In my opinion the drug that Cathal Grant prescribes for ADD and ADHD , Adderall. Here is another case of death by this drug a woman says “I Blame Adderall for My Brother’s Death”, will Cathal Grant tell you about all the deaths from this drug, no he will in many cases put it with other drugs to make a “cocktail” of drugs to make the effect even more fatal.

  •  Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, is still accepting money from the drug companies which brings his total to $151,474.00 since 2010, our experience to push the drugs if you need them or not.

In our experience the facts below prove Cathal Grant is doing what he paid for by the drug companies

In our opinion had experienced the out and out quackery of Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, his use of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DMS)in what can only be described as a publication of Fraud or Quackery of medical science, and does no true medical science test (with a blood test, x-ray, urine test, etc.) or applied scientific procedures, Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DMS) must use it to prove diagnosis of these “conditions” or “disorders” which are nothing more than in actually “labels” he puts on people, why because he does not use true medical science test (with a blood test, x-ray, urine test, etc.) or applied scientific procedures, he has no equipment in his offce to do these test, or any lab contracted to do them. Also, claims of Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, prescribing dangerous Psychotropic medications based on the claims of a chemical imbalance in your brains chemistry, but this is not the scientific or medical facts at all.

 Dr. Mark Hyman on ADD and ADHD:

They even have a code if you do not buy into their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DMS) of voted upon “conditions” or “labels”, it is called “V15.81 Noncompliance with treatment” it means you are mentally ill if you do not go for their treatment which always means Psychotropic drugs, you must admit they covered everything to get you on Psychotropic drugs .

Claimed imbalance theory is a myth

  • Jonathan Leo, associate professor of anatomy at Western Universityof Health Sciences, says, “If a psychiatrist says you have a shortage of a chemical, ask for a blood test and watch the psychiatrist’s reaction. The number of people who believe that scientists have proven that depressed people have low serotonin is a glorious testament to the power of marketing.” 1
  • Dr. Ron Leifer, a New York psychiatrist, agrees: “There’s no biological imbalance. When people come to me and they say, ‘I have a biological imbalance,’ I say, ‘Show me your lab tests.’ There are no lab tests.” 2
  • Diabetes is a biochemical imbalance. However, “the definitive test and biochemical imbalance is a high blood sugar level. Treatment in severe cases is insulin injections, which restore sugar balance. The symptoms clear and retest shows the blood sugar is normal,” said Dr. Joseph Glenmullen of Harvard Medical School. “Nothing like a sodium imbalance or blood sugar imbalance exists for depression or any other psychiatric syndrome.”3
  • Edward Drummond, MD, an Associate Medical Director of a mental health center in New Hampshire, stated: “First, no biological etiology [cause] has been proven for any psychiatric disorder…in spite of decades of research.…So don’t accept the myth that we can make an ‘accurate diagnosis’.…Neither should you believe that your problems are due solely to a ‘chemical imbalance.’ 4
  • Dr. Darshak Sanghavi, clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School, wrote: “despite pseudoscientific terms like ‘chemical imbalance,’ nobody really knows what causes mental illness. There’s no blood test or brain scan for major depression. No geneticist can diagnose schizophrenia.” 5

Brain imaging cannot prove mental disorder, either

  • Psychiatrist Dr. M. Douglas Mar said, “There is no scientific basis for these claims [of using brain scans for psychiatric diagnosis].” 6
  • Dr. Timothy Scott, Ph.D., lecturer and author of America Fooled, wrote that PET scans (brain scans) “seem so scientific that they are convincing. In truth, PET scans do not prove depression or schizophrenia or other mental disorders result from chemical imbalances or a defective brain.” Advertisements that claim otherwise “are paid for by drug companies that want you to believe that your brain chemistry may be messed up and that taking their $150 [€118] per month pills will fix your problem.” 7
  • The New York Times summed up research spanning 30 years revealing that psychiatrists and researchers have never established brain imaging as a means for diagnosing any mental disorders or biological or physical cause for one. 8

