Gotta Love It!!!! Great New Stress Therapy Video!

Baby Blue with her favorite food – a red pepper!

Thank you for sharing this video Steffan T Bruyns! This is exactly why in the front of my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare!, I quoted my children who turned to me years ago and asked “Gee Mom, why do people use Prozac when all they need is a puppy?” And this is also why in the beginning of every lecture I give on antidepressants I pull a surprise out of my bag as I introduce my own antidepressant, my little two pound Chihuahua, Baby Blue 🙂  I can testify that Baby Blue has brought far more smiles to people’s faces in her five years than all antidepressants put together have over the decades they have been on the market! That is especially so when she moves and they realize they are looking at a real live dog instead of a stuffed animal. 🙂

And before her it was her uncle Kito who accompanied us to DC to march in front of the White House in August of 2005 wearing one of the bumper stickers Mark Taylor from Columbine designed for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness with the statement: WARNING! Antidepressants Kill!

Now watch this new stress therapy video…you will LOVE it! Just click this link:

Antidepressant-Induced Alzheimer’s and Memory Loss

sandy bem

Scientist Sandy Bem

According to the following NY Times Magazine article had been on a low dose of antidepressants for years before being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. She determined upon learning about the diagnosis that she would take her own life before her brain function became so compromised that she no longer could tell who she was.

Is there a connection? Certainly we know there is a connection to the suicidal thoughts with antidepressants, but what about the Alzheimer’s?

Antidepressant-Induced Alzheimer’s and Memory Loss

See the information below and you should easily be able to answer that question. [Also keep in mind that I have heard of a “low dose” of an antidepressant used to describe the maximum dose of the drug…that is a key phrase doctors use to pacifiy a patient’s concerns.]

I think you will see why one of the Facebook groups I just opened is titled Antidepressant-Induced Alzheimer’s and Memory Loss and can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1448649102099201/

The drug would have produced the symptoms of Alzheimers and suicide. PS It was included in my book on these drugs back in 1994 when it first came out. Remember the elevated serotonin which produced the mitral valve prolapse with the serotonergic diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux. The researcher who found the heart damage with Fen-Phen and Redux, Dr. Heidi Connoly from Mayo, said she found that it was the elevated serotonin produced by the drugs that produced the gummy gooey glossey substance that builds up on the valve to keep it from closing properly.

Well since Alzheimers has long been known to be a state of elevated serotonin as well should we not also expect elevated serotonin produced by any serotonergic medication to produce the same gummy, gooey, glossy substance to build up in the brain as they explain happens in Alzheimers? Of course we should!!!

In fact the real reason the serotonergic diet pills were pulled from the market was brain damage rather than the heart valve damage. A year before Wyeth had been told by the FDA of their concerns about possible brain damage with Redux and even though they approved Redux they wanted further research on possible brain damage with the drug. When concerns were brought to light on the heart valve problems the spotlight was also shown on the brain damage issue since it was learned that Wyeth had never followed through with doing that additional research on that. Plus Una McCann from the National Institutes of Health had just published new research demonstrating some of the most shocking brain damage ever with these drugs.

Please see this 2009 post on Utah, long leading the way in America in the use of antidepressants, was found to be #2 in the nation in the incidence of Alzheimers’ as I discuss the case of my dear friends, Robert Redford’s ex-inlaws:

UK Antidepressant De-Ja-Vu: Lives ‘Left in Ruin by Rising Tide of Depression Drugs

JO EXPLAINS HOW ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE HAPPINESS: Miss Thompson is still suffering. “Three years have passed, but the ringing in my ears has never gone away and I’m so much more anxious than previously about things that would never have once concerned me. But once you’ve survived withdrawal, you are just glad to be alive.”

This whole scenario is like watching happen in the UK with antidepressants what has been happening in the US for the past two and a half decades….

The Telegraph: Lives ‘left in ruin’ by rising tide of depression drugs

More people are being put on the pills but some experts are now warning they do more harm than good. Julia Llewellyn Smith reports

By Julia Llewellyn Smith

7:00AM BST 27 Apr 2014

Twenty years ago, Henry was living a fulfilled life. A happily married father from the Home Counties, his sales career was going well, he had a wide social circle and played football and golf regularly. “I was a conservative, head-down, career-minded person who enjoyed my life,” he says.

