STUDY: Antidepressants Associated With Significantly Elevated Risk Of Death, Strokes & Heart Attacks

For anyone who has read my book with all the information on the damaging physical effects of elevated serotonin along with the research ordered by Eli Lilly on Prozac demonstrating that antidepressants drastically increase the level of cortisol, known as the “death hormone” will not be surprised by the results of this study. They will only be surprised, as am I, that it would take over two decades for the damaging results of this effect to hit mainstream news especially when Lilly’s own research demonstrated back then that a dose as low as 30mg of Prozac doubled the level of cortisol with only one single dose!

Antidepressant Users Have 33% Higher Risk of Death

And 14% Higher Risk of Stroke or Heart Attack

The results of this new study out just days ago, on September 14, 2017, found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users and they also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks! (Please note that a study involving “hundreds of thousands” is an absolutely massive number for a research study to include.) “The researchers reviewed studies involving hundreds of thousands of people and found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users. Antidepressant users also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks. The findings were published today in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.”

 

Serotonin Toxicity – Serotonin Syndrome

Anyone familiar with the mode of death produced by too much serotonin, a toxic condition known as Serotonin Syndrome, should be aware that the high levels of serotonin, which accumulate from the Serotonin Reuptake Inhibition process, produce death by shutting down multiple major organs. Keeping that in mind please look at this quote about this research: “It’s widely known that brain serotonin affects mood, and that most commonly used antidepressant treatment for depression blocks the absorption of serotonin by neurons. It is less widely known, though, that all the major organs of the body—the heart, kidneys, lungs, liver—use serotonin from the bloodstream. Antidepressants [Along with any other drug that has Serotonin Reuptake Inhibiting Properties] block the absorption of serotonin in these organs as well, and the researchers warn that antidepressants could increase the risk of death by preventing multiple organs from functioning properly.”

Antidepressants associated with significantly elevated risk of death, researchers find

September 14, 2017

Antidepressant medications, most commonly prescribed to reduce depression and anxiety, increase the risk of death, according to new findings by a McMaster-led team of researchers.

It’s widely known that brain serotonin affects mood, and that most commonly used antidepressant treatment for depression blocks the absorption of serotonin by neurons. It is less widely known, though, that all the major organs of the body—the heart, kidneys, lungs, liver—use serotonin from the bloodstream.

Antidepressants block the absorption of serotonin in these organs as well, and the researchers warn that antidepressants could increase the risk of death by preventing multiple organs from functioning properly.

The researchers reviewed studies involving hundreds of thousands of people and found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users. Antidepressant users also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks. The findings were published today in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.

“We are very concerned by these results. They suggest that we shouldn’t be taking antidepressant drugs without understanding precisely how they interact with the body,” says author Paul Andrews, an associate professor at McMaster University who led the research team.

Taken by one in eight adult Americans, antidepressants are among the most frequently used medications. They are often prescribed by family doctors without a formal diagnosis of depression, on the assumption they are safe. Since depression itself can be deadly—people with depression are at an increased risk of suicide, stroke and heart attack—many physicians think that antidepressants could save lives by reducing depressive symptoms.

However, McMaster researcher and co-author Marta Maslej, says, “Our findings are important because they undermine this assumption. I think people would be much less willing to take these drugs if they were aware how little is known about their impact outside of the brain, and that what we do know points to an increased risk of death.”

Benoit Mulsant, a psychiatrist at the University of Toronto who was also involved in the study, says the findings point to the need for more research on how antidepressants actually do work.

“I prescribe antidepressants even though I do not know if they are more harmful than helpful in the long-term. I am worried that in some patients they could be, and psychiatrists in 50 years will wonder why we did not do more to find out,” Mulsant says.

Interestingly, the news about antidepressants is not all bad. The researchers found that antidepressants are not harmful for people with cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. This makes sense since these antidepressants have blood-thinning effects that are useful in treating such disorders. Unfortunately, this also means that for most people who are in otherwise good cardiovascular health, antidepressants tend to be harmful.

REM Sleep Disorder: Aspiring Pastor Accused of Stabbing Wife to Death

 

Aspiring Pastor Accused of Killing Wife in His Sleep Blames Cold Medicine: ‘I Can’t Believe I Did This’

A 28-year-old North Carolina man is facing a murder charge after allegedly stabbing his wife in bed — but the newlywed claims he doesn’t remember carrying out the alleged crime because he might have done it in his sleep, PEOPLE confirms.

Matthew Phelps, of Raleigh, called police distraught early Friday morning, declaring that his wife, Lauren, was dead on their bedroom floor covered in blood.

