Rob Schneider – Drugs Caused Robin Williams SUICIDE


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2726920/Actor-Rob-Schneider-says-convinced-Parkinson-s-medication-caused-star-s-suicide.html

As I have said from the minute the news came out on the death of Robin Williams that it was a reaction to medication that took his life, not suicide. Now we have a close friend of his saying the same thing. As I said going into rehab or being given a new diagnosis for yet another problem, such as Parkinson’s (which I still believe was medication-induced by his use of an antidepressant or his heart medication, but more likely a combination of both), always brings changes in medication. That can be changes in dose of the current medications and/or the addition of new medication to the current combination of medication – all of which we know according to FDA warnings can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis as a result. These doctors change people’s meds like they are giving them a new flavor of  jelly bean thus pushing the patients into serious adverse reactions and withdrawal reactions as well as subjecting them to synergistic effects with several producing a similar adverse reaction such as suicide!

Please listen to what Robin. Williams’ friend has to say here …

I blame the drugs Robin Williams took to fight Parkinson’s, claims friend: Actor Rob Schneider says he is convinced medication caused star’s suicide

  • The actor tweeted that side effect of medication Robin was taking is suicide
  • Pair met more than two decades ago on US TV show Saturday Night Live 
  • William’s spokeswoman declined to comment when asked about rumours
  • He took his life last Sunday as his third wife Susan slept in the next room
  • Funeral of the Mrs Doubtfire star could take place as early as this weekend

A close friend of Robin Williams has blamed the drugs the comedian was taking to combat Parkinson’s disease for his suicide.

Actor Rob Schneider tweeted: ‘Now that we can talk about it #Robin Williams was on a drug treating the symptoms of Parkinson’s. One of the side effects is suicide.’

Schneider, 50, met Williams more than two decades ago when they appeared on the US TV show, Saturday Night Live. They remained close friends and often performed together in stand-up comedy clubs.

Williams’s spokeswoman declined to comment when asked by The Mail on Sunday about rumours that the tragic comic’s family blames the medication he was on for ‘pushing him over the edge’.

A source said: ‘Robin had recently left rehab. He was on medication for anxiety and depression and had also started taking drugs to combat the early onset of Parkinson’s.

‘Many of these drugs list suicidal thoughts as a possible side effect. A lot of Robin’s friends are convinced that the cocktail of prescription pills he was on somehow contributed to his mental state deteriorating as quickly as it did.

‘Robin had always suffered from depression and addiction but the diagnosis and treatment of his Parkinson’s was new, as was the combination of drugs he was on.’

Williams, 63, was last photographed at an art show near his home in Tiburon, northern California, last Saturday night. He appeared frail and thin.

He took his life last Sunday as his third wife Susan Schneider (who is not related to Rob Schneider) slept in the next room. The pair are thought to have been sleeping in separate rooms because Williams was suffering from insomnia brought on by the drugs he was taking.

Williams’s body was found on Monday morning by his personal assistant. Results of toxicology tests are expected to take six weeks.

Experts say Parkinson’s disease can make symptoms of depression worse. America’s National Institute of Mental Health says on its website that people struggling with depression and Parkinson’s ‘suffer higher levels of anxiety and more problems with concentration’ than those suffering from only one of the ailments.

Dr Jeff Bronstein, neurologist specialising in Parkinson’s, said: ‘Obviously getting the diagnosis can make people depressed but we also know there is a much higher incidence of depression even before the disease is recognised. We think it’s one of the early symptoms.’

The funeral of the star of Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs Doubtfire could take place as early as this weekend.

A source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘The funeral will be private and small for family and very close friends only. There will be larger memorials in Los Angeles and New York at a later date.’

Williams was involved in raising money for Parkinson’s research through his friend Michael J. Fox’s foundation before he was diagnosed with the disease.

Back To The Future star Fox tweeted: ‘Stunned to learn Robin had PD. A true friend. I wish him peace.’

Former Utah man accused of killing his wife, a Filipina model

 

Aiko Jim 3

Aiko and James Edward Moore II

After beating his wife to death Jim Moore then called his first wife to apologize for everything he had ever done, alluded to committing suicide, then hung up and attempted to kill himself. This has left his visiting five year old son stranded at an orphanage in the Philippines.

His comment on this picture in May: “Aiko, you are absolutely gorgeous, radiant and blooming, and this photo only begins to capture that essence. How did I get so lucky?”

