Psychiatry frequently takes this position Breggin, MD Shortly after Prozac became the best-selling drug in the world in the early s, Toxic psychiatry proposed that there was little or no evidence for efficacy, but considerable evidence that the toxic psychiatry would worsen depression and cause severe behavioral abnormalities.

I attributed much of the problem to "compensatory changes" in neurotransmitters as the brain resists the drug effect.

Since then, in a series of books and articles, I've documented antidepressant-induced clinical worsening and some of its underlying physical causes. Now the idea has gained ground in the toxic psychiatry research community and has recently been named "tardive dysphoria.

A recent scientific study by El-Mallakh and his colleagues reviewed the antidepressant literature and concluded that any initial improvements are often followed by treatment resistance and worsening depression.

Because of the popularity surrounding the minor tranquilizers, we tend to think that they represent something very new and radically different among drugs; but I recall my medical school professor of psychopharmacology reminding us in that the sedative attributes of minor tranquilizers differ little from those of the barbiturates, such as phenobarbital Sedative-Hypnotics and Central Nervous System Depression All of the commonly used minor tranquilizers - with the possible exception of BuSpar - are central nervous system depressants very similar to alcohol and barbiturates in their clinical effects.

Along with alcohol toxic psychiatry barbiturates, they are classified as sedative-hypnotics, meaning toxic psychiatry they produce relaxation sedation at lower doses and sleep hypnosis and eventually coma at higher ones. It is important to grasp the principle that minor tranquilizers are central nervous system depressants - and, in particular, sedative-hypnotics - because this classification removes the mystery surrounding these "tranquilizers.

The basic clinical effect on the mind cannot be distinguished from alcohol or barbiturates. It should be emphasized again that all minor tranquilizers combine with each other or with other central nervous system depressants - such as barbiturates, antidepressants, neuroleptics, lithium, and alcohol toxic psychiatry with a potentially fatal result.