But in 1995, a bout of flu left Henry, then 31, exhausted and lethargic. He visited his GP, who told him he was depressed, and prescribed the world’s most popular antidepressant, Prozac. “Everything appeared completely benign — he said depression was a common complaint, the drugs would fix it and then I’d stop taking them.”

No Improvement But Could Not Get Off the Drug

More than a decade later, Henry was far from cured and still taking antidepressants. “None of the drugs I was prescribed made me feel better, and most made me considerably worse. But every time I stopped them, the symptoms of what I thought was depression — but now know were of withdrawal — returned even more strongly, so I went back to the pills.”

By 2009, he was so unwell that he had to give up work. Finally, suspecting the drugs were the cause of his problems, he quit them, only to enter a new hell.
“It was torture. I thought I was going to die, and I didn’t care. For two years, I was in severe physical pain and so weak I lay all day on the sofa. My cognition was severely affected, I was dizzy, with blurred vision, I couldn’t read a bedtime story to my son and couldn’t remember things that had happened just a few seconds previously.”

Henry — who does not want to reveal his last name because of pending legal action against the drugs manufacturers — is just one of an estimated four million people in Britain taking antidepressants, a number that is rising sharply.

UK Antidepressant Prescriptions:  1 in 3 Women, 1 in 10 Men

Last year, 53?million prescriptions were issued for antidepressants in England alone, nearly double the number prescribed a decade ago, and a six per cent increase in the past year. According to recent research, one in three British women and one in 10 men now take the medication, including popular brands such as Prozac, Cipramil [Celexa] and Seroxat [Paxil], at some point in their lives.

But a growing number of experts now believe depression is vastly overdiagnosed and the drugs can cause far more harm than good.

This week, a new organisation, the Council for Evidence-Based Psychiatry (CEP), whose members include psychiatrists, academics and withdrawal charities, is launching, to educate the public about the risks of antidepressants. A keynote speech will be given by Prof Peter Gøtzsche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, an international, non-profit organisation that examines vast amounts of medical data to help doctors and patients reach informed conclusions about health.

Prof Gøtzsche, author of Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare, believes that some drug companies have obfuscated the truth about antidepressants, much as tobacco firms attempted to hide the dangers of cigarettes.

Antidepressants Help Very Few People

“My research has led me to the uncomfortable conclusions that these drugs help very few people. They are often being taken needlessly and, in many cases, ruining lives.

“GPs and psychiatrists hand out these drugs for the most unbelievable reasons — when patients are having marital problems, have failed exams, split up with their boyfriends — occasions that would make anyone feel sad and stressed but don’t indicate clinical depression.

“In such cases, and also in truly depressed patients, the patients will feel better anyway with the passing of time, but doctors and patients attribute their recovery to the antidepressants. When they stop the drugs, withdrawal symptoms will often make them feel bad. This is often misdiagnosed as the depression not being cured, so they are told to continue taking the pills, sometimes for life.”

Jo Thompson, 31, an NHS researcher, was prescribed antidepressants three years ago for anxiety about her university final exams. “What I was going through — worrying about the future and choices I was making — was completely normal, in retrospect,” she says.

Her GP wrote her a prescription for lorazepam, a potent benzodiazepine or anti-anxiety drug, which are currently in vogue, with 16.5?million being prescribed in the UK last year, and to which around one million people are thought to be “accidentally” addicted — compared with 300,000 illegal heroin and crack cocaine addicts.

Miss Thompson took the pills but rather than feeling calmer, she went “through the roof”. “Within days, normal life became unmanageable,” she says. “I stopped eating. I’m a very sociable person but I became a hermit. Any sudden sensation terrified me, to the point where I daren’t step into the shower, so I stopped washing. I thought I was going mad.

“In my naivety, it never occurred to me that they might be the drugs’ side effects. They had been given to me by a doctor to make me better, so how could they be making things considerably worse?”

Miss Thompson ended up in hospital. “I was a shivering shell, not sleeping at all,” she says. Increasingly concerned at doctors’ insistence on trying different antidepressants and upping doses, she discharged herself and decided to stop the drugs overnight. As with Henry, and 72 per cent of antidepressant users surveyed by CEP, doctors had given her no warning about the dangers of “cold turkey” withdrawal from benzodiazepines.