“I had a dream and then I turned on the lights and she’s dead on the floor,” he says in a 911 call obtained by PEOPLE. “I have blood all over me and there’s a bloody knife on the bed and I think I did it. I can’t believe this.”

Warning went out to NC pastors in 2008

What is really extra sad about this is that my article Sorcery and Spirituality http://www.drugawareness.org/articles/spirituality-and-sorcery came from an article a minister, Rev. George Malkmus, at Halleluah Acres, in NC asked me to write for his followers back in 2008. This is an article I ask all the time for everyone to take to their church leaders so that they will have this warning from the scriptures about this terrible plague of these deadly drugs that we were told would deceive the whole world in our day and would be the cause of death for many.

The Deception:

#1 We now know the approval for these drugs was bribed.  “I indirectly contributed to the death of . . . people, whose shadows now haunt me.”…. Dr. John Virapen Listen to him confess that here: http://new.drugawareness.org/meet-dr-john-virapen-the-man-who-bought-prozacs-approval/
#2 But that was only the beginning of the deception. From there it has gotten worse with Dr. Candace Pert whose research made all these drugs possible coming out against them in 1997…I AM ALARMED AT THE SSRI MONSTER I CREATED…. http://new.drugawareness.org/i-am-alarmed-at-the-monster-ssrisnri-antidepressants-i-created-dr-candace-pert/
#3 The serotonin hypothesis is backwards – serotonin never was low in depression, anxiety, etc. Research demonstrated it was elevated in those disorders due to an inability to metabolize serotonin – exactly what antidepressants do – inhibit the reuptake (metabolism) of serotonin! As I explained at the FDA hearing in September of 2004: https://youtu.be/BS-OXxmtFaE?list=PLVC0WUxi0530sZYe8rvs-8fZwP0M-5xdG

September 2004 Mark Taylor & Spoke of Antidepressants on the 700 Club

After we finished testimony at the FDA and learned of the Black Box Warning to be put into place Mark Taylor, his mother, Donna, and I drove down the East Coast to Florida for a case I had there very similar to this young aspiring pastor which had been the result of cold turkey withdrawal from Effexor. On our way we stopped in NC to film a piece with the 700 Club which you can see on the video about Mark and his case against Pharma and the retaliation they have taken against him for speaking out – which has only grown increasingly far worse since the film was put together in 2013:  Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine:

 

Dextromethorphan in Cough, Cold & Sleep Medications is Serotonergic

We have been warning about cough medications and antidepressant use forever! The ingredient Dextromethorphan is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and will magnify the adverse effects of these drugs while on them or in withdrawal from them. I would suspect one would need to avoid them for many years after coming off. Kids call this ingredient Dex and they have been getting high on it for decades. It can produce a PCP effect, but as most of you should now know all of these antidepressants can do that as well. If you have not yet spent hours on our main website to learn all the cautions you need to take, I would suggest you commit yourselves to do that NOW! Something like this is certainly not worth taking a chance on! But learn from this article on this deadly sleep disorder that 86% of these cases involve someone who is currently on an antidepressant or making changes in the dose of an antidepressant. It has long been known as a drug withdrawal state. We do not yet know if this young man was on an antidepressant, but NC has long been known for having one of the highest rates of use nationwide. So chances of him being on one or having been on one in the past are high.  If you look at this case out of Washington State you will see a REM Sleep Disorder explained by a young man who took a gun to school when he was 16 and held his classmates at gunpoint for 45 minutes and today, almost 20 years later still has no memory of it. He was being switched over from a year on Paxil to Effexor…

Dangerous RBD Sleep Disorder From Antidepressants

During normal REM sleep the muscles in the body become paralyzed and only keeps the necessary functions of the body working such as respiration, heart beat, etc. There are a small group of cells in the brain stem that control REM (dreaming sleep). When these cells become injured or diseased, people do not experience the muscle paralysis associated with REM sleep, which can lead to REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD)-a serious condition in which the afflicted violently act out their dreams.
In this sleep state known as RBD, people have been known, not only to drive, but to do things completely uncharacteristic of themselves such as fight like a military person although never serving in the military, become promiscuous, but also even to murder those close to them and to take their own lives in this sleep state. Murder and suicide have long been known to be a symptom of REM sleep disorder. This is an unconscious state without normal inhibitions and full of automatic behavior based on whatever dream you may be having.
This link http://www.oddee.com/item_96680.aspx will show you some of the MANY possibilities when you are acting out your dreams or nightmares while experiencing RBD. At drugawareness.org we have many of these types of cases which were induced by the use of antidepressants. Keep in mind that the most common side effect of antidepressants is insomnia, especially in withdrawal, so those in antidepressant withdrawal often have their chances of experiencing RBD increased by being prescribed drugs similar to Ambien.
Over 80% of those who go into RBD hurt themselves or others. I have one book I have written on RBD and am finishing up an ebook now. Although rare in the past we are seeing more and more of this deadly disorder. While drugs similar to Zolpidem (Ambien) are found in 3% of these cases what few are aware of is the research by America’s two foremost experts on this disorder showing that 86% of the cases they are diagnosing with RBD are patients currently taking an antidepressant. But because RBD has long been known as a “drug withdrawal state” the risk of RBD in antidepressant withdrawal or Zolpidem and similar drugs could be far greater!
The worst of this disorder is when it is a nightmare you are experiencing when you go into this sleepwalk state. For two decades I have listened to people repeat over and over to me after coming safely off an antidepressant, “I acted out my worst nightmare on this drug!” And, as I testified before the FDA, this previously rare sleep disorder of RBD is exactly what comedian Phil Hartman’s wife experienced when she shot her famous husband under the influence of two serotonergic drugs: Zoloft and Ultram (Tramadol).

