NOTE FROM ANN: This week has been filled with family tragedies & two close family members currently hospitalized in serious condition. Therefore getting our news out about our own “Cyber Monday” is late & therefore extended throughout this week into a “Cyber Monday – Friday”! Our way of saying Merry Christmas to all of you as well!!
Ann B Tracy has boldly gone where few dare to tread…” Everything your doctor does not know & drug companies hope NO ONE ever learns about serotonin & Serotonergic medications (all antidepressants, atypical anti-psychotics & some pain killers) Also contains information on safe & successful withdrawal.
Best deal of all!!!! For only $30 you can have a full month to access & download more info on antidepressants than you can get anywhere else on the planet – everything we have to offer!!!! You get the book, withdrawal MP3, all DVD’s available, & about 50 media interviews (some 3 hours long!) over the past 25 years! You will know more than most experts about these drugs with all this information! And don’t tell our webmaster I said this, but then all you need to do is cancel the subscription after you download everything. 🙂 🙂 🙂
It is WAY PAST TIME that the whole world become experts on these drugs because we are all surrounded by those on the drugs whether we take them personally or not! Let’s wake up the world to the dangers of these drugs with all the information in this deal!
Here blow are two reports from those who have used this information to come off these drugs & restore their lives – as you will see both previously had their lives & health severely negatively impacted by antidepressants for many years before learning there is an easier way to come off these drugs & rebuild when you understand more about how the drugs work….
#1 Successful Antidepressant Withdrawal After Ten Years Use #2 Is Rebirth Possible After Serotonergic Medications?
In Dallas, TX 55 years ago today we lost John F. Kennedy in a tragic assassination. We pause today in the middle of this serotonin-induced holocaust, which I have come to call World War III, to honor the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy. This is a war being waged against us all via chemical warfare rather than guns. And after 3 decades of research into these serotonergic drugs I have come to firmly believe President Kennedy was murdered because of his attempt to prevent this from happening to us all which I will explain in detail as you read on.
Because this tragedy happened so long ago before many of you were born, you never had the opportunity to learn much about President Kennedy or the goals he had for our country. Here is a 5 minute YouTube video posted this morning of him speaking about his plans to put an end to this secret society working to destroy our country, our freedoms & our very lives – our modern day Trojan horse – pharmaceuticals….
John F. Kennedy, Jr
President Kennedy had a son while serving as president, John, Jr. who was only 3 when his father was assasinated.
Sadly in July of 1999 we we’re given the news that we lost his son JFK, Jr. in a plane crash just before he was to announce his run for senator in New York State against Hillary Clinton. As everyone loved him there was no question that he would have won that race.
(Now before anyone gets the idea this is a political post you are WRONG & I would advise you to continue reading in order to see all these connections & WHO all is behind the damage you have suffered because of these drugs, not only to you, but to our whole country & at this point the whole world. And as upsetting as you may find this information, whatever you do PLEASE remember that coming off too rapidly can prove to be the most dangerous thing you can do!)
But John had once made the following statement about the death of his father, “I will expose my father’s killers no matter who they are – even if I have to bring down the government.” … JFK, Jr.
John, Jr’s mother, it is rumored, thought Lyndon Johnson had something to do with her husband’s death. But who did John blame for his father’s death? He blamed George Bush, Sr., whose father worked closely with the Nazi’s, had extensive ties to Pharma & later headed the same group I always thought was behind his death, the CIA, who President Kennedy wanted to dissolve along with the Federal Reserve.
George Bush, Sr.
I do hope you noticed in the short video above that President Kennedy, like President Trump, also went after the press & had little good to say about them. And seemingly unbeknownst to most Americans JFK, Jr. & President Trump were friends. It also appears that what President Trump has been saying about going after the “Deep State” is no different than what President Kennedy was saying about going after this “secret group” behind our government, a “shadow government”.
So is President Trump working to fulfill the plan of President Kennedy as well as make good on the vow of his friend John, Jr. to bring those who killed his father to justice? It certainly appears to me that this is the case because every morning in the White House under the direction of our 45th President, the following prayer is given daily in the Oval Office:
“Rest in peace Mr. President (JFK), through your wisdom and strength, since your tragic death, Patriots have planned, installed, and by the grace of God, activated, the beam of LIGHT. We will forever remember your sacrifice. May you look down from above and continue to guide us as we ring the bell of FREEDOM and destroy those who wish to sacrifice our children, our way of life, and our world. We, the PEOPLE.”
