If you, as President Obama, think the violence we are seeing is a gun issue …. Think again! Take a look at this 2001 case in Japan where 8 children were stabbed to death and many more injured….You will also see why the option of overdosing on an antidepressant is not only dangerous for you, but for everyone around you. Columbine Mark Taylor joins me in this Fox news interview about several other cases you will find very interesting even if you have heard about them before, including the Wyoming mass murder case involving the Donald Schell family where Paxil was found guilty of this murder.

Who Is To Blame For All This Violence?
Obviously drug makers who put profit above patients are to blame, but WE also are to blame for allowing so called “medications” on the market which have both homicidal and suicidal ideation (compulsive thoughts and actions of both suicide and homicide and the weapons to commit either). Why is that okay?
Look at this database of thousands of documented cases of violence by those taking antidepressants: www.SSRIstories.NETAnd before anyone dismisses these cases as anecdotal evidence listen to what the Father of Psychopharmacology said below about the great importance of anecdotal evidence and read this medical report done using this database as the basis for the report: .Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) Drugs: More Risks Than Benefits?http://www.drugawareness.org/kauffman-study-selective-serotonin-reuptake-inhibitor-ssri-drugs-more-risks-than-benefits/
The Importance of Anecdotal Evidence (Patient Reports)
in Removing Drugs From the Market
People often dismiss patient reports forgetting that peer reviewed research is NOT what gets drugs pulled from the market. Its purpose is to get drugs approved, not removed. But what got Thalidomide removed from the market? It was all the cases of missing arms and legs of the babies born to the mothers of those who took the drug.
This statement on the importance of anecdotal evidence as opposed to peer reviewed double blind studies is from Dr. Johnathan Cole, MD, the father of Psychopharmacology:
“The real world is not perfect. Drugs can and do cause adverse effects which can resemble the manifestations of the illness and arguments about the causes and nature of these adverse events, including suicides, must rest on case reports [anecdotal evidence] and data collected in small studies for other purposes. . . If some cases stand out strikingly, there are logically others where the adverse effect is more subtle.”
ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A SLEEP DISORDER
KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE
The REM Sleep Disorder is what the world remains unaware of in these tragic cases where you act out nightmares. The fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with this most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.
This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.
EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE
What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study: http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/
