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.

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.

You can see that news piece here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlLiAfiueo4&list=UUo-6uMPDOtwaPe1ec3Rhr3A

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.

ANTIDEPRESSANT WITHDRAWAL: Mother’s Baby Missing: Arizona

Paragraphs four through six read:  “”She should have
sought professional help. She did seek help for post partum
depression and she was on medication and during that
time she seemed a lot more mellow and everything was better,” Bob Johnson said.

But she stopped taking that medication shortly before she
hopped in Bob Johnson’s car with 8-month-old Gabriel and headed to Texas.

The baby was last seen in San Antonio in December with his 23-year-old
mother, who allegedly told Loagn McQueary, her ex-boyfriend, that she’d killed their baby.

SSRI Stories note:  Withdrawal, especially abrupt withdrawal, from any of these
medications can cause severe neuropsychiatric and physical symptoms. It is
important to withdraw extremely slowly from these drugs, often over a period of
a year or more, under the supervision of a qualified and experienced specialist,
if available.
Withdrawal is sometimes more severe than the original
symptoms or problems.

Johnson’s Grandfather Thinks She’s Lying

Bob Johnson Still Believes Baby Gabriel Is Alive

Pat McReynolds
Reporter,
KPHO.com

POSTED: 10:26 pm MST January 6, 2010
UPDATED: 6:43 am MST
January 7, 2010

TEMPE, Ariz. — Bob Johnson said his
granddaughter, Elizabeth, has always been secretive.

“If she didn’t want
you to know something, you ain’t gonna find out,” Johnson said.

He said
moving in and out of five foster homes as a child made her that way. But he said
the straight “A” student also developed an irrational temper that led to bouts
of rage.

“She should have sought professional help. She did seek help
for post partum depression and she was on medication and during that time she
seemed a lot more mellow and everything was better,” Bob Johnson said.

But she stopped taking that medication shortly before she hopped in Bob
Johnson’s car with 8-month-old Gabriel and headed to Texas.

The baby was
last seen in San Antonio in December with his 23-year-old mother, who allegedly
told Loagn McQueary, her ex-boyfriend, that she’d killed their baby.

Elizabeth Johnson was arrested last week in Florida on suspicion of
custodial interference after she didn’t show up for a custodial hearing.

“She had this cockamamie idea that she was going to change her Social
Security number and name and his Social Security number and name and run
forever,” Bob Johnson said.

Instead, in an exclusive interview with CBS
5, Elizabeth Johnson said she simply gave Gabriel to a couple she met in a park.

“I trusted them. I believe in my heart they’re good people,” said
Elizabeth Johnson on the phone from jail.

But her grandfather doesn’t
buy it. He tried to envision her scenario.

‘Oh by the way, how would you
like to have a baby, oh it’s free, yeah it’s free,’ Bob Johnson said. “That’s
hard. That’s hard to really believe, but it’s a simple story. It’s a story that
you can repeat without stumbling.”

The last time Bob Johnson saw Gabriel
was when the whole family got together for Thanksgiving. He has pictures of
Elizabeth Johnson posing with the boy’s father, Logan McQueary.

“She’s
the sweet Elizabeth,” Bob Johnson said when pointing to a picture of her
smiling.

He thinks she gave Gabriel to a family in Texas, and is lying
now so the boy will never be found. But she has threatened to harm the child,
and Bob Johnson wonders if her past and her struggles with self control
eventually got the best of her.

“It’s possible that in a moment of
anger, depression, whatever, that she carried out her threat. I don’t even want
to think about it because, what a waste. What a waste,” said Bob Johnson.

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Makes Teenage Girl Angry All the Time: Massachusetts

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy (www.drugawareness.org):

How tragic that this poor young woman would have to turn to
the Dear Abby column (or whatever they call it now) for help with this! Why
would her own doctor not know enough to explain to her that this antidepressant
is causing her blood sugar to drop producing adrenalin rushes as the body’s
attempt to normalize sugar? Since adrenalin is your fight or flight hormone it
is no wonder she is angry all the time and no wonder it affects relationships as
the patients become meaner and meaner when they cannot control their blood sugar
levels due to the effects of these drugs.

You ask if she has been screened for diabetes? I may not show
up yet, but soon will with her pancreas experiencing that strong of a negative
effect from the antidepressant. This is a very bright young woman to be able to
notice what effect this drug is having upon her. And her mother may change her
mind about having her daughter take the antidepressant when her daughter
violently attacks her in a rage produced by the drug! What a shame her
mother is not listening to her as she cries out for help knowing what
violence the drugs are causing her to be capable of, yet frightened to verbalize
those horribly violent thoughts previously so completely foreign to
her.
__________________________________
Last part of paragraph two reads:  ” However, the
antidepressant causes me to be uncontrollably angry
all the time.
I also don’t sleep well when I take it, which just adds to
my irritability. It has gotten so bad that it has started to affect my
relationships with friends and family.”

Teen frets taking her antidepressants

By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar
November 30, 2009 12:00
AM

Dear Annie: I am a 16-year-old girl who still wets the bed. I have
tried everything from wearing an alarm to taking medication.

