Neuroleptic Drugs Psychoactive drugs

Causes Diabetes in 1 in 4 patients who are on Psychiatric drugs.

It is ironic that psychiatrists commonly equate psychiatric drugs as a cure for chemical imbalances the way insulin cures diabetes, when in fact psychiatric drugs actually cause diabetes!

Introduction:

See our main Psychiatric Drug page.

See our reference section of all psychiatric drugs and the disorders they are prescribed for.

Psychiatric drugs not only cause permanent brain damage and body tremors, they are also diabetogenic (cause diabetes).

Chemical psychiatry has a long history of hurting and harming people and iatrogenic diabetes is just another example.

If you take a psychiatric drug, there is a 1 in 5 chance or greater that you will get diabetes, because you are taking the drug. Some studies show that 25% (1 in 4) get drug induced diabetes.

These psychiatric drugs cause diabetes for three reasons: 1. they generally act as tranquilizers, making people sedentary and slower moving. 2. the stimulate appetite. 3. they create chemical imbalances in the brain that alter the glucose metabolism.

So in addition to doing direct brain damage, neuroleptic and psychoactive drugs will give you a real disease called diabetes.

It is well documented that neuroleptic drugs are diabetogenic, even the FDA warns that these drugs trigger diabetes.

It is ironic that psychiatrists commonly equate psychiatric drugs as a cure for chemical imbalances the way insulin cures diabetes, when in fact psychiatric drugs can actually cause a person to become diabetic!

A. neuroleptic drugs cause diabetes (diabetogenic)

"In fact, among the mentally ill, roughly one in every five appear to develop diabetes - about double the rate of the general population. This is a little-recognized surge, but one that is jolting mental health professionals into rethinking how they care for an often neglected population." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

"Perhaps the one telltale sign that the meeting was for people diagnosed with a mental illness was that a fair number were overweight. People diagnosed with bipolar disorder are often prescribed an atypical antipsychotic, such as Zyprexa, and those drugs regularly cause people to put on the pounds." (Anatomy of an Epidemic, Robert Whitaker, 2010 AD, p13)

"antipsychotics ... are also diabetogenic, in part by stimulating both appetite and lassitude. One in every five patients on an antipsychotic drug develops diabetes." (Coercion as Cure, Thomas Szasz, 2007 AD, p 185)

"The annual number of children prescribed anti-psychotic drugs jumped fivefold between 1995 and 2002, to an estimated 2.5 million, the study said. That is an increase from 8.6 out of every 1,000 children in the mid-1990s to nearly 40 out of 1,000. But more than half of the prescriptions were for attention deficit and other non-psychotic conditions ... The increasing use of anti-psychotics since the mid-1990s corresponds with the introduction of costly and heavily marketed medications such as Zyprexa and Risperdal. The packaging information for both says their safety and effectiveness in children have not been established. The drugs, which typically cost several dollars per pill, are considered safer than older anti-psychotics-at least in adults-but they still can have serious side effects, including weight gain, elevated cholesterol and diabetes." (Anti-psychotic drug use in kids skyrockets: Fivefold increase from 1995 to 2002, researchers find, Associated Press, March. 16, 2006)

"Robin Stigliano, a diabetic who lives at the Bayview Manor adult home in Brooklyn, takes drugs for schizophrenia. Her weight has soared to 241 pounds from 150." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

How psychiatric drugs hurt you: "drug-induced mania, overactivity, insomnia, racing thoughts, frantic and exhausting outbursts of energy, grandiosity and fantasies of omnipotence, paranoia, ... suicide, throw away their life's savings on unrealistic schemes or to ruin or quit jobs and marriages ... memory, concentration difficulties, headaches and stomachaches, sleep problems, bladder and bowel dysfunctions of various kinds, skin problems, sexual dysfunctions, weight loss or gain, tiredness or apathy, anxious or depressed feelings, irritability, and impatience. ... abnormal sugar and/or insulin metabolism, weight gain, elevated cholesterol levels, and high blood pressure ... flattening of emotions" (Your Drug May Be Your Problem, Peter Breggin, David Cohen, 2007 AD, p 110)

"psychiatrists must confront the fact that diabetes, marked by dangerously high blood sugar, is often aggravated, if not precipitated, by some of the very medicines they prescribe: antipsychotic pills that have been linked to swift weight gain and the illness [diabetes] itself." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

""It's bad enough that these people have mental illness, and then they take treatments [drugs] and they bring on diabetes," said Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, chairman of the psychiatry department at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

""Psychiatrists are literally watching patients balloon up before their eyes," said Dr. Gail Daumit, an assistant professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. This has been especially true since the advent of so-called atypical antipsychotic drugs in the early 1990's. Studies indicate that these drugs can alter glucose metabolism and stimulate weight gain, particularly in people predisposed to diabetes." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

"The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires atypical antipsychotics to bear warning labels about diabetes risk" (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

"In a 2003 survey, the city's health department found that about 17 percent of adults who reported symptoms of a mental illness, or 52,000, have diagnosed diabetes. Elsewhere, rates are as great or greater." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

""When I chat with patients, about clozapine, I say, 'This may give you your mind back, but it may hurt your body,' " Dr. Duckworth said. "I think of it as psychiatric chemotherapy. Your hair won't fall out, but you may get diabetes."" (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

"A recent State Department of Health sampling of 19 homes found that nearly a quarter of residents had diabetes." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

B. How Psychiatric drugs cause diabetes:

Psychiatric drugs cause diabetes three ways: The Tranquilizing effect, stimulate appetite, alter the glucose metabolism.

It is well documented that neuroleptic drugs are like a chemical lobotomy whose main effect is to create a chemical imbalance in the brain, where none existed before, that turns active people into inactive and sedentary zombies. It is well known that lack of physical exercise is a trigger to diabetes. These drugs slow down body function to a bare minimum.

People that take Neuroleptics eat, sleep, play cards, smoke and are not at all self-motivated to engage in regular exercise classes.

"Robin Stigliano's psychiatrist has her taking Haldol by injection as well as one of the drugs most closely associated with weight gain, Zyprexa. They have helped her schizophrenia, but Ms. Stigliano, 37, who lives in a Brooklyn adult home, has seen her weight soar to 241 pounds from 150. And when she gets her Haldol infusion every three weeks, all she wants to do is sleep. "It's my favorite activity," she said." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

A. Psychiatrists and asylums indifferent: Psychiatrists today really only write prescriptions. Although real medical doctors, they rarely if ever, look after the basic physical health needs of their patients like, weighing their patients. ""Most psychiatrists barely look at their patients," said Dr. Donna Ames Wirshing, a staff psychiatrist at the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration Medical Center. She recently asked 30 how many weighed their patients; 3 hands went up." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

Asylums, mental hospitals and welfare group houses are generally only interested in their patients being as quite and non-disruptive as possible which makes their job easier. Just as Ritalin is a unionized teacher's best friend for any easier job in the classroom, so too Neuroleptics are the asylum's best friend to keep control and lessen the work load of staff. "Surf Manor squats on the tip of Coney Island, one of the dozens of profit-making adult homes in the city where thousands of the mentally ill live. Residents complain about the food. Activities are light on exertion. The week's offerings are taped to the wall: dominoes, blackjack, manicures, jewelry class. So the men and women eat, sleep, smoke, watch TV, sleep - then do it all over again. Unsurprisingly, those who live there say, dozens of the 200 residents struggle with diabetes." (In Diabetes, One More Burden for the Mentally Ill, N. R. Kleinfield, New York Times, June 12, 2006 AD)

The unionized workers in Asylums and mental hospitals, and minimum wage workers in the welfare group houses have no incentive to "work that hard" to create regular exercise and diet programs for the insane.

Conclusion:

It is ironic that psychiatrists commonly equate psychiatric drugs as a cure for chemical imbalances the way insulin cures diabetes, when in fact psychiatric drugs can actually cause a person to become diabetic!

Psychiatric drugs not only cause brain damage and create chemical imbalances were not existed. It is no surprise that Psychiatric drugs cause diabetes in 1 in 4 of users.

Psychiatry has a long history of hurting and harming society and individuals.

Important Note: Never stop taking prescribed drugs of a medical doctor or psychiatrist without first consulting them. Stopping cold turkey might kill you! If you are on Neuroleptic by a judges order, get a job and show you can function on your own and ask for your drugs to be reduced by your doctor. The more you show your psychiatrist you can function independently, responsibly and normally on your own, the less drugs they will prescribe. Its all up to you! The first step is to tell your doctor that the drugs are interfering with your ability to work. Ask your doctor to cut your drug dose down. After six months of working, go in again and ask him to reduce it again. As long as you can function independently, responsibly and normally on your own they will keep reducing the drugs over time at your request. Always work through your doctor. Never make any decisions to make drug or dosing changes without a doctors oversight.
