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

1/17/2001 – Upcoming Radio Show & New Site for ICFDA

Mark Miller has spent some long hours developing a whole new look for our
website. He has really done a wonderful job and I want you all to see it. So if
you have not had an opportunity lately to take a look I invite you to check out
the site at www.drugawareness.org The best “Thank you” you can give Mark, or any
of us who are dedicated to bringing you this information, is to pass the web
address out to all you know so that they too can gather the information they
need to save a loved one’s life.

And this coming Sunday (or Monday, depending on what part of the country you are
in) I will the be guest on Art Bell’s Coast to Coast radio program. Ian Punnett
will be the host of the show so it should be good. He and I did a show together
a couple of weeks ago and he is an incredible interviewer. The interview will go
for three hours beginning at 11:00 PM Pacific Time. This is a national program
and is literally heard from coast to coast. To find a station in your area to
listen in or to listen online just go to www.artbell.com. (BTW if you have read
my book, you know that I do not encourage anyone to be awake during those hours
so get a tape ready to record the show and go to bed! 🙂 )
