My Son’s Suicide

 

Antidepressants

“His doctor put him on Paxil. after several months of Paxil. He committed suicide with a single gun shot wound to the head.”

My son was on Zoloft for several years for depression and OCD.

Then I started to see bi-polar symptoms in him but being over 18 everything between his MD and psychologist were confidential. His doctor put him on Paxil. after several months of Paxil. He committed suicide with a single gun shot wound to the head on November 3, 2001.

He was my only child. Please anyone who is a parent out there and has a child with a mental illness, do everything you possibly can so this never happens to you. It is a horrible experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.

After my son’s death. I did have an attorney contact me regarding the Paxil. After filling out a 15 page report. I was told because my son took other meds before the Paxil, I wasn’t able to be helped by them. I just wanted to share my story.

Posted in Breaking News - Our Most Recent Serotonin Nightmares., SSRI Survivor Stories.

Ann Blake Tracy, Executive Director,
International Coalition for Drug Awareness
(DrugAwareness.Org & SSRIstories.Net)
Author: ”Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare – The Complete Truth of the Full Impact of Antidepressants Upon Us & Our World” & Withdrawal CD “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!”

She has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants.

WITHDRAWAL 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!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: store.drugawareness.org And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan. You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
