1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Le Anne Westover Testifies of Husband Del Shannon’s Prozac Suicide

Le Anne Westover - Dell Shannon

Le Anne Westover & Husband, Charles (Del Shannon)

Everyone needs to hear these testimonies presented to the FDA in September of 1991 on the subject antidepressants causing suicide and violence. The FDA chose to ignore these testimonies that day leading to many more deaths since. My dear friend featured here, Le Anne Westover, lost her husband Charles, also known as the popular singer Del Shannon, in only two weeks to a violent Prozac-induced suicide. His senseless death, along with so many others documented both in these testimonies and this database www.ssristories.NET should NEVER be forgotten!!!

Please listen to Le Anne’s testimony here:
https://youtu.be/FiF4Pd6rat8

The following is a transcript of LeAnne’s testimony to the FDA that day:

DR. CASEY: Next is Mrs. Del Shannon, please.

MS. SHANNON: Lee Ann Westover.

DR. CASEY: Excuse me, are you Mrs. Del Shannon?

MS. SHANNON: I am Mrs. Del Shannon, yes. I am the widow Del Shannon. My husband 1990. On the evening of of Charles Westover, also known as was given Prozac on January 24 of February 8, 1990, he killed himself. I am told his death was instantaneous, but I believe his death actually began the moment he took his first dose of Prozac.

Before Prozac, my husband was very involved with people, our family, and his work. He was very much in charge of his business. But within days after he started taking Prozac I noticed a personality change in him. He showed signs of restlessness, akathisia, agitation, pacing, and his appearance was very drawn. He developed severe insomnia, extreme fatigue, chills, racing heart, dry mouth, and upset stomach. His hands would shake uncontrollably at times.

This really alarmed him. I would ask him what was wrong and his only reply was, “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

At this time my husband’s career was better than ever. He was just finishing a new album and was at his utmost creative peak. Many good things were happening in his life.

On January 24, he saw a doctor for counseling, as changes were happening rapidly. Due to these changes, he went to a doctor because he was experiencing some stress. He was given Prozac. Two weeks later I found him dead in our home. He told me, when he came home from the doctor, that he was given a new drug, “It’s not even a drug, it’s a chemical, it’s very safe. It’s supposed to help me over the hump I’m in.” The drug was Prozac.

Charles was very much against suicide. He counseled people against suicide. To him, and I quote “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” I want you to know suicide was totally out of character for my husband.

There was no note. The day he died he had made appointments for afternoon and evening. He had booked future and no kiss goodbye.

On February 8, my daughter and I were going to the market. He asked for some vitamins and other items that he wanted from the market. He kissed me, smiled, and we said, “See you later.” There was absolutely no warning of suicide or anything violent.

I know with absolute certainty that if Charles had any idea of the side effects of Prozac he would never have taken it. This drug is most assuredly responsible for any torment or suffering and the eventual suicide of my husband. I want people to be aware of what can happen when you take this drug Prozac.

Thank you.

DR CASEY : Thank you.

Rest in Peace Del…you are not forgotten!

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Suicide & Suicide Attempt by Pharmacist Maria Malakoff

Maria Malakoff

Maria warned back in 1991 that the day would come that every family in America would be affected by antidepressants if the FDA did not issue warnings. Tragically her statement has proved prophetic!

I would like to introduce you to my dear friend Maria Malakoff. Everyone needs to hear her testimony. Maria and her husband Gary were both pharmacists. Both were placed on Prozac about the same time for different reasons. Maria first attempted suicide on Prozac, stopped the drug, and began warning Gary of the dangers. He thought he was fine until one day out of the blue he stood in front of her and their four children while they were watching TV, and shot himself. Their full story can be found in the book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? available at www.drugawareness.org

FDA Recommends Approval of Female Version of Viagra, Addyi

FDA - drugs

FDA Recommends 18 to 6 to Approve Female Viagra, “Addyi”

The FDA has long proven it is the biggest, sickest, most tragic joke on the planet! It appears they will approve anything the drug companies encourage them to approve! After all most in the FDA go to work for pharmaceutical firms once they leave the FDA and who wants to have their future employer upset with them?