President Kennedy’s Nephew Douglas Kennedy
While working for Fox News Douglas Kennedy did more reporting on the dangers of antidepressants than any other news reporter in the world. He understood the issues surrounding these drugs very well & worked hard to get the warning out about them. Sadly, as with all of us, family can be the most difficult to teach about these drugs, & Douglas lost a sister-in-law to a Zoloft-induced suicide, Robert Kennedy, Jr’s wife. Hopefully her children understand & as all children they retain their right to file a wrongful death suit for a parent until 2 years after they turn 21. And I just learned tonight of more of my own close family members in trouble on these drugs.
But here is one of several reports Douglas Kennedy has done on Fox which you can find more of on our YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/icfda/videos
Connections to the Battle for Truth About These Drugs
Now onto the additional connections to this battle for truth about these drugs…
For those of you who have read my book you will already see many of those connections. And I will include below one section of the book that does go into that.
Where to begin? First there was Preston Bush, George Sr.’s father, & grandfather to our latest President Bush. He was a US Senator who helped to fund both sides of WWII, & had close enough ties to Hitler, I G Farben, eugenics, population control, & the Nazi’s that according to what we now know he should have been prosecuted for high crimes. Was involved in getting the European headquarters for the CIA set up in the IG Farben pharmaceutical head office!
If you click & listen to the following link from about the 42 minute mark to the end you will find that information. And during the CIAs’ Operation Paperclip, which apparently both Preston Bush & George Sr were involved with, 1600 Nazi scientists were brought to America to continue their research!
Here is additional information on both George, Sr’s, & George, Jr’s, Pharma ties…
“After leaving the CIA in 1977, Bush was made director of Eli Lilly by none other than Dan Quayle’s father and family, who owned controlling interest in the Lilly company and the Indianapolis Star. Dan Quayle later acted as go-between for drug kingpins, gun runners, and government officials in the Iran-Contra scandals.
“The entire Bush family was large stockholders in Lilly, Abbott, Bristol, and Pfizer, etc. After Bush’s disclosure of assets in 1979, it became public that Bush’s family still had a large interest in Pfizer and substantial amounts of stock in the other aforementioned drug companies.
“In fact, Bush actively lobbied illegally both within and without the Administration as Vice President in 1981 to permit drug companies to dump more unwanted, obsolete, or, especially, domestically-banned substances on unsuspecting Third World countries.
“While Vice President, Bush continued to illegally act on behalf of pharmaceutical companies by personally going to the IRS for special tax breaks for certain drug companies (e.g. Lilly) manufacturing in Puerto Rico.
“While Vice President, Bush continued to illegally act on behalf of pharmaceutical companies by personally going to the IRS for special tax breaks for certain drug companies (e.g. Lilly) manufacturing in Puerto Rico. In 1982, Vice President Bush was personally ordered to stop lobbying the IRS on behalf of the drug companies by the U.S. Supreme Court itself.”
Apparently once George, Sr. became President he used different powers to assist his friends in the pharmaceutical industry. As Eli Lilly prepared to bring their first SSRI antidepressant to the market they needed a favor & knew who had vested interests to help them. So the current President Bush changed the laws at the FDA to allow for “Fast Track” approvals of pharmaceuticals allowing Prozac to be approved on only 5 & 6 week studies. And several years later as George, Jr became president he tacked on a policy to a bill to prevent lawsuits for damages against pharmaceuticals.
And to get the full picture behind the CIA & their interest in getting these drugs on the market after Congress banned their drug if choice for mind control you can find all that explained in the following post from that section of my book on these drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
If this is indicative of the typical one week of arrests in a major city, can anyone else see what it is behind America’s crime wave? As much as anyone wants to cry about banning guns, this makes it far more than obvious that mind-altering substances, whether currently legal or currently illegal, are clearly the biggest cause of crime in America today! Click the link below to see these mug shots & tell me what you think….
These are mug shots from only one week’s worth of arrests in Phoenix, Arizona. Now after looking in their faces I want you to tell me just how many of these 75 individuals appear to be conscious enough to you to be able of forming “intent to commit” a crime … to intentionally commit a crime?