 Mental disorders not genetic

  • Psychiatry makes “ unproven claims that depression, bipolar illness, anxiety disorders, alcoholism and a host of other disorders are in fact primarily biologic and probably genetic in origin,” says psychiatrist David Kaiser. (Emphasis added)” 9
  • Dr. Bruce Levine, Ph.D., author of Commonsense Rebellion, concurs: “Remember that no biochemical, neurological, or genetic markers have been found for attention deficit disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, compulsive alcohol and drug abuse, overeating, gambling, or any other so‑called mental illness, disease, or disorder.” 10
  • In his book Blaming The Brain, biopsychologist Elliot S. Valenstein says the “biochemical” theory is held onto only because it is “useful in promoting drug treatment.” Carl Elliot, a bioethicist at the University of Minnesota, sums it up: “The way to sell drugs is to sell psychiatric illness.” 11

Claims of a chemical imbalance  in your brain’s chemistry by Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas,   is just in another fraud ploy in getting you on these (these drugs do include Adderall, Antidepressants, which include the SSRI Class of drugs) Psychotropic drugs so he can make you an addict to these Psychotropic drugs so he can keep you coming back for you Psychotropic drug hit, and he can keep collecting office fees for no other reason to feed his greed for wealth, and his policy of spending only five minutes with each patient for more profit (he should be spending and hour with each patient in “talk therapy”, he would like you to think his nurse practitioner can provide this “talk therapy”, but in actually their training is limited and the harm they can do is very great, due to this lack of training, and personal issues they bring in with them that harms the patient and their careers, children, families, and marriages).

Promenade physicians as Dr. Mercola, Dr. Hayman, and Dr. Drew respected and nationally known physicians have come out against this form of medical quackery and the casual prescribing of Psychotropic medications including their “cocktails” of medications (more than one Psychotropic medications prescribed together at the same time, creating a more toxic combination in the body) (these drugs do include Adderall, Antidepressants, which include the SSRI Class of drugs), and in our experience this is how Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, operates, and treats his patients.

Dr. Drew, Nancy Grace on Whitney Houston

The situation of the Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, not only prescribing  ADDERALL (a Schedule II controlled substance) is the new name for a Dextroamphetamine/Amphetamine composite medication, and as we will see a deadly drug that has been pulled off the market in Canada after regulators linked the drug to 20 sudden deaths and 12 strokes. Fourteen of the deaths and two of the 12 strokes were in children, and does he tell his patient about all these risks no. Yet, Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, still prescribes this deadly drug by itself, but also combines the chance of a deadly reaction by including ADDERALL in a “cocktail” (a combination which is known to be lethal if the drugs combined react to each other) One patient went toDr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, for “Stress” he ended up with one of Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, deadly cocktails of  ADDERALL, XANIX, and LEXAPRO. The patients immediately had severe reactions to this deadly “cocktail”. He complained to Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas,and Sharon Walters RN, Bedford, Texas, his nurse about chest pains, and feeling generally in bad health, Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, and Sharon Walters RN, Bedford, Texas, ignored his complaints and acted totally unconcerned, the patient ended up at his general practitioner with severe chest pain, and was treated by his general practitioner.  After seeing another doctor on the first visit the patient was imediately taken off the ADDERALL, and XANIX, after some time he was tested for ADD and did not have it, and was finally taken off the LEXAPRO, after seeing a detox doctor to rid the patient of the toxins left in his body by  Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas,”cocktail” the patient was told there was nothing wrong with the patient in the first place, and Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, and Sharon Walters RN, Bedford, Texas,  gave him the medications just to sell drugs for the drug companies who pay him.

  • Results of Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, drug “Cocktail” of ADDERALL, XANIX, and LEXAPRO in terms of drug interactions:

 

  • fluoxetine ↔ amphetamine

Applies to: Prozac (fluoxetine), Adderall XR (amphetamine/dextroamphetamine)

GENERALLY AVOID: Several case reports suggest that serotonin reuptake inhibitors may potentiate the pharmacologic response to sympathomimetic agents. The exact mechanism of interaction is unclear. In one case report, a patient experienced jitteriness, racing thoughts, stomach cramps, dry eyes, palpitations, tremors, and restlessness following a single dose of phentermine ingested approximately a week after she had discontinued fluoxetine. Because of the long half-life of fluoxetine and its metabolite, an interaction with fluoxetine is possible. Similar toxic reactions have been reported when fluoxetine was used concomitantly with amphetamine or phenylpropanolamine. Additionally, some sympathomimetic agents such as amphetamines may possess serotonergic activity and should generally not be administered with serotonin reuptake inhibitors because of the additive risk of serotonin syndrome, which is a rare but serious and potentially fatal condition thought to result from hyperstimulation of brainstem 5-HT1A and 2A receptors. The interaction was suspected in a patient treated with dexamphetamine who developed symptoms consistent with the serotonin syndrome approximately 2 weeks after the addition of venlafaxine. The medications were discontinued and the patient was given cyproheptadine for suspected serotonin syndrome, whereupon symptoms promptly resolved. A second episode occurred when dexamphetamine was subsequently resumed and citalopram added. The patient improved following cessation of citalopram on his own, and residual symptoms were successfully treated with cyproheptadine.

