CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta (Neurologist) Weighs In On School Shootings & Antidepressants


Dr. Sanjay Gupta is an American neurosurgeon who serves as associate chief of  neurosurgery at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia and as assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Emory University School of Medicine.

He is also a media personality on health-related issues, and best known as CNN’s multiple Emmy Award-winning chief medical correspondent, hosting the network’s weekend health program Sanjay Gupta, M.D., and makes frequent appearances.

And he is one of the finest physicians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Besides that he loves the title of my  book on antidepressants and all aspects of serotonin, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? As the book examines the research to learn if these drugs are the panacea (cure all) the drug manufactures’ marketing would have us believe as doctors hand them out or every ailment known to man , or are they a Pandora’s Box that once opened unleashing all i’s terrible plagues could never be contained again? From the story of Pandora’s Box: “All at once every evil and spiteful thing flew out like a swarm of insects infesting the Earth with pain and sorrow…t:-) hanks to Pandora life on Earth was never quite so joyful ever again.”)

Dr. Gupta as a neurologist and a professor of neurosurgery certainly would understand more about the brain & brain function than most doctors would. With that in mind LISTEN now as Dr. Sanjay Gupta speaks out about the connection between school shootings and antidepressants after the Sandy Hook school shooting….

SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: The Evidence Antidepressants Are The Cause

Because so many are posting our database of cases of school shootings on Facebook with no explanation of the antidepressant connection, I thought I should post it here on our website as a blog so that it is easier to share with others especially with this latest school shooting in Florida and when yet another school violence episode erupts so they too will have this information to share and educate others about the involvement of antidepressants in school shootings.

President Trump’s Official Statement on Florida Shooting:

My Response: THIS IS NOT A GUN ISSUE AND IT IS NOT A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE! IT IS A DRUG ISSUE – PRESCRIPTION DRUG ISSUE!!! I have worked these cases as an expert for three decades and the common denominator in them all is the use of an antidepressant – drugs that work very similarly to PCP!

PCP & LSD produce hallucinations by mimicking serotonin. And how do antidepressants work? They are designed to gradually increase serotonin so you get a gradual emerging of hallucinations or psychosis. In that way it appears that the patient is going crazy rather than the drug producing the effect thereby distancing the cause and effect and avoiding personal injury lawsuits.

Creative? It sure was! Thankfully if we can get them into court we have been able to show the evidence clearly with even their own experts testifying that what we should expect from the way these drugs act upon the brain is impulsive murder and suicide! The science is clear as a bell! But no one is hearing that because there is too much money being made on these drugs.


Shockingly Prophetic 1999 Pharmacist Comment on Antidepressants & School Shootings in 2019

In about 1999 I was contacted by a pharmacist who said the nicest woman in town had come regularly to get her prescription of Prozac from him until she went to prison for killing her husband. This was one message I received from him that I think the whole world needs to hear……

“The symptoms I see in patients who use/abuse serotonergic drugs of any form…could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (over-confidence in one’s own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abuser’s life, coldness and lack of humanity). I feel that in twenty years or less we will be confronted not with one Hitler but with thousands or millions… numbers so great that we will be forced to interact with their distorted thinking on a daily basis. (Littleton, CO., Riverton,KS., Jonesboro, AR., eventually little Hitlers in every town in America will grow up into BIG HITLERS) It is happening right now. The most insidious factor about long-term serotonin abuse is that it enhances the individual’s persona to the point that they are able to manipulate others into their way of thinking just as Hitler did. This causes the distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and loss of morality to spread like a contagion to otherwise normal people who have not even been exposed to the drugs. Those on the drugs are converted by the pharmacologic/physiologic processes into sociopathic demagogues.

“Do you have any comments on these thoughts, Ann? Please respond. Tell me we are not the only ones who see what is happening to our world!”

In Answer to: “Where do these school shooters come from? Broken homes?”

The Question: “Where do these school shooters come from? Broken homes?”

My answer: No! They come from their local doctor’s office after they have been given drugs very similar in action to a slow fuse version of PCP (Angel Dust) or LSD.


The Only School Shooter to Ever Speak Out

to Answer the Question, WHY?

If you watch the video below of the only school shooter to ever speak out about what happened to him while his father sits with him supporting him, you will see no broken home, no previous problems with behavior. This was a wonderful family on a farm in western Washington state with a shy 16 year old boy preparing to finish his Eagle Scout soon and then leave on a two year mission for the LDS Church. His shyness was the reason a doctor prescribed Paxil for him.

Columbine Survivor, Mark Taylor Testimony Before the FDA

 News Report: School Shooter and Victim Join Forces

It is NOT mental illness. It is NOT guns, or any

other type of weapon, that fuels the violence…

It is not mental illness. It is not guns, but rather drugs we are calling “medications” which have suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects! And I make that statement after being called as a court expert on these shootings since 1992 and spending 25 years tracking and documenting the shootings. This is the only possible cause that actually admits it can cause this. A gun does not start shooting on its own, but these drugs list homicidal ideation and suicidal ideation as a side effect. Ideation is constant ruminating obsessive and compulsive thoughts of killing along with the same thoughts of various methods of killing…thoughts compulsive enough to lead to action!

From several of the posts on these school shootings on our main web site at I give you the following evidence to prove it is the drugs!

Understanding This Serotonin Nightmare

REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) – 86% Antidepressant-Induced

REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) is a condition during which, one lacks to normal paralysis during sleep thus allowing one to act out their worst nightmare in a dream state. (Corey’s case above is a perfect example of this) It is also known that 80% of those going into the REM Sleep Disorder hurt themselves or someone else, including both murder and suicide. Yet how many are aware that 86% of those being diagnosed with this most deadly of all sleep disorders have been found to currently be taking an antidepressant?  We do have a Facebook group on this deadly sleep disorder…

No automatic alt text available.

To date no research has been done to show how often this happens in antidepressant withdrawal even though RBD has long been known to be a drug withdrawal state. It should be expected to be far higher in withdrawal and yet we already have 86% involving patients currently taking these drugs.

Here is an interesting article on the REM Sleep Disorder:

Kauffman Study on antidepressants and violence:

“Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Drugs: More Risks Than Benefits”…/kauffman-ssri-study/1



NOTE: For those of you who follow my work you will notice all of the obvious medication side effects and keep in mind that  63% of autistic children are prescribed antidepressants

…He is currently on suicide watch.

…He heard voices telling him what to do in the shooting (hallucinating).

…He was adopted along with his brother and it appears he was possibly suffering from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome  or had been exposed to drugs in the womb.

…He was depressed and in therapy after his mother’s sudden death from the flu in November…

According to the judge in the hearing on the Division of Family Services record held on Monday after the shooting on Valentine’s Day  this young man  was being medicated  for depression , autism ,  and ADHD .  It appears this young shooter had been drugged with these drugs for years and most likely either got an increase in dose in November when his mother died or went off the drugs cold turkey because his mother was not there to force him to take his pills. either way  the same  resulting scenario  could be expected because the FDA has warned  that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing the dose can produce suicide, hostility,  or psychosis.  And here is neurologist, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, of CNN confirming that warning…

This was the same scenario with Eric Harris at Columbine. His dose of antidepressant was increased just two months before the shooting even though when first given one of these drugs (Zoloft) within 3 weeks Eric was reporting that he was having homicidal ideation (a listed side effect which is an obsession with killing). So they gave him a different SSRI antidepressant! Why doctors seem to think that they are going to achieve a different outcome if they spell the name of a drug differently even though they work exactly the same is beyond me!

“The 19-year-old who is accused of killing 17 people and injuring dozens more when he opened fire on a South Florida high school Wednesday afternoon told investigators that he heard voices in his head, giving him instructions on what to do to conduct the attack, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

“The voices were described as “demons” by law enforcement sources.

“Those who knew suspect Nikolas Cruz described him as a troubled teen who was largely alone in the world. An attorney for the family who had taken Cruz in after his adoptive mother died said he was “depressed” following her death but had been going to therapy, while a student who participated in Junior ROTC with Cruz described him as a “psycho” who was enthusiastic about weapons.”

Family reported he has been “troubled” for years and was in therapy & thought to be on medication. Both parents are dead, his father died when he was four & his mother died suddenly in November of the flu…

“A relative said Cruz, who was adopted at birth along with his biological younger brother by an older couple, has had a hard few years. His father died when Cruz was much younger and his mother died last year, she said.

“I know he did have some issues, and he may have been taking medication,” said Cruz’s aunt, Barbara Kumbatovich, whose sister died in November. “He did have some kind of emotional difficulties.”

He had obsession with guns, killed small animals, was on medication according to his aunt.

“Roger Cruz died over a decade ago and Lynda struggled with the boys, said Barbara Kumbatovich, a former sister-in-law. “She did the best she could. “They were adopted and had some emotional issues,” she said.

“Kumbatovich said she believed Nikolas Cruz was on medication to deal with his emotional fragility. “She was struggling with Nikolas the last couple years,” she said.

“After his mother died, Cruz moved in with a friend, whose family in Broward took him in and even gave him own bedroom. He worked at a dollar store and went to a school for at-risk youth, said Fort Lauderdale attorney Jim Lewis, who is representing the family.

“Cruz had his AR-15, but the family asked that gun remain locked up in a cabinet, Lewis said. On Wednesday morning, Cruz slept in and gave only a cryptic reason why.”

Stop Whatever You Are Doing & Watch This!!!!!

If Robert Kennedy, Jr has not been one of your heroes in life before this he will be by the time you watch the first half hour of this interview all politics aside! And I am not kidding! This is one of the most powerful interviews I have heard in 3 decades on the subject of corruption in Pharmaceuticals!
You have never heard a better, more thorough expose on …..
….pharmaceutical corruption, 
….the vested interests of the CDC,
….the vested interests of theFDA
….the vested interests of the media
….to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars
….the Twisted science behind it all
All of which produces the massive amounts of iatrogenic disorders …. thanks to so many dangerous pharmaceutical drugs of all kinds that are supposed to be helping us and instead are killing us in unprecedented numbers! And learn how it’s legally being kept from us!

“People have asked me, “why are you doing this?“ This isn’t what I wanted to do. But I had a choice. I could put my head down and walk away from it – pretending I didn’t see it. Or, I could get involved and take the risk of doing that. And I have taken those risks and I have endured what came along with it, but I have endured it happily. Because I believe that if I can spare one kid from getting this injury – from that pain….  God gave these children lives, and these companies are stealing that from them. That is a crime. That is assault and battery. It’s child abuse. In some cases it’s even worse. I feel like I didn’t have any choice about getting involved with this fight. And once I got involved with it,  – I’m going to fight it until the end. And I’m not going to stand down. And I’m not going to give up. And I’m going to fight for you – and I’m going to fight for your children.”….. ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR.

What Source of Omega 3 Oil???
In listening to the information he is sharing of particular interest to all of you who are using fish oil to obtain your omega-3 oils please listen to what he has to say in this first half hour about the extreme contamination of all fish! This is something I have warned about for decades! Getting Omega 3 oils from flax seed is just as good, and obviously better considering the contamination, than the fish oil! Remember that 2000 scientist worldwide got together in the year 2000 warn us of the contamination via prescription drugs in the water supply, and antidepressants in particular, which was strong enough to cause male fish to be born with ovaries.
Click This Link to Watch Now….
The following is the comment about this which I posted on their page…

Wow!!!! Wow!!!! Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!!! Could not stop watching from the minute it began!!!!

And the minute Robert Kennedy started talking about them defending ethyl mercury by saying it was leaving the bloodstream in only a week I knew immediately that was because it was going straight to the brain and lodging in brain tissue! And the reason I knew is because in my area of expertise I had learned years ago that antidepressants, which increase the rate of autism by 3 – 4 times higher than average when the mothers take them during pregnancy thus exposing the developing brain of the fetus, do the exact same thing at extremely high rates while patients are being told the drugs have flushed out of their system! All these toxic substances are lodging in brain tissue and having effects for years and years and years down the road!

And tell Del that I could have told him the media got bought out by Pharma a LONG time ago! Doing an anti-Pharma show is the “kiss of death” for any show! Leeza Gibbons had a great investigative piece with me in 1999 on mothers on antidepressants killing their children and her show was history only three months later! Hers was only one example of many more. Independent media is our only hope.

Animals Force-fed Antidepressants

Beyond those animals being tortured in Pharma laboratories are those animals who have no choice freely prescribed prescription drugs at astronomical rates! Below is the comment on this video I posted a few days ago on the prescribing of antidepressants to animal’s. Most remain unaware that animals are prescribed far more drugs than humans. (Something those of you continuing to eat meat while working to regain your health and detox after the use of antidepressants need to ponder.)
“Before I make my comment allow me to state that I have specialized in the drugs this poor dog is being given and testifying in court cases against the drugs both to the FDA and in criminal cases involving these drugs for almost three decades. I have also been working to get them off the market with the doctor whose research was used to make them possible, yet came out against them in 1997 calling the drugs “monsters” and saying she wished she had never had anything to do with their development. I have also done media interviews with the doctor who admittedly BRIBED the approval of these drugs when he worked for Pharma who paid to bribe that approval! He too (You can find all that documentation on our website at
“Was this dog abused?! Whatever the abuse was, the abuse she is suffering now from that “behavioral vet” has to be far worse than anything she may have ever had before! Putting her on multiple medications (call them what they really are – drugs!) is little different than confining her to Auschwitz!!! The abuse is now mental and emotional, on top of physical, as she goes in and out of withdrawal from powerful mind altering drugs as with this vet switching her meds – a withdrawal humans report is at least 10 times worse than heroin withdrawal!!!
“Poor innocent thing! As if she did not suffer enough abuse already! Now if someone will VERY GRADUALLY, VERY, VERY GRADUALLY (taking months, not days or weeks after a year of being drugged wean her safely down off those drugs she will begin to go outside, get rid of her anxiety (since all these drugs CAUSE or increase anxiety), not cure it, and she will become a happy, healthy, normal dog! Our website at has an MP3 “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!) on how to wean safely & how to calculate how long someone needs to take to do so safely.
“With these drugs producing  a side effect like biting…these drugs could get her euthanized. Biting is common in humans on the drugs so how much greater a reaction would it be for a dog? Years ago the President of France was sent to the hospital after being badly bitten by his pet poodle on Prozac.
“And to show you how bad it can really get another early case involving Prozac was that of a respected Stanford professor who nearly killed her mother by taking over 20 bites out of her and answering the door for police with dried blood down her face and all down the front of her after only two weeks on Prozac!
“All antidepressants and benzodiazepines work the same upon serotonin to produce this aggressive effect. Remember Travis the TV star chimp suffering from Lymes Disease and put on Xanax? The well trained family pet went everywhere with his owners but after recently being prescribed Xanax bit off a woman’s hands and a large portion of her face before being killed by police in a effort to stop him! (2009/02/17/chimpanzee-attacks-mauls-connecticut-woman-before-being-killed-by-police.html)
“Here is a website database with about 5000 similar cases including most all school shootings: www.SSRIstories.NET. Please take a look at that list and then ask yourself how many times we as a society need to stick our hand in fire in order to realize it burns?! These drugs are a death sentence physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Just two weeks ago one of the most extensive studies I have seen demonstrated that antidepressants increase one’enhances of death by 33% and increase the rate of heart attack and stroke by 14%.
“I have seen so many humans suffer for years  due to the adverse effects of these  drugs  that the thought  of a poor helpless animal going through that kind of torture due to forced drugging just turns my stomach! If I were her I would be taking a chunk out of that “behavioral veterinarian”! Maybe someone in one of our many groups who are all trying to somehow find a way to get off of these drugs and put their life back together could take her and they could go through withdrawal together as a support system for each other. What a sad, sad state of affairs for our world!”

STUDY: Antidepressants Associated With Significantly Elevated Risk Of Death, Strokes & Heart Attacks

For anyone who has read my book with all the information on the damaging physical effects of elevated serotonin along with the research ordered by Eli Lilly on Prozac demonstrating that antidepressants drastically increase the level of cortisol, known as the “death hormone” will not be surprised by the results of this study. They will only be surprised, as am I, that it would take over two decades for the damaging results of this effect to hit mainstream news especially when Lilly’s own research demonstrated back then that a dose as low as 30mg of Prozac doubled the level of cortisol with only one single dose!


In Spite of This Alarming Information Please Heed This Warning

Running Across Top of Since 1995

Antidepressant Users Have 33% Higher Risk of Death

And 14% Higher Risk of Stroke or Heart Attack

The results of this new study out just days ago, on September 14, 2017, found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users and they also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks! (Please note that a study involving “hundreds of thousands” is an absolutely massive number for a research study to include.) “The researchers reviewed studies involving hundreds of thousands of people and found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users. Antidepressant users also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks. The findings were published today in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.”


Serotonin Toxicity – Serotonin Syndrome

Anyone familiar with the mode of death produced by too much serotonin, a toxic condition known as Serotonin Syndrome, should be aware that the high levels of serotonin, which accumulate from the Serotonin Reuptake Inhibition process, produce death by shutting down multiple major organs. Keeping that in mind please look at this quote about this research: “It’s widely known that brain serotonin affects mood, and that most commonly used antidepressant treatment for depression blocks the absorption of serotonin by neurons. It is less widely known, though, that all the major organs of the body—the heart, kidneys, lungs, liver—use serotonin from the bloodstream. Antidepressants [Along with any other drug that has Serotonin Reuptake Inhibiting Properties] block the absorption of serotonin in these organs as well, and the researchers warn that antidepressants could increase the risk of death by preventing multiple organs from functioning properly.”

Antidepressants associated with significantly elevated risk of death, researchers find

Antidepressant medications, most commonly prescribed to reduce depression and anxiety, increase the risk of death, according to new findings by a McMaster-led team of researchers.

It’s widely known that brain serotonin affects mood, and that most commonly used antidepressant treatment for depression blocks the absorption of serotonin by neurons. It is less widely known, though, that all the major organs of the body—the heart, kidneys, lungs, liver—use serotonin from the bloodstream.

Antidepressants block the absorption of serotonin in these organs as well, and the researchers warn that antidepressants could increase the risk of death by preventing multiple organs from functioning properly.

The researchers reviewed studies involving hundreds of thousands of people and found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users. Antidepressant users also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks. The findings were published today in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.

“We are very concerned by these results. They suggest that we shouldn’t be taking antidepressant drugs without understanding precisely how they interact with the body,” says author Paul Andrews, an associate professor at McMaster University who led the research team.

Taken by one in eight adult Americans, antidepressants are among the most frequently used medications. They are often prescribed by family doctors without a formal diagnosis of depression, on the assumption they are safe. Since depression itself can be deadly—people with depression are at an increased risk of suicide, stroke and heart attack—many physicians think that antidepressants could save lives by reducing depressive symptoms.

However, McMaster researcher and co-author Marta Maslej, says, “Our findings are important because they undermine this assumption. I think people would be much less willing to take these drugs if they were aware how little is known about their impact outside of the brain, and that what we do know points to an increased risk of death.”

Benoit Mulsant, a psychiatrist at the University of Toronto who was also involved in the study, says the findings point to the need for more research on how antidepressants actually do work.

“I prescribe antidepressants even though I do not know if they are more harmful than helpful in the long-term. I am worried that in some patients they could be, and psychiatrists in 50 years will wonder why we did not do more to find out,” Mulsant says.

Interestingly, the news about antidepressants is not all bad. The researchers found that antidepressants are not harmful for people with cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. This makes sense since these antidepressants have blood-thinning effects that are useful in treating such disorders. Unfortunately, this also means that for most people who are in otherwise good cardiovascular health, antidepressants tend to be harmful.

ATTENTION UTAH: Meet Me SLC Friday Morning Meeting on Youth Suicide

Maiya, age 6, on Zoloft cries, ‘Mummy I want to go with the angels now.’

Seth, age 5, on Paxil begs, “Daddy Please Kill Me! I Cannot Take This Anymore!

Utah has the highest rate of youth suicide in the world. It is the leading cause of death in youth in Utah where they are losing over 600 children per year!! Never yet that I am aware of in tracking this have antidepressants been discussed as the CAUSE of the high rate of suicide. They are only encouraged as the cure for suicide. Ironic in light of the FDA Black Box Warning issued in 2004 indicating a doubling of suicidal ideation by antidepressants when given to children! PLEASE those of you in Utah join me in standing up for this cause tomorrow morning or I will go alone as I have so often in the past. Someone has to speak up for this atrocity! If we can wake up Utah where the problem is the worst perhaps we can wake up the world! You will find me under the signs that say “Prevent Youth Suicide, Ban Antidepressants!”

Thanks to my ex-Senator Charles Grassley we learned that NAMI (the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) were funded 81% by Pharma explaining why their only solution for mental illness is medication. The head of NAMI was so embarrassed by the disclosure that he stepped down. Now there are other groups like the ones behind this gathering. How much are they getting from Pharma to do the same thing? As I searched through their website it was full of suggestions of medicating children with antidepressants. THIS NEEDS TO END!!!!!!! The announcement for this event follows:

“After learning about the statistics of suicide in this state, I decided it was time for us to use our voice to shine a light on this growing health crisis. This event is not about doom and gloom. This event is about starting a conversation no one wants to have and sharing the unbelievable and free resources that are available to anyone in despair. This broadcast is about hope.” – Kayvon Motiee, President, Broadway Media

X96 and Broadway Media invites their media peers, clients and partners, and members of the community who would like to attend, to join them on-site the morning of September 15th at 50 West Café, to take part in this discussion and learn how to take action, and raise awareness about suicide prevention. X96 and Broadway Media would like to implore the community for their support in this endeavor. As this crisis continues to take the lives of Utahn’s and their loved ones, it is time to move past the fear and speak out about this growing public health issue, and open a safe forum for support, information and local resources.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, established in 1987, is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. As a critical resource in the community, the AFSP provides funding for scientific research, education to the public about mental health and suicide prevention, and support and aid for those affected by suicide.

Hurricane Alert & Prescription Medication Concerns

One of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded has caused damage on several islands, including Barbuda, Anguilla and St. Martin



For years I have warned about the issues that could arise due to any type of emergency that could lead to patients not being able to get their medications for a period thus being forced into abrupt withdrawal. When the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose, whether increasing or decreasing the dose can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis this is a serious concern. And when you know how many pharmaceutical company manufacturing plants are based in Puerto Rico, North Carolina and New Jersey which may all be in the wake of this storm it could cause even some longer term problems with availability.



Florida officials began ordering evacuations as Hurricane Irma intensifies to a Category 5 storm. Anyone in the target zone of Irma please be safe and don’t forget your medical directives and medication. See if it’s possible to get early refills due to the storm. People were forced into cold turkey withdrawal in recent hurricanes from their prescription medications because they didn’t anticipate the damage and the difficulties in getting refills after the storms.

Latest Alert from Florida: The state of Florida has ordered all prescriptions to be refilled even if it is not time yet. Basically they said “get all your prescriptions now because the pharmacies have been told to fill them, then get out of harm’s way.”



(1) In the event a pharmacist receives a request for a prescription refill and the pharmacist is unable to readily obtain refill authorization from the prescriber, the pharmacist may dispense:
(a) A one-time emergency refill of up to a 72-hour supply of the prescribed medication; or
(b) A one-time emergency refill of one vial of insulin to treat diabetes mellitus.
(2) If the Governor issues an emergency order or proclamation of a state of emergency, the pharmacist may dispense up to a 30-day supply in the areas or counties affected by the order or proclamation, provided that:
(a) The prescription is not for a medicinal drug listed in Schedule II appearing in chapter 893.
(b) The medication is essential to the maintenance of life or to the continuation of therapy in a chronic condition.
(c) In the pharmacist’s professional judgment, the interruption of therapy might reasonably produce undesirable health consequences or may cause physical or mental discomfort.

Neurontin and Lyrica are a Death Sentence for New Brain Synapses

A shocking study shows that these two drugs block the formation of new brain synapses1, drastically reducing the potential for rejuvenating brain plasticity – meaning that these drugs will cause brain decline that apparently robs one of the ability to rebuild. The study demonstrating this type of brain damage with these two drugs came out in 2009 but apparently the media has been very lax in getting any of this information to the public – most likely because they do not want to jeopardize their advertising income from this company.
But the patients are not the only ones not getting this information because the doctors are apparently clueless as well. I say that because first our Facebook group for these two drugs “Neurontin (Gabapentin) & Lyrica (Pregabalin) Should Be Illegal” is growing so quickly. Then this past Spring my brother working on some things in the backyard pulled a muscle in his back. I was shocked to learn that he had gone to the doctor for that and the doctor gave him a prescription for Neurontin!
When I asked when he had started having seizures that he would need an anti-seizure medication for he said, “What?!”
I had to explain to him that Neurontin is an anti-seizure medication and that the company had received two huge fines, totaling billions, from the FDA for prescribing it for anything else. And in 2010 they were even found guilty of RICO, yes racketeering, for encouraging doctors to prescribe this drug off label – for things it is not approved for-like pulling a muscle in your back! Then I shared with him the information in this study indicating the brain damage from the drug at which point he understandably decided not to take the drug.
Although I have included the full article on this below this is the link to the article which you need to follow to find the full research study if you want to take it to your doctor to educate him:
Now my question is why on earth has the FDA not pulled these drugs from the market in light of this study? I ask that because before this study the worst I had seen in producing brain damage were the diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux which were pulled from the market due to the brain damage they produced … even though the media convinced the world those drugs were pulled because of the heart and lung damage. It was the brain damage the FDA was concerned about and had required studies from the maker to prove its safety. Something they had not yet done before Dr. Una Mc Cann at NIH put out a study showing the most horrific brain damage. Those drugs were pulled only days later.

Neurontin and Lyrica are a Death Sentence for New Brain Synapses

Neurontin and Lyrica are a Death Sentence for New Brain Synapses

Neurontin and its newer more potent version, Lyrica, are widely used for off-label indications that are an outright flagrant danger to the public. These blockbuster drugs were approved for use even though the FDA had no idea what they actually did in the brain. A shocking new study shows that they block the formation of new brain synapses1, drastically reducing the potential for rejuvenating brain plasticity – meaning that these drugs will cause brain decline faster than any substance known to mankind.

The problem of these drugs is compounded by their flagrant illegal marketing. Neurontin was approved by the FDA for epilepsy back in 1994. The drug underwent massive illegal off-label promotion that cost Warner-Lambert 430 million dollars (the very first big fine for off-label promotion). The drug is now owned by Pfizer. Pfizer also owns Lyrica, a super-potent version of Neurontin. It has been approved by the FDA for various types of pain and fibromyalgia. Lyrica is one of four drugs which a subsidiary of Pfizer illegally marketed, resulting in a $2.3 billion settlement against Pfizer.

