INTERNATIONAL COALITION FOR DRUG AWARENESS
I am concerned that even though you are on our mailing list or in one of our Facebook groups many of you have little idea who we are, or fully understand what we do, or how badly we need your help to stop this true pandemic of dangerous prescription drugs that now seems to be invading nearly every family in this country & many more around the world. We have been fighting this battle for truth as the first international group established warning specifically about serotonergic medications like antidepressants, the newer atypical anti-psychotics, diet pills, various pain medications, stop smoking meds, etc. as well as many other prescription & even over the counter medications.
So I am sending this to you today to share our mission statement with info which I am sure you will find shocking as you learn just how far reaching the negative impact of these drugs really is & the politics behind them. As this issue spreads with so many more now consuming their products – there has been a 40% increase in the use of these drugs known to produce not only impulsive, out of character violence & suicide, arson, theft or embezzlement, child abuse but so much more! The following information is critical to have. You need to learn how to protect your loved ones just as I had to do this past week when my own 14 year old grandson faced a potentially fatal situation while with me & also lost a classmate to suicide while the school pushes to medicate the rest of his class as a preventative & many of my close friends have reported suicides of loved ones & one is facing total family embarrassment after an elderly cousin, whose sons hold key positions in the local area, completely out of character shocked the whole family & community as they learned he had embezzled almost a million dollars & it gets even worse from there – all just this past week & all related to the widespread use of these drugs by multiple individuals.
In fact if you have heard my interviews over the past 30 years you have heard me voice concerns over abrupt changes in dose of these drugs yet we are facing that with Zoloft for patients now. According to the FDA’s website, sertraline/Zoloft shortages on some brands and formulations are expected to last up to 60 days. If you’re concerned about the availability of your prescription, call your pharmacist to discuss your concerns, and don’t stop or change your medication because doing so will throw you into cold turkey withdrawal which the FDA has warned can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. Please go to our website and look up drugawareness.org/alternatives and look at Noni juice (cheapest price on that is found at WalMart online) and the CES device recommended there or the CBD oil Charlotte’s Web and other alternatives to help get you through a cold turkey withdrawal.
[DRUG TOPICS, October 23, 1995, pg. 14-16.]
Critical to point out from this 1995 study above done by pharmacists in an attempt to curb the high number of prescription drug deaths they found that every year approximately 200,000 die from prescription drug reactions when taking medications “AS PRESCRIBED, NOT ABUSED”. That is as many deaths every week as we suffered in this country on 9/11! So America went to war for over almost two decades now for an attack that killed as many as we see die from medications every week?!!
What is wrong with our focus on the “drug war” when 200,000 die each year from prescription drugs, especially when the large majority of illegal drugs are just old prescription drugs removed from the market after society woke up & banned them after deadly trial & error?
Billions of dollars go into illegal drug issues in this country every year even though far more are dying from legal drugs. Everyone is asking, “Where is the FDA?” They are busy approving another new drug. And how many more will die from that one?
A two-year Los Angeles Times investigation published in December 2000 found that the seven medications approved since 1993 have been withdrawn after reports of deaths and severe side effects. In the article written by Times Staff Writer David Willam, it states, “The FDA approved each of those drugs while disregarding danger signs or blunt warnings from its own specialists. Then, after receiving reports of significant harm to patients, the agency was slow to seek withdrawals.” Nothing has changed!
MORTON MINTZ & THE THERAPEUTIC NIGHTMARE
Morton Mintz, a former Washington Post reporter, and a Nieman Fellow who won the Raymond Clapper award for reporting the thalidomide tragedy published a book in 1965 entitled, THE THERAPEUTIC NIGHTMARE. See how drug companies then used the same tactics to get their drugs out to the public then as we see them doing now… https://youtu.be/6uizvsiaHyw
His warnings about Thalidomide kept the drug off the market in the US thereby preventing this outcome for many babies in America. His warnings if heeded fully then, and the warnings coming from many other men of great integrity since then, could have spared us the agony we have experienced from medication tragedies since that time as well as those we are literally engulfed in today. He begins his book with, “Here we shall see that there have been instances when our excessive trust in certain Corporate Consciences has been rewarded with inadequately and even fraudulently tested drugs, with useless drugs and inferior versions of good drugs, with protraction of illness, and with waste of our money. In order that sales may begin and continue, regardless of whether we are healed and spared pain, evidence of serious and even lethal effects has been withheld from the responsible government agency and concealed from the medical profession and the public.” (p.xiv)
We wish to honor him here (and those who have followed in his footsteps) in their unending efforts to warn us of the serious problems associated with these so called “medications” we have come to blindly trust.
