MGH Bipolar Drug Studies Recruit Pregnant Women Via Craig’s List

This tops the perinatal drugging recruitment of the internet blog trollers over at Postpartum Progress, who attack blogs of people they deem via remote blog reading to have depression or anxiety. This is beyond sick – but then what do you expect? Break out the press releases! 

Let’s go call Rachel at the number below to tell her what we think of her study and efforts.

Are you an expectant mother? Do you have questions about bipolar
disorder and antidepressants or mood-stabilizers during pregnancy? The
Center for Women’s Mental Health at Massachusetts General Hospital is
conducting a research study on Bipolar Disorder in pregnancy. If you
are pregnant and diagnosed with bipolar disorder (or manic depression)
you may be eligible for this research study. Participants meet with
research coordinators and psychiatrists who specialize in bipolar
illness during pregnancy. For more information contact Rachel at (617) 726-2912.

Advertising on CRAIGSLIST?? ? How low can they go? Maybe they could
stand on street corners begging for change and then approach pregnant
women’s cars in parking lots outside OB offices and pour drugs through
the window expecting a payout when the moms come out of the office.
 
I included their funding from Eli Lilly in one of my articles…
they had a petition going online through the DBSA, and several
“studies” claiming no risk of heart defects and other birth defects
with pregnancy exposure, no risk for nursing babies, etc.

The pharmacaust is so big, it boggles the mind.
Big Pharma bribed the CDC to encourage drugging pregnant mothers.

“Overall, our results are generally reassuring with respect to the use
of antidepressants during pregnancy,” said Jennita Reefhuis, a CDC
http://www.cdc. gov/Features/ MedicationUse/

Fortunately, Dr. Peter Breggin is exposing the truth here.

“Her study had funding from two pharmaceutical companies, including
GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturer of Paxil (Seward, 2007), one of the
most implicated antidepressants in regard to birth defects
http://breggin. com/index. php?option= com_wrapper& Itemid=74

Hopefully members of this group will forward the truth to the
newspapers, craigslist (copy and paste Breggin’s article in the body),
and the congress. (hopefully they might read it)

CPS Abusers Accuse Mother of Munchausen For Seeking Proper Medical Care for Lyme Disease

1000 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO SAVE A CHILD!

http://www.letssavemarc.org/YouCanHelp.htm

The eyes of the nation are on San Antonio, Texas. An influential opposition has, with malicious intent, lined up to make the following a benchmark case against right to treatment choice where multiple protocols exist. A loss will be devastating not only to this family, but also to the future of medical care access to everyone suffering from a disputed medical condition and especially to those, present or future, suffering with Lyme disease.

Marc, a nine-year-old Autistic child with confirmed Lyme disease, and his mom are under attack by San Antonio Child Protective Services (CPS) because the mom sought competent medical treatment for Marc. When she contacted us for help, she pleaded, “Please help me to save my son – he is dying!” In fact, without knowledgeable medical care, he was losing his vision and had already lost 30 pounds.

Uninformed physicians supporting the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) position on Lyme disease instigated the report to an equally uninformed CPS

CPS has interfered with the legal medical care of this special needs child without any due diligence. Their first intervention was an invasive confrontation indicating no desire to understand or resolve conflicting and debatable medical opinion widely known to be suspect [Findings by Connecticut Attorney General Blumenthal, Reported May 1, 2008].

The child is now subject to removal to institutional care with an equal lack of understanding and skill and Marc’s mom is being pursued for criminal charges. Texas CPS, the foster care system, and contracted physician services have a documented history of questionable actions and deadly results [Ramshaw, E., Dallas Morning News, August 17, 2008].

CPS and the San Antonio district have been in the spotlight for a number of missteps, the most recent being their mishandling of the abusive FLDS polygamist group situation in West Texas. San Antonio CPS needs to regain credibility. The local County District Attorney needs to recover from a series of strong criticisms in preparation for a 2010 reelection campaign. Such self-promotion of authority makes their prosecution of this matter highly questionable. The protectors from child abuse have become the abusers.

1000 people making a gift of $10 or more to this cause can provide the support and legal assistance to defend this egregious insult to the right of all parents to choose medical care for their children.

Please visit http://www.letssavemarc.org for more information and to see how you can help. This effort is sponsored by Child Protection and Safety (CPAS, http://www.childprotectionandsafety.org), a Nonprofit Association dedicated to providing resources to children and their families placed in duress and legal jeopardy by authorities interfering with proper medical care. CPAS is directed by a Board of patients & patient advocates known for their work in their own states and nationally.

Only $10 to thwart this attack -

SAVE A CHILD’S LIFE – and ultimately, OUR OWN RIGHTS.

Anti-Preemption Petition

http://www.ahrp.org and http://ahrp.blogspot.com

FYI and ACTION
The US Supreme Court is asked to rule on whether drug manufacturers–who are in possession of the most comprehensive data about their products’ safety–can be held liable if the company fails to disclose a drug’s hazardous effects–whether or not the FDA, with its limited access to safety information–required the company to issue such warnings.

