Psychiatrist Carmine Pariante Won’t Prescribe Seroxat..


I have to say fair play to Carmine Pariante for debating Joanna Moncrief in this live Q and A on YouTube. I don’t agree with many of his views on SSRI’s, however I thought it was interesting that (in a response to a question for Bob Fiddaman) he seemed to think that Seroxat (paroxetine) ‘has one one of the worst side effect profiles and withdrawal symptom profiles” and ‘as a clinician’ he doesn’t use it’…

Good to hear that he wouldn’t touch Seroxat with a barge pole, however what about all the tens of thousands of people who had to suffer Seroxat’s horrors? what about the Seroxat suicides? what about GSK’s behavior in relation to it?

Were we all just psychiatry’s human guinea pigs Carmine?






Seroxat/Paxil and Violence…

I developed suicidal/aggressive/ tendencies when I was on Seroxat (Paxil) and I also became severely agitated from akathisa (another horrible Seroxat side effect)- and there have been multitudes of similar experiences of Seroxat horror stories documented for over two decades now. Seroxat can literally push you over the edge, this drug should have been banned a long time ago, or at the very least severely restricted for new users… but GSK can’t let anything get in the way of their profit margins can they? For them profit is the bottom line. Ethics and human life are merely inconveniences…

This recently uploaded video of David Carmichael’s experience of Paxil should serve as a warning of just how dangerous drugs like Seroxat can be.

The Real World Damage Of GSK’s Notorious Seroxat (Paxil/Aropax) Drug

Bernadette Murdoch

“…One teenage patient taking the new antidepressant drug Paxil sliced about a dozen six-inch-long cuts into his arm over a period of several days. Another was hospitalized after threatening to kill herself.

Neither was classified by a research team as suicidal..”

Social media comments on sites such as twitter and Facebook, containing articles about the current Paxil (Seroxat) study 329 restoration story, are utterly rife with comments detailing stories of suicides, self harm, and horrible side effects such as aggression/out of character behavior etc from Seroxat. This is but a small example of literally thousands of comments on social media at the moment about this Seroxat story. Of course GSK will just say that these patient experiences on Seroxat are merely ‘anecdotal’…

GSK will never admit that Paxil actually causes these extraordinary paxil related events in these ordinary people’s lives

However, considering that GSK’s own Seroxat studies are crock full of fraud and bias, I think patient voices and experiences of Seroxat discussed on social media, are probably much more weighted in truth and sincerity than GSK will ever be…

Very Interesting Debate Between Author Will Self, Psychiatrist Simon Wessely And Others About Mental Illness And Psychiatric Drugs…

 Will Self (to Simon Wessely) :

“.. Let’s drag up the horses head .. these are the guys who hand out the pills…


” One of your colleagues… prescribed me Seroxat and I attempted suicide.. when I went back to see the psychiatrist he prescribed me two other drugs in addition to the Seroxat – I’ll give you some other drugs just to even it out- I thought enough is enough”…


“I haven’t taken another of these drugs ever since and I am actually in quite good mental health”….

(53 Mins into debate).

Psychiatrists and the pharma industry are to blame for the current ‘epidemic’ of mental disorders


Drug pushers. We tend to associate them with the bleak underworld of criminality. But some would argue that there’s another class of drug pushers, just as unscrupulous, who work in the highly respectable fields of psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry. And they deserve the same moral scrutiny that we apply to the drug pedlar on the street corner. Within the medical profession labels are increasingly being attached to everyday conditions previously thought to be beyond the remit of medical help.  So sadness is rebranded as depression, shyness as social phobia, childhood naughtiness as hyperactivity or ADHD. And Big Pharma is only too happy to come up with profitable new drugs to treat these ‘disorders’, drugs which the psychiatrists and GPs then willingly prescribe, richly rewarded by the pharma companies for doing so. In the last decade the use of antidepressants in the UK has doubled and in 2012 50 million prescriptions had been written for them. It’s a similar story for hyperactivity: the use of Ritalin has tripled with 800,000 prescriptions written by 2012.

Marlon Wayans: Antidepressents, Not Depression, May Have Caused Robin Williams’ Suicide

Marlon Wayans: Antidepressents, Not Depression, May Have Caused Robin Williams’ Suicide

by Antoinette Bueno       8:05 AM PDT, August 14, 2014

According to fellow comedian Marlon Wayans, it may not have been depression that led to Robin Williams’ tragic suicide Monday, but rather, the antidepressants he may have been taking.

“I think there’s something in these medicines that people are taking for depression that’s making them depressed and making them commit suicide,” Wayans candidly said in an interview with Fusion Live. “I swear, I don’t think it’s depression. I think it’s chemical.

There’s some kind of antidepressant drug that they’re taking that’s causing them to have visions and making them kill themselves. There’s drugs out there — if you take it, and if you’re of certain descent — it will make you a little crazy. I just feel like, it’s chemical.”

“I don’t think it’s just him going, ‘Hey, I’m going to slit my wrist and choke myself,'” he added. “I mean, I just think there’s something else that’s in there. … I mean, he was such a joyful dude.”

According to Williams’ rep, the actor had been battling “severe depression as of late.” He was found on August 11, 2014 in his bedroom with a belt around his neck, with cuts on the inside of his left wrist, by his personal assistant.

In the new interview, Wayans, 42, went on to express his admiration for the legendary actor.

“Robin was a great dramatic actor as well as a comedian,” the White Chicks actor said. “Great with improv, incredible at character, great at physicalization. The man lacked nothing.”

“It’s a heartbreak man. The world lost a smile.”

The Legitimization of Depression (Great Lecture)

This is a great lecture  by philosopher and psychiatrist, Dr Neel Burton. It’s great to see some in the mental health profession actually understand the condition that they treat. Depression is a legitimate human condition which can be understood with compassion and insight – chemical treatments are merely band-aids for deep emotional wounds.
