Animals Force-fed Antidepressants

Beyond those animals being tortured in Pharma laboratories are those animals who have no choice freely prescribed prescription drugs at astronomical rates! Below is the comment on this video I posted a few days ago on the prescribing of antidepressants to animal’s. Most remain unaware that animals are prescribed far more drugs than humans. (Something those of you continuing to eat meat while working to regain your health and detox after the use of antidepressants need to ponder.)
“Before I make my comment allow me to state that I have specialized in the drugs this poor dog is being given and testifying in court cases against the drugs both to the FDA and in criminal cases involving these drugs for almost three decades. I have also been working to get them off the market with the doctor whose research was used to make them possible, yet came out against them in 1997 calling the drugs “monsters” and saying she wished she had never had anything to do with their development. I have also done media interviews with the doctor who admittedly BRIBED the approval of these drugs when he worked for Pharma who paid to bribe that approval! He too (You can find all that documentation on our website at www.drugawareness.org.)
“Was this dog abused?! Whatever the abuse was, the abuse she is suffering now from that “behavioral vet” has to be far worse than anything she may have ever had before! Putting her on multiple medications (call them what they really are – drugs!) is little different than confining her to Auschwitz!!! The abuse is now mental and emotional, on top of physical, as she goes in and out of withdrawal from powerful mind altering drugs as with this vet switching her meds – a withdrawal humans report is at least 10 times worse than heroin withdrawal!!!
“Poor innocent thing! As if she did not suffer enough abuse already! Now if someone will VERY GRADUALLY, VERY, VERY GRADUALLY (taking months, not days or weeks after a year of being drugged wean her safely down off those drugs she will begin to go outside, get rid of her anxiety (since all these drugs CAUSE or increase anxiety), not cure it, and she will become a happy, healthy, normal dog! Our website at www.drugawareness.org has an MP3 “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!) on how to wean safely & how to calculate how long someone needs to take to do so safely.
“With these drugs producing  a side effect like biting…these drugs could get her euthanized. Biting is common in humans on the drugs so how much greater a reaction would it be for a dog? Years ago the President of France was sent to the hospital after being badly bitten by his pet poodle on Prozac.  http://ssristories.net/archive/showce10.php?item=3103
“And to show you how bad it can really get another early case involving Prozac was that of a respected Stanford professor who nearly killed her mother by taking over 20 bites out of her and answering the door for police with dried blood down her face and all down the front of her after only two weeks on Prozac!  http://www.apnewsarchive.com/1991/Daughter-Arrested-in-Biting-Attack-on-87-Year-old-Mother/id-53fcfe3a82590fcc0701b4c9e62bac96
“All antidepressants and benzodiazepines work the same upon serotonin to produce this aggressive effect. Remember Travis the TV star chimp suffering from Lymes Disease and put on Xanax? The well trained family pet went everywhere with his owners but after recently being prescribed Xanax bit off a woman’s hands and a large portion of her face before being killed by police in a effort to stop him! (2009/02/17/chimpanzee-attacks-mauls-connecticut-woman-before-being-killed-by-police.html)
“Here is a website database with about 5000 similar cases including most all school shootings: www.SSRIstories.NET. Please take a look at that list and then ask yourself how many times we as a society need to stick our hand in fire in order to realize it burns?! These drugs are a death sentence physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Just two weeks ago one of the most extensive studies I have seen demonstrated that antidepressants increase one’enhances of death by 33% and increase the rate of heart attack and stroke by 14%.
“I have seen so many humans suffer for years  due to the adverse effects of these  drugs  that the thought  of a poor helpless animal going through that kind of torture due to forced drugging just turns my stomach! If I were her I would be taking a chunk out of that “behavioral veterinarian”! Maybe someone in one of our many groups who are all trying to somehow find a way to get off of these drugs and put their life back together could take her and they could go through withdrawal together as a support system for each other. What a sad, sad state of affairs for our world!”