In all my years of tracking cases to see how often antidepressants are involved in various crimes I had never stopped to actually look at the mugshots of those being arrested. As often as I have had police officers say over the past three decades that all they do anymore is run a psych ward, nothing has brought that statement to clarity as looking through these mug shots! I have never seen so many “Prozac eyes” in one place!
Keep in mind that it has been known for decades the role serotonin plays in consciousness & in producing psychosis. Can we afford as a society to have so many increasing serotonin with antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, Gabapentin, triptans, etc., etc., etc. when research has so long demonstrated the end result of that to be brain damage, depression, anxiety, psychosis, & impulsive murder & suicide?
I’m A Celebrity’s Iain Lee reveals he feels suicidal as he withdraws from anti-depressants… (read full article on link below)
I have been supporting those going through antidepressant withdrawal for almost 30 years & can say that if you are suicidal in withdrawal as this man is reporting, it means you are coming down too fast! It does not need to be so difficult, but sadly the warnings about this are not given to patients as they should be. Withdrawal can be the most dangerous period of using antidepressants IF you do not know HOW to withdraw gradually enough to be both safe & successful in the withdrawal.
I have warned & warned & warned of this for decades putting my first CD out on antidepressant withdrawal in 1999 just after the first big high profile antidepressant-induced school shooting in America, Columbine. I was so tired of repeating myself over & over & over again giving the specifics on how to safely come off these drugs. And I feared the media attention on this terrible shooting would result in so many more wanting off their meds that it would be impossible for me to continue giving these instructions one on one. I knew I had to give this info out in a way to reach millions and this Help! MP3 was born….
Help! I can’t get off my antidepressant/serotonergic med! MP3
Safe withdrawal from these drugs must be an EXTREMELY gradual process (months & often years) to allow the body & brain time to readjust for the drug no longer being there. There is too much of a steroid effect when these these drugs increase cortisol at such an astronomical rate (Petralgia, 1984). It took doctors a very long time to learn that withdrawal from steroids must also be an EXTREMELY gradual process & it only follows that this is also the case with these drugs.
I certainly hope this man did not just stop using the drug or cut it by half or even a quarter! If so he is learning why patients have always referred to that as “hell & back”! We have a huge support website here at www.drugawareness.org and dozens of Facebook support groups where we educate about these drugs & their effects & try to help those who have come down too quickly. But we prefer to prevent what they are currently suffering by warning before any attempt to withdraw. I have never seen a group of drugs so dangerous & difficult to withdraw from! Doctors have got to wake up to this!
Here we go again! This time in Chicago with about the strictest gun laws in the country. Another medical facility shooting…wonder if the percentage of workplace violence shootings are higher than the 60% in medical facilities they reported about four years ago? With 75% of doctors & nurses currently on antidepressants it should be higher.
This one is similar to the one in Kentucky a week or so ago as this one was trying to get into the pharmacy after killing a doctor, his ex-fiance, and the one in Kentucky was standing in line at the pharmacy. Wonder when they’re going to figure out that most violent crime is connected to drugs?!
And I wonder if anyone gave him an antidepressant to cope with her calling off their wedding just last month? If she was the one who made sure he was medicated for the depression he would have naturally suffered she should have come to our website to read this study first:
PLEASE CLICK THIS YOUTUBE LINKto learn WHO the host of this show is & how important it is to listen, like & share it to get the truth about all serotonergic medications to those who can change policy & do something about this drug-induced nightmare we are all caught up in!!!
No matter your political beliefs this man has the ability to get this information where it needs to go to make the changes we want & so desperately need!
So the more “likes” & “views” there are to this all too short 13 minute introduction to this subject, the more he will see just how many are being adversely affected by these drugs!! And that awareness will help him to see the need for more media coverage of this issue as he reaches hundreds of millions of listeners around the world…
11/9/2018 John Fredericks radio show…Featured Guest Interview with Ann Blake-Tracy, Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness (ICFDA).
John Fredericks is a member of The White House Press Corps, & one of about 75 news media people. He is one of the people who got Donald Trump to run for President in 2016. He was Trump’s 2016 Virginia Campaign Co-Chair. He is a Senior Advisor to the Trump 2020 Campaign. He is one of about 25 Trump Surrogate Spokesmen, and was a regular on CNN & HLN & he is appears daily, Monday-Friday for President Donald Trump as a surrogate spokesman on Al Jazeera, during evening prime time in The Middle East to an estimated World-Wide Audience of 80-100 Million People.
