RADIO SHOW: ANTIDEPRESSANTS IN THE MILITARY & ANDREA YATES CASE

Radio Show Monday: Ann Blake Tracy on “The Power Hour” with Captain Joyce Riley

powerhourbanner2

Ann Blake Tracy, Executive Director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org and www.ssristories.NET) will be on the international radio show “The Power Hour” with Captain Joyce Riley tomorrow morning, March 9, 2015, from 8:00 – 9:00 AM Central Time. You can access the show on the web from around the world at http://www.thepowerhour.com/ The subject of course will be antidepressants and since Joyce has long been the most vocal advocate for veterans in the country over the past two and a half decades we will be discussing the problems within the military as a result of the high antidepressant use among vets.

Immediately following the interview with Ann Blake Tracy will be a live interview with George Parnham the attorney for Andrea Yates, the Texas mother who drowned her five children as a result of taking the antidepressants Effexor and Remeron and having both abruptly and drastically changed (dropping one by 1/3 of the dose and increasing the other by 1/4 of the dose) just the day before – something the FDA warns can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis.

Without doubt Andrea suffered the REM Sleep Disorder, long known to be the most dangerous withdrawal effect of antidepressants where you act out nightmares in an unconscious state. It has been found that 86% of those being diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder are currently taking an antidepressant, yet no research has been done to show the percentage of those in withdrawal from antidepressants who are suffering REM Sleep Disorder. Rusty will tell you in a heartbeat that losing their children was without any doubt Andrea’s worst nightmare. The children were her life. She had even quit her nursing career to spend all of her time with them.

Comment from local news media KTNV TV by Ann Blake-Tracy · Top Commenter · Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org) at Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness

“After over two decades of tracking murder/suicides, school shootings, workplace violence and mothers killing their children I can say without hesitation that the answer to this tragedy lies in the prescription drugs the father was taking especially when he was likely being medicated by the VA.

From the article below we read: “Jenice said her husband, who was a Desert Storm vet, had recently been taking prescription drugs and may have been drinking following the argument.”

“I have a current case of diagnosed “homicidal ideation” produced by the antidepressants Celexa and Remeron in a young military man. I am absolutely shocked by the multiple drugs they handed out like candy to him that all interact negatively and then refused to give them for weeks at a time when the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing, can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis!

“The large number of murder/suicides in those you would never expect such behavior from is epidemic and shocking and almost always related to antidepressants or other serotonergic medications!!!”

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

MOTHER INTERVIEWED IN LAS VEGAS MURDER/SUICIDE OF HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER

North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — The North Las Vegas woman who watched her husband kill himself, just moments after he killed their 25-year-old daughter is speaking out.

“I just hate that they are saying it was a heated family argument. It wasn’t. It was four and a half, five hours later,” Jenice Landis said.

Jenice said she is still trying to figure out how an argument over housework at midnight led her husband, Greg, to kill their daughter, Amanda then himself Sunday morning.

“I just told him, ‘Greg I’m really not feeling good. I really need to sleep can we do this tomorrow. I know this is a ridiculous argument you are having with me.’ And Amanda woke up and said, ‘Dad, leave her alone and let her sleep.’ That is about all there was to the argument,” Jenice said.

Jenice and her daughter were staying in the same room while Jenice recovered from surgery.
They both went to sleep only to be jolted awake around 5 a.m.

“I woke up to gunfire and flashes and gun smoke. I rolled off the bed and I know that is the only reason I am alive, because I felt gunshots going by me and I looked at my daughter and he had shot her in the chest and her chest was nothing but blood and gore,” Jenice said.

Jenice then said her 52-year-old husband turned the gun on himself, leaving her to wonder how the man she was married to for 27 years could do such a thing.

“I didn’t think my husband would ever hurt one of his children. He wasn’t that person,” Jenice said.

Jenice said her husband, who was a Desert Storm vet, had recently been taking prescription drugs and may have been drinking following the argument.

Police said they will not be able to confirm that until they get toxicology results back. For now, Jenice and Amanda’s twin brother are just working to cope with the loss.

“My daughter was a beautiful creature and her life ended way too soon, and I don’t want people to ruin that celebration of her life that we are going to have,” Jenice said.

North Las Vegas Police are not releasing many details about the murder-suicide or details about the fight, saying it is too early in the investigation.

TWO SOLDIERS PRESCRIBED 54 DRUGS: MILITARY MENTAL HEALTH “TREATMENT” BECOMES FRANKENPHARMACY

andrew-white[1]

Marine Corporal Andrew White was prescribed

19 mind altering drugs in less than one year in the military

which led to his sudden death while home asleep in his bed.

The second article in a four part series by Kelly Patricia O’Meara addressing the over drugging of our military just came out entitled “Two Soldiers Prescribed 54 Drugs: Military Mental Health “Treatment” Becomes Frankenpharmacy” See the article link below:

Although this is a horrible situation in America with suicides outnumbering combat deaths due to the widespread use of these deadly drugs in our military, this is going on in many countries. Even Osama Bin Laden’s son has been diagnosed schizophrenic after his doctors said it was caused by his use of antidepressants. The LA Times reporter who did an amazing report about the Taliban & these medications quotes in his article in the Seattle Times the Taliban psychiatrist who said taking these antidepressant drugs is like “swallowing a little piece of God” – the question would be whose God is that??? Yes it has become the new sacrament for far too many religions! He went on to talk about a leader in his army who continually put himself on the frontline of each battle because he became so suicidal. So this is clearly a worldwide problem.

Andrew’s father, Stan White, is doing much to gather all of the American families together who have lost sons to these drugs whether it be a sudden death as was Andrew’s or a suicide or a murder/suicide. Please refer anyone with a military background to Stan so that he can document these cases. The tragic suicide we posted a few days ago of Tony Orban would be yet another. Tony was a decorated soldier who served well & had only been with the police department for five years before he had his reaction to Zoloft after being prescribed the drug for PTSD from his service in the military. These cases are everywhere! Notice how often it is a vet involved in one of these antidepressant-induced crimes.

As you read through Kelly’s article keep in mind the death of Anna Nicole Smith’s young son Daniel as he slept in a chair at a Florida hospital while visiting his mother & new baby sister. Daniel was only 20, young & healthy, but on a combination of antidepressants & other serotonergic medications. I was interviewed with & worked with the famous forensic pathologist, Dr. Cyril Wecht, on Daniel’s case. In discussing the case it seemed quite clear to us that this was not just sudden cardiac failure, but very possibly multiple organ failure, the result of Serotonin Syndrome, produced by the combination of serotonergic medications he was taking. Such seems to be the case with these young men as well. Generally only two serotonergic medications given together can produce Serotonin Syndrome while these young men were given many serotonergic medications in combination.

To go to Kelly’s article click here: www.cchrint.org/2012/10/30/military-mental-health-treatment-becomes-frankenpharmacy/

One of my favorite parts of the article is Kelly’s assessment of the cozy ties & mentality in the military doing the “treating” of these young men:

“Matthew J. Friedman, the executive director of the Department of Veterans Affairs National Center for PTSD, and Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology at Dartmouth Medical School, was on the payroll of AstraZeneca, the maker of Seroquel. And, while a consultant to AstraZeneca, Friedman was one of four authors of the American Psychiatric Association’s 2009 Practice Guide for the Treatment of Patients with Acute Stress Disorder and PTSD.[1] Additionally, as a proponent of SSRI medications to treat PTSD, Friedman also sat on the PTSD Scientific Advisory Boards for GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer—the makers of the antidepressants Paxil and Zoloft.[2]

“Despite Dr. Friedman’s belief that cocktails of mind-altering drugs will “help” those suffering from combat related symptoms, White’s symptoms not only persisted but worsened, and VA, military and civilian psychiatrists returned to their laboratories, ever convinced the next multi-drug elixir would elicit remarkable results.”

About the Author: Ann Blake Tracy is the author of PROZAC: PANACEA OR PANDORA?, and the director of the International Coalition For Drug Awareness [www.drugawareness.org]. She has testified before the FDA and has testified as an expert in legal cases involving serotonergic medications since 1992.

BOOK TESTIMONIALS:

“Very bold & informative”

“Priceless information that is giving me back to me”

“The absolute best reference for antidepressant drugs”

“Well documented & scientifically researched”

““I was stunned at the amount of research Ann Tracy has done on this subject. Few researchers go to as much trouble aggressively gathering information on the adverse reactions of Prozac, Zoloft and other SSRIs.”

WITHDRAWAL HELP CD TESTIMONIALS:

“Ann, I just wanted to let you know from the bottom of my heart how grateful I am God placed you in my life. I am now down to less than 2 mg on my Cymbalta and I have never felt better. I am finally getting my life back. I can feel again and colors have never been brighter. Thanks for all that you do!!” … Amber Weber

“Used your method of weaning off of SSRI’s and applied it to Ambien. Took 6 months but had been on 15 mg for years so what was another 6 months. I have been sleeping without it for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have been able to sleep drug free for 15 years. What a relief to be able to lay down and sleep when I need or want to. Ambien may be necessary for people at times but doctors giving a months worth of it at a time with unlimited refills is a prescription for disaster. It is so damn easy to become dependent on. Thanks for your council Ann.”… Mark Hill

“I’m so thankful for AnnTracy and all her work. Also for taking the time out to talk to me and educate everyone! She has been a blessing to me during this awful time of antidepressant hell!” … Antoinette Beck
