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.

Drugs are never going to leave our society and there has never been a society free from drugs. Therefore, it only makes sense to provide real education free from propaganda. TDC doesn't advocate drug use. Rather, we operate with the intention of reducing the harm some substances can bring. Feel free to ask questions!
It’s taken a long time for me to feel like myself, even a little bit, after discontinuing a psych drug cocktail. It’s happening slowly, but I’m getting there. This is quick little unscripted video that will hopefully give you a little inspiration as you make your way through the process of discontinuing psychiatric drugs. If you can keep going, no matter how far away from yourself you may feel, you’ll get closer and closer in time to who you were—and are—meant to be. Thanks for watching! Note: I still have limited mental stamina and am a bit disorganized in my thinking (not in a schizophrenic kind of way, but in a brain-that’s-still-recovering kind of way) so I apologize for the video being a little rambly and not as on-point as it could be. I’ll get better. Thanks again for watching. Hang in there. Disclaimer: any advice given on this channel is not a substitute for medical advice. Please consult with a licensed medical professional before coming off psych drugs. Never—EVER—discontinue your medication cold turkey. It's too dangerous. Please, be safe.

Where is it found Precursor, L-DOPA is synthesized in brain and kidneys Dopamine functions in several parts of the peripheral nervous system In blood vessels, it inhibits norepinephrine release and acts as a vasodilator (relaxation) In the pancreas, it reduces insulin production In the digestive system, it reduces gastrointestinal motility and protects intestinal mucosa In the immune system, it reduces lymphocyte activity. Symptoms of excess & insufficiency... Most antipsychotic drugs are dopamine antagonists Dopamine antagonist drugs are also some of the most effective anti-nausea agents Changes in dopamine levels may also cause age-related changes in cognitive flexibility. Symptoms of excess & insufficiency Insufficient dopamine... Nutritional building blocks Eating a diet high in magnesium and tyrosine rich foods will ensure you’ve got the basic building blocks needed for dopamine production. Medications Most common dopamine antagonists (positive symptoms) Risperdone, Haldol, Zyprexa Metoclopramide (Reglan) is an antiemetic and antipsychotic Dopamine Hypothesis Patients with schizophrenia do not typically show measurably increased levels of brain dopamine activity Other dissociative drugs, notably ketamine and phencyclidine that act on glutamate NMDA receptors (and not on dopamine receptors) can produce psychotic symptoms. Those drugs that do reduce dopamine activity are a very imperfect treatment for schizophrenia: they only reduce a subset of symptoms, while producing severe short-term and long-term side effects GABA Mechanism of action/purpose Anti-anxiety, Anti-convulsant GABA is made from glutamate GABA functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter – Glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter GABA does the opposite and tells the adjoining cells not to “fire” Where they are found Close to 40% of the synapses in the human brain work with GABA and therefore have GABA receptors. Medications Drugs that act as allosteric modulators of GABA receptors (known as GABA analogues or GABAergic drugs) or increase the available amount of GABA typically have relaxing, anti-anxiety, and anti-convulsive effect Gabapentin (neurontin) is a GABA analogue used to treat epilepsy and neurotic pain. Benzodiazepines and Barbiturates including GHB, Valium, Xanax Serotonin Mechanism of action/purpose Helps regulate Mood Sleep patterns Appetite Pain Serotonin Serotonin Serotonin Insufficiency Depression Anxiety Pain sensitivity Acetylcholine Their mechanism of action/purpose In lower amounts, ACh can act like a stimulant by releasing norepinephrine (NE) and dopamine (DA). Memory Motivation Higher-order thought processes Sexual desire and activity Sleep Acetylcholine Symptoms of excess Depression (all symptoms) Nightmares Mental Fatigue Anxiety Inverse relationship between serotonin and acetylcholine Insufficiency Alzheimers/dementia Parkinsons Impaired cognition, attention, and arousal Cholinergic and GABAergic pathways are intimately connected in the hippocampus and basal forebrain complex. It is not always about increasing a neurotransmitter. Sometimes you need to decrease it. Human brains try to maintain homeostasis and too much or too little can be bad A balanced diet will provide the brain the necessary nutrients in synergystic combinations

Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ Fatnews.com http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews I am going to read a section from this wonderful book, Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare by Prof. Peter Gøtzsche, MD. The section is bout drug-induced side effects in the elderly. The reason that I am telling this story is that the SAME THING happened to my mother. My mother suffered from drug-induced side effects for 40 years, and tragically for the last 3.5 years of her life, and yet my mother's doctors were blind to this. Prof Gøtzsche says: We know very little about polypharmacy Most patients are in treatment with several drugs, particularly elderly patients. A Swedish study of 762 people living in nursing homes found that 67% were prescribed 10 or more drugs. One-third were in treatment with three or more psychoactive drugs; around half received antidepressants or tranquillisers; and anticholinergic drugs were used in one-fifth. All these drugs may create cognitive impairment, confusion and falls, which carry a considerable mortality among the elderly. The symptoms are often misinterpreted by the patients and their carers as signs of old age or impending disease, e.g. dementia or Parkinson's, but when doctors stop the medicines, many of the patients apparently become many years younger... and become active again. My most important contribution to internal medicine was to stop drugs in newly admitted patients, only to realise that, quite often, the patients arrived doped with the same drugs by their general practitioner next time they were admitted. We know very little about what happens when patients take many drugs... A randomised trial showed that drug reduction [reducing the number of drugs that a person is taking] lowered both mortality and admission to hospital a subsequent study in 70 patients where number of drugs was reduced from 7.7 to 4.4 per patient showed that 88% reported global improvement in health and most had improvement in cognitive functions. Here is a typical story, apart from the fact that few elderly people are that lucky: When my father was 88, he was hospitalised for dizziness, which occurred after his medication was increased. In the hospital, he was given more medication which made him confused, frightened, and incoherent. Then his doctor transferred him to a nursing home, where he was dirty, crying, begging people to hold his hand, and listed as DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) -- and given still more medication. I convinced the doctor at the nursing home to discontinue all medication, and I hired a private nurse to give my father an organic diet -- rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, and seeds. In 3 days, my father made such a miraculous recovery that the nurses on the ward didn't recognise him. When I called to speak to my father, he was back to his old self, and told me that he was bored and looking for a card game. My father was discharged the next day, and died several years later, while relaxing peacefully at home. The SAME THING happened to my mother! My mother suffered from drug-induced side effects for 40 years. My mother suffered tragically from drug-induced side effects for the last 3.5 years of her life. I watched this happen to my mother for the last 17 years of her life. I watched my mother spiral downhill for the last 3.5 years of her life as doctors gave her more and more drugs which only caused my mother to get worse and worse and worse. Literally EVERY problem my mother had over the last 17 years of her life was due to a drug-induced side effect. I can tell you every problem that my mother had and every drug that caused this for the last 17 years of her life. ...and yet my mother's doctors were completely and total BLIND to this! I told my parents this for 17 years... and I SCREAMED it for the last 3.5 years of my parents' life but I could NOT convince my parents of this because my mother's doctors were saying THE EXACT OPPOSITE! My mother's doctors told my parents that if they could just find the right drugs or find the right combination of drugs or find the right dose of drugs, that they could solve my mother's problems. But these psychiatric drugs had failed my mother for 40 years! My mother saw at least 17 doctors over the last 17 years of her life, and every one on them were completely and totally blind to the fact that my mother was suffering from drug-induced side effects. It is a systemic problem with doctors — that doctors are BLIND to drug-induced side effects. It is not my intention to insult doctors by saying this, but I must tell the truth about this in order to try and save anyone I can from the same suffering that my mother went through for so many years. I've learned 9 things about doctors over the past 20 years. The first thing I learned is that doctors are blind to drug-induced side effects.

This video provides the facts about psychotropic drugs and the huge profits they create for the pharmaceutical industry. These drugs are not safe and have not been on the market long enough to provide sufficient long term studies regarding their effects. Over half of the people that commit suicide in the United States are prescribed to psychotropic drugs.