Even though the marketing of these drugs has been heavily fined, they continue to rack up billions in sales from the off-label uses. Doctors use them for all manner of nerve issues because they are good at suppressing symptoms. However, such uses can no longer be justified because the actual mechanism of the drugs is finally understood and they are creating a significant long-term reduction in nerve health.

The researchers in the above study try to downplay the serious nature of the drugs by saying “adult neurons don’t form many new synapses.” That is simply not true. The new science is showing that brain health during aging relies on the formation of new synapses. Even these researchers managed to question the common use of these medications in pregnant women. How is a fetus supposed to make new nerve cells when the mother is taking a drug that blocks them?

These are the kind of situations the FDA should be all over. As usual, the FDA is sitting around pondering a suicide warning for Lyrica while its off-label uses include bi-polar disorder and migraine headaches. The FDA is likely to twiddle its thumbs for the next decade on the brain damage issue. Consumer beware.

Two School Shootings in the News on Columbine’s 18th Anniversary

Today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, marks the 18th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and marks the day after Barry Loukitis, in one of the first school shootings in this country, was once again given 189 years for killing a teacher and two classmates in Moses Lake, WA while no mention of these drugs and the role they played in that case has ever been mentioned in his defense! And while the real guilty parties in these school shootings continue to live in plush luxury with no repercussions whatsoever to this day!

The 12 students listed below and one teacher, William “Dave” Sanders, 47, were killed during the attack on the morning of April 20, 1999. And Eric Harris and Dylan Kleebold lost their lives in either a double suicide or a murder/suicide after the attack. Today we remember all the lives that were lost that day as well as those were severely injured and those whose lives were changed forever when Eric and Dylan reacted to their antidepressants:

The day this happened I was on the phone with Ruben Ortega, Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, discussing with him some local tragedies to help him to understand the impact of these drugs upon the community he served and the public as a whole. The Salt Lake Family History Library shooting had recently happened with an elderly Russian man killing two before being shot. That elderly Russian man had an experience very similar to the German Wings pilot who two years ago took a plane with 150 to their deaths as he flew it into a mountain side in the Alps. This elderly Russian man noticed that he was losing his eyesight as a result of his antidepressant so he just stopped taking it with NO IDEA what that can cause! (If you see the REM Sleep Disorder listed in the Evidence section on School Shootings you will see the reaction he had that morning on his daily walk past the Family History Library as he opened fire killing one of my dear friends, Don Thomas, whom I had warned over and over again about the danger he was in there as the Family History Library security guard.) As Chief Ortega learned more and more about how these drugs work and how they can produce psychosis and violence and are so very similar in action to a slow fuse LSD or PCP he mentioned that was the case in the recent KSL shooting as well. The woman who came into that building shooting and killing a woman who worked there and her unborn child was also on one of these drugs. He then asked me, “Do you think what is going on right now in that school shooting in Littleton, CO could be caused by these drugs as well?” I replied that I did not generally see a case where two people go off the deep end on these drugs at the same time, but if they commit suicide too, you can bet it is one of these cases.” I was to later learn that about the same time I was making that statement to Chief Ortega is when Eric and Dylan lost their lives to the suicidal ideation we now have warnings are doubled for those under the age of 25 who take these drugs.

Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine

Please watch Mark Taylor’s Fight For Columbine to see how this tragedy has never gone away for Mark and has only gotten worse for him after he filed suit against the antidepressant maker of Luvox . Luvox is the antidepressant Eric Harris was taking when he shot Mark. And before anyone starts in on we don’t have any evidence of Dylan being on anything you need to know  that a girlfriend of Dylan’s came to Mark Taylor’s mother and then spoke with me about trying to help Dylan come off his Zoloft and Paxil (the same drug found guilty in the suicide of one of the nations’ leading attorneys.
