ANTIDEPRESSANT, MUSCLE RELAXANT, ANTI-ANXIETY, & SLEEPING MEDS: Dallas Police Shooter Medicated for Symptoms of PTSD

DALLAS POLICE SHOOTING3

DALLAS POLICE SHOOTING2

“Johnson was prescribed a muscle relaxant, an antidepressant and anti-anxiety and sleep medication, and a nurse offered him tips on managing anger, records show.

He also saw a psychiatrist and was further evaluated for his PTSD symptoms in September of that year, but the physician noted that his mood was “better.”

When providers called Johnson in October 2014, he requested to put off further assessment for PTSD…”

 

The AP has just run an article discussing the medical records recently released on Micah Johnson, the Dallas Police shooter who just over a month ago on July 7 targeted and killed five Dallas Police officers before being killed. Important excerpts from that article follow below. Let me point out that Micah Johnson did not see heavy combat in Afganistan, but he returned as so many are with symptoms of PTSD which antidepressants do produce. See our Facebook group: Antidepressant-Induced PTSD  https://www.facebook.com/groups/747436358727114/

If you will recall from the following 2010 report we learned that one out of six soldiers in the Iraq/Afghanistan conflict are reportedly being prescribed antidepressants even though the majority are still in the age group of under 25 who are cautioned that doing so will increase the rate of suicidal ideation. http://www.drugawareness.org/ssris-soldiers-one-of-six-prescribed-ssris-iraqafghanistan/

“Upon his return to the U.S. nine months later, Johnson told doctors he was experiencing panic attacks a few times a week, including once while at Wal-Mart, where there was an unspecified conflict that required a police response, the records said.

“Veteran states hearing all the noises, fights and police intervening caused him to have palpitations, ‘My heart felt like someone was pinching it while it was beating fast,'” the records state. Johnson said he began shaking, felt short of breath and got chills following the Wal-Mart incident.

“….he had lower back pain and was avoiding “crowds of people and when in the public, scanning the area for danger, noting all the exits, watching everyone’s actions.”

“I feel like I can’t trust all of these strangers around me,” Johnson told his doctor, who noted that he had taken to drinking since his return to Dallas, consuming three to four shots of vodka up to three times a week. “It’s hard for me to be around other people and I am so angry and irritable.”

ANTIDEPRESSANTS SHOULD NOT BE MIXED BUT THE VA OFTEN ADDS TRAZADONE, ANOTHER ANTIDEPRESSANT, AS SLEEP AID

NAVY YARD SHOOTING2

TRAZADONE-INDUCED NAVY YARD SHOOTING

Details on this case can be found here: http://www.drugawareness.org/antidepressant-evidence-13-dead-in-washington-dc-naval-yard-shooting/

We also know that what the VA so often gives for sleep is an antidepressant thereby mixing two antidepressants together which should not be given together due to the strong potential of Serotonin Syndrome. One major example would be the case of the Navy Yard Shooter in 2013 who shot and killed 13 after being given Trazadone for sleep:   (Please see our Facebook group Trazadone Should Be Illegal  https://www.facebook.com/groups/777480962365643/)

We all know that once you are started on medications at the VA they just continue with little followup and we all know how extremely difficult it is to get off these medications once they are started. Add to that the fact that Micah Johnson was being treated by the VA North Texas Health Care System, the second largest VA health care system in the country.

From the article we learn, “In May 2014, new patients seeking mental health care at the Dallas VA faced a 50-day average wait, then the 10th longest in the nation.

“The mother of Gavin Long, the former Marine and Iraq war veteran who killed three law enforcement officers July 17 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, told PBS’ Tavis Smiley that her son had post-traumatic stress disorder and unsuccessfully sought the VA’s help.”

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: CALMING AGENTS OR DEADLY DRUGS? – www.SSRIstories.NET

SSRIstories.NET is a database of the cases our group at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has gathered over the past 2 1/2 decades, including nearly every school shooter and mass shooter in the country. The question remains in all of these cases as to the level of consciousness of the perpetrator – something that is never tested in the court cases and should be. (Tragically in this case that is no longer an option.) Testing is still back in the dark ages with blood levels of drugs rather than brain waves which will detect the level of consciousness and therefore culpability. These are drugs that accumulate in brain tissue at an alarming rate. Testing the blood tells us nothing about the level of toxicity.

 

HOW CAN THESE DRUGS CAUSE EVEN LOVING FATHERS OR MOTHERS TO KILL THOSE WHO MEAN THE MOST TO THEM IN LIFE?

Tragically the answer is simple. Antidepressants strongly impair sleep producing a disorder known as a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where you act out nightmares in a sleep state. And who gets hurt in your nightmares if not those you care about the most? Of those being diagnosed with RBD 86% are taking an antidepressant and 80% of them hurt themselves or someone else. It has long been know that this includes both murder and suicide as a result. RBD was known basically as a drug withdrawal state before the SSRI antidepressants hit the market. So having someone withdraw slowly enough to avoid serious withdrawal is key in prevention.