RIP From Del Shannon to Chris Cornell

 Here you have Chris Cornell’s wife telling you her husband did not commit suicide and it must have been a reaction to  Ativan. Add to that below you have Del Shannon’s widow explaining how what Del did was so totally out of character just as Chris’ wife stated and that she knew it was the Prozac that caused him to take his life.

 (See link to transcript of Le Anne’s FDA testimony below)
Del Shannon was given the drug only for exhaustion from so many new gigs as his had career started really taking off again. He had recovered earlier from an addiction to alcohol.
One main problem with both of these classes of drugs is that they both cause cravings for alcohol and yet they both have warnings not to use the drugs in conjunction with alcohol. So you are set up from the get go with them. In fact it is the first thing I saw with Prozac that caught my attention because I saw so many who did not drink become alcoholics almost overnight on these SSRI and SNRI antidepressants. This is why we have a Facebook group titles Antidepressant-induced Cravings For Alcohol.
Not that either Del nor Chris were drinking. Del’s autopsy showed nothing. He was sober and had been for some time. And he had only taken Prozac for 15 days. Chris’ autopsy will not be available for weeks yet.
But what can make one pill have the impact of two or more is what is called “kindling.” Both Del and Chris had previous issues with drug or alcohol addiction and what does that do to one’s liver? It clearly impairs liver function and thus their ability to metabolize the medications they were prescribed. Seriously! What are doctors thinking?!!! That is such basic medical knowledge.
 The fact is that recovering addicts should NEVER ever be given a drug as “treatment” because their livers are already compromised from the effects of the previous drug use! No one warns of this! In fact all I have seen in my almost 30 years of sounding the warnings about these drugs is the non-stop peddling of all these kinds of drugs to drug and alcohol recovery/rehabilitation centers!
Look at the example of Lindsay Lohan. On Zoloft she developed the cravings for alcohol that come with antidepressants and what did the court system do? They brought her in charged her for it and court ordered her to take her Zoloft! The same drug that was causing the cravings for alcohol in the first place was their solution for her improving her life! I hope she learns this some day and is able to sue them all for the hell she has gone through as a result! She is lucky to have survived it, but anyone who has lived through it can tell you that no one would ever want to experience what she has gone through on these drugs – her and far too many others!
The best recovery centers in this country with almost ZERO recidivism are those set up by Dr. James Milam. The reason he has such excellent results is that he uses diet and nutrition to support the patients and help them to heal. He understands that drug and alcohol addictions need to be treated for the hypoglycemia they either have caused or worsened so he puts them on a hypoglycemic diet. Drugs and alcohol deplete nutritional levels. Those levels need to be replenished after drug/alcohol use in order to heal, not further depleted with additional drugs, even if those drugs are currently legal – a status that is ever changing with many drugs. And the stronger effects produced by the prescription drugs needs to at least be considered along with the liver’s post drug function in determining its ability to handle those drugs. I do not see that happening and these two examples alone demonstrate how very deadly the results of that can be.
In memory of Del:https://youtu.be/nSkV9pdzLgo
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THE POTENTIAL OF THESE DRUGS TO PRODUCE SUICIDE IN ABRUPT WITHDRAWAL IS EVEN HIGHER THAN WHEN TAKING THE DRUGS….ALWAYS WEAN OFF EXTREMELY GRADUALLY AS THEY HAVE TERRIBLE WITHDRAWAL EFFECTS!!!

ANTIDEPRESSANT CONNECTION TO LSD & PCP – ELI LILLY PATENTED LSD 2/28/1956

Someone on Facebook shared with me a website on the “benefits” of LSD to get my response to this website that really upset her. The following is the comment I posted on their site to help them to see how insane what they have posted about LSD having “benefits” is and where it all came from! I thought you would find this information very interesting, especially if you have not yet learned it in reading my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!

