MEDICATION: Rosie O’Donnell’s Daughter Found Safe After Going Missing

Chelsea O’Donnell

I have no doubt that the biggest reason this young woman is on meds  (notice the Prozac eyes in this picture) is because mothers on these antidepressants seem to all too often make sure their kids get on the drugs as well because they think the drugs are saving their own lives and so many others around them must need them too.

Rosie started out on the serotonergic weight loss drugs, either Fen-Phen or Redux, and then she was one of so many who were dropped cold turkey when those drugs were pulled from the market. The action of those drugs were a combination of an SSRI and a serotonin agonist, meaning they both inhibited the reuptake of serotonin plus triggered the release of more serotonin thus causing the serotonin levels to rise even more rapidly than just an SSRI would – kind of a doubling effect on the serotonin system. This is why I continue to warn that antidepressants are not the only group of drugs out there that can produce the serious issues we see with serotonin elevating chemicals.

These diet drugs were abruptly pulled off the market in September of 1997. As a result of that forced cold turkey withdrawal many patients became very depressed and seriously suicidal. Some killed their children and themselves. And many of those patients were given antidepressants in withdrawal because the abrupt withdrawal combined with the elevated serotonin produced by the drugs made so many depressed and suicidal. I am sure the very valid fear of potential heart murmurs and the fatal Primary Pulmonary Hypertension produced by these drugs, did not help anyone’s mood either.

Fen-Phen & Redux Resulted in Largest Damage Suit Ever, Until…

The massive damages from these weight loss drugs became the reason for biggest class action lawsuit ever filed in America until about five years later when it was learned that a possible 140,000 people had died of heart attacks caused by the NSAID Vioxx – a drug in the same class of drugs the FDA just gave us another smiliar warning on with are used regularly by many – Ibuprophen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, etc. See that warning here: http://www.drugawareness.org/common-drugs-celebrex-advil-motrin-aleve-gain-serous-new-fda-warnings-on-heart-attack-stroke/

Fen-Phen & Redux Actually Pulled Due To Brain Damage

Heidi Connolly at the Mayo Clinic had discovered several months earlier that these drugs were producing elevated serotonin levels which in turn were causing a gummy gooey glossy substance to build up on heart valves to prevent them from closing properly resulting in heart murmurs. Yet Fen-Phen and Redux were actually pulled from the market due to the massive brain damage they produced. Yet tragically few who were damaged by these immensely popular diet drugs ever learned that because everyone was focusing on the potentially fatal heart and lung damage they had produced. I know I will never forget the images posted in the Dallas Moring News showing the brain damage they produced.

How did this happen?

Although the FDA approved Redux permaturely a year before the subsequent removal, at the time they also required Wyeth to do more research on possible brain damage which they suspected may be a result of the drug. As it turned out Wyeth never did the research. Una McCann at NIMH did the research and published it the end of August 1997. She found the brain damage so serious that it continued unchanged for at least 17 months after use and there were concerns it could be permanent damage. Here is the press release from NIMH on that research: http://www.nih.gov/news/pr/aug97/nimh-26.htm

Columbine Happened in April of 1999

About a year and a half after the weight loss pills were taken off the market Columbine happened. That coupled with the depression from the abrupt withdrawal of the weight loss drugs became too much for Rosie and she started on Zoloft.

Now keep in mind that anyone who has suffered a head injury should be very wary of ever taking an antidepressant. Although there are no warnings of that on any of the antidepressants except for Wellbutrin, which has some very strong warnings about the contra-indications, I believe there should be. Considering the damage Rosie and so many others may have suffered as a result of the weight loss drugs, yet were never told that is what happened to them, they should have been warned about using antidepressants rather than so many being prescribed these drugs!

Is Rosie still on the medications? My opinon would be that she most likely is still on something due to the extreme difficulty in ever getting off antidepressants unless you know to go EXTREMLY slowly. But that is just my opinion. Although I think it is obvious that they have told her she suffers all types of “disorders” now (all a side effects of these drugs of course) because if she was off the meds and realizing what they have done to her, as Rosanne Barr now has, I do not believe she would be forcing her poor daughter on the drugs she has said she does not want to take.