The John Fredericks Radio Network is America’s Godzilla of the TRUTH! On the John Fredericks Radio Network, we’re #TRUCKINGTHETRUTH all across America with uncompromising broadcast coverage from the Nation’s Capital! The John Frederick Radio Network is the most unique political news-talk show focused on the most important issues that impact the daily lives of everyday Americans and America comes to talk here on the truth line!
This shooting did not completely grab my attention until I heard it happened in my old home area of Thousand Oaks/Newbury Park where I lived for a year just over the hill from Dean Martin. (I was on the wrong side of the hill.) But it is a really quiet, laid back area where these things do not happen, even in bars.
The shooter Ian David Long, 28, was an ex-Marine who was honorably discharged in 2013. Curtis Kellogg, a friend who served with Long, said Long headed to Southern California to pursue a degree in sports medicine after his service in Afghanistan. And as this article does point out he had mental health issues – PTSD for which the military freely hands out antidepressants which CAUSE PTSD!
You can see in his face in these two pictures and in Heather’s pictures below the toll these drugs can take on someone. So relaxed before yet so very stressed and burned out after the cortisol levels (the stress hormone) are jacked up so high with an antidepressant (DOUBLED with only one dose!)
To see extensive video coverage of the shooting and latest updates you can go to this link to the Associated Press coverage on it:
My first thought upon hearing this news that this happened in Thousand Oaks, home of Heather Locklear, was “I hope it was not Heather going off the deep end yet again on her antidepressants!” She was arrested twice earlier this year for attacking officers and in another incident where she nearly bit off her boyfriend’s nose! No surprise with biting being such a common adverse reaction to antidepressants.
Watch the first hand account of a boy who could have been Adam Lanza or Eric Harris…learn the common denominator in 68 school shootings over the past two decades as 16-year-old Corey talks about the day he took a rifle to his high school and held 24 classmates hostage.
Here is a video list of those 68 shootings with list of related medication:
Elevated Serotonin is the Key to Violence
Everyone has heard that serotonin is this wonderful “happy” chemical we need to no longer be depressed or anxious while the research for decades before these drugs hit the market told us the exact opposite! Serotonin produces all kinds of mental issues, including depression, anxiety, suicide, psychosis, violent crime, etc.
An 18 year old student in Crimea, Russia, Vladislav Roslyakov, killed 19 of his college classmates & himself Wednesday, October 17. Below is whatc we know along with two hours total of raw footage taken of me by a Russian camera crew a decade ago for a documentary they did on these drugs in the hope it would prevent this from happening in their country.
What we know so far about this shooter/bomber:
1. Shooter was very shy, mother was a nurse & parents divorced:
“Most of what we know, so far, about Roslyakov comes from the tabloid Mash, which says he was a “shy young man who spoke to almost no one and who long ago deleted all his social media accounts.” Apparently, he also had an unhealthy interest in serial murderers. Roslyakov’s parents are reportedly divorced and he lives with his mother, who works as a nurse at a local oncology clinic.”
2. His mother was a nurse who worked on the victims & attempted suicide when told her son was the shooter. Was she on the same antidepressant her son was on? I cannot count the number of cases I have medical professionals and their family members involved in these tragedies and all on antidepressants! I have been making that statement for two decades.
“Vladislav Roslyakov, 18, stalked his college halls with a shotgun and let off homemade explosives before killing himself in the school library at Kerch Polytechnic College.
“His mother, Galina Roslyakova, a nurse in Kerch Cancer Clinic where some victims of her son’s violence were brought, was said to have been among those who provided first aid to victims. She is understood to have tried to take her own life after hearing what her son was alleged to have done.”
3. Was a fan of violent video games
“A friend was quoted saying: ‘Vlad has always admired those who killed their classmates. I talked to him about it once when we were first year students. I knew he had computer games where you shoot inside the school.
‘But I did not think he may do something like this in reality. Roslyakov did not really talk about it, we discussed it just once.’