LSD & PCP MIMIC SEROTONIN TO PRODUCE HALLUCINATIONS

First you should know that LSD and PCP produce their hallucinogenic effects via mimicking serotonin. That is right, the same chemical you have heard so much about as a happy, warm, cuddly neurotransmitter that everyone needs especially if you are anxious or depressed!!! So as the serotonin level increases over time instead of an instant reaction like you are on LSD this LSD effect takes place over a period of time as the serotonin increases. So in this gradual process it appears that YOU are the one going insane, rather than the drug producing the instant insanity you get from LSD as it mimics this neurotransmitter known as serotonin.
This site did not even mention that Sandoz initially introduced LSD as a way to CHEMICALLY INDUCE INSANITY so that science could learn how psychosis is created! They have a long list of “benefits” and then list all that it supposedly helps treat as side effects to LSD! So just like antidepressants it causes what they are telling you the drug treats!!!! See why I always have said it sounds like Eli Lilly pulled out all their old marketing materials on LSD, which they patented the end of February, 1956, to use in marketing their new “slow fuse LSD” in the form of their antidepressants Prozac and Cymbalta?!
Find the link to this website I am responding to below my comments and links to additional information and PLEASE remember in sharing this information to anyone taking one of these drugs that they NEED to know how to wean safely off these drugs or it could be disastrous! So share with them our website www.drugawareness.org so they can see how to get the help they need in doing this. It has been my experience that doctors wean patients WAY TOO FAST as they once did with steroids, not understanding the reasons why safe withdrawal must be so gradual.

MY COMMENT ON THE LSD CONNECTION TO ANTIDEPRESSANTS

“Wow! How did you get hold of Eli Lilly’s old marketing material for LSD?!! That clearly is what this is, right? As they patented the synthetic version of LSD for the CIA to be able to have massive amounts to use in their mind control projects in early 1956.
Wow! How did you get hold of Eli Lilly’s old marketing material for LSD?!! That clearly is what you have posted here, right? But  of course missing from your material here would be that Eli Lilly patented the synthetic version of LSD in early 1956 at the request of the CIA. The CIA wanted massive amounts to use in their mind control projects during the Korean war. (Hmmm…wonder if North Korea’s current leader found one of the CIA’s old stashes of LSD which would certainly explain his behavior! Or perhaps he is just using one of their newer “slow fuse” versions which have a strong effect upon Orientals – explained below.)

LSD WAS ORIGINALLY MARKETED TO CHEMICALLY INDUCE PSYCHOSIS


PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OF THESE SYMPTOMS OF LSD TOXICITY ARE IDENTICAL TO
SEROTONIN SYNDROME WHERE THE SEROTONIN LEVELS BECOME ELEVATED
TO DANGEROUS LEVELS – A SIDE EFFECT OF ALL ANTIDEPRESSANTS…
Also missing is any information on how LSD was used before Lilly’s patent is missing from your post as well. You would think though that most people reading about LSD certainly would want to know that Sandoz Pharmaceutical who first offered LSD (in its natural state – ergot fungus) had it listed as a way to chemically induce insanity so that scientists could see how insanity is caused. Obviously their honest marketing of the drug was a total failure as no one stood in line to take the drug for that reason (Gee I wonder why?!! LOL!)

AFTER ELI LILLY MARKETED LSD IT BECAME A MIRACLE CURE FOR MENTAL ILLNESS

So Lilly with their marketing brilliance and amazing ability to buy medical research ghost written to perfection, (See this example where they bought/bribed the approval of their new “slow fuse” version of LSD, Prozac: (http://www.drugawareness.org/meet-dr-john-virapen-the-man-who-bought-prozacs-approval/) at that point decided to come up with the material you have posted here to promote their latest “Wonder Drug” and had people lining up to take LSD voluntarily! (Apparently all those people lining up to take LSD had trouble comparing the risks to the benefits in order to see the massive discrepancies that showed the drug actually CAUSED everything they were marketing it to treat – or maybe they just never bothered to read the list like patients and their drug pushing/drugged up doctors of today do not read them.)

FAR MORE SPENT BY PHARMA ON MARKETING THAN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Is it any wonder Lilly, as most pharma companies, spend FAR more on marketing than they do on research and development?! $ell, $ell, $ell, is their bottom line! Along with what we MIGHT logically surmise as more sinister motives when considering their history and those with whom they associate.
But now that Lilly has their “slow fuse” version of LSD, their so called “antidepressants” Prozac and Cymbalta, flooding the market over the past three decades, along with all the other Prozac clones (like Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, etc.) society has been able to witness firsthand how well these drugs produce insanity in normal subjects:  www.SSRIstories.NET! So now Sandoz can use this for their far more honest marketing of LSD as a product to chemically induce insanity.

