Making a Killing: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging

Psychotropic drugs. It’s the story of big money-drugs that fuel a $330 billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure.

The cost in human terms is even greater-these drugs now kill an estimated 42,000 people every year.

And the death count keeps rising. Containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims and the survivors themselves, this riveting documentary rips the mask off psychotropic drugging and exposes a brutal but well-entrenched money-making machine.

Before these drugs were introduced in the market, people who had these conditions would not have been given any drugs at all.

So it is the branding of a disease and it is the branding of a drug for a treatment of a disease that did not exist before the industry made the disease.

    Fantastic point and a real concern for the average joe. Unfortunately, you can’t trust anything the Church of Scientology puts out.

    I couldn’t watch this documentary more than 10 minutes. It’s such generalization! Yes, it is true that drugs have effects that we don’t want. Yes, unprofessional psychiatrists don’t know what they are doing. But is it the drug that kills the person or the illness (e.g. depression) that makes the people commit suicide. No one can know that!
    I am not for drugs in fact I am against them! I avoid taking drugs as long as I can but sometimes it is the only solution. But psychiatrists who prescribe drugs after a 15 minute diagnosis are unprofessional and shouldn’t be allowed to practice their profession! (This happens only in America!)
    Also the patients and people in general should be better informed and have more will power than to take the way that seems easiest! They have a choice of not to take the drugs and actually work through their problems through therapy if they so choose (of course there are cases where the patient is dangerous to others and themselves e.g. schizophrenia).
    However psychiatry is such a young ”science” that it is still searching for ways to be efficient! We barely know anything about the functioning of the brain, cases and solutions of mental illnesses/disorders.
    I find it offensive that all psychiatrists and psychologists are put in the same group to be corrupted and in the field for only self-interest! I am pretty sure that if the creed for money is the only thing that drives them they’d be in a different field!

    An oppinion is an oppinion and your point of view I can respect it.
    However, the point of this documentary is that there is NO “illness”. It is something that is simply made up.
    How is it possible that something traumatic in your life can classify you as mentally ill? You can begin any given day as happy as you could ever be, then in the middle of the day get a call telling you your dog died and everything just seems to go south. Does that make you Bipolar? life is unpredictable.
    The so called psychiatrists that were featured in the video where not only in America, they were all over the world and they all said the same thing. That one there is no physical, blood or other Logical type test that can tell you what type of “depression” you have. They call it a chemical imbalance, but there is nothing to suggest that your insides are being affected by a mental disorder? Just doesn’t add up.
    A patient Should have the choice to decide whether or not to take the drugs. But the video makes a very concerning point in the case of that 11 yr old that was taken out of school, ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, and given 26 different types of drugs she nor her parents have any kind of say in what happened to they. i say them because it affects the whole family, a family is a unit and for the most part sticks together.
    in most cases of these “scientists” their conflict of interest is that they all have stock in the medication that they prescribe.
    i know non of these families that have been affected by this but it is sickening to think that even after all this FACTS, psychologists/ psychiatrists , which ever, don’t tell their money makers the truth unless you specifically ask for the truth.
    Hopefully, those that study this field of science learn to tell the truth because commenting on this subject as a pro for it can potentially make you a better person than your predecessors. Just for the fact that your trying.

    -Just a normal person
    im i showing signs of a control freak what do i have. Controllisism Disorder,
    yup just what i thought does sound made up.

    I was diagnosed as bipolar and placed on every medication on the market. Nothing worked, and I lost my hair three times and put on 50kg. My life was almost destroyed by psychiatric medication. Eventually I found an endocrinologist who tested my serotonin and hormones for the first time ever to discover I have an autoimmune disease that has shut down my glands. I do not produce serotonin or dopamine and am not getting the right treatment -and all natural products too. For years I was discriminated against and abused by people and doctors for having a ‘mental condition’, the medication made me a zombie and almost gave me diabetes. Psychiatrists are not interested in finding the cause of depression, they just want to prescribe to keep you docile and addicted. The pharmaceutical industry does not want you to be healed, it wants you to be addicted to expensive chemicals.
