IF O.J. SIMPSON DID IT BLAME HIS PROZAC!!!

Many across the country watched the special posted below Sunday night on the 1994 murder case of O.J. Simpson but what no one heard was what seems to always be ommitted from these cases – the meds. This piece of information that came from O.J.’s good friend, Mike Gilbert, came out in a 2006 New York Post article.

The first two sentences read:  ” O.J. SIMPSON did have an accomplice in the murders a criminal jury said he didn’t commit – it was Prozac. That’s according to Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, who says the ex-grid great was flying high on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the grisly 1994 killings.”

Ironically  this murder took place the same month that my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!, hit the market. The case spanned a total of 11 months. Beginning in November 1994 and the ending October 1995. Of course I called his attorney Robert Shapiro and left the information that he needed to look for a Prozac prescription in this case because there were too many clues for me that O. J. was on the drug this could likely be another case. I also left him information that those with head injuries have more side effects which are more serious side effects than most. The latest stats I have seen indicate that 75% of football players have suffered head injuries.

Here is that full New York Post article on OJ’s case where his friend talks about the reactions OJ was having to his two prescriptions of Prozac.

IF HE DID IT, BLAME PROZAC

O.J. Simpson’s Friend, Sports Agent Mike Gilbert

November 26, 2006 – O.J. SIMPSON did have an accomplice in the murders a criminal jury said he didn’t commit – it was Prozac. That’s according to Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, who says the ex-grid great was flying high on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the grisly 1994 killings.

“O.J. is very much out of his mind . . . [which] was complicated by the Prozac,” says Gilbert, who adds that Simpson continued wolfing down the drug to help him withstand the pressure as cops put the heat on him. He believes Simpson’s disassociative state from Prozac allowed him to murder and avoid cracking. Over the years, the drug has been blamed for sparking murderous and psychotic behavior. In the wake of Simpson’s sickening attempt to cash in with a book, “If I Did It,” and TV special, both now shelved, Gilbert fumes: “I can’t forgive him for the way he has conducted himself since [the murders]. He’s the kind of guy who, were he on the Titanic, would have taken two life preservers for himself and watched his kids drown.”

Sadly what Mike Gilbert did not understand is that the self centered attitude & lack of concern for his loved ones he described O.J. as having after starting on this antidepressant is a direct side effect of Prozac in creating a narcissistic personality. So what he is saying he cannot forgive OJ for is actually a side effect of the drug.

If you have read my book & are therefore familiar with the REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) chapter, as you watch the video below note how many indicators there are that O.J. could have experienced RBD at the time of the murders. For those unfamiliar with RBD it is the most deadly of sleep disorders where you act out in your sleep the nightmare you are having. We know that 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are taking antidepressants. We also that RBD has long been known to include both murder & suicide & 80% of those who go into RBD hurt themselves or someone else, often with sporadic memory for the incident. And because RBD has long been known as mainly a drug withdrawal state this is Why it is so critical to avoid withdrawal via a VERY, VERY GRADUAL weaning down off antidepressants & avoiding abrupt changes in dose which might trigger RBD…