CIA PUBLICLY REQUESTS A NEW DRUG FROM PHARMA AFTER CONGRESS BANNED LSD – HERE COMES PROZAC!

(For additional information on the similarity between LSD and antidepressants you can find that in my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! with a portion of that  information included in the post below including the CIA’s public request for another drug from Pharma after LSD was pulled from the market by Congress banning the drug.)

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.

REMINDER: US SUICIDE RATE AT ALL TIME HIGH – ANYONE SURPRISED???

U.S. Suicide Rate Surges to a 30-Year High

“It’s really stunning to see such a large increase in suicide rates affecting virtually every age group,” said Katherine Hempstead, senior adviser for health care at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

If these statistics say nothing else, they at least make it clear that antidepressants do not work. And apparently the only ones surprised by this are the so called “experts” in suicide who have vested interests in Pharma and are therefore, turning a blind eye to statistics that have been starring them in the face for decades. Anyone familiar with my work on the dangers of antidepressants have expected this for some time now & witnessed it all around them. I encourage you to read this to see how bad it has become and before doing so I am going to share with you the testimonies of two of my good friends who testified to the FDA in 1991 that this was happening as a direct result of Prozac – the mother drug of this whole new generation of SSRI and SNRI antidepressants. We now have dozens of prescription drugs on the market which have warnings that they cause suicide. We have antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, acne medications, asthma medications…the list is so very long! Even Tamiflu was removed from the market in Japan due to the suicides from that drug.

Anyone familiar with my work on the dangers of antidepressants have expected this for some time now & witnessed it all around them. I encourage you to read this to see how bad it has become. but before doing so I want you to see the video testimonies of two of my good friends testifying before the FDA in 1991. They warned that these suicides were increasing drastically as a direct result of Prozac – the mother drug of this whole new generation of SSRI & SNRI antidepressants & atypical antipsychotic drugs.

We now have dozens of prescription drugs on the market which have warnings that they cause suicide. We have antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, acne medications, asthma medications…the list is so very long! Even Tamiflu was removed from the market in Japan due to the suicides from that drug. And about everyone in this country has access to a drug pusher they see regularly who they refer to as their personal physician while nurses share that 75% of the physicians and nurses they work with take antidepressants.

The first in sharing her experience almost three decades ago, in an attempt to prevent this nightmare, is LeAnne Westover, wife of singer Del Shannon (Charles Westover)…please click the following link to watch her testimony…

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Le Anne Westover Testifies of Husband Del Shannon’s Prozac Suicide

Second is Maria Malakoff, a Florida pharmacist, testifying about both her own suicide attempt on Prozac and the suicide of her husband, also a pharmacist. Maria warned the FDA back in 1991 that the day would come that every family in America would be affected by antidepressants if they did not issue warnings back then. Tragically her statement has proved prophetic!

Their pharmacy was the first pharmacy to remove Prozac from their shelves…

U.S. Suicide Rate Surges to a 30-Year High

“It’s really stunning to see such a large increase in suicide rates affecting virtually every age group,” said Katherine Hempstead, senior adviser for health care at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

By SABRINA TAVERNISE
April 22, 2016

WASHINGTON — Suicide in the United States has surged to the highest levels in nearly 30 years, a federal data analysis has found, with increases in every age group except older adults. The rise was particularly steep for women. It was also substantial among middle-aged Americans, sending a signal of deep anguish from a group whose suicide rates had been stable or falling since the 1950s.

The suicide rate for middle-aged women, ages 45 to 64, jumped by 63 percent over the period of the study, while it rose by 43 percent for men in that age range, the sharpest increase for males of any age. The overall suicide rate rose by 24 percent from 1999 to 2014, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, which released the study on Friday.

