The Suicide Zone
Dr. Healy explains how prescription drugs can lead to suicide.
In the video, Dr. Healy also discusses the likelihood of experiencing these side effects, and the steps one should take when experiencing them. Dr. Healy encourages people to visit RxISK.org (http:/RxISK.org/suicide) if someone believes they, or someone they know, are experiencing prescription drug-induced suicidal thoughts. Here, they can discover whether others experienced the same side effect, while on the same prescription drug.
RxISK asks: Are prescription drugs to blame for school shooting?
A person who commits a school shooting is usually regarded as the perpetrator, but this may be a mistake, according to Dr. David Healy, CEO of RxISK.org.
He says the shooter is often the victim too—the victim of a prescription drug.
In the following video, Dr. Healy explains how prescription drugs can cause someone to commit a school shooting, and what must be done to help prevent this problem.
