An Absolute Classic Antidepressant Case:

There are just FAR TOO MANY of these cases to find the time to share them all with you. It is all I can do to save the cases until there is enough help to get them all posted in our database of cases at www.SSRIstories.NET. But as I can find the time to post them here or on our Facebook groups I will.
Baby Armani’s story is absolutely classic and the same scenario I have heard repeated daily for 30 years! If you can find a way to pull up the September, 1997 show I did with Geraldo called “Diet Pill Disaster” all about the diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux, which were pulled from the market that month, and their chemical cousins, the SSRI antidepressants, you will find a very similar story out of a small town in Kansas.
I got a call from my close friend, Doris, from Germany, who married an American and moved to Kansas. She had just finished reading my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?,  I had sent her a copy of. Her first words were, “We have just had one of your cases here in my small hometown. One of the nicest guys in town has just attacked his family and killed himself.”
His wife describes her husband on Zoloft only 5 days, who while watching television with her, suddenly swung his hand across her waist as his head went back and his eyes rolled back in his head. Thinking he had fallen asleep during the show and was lashing out in his sleep as he had been doing since starting the drug, she attempted to wake him. Then she realized she was bleeding and he had just stabbed her!
She immediately ran upstairs to protect their children who were both in their own rooms. He followed her up the stairs and stabbed both of their children. But his wife had jumped out the son’s two story bedroom window so she could throw a large rock through their front window to draw her husband outside away from the children. It worked. But after chasing her in the pitch black darkness he stopped and went back in the house and shot himself.
She and the children survived their wounds, but the first thing they were offered in the hospital after emergency care was Prozac. They adamantly refused and I will let you guess what the wife told them they could do with that Prozac!
Baby Armani & His Family’s Nightmare
Now back to baby Armani and his family’s nightmare in San Antonio early this month. These drugs must be very popular among the doctors in San Antonio because they have so many terrible cases like this there. Sutherland Springs, where the mass church shooting left 27 dead in the worst mass Church shooting ever, is only half and hour away. I will let you go to our database of cases to look up the rest of the cases there we have been able to get posted.
Her boyfriend was stressed at work Friday after working 6 days a week and called to have her pick him up early. At 2 that morning things were still ‘off’ with Lance Tello…
“In Tello’s bedroom later that night, the mom made a plea for her boyfriend to let her know what was going on.

“And I’m talking to him and telling him, ‘I’m sorry you’re feeling like this, but can you just talk to me?'” But he refused.

Delacruz said that Tello stood up and looked at himself in the mirror before reaching under the mattress and pulling out a gun.

“He has no emotion in his face,” she recalled about that terrifying moment. “He’s just looking at me with this evil look.”

Tello turned from the mirror, cocked his gun, and pointed it at her.

“You’re not going to shoot my baby,” she told him. But before she could push him away, the gun went off…

“Then I turn around and I see my son,” she continued. “My son is on the floor and he’s turning blue.”

Both of these cases are classic antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder  (RBD) cases which I discuss extensively in my book on these drugs. It was not until a 2003 New York Times article that I learned of Dr. Carlos Schenck’s work in documenting the link we had discussed in 1992 between the SSRI antidepressants and RBD which I was seeing so often in these cases.  I learned in the article that Dr.  Schenck  had gone back through his records and found that about 45% of the patients his sleep disorder clinic had diagnosed with RBD were on antidepressants.

Those results were high enough that he felt they should investigate that link further and launched a study to address the link directly. What they found in the study  was an astounding 86% of the patients diagnosed with this most deadly of sleep disorders where you act out nightmares in a sleep state were taking antidepressants (80% on SSRIs & 6% on the tricyclic antidepressants)!

This should not only be a Black Box Warning on these drugs but should also be headline news worldwide! And yet it has now been over a quarter of a century since I first sounded the warning in my book about this most deadly side effect and testified to the FDA about it in 2004. All while we still wait for any warning to patients or an unsuspecting public who could be put in danger at any time like these two families have been!

And we still wait for research to be done on how often this is found in abrupt or rapid withdrawal from these drugs since it has LONG been known as an a drug withdrawal state! If Dr. Schenck found 86% of the cases involve those taking an antidepressant, just how high can it be expected in withdrawal from these drugs? The question the whole world deserves an answer to!!!

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.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND TEACHERS OF THE YEAR COMMITING SEX ABUSE NATIONWIDE

Ethel Anderson, FL Teacher of the Year, Gets 38 years

This week Tampa, FL teacher of the year Ethel Anderson got 38 years for sexually abusing a 12 year old male student she was tutoring.

Erica DePalo

Erica DePalo, NJ Teacher of the Year acquitted

While earlier this year Erica DePalo, NJ Teacher of the Year was acquitted for the same thing because her attorney at least knew enough to use the antidepressant defense in her case. She was already diagnosed Bipolar and had been given an antidepressant which he noted was a mistake pushing her into a manic reaction resulting in her skewed judgment.

“During Monday’s hearing there were revelations that DePalo suffered from depression and anxiety since she was in college and had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder several years ago. According to her defense attorney, Anthony Alfano, after her arrest DePalo discovered she was mistakenly prescribed with anti-depressants instead of mood stabilizers. He added, “the drugs contributed to her errors in judgment.”

Original Article:http://www.cbsnews.com/news/erica-depalo-former-nj-teacher-avoids-prison-on-sex-charge-with-15-year-old/

I have tracked these cases since the mid 90’s since they were basically unheard of before that time. In my investigation of cases during that time I can tell you that to find a female teacher who has sexually abused a male student who is not taking an antidepressant is next to impossible!! In all that time I have found one that reportedly did not involve antidepressant use, but was not able to ask enough questions in that case to see if it happened to be an antidepressant withdrawal mania that had caused that one.

As I discuss in my book on SSRI antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare, serotonin is directly connected to sexual compulsions. Studies show that pedophilia includes elevated levels of serotonin and we know elevated serotonin is a component in mania and mania is directly connected to gross errors in judgment when it comes to sexual behavior and sex abuse as I reported in my presentation to the FDA in their 12/2006 hearing on antidepressants: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

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!
