Impact of Antidepressants Upon the Unborn -The Manie Foundation

As of March 17, 2018 it has now been 14 years since Manie was born with a rare heart defect & was rushed into emergency heart surgery when only 8 days old. Then two years ago learned he also has a rare lung defect. And on September 6, 2016 went in for additional surgery. Thus the Manie Foundation was born.

Manie Edgington was born in the heartland of America needing open heart surgery in order to save his life. This was the result of Julie’s extremely short term use of the antidepressant Paxil, a drug she discontinued only a few weeks after his conception when she realized she was pregnant. Sadly for Manie & his mother that was already weeks too late.

This same type of surgery was necessary for two baby boys in my own small Utah neighborhood where the families attended church with me. One of those had also been exposed to Paxil throughout his mother’s pregnancy and the other was exposed to the Prozac residue his mother had taken just before her pregnancy.

With the extremely high rate of use of antidepressants among women of childbearing age this information needs to get out to the public far, far more than what it is now!! How many babies is this happening to that we never hear about, that the mothers never even learn about? I know the stories of the two babies in my neighborhood were never made public in any way whatsoever. The reason for that was with the first one because the mother worked for a pharmacy and she remained on the drug, so she never wanted to take her son’s case to court. The other mother tried to file a case for her son, but as happens so often in going against a drug company with tons of money in their coffers set aside fight such cases, she could not find an attorney who would take her baby’s case pro bono and she did not have the funds to file it herself.

And then in one other case in my small neighborhood, my next door neighbor’s sister, who had been on Prozac for 7 years before weaning off, gave birth to a baby one and a half years after discontinuing her use of Prozac. When the baby was 3 weeks old it was passing more blood than stool. Both her family physician and pediatrician confirmed our fears that it was the Prozac residue in her mother’s milk that was eating away the baby’s intestinal lining. Further confirmation of that came as a mother who had never taken these drugs donated her mother’s milk so that the baby could receive her milk mixed half in half with the mother’s milk which stopped the baby’s intestinal bleeding.

And in two other cases I am aware of another neighbor on Prozac during her pregnancy gave birth to a baby boy with Autism. As he was never given vaccines it was always clear go the parents that Prozac had produced the Autism in their son which because they have chosen for years now to treat with diet & herbs is doing better & better.

The other case involved blood sugar issues. Hypoglycemia was the first birth defect noticed in babies born to mothers who had taken antidepressants. Of course early hypoglycemia would indicate that there is also early diabetes in these babies. A mother on antidepressants was asked to give a talk at church about the safety of antidepressants during pregnancy! That mother went on to assure everyone that her baby was just fine and that using antidepressants during pregnancy was a safe thing to do since she was still on her anti-depressants. What she did not disclose during her presentation was the fact that her baby then only one and a half years old was already suffering such severe diabetes that she was insulin-dependent! Of course anyone knows that means her life will be cut short because of the impact of diabetes at such an early age.

Are these the only problems in children stemming from their mothers use of antidepressants ? Far from it ! These are only some of the life threatening and very serious adverse effects that can come for my mother’s use of antidepressants before and during pregnancy. Much more is coming out now about the depression and anxiety and learning difficulties these children have due to the exposure to these drugs in the womb.

Young women of childbearing age who want families need to to be warned of the many possibilities of the negative impact of the use of an antidepressant upon their offspring instead of being lied to about these drugs being perfectly safe in pregnancy. If they want families they need to know how their use of these drugs can in fact produce life threatening situations for their children and long_term effects which can show up years later.

And this post wood not be complete without including very first comment posted on Facebook in response to this from a mother who was assured over and over again that her medication was safe during pregnancy thus affecting many of her children before one of them did not survive….

 

“I am sick of hearing “I was on antidepressants and my baby was fine.” Everyone assumes that exposure only causes physical defects.
“As a mom with a PPHN baby, a heart defect baby and one who died, plus 3 other living guys exposed (thank you lying medical comminity), you may not notice the impact right away. My 16 year old had a non eventful birth and was a normally healthy baby who was breastfed while I was still on antidepressants, as well as my 11 year old, and both have issues with behaviour and maturing at the same rate as others plus impulse control issues. You know, all the symptoms that get kids medicated for things like ADHD?
“I wonder how many babies born fine grow up to be struggling with problems because their brain was affected while in the womb? You can’t see the brain. There is so much more going on than we know.
“Unless you are of the belief that a mom taking street drugs as opposed to the mom on prescription drugs; your body knows the difference right?”

