Psychiatric drugs damage the brain/My story
Self portrait taken 5 years ago when I first went off the drugs
At 13 I was put on SSRIs for severe OCD (possibly caused from being on Ritalin.) After being on SSRIs and not being told of the side effects for 9 years I lost the ability to have a full orgasm or feel deep emotions. Other side effects are, loss of libido, dampened imagination, low blood pressure, loss of energy, inability to feel pleasure physically and mentally (meaning drugs, foods, any kind of stimulation), excessive sweating and oily skin, insomnia, muscle twitches and tremors, and acne. Life has become hard without pleasure and instincts that completely gone, my heart can no longer think... I’ve been off of all medication now for 5 years and side effects all remain.
There are research studies that provide evidence for these drugs changing the brain in development. Why is this not told to parents when prescribed?
Repost this to raise awareness that psychiatric drugs are not safe and can damage the brain. So no child or person has to go through what I have. Because of psychiatry I have lost deep meaning in life. Much peace.