I am now on
a prescription that works by telling my kidneys to stop producing urine,
although it doesn’t work all the time. A urologist prescribed an antidepressant

that prevents me from sleeping too deeply. With the combination of these two
medicines, I no longer wet the bed. However, the antidepressant causes me to be
uncontrollably angry all the time. I also don’t sleep well when I take it, which
just adds to my irritability. It has gotten so bad that it has started to affect
my relationships with friends and family.

My mom wants me to keep taking
it because it works. But, Annie, I don’t like being angry all the time, and I
don’t want to be on medication for the rest of my life. What can I
do?

­ At a Loss

Dear At a Loss: Most teens with enuresis are
exceedingly deep sleepers, and many also have a small bladder, exacerbating the

problem. We assume you have been screened for diabetes and a genetic link, and
that you don’t drink alcohol. Many sufferers do well with a moisture-sensor
alarm, and we’re sorry that doesn’t work for you. The other common treatment is
the medication you currently are using. However, since you are having unpleasant
side effects, please discuss this with your doctor. It’s possible your dosage
can be altered so you can still get the benefits without such a big emotional
swing. Also discuss exercises to strengthen and enlarge your bladder. For more
information and to keep abreast of new developments, contact the National Kidney
Foundation (kidney.org) at 1-888-WAKE-DRY

DEPRESSION MED: Rage: Elderly Man Beats & Bites his Doctor: England

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy:

I ask you to think of the biting attack by the chimpanzee
as you read this case. Alsothink of the case mentioned in my book of the Sanford
Professor who bit her mother to death while on Prozac. Biting is known to
be produced by high serotonin levels.
One other thing to take note of is the fact that it took three
doctors to hold this elderly man down during the attack. There is another drug
that produces that type of super human strength – PCP, the drug I constantly
remind the world that SSRIs most closely mimic in action.
_________________________________
Paragraphs six through nine read:  “The appeal court
heard Moya suffered from a number of medical conditions, including
anxiety, depression and a personality
disorder.”

After his fit of rage in October 2008, it took three
doctors to hold Moya down,
before police arrived to arrest
him.

Mr Justice Davis, giving his judgement on the appeal, said Moya
claimed not to have taken his medication at the time of the
attack and claimed this had contributed to his loss of control.

But the
judge concluded: “This was a serious matter involving quite a lengthy assault on one doctor and an assault on another

doctor.

Elderly man who bit doctor must stay in jail

A PENSIONER who bit his doctor and punched
him in the face in front of “scared” patients will have to serve a year behind
bars.

Gabriel Moya, 69, flew into a rage at a receptionist at Gossops
Green Surgery, when she handed him a prescription he thought was
incomplete.

Moya, who has had heart surgery in the past, was told to calm
down by a doctor but lashed out, punching him twice in the face and biting him
on the arm as he was pinned to the floor.

The pensioner, of Woldhurstlea
Close, Gossops Green, was jailed after admitting an assault charge at a court
hearing earlier this year, but he appealed his sentence.

However, the
Court of Appeal has now ruled that Moya must serve his 12-month jail
term.

The appeal court heard Moya suffered from a number of medical
conditions, including anxiety, depression and a personality
disorder.

After his fit of rage in October 2008, it took three doctors to
hold Moya down, before police arrived to arrest him.

Mr Justice Davis,
giving his judgement on the appeal, said Moya claimed not to have taken his

medication at the time of the attack and claimed this had contributed to his
loss of control.

But the judge concluded: “This was a serious matter
involving quite a lengthy assault on one doctor and an assault on another
doctor.

“The first doctor was bitten as well as punched. Those in the
waiting room were scared.

“Doctors and medical staff need to be protected
from unwarranted attacks of this kind.

“We are not persuaded that it can
be said that this sentence was excessive.”

Moya pleaded guilty to assault
occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault at Lewes Crown Court in April,
where he was handed a 12-month jail term.

The appeal hearing took place
on Monday.

Mark Taylor’s testimony before the FDA 9/13/2004

I am Mark Allen Taylor and I am a victim of the SSRI antidepressant era. I took six to thirteen bullets in the heart area in the Columbine High School shooting when Eric Harris on Luvox opened fire that now infamous day.

They almost had to amputate my leg and my arm. My heart missed by only one millimeter. I had three surgeries. Five years later I am still recuperating.

I went through all this to realize that SSRI antidepressants are dangerous for those who take them and for all those who associate with those who take them.

I hope that my testimony today shows you that you need to take action immediately before more innocent people like me, and you, do not get hurt or die horrible deaths as a result.

As Americans we should have the right to feel safe and if you were doing your job we would be safe. Why are we worrying about terrorists in other countries when the pharmaceutical companies have proven to be our biggest terrorists by releasing these drugs on an unsuspecting public?

How are we suppose to feel safe at school, at home, on the street, at church or anywhere else if we cannot trust the FDA to do what we are paying you to do? Where were you when I and all of my classmates got shot at Columbine?

You say that antidepressants are effective. So why did they not help Eric Harris before he shot me?

According to Eric they “helped” him to feel homicidal and suicidal after only six weeks on Zoloft. And then he said that dropping off Luvox cold turkey would help him “fuel the rage” he needed to shoot everyone. But he continued on Luvox and shot us all anyway.

So, why did these so called antidepressants not make him better? I will tell you why. It is because they do not work.

We should consider antidepressants to be accomplices to murder.

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!

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!
