In my opinion has seen the lack of care of Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, for the patients and families of his patients, the ignoring of the data sheet from drug companies such as Eli Lilly in the case of the drug Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, prescribes the most Cymbalta from the data sheet on Cymbalta that “Families and caregivers should be advised of the need for close observation and communication with the prescriber” Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, never advises the families of this factor, he feels no responsibility to convey these facts, leaving the families open to possible attack by their own family members, Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, in fact ignores and all reports of unusual changes of behavior, he does not want to hear about any problems at all. Eli Lilly also advises “All patients being treated with antidepressants for any indication should be monitored appropriately and observed closely for clinical worsening, suicidality, and unusual changes in behavior, especially during the initial few months of a course of drug therapy, or at times of dose changes, either increases or decreases”, when notified in one case Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, ignored this warning to the point that a family member was attacked and injured, the probable cause in the case Akathisia, and Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, ignored all the warning from the family member to the point the husband in this case was attacked without warning the horrible fact is, to cover up his mistake Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, told the wife to leave her husband and divorce him, in a marriage that had seen no problems. Others has had similar occurrences and another family member says “I’ve read bad reviews on Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, who seems to prescribe medication freely without spending the time to talk/listen to understand the roots of an issue. My ex-husband wanted medication for sleep, but got medication for depression/anxiety on top of that. The office has a policy of, ask and they will prescribe, which is irresponsible. More than anything he needed someone to talk to, work out his issues, help him gain perspective, and a doctor that encouraged him to reduce stress/increase endorphins in natural ways by exercising,. Even if it costs more in the beginning, it’s worth it in the long wrong to get a good mental health professional. I would say that Dr. Grant’s indifferent policy helped lead to the demise of our marriage b/c despite taking medication, nothing really changed and he had so much pent up anger/frustration”, here again Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, causes another divorce with his lack of proper medicatin montering and not listening to the family, in our opinion Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, should be known as “Dr. Divorce” because he causes divorces with his treatment methods. Another woman describes the damage Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, did to her husband “My husband was going to this clinic for about 4 years, and he was constantly seeing different people. After several years of going here, the nurse practitioners would call and leave voicemails calling him by his last name. Every time you visit they will have you with a different therapist, and they don’t keep notes as serious as a recent death in your family, or that you’ve had a severe reaction to a drug (they re-prescribed him a medication that caused aggression just a few months after I had to call them to tell him how he was reacting). The sad truth is that this clinic is very very poorly run (typical wait time is 1 hour PAST your appointment time before you even get to see anyone), they only want your money and don’t seem to care at all about getting the patient better. As a result of the years of neglect in treating the problems I tried many times to tell them about, my husband seriously hurt himself and we now have several thousand dollars in hospital bills because of it. Had he been on more than an … 4 years, and he was constantly seeing different people.

As a result of the years of neglect in treating the problems I tried many times to tell them about, my husband seriously hurt himself and we now have several thousand dollars in hospital bills because of it. Had he been on more than an anti-depressant this probably would never have happened. Don’t expect them to listen to you when you tell them things you’re seeing in a person, they apparently think they know a patient better than someone that lives with them (and they typically spend 10 mins a visit with the patient). HORRIBLE ethics, we agree with her on this on. While another mother comment about her son’s treatment “My son was a patient of Dr. Grant. He was two weeks away from an appointment, and was taken to the hospital and kept on suicide watch. I called Dr. Grant to get him in, but was told they had no openings. I was to call to see if they had a cancellation. I tried several times, but was only able to get him in when his appointment came around. Then they only saw him for 5 minutes. So in two weeks, they couldn’t get a suicidal patient in for 5 minutes? And I have had nothing but problems with prescriptions written. Every one requires prior authorization, so my son runs out of medication before the doctor and the insurance get it straightened out. Why doesn’t the doctor approve it when he decides to write the prescription? I do not recommend Dr. Grant or his office to anyone for any reason” All of these instances have the earmark of the condition Akathisia so let’s look at the condition Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, ignores, to the point of ruining careers, families, children, and marriages. 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 .

Psychotropic drugs is a story of big money. These drugs fuel a $330-billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure — and now kill an estimated 36,000 people every year, with the death toll still rising.
This is part one of a riveting 10-part documentary containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims and the survivors themselves.