THE MANIE FOUNDATION

We love you Manie! I still have the picture I had of you on my desk in Iowa with you in your karate uniform. I hope with this last surgery it did not impair your ability to do your karate in any way.

Two School Shootings in the News on Columbine’s 18th Anniversary

Today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, marks the 18th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and marks the day after Barry Loukitis, in one of the first school shootings in this country, was once again given 189 years for killing a teacher and two classmates in Moses Lake, WA while no mention of these drugs and the role they played in that case has ever been mentioned in his defense! And while the real guilty parties in these school shootings continue to live in plush luxury with no repercussions whatsoever to this day!

The 12 students listed below and one teacher, William “Dave” Sanders, 47, were killed during the attack on the morning of April 20, 1999. And Eric Harris and Dylan Kleebold lost their lives in either a double suicide or a murder/suicide after the attack. Today we remember all the lives that were lost that day as well as those were severely injured and those whose lives were changed forever when Eric and Dylan reacted to their antidepressants:

Cassie Bernall, 17
Steven Curnow, 14
Corey DePooter, 17
Kelly Fleming, 16
Matthew Kechter, 16
Daniel Mauser, 15
Daniel Rohrbough, 15
Rachel Scott, 17
Isaiah Shoels, 18
John Tomlin, 16
Lauren Townsend, 18
Kyle Velasquez, 16

The day this happened I was on the phone with Ruben Ortega, Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, discussing with him some local tragedies to help him to understand the impact of these drugs upon the community he served and the public as a whole. The Salt Lake Family History Library shooting had recently happened with an elderly Russian man killing two before being shot. That elderly Russian man had an experience very similar to the German Wings pilot who two years ago took a plane with 150 to their deaths as he flew it into a mountain side in the Alps. This elderly Russian man noticed that he was losing his eyesight as a result of his antidepressant so he just stopped taking it with NO IDEA what that can cause! (If you see the REM Sleep Disorder listed in the Evidence section on School Shootings you will see the reaction he had that morning on his daily walk past the Family History Library as he opened fire killing one of my dear friends, Don Thomas, whom I had warned over and over again about the danger he was in there as the Family History Library security guard.) As Chief Ortega learned more and more about how these drugs work and how they can produce psychosis and violence and are so very similar in action to a slow fuse LSD or PCP he mentioned that was the case in the recent KSL shooting as well. The woman who came into that building shooting and killing a woman who worked there and her unborn child was also on one of these drugs. He then asked me, “Do you think what is going on right now in that school shooting in Littleton, CO could be caused by these drugs as well?” I replied that I did not generally see a case where two people go off the deep end on these drugs at the same time, but if they commit suicide too, you can bet it is one of these cases.” I was to later learn that about the same time I was making that statement to Chief Ortega is when Eric and Dylan lost their lives to the suicidal ideation we now have warnings are doubled for those under the age of 25 who take these drugs.

Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine

Please watch Mark Taylor’s Fight For Columbine to see how this tragedy has never gone away for Mark and has only gotten worse for him after he filed suit against the antidepressant maker of Luvox . Luvox is the antidepressant Eric Harris was taking when he shot Mark. And before anyone starts in on we don’t have any evidence of Dylan being on anything you need to know  that a girlfriend of Dylan’s came to Mark Taylor’s mother and then spoke with me about trying to help Dylan come off his Zoloft and Paxil (the same drug found guilty in the suicide of one of the nations’ leading attorneys.

GLAXO ORDERED TO PAY OUT ANOTHER MULTIMILLION DOLLAR VERDICT IN ATTORNEY’S SUICIDE

  • Definitely great news to be getting on the 18th anniversary of Columbine!!!

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid this drug company is!!!! If they were not made foolish enough in the Tobin vs Glaxo case by their own expert testifying under oath that according to his decades of research on serotonin that the two pills of their deadly antidepressant Paxil taken by a mild mannered elderly grandfather Donald Schell should have been expected to cause him to shoot his wife, visiting daughter and infant granddaughter and himself….Yet they were stupid enough to take the case of a suicide by a prominent attorney to court instead of settling the case with a gag order in place to keep this from the public as they have done for decades?!!

They must all be on these antidepressant drugs shown in 1993 research to turn brain cells into corkscrew shapes!!!!! There clearly are not a lot of smarts in that company!

Or maybe they think they have produced enough corkscrew shaped brain cells in the general public with these drugs that no one will notice this verdict….

