SSRI TRAMADOL & KLONOPIN: Driver With Double the Legal Limit Kills Two Girls

Joshua Malmgren

Joshua Malmgren, 33

There are several SSRI and SNRI antidepressants given for different indications that stay under the radar because few know they are antidepressants. One of those is Tramadol, generally given as a pain killer. This is what Brynn Hartman, comedian Phil Hartman’s wife was on along with Zoloft, when she shot Phil and herself. When two or more serotonergic meds are given together you can greatly increase the serious interactions due to the synergistic effects. So just because you know the names of the popular antidepressants on the market, do not feel so safe not being more aware of the others that few are aware of. Educate yourselves!

We have long discussed the cravings for alcohol produced by antidepressant meds. It is such a strong craving that it causes even those who have never touched alcohol before to crave alcohol. So when you see cases like this with two to three times the legal limit of alcohol ALWAYS suspect that an antidepressant may be behind the scenes and start asking questions.

In this case the cravings for alcohol (something we know Klonopin causes as well) led to more serious interactions between medications resulting in the behavior that took the lives to two young girls, cousins Nioami Lazicki, 15, Ashley Dauber, 13. Tragically there was another girl, Nioami’s younger sister, with them who saw the car at the last minute and jumped to safety. Not sure you can call it “safety” she jumped to though when you know they will more than likely give her an antidepressant to “cope” with the deaths of her sister and cousin. And that could lead to her death as well or the destruction of her life via the horrible side effects.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS – How We Are All Adversely Affected

me in front of hearse

AUGUST 22, MY MOTHER’S BURIAL

I am going to share a couple of experiences in my life today to help you to see how incredibly widespread the nightmare of these antidepressants really is.

This is a picture of me walking past the hearse today to dedicate my mother’s grave as her final resting place. The look on my face is not from anything to do with burying my mother, instead it is shock from seeing the grave next to the hearse just a few graves away from my parent’s graves.

Let me explain why…

The name on the grave with a picture on the headstone was William Farar and this was the first time I had ever seen a picture of Bill. Several of his family are friends of mine here on Facebook because Bill Farar was one of the first of many SSRI-induced suicides in my hometown. I worked with his family to help them to understand that what had taken his life was NOT suicide, but instead a reaction to his antidepressant.

I had also just spoken at my mother’s funeral where each of us children shared the most important things about our mother. Other than her incredible example of caring for all people was that while on a college tour of Mexico she had recruited Dr. Larry Porter, originally from northern Mexico, to help translate for her as they went to visit my infant son who was waiting with a family there for us to finish his adoption. Dr. Porter became convinced that Mexico would never allow my son to leave the country so he began to look at other options unbeknownst to me.

A month or two later he contracted pneumonia and was hospitalized when a 15 year old girl walked into the hospital in labor and said she wanted to give her child up for adoption.. Dr. Porter’s daughter was a nurse there and immediately ran to tell her father about the baby. Dr. Porter got out of his hospital bed and ran to the front of the hospital to say he knew a couple who desperately wanted a baby and would adopt the child.

Because my mother did not want me to go through the pain and anguish once again of getting my hopes up for a baby and then not being able to complete the adoption, she brought the baby home and kept her for the three day waiting period Arizona has for a legal release for adoption. She then called me to have me guess what she had waiting for me in my little brother’s room! I flew down to bring my new baby daughter home and three weeks later Senator Jake Garn was able to assist us with finalization of my son’s adoption. So within three weeks I had two babies a year and a half apart! Yikes!

That was in 1980. Fast forward another 13 years and Dr. Larry Porter had moved to Provo, Utah where he had established his practice. One day I got a call from one of his patients wanting help. He said he thought he was having serious adverse reactions to Prozac because as a guard at the prison he was not only having thoughts, but actually making plans to kill everyone on death row. He found these thoughts and plans alarming enough to ask for help because he thought those thoughts were coming from his Prozac. So I helped him as he weaned of Prozac and the thoughts and plans disappeared along with his Prozac.

But what had made him realize it was Prozac causing this was his own doctor, who had told him he too was on Prozac. Yet his doctor had just shot his wife and and himself in a murder/suicide. That doctor was Dr. Larry Porter who had helped me to adopt my daughter! This was COMPLETELY out of character for Dr. Porter! His patient knew it, I knew it, and Dr. Porter’s family knew it. They believed someone must have come into the home and murdered both of them. But the police investigation concluded that it was a murder/suicide. I was then able to work with Dr. Porter’s son to help the family understand how this could have happened.

So I share this with you to let you know that even in laying my mother to rest I am surrounded by SSRI nightmares as all of us are if we but look. I am aware of this only because I see these nightmares where others remain blind to them. I encourage you all to look around you and become aware of what is happening in your own circle of family, friends and neighbors.

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Teacher Stabbed to Death in UK

 

Catholic school stabbing

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Teacher Stabbed to Death

in Front of Class in Catholic School in the UK

From the article below we learn a few things about the young man who stabbed his teacher to death:

“The alleged killer comes from a respectable middle-class family. His mother works as a human resources manager for a local firm and his father is a council executive.

“A 16-year-old classmate described the teenager as having few friends, saying he had been bullied previously and taken anti-depressants.

“The boy was an ‘A grade pupil’ but he disliked Spanish and could not stand  the teacher.”

Diagnosed With Schizophrenia at 17, Las Vegas Man Kills Mother & Sister

Darius Sorrells

Darrius Sorrells (30)

Diagnosed schizophrenic at 17, Darris Sorrells’ sister awoke a week earlier to him standing over her with a crow bar, a week later she was dead in a bloody confrontation that somewhere along the line of events involved knives and a bloody chain saw and body parts in a fridge.

[Keep in mind that schizophrenia is a condition of elevated serotonin and which meds increase serotonin? Antidepressants. Osama Bin Laden’s son has been diagnosed schizophrenic due to his use of antidepressants. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/3047072/Omar-bin-Ladens-wife-on-why-they-split-up.html See just how many clues pointing to antidepressant use you have here from this interview with the friends.]

“Neighbors and family friends also indicated mental health issues involving Darius Sorrells.

“In the report, police said a family friend was contacted a week before by Natasha Sorrells who said she woke up to her brother holding a crow bar over her. The call prompted the first welfare check which was made on March 28 after the friend’s calls to Natasha Sorrells went unanswered.

“In investigating Darius Sorrells for the deaths, police found a hardware store receipt dated March 28 for a chainsaw inside the SUV involved in the chase.

“In an interview, Darius Sorrells claimed memory loss of every event before his arrest on March 29. He also refused to speak any further with investigators.

“The report said he showed no emotion when he was told he was being booked for the deaths of his mother and sister”.

DeJaVu: Active Shooter at Fort Hood

fort hood

Source: Active shooter at Fort Hood

Thanks to our webmaster Todd Bentley for bringing this case to us….

Considering how many at Fort Hood were medicated after the last mass shooting there which was done by an Army psychiatrist I would wonder if it might be someone who was medicated to cope with that shooting who is going off the deep end now. But considering how quick the military is to medicate with antidepressants for almost any reason, it could be military personnel. If anyone hears anything would you please share?

Remember that elevated serotonin (exactly what antidepressants are designed to do) has long been known to be associated with violent crimes, be it murder, suicide, rapes, arson, etc. http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda

See the breaking news below….

Here is the press release stating clearly he was on antidepressants – SSRIs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCvvg2M8ZH8&feature=youtu.be

When will they learn that you CANNOT prescribe so many drugs together?! Most especially they should not be giving someone two or more drugs that produce the deadly sleepwalk disorder of REM Sleep Behavior Disorder such as Ambien and an antidepressant.

Lopez was undergoing a variety of treatment for psychiatric issues, ranging from depression to anxiety to sleep disturbances. He said Lopez was taking “a number of drugs,” including Ambien, for these conditions, and that he had seen a psychiatrist just last month. McHugh said there were no indications during that examination that Lopez showed any “sign of likely violence.”

Milley said Wednesday that Lopez had been undergoing an assessment to determine whether he had post-traumatic stress disorder.

More info on shooter:

The initial report is below. The following is the latest report indicating he was being treated for “depression and anxiety” with a traumatic brain injury on top of that.

“The gunman had served four months in Iraq in 2011 and was currently under diagnosis for post traumatic stress disorder, but had not been officially diagnosed with PTSD, Milley said. He added the shooter was undergoing behavioral health care for depression and anxiety, had a self-reported traumatic brain injury and was not physically injured in combat.”

http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Active-Shooter-Reported-at-Fort-Hood-253636461.html
Additional info on shooter Ivan Lopez: 
“Milley added that the suspect had not been stationed at Fort Hood long, arriving on post less than two months ago. “He recently arrived at Fort Hood in February from another installation and we’re checking with the other instillation to determine the background of the soldier,” Milley told reporters.

“Ivan Lopez served one tour, four months, in Iraq back in 2011.  When he returned, he diagnosed himself with a traumatic brain injury.  At the time of the shooting, he was being treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, but had not officially been diagnosed.  Milley said the suspect was undergoing the diagnosis process for PTSD and, in the meantime, was receiving specific treatment for behavior, health and psychiatric issues.”

ANTIDEPRESSANTS – Woman Cuts off Man’s Penis and Kills Him With Hammer

sissors

Hong Kong – Woman (41) Beats Man (32) to Death With

Hammer After Drugging Him, Cutting Off His Penis & Flushing It

The article ran March 12, 2014 and it is now one week later with not one of you reporting it to me when there were almost 20,000 shares of the article. You are really slipping! This makes me wonder what I am doing wrong in teaching you how to spot these antidepressant-induced crimes. This is NOT just my responsibility. I really do need your help in documenting these. All of us are suffering as a society because of the widespread use of these drugs. If we cannot show the world the connection to the drugs in order to stop this drug-induced insanity, I do not want to see what is coming for all of us as an end result!

Excerpts from the London Daily Mail article below give us the story of what happend…

“… Yeung Ki attacked Zhou Hui, her now-married former longtime lover, and flushed his penis down the toilet after feeding him with drug-laced soup, the South China Morning Post reported

“… in 2007, she lost contact with him. Already pregnant, she traced him on the mainland and discovered he was married.
Zhou asked her to abort the child, but she refused. They ceased contact until 2012, when Zhou called her saying he missed her and visited her several times.

Attack and Rape By Zhou

Yeung told police in an interview shown in the court that on the last visit, Zhou had beaten her and her four-year-old daughter because she refused to give him $28,000 to buy a car.
Zhou had also told Yeung he had nude pictures of her which he would post on the internet unless she gave him the money. He then stripped her and had forcible sex with her on the bed.
Zhou ‘beat her, pushed her to the floor, and slapped their daughter’.
During the fight, the girl was sent out to the apartment balcony, while Zhou then ‘forcibly had sex with her’, the High Court heard.

Drugged Soup, Severed and Flushed Penis, and

Subsequent Beating to Death With Uncountable Hammer Blows

“… Afterwards, Yeung fed him with the drug-laced soup, took a pair of scissors and cut off his penis which she flushed down the toilet.
When Zhou was awakened by the pain, he started beating her and as they fought, she saw a hammer and grabbed it to bash him in the face.

… Yeung beat him to death with an ‘almost uncountable’ number of blows from a hammer to his face and the back of his head, prosecutor Nicholas Adams said.
After the killing, Yeung wrapped the body in a bed sheet and covered it with a mattress.
The following day, Yeung took her daughter to a Social Welfare Department centre where she wept and confessed she had severed Zhou’s penis and killed him.

Yeung Ki Suffered From Depression

‘I cut it,’ Yeung told a social worker. ‘I think it was cruel. I did not mean it.’
Yeung says she is not guilty of murder and that she was provoked and suffered from depression.

Now let me point out the main thing, beyond the statement by her that she was suffering from depression that caused this, that would indicate to me she was currently taking an antidepressant when this occurred. This is the “almost uncountable number of hammer blows.

Most humans would find themselves incapable of this, but especially a woman. On an antidepressant this is not the case. I had a woman that it took three big police officers to take her down on Paxil and she nearly ended up taking them down. In another case we had a woman on Paxil who stabbed her husband 200 times. It has to do with the super human strength so many patients report – the steroid effect of these drugs.

About a decade and a half ago I took a neighbor with me to go look at a vehicle for sale across town in Salt Lake City, Utah. As we walked in the door the woman saw my button that said “Just Say No to Prozac” and she immediately began telling us why Prozac was the worst drug on the planet. She said she had no doubt that the first case of cutting off a penis that had recently been reported with Lorena and John Wayne Bobbit involved the use of Prozac. (Subsequent reports would certainly indicate both were on antidepressants after the incident if not before!) Her reason for that is she wanted to do the same. Instead she took a chain saw to every tree on their property. Then she stripped nude and got on her roof to dance with butcher knives. At that point neighbors called 911 and the fire department responded by calling her husband to coax her down off the roof.

Elevated Serotonin = Violent Crime

Remember that elevated levels of serotonin have long been associated with violent crime. http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda

Drugawareness.org YouTube Channel – Teens on SSRIs

Jamie Tierney

It seems few of you are aware that the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has its own YouTube Channel with lots of information there. Once you subscribe to the Drugawareness Channel you will automatically be notified as we send out new videos – something we are gearing up to do a lot of in the near future as we comb through all of my older videos and recordings.

Find one video below as an example of some of the videos you will find there.

Sign up for the YouTube Drugawareness.org Channel here:

http://www.youtube.com/user/icfda?annotation_id=channel%3A5188b312-0-2135-95bf-47d7b87382e&feature=iv&src_vid=XH7m-YNApU4

And here is a direct link to the videos on our YouTube channel: http://www.drugawareness.org/videos/

The following example is a news piece that covers the experience of two teens, Christopher Pitman & Jamie Tierney. At age 12 Chris was prescribed Paxil and then Zoloft and after only a few months killed the two people he loved the most, his grandparents, and then proceeded to burn the house down with their bodies still inside. Jamie at 15 became suicidal and full of rage after being given Effexor for migraine headaches.

You can see that news piece here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlLiAfiueo4&list=UUo-6uMPDOtwaPe1ec3Rhr3A

In posting the new information over the next few months I would hope it would give you a good picture of how much information has been out there for how long and what all has been accomplished at this point. If you are wondering why these antidepressants are still on the market from what you are seeing and learning currently, just wait until you see all that has already transpired and the information that has been out on the drugs for years now.

I have long said that those beginning to see this situation with these drugs need desperately to learn the history behind what has already transpired. We will also be including some very long, in depth, radio interviews on these drugs that will teach you things you have not yet heard anywhere else even though they are over a decade old. I encourage you to listen and learn and share with others so that they can see this antidepressant fiasco for what it really is.

Drug the Victims! – The PTSD Crisis That’s Being Ignored: Americans Wounded in Their Own Neighborhoods

PTSD in city

The PTSD Crisis That’s Being Ignored:

Americans Wounded in Their Own Neighborhoods

Drug the Victims! Pharma has come up with yet another market created by their own meds! – The PTSD Crisis That’s Being Ignored: Americans Wounded in Their Own Neighborhoods

The following comment is what I responded to: Vonrock: “OK Barack here’s your chance at stemming gun violence. Help real people.”

And my response pretty much covers where they are headed with this drugging of the victims who could easily be victims of those on these same medications as they are behind the majority of shootings: “You do not stem gun violence by treating PTSD because PTSD is NOT what makes these people violent. What makes them violent are the drugs they prescribe for PTSD that already have listed (admitted – is that a confession?!) side effects of both “homicidal and suicidal ideation” and those drugs are antidepressants. Now keep in mind that “ideation” means obsessive and compulsive thoughts and actions of both homicide and suicide.

“It has LONG been known that increasing levels of serotonin produces violence out of the blue. And impairing the metabolism of serotonin (called serotonin reuptake inhibition) in order to increase the levels of serotonin can produce impulsive murder and suicide. Yes I can give you those references because I have been testifying as an expert in criminal cases involving antidepressants since 1992. The whole world needs to hear what comes out in courtrooms about these drugs! It is a public safety issue. But drug companies have made so much money of these drugs that they have bought off everyone when it comes to these meds.

“Just in the 90’s the makers of Prozac, Eli Lilly, alone paid out at least a Billion dollars to pay off lawsuits and place gag orders on those settling so that they could continue to peddle their wares.

“Ever wonder how much Pharma stock Obama owns? What about judges? What about lawmakers? What about the doctors prescribing the drugs? And who would the media get to advertise without these drugs?

“(Would be more than happy to share supporting references for any and all of those statement if anyone wants them.)”

vonrock: “Thank you! Knowledge is most important here.”

Antidepressants CAUSE PTSD and should never be given as a treatment for that because they make the condition far worse. PTSD is an anxiety disorder and Dr. Murray Essler from Australia found in a study in 2000 that those suffering various anxiety disorders have serotonin levels EIGHT times higher than normal. He immediately began asking why on earth doctors are then giving antidepressants, which increase serotonin even further, as a treatment for anxiety disorders like PTSD. There are many other ways to treat PTSD and antidepressants are not it!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. These reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

Do Not Miss This Movie – Sleepwalk With Me – REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

Sleepwalk With Me

Mike Birbiglia

This is a movie about the REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) which I have one DVD out on the subject already and am finishing up an e-book on the subject currently… My comment on the movie?

“This is a movie that should be seen by absolutely everyone!!! In 2010 there were 250 Million prescriptions written for antidepressants in America yet 86% of those being diagnosed with the potentially deadly sleep disorder featured in this movie were found to be on an antidepressant … no one should miss this movie! Mike Birbiglia has done an excellent job of presenting this now all too common sleep disorder, very funny, yet making it clear to the audience just how serious this condition can be and disruptive to normal life.”

Although this disorder has gotten much press lately as being associated with the sleeping pill Ambien, the drugs in that class are found to be in 3% of the diagnosis of RBD while a staggering 86% of those diagnosed with RBD are taking an antidepressant! Even worse is to know that RBD used to be a rare disorder and mainly found in drug withdrawal from psychoactive illegal drugs. But with 86% currently being on an antidepressant when diagnosed with this disorder in which patients have no paralysis during sleep and thus can act out whatever they are dreaming or having a nightmare about we need to be very concerned about the number of cases found in withdrawal from antidepressants.

What is the connection to antidepressants?

One theory is that it is the elevated serotonin levels that stimulate the brain stem and remove paralysis during periods of sleep.

It has been my experience in working with patients having reactions to antidepressants that the side effect of vivid or abnormal dreams or nightmares are the first sign of the manifestation of RBD.

Egbert movie review: “The hero of Mike Birbiglia’s “Sleepwalk With Me” is a stand-up comic who suffers from REM behavior disorder. One night in a motel in Walla Walla, he leaps through a second-floor window while acting out a nightmare he was having and narrowly escapes death… but has to have glass splinters removed from his legs. His doctor tells him to start using a sleeping bag to sleep in — and wear mittens so he can’t get out of the bag to act out his dreams or nightmares.

MEDICATION: Finally The Answers in 4 Year Old Ethan Stacy’s Murder

Nathan Sloop

Nathan Sloop

Nathan Sloop, step-father to Ethan Stacy, 4, (below) pleaded guilty but mentally ill Tuesday to aggravated murder in the boy’s death. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors will not seek the death penalty against him.

Little Ethan

Ethan Stacy, 4

Ethan Stacy, 4, died in May of 2010, just days after he arrived in Utah to visit his mother for the summer. Within only a few days, prosecutors believe the boy was severely abused, scalded, beaten, over medicated and was not given the medical care that he needed. When found his body had been disfigured with a hammer and the shallow grave it was in had been sprinkled with dog food. The boy had been burned over 17 percent of his body.

Almost four years later the answer I have suspected since Ethan’s death in May of 2008 has come out in court today. His step-father was on a number of prescribed medications for “mental illness” and even was prescribed as much as 4000 pain pills in a nine month period. Today he pleaded guilty, but mentally ill. As I have said before the answers may not come quickly, but if you hang on eventually they surface.

Nathan Sloop was once an All-American academic Lacrosse player whose mental illness “sent him off the tracks” according to his attorney. I would propose that it was not mental illness that sent him off the tracks, but the drugs he was given that produced the mental illness and additionally sent him off the tracks. His attorney went on to say , “The capacity of the defendant to appreciate the wrongfulness of his conduct was impaired as a result of a medical condition,” and added that he felt his client’s illness was “mistreated.” And whenever you hear that mentioned that is translated as “my client was not suffering depression, but instead was undiagnosed Bipolar and antidepressants should not have been given to someone who has tendencies for Bipolar.” The attorneys use that as a defense because that is what the doctors, who caused this nightmare for this family in the first place, have used to explain why these things are the fault of the patient, and certainly NOT the wonderful medications they have prescribed for the patient!

Ethan’s mother Stephanie Sloop is also charged with the murder and will be in court next week. Nathan and Stephanie Sloop got married on May 6, but left Ethan at home alone because they didn’t want anyone to notice his bruises and swelling. Ethan died two days later.

Nathan Sloop faced additional charges in an unrelated case in December after he attacked a deputy at the Davis County Jail. In the Nov. 21 incident, Sloop punched the officer while trying to gouge his eyes out and biting his thumb.

Please note that we have long seen cases of the gouging out of eyes and more especially biting associated with the use of antidepressants. See our database of cases for similar antidepressant cases at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org
