CYMBALTA: Canadian Man in Bathrobe Kills One, Wounds One At Election Celebration

Richard Bain Arrest

“It’s totally different from my character. All my life I worked and helped other people.”

Please read at least this part of this article to see how this poor man became so manic on Cymbalta. Why did no one catch such blatantly obvious manic behavior, indicating a serious toxic reaction to this drug, BEFORE this fatal tragedy?!! If it was subtle hypomanic behavior that would be one thing but this is clearly extreme manic behavior with the wild spending, wild promiscuous behavior, cravings for alcohol, etc. For more information on this antidepressant side effect see my 2006 presentation to the FDA, my DVD “Bipolar, Are You Misdiagnosed Due to the Use of or Abrupt Discontinuation of an Antidepressant? and come to our Facebook group Antidepressant-Induced Bipolar and Schizophrenia:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1605446559734283/

BLAMES ANTIDEPRESSANT CYMBALTA

“Richard Bain claimed that he was a responsible, hard-working, caring person but his character changed after taking the anti-depressant Cymbalta in 2009.

“He said he broke off a 20-year relationship with his girlfriend and began visiting strip bars every night, hiring prostitutes and quickly burning through an inheritance and savings of $900,000.

“He told the court he spent a lot of money on “limousines, the best of wine, champagne, strippers.”

“With Cymbalta, you don’t think correctly,” he testified later. “I had all the energy in the world. Things come to my mind and I do it. You don’t think things out. It makes you not responsible.”

“He said video footage of him at the shooting scene wearing a blue bathrobe and ski mask, yelling “The English are waking up,” as police led him away, was unrecognizable. “It’s totally different from my character. All my life I worked and helped other people,” he said. Asked what could explain the change, he said: “To me it was the medications.”

“Bain testified that he had no memory of opening fire outside the celebrations. As the defence opened at his trial for the first-degree murder of lighting technician Denis Blanchette and the attempted murder of stagehand David Courage….

“On Sept. 4, 2012, provincial election day, Bain testified that he drove to Montreal to visit his sister-in-law in hospital and he became upset because she was suffering while she waited for an operation. As he was leaving at around 6:30 p.m., he asked his brother where the Metropolis concert hall was, because he heard that the PQ election-night party would be there. He said he decided to take a look out of curiosity, and he drove by it in his GMC Yukon three times before leaving. That, he told the jury, is where his memory of the day ends. He said his sister-in-law’s suffering affected him deeply.

AN ADDITIONAL EIGHT PILLS CONSUMED BEFORE SHOOTING?!!!

“My depression that day came over me like a wave,” he testified. He said that in addition to his regular dose of one 60 mg Cymbalta capsule taken in the morning, he downed at least eight more after leaving the hospital.

“Shown video footage of his vehicle arriving behind the Metropolis shortly before midnight, of a figure leaving the vehicle and approaching the concert hall’s rear entrance and of his subsequent arrest as police pinned him to the ground, he said he had no memory of the events.”

This reminds me so much of one of the very first cases I worked on in the early 90’s. A teen in Florida living with a couple of friends had become depressed and knew that one of his friends had a bottle of Zoloft sitting on top of the fridge she had decided she did not want to take. He knew it was for depression so he took one to see if it would help. When he did not feel less depressed after 15 minutes he took another, and after 15 more minutes he took another.

After taking eight pills he has no memory of what happened. But the official police record shows that he met a homeless man and stabbed him 100 times with a screwdriver. Last I knew he was given a sentence of life in prison for murder.

It is just so sad that such dangerous drugs are prescribed so freely and with so little concern and are sitting around people’s homes where anyone has access to them with little to no warning of how deadly they can be!!!

BIPOLAR DISORDER: 50 DEAD, 53 WOUNDED IN WORST MASS SHOOTING IN AMERICA

WHERE ARE YOU FDA?!!!

WHY IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO HAVE “MEDICATIONS” ON THE MARKET WITH

HOMICIDAL/SUICIDAL IDEATIONS (COMPULSIONS) & PSYCHOSIS AS SIDE EFFECTS?!!

MY FACEBOOK POST FROM THIS MORNING: Orlando again?! Yet another antidepressant-induced mass killing? DO NOT let any mention of a possible terrorist attack keep you from asking questions. That seems to.be a great diversion tactic anymore. When you keep in mind several considerations you will see why I say that….

#1 The high number of antidepressant – induced cases of sexual preference changes. Serotonin is what determines sexual preference and I have additional new research to share with you on that besides the info from 2000 scientists back in 2000 who released the “canary in the coal mine” warning for mankind that the large amount of antidepressants in the water supply were causing male fish to be born with ovaries: http://www.alternet.org/speakeasy/martharosenberg/drug-store-your-tap-water-and-fish-prozac

Serotonin determines sexual preference: http://www.pnas.org/content/110/24/9968.abstract

Science Can Change The Sexual Orientations Of Micehttp://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/05/study-science-can-change-the-sexual-orientations-of-mice/276311/

[At that point this morning we had no information as to whether the shooter himself might be gay or the other possibility that on antidepressants he was suffering delusions that he might be gay due the the adverse effects of the medications and had become paranoid that he may be becoming gay lashing out because of that.]

#2 The large majority of mass shootings committed by those on antidepressants as documented in this database of cases:www.SSRIstories.NET

#3 The all too common tendency those beginning to go insane on antidepressants often tend to join all kinds of fringe groups

#4 The statement of the Taliban psychiatrist in an interview with an LA Times reporter who told his patients, while standing in an office surrounded by drug company promotional material on antidepressants, that swallowing antidepressants is “like swallowing a little piece of God!” Here is that full article from the LA Times: http://articles.latimes.com/2002/mar/11/news/mn-32224

LATEST REPORT FROM THE DAILY MAIL ON SHOOTER

Keep in mind as you read this that even though antidepressants are absolutely notorious for producing all of the side effects that are associated with the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder (which is actually best described as a sleep/seizure disorder, rather than what they call a mental disorder) few doctors treat the symptoms of what they call Bipolar Disorder without an antidepressant, often combined with an anti-seizure medication. So the mention of this shooter having symptoms of Bipolar Disorder is a very huge indication that he was taking an antidepressant known to cause this type of violence.

“Speaking to reporters on Sunday evening with her fiance beside her, Yusufiy [ex-wife] said she thought the shooting had ‘nothing to do’ with religion and had more to do with mental illness.

“Yusufiy, who said she did not agree with Mateen’s views, revealed her ex-husband was mentally unstable and had bipolar disorder, yet wanted to become a police officer and had applied to the police academy.”

‘After a few months he started to beat me,’ she said. ‘He was mentally unstable… he was obviously disturbed. I know he had a history of [taking] steroids.
‘I was with him for about four months, then my family rescued me….

“Yusufiy said that Mateen owned a gun during their marriage, was ‘short tempered’ and would express ‘hate towards things’. She would not reveal if he had any homophobic views.

“Following a brief romance, the pair tied the knot in March 2009 and moved into a two-bedroom home owned by Mateen’s family in Fort Pierce.

“At the start of their relationship, she told the Washington Post, he was not particularly religious and was not violent. But soon things changed.

‘That’s when I started worrying about my safety and he was abusing me physically very often and not allowing me to speak to my family and he kept me hostage from them,’ she said during her press conference….

“Despite his violence, she said there was no sign he would go on to be a mass murder.

The shooter apparently called 911 and pledged his allegiance to the leader of ISIS. My response as that came out was to me it sounded manic and suicidal. When has ISIS ever called 911 to announce something like that before an attack?

“The shooter’s father Seddique Mateen said that his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and thinks that may be related to the shooting.

“He added: ‘We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country.’

HOW OFTEN IS BIPOLAR TRIGGERED BY ANTIDEPRESSANTS?

These drugs are producing a massive amount of manic reactions leading many to falsely be labeled Bipolar. You can listen to me explain that to the FDA and the widespread problems it is causing in our society, people’s personal lives, and in families around the world. As I discuss the work of Dr. Malcomb Bowers at Yale and he found in 2000 that a quarter of a million per year were being diagnosed as antidepressant-induced Bipolar every year in America back then. He and his colleagues went on to stress that most doctors do not recognize the antidepressant as being the cause of the Bipolar and, therefore, do not report it as such. The general rule of thumb for figuring the real number of side effects not reported is that less than 10% are reported which would indicate a figure of 2 1/2 million people every year! Is it any wonder the numbers of those diagnosed Bipolar increased by 400%in young people just from 1996 to 2004?! And if those figures are correct what are those numbers now, a decade and a half later?!

ANN BLAKE-TRACY, UTAH LECTURE

Last August I spoke at the summit for the Independent American Party in Saint George, Utah and they have asked once again that I present at their Summit Thursday, July 2, in Orem, Utah. Some of the other speakers last August will also be speaking again at this summit: #1 My good friend Sheriff Richard Mack who joined us in testifying before the FDA in 2004 when we were able to get the Black Box Warning on all antidepressants #2 G Edward Griffin, author of Creature From Jeckyll Island, which if you have not yet read, you should. It will help you to understand much more about how and why we are caught up in this massive drug culture.

Anyone wishing to attend is welcome. Of course I will be addressing all of the latest news in this area as well as giving a brief overview of the underlying problems with these drugs we call antidepressants. As I will be presenting during the lunch break I do hope that everyone is able to keep their lunch down considering my subject. 🙂

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Le Anne Westover Testifies of Husband Del Shannon’s Prozac Suicide

Le Anne Westover - Dell Shannon

Le Anne Westover & Husband, Charles (Del Shannon)

Everyone needs to hear these testimonies presented to the FDA in September of 1991 on the subject antidepressants causing suicide and violence. The FDA chose to ignore these testimonies that day leading to many more deaths since. My dear friend featured here, Le Anne Westover, lost her husband Charles, also known as the popular singer Del Shannon, in only two weeks to a violent Prozac-induced suicide. His senseless death, along with so many others documented both in these testimonies and this database www.ssristories.NET should NEVER be forgotten!!!

Please listen to Le Anne’s testimony here:
https://youtu.be/FiF4Pd6rat8

The following is a transcript of LeAnne’s testimony to the FDA that day:

DR. CASEY: Next is Mrs. Del Shannon, please.

MS. SHANNON: Lee Ann Westover.

DR. CASEY: Excuse me, are you Mrs. Del Shannon?

MS. SHANNON: I am Mrs. Del Shannon, yes. I am the widow Del Shannon. My husband 1990. On the evening of of Charles Westover, also known as was given Prozac on January 24 of February 8, 1990, he killed himself. I am told his death was instantaneous, but I believe his death actually began the moment he took his first dose of Prozac.

Before Prozac, my husband was very involved with people, our family, and his work. He was very much in charge of his business. But within days after he started taking Prozac I noticed a personality change in him. He showed signs of restlessness, akathisia, agitation, pacing, and his appearance was very drawn. He developed severe insomnia, extreme fatigue, chills, racing heart, dry mouth, and upset stomach. His hands would shake uncontrollably at times.

This really alarmed him. I would ask him what was wrong and his only reply was, “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

At this time my husband’s career was better than ever. He was just finishing a new album and was at his utmost creative peak. Many good things were happening in his life.

On January 24, he saw a doctor for counseling, as changes were happening rapidly. Due to these changes, he went to a doctor because he was experiencing some stress. He was given Prozac. Two weeks later I found him dead in our home. He told me, when he came home from the doctor, that he was given a new drug, “It’s not even a drug, it’s a chemical, it’s very safe. It’s supposed to help me over the hump I’m in.” The drug was Prozac.

Charles was very much against suicide. He counseled people against suicide. To him, and I quote “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” I want you to know suicide was totally out of character for my husband.

There was no note. The day he died he had made appointments for afternoon and evening. He had booked future and no kiss goodbye.

On February 8, my daughter and I were going to the market. He asked for some vitamins and other items that he wanted from the market. He kissed me, smiled, and we said, “See you later.” There was absolutely no warning of suicide or anything violent.

I know with absolute certainty that if Charles had any idea of the side effects of Prozac he would never have taken it. This drug is most assuredly responsible for any torment or suffering and the eventual suicide of my husband. I want people to be aware of what can happen when you take this drug Prozac.

Thank you.

DR CASEY : Thank you.

Rest in Peace Del…you are not forgotten!

Trading Money for Mayhem: Anti-depressants’ Deadly Effects on America

Trading Money for Mayhem:

Anti-depressants’ Deadly Effects on America

JUNE 25, 2014 Posted by: KELLY GNEITING
Reddit

I am Ann Blake Tracy, author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare. Since early 1990 I have devoted every minute of my life to researching and writing about the SSRI antidepressant drugs. Since 1992 I have been testifying as an expert court witness on their adverse effects. I also head an international organization, the International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org), designed to educate the medical profession, patients, government authorities and others about these adverse effects and their impact upon our society. To see a full bio of who I am and what I have been doing over the past two plus decades you can go to http://www.drugawareness.org/mission/board/

In the beginning I had NO idea the overwhelming opposition I would face in my attempt to point out the obvious faults in the hypothesis behind these new antidepressants. I quickly learned that opposition was due to the massive amount of income produced by this group of drugs. But when I saw the damaging results I have seen from these drugs upon our society, I was determined to help save the lives of so many that are being needlessly lost. So concerned was I about the violence we were seeing in women and children I called the NRA and asked them to help me warn of the dangers of these drugs telling them that in the end these drugs would be the means by which enough violence would be produced that there would be a call to take America’s guns. Two decades later that is exactly where we are. Once you understand the science behind the drugs you will be able to see that such a prediction was only simple deduction.

