I noticed about 5 days after the Parkland HS school shooting there was a propaganda story on yahoo news saying "Anti Depressants Really Do Work!" You ever notice the commercials for drugs that say this drug "may" help with this or it is "believed" that this happens? They cant say it "does" work or they "know" what the cause is because that would be a LIE.
this month I looked everywhere on YouTube for her old video with a doctor called SOMA STATE .
... I was telling a number of people to look for it with reference to the horrors of Lexapro which destroyed my memory.
... and it has taken me YEARS to get back close to normal.
...I should have sued them in a class action lawsuit when I had the chance ...but I am very glad I found her videos today
I was a medical representative for Ciba giegy now Novartiis for 18.years in the UK 30 years ago
Wjsy she's sayinh true. Wr dprny a lot og money tskinh doctors out to lunch and on conferences sometimes abroad this is now banned. Some information was false some exaggerated claims some true as a rep you didn't know the difference. We used thid special syyled ptogilong over 30 uesrd ago. Somr drugs were vetu effective such as rimactazid fot tuberculosis and catbamazapine for manic depression and someone antihypettensive drugs. Uncontrolled hypertension used to be a terrible killer. Some drugs didn't work such as transiderm nitro fot angina but you dont know the truth of the data you are presenting. Some drugs are very valuable try having an operation without anaesthetic . Smsllpox has been eliminated wotld wide thanks .to vaccination and.many other conditions controlled. I let the industry to join a biofeedback and cognitive behaviour and cognitive behaviour company
Although interesting this didn't work at all. Be very wary of so called alternative medicine they have their agendas as well most of it is a con. A transplanted heart will not be prevented from being rejected by homeopathy cancer will not be cured by changing your diet pharmaceutical companies while nor perfect have given us great advances and are the way forward together with other scientific advances
God bless you. You are doing the right thing. Benzodiazepines almost killed me and my mom. They gave us both suicidal thoughts. Hers occurred 29 years ago and mine 4 years ago. The doctors kept insisting the drugs weren't doing that. When I stopped the benzos ALL my suicidal thoughts and attempts stopped and so did my mom's. It was the meds and only the meds doing that to us. I admire you so much for changing careers and getting the truth out. You are so right!
Lynne Heal dont be so pessimistic
Advances are being made every year by good honest scientists
Not so long ago smallpox was an agonising killer for many people
With worldwide vaccination it no longer exists this will be the case eventually for all diseases given time and proper funding of medical research and scientific advances
Imagine taking these toxic drugs EVERY DAY for 20 years, like me. The permanent damage done to my brain and liver has ruined every aspect of my life. It has left me with a damaged brain and has GIVEN me many of the worst nightmarish symptoms that many antipsychotics are supposed to relieve. Gwen is absolutely telling the truth. I want to be a spokesperson and advocate against the practices of psychiatry involving mandatory drug therapy. It does more harm than good when taken long-term. PLEASE BE AWARE WHEN A PSYCHIATRIST TELLS YOU THAT YOU NEED TO TAKE DRUGS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
** Please feel free to contact me for a real-life experience with many doctors, many diagnosis and many drugs, for many years.
Detoxing does not repair neurological, endocrine damage. The drugs change neurotransmitters - it takes time for them to change them back. The drug is long gone, but the neurotransmitters take longer. Additionally, detoxing is not safe for withdrawal, as it can throw you back into symptoms, and be destabilising. It's essential to be stable when coming off psych drugs.
if you need some help I can help you if your memory has been destroyed by those effers..
... that damn Lexapro left me with such severe memory loss that I was dysfunctional damn near.
... there are many different natural treatments and cures .
...one that doesn't cost anything :
just go to SUPER BRAIN YOGA here on YouTube ....you want the one that is 4 minutes 11 seconds long...
.....It is actually a segment from a newscast where they interview people :
a neurologist, teachers curing people of everything from early Alzheimer's to ADD hyperactive to autism...
... any of your neurological problems... you're not going to twist yourself in a pretzel.
basically you're doing squats but you must follow to the letter how they do this.
the name of the game is reps.
I hope you are able to bend at the knees... try to do 10 or 20 at a time and then try to get to the point where you can do several sets of these a day.
