LEXAPRO: Artie Lange Arrested for DUI: New York

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy: Artie is right – Lexapro
would be the cause of his DUI whether he was sober or not. Considering the
strong negative effect SSRI antidepressants have upon the pancreas as they cause
drops in blood sugar and lead patients into mania (Dipsomania is described as an
“overwhelming craving for alcohol”.) it should be no surprise to anyone that an
SSRI would be the cause of many DUIs. If he is still sober, he deserves a medal
for being able to stay that way while on an SSRI antidepressant!!

Is Lexapro to blame for Artie Lange‘s DUI?

July 13, 9:05 AM

At long last, The
Howard Stern Show
returned to the air live this Monday morning.  With
the abundance of celebrity news to catch up on and current box office topper
“Bruno” in the studio, Howard Stern Show fans really only wanted to hear about
one thing: Artie

Lange’s DUI.  After proclaiming that he had been clean and sober for
months, Artie Lange was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Friday after a fender
bender in Tom’s River, New Jersey.

Artie

Lange was noticeably quieter than usual on Monday morning’s broadcast, only
peppering the on-air conversations with an occasional joke or cutting
remark.  About two hours into the broadcast, Artie Lange finally broke his
silence about Friday’s DUI.  After stating that: “for once I’m actually
doing something sensible and listening to my lawyer and not talking about
it,”  Artie

Lange went on to tease the audience with a few details of the incident that
catapulted him to the top of Google Trends on Friday, despite The Howard Stern
Show having been off air for a full two weeks.

Artie
Lange
insists that he blew a 0.0 on the Breathalyzer test that he was given
at the scene of the accident.  Artie Lange also reported that he was also
given a urine test at the police station.  Artie Lange states that there
were no illicit drugs in his system, and that all the analysts will find that
could possibly explain his erratic driving is the antidepressant

Lexapro.

Artie Lange spoke openly about his struggles with depression in
his recent bestselling book “
Too Fat to Fish
.”  In the past, the comedian has rejected the idea of
taking antidepressants to treat his mood, despite his willingness to dabble in
the spectrum of illegal substances.

But could Lexapro really be to blame
for Artie Lange’s DUI?  Fans, friends and family members of Artie Lange are
all thinking the same thing: the whole story sounds too fat to fishy.  In

Artie Lange’s defense, the official website for Lexapro lists among the
drug’s safety precautions:
“Patients should be cautioned about operating hazardous machinery, including
automobiles, until they are reasonably certain that Lexapro does not affect
their ability to engage in such activities.”  Although Artie Lange did not
state how long he has been taking Lexapro, he did report that he started it
“recently.”

Artie Lange has stated that he has “a lot to say” about
Friday’s DUI arrest, and that he is looking forward to talking openly on the
subject once his lawyer approves it.  Artie Lange is scheduled to appear in
court on Friday, July 17th.

LEXAPRO: The Howard Stern’s Show’s Artie Lange Arrested for DUI: New York

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy (www.drugawareness.org): After specializing in antidepressant adverse reactions for 20

 lexapro

years I would say that Lexapro is one of the worst. Giving it, or any other antidepressant, to someone with previous substance abuse problems is criminal! These drugs produce OVERWHELMING CRAVINGS for alcohol and other drugs. They can take those who have never touched these substances before & turn them into addicts almost overnight. (www.drugawareness.org/book-excerpts/ssris-and-alcohol) Antidepressants are notorious for producing mania/bipolar. One of the forms of mania is described as uncontrollable cravings for alcohol.

Adverse reactions can be worse: the deaths of Brynn & Phil Hartman & Andrea Yates’ 5 children. Then there’s the man in Palm Beach who after years of a happy hetrosexual life ran off to NY for a sex change operation after starting an antidepressant. He returned to his wife extremely remorseful & with no idea why he did what he had done.