Most important to learn is that SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants are the most similar drugs to LSD and PCP– long known to produce indescribable violence, we have ever seen. Yet LSD, was patented in 1956 by Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac which was the first of these SSRI antidepressants to be produced. They marketed LSD as a cure for mental illness and alcoholism and as an aid in psychoanalysis even though initially LSD was introduced by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals as a way to chemically induce insanity in someone so that scientists could then determine what was the root cause OF insanity.

PCP was introduced by Parke Davis Pharmaceutical and thought to be such a safe and effective prescription drug that it was on the market 7 years before pulling it. Its removal from the market was NOT due to concerns of the AMA or FDA, but at the insistence of law enforcement and judges who were tired of dealing with the violence produced by the drug. In fact over the past decade now scientists have even suggested that Ketamine (Special K), a sister drug to PCP, is the perfect antidepressant … with only one major drawback being the hallucinations/psychosis it produces. Of course since PCP and Ketamine are anesthetics they should know the drugs would stop all feeling, but do we really want a huge portion of society walking around under anesthesia? Yet since these antidepressants are so similar in action that is exactly what we have now.

In the early 2000’s law enforcement began to ask why violence for seemingly NO reason at all was appearing everywhere. And in February of 2004 Sheriff Richard Mack testified before the FDA on this same type of violence being produced as a result of these antidepressants. He ended his comments with: “”Some people don’t have the adverse reaction to these drugs, some do. I learned the same with LSD when I investigated that as an undercover narcotics officer. I can only say that the evidence is mounting over and over [as we investigate]. We cannot, as law enforcement officials, ignore such circumstantial evidence. I doubt very seriously if you could either… I am an advocate for state’s rights and I do believe that if the FDA fails to take action, the state and local authorities will have to.” (Sheriff Mack’s full testimony can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/t9wLpnu-iSc)

As you look at the following information I believe you will agree that it is time for state and local authorities to take action.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & SCHOOL VIOLENCE: This is a very long list of school violence/shootings we have documented which have been linked to antidepressant use since 1988 – 67 cases on the list: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be

A direct link to this list where you can read more on each individual case is at http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings and an entire database of almost 5000 cases like this ending in workplace violence, murder/suicides, etc. is at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org

Two other videos which you will find extremely enlightening are Corey Baadsgard’s video interview with him and his father about his own experience as the only school shooter I am aware of to talk about what happened, “Why I Took a Gun to School…”http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

Mark Taylor was the first boy shot at Columbine High School. He took 7 -13 bullets and survived. He became known as the Columbine Miracle Boy. This is Mark’s story about a new nightmare worse than what happened the day he was shot Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine.” You will learn about the cause of Columbine which includes Michael Moore stating it was NOT the guns, but the antidepressants that caused Columbine: http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/mark-taylors-fight4columbine

Here is Mark’s testimony before the FDA: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/mark-taylors-testimony-before-the-fda-9132004

For the science behind the violence I would point out that these drugs have suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects. Ideation is not just thoughts of either suicide or homicide. Ideation is ruminating compulsive thoughts or actions resulting in suicide or homicide. Once again I ask why is it okay to have prescription medications on the market known to cause both suicide and homicide? I refer also you to my brief September 2004 FDA testimony. http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda and my 2006 FDA testimony to give you more in depth information on other types of cases these drugs are producing other than school shootings: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

Another very serious issue I have been tracking this entire time is the problems in the military with these drugs. Hopefully you noticed the last two mass shootings in the military, the Navy Yard shooting and the Fort Hood shooting were both committed by someone taking antidepressants. Besides that since about 2007 the number of suicides in the military have outnumbered the deaths in battle – a first in our military while young recruits are being told they must take these antidepressants to go into combat. At this point we now have 660 suicides and another 1600 suicide attempts per month! I know the very large majority are being caused by these drugs, but it needs to be documented and then it needs to stop!

It is also important to note that I just testified before the Danish Parliament on the brain damage, endocrine damage and terrible long term withdrawal associated with antidepressants. Critical to understand is that the FDA has issued warnings that ANY abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant (whether increasing or decreasing the dose) can produce suicide, hostility, and/or psychosis. The withdrawal MUST be extremely (months and even years) in order to avoid these deadly effects!

Please feel free to contact me after viewing this information if I can answer any question left unanswered or if I can be of any further assistance.