... 2 or 3 sets a day have allowed me within usually two or three ,four days to be a lot smarter and quicker and my memory is better .
. I also recommend flaxseed oil.
... you want to look into the benefits of PQQ...a lot of it here on YouTube..
.. I have not yet tried it ..you absolutely must see the video that Joe Rogan Experience has of DR. Rhonda Patrick...
.... she talks about SULPHURAPHANE.. probably the MOST POWERFUL BRAIN BOOSTER and anti Alzheimer's thing out there.
.... she shows you how easy it is to grow it right in some jars in your kitchen... it takes 3 to 4 days ...
...you just have to buy broccoli seeds ...she'll show you how to do BROCCOLI SPROUTS
......then I want you to look for something in a Indian Pakistani Grocers called HARITAKI..often you cannot find it alone and have to buy it in something called TRIPHALA..
...triphala has the HARITAKI in it.
but according to the ancient VEDICS.. the ancient Hindus who have had Advanced knowledge going back closer to 12,000 years they called HARITAKI the mother of all herbs .
....it's another powerful one for the brain .
try goji berries... videos on them some places will gouge you and charge a lot.
... the cheapest price I found is almost $10 a pound at WinCo Supermarkets.
. .. if I could think of anything else I'll add it because I do have other ones it's just that I have to go somewhere right now.
Now that I'm flat on my back I find out that extended release/abuse proof opiates should not be given to menapausal women who cannot do hormone replacement therapy. It cause adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism so thank you Comprehensive Pain Specislist for the fentanyl patch I begged you not to put me on...Integrity Pain for the Opana that helped me gain 30lbs in one month and AMG of Nashville for the OxyContin which caused a false negative---
+Tudor Renegade and WHY do you think there is such a resistance to coming out about this stuff. She is a rep, and NOT enough people blow whistles. You must be interested in scaring the puppeteers into hiding, which they do very well. its about getting people better not punishing people. punishment is old world anyway. the prison system is as broken as this is
Talk about sick!
There's 1k people who "liked" who are susceptible to this nonsensical information and they don't understand she is SELLING all because adverse effects she experienced.
This is an example of someone not able to ethnically make decisions for herself and then blame shift on to the brilliant individuals who create new drugs through passion, dedication, and determination.
What a way to thank the company who provided your financial life line for many years!
Great news, there's a cure for this and it's called the legal system. Hope she gets a taste of her own medicine and is forced to give back all they gave her.
She's not a whistle blower, simply an non appreciative deceptive and defaming individual.
Lastly, sure there are negative effects. If you have a city of one million people on a drug and only 1-100 are in a mental health clinic that is INCREDIBLE because the next step is to bring that number down and down, while paying hundreds of people like you and pouring 100 million to a billion in further research!
If she thought it could be done better, she should have done what they do better, that's the ethical choice.
Don't throw anyone under a bus!
People are disease striken every day, who fights for they're lives YOU?
I agree that there are people in the pharmaceutical industry that are passionate and not completely driven by the money. However personally it is hard for me to disregard all of the information she provided. I have heard from other people that the goal of the pharmaceutical industry is to make money bottom line. Regardless, I think in any profession there will be some actions that may be legal without necessarily being ethical. No matter what the issue is if we as people could rely more on the categorical imperative, the world would be a better place. This is rooting from the ideology of Immanuel Kant. Basically what the categorical imperative is is a binding set of ethics that is not dependent on the persons position. They are ethics recognized globally by sane, mentally stable people. In this case, one can not deny that if these pharmaceutical companies are manipulating there clients regardless of the health effects on the patients. It would be viewed that the actions they are taking are morally wrong. One can not completely disregard all of the information presented in this video because some things she said are true. Such as companies making side effects sound more mild than they are. She said instead of saying may cause problems of the central nervous system, they say may cause dizziness along with other symptoms that sound mild. We see this on commercials all the time with the many side effects listed. I have no doubt that the pharmaceutical drugs have saved lives, however it's no surprise that lives have been lost as a result of them. Many drugs I see on television have side effects that outweigh the benefit. Resulting in a drug that may do more harm overall than wellness. Many would say this has to do with the sales of the drug and less to do with the people taking them. This does not seem ethical.
