					Psychiatric Drugs
Common and well-documented side effects of psychiatric drugs include
mania, psychosis, hallucinations, depersonalization, suicidal ideation,
heart attack, stroke and sudden death. And that is a very partial list
of the side effects documented by international drug regulatory agencies
the world over.

Despite a tremendous amount of information available about psychiatric
drugs and their adverse effects, the data has not been easily accessible
or understandable to the general public. It is for this reason that CCHR
is providing you with information that is not easily available, but is
documented. So you can find the risks for yourself, your friends and
family.



PSYCHIATRIC DRUG SIDE EFFECTS SEARCH ENGINE

The U.S. FDA has a reporting system for adverse events (side effects) for
prescription drugs which is called MedWatch. You can report side effects
to any prescription drug to this website, however, you cannot see what
others have reported as all the information (though available) would be
difficult for a computer programmer to figure out, let alone the average
consumer. Each reporting year is divided into quarters totaling over
94,000 pages of text files- codes-that are fairly useless in their raw
form.

These reports have been decrypted and made into simple searchable tables
for your use. They are the side effects to psychiatric drugs
(Antidepressants, Antipsychotics, Stimulants, etc) that have been
reported to the FDA by doctors, pharmacists, other health care providers,
consumers and others.

CCHR has provided you with this one-of-a-kind Psychiatric Drug Side
Effects Search Engine, using reports taken directly from the FDA’s
MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting System. You can search the side effects
of psychiatric drugs for yourself, including searches by brand name of
the drug, by the age range of patients taking the drug or the combined
summary of all side effects reported for that particular psychiatric
drug.
