Cleveland Kidnapping Victims
ANTIDEPRESSANT!!!! BIPOLAR DIAGNOSIS: Daughter of Cleveland abduction suspect slashed her baby’s throat and then her own in a murder/suicide attempt. She was found guilty but mentally ill.
“Emily Castro, who was 19 at the time of the attack on the baby, had a self-inflicted knife wound to her neck and wrists and tried to drown herself in a nearby creek, according to the court.
“Emily Castro tried to rely on an insanity defense but was found competent to stand trial. She was found guilty but mentally ill on January 17, 2008, court records show.
“The appeals court said Castro was diagnosed for manic depression [Bipolar] when she was 13 years old. She had a history of quitting and refusing medications and treatments for her mental illness, the court noted.”
And as the FDA has warned ANY abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis – generally manic psychosis.
WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!
The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!