YOUR EITHER A TOTAL SELLOUT ASSHOLE COLE OR A TOTAL FUCKING IDIOT! DO SOME RESEARCH YOU HIGHLY MISINFORMED MORON! SWITCH TO ALL NATURAL PLANTS, FOODS, HERBS, ETC. TO SEE A REAL DIFFERENCE IN ONES HEALTH!
+WHERES THESURF Sorry,Cole. When the American Diabetes Association stops telling diabetics to eat lots of "healthy" whole grains, which guarantees them a life of diabetes, Metformin, finger pricking and insulin, my attitude might change. But until they do, I truly believe that the drug companies (and the ADA, which is funded by the big drug companies) what to maintain your diabetes, not reverse it.
$100 billion a year squandered on diabetes and related maladies (like foot amputations).
There's no money in telling a pre-diabetic to eat no grains, no refined sugar and limited fruit.
Same with the American Heart Association. They get big bucks from the drug companies to recommend their statins, which are mostly useless in preventing heart disease.
The biggest Pharma companies have Pilgrims Society members on their boards---money tracing to the old British Chinese opium "trade." You can find many of them in Who's Who in America, but only rarely will "Pilgrims Society" or "The Pilgrims" or "Pilgrims NYC" or "Pilgrims London" appear in their info. Some rosters have leaked out however but none in 35 years.
Ms Gwen Olsen, it is not right to make a sweeping generalization. If you worked for an unethical drug company and know other such companies, the best thing you can do is to expose this and that particular drug company. You know the efficacy and safety profile of the drugs you detailed and the right thing to do is to present the good and the bad sides in equal proportion - that is what real detailing is all about. You have been manipulated by your former company and allowed yourself to be manipulated for 15 years, well that is very unfortunate, but don't put the blame on each and every drug company please.
Oh but what about the tobacco/cigarette industry or the alcohol industry or even the food industry for that matter? Or every other industry that pollutes the planet or destroys the ecosystem? Just asking...
You are right., pharma is big business... and so are other industries, and pharma pales in comparison to many others. Pharma sales and marketing is called Ethical Marketing for a good reason. Other big businesses are far worse when it comes to unethical business practices. Thing is, people who didn't spend a good number of years working in pharma can only comment on what they see and hear about the industry. Little knowledge is dangerous.
+whodidit99 I'm sure you've made other mistakes in life. Just be glad for her and everyone else that she's not "whoring" for "Big Pharma" anymore and that she's educating people about the lies. Some people just can't be pleased.
There are many who are whiter-than-white and think that they would have woken up to what these fraudsters were doing in Big Pharma if they had been in it! sometimes the good of people may take a long time to show through but it did with Gwen Olsen and she is being criticized in the way she is by those who are most probably not without dirty hands but need the position in elevating themselves! I would rather talk with her than many of those with their facades here.
I think a lot of these entities in Big Pharma companies and CEOs for example the manufacturers of Lexapro need to not only be sued with much bigger fines than they've already been sued for,
.... but they need to go to JAIL..I think once they start going to JAIL the industry will definitely change
Unfortunately doctors need the drug companies to promote research and new medications. This highlights the need for doctors to use their skills of critical appraisal and ask a few poignant questions, if the rep can not answer then show them the door, these questions include not only the number needed to treat but the number needed to harm, reject relative risks and ask for absolutes where possible. Always ask if they have compared their drug to a gold std or placebo. Finally always ask reps what are the negatives or drawbacks of the medicine.
I am a Combat Veteran, of which suffers from PTSD, very bad effects and symptoms, I might add, and, have been prescribed Zoloft.
After seeing your videos, I am skeptical of the drug, but find the drug to help me deal with the nightmares I have succumbed to since returning, I hate going to bed for fear of the terrible dreams that I know I am about to have, and this drug, has helped.
Now, I am afraid of what is going to happen to me in the future, will I become dependent, I hear what you're saying and it makes me afraid, please, make more videos explaining what a person such as a Combat Soldier should do, and "Thank You" sincerely for your input, I and I'm sure many of us do.