The increases were so widespread that they lifted the nation’s suicide rate to 13 per 100,000 people, the highest since 1986. The rate rose by 2 percent a year starting in 2006, double the annual rise in the earlier period of the study. In all, 42,773 people died from suicide in 2014, compared with 29,199 in 1999.

Graphic | A Growing, Widespread Toll BY THE NEW YORK TIMES

“It’s really stunning to see such a large increase in suicide rates affecting virtually every age group,” said Katherine Hempstead, senior adviser for health care at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, who has identified a link between suicides in middle age and rising rates of distress about jobs and personal finances.

Researchers also found an alarming increase among girls 10 to 14, whose suicide rate, while still very low, had tripled. The number of girls who killed themselves rose to 150 in 2014 from 50 in 1999. “This one certainly jumped out,” said Sally Curtin, a statistician at the center and an author of the report.

What to Do If You Need Help

American Indians had the sharpest rise of all racial and ethnic groups, with rates rising by 89 percent for women and 38 percent for men. White middle-aged women had an increase of 80 percent.

The rate declined for just one racial group: black men. And it declined for only one age group: men and women over 75.

The data analysis provided fresh evidence of suffering among white Americans. Recent research has highlighted the plight of less educated whites, showing surges in deaths from drug overdoses, suicides,liver disease and alcohol poisoning, particularly among those with a high school education or less. The new report did not break down suicide rates by education, but researchers who reviewed the analysis said the patterns in age and race were consistent with that recent research and painted a picture of desperation for many in American society.

“This is part of the larger emerging pattern of evidence of the links between poverty, hopelessness and health,” said Robert D. Putnam, a professor of public policy at Harvard and the author of “Our Kids,” an investigation of new class divisions in America.

The rise in suicide rates has happened slowly over many years. Federal health researchers said they chose 1999 as the start of the period they studied because it was a low point in the national suicide rate and they wanted to cover the full period of its recent sustained rise.

The federal health agency’s last major report on suicide, released in 2013, noted a sharp increase in suicide among 35- to 64-year-olds. But the rates have risen even more since then — up by 7 percent for the entire population since 2010, the end of the last study period — and federal researchers said they issued the new report to draw attention to the issue.

Policy makers say efforts to prevent suicide across the country are spotty. While some hospitals and health systems screen for suicidal thinking and operate good treatment programs, many do not.

“We have more and more effective treatments, but we have to figure out how to bake them into health care systems so they are used more automatically,” said Dr. Jane Pearson, chairwoman of the National Institute of Mental Health’s Suicide Research Consortium, which oversees the National Institutes of Health funding for suicide prevention research. “We’ve got bits and pieces, but we haven’t really put them all together yet.”

She noted that while N.I.H. funding for suicide prevention projects had been relatively flat — rising to $25 million in 2016 from $22 million in 2012 — it was a small fraction of funding for research of mental illnesses, including mood disorders like depression.

The new federal analysis noted that the methods of suicide were changing. About one in four suicides in 2014 involved suffocation, which includes hanging and strangulation, compared with fewer than one in five in 1999. Suffocation deaths are harder to prevent because nearly anyone has access to the means, Ms. Hempstead said. And while the share of suicides involving guns declined — guns went from being involved in 37 percent of female suicides to 31 percent, and from 62 percent to 55 percent for men — the total number of gun suicides increased..

The question of what has driven the increases is unresolved, leaving experts to muse on the reasons.

Julie Phillips, a professor of sociology at Rutgers who has studied suicide among middle-aged Americans, said social changes could be raising the risks. Marriage rates have declined, particularly among less educated Americans, while divorce rates have risen, leading to increased social isolation, she said. She calculated that in 2005, unmarried middle-aged men were 3.5 times more likely than married men to die from suicide, and their female counterparts were as much as 2.8 times more likely to kill themselves. The divorce rate has doubled for middle-aged and older adults since the 1990s, she said.

Disappointed expectations of social and economic well-being among less educated white men from the baby-boom generation may also be playing a role, she said. They grew up in an era that valued “masculinity and self-reliance” — characteristics that could get in the way of asking for help.

