International and Australian Psychiatric Drug Warnings
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is Australia’s drug regulatory agency. They are responsible for authorising the sale of drugs and medical devices in Australia as well as their removal from sale if they are harmful to the public. They also conduct investigations into drugs and medical devices as well as issue warnings about these.
The TGA have issued over 60 warnings since 1995 with regards to psychotropic drugs and done other investigations. There have been more than 230 other psychiatric drug warnings issued by international governments.
CCHR has written a Fact Sheet covering all the Australian psychiatric drug warnings, in layman’s terms. This enables the warnings to be understood by everyone.
These warnings include side effects such as: hallucinations, loss of coordination, increased blood pressure, agitation, akathisia (the inability to remain motionless) and aggression, life threatening heart problems, addiction, depression, psychosis, suicidal ideation and possible death.