The public trust is under threat and no trust this Harper government. I never thought I live to see a mad man running Canada! Thank for sharing your video! He be gone next election! :-)
"Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.'
I like what she has to say, and hope more people campaign for limiting the use of drugs inappropriately. But some of the claims she makes about drugs - while quite possibly true, needs to be backed up by citing research and studies. Otherwise it's just opinion and the drug companies will have the option to discredit here because they supposedly have research proving the efficacy of their meds.
I can never forgive this fucking bitch for what she let her self do for 15 years. From the CEO's to the Dr.'s to the, reps they all have the power of self determination and choose not to do the right thing until there is a trail of suffering left in the wake of their greed. I was put on 20 pills of Haldol every day from the ages of 7-14 and Im still messed up from it 4 years after being off that shit. I hope she feels no personal satisfaction when she makes these videos. She is an adult and allowed her self to drug up kids for 15 years and once she gets rich off of it she has a change of heart? Fuck off!
Gwen is making up for the damage done. There are many in this, but she has the guts to do something about it.How many more can there be in the research and other sections! Gwen is one in a few thousand! Take a look at Dr John Virapen who has also broken away from Eli Lilly! Bair Hemrich has broken away from GSK. Yet the CEO of Eli Lilly has gone home with $11.3 million in 2013 and the spillage is not over yet as this death industry has to break into pieces!
Misinformed? Please elaborate? Or are you just saying that? What am I misinformed about? And no I do not take any drugs at all, because I do not need them. How about you respond with some actual facts instead of just calling me names.
A demanding career? She was nothing more then a glorified drug pusher. Do you think the mexican cartel is helping mankind? because Big Parma is just the Corporate version of the Zeta. It dose not take 15 years to come to the realization that the industry is deeply corrupt and wholly cursive. She knew from the first time she bribed a neurologist to prescribe patients the drug she was selling what the industry really is. But she decided to continue doing what she did for over a decade. And only after making a fortune did she quit . You think she is giving an effort to make it right? She makes videos on youtube. I don't see her lobbying against it or doing anything substantive to fight back for that matter. You have no idea of the full extent of what she partook in. I was prescribed 20 pills of Haldol a day for seven years of my life from 7-14 because my former doctor said I had tretts syndrome even though my ticks were just a manifestation of childhood stress and I was not mature enough to deal with it in a more constructive/direct way. He only prescribed it because he was and still is on the companies pay roll. "Lets get real, huh?"
A salesperson that accents the positives and downplays the negatives. Wow. You live and learn. Next she is going to say politicians are two faced. "I spent years manipulating people into using dangerous drugs. Now I'm selling books about the years I spent talking people into dangerous drugs."
Those of us who have researched this issue thoroughly know only too well that we need insiders like this lady to help us really get the low down on the strategies behind these dangerous claims made in the cause of profit. and if you grudge her making money from her books then I suggest YOU do it (for free of course)
Doc must of had a fifteen year Mortgage. Than she grew a conscience. "Conscience: "The inner sense of what is right or wrong in one's conduct or motives, impelling one toward the right action:" Right and wrong seams to always take a backseat to greed.
I still find the old adage of Follow the Money Trail works wonders in clarifying
This is particular true with medicine (as well as with politicians)
This trail can be justified, too, but I want to know it
Drugs are expensive to develop, I get it, and I want more
However, when does this Money Trail become filthy lucre is the issue, and how drugs are sold in this country is too often filthy lucre?
I have worked in the healthcare profession for 20 years. 15 of those years has been in psychiatric care. I worked with adolescents too that was a trip in its self. I have seen more kids with stupid self absorbed parents start their kids out as young as 4 years old on behavioral care units with abilify, geodon ectra. My best advice is to fire your damn doctor. Everything she is saying is true!
It took her awhile to realize what was going on, and then a bit longer to be overwhelmed by the truth. I was a Psych Nurse and totally understand this phenomenon. Then she of course, had to find another job right? But she did do the right thing and wrote a book about it, and make these videos. Good for her, another whistle blower. Any whistle blower goes through this process of learning, realization, then moral obligation, and deciding to spill the beans.
During these so called clinical trials, if the subject DIED they would word it saying "the patient no longer showed symptoms of such n such" and the person they just murdered would become a statistic on the positive outcome of the drug.
For the same reason Dr Gupta told the world that cannabis didn't have any medical value.He trusted the DEA when they were lying to him.I like the very last thing he said on the show Weed.Cannabis extracts kill cancer cells and doesn't harm anything else in the body.You can almost say he was telling us that our organs don't have to be removed,but yet they are.The bad thing to about all this is that only a few no this and these few can't change a dam thing.
we all know the pharma reps were bribing every living healthcare creature that could sign a script or a PO. its called a collusive capitalism and it basically sucks. if it is not regulated, in the end it destroys everything including the people that buy the crap. it corrupts every institution and morality within society. Everything is for sale because there is a market for everything. hence country has evolved into the dump it is has so richly deserved. get out if you can
Well Pius Joseph, disclosure has ALWAYS been required of pharma reps when presenting to doctors. This is called "fair balance" meaning you show the positives and then the side effects. Also, all those cash incentives were eliminated quite a few years ago.
i don't believe sales reps manipulate doctors, i think doctors know very well of the drugs they prescribe are toxic and dangerous. patient after patient, year after year i'm sure the doctor knows he/she is harming their patients with toxic chemicals. the "oh the doctor didn't know" is an excuse. doctors know exactly what they do.
It's incredible/ Appalling! In Ireland psychiatrists fake people have hallucinations (in order to protect Irish organizations?)..they do not even want to see the proofs of the contrary!! Even in court people do not get accused by solely insinuations, proofs are needed! Instead in Ireland psychiatrists can invent people have Hallucinations and embark them for YEARS into "treatments" that lead to serious REAL problem to people...until tragic PHYSIOLOGICAL consequences!
Although it is nearly six years old, there is still a lot of information in this video. It's interesting how the marketing supersedes the best medical advice. There have been many injuries and deaths due to these practices, and a tremendous degree of culpability that must be shouldered by the pharmaceutical industry because of it.
I respect that you're providing this information to others, but I have to say that for it to take 15 years to realize that corporations and the government lie using statistics is almost sad. I'm not saying I've always known about it, but in my freshman Psycology class, which I took side by side with a Statistics (About media) class. I learned a lot about people that are really sad.
Hello, Please read! My Name is Kenya Starr Sibley and I'm from Chicago. I want you to receive a copy of my book titled "DOCTORS" The New Face of Drug Dealers. I'm also hoping to be helpful to you and your family and/or friends. I hope to eventually to talk in the public sector about why I wrote a book so controversial, and to get feedback from all of you whom have read my book. A voice other than mines is needed to address the prescription pill death related epidemic. Kenyacaic@gmail.com
Breaking CNS side effects down into its specific groups (e.g dizziness, nausea) does not constitute misinformation. I think it simply attempts to better explain what is being represented by a spike in a bar graph showing CNS side effects. This should not be twisted to mean that is "misinformation.It may have been done to minimize the concerns, and present the info more accurately - nothing wrong with that...the more specific, the better.
Thank you for shedding light for us and coming out with the TRUTH! Antidepressants are horrible! My name is Omar and I was depressed for a long time. I went through a lot of pain before I was finally convinced to get help. I got therapy, read books, changed my diet, and began to exercise. It took a lot of will and determination for me to overcome depression naturally. I am now making YT vids with the tips that worked for me. See my videos at DepressionHero.
Gwen Owen has to be considered a national treasure. I've learned more in the last hour than I have in years. Not that I didn't have a clew, I was just able to hide behind my delusions. She has compelled me to have a closer look at myself, the issues I have and the pills I take to mitigate them. We should all learn from her and take steps to better ourselves through awareness and education. We need also to share this enlightenment. From those you have inspired, thank you Gwen.
Shareholders, NOT patients wellness, is the only concern of Big Pharma.
If they're not constantly expanding revenue through the revolving door of sickcare management, they lose billions in market shares daily.
The constant pressure cooker to perform and meet expectations and demands of profit forecasters, makes for a very corrupt, shady and unscrupulous industry whose sole intent is to hype new drugs, lobby Washington DC, rush unsafe drugs to market by brushing deadly side-effects under the rug.
There's more wisdom in the old ways than in these pill pushing snake oil selling merchants of pharmaceutical death.
A friend of mine lives "Off The Grid," all 9 of her home-birthed babies have no birth/tax-slave certificates, no socialist security ID's and none of them got any vaccines.
Hands down, those kids ages 6 thru 17 are now the absolute image of perfect health, amazing teeth, perfect weight, height, energy, and intelligent!
And not once have they ever gotten sick, no flu or colds, NEVER.
What did you say? That makes no sense.
You have very poor grammar skills, I can't read your mind nor can I read broken English.
If you expect a response from anyone, you must clearly express your comments in a way that is easy to read, understandable and written in proper phonetic form.
I have a friend who told me that he was forced to take antidepressants and SSRIs since age 8. he begged to be taken off them. his parents would just say trust the doctors. . at the age of 20 he slowly tryed to get off them. his body went into shock his hair turned gray. another doctor perscribed him more drugs he went manic and crashed his car.
I know some one on pills, I'm pretty sure their Anti Depression but I'd like to ask for your advice. Is this good or dangerous?
Codapane Forte 500mg/30mg
Alphamox 500. Amoxycillin 500mg. Says each Capsule contains Amoxycillin Trihydrate equivalent to 500mg of Amoxycillin.
Anything I say will be forgotten in 5 minutes because I'm just a friend.
RICHARD JONES! I'll never forget that name. He was the last one I was sent to and stopped me from having to get on pills I didn't need. He's the reason I could RUB IT in my principals face.
I knew none of this Corruption back then, so now I'm a bit Outraged that I could of been a Victim of that crap. My mum and grand parents didn't know any better, I know it's not their fault but they almost screwed me. What is the world coming to when your own families Concern/Advice, can fuck you up?
WELL.. The last "Psycologist" whatever he was said I didn't have any of those things wrong with me, so I MADE SURE to rub that in my Principals face.
I had 2 decisions to make.
1. Accept the rubbish they were feeding me and ADMIT to having a mental problem, that...it turns out I didn't even have...that would of RUINED my life and minimised my chances for employment.
2. Fight the system and refuse, risking losing my future education, minimising my chances for employment. I got lucky.
Oh no stories not done yet.
In HIGH SCHOOL my mum and my grand parents thought LETS TRY AGAIN! They, along with 2 High Schools, tried to get me labelled with.... SOMETHING!
First it was Autism, then they moved to Aspergious Syndrome, "Yeah I can't spell it"
I absolutely refused to believe that I had something like that wrong with me and I'm lucky I did. My High School, "Mercy College" threatened me, that if I did not ADMIT to having one of those mental problems, I would be kicked out.
Damaged and/or killed. Enough said right? Hope no one actually tries to say this video is "LIES" or crap or whatever. Shut the fuck up. I was a victim of this shit. In Primary School, I was forced to take ADHD pills. I don't know what it was called, I was 6 and too young to have any say in the matter. OH it only lasted a week because that shit made me a LUNATIC! My mum BEGGED the doctor to take me off it. She shouldn't of let him give it to me in the first place.
Risperdal and Zoloft killed my 12 year old daughter seven years ago. Thank you for doing your video, There is so much corruption out there that it truly makes you sick. In memory of Kayla Kristine Weddle.
hahaha well said, i'm guessing those 70 people havn't had an issue with them to realise this i'd say, or those 70 people are doctors scoring free holidays and cars etc from the amount of prescriptions written to their paitents as stated in there clauses from sales reps, doubt this people than i guess you know noone in the industry..
70 people dislike that people have the integrity to state the facts.
That the only things that kill more Americans than adverse drug effects are heart disease and cancer.
That even though we spend 15% of the GNP on medical care, we rate 15th out of 25 in health care outcomes.
70 people have such vested financial and emotional interests that they don;t care about the reality, or that you or someone you love is going to DIE as a result of medical corruption...
why does this only have 150k views? My friend almost died tonight in a wreck with an 18 wheeler, yet - she was more concerned about going back to the scene to find the Xanax bars she buried than anything else. Breaks my heart.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
