ANTIDEPRESSANTS: SUICIDE HITS A 25 YEAR ALL TIME HIGH

SUICIDE DEATHS HIT A 25 YEAR ALL TIME HIGH

Now I don’t know why on earth the suicide rate would be at an all time high over the past 25 years when some of the most popular prescription drugs on the market have a Black Box Warning for suicide, do you?! Give me a break!!!!

I and our group, the International Coalition for Drug Awareness, have been tracking the cases for 25 years and building a database of the suicides (www.ssristories.NET) and it is so common to have an antidepressant behind these completely out of character suicides that coroners have been noticing it for two decades…LONG before the FDA Black Box Warning was put into place to the point of even asking when they walk into an autopsy, “So have you found the antidepressant yet?”! So NOW the CDC is finally letting us know that suicide is at a 25 year high? Just as with the FDA their warnings seem to always come way too late!

But the FDA issued the Black Box Warning for suicide with antidepressants in 2005 so why is it that so few become aware of the warning for suicide in association with antidepressant use until after their loved one has taken their own life and perhaps someone else’s life as well? It is because they are not being given that warning by their doctors as mandated by law! Perhaps someone might want to look at that problem along with the fact the warning was only given for those 25 and under when the drugs clearly don’t care what age you happen to be when they produce the toxic reaction linked to overwhelming compulsions to kill yourself.

So why this revelation from the CDC now? Is it just a push for even more of those who are feeling down and out to take these drugs with the misnomer “antidepressant” attached to them even though these drugs have listed side effects of depression, anxiety, psychosis and suicide? Can someone please explain to me why that would “help” anyone get over depression?!

Just how much longer do we as a society tolerate having prescription drugs on the market with warnings they could produce both suicide and homicide as a side effect?! The Germans missed seeing the Holocaust happening right under their noses no different than we are missing this current medication-induced holocaust happening right under our noses! Wake up America!

Erica DePalo

Erica DePalo, NJ Teacher of the Year acquitted

While earlier this year Erica DePalo, NJ Teacher of the Year was acquitted for the same thing because her attorney at least knew enough to use the antidepressant defense in her case. She was already diagnosed Bipolar and had been given an antidepressant which he noted was a mistake pushing her into a manic reaction resulting in her skewed judgment.

“During Monday’s hearing there were revelations that DePalo suffered from depression and anxiety since she was in college and had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder several years ago. According to her defense attorney, Anthony Alfano, after her arrest DePalo discovered she was mistakenly prescribed with anti-depressants instead of mood stabilizers. He added, “the drugs contributed to her errors in judgment.”

I have tracked these cases since the mid 90’s since they were basically unheard of before that time. In my investigation of cases during that time I can tell you that to find a female teacher who has sexually abused a male student who is not taking an antidepressant is next to impossible!! In all that time I have found one that reportedly did not involve antidepressant use, but was not able to ask enough questions in that case to see if it happened to be an antidepressant withdrawal mania that had caused that one.

As I discuss in my book on SSRI antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare, serotonin is directly connected to sexual compulsions. Studies show that pedophilia includes elevated levels of serotonin and we know elevated serotonin is a component in mania and mania is directly connected to gross errors in judgment when it comes to sexual behavior and sex abuse as I reported in my presentation to the FDA in their 12/2006 hearing on antidepressants: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

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!

ZOLOFT: STACY SCHULER, EX-OHIO TEACHER, REDUCED SENTENCE FOR HAVING SEX WITH 5 STUDENTS

r-STACY-SCHULER-large570[1]

Stacy Schuler, Lebbanon, OH Teacher

(Click link below the first article to see video)

Stated in the first article below:  “Testimony from a defense psychologist had suggested that Schuler’s medical and physical ailments, combined with her vegan diet and use of alcohol and an antidepressant, helped impair her ability to tell right from wrong.”

He could have summed it all up with “the antidepressant produced nymphomania & poor judgement & impulsive behavior by inducing manic behavior.”  The first case I testified in like this was in Utah in the mid 90’s. I had already followed the high profile case of Mary Kay Letourneau who had sex with a 13 year old student, spent 7 years in prison, gave birth to two of his children & then married him – something no one had seen before. She was diagnosed Bipolar so an antidepressant would pretty much be a given in that case although we were never able to document it. From that point on I began to track these cases of teacher/student sexual assaults. Women patients had reported over and over again that they began to act & feel like a teenager again on these drugs & women reported they began to date very young men while on antidepressants.

So far in looking at as many cases as I have been able to follow up on for a decade & a half there has been only one where I have not found an antidepressant involved in the case. When you understand how often antidepressants produce mania this should not be difficult to understand. Too many forget that one type of mania is nyphomania leading regularly to sexual indiscretions during manic episodes. Malcomb Bowers from Yale found over a decade ago in a study that 8% – 11% of those in psych wards of general hospitals were there because of SSRI antidepressant-induced mania (Bipolar). They then pointed out that it is so rare for doctors to notice that the antidepressant was the CAUSE of the mania (Bipolar) that the real rate should be expected to be far greater. If I recall correctly at that point the figures indicated that was 250,000 people a year becoming manic on the SSRI antidepressants which they expected to be a very low figure!

When you look at the types of mania possible coming from antidepressant use in considering the impact of this antidepressant-induced mania upon our society ….

…. besides nymphomania described as sexual compulsions – a pathologic preoccupation with sexual fantasies or activities leading to divorces, unwed pregnancies, sexual assaults of all kinds, not just female teachers seducing male students. The head of the sex abuse treatment program for Utah estimated 80% of sex crime perpetrators were on antidepressants at the time of the crime. While Karl Von Kleist, an ex-LAPD officer and leading polygraph expert estimated 90% of those accused in child sexual abuse were on antidepressants – strong evidence of manic sexual compulsions that demand attention.

….dipsomania is an overwhelming compulsion to drink alcohol leading to many new alcoholics, many more returning to drinking after years of sobriety, increased numbers of DUIs, alcohol related accidents, alcohol related criminal charges, etc.

….kleptomania compulsion to embezzle, shoplift, commit robberies of all types by those who have no history of such behavior before medication, embezzlement from employers, misappropriation of funds, etc.

….pyromania compulsion to start fires leading to many cases of arson, even to setting oneself on fire.

This is only a handful of MANY, MANY types of mania such as the wild spending sprees leading many into bankruptsy. And leaving questions for us about how many of our government leaders might be suffering from this wild spending stemming from antidepressant-induced mania.

Then when you look at the REM Sleep Behavior Disorder where 86% of those being diagnosed with it are taking an antidepressant you see the memory loss for the incident as well. In the third article below find this statement:

“Harry Plotnick, a toxicologist and attorney, testified that Schuler suffered from mania in connection with taking medically-prescribed Zoloft and that those effects were magnified by alcohol consumption.

“The effects of that interaction could cause blackouts, in which individuals aren’t aware of their actions, and memory loss, he said.

“Schuler’s attorneys have argued that it’s not known if the sexual acts occurred, because Schuler has no memory of them.”

BOOK TESTIMONIALS:

“VERY BOLD AND 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 Blake-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.”

WITHDRAWAL HELP CD TESTIMONIALS:

“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 Ambian. 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 Ann Blake-Tracy 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