Look at the over 50 thousand who died of heart attacks on Vioxx which even surpassed the diet pill deaths while Viagra (still on the market!) has been found to produce five times that number of heart attacks!
What do you know about the medication you are currently taking?
What do you know about the dangers of taking the drugs you are taking when they have been prescribed in combination yet never been safety tested in combination with one another?
Even more frightening to ask is “What does your doctor know or not know about the answers to these questions?”
Drugs like Chantix, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Stratera, Effexor, Remeron, Pristiq, Anafranil, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Brisdelle, etc. are some of the biggest money makers ever for the pharmaceutical companies.
Add to that the fact that the study being used to gain FDA approval of this medication demonstrates that the rate of mania among children taking Prozac was three times higher than it is for adults. Three out of 100 had to drop out of the study due to this devastating complication which developed within a short eight-week trial!

Press 1 to ask questions or make a comment. Ann Blake Tracy is the director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. She has specialized for over 20 years in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications. She has testified since 1992 as an expert witness in Prozac and other SSRI related court cases around the world. During the last twenty years she has participated in radio, television, newspaper and magazine interviews. Covid 19 Drug: Is your medication one of the 332 with interactions to Hydroxychloroquine? Tune in to Blog Talk Radio Channel Hidden Truth Revealed – The Inside Scoop. F.A.C.E.U.S. (Families Against Court Embezzlement Unethical Standards)
After working as an expert witness in court cases involving antidepressants since 1992 I will tell you that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is clearly one of the finest attorneys the world has ever seen & I have had the opportunity to work with some of the very finest in this country and other countries. He has an excellent understanding of the science he is talking about with these drugs & knows how to argue the point very well as he presents the evidence.
This is a long and quite thorough interview but I encourage you to at least listen to the first half hour of the interview to see what he discloses about how Pharma controls so much of our lives and our health. He is discussing Pharma and the way they do business and how they buy their way to get what they want.
And in the end of this interview Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. also discusses the assassinations of his father, Robert F. Kennedy, and his uncle, President John F. Kennedy and his own investigations into what really happened in both deaths. These atrocities tie into WHO gave us the antidepressants and why.
That information you can find as you read through past posts on our website (www.drugawareness.org) titled “Where Did Your Medication Come From?,” plus any other post on George H.W. Bush, past head of the CIA who was intricately involved in Operation Paperclip – the CIA operation where 1600 Nazi scientists were brought to America after WWII, past head of Eli Lilly who put the first SSRI antidepressant on the market thereby paving the way for all of its many clones (Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Cymbalta, etc., etc., etc.), and also the person who changed the FDA’s approval regulations to squeeze the SSRI antidepressants through the FDA approval process and on the market with greatly reduced scrutiny.
If you are not yet aware of the bribe that got these drugs on the market to begin with you need to listen to this interview:
Meet Dr. John Virapen the man who bought Prozac’s approval. “I indirectly contributed to the death of people, whose shadows now haunt me.”
And Robert F. Kennedy, Jr’s younger brother, Douglas, understands more than most reporters about these deadly antidepressant drugs and we owe him much because he has done more media to expose the dangers of these drugs than any other reporter in America for which we should all be extremely grateful. I will include some of his news coverage below the link to his brother’s interview.

“And I’m talking to him and telling him, ‘I’m sorry you’re feeling like this, but can you just talk to me?'” But he refused.
Delacruz said that Tello stood up and looked at himself in the mirror before reaching under the mattress and pulling out a gun.
Tello turned from the mirror, cocked his gun, and pointed it at her.
“You’re not going to shoot my baby,” she told him. But before she could push him away, the gun went off…
“Then I turn around and I see my son,” she continued. “My son is on the floor and he’s turning blue.”