The issue before the court is whether FDA’s approval of a drug and its label at the time of approval preempts the manufacturer’s duty to warn about drug hazards.

If drug safety disclosure requirements were to be limited by FDA’s imperfect drug safety determinations, physicians’ access to drug safety information will be severely limited–thereby affecting physicians’ ability to determine the risks and benefits of drugs they prescribe. Hence, the ruling could affect the practice of medicine.

The ruling will also determine whether consumers’ legal right to seek just compensation from a pharmaceutical company that fails to warn physicians and the public about serious risk of harm caused by its marketed FDA-approved prescription drug. The case, Levine v. Wyeth, focuses on manufacturers’ legal responsibility under state consumer safety laws, to warn physicians and the public about emergent serious adverse drug effects.

You have a chance to register your opinion–Sign the Anti-Preemption Petition.
http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/fdapreemptionbadmedicine/index.html

The initiative comes from a non-political, grass roots, free-standing group of health-care professionals, patient advocates, academics, and the like, who have initiated this entirely independently. Among them, are very committed conservative Republicans, liberal Democrats, and everything in between.

I’m told that industry supporters “behind the scenes” are very much with us.

Underscoring their independence and non-anti-pharma stance, is the disclosure by (at least) one of the group:

“I am not anti-pharma; not even close. I have significant investments in device and drug companies. Being against FDA preemption is, from my perspective, one way to try to protect those investments – and to protect legal rights and public health as well.”

Anti-Preemption Petition.

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/fdapreemptionbadmedicine/index.html

We, the undersigned, petition Congress to guarantee the right to a day in court if a person is harmed or killed by an FDA-approved product. Specifically, we stand against the policy of FDA preemption.

What is FDA preemption? The Food and Drug Administration, whose responsibility it is to safeguard the public, is attempting to take away the right of American citizens to hold a manufacturer accountable for damages caused by an FDA-approved medication or medical device.

Such preemption reduces industry accountability, even while it endangers our civil rights and public health.

>From The New England Journal of Medicine,July 3, 2008:

“Previous administrations and the FDA considered tort litigation to be an important part of an overall regulatory framework for drugs and devices; product-liability litigation by consumers was believed to complement the FDA’s regulatory actions and enhance patient safety. …
In stripping patients of their right to seek redress through due process of law, preemption of common-law tort actions is not only unjust but will also result in the reduced safety of drugs and medical devices for the American people.”

Teen Plans Columbine Copycat Massacre After Use of Bipolar Meds

Paragraph 7 reads:  “Doelitsch said that he had been depressed and that his mother had taken him off his bipolar medication because she was afraid he would suffer from other health problems later. The teen is back on the medication and is seeing a psychiatrist.”

The danger of withdrawal from antidepressants and antipsychotics is well documented.  The brain tries to compensate for the blockage of the serotonin and dopamine receptors by growing additional receptors for these neurotransmitters.  When the medications are discontinued, these additional receptors contribute to an ‘overload’ of serotonin and dopamine flooding the receptor. This is known as “supersensitivity psychosis” & antidepressant  discontinuation syndrome .  An explanation for both antidepressant withdrawal and antipsychotic Supersensitivity Psychosis caused by withdrawal can be found here.

“Teen Accused Of Plotting School Attack Blames Threats On Depression 
Allen Doelitsch Planned Attack On Boerne Champion High School, Police Say

POSTED: 7:53 am CDT August 28, 2008
UPDATED: 8:24 am CDT August 28, 2008

BOERNE, Texas — An 18-year-old Boerne man charged in plotting an attack at Champion High School blamed depression, being off his medication and a television program for the events that led to his arrest this week.

During a jailhouse interview Wednesday with KSAT 12 News, Allen Doelitsch admitted asking a 14-year-old friend to join him in a “Columbine-style” attack at Boerne’s newest high school on Monday.

But Doelitsch said he never would have following through on the threat. 

“It’s just what I thought about doing at the time,” he said. “I don’t feel like doing it all the time. I never said anything about doing it. I just said I felt like it. I didn’t say I was going to.”

Doelitsch added that it would have been difficult to have carried out the threat because he doesn’t own any weapons.

“I don’t have any guns at my house,” he said. “I really don’t want to hurt other people. There’s no point. They didn’t do anything to me, so why would I do anything to them?”

Doelitsch said that he had been depressed and that his mother had taken him off his bipolar medication because she was afraid he would suffer from other health problems later. The teen is back on the medication and is seeing a psychiatrist.

The teen, who was charged with criminal solicitation of a minor to commit capital murder, also blamed his thoughts after watching television programs about the Columbine Massacre.

“I started watching it and getting into it,” Doelitsch said.

Doelitsch remained in the Kendall County Jail on a $500,000 bond.”