MANAGEMENT: In general, amphetamines and other sympathomimetic appetite suppressants should not be combined with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). Close monitoring for enhanced sympathomimetic effects and possible serotonin syndrome is recommended if these agents must be used together. Symptoms of the serotonin syndrome may include mental status changes such as irritability, altered consciousness, confusion, hallucinations, and coma; autonomic dysfunction such as tachycardia, hyperthermia, diaphoresis, shivering, blood pressure lability, and mydriasis; neuromuscular abnormalities such as hyperreflexia, myoclonus, tremor, rigidity, and ataxia; and gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

  • fluoxetine ↔ dextroamphetamine

Applies to: Prozac (fluoxetine), Adderall XR (amphetamine/dextroamphetamine)

GENERALLY AVOID: Several case reports suggest that serotonin reuptake inhibitors may potentiate the pharmacologic response to sympathomimetic agents. The exact mechanism of interaction is unclear. In one case report, a patient experienced jitteriness, racing thoughts, stomach cramps, dry eyes, palpitations, tremors, and restlessness following a single dose of phentermine ingested approximately a week after she had discontinued fluoxetine.

  • alprazolam ↔ fluoxetine

Applies to: Xanax (alprazolam), Prozac (fluoxetine)

MONITOR: Fluoxetine may increase plasma alprazolam concentrations, decrease alprazolam clearance, and increase the elimination half-life of alprazolam. The mechanism may be related to inhibition of CYP450 3A4 microsomal drug metabolism. This combination may impair psychomotor performance and reports have suggested that the risk of cardiac toxicity such as bradycardia may be increased.

MANAGEMENT: If fluoxetine and alprazolam must be used together, close observation is recommended for increased adverse effects. Patients should be warned about excessive drowsiness and potential adverse effects on their psychomotor and driving skills.

Other drugs that your selected drugs interact with

In general Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, prescribed a “deadly cocktail”, without any concern for the patient’s life, and then ignored when issues described occurred, and in our opinion all for his personal greed for wealth (five minutes with Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, and you are out the door with a drug if you need it or not), and to get a credit with the drug companies for prescribing their drugs, and all of this deadly cocktail was based on the  Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DMS) in what can only be described as a publication of Fraud or Quackery of medical science, and does no true medical science test (with a blood test, x-ray, urine test, etc.) or applied scientific procedures, a fact that Cathal Grant does not want to get out, about the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DMS) it a fraud of medical science, and is nothing but a book oflabels to put on patients so he can prescribe drugs and charge them and his insurance company for , and get them hooked on these medications, so he can get more money from offices visits, but it really seems he does not care if he kills his patients with his deadly “cocktails”.

“I Blame Adderall for My Brother’s Death”

Minneapolis, MN: It wasn’t until Susan’s brother passed away from a heart attack that she discovered he had been taking Adderall, a drug that has been linked to heart attack, stroke and cardiac arrest. She has no idea why he was prescribed Adderall, but she is hopeful that an attorney will help her find some answers.

Even though a new study indicates that there is no evidence of Adderall heart problems, the jury is still out regarding the link between ADHD medications like Adderall and heart risks. Susan (not her real name) is convinced that her brother would still be alive today if he wasn’t taking 90mg of Adderall daily, which is an extremely high dosage.

“My brother, Gary, was only 64 years old when he passed away in September 2010,” Susan says. “My sister and I, and even his neighbor, noticed his unusual behavior that started about 18 months before he died,” says Susan. “He was a big guy and a Vietnam veteran—in fact he wrote a book about his war experiences and was set up for a book signing just before he died—but he lost so much weight and was so ‘out of it,’ we just couldn’t figure it out.

