Dr. Eric Berg: You are an excellent student, top of your class, respected by your peers, successful full practice, and all these committees, these boards, 6 years post-PHD training, this is a lot of training. And then you closed your doors. Tell me why.. Dr. Linda Lagemann: I had my eyes open, I think it just took one too many times of having somebody come in to see me like a regular person on psychiatric drugs and not doing well, in fact doing worse and worse. And the people I saw by the way, these were not people whose hearing voices like severe. These are regular people actually high professionals top of their game, financial industry and it was just one too many times of somebody saying how they are feeling disconnected, the relationship is not starting to suffer that didn’t have the problems before because they just felt emotionally disconnected. One guy that really got to me was telling me about his 2 year old and 4 year old and come home from work, It used to be the joy of his day to come home and play with his kids on the living room carpet and he said he was just going through the motions and he didn’t feel any connections with his kids. And that was the drugs and then he did the whole thing slow, and people have to be careful coming off the drugs and felt fine. But anyway that just happens too many times. The other thing is, “The whole field is turned into labeling and drugging. That is just really the primary thing that’s happening now. And all of that training was a lot of different theories, meaning like a lot of different ways of describing “what is” and then theories about “why that is?”, but not really effective things to help what is.” Dr. Eric Berg: Wow. So I have a question, in that training which is a lot of training, how much training do you get in basic food therapy or diet connection to your mood? Dr. Linda Lagemann: None.

List of drugs that raise blood sugar. This information can come in handy in case you have high blood sugar and you are not sure what is causing it. Download Diabetes Diet eBook: https://goo.gl/UC5SZU We all get sick from time to time. We all have been given prescriptions other than our metformin or insulin. But did you know some medications can raise your blood sugar? I am confident that somewhere in that plethora of literature that accompanies most prescriptions is information that says that the drug will affect blood sugar. But how many of us actually read all that literature? Today I want to talk about common drugs that can raise your blood sugar. This list was compiled after researching the work of Mark T. Marino, MD. The list: Corticosteroids Thiazide diuretics Beta-blockers Niacin Antipsychotic drugs Striking a balance There is a longer list of drugs associated with diabetes, but the evidence for each of these is not very strong, or the medicine is only used rarely. For the more commonly used drugs that are known to worsen diabetes control, it is important to note that there remains a balance between intended benefits and unwanted side effects. Glucocorticoids can stop an inflammatory process like asthma, thiazide diuretics have been shown to be very successful at reducing high blood pressure and its complications, beta-blockers do protect against heart attacks, niacin does reduce coronary artery disease, and antipsychotic medicines can make the difference between hallucinating and perceiving reality. If you suspect that your blood glucose control may be adversely affected by a medicine you’re taking, speak with your health-care provider before making any changes. There may be an overall benefit to remaining on a drug that slightly increases blood glucose in some cases, or there may be alternatives that can be substituted. Unfortunately, no medicine is without its drawbacks, but by knowing what these drawbacks are, you can participate in an informed discussion with your health-care provider about the specific risks and benefits of a drug in your unique situation.

CCHR created this psychiatric drug database as a free public service compiling all documented drug regulatory agency warnings and studies from medical journals in an easy to search format. Psychiatric drugs such as antidepressants, antipsychotics and stimulants, have serious, life threatening side effects. International drug regulatory agencies including the FDA warn that these drugs can and do cause worsening depression, mania, aggression, psychosis, depersonalization, diabetes, hallucinations, suicidal and homicidal thoughts, heart attack, stroke and sudden death. The public are not being told or warned about these psychiatric drug side effects. CCHRInt has also produced a free downloadable report called "The Side Effects of Common Psychiatric Drugs" http://www.cchrint.org/videos/drugs/psych-drug-side-effects/ Warning: No one should attempt to get off of psychiatric drugs without doctor supervision.

Quetiapine is a second-generation (atypical) antipsychotic. It’s approved by the FDA for schizophrenia, acute bipolar mania/mixed and depression, and bipolar maintenance (as an add-on to lithium or divalproex). The extended-release form is also approved as an add-on for depression. Though its approved uses are limited, it’s widely used off-label as a single therapy for depression, anxiety, insomnia, OCD, and other conditions.

