TWO SOLDIERS PRESCRIBED 54 DRUGS: MILITARY MENTAL HEALTH “TREATMENT” BECOMES FRANKENPHARMACY

andrew-white[1]

Marine Corporal Andrew White was prescribed

19 mind altering drugs in less than one year in the military

which led to his sudden death while home asleep in his bed.

The second article in a four part series by Kelly Patricia O’Meara addressing the over drugging of our military just came out entitled “Two Soldiers Prescribed 54 Drugs: Military Mental Health “Treatment” Becomes Frankenpharmacy” See the article link below:

Although this is a horrible situation in America with suicides outnumbering combat deaths due to the widespread use of these deadly drugs in our military, this is going on in many countries. Even Osama Bin Laden’s son has been diagnosed schizophrenic after his doctors said it was caused by his use of antidepressants. The LA Times reporter who did an amazing report about the Taliban & these medications quotes in his article in the Seattle Times the Taliban psychiatrist who said taking these antidepressant drugs is like “swallowing a little piece of God” – the question would be whose God is that??? Yes it has become the new sacrament for far too many religions! He went on to talk about a leader in his army who continually put himself on the frontline of each battle because he became so suicidal. So this is clearly a worldwide problem.

Andrew’s father, Stan White, is doing much to gather all of the American families together who have lost sons to these drugs whether it be a sudden death as was Andrew’s or a suicide or a murder/suicide. Please refer anyone with a military background to Stan so that he can document these cases. The tragic suicide we posted a few days ago of Tony Orban would be yet another. Tony was a decorated soldier who served well & had only been with the police department for five years before he had his reaction to Zoloft after being prescribed the drug for PTSD from his service in the military. These cases are everywhere! Notice how often it is a vet involved in one of these antidepressant-induced crimes.

As you read through Kelly’s article keep in mind the death of Anna Nicole Smith’s young son Daniel as he slept in a chair at a Florida hospital while visiting his mother & new baby sister. Daniel was only 20, young & healthy, but on a combination of antidepressants & other serotonergic medications. I was interviewed with & worked with the famous forensic pathologist, Dr. Cyril Wecht, on Daniel’s case. In discussing the case it seemed quite clear to us that this was not just sudden cardiac failure, but very possibly multiple organ failure, the result of Serotonin Syndrome, produced by the combination of serotonergic medications he was taking. Such seems to be the case with these young men as well. Generally only two serotonergic medications given together can produce Serotonin Syndrome while these young men were given many serotonergic medications in combination.

To go to Kelly’s article click here: www.cchrint.org/2012/10/30/military-mental-health-treatment-becomes-frankenpharmacy/

One of my favorite parts of the article is Kelly’s assessment of the cozy ties & mentality in the military doing the “treating” of these young men:

“Matthew J. Friedman, the executive director of the Department of Veterans Affairs National Center for PTSD, and Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology at Dartmouth Medical School, was on the payroll of AstraZeneca, the maker of Seroquel. And, while a consultant to AstraZeneca, Friedman was one of four authors of the American Psychiatric Association’s 2009 Practice Guide for the Treatment of Patients with Acute Stress Disorder and PTSD.[1] Additionally, as a proponent of SSRI medications to treat PTSD, Friedman also sat on the PTSD Scientific Advisory Boards for GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer—the makers of the antidepressants Paxil and Zoloft.[2]

“Despite Dr. Friedman’s belief that cocktails of mind-altering drugs will “help” those suffering from combat related symptoms, White’s symptoms not only persisted but worsened, and VA, military and civilian psychiatrists returned to their laboratories, ever convinced the next multi-drug elixir would elicit remarkable results.”

NEW STUDY: MORE FRUIT, MORE VEGGIES, MORE HAPPY

517212252 3[1]

In 1997 Dr. Canadace Pert Warned Us … 

Yet another reminder of what Dr. Candace Pert stated years ago (TIME Oct. 20, 1997). As she came out firmly against the SSRI antidepressants calling them “monsters.” She went on to say she wished she had never been involved with their birth & development. She further encouraged patients to look to diet & exercise as modalities to cure their depression.

“I am alarmed at the monster that Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Solomon Snyder and I created 25 years ago. Prozac and other antidepressant serotonin-receptor-active compounds may also cause cardiovascular problems in some susceptible people in long-term use, which has become common practice despite the lack of safety studies.

“The public is being misinformed about the precision of these selective serotonin-uptake inhibitors when the medical profession oversimplifies their action in the brain and ignores the body as if it exists merely to carry the head around. In short, these molecules of emotion regulate every aspect of our physiology. A new paradigm has evolved, with implications that lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise can offer profound, safe and natural mood elevation.”

Those of you familiar with my work will not be the least bit surprised by the results of the following new study. For instance we have long known that antidepressants deplete both calcium & magnesium which is likely why so many Patients who have used antidepressants end up with the symptoms of fibromyalgia. The best way to rebuild those nutrients is by using dark leafy greens which are full of very easily digestible calcium & magnesium.

Fruits & veggies are filled with good healthy nutrition to build the body & brain rather than act as a stimulant as meat does.

Stimulant? Yes. When you introduce the DNA of an animal into your system the body looks at it no differently than it would any other foreign protein, such as an organ transplant…it immediately rushes to reject it recognizing it as not a part of your body makeup. In that rush to reject the foreign protein you get an adrenalin rush.

But what does adrenalin do? It pushes you beyond what energy level you actually have built with good nutrition in order to deal with a crisis situation. So what happens after the initial adrenalin high? You hit a low as the body is further depleted of critical nutrients.

Too simplified? Just keep the thought in mind as you read through the following new research:

There are 3 or 4 excellent short videos with this article. I would encourage you to watch them all. And after you watch those videos here is another short video I just found with some really great ideas about eating more fruit & veggies:

NEW STUDY: MORE FRUIT, MORE VEGGIES, MORE HAPPY

THURSDAY, Oct. 11, 2012 — Feeling blue? Perhaps you need more reds, greens, and yellows in your diet. According to a new study from the University of Warwick and Dartmouth College, upping your fruit and veggie intake to seven servings daily from the typically recommended five servings promotes happiness and improved mental health.

Researchers studied the dietary habits of 80,000 people in Britain and surveyed participants on life satisfaction, mental well-being, history or presence of mental disorders, nervousness, feelings of depression, and personal self-reported health and happiness.

As subjects’ daily intake of fruits and vegetables increased, so did their sense of happiness and well-being. The dose-dependent pattern peaked at seven servings per day; eating more yielded no additional mood enhancement.

Though experts recommend five servings of fruits and vegetables per day for optimal health, the authors of the study report that 25 percent of British people consume one or no servings each day, and only a tenth of the entire British population meets the seven or more a day goal.

And according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 14 percent of adult Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables, with 33 percent getting the recommended two or more daily servings of fruit, and 27 percent meeting the recommended three or more daily servings of vegetables.

“The statistical power of fruit and vegetables was a surprise. Diet has traditionally been ignored by well-being researchers,” says Sarah Stewart-Brown, MD, professor of public health at Warwick Medical School and study co-author. However, she stresses that there is still more to learn regarding the link between serving size and its effect on mood and well-being.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? MICHIGAN STATE UNIV PROFESSOR STRIPS NUDE IN CLASS AFTER BEGINNING TO RANT

o-MICHIGAN-STATE-PROF-NAKED-570[1]

Arrest of Math Professor at MSU

THIS CASE WILL LIKELY HELP US TO UNDERSTAND WHY WE SHOULD NEVER UNDER-ESTIMATE THE VAST POSSIBILITIES OF ANTIDEPRESSANT INDUCED MANIA!!! 

A Michigan State Math professor began cursing & ranting about computers (that is certainly understandable!) & ranting about how everything is just an act. He then began pacing up & down the hallway & screaming “There is no F-ing God!” Next he rapidly evacuated the entire classroom by coming back into the room & stipping nude, except for his socks, all the while continuing to swear a blue streak. (The cursing like a sailor is a common report we have had with antidepressant use from the beginning. Little old ladies report they began swearing which was shocking to them.)

“He made the weirdest analogies, the most notable being about beating his wife,” the student added.
Before stripping, the professor was “ranting about computers, Steve Jobs (pronounced Jobes), and how everything is just an act,” another student wrote.
The man is not being charged with a crime, but was taken to a local hospital, MSU said. Meanwhile, the school’s counseling center “has reached out to students who may have witnessed the incident to offer any support they need.”

AUSTIN STATESMAN – UNCOUNTED CASUALTIES: IRAQ VETS: HOME, BUT NOT SAFE

Scores of recent Texas war veterans have died of overdoses, suicide and vehicle crashes, investigation finds

1 jwj Dead Veterans day1 drugs[1]

Daniel Pilgrim, 12 , and his grandparents Randy and Judy Pilgrim visit the grave of Daniel’s father, Lance.

10 jwj Dead Veterans day1 drugs[1]

Kimberly Mitchell weeps at the grave of her husband, Chad Mitchell, who died of an accidental prescription drug overdose.

The Austin Statesman ran an incredibly well done & way overdue article today on what is happening to our veterans!!! True investigative reporting – something I thought had died an untimely death in this country! Thank you Austin Stateman!

For the past 20 years I have directed the International Coalition for Drug Awareness, www.drugawareness.org, to track these cases because so many are directly related to the massive use of antidepressants by our military. We have many cases documented in a database put together by our Texas Director which you can find at www.SSRIstories.com

Suicide, homicide, alcoholism & REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

These drugs are being given to a population generally within the age group (under 25) who the FDA has warned has double the chance of suicide if they take an antidepressant. They are dying in their sleep due to interactions between antidepressants & pain killers, or becoming alcoholic as antidepressants produce overwhelming cravings for alcohol. We have been seeing far too many veterans come home & commit murder/suicide on these drugs, or commit mass murders. Many remain unaware that antidepressants have not just suicidal ideation as an increased side effect, but also homicidal ideation. Ideation is constant ruminating thoughts or almost a compulsion … so these are increased compulsions or thoughts that will not be quieted about either killing themselves or others or both. They are even more dangerous for veterans because of the fact that 86% of those diagnosed with REM Sleep Behavior Disorder, where you act out nightmares in a sleepwalk state – some driving many miles to kill others, are those taking antidepressants. Anyone knows that someone recently returning from war is going to have nightmares worse than most. The problems due to meds are absolutely staggering.

Eric Harris unqualified for military service due to antidepressant use

All of this is absolutely insane when you see the changes in policy from just over a decade ago when anyone on one of these drugs would be turned away from the military because they did not want someone on a mind altering drug (especially those that can produce suicide, homicide & paranoia) carrying a gun in a war situation. The use of an antidepressant is why Eric Harris, one of the Columbine shooters, was turned down by the military in 1999. Seeing the extreme dangers can be made obvious in the case of Sgt. John Michael Russel of Sherman while having a toxic reaction to his antidepressant opened fire at a mental health clinic in Iraq killing 5 fellow soldiers. And as more comes out in similar cases we will see these drugs were involved in them as well.

Stan White, a father with a mission

Stan White is a father who has been fighting to get the truth out about what these drugs are doing to our troops. He lost one son in combat & the other to a medication interaction after he returned home. I would hope that families contact him & join together to put an end to this nightmare. You are welcome to find him as one of my friends on Facebook if you cannot find him otherwise.

ANTIDEPRESSANT??? SIX DEAD AS MAN KILLS ANOTHER MAN RANDOMLY THEN KILLS WIFE, 3 CHILDREN & SELF

11076595-large[1]

Besides all the killing he apparently set his home on fire as well because the bodies of his wives & children had to be pulled out of the burning home. So there was arson, mass murder & suicide, random killing using a bat (baseball bats seem to be very common in antidepressant murders), extreme violence requiring much strength, it happened in the early morning hours, & was all done by a man who had no previous record of violence. It also took place in Oregon where there has been one of the highest uses of antidepressants in the country. So there is a long list here of symptoms of elevated serotonin – clues pointing to the involvement of an antidepressant.

Then the text he sent his father-in-law before killing himself is very odd indicating possible hallucinations of someone else doing the killings while he tried to stop them. “Please forgive me,” the text said. “They took control of my body and did it. I BEGGED THEM NOT TO BUT THEY DID. I’m so sorry.”

These killings also happened very quickly & are so very simjilar to the case out of England I posted just weeks ago where he stabbed his wife, father-in-law, two children, the wife’s friend & her child, before stabbing himself 40 times & slashing his throat & wrists 20 times. We know that was a Prozac-induced murder/suicide attempt. This is much too similar and a case that should be investigated for the involvement of an SSRI without a doubt.

BAN ON DRIVING FOR ANTIDEPRESSANT USERS? STUDY INDICATES 70% INCREASED RISK OF ACCIDENTS

article-0-04CBD181000005DC-108 233x381[1]

As usual early warnings about driving risks went unheeded.

FINALLY someone has done a study to investigate the problems with antidepressants & car accidents….and it only took 25 years since the drugs were introduced to get around to someone doing it! Let’s put it on record here that I approached a group focusing on prescription drug DUIs in 1991 asking them to seriously consider looking at the problems with Prozac & driving. Obviously it fell on deaf ears as so many other warnings I have given over the years.

When I first began interviewing patients about their reactions to the SSRI antidepressants in the early 90’s I stopped driving on freeways whenever possible. Why? Because patient after patient reported that although back then it was not allowed for pilots to fly planes while on SSRIs, they while on Prozac were:

#1 “flying their cars” down freeways,

#2 “having compulsions to ram other cars” as they drove the freeway, and

#3 “dreaming while driving” and having little recollection of how they got from Point A to Point B.

I also began watching my rear view mirror closely to make sure no one dreaming on Prozac had neglected to include my car in their dream so that they could react properly & allow for it being in front of them.  And  I began watching for cars coming at me going the wrong direction since so many attempted suicide reports came in of crossing into oncoming traffic & driving on the wrong side of the road to attempt suicide.

I would also encourage you to read the Road Rage document written by Rosie Meysenburg & posted in the mid 90’s on our www.drugawareness.org website.

From this recent study we learn:

“They have found that taking common antidepressants such as Prozac and Seroxat [Paxil] heightens the risk by 70 per cent.

AND in looking at drugs like Xanax, Valium, Ambien, & the newer atypical antipsychotics like Zyban, Abilify, Geodon, Risperdol, etc. the antidepressants are far worse: “Those taking a common group of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which include Prozac and Seroxat [Paxil] were 72 per cent more at risk.”

But what if someone had just started on an antidepressant?

According to the study: “Even patients who have only been on the pills for a few hours are far more likely to have a crash if they get behind the wheel.”

Now keep in mind that patients are told when they are given an antidepressant that it will take two weeks before the “beneficial” effects begin to appear. Bear in mind that the adverse effects DO NOT wait two weeks to appear. This is one example. The Paxil-induced murder/suicide case of Donald Schell is another glaring example after the jury ruled after hearing all the evidence (which few have ever heard), that taking only two Paxil pills over two days was the main cause of him shooting his wife, daughter, infant granddaughter, & himself. (Read more on this case called Tobin vs Glaxo Smith Kline at www.justiceseekers.com)

Two years ago I got a report out of Utah where the officer in a Ogden, Utah area reported that in a one month period he had 150 DUIs issued. ONE of those involved alcohol & all the rest were prescription drugs! But many remain unaware that you can face a DUI for driving while taking one of these medications. And now these researchers were so completely appalled by what they found in the way of impairment of driving skills by antidepressants that they are recommending that users be banned from driving!

Ban all antidepressant users from driving?

“Researchers say the study shows that doctors should be banning patients from getting behind the wheel as soon as they put them on a course of drugs.”

Now that would certainly clear up traffic congestion in Utah, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Florida, & North Carolina – long known as hot spots for these meds! But the use of these drugs is so widespread at this point it would likely clear the traffic nationwide & if imposed in Australia, 25% of the Australian parliament would have to take a cab to work. I am sure far more American law makers would have to do the same!

What is even more frightening to consider is that truck drivers, bus drivers, taxi drivers, and now pilots are allowed to take these medications that severely impair driving skills.

Revisiting Princess Di’s Death

Remember that Princess Di’s driver, Henri Paul was on Prozac. When I saw his blood alcohol level of three times the legal limit coupled with the reports from his family that he was not a drinker yet was drinking hard enough to be on a medication like antabuse, I knew he had to be taking Prozac. It was the only thing that added up. (See my article on SSRIs & alcohol cravings as an excerpt from my book just below the book picture at www.drugawareness.org)

So I called the police in Paris & explained that Prozac was the only thing I knew that would cause someone to crave alcohol like that & raise the level of alcohol so high in a man who was reportedly a non-drinker. The following week the Paris police announced publicly that they had confirmed that Henri Paul was indeed on Prozac at the time of the crash that took the lives of Princess Di & Dodi Al-Fayed. This report only adds to my conclusion that Prozac was the main cause for their deaths with the chances of an accident being increased by 70% with Prozac alone & who knows by what percent with the alcohol cravings producing a synergistic effect between the alcohol & Prozac & forcing the blood alcohol content even higher than normal.

Was there a failure to warn by manufacturers? Without a doubt!

“Although some manufacturers put warning notices on boxes telling patients their judgment may be impaired, they don’t specifically tell them not to drive.
“But it is now thought that the same chemical changes that improve mood among those who take the pills also slows down reaction times.”

That last sentence should read: “But it is now thought that the same chemical changes that DESTROY mood among those who take the pills also slows down reaction times.” But if they have not yet read my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare they likely are not yet aware of that fact either.

SALT LAKE TRIBUNE & DESERET NEWS: 1997 Ann Blake-Tracy DISCUSSES ANTIDEPRESSANT-INDUCED BRAIN DAMAGE

images[1]

images[1]

Several articles by me, Ann Blake-Tracy, were published in the Citizens’s Section of the Salt Lake Tribune & Deseret News in 1997 & 1998. The publishers just could not seem to get enough of what I was writing about these drugs until pressure was brought to bear to discontinue that section of the news. Gee, I wonder why? But here is a copy of what I believe may have been the very first article I wrote for them. Note I was discussing the brain damage from antidepressants back in the 90’s as these new studies are only bringing it out now.

Do I believe the brain damage associated with these medications is permanent? NO! But I am an eternal optimist also. I firmly believe there are several alternative treatments that can turn this damage around.  Certainly it will take time & effort, but I believe it can be done. I also believe the drug manufacturers are who should foot the bill for the necessary treatments to assist in healing from the effects of their deadly drugs. Now to the article:

CITIZEN’S Section of the Salt Lake Tribune & Deseret News

December 3, 1997

Since my book, PROZAC: PANACEA OR PANDORA? was the catalyst for Ruth Lehenbauer’s article (Citizens, September. 24) which has triggered a two month long debate on the pros and cons of antidepressants, it seems only fitting and proper that I respond to this latest article by the U of U Mood Disorders Clinic (CITIZEN’S, December. 3). [The most popular serotonergic medications are: Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine), Luvox (fluvoxamine), Effexor(venaflexomine), Serzone (nefazadone), Anafranil (clomipramine), Fen-Phen (fenfluramine), & Redux (dexfenfluramine).]

Candace B. Pert, Research Professor, Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, D.C

While the Mood Disorders Clinic defends these drugs, the discoverer of the serotonin binding process which made this whole group of serotonergic medications possible, Dr. Candace Pert, stated in TIME (October. 20), “I AM ALARMED AT THE MONSTER that Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Solomon Snyder and I created when we discovered the simple binding assay for drug receptors 25 years ago. Prozac and other antidepressant serotonin-receptor-active compounds may also cause cardiovascular problems in some susceptible people after long-term use, which has become common practice despite the lack of safety studies.”

“…the public is being misinformed…”

“The public is being misinformed about the precision of these selective serotonin-uptake inhibitors when the medical profession oversimplifies their action in the brain and ignores the body as if it exists merely to carry the head around! In short, these molecules of emotion regulate every aspect of our physiology. A new paradigm has evolved, with implications that life-style changes such as diet and exercise can offer profound, safe and natural mood elevation.”

Dangers:

Prozac’s FDA approval was based on only six week safety studies. Latest figures on Prozac show 39,000 adverse reaction reports filed with the FDA. Not even close was runner-up Norplant, a contraceptive, with 24,000 reports. The FDA’s “serious” side effect classification includes death, hospitalization, cancer, and permanent disability. Again Prozac placed in the number one position with 8,600 adverse reaction reports. And again second place didn’t even come close as Coumadin accumulated 4,800 reports. The fact that four antidepressants (Prozac #1, Paxil #4, Zoloft #7, Effexor #19) rank in the top 20 for side effects emphasizes their basic toxicity and potential for danger.

Withdrawal:

In the December THE WASHINGTONIAN Thomas Moore, author of DEADLY MEDICINE, discussed antidepressant withdrawal and stated, “Few drug companies are likely to volunteer to pay for an expensive study that has a good chance of revealing a new drug hazard.” During clinical trials investigators of Effexor found that 35% experienced withdrawal. [With the high rate of withdrawal I see with Effexor it sounds to me like those investigators had blinders on!!!!] Withdrawal can go unnoticed with the other serotonergic medications because in longer-term use severe withdrawal is often delayed several months. Patient and physician alike, mistake the symptoms of withdrawal as the reemergence of the symptoms of depression. The patient is given the drug again and the withdrawal symptoms disappear. The reintroduction of the drug stops the drug withdrawal – your first evidence of drug dependence!

Among patients, Prozac and Zoloft have gained a reputation for addictiveness and withdrawal. Paxil is gaining a reputation worldwide for serious withdrawal. (Obviously the two researchers for Paxil, who were just indicted on 172 counts of fraudulent research, missed that aspect of this popular Prozac clone.) One of the side effects of serotonergic drugs is joint and muscle pain (part of the cause for the recall of the first SSRI introduced in Norway) which becomes more pronounced in withdrawal leading to a diagnosis of MS or fibromyalgia. Patients continue to report withdrawal symptoms of nausea and vomiting, electrical shocks throughout the body, burning pains, severe insomnia leading to mania, crying, anger, anxiety or adrenalin rushes, chronic fatigue, nightmares, suicidal thoughts, etc.

Brain Damage:

Elevated levels of serotonin, exactly what these drugs are designed to produce, are associated with brain damage, psychosis, mania, mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, mental retardation, constriction of the bronchial tubes and arteries to the heart, etc. The new NIH study on brain damage and fenfluramine would naturally cause scientists to suspect the possibility of brain damage with other serotonergic medications.

Thomas Moore adds, “The safety of antidepressants is supposedly proven by the fact that they have been taken by more than 20 million Americans. Yet virtually no meaningful research has been conducted on their long-term risks. . . . there is no evidence that antidepressants prevent suicide – and dark hints that they may even encourage it. When society turns a blind eye to the dangers of drugs and rushes to embrace a pharmaceutical cure for nearly every condition, there is almost no end to the harm that may result.”

Sexual Promiscuity:

The unrestrained sex drive leading to promiscuity as a result of Prozac is easily explained. The drug produces a form of insanity known as mania. Sexual promiscuity, even among those who would never consider it normally, is a major symptom of mania, as is alcohol consumption, rages leading to domestic abuse, delusions of grandeur (often mistaken for increased feelings of self confidence), wild spending, various types of criminal behavior, etc. Although the drug manufacturer estimates that approximately 1% of Prozac users develop mania, FDA reports of mania continue to come in, indicating higher figures. Fieve, who specializes in manic depression, estimates in his book PROZAC that 2% of Prozac users experience mania. So we currently have approximately 750,000 cases of mania induced by Prozac. How many will other SSRIs produce?

Far more frightening is that the latest study being used to defend Prozac for use among children admits that twice that number of children or 6% involved in this study were dropped because they developed mania within only eight weeks of Prozac use. If that figure also ends up being two times higher, we will have 12% of the children who use Prozac experiencing these devastating symptoms of mania.

Politics:

Drug companies go to great lengths to get new drugs approved and to get the most out of their patent time on a new drug. Physicians who could lose their next drug research project, and therefore their livelihood, feel pressured to defend drugs. The U of U Mood Disorders Clinic exists because of the millions they bring in for the university in drug research money. Prescription drugs are now the third leading cause of death in America (between 200,000 to 250,000 deaths per year) and Utah uses two to three times the national average of mind-altering prescription drugs. Taking the death toll into consideration as well as the fact that Prozac has more adverse reaction reports than any drug in the history of the FDA, I have trouble understanding why conscientious caring physicians would have any problem with critical information getting out to the public about these drugs. You would think they would be concerned about this serious health risk and emphasize along with Dr. Pert and myself the use of safe and effective alternatives such as diet, exercise, proper sleep, etc.

These prescribing physicians [in the article this was in reponse to] made a dangerous error in their article when they referred to Paxil as peroxate, when it is paroxetine, and Zoloft as sertrole, when it is sertraline. Although this may seem insignificant or petty to the reader, when a drug is misspelled on the prescription pad it can cause a fatal drug reaction or interaction.

ANTIDEPRESSANT??? ONE DEAD AS BUSINESSMAN OPENS FIRE AT QUEBEC POLITICAL VICTORY CELEBRATION

web-suspect[1]

Richard Henry Bain, 61, shooting suspect

Suspect in Quebec shooting identified as Mont-Tremblant businessman who has now been hospitalized

Wednesday morning the Quebec political victory party was marred by a shooting that killed one & seriously injured another as a man in a blue bathrobe carrying an assault rifle opened fire, then set a fire outside the building before he was apprehended.

As usual in most antidepressant-induced shootings the man’s previous offenses were minor traffic violations only. His actions were completely out of character and according to friend’s they are in shock by the behavior.

“The man police say opened fire outside the Parti Québécois victory party at midnight, killing a technician and wounding another man, is a trained engineer with a ski lodge near Mont-Tremblant, says one man who was shocked to see his friend Richard Henry Bain on TV early Wednesday morning.

“I can’t believe he would get to that point,” the man told The Globe and Mail. “He’s a businessman who’s very generous with his time. He’s not a man who needs money.”

ANTIDEPRESSANT? Whidby Island County’s SWAT Team Responds After Man Threatens to Burn House Down

 

8434whidbeyjs-rogers[1]

Following find my comment & comments from others on this case, including friends of the family:

Ann Blake-Tracy · Top Commenter · Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org)

“Yet another patient going manic on his antidepressant, huh? How many of these does the state of Washington need to see before they wake up to this nightmare? Google SSRIstories & look at all of the cases in the state of Washington alone! Mania (in this case pyromania) is a fairly common reaction with antidepressants. And it seems the AK47’s must come with the prescription because they all tend to end up with one! Someone had better wean him safely off those meds before he follows through on the drug-induced rage he is having. So sorry yet another good family is suffering from this!”

Amber Weber · Powell CDC-Certified Treatment Assistant at Iowa Lutheran Hospital “My dad successfully burned down our home while on these drugs years ago.”

Scott Chezick · Columbia College
“I was sad to see these events transpire. Chris Rogers is a friend of my sons and I have to say on the occasions I spoke with Chris, I was impressed by his affable, genuine, and respectful nature. My son often commented that Chris and his family were some of the nicest people he had ever met. I hope Chris finds the help he needs and wish his family the best.”

ANTIDEPRESSANT??? Spanaway, WA Husband Confesses to Killing Wife & Daughter, Before Attempting to Kill Self

gLi3R.St

Dean Holmes in Spanaway, WA turned himself in this past Wednesday admitting that Tuesday night he had shot his wife multiple times while she slept. He then woke up his 11 year old daughter & her friend who was sleeping over. After dropping off the friend at her home, he then drove back toward his home while his daughter fell asleep in the back seat of the car. At that point he stopped the car, got out & through the back window shot his daughter multiple times. He then drove through a McDonalds for breakfast with his daughter’s body still in the back seat. After returning home he placed his daughter’s body next to her mother in bed & attempted to shoot himself. When he could not pull the trigger he drove to the police department & turned himself in.

Here is the comment I posted on this article in response to a friend of the family who had stated she could not understand because Dean appeared to love his wife & daughter so much.:

“Washington state is loaded to the gills with antidepressants! Do you know what these drugs do? They cause you to act out your worst nightmare & that is called a REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD). Of those being diagnosed with RBD 86% are taking an antidepressant. And of those suffering RBD 80% hurt themselves or someone else. If Dean seemed to really love his wife & daughter this would have been his worst nightmare. Someone had better start asking about meds! (By the way I was the expert in comedian Phil Hartman’s murder/suicide & their wrongful death suit has been settled by the makers of Zoloft.)”