COLD TURKEY WITHDRAWAL: SEROQUEL: Triple Murder Demonstrates Why Not To Do This

Derek Saretzky above stopped his “sleeping pill,” the atypical antipsychotic drug Seroquel (Quetiapine) abruptly two months before this tragedy….

Thinking about stopping your medication cold turkey, switching medications, starting Seroquel or any other serotonergic drug???? Read this current ongoing triple murder case and think again!!!!! You may also want to visit our Facebook group “Seroquel (Quetiapine) Should Be Illegal”

The second article is an interview with his grandfather who talks about the drug and alcohol problems Derek had previously and a fairly recent divorce. Keep in mind that antidepressants which produce terrible insomnia are very often prescribed after a divorce. So the Sequel could have been prescribed for insomnia he developed from an antidepressant. If so the Seroquel could have been his second exposure to a serotonergic medication. Each exposure produces more and more intense adverse reactions.

His grandfather also included the information that the elderly woman he killed first was a family friend he had done odd jobs for his entire life.

I have left out the extremely graphic parts of this first article for you…others can read the article for the rest of the story including cannibalism. Always remember that a safe withdrawal is a gradual withdrawal & as you will see there is very good reason why the FDA issued their warnings on withdrawal from these serotonergic medications. Rapid withdrawal is most definitely not worth the risk of going into a REM Sleep Disorder (where 80% hurt themselves or someone else), a manic psychosis or any other type of psychosis…..

ABRUPT or RAPID SEROQUEL WITHDRAWAL & THE REM SLEEP DISORDER

Killed in this case were Terry Blanchette, 27, and his two year old daughter Hailey and Hanne Meketech, 69, who was killed five days earlier than Terry and his small daughter. All of these killings were very brutal deaths which included no guns.

Abrupt withdrawal from any serotonergic medication can produce this type of impulsive murder, as well as suicide, as a patient slips into a REM Sleep Disorder which can appear months after the abrupt withdrawal. REM Sleep Disorder has long been known to produce both murder and suicide in a sleep state as the patient acts out nightmares.
It has been my experience in dealing with the adverse effects of these drugs that increase serotonin that all of them can produce this deadly sleep disorder. But the majority of the drugs involved have been the serotonergic antidepressants. Research indicates that 86% of those being diagnosed with this extremely deadly sleep disorder are currently taking antidepressants even though the REM Sleep Disorder has long been known as a drug withdrawal state.
The big problem with all of these new so called “atypical” antipsychotics like Seroquel, Zyprexa, Abilify,  Risperdal, Geodon, etc. is that they are like a combination of an SSRI antidepressant mixed with an older anti-psychotic. So, you get similar adverse effects to these drugs as you do the antidepressants.
I do know that after testifying in these cases & documenting them for 25 years this drug-induced nightmare we are living in needs to end!!! I hope family members on both sides of this tragedy hold the drug maker responsible for these senseless deaths!!!
In a hearing in 2008 I presented testimony before the FDA on this deadly drug. We also have a Facebook group titled “Seroquel (Quetiapine) Should Be Illegal.” And there is a similar Facebook group for each of these atypical anti-psychotics and antidepressants.

From the article posted below this we read: “….he had stopped taking Seroquel – an antipsychotic medication – which he said he had been on to help him sleep. [PLEASE NOTE The prescription of this antipsychotic drug was for sleep, NOT psychosis! The psychosis was the result of the abrupt withdrawal from the drug.]

Saretzky said he had stopped taking the medication a few months earlier, adding, “Everything’s been a real blur since then.”

McCauley then asked about something Saretzky’s father had said about talking to the devil.