Respectfully,

Antidepressant: Woman Who Made False Accusations of Abuse at Duke Found Guilty of Murder

crystalmagnum

Crystal Magnum

Found Guilty of Murder

This case makes it clear why it is so important for the public and the judicial system to recognize and understand these antidepressant-induced False Accusations of Abuse or recognize any of the early toxic reactions. This case of her false accusations of abuse against the Duke players was a warning sign of potentially more dangerous toxic reactions to her medication. Even though the story below refers to the case and states that “Magnum’s inconsistent story and her mental stability was called into question” still no one linked her questionable mental stability to adverse reactions to her antidepressant. If someone would have known enough to see her first case as a toxic reaction to the antidepressants she was on, and these false accusations of abuse are such common reactions to antidepressants, then they should have known enough to wean her off the medications at that point … before it reached the point of her committing murder as the drug reactions worsened leading to violence. This was completely preventable!!!

You can see the progress of the toxicity in her behavior listed below:

* 2006 – Falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of raping her in a gang rape…Magnum’s inconsistent story and her mental stability was called into question. …Prosecutors declined to press charges for the false accusations, but Mangum’s bizarre legal troubles continued.

* Not long after she was convicted on misdemeanor charges of setting a fire that nearly razed her home with her three children inside.

* In a videotaped police interrogation, she told officers she set got into a confrontation with her boyfriend at the time – not Daye – and burned his clothes, smashed his car windshield and threatened to stab him.

* 2011 – Stabbed boyfriend, Reginald Daye, killing him.

You can find all of this listed as examples of antidepressant toxic reactions in my 2004 http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda and 2006 testimonies before the FDA http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

FDA Appoved Drug

VERY FITTING WARNING!!! And it makes perfect sense because FDA approved drugs – given as the FDA has determined is a safe & effective manner to take the drugs – is the #3 leading cause of death in America! As the THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH properly prescribed prescription drugs have earned such a dire warning!!!!!!

Glaxo Is Testing Paxil on 7-Year-Olds Despite Well Known Suicide Risks

The only word for this news is “Criminal!” I hope they are watching these children 24-7 to keep them from committingsuicide or homicide while in the study. I recall the seven year old boy on Paxil I worked with who wanted to cut the baby out of his mother’s belly and the 17 year old who impulsively jumped off an overpass in front of a semi-truck to end his life. Then there was the 10 year old brother and 15 year old sister, both on Paxil, who stabbed their 7 year old brother and buried him in the back yard. Sounds like a great drug for kids, doesn’t it?
I just finished a court report (I have been testifying as an expert in these cases for almost two decades) on a Paxil case and noted that 18 of the listed side effects were indicators of mania. If Glaxo had labeled those effects for what really are instead of the labels they gave those reactions then no one would be surprised to know that in children the rate of Bipolar Disorder increased 4000% from 1996-2004.
As for Paxil being beneficial apparently someone missed the news that came out just over two years ago where the original studies done on SSRI antidepressants finally surfaced – many the FDA had never seen – indicating that the drugs offer no more benefit than a placebo. So if even the worst drugs perform better than placebo, where does that leave the SSRI antidepressants?

Glaxo Is Testing Paxil on 7-Year-Olds Despite WellKnown Suicide Risks

By Jim Edwards | May 21, 2010

It was established years ago that Paxil carries a risk of suicide in children and teens, but GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has for the last 18 months been conducting a study of the antidepressant in kids as young as seven — in Japan. It’s not clear why the company would want to draw more attention to its already controversial pill, but it appears as if GSK might be hoping to see a reduced suicide risk in a small population of users — a result the company could use to cast doubt on the Paxil-equals-teen-suicide meme that dominates discussion of the drug.

GSK didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. A staffer on GSK’s trials hotline confirmed the study was ongoing, however. The drug carries a “black box” warning on its patient information sheet, warning doctors and consumers that the antidepressant is twice as likely to generate lethal thoughts than a placebo.

The trial criteria listed on ClinicalTrials.gov, however, provide an interesting lesson in how managers can carefully design drug trials designed to flatter their products — something good companies don’t do.

The primary aim of the study is not to find out why Paxil makes some children kill themselves. Rather, it’s yet another efficacy study, which the drug doesn’t need because it was approved years ago — we already know the drug works.

Paxil is being tested against a placebo, so the results won’t be very surprising — even terrible drugs work better than sugar pills.

To what degree Paxil triggers suicide is only a secondary aim of the study. If the results suggest a lower suicide risk, expect GSK to play them up. If they’re bad, expect the company to dismiss them in favor of the primary endpoint results.

About 130 children have been enrolled, according to ClinicalTrials.gov, which puts about 65 patients in each arm. That means the results won’t be too statistically robust — there only need to be two or three outlier results to skew the numbers by several percentage points.

The trial will wrap up in September.