Generic Paxil Garners Guilty Verdict For GSK

Whatever this is great news for victims because apparently this attorney took the generic version of Paxil, Paroxetine, which has been able to avoid wrongful death suits because it is a generic form of a drug that has been ruled “safe and effective” by the FDA. It did not work this time! Glaxo who put out the original Paxil and Brisdelle (Paxil with a name change given for Menopause) has now been found liable for this suicide!! I love it! Karma has found them and they have reaped what they sowed for putting these deadly drugs on the market.

Our Facebook Groups for Paxil & Brisdelle

GSK Hit With $3M Verdict For Reed Smith Atty’s Suicide
By Jessica Corso

Law360, Chicago (April 20, 2017, 4:20 PM EDT) — An Illinois federal jury on Thursday found GlaxoSmithKline liable for the death of Reed Smith LLP partner Stewart Dolin and ordered the pharmaceutical giant to pay $3 million to the attorney’s widow, reaching the conclusion that a generic version of GSK’s Paxil caused Dolin to take his own life.

A nine-person jury agreed with Wendy Dolin that her husband had committed suicide in 2010 under the influence of generic paroxetine, an antidepressant sold as brand-named Paxil. (AP) Following five weeks of trial testimony, the nine-person jury agreed…

Attorney Stu Dolan’s suicide was horrific. It was yet another suicide by train which in my research I have RARELY found any of these extremely violent suicides which did not include the use of an antidepressant. Read here about this extremely high profile and very successful attorney to know that a $3Million verdict did not even begin to compensate for this man’s life!!!

Paxil-Induced Murder Suicide Inspired Jennifer Anniston’s Movie “Cake”

Tim Tobin family

Tim, Deb and Alyssa Tobin

Well I don’t normally watch movies but will go watch this one since I worked on the Tobin vs Glaxo case for three plus years. Almost three of those years were spent waiting on the high profile attorney Jerry Spence to see if he would handle the case until he concluded he did not know enough about antidepressants to do the case justice. At that point Andy Vickery, who has been the lead attorney handling so many of these cases for many years, was brought in on the case. In the end the jury ruled that the two Paxil pills taken by Donald Schell before the tragedy was the main cause of Tim Tobin’s father-in-law, Donald Schell, killing his wife, daughter and infant grand-daughter before killing himself.

I actually learned about this case while testifying in the case of a woman in Western Wyoming who had shot her husband while he slept. She too was on Paxil and had no recall of what had happened but knew she must have been the one to shoot her husband as she had what she described as “a smoking gun” in her hand. So this women, described by all as the “nicest woman in town,” walked over to the Sheriff’s office and turned herself in.

Phil - Brynn Hartman

Comedian Phil Hartman and his wife, Brynn

 

The following morning after driving back from Wyoming the night before I woke up to the reports of the murder suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife Brynn. I was shocked that the case was identical to both of these Wyoming cases from the day before. The following evening I spoke with Brynn Hartman’s family and told them why I suspected the drugs and not to stop looking until they found one of these antidepressants. Because of what I had heard about the case I felt strongly antidepressants were behind it. I was not about to have the Hartman’s children go through life without either of their parents and no answers as to why their mother had done this.

All of these cases were much too similar. Although in the Hartman case the antidepressants involved were Zoloft and Tramadol, instead of Paxil. The Hartman children’s wrongful death case did not go to court as this one did but was settled by Pfizer the manufacturer of Zoloft.

Antidepressant-Induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD)

Although I agree that pain killers are a very serious problem I am disappointed that the drug involved in the Tobin tragedy was not addressed in this movie instead – the antidepressant Paxil. Antidepressants produce a sleep disorder called REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where the patient has no paralysis during sleep and can act out the nightmares they are having. It has long been known to include both murder and suicide. Latest figures show that 86% of those being diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder are taking an antidepressant. Even more frightening is that RBD has long been known as a drug withdrawal state so we could expect even more cases if the patient or their doctor does not know enough to understand that patients should wean extremely slowly off these medications to avoid the withdrawal.

Cake the Movie

Here is an introduction to the movie and background: EXCLUSIVE: The true story behind Jennifer Aniston’s Cake – how movie’s scriptwriter was inspired by the brutal murder of his brother’s wife, baby daughter and mother-in-law

Cake has been acclaimed for Aniston’s portrayal of suicidal mom hooked on prescription drugs in aftermath of car crash that killed her child

Daily Mail Online can reveal movie was written by Patrick Tobin after his brother’s young family was slaughtered by a relative

Deb Tobin and her nine-month-old daughter Alyssa were shot dead by her father, along with her mom Rita Schell, by Don Schell, her father

Tim Tobin, Patrick’s brother, found the horrific scene at father-in-law’s home in Gillette, Wyoming on Valentine’s Day, 1998

Schell was taking anti-depressant Paxil and Tim Tobin sued maker, winning $6.4m compensation after it was named ‘proximate cause’ of killings

Patrick Tobin then quit Hollywood to look after his suicidal brother and eventually wrote Cake as a result of experience

Jennifer Aniston’s career-defining performance in hit movie Cake has earned her a flurry of plaudits and award nominations.

The Friends star gives a gritty portrayal of suicidal mom Claire Bennett who is hooked on prescription drugs while struggling to live with debilitating injuries she endured in a car crash that killed her child.

When it was missed from the Oscars shortlist, many critics said it was a miss and should have been included.

But few watching the heart-wrenching Hollywood film will be aware that the screen drama is in fact inspired by a tragic and brutal real life story.

Daily Mail Online has learned that screenwriter Patrick Tobin penned the powerful movie following a devastating family tragedy that saw four of his brother’s family slaughtered.

February 2004 FDA Testimony of Corey and Jay Baadsgaard – Why I Took a Gun to School

corey

Corey Baadsgaard

Since it seems from the feedback we received after posting Mark and Cheryl Miller’s FDA testimony that many of you were unaware of all the testimonies on our site I thought I would post a few more for you.

This is Corey and his father Jay Baadsgaard from Mattawa, WA. No one gained more media attention at the February 2, 2004 FDA hearing on antidepressants and children than did Jay Baadsgaard, who has now been serving as our Washington Co-Director for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness for many years. In watching their presentation to the FDA you will see why. Jay has one of the deepest and longrange voices I have ever heard. Find the link to their testimony here: http://www.drugawareness.org/corey-baadsgaard-fda-testimony/

And you can find Corey’s story in the following video as to what happened to him when he suffered one of the most deadly adverse reactions to antidepressants known as a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where you act out nightmares in a dream state. Corey got up from a short nap, but did not wake up as he took a gun to school under the influence of Paxil and Effexor. He held classmates at gunpoint while he fluctuated between homicidal and suicidal ideation for 45 and to this day has no memory of it. Here is the link to his story Why I Took a Gun to School: http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

ANTIDEPRESSANTS – How We Are All Adversely Affected

me in front of hearse

AUGUST 22, MY MOTHER’S BURIAL

I am going to share a couple of experiences in my life today to help you to see how incredibly widespread the nightmare of these antidepressants really is.

This is a picture of me walking past the hearse today to dedicate my mother’s grave as her final resting place. The look on my face is not from anything to do with burying my mother, instead it is shock from seeing the grave next to the hearse just a few graves away from my parent’s graves.

Let me explain why…

The name on the grave with a picture on the headstone was William Farar and this was the first time I had ever seen a picture of Bill. Several of his family are friends of mine here on Facebook because Bill Farar was one of the first of many SSRI-induced suicides in my hometown. I worked with his family to help them to understand that what had taken his life was NOT suicide, but instead a reaction to his antidepressant.

I had also just spoken at my mother’s funeral where each of us children shared the most important things about our mother. Other than her incredible example of caring for all people was that while on a college tour of Mexico she had recruited Dr. Larry Porter, originally from northern Mexico, to help translate for her as they went to visit my infant son who was waiting with a family there for us to finish his adoption. Dr. Porter became convinced that Mexico would never allow my son to leave the country so he began to look at other options unbeknownst to me.

A month or two later he contracted pneumonia and was hospitalized when a 15 year old girl walked into the hospital in labor and said she wanted to give her child up for adoption.. Dr. Porter’s daughter was a nurse there and immediately ran to tell her father about the baby. Dr. Porter got out of his hospital bed and ran to the front of the hospital to say he knew a couple who desperately wanted a baby and would adopt the child.

Because my mother did not want me to go through the pain and anguish once again of getting my hopes up for a baby and then not being able to complete the adoption, she brought the baby home and kept her for the three day waiting period Arizona has for a legal release for adoption. She then called me to have me guess what she had waiting for me in my little brother’s room! I flew down to bring my new baby daughter home and three weeks later Senator Jake Garn was able to assist us with finalization of my son’s adoption. So within three weeks I had two babies a year and a half apart! Yikes!