“[The devil] takes control of me sometimes and I don’t know how or why,” Saretzky replied…. [Even atheists have reported to me for years now that they feel possessed on these drugs or that someone else’s brain is in their body.]

He said that he had dated Cheyenne Dunbar, Hailey’s mother, after Hailey was born, but that he ended the relationship when he chose a friend over her. McCauley asked if Saretzky felt like Hailey’s step-dad, to which he responded, “Kinda I guess.”

As McCauley directed the conversation to the murder of Blanchette, Saretzky said, “I don’t even remember going to Terry’s house,” then saying, “God did it, not me. God did it himself.” [The going in and out of consciousness as one acts out the dreams or nightmares they are having.]

While remaining calm and telling Saretzky that he believed he was under the control of a demon

After continuing to deny that he played any role, Saretzky finally broke down… [Often the patient is not even sure what they have or have not done on the drug and it takes a lot of the puzzle pieces placed in front of them for them to realize that what they remember only slightly as a nightmare was reality.]

“Think I’d have a chance if I plead insanity?” Saretzky asked, after first inquiring if he might spend the rest of his life in prison. McCauley responded that it wasn’t something he had control over. [PLEASE note that the patients have always reported they had no control over their actions. I still remember young Kip Kinkle screaming over and over to police after committing one of the first school shootings on Prozac and Ritalin, “I had no choice!!!!” when he was being questioned about killing his parents and shooting classmates.]

Common Legal Drinks Kill Boy, 16, In 3 Hours

Davis Allen Cripe, 16

What are your children drinking that may cause this to happen to your child? Do you know? This boy dropped dead at school and his family is now warning others….Through his friends, investigators learned that Cripes consumed a large Diet Mountain Dew, a McDonald’s Cafe Latte and 16 ounces of an unspecified type of energy drink within two hours.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says children and adolescents shouldn’t consume energy or sports drinks at all and instead should be drinking water.

Of more than 5,000 cases involving energy drinks that were reported to U.S. poison control centers between 2010 and 2013, nearly half the children did not know what they were drinking, according to research presented to the American Heart Association in 2014. In many cases, children 6 and younger consumed a drink they found in the refrigerator, or one left lying around the house by a parent or older sibling.

 It’s sometimes called the world’s most common drug, and regularly consuming as little as two cups of coffee (or three cans of soda) a day is enough to get you so hooked that stopping the habit can cause withdrawal symptoms, Murray Carpenter, author of “Caffeinated” said in Men’s Journal.

In small amounts, caffeine makes us feel good, but “it is a drug whose strength is consistently underestimated,” Carpenter says.

“A quarter teaspoon will lead to bodily unpleasantness — racing heart, sweating and acute anxiety. A tablespoon will kill you,” he wrote in “Caffeinated.”

That’s far more than the maximum safe level given by most health officials which is 400 milligrams a day, roughly the amount in 4 cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola or two energy drinks, the Mayo Clinic says.

Original Article: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865680110/This-common-legal-substance-can-kill-a-healthy-teen-in-3-hours.html

How sad and tragic it took a child losing his life for such an important subject to be addressed. Our ability to perform & cope in life is built via good nutrition. Stimulants which force us beyond our own natural ability should always be avoided because they will deplete us of our ability to perform and cope by using up that energy which our bodies would naturally conserve for us if we would allow it to do so rather than forcing it.

I have long been very concerned over the high rate of use of these drinks full of not only the stimulant, caffeine, but yet another very strong stimulant drug so very similar to cocaine – refined sugar. This is not even mentioned in the article or considered as a contributor to this boy’s death when in fact not only was it a contributor, but also the aspartame he consumed in his diet Mountain Dew was as well.
Brain Scan Comparing Stimulant Effect of Sugar to Cocaine
Note the Sugar Appears to Have a Stronger Effect Than Cocaine!

Mental Health Concerns of Stimulants

Not only are there the serious physical health risks associated with these “energy drinks,” but also the mental health risks. With the child suicide rate announced last week to be doubled worldwide and as of last year tripled in Utah, we should be even more concerned about any stimulant a child is consuming because we know that basic science tells us what goes up comes down. Stimulants produce depression after the initial high we  mistakenly​ refer to as an “energy boost”.
But depression is not the only mental concern produced by stimulants. Psychiatrists have long warned that these so called “energy drinks” are producing a toxic psychosis in children which can manifest as either Bipolar or Schizophrenia and it does not subside until the child stops drinking these stimulant drinks. How many of them are being misdiagnosed and instead of stopping the energy drinks or latte’s are instead treated with dangerous psychiatric drugs for the rest of their lives?
While we complain about how insane our youth are becoming we fuel that insanity by feeding them stimulants and/or never teaching them these things and allowing them to consume stimulants with no knowledge of the risks.