Another entry on January 1 reads: “HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Greatest Holiday Season EVER!! What more could a father ask for? A loving wife, endearing children, and all together for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year. This is a first for me, and I must say, I wouldn’t trade it up for the world!! I love u all!”

Someone stated in the comments on the following news article about the murder/suicide attempt that this is a nightmare. My response follows:

“A nightmare is right! Now to learn if it was literally a nightmare as it was the case in the murder of comedian Phil Hartman where his wife acted out her nightmare in a REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. Someone needs to ask if Jim was taking an antidepressant (often given after a divorce) because these drugs produce REM Sleep Behavior Disorder known to produce both murder and suicide. In fact 86% of those diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder are taking antidepressants. Did he stop taking it when he remarried and then start again when the typhoon hit? According to FDA warnings, these abrupt changes in dose can cause suicide, hostility and/or psychosis. There were indications of all three of those in this case.

“Here is your clue that this was not just a normal argument but that something went terribly wrong: “At 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, Seddon said she got an incoherent phone call from her ex-husband, James Edward Moore II.

“He basically told me that he’s very sorry for everything that’s happened, that he’s done, to please forgive him,” Seddon said.

“Seddon said Moore threatened suicide, then hung up.” See full articles below…

Remember the case of the elderly man, David Benson, in Southern Utah, who last year on Halloween morning hit his wife in the kitchen in the back of the head with a hammer, then beat her to death with the hammer by hitting her in the face while under the influence of multiple prescription meds. This was a couple so much in love that friends and neighbors said seeing them together was like watching two 16 year olds in love.

As I said in the blog on the case I posted last night of the young man in SLC who stabbed his grandmother 111 times a drug company expert was compelled to testify of his own research on serotonin in a mass murder/suicide case in WY in 2001 (Tobin vs Glaxo). His work, as so many other studies on serotonin since 1950 determined as well, when you impair the body’s ability to metabolize serotonin (serotonin reuptake inhibition – considered the therapeutic aspect of antidepressants) you produce impulsive murder and suicide. The jury determined after hearing all the evidence (something the public has never heard) that the two tablets of antidepressants the man had taken was the main cause of this murder/suicide.

ANTIDEPRESSANT: HOLLYWOOD PRODUCER TONY SCOTT COMMITTS SUICIDE

s-TONY-SCOTT-CANCER-large[1]

ANTIDEPRESSANTS???? Although the latest news as in this article discusses the diagnosis of an inoperable brain tumor I want you to be aware that does not mean an antidepressant was not involved. Doctors FAR TOO OFTEN hand out antidepressants right along with a diagnosis like that. These are given after accidents, surgeries, trauma of any kind. They are given to stop smoking, urinary incontinence, etc., etc., etc. so when anything like this happens the question about medications MUST be asked! That is what I want understood about this suicide. It should not just be dismissed due to this diagnosis.

So if this was a recent diagnosis for cancer there may have also been a recent prescription which clouded his judgement & could easily have triggered suicidal ideation, thus leading to this type of dramatic & sure manner of suicide. So, antidepressants MAY have been involved anyway. Let’s wait & see what we learn. Robbing someone of any time they may have been allotted on earth is NOT okay especially if it was not their real intention to leave in such a way but was medication-induced!

EARLIER: A source has revealed to ABC news that Tony Scott, director of “Top Gun” and “Crimson Tide,” was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer.

Scott took his own life on Sunday by jumping off a bridge in Los Angeles, California. At approximately 12:35 p.m., several bystanders alerted the authorities that someone had jumped from Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island in Los Angeles Harbor.

“I can confirm that Tony Scott has passed away. The family asks that their privacy is respected at this time,” Simon Halls, the director’s spokesperson, said in a statement.

Investigators found contact information in Scott’s Toyota Prius and a suicide note in his office.

The English-born director directed dozens of blockbuster successes — from “Beverly Hills Cop II” to “True Romance” — and has left an indelible impression on the film world.

CONFIRMED: Antidepressant Remeron found in toxicology of Tony Scott

Scott had therapeutic levels of the anti-depressant Remeron and the sleep aid Lunesta in his system when he died, the report has revealed.

Xanax Facts and Whitney Houston

 Whitney-Houston-Drugs
I have to agree with Dr. Peter Breggin on this article & would encourage you to read it & educate yourself about this drug.