Now with this recommended approval of the female version of viagra and the full approval right around the corner on this drugs, all the woman who have no sexual desire left after burnout from their antidepressants can add this drug to the mix of drugs they are already on to see how many of them this new combo of meds will kill!

We now have besides this new one, Viagra, Cialis, Testosterone (Hitler gave that to his troops to make the lean, mean killing machines – the problem is it makes the brain lean as well!), etc.

Who would have ever dreamed that something similar to what we heard whispered about as kids (Spanish Fly) would actually be approved as “medicine” today! Of course we never really knew anything about Spanish Fly so I just did a Google search on it. Take a look at this info on and see if it does not sound similar to the warnings on common commercials we hear regularly on these sexual stimulant drugs:

SPANISH FLY: http://io9.com/5983275/why-spanish-fly-only-works-on-men–and-is-deadly

“Cantharidin’s [Spanish Fly] prowess as an irritant had to be known by anyone… Ingestion, and even digestion, does not diminish its ability to irritate. As it makes its way out of the body, it irritates the lining of the urethra. In women, the irritation is externally unnoticeable. In men, it causes a great deal of swelling in the area. This translates into a long-lasting erection. Most likely, it is not a pleasant erection, [If you have heard of but that didn’t stop people in antiquity from giving small doses of cantharidin to bridegrooms, or taking a dose themselves in preparation for a special night. The poet and philosopher, Lucretius, is rumored to have died from an overdose of cantharidin from the meloid beetle.

Death is the down side of genuine spanish fly, and the main reason it’s much better to be sold a fraudulent dose than a genuine one. Even a minor overdose can lead to erections long enough to need medical intervention. [Priaprism*] Many more than that and people exhibit extreme abdominal pain, respiratory and heart problems, renal failure, bloody urine, convulsions, coma, and death.

MAYO CLINIC: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/priapism/basics/causes/con-20029378

*According to the Mayo Clinic Priapism – prolonged and painful erection, is a known side effect of a number of drugs including all of these ED drugs, antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, blood thinners, and alcohol.

NPR: http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/06/04/411260331/advisers-to-fda-consider-controversial-drug-to-boost-female-libido

According to an NPR special this female Viagra drug, called Addyi, is a mind altering drug that shifts the balance of three key brain chemicals, increasing dopamine and norepinephrine and decreasing serotonin….whatever that means since they never seem to say if they mean any of these drugs is increasing the neurotransmitter itself or the metabolism of that neurotransmitter – totally opposite effects.

For instance with antidepressants they tell you the drugs increase serotonin yet lead you to believe you are getting the results of increasing serotonin metabolism. But according to medical research by increasing serotonin you can expect the opposite effect of what they are telling you to expect from these drugs. Research at the University of Southern California by Dr. Jean Chen Shih indicates the serious dangers of excess serotonin in their 1996 research paper: “Mutant Mice May Hold Key To Human Violence–An Excess Of Serotonin, A Chemical That Helps Regulate Mood And Mental Health, Causes Mayhem” (http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/)

EFFEXOR: YOUNG FATHER SUFFERS AKATHISIA IN DAYS ON MEDS

Josh Jensen

Josh Jensen

Great article Josh and Aimee! Let’s hope it serves as a warning to the dangerous effects of antidepressants. Akathisia is a Greek term meaning “Can’t sit still.” As you will read in this article that is exactly what happened to Josh after only days on Effexor. Had the doctors recognized it as such they would have known to stop the medication. Instead they continued medicating him with the drugs that are known to cause this. Read the article explaining it all here:

FAMILY SAYS DEPRESSION MED TRIGGERED

A WALK WITHOUT END

ARIZONA CITY — Josh Jensen walks 5 miles a day. Up and down the hall. Across the living room. To the kitchen and back.

He can’t stop.

“He paces until 4 o’clock in the morning, until he’s exhausted,” said Aimee Jensen, his wife.

He catches six to seven hours of restless sleep. Then he gets up and starts again.
Aimee, 28, sat across from me on their living room couch. Two or three of their five kids were at her side. The rest were in their bedrooms. They range in age from 1 to 7.