“I had no idea of the horrors that awaited me. Every second of the day was hell. I was a zombie, but one that couldn’t sit down. I just paced up and down, and asked my parents if I was going to die. I couldn’t be left alone. In the car, I was overwhelmed with the urge to throw myself out on to the motorway.”

When Miss Thompson later tackled her GP about his lack of advice, he became very defensive. “He just mumbled about not having any training,” she says.
During his time as an NHS psychotherapist, Dr James Davies, co-founder of CEP, was amazed at how freely antidepressants were handed out. “People were being medicated entirely unnecessarily, when they weren’t suffering from mental-health disorders but from understandable, sometimes even necessary, human experience.”

Although official advice is to prescribe antidepressants in conjunction with counselling, in practice long waiting lists mean this rarely happens.

“It’s cheaper and quicker to prescribe antidepressants than investigate the root cause of sadness,” says Dr Davies. “The other problem is mental health practitioners aren’t introduced during training to the growing body of critical research on the drugs.”

WHO Warns Antidepressant Use “Through the Roof”

Antidepressants enjoy global popularity (the World Health Organisation recently warned that antidepressant use in many countries had gone “through the roof”, with one in 10 people in Iceland taking the drugs), but they were invented only by accident, when scientists searching for a tuberculosis cure noticed, in 1952, that sick people became more cheerful after taking the anti-infection drugs they were developing.

Sylvia Plath’s Antidepressant-Induced Suicide

No one understood how the drugs worked, but since mental illnesses were usually tackled through partial lobotomies, brain injections or the electroshock treatment recorded by Sylvia Plath in The Bell Jar, a straightforward pill was hugely appealing. [Keep in mind that Sylvia Plath killed herself on an antidepressant and her husband and biographer both blamed the drug for the suicide. http://www.theguardian.com/books/2001/aug/08/artsandhumanities.highereducation ]

Over the following decades, drug companies explained that depression was caused by a chemical imbalance that drugs could cure. But this theory has never been proven. “These drugs create a chemical imbalance, which is why it is so difficult for patients to get off them,” says Prof Gøtzsche.

Little Evidence Antidepressants Help, Instead Do Harm

In fact, he says, there’s little evidence that antidepressants help anyone. “In cases of mild depression, their effect is small. Nice [the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence] recommends that antidepressants are not routinely prescribed for people with mild depression. But even in severe cases, research shows only 10 per cent of people will feel better than if they used a placebo.

“Some people ask me if I’m worried that by pointing this out people will decide to come off their drugs and become very ill,” he continues. “But I’m not afraid of that, provided patients taper off their drug slowly in collaboration with their doctor. What I’m afraid of is the harm being done to so many healthy people.

“Furthermore, there are case reports in patients and controlled experiments on animals that suggest that the drugs could perhaps cause permanent brain damage; we are currently studying this.”

Miss Thompson is still suffering. “Three years have passed, but the ringing in my ears has never gone away and I’m so much more anxious than previously about things that would never have once concerned me. But once you’ve survived withdrawal, you are just glad to be alive.”

Nine years after he began withdrawal, Henry estimates he is only 80 per cent better and has just returned to work.

“Last year, a psychiatrist told me it’s unlikely I ever had depression at all, I was just run down and needed rest. Because I innocently accepted my GP’s diagnosis, I’ve lost 20 years of my life,” he says.

ANTIDEPRESSANT? Creed Frontman, Scott Stapp, Announces “I Am Bipolar”

scott stapp

Scott Stapp, Frontman for Creed

Creed frontman, Scott Stapp, has had some serious problems lately and has just been diagnosed as having Bipolar Disorder despite his admission of abusing prescription drugs and alcohol which can trigger a transient Bipolar reaction, but does not need to be treated for the rest of his life with Bipolar meds as he is apparently being told.

HOW SAD!!! Not another one! If they are “medicating” him for Bipolar they are likely giving him antidepressants which produce overwhelming cravings for alcohol and Bipolar reactions – just what he does NOT need! There should be warnings on these drugs that someone who has had an alcohol or drug problem in the past like Del Shannon or Robin Williams or Brynn Hartman, Phil Hartman’s wife, that they should NEVER be given an antidepressant!!!!! They are absolutely deadly for them!

I was the expert in Brynn and Phil Hartman’s wrongful death suit against the makers of Zoloft.

Del Shannon’s widow is a dear friend of mine who follows my work closely because of Del’s suicide on Prozac after only a couple of weeks on it.

Brynn Hartman without doubt and Robin Williams I also believe acted out their worst nightmare called the REM Sleep Disorder, known to produce both suicide and murder. And 80% of those being diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder are currently taking an antidepressant even though it is generally seen as a drug withdrawal state. So no one should ever come abruptly off one of these drugs!!

Someone is NOT “sober” when he is being given mind altering prescription drugs. I have seen a six month episode of full blown manic psychosis completely disappear with the use of Tahitian Noni juice. I believe the reason for that is it balances blood sugar which has long been considered a potential trigger for mania/Bipolar episodes.

2004 February FDA Testimony of Jamie Tierney Given Effexor for Migraine Headaches at Age 14

jamie.jpg

Jamie Tierney

A neurologist, who certainly should have known better, gave the SNRI antidepressant, Effexor, to 14 year old Jamie Tierney. Let her share with you what horrors she suffered as a result. Luckily her parents knew what they were seeing in Jamie’s behavior was not her and continued to search for answers. I still remember her mother’s first call to me and the hours upon hours spent in helping Jamie to be able to withdraw safely off of this deadly drug that almost took her life.

Listen to her February 2004 testimony before the FDA here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uhec-FDVEW4

And so common for so many young people who are targeted with these drugs as they enter college Jamie was offered the antidepressant Wellbutrin with the sales pitch that this antidepressant does not work like the other antidepressants (BS!) and it is safe so there is no need to worry. Jamie suffered the same nightmare all over again. Thankfully she survived that and has learned to avoid any of these drugs for the rest of her life!

February 2004 FDA Testimony of Corey and Jay Baadsgaard – Why I Took a Gun to School

corey

Corey Baadsgaard

Since it seems from the feedback we received after posting Mark and Cheryl Miller’s FDA testimony that many of you were unaware of all the testimonies on our site I thought I would post a few more for you.

This is Corey and his father Jay Baadsgaard from Mattawa, WA. No one gained more media attention at the February 2, 2004 FDA hearing on antidepressants and children than did Jay Baadsgaard, who has now been serving as our Washington Co-Director for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness for many years. In watching their presentation to the FDA you will see why. Jay has one of the deepest and longrange voices I have ever heard. Find the link to their testimony here: http://www.drugawareness.org/corey-baadsgaard-fda-testimony/

And you can find Corey’s story in the following video as to what happened to him when he suffered one of the most deadly adverse reactions to antidepressants known as a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where you act out nightmares in a dream state. Corey got up from a short nap, but did not wake up as he took a gun to school under the influence of Paxil and Effexor. He held classmates at gunpoint while he fluctuated between homicidal and suicidal ideation for 45 and to this day has no memory of it. Here is the link to his story Why I Took a Gun to School: http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

Mark and Cheryl Miller Testify Before the FDA on the Zoloft-Induced Suicide of Their Only Son, Matt, 13

Matt Miller

Matt Miller, 13

I hope you have all had the opportunity to visit our website’s video section at www.drugawareness.org to view testimonies from all of us to the FDA in the 1991, 2004 and 2006 hearings on antidepressant-induced suicide. You will see clearly that the FDA should have taken action on the SSRI antidepressants back in 1991 when Prozac was the only SSRI on the market – long before all of the other Prozac clones appeared on the market to result in the killing so many more innocent victims.

Below is a link to the testimony of Mark and Cheryl Miller in February of 2004 about the Zoloft-induced suicide of their 13 year old son, Matt, after only 7 pills. You will also find these testimonies listed in our database of Antidepressant Nightmares at www.ssristories.NET Mark originally set up our website in 1997 and served as our webmaster for the next decade.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Nepal Earthquake – Nepal to Relive Their 2001 Antidepressant Nightmare?

Nepal Earthquake

Nepal Survivor: Bihani, 2.5 Years Old

In June of 2001 the country of Nepal was shaken to the core, not by an earthquake but by the horrific antidepressant-induced murder/suicide of the entire Royal Family of Nepal by the Crown Prince who then killed himself leaving 10 members of the family dead. Here is a quote from the initial article documenting his use of the drugs and serious adverse reactions he was having: “Crown Prince Dipendra was taking anti-depressants and began threatening to kill his family a year before the slaughter June 1”

Original Article on Murder/suicide of Nepal’s Royal family:

 http://ssristories.drugawareness.org/archive/showec3d.html?item=1372

While this article blames stress as the trigger for Crown Prince Dipendra they neglect to mention the fact that stress is measured biologically by testing cortisol levels and one single dose of the antidepressant Prozac clearly DOUBLES cortisol with only one single 30mg dose thereby doubling the stress level.

Nepal Earthquake Brings Counselors in From Around the World

This beautiful little girl above is Bihani, she’s 2.5 years old and completely adorable. Her face is covered in scrapes and bruises from injuries she sustained in the earthquake. Her house was completely destroyed and she was trapped inside, pinned under a mound of bricks and debris. Fortunately she was rescued quickly, but her story is one of extreme tragedy—her mother was killed next to her in the hallway, just steps away from the door.

Also an absolute horrific tragedy leaving at this point over 7000 confirmed dead in the beautiful country of Nepal. Certainly this tragedy will be reason for many to be depressed – naturally depressed for good reason. This is grief and what is called “situational depression” – a condition for which the SSRI antidepressants have never been approved. Yet when a natural disaster like this or any other type of tragedy happens there is a rush to get antidepressants into the area to treat people. Similar to Rosie O’Donnell going on Zoloft in response to the tragedy at Columbine. Ironic? Certainly, when you know it was antidepressants that caused Columbine!

The word about the Crown Prince of Nepal being put on antidepressants while attending a university in the UK likely never reached the people of Nepal who certainly deserved to know the truth about what happened. So now lacking that information which could have warned them to avoid these deadly drugs like the plague they are these poor people may have to learn firsthand how they lost their royal family almost a decade and a half ago. Please share this information with any friends you have in Nepal and let’s do what we can to warn them before it is too late for them.

I am grateful to Facebook for alterting me to my friends in Nepal who have been confirmed safe. I will share this with them and ask them to share the information any way they can.

Below I have included links so you can see the plans by groups to “counsel” everyone on the planet who is affected by this tragedy – which would of course include anyone with a heart. You will see they are even targeting universities here in the US as well.

Grief is natural and not something any of us like to deal with, but it is part of life and can be worked through. The addiction and adverse reactions that come from antidepressants only make the situation so much worse….please see below just a couple of serious reactions that have come with only one or two pills similar to the only case Glaxo ever allowed to go to court in Wyoming where Donald Schell shot his wife, daughter, infant granddaughter and himself after only two pills of the antidepressant Paxil.

Veteran Becomes Intensely Homicidal and Suicidal

After Two Pills of His Antidepressant

I am a veteran of 15 years. I have seen the disasters from prescription medicines especially the ones we were issued to treat PTSD and other mental illness.

A couple years ago, I agreed to take Zoloft as suggested by my doctor for depression. I had denied it for years.

Within 2 days, I was truly suicidal. I wanted death bad. It wasn’t like normal where I’m so depressed I’d rather be dead. It was more like I wanted death like it was a new Ferrari. I wanted it for everyone. I wanted to get my friends together and lets all die together.

I’ve been confused at how this drug makes you feel this way. I felt why so many commit suicide on these drugs and why its a side effect. I tried to OD but I sucked at it fortunately.

I never touched a pill again.

C._____

Detailed Description of Antidepressant-Induced Homicidal Ideation

After Only One Pill

I would like to describe My experience with homicidal ideation after taking Lexapro:

I took the pill, I laid down to sleep, I woke up in hell….8 hours after taking one 10mg Lexapro pill I woke to thoughts of murder and a bizarre desire to repeatedly stab my neighbor to death. I was having a severe adverse reaction to the Lexapro often described as homicidal Ideation, very closely related to Suicidal Ideation, and brought on by elevated serotonin levels. These thoughts and desires lasted for approximately 3 days. Those 3 days after ingesting the SSRI are the only 3 days in my life of 43 years that I have experienced anything remotely similar to this. I have no history of violence.

I wasn’t trying to think about anything, the thoughts just came into my mind. It was as if I was being instructed. The thoughts were graphic and specific. According to the thoughts, using a large kitchen knife, I was to repeatedly and deeply stab and my neighbor until he was dead. I felt an eerie desire to have warm blood all over my body. Later, in my thoughts my dead neighbor would still be alive afterwards and we would laugh together as he bled. I would see images and it was a bit like thinking about a movie I had watched.

These extremely violent thoughts were enmeshed with comforting sensations similar to satisfying hunger and were emerging without any instigation on my part. It didn’t feel like rage, it was more like a strong urge. It was as if I was half dreaming. More accurately, it was like drifting in and out of sleep while allowing the dream to take hold.

When I had these thoughts they scared me so much I would scream and run into my bedroom. After the first day, I wasn’t as scared and just tried to think about anything else. I called my brother and asked him to remove all the guns and knives from my house immediately. I knew the drug had caused a major brain malfunction and I thoroughly believed/feared that if I told anyone I would be locked away and tortured with more brain drugs. I decided to wait and hoped that I might heal or that the drug would leave my system. I drank a lot of water.

The thoughts were in my mind but the thoughts weren’t mine. I didn’t generate those thoughts. I only had these thoughts for 3 days because I discontinued the drug after the first pill. But it seemed so real that I wondered some days if it had already happened and I was remembering it. Then I would see my neighbor and feel relieved. That is how disconnected from reality I was at the time.

This experience gave me deep insight into why some people on SSRI’s might commit the unbelievable acts they do. Mass shootings, baby killings, suicides and all of the bizarre acts in the news are often attributed to insanity or even demon possession.

Which led me to question why the correlation between SSRI’s and violent and bizarre crimes are not being addressed in media reports.

ANTIDEPRESSANT? 13 Year Old Behind School Machete/Crossbow Attack Killing a Teacher

Spain school attack

Spain: School Attack With Machete & Crossbow

On the 16th anniversary of Columbine yet another school incident in Spain today. No matter the weapon, on an antidepressant the person will find the means to do what this young man just did and demonstrated for the world.

“A 13-year-old student armed with a crossbow and machete killed a substitute teacher and wounded four other people Monday at his high school in Barcelona, Spain, before being taken into custody, police said.

“It was the first documented case in Spain of a pupil killing a teacher, according to the country’s teachers union. The attack took place on the 16th anniversary of the massacre at Colorado’s Columbine High School, during which two students gunned down 12 of their classmates and a teacher before committing suicide…”

“He was very disturbed and saying strange and incoherent things.
– Jose Miguel Company, spokesman for the Barcelona prosecutor’s office.”

“Police in Barcelona said they had no motive for Monday’s killing. The boy’s classmates told local Catalan media that he was not known as a troublemaker. But one classmate told La Vanguardia newspaper that the attacker was obsessed with the military, collected weapons at home and even drafted “kill lists” of teachers at his school.”

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Columbine & Red Lake Anniversaries – Burying the Truth

Jeff Weise before

Jeff Weise, Red Lake Shooter

Two of the worst school shootings in America…Today is the sixteenth anniversary of the Columbine shooting. Classes were canceled today in memory of the victims – 15 died in the shooting and 24 more were wounded with some barely surviving.

And Saturday, March 21, was the 10th anniversary of the Red Lake School shooting where 10 died and 14 were wounded. Early the morning ten years earlier 16 year old Jeff Weise shot his grandfather (who he was very close to and loved very much), and his grandfather’s girl friend, before leaving the home. He then went to school and killed a security guard, a teacher and five fellow students before shooting himself.

Jeff had become obsessed with the movie Elephant about the Columbine Shooting and just as with Eric Harris at Columbine his doctor had just increased the dose of his antidepressant. With Eric it was the antidepressant Luvox which had been doubled two months before and with Jeff it was Prozac which had been greatly increased to 60 mgs the week before the shooting.

Database of School Shootings

Database of about 70 school shootings including documentation of the antidepressant involved in each shooting can be found here:

Why I Took A Gun to School

If you have not yet watched the video of the only school shooter to go into detail about what happened to him you need to watch Corey Baadsgard discuss his experience which miraculously ended with no shots being fired and one getting injured after Corey’s teacher was able to talk him into giving him the gun 45 minutes after he walked into the classroom taking his fellow classmates hostage.

Ten Years Ago – That Day In Red Lake

From an article ten years ago: “BEMIDJI, MINN. — Jeffrey Weise had “a good relationship” with the grandfather he shot and killed on Monday as prelude to his deadly assault on students and others at Red Lake High School, according to relatives who are struggling to understand what might have pushed the teenager from sometimes bizarre behavior to mass murder and suicide.

They have sifted through the traumas of his childhood: his father’s suicide, the car accident that left his mother with reduced mental capacity, the shuttling between the Red Lake Reservation and the Twin Cities, and the taunts of peers over his appearance, size and outsider behavior.

They wondered, too, about medication he was supposedly taking for depression, and a recent increase in his prescribed dosage.

Lee Cook, director of the American Indian Cultural Center at Bemidji State University and a first cousin to Sgt. Daryl (Dash) Lussier, the grandfather, talked about the tragedy Thursday after meeting on the reservation with Lussier’s brother, three daughters and other family members.

“The daughters said Jeff loved his grandfather, and his grandfather loved him,” Cook said. “There had never been any serious differences or harsh words between them.

“They were surprised by all of this, but they were stunned he would shoot his grandfather.”

Dosage increased

“Weise’s relatives “knew he had a problem with depression, and they took him to treatment,” Cook said. “He was getting counseling.” His medication dosage had been increased a week earlier, Cook added.

“His grandmother, Shelda Lussier, 54, said he saw a mental health professional at Red Lake Hospital on Feb. 21, the same day his prescription was refilled for 60 milligrams a day of Prozac, which he had been taking since last summer, the Washington Post reported.”

Black Box Warning Six Months Earlier Not Strong Enough

“Studies have linked Prozac and similar antidepressants to a greater risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior in kids. In October, the Food and Drug Administration revised the drugs’ packaging to warn health professionals that they should closely monitor young patients when an antidepressant is prescribed or the dose is changed.”

Burying the Evidence

It appears the drug makers like the idea that Solvey, the makers of Luvox, used in 2009 to bury evidence of the connection between antidepressants and Columbine. (Keep in mind that Solvey used Pfizer’s attorneys out of Denver in Mark Taylor’s suit against them for causing Eric Harris to shoot Mark at Columbine as a result of his use of Luvox.)

Columbine “Miracle Boy,” Mark Taylor

Original Article on Columbine

This is an interview Mark Taylor, the first boy shot at Columbine and the only one who sued the antidepressant maker for causing Columbine, and I did with Kelly O’Meara who was writing for the Washington Times’ Insight Magazine.

Aftermath of Columbine Ten Years Later – Burying the Evidence

This is what we were doing as Columbine and Red Lake came together to warn the world that both shootings were caused by antidepressants.

http://www.drugawareness.org/columbine-anniversary-brings-columbine-red-lake-together/

While we were working to warn the world of the antidepressant connection the popular US newspaper, USA Today, was most likely obtaining a large Pharma contract in exchange for convincing the world that antidepressants being involved in the Columbine shooting was just a “myth”! Even though I immediately contacted the reporter the minute the article hit the internet to correct him and he admited that Luvox was part of Columbine and he should change that. It was never done and almost a week later the article hit all of the small town papers nationwide and people began to believe Columbine had nothing to do with antidepressants.

So in both shootings we see the efforts to bury the evidence for any younger generations so that they are not aware of the antidepressant connection to nearly every shooting in America and others around the world. In investigating these cases since the 90’s and acting in an expert capacity on many of the cases I can tell you that the connection to antidepressants is SO COMMON that I am shocked when I do not find the antidepressant in the case. Of about the first 100 there were only two where the connection was not made – one involved the use of marijuana, which could easily have been laced with PCP thus causing the violence. The other case had all the earmarks of an antidepressant reaction and I am still following leads on that case to learn the truth behind that one.

 

Learn How the Drug Companies Fight Back by Viewing

Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine

If you really think you know anything about Columbine think again! The initial lawsuit filed against Solvay Pharmaceutical for causing Columbine had five plaintiffs until the attorneys representing Solvay (Pfizer’s attorneys based in Denver) told the plaintiffs that if they did not win their lawsuit against them they would sue them for everything they had. The families knowing the power of the drug companies all backed off stating that they had already lost their loved ones and could not afford to suffer the loss of everything else.

Mark Taylor was the only one with the courage to continue and he used the money donated to him as a victim to do so! Mark Taylor’s voice was one even the FDA officials was impressed with. In my opinion Pharma could not afford to allow Mark Taylor to continue his fight for truth. His lawsuit was mysteriously shattered by technicalities and then the unthinkable happened to Mark next.