Sadly this is one more family added to the thousands upon thousands of others suffering serious issues due to these deadly drugs. It is bad enough to go through these issues privately, but for those who have to go through them publicly it must be even more devastating. I know Rosanne Barr said that accusing her parents of abusing her was a result of the medications and was the biggest mistake she had ever made in her life. It must have taken a lot of courage for her to do that publicly on Oprah! Thankfully her parents understood what was going on because I worked with them during that time, but it was so hard for them to watch her go through it. I know the last conversation I had with her mother, who is an absolute angel on earth by the way, and this was before Rosanne came off the meds. She asked me, “Will we ever see the real Roseanne again?” It broke my heart to have to tell her I did not know. It is so wonderful to see the family back together again!

Most Running Away or Disappearing Are on Antidepressants

I have also found that kids running away are almost always on an antidepressant. Years ago I called the Center for Missing and Exploited Children and said, “I hope you know the large majority of the kids you are looking for are on antidepressants.”

They asked how I knew that and I told them because I see it so often in working with families in this situation. They then agreed that I was right and they were seeing the same thing.

One poor woman in our new group had her husband go missing TEN years ago! But with amnesia listed as a frequent side effect, why would that not be the case? The link to that group is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/384573685069360/

BIPOLAR (ANTIDEPRESSANT): First Woman in Alabama Sentenced to Death for Killing Two Children

HEATHER LEAVELL-KEATON

“He also added that Leavell-Keaton grew up in a dysfunctional family, developed bipolar disorder at a young age, and lived with a partial blindness throughout her life.”

Yet another case of a woman drugged out of her mind killing children! “He also added that Leavell-Keaton grew up in a dysfunctional family, developed bipolar disorder at a young age, and lived with a partial blindness throughout her life.” The list is so long at this point! See how many…SSRIstories.NET It is the antidepressants CAUSING both the bipolar symptoms and the violence and the problems with eyesight. (Remember the suicidal German pilot on antidepressants from this last Spring who took 150 people to their deaths. He was concerned he was losing his eyesight as was the elderly Russian immegrant who was the shooter in the Salt Lake Family History Library.)

What a shame attorneys do not know enough to address this in court and doctors do not know enough not to give these deadly drugs to people! You will see from that long list that well over 90% of mothers killing children are taking antidepressants which have both suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects (compulsive thoughts and actions of suicide and homicide). Yes, they admit they can cause this and we continue to allow them to be on the market?!! Here is a link to the Leeza Gibbons Show I did back in 1999 on this very subject of mothers on antidepressants killing there children: http://www.drugawareness.org/antidepressants-mothers-killing-their-children-leeza-gibbons-show/

I have testified in these cases for over two decades and cannot believe how much silence about what is going on around us money can buy! Besides the homicidal and suicidal ideation warnings the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. Just skipping a few doses can result in this type of tragedy. How many more school shootings, mass murders, mothers and even grandmothers killing children do we need to see before we stop this living nightmare in which we now live as a result of this mass drugging?!

PLEASE NOTE: The Leeza Gibbons show was done two years before Andrea Yates, a nurse, killed her five children while under the influence of two antidepressants (Effexor and Remeron) after the dose of both medications were abruptly changed. The manufacturer of Effexor added “homicidal ideation” to the list of side effects two years later after an employee was killed along with the entire extended family, in a mass murder/suicide committed by her husband who was on Effexor. The employee’s position at the company? Taking adverse reaction reports on Effexor! Even she did not see it coming.

