I joined to find help. I have been on benzodiazepine and at least an anti-depressant for the past 23 years. They have tried over 25 different psych drugs on me in different combinations. I finally woke up to the health damage this has caused and found out that I cannot just stop them. I’ve been tapering so slowly. Trying diets and herbal remedies and am only feeling worse than ever. No doctor will help. I’m hoping to find help here.
My son also needs help more than I do. My eyes have really been opened to the evils of psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry…especially this past summer when a hospital literally attempted to murder my son via forced overdose of a neuroleptic and benzodiazepine injections. Thank God I saw him before he died. He was left to die in isolation for 14 hours. By God’s Grace, I was able to see him before he died. Nobody was helping him.
This is what my husband and I witnessed:
Upon entering the room, we see: my son seated, completely rigid, beet red skin, every muscle tightly flexed, back arched, head thrown back, profusely sweating, eyes rolling back in his head, white foam pouring out of his mouth. Every time he struggled to breathe, I heard gurgling sounds. He struggled so hard to get air. I held his hand and said I was there. He desperately tried to talk with white foam and agonizing groans came out of his mouth- every muscle tensed- struggling. This is when I noticed his jaw was clenched tightly shut. He could not talk. Med tech with towel, constantly wiping up white foam pouring out of his mouth. Then, as I looked at him, his right eye began to spontaneously bleed in two places, filling his eye with blood. I asked what is going on. I was told by the nurse to leave. I refused to leave and insisted he get medical help because he could not even breathe. Finally they ended up rushing him to ICU only because I insisted they help him.
ICU Documentation: “patient arrived with respiratory failure, kidney injury with rhabdomyolysis (Severe muscle damage), Leukocytosis, dehydration, abnormal EKG’s, Clozapine withdraws (that was forced on him) and more. Labs all completely out of whack and vital organ failure. They had to work on him for 48 minutes to get him to breathe well and to keep him alive. They put him on a bi-pap machine to push out fluids and heavily sedated him with Precedex and Ativan IV drips. He was near death. The psych floor was just letting him suffer for at least 14-16 hours- waiting for him to just die.”
