Stopping psychiatric drugs can be as dangerous as starting them. It's important to taper off psychiatric drugs carefully and with support. we urge readers to read Dr. Peter Breggin's book Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal and share it with your therapist and other support persons. Dr. Breggin provides a host of valuable information about why to avoid psychiatric drugs, adverse effects from them, how to carefully withdraw from the drugs, gathering support for the withdrawal journey, and answers to various issues that may come up during the withdrawal process.

Truth!!! When I detox from my antidepressant, xanex and ambien I was an absolute mess, but God helped me get through it. At one point it only concerned me when my blood pressure went up so I went to the hospital and they wrote down in my chart that I was manic. Ahhhh no I was detoxing and stated that! Once you’re diagnosed with that and yes it was a false diagnosis. I actually brought it up to the psychiatrist because I was an idiot in my 30s and I just wanted help. It never goes away that diagnosis. It’s been almost 6 years, I’ve never felt better!!! Getting back with Jesus Christ. What’s the best thing I ever did and throwing that junk out!! Not needed, never was!

Thank you for all that you do and have done to help me years ago but I just listening to you on YouTube and I bought your book! Much love . May God bless you and keep you safe Dr 💝

What a huge heart you have Dr. Breggin . My Lord. Imagine if everyone in your profession of health care had your heart?.. no autrocities would occur .. which really makes you think; without doctors to carry out Mengele instructions, pharmakia would not be the 3rd leading cause of death. Why are people suing big pharma companies? When it is the " dealer " that is the real criminal? Thinking out loud😁 .

Dr. Breggin, In my opinion, you are one of the most important physicians our country has been blessed to have, period. You have been calling out the dangers of psychiatric drugs for decades, with great courage and perseverance, writing life-changing books, testifying against Big Pharma, and doing many educational videos. Many millions of people and their families have had their lives utterly destroyed by the needless and reckless prescribing of neurotoxic psychotropic drugs. You have done amazing work teaching and educating others about how dangerous these medications are, and have saved more people than you will every know. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Wow!!! Thank you for spelling this out. I am lucky that my Mom stressed good nutrition. I realize now that many behavioral problems are results of having nutritional deficiencies. Much cheaper than horrible drugs.

I remember thinking 30 yrs. ago, that when the SHTF, we are going to see a lot of zombies walking around due to the fact that many are taking so many mind-altering drugs. We have certainly accelerated from there.

Where I live, the schools are almost becoming mental health ctrs. That is very expensive to the taxpayer, and that's the least of it. These stupid parents go along to get along, and then they're hit with the awareness of big problems. We had two suicides in our town of roughly 21,000 last year.

Students are allowed to id as LGBT and are allowed to act out on this as well as heterosexuality. This is playing with fire.

Teens are in a very vulnerable stage where their psyches are just being formed, and they have a very hard time (as anyone in any stage of life, but esp. adolescence) with any form of rejection. Furthermore, I think they still have laws in effect that sex below the age of 16 is verboten--yet, it's being facilitated in our schools.

As everyone knows, therapists cannot make any kind of value judgment or be susceptible to professional challenges. So that's two strikes.

Parents, don't be afraid to step up to the plate. Forget human respect. These are your children that you will only have for 18 short years. Do what you can--if you don't, it's three strikes and you're out...to say nothing of your children themselves.

I will go on a bit to say that I understand that giving a young child a phone capable of connecting to the internet gives your child connection to destructive ideas. Then there's social media. There are law suits pending, but like anything else these days, I doubt it will make much difference to stop this cultural rot. I feel for our children having to raise their own children in such a world.

The reset is coming, and it won't be a good one. We can't go on this way. Stay true and pray.

Nearly everyone I know is now on some sort of "anxiety assistance." Last one was a friend who has been a health advocate all her life, but is now going through a tough time due to selling a property and downsizing. Her first appointment with a new primary care Dr resulted in a Lexapro script. Unbelievable.