Any Antidepressant Connection Here?

Keep in mind while discussing stimulants that anti-depressants… the opposite of a depressant….is?
Yes! They are stimulant drugs!
When antidepressants can produce a doubling of cortisol with one dose that is a huge stimulant effect! So strong a stimulant effect is it that many patients end up with adrenal fatigue or failure as a result. You can only force the body for so long before it crashes and goes into burn out. That burn out comes when the adrenal glands can no longer or only barely produce the adrenaline they should produce. (See our Facebook group: Antidepressant-Induced Adrenal Fatigue/Failure https://www.facebook.com/groups/904424182981085/ )
But another way that antidepressants contribute to this stimulant effect is the cravings they produce for other stimulants: sugar, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, diet drinks, etc. People will report consuming abnormally huge amounts of all of these. Forget the four cups of coffee a day described as safe! They report drinking pots of coffee daily and do see them without a big gulp of diet pop once they begin drinking it is also rare. Which is why we also have the following Facebook groups online as well:
Antidepressant-Induced Hypoglycemia & Diabetes
Antidepressant-Induced Cravings for Alcohol
Antidepressant-Induced Weight Gain

 In Conclusion: Children Exposed to Antidepressants in the Womb

The are so many children being exposed to these drugs in the womb that there needs to be more said about the long-term effects of antidepressants upon these children. The first thing researchers noticed were the hypoglycemic effects these children have setting them up for an early diagnosis of diabetes if parents do not know to watch their diets closely. Increased rates of depression, anxiety, asthma – any of the many effects of elevated serotonin are what should be watched for with these children and most definitely an avoiding of stimulants of any kind. I will post my 2004 testimony before the FDA which lists all of the symptoms of elevated serotonin as I related them to the FDA Advisory Panel so you will know what to watch for:

THE SEROTONIN HYPOTHESIS IN ANTIDEPRESSANTS & ATYPICAL ANTIPSYCHOTICS

 
If ANYONE would bother to actually read research (Something I have found EXTREMELY rare among physicians who generally just rely on drug salesmen to share info with them on new drugs!) they would find that the serotonin hypothesis in depression, anxiety, etc. is completely and totally backwards.

Low Serotonin???

 According to the pre-existing research on serotonin, long before these drugs were ever introduced to the market, serotonin is NOT low in depression, anxiety, ect. But in fact serotonin is actually elevated with all of these.

Serotonin Reuptake is Low!

What is low in depression is one’s ability to metabolize serotonin or serotonin reuptake – exactly what antidepressants are designed to impair! This is why they are called Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They inhibit the reuptake (metabolism) of serotonin! They should therefore, CAUSE everything the marketing of these drugs tells us they will cure. And patient experience over the past 30 years since these drugs were introduced proves that to be true!
 
If anyone is interested in reading that research I gathered all of that to include along with the experiences patients were reporting as a result of using these SSRI antidepressants in my book on the SSRIs & SNRIs (which also inludes the new atypical antipsychotic drugs and any others working on serotonin reuptake such as Wellbutrin, Lyrica, Gabapentin, all the Atipycal Antipsychotics, etc.) in my book, “Prozac Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!” there are 21 pages in small print of references to medical research in the back of the book to support everything said here. In fact the same material has been successfully used in court cases against these drugs. In fact serotonin is what LSD and PCP mimic in order to produce hallucinations/psychosis so as serotonin increases to higher and higher levels psychosis should be the expected end result along with this long list I shared with the FDA in the testimony below: migraines, hot flashes, pains around the heart, difficulty breathing, a worsening of bronchial complaints, tension and anxiety which appear from out of nowhere, depression, suicide – especially very violent suicide, hostility, violent crime, arson, substance abuse, psychosis, mania, organic brain disease, autism, anorexia, reckless driving, Alzheimer’s, impulsive behavior with no concern for punishment, and argumentative behavior.
Warning: Even though this information may be shocking to learn if you or a loved one is on one of these medications, whatever you do NEVER make abrupt changes in the dose of any of these drugs or come off them rapidly!!! If you do so the FDA has now warned those abrupt changes can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. Sadly most need years to come off safely. You can learn here on our website how and why the brain needs such a gradual withdrawal process. And if you click “store” you can find my hour and a half long MP3 on safe withdrawal for only $4.95 which can be downloaded instantly with more information on serotonin than you will get in any one book I know of except for mine above.

