Wall Street Journal link:

3. You are a Victim of Marketing!

• The New York Times reports that the diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder has increased 4000% in 10 years!

• USA Today report shows that as ad spending goes up, the more you ASK for specific medications:

• Big Pharma routinely pays many Psychiatrists:
Pharma paid $57 M to Medical Staff in Minesota alone (1997-2005);adxnnl=1&oref=s...

4. Harmful Side Effects: Suicide, Murder, School Shootings

• Among people under 25, the risk of suicide doubles for those on anti-depressants:
The New York Times article:

• Unless you have been living under a rock....They are connected with most school shootings and many other murders.

Great ABC Report on School Shootings, Suicide, Murder

Here´s a link to SSRI Stories - a never-ending list of new items connecting anti-depressants to murder, suicide, etc...

5. Shrinks Still Have NO Test!

For More Info:

6. Quitting is a Bitch!

• This video shows just how bad the situation is:

• See also, Bipolar Blast and Furious Seasons among countless other blogs on this subject:

7. Long Term Therapy Works!

• The New York Times reports that psychotherapy for as long as nine months is significantly more effective than short-term treatment for alleviating depression associated with bipolar disease, new research suggests.

8. YouTubers Love "How To Heal Depression"

• Based on the theories of Transpersonal Psychology, Ken Wilber and Carolyn Myss. This video reflects how I, personally have gotten out of three different depressions in my life, drug free. Many formerly depressed people who have watched the video have said that it reflects their former situation very well.
Check it out!

• And if that doesn't work, go see SFJane!

People, what are you doing??? If this is so serious, then why are you prescribing these drugs, why are you taking them??? Here is a good question in this movie: "What kind of society have we become?.."

Antidepressants and School Shootings, Suicide, Addiction

A shocking Compilation of Video clips showing negative side effects of Antidepressants. Suicide, homicide even to the point of school shootings. Best Case scenario you only experience Withdrawal and Addiction. My solution has not been medications/drugs but a company called Truehope.

Andrea Yates

A video about Andrea Yates, a woman who experienced Post Partum Depression with Psychotic Features.

Comment: "Andrea was suffering from severe psychosis. Her post partum depression was severe. Rusty made her live in a old bus because Rusty believed in a particular pastor. He treated her like a breeding mare. He knew how bad she was but didn't get her admitted. Rusty expected Jesus to heal her. Quitting meds when you're not ready leads to med resistance later."