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.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? The Double Murder Attempt I Woke Up To This Morning

Swat Team Responds to Attempted Double Murder

I woke up to those gun shots this morning as this is only blocks away from my daughter’s home where I have been visiting! There were so many shots fired that I lost count making me wonder if it was really gunshots or kids shooting off firecrackers. Then I heard the sirens and wondered if it was not yet another of these cases that happen so often in the middle of the night or early morning hours. When I checked the news I found that a man just a few blocks away shot his wife and a woman attempting to help before holding his wife hostage and having a standoff with a swat team. Do I wonder if antidepressants were involved? Not really when this area of the country held the title of the Prozac Capitol of the Nation for many years. Include with that the following reports and you can see there was likely a medication change just a week ago when he threatened to take an officer’s gun and kill him.

Shooter Evaluated for Mental Status Just Last Week

“There is a history of domestic incidents at the home, police said. The man’s mental state was also evaluated by Unified Police within the past week, Winder said….Santarromana has had multiple police-related incidents in recent weeks, including one within the last week where the man informed an officer that he was “going to take his firearm and kill him”

And yet just in from the latest article on the case posted below as the third original article titled “School Teacher Fighting For Life With Multiple Gunshot Wounds” instead of this being an ongoing history of domestic incidents, it appears the police were there only once before, just last week when Mr. Santarromana had become suicidal and they checked him into a hospital for that: “Bell said police went to the house for the first time on Aug. 15 on a suicide call. He said they checked the husband into the hospital and they also searched the home for weapons and found none.”

Here is the comment I posted in the paper. Keep in mind that my comment below was made before ANY statement was made about his “mental health” or this latest info on him being suicidal and hospitalized just the week before. (Of course I doubt they will print it anyway as they rarely do if medications are mentioned in the comment because most media work hard to protect their drug company advertising dollars.)

Our Ozzie and Harriet Lifestyle is Gone!!!

“I cannot even count the number of times I have had to call 911 since coming to visit this summer for the birth of a granddaughter! This is NOT the Salt Lake City I raised my children in! I know what changed it, do you? It is the same thing that is causing more deaths in the state than anything else…prescription drugs.

“Just because a drug is coming from a doctor does not make them any safer. PCP started out as a prescription drug. Heroin was put out as a prescription drug. LSD was patented by the makers of Prozac. And just this last week Oxycontin, which is concentrated heroin and highly addictive, was FDA approved for children as young as 11 years old!

“We now have prescription drugs on the market that have both suicidal and homicidal ideation as listed side effects – which means compulsive thoughts and actions about homicide and suicide.

“Why? Why do we allow this? It is now right in our backyards and we still continue to ignore it.”

Everyone’s Neighborhood Everywhere Is Being Affected

This is happening in everyone’s backyard across America and spreading rapidly around the world. News used to be boring but we now live in a war zone! The Ozzie and Harriet life we all once knew is gone with all of the violence we now have in our society as a result of these drugs. Yet the ones profiting are continuing to get away with it because they know how to buy off nearly everyone involved.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A 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.

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 demonstrating that the key to human violence is excess serotonin – exactly what antidepressants are designed to produce:

Common Drugs: Celebrex, Advil, Motrin, Aleve Gain Serous New FDA Warnings on Heart Attack & Stroke

NSAIDs Warnings: “Today we know that the risk of heart attack and stroke may occur early in treatment, even in the first weeks … “There is no period of use shown to be without risk”

The warning about using NSAIDs with antidepressants came out long ago. When taken together the combination can cause gastrointestinal bleeding.

Which common drugs are we talking about? From the FDA website: “Common OTC NSAIDs include ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). In addition, some combination medicines that relieve various symptoms, such as multi-symptom cold products, contain NSAIDs.”

Just last month the FDA issued new even stronger Black Box Warnings on these drugs used daily by most everyone. They are very serious warnings, so much so that since they have made little headline news I want to make sure you are all aware of this. Such strong warnings are these additions to their Black Box Warning that we have articles with titles as, “Picked Out a Coffin Yet? Take Ibuprofen and Die” Please do not miss a word of this post!

