Study reveals top ten violence-inducing prescription drugs

As most who read this know-I would tend toward a more conspiratorial view of this. Our government has often experimented on us with drugs and I suspect they have known about this.  http://www.naturalnews.com/029946_government_conspiracy_medical_experiments.html

Notice that the smoking cessation drug Chantix is # 1 and that the US and local governments have been HEAVILY pushing people to stop smoking through their heavy handed criminalization of smoking everywhere even in people’s own homes. http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-news/ci_16417771?source=rss&nclick_check=1

Don’t think for 1 minute that they do not want an increase in violence as an excuse to further restrict your rights and freedoms. (E) http://www.truthandliberty.com/ProblemReactionSolution.html and https://ephraiyim.wordpress.com/the-problem-reaction-solution-paradigm-why-911-happened/

(NaturalNews) The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) recently published a study in the journalPLoS Onehighlighting the worst prescription drug offenders that cause patients to become violent. Among the top-ten most dangerous are the antidepressants Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), Paxil (paroxetine) and Prozac (fluoxetine).

Concerns about the extreme negative side effects of many popular antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs have been on the rise, as these drugs not only cause severe health problems to users, but also pose a significant threat to society. The ISMP report indicates that, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration‘s (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System, many popular drugs are linked even to homicides.

Most of the drugs in the top ten most dangerous are antidepressants, but also included are an insomnia medication, an attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drug, a malaria drug and an anti-smoking medication.

As reported inTime, the top ten list is as follows:

10. Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) – An antidepressant that affects serotonin and noradrenaline. The drug is        7.9 times more likely to be associated withviolencethan other drugs.

9. Venlafaxine (Effexor) – An antidepressant that treats anxiety disorders. The drug is 8.3 times more     likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

8. Fluvoxamine (Luvox) – A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drug that is 8.4 times more       likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

7. Triazolam (Halcion) – A benzodiazepine drug for insomnia that is 8.7 times more likely to be                   associated with violence than other drugs.

6. Atomoxetine (Strattera) – An ADHD drug that is 9 times more likely to be associated with violence       than other drugs.

5. Mefoquine (Lariam) – A malaria drug that is 9.5 times more likely to be associated with violence           than other drugs.

4. Amphetamines – This general class of ADHD drug is 9.6 times more likely to be associated with             violence than other drugs.

3. Paroxetine (Paxil) – An SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.3 times more likely to be associated            with violence than other drugs. It is also linked to severe withdrawal symptoms and birth defects.

2. Fluoxetine (Prozac) – A popular SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.9 times more likely to be               associated with violence than other drugs.

1. Varenicline (Chantix) – An anti-smoking drug that is a shocking 18 times more likely to be                       associated with violence than other drugs.
