If you click on the link and then go to each one of the pictures and click on them they will link to the articles discussing each case and the medications each person was on at the time of their crimes. Drugs which impair (inhibit) serotonin metabolism (SSRIs, SNRIs, Atypical Antipsychotics, etc.), thereby forcing serotonin to increase, can produce extreme out of character violence. This is documented in our database of 5000 antidepressant-induced tragedies (www.ssristories.net), as well as in many medical studies including the Kauffman study: SSRI Drugs: More Risks Than Benefits:
and the shocking mutant mice study by Dr. Jean Chen Shih and colleagues from the University of Southern California which everyone who is given an antidepressant, along with everyone who associates with those given an antidepressant, should be given a copy of at the time of prescription:

This beautiful little girl is Kinga Rzeszowski (5) who was stabbed to death along with her mother, younger brother, maternal grandfather, friend & her friend’s mother by her father who then stabbed himself 40 times even to the point of collapsing one of his lungs, then slashed his throat & wrists another 20 times! A jury in the UK has just found him not guilty of murder, but guilt of the lesser charge of manslaughter. A day or two before the murder he had overdosed on antidepressants. Few realize that as the serotonin rises you have an LSD or PCP reaction because the body reacts to LSD or PCP as a rush of serotonin. They mimic serotonin. There is little difference when antidepressants force the serotonin level too high! Would anyone have been surprised by his actions had he been taking PCP? Of course not! But they remain CLUELESS when it comes to this similar effect with antidepressants!!! So clueless that he continues taking a cocktail of drugs in prison – a common theme in these antidepressant-induced tragedies.
After two decades of testifying & consulting in these antidepressant-induced violent murders & suicides it amazes me how absolutely ignorant the entire world remains, including the court system, to the connection & true cause of such incomprehensible violence!!! I have worked Columbine & MANY other US school shootings, comedian Phil Hartman & his wife’s murder/suicide & MANY more murder/suicides wiping out entire families, Andrea Yates’ case & MANY other mothers who have killed their children over the past 20+ years. Yet the courts & everyone else seem to continue to remain ignorant of the fact that antidepressants cause you to act out your worst nightmare in a sleep state called a REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD). Of those being diagnosed with RBD 80% hurt themselves or someone else & 86% of those diagnosed with RBD were found to be taking an antidepressant. It antidepressant is the single most common denominator in these cases, yet it seems the whole world is failing the simple math in this case!
How do the pharmaceutical companies keep these cases suppressed the way they do?! They have LONG known their drugs cause these tragedies. The large numbers of secret settlements remain hidden from the public so you are not aware how often they happen. Goggle ssristories to see a database of just a few all too similar cases. (Especailly note the Donald Schell case in Wyoming) So WHO is guilty of premeditation in this case? Do you really think Damian Rzeszowski was warned that taking an antidepressant could possibly cause this? NO! And few other patients have ever been warned either!
You can continue to cry for vengeance upon this man or any of the others instead of looking at the true guilty parties in this horrific tragedy, but mark my words … in doing so the cost may be your life or the life of a loved one someday soon.! This is a serious public safety issue! When is someone near you on an antidepressant going to slip into a toxic nightmare (literal nightmare of RBD) & include you in that nightmare?
Look how many times this man stabbed himself! even to the point of collapsing his lung! That cannot happen without this frenzied drug state! He had just overdosed on these drugs. Tragically, few are aware that the brain goes dead before the body in an overdose with antidepressants. Why was he released from the hospital before the full toxic effect of the rising serotonin hit him to cause this psychotic reaction?
WARNING: If you are taking an antidepressant you must know that it is more likely that this violent sleep disorder, RBD, is more common in withdrawal .So, weaning off an antidepressant MUST be VERY, VERY gradual (months or years, rather than days or weeks) so as to avoid this serious toxic reaction.

Mom Charged With Capital Murder
Narjes Modarresi First Reported Her Baby Son Kidnapped
POSTED: Friday, April 23, 2010
UPDATED: 11:58 am CDT April 23, 2010
HOUSTON — A mother who first said her 2-month-old son was kidnapped and
then led investigators to his body has been charged with his death, police
told KPRC Local 2 Friday.
Narjes Modarresi, 28, was charged with capital murder in the death of
Court documents said she “knowingly caused the death by placing the baby’s
face down in mud and water.”
“The doctor performing the autopsy noted water and mud in the (baby’s)
lung, stomach and airway, concluding that (the baby) was alive prior to being
placed face down in the muddy water and buried,” a court official read in
The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the baby’s cause of death as
Modarresi did not appear in magistrate court Friday morning because
authorities said she is at the Woman’s County Jail undergoing a mental
Houston police issued an Amber Alert for Masih Wednesday after his mother
reported that he was snatched from his stroller in the 8000 block of
Woodway Drive, near Briar Bend Park, at about 5:30 p.m.