Take the case of Andrea Yates, also a nurse, and the third nurse in a three month period to go to court for killing her children – all while on antidepressants. The other two nurses were married to doctors. Just the day before Andrea drowned all five of her children she had two huge dosage changes in her antidepressants (which the FDA warns can produced suicide, hostility, and/or psychosis) so she was on two antidepressants, both at maximum dose when she drowned her children. Rusty Yates will tell you in a heartbeat that losing her children was Andrea’s very worst nightmare. She had even quit her nursing career so she could spend more time with them. (Also during Andrea’s second trial a female doctor in Illinois on one of the antidepressants Andrea was taking stabbed her two sons.)

 

DREAM OR REALITY???? THIS DEADLY SLEEP DISORDER IS PRODUCED BY ANTIDEPRESSANTS &

KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the 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 has long been known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. Yet this is exactly what we are told is how antidepressants produce what we are told is their “therapeutic” or beneficial effect in ridding one of depression and anxiety! See this study out of the Southern California:

ANTIDEPRESSANT WITHDRAWAL: The Most Extreme Dangers of Abrupt Discontinuation

withdrawal can be deadly

Taper vs Abrupt Withdrawal – The Importance of Avoiding Antidepressant Withdrawal via Tapering: Antidepressant withdrawal-induced mania and the REM Sleep Disorder – Dangerous Sleep Disorder Caused by Antidepressants and Long Known as a Drug Withdrawal State

ANTIDEPRESSANT WITHDRAWAL MANIC RAGE EXAMPLES

No one has screamed longer or louder about the dangers of abrupt withdrawal from an antidepressant than I have. The warning has run across the top of our websites from the day any of them were created. Everyone else has always recommended a more rapid withdrawal than I have. My CD on safe withdrawal goes for an hour and a half and contains all we have learned over the past 25 years on safe withdrawal with more information on these drugs than you will find in most books out there on these drugs and is available for download at: https://store.drugawareness.org/product/help-i-cant-get-off-my-antidepressant-mp3-download/

After the FDA hearings in 2004 they placed the Black Box Warnings for increased potential of suicide for youth. At that point the FDA warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether going up or down in the dose, can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. The following deadly reactions are the main reason I have been so adamant about a very, very slow, very, very gradual withdrawal from antidepressants. Here is one example of a woman going into a manic rage after missing only ONE dose of her Cymbalta….

http://www.bizpacreview.com/2013/07/29/video-of-woman-going-nuts-over-fender-bender-goes-viral-80598

Now can you imagine, after watching this, what society will be facing if there is ever a reason people cannot get their antidepressants??? This actually happens all the time for various reasons – the profound memory loss the drugs produce, sudden insurance cancellation, paperwork such as in the military where it can take some time for papers to catch up with you or family members in a transfer, going to jail for any reason where they are notorious for abruptly pulling your medications to give you one they make money on, etc.

Although I thought the guy filming her in this video was rather rude and stupid to continue filming her (you NEVER want to treat someone in withdrawal from these meds this way unless you just got a heck of a deal on a coffin!). What I found most shocking is that she seems to be aware how much of a danger she can be in withdrawal as she almost immediately warned the officer that she had skipped her pill that day and could be a serious problem for him even mentioning that she has been known to break arms?! Most patients are aware of this potential manic rage and expect others to understand that. Look at Eric Harris at Columbine. He was threatening to drop off his Luvox in order to “fuel the rage” he felt he needed to accomplish the shooting at Columbine. (There is no indication he did that as his levels of the drug were normal levels in toxicology, but he knew very well the rage withdrawal could produce.

We had a local case a few years ago when I was living in Utah where it was reported that a woman ripped three police officers to shreds. Of course the comments on the article about it were making fun of the officers since three of them could not take a woman down. I called and asked to speak with the officers because I knew exactly what happened – they ran into a woman trying to come off her meds too rapidly. Sure enough…after I explained the super human strength that can come from the adrenalin rushes produced by the abrupt withdrawal the officer did confirm that she was attempting to withdraw from her Paxil. And his almost breathless statement was, “Yeah, she was sure strong!”

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF MANIC RAGE: Another example of a woman who had been going on and off her medications – a way that FAR TOO MANY doctors seem to think is a safe way to come off antidepressants – on one day, off the next, etc. or using what they call the Prozac Bridge. This is where you drop the one you are on to go on Prozac with the sadly mistaken idea that it is easier to get off of. As a result  you go into abrupt withdrawal from one drug and begin adjusting to yet another which you will have to withdraw from later and go through this all over again – thus creating two traumas for your poor brain to recover from rather than just the one. One other concern about that process is contained in internal company documents most have no access to unless they have filed a lawsuit giving them access which is that apparently serotonin initially goes UP in withdrawal ( may be from the antidepressant beginning to flush from the system) which would give a greater concern for the possibility of Serotonin Syndrome when you are adding yet another antidepressant to the first and including the serotonin increase from the abrupt withdrawal. Obviously that needs to be studied, but do not expect drug companies to pay for that research which will clearly cut their sales!