That was in 1980. Fast forward another 13 years and Dr. Larry Porter had moved to Provo, Utah where he had established his practice. One day I got a call from one of his patients wanting help. He said he thought he was having serious adverse reactions to Prozac because as a guard at the prison he was not only having thoughts, but actually making plans to kill everyone on death row. He found these thoughts and plans alarming enough to ask for help because he thought those thoughts were coming from his Prozac. So I helped him as he weaned of Prozac and the thoughts and plans disappeared along with his Prozac.

But what had made him realize it was Prozac causing this was his own doctor, who had told him he too was on Prozac. Yet his doctor had just shot his wife and and himself in a murder/suicide. That doctor was Dr. Larry Porter who had helped me to adopt my daughter! This was COMPLETELY out of character for Dr. Porter! His patient knew it, I knew it, and Dr. Porter’s family knew it. They believed someone must have come into the home and murdered both of them. But the police investigation concluded that it was a murder/suicide. I was then able to work with Dr. Porter’s son to help the family understand how this could have happened.

So I share this with you to let you know that even in laying my mother to rest I am surrounded by SSRI nightmares as all of us are if we but look. I am aware of this only because I see these nightmares where others remain blind to them. I encourage you all to look around you and become aware of what is happening in your own circle of family, friends and neighbors.

PROZAC: Police Release Findings in Sparks NV School Shooting

Jose Reyes

12 Year Old Jose Reyes,

Sparks Middle School Shooter – 3 Days on Prozac

Thanks to our Washington Director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness for bringing this information to us. If you will watch the video posted below, Why I Took a Gun to School, you will meet Jay and his son and see why this is such a big issue for Jay.

The Sparks Nevada student, Jose Reyes, was only 12 when he shot and killed a teacher, Michael Landsberry, who was attempting to stop the shooting, and wounded two other students before killing himself. He had been placed on generic Prozac only three days earlier and wrote two suicide notes.

Think that is not enough of one of these drugs to cause a murder/suicide? Then you need to read the transcripts of the Tobin vs Glaxo case in Cheyenne, WY where Donald Schell took only two pills of the antidepressant Paxil before rising early the morning after the second pill to shoot his wife, visiting daughter and baby granddaughter, before shooting himself. After hearing all the evidence with the majority of it coming from Glaxo’s expert witness, Dr. John Mann, the jury ruled that the two pills of Paxil were the main cause of this tragedy and awarded $6.4 Million to the family for that.

I encourage you to listen to the only school shooter who has survived to tell his story before a camera. See the second link below to watch his video “Why I Took a Gun to School” from the Gary Null movie The Drugging of Our Children.

Drugawareness.org YouTube Channel – Teens on SSRIs

Jamie Tierney

It seems few of you are aware that the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has its own YouTube Channel with lots of information there. Once you subscribe to the Drugawareness Channel you will automatically be notified as we send out new videos – something we are gearing up to do a lot of in the near future as we comb through all of my older videos and recordings.

Find one video below as an example of some of the videos you will find there.

Sign up for the YouTube Drugawareness.org Channel here:

http://www.youtube.com/user/icfda?annotation_id=channel%3A5188b312-0-2135-95bf-47d7b87382e&feature=iv&src_vid=XH7m-YNApU4

And here is a direct link to the videos on our YouTube channel: http://www.drugawareness.org/videos/

The following example is a news piece that covers the experience of two teens, Christopher Pitman & Jamie Tierney. At age 12 Chris was prescribed Paxil and then Zoloft and after only a few months killed the two people he loved the most, his grandparents, and then proceeded to burn the house down with their bodies still inside. Jamie at 15 became suicidal and full of rage after being given Effexor for migraine headaches.

In posting the new information over the next few months I would hope it would give you a good picture of how much information has been out there for how long and what all has been accomplished at this point. If you are wondering why these antidepressants are still on the market from what you are seeing and learning currently, just wait until you see all that has already transpired and the information that has been out on the drugs for years now.

I have long said that those beginning to see this situation with these drugs need desperately to learn the history behind what has already transpired. We will also be including some very long, in depth, radio interviews on these drugs that will teach you things you have not yet heard anywhere else even though they are over a decade old. I encourage you to listen and learn and share with others so that they can see this antidepressant fiasco for what it really is.