Most Vulnerable & Deadly Period of Prescription Use for Patients

Why isn’t this headline news when people take tons of these chemicals everyday thinking they’ve been thoroughly tested and are totally safe? Now we find out that’s not the case. But what is new? This is the main reason we formed the International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org) two decades ago as stated in our mission statement. We send out warnings like this during the most vulnerable period for patients – between when the FDA issues approval until the warnings and withdrawing from the market comes on prescription drugs.

Note this statement by the doctor whose study got the NSAIDs Vioxx pulled closely followed by the removal of the NSAID Bextra: “Dr. Steven Nissen, chief of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, agrees with the evidence that these drugs do increase a person’s risk for heart attack and stroke. He says the warning, though is vague but has to be because there is no good data to give consumers or doctors a definitive answer.

“What patients need to know is, if you take the drugs, ‘What is my risk of heart attack?’ and that’s not known yet,” Nissen says. He blames this on the drugs being approved before current vigorous outcome data was required by the FDA.

“Nissen told CNN, “the writing has been on the wall for a long time.” After all, he is no stranger to these concerns. His 2001 study was the first to raise a red flag over the drug Vioxx, a COX-2 inhibitor, made by Merck, that was pulled from the market. On the heels of that, another COX-2 inhibitor, Bextra, was withdrawn.”

The FDA has known for years that taking popular nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), Aleve, and Celebrex may be dangerous for your heart. It was a decade ago, in 2005, when the agency first warned that taking NASIDs increases your risk of heart attack or stroke, either of which can be fatal.

Of course that warning did not come until after Vioxx, also an NSAID, caused up to 140,000 heart attacks in the five-year period it was on the market (it was pulled from the market in 2004).

Now Serious Black Box Warnings on NSAIDs

“Today we know that the risk of heart attack and stroke may occur early in treatment, even in the first weeks …

“There is no period of use shown to be without risk,” says Judy Racoosin, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director of FDA’s Division of Anesthesia, Analgesia, and Addiction Products.”

– FDA website (See specific warnings below)

Everyone needs to understand if a drug is in a class of drugs like Vioxx was with all these other NSAIDs they work the same way, therefore, they are capable of producing similar results in the way of adverse effects. So when one is pulled from the market all of them really SHOULD also be pulled. Why do we wait for years for these warnings?!! I have been issuing this warning from the day the information came out on Vioxx. What is that saying? Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result?

In light of that information about drugs in the same class should all have the same warning I thought this statement from the FDA website about asprin was very interesting: “(Although aspirin is also an NSAID, this revised warning doesn’t apply to aspirin.)” For me that would mean the same warning should apply just as this warning should have come out for all NSAIDs back when Vioxx was pulled instead of waiting another decade to issue this warning for all the others. But because doctors have been telling people for years to take asprin to prevent heart attacks, they may be worried about the backlash of wrongful death suits that may follow if they include asprin. All I can say is that after this warning I am just really grateful that somehow at age 18 I knew enough to stop the use of asprin or anything like it! This makes me extremely grateful for my knowledge of herbs and essential oils and other alternative treatments.

HEART WARNING IS FOR PRESCRIPTION AND OTC NSAIDs

So the heart warning was already included in the Black Box Warning for these drugs, but because they are so widely used, and because of the new review, the FDA, has finally strengthened the warning.

The new warning was recommended after reviewing safety information on both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) NSAIDs, including observational studies, a large combined analysis of clinical trials, and additional scientific publications.

The FDA’s New Black Box Warning Includes:

#1 Your risk of heart attack or stroke may increase as early as the first weeks of using an NSAID .

#2 Your risk may increase the longer you use the NSAID.

#3 The risk appears greater at higher doses.

#4 NSAIDs can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke in patients with or without heart disease or risk factors for heart disease.

#5 Patients with heart disease or risk factors for it have a greater likelihood of heart attack or stroke following NSAID use than patients without these risk factors because they have a higher risk at baseline.

#6 Patients treated with NSAIDs following a first heart attack were more likely to die in the first year after the heart attack compared to patients who were not treated with NSAIDs after their first heart attack.

#7 There is an increased risk of heart failure with NSAID use.