Circulation. 2015;e29-322. 5. https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/004024.htm ======================================= 👉 #1 Most Popular Prescription Drug That Causes Erectile Dysfunction & Impotence ======================================= If you’re a guy who is having erectile problems or lowered libido, you’re not alone. I get emails about this topic almost daily if you can believe it. And yes there are lots of causes. However, most guys never even think about the prescription drugs they’re taking, which can cause erectile problems and for sure, make this situation much worse. And today I’m going to reveal the #1 - most prescribed and popular drug, that is one of the biggest causes of impotence. Okay, so what drug is the biggest problem?... It’s blood pressure drugs.3 And if you're curious, the #2 worse drugs are antidepressants and other psychiatric medications… which I’ll get into in a future video. There are over 35 different hypertension drugs, which all cause some form erectile or libido problems.6 In fact, it’s estimated that over 70% of men who take blood pressure medications, decide to get off of them because of these negative side-effects.1,2 Also, these drugs cause “sexual” problems in women as well. Unfortunately, you can’t just get off your blood pressure medication and say “oh, who cares” because high blood pressure is known to cause heart disease, a heart attack or stroke. The sad part is that having high blood pressure ALSO causes erectile problems and lowered libido because of poor blood flow and stress on your veins, arteries and blood vessels. And the worse part is that 75% of the people who have high blood pressure, don’t even know it!4 So… what are you supposed to do? You have to lower your blood pressure?... And you can’t take prescription drugs?... Natural Solutions As I’ve stated in all of my videos, you do NOT need to take drugs to help fix your health challenges. Nature already has the solutions. Under today’s video, I’ve given you links to proven, all-natural solutions for lowering your blood pressure. In fact, it’s the SAME formula that my dad and I use personally. So whether you’re a man or women and you want to improve your sex drive, libido and help fix any erectile problems, make sure lower your high blood pressure, stay away from hypertension drugs and do it naturally! ======================================== Thank you for watching.

Watch more How to Understand Schizophrenia videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/512799-Side-Effects-of-Antipsychotic-Drugs-Schizophrenia Anti-psychotic medications are very useful and have helped many people with schizophrenia to lead healthy and productive lives by taking care of some of the symptoms, including delusions, hallucinations, disorganized thinking, disorganized behavior, and negative symptoms, or lack of motivation that may come with schizophrenia. However, they don't come without side effects. I'm going to talk with you about four different categories of side effects that seem to be very common. One is what we call extrapyramidal symptoms. Those are motor or movement side effects of these medications. The older anti-psychotics tend to have more of these side effects. They include feeling stiff in your muscles, having tremor in your hands or in your body, feeling restless and unable to sit still, or having what we call tardive dyskynesia. That occurs over time, where you might have movements of your mouth or of your limbs that are repetitive and that appear after a period of treatment. Those are the extrapyramidal symptoms, or EPS. They're more common with the older medications. With the newer medications, the more common side effects tend to be what we call the metabolic side effects, or cardiometabolic side effects. Those include weight gain, an increased blood sugar or risk for diabetes, and an increased cholesterol. Initially, we were really excited about all of the new anti-psychotic medications. Then, when we saw how people gained weight and got more heart disease, partly related to the medications, we started to see that there was a big risk there, because really, it's heart disease and diabetes that tend to be the things that lead to early mortality in people with schizophrenia. So, that's the second category of side effects. There's also anticholinergic side effects. Those include dry mouth, feeling flushed or hot, having constipation. Those are things that tend to happen with the anticholinergic side effects. Different medications, both old and new, have more or less anticholinergic side effects. One last category that I'll mention is prolactin. Prolactin is a body hormone that you have. For some of our anti-psychotic medications, in particular Risperidone, is probably the biggest culprit, increase prolactin production. What happens, then, is that women especially may not have their periods, they may have difficulty conceiving a child. And, for some people, there's breast enlargement and even lactation, both men and women. That can be a very disruptive side effect, obviously, and needs to be addressed. If you have side effects with anti-psychotic medications, definitely, there's many choices of anti-psychotic medication, and so you should speak with your doctor or psychiatrist about it, because they can try different things to see what works best for you and causes the least burden of side effects to you. Many people have no side effects at all from anti-psychotic medications, thank goodness. If you have schizophrenia and you're thinking about medications, find a treatment provider you trust so you can work on finding the right medication for you.

