PRLog - Jan. 4, 2013 - LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- The International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry (ISEPP) today issued a statement calling for a Federal investigation into the link between psychotropic drugs and mass murder.

In the statement ISEPP notes that many individuals who have committed mass violence have been on psychotropic drugs or withdrawing from them. The statement cites the scientific evidence that this link between taking psychotropic drugs and committing mass murder is not coincidental. It cites the evidence that psychiatric drugs can cause akathesia, a state of extreme agitation and upset that is associated with acts of violence and criminality; that the drugs impair emotional processing and therefore take away conscience and caring, and; that the drugs cause people to lose awareness of how they are behaving and control over their behavior.

The statement also notes that, in spite of the evidence of this connection between psychotropic drugs and mass murder, the mainstream media has failed to write about it or investigate it.

“We understand that many factors are involved in acts of mass murder and we are not suggesting that psychotropic drugs are the only or even the major factor,” said Dr. Al Galves, ISEPP Executive Director. “But we believe there is enough evidence of this link between the drugs and mass murder to warrant a Federal investigation.  We encourage the Vice President's Task Force on Gun Violence to address this issue.”

A copy of the statement can be accessed by going to the ISEPP website at www.psychintegrity.org and going to the “Official Statements” link.

It is difficult for many individuals who are not familar with the adverse side effects of psychiatric and other medicaions to understand the fact they can induce a psychotic state that results in violent behavior.