The Veterans Administration is a major buyer and distributor of psychotropic medications, and I do not believe it’s very helpful for most veterans. A few decades ago, after complaining of a few common issues related to autism I wanted to try to overcome with perhaps counseling and maybe diet change, which I never complained about or needed medication for in the past, such as over-sensory perceptions that will cause nausea and headaches, like strong orders and bright artificial lights in department stores or mall, passing by candle shops, walking down light fixture isles with whirling ceiling fans in conjunction with all the other orders from people’s perfume & cologne and all the extreme sounds and intercom noise, etc… I was put on Zoloft, then Paxil, then Luvox, then a couple others, one week after another, then gave up. Holy hell the side effects were maddening-terrifying. Honestly, if those meds create what’s supposed to be “normal,” I’d much rather be abnormal, forever.

Link below.

Although extremely sad, anyone with open eyes can see this mental health tragedy, all around them .

What a fantastic reveal and huge kudos as always to Dr. Peter Breggin, - whom so many of us call - the ethical and humane conscience of psychiatry.

Dr. Breggin is a giant amongst giants but there are fewer giants in psychiatry .

The other eternal hero of mine in this field is Dr. Abram Hoffer (Canadian) who also was a kindred spirit much like Dr. Breggin.

Dr. Abram Hoffer released thousands from a life of torture in asylums.

He made many but two phenomenal discoveries in psychiatry..

1. Having studied Pellagra (often called DEATH BY dementia) he noticed the vast connection to vitamin B3 as flush Niacin. (FLUSH Niacin is the best form of b3 and by far the smallest molecule - it is also a precursor to NAD/NADH)

2. Dr. Abram Hoffer also questioned whether all people would equally absorb a vitamin or critical molecule and discovered that some people had huge absortion issues and as a result "needed substantially bigger doses."

Those interested in psychiatry would do well to listen and read Dr. Peter Breggin And Dr. Abram Hoffer book.

Niacin the REAL STORY by Dr. Abram Hoffer is an excellent read covering a vitamin combo that creates miracles .

Here is one such B3 miracle story. (Link)

Best in Health to ALL and again kudos, and love to the Breggins.

So, how does a person on psychiatric medication go about finding a psychiatrist or doctor who will be willing to guide a patient through the long, involved, difficult, delicate process of helping them withdraw from medication? The vast majority of physicians, probably all over the country, do not share Dr. Breggin's negative view of psychiatric medications. So, unless someone can afford to hop on a plane, fly to the part of the country where Dr.Breggin or a similar doctor practices, then set themselves up in a hotel or other long-term living accomodations there, to begin the process of being treated by him, or whatever similarly "non-biochemially-oriented psychiatrist" they can find...then that patient is pretty much stuck living wherever they're living and staying on their medications...since it's too dangerous to get off of them on your own. And most "mental patients" like myself (being on a combination of SSDI, SSI and Food Stamps) simply don't have the financial resources to make a trip like that...and if no one in your family is either in a financial position to pay for such a trip, nor, for that matter, would they even be willing to go along with such a plan even if they could (since, in my experience, I used to "catch all kinds of flack" from, not just my family, but from my doctor and other professionals, years ago when I "dared" to read Dr. Breggin's book Toxic Psychiatry)...so, most family members and medical professionals are not open to the suggestion of helping a person "withdraw" from psychiatric drugs, so...like I said: i'm, just, stuck, living where and how I'm living, for the time being...unless psychiatry ever changes its theories and stops prescribing "medication." It's a tough situation. No one with Dr. Breggin's "maverick" opinions are available near me to help me get off medicines and away from psychiatry. And, it's been that way for more than half of my life. Sad.

It's crazy that we knew from studies a while ago that serotonin is not what makes you happy and the SSRIs don't work.

Benzos are dangerous too, ask Jordan Peterson, who snuck away to Russia to get rehab for his addiction and issues.

We also know that statin drugs, which they push on everyone are also damaging, especially to the liver.

Meanwhile, cannabis and other helpful anti depressives were illegal for a long time.

Why does it take so long for science to catch up?

Follow the money which funds the research which is done by "drones" that don't think for themselves (probably because they're on SSRIs or benzos).

After the Reset, the globalists plan on the general population being a lot poorer, dependent on state aid, living alone, and not having families. I believe that "mental health" was a blueprint for Agenda 230.

Is there a greater goal other than money?

Is this what has made society into crazed covid zealots ready to do anything the govt says?

I feel like we're living in Huxley's dark dystopia.

Psychiatry needs to be abolished. Its unreformable. The harm they have caused me and countless others. /Big pharma, universities,and the state are to be blame. There is no healthy outlet for descent or freedom of speech.