In this video the Russian Times compared this attack to America’s Columbine massacre. And this was my comment on their video:
“I was called in as the main expert in the Columbine shooting. I would point out that the only thing you missed in comparing the two shootings was the “medications” the shooters were on. Eric Harris was on the antidepressant, Luvox, at the time of the shooting. His dose had been doubled two months before in spite of the fact that after only six weeks on Zoloft, the first similar antidepressant Eric was given, he complained of it giving him homicidal thoughts. Clearly the doctors thought the same because they took him off Zoloft. But then put him on the exact same type of drug, Luvox, although it had a different name, expecting it to have different results! Brilliant?! The world witnessed the fact that drug produced the same effect as the first antidepressant!
“Your shooter there was shy & quiet for which they often prescribe antidepressants. His mother was also a nurse who would have believed in using medications without hesitation. She too attempted suicide after the shooting. Was she on the same antidepressants her son? And what was he on? Those are critical questions that need to be answered.
“I did a long interview for a Russian news crew a decade ago for an hour long documentary they did hoping to prevent Russia from going through what we are going through here in the US. Obviously it did not get enough attention to prevent this horrific tragedy. PLEASE educate your viewers there before you end up with lists like this one of ours where 68 out of 70 shooters were all found to be taking antidepressants!!!”
Ann Blake-Tracy in Russian Documentary (Raw Footage)
This was shot near Des Moines, Iowa, late summer 2007. Senator Charles Grassley was invited, but unfortunately was in his Washington, DC office at the time & could not make it. Of course he does have a copy of my book.
Part 1: English Version (Raw Footage) of 2007 Russian Documentary
(The first 17 mins are just me visiting with the reporters. Interview begins after that.)
Bio: Ann is the author or the first book ever written on the adverse effects of SSRI antidepressant medications & other drugs designed to increase serotonin. That book, The Prozac Pandora, a basic introduction to potential problems with this class of drugs, came out in 1991, just before the first FDA hearing on Prozac. By 1994 that had expanded into, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? The Rest of the Story, a large text on these drugs & the damaging effects of increasing serotonin, which had long been known in medical science as a “stress neuro-hormone.” The book was being ordered by the case by EMTs to hand out on calls after becoming alarmed by how often they were seeing these drugs in all the emergencies they were called out on. A pharmacy students were discoveringenough about these serotonergicdrugs after the book becoming required reading in their pharmacy class that one student even wrote a popular rap song to address it called “Get Off The Pharm!” That first edition was followed by a second edition in 2001 and a third edition on this Prozac family of serotonergic drugs in 2014 available only as an ebook on our drugawareness.org website & titled, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
Since 1992 Ann has testified as an expert witness in Prozac and other SSRI related court cases around the world. Some of the more high profile cases she has worked on would be the murder/suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife Brynn, the Columbine & Red Lake School shootings, Andrea Yates – the Texas mother who drowned her five children, the Atlanta Day Trader, Princess Di’s death, the murder/suicide of the royal family of Nepal, Anna Nicole Smith’s son Daniel’s death, etc.
Ann Blake-Tracy will amaze you with documentation as to how often these drugs have lurked silently behind the scenes of major headlines worldwide!! To get an idea of the types of reactions & how often we are seeing these in the news go to www.drugawareness.org for breaking news cases and www.SSRIstories.NET for our database of thousands of articles on patients on these drugs and the adverse results appearing as headlines. These are cases which Ann Blake Tracy, along with many of our directors, over the years have been gathering since 1990. Then our Texas director, Rosie Meysenburg, along with her husband Gene, began to post the stories into an online database in 2006. With only a handful of individuals gathering the cases it should be clear that this shocking list is only the tip of this iceberg of horrifying antidepressant-induced nightmares!
Ann Blake-Tracy is the executive director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. She has has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications as well as the new atypical antipsychotics. She has discovered that most lone wolf shooters have been medicated on some form of SSRI antidepressant. Can a possible side-effect be homicidal ideation in the client?
Richard continues the discussion with the Executive Director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness who are warning the public about the dangerous side effects of prescription medication which may include homicidal ideation. She offers alternatives and safe ways for withdrawal.
Mid July 2018 the FDA strengthened their warnings on a group of very troublesome antibiotics which have long been all too commonly prescribed to treat a variety of illnesses such as respiratory and urinary tract infections. In fact I recall warning my own father about these drugs two decades ago! The warnings are extensive and serious – especially so for those with blood sugar issues or those over 60. The warnings are related to mental health issues and severe low blood sugar and as always, are coming much too late for many. This is the very reason our International Coalition for Drug Awareness (ICFDA) was formed. Our mission statement reads:
“The International Coalition for Drug Awareness (ICFDA) is a private, non-profit group of physicians, researchers, journalists, patients, and concerned citizens.
