CYMBALTA: Canadian Man in Bathrobe Kills One, Wounds One At Election Celebration

Richard Bain Arrest

“It’s totally different from my character. All my life I worked and helped other people.”

Please read at least this part of this article to see how this poor man became so manic on Cymbalta. Why did no one catch such blatantly obvious manic behavior, indicating a serious toxic reaction to this drug, BEFORE this fatal tragedy?!! If it was subtle hypomanic behavior that would be one thing but this is clearly extreme manic behavior with the wild spending, wild promiscuous behavior, cravings for alcohol, etc. For more information on this antidepressant side effect see my 2006 presentation to the FDA, my DVD “Bipolar, Are You Misdiagnosed Due to the Use of or Abrupt Discontinuation of an Antidepressant? and come to our Facebook group Antidepressant-Induced Bipolar and Schizophrenia:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1605446559734283/

BLAMES ANTIDEPRESSANT CYMBALTA

“Richard Bain claimed that he was a responsible, hard-working, caring person but his character changed after taking the anti-depressant Cymbalta in 2009.

“He said he broke off a 20-year relationship with his girlfriend and began visiting strip bars every night, hiring prostitutes and quickly burning through an inheritance and savings of $900,000.

“He told the court he spent a lot of money on “limousines, the best of wine, champagne, strippers.”

“With Cymbalta, you don’t think correctly,” he testified later. “I had all the energy in the world. Things come to my mind and I do it. You don’t think things out. It makes you not responsible.”

“He said video footage of him at the shooting scene wearing a blue bathrobe and ski mask, yelling “The English are waking up,” as police led him away, was unrecognizable. “It’s totally different from my character. All my life I worked and helped other people,” he said. Asked what could explain the change, he said: “To me it was the medications.”

“Bain testified that he had no memory of opening fire outside the celebrations. As the defence opened at his trial for the first-degree murder of lighting technician Denis Blanchette and the attempted murder of stagehand David Courage….

“On Sept. 4, 2012, provincial election day, Bain testified that he drove to Montreal to visit his sister-in-law in hospital and he became upset because she was suffering while she waited for an operation. As he was leaving at around 6:30 p.m., he asked his brother where the Metropolis concert hall was, because he heard that the PQ election-night party would be there. He said he decided to take a look out of curiosity, and he drove by it in his GMC Yukon three times before leaving. That, he told the jury, is where his memory of the day ends. He said his sister-in-law’s suffering affected him deeply.

AN ADDITIONAL EIGHT PILLS CONSUMED BEFORE SHOOTING?!!!

“My depression that day came over me like a wave,” he testified. He said that in addition to his regular dose of one 60 mg Cymbalta capsule taken in the morning, he downed at least eight more after leaving the hospital.

“Shown video footage of his vehicle arriving behind the Metropolis shortly before midnight, of a figure leaving the vehicle and approaching the concert hall’s rear entrance and of his subsequent arrest as police pinned him to the ground, he said he had no memory of the events.”

This reminds me so much of one of the very first cases I worked on in the early 90’s. A teen in Florida living with a couple of friends had become depressed and knew that one of his friends had a bottle of Zoloft sitting on top of the fridge she had decided she did not want to take. He knew it was for depression so he took one to see if it would help. When he did not feel less depressed after 15 minutes he took another, and after 15 more minutes he took another.

After taking eight pills he has no memory of what happened. But the official police record shows that he met a homeless man and stabbed him 100 times with a screwdriver. Last I knew he was given a sentence of life in prison for murder.

It is just so sad that such dangerous drugs are prescribed so freely and with so little concern and are sitting around people’s homes where anyone has access to them with little to no warning of how deadly they can be!!!

Diagnosed With Schizophrenia at 17, Las Vegas Man Kills Mother & Sister

Darius Sorrells

Darrius Sorrells (30)

Diagnosed schizophrenic at 17, Darris Sorrells’ sister awoke a week earlier to him standing over her with a crow bar, a week later she was dead in a bloody confrontation that somewhere along the line of events involved knives and a bloody chain saw and body parts in a fridge.

