Prozac Prescribed Immediately

“Within a few weeks (of taking Prozac), I began having nightmares of murdering people.”

Hi, I work shiftwork and I listen to Art Bell (for entertainment purposes only…ha ha) and I heard your interview with Barbara Simpson. I just wanted to write you and tell you my experience with Prozac.

About 8 years ago, I went to see a psychiatrist about my depression, and he immediately put me on Prozac, without saying five words to me. Within a few weeks, I began having nightmares of murdering people. They were so awful, I couldn’t sleep. I immediately went back to the doctor to tell him about my problem, and he said not to worry about it, it was COMPLETELY NORMAL ! !

I immediately stopped taking the drug and went to see a psychologist, instead. I have been depression free ever since, because of the therapy given to me by the psychologist. Oh, and by the way, the nightmares stopped immediately after I stopped taking the Prozac.

I guess the real reason I am writing is in response to the Andrea Yates trial in Houston. I don’t know her, but it was reported on the news that she was on four different anti-depressants at the same time. If this is true, it is no wonder she did what she did. It is her doctor and the drug companies that should be on trial for the murder of her children. Something has to be done about this and I hope you could use your knowledge of the subject to inform everyone about the dangers of these drugs. I have written all the local news agencies in Houston and sent them Links to your website and the drug awareness website.

Thanks, Gary

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!)