Detectives said they questioned the mother and her story was inconsistent.
At about 2 a.m. Thursday, the mother led officers to Masih’s body, which
was found in a muddy stream near where she said he was abducted, police
Officials said the couple also has a 3-year-old, who has been placed with
Relatives said Modarresi was from Iran and was learning to speak English.
She has only been in the United States for a few years, family members
Her family said Modarresi was depressed and on medication.
George Parnham was hired as Modarresi’s attorney. Parnham is best known
for defending Andrea Yates, 45, who drowned her five children on June 20,
2001, while she suffered from postpartum depression.
Dr. Richard Pesikoff, with the Baylor College of Medicine, said there are
three levels of depression — the third level being most severe —
postpartum depression with psychotic features.
“Not only are you severely depressed, but your ability to tell the
difference between what’s real and what’s not real is lost. At this point, you
hear stories about mothers who kill their children,” Pesikoff said.
Pesikoff is not treating Modarresi.
NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy (www.drugawareness.org): After specializing in antidepressant adverse reactions for 20
years I would say that Lexapro is one of the worst. Giving it, or any other antidepressant, to someone with previous substance abuse problems is criminal! These drugs produce OVERWHELMING CRAVINGS for alcohol and other drugs. They can take those who have never touched these substances before & turn them into addicts almost overnight. (www.drugawareness.org/book-excerpts/ssris-and-alcohol) Antidepressants are notorious for producing mania/bipolar. One of the forms of mania is described as uncontrollable cravings for alcohol.
Adverse reactions can be worse: the deaths of Brynn & Phil Hartman & Andrea Yates’ 5 children. Then there’s the man in Palm Beach who after years of a happy hetrosexual life ran off to NY for a sex change operation after starting an antidepressant. He returned to his wife extremely remorseful & with no idea why he did what he had done.
Paragraphs 2 & 3 read: “ Artie Lange was noticeably quieter than usual on Monday morning’s broadcast, only peppering the on-air conversations with an occasional joke or cutting remark. About two hours into the broadcast,Artie Lange finally broke his silence about Friday’s DUI. After stating that: “for once I’m actually doing something sensible and listening to my lawyer and not talking about it,” Artie Lange went on to tease the audience with a few details of the incident that catapulted him to the top of Google Trends on Friday, despite The HowardStern Show having been off air for a full two weeks.”
“ Artie Lange insists that he blew a 0.0 on the Breathalyzer test that he was given at the scene of the accident. Artie Lange also reported that he was also given a urine test at the police station. Artie Lange states that there were no illicit drugs in his system, and that all the analysts will find that could possibly explain his erratic driving is the antidepressant Lexapro.”
Is Lexapro to blame for Artie Lange‘s DUI?
July 13, 9:05 AM
At long last, The Howard Stern Show returned to the air live this Monday morning. With the abundance of celebrity news to catch up on and current box office topper “Bruno” in the studio, Howard Stern Show fans really only wanted to hear about one thing: Artie Lange’s DUI. After proclaiming that he had been clean and sober for months, ArtieLange was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Friday after a fender bender in Tom’s River, New Jersey.
Artie Lange was noticeably quieter than usual on Monday morning’s broadcast, only peppering the on-air conversations with an occasional joke or cutting remark. About two hours into the broadcast, Artie Lange finally broke his silence about Friday’s DUI. After stating that: “for once I’m actually doing something sensible and listening to my lawyer and not talking about it,” Artie Lange went on to tease the audience with a few details of theincident that catapulted him to the top of Google Trends on Friday, despite The Howard Stern Show having been off air for a full two weeks.
Artie Lange insists that he blew a 0.0 on the Breathalyzer test that he was given at the scene of the accident. ArtieLange also reported that he was also given a urine test at the police station. Artie Lange states that there were no illicit drugs in his system, and that all the analysts will find that could possibly explain his erratic driving is theantidepressant Lexapro.
Artie Lange spoke openly about his struggles with depression in his recent bestselling book “ Too Fat to Fish.” Inthe past, the comedian has rejected the idea of taking antidepressants to treat his mood, despite his willingness to dabble in the spectrum of illegal substances.
But could Lexapro really be to blame for Artie Lange’s DUI? Fans, friends and family members of Artie Lange are all thinking the same thing: the whole story sounds too fat to fishy. In Artie Lange’s defense, the official website forLexapro lists among the drug’s safety precautions: “Patients should be cautioned about operating hazardous machinery, including automobiles, until they are reasonably certain that Lexapro does not affect their ability to engage in such activities.” Although Artie Lange did not state how long he has been taking Lexapro, he did report that he started it “recently.”
Artie Lange has stated that he has “a lot to say” about Friday’s DUI arrest, and that he is looking forward to talking openly on the subject once his lawyer approves it. Artie Lange is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, July 17th.