“Our primary focus is to address the world’s most pervasive and subtle drug problem—prescription drugs. We are dedicated to educating the people of the world regarding the potentially harmful and life threatening short term and long term effects of these drugs we call “medications” along with the serious problems associated with the unethical marketing techniques of pharmaceutical companies and the off-label prescribing of these drugs by many physicians. As the cause of an estimated 200,000 plus deaths per year in America, drug reactions are now the third leading cause of death!
“The most dangerous period of time for a drug to be on the market is upon market introduction. At that point, physicians and their patients have available to them only the information on adverse reactions present in the controlled environment of a clinical trial. But they remain unaware of the potential adverse reactions of these new drugs when dispensed to the general public. We, therefore, feel there is a need to track and report patient reactions more carefully and more rapidly than what is presently being done, which should result in lower medical costs for the patients and doctors as well. And this also should begin to bridge the gap between well-meaning doctors and maltreated patients.
“By keeping prescribing physicians and their patients abreast of recent adverse reaction reports and approved uses of drugs as opposed to their off-label uses, we hope to cut the number of unnecessary deaths due to drug reactions and interactions and lessen the number of malpractice suits filed against physicians as a result of those reactions. Beyond this public education process, our intention is to serve as a watchdog group over the FDA and similar organizations around the world, encouraging them to remove drugs which demonstrate high numbers of dangerous adverse reactions and threaten the public safety.”
Did Your Mental Health Diagnosis Come From an Antibiotic?
Perhaps one of the most troubling of these warnings issued this summer by the FDA is that PSYCHIATRIC ADVERSE REACTIONS MAY OCCUR EVEN AFTER ONLY ONE DOSE!!!
The Fluoroquinolone antibiotics include Avelox (moxifloxacin), Baxdela (delafloxacin), Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Factive (gemifloxacin), Levoquin (levofloxacin), Avelox (moxifloxacin), Noroxin (norfloxacin), and Floxin (floxacin). Baytril (enrofloxacin) is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic often prescribed for pets by veterinarians & sold by the Bayer Corporation under the trade name Baytril. (One pet owner reported all three of her pets became paralyzed by this drug.)
And here are those new warnings to doctors and patients:
“With regard to fluoroquinolone use, healthcare professionals should be aware of the following:
There is a potential risk of hypoglycemia associated with use that sometimes may result in coma; elderly patients and those taking oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin may be at increased risk
Psychiatric adverse reactions may occur even after just one dose
Treatment should be discontinued if patients report any CNS side effects, including psychiatric adverse events, or blood glucose disturbances; switching to a non-fluoroquinolone antibiotic should be considered if possible
If serious side effects involving the tendons, muscles, joints, or nerves occur, treatment should be stopped and patients should be switched to a non-fluoroquinolone antibiotic
Fluoroquinolones should not be prescribed for acute bacterial sinusitis, acute bacterial exacerbations of chronic bronchitis, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections if patients have other treatment options because the risks outweigh the benefits in these patients”
In this video below is a very bright woman who gives you excellent examples on how to protect your loved ones from hospitals and drug pushing doctors who are ordering unnecessary drugs and procedures especially among the elderly. And she points out that they do not even have to disclose what they are giving your loved one and will often order those in the middle of the night when no one is around to notice!
She discusses not only these fluoroquinolone antibiotics the FDA has just now warned about, but also the statin drugs with similar very serious issues….and she will make you laugh as well – always a very healthy practice to engage in! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Special Warning for Those on Antidepressants or Atypical Antipsychotics:
Fluoroquinolones Also Increase Serotonin Leading to Serotonin Syndrome
As most of you have followed my work on antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics you know I am always checking to see which other drugs on the market may be increasing serotonin as well thus producing interactions with these drugs. And of course these fluoroquinolone antibiotics with these strong warnings of psychiatric side effects do that and they can cause the deadly Serotonin Syndrome when taken with the antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics. Here is an excellent and very extensive NIH study on Serotonin Syndrome discussing these interactions:
