Gay Couple Awaits Marriage License in Utah
I realize that this is something many are very emotional about, but it is an issue where emotions need to be set aside long enough to reason through this one aspect because it could be a matter of life or death.
I lightly touched on this antidepressant adverse reaction in my book on these drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! Because I felt it most important to stop the mass shootings and terrible violence of parents killing their own children as well as all of the sudden suicides that were a result of these drugs, other reactions were put on the back burner. Yet there are SO MANY other absolutely devastating reactions to antidepressants that need to be understood and many of those adverse reactions are sexual in nature.
Obviously there are not many who want to hear this information on antidepressant-induced homosexuality because on one side you have those who firmly believe that this is natural and normal and do not want to hear that it could possibly be anything else. Yet on the other side you have those who want to condem others for acting out and do not want to “give them an excuse” for this type of behavior.
What both sides are missing is that homosexuality CAN BE a medication reaction. Add to that fact that an extremely high percentage of the gay community are in fact taking antidepressants. One of the very first cases I worked on involving Prozac adverse reactions was that of a happily married doctor and father who, much to his surprise, became both homosexual and alcoholic after prescribing Prozac to himself.
The following is the comment I posted on this in the local media today in Salt Lake City where, out of the blue and much to everyone’s surprise, gay marriage was approved on Friday. It is being appealed, but many are scrambling to get their marriages through the system while this is in effect. My statement is a warning to those in that position who have taken antidepressants or are currently on these drugs.
“I have been expecting this to happen in Utah for some time now. In a state that uses so many antidepressants, which can make patients gay via disruption of hormones [in the development stage], it should have been expected.
“In 2000 there were 2000 scientists from around the world who reported their grave concerns about the level of antidepressants in the water supply causing male fish to be born with ovaries! So this aspect of the adverse effects have proven to be even worse than I originally witnessed and reported in my book on antidepressants. [By the way I do not recall 2000 scientists around the world getting together to voice a common concern before this or since!] http://www.alternet.org/speakeasy/martharosenberg/drug-store-your-tap-water-and-fish-prozac
“Far too many patients have reported becoming gay on these drugs. So when I oppose gay marriage my main reason is that when people wean very, very slowly to safely come off their medications they generally go back to heterosexuality.
“So if you are marrying someone who is on these drugs get ready for a surprise when they come off! Or in other words make sure your relationship is not based on a medication side effect!
“(Questions? Google a French case last year where Didier Jambart was awarded more than requested in his lawsuit against a drug maker when his medication, similar to an antidepressant, caused this admitted drug reaction for him. Then read the book Our Stolen Future by Dr. Theo Colburn, which explains it well.)”
And now that you have read that statement you should know that the two main media outlets in Salt Lake City are KSL and the Deseret News. Their reaction to this statement was… Deseret News refused to print it and KSL suspended my account for attempting to post it!!!! Now this was being posted only as a comment on the story that ran on the gay marriages and it was sandwiched in with hundreds of other posts where it likely would not even be read!
My question? Why on earth would they care if it was posted? I backed up what I said and simply issued a warning to those this information might impact. Frankly I was shocked! Do their main advertisers, the drug companies, want to make certain this aspect of medication reactions is never discussed?
My point is that patients have the right to be fully informed about ALL possible reactions to a medication and drug companies have the responsibility to warn which it seems they do everything to avoid doing! A perfect case in point would be the I made post last week about the woman who made the false accusations of sexual abuse against the Duke University players while on antidepressants about six years ago. If someone would have associated the medication reaction of the false accusations of abuse then, she likely would not have remained on these drugs thus suffering more and more toxic reactions (known to produce changes in behavior little different than a brain tumor might) until she murdered her boyfriend two years ago.
Toxic reactions, no matter how they manifest physically, emotionally or behaviorally, must be dealt with because as you continue on the offending medication toxic reactions naturally become worse, not better!

WITHDRAWAL 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. 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! You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: http://store.drugawareness.org/