“It appears this group isn’t seeking help but rather turning to self-destructive means of dealing with their despair,” Professor Phillips said.

Another possible explanation: an economy that has eaten away at the prospects of families on the lower rungs of the income ladder.

Dr. Alex Crosby, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said he had studied the association between economic downturns and suicide going back to the 1920s and found that suicide was highest when the economy was weak. One of the highest rates in the country’s modern history, he said, was in 1932, during the Great Depression, when the rate was 22.1 per 100,000, about 70 percent higher than in 2014.

“There was a consistent pattern,” he said, which held for all ages between 25 and 64. “When the economy got worse, suicides went up, and when it got better, they went down.”

But other experts pointed out that the unemployment rate had been declining in the latter period of the study, and questioned how important the economy was to suicide.

The gap in suicide rates for men and women has narrowed because women’s rates are increasing faster than men’s. But men still kill themselves at a rate 3.6 times that of women. Though suicide rates for older adults fell over the period of the study, men over 75 still have the highest suicide rate of any age group — 38.8 per 100,000 in 2014, compared with just four per 100,000 for their female counterparts.


MEDICATION: RECENTLY RELEASED PSYCH PATIENT DECAPITATES WOMAN, TWO DOGS, ATTEMPTS SUICIDE

ABC15 Arizona

This case today in Phoenix (see video of news report below) is a de-ja-vu scenario of the 1991 Kevin Kohlenberg case from my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! Like Kevin, after killing his German girlfriend in France, he spent hours butchering himself. (We know that because he recorded it all.) He too amputated his right hand with a dull kitchen knife using his left hand even though he was right handed and also gouged his eye out over many hours of multilating himself – all this from being prescribed Prozac for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome! The French investigators concluded this was not a murder/suicide but was the direct result of an American medication, Prozac.

Kevin came from a wealthy family and was in Europe setting up an orphanage for African children. One was set up in his memory after his death. His mother bravely stood before the FDA in September of 1991 to tell his story and share what French investigators concluded in Kevin’s case. Yet at that time, in spite of all the evidence, the FDA committee put no restrictions on Prozac, nor did they pull the drug from the market as they should have, thus allowing the introduction of all the Prozac clones the world has been plagued with since. So we continue to live this serotonin nightmare as it is repeated over and over and over again in every neighborhood in this country as we also watch it spread around the world!

IT IS THE MEDICATION CAUSING THE VIOLENCE!

I REPEAT, IT IS THE SO CALLED “MEDICATION” THAT IS CAUSING SUCH VIOLENCE!!!! LSD and PCP mimich serotonin to produce the violence we see with those drugs. These drugs produce similar results as they increase serotonin levels over time!

Take a look at this list of 5000 cases and you will find nearly every school shooting and mass shooting: www.ssristories.NET

If that is not enough for people to understand this drug-induced nightmare they should listen to this boy talk about taking a gun to school: http://www.drugawareness.org/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1/

And you can find more about how these drugs produce such violence by going to our main website at www.drugawareness.org ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Please share all these links because after testifying in these cases for 25 years it scares the you know what out of me to know what I know about antidepressants and other serotonergic drugs!!!!!

Another frightening aspect of this case is the reporter’s name, Kim Tobin. It sounds too much like Tim Tobin the husband left behind in the Donald Schell case. Tim sued Glaxo (Tobin vs Glaxo) for Paxil causing the mass murder/suicide that took the lives of his wife and infant daughter. He won the case and it became the inspiration for the movie “Cake” with Jennifer Aniston.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A DEADLY SLEEP DISORDER

KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin has long been known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide coupled with extreme out of character violence. See this study out of the University of Southern California which makes it very clear that the key to human violence is triggered by an excess of serotonin:  http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Mother Kills Two Sons & Attempts Suicide – Tucker Moneymaker

TuckerMoneymaker

On April 5, 1991, after only 21 days on Prozac Tucker Moneymaker’s wife Sandra, 36, shot and killed their two sons, David Lee, 8, and William, 16, while they slept before shooting herself twice in the abdomen in a suicide attempt. The bottle of Prozac was found in the room with them. Tucker had left for work at 7:00 AM and returned at 8:37 AM to find the boys dead and his wife bleeding and unconscious. Read below for the scientific data on how Prozac can cause murder/suicide.