#8 The FDA stressed that patient and doctor alike should “remain alert for heart-related side effects” the entire time NSAIDs are being taken.

#9 They can occur after just a couple of weeks of use and even if you’re healthy and have no risk factors for heart disease

But that is not all….

Not just heart risks, but ulcers and perferation of stomach or intestines

NSAIDs, including even OTC options like aspirin, are notorious for being hard on your gastrointestinal tract, leading to potentially fatal side effects such as bleeding in your digestive tract, ulcers and perforation of your stomach or intestines! In fact asprin is known to cause as many deaths each year as AIDs.

Commonly Prescribed for Joint Pain, Yet May Destroy Carlilage & Joints

Although NSAIDs are one of the most common drug classes used to treat joint pain, they may actually disrupt cartilage synthesis and actually speed up the destruction of your cartilage and joints.

VINNY EASTWOOD IN NEW ZEALAND TUESDAY INTERVIEWS ANN BLAKE TRACY

NEW ZEALAND’S VINNY EASTWOOD SHOW

Get a better view of what is going on around the world with the use of antidepressants as Vinny Eastwood out of New Zealand interviews Ann Blake Tracy once again about the serotonin nightmare in which we all now find ourselves.

Are you aware that in New Zealand Pharma has such tight control that it is against the law to even tell anyone that a loved one has died of suicide?! What an incredible way to cover up what is happening as a result of your antidepressant drugs?! When research has shown all along that depression, anxiety, mania (Bipolar), schizophrenia, Autism, etc. all have one thing in common – ELEVATED levels of serotonin and serotonin is what LSD mimics to produce its hallucinogenic effects – how did they ever convince the world that these were problems of LOW serotonin levels for which we all need to take serotonin elevating drugs?! Now our world is full of all of those conditions which are all adverse reactions to these antidepressants.

As if it is not bad enough that they place gag orders on the hundreds of settlements here in America that they have made on suicide cases unless they happened to be aware as our past NJ Director, Lisa Williams, was in refusing to take a gag order in her daughter’s Paxil-induced suicide attempt case. (The 911 call you hear in this video at the beginning and the end on the site Kurt Danish set up for all those in prison as a result of these antidepressant medications http://www.thesaveproject.com/ is the call Lisa’s son made for his sister when she suffered a suicidal ideation reaction to Paxil.)

Unfortunately most families left behind in these tragedies had no idea they could even refuse a gag order and they continue to live in fear that the drug company may cut off the retribution payments or sue them for what they have already been paid. Unjust? Criminal? Without any doubt! Gag orders need to be banned along with these drugs!

Tune in Tuesday evening for the Vinny Eastwood interview at www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com at 10:00 PM Eastern, 9:00 PM Central, 8:00 PM Mountain, 7:00 PM Pacific or listen in on the podcast later.

ANTIDEPRESSANT ALTERNATIVES: Service Animals Are Incredible For Depression….With Exceptions!

DEPRESSION HELP?

“He said … it’s my service animal.

And I’m allowed to have it because it helps me with my depression”

Although animals are a great stress reliever and I have always advocated for the use of service animals apparently you need to beware that there are restrictions to that. A service boa constrictor brought into a restaurant in Missouri was not much of a stress reliever for all of the other patrons at this Missouri restaurant. LOL!

Come to think of it though …. most everyone I know who has had to deal with the adverse effects and after effects of the antidepressants and benzos given for depression would far rather have taken their chances with a boa constrictor than to go through what they have on these deadly and highly addictive drugs!

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Couple rattles diner’s nerves with snake ‘service animal’

The Missouri couple said the reptile was their service animal.

MISSOURI — Snake wasn’t on the menu of a Missouri restaurant, but that’s what patrons got — along with a side of rattled nerves

A reptile, thought to be a boa constrictor, was brought into an eatery in Nixa this week, sending some fleeing.

Lisa Loeffelholz told CNN affiliate KYTV that she spotted a couple holding the snake and “it started to slither down into the booth behind her.”

That’s when Loeffelholz says she notified the restaurant manager — who said the couple insisted the snake was a “service animal” and the restaurant should allow it to stay.

The Missouri couple said the reptile was their service animal.

But just the sight of the woman apparently pulling the animal and then handing it over to the man at the table was enough to make Loeffelholz confront the snake handlers about their slippery excuse.

“He said … it’s my service animal. And I’m allowed to have it because it helps me with my depression,” she told the affiliate.

The snake may have had a calming effect on the couple … but by no means can it legally be deemed a “service animal.”

The American with Disabilities Act states “only dogs are recognized as service animals.”

And if the snake posed a concern for public safety, then patrons could have notified police or animal control, according to Nixa city’s communications director, Jill Finney.

“Management didn’t know what to do, because they didn’t want to violate anybody’s rights, and that’s understandable,” Finney told the affiliate.

ANTIDEPRESSANT: BIZZARE CASE: Missing Woman Found Safe Days After Disappearance

Last week Connie Ditto, 41, suffered head injury. (Hopefully you all recall how many times I have repeated that if someone has suffered a head injury they are at a much greater risk of serious adverse reactions to antidepressants. So serious are the adverse reactions that warnings of this should be as strong as the antidepressant Wellbutrin package insert details.)

Tuesday Connie went missing after sending some bizarre text messages to her husband.

“He said his wife has battled both alcohol abuse [The alcohol cravings are yet another adverse reaction to antidepressant use as detailed here: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssris-and-alcohol/] and depression in her life.

“Last week, he said, she hurt her head in a fall. Mark Ditto said he feared her disappearance may be the result of an internal injury she either failed to disclose or did not know about.”

missing mom

This text message above is the last he heard from his wife and after that her phone was turned off. It was learned that none of this was true. According to video recordings of the waiting room Connie Ditto had gone to the walk-in clinic, sat down for about two minutes, and then got up and walked out.

This afternoon police located her and have released only the following:

“Henrico police said late Friday afternoon that missing mother Connie Ditto has been found safe….Police said this is an ongoing investigation and additional information may still be released.”

I have written before about the missing as a result of these drugs. One of the very first cases I ever worked was a young teenage girl who disappeared for three months and could not even tell her parents where she had been and what had happened during the several months she was gone. Few realize how common amnesia is with antidepressants. And not so rare is hearing patients repeat the phrase that they have lost track of who they are or have no idea it they will ever be the person they were before taking an antidepressant.

And this case sounds all too familiar to the case of a Utah woman I posted before who went missing last year in a bizarre case and was later foud dead. That story can be found here: http://www.drugawareness.org/antidepressant-kayelyn-louder-autopsy-inconclusive-after-body-found-of-woman-who-disappeared/

We have recently started a Facebook group to address this aspect of adverse reactions to antidepressants. It is called: Antidepressant-Induced Missing & Homeless and can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/384573685069360/

And hopefully one woman in our group will soon be able to write up her story for us as her husband has now been missing for 10 years after starting on antidepressants!

The latest update in this case is that Connie is now making accusations that Mark assaulted her – another all too common reaction to antidepressants – the false allegations of abuse. From the latest article we read: “He didn`t want to go on camera yet, but he said the allegations are totally false, and her own daughters made statements to that effect.”

We also have a new Facebook Group for that as well and I have a DVD on the issue of the false allegations and what causes them. Here is a link to the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=878496472235198

Psych Drug Recovery: Fanta – Flight of the Bumblebee. Don’t let anyone tell you it cannot be done.

Fanta – Flight of the Bumblebee

Fanta’s lesson for those working to recover from the devastation of all mind altering medications. Don’t let anyone tell you it cannot be done.

“You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” – George Horace Lorimer

Whenever you need a dose of hope and faith in the future just watch little Fanta’s fight to recover after being pulled out of a pile of dead sheep where the newborn had been left for dead only a couple of weeks ago. She will warm your heart and give you hope. Watch her story here:

Flight of the Bumblebee from Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary on Vimeo.

https://www.facebook.com/edgarsmission/videos/10154038159800130/?fallback=1

Note that they think she also suffered brain damage due to lack of oxygen during delivery so what she was working to overcome is not far from what you are all dealing with as well. Give the body and brain what they need to recover and they will respond.

Please go to our website at www.drugawareness.org to see the alternatives we have found to help rebuild after medications. My CD on withdrawal also has additional information on rebuilding.

NEVER GIVE UP HOPE!!!!!

ANTIDEPRESSANT-INDUCED SUICIDE OF ROBIN WILLIAMS AKA MURDER & HOW PHARMA PROFITED

Today is the One Year Anniversary of Robin Williams’ Death

According to Newsweek the death of Robin Williams caused an unprecedented mark on suicide hotline which suicide prevention experts are still trying to make sense of.

“The impact has continued into this calendar year. In 2015, visits to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s web site have been up 60 percent. Local call lines have also seen an impact; the Crisis Services hotline in Buffalo, New York, for instance, says that it has seen a 15 percent increase in call volume during the first seven months of 2015 compared with the same period in 2014. Executive director Jessica C. Pirro notes Williams’s suicide and encouragement to seek help as a possible cause.

“At the time of the loss [of Williams], there was such an enormous spike in interest in the whole topic of suicide,” says Robert Gebbia, the CEO of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). “We saw increases at the time in calls to the crisis line, visits to the website.… Like most things, it certainly waned a bit. But I think there was a lasting bump in interest in our society by people around the country.”

And just how much money did Pharma pull in from that “lasting bump in interest” surrounding suicide and the hotlines set up by who?

Just WHO is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention?

You do not need to look very far to find out who is behind this organization. As you will recall I recently put out an article on how Senator Charles Grassley found in a Senate probe that NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness, is funded 80% by Pharma.

Well at first glance this American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a couple of very interesting fellows as directors on their Board. First of all there is Charles B. Nemeroff, M.D., Ph.D. now at the University of Miami after a Senate probe found that he had hidden millions in income from Pharma as the department chair in Psychiatry for Emory University. Which you can find information on in this older blog I put out on him: http://www.drugawareness.org/grassley-seeks-more-info-on-conflict-of-interest-policies-at-medical-schools-3/

Interestingly Dr. Nemeroff was also the lead featured speaker this year at the American Psychiatric Association convention.

Another noted director on their board is J. John Mann, M.D. from Columbia University Medical Center. John Mann is quoted extensively in my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!, because of his extensive research on serotonin which basically proves the serotonin hypothesis behind antidepressants to be completely backwards.

Andy Vickery who has been the lead attorney in fighting the majority of suicide cases nationwide against the makers of SSRI antidepressants referred to Dr. Mann at the 2006 FDA hearing as a “Pharma Whore” which becomes quite apparent when you read his early research on serotonin and then hear him speak about it when under oath in court or hear the opposite from him when he testifys to the FDA. Under oath he says when antidepressants work by impairing serotonin metabolism (which they all do) they will produce impulsive murder or suicide. When testifying to the FDA you will hear the exact opposite come out of his mouth about the safety of these drugs.

So How Much Did Pharma Make By Killing Robin Williams?

So just how much money did Pharma make by Robin Williiam’s dying on the SNRI antidepressant Remeron – one of the two SNRI antidepressants Andrea Yates was taking when she drowned her five children? Obviously Robin’s death brought in a whole lot of new customers who are now addicted to these very highly addictive antidepressant medications. And how many of them have now already lost their lives in the way Robin lost his?

This will make money for Phama for many years to come. Robins’ death, just as all the other suicides and murder-suicides induced by their antidepressants, was not a sad and tragic thing for them as it was for the rest of us who know well how he really died and how all the rest of them died. I am sure they still smile all the way to the bank! Profiting from murder is what this is….beyond blood money! How long will it go on before the world wakes up to this biggest lie of all that surrounds us?