One side effect of SSRIs is a sensation called Akathisia. Akathisia is a restless agitation ranging from jitteriness to a sensation described by “jumping out of one’s skin.” Some researchers and physicians believe that Akathisia is the principal trigger for impulsive violence in some people taking SSRIs. Patients become anxious, agitated, terrified, unable to sleep at night and restless. There have long been signs that SSRIs sometimes cause these reactions, which drug manufacturers have tried to keep out of the public eye and off the labels. The Akathisia issue first arose a couple years after Prozac went on the market, amidst media reports about grisly acts of murder and suicide. One event took place in 1989, when Joseph Wesbecker went on a shooting frenzy, killing nine fellow workers of a Louisville, Ky., printing plant before turning his gun on himself. Wesbecker, who had a history of mental problems, was taking Prozac. No one could prove Prozac caused his rampage, but by early 1991, some 350 suicides of Prozac patients had been reported to the FDA, according to one former FDA official. Those reports, which occurred outside the context of scientific clinical trials, were dismissed as anecdotal and sensational by company officials. Martin Teicher, a Harvard researcher published a study in the American Journal of Psychiatry in 1990 about six patients who developed “violent suicidal preoccupation” after taking Prozac for two to seven weeks. “It was also remarkable how violent these thoughts were,” the authors reported. “Two patients fantasized, for the first time, about killing themselves with a gun,” they wrote, while one placed a loaded gun to her head, another had to be restrained to prevent self- mutilation, and another fantasized about killing himself in a gas explosion. None of the patients was suicidal when they started taking Prozac, the researchers reported, and their fixation with violence and death abated when they stopped. Similar symptoms were noted the next year in a paper in the American Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry about six children ages 10 to 17 who developed “intense self-injurious ideation or behavior” while taking Prozac. While the Yale University authors noted the complexity of reaching any conclusion about the cause of these events, they also noted that many children taking Prozac become agitated, restless, and dis-inhibited and developed insomnia to boot.
The drug Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, loves to prescribe Cymbalta has some very bad side effects:
Cymbalta: FDA Liver Damage Warning:
Drugs Make Some Depressed People Worse Cymbalta addressed in this video:
The FDA recently completed a bulk evaluation of 372 studies involving approximately 100,000 patients and 11 antidepressants, including Lexapro, Zoloft, Prozac and Paxil. When the results are analyzed by age, it becomes clear there is an elevated risk for suicidal thoughts and behavior among adults 18 to 25 that approaches that seen in children, the FDA said in documents released before their scheduled December 13, 2006 meeting of its psychopharmacologic drugs advisory committee.
In May 2006, GlaxoSmithKline and the FDA cautioned Paxil may raise the risk of suicidal behavior in young adults too and changed the drugs label to reflect that risk.
On October 17, 2005, Eli Lilly expanded its warning about potential liver-related problems with its depression drug, Cymbalta, and cautioned doctors against prescribing it to patients with chronic liver disease, U.S. health regulators announced. The new label for the drug also contains reports of hepatitis, jaundice and other liver-related problems in patients using Cymbalta.
The FDA has recently issued a new warning about the potential for suicidal thinking in adults taking antidepressants, but the agency specifically singled out Cymbalta (generic: duloxetine) because of a higher than expected rate of suicide attempts in recent studies. Cymbalta is a relatively new antidepressant manufactured by Eli Lilly that has been associated with suicide risk since its clinical trials.
The warning comes after a review of Cymbalta by Eli Lilly; found that 11 of nearly 9,000 women taking it for urinary incontinence tried to commit suicide. The fact that these patients were suffering from urinary incontinence and not depression is significant because the drug companies have long argued that antidepressants are used by depressed people who have a higher likelihood of committing suicide.
Cymbalta has been associated with suicidal behavior since Traci Johnson, a healthy volunteer involved in a trial at Eli Lilly’s clinic at Indiana University Medical Center in Indianapolis, killed herself in one of the clinics showers. Johnson, who did not suffer from depression, was taken off the drug and given a placebo four days before she hung herself in one of the clinic’s showers on February 7, 2004. Johnson was the fifth patient to commit suicide after taking Cymbalta in clinical trials. After her death one-fifth of the volunteers have quit the Cymbalta trial.
The FDA approved Cymbalta for use as an antidepressant last August 2004 but it is not approved in the United States to treat urinary incontinence. Cymbalta is an important drug for Eli Lilly, as some analysts believe its annual revenues can reach $3 billion by 2009. Cymbalta recorded $94 million in revenues in five months that it was on the market last year and $107 million the first three months of this year. The most recent FDA warning about the risk of suicide associated with antidepressants was different in that it specifically focused on the risk to adults.
Much of the concern over suicide and antidepressants has centered on children who use the drugs. The FDA last fall determined there is a real, but small, increase in risk of suicidal behavior for children and ordered the labels of all antidepressants to say so. The FDA issued a warning that adults, too, may be at increased risk. The agency began reanalyzing hundreds of studies of the drugs to try to determine if that’s the case, and told makers to add or strengthen suicide-related warnings on their labels in the meantime. Since then, several new studies have been published in medical journals about a possible connection.
In addition to the aforementioned side effects associated with antidepressants, a new study has linked these drugs to an increased risk of death amongst patients with coronary artery disease. This study, which was conducted at Duke University, analyzed the survival rate of heart disease patients using antidepressants compared with those not using these drugs.
During an average of three years of follow-up, 21.4% of the patients taking antidepressants died compared with 12.5% of those not on antidepressants. After adjusting for demographic factors, cardiac risk factors, scores on the Beck Depression Inventory test, and the presence of other illness, antidepressant use was an independent risk factor for mortality, increasing the risk by 62%.
Researchers do not fully understand why antidepressants increase the risk of mortality in these patients. However their findings are statistically significant and show that these drugs do increase the risk of death in heart disease patients. Current and former heart disease patients should weigh the risks and benefits of antidepressants before using these medications.