Here is the video of Tucker Moneymaker testimony before the FDA hearing (FDA Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Hearing) September 20, 1991:

And here is the text of Tucker Moneymaker’s testimony to the FDA on September 20, 1991:

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION

FDA Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Hearings

DR. CASEY: Thank you. Tucker Moneymaker, please?

MR. MONEYMAKER: Thank you. On behalf of myself and thousands of other citizens in the states of North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, of which I happen to be the Prozac Survivor Director for these three states, I want to say thank you for allowing the public to come up here and speak and voice their opinion about this dangerous drug.

I also want to tell everybody that these are real stories, real people. This is not something written down on a piece of paper, something somebody wrote up somewhere. These are real things that are happening.

My story is also real. It’s just a real nightmare, something I have to live with every day. I had two sons, David Lee, age 8, and Billy, 16, a wife of 20 years, is all gone. I’ll tell you why. In March of this year my wife, Sandra, had some nerve problems. She was asked to go be evaluated. The doctor put her on Prozac. He told her she was depressed because she was having nerve problems.

Now, I want you to keep this in mind, how my wife was, just a little short story. My wife was the kind of mother that always put the kids first. She would take her kids back and forth to school every day. My 8-year-old never rode a school bus. My wife was tied up in the church, tied up in Cub Scouts and room mother at school.

I heard these people talking about scientific data. I want to show them some scientific data. This is scientific data right here. I want you all to look at it. This is scientific data for those who say we don’t have scientific data.

I haven’t slept but about two hours since Sunday.

I want to apologize if I sound a little shaky. After being on Prozac for 21 days, my wife shot and killed both of these two boys right here. She turned the gun on herself and shot herself herself twice. Now she’s in jail for murder.

This is the kind of lady that never took a drug, no mixed drinks, no alcohol, no reason to be depressed, just some nerve problems, like everybody has from time to time. I’m depressed. I’ve got legitimate reason to be depressed. I want to ask you all, don’t let this happen to anybody else. These are real people. You know, these murders and things are senseless. It’s time to put a stop to it.

Thank you.

HOW ANTIDEPRESSANTS CAN PRODUCE MURDER AND SUICIDE:

There are several ways. First of all they impair the metabolism of serotonin so that serotonin will build up in the synapse. And we were suppose to believe that was beneficial. But take a look at this research from the University of Southern California on excess serotonin producing extreme violence: http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

Another way it can be done is by inducing the REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) – a state in which one acts out nightmares and which has long been known to include both impulsive murder and suicide. At this point 86% of those being diagnosed with this disorder are taking antidepressants. Because of the time of day this case happened it would most likely be triggered by RBD.

Another way they can induce this type of violence is by chemically inducing a manic psychosis. In the beginning of the SSRI antidepressant era psychiatrists refused to prescribe Prozac due to its strong ability to induce mania/Bipolar Disorder. That is far from the case now though.

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Le Anne Westover Testifies of Husband Del Shannon’s Prozac Suicide

Le Anne Westover - Dell Shannon

Le Anne Westover & Husband, Charles (Del Shannon)

Everyone needs to hear these testimonies presented to the FDA in September of 1991 on the subject antidepressants causing suicide and violence. The FDA chose to ignore these testimonies that day leading to many more deaths since. My dear friend featured here, Le Anne Westover, lost her husband Charles, also known as the popular singer Del Shannon, in only two weeks to a violent Prozac-induced suicide. His senseless death, along with so many others documented both in these testimonies and this database www.ssristories.NET should NEVER be forgotten!!!

Please listen to Le Anne’s testimony here:
https://youtu.be/FiF4Pd6rat8

The following is a transcript of LeAnne’s testimony to the FDA that day:

DR. CASEY: Next is Mrs. Del Shannon, please.

MS. SHANNON: Lee Ann Westover.

DR. CASEY: Excuse me, are you Mrs. Del Shannon?

MS. SHANNON: I am Mrs. Del Shannon, yes. I am the widow Del Shannon. My husband 1990. On the evening of of Charles Westover, also known as was given Prozac on January 24 of February 8, 1990, he killed himself. I am told his death was instantaneous, but I believe his death actually began the moment he took his first dose of Prozac.

Before Prozac, my husband was very involved with people, our family, and his work. He was very much in charge of his business. But within days after he started taking Prozac I noticed a personality change in him. He showed signs of restlessness, akathisia, agitation, pacing, and his appearance was very drawn. He developed severe insomnia, extreme fatigue, chills, racing heart, dry mouth, and upset stomach. His hands would shake uncontrollably at times.

This really alarmed him. I would ask him what was wrong and his only reply was, “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

At this time my husband’s career was better than ever. He was just finishing a new album and was at his utmost creative peak. Many good things were happening in his life.

On January 24, he saw a doctor for counseling, as changes were happening rapidly. Due to these changes, he went to a doctor because he was experiencing some stress. He was given Prozac. Two weeks later I found him dead in our home. He told me, when he came home from the doctor, that he was given a new drug, “It’s not even a drug, it’s a chemical, it’s very safe. It’s supposed to help me over the hump I’m in.” The drug was Prozac.

Charles was very much against suicide. He counseled people against suicide. To him, and I quote “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” I want you to know suicide was totally out of character for my husband.

There was no note. The day he died he had made appointments for afternoon and evening. He had booked future and no kiss goodbye.

On February 8, my daughter and I were going to the market. He asked for some vitamins and other items that he wanted from the market. He kissed me, smiled, and we said, “See you later.” There was absolutely no warning of suicide or anything violent.

I know with absolute certainty that if Charles had any idea of the side effects of Prozac he would never have taken it. This drug is most assuredly responsible for any torment or suffering and the eventual suicide of my husband. I want people to be aware of what can happen when you take this drug Prozac.

Thank you.

DR CASEY : Thank you.

Rest in Peace Del…you are not forgotten!

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Suicide & Suicide Attempt by Pharmacist Maria Malakoff

Maria Malakoff

Maria warned back in 1991 that the day would come that every family in America would be affected by antidepressants if the FDA did not issue warnings. Tragically her statement has proved prophetic!

I would like to introduce you to my dear friend Maria Malakoff. Everyone needs to hear her testimony. Maria and her husband Gary were both pharmacists. Both were placed on Prozac about the same time for different reasons. Maria first attempted suicide on Prozac, stopped the drug, and began warning Gary of the dangers. He thought he was fine until one day out of the blue he stood in front of her and their four children while they were watching TV, and shot himself. Their full story can be found in the book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? available at www.drugawareness.org

Hear Maria’s testimony before the 1991 FDA panel on Prozac and suicide here: https://youtu.be/A3XiFW9VWYc

Gotta Love It!!!! Great New Stress Therapy Video!

2015-05-24-19-45-39

Baby Blue with her favorite food – a red pepper!

Thank you for sharing this video Steffan T Bruyns! This is exactly why in the front of my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare!, I quoted my children who turned to me years ago and asked “Gee Mom, why do people use Prozac when all they need is a puppy?” And this is also why in the beginning of every lecture I give on antidepressants I pull a surprise out of my bag as I introduce my own antidepressant, my little two pound Chihuahua, Baby Blue 🙂  I can testify that Baby Blue has brought far more smiles to people’s faces in her five years than all antidepressants put together have over the decades they have been on the market! That is especially so when she moves and they realize they are looking at a real live dog instead of a stuffed animal. 🙂

And before her it was her uncle Kito who accompanied us to DC to march in front of the White House in August of 2005 wearing one of the bumper stickers Mark Taylor from Columbine designed for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness with the statement: WARNING! Antidepressants Kill!

Now watch this new stress therapy video…you will LOVE it! Just click this link:
