Tom Cruise was right about Psychiatric Drugs

Last year Tom Cruise caused quite a stir amongst psychiatrists and drug companies when he said that psychiatric drugs, such as those prescribed for millions of children in America, were dangerous. At the time psychiatrists and other drug company mouthpieces tried to pretend it wasn't true but since Tom said his piece there has been a steady stream of announcements from the FDA about the dangerous side-effects of these drugs. The latest revelation comes from an FDA Advisory Panel which has recommended a "black box" warning be put on the labels of "ADHD" drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta, Methylin, Metadate, Adderall and Adderall XR.

And I think this quote from the article says it all: "When asked why he and his fellow advisers approved ... a recommendation they hadn't been asked to consider, Gross said: "No. 1, because of the seriousness of the side effects — the sudden deaths. No. 2, there is a sense maybe the diagnosis of ADHD is being applied where it shouldn't be applied." Just what Tom Cruise said last year!