ANTIDEPRESSANT WITHDRAWAL MANIA HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED AS BEING CAUSED BY

ABRUPT WITHDRAWAL FROM AN ANTIDEPRESSANT

As I mentioned earlier after the FDA hearings in 2004 they placed the Black Box Warnings for increased potential of suicide for youth. At that point the FDA warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether going up or down in the dose, can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. When you switch drugs you are making two abrupt changes in dose coming off one and increasing and adjusting to a new one – very deadly potential reactions in doing that. I wish people understood the damage caused by abrupt withdrawal. Because of the shock to the brain from pulling a substance abruptly from it that it has adjusted all of its chemicals to that drug being in the mix it can trigger seizure activity within the brain. Seizure activity produces brain damage. That is why I have always said patients need to sneak very slowly and carefully away from these drugs thus avoiding withdrawal as much as possible so as to not trigger the REM Sleep Disorder, Antidepressant Withdrawal Rage or Antidepressant Withdrawal Mania. If you have attempted cold turkey withdrawal before you need to consider how many times you have potentially suffered brain damage through cold turkey or abrupt withdrawal.

Keep in mind that abrupt withdrawal is not much different than coming off a tall mountaintop in one jump as opposed to  coming down off that mountain one baby step at a time. It is more than obvious which is preferable. And would you not treat the injuries incurred in that jump if you landed halfway down that mountain before you continue to make your way on down to the bottom? Of course you would! I recommend going to our site www.drugawareness.org/alternatives to see what others have found over the past 25 years to help them recover from those injuries. You need to work with your body and brain to assist them in this recovery. What I consider the most important alternatives in preventing these serious reactions are first the changing of one’s diet to avoid ANY stimulant, Noni juice, Relaxese, and a Calcium/Magnesium supplement like CALMS along with various essential aromatherapy oils which are apparently so effective that the FDA will no longer allow me to share even personal experiences with you while they have 4000 pages of studies on them on government sites!

Now to give you an idea of what antidepressant withdrawal mania could involve so you can see why you would never ever want to experience it I invite you to visit our Facebook group Antidepressant-induced Bipolar & Schizophrenia at:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1605446559734283/

And also  listen to me discuss that in three whole minutes (as that is all the time they gave any of us) with the FDA in their 2006 hearing on increasing their warnings of suicide to those under the age of 25:

http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

REM SLEEP DISORDER (RBD) – A DANGEROUS SLEEP DISORDER IN WHICH ONE ACTS OUT NIGHTMARES

DURING WHICH 80% HURT THEMSELVES OR SOMEONE ELSE – INCLUDES MURDER & SUICIDE

withdrawal

Eli Lilly, the makers of the antidepressants Prozac and Cymbalta, had a nightmare on their hands right after our first FDA hearing in February of 2004 when they learned for themselves just how deadly the withdrawal from antidepressants can be. Nineteen year old Traci Johnson was a test subject in their laboratory taking their new antidepressant Cymbalta to test the drug on healthy volunteers to learn of its toxic effects. After taking Cymbalta for 20 days Traci was weaned off over only a four day period. She was then found hanging from the shower rod in the laboratory.  A full report of what happened can be found here: http://www.rense.com/general66/tradesecret.htm

After this death in their own laboratory it was reported that Eli Lilly doubled the length of their withdrawal for patients coming off Cymbalta. So it went to a length of time we have generally found to be safe over the past 25 years as we have warned that one should take about half the amount of time on one of these drugs to wean off and a little over a year for each five years on antidepressants.

Was Traci suffering RBD when she hung herself? Because it has long been known mainly as a drug withdrawal state the chances are high that she did. During normal REM sleep the muscles in the body become paralyzed and only keeps the necessary functions of the body working such as respiration, heart beat, etc. There are a small group of cells in the brain stem that control REM (dreaming sleep). When these cells become injured or diseased, people do not experience the muscle paralysis associated with REM sleep, which can lead to REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD)-a serious condition in which the afflicted violently act out their dreams.
In this sleep state known as RBD, people have been known, not only to drive, but to do things completely uncharacteristic of themselves such as fight like a military person although never serving in the military, become promiscuous, but also even to murder those close to them and to take their own lives in this sleep state. Murder and suicide have long been known to be a symptom of REM sleep disorder. This is an unconscious state without normal inhibitions and full of automatic behavior based on whatever dream you may be having. This link http://www.oddee.com/item_96680.aspx will show you some of the MANY possibilities when you are acting out your dreams or nightmares while experiencing RBD.
At drugawareness.org we have many of these types of cases which were induced by the use of antidepressants. Keep in mind that the most common side effect of antidepressants is insomnia, especially in withdrawal, so those in antidepressant withdrawal often have their chances of experiencing RBD increased by being prescribed drugs similar to Ambien.http://www.3news.co.nz/…/…/423/articleID/308999/Default.aspx
Over 80% of those who go into RBD hurt themselves or others. I have one book I have written on RBD and am finishing up an ebook now.

Although rare in the past we are seeing more and more of this deadly disorder. While drugs similar to Zolpidem (Ambien) are found in 3% of these cases what few are aware of is the research by America’s two foremost experts on this disorder showing that 86% of the cases they are diagnosing with RBD are patients currently taking an antidepressant. But because RBD has long been known as a “drug withdrawal state” the risk of RBD in antidepressant withdrawal or Zolpidem and similar drugs could be far greater!
The worst of this disorder is when it is a nightmare you are experiencing when you go into this sleepwalk state. For two decades I have listened to people repeat over and over to me after coming safely off an antidepressant, “I acted out my worst nightmare on this drug!” And, as I testified before the FDA, this previously rare sleep disorder of RBD is exactly what comedian Phil Hartman’s wife experienced when she shot her famous husband under the influence of two serotogenic drugs: Zoloft and Ultram (Tramadol).