[Keep in mind that schizophrenia is a condition of elevated serotonin and which meds increase serotonin? Antidepressants. Osama Bin Laden’s son has been diagnosed schizophrenic due to his use of antidepressants. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/3047072/Omar-bin-Ladens-wife-on-why-they-split-up.html See just how many clues pointing to antidepressant use you have here from this interview with the friends.]

“Neighbors and family friends also indicated mental health issues involving Darius Sorrells.

“In the report, police said a family friend was contacted a week before by Natasha Sorrells who said she woke up to her brother holding a crow bar over her. The call prompted the first welfare check which was made on March 28 after the friend’s calls to Natasha Sorrells went unanswered.

“In investigating Darius Sorrells for the deaths, police found a hardware store receipt dated March 28 for a chainsaw inside the SUV involved in the chase.

“In an interview, Darius Sorrells claimed memory loss of every event before his arrest on March 29. He also refused to speak any further with investigators.

“The report said he showed no emotion when he was told he was being booked for the deaths of his mother and sister”.

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!

Tortured Like A Lab Rat for 17 Years – Zyprexa and Zeldox

Tortured Like A Lab Rat for 17 Years – Zyprexa and Zeldox
vaquous
Courage Grows Strong at a Wound
Paula ”vaquous” Stewart
The following was written in July 2011 – I was in a state of panic and very, very ill.
I was very tired and I had not eaten properly for days – this was in 1994. I went to a restaurant with my sister and had an argument. I decided to leave the restaurant abruptly (Basha on Guy). I walked so fast that my sister Sylvia did not see me All I remember is walking quickly and I ended up on a “bridge” where I collapsed. I then remember being in a vehicle and being driven somewhere – I did not know by whom or where I was being driven to.
The next thing I remember is being dragged into a hospital in Richelieu by armed Police and then placed in restraints in this hospital. I was eventually transferred to the Montreal General Hospital (MGH) once they realized that I had my own apartment in Downtown Montreal.
I was taken to the 4th floor of the hospital, unconscious. They injected me with Haldol. My mother who lived in Chambly took a bus to find me at the hospital. They told her that I had Schizophrenia and that it was a debilitating disease. Therefore, I would not be able to take care of myself. They then tried to coerce her to sign documents to place me into a Group Home. My Mother was in shock over the condition her daughter was in. They never explained in detail why they felt I needed to be in a Group Home — she flatly refused to sign any documents.
They gave me pills, took my blood, imposed all kinds of rules on me that I had to follow, in order to be released – They never gave me a release date even though I asked. They kept me in the Psyche Ward for three months against my will. If my Mother did not pay my rent and all of my other bills for the three months, I would have been homeless at the time of release.
I was then forced to take medication for 17 years against my will — forced to participate in Therapy sessions with two Medical Teams from the MGH and now at the Allen Memorial Institute without signing any documents. Occupational Therapy, Collective Kitchen, Group Therapy, individual counselling — all against my will. The Medication they gave me was so strong that I was sleeping on average 12-14 hours a day. My vision was blurred, I was dizzy, forced onto Welfare and with little money – not eating well and I could not work for long stretches of time— for years.
They say that I have Paranoid Schizophrenia and then the changed my diagnosis to Schizoaffective Disorder without explanation. On many, many occasions I have asked my Medical Team to show me empirical proof that I indeed have these DSM disorders. They told me that there is no empirical proof- no scientific test. Then I asked them, repeatedly “so how do you know I have this condition?” No answer. I have asked them to observe me without the neuroleptics and to just offer me “talk therapy” instead– they all flatly refused. I was also told that there were no natural ways to treat Schizophrenia (See two lists of references from the Harm Reduction Guide to Coming Off Psyciatric Drugs)
Dr. V also mentioned to me, while my social worker was present, that “all neuroleptics are all basically the same with different side-effects.” — This was said after I told him that I wanted to stop taking these Meds (Zeldox), because I was getting sicker and sicker. He down-played my concerns, although the Zeldox pamphlet mentions to discuss with your health professional if you have any side effects — I have had over ten side effects listed on their Zeldox Website!
I almost died this year and it was a wake-up call to take action –TO SAVE MY LIFE!
There is a long list of side effects of Zyprexa and Zeldox and many are life threatening (sudden death is one). I told my medical team that I wanted to stop all medication. They denied me my Civil Rights and my Human Rights for 17 years and to this day continue to prevent me from stopping Zeldox. I have never given INFORMED CONSENT for any treatment I have received or which has been imposed on me over the past 17 or more years.
Because I have been on neuroleptics and atypical anti-psychotics for so long, I will probably need to withdraw over a two-year period — this is very painful and they never mentioned that I could become so dependant when they administered it to me.
I feel sick daily and have been sent for tests recently, due to my poor health because of this drug (Zeldox).
NOW, NOVEMBER 2011:
I have stopped all psychiatric medications– permanently.
I lost lots of weight and I have gained my physical and emotional
strength back… I am still working through the trauma:)
I have filed written complaints with the Ombudsman, Employers of my abusers and
Patient’s Rights Groups– I have deposited the written complaints on November 7th, 2011
I am preparing my SHIELD ALERT with MindFreedomInternational.org
I have become a Psyche Rights Activist !
THERE IS LIFE AFTER ABUSE AND AFTER BEING LABELLED BY THE MENTAL HEALTH INDUSTRY!!!
I AM THE 99%
HOLD ON …..AND RAGE ON!!!
Finally, I want to say the following:
Although I was forced-drugged for 17 years, I still am an eternal optimist and I have hope for my future.
I also have lots of love in my life (No money to speak of :(…but love)
I am very smart, happy and ready to make a big difference in the World.
I DON’T WANT PEOPLE READING THIS TO GIVE UP.
Some of us are now disabled —we have permanent damage to our brains and our souls—but it is not over….share your experiences.
People will learn from you and guard themselves from these evil, evil men and women who have chosen a profession of torture and abuse.
Don’t defend or support your abusers…Find people who understand you and gain strength through your union with them:)
The title, ”Courage grows strong at a wound” is Paula’s ”Stewart clan” Motto.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Man Assaults his Mother: England