FDA heard this in 2004

Here I am explaining to the FDA clear back in 2004 that incorrect serotonin hypothesis & what we should expect to see in our society as a result of the widespread use of these drugs:
 

Transcript

I am Ann Blake-Tracy, head of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. I am the author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare and have testified in court cases involving antidepressants for 12 1/2 years. The last 15 years of my life have been devoted full time to researching and writing about SSRI antidepressants.

Research on serotonin has been clear from the very beginning that the most damaging thing that could be done to the serotonin system would be to impair one?s ability to metabolize serotonin. Yet that is exactly how SSRI antidepressants exert their effects.

For decades research has shown that impairing serotonin metabolism will produce migraines, hot flashes, pains around the heart, difficulty breathing, a worsening of bronchial complaints, tension and anxiety which appear from out of nowhere, depression, suicide – especially very violent suicide, hostility, violent crime, arson, substance abuse, psychosis, mania, organic brain disease, autism, anorexia, reckless driving, Alzheimer’s, impulsive behavior with no concern for punishment, and argumentative behavior.

How anyone ever thought it would be “therapeutic” to chemically induce these reactions is beyond me. Yet, these reactions are exactly what we have witnessed in our society over the past decade and a half as a result of the widespread use of these drugs.

In fact we even have a whole new vocabulary as a result with terms such as “road rage,” “suicide by cop,” “murder/suicide,” “going postal,” “false memory syndrome,” “school shooting,” “bi-polar” – every third person you meet anymore – along with the skyrocketing rates of antidepressant-induced diabetes and hypoglycemia.

Can you remember two decades ago when depressed people used to slip away quietly to kill themselves rather than killing everyone around them and then themselves as they do while taking SSRI antidepressants?

A study out of the University of Southern California in 1996 looked at a group of mutant mice in an experiment that had gone terribly wrong. These genetically engineered mice were the most violent creatures they had ever witnessed. They were born lacking the MAO-A enzyme which metabolizes serotonin. As a result their brains were awash in serotonin. This excess serotonin is what the researchers determined was the cause for this extreme violence. Antidepressants produce the same end result as they inhibit the metabolism of serotonin.

These are extremely dangerous drugs that should be banned as similar drugs have been banned in the past.

As a society we once thought LSD and PCP to be miracle medications with large margins of safety in humans. We have never seen drugs so similar to LSD and PCP as these SSRI antidepressants. All of these drugs produce dreaming during periods of wakefulness. It is believed that the high serotonin levels over stimulate the brain stem leading to a lack of muscle paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. The world witnessed that clearly in the Zoloft-induced murder-suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife, Brynn.

Connecticut witnessed the Prozac-induced case of Kelly Silk several years ago. This young mother attacked her family with a knife, then set the house on fire killing all but her 8 year old daughter who ran to the neighbors. As she stood bleeding and screaming for help she explained, “Help! My mommy is having a nightmare!”

Out of the mouths of babes we will understand these nightmares for what they are. She understood that this was something her mother would do ONLY in a nightmare, never in reality.

This is known as a REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. In the past it was known mainly as a drug withdrawal state, but the largest sleep facility in the country has reported that 86% of the cases they are diagnosing are patients on antidepressants.

Because this was known in the past as a condition manifesting mainly in drug withdrawal you should see how dangerous the withdrawal state from these drugs will prove to be. That is why it is so critical to make sure patients are weaned EXTREMELY slowly so as to avoid ANY chance of going into a withdrawal state.

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.)

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & ALZHEIMER’S: Glen Campbell’s Final Album “Adios”