NOTE FROM TED: Please consult with a mental health professional and do not look to this talk for medical advice as the intersection of mental health and nutrition is still an emerging field of study. We've flagged this talk for falling outside TEDx's curatorial guidelines because it oversimplifies interpretations of legitimate studies. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this critically important talk, clinical psychologist Julia Rucklidge explores a range of scientific research, including her own, showing the significant role played by nutrition in mental health or illness. Julia J Rucklidge, PhD is a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. Originally from Toronto, she did her training in neurobiology (McGill) and Clinical Psychology (University of Calgary). Her interests in nutrition and mental illness grew out of her own research showing poor outcomes for children with significant psychiatric illness despite receiving conventional treatments for their conditions. For the last 6 years, she has been investigating the role of micronutrients in the expression of mental illness, specifically ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, anxiety and more recently, stress and PTSD associated with the Canterbury earthquakes. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

As much as my meds help me, it’s a battle to remember to do all the things I need to do to be able to take them: sign up for health insurance, pay my bill, make a doctor appointment, GO to that appointment, get my prescription, find a pharmacy that can fill it, remember to pick it up before it closes, remember to bring my ID so they’ll let me... So when I miss a step and find myself without my meds, it’s easy to wonder...are they really necessary? This is what happened when I forgot to pay my health insurance, stopped taking my medication for two weeks and tried to learn how to live without it. Please share -- because the stigma is real, and no one should have to feel ashamed for getting the treatment they need just because their disorder is mental rather than physical, invisible rather than obvious. Mental health is just as important as physical health, and it’s time we acknowledge that. *NOTE* -- I do not recommend going off medication without a doctor's supervision. A medical professional should be accessible to troubleshoot problems. If you can't reach your doctor, talk to a pharmacist.

Learn how important nutrition is in our daily lives! Psychiatric illness treated as nutritional deficiencies. Over 80% of serotonin is found where? NO NOT in the brain. It is in the GUT! This is why there has been such a huge jump in mental illness in America such as ADD, Depression and autism. The culprit is leaky gut which is from antibiotic use early in life. The antibiotics kill the normal gut flora and therefore make it impossible for us to break down the foods we eat properly. Even worse, it also leads to the ability of the larger proteins, such as Gluten, to get directly into the blood stream. This causes systemic inflammation which can lead to autoimmune disorders.

Petition here: http://www.petitiononline.com/TScreen/petition.html St. Petersburg Times By ROBERT FARLEY Published July 29, 2007 Skyrocketing numbers of kids are prescribed powerful antipsychotic drugs. More and more, parents at wit's end are begging doctors to help them calm their aggressive children or control their kids with ADHD. More and more, doctors are prescribing powerful antipsychotic drugs. In the past seven years, the number of Florida children prescribed such drugs has increased some 250 percent. Last year, more than 18,000 state kids on Medicaid were given prescriptions for antipsychotic drugs. Even children as young as 3 years old. Last year, 1,100 Medicaid children under 6 were prescribed antipsychotics, a practice so risky that state regulators say it should be used only in extreme cases. These numbers are just for children on fee-for-service Medicaid, generally the poor and disabled. Thousands more kids on private insurance are also on antipsychotics. Almost entirely driving this spiraling trend is the rise of a class of antipsychotic drugs called atypicals. These drugs emerged in the 1990s and replaced the older, "typical" antipsychotics like Haldol or Thorazine, which are often associated with Parkinson-like shakes. The atypicals were developed to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in adults. But once on the market, doctors are free to prescribe them to children, and for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. There is almost no research on the long-term effects of such powerful medications on the developing brains of children. The more that researchers learn, the less comfortable many are becoming with atypicals. Initially billed as wonder drugs with few significant side effects, evidence is mounting that they can cause rapid weight gain, diabetes, even death. They're also expensive. On average last year, it cost Medicaid nearly $1,800 for each child on atypical antipsychotics. In the last seven years, the cost to taxpayers for atypical antipsychotics prescribed to children in Florida jumped nearly 500 percent, from $4.7-million to $27.5-million. Medicaid and insurance companies have fed the problem, encouraging the use of psychiatric drugs as they reimburse less and less for labor-intensive psychotherapy and occupational therapy. Another factor: Doctors have been influenced by pharmaceutical companies, which have aggressively marketed atypicals. Whatever the reasons for the soaring use of psychiatric drugs in children, things have gotten out of whack, according to Dr. Ronald Brown. Last year he headed an American Psychological Association committee that looked into the issue. "The bottom line is that the use of psychiatric medications far exceeds the evidence of safety and effectiveness," Brown said. "What people need to do is what's in the best interest of children instead of what's in the best interest of people's pocketbooks. But children don't vote." The atypicals A new class of drugs emerged in the 1990s, touted as a better and safer way to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Here are the atypicals now on the market.

