Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com.
Joan Mathews Larson, PhD hates benzodiazepines and antipsychotic drugs the most.
Dr. Larson notes...
The group of drugs that I abhor the most…
Are [really] the benzodiazepines [anti-anxiety drugs like Alprazolam (Xanax)], but I don't talk about those.
“We won't even treat people who are bent on benzodiazepines for 20 years and who are 60 years old [because] you cannot get those people off [their drugs]…
“You can get them off [those drugs], but they're crazy and they want to sue you, so don't do that.
This group of antipsychotics, Olanzapine (Zyprexa), Quetiapine (Seroquel), Risperidone (Risperdal)…
These drugs are freely given for sleep in other programs.
A study was published in 2006 in JAMA [Journal of the American Medical Association] on these three drugs.
The subjects were elderly people [in nursing homes], and over half of them, 54%, were dead within 12 days of starting this study.
These drugs can cause nerve damage, weight gain, pounding heart, temporary paralysis.
These drugs are not needed to sleep.
There are much better ways to sleep.
This was noted by Joan Mathews Larson, PhD in a speech she gave in September 2007.
For 30 years, Joan Mathews Larson, PhD has been treating addiction, anxiety and depression with natural supplements in order to correct the underlying biochemical problems which cause these conditions.
