Psychiatric drugs sales generate $80 billion per year with Big Pharma spending $4.7 billion per year on TV and print ads, and $1 billion per year on internet advertising.
As a result the number of people worldwide taking psychiatric drugs has skyrocketed to 100 million (20 million of them children) with documented side effects of worsening depression, mania, psychosis, violence, suicidal and homicidal ideation, birth defects, diabetes, heart attack, stroke and sudden death – to name but a few.
International drug regulatory warnings have increased by 400% in the last 10 years, yet the general public has nowhere to go to find this information online in an easy to search, concise format.
CCHR International, the world’s leading mental health watchdog, has created a free public search engine featuring:
- 160 psychiatric drug warnings from international drug regulatory agencies.
- 150 drug studies from international medical journals.
- 194,558 adverse reaction reports on psychiatric drugs filed with the FDA between 2004-2008 from doctors, pharmacists, other health care providers, consumers and lawyers.
People can search international drug regulatory warnings, or studies, or both. They can search by the brand name of a drug (such as Prozac, Zoloft, Ritalin, Seroquel) or by drug class (such as antipsychotic, stimulant, antidepressant) or by type of side effect or by country issuing the study/warning. All information is summarized and easy to read.
CCHR International has also decrypted the FDA’s Adverse Drug Reaction reports which include psychiatric drug side effects reported to the FDAs Medwatch program. This lists who reported the side effect (Doctor, Pharmacist etc) the side effect of the drug and also the age range.
Any medical term that appears in the search results can be defined simply by double clicking the word, and a small bubble will appear defining the word.
No other mental health watchdog or government agency is offering this service to the public. This is the world’s only searchable online psychiatric drug database containing all international studies, warnings and FDA adverse reaction reports on psychiatric drugs in existence.