“Just before he died my sister and I visited him and his wife in Arizona. One night we were all going out for dinner and Gary was so wasted he couldn’t even walk. He didn’t drink alcohol (although he used to be a light drinker) and he certainly didn’t take drugs. But we believe that this prescription drug, Adderall, was a lot more dangerous than alcohol and illegal drugs combined. I talked to his neighbor and he said Gary was always like that—wasted.

“I remember commenting about his weight loss. ‘You are getting so skinny, what is happening to you?’ I asked him. ‘Yeah, I recently went to a high school reunion and people asked me if I had a terminal disease,’ he replied, laughing.

“There was another incident I remember. The last summer before Gary died I called him around midday. ‘I’m in slug mode,’ he said, without even the energy to talk. It was like he had been drugged. This wasn’t like Gary at all, he was always an early riser; he usually had coffee made and the newspaper read by 6am.

“The chief of police and the medical examiner took Gary’s body out of the house and a few days later his wife showed me three bottles of Adderall. Two were empty and one was half full. He was taking 90mg a day and he had already had a heart attack. I knew Gary was on beta blockers for his heart; he also told me that his heart condition was under control. His death certificate said the cause of death was cardiac arrhythmia and the secondary cause was coronary artery disease.

“I wrote a complaint to the chief of police. He responded to my complaint, saying the medical examiner would investigate his medical records and I will get a full report. But I never got a report and Adderall wasn’t even mentioned. It seemed to me that the medical examiner chose to ignore it, possibly because I mentioned a medical malpractice suit.

“I called Gary’s doctor to find out why he was prescribed Adderall. He was getting treated through the VA clinic but the Adderall was from a private practice physician—Gary’s first wife told me that this doctor was known as a ‘pill pusher.’ I didn’t get any answers from either doctor.

“Gary had just gone on full disability and he was looking forward to retirement. I can’t help but think Gary would be alive today if he hadn’t been prescribed Adderall.”

ADDERALL (a Schedule II controlled substance) is the new name for a Dextroamphetamine/Amphetamine composite medication that has been around for more than 30 years. This formula was also used in a medication known as Obetrol, made in the past by Rexar and developed for weight loss. As a medication for ADHD, Adderall was approved for unrestricted use for treatment of ADHD by the FDA in March 1996.

20 Deaths Linked to Adderall XR

as reported by Associated Press and Bloomberg News on February 10, 2005

Adderall XR, a widely used drug for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, was pulled off the market in Canada after regulators linked the drug to 20 sudden deaths and 12 strokes. Fourteen of the deaths and two of the 12 strokes were in children.

The adverse reactions were not associated with overdose, misuse or abuse of Adderall XR, Canadian regulators said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a public health advisory to alert providers to the withdrawal. But the agency also said it had evaluated the same reports as Canadian regulators and did not think the data warranted pulling the drug from the U.S. market.

Adderall XR Side Effects and Warnings

Updated August 16, 2008

Schedule II Substance

FDA “Black Box” Warning Label

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires the following “black box” warning on all amphetamines, including Adderall and Adderall XR, which means that medical studies indicate these drugs carry a significant risk of serious, or even life-threatening, adverse effects.

WARNING

AMPHETAMINES HAVE A HIGH POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE. ADMINISTRATION OF AMPHETAMINES FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME MAY LEAD TO DRUG DEPENDENCE AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PARTICULAR ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO THE POSSIBILITY OF SUBJECTS OBTAINING AMPHETAMINES FOR NONTHERAPEUTIC USE OR DISTRIBUTION TO OTHERS, AND THE DRUGS SHOULD BE PRESCRIBED OR DISPENSED SPARINGLY. MISUSE OF AMPHETAMINE MAY CAUSE SUDDEN DEATH AND SERIOUS CARDIOVASCULAR ADVERSE EVENTS.

ABOVE: FDA black box warning label means that medical studies indicate the drug carries a significant risk of serious or even life-threatening adverse effects.

Used For:

  • Attention deficit disorder
  • Narcolepsy
  • Depression
  • Obesity

How Amphetamines Work:

When we are stressed or under threat, the central nervous system prepares us for physical action by creating particular physiological changes. Amphetamines prompt the brain to initiate this ‘fight or flight’ response. These changes include:

  • The release of adrenalin and other stress hormones
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Redirected blood flow into the muscles and away from the gut

In small doses amphetamines can banish tiredness and make the user feel alert and refreshed. However, the burst of energy comes at a price. A “speed crash” always follows the high and may leave the person feeling nauseous, irritable, depressed and extremely exhausted.

Do Not Use If

You have not tried other psychotherapy, have high blood pressure or any form of heart disease, are very nervous or have severe insomnia, have a history of addiction to drugs or alcohol, or have Tourette syndrome. Do not combine with monoamine oxidase inhibitors.

Common Side Effects

  • Dry Mouth
  • Loss of appetite
  • Headache
  • Difficulty falling asleep (insomnia)
  • Nervousness including agitation,
  • anxiety and irritability
  • Addiction

Less Common Side Effects

  • High blood pressure
  • Rapid pulse rate
  • Tolerance (constant need to raise the dose)
  • Feelings of suspicion and paranoia
  • Visual hallucinations (seeing things that are not there)
  • Depression
  • Cocaine craving
  • Dermatoses (infected or diseased skin)
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Infection or viral infection
  • Elevated ALT enzyme levels in the blood (signaling liver damage)

Overdose Side Effects

Amphetamines have been extensively abused. Extreme psychological dependence and severe social disability have resulted. Abuse of amphetamines may cause a sudden heart attack even in those with no signs of heart disease.

Symptoms of overdose that require immediate medical assistance include:

  • Restlessness
  • Tremor
  • Aggression
  • Hallucinations
  • Panic States
  • Hyperreflexia (overactive reflexes, which can include twitching or spasms)
  • Personality changes
  • Symptoms of depression
  • Seizures or abnormal EEGs
  • High blood pressure
  • Rapid heart beat
  • Swelling of hands/feet/ankles (for example, numbing of the fingertips)
  • Delusions
  • Sweating
  • Vomiting
  • Dehydration
  • Unexplained muscle pain
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Rhabdomyolysis and kidney damage
  • Chronic abuse can manifest itself as psychosis, often indistinguishable from schizophrenia

 Amphetamine-Induced Anxiety Disorder

The onset of amphetamine-induced anxiety disorder can occur during amphetamine use or withdrawal, according to best-selling psychiatry text,  Kaplan and Sadock’s Synopsis of Psychiatry citing American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders “Amphetamine, as with cocaine, can induce symptoms similar to those seen in obsessive disorder, panic disorder, and phobic disorders,” states Synopsis of Psychiatry

 Adderall-Induced Psychosis

Induction of schizophrenic-like states in children on prescribed doses of stimulant medications, including Adderall, have been observed, though not as well documented as with amphetamine abusers, according to The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine  in an article entitled, “Adderall-Induced Psychosis in an Adolescent.”

 Amphetamine-Induced Sexual Dysfunction

Referring again to American Psychiatric Association’s Manual of Mental DisordersSynopsis of Psychiatry states: “High doses and long-term use of amphetamines are associated with  erectile disorder and other sexual dysfunctions.” 

Dependence, Tolerance and Withdrawal

It is possible to build up a tolerance to amphetamines, which means the person using the drug needs to take larger doses to achieve the same effect. Over time, the body might come to depend on amphetamines just to function normally. The person craves the drug and their psychological dependence makes them panic if access is denied, even temporarily. Withdrawal symptoms can include tiredness, panic attacks, crankiness, extreme hunger, depression and nightmares. Some people experience a pattern of “binge crash” characterized by using continuously for several days without sleep, followed by a period of heavy sleeping.   

If It Doesn’t Work

The drug should be stopped gradually. Withdrawal symptoms are psychological and stopping  suddenly can cause extreme fatigue and severe, even suicidal, depression in adult patients.

In our experience Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, does not tell you on big fact that you the patient has and that is Informed Consent, Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, does not discuss this or wants you to know about this, in our experience so he can get you hooked on psychotropic medications so you can do nothing but feed you greed for money, and you do not care at all what you do to the patient’s life.
This video proves what we are saying in our opinion about Cathal Grant’s medical practice, it also shows how Cathal Grant does not want you to have informed consent in your visit with him, and he does not tell you the truth, as the video below shows:
