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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be )

In order to get a glimpse of what was possibly going on in Adam Lanza’s head on December 14 as he ran into the Sandy Hook school shooting, and finally taking the lives of 27 people, watch this video interview of Corey and his father talking about the day he took a gun to school. As you listen to them describe what happened you will clearly see evidence that Corey experienced the REM Sleep Behavior Disorder so commonly associated with antidepressant use. As of a New York Times report in 2003 we now know that antidepressants were found in 86% of those diagnosed with this most dangerous of all sleep disorders.

On April 10, 2001, almost two years to the day from the Columbine massacre, Corey walked into his honors English class in Eastern Washington state and held 24 classmates hostage by standing there with his gun in his hand for 20 minutes. After about eight months on Paxil for Social Anxiety Disorder his doctor was switching him from the antidepressant Paxil to another antidepressant, Effexor. That morning Corey was not feeling well after having been taken over a three week period to the maximum adult dose of Effexor. So he told his parents he felt he should go back to bed and would head for classes later. That is the last Corey remembers until he woke up and found himself incarcerated in juvenile detention…learn from Corey and his father what happened that day in an interview from video clips of the Gary Null movie, THE DRUGGING OF OUR CHILDREN.

(See full version of THE DRUGGING OF OUR CHILDREN here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26e5PqrCePk including the interview with Michael Moore in which he says none of the reasons they reviewed in his movie (which includes pointing the finger at guns) Bowling for Columbine make any sense & the only thing that does make sense are these mind altering/behavior altering antidepressants)

What Corey is describing as his experience is called a REM Sleep Behavior Disorder where you act out your nightmares…even including murder. Through the latest medical research we know that 86% of those being diagnosed with this most dangerous sleep disorder are those currently taking an antidepressant!

#2 This CNN report from Dr. Sanjay Gupta on the link between antidepressants & school shootings:


WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And 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! You can find the CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: http://store.drugawareness.org/

“Very bold & informative”

“Priceless information that is giving me back to me”

“The absolute best reference for antidepressant drugs”

“Well documented & scientifically researched”

““I was stunned at the amount of research Ann Tracy has done on this subject. Few researchers go to as much trouble aggressively gathering information on the adverse reactions of Prozac, Zoloft and other SSRIs.”


“Ann, I just wanted to let you know from the bottom of my heart how grateful I am God placed you in my life. I am now down to less than 2 mg on my Cymbalta and I have never felt better. I am finally getting my life back. I can feel again and colors have never been brighter. Thanks for all that you do!!” … Amber Weber

“Used your method of weaning off of SSRI’s and applied it to Ambien. Took 6 months but had been on 15 mg for years so what was another 6 months. I have been sleeping without it for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have been able to sleep drug free for 15 years. What a relief to be able to lay down and sleep when I need or want to. Ambien may be necessary for people at times but doctors giving a months worth of it at a time with unlimited refills is a prescription for disaster. It is so damn easy to become dependent on. Thanks for your council Ann.”… Mark Hill

“I’m so thankful for AnnTracy and all her work. Also for taking the time out to talk to me and educate everyone! She has been a blessing to me during this awful time of antidepressant hell!” … Antoinette Beck

I just have to put this out there… I just finished listening to the Ann Blake-Tracy’ s talk about getting off antidepressants. I cannot even begin to explain how grateful I am for the information provided! Not only for my son but myself, I have suffered terrible migraines from muscle stiffness, teeth grinding and difficulty sleeping and guess what… I was put on Zoloft for MILD postpartum depression almost 5 years ago. I was told it was better to just stay on it while pregnant with my 3rd child and then for awhile after, just for precaution, after all I was having no side effects and it is safe. My youngest in now 2. While my gut told me it was wrong for my son to be medicated I never considered this was the cause for my own pain that seems to be worsening. I guess the drug had just become part of my routine because of being on it for so long. Now we will wean off together. The information given here is so valuable and life changing. Once again….Thank you!…Amanda Briar


Adam Lanza


ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? Although we have not yet learned what school shooter Adam Lanza was taking we do know he had a diagnosis of Aspergers  for which antidepressants are prescribed as a standard treatment by the large majority of physicians.  (If you will recall the young man who was involved in the violence with a bow & arrow that left three dead in Casper, WY the week before had also been diagnosed with Aspergers meaning it was also likely he too was taking antidepressants or recently had taken them because this can happen in withdrawal from the drugs if withdrawn too rapidly.) And I stated when this Portland mall shooting happened a week or so ago that this case clearly appeared to be antidepressant-induced as well. But when you consider the outcome in this case as opposed to the shooting at the school last Friday you can see why it is not being mentioned by those wanting to point their fingers at more gun control. There would have been far more deaths in this incident had this mall customer not have had a gun permit.


Before I began to research antidepressants I was very much anti-gun even though my great great grandfather was Mayor of Tombstone, Arizona during one of the most violent periods – the OK Coral Days. Wyatt Earp was his sheriff & Johnny Ringo was his friend and one day he had to stand between them to stop a gun battle. But my kids will tell you I refused to even allow toy guns in our home. But now AFTER learning about these drugs and interviewing so many who have had adverse reactions involving violence with any type of weapon my views have changed completely.


Why? Because everyone of them has made the statement that they wish someone would have stopped them (with a bullet if necessary) from doing what they did while having this toxic reaction that led them to such out of character violence where they could not stop themselves and yet did not want anyone hurt. Do I believe those feelings were any different for the school shooters from Eric Harris & Dylan Kleebold to Adam Lanza? NO!!! I have always said that they would have been the ones most shocked by their own actions as they reached the other side and were able to realize what they had done because of these deadly drugs.


In fact in 1992 I contacted the NRA and told them that if they did not help to educate the public about antidepressants that these drugs would be the means by which enough violence would errupt in our society for those in power to call for the taking of America’s guns. Apparently 20 years ago I was the only one to see this coming and was not taken seriously. Now here we sit right in the middle of it all…

PS If sharing this link please include my statement with it.





What patients on antidepressants and their families are not being told and desperately need to be warned of is the REM Sleep Behavior Disorder which is basically where patients act out nightmares. Considering the time of day this shooting happened that could easily have been what happened to this young man. That is a condition where you act out your nightmares. Restless leg syndrome is often the first sign of this developing in a patient. another sign is very vivid dreams. of those being diagnosed with this extremely dangerous sleep disorder 86% are taking an antidepressant making these drugs the most common denominator.


I will soon be posting an interview with another young man who was on antidepressants when he took a gun to school just over a decade ago. You will be able to clearly see that what he describes is a REM Sleep Behaviour disorder reaction steming from a switch from Paxil to Efffexor. This is exactly what comedian Phil Hartman’s wife suffered when she shot him and herself while under the influence of Zoloft.

This disorder often begins to manifest via Restless Leg Syndrome or very vivid dreams or nightmares. Watching for those reactions to antidepressants is most critical. I will have a new e-book published on this very deadly reaction in the next week or so. Corey’s father is also making himself available for interviews.


Be sure to follow me on Facebook (Ann Blake-Tracy or International Coalition for Drug Awareness) or watch for the video posting on our website at www.drugawareness.org. All the families who lost loved ones in this recent tragedy need to see this to understand the reaasons behind the nightmare they have just experienced. And all antidepressant users need to watch this video with Corey as well.

Here is a news clip to introduce you to Corey along with Mark Taylor, who was the first boy shot at Columbine High School:

1 dead, 4 injured in NE Ohio school shooting – 2-27-2012

YET ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTING!!! How can these continue? Basically non-existant before antidepressants hit the market. Now there is another one every time you turn around & in almost every case there is you will find an antidepressant involved as we will likely find in this one as well. How this can continue to go on right under the noses of everyone and so few “get it” is beyond me!!! Orwell could not have pegged our age any better than he did in his book 1984!


Chardon Fire has confirmed they were called to the high school for a shooting. The Fire dispatcher said students are possibly injured.