Paragraphs 9 & 10 read:  “Mr Roberts said Turton did have an issue with depression and was on medicationfor it, and mixing it with alcohol had a bad effect.”

“Chairman of the magistrates Keith Stokes-Smith said:  ‘It was an extremely vicious attack,’ and said he had  ‘breached the trust’  with his mother when she had genuinely been trying to help him.”

SSRI Stories Note:  The Physicians Desk Reference states that antidepressants can cause a craving for alcohol and alcohol abuse. Also, the liver cannot metabolize the antidepressant and the alcohol simultaneously,  thus leading to higher levels of both alcohol and the antidepressant in the human body.

Drunken son attacked his own mum

4:00pm Friday 28th August 2009

By Claire Fry »

A DRUNK son who rained punches on his mother after she refused to give him his medication has been jailed by magistrates.

Jason Turton pinned his mother to a chair and punched her repeatedly after she had told him he could not take his medication for depression and schizophrenia as they would react badly with the alcohol.

Turton, of Hollymount Road, Tolladine, had been out drinking on Monday, August 24, from about 10.15am but when he got back at about 6pm the incident happened.

Matt Dodson, prosecuting, said the 23-year-old began shouting for his tablets before pinning her down in a seat and punched her in the face, demanding to know where the medication was hidden. When she managed to get away, she escaped to a neighbour’s house, and police arrived to find her face covered in blood.

In interview, Mr Dodson said Turton realised his mother had been trying to “look after his best interests” and his reaction had been very wrong.

Turton admitted the charge of actual bodily harm when he appeared before city magistrates.

In mitigation, Nick Roberts said Turton was sorry and upset at what had happened.

“He has realised the relationship between mother and son has broken down and that would be something he would have to come to terms with and deal with in due course,” he added.

Mr Roberts said Turton did have an issue with depression and was on medication for it, and mixing it with alcohol had a bad effect.

Chairman of the magistrates Keith Stokes-Smith said: “It was an extremely vicious attack,” and said he had “breached the trust” with his mother when she had genuinely been trying to help him.

He was sentenced to 26 weeks in custody.