High Intensity Health Radio Episode #131: Kelly Brogan, MD: Dr. Kelly Brogan is an Integrative psychiatrist (trained at MIT and Cornell) who came on the podcast to chat about her new book, A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives. ➢ Dr. Brogan's New Book: http://amzn.to/1U26VH9 ➢ Read the Interview Transcript: http://bit.ly/1Rl49Ms ➢ Listen to the Audio in iTunes: http://highintensityhealth.com/itunes ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Lets Connect ➢ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/metabolic_mike ➢ Facebook https://www.facebook.com/MikeMutzelMS ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Key Takeaways from the interview: 01:58 “Before I stopped prescribing, I never once cured a patient” Dr. Brogan was a traditional psychiatric doctor from a traditional family. The goal of traditional psychiatry is to keep you functioning and to suppress symptoms. Many mental illnesses are not valid illnesses or diseases. They are symptoms. Most outpatient psychiatrists do not run basic blood panels on their patients to rule out known reversible causes, like B12 deficiencies. She began recommending fish oil, Rhodiola rosea, and other supplements to her patients on pharmaceuticals. Then she read an expose’ by Robert Whitaker called The Anatomy of an Epidemic, which brought her to a lesser known body of science. She stopped using pharmaceuticals and began to cure patients. Her goal is to not only get her patients off of their prescriptions, but to give them the tools to not need to see her. 05:45 Depression Medication Paradox: Practitioners and the lay person (via direct to consumer advertising) are taught that depression is a discrete disease that is likely heritable and is a result of a chemical imbalance, often a serotonin imbalance. There are antidepressant medications that are serotonin reuptake enhancers as well as other that serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and others that have little impact upon serotonin, but impact norepinephrine and dopamine. Trials show comparable efficacy in non-psychiatric medications like beta blockers or thyroid hormone. 07:51 Do Such Disparate Medications Work? Dr. Brogan says that these medications do not work. The reported efficacy is 30%. There is much unpublished literature. A psychiatry study found that 37 of 38 negative studies used to approve 12 antidepressants were not published because they were negative. When you adjust for active placebo effect, these medications have negligible efficacy. 09:14 Antidepressants: Active Placebo Effect: It is the recruitment of bodily beliefs about your being sick and there being a chemical fix. When you are in a trial, you are told that if you receive the treatment, you may get dry mouth, diarrhea, or headache. The placebo might be a sugar pill. When you start to get the side effects, you tell yourself that you are in the treatment group and you believe that you will get better. A follow up study of people who were successfully treated with Prozac were told that they would be randomized to placebo or continue on the same does that cured them. Both groups became depressed. The power of belief or expectancy is a very important and complex factor. 11:56 Long Term Effects: There is not a single study that suggests that being treated with antidepressants for any psychiatric disorder results in improved long term functioning or improved long term outcomes. According to the WHO, depression is the number one cause of disability, yet we have more prescribing of treatment than ever before. This should be inversely proportional. What if the treatment is inducing disability and a chronic disorder that might have otherwise been a reversible single episode phenomenon? It is time to re-examine the theory that depression has anything to do with brain chemicals. 13:07 The Cytokine Theory of Depression: The primary literature is beginning to support the idea that it could be a body-wide, system-wide phenomenon. It comes down to the mismatch of lifestyle with our over 2.5 million years of what our genes have come to expect. This theory asks what we can do to better align our lifestyle with those of our ancestors so the alarm systems in the body, inflammatory systems, and immunological mechanisms, are not on constant high alert. Depression is a Symptom 15:41 Diet vs Prozac: Prozac will not produce clinical effects, just side effects, for 6 to 8 weeks after treatment starts. Diet will produce positive effects within 30 days.

Professor Khalida Ismail, Professor of Psychiatry and Medicine gave her Inaugural Lecture, entitled "The mind in diabetes: the final frontier" on June 30th 2014: ‘Despite major advances in understanding the biological mechanisms underlying type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and the development of effective intensive medical interventions, around half of patients do not achieve optimal glycaemic control. This suggests that how people think and feel about their diabetes affects their diabetes self-management and that psychological interventions may be effective in improving glycaemic control. I will summarise my research programme in diabetes and mental health, showing how our key studies have been translated into improved patient outcomes and award-winning service innovations. Our research is also leading to new insights into the shared biology of depression and type 2 diabetes.’ The introduction was given by Professor Shitij Kapur and the vote of thanks, by Professor Sir Simon Wessely.

