    Mod Edit: Previous thread merged with new thread!
    This web seems to be another Narconon referral business. This thread is for related information.

    There are three press releases at PRlog, the first one below:

    The material in these press releases is in the public interest because Narconon is a threat to public health. I am copying this PR content here for purposes of open debate and investigation per copyright "fair use," and for reference in case they are later deleted from the Internet.

    New Website Gives Clear and Accurate Information on the Most Prescribed Addictive Prescription Drugs

    With prescription drug addiction growing to epidemic levels and tens of thousands dying each year from overdose the people at “Get Off Meds” have created a new patient and consumer education website. It is called AddictivePrescriptions.com

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


    PRLog (Press Release) - Jul 22, 2012 -
    Prescription drugs cause most of the more than 26,000 fatal overdoses each year. Painkiller addiction has itself risen to epidemic proportions in this country with pharmacies, hospitals and physicians dispensing the equivalent of 69 tons of pure oxycodone and 42 tons of pure hydrocodone in 2010.

    However, until now, there has been no easy-to-understand place on the Internet where a patient or consumer could go to get clear and accurate information about these addictive prescriptions.

    The website AddictivePrescriptions.com was created by the people at GetOffMeds.com to fill this need.

    From antidepressants to stimulants such as Ritalin and Adderall, sedatives and painkillers this website gives information for each drug including: general information, special warnings, side effects, signs of overdose, withdrawal symptoms and signs of addiction.

    Meridith Berk, the author of AddictivePrescriptions.com, is hoping the site will help inform people of the potential risks involved with taking these addictive prescription drugs so they can better evaluate whether the benefits are worth these risks. By including withdrawal symptoms and signs of addiction patients can get an idea of whether they are becoming dependent one of these drugs.

    Knowledge of whether you are addicted is the first step toward seeking help with withdrawal.

    Studies indicate that more than nine million people are currently addicted to prescription drugs in the United States alone.

    Many people become addicted to prescription medications because they mistakenly believe these drugs are safer or less addictive than street drugs. According to the Drug Abuse Warning Network there was an 80 percent increase in prescription drug abuse across the USA within the past decade, and prescription drugs are commonly abused more than cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines.

    That makes it essential that patients at risk of addiction and their friends and loved-ones become aware of all the effects addictive prescriptions can create.

    Reading and understanding the information available on this website may be the first step toward breaking the trap of addiction.

    The website hosts a ‘live-chat’ operator which means people can get answers to their questions immediately. The site is easy to navigate as the medications are listed alphabetically and links are easy to locate.

    Consumers who feel they may have a problem with prescription medications are encouraged to visit as well the website of GetOffMeds.com.

    OMG you can submit your own AEs to the pharmaceutical company???? That won't last, they have to report to the FDA each adverse event, no way are they allowing 'anonymous' AE reports. I wonder what that phone app really does?
  11. Internetzin Member

    I had always believed that AE's had to be verified by a doctor to be reported to FDA?

    EDIT:found it, It would serve no purpose I think FDA would have to verify the individual AE, to make it take action against a manufacturer. However, floods of complaints could make a lot of people at FDA and the Pharmaceutical companies expend a lot of energy chaseing up phantom complaints.

    It is a lengthy and booooring process, and since AEs turn up in malpractice suits "Why did you prescribe that drug when it causes the blood to turn into massage oil???" no one is going to allow someone tapping an iPhone to submit a AE

    This would be a great anti-pharma black PR op:

    1. Get a bunch of people to notify the FDA of side effects for certain drugs, maybe antidepressants.
    2. At some point issue a press release about the number of people with alarming side effects for those drugs based upon the FDA database records.
    3. Scared public are scared.
    4. Getoffmeds.com to the rescue!
    5. Purif style detox.

    No it is easy to report adverse events to the FDA. I have done it. Takes 5 minutes.

    It never occurred to me until now that some group might try to game the system. But who better to game such a system than Albert Berk, SEO expert. He probably has a small army of low paid work from home minions.

    The FDA do not investigate all these complaints. But they do record them and they become part of the list of side effects on the package insert.

    I remember a few years back when the New Yorker wrote an article about Ambien making people sleepwalk and do crazy things. Is it possible this side effect is actually due to a few bogus reports? The drug was around for quite a while before the sleepwalking scare started.
  18. Internetzin Member

    Really? Surely the FDA can't just take assertions on face value. If every false AE had to be published on inserts wouldn't a shopping outing to the px become SUV mandatory.
  19. Anonymous Member

    How are you going to check if someone truly has a headache, is nauseated, has muscle aches, ringing in the ears, constipation, diarrhea, shortness of breath, blurred vision, auditory hallucinations, suicidal thoughts, etc.?

    Most side effects are unverifiable.

    Just to be clear, so far zero evidence of anyone gaming anything. I am merely noticing how easy it would be for Scientology to fuck with the FDA's side effect reporting system.

    Kinda interesting that the people sending out the press release about how to use the FDA site also publish these books:

    I feel the sudden need to tell the posting Anons:

    I love the way you guys collect any kind of information and data about the subject - no matter how unimportant it may seem at first glance - and then compile it to a whole image which is based on data and facts. It's like a huge collective brainstorming and so mighty and powerful that I'm sure the $cientologists shiver with fear. Please continue that way!

    Meanwhile we will continue to raid the shit out of the cult in Berlin, Germany and the rest of the world. And I'm sure that Anons who post here are also raiding in real life. Thanks!

    Sorry for digressing. <3

    A Ray Comfort tangent again, sorry. The only reason I'm sharing this is because it is so fucktarded. I mean, it is Tom Cruise fucktarded --i.e., unselfconscious self-asserted personal awesomeness. This mostly happens only if someone lives their life in a criticism free bubble.

    Ray Comfort apparently wrote a book with forgotten TV star Kurt Cameron about ten years ago


    Below is an excerpt from the preface written by Kurt Cameron.

    Could we supplement the title to this thread, to reflect the connection with Scientology? I didn't go into for a while, because I thought maybe someone here was just anti-prescription drugs and wanted to talk about it.