Both of these cases are classic antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) cases which I discuss extensively in my book on these drugs. It was not until a 2003 New York Times article that I learned of Dr. Carlos Schenck’s work in documenting the link we had discussed in 1992 between the SSRI antidepressants and RBD which I was seeing so often in these cases. I learned in the article that Dr. Schenck had gone back through his records and found that about 45% of the patients his sleep disorder clinic had diagnosed with RBD were on antidepressants.
Those results were high enough that he felt they should investigate that link further and launched a study to address the link directly. What they found in the study was an astounding 86% of the patients diagnosed with this most deadly of sleep disorders where you act out nightmares in a sleep state were taking antidepressants (80% on SSRIs & 6% on the tricyclic antidepressants)!
This should not only be a Black Box Warning on these drugs but should also be headline news worldwide! And yet it has now been over a quarter of a century since I first sounded the warning in my book about this most deadly side effect and testified to the FDA about it in 2004. All while we still wait for any warning to patients or an unsuspecting public who could be put in danger at any time like these two families have been!
And we still wait for research to be done on how often this is found in abrupt or rapid withdrawal from these drugs since it has LONG been known as an a drug withdrawal state! If Dr. Schenck found 86% of the cases involve those taking an antidepressant, just how high can it be expected in withdrawal from these drugs? The question the whole world deserves an answer to!!!

Although Mark Taylor was dubbed the Columbine Wonder Boy by the media when Columbine happened because he survived being shot 6 – 13 times by Eric Harris & spent all he had in a lawsuit against the drug maker of the antidepressant Eric was on that caused Columbine hoping to put and end to the school shootings, he has remained in a facility being drugged for a decade with the very drugs he was blowing the whistle on. All because of an ANONYMOUS call to report that he had made a threat to blow up a book store. Visions of Nazi Germany?
Richard Castaldo, who appeared in Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine with Mark & was parallelized in the shooting while eating lunch with Rachel Scott, is now homeless & in a nursing facility recovering from MRSA. Both boys still carry bullets lodged in their bodies from that day…see all the evidence in videos below that Columbine & the majority of school shootings since were caused by the adverse effects of antidepressants… https://www.9news.com/article/news/local/next/columbine-shooting-richard-castaldo-homeless-colorado/73-a7a6f52b-8a96-4dcb-a320-e9c870b3ff02
All the while people wonder why 21 years later these shootings continue. All of the videos & information below will explain that the reason they continue is the media has refused to carry the real story about how & why Columbine actually happened & why they have worked so hard to keep Mark Taylor quiet after he got so much attention telling the FDA that the Pharmaceutical giants need to be considered “terrorists” & while antidepressants need to be considered “accomplices to murder.”
Study to evaluate antidepressant as potential COVID-19 treatment – the same antidepressant that triggered Columbine!
Drug fluvoxamine may help prevent life-threatening ‘cytokine storm’
The following article really is NOT an article from the Onion, the publication that puts on seemingly ridiculous articles that appear to be real news. Sadly, this one is real! Hopefully St. Louis is in complete lockdown and stay far away from anyone diagnosed with Covid19 who may be part of this study!
Ironically just yesterday I spoke with a prison chaplain in Utah who called to tell me that for years he had wondered why a particular prisoner he had come to really respect was even in prison, much less serving such a long term. He finally decided to ask the prisoner. He was shocked to learn that as a youth this person was part of a research study on an antidepressant in Provo, Utah and as a result killed two people!
Please note that at the end of this article is a phone number and email address to contact this research team. I encourage all of you to call or email your response. Here is my letter in reply:
I have served as the expert for Columbine survivor Mark Taylor in his lawsuit against Solvay Pharmaceutical’s Luvox from early on in that mass killing when Eric Harris shot Mark 6 -13 times and 12 of his classmates and a teacher were killed. Here Mark is letting the FDA know what he thinks of their lack of oversight at the 2004 FDA hearing on antidepressant safety: https://www.drugawareness.org/mark-taylors-testimony-before-the-fda-9132004/
And since I have been testifying as an expert in these antidepressant-induced criminal cases since 1992 I have no doubt whatsoever that I will be seeing you in a courtroom soon!!! Just the Prozac-induced murder case of Alyssa Bustamante, 15, who killed her 9 year old neighbor girl right in your backyard should have woken you up years ago https://youtu.be/13_797rv3qI
Serotonin is the key to human violence which you would know if you had read the research on serotonin before so much of it was falsified to sell these deadly drugs. https://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/
