Violence and Pharma Drugs

When I first put forward the connection between violence and pharmaceutical drugs, I did so very tentatively. (See The Failure of Conventional Medicine, the Creation of Illness. However, the evidence is growing, and a number of well-known, and heavily consumed Big Pharma drugs, like Chantix, Prozac, Seroxat and Lariam are now implicated in causing violent behaviour.

The ten worst drugs are outlined in this article, from the Dr Mercola website.

Chantix appears to be the worst, and is linked to the highest number of reports of violence, aggression, and psychosis (http://www.ahrp.org/cms/content/view/764/9/).