How very sad and tragic that these medical disasters continue to destroy the lives of so many celebrities, as well as many more in the general society, and NO ONE seems to know that medications have done this to any of them! Glen Campbell is sadly only one example of so many more.
FIRST THE ARIZONA DUI
Years ago when Glen was arrested in Phoenix for drunk driving they let everyone know he was on the antidepressant Lexapro (You can find that in our database of thousands of cases at www.SSRIstories.NET). Most important to consider in his arrest is that all of these serotonergic antidepressants – SSRIs and SNRIs – produce overwhelming craving for alcohol – even in those who have never touched alcohol before. And for those who had alcohol problems previously, these antidepressants so often given as “treatment” in rehab, have been shown in medical studies to increase drinking by 45%!
Did anyone explain that to Glen Campbell back then? Of course not! That would cut into their profits. I am sure they did as most doctors were doing – increased his dose or just switch to a different brand of the same kind of drug.
See our Facebook group “Antidepressant-Induced Cravings for Alcohol” for more info on the alcohol cravings:
So in thinking the antidepressants were helping him he continued to use them as his various mental disorders worsened and changed from depression, to major depression, etc. He could have easily developed a Bipolar Disorder,  as so many do who take antidepressants since antidepressants induce Bipolar so rapidly, but if he did I missed that one while I was attempting to keep up with all the other tragedies caused by these drugs.
Now for years we have heard that Glen Campbell is suffering from Alzheimer’s. But what he and so few others remain completely unaware of is that these drugs which are designed to increase serotonin produce all the symptoms of Alzheimer’s while they slowly shut down every body system. The drugs affect memory sp strongly that Amnesia is a common side effect!
Alzheimer’s disease has long been known to be a condition of elevated serotonin levels. The gummy gooey glossy substance they know builds up in the brain is the same gummy gooey glossy substance they found built up on the heart valves of those who took the serotonergic diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux.
These diet pill heart valve issues wound up being one of the very largest patient damage suits in the history of the US due to that gummy gooey glossy gunk that built up on the heart valves preventing the valves from shutting properly.
And what was the cause of that gummy gooey glossy gunk? Wwll according to the Mayo Clinic study by Dr. Heidi Connolly it was elevated serotonin – exactly the action of the these diet pills which increase serotonin levels from two directions while antidepressants do so from one direction.
So does that risk remain a concern with antidepressants as well? Certainly it should although it should take longer to produce this adverse effect than the diet pills due to the antidepressants increasing serotonin via one direction, serotonin reuptake, rather than two directions as the diet pills did. 
 

But what about the brain?

While the drug maker got away with the massive brain damage … the drugs were actually pulled for causing brain damage, not heart damage. Most were left to believe the drugs were pulled due to the heart valve damage brought to light by Heidi Connolly’s research but that was clear back in June, months before the drugs were pulled. What was new was the research of Dr. Una McCann at NIH on the resulting brain damage from these serotonergic diet pills. Only two weeks before the drugs were pulled she published a study done for NIH indicating some of the worst brain damage I have ever seen. The catch was that when the FDA had issued a temporary approval for Redux the year before they were concerned there may be brain damage from these serotonergic diet drugs so they insisted that Wyeth do research to learn if that was indeed the case with Redux. But Wyeth had done NO research at all on brain damage associated with their drug by the time Una McCann’s research came out. This is the real reason why the drugs were pulled by the manufacturer.

 

The brain damage was clearly associated with the elevated levels of serotonin in my opinion and this is why antidepressants designed to increase serotonin can produce that same brain damage which I have no doubt is what has happened to Glen Campbell over the years.

 

ROBERT REDFORD’S FAMILY TOO?!

Is it just a coincidence that two of the states with the highest use of antidepressants, Florida and Utah, hold the two highest rates of Alzheimer’s?!!! Read this link to see how this same reaction affected Robert Redford’s Utah family very early on and could have ended the same way as Glen Campbell’s has…

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & MEMORY LOSS: Utah No. 2 in nation for Alzheimer’s

Please visit our Facebook group on that side effect of these drugs: “Antidepressant-Induced Alzheimer’s, Amnesia and Memory Loss” :

Glen Campbell IS NOT not dying of Alzheimer’s!

He is dying of antidepressant poisoning!

And if anyone knows how to reach him they could let him know that he does not need to die of Antidepressant-induced Alzheimer’s, but that does not mean it will not be a long road back with a long and gradual weaning process and then rebuilding from all the damage.

Go here to listen to him sing “Adios”…..

19 DEAD 25 WOUNDED IN KNIFE ATTACK

“A knife-wielding man broke into a facility for the disabled in a small town near Tokyo early on Tuesday and killed 19 patients as they slept….

“The suspect was a 26-year-old former employee of the facility who gave himself up to police. The man, Satoshi Uematsu, said in letters he wrote in February that he could “obliterate 470 disabled people”, Kyodo news agency reported.

“He said he would kill 260 severely disabled people at two areas in the facility during a night shift, and would not hurt employees.

“My goal is a world in which the severely disabled can be euthanized, with their guardians’ consent, if they are unable to live at home and be active in society,” Uematsu wrote in the two letters given to the speaker of the lower house of parliament, Kyodo reported.

“Uematsu was committed to hospital after he expressed a “willingness to kill severely disabled people”, an official in Sagamihara told Reuters. He was freed on March 2 after a doctor deemed he had improved, the official said.”

   Brief History of SSRI Antidepressants in Japan

In April 1999 the Japanese version of our Associated Press sent a reporter over to spend a week with me in Salt Lake City after he had read my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? because Japan was about to approve the first SSRI in that country. He arrived only a few days after Columbine happened. While he was visiting I was scheduled to do a radio show at KTKK in Salt Lake so I invited him along. In the middle of doing that show we learned which antidepressant Eric Harris was taking at the time of the Columbine shooting – Luvox, the same SSRI that Japan was about to approve! Needless to say there was certainly a look of shock on his face as we got that news. I heard from him within a few weeks after he returned home to Japan as he wrote to let me know that there had been a case in Japan involving antidepressants where a man on the drugs stabbed a pilot to death and took over a plane in flight. More information on that case can be found in our database of documented cases www.SSRIstories.NET where you will see the antidepressant was used in his defense of that murder:  http://ssristories.net/archive/show1dd2.html?item=607

Then in 2001 there was another terrible mass stabbing in Japan in an attack by a man who admitted taking extra antidepressants before attacking and stabbing to death 8 small children. This can happen when someone takes extra pills thinking they are not yet feeling the depression lift or it can also be the tragic outcome of a suicidal overdose attempt.

When we take a look at this 2001 case in Japan where 8 children were stabbed to death and many more injured….You will also see why the option of overdosing on an antidepressant is not only dangerous for you, but for everyone around you. Columbine Mark Taylor joins me in this Fox news interview about several other cases you will find very interesting even if you have heard about them before, including the Wyoming mass murder case involving the Donald Schell family where Paxil was found guilty of this murder.

Who Is To Blame For All This Violence?

Obviously drug makers who put profit above patients are to blame, but WE also are to blame for allowing so called “medications” on the market which have both homicidal and suicidal ideation (compulsive thoughts and actions of both suicide and homicide and the weapons to commit either). Why is that okay?

Look at this database of thousands of documented cases of violence by those taking antidepressants: www.SSRIstories.NET And before anyone dismisses these cases as anecdotal evidence listen to what the Father of Psychopharmacology said below about the great importance of anecdotal evidence and read this medical report done using this database as the basis for the report: Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) Drugs: More Risks Than Benefits?http://www.drugawareness.org/kauffman-study-selective-serotonin-reuptake-inhibitor-ssri-drugs-more-risks-than-benefits/

Importance of Anecdotal Evidence (Patient Reports) in Removing Drugs From the Market

People often dismiss patient reports forgetting that peer reviewed research is NOT what gets drugs pulled from the market. Its purpose is to get drugs approved, not removed. But what got Thalidomide removed from the market? It was all the cases of missing arms and legs of the babies born to the mothers of those who took the drug.

This statement on the importance of anecdotal evidence as opposed to peer reviewed double blind studies is from Dr. Johnathan Cole, MD, the father of Psychopharmacology:

“The real world is not perfect. Drugs can and do cause adverse effects which can resemble the manifestations of the illness and arguments about the causes and nature of these adverse events, including suicides, must rest on case reports [anecdotal evidence] and data collected in small studies for other purposes. . . If some cases stand out strikingly, there are logically others where the adverse effect is more subtle.”

Tragically it appears that these deadly drugs have continued to disrupt the peace of the country of Japan as so many others now as well.

Deadly Drugs – Database of Thousands of Antidepressant-Induced Tragedies … www.SSRIstories.NET

SSRIstories.NET is a database of the cases our group at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has gathered over the past 2 1/2 decades, including nearly every school shooter and mass shooter in the country. The question remains in all of these cases as to the level of consciousness of the perpetrator – something that is never tested in the court cases and should be. (Tragically in this case that is no longer an option.) Testing is still back in the dark ages with blood levels of drugs rather than brain waves which will detect the level of consciousness and therefore culpability. These are drugs that accumulate in brain tissue at an alarming rate. Testing the blood tells us nothing about the level of toxicity.

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 was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study out of the Southern California:

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE 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. Feel free to join us on Facebook to learn more about this disorder on our Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/106704639660883/

History of Mental Illness: Elderly Man Sets Self on Fire, Rams Car Into Police Station

A MAN after he set himself on fire drove his flaming vehicle filled with gas bombs into the Merrylands police station’s underground carpark. No one else was injured in the car-bomb attack when the man rammed the vehicle into the carpark about 7pm. Amazingly he survived and is in custody.

At least it appears that police officers in Australia recognize insanity when they see it instead of jumping on the terrorist bandwagon!!! “It is understood he is well-known to police, but has no known links to terror groups.”

…”Assistant Commissioner Denis Clifford said although they do not believe he has any links to terror groups, they are “keeping an open mind” throughout the investigation.

“Initial inquiries suggest there are no links to any groups,” he said.

It is absolutely amazing that the bombs did not go off and this man survived! Elevated serotonin has long been associated with pyromania (fire starting). If on one of these drugs, and with a history of mental illness it would be an even bigger miracle if he had not been given either an antidepressant or an atypical antipsychotic which both increase levels of serotonin, he and his family deserve to know the truth about what really happened to him!