LA Times: Paxil (Brisdelle) Promotes Breast Cancer

 

e

The following is my comment in the LA Times addressing this new research:

“Little surprise this is when we knew years ago research indicated a SEVEN times greater chance of breast cancer with Paxil. But unknown to me when I saw the approval come through for Brisdelle this summer is that it was actually Paxil renamed!! Surprising? You bet! Because I have been one of the most outspoken opponents to antidepressants for 25 years, writing, lecturing, doing media interviews even with the LA Times & not even I knew the FDA was approving Paxil!

“There is no excuse for this!!! Why was Lilly allowed to change the name of Prozac to Sarafem to prescribe for PMDD & Wellbutrin allowed to change its name to Zyban to prescribe for smoking cessation? Anyone wonder what they are trying to hide? Feel free to go to our international support site to find out www.drugawareness.org.

“Patients need to know the type of drug they are taking! When prescribed an antidepressant they need to know what it is! When I did the Leeza Gibbons Show on the subject of mothers on antidepressants killing their own children we were told we could say the word “antidepressant,” but we could not say the brand names of the medications because of their advertisers. So with them peddling these drugs under another name & for different health issues, how does the patient know they are taking an antidepressant? With antidepressant side effects as deadly as homicidal & suicidal ideation this is criminal!”

I personally have lost two close friends to Paxil-induced breast cancer although one got cancer on her ear due to her use of Prozac first. Remember that all SSRIs work basically the same way and should have very similar effects. And my uncle, who had refused to even allow me to discuss antidepressants with him, died of a very fast moving cancer due to his use of Paxil. He was diagnosed with inoperable cancer on Thursday and by the following Wednesday he was dead. In my last conversation with him a day or two before his death as we said our goodbyes he said, “I know I have given you a LOT of flack about what you are doing concerning these drugs, but DON’T YOU EVER STOP because what has been done to me should be done to no one!”

This is why I am so firm in discussing what needs to be done even after coming off these medications. The damage they have caused needs to be addressed and alternatives used to rebuild in order to avoid cancer and many other serious health problems due to the post drug adverse effects of the antidepressants. If the deficit is not addressed that the drug leaves in its wake problems can arise. I am working with a young woman currently who now has breast cancer years after her use of Prozac. Just a coincidence? I do not believe it is. She has had no opportunity to rebuild after being incarcerated at age 13 due to the drug effects. So when I post information on alternative treatments for cancer you can see why I feel it is important to pay attention.

Are Vivid Dreams A Concern in Antidepressant Use?

 

Dr

Dr. Tracey Marks

Thanks to our Southern Washington State Director for ICFDA (International Coalition for Drug Awareness) who learned firsthand how deadly vivid dreams are in association with antidepressant use when his son took a gun to school in a dream state while on Effexor and in withdrawal from Paxil and held his classmates at gunpoint for what seemed an eternity for some.

Dr. Marks downplays any importance of the SSRIs repression of REM sleep and the vivid dreams or nightmares associated with these drugs and even suggests switching to another antidepressant if this reaction bothers you…yet she gives no warning of the dangers of switching medications by going off abruptly and then on another one abruptly – the way all meds are prescribed.

My response to this video and the incorrect information relayed:

“This is perhaps the MOST IRRESPONSIBLE statement I have ever heard on antidepressant adverse reactions!!! These antidepressant-induced vivid dreams are the most dangerous reactions anyone can have next to Serotonin Syndrome. That is because the vivid dreams indicate you are on the verge of suffering an antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) where you act out these dreams or nightmares! Add to that the fact that in RBD 80% are known to hurt themselves or someone else. RBD is even known to result in murder and suicide committed in a sleep state! Before SSRIs RBD was rare but not now and now 86% of those being diagnosed are taking an antidepressant – a figure shocking even to the world’s leading experts on this disorder who found this percentage!

“The repression of REM sleep via a medication reaction or sleep deprivation has long been known as a trigger for psychotic breaks. So I am confused as to why would you tell patients not to worry about this? Eric Harris, the lead shooter at Columbine, had those vivid dreams about killing his classmates for some time on the antidepressant Luvox before acting out those dreams on April 20, 1999!

“I have raised the issue of this deadly sleep disorder associated with antidepressants often preceded by the vivid dreams for 2 1/2 decades and would like to know if you have vested interests due to working for a pharmaceutical company? Or are you trying to avoid a wrongful death suit brought by a patient who suffered this reaction? Something just does not smell right when you are downplaying such a deadly reaction to antidepressants.”

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!