But what I would add that was not addressed here is how often Xanax is prescribed in antidepressant withdrawal thereby causing Xanax to take responsibility for what the antidepressant withdrawal actually caused or exacerbated the effects. If that is a possibility in Whitney Houston’s case we do not know because that information has not been shared & is rarely addressed or considered.

Another important issue not addressed here is that Ambien is in this same group of drugs & most are aware of the very serious problems with this Benzo.

Also when Xanax was introduced to the market ~ supposedly to replace its extremely addictive sister drug, Valium ~ it is amazing to see it made it to approval when you consider that 1/3 of those in the clinical trials for Xanax could not withdraw from this drug due to its extremely addictive properties!!!

www.huffingtonpost.com

Reports that Xanax and other benzos are not usually lethal when taken alone are vastly misleading. Xanax is rarely taken alone. Why? Because as much or more than any other prescribed drug, Xanax causes medication spellbinding.

SARAFEM (PROZAC) & ROBITUSSIN: Brittany Murphy Dies Suddenly: CA

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy
(
www.drugawareness.org): Brittany
Murphy died from the use of multiple serotonergic medications – meds that
increase serotonin. She may have had pneumonia, but pneumonia does not kill that
quickly. There were clearly other contributing factors when death is so sudden
and without much warning.

When Heidi Connelly published her information on Fen-Phen and Redux causing
heart valve problems (something Brittany already suffered from) she found that
it was the elevated levels of serotonin produced by the Fen-Phen and Redux that
caused a gummy gooey glossy substance to build up on the heart valves and keep
them from shutting properly. So if Brittany‘s heart valve already did not shut
properly and you raise her serotonin levels with two serotonergic drugs – Prozac(Sarafem) and Robitussin you build the level of gummy gooey glossy substance on
that heart valve and you are in trouble.

But beyond that the increase in serotonin constricts muscle tissue
restricting air into the lungs, blood flow throughout the body, etc. – all the
major organs are constricted by elevated serotonin. When the serotonin level
gets too high (as it does when you mix two meds that increase it) you produce
death via multiple organ failure. This is what killed Daniel, Anna Nicole
Smith’s young son. It is called Serotonin Syndrome.
So, in Brittany‘s case I firmly believe that the elevated serotonin
produced by these drugs put the nail in her coffin.
Paragraph four reads:  “Investigators found prescription
medication for depression, seizures, anxiety and pain. Monjack told Lauer his
late wife used Vicoprofen and Sarafem during her menstrual
cycle. ‘”Most of the medications are mine. I suffer from seizures,’
Monjack declared. The screenwriter began to stutter and added,  ‘I suffer
from, you know, heart… my heart stopped on December 3rd when we landed from
Puerto Rico’.”
SSRI Stories note:  Sarafem is, molecule for
molecule, the same exact drug as Prozac.  It goes by a different name
because it is registered with the FDA for use in PMS.

Brittany
Murphy‘s Family Continues to Deny Drug Rumors

Posted on January 21, 2010Brittany Murphy‘s
husband and mother sat down with Matt Lauer on the “Today” show to
discuss the actress’ sudden death.

Murphy

died Dec. 20, and the cause of death is still unknown; toxicology
results
are expected in a few weeks.

“Let’s set the record straight
once and for all — Brittany was not taking any medication for her mood, for
anorexia,” Murphy‘s husband Simon Monjack said. “It’s utterly ridiculous
that these rumors have perpetuated.”

Investigators found prescription
medication for depression, seizures, anxiety and pain. Monjack told Lauer his
late wife used Vicoprofen and Sarafem during her menstrual cycle. “Most of the
medications are mine. I suffer from seizures,” Monjack declared. The
screenwriter began to stutter and added, “I suffer from, you know, heart… my
heart stopped on December 3rd when we landed from Puerto Rico.”

Brittany‘s life in photos

Murphy‘s mother Sharon began to
shake her head when Lauer asked about Brittany‘s rumored cocaine use. “It’s just
so horrific. She was diagnosed with a heart murmur when she was a young teenager
and she was terrified of anything happening to her. She never did any drugs,
ever.” Sharon replied.

The two also denied Brittany had any type of
eating disorder. “You just need to go to her favorite restaurant, Chateau
Marmont, and speak to any waiter, who would tell you that she would happily
order four plates of food and eat them all,” Monjack stated.

Monjack
also claims Murphy‘s role in “Happy Feet 2” was pulled and it broke her heart.
He explained, “Hollywood is a village and once you upset the villagers they talk
and they gossip and they rumor. They have blood on their hands, and I hope they
wash them with very hot water because of the way they treated Brittany Murphy

while she was alive.”

The grieving husband and mother have established The Brittany Murphy
Foundation
in her memory.

What Killed Anna Nicole Smith’s Son Daniel?

anna_nicole_smith2annanicolebabyandsonDan-Anna Nicole smith

 

ANNA NICOLE SMITH, HER SON DANIEL, & NEW BABY

First of all the hypothesis behind antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics is backwards. Serotonin is not low in depression, anxiety, etc. What is low in those conditions is the ability to break down or metabolize serotonin with the end result being elevated serotonin levels.

What “Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor” (SSRI or SNRI) means is that these antidepressants inhibit the reuptake or metabolism of serotonin, thus causing the serotonin to rise even higher, and thereby compounding the initial problem. Then when serotonin levels become too high the end result is Serotonin Syndrome – a condition which can cause death by multiple organ failure. It can be caused by only one drug that increases serotonin, but Daniel was on four medications that increase serotonin.

After Dr. Cyril Wecht, the famous forensic pathologist who is most often called in on the celebrity cases, and I were interviewed by the Associated Press on this case we had some long talks about the serious problem nationwide of so many having their serotonin levels increased and doctors prescribing so many of these serotonergic medications in combination with little to no knowledge of what negative impact and deadly consequences that can pose for so many. We both concluded that Serotonin Syndrome was indeed the cause of the death of Anna Nicole Smith’s 20 year old son, Daniel.

Report: Overdose of prescription drugs may have killed Michael Jackson

Thu, Jun. 25, 2009

Life & Style reports that Michael Jackson
was taking a cocktail of up to seven prescription drugs in the months
before his death.

The star had been taking prescription painkillers including
anti-anxiety drugs Xanax, Zoloft (SSRI Antidepressant) and painkiller Demerol in recent
months, sources close to Jackson told Life & Style. The insider
close to the star said he took a suspected overdose of drugs on
Thursday morning, which caused respiratory and cardiac arrest.

And a Jackson family lawyer told CNN he “feared” the drugs
could kill the pop star. CNN’s interview with the source follows the
jump.

Jackson
family lawyer Brian Oxman confirmed Jackson may have had trouble with
prescription drugs as he prepared for his London show.

“This was something which I feared and something which I warned about,”
Oxman said on CNN. “I can tell you for sure that this is something I
warned about. Where there is smoke there is fire.”

Mr Oxman compared Michael to Anna Nicole Smith, alleging that Michael had ‘enablers’ just like her.

CNN details Jackson’s long history of medical problems here.
At
a news conference, brother Jermaine Jackson said doctors and family
tried “for an hour” to resuscitate the performer. TMZ’s video of the
conference is here.

Meanwhile, Hollyscoop reports that doctors visited Jackson “daily.” THe site’s latest update:

While news of Michael Jackson’s death came as a shock to many, inside
sources tell Hollyscoop exclusively that the King of Pop “had doctors
visiting him daily.”

Michael went into cardiac arrest Thursday afternoon and was rushed to
UCLA Medical Center around 1pm. His personal physician was with him at
the time and accompanied him to the hospital.

At approximately 1:14pm when he arrived at the hospital, doctors and
emergency personnel performed CPR and tried to resuscitate him, but
were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at 2:26pm.

The cause of his death is still unknown, but an autopsy is scheduled
for this coming Friday afternoon. Michael was transferred from UCLA
Medical Center to the coroner’s office via a Los Angeles Sheriff’s
helicopter shortly after 6pm.

Jackson family spokesman Brian Oxman reacts to the news of

“If you think the case with Anna Nicole Smith was
an abuse, it’s nothing in comparison to what we have seen taking place
in Michael Jackson’s life.”

Michael Jackson Loses Life to Serotonergic Medications Just as Elvis Did

Thursday June 25, 2009 Michael Jackson lost his life due to the organ stopping effect of Serotonin Syndrome thanks to a drug that should have been removed from the market decades ago – Demerol. A serotonergic medication similar in action to antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, and other pain killers.

Serotonin constricts smooth muscle tissue. The major organs of the body are composed of smooth muscle tissue. When serotonin levels increase too high the major organs constrict and shut down. Elevated serotonin, which all of these medications produce, causes death via multiple organ failure. This is the same way Daniel Smith, Anna Nicole Smith’s young son lost his life to the combination of four serotonergic medications.