7 causes of night sweats Waking up in the night hot and in a sweat is one of the most unpleasant feelings. These waves of intense heat can interrupt a good night's sleep and leave you feeling sluggish the next day. So understanding what could be causing your night sweats is the first step to treating them. Below we've listed some of the most common causes of night sweats. It's important to note, though, that your night sweats might be caused by the hot climate you're in, too many blankets or even a mattress that retains your body heat. If that's not the case, one of these seven causes might explain why you're experiencing night sweats. 1. Menopause Essentially, your night sweats could be night hot flashes. MedicineNet explains that women who are in the perimenopausal state often experience hot flashes, which can occur in the middle of the night, waking you in a hot sweat. 2. Medications Some medications might be causing you to wake up in a sweat. WebMD explains that certain antidepressants, psychiatric drugs and even aspirin can cause night sweats. Talk to your doctor about the medication you take to see if it could be causing your night-sweat symptoms. 3. Cancer Night sweats can be an early symptom of cancers like lymphoma. WebMD says other symptoms that usually accompany cancer-caused night sweats are unexplained weight loss and fever. 4. Infection MedicineNet says an infection like tuberculosis, an abscess, endocarditis (inflamed heart valves) or osteomyelitis (inflammation in the bones) can cause night sweats. Other serious infections, such as AIDS, can also cause night sweats. 5. Anxiety Stress and anxiety could be causing your body to sweat in the night. The Mayo Clinic says other symptoms of anxiety include nervousness, tension and sleep trouble. 6. Sleep disorders Destructive sleep apnea or another sleep disorder could be causing your night sweats. Other symptoms that can accompany destructive sleep disorder include waking abruptly to gasping or choking, daytime sleepiness and high blood pressure, among others. 7. Hypoglycemia Low blood sugar levels can cause sweating, according to MedicineNet. People with diabetes might experience night sweats due to hypoglycemia at night. __ Ascending the Vale Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

Toxic Psychiatric and sleep drugs ("medicine") are directly linked to obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, cancer, heart disease and autoimmune disorders. They are also a major contributor and in many cases, the root cause of all epidemic intestinal diseases and disorders. They are filled with toxins, are endocrine disruptors, and reduce gut motility causing toxic gut syndrome which is responsible for many mental health symptoms of today, not the solution. Medicine or Murder is a video narrated by Genita M. Mason H.H.P., N.C., M.H - founder of The Biosanctuary, about the health risks, deaths and social deluge psychiatric drugs are creating across all populations. Their negative impact on society are ten fold compared to street drugs considering car accidents, crime, violence, and tax payer's cost yet they continue to not only be the standard of care for mental health issues but more frequently forced on pregnant women, children and the elderly.

Low testosterone and depression. That's I’m going to talk about in this video. Testosterone deficiency is a common cause of depression in men and can go unrecognized. As a psychiatrist, what I see is the either the depressed man who doesn’t get enough improvement with antidepressants or the man who is not particularly sad, but instead angry, irritable or anxious, or negative. Here are some of the other signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency. Signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency Behavioral Decreased assertiveness/increased submissiveness Decreased stress tolerance Irritability Depression or lowered mood Anxiety Dermatologic Loss of body and pubic hair (scalp hair is preserved) Diminished beard growth Thinning and drying of skin (decreased sebum production) Metabolic Mild anemia Diminished bone mineralization Obesity or increased body fat (men) Headaches Reduced muscle volume and strength Reduced general vigor and hardiness Asthenia Frailty (elderly) Sexual Decreased semen volume Erectile dysfunction Decreased sexuality (decreased libido, arousal, responsiveness) There are some things that have been linked to having low testosterone. They don’t necessarily cause it, but there is a link. These things are: Treated diabetes and obesity Having chronic headaches, Being over age 60 Having asthmas that has been treated and sleeping less than 5 hr/night There are some medications that can cause low testosterone Cholesterol-lowering agents like Lipitor Saw palmetto which is an over the counter treatment for enlarged prostate Flaxseed oil And a Zinc deficiency Disclaimer: All of the information on this channel is for educational purposes and not intended to be specific/personal medical advice from me to you.

According to the FDA Cymbalta may treat depression, diabetic related nerve pain, anxiety, fibromyalgia and low back pain. Also known as Duloxetine, the quality of evidence supporting the medicine unfortunately remains of modest to low quality. Actually some studies indicate no benefit when compared to the SSRIs such as Prozac, Zoloft and Lexapro. Similarly effectiveness in fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy appears unimpressive. Discontinuing Cymbalta may lead to a peculiar Discontinuation Syndrome associated with headache, dizziness, irritability, sleeplessness, tremor and lack of energy. Some people experience electrical shock like sensations referred to as “brain zaps.”

SKIP AHEAD: 1:01 – Antipsychotic Mechanism 1:58 – Antipsychotics and their Indications 3:30 – Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (Typical Antipsychotic Side Effect) 4:18 – Extrapyramidal Symptoms (Typical Antipsychotic Side Effect) 6:19 – Atypical Antipsychotics and their side effects 8:57 – Mood Stabilizers 12:58 – Anxiolytics and Benzodiazepines We will start with a quick review of some material from my previous video on psychosis. Symptoms of schizophrenia can be broken down into 2 categories, Positive and Negative Symptoms. Positive symptoms include behaviors or sensations that are not normally present. Examples include hallucinations, delusions, and catatonia. These symptoms are thought to be related to an excess of dopamine. I remember this by remembering that “doPamine has a P in it”. So P for Positive and P for Dopamine. Negative symptoms are the absence of normal behavior. Examples include a lack of initiative, diminished speech, disheveled appearance & flat affect. These symptoms are thought to be related to an excess of serotonin. As we will see antipsychotics affect dopamine and serotonin to varying levels. The indications for this class of drugs includes psychosis (mainly schizophrenia), Mania (mainly bipolar disorder), aggression and Tourette's disease. Typical Antipsychotics primarily block dopamine receptors in a non-specific manor. Therefore, these drugs work best for positive symptoms, and have little effect on negative symptoms. The non-specific mechanism of the drug also means there are lots of side effects. Some of these medications come in a slow release injectable form so they can be used in non-compliant and aggressive patients. There are a lot of high yield side effects so we will break them down one by one Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (or NMS) is a rare but potentially fatal adverse reaction of typical antipsychotics. It involves fever, altered mental status, rigidity and autonomic instability (such as tachycardia, hypertension, diaphoresis etc.). You may also see elevated myoglobin in blood or urine and elevated Creatine Kinase (CK). One of the ways I think about it is that it looks kinda sorta like Serotinin Syndrome that you can see with antidepressatns. If you see this you have to emergently stop the medication, provide supportive care and consider adding Dantrolene Extrapyramidal Symptoms (or EPS) are due to blockage of Nigrostriatal dopamine. It can present with a number of different symptoms. Akasthisia is a general sensation of restlessness Acute Dystonia is involuntary continuous muscle contractions often of the neck. Another common presentation of acute dystonia is Oculogyris Crisis when your eyes get locked looking upward and you have to lean over to see Dyskinesia (AKA Pseudoparkinsonism) presents like Parkinson’s Disease with symptoms like a pill rolling tremor, cogwheel rigidity & bradykinesia (or slow movement) Tardine Dyskinesia (or TD) is uncontrollable facial tics, grimacing & tongue movements As scary as these symptoms may look, they are generally not medical emergencies. In most cases you will continue to use the drug with perhaps a reduction in the dose or the addition of an anticholinergic mediation like Benzatropine or Diphenhydramine. Tardive Dyskinesia is the exception and requires cessation of the medication as it can be permanent. Usually you would switch a patient with TD to a 2nd gen antipsychotic. Hyperprolactinemia is a side effect due to Blockage of Tuberoinfundibular dopamine. It presents just like any other disease that increases prolactin. So you can have galactorrhea, gynecomastia, decreased libido and menstrual irregularities. The text for this video is too long and exceeds Youtube max allowed length.

Expert Panel Hosts: Robert Whitaker, Gabriel Cousens, Irving Kirsch, Gwen Olsen • Robert Whitaker - investigates how the influence of pharmaceutical money and guild interests has corrupted the behavior of the American Psychiatric Association and academic psychiatry during the past 35 years. He documents how the psychiatric establishment regularly misled the American public about what was known about the biology of mental disorders, the validity of psychiatric diagnoses, and the safety and efficacy of its drugs. He also looks at how these two corrupting influences encouraged the expansion of diagnostic boundaries and the creation of biased clinical practice guidelines. This corruption has led to significant social injury, and in particular, a societal lack of informed consent regarding the use of psychiatric drugs, and the pathologizing of normal behaviors in children and adults. Robert Whitaker argues that reforming psychiatry will require the neutralization of these two corrupting influences—pharmaceutical money and guild interests—and the establishment of multidisciplinary authority over the field of mental health. • Gabriel Cousens - Not all depressions are alike. And despite the attention given to Prozac and other drugs, there quite literally is no magic pill. Someone who suffers from depression needs a customized, individual program, one that attacks the personal, biochemical roots of the problem. Dr. Cousens shows how to heal depression safely by synergistically rebalancing what he calls "the natural drugs of the brain," using a five-step program of mood-boosting substances, vitamin and mineral supplements, and a mood-enhancing diet and lifestyle. Grounded in cutting-edge science, yet accessible and safe, he shows how to regain your optimism and energy through balancing your own biochemistry. • Irving Kirsch - Irving Kirsch has the world doubting the efficacy of antidepressants. Based on fifteen years of research he makes an overwhelming case that what the medical community considered a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment is little more than a faulty consensus. But Kirsch does more than just criticize: He offers a path society can follow to stop popping pills and start proper treatment. • Gwen Olsen - The United States health care system is killing Americans at an alarming rate, even though we spend over fifteen percent of the Gross National Product (GNP) on health care. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, our health care outcomes ranked only fifteenth among twenty-five industrialized nations worldwide. Adverse effects from prescription drugs have become the third-leading killer of Americans. Only heart disease and cancer claim more lives. We trust our doctors to inform us and our government to protect us from medical malfeasance that may put profits ahead of consumer health and safety. But the fine line walked by the FDA between the interests of the pharmaceutical manufacturers and the American public has continually been crossed. The result is the unleashing of an unprecedented number of lethal drugs on the U.S. market!

The incidence of scientific misconduct is increasing, making what we read in journals increasingly unreliable. And, Robin Williams was taking psychiatric drugs when he committed suicide – not surprising since a side effect of the drugs is increased risk of suicide.

This week we interview Psychiatrist, author and academic Doctor Joanna Moncrieff. Dr. Moncrieff has an interest in the history, philosophy and politics of psychiatry, and particularly in the use, misuse and misrepresentation of psychiatric drugs. She is one of the founding members and the co-chair person the Critical Psychiatry Network. The Critical Psychiatry Network consists of psychiatrists from around the world who are sceptical of the idea that mental disorders are simply brain diseases and of the dominance of the pharmaceutical industry. We discuss Dr. Moncrieff’s work to address the realities of psychiatric drugs and the groundbreaking RADAR study which focuses on antipsychotic drugs. In this episode we discuss: How Dr. Moncrieff became interested in Psychiatry That, while working as a junior Psychiatrist, Dr. Moncrieff came to realise the dominance of drugs as a psychiatric treatment Why Dr. Moncrieff founded the Critical Psychiatry Network That it is often difficult to challenge the status quo in Psychiatry Dr. Moncrieff’s work to formulate a drug centred model as an explanation of how drugs work in the body and the comparison to a disease centred model How the chemical imbalance theory of depression is not supported by evidence That psychiatric drugs are mind altering substances in themselves, in other words they alter normal thinking, emotion and behaviour That much of the research over the decades has ignored the fact that these drugs alter the way that people feel and behave That these drug-induced effects in themselves mean that placebo controlled trials cannot demonstrate that drugs target an underlying biological problem Psychiatric drugs are not sophisticated or targeted treatments for mental illnesses, their effects are general in nature How patients tend to stay on the drugs because withdrawal is difficult or they feel they may struggle without the effect of the drug As a general principle, people should take the minimum dosage of these drugs for the shortest possible time How case studies of people who have struggled with withdrawal are very important to demonstrate the difficulties and to help with guidance and support How psychiatric drugs cause adaptations in the brain as the brain moves to compensate for the effects of the drug and that this compensation is often responsible for withdrawal effects when the drug is stopped The RADAR study (Research into Antipsychotic Discontinuation and Reduction) which looks at long term use of antipsychotic drugs and provides support to gradually withdraw users from their drugs How this study will both help patients withdraw and also build up experience and knowledge to help others in future The concerns around long term use of antipsychotics and possible harm to the brain Podcast show notes: http://www.jfmoore.co.uk/LTW_episode_17.html To give me your feedback please email me on email@example.com © James Moore 2017