Josh, 27, did not sit on the couch. He paced. It was not a shuffle. It was not a stroll. It was a power walk. Like he was trying to get somewhere in a hurry. In this case, the other side of the living room.

Josh could speak as he walked. In that regard, he was fine. Articulate.

He found others like him online. They said they felt imprisoned by their own skin. They wanted to escape. They couldn’t, but kept trying. They kept walking.

I turned to Mylee, the 7-year-old. I asked her what she thought about her father. Always walking, never stopping.

“It’s sad,” she said.

Two years ago, Josh had problems. But not this one. He walked when he had to. When he wanted to. He sat still for meals and other daily routines. He had a good job installing Internet in homes…..

Senator Grassley’s Probe Discovered NAMI Is Funded 81% by Pharmaceuticals

nami-logo

Anyone having anything to do with NAMI needs to know this about their history. Beware of any and all groups claiming to offer “support” for those suffering mental illness. You need to know who is behind the group and what they are really about. I have more information on yet another suicide support group I will be sending out next.

How interesting to read NAMI’s alleged mission statement after it was just recommended as a source for help for anyone suffering as this veteran who just committed a double murder-suicide in Salt Lake City … very different mission than what Senator Charles Grassley’s Senate probe found as reported by the New York Times October 21, 2009. He found that 81% of their funding comes from drug companies…$23 Million just between 2006 – 2008.

Then the following day CBS News suggested Senator Grassley should look at a lawsuit filed against Pfizer by a former pharmaceutical rep which “alleges that Pfizer turned NAMI into a “Trojan Horse” to promote the antipsychotic drug Geodon for off-label use in children,”…”NAMI’s web site was used to promote off-label use of Geodon in kids, and NAMI’s former president, James McNulty, was on Pfizer’s payroll, the suit alleges.”

It amazes me that so few are aware of any of this about NAMI when they claim to be there for patients.

PTSD TREATMENT = ANTIDEPRESSANT: Utah Veteran Kills Fiancee, Son and Self

Jordan Reeves

Jordan Reeves, 2

Sunday in Salt Lake City, Utah yet another veteran being “treated” for PTSD shot his fiancee, two year old son, and himself just before noon. Now I hope by now you can all read between the lines well enough to know that being treated for PTSD means he is getting at least one antidepressant and likely two because the VA almost always prescribes the antidepressant Trazadone as an add on treatment to “help them sleep” since they cannot sleep because of the first antidepressant they were given!

Note also that because it happened before noon it could likely be the result of REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) as these cases generally tend to happen late at night or the early morning hours. RBD is a sleep disorder where the patient lacks paralysis during sleep and allowing them to act out nightmares they are having. Shockingly 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are currently on an antidepressant and this is not headline news as it should be.

To see how this tragedy would easily qualify as this man’s worst nightmare I share with you what his friends and those in the program with him had to say about him so you can see how completely out of character this type of violence was for this young man.

Johnathan Reeves Family

Jamie Salazar, Jordan & Johnathon Reeves

“Reeves had a prior history of domestic violence, threatening in August to kill his family. He was arrested and charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault. Reeves was placed in the veteran’s treatment program, designed to help those who have returned from their tour of duty and get in trouble with the law. Many of the court’s participants are also battling post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries, mental illness or addiction.

Those familiar with Reeves’ case say he was as close to a model participant as could be found. His drug tests were clean. He was attending all his court hearings and treatment sessions. And he was helping other veterans, according to court officials.

Friends said Reeves was a combat veteran with multiple deployments who loved his family.

“He was a good, kind hearted, talented young man. I don’t know why war affects even the best of men this way, but he truly was the best of men,” one man told the Deseret News.

The man, a friend of Reeves’ family, added: “We are grieving so greatly. The loss of Jamie, Johnathon and their precious child! Post-traumatic stress is the issue. How do we help these wonderful men and women veterans?

“All his family and friends knew his kind heart. He was a good man and that is evident in that he was doing so well in treatment. He really was the guy that would help someone broke down on the side of the road, or feed you if you were hungry.”

Why James Holmes Called Crisis Line to Stop Him From Committing The Shooting

James Holmes

James Holmes, Batman Shooter

Dr. Reid, the prosecution’s expert, clearly knows LITTLE about the drugs he and his colleagues regularly prescribe to patients – the same drugs prescribed to James Holmes which produce “psychosis” and “homicidal ideation” But if he admitted knowing such it would then point the blame on the drug makers and on him and his colleagues’ livelihood. Is that not a vested interest in not allowing the truth of this case to be told? If he admits the drugs pushed James Holmes into this as they have so MANY others: www.ssristories.NET are he and his colleagues any less guilty than someone who slips drugs/alcohol to someone who then commits a crime?

It has already been made public that James Holmes was on Zoloft, a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor – the same antidepressant initially given to Eric Harris from Columbine who was taken off the drug after only six weeks because he was having thoughts of killing that greatly disturbed him. Unfortunately his doctors apparently thought if the name of the drug was different, even though it was the same type of drug/same action in the brain, it would have a different effect upon Eric and switched him to the antidepressant called Luvox. Wrong move!

Zoloft is often referred to as Prozac #2 and Luvox as Prozac #4 since they are clones to Prozac and work similarly in the brain. As you read the medical research below keep in mind that these SSRI antidepressants work by increasing levels of serotonin (5HT) in the brain. These drugs are known to produce both psychosis/schizophrenia and homicidal ideation. Ideation is a compulsion where you think obsessively of both homicide and ways to commit homicide – exactly what James Holmes described in his writings and interrogations.

When a patient suffers this adverse reaction to the medications they long for anyone to stop them because the compulsion is so strong that they cannot stop themselves. James as so many others report was doing things he hoped would lead to someone who would stop him from doing what he was being chemically compelled to do.

As you read this quote from my book Prozac: Panacea OR Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! it will help you see how similar in action these serotonergic drugs are to LSD and PCP, drugs we have seen in the past that are now illegal although once thought to be “safe and effective” while they were prescribed by physicians. This will also help explain the psychosis/schizophrenia producing effects.

“Tonge and Leonard (1969) compared phencyclidine [PCP], Ditran, mescaline and LSD and their effect upon 5-HT (serotonin) and 5-HIAA (serotonin turnover). All four drugs increased brain 5-HT (serotonin) and decreased 5-HIAA [serotonin turnover/metabolism] over a three hour period. As we pointed out before inhibition of 5-HT (serotonin) is known to result in a decrease of 5-HIAA (serotonin turnover) while it increases extraneuronal content of the 5-HT (serotonin) (Buus, et al. 1975; Nabeshima, et al. 1983). Kenneth M. Johnson in 1978, thirty years after our official introduction to PCP, recommended that, “…Because of the suggestive nature of the foregoing studies with PCP and the proposed role of 5-HT [serotonin] in emotional and psychotic behavior, it is felt that a detailed biochemical study of the effects of PCP on serotonergic function is warranted…” (PCP PHENCYCLIDINE ABUSE: AN APPRAISAL , p. 46).

“This information on elevated serotonin levels and their connection to schizophrenia would imply that Prozac and the remaining SSRIs, along with any of the drugs which raise serotonin levels [by inhibiting serotonin turnover/metabolism] should all be classed as psychotomimetic drugs, [because] over a period of use they are chemically inducing a psychosis thus mimicking schizophrenia. As early as 1986 Prozac’s potential to induce psychosis emerged when an FDA Safety Reviewer uncovered that Lilly had withheld information of psychotic episodes in 52 patients during Prozac’s clinical trials.”

Antidepressant-Induced Psychosis & Everything Else They Cause

Zoloft and heart disease

Understanding Antidepressant-Induced Psychosis

And Everything Else They Cause

I have been going back through my book Prozac: Panacea OR Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! (Keep in mind that the only reason Prozac is the only antidepressant mentioned in the title is because it is the mother drug to all of the other SSRI and SNRI clones to follow it) to gather information for a court case and thought I would share something I ran across. It seems that so many who know enough to be against these drugs do not seem to know how simple it is to prove the deadly potential of antidepressants in producing psychotic breaks or so many other adverse effects. Hopefully just this one quote (although there is MUCH more) is enough to help everyone understand how similar in action these serotonergic drugs are to drugs we have seen in the past that are now illegal although once thought to be “safe and effective” also will help explain the psychosis producing effects.

“Tonge and Leonard (1969) compared phencyclidine [PCP], Ditran, mescaline and LSD and their effect upon 5 – HT (serotonin) and 5 – HIAA (serotonin turnover).

Johnson in 1978, thirty years after our official introduction to PCP, recommended that, “…Because of the suggestive nature of the foregoing studies with PCP and the proposed role of 5-HT [serotonin] in emotional and psychotic behavior, it is felt that a detailed biochemical study of the effects of PCP on serotonergic function is warranted…” (PCP PHENCYCLIDINE ABUSE: AN APPRAISAL , p. 46).

“This information on elevated serotonin levels and their connection to schizophrenia would imply that Prozac and the remaining SSRIs, along with any of the drugs which raise serotonin levels should all be classed as psychotomimetic drugs, over a period of use they are chemically inducing a psychosis thus mimicking schizophrenia. As early as 1986 Prozac’s potential to induce psychosis emerged when an FDA Safety Reviewer uncovered that Lilly had withheld information of psychotic episodes in 52 patients during Prozac’s clinical trials.

Diagnosed Autistic at Age 2 After Leaving State “Therapy” Found to Have IQ Higher Than Einstein

 

Jacob-Barnett

Jacob Barnett

Autistic Boy With Higher IQ Than Einstein Discovers His Gift After Removal From State-Run Therapy….Generally over 60% of children diagnosed with Autism are given antidepressants which increase serotonin. Yet elevated serotonin has long been known to be found in Autism and is also known to produce brain damage. Look what happens when a mother follows her heart and allows her son to learn outside the system!!! Watch him! This young man will blow you away! Thank you Kes Lee for sharing.

“Following a diagnosis of autism at age two, Jacob was subjected to a cookie cutter special education system that focused on correcting what he couldn’t do compared to normal children. For years, teachers attempted to convince Kristine Barnett that her son would only be able to learn the most basic of life skills.

“When exposed to the state system of educational therapy, Kristine noticed Jacob would withdraw deeply and refuse to speak with anyone. Even though she found it “terrifying to fly against the advice of the professionals,” she knew in her heart “that if Jake stayed in special ed, he would slip away,” Kristine relates in her memoir, The Spark: A Mother’s Story of Nurturing Genius.

“So began a journey for Jacob that would lead to such unexpected achievement that the whole premise of standardized therapy for this ‘special needs’ child would be blown to bits.

A path of passion and discovery

“After years of frustration and little progress, Kristine made a radical decision in the eyes of the special ed system — she took Jacob out of school and prepared him for kindergarten herself. As described in the New York Daily Times:

“She let him explore the things he wanted to explore. He studied patterns and shadows and stars. At the same time, she made sure that he enjoyed “normal” childhood pleasures – softball, picnics – along with other kids his age.

“I operate under a concept called ‘muchness’,” Kristine said “which is surrounding children with the things they love – be it music, or art, whatever they’re drawn to and love.”

Help Needed for Those Imprisoned Due to Their Use of Antidepressants

Katie

Katie Aurit & Her Grandsons, Mikey & AJ

Allow me to introduce my good friend Katie Aurit who has just set up a Go Fund Me Account to help those incarcerated in our prison system to obtain copies of the Bible. Katie and I met around 2006 after her son Todd, AJ’s father, had a terrible accident due to an adverse reaction to the antidepressant, Lexapro. The accident left one dead and two very seriously injured. For that they gave Todd 72 years in prison. Unfortunately Katie did not find us until after Todd’s case had already gone through the court system.

Since that time no one I know of has worked harder to find a way to help those incarcerated. She could likely easily earn a law degree at this point! She is making great headway and we hope to be able to share soon with many how to get their loved ones back home with them.

But in the meantime her son Todd has had her working on yet another project – obtaining Bibles for his cellmates. Apparently they have none – ought to get them out of all those hotel rooms where no one ever has time to read them and give them to these guys who have all the time in the world to read them! 🙂 But until that happens PLEASE visit Katie’s Go Fund Me page at the following link and help her reach her goal: http://www.gofundme.com/v9j6bg
