ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Assault of an officer: Australia

Note from Ann Blake-Tracy: This sounds too familiar to the Donald Schell case in
Wyoming that went to trial after he took Paxil for two days and then shot
and killed his wife, daughter, infant granddaughter and himself. The jury
ruled in that case that the two antidepressants were the main cause of that
tragic murder/suicide.

Cases like this immediately make me wonder about the P450 2D6 liver enzyme
that is never tested for in patients before giving them an SSRI. There are
about 7 – 10% of the population who lack that liver enzyme because
genetically they did not inherit it. Without the enzyme you cannot metabolize an
antidepressant and you hit toxic levels rapidly.

Paragraph four reads: "Lawyer Ian Pilgrim said that Warren intended to
plead guilty and had been under significant personal and financial stress. He
had started taking anti-depressants two days before the incident, Mr Pil
grim said."

A MAN who allegedly bashed a female police officer with a pick handle
after she went to his home to attend a domestic dispute was released on bail
yesterday.

Gregory Paul Warren, 38, was charged with assault occasioning bodily harm
while armed and serious assault after allegedly attacking two officers at
Urraween on Sunday afternoon.

He was subdued using capsicum spray.

Lawyer Ian Pilgrim said that Warren intended to plead guilty and had been
under significant personal and financial stress. He had started taking
anti-depressants two days before the incident, Mr Pilgrim said.

Prosecutor Sergeant Kathryn Stagoll opposed bail because of Warren’s
unpredictability and volatility. â