Anyone is hing additional information on this most dangerous sleep disorder can find it in our Facebook group Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder at:

https://m.facebook.com/groups/106704639660883?ref=m_notif&notif_t=group_r2j

or in Chapter 7 of my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare, available at:

https://store.drugawareness.org/product/prozac-panacea-or-pandora-our-serotonin-nightmare-2014-ebook-download/

As we are always searching for faster ways to come off these deadly antidepressants in a safe manner we encourage you to continue to check our DrugAwareness.org/alternatives page for any new information we have on that. There has to be a safe way to do that but as yet in 25 years of searching there is still no way I have found to come down rapidly. There are some things that can really help to speed things up, but after having someone who attempted to come down twice as fast as what we have found to be safe of half the amount of time on to wean off or in longer term use taking a little over a year for each five years on the drugs (add any use of any antidepressant to determine period of use NOT just the time on the current medication) I do not feel safe in suggesting it. She continued to assure me she was fine and after a year of withdrawing, after ten years on Zoloft, a month or so off the drug she got up early one morning (REM Sleep Disorder) and took a baseball bat to her husband, her childhood sweetheart, and had no recall of what she had done. He gave her two options: jail or a hospital. She spent 30 days in a psychiatric hospital at the cost of $30,000 and came out of there back on Zoloft and five other medications she had to wean down off. Was taking one more year to wean that bad in comparison? I think not!

The only hope I have seen in coming down faster would be in the video testimonies on our Alternatives page at drugawareness.org and a documentary movie “May I Be Frank” where a man on antidepressants for 10 years was taken off Effexor and quite a few other medications and suffering from diabetes is brought down rapidly by a group of young men attempting to help him with his health. They put him on an extremely strict raw food Vegan diet, had him medically monitored throughout, gave him massive amounts of wheat grass juice, and did regular colonics, etc. (Watch the movie for all the details.) It was very miraculous, but I do not know many who could feasibly do that and continue their normal routines in life although I think it important for people to know it can possibly be done this way. This man did have a relapse though a year or two later as it was too fast a withdrawal even with all those helps but it was mild enough that he was able to pull out of that and get back on track. He would have been much better off seeing Dr. Gabriel Cousins at the Tree of Life Center for this but obviously they really did not know what they were getting into with antidepressant withdrawal as most do not. His change is absolutely amazing though! These young men clearly saved Frank’s life! See Frank’s story here:

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: TEN DEAD, TWO MURDER/SUICIDES IN “SHORT” FAMILIES IN LESS THAN A YEAR

 

In this September 2014, photo, Willow Short is pictured center at four months old, along with her parents Megan and Mark and sister then six-year-old sister Liana and three-year-old brother Mark

Mark and Megan Short Family

This morning the nation learned that Mark Short (40) and his wife Megan (33) and their three small children, 8-year-old Liana, 5-year-old Mark and 2-year-old Willow were all found shot in another murder/suicide. Two families by the last name of Short dead in less than a year due to an antidepressant-induced murder/suicide. (Were they possibly related?) The family had been in the news the past couple of years due to the youngest child Willow being one of the youngest heart transplant cases in the country getting a new heart only six days after birth.

The family (pictured) were found dead on Thursday in different rooms of their luxury home

Brian & Karen Short Family

Next month it will be a year ago the nation learned that in Minnesota Brian Short, 45, head of the online group for nurses Allnurses.com, had shot his entire family – his wife Karen Short, 48, and their three children – Cole, 17, Madison, 15, and Brooklyn, 14, before shooting himself. A week later the news came out that Brian was taking an antidepressant – drugs which include warnings of suicidal and homicidal obsessive compulsive thoughts and actions.

 

Willow Short (pictured) had survived a heart-transplant for two years before she was killed along with her parents and two siblings in an apparent murder-suicide on Saturday

Willow’s Heart Journey featured on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WillowsHeartJourney

WHO WAS THE SHOOTER IN THE PA MURDER/SUICIDE?

In this case, although it has not yet been announced yet, all day I have had the feeling that the shooter was Megan. Although we yet await that confirmation and it is clear that both parents had been through so much and either of them could have been medicated for that kind of trauma. But after authorities seemed to be holding back what was in the suicide note left behind and the not disclosing whose body the gun was found near….People still have trouble believing that women can be this violent – something that really stood out for me as I began gathering these antidepressant-induced tragedies. Well I just got confirmation on the 10:00 local news in PA that I may be correct as they stated that Megan was open on her Facebook page about suffering PTSD from all they went through with baby Williow’s heart transplant and was taking medication for it.  “Megan Short said anxiety over her daughter’s condition had left her with post-traumatic stress disorder. She said she suffered from “anxiety and nightmares” triggered by smells, hallways or even the beeping sound of a phone. She also said she experienced “survivor’s guilt” when children with similar problems from other families passed away. I don’t think PTSD ever truly goes away but, with therapy, medication, and the right support, I have begun to loosen its grip on me,” … “As I work on my own mental healing, I wanted to share my experience so that other heart parents know they are not alone.”  What they give in the way of medication for PTSD is an antidepressant. Which is ironic considering PTSD is so often caused by antidepressants. There is a Facebook group titled “Antidepressant-Induced PTSD” located at https://www.facebook.com/groups/747436358727114/

According to an excellent investigative report posted at http://heavy.com/news/2016/08/mark-short-megan-willow-sinking-spring-pennsylvania-liana-murder-suicide-family-heart-transplant-prescription-drugs-facebook-photos/ Megan said she was on Paxil.

