CCHR created the world’s only online searchable psychiatric drug side effects database comprising ALL international drug regulatory warnings, studies and more than 470,000 side effects reported to the US FDA by doctors, pharmacists and consumers.

Now, using this information, CCHR has created executive summaries on specific classes of drugs (Antidepressants, ADHD drugs, Anti-Anxiety and Antipsychotics) and individual drugs such as Prozac, Risperdal, Xanax, Ritalin and many more to come.
