Parents who are concerned about their babies’ mental health, please be aware that there are severe risks in the use of mental health drugs and infants. The drugs carry warnings such as hallucinations, delusions, mania, psychosis, aggression, suicidal thoughts and more. Babies’ mental health is an entire revenue source for prescribing doctors and for pharmaceutical companies. Yet, parents are nearly never told of the true harms that these drugs carry. Nor are they told of the fact that traditional, non-mental health doctors, can perform medical tests to evidence what physical ailment is causing the unwanted behavior in the infant, toddler, child and even adult.
In an article from the Wall Street Journal, titled, “Why Are So Many Toddlers Taking Psychiatric Drugs?”, it is cited that, in 2013, that “over 274,000 infants (0-1 year olds) and some 370,000 toddlers (1-3 years age) in the U.S. were on antianxiety (e.g. Xanax) and antidepressant (e.g. Prozac) drugs. This report also found that over 1,400 infants were on ADHD drugs.” Additionally, in 2014, The New York Times published the figure of over 10,000 toddlers on ADHD drugs.
The article continues to shock the reader by reporting that children going to doctor’s offices for the diagnosis of bipolar disorder had risen 40 fold over the past decade.
One of the most important points, made in this article, written by Dr. P. Murali Doraiswamy, Professor of Psychiatry and medicine at Duke University Medical Center, is that there are alternative treatments that are not made available due to the lack of incentives for doctor’s to steer parents in the direction of less harm. Babies’ mental health is being compromised by these mental health drugs and parents are not given full information on the FDA warnings nor the alternative treatments.
Wayne Ramsay, Attorney at Law, published an article, titled “Psychiatric Drugs: Cure or Quackery?” and in this article, he quotes multiple doctors who give their statements on the harms of psychiatric drugs. Among their statements are the following:
“…all psychiatric drugs have serious long-term adverse effects and tend to produce chronic brain impairment (CBI).” Psychiatrist Peter R. Breggin, M.D.,
As well as this, “There is no evidence that any class of psychiatric drug acts by reversing or partially reversing an underlying physical process that is responsible for producing symptoms.” Joanna Moncrieff, MBBS, MSc, MRCPsych, MD — Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Sciences, University College, London
Mr. Ramsay brings up the point that psychiatric drugs harm the brain and often permanently. He quotes Dr. Breggin as having written that “…except for the brain dysfunction and biochemical imbalances caused by psychiatric drugs, there are no known abnormalities in the brains of people who routinely seek help from psychiatrists…”
Mr. Ramsay’s article discusses nearly every aspect of psychiatric drugs, from the fact that the drugs are harmful, to the fact that there are alternative treatments, that psychiatric drugs do cause harm to the brain, disturb sleep, specifically dreams, deep sleep, how the drugs cause disease, how the FDA is in bed with pharmaceutical companies, the violent effects of the drugs, a review of each class of drugs and more. It is highly informational and factual and quotes leading doctors throughout.
In an article, titled, “Babies on psychiatric drugs: crime with no punishment, by Jon Rappoport, he cites statistics of babies on drugs in 2013, as:
“In the US, babies 0-1 years old are ingesting psychiatric drugs at these rates (for the year 2013):
Anti-anxiety drugs (e.g., Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan)—249,669 babies.
Antidepressants (e.g., Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil)—26,406 babies.
ADHD drugs (e.g., Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta)—1,422 babies.
Anti-psychotic drugs (e.g., Risperdal, Seroquel, Zyprexa)—654 babies.
Meanwhile, major media outlets waffle and wobble about the crime, experts in journals debate the crime, no one in the mainstream calls it a crime, the Department of Justice does nothing, and the pharmaceutical companies make billions.”
The long and short of it, for parents, is to do your homework! Babies’ mental health depends upon parents’ being fully informed. Take a look at the facts that are published all over the net. Look at the actual facts, not conjectures or hypotheses. The bottom line is that there are non medical tests, no brain scan, no chemical imbalance test, no blood test that can evidence one-single mental health disorder. The diagnoses are voted into existence by
