Alyssa Bustamante, 15
While on Prozac this young teenager, in an act completely out of character for her, strangled, stabbed and slit the throat of a 9 year old neighbor girl because she wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone even though she had no history of violence, was an excellent student and known to her friends as one of their sweetest and nicest friends. As a result of being medicated for four years she had a history of suicide attempts, and her intention for committing a murder/suicide was made clear by the fact she had dug TWO graves, not just one for the neighbor girl. She wrote in her diary how great it felt and then laughed saying she had to run now to go to a church dance.
Later in court she would say, “If I could give my life to get her back I would. I’m sorry.”
Alyssa is one of MANY children who have murdered someone while under the influence of an antidepressant. Please see below the link to this movie the information as to how these drugs cause such a reaction to make someone do something so completely out of character for them. A news story on Alyssa’s case can be found on our database of cases here: http://ssristories.net/archive/show96f8.html?item=3776
THE MOVIE: THE DRUGGING OF OUR CHILDREN
If you have not yet seen the Gary Null production “The Drugging of our Children” NOW is the time to do it!!!!! You will see Ann Blake-Tracy, Michael Moore, Neal Bush, Columbine victim Mark Taylor and his newly acquired friend, Corey Baadsgard, who ironically, just happens to look a lot like Eric Harris who shot Mark at Columbine, (Corey almost became a school shooter after attempting to switch from Paxil to Effexor when he blacked out and held his classmates at gunpoint for 45 minutes), etc..
This is one of the best videos yet on the problem with antidepressants being used in our youth! Please view and share with others!!!! Click below to view the full length movie. It is very well done!
DREAM OR REALITY???? ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A DEADLY
SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE
What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.
This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly. Why are we subjecting children to any of these extremely serious and deadly reactions when many adults cannot handle it?!!
EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE
What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study: http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

This is GREAT!!!! What is so tragic is that it is so true! Thank heavens for Senator Grassley who is doing such a wonderful job of holding more and more of these doctors accountable for doing exactly this! Are you reading this Senator Grassley? You have saved many lives & obtained some form of justice for many lives that have been lost!

Ann Blake-Tracy, head of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness, author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? & Our Serotonin Nightmare. For 15 years I have testified in court cases involving antidepressants. The last 17 years of my life have been devoted to researching, writing, and lecturing about these drugs.
Two of my nieces in their early 20’s, a decade apart, attempted suicide on antidepressants, the first on Prozac, the second just a month ago on Wellbutrin.
Due to time constraints I refer you to my September, 2004 testimony on the damaging effects of inhibiting serotonin metabolism – the very mode of action of antidepressants. Impairing serotonin metabolism results in a multitude of symptoms including suicide, violent crime, mania and psychosis. Suicidal ideation is, without question, associated with these drugs.
Rosie Meysenburg, Sara Bostock and I have collected and posted 1200 [now 3000] news articles documenting many exaggerated acts of violence against self or others at www.drugawareness.org with a direct link to www.ssristories.drugawareness.org
Beyond suicidal ideation we have mania/bipolar increasing dramatically. Antidepressants have always been known to trigger both.
According to the Pharmaceutical Business Review in the last 11 years alone, the number of people in the U.S. with “bipolar” disorder has increased by 4.8 million. [a 4000% increase]
Dr. Malcolm Bowers of Yale, found in the late 90’s over 200,000 people yearly are hospitalized with antidepressant-induced manic psychosis. They also point out that most go unrecognized as medication-induced, remain un hospitalized, and a threat to themselves and others.
What types of threats from manias?
Pyromania: A compulsion to start fires
Kleptomania: A compulsion to embezzle, shoplift, commit robberies
Dipsomania: An uncontrollable urge to drink alcohol
Nymphomania and erotomania: Sexual compulsions – a pathologic preoccupation with sexual fantasies or activities
Child sex abuse has increased dramatically with even female teachers going manic on these drugs and seducing 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% – strong evidence of manic sexual compulsions that demand attention.
Diabetes has skyrocketed, has been linked to antidepressants, and blood sugar imbalances have long been suspected as the cause of mania or bipolar. Anyone who has witnessed someone in insulin shock would see the striking similarity to a violent reaction to an antidepressant.
If there has been any increase in suicide since the black box warning it is due to doctors not knowing how to get patients off these drugs safely.
Clearly far too many lives are being destroyed in various ways by these drugs.
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!