SINKING SPRINGS, PA WHERE PAXIL HAS HEARTS SINKING ONCE AGAIN

In this PA murder/suicide of the Mark Short family as I said when they withheld mentioning what was in the suicide note and which of the two adults the gun was found near I immediately thought of a case I am very familiar with in Flower Mound, TX. In that case in yet another affluent neighborhood as all three of these were, Andrea Roberts, 41, shot her sleeping husband Michael, 41, and two young children Micayla, 11, and Dylan, 7, before shooting herself only two weeks after starting on the antidepressant Zoloft. Andrea left a rambling suicide note about how she had to kill her family and herself because they all had AIDS. Of course their the autopsies showed none of them had any sign of AIDS. But the extremely vivid nightmares produced by these drugs, which patients say are more real to them than reality, become their new reality and they begin to question what is real. In Andrea’s mind it had become real that they all had AIDS and her only choice was to shoot everyone.

Such are the horrific delusions brought on by these drugs…a new reality that produces these real life nightmares that no one who knows them can believe are real. In Megan Short’s case she was on the drug I refer to as Prozac #3, Paxil. It has horrific withdrawal and is the same drug found to be responsible in the mass murder/suicide of the Donald Schell family in Gillette,  WY in which the jury found only two pills mainly responsible in a wrongful death suit and awarded $6.4 Million to the two remaining family members. It happened in February of 1998 just a few months before I was in Western Wyoming on a Paxil-induced murder case where a woman shot her husband while he slept and had no memory of it. All she knew was that she when she was conscious of where she was and what was going on her husband was lying in his bed with a gunshot through his head and she was standing at the top of the stairs with a “smoking gun” in her hand. So she said, “I figured I must have done it so I walked over to the sheriff’s office and turned myself in. While there for her trial I learned of the Donald Schell case in Eastern Wyoming and contacted the woman in Jerry Spence’s office (the famous cowboy attorney with the leather jacket who was the one attorney interviewed throughout the OJ Simpson case which also involved one of these drugs, Prozac.  According to OJ’s best friend if OJ committed the killing of his wife and friend, Prozac was the reason it happened.) who was working with the family in the Donald Schell murder/suicide.

Donald Schell was a non-violent family man and a doting grandfather, who after being prescribed Paxil took only two pills over a two day period. After that second dose he got up in the middle of the night and took a .22 caliber pistol and a 357 magnum and shot and killed the three people he loved the most in the world – his wife Rita, his daughter Deb and his only grand-baby Alyssa. He then shot himself. These are only a handful of cases that are related to these drugs which is why there is a Facebook group titled: Paxil (Paroxetine, Seroxat) Should Be Illegal located at this link:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/370289153168180/

There were other indications Paxil was taking its toll on Megan. They mentioned marital issues between Mark and Megan. Those marital issues according to additional documentation on the Heavy.com link above was that she had left her husband for a while for an affair with another transplant mom. This is something we often see in cases involving antidepressants. According to some more recent scientific research serotonin is what determines sexual preference. And beyond that 2000 scientists joined together in the year 2000 to voice their grave concerns that male fish were being born with ovaries due to their exposure to Prozac in the water supply. http://www.alternet.org/speakeasy/martharosenberg/drug-store-your-tap-water-and-fish-prozac

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: CALMING AGENTS OR DEADLY DRUGS? – www.SSRIstories.NET

SSRIstories.NET is a database of the cases our group at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has gathered over the past 2 1/2 decades, including nearly every school shooter and mass shooter in the country. The question remains in all of these cases as to the level of consciousness of the perpetrator – something that is never tested in the court cases and should be. (Tragically in this case that is no longer an option.) Testing is still back in the dark ages with blood levels of drugs rather than brain waves which will detect the level of consciousness and therefore culpability. These are drugs that accumulate in brain tissue at an alarming rate. Testing the blood tells us nothing about the level of toxicity.

 

HOW CAN A LOVING FATHER OR MOTHER KILL THOSE WHO MEAN THE MOST TO THEM IN LIFE?

Tragically the answer is simple. Antidepressants strongly impair sleep producing a disorder known as a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where you act out nightmares in a sleep state. And who gets hurt in your nightmares if not those you care about the most? Of those being diagnosed with RBD 86% are taking an antidepressant and 80% of them hurt themselves or someone else. It has long been know that this includes both murder and suicide as a result. RBD was known basically as a drug withdrawal state before the SSRI antidepressants hit the market. So having someone withdraw slowly enough to avoid serious withdrawal is key in prevention.

