Corey Baadsgaard – FDA Testimony

Corey Baadsgaard is, instead, in the county jail, writing letters of apology to classmates he has known since kindergarten – the same ones he forced into a classroom corner using a loaded big-game hunting rifle and swear words many had never heard him use before…..

….And school officials have since discovered that in the days before he brought the gun to school, he was having trouble adjusting to a new anti-depressant medication.

Humiliated and Worse on Prozac

“Frankly I think Eli Lilly is 100% responsible for the hell I have been through…”

 

I am a 46 year old man who has suffered a major disruption in his life because of Prozac. I heard of the web site and though I was not planning to write about my experience I realize there is need to do so. I wish to just outline them and perhaps later write a more detailed account at a later date.

1. I was taking Prozac for about 7 days
2. I sensed agitation and impatience growing as I took the drug.
3. I stopped taking the Prozac on the 8th day
4. I became filled with rage and remorse and wild fictions of what my life was all about and my marriage. I went to the store and bought beer. I do not drink, I bought the beer because years ago when I drank some it put me to sleep.
5. On the 8th day I was rage full and threatened my wife. I asked her to call 911 in one of my more lucid moments.
6. I had the distinct feeling that I wanted to frighten her and hurt her emotionally and physically. Then a moment later I did not think or feel that way.
7. I did not understand my own behavior or feelings.
8. I burned a sheet in the sink to make smoke to frighten her, and I threw a neck vibrator across the room.
9. The police came and arrested me, I spent 4 days in jail.
10. I paid huge fines and attorney fees.
11. I was charged with assault and reckless burning.
12. I was placed on probation for 2 years. 13. I was placed in a domestic violence program.

I am a nice guy. I have a wonderful family, a loving wife. I love my family. I have never been arrested in my life nor have I been in any trouble with the police. I am a business man who operates restaurants with over 90 employees. I am a college graduate. I have always been non violent, preferring to avoid fights and potentially dangerous situations. I had a very good life and was prescribed Prozac for mild depression and fatigue.

I have been humiliated, treated like a common criminal and am now a man with a criminal record. On the positive side I have been able to participate in a domestic violence group and learn some interesting things about violent behavior. However it is an academic exercise which if I had had an interest in I would have taken college courses on the topic. I have learned how a polygraph machine works since part of the program requires I take polygraph tests, and I have learned how to pee in a cup on demand for drug detection since I am now on probation. I do not take illegal drugs, and probably will not ever take prescription drugs because I am afraid of them, the consequences are too steep.

Frankly I think Eli Lilly is 100% responsible for the hell I have been through and if there is ever a class action suit I want to be there!