Take the case of Andrea Yates, also a nurse, and the third nurse in a three month period to go to court for killing her children – all while on antidepressants. The other two nurses were married to doctors. Just the day before Andrea drowned all five of her children she had two huge dosage changes in her antidepressants (which the FDA warns can produced suicide, hostility, and/or psychosis) so she was on two antidepressants, both at maximum dose when she drowned her children. Rusty Yates will tell you in a heartbeat that losing her children was Andrea’s very worst nightmare. She had even quit her nursing career so she could spend more time with them. (Also during Andrea’s second trial a female doctor in Illinois on one of the antidepressants Andrea was taking stabbed her two sons.)

 

DREAM OR REALITY???? THIS DEADLY SLEEP DISORDER PRODUCED BY ANTIDEPRESSANTS &

KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the 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 out of the Southern California:

19 DEAD 25 WOUNDED IN KNIFE ATTACK

“A knife-wielding man broke into a facility for the disabled in a small town near Tokyo early on Tuesday and killed 19 patients as they slept….

“The suspect was a 26-year-old former employee of the facility who gave himself up to police. The man, Satoshi Uematsu, said in letters he wrote in February that he could “obliterate 470 disabled people”, Kyodo news agency reported.

“He said he would kill 260 severely disabled people at two areas in the facility during a night shift, and would not hurt employees.

“My goal is a world in which the severely disabled can be euthanized, with their guardians’ consent, if they are unable to live at home and be active in society,” Uematsu wrote in the two letters given to the speaker of the lower house of parliament, Kyodo reported.

“Uematsu was committed to hospital after he expressed a “willingness to kill severely disabled people”, an official in Sagamihara told Reuters. He was freed on March 2 after a doctor deemed he had improved, the official said.”

Police officers and rescue workers are seen in a facility for the disabled, where at least 19 people were killed and as many as 20 wounded by a knife-wielding man, in Sagamihara, Kanagawa prefecture, Japan, in this photo taken by Kyodo July 26, 2016. Mandatory credit Kyodo/via REUTERS

   Brief History of SSRI Antidepressants in Japan

In April 1999 the Japanese version of our Associated Press sent a reporter over to spend a week with me in Salt Lake City after he had read my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? because Japan was about to approve the first SSRI in that country. He arrived only a few days after Columbine happened. While he was visiting I was scheduled to do a radio show at KTKK in Salt Lake so I invited him along. In the middle of doing that show we learned which antidepressant Eric Harris was taking at the time of the Columbine shooting – Luvox, the same SSRI that Japan was about to approve! Needless to say there was certainly a look of shock on his face as we got that news. I heard from him within a few weeks after he returned home to Japan as he wrote to let me know that there had been a case in Japan involving antidepressants where a man on the drugs stabbed a pilot to death and took over a plane in flight. More information on that case can be found in our database of documented cases www.SSRIstories.NET where you will see the antidepressant was used in his defense of that murder:  http://ssristories.net/archive/show1dd2.html?item=607

Then in 2001 there was another terrible mass stabbing in Japan in an attack by a man who admitted taking extra antidepressants before attacking and stabbing to death 8 small children. This can happen when someone takes extra pills thinking they are not yet feeling the depression lift or it can also be the tragic outcome of a suicidal overdose attempt.

When we 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.NET And 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/

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.”

Tragically it appears that these deadly drugs have continued to disrupt the peace of the country of Japan as so many others now as well.

CYMBALTA: Canadian Man in Bathrobe Kills One, Wounds One At Election Celebration

Richard Bain Arrest

“It’s totally different from my character. All my life I worked and helped other people.”

Please read at least this part of this article to see how this poor man became so manic on Cymbalta. Why did no one catch such blatantly obvious manic behavior, indicating a serious toxic reaction to this drug, BEFORE this fatal tragedy?!! If it was subtle hypomanic behavior that would be one thing but this is clearly extreme manic behavior with the wild spending, wild promiscuous behavior, cravings for alcohol, etc. For more information on this antidepressant side effect see my 2006 presentation to the FDA, my DVD “Bipolar, Are You Misdiagnosed Due to the Use of or Abrupt Discontinuation of an Antidepressant? and come to our Facebook group Antidepressant-Induced Bipolar and Schizophrenia:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1605446559734283/

BLAMES ANTIDEPRESSANT CYMBALTA

“Richard Bain claimed that he was a responsible, hard-working, caring person but his character changed after taking the anti-depressant Cymbalta in 2009.

“He said he broke off a 20-year relationship with his girlfriend and began visiting strip bars every night, hiring prostitutes and quickly burning through an inheritance and savings of $900,000.

“He told the court he spent a lot of money on “limousines, the best of wine, champagne, strippers.”

“With Cymbalta, you don’t think correctly,” he testified later. “I had all the energy in the world. Things come to my mind and I do it. You don’t think things out. It makes you not responsible.”

“He said video footage of him at the shooting scene wearing a blue bathrobe and ski mask, yelling “The English are waking up,” as police led him away, was unrecognizable. “It’s totally different from my character. All my life I worked and helped other people,” he said. Asked what could explain the change, he said: “To me it was the medications.”

“Bain testified that he had no memory of opening fire outside the celebrations. As the defence opened at his trial for the first-degree murder of lighting technician Denis Blanchette and the attempted murder of stagehand David Courage….

“On Sept. 4, 2012, provincial election day, Bain testified that he drove to Montreal to visit his sister-in-law in hospital and he became upset because she was suffering while she waited for an operation. As he was leaving at around 6:30 p.m., he asked his brother where the Metropolis concert hall was, because he heard that the PQ election-night party would be there. He said he decided to take a look out of curiosity, and he drove by it in his GMC Yukon three times before leaving. That, he told the jury, is where his memory of the day ends. He said his sister-in-law’s suffering affected him deeply.

AN ADDITIONAL EIGHT PILLS CONSUMED BEFORE SHOOTING?!!!

“My depression that day came over me like a wave,” he testified. He said that in addition to his regular dose of one 60 mg Cymbalta capsule taken in the morning, he downed at least eight more after leaving the hospital.

“Shown video footage of his vehicle arriving behind the Metropolis shortly before midnight, of a figure leaving the vehicle and approaching the concert hall’s rear entrance and of his subsequent arrest as police pinned him to the ground, he said he had no memory of the events.”

This reminds me so much of one of the very first cases I worked on in the early 90’s. A teen in Florida living with a couple of friends had become depressed and knew that one of his friends had a bottle of Zoloft sitting on top of the fridge she had decided she did not want to take. He knew it was for depression so he took one to see if it would help. When he did not feel less depressed after 15 minutes he took another, and after 15 more minutes he took another.

After taking eight pills he has no memory of what happened. But the official police record shows that he met a homeless man and stabbed him 100 times with a screwdriver. Last I knew he was given a sentence of life in prison for murder.

It is just so sad that such dangerous drugs are prescribed so freely and with so little concern and are sitting around people’s homes where anyone has access to them with little to no warning of how deadly they can be!!!

History of Mental Illness: Elderly Man Sets Self on Fire, Rams Car Into Police Station

A MAN after he set himself on fire drove his flaming vehicle filled with gas bombs into the Merrylands police station’s underground carpark. No one else was injured in the car-bomb attack when the man rammed the vehicle into the carpark about 7pm. Amazingly he survived and is in custody.

At least it appears that police officers in Australia recognize insanity when they see it instead of jumping on the terrorist bandwagon!!! “It is understood he is well-known to police, but has no known links to terror groups.”

…”Assistant Commissioner Denis Clifford said although they do not believe he has any links to terror groups, they are “keeping an open mind” throughout the investigation.

“Initial inquiries suggest there are no links to any groups,” he said.

It is absolutely amazing that the bombs did not go off and this man survived! Elevated serotonin has long been associated with pyromania (fire starting). If on one of these drugs, and with a history of mental illness it would be an even bigger miracle if he had not been given either an antidepressant or an atypical antipsychotic which both increase levels of serotonin, he and his family deserve to know the truth about what really happened to him!

DIABETES? OFF INSULIN IN ONLY ONE MONTH!!! (VIDEO)

 

Shooting insulininsulin bottle

 

AN EXCELLENT VIDEO EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH!

I am sure you have all heard the insulin excuse used for a reason to continue to take antidepressants for years. “Would you have someone stop taking insulin?” Keep in mind that this story came from Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac AND the largest distributor of insulin. As a result they are making lots and lots and lots of money because the longer you stay on an antidepressant the greater the chances are that you will develop diabetis as a side effect and think you then will need insulin for life.  So this is one piece of information you really need in your arsenal of responses to this argument which I have waited far too long to find a minute to share with you.

THE TREE OF LIFE CENTER & DR. GABRIEL COUSINS

The Tree of Life Center US was set up by Dr. Gabriel Cousins, a psychiatrist from back East. In my opinion Dr. Cousins is one of the most brilliant healers of our day! I have followed his work for years. He is also among the first medical professionals to order a copy of my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?, when it first came out in the mid 90’s

With current conditions…

… the huge  increase of sugar consumption jumping from 5 pounds per person per year in the early 1900’s to 180 pounds per person each year currently

… so many eating so many dairy products that greatly contribute to the number of diabetics

….the high consumption of aspartame (a serotonergic chemical)

… the high consumption of serotonergic chemicals like antidepressants and many other psychiatric drugs (which drop  sugar levels leading to both hypoglycemia and then diabetes)

…our nation is now inundated with those who have pancreatic damage manifesting in many varied blood sugar issues, and especially diabetes. (And if you have read my book you know I would add Anxiety, Depression and Bipolar Disorder to that list of blood sugar issues.)

I am excited that Dr. Gabriel Cousins is focusing on this issue to show people that dietary changes CAN make these people healthy again. Insulin is NOT something people have to continue taking which will only cut their lives far shorter and kill them in the end! In speaking with a friend this past week he said his father is now taking TEN medications, including antidepressants and anti seizure medications, so the father’s diabetes is so bad that he has to take a shot every time he eats! If I had to do that I would lose every meal I had just eaten because that is the way I react to needles. Why would anyone choose to live that way when less than a month at Dr. Cousin’s center can put that all behind you?

WATCH THE VIDEO OF GETTING RID OF INSULIN IN ONLY A MONTH

Please share this with all those who need to know there is hope of recovery. Contrary to what Pharma would have you believe no one NEEDS insulin! There are God given, natural ways to overcome disease! Never give up hope of finding those ways to heal yourself of anything!

MEDS? Dallas Police Shooting: Ron Paul Asking The Right Questions

dallas police shooting3

 

Once again a vet is behind violence…why so much of it among vets?…why so many suicides among vets? (Last count it was 22 per day committing suicide with those deaths going over the number killed in combat for the past seven years now.) It can all be traced right back to the mass drugging of our military and continued drugging of the vets by the VA once they return home. For years we have had reports of vets being given up to 20 drugs a day – most of them mind altering. And this has been going on for at least two and a half decades. (You can go to our database of thousands of cases like today’s shooting at www.SSRIstories.NET to find more of these mass shootings by vets all on these deadly drugs known to produce violence and suicide.)

At least one politician, Ron Paul, knows enough to ask the right questions. Had Ron Paul been elected in 2008 these drugs may have been off the market before this shooting today and before oh so many others thereby saving many lives. What a shame!

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO

INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the 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. Feel free to join us on Facebook to learn more about this disorder on our Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/106704639660883/

URGENT TODAY!!! STOP HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis!!!!!

Baby and Pups

Baby With His Safe and Effective Antidepressants

Although it is rare that I send information out from another group, in this instance I believe this is such a critical subject and such a tragic situation worldwide currently that MUST be not only addressed but must be stopped dead in its tracks! The drugging of infants and toddlers with mind altering medications! Within the past couple of weeks  I have seen the most recent stats out of  New Zealand forwarded  region by region. And what I found the most shocking was the HUGE jump in the use of mind altering medications among this young age group!!!! They went from double to ten times an increase in numbers depending upon the region!

This bill being voted on today could do that same here in America. There is no valid excuse for this drugging of infants!  It needs to stop!  The summer of 1998 I wrote an article  titled, The Next Generation Medical Guinea Pigs–Our Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil Babies,  which ran in both of the major newspapers in Salt Lake City, the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News because this insane prescribing of these drugs to infants and toddlers began there in the early 90’s.  That article from nearly two decades ago can be found on our website at the following link:  http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-babies/

LIST OF CONGRESSIONAL COSPONSORS FOR THIS BILL

Here is a list of Congressional cosponsors of the bill state by state who likely have no idea whatsoever what it is they are actually supporting. It would be a good idea to contact all of them to wake them up to what these drugs are doing to our society and our future: https://www.congress.gov/…/house-bill/2646/cosponsors

PLEASE CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN TODAY BEFORE VOTE THIS AFTERNOON

As you may know, a highly controversial bill, HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis” is going to the House of Representative floor for a vote, tomorrow, July 6th and 1:30 pm Eastern Time.

The entire bill is designed to benefit the mental health industry, and not the general public.   Given the late notice on this bill going to the floor, we are asking all supporters to email their Congressional Representatives on just one major flaw of a massively flawed bill,   the section focusing on labeling and drugging children.

Specifically, HR 2646: “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis”

Includes a section that focuses on increasing mental health treatment for infants and young children birth to 5 years of age.

The bill provides grants to train pediatric primary care providers to identify, diagnose, treat, and refer children with mental illness (there are no objective medical tests to diagnose any mental illness) and to develop programs for infants and children under 5 years of age who are at risk of developing a mental illness, show early signs of mental illness, or have been diagnosed with a mental illness.

Subtitle C, Sec. 399Z-2 “Infants and Early Childhood Mental Health Promotion, Intervention, and Treatment” provides for a statewide network of psychiatrists to provide “telehealth” consultations to pediatricians. This is dangerous, given the current standard treatment in the mental health field is psychotropic drugs. Children’s brains are still developing until the age of 24.

Already in the U.S., 1 million infants and young children birth to 5 years of age in America are on a psychotropic drug, according to the latest figures from IMS Health.   You can view the total number of children on psychiatric drugs here with the figures from IMS Health

Please vote against HR 2646; it may do more harm than help.  You can find the emails for your Congressmen herehttp://www.contactingthecongress.org/

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA and GABE!!!

God bless America

From my good friend Karol Truman, author of the incredible book I have long highly recommended, Feelings Buried Alive, Never Die, is her son Dan Truman’s group, Diamond Rio, singing  one of the best songs for the fourth of July ever! In God We Still Trust!

Karol asked me tonight as I was putting this together to send out to please share this prayer for our country today:

Dear Beloved God in Heaven,

Please give us a president that loves this country and everything it stands for.

Please give us a president who respects You as the one true God.

Please give us a president who will, with Your help, restore this nation to its former glory, the way You created her.

Please help us to respect what You have given to us and not take anything for granted ever again.

Please God, weaken the evil and strengthen the good, both within and without.

May our eyes be opened.

In Jesus’ name,  Amen!

As never before in the history of this country has this plea been so necessary.
In God We Still Trust and we pray that GOD WILL BLESS AMERICA!!!!

And I would add that He bless us to be free from the scourge of these deadly serotonergic drugs being passed off as “medications”!!!

 

Diamond Rio, In God We Still Trust

Now from Karol’s son Dan and Diamond Rio…….

And Happy Birthday to my Fourth of July grandson Gabe!!!!!! Happy #8  Gabe!!!! You are growing up too fast!!! I love you!
