Study: High Psychotropic Medication Rates For Children With Autism

STUDY: HIGH PSYCHOTROPIC MEDICATION RATES FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM

(Keep in mind as you read through this critical information that Autism is a condition of ELEVATED serotonin levels and nearly everyone of the medications Autistic children are being given are drugs designed to INCREASE serotonin levels thereby making the Autistic symptoms worse. Yet doctors are prescribing these drugs to 64% of Autistic children with everyone working to find ways to combat the symptoms of Autism while they are taking medications that make those symptoms worse!!! This also indicates that Adam Lanza, the shooter at Sandy Hook, had a 64% chance of being on one of these medications since he had a diagnosis of Autism.)

And research shows that mothers on antidepressants (all antidepressants increase serotonin) have a 3 to 4 times greater rate of having a child with Autism! Autism is only one of MANY birth defects associated with a mother’s use of antidepressants. To give one of those children additional drugs that increase serotonin levels after the initial exposure within the mother’s womb, thus giving the child no opportunity to recover from that initial exposure, is beyond criminal in my opinion!

The very first birth defect noticed in the offspring of children born to mothers on antidepressants was hypoglycemia which contributes to higher rates of seizures, attention-deficit disorders, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or depression. With that in mind read below about those being treated with multiple medications and higher odds of being medicated with these drugs are the ones showing symptoms of seizures, attention-deficit disorders, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or depression which indicates these are more likely those children who became Autistic due to their mother’s use of an antidepressant during pregnancy!!!

Disclaimer: Please do not attempt withdrawal or any change in dose without reading withdrawal information below!

THE STUDY OBJECTIVE AND RESULTS

OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this study were to examine rates and predictors of psychotropic use and multiclass polypharmacy among commercially insured children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

RESULTS: Among 33?565 children with ASD, 64% had a filled prescription for at least 1 psychotropic medication, 35% had evidence of psychotropic polypharmacy (=2 classes), and 15% used medications from =3 classes concurrently. Among children with polypharmacy, the median length of polypharmacy was 346 days. Older children, those who had a psychiatrist visit, and those with evidence of co-occurring conditions (seizures, attention-deficit disorders, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or depression) had higher odds of psychotropic use and/or polypharmacy.

CONCLUSIONS: Despite minimal evidence of the effectiveness or appropriateness of multidrug treatment of ASD, psychotropic medications are commonly used, singly and in combination, for ASD and its co-occurring conditions. Our results indicate the need to develop standards of care around the prescription of psychotropic medications to children with ASD.”Roughly two-thirds of children in the U.S. who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have been prescribed at least one psychotropic medication, according to new estimates published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday.

“In addition, 35 percent of the children were simultaneously prescribed two or more psychotropic medications, including antidepressants, attention deficit disorder medications and antipsychotics.

“Fifteen percent had been prescribed at least three different types of psychotropic drugs.

NO PROOF THESE DRUGS ARE SAFE IN CHILDREN

“I believe the takeaway is that children are on a lot of psychiatric medications without proof that they work or are safe in children,” study researcher Anjali Jain wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. Jain, a managing consultant with health care consulting firm Lewin Group, added that “nothing is known about what happens to effectiveness or safety when drugs are combined — or about long-term effects.”

Live Coverage: LAX Shooting, 1 Dead 7 Injured

LAX shooting

LAX shooting: The latest

Another shooting….another SSRI antidepressant??? Airports nationwide on alert. Once again we wait and see. Then we wonder again when will it end?!

Decades of research documents that when antidepressants increase levels of serotonin they produce impulsive murder and suicide. Although with all of the absolutely insane rules and regulations TSA now has it is a wonder no one has started shooting before now! I just choose not to fly. But this is what we now know about 1 dead TSA agent and seven others wounded:

“A gunman armed with a high-powered rifle opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday morning, killing a TSA agent and wounding several others, authorities said.
Authorities said the gunman fired at several locations in Terminal 3 before police shot him. LAX police did not reveal his condition.

[Updated at 1 p.m.: The Times earlier reported that the suspect was dead. But sources have since told the paper that he is in critical condition.]

“The motive was unclear. A federal law enforcement official said that the gunman was a ticketed passenger entering the airport.

Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, entered the airport around 9:20 a.m., Pacific Time, and opened fire inside Terminal 3. The Associated Press also reported that authorities named Ciancia as the suspect.

According to the AP:

A law enforcement official, who was briefed at LAX on the investigation but not authorized to speak publicly, said the gunman was wearing fatigues and carrying a bag containing a hand-written note that said he “wanted to kill TSA and pigs.” The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

The suspect was in custody and being treated for injuries sustained during an exchange of gunfire with police.

MORE CLUES: SUSPECT SUICIDAL, YET FINE YESTERDAY

NJ police: Dad called, worried about LAX suspect

Posted: Nov 01, 2013 2:39 PM PDTUpdated: Nov 01, 2013 3:40 PM PDT

By MICHAEL RUBINKAM and KATHY MATHESON
Associated PressPENNSVILLE, N.J. (AP) – The young man believed to have carried out a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport had sent a sibling a text message mentioning suicide, leading their father to seek authorities’ help in finding him, a New Jersey police chief said Friday.

Paul Ciancia’s father called Pennsville Police Chief Allen Cummings early Friday afternoon saying another of his children had received a text message from the 23-year-old “in reference to him taking his own life,” the chief told The Associated Press.

The elder Ciancia, the owner of an auto-body shop in southern New Jersey, asked for help in locating Paul, Cummings said. The chief called Los Angeles police, which sent a patrol car to Ciancia’s apartment. It wasn’t clear whether the police visited before or after the airport shooting.

“Basically, there were two roommates there” Cummings said. “They said, ‘We saw him yesterday and he was fine.'”

Dr. Peter Gotzsche: Deadly Medicine and Organized Crime – How Big Pharma is Corrupting Healthcare

Dr

Dr. Peter C. Gotzsche, MD

This lecture by Dr. Peter C. Gotzsche, Danish medical researcher and author of “Deadly Medicine and Organized Crime – How Big Pharma is Corrupting Healthcare” is well worth the view! Although in Danish there are English subtitles. The following is just one example of common sense observations he brings out:

“The criteria for diagnosing depression – has been lowered and lowered over the years. Many years ago when there wasn’t any medication for depression only 1/1000 people were considered depressed, compared to today.

“According to the DSM III [published in 1980 before the SSRI antidepressants were introduced] if you lost your spouse, a year had to pass before you were considered depressed.

“When the DSM IV came out [published in 1994 right at the height of the SSRI antidepressant sky rocketing of use and the same year my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? was published.] it suddenly changed to 2 months [after the death of a spouse in which you needed to be in mourning before receiving a diagnosis of “depression”]

“Now we have DSM V [published in 2013] and it only takes two weeks! If you are still in mourning after two weeks you can be diagnosed as depressed. Few marriages can be so bad that you only mourn for 14 days afterward.. Despite the fact that it is quite a task to be married.

“That’s going too far.”

Prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. In his latest ground-breaking book, Peter C. Gøtzsche exposes the pharmaceutical industries and their charade of fraudulent behavior, both in research and marketing where the morally repugnant disregard for human lives is the norm.

He convincingly draws close comparisons with the tobacco conglomerates, revealing the extraordinary truth behind efforts to confuse and distract the public and their politicians.The book addresses, in evidence-based detail, an extraordinary system failure caused by widespread crime, corruption, bribery and impotent drug regulation in need of radical reforms.

5 Dead in Phoenix Murder/Suicide

 

 

Flower memorial at front door

5 Dead in Phoenix Murder/Suicide

Thanks to Adrianne Tracy Bentley? and Bev Simmons? for alerting us to this case out of Phoenix.

Michael Guzzo ran next door and shot and killed four neighbors and their dogs and tried to kill other neighbors before going home and shooting himself. Several months earlier he had let neighbors know that he could not handle their barking dogs.

Anyone having trouble with sleep cannot handle barking dogs and sleep deprivation is possibly the most common adverse reaction to an antidepressant and even more so in withdrawal from an antidepressant. Sleep deprivation can produce psychotic breaks.

Also anyone with a serious head injury cannot handle loud noises. Add to that the fact that antidepressants make that sensitivity even worse and should never be given to anyone with a head injury. That is according to Neurologist Dr. Jay Seastrunk and the Wellbutrin package insert – still waiting for all the other companies to warn of that. And that is one reason why I have always wondered why we do not have more shootings over kids blaring their music from their cars.

It would not surprise me at all to learn this is the case in this tragedy if anyone will look to find it.

The head injury leaves one in a position of increased possibility of seizure activity. The loud noises and the antidepressants increase that as well. Anger outbursts are also related to seizure activity which is an over stimulation of the brain….all of that is linked together as is the fact that mania which is a form of psychosis is a continuous series of mild seizures. And this all boils down to the fact that if you do not want to go insane avoid as much as possible that will over stimulate the brain – something our world appears to be full of stimulants of every kind possible.

“Good Kid” “Cheerful kid” Kills Teacher and Self in Sparks Nevada School Shooting

Sparks school shooting

Sparks, NV School Shooting 2 Dead, 2 Wounded

Another “good kid” kills teacher and himself….this time in my backyard, Nevada. No information has been released about the shooter yet other than the article below out of the Las Vegas Review Journal. The following is my posted comment on the shooting:

“I cannot help wondering if the shooting could have been prevented, as 68 out of 70 of the school shootings over the past two decades may have been, if this boy shooting was not under the influence of an antidepressant as 68 out of the 70 were? (Here is a video list of those 68 shootings with list of related medication: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be )

“These drugs produce the same end result as LSD or PCP by gradually increasing serotonin – the same brain chemical that LSD and PCP mimic to produce their hallucinogenic effects. Antidepressants have been behind nearly every major shooting in this country over the past couple of decades.

“How do I know? I have been tracking them, building a database of cases, and testifying and consulting in the cases for two decades as well. Antidepressants were behind the Navy Yard shooting as well as the shooting of the young woman in DC a couple of weeks ago. The same is true for Donna Fairchild who was running for mayor of Mesquite when she killed her husband and herself two years ago after being given an antidepressant to stop smoking.

“Listen to this interview with a school shooter “Why I Took A Gun To School,” :to learn how these drugs produce such violence via the most dangerous of sleep disorders, the REM Sleep Behavior Disorder, causing the timing of the shootings to occur most often in the middle of the night or morning hours: http://www.drugawareness.org/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1/

Medical Professionals Killing Others in Murder/Suicides

I have long stated that various types of medical professionals and their family members are largest single group facing serious reactions to antidepressants. With their easy access to medications and their strong belief in them we find a high use among them. One psychiatric nurse out of Iowa said publicly that 75% of the doctors and nurses she worked with were taking antidepressants. She said the drug reps are telling doctors and nurses that they are in stressful professions and the “depression” is going to hit them sooner or later so they may as well get started on antidepressants now to sort of “nip it in the bud” as they say. And apparently they are falling hard for that old sales pitch!

While searching for a particular murder/suicide case online the other day I ran across one case after another, after another, of murder/suicide situations involving medical professionals or family members of medical professionals and thought I would share with you what I see so often…..

DR. VICTORIA VOVCHIK

FEMALE PHYSICIAN STABS 7 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER THEN KILLS SELF LEAVING GORY SCEEN FOR PHYSICIAN FATHER TO FIND

NOTE: “It is still unclear whether Vovchik’s psychiatric history had an impact of her decision.” and “Family friends: Suicidal New City woman snapped.”

Mom Stabs Daughter & Kills Self

Dr. Victoria Vovchik from New City, New York killed herself after allegedly stabbing her seven year old daughter and leaving a gory scene for the girl’s father to find!

Reports say that the mother was obsessed with her baby’s daddy and although they did not live together and he is recently widowed he did co-own the house and was allegedly leading her on.

Officials said the young girl had been stabbed 31 times, including across the throat, and was rushed to Westchester Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.

Story Below:
The woman who slashed her 7-year-old daughter more than 30 times before killing herself Thursday was a devoted mother who was “obsessed” with the man who fathered the girl and hoped he would marry her one day, a former landlord told The Journal News.

Victoria Vovchik, a 45-year-old podiatrist, slit her throat after stabbing her daughter in an attempt to kill her in the master bedroom of their Quarry Road home, authorities said Friday.

The woman’s death was ruled a suicide Friday by acting Medical Examiner Dr. Laura Carbone.

Her daughter, Ava, was in stable condition at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla on Friday.

Investigators don’t know how long the mother and child remained in the bloody bedroom before they were discovered by Ava’s father, Dr. Kristappa Sangavaram, an anesthesiologist, who called 911 at 1:09 p.m. Thursday.

Before moving to the home in 2010, Vovchik lived in a rented home on Strawtown Road in New City.

Her landlady, Carol Huggins, described her as a devoted mother who was convinced that Sangavaram would marry her someday.

Huggins never saw Sangavaram but said Vovchik was deeply in love with him.

“She was obsessed, and he was just leading her on and on … I was concerned for her,” Huggins said. “She was totally in love, she was hoping that he would eventually be with her.”

Vovchik filled the backyard with expensive playground equipment and enrolled the child in Indian language and dance classes so she would learn her father’s culture, Huggins said.

“She talked about him all the time, and she would not even look at another man,” Huggins said. “When she gave her heart, she gave it forever.

I was concerned for her. I never met this man, but he was supposed to visit her once in a while, but she saw him less and less.

“Victoria would never have done this if she was in complete control of herself. Something terrible must have happened to her emotionally, for her to crack,” she said.

Aside from two self-inflicted incisions to her neck, Vovchik “had no other bodily injuries,” and toxicology results will not be available for several weeks, according to the medical examiner.

nvestigators are trying to figure out what led Vovchik to commit the violence.

“Maybe the little girl can shed some light on what happened for us when she’s healthy enough to talk to us,” Clarkstown police Sgt. Jo Anne Fratianni said. “It’s like putting a piece of the puzzle back together.”

She said police had never been called to the home for any domestic issue.

Sangavaram went to the house he co-owned with Vovchik after the Woodglen Elementary School nurse called him about his daughter’s absence from school Thursday.

Sangavaram, a widower since last year, lives in New Jersey, where he runs a restaurant.

Woodglen’s principal hosted a meeting with parents Friday afternoon. Support staff was in classrooms to help children and teachers.

“It’s a really sad, sad tragic event,” PTA co-president Jessica Fetterman said. “I don’t really know the family. It’s scary that this happened.”

At the meeting, parents discussed how they would respond if their children asked about the stabbing.

They also volunteered to help Ava’s family in any way, but were told to hold off until she was out of the woods, said Joseph Malgieri, Clarkstown school board president.

Richard Weiner, a Montvale, N.J., podiatrist who sold his Fort Lee practice to Vovchik six years ago, said he was shocked by the news of her murder attempt and suicide because he knew her only as pleasant and likable.

“I tried to introduce her to the (Fort Lee) community. She was personable and was knowledgeable in her profession,” Weiner said.

He said she seemed busy whenever he saw her but that she closed her practice last year. She was looking for a group practice to join, he said.

Vovchik may previously have been a nurse, New Jersey records indicate.

She had been licensed to practice podiatry in New York since 1997 and in New Jersey in 2003, records show.

There are recent local cases of women accused of killing their children.

Manuela Morgado of Mamaroneck was accused of killing her 4-year-old son in October and has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.

In 2011, former Spring Valley resident LaShanda Armstrong, 25, killed herself and three of her children when she drove down a Newburgh boat launch into the Hudson River. Her eldest son swam to safety.

Friends of Victoria Vovchik disclose insight into attempted murder-suicide

Family friends: Suicidal New City woman snapped (3/1/13)

NEW CITY – Friends of the New City woman who attempted to murder her daughter before killing herself have disclosed possible insight into what prompted her actions.
According to police, 45-year-old Dr. Victoria Vovchik, a podiatrist, stabbed her daughter, Ava Sangavaram, in their home on Quarry Drive yesterday. Clarkstown police say the girl’s father, Dr. Kristappa Sangavaram, discovered the bloody scene and called 911 after being notified by a nurse at Woodglen Elementary School that his daughter was not in class.
When officers arrived, they found both mother and daughter in the master bedroom. According to police, Vovchik was dead and the girl was conscious, but suffering from multiple stab wounds. Her throat had also been slashed.
However, family friends told Newsday Westchester that Sangavaram, who was never married to Vovchik, had recently lost his wife and refused to marry Vovchik despite her advances. This, they say, may have caused her to snap.

It is still unclear whether Vovchik’s psychiatric history had an impact of her decision.

Meanwhile, once Ava is healthy enough, authorities say they plan on questioning her to possibly determine a motive in the attack.

Jealous Mother Kills Son Because She Was Jilted by Husband

Manuela Maria Morgado

A New York mother killed her little boy before attempting to commit suicide after the child’s father reunited with his former wife, according to reports.

The Westchester County woman, caught in a custody battle over her 4-year-old son, killed the child before a failed suicide attempt in her suburban condominium, authorities said.

A dejected Manuela Maria Morgado was found semi-conscious and strangling the child’s dead body when police arrived at her home Monday morning. The police were called by a nervous family member, and found the mother and son Jason inside a room on the third floor, officials said.

Morgado, 46, tried to take an overdose of pills after taking the life of her son, a source told the news media.

Authorities did not say how the mother killed the child. Morgado was charged with second-degree murder, who apparently left suicide notes in the house.

The distraught father, Manhattan sports orthopedist Dr. Timothy Reish, came to the home Monday afternoon after the gruesome discovery by police.

Reish, 43, was involved in what looked like a fairly run-of-the-mill legal battle over the child before the mother’s murderous collapse, officials said.

There was no evidence of a threat to the child during the custody battle, authorities said.

Morgado, after an initial assessment at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, was indicted in Mamaroneck Village Court and jailed pending a court date Thursday. A neighbor said the child and mother were nice people who never bothered anyone in the apartment building. The child’s father has recently reunited with his former wife, according to police.

Pelle Wall, 18, had asked a juvenile court judge to remove his three siblings — ages 16, 13 and 11 — from his father’s home until a criminal investigation surrounding his father is completed.

Pelle’s mother, Uta von Schwedler, was found dead in her bathtub on Sept. 27, 2011. Because of the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death — including the medical examiner not being able to determine if the death was the result of homicide or suicide — Salt Lake police are conducting a criminal investigation. Friends and family members of von Schwedler believe her ex-husband, John Brickman Wall, is the key suspect.

Wall and von Schwedler divorced in 2006, but a bitter custody battle continued until the day she was found dead.

Pelle Wall, who was living in his father’s house at the time of his mother’s death, said in court documents that he was “so fearful for his physical safety around his father he has, on occasion, armed himself with knives.” He moved out of his father’s house when he turned 18 and later filed a petition in court to have his siblings removed from the house, saying he was concerned about their safety and that they were “suffering physical, emotional or development injury or damage.”

COLD TURKEY WITHDRAWAL = TRIPOLAR MESS

withdrawal

COLD TURKEY WITHDRAWAL = TRIPOLAR MESS = QUICK TRIP TO HELL

Note: Thank you so very much to Nick Cole for sharing this most important information on the dangers of cold turkey withdrawal from these deadly mind altering medications!!!! As we have warned for two decades coming off these drugs too quickly can even be worse than staying them! (And if you have educated yourself on the effects of these drugs you know how deadly staying on them can be!)

Three years ago today, I checked myself into rehab for prescribed iatrogenic benzodiazepine and psych drug dependence. Not knowing any better and without support to come off of the drugs (that I finally KNEW were the cause of all my years of illness) from my doctor, I allowed them to cold-turkey me from six psychiatric drugs (Klonopin, Xanax, Ambien, Remeron, Seroquel, Adderall). Within months, I was suicidal and psychotic and could no longer cope in that condition.

Going to rehab was the second biggest mistake in my life; the first was ever taking this poison in the first place. They treated me horribly, like a street-junkie and called me an addict, forced me to AA/NA meetings – for medications that my doctor prescribed for me and told me to take regularly for my supposed “mental illness”. What they did to me was criminal, barbaric and medically unsound.

I attempted to reinstate the benzo only (I stayed off of the others) to taper with minimal success, as 4 months had passed in the cold-turkey state and the drugs don’t always work again that far off from a CT. I tapered off of the Valium that I reinstated and have been off for almost 10 months.

Everyday is still a living hell where I’m bed-bound for the majority of the day. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone (except maybe the psychiatrist who is responsible for this inhumane suffering). I am in severe pain, have DP/DR, cognitive dysfunction, a sensation that I’m “on a boat out to sea”, nausea, blurred vision, mood swings, depression and a plethora of other debilitating symptoms with no end in sight. I can barely physically take care of myself and I live alone with no in-person support. I cannot work. I lost my home, my friends, my family and everything that was of any value to me, other than my life which I came scarily close to losing too.

PLEASE DO NOT allow anyone to cold-turkey you from psychiatric drugs. You will be at risk for a severe, protracted withdrawal syndrome that could last for YEARS. Do your research and homework and find someone who has knowledge of tapering these medications to guide you. If your doctor tries to rush you off of your medications- FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR that will support you in a slow taper at a speed your body can tolerate.

I can only hope that with more time I will see more improvements and functionality. Psychiatric drugs are toxic poison which disable the brain and CNS.

The worst part is that I didn’t need ANY of these medications. I allowed a doctor to label me, to drug me and to destroy my life over “work-related stress” which spiraled into polydrugging with multiple psych meds because the more drugs that were added, the more I experienced tolerance and side effects that were MISdiagnosed by a pill-pushing psychiatrist as “mental illness”. It can happen SO easily to anyone who’s vulnerable, trusting and uneducated about the destructive nature of these medications. I thought the same as SO many other psych drug victims- “Surely, my doctor wouldn’t prescribe me something harmful”. I was very terribly WRONG. And when I became sick from the medication, the medical community not only abandoned me as a patient but blamed me for my own suffering.

It is my hope that before I die that we see the “psychiatric drug bubble” burst and the truth revealed about these noxious poisons that are being handed out all over the world to innocent unsuspecting people and children. Until then, I will not give up. I will fight to continue to spread the word about these drugs and the people who prescribe them. And I will continue to fight to reclaim my health that was unfairly stolen from me.

Thank you to everyone in the psych drug withdrawal communities online who have befriended me, supported me and loved me when the rest of the world turned their backs on me, blamed me and wrote me off as “mentally ill” or “not trying hard enough”. Thank you for your validation and for sharing your stories and experiences so candidly so that others can learn from you and not make the same mistakes. All of you are the biggest warriors I have ever met. I wouldn’t be alive today without your support and friendship. You know who you are and I am so grateful for you.

For anyone going through this – keep going. I’m told we all recover and heal with time. As hard as it is, it has to be worth it to be medication-free and healthy; out from underneath the control of doctors and their “medicines”.

Peace and continued healing to each and everyone of you. Much love.

You never know what you’re gonna get…Thank you Psychiatry and Big Pharma. For turning me into a tripolar MESS.

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants and dangers of cold turkey withdrawal any mind altering medication I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant [or Benzo, or Atypical Antipsychotic]!, 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! Done correctly withdrawal does not have to be painful and dangerous.

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these withdrawal reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns due to the rapid withdrawal!

Family: Man who set self on fire in DC was “mentally ill”

DC Man on Fire

Family: Man who set self on fire in DC was “mentally ill”

John Constantino’s burns after setting himself on fire in Washington DC were so severe that authorities needed to use DNA and dental records to identify him. He had carried a can of gasoline with him, poured it over himself, then lit himself on fire. Passing joggers took off their shirts to help put out the flames but he suffered burns over 80% of his body. Police had said Constantino was conscious and breathing at the scene, but he died later that night at a Washington hospital.

Of course the reason I have the words “mentally ill” in parenthesis is because most of these people are not really mentally ill, but having toxic reactions to medications. Remember the Yale study from 2001 Prevda and Bowers looking at the high rate of Bipolar or mania produced via antidepressants. They found that 200,000 patients were documented to have gone manic on SSRI antidepressants. They went on to point out that most doctors do not recognize the mania is caused by the medications stating that the real rate of antidepressant-induced mania would be far higher than that 200,000 figure. And those are only the ones who make it into a hospital. How many more like the thousands of cases documented in our database of cases at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org never made it into a hospital to be treated for their antidepressant-induced mania as this man did not before it was too late for him?

And according to the FDA another way antidepressants can produce a manic psychosis is through any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant or abrupt withdrawal from an antidepressant. They warn the abrupt change can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis which is generally a manic psychosis.

One type of mania that can be produced is pyromania where you have the compulsion to start fires. Combine that with the antidepressant-induced suicidal ideation and this type of tragedy is what you have as an end result. What a horrific thing for this family to suffer! Not one of these tragedies is worth what they or any other family has had to suffer in order for those who continue to demand these drugs to help them feel better. Not when there are safe alternatives for them to use to feel better. The risk to benefit is just NOT there!

ON MEDS: LAS VEGAS DESERT STORM VET SHOOTS DAUGHTER (25) AND SELF

Amanda Landis

Comment from local news media KTNV TV by Ann Blake-Tracy · Top Commenter · Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org) at Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness

“After over two decades of tracking murder/suicides, school shootings, workplace violence and mothers killing their children I can say without hesitation that the answer to this tragedy lies in the prescription drugs the father was taking especially when he was likely being medicated by the VA.

From the article below we read: “Jenice said her husband, who was a Desert Storm vet, had recently been taking prescription drugs and may have been drinking following the argument.”

“I have a current case of diagnosed “homicidal ideation” produced by the antidepressants Celexa and Remeron in a young military man. I am absolutely shocked by the multiple drugs they handed out like candy to him that all interact negatively and then refused to give them for weeks at a time when the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing, can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis!

“The large number of murder/suicides in those you would never expect such behavior from is epidemic and shocking and almost always related to antidepressants or other serotonergic medications!!!”

MOTHER INTERVIEWED IN LAS VEGAS MURDER/SUICIDE OF HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER

North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — The North Las Vegas woman who watched her husband kill himself, just moments after he killed their 25-year-old daughter is speaking out.

“I just hate that they are saying it was a heated family argument. It wasn’t. It was four and a half, five hours later,” Jenice Landis said.

Jenice said she is still trying to figure out how an argument over housework at midnight led her husband, Greg, to kill their daughter, Amanda then himself Sunday morning.

“I just told him, ‘Greg I’m really not feeling good. I really need to sleep can we do this tomorrow. I know this is a ridiculous argument you are having with me.’ And Amanda woke up and said, ‘Dad, leave her alone and let her sleep.’ That is about all there was to the argument,” Jenice said.

Jenice and her daughter were staying in the same room while Jenice recovered from surgery.
They both went to sleep only to be jolted awake around 5 a.m.

“I woke up to gunfire and flashes and gun smoke. I rolled off the bed and I know that is the only reason I am alive, because I felt gunshots going by me and I looked at my daughter and he had shot her in the chest and her chest was nothing but blood and gore,” Jenice said.

Jenice then said her 52-year-old husband turned the gun on himself, leaving her to wonder how the man she was married to for 27 years could do such a thing.

“I didn’t think my husband would ever hurt one of his children. He wasn’t that person,” Jenice said.

Jenice said her husband, who was a Desert Storm vet, had recently been taking prescription drugs and may have been drinking following the argument.

Police said they will not be able to confirm that until they get toxicology results back. For now, Jenice and Amanda’s twin brother are just working to cope with the loss.

“My daughter was a beautiful creature and her life ended way too soon, and I don’t want people to ruin that celebration of her life that we are going to have,” Jenice said.

North Las Vegas Police are not releasing many details about the murder-suicide or details about the fight, saying it is too early in the investigation.

Suspect Dead: Antidepressant Withdrawal: Thursday Afternoon Woman in Capitol Car Chase With Toddler in Car

capitol shooting

Antidepressant Withdrawal: Thursday Afternoon Woman in Capitol Car Chase With Toddler in Car Gunned Down by Police

This sounds like it could be yet another case when it is a woman who rammed a barrier at the Capitol Building before going on a high speed chase with police while a toddler was in the car with her. No word yet on the condition of the child who was rushed to a hospital.

The impulsive actions, the high speed chase, the road rage in ramming a barrier, and doing all of this with a toddler in the car also might include suicide by cop or even murder/suicide by cop. We see all of this far too often with antidepressants and have from the beginning. The term “road rage,” “suicide by cop,” “high speed chase” … all seemed to appear after the introduction of Prozac to the market.

We will keep you updated as it progresses as it has just happened.

Update: The woman was  it was yet another medical professional, a dental hygienist this time, with a “history of “mental illness” which almost always means she had been on antidepressants to induce that mental illness before endangering her child as she did this afternoon in this high speed chase with police after ramming a police car. She had a one year old child in the car with her that was not hurt. So was she given on of these drugs for Post Partum depression?

http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/03/20805397-woman-shot-and-killed-by-capitol-police-after-chaotic-chase-from-white-house?lite

This is yet another sad and tragic case for this woman and her family. If this was her child there is yet another little one who will be growing up without a mother.

I have long said that the largest single group I have in serious trouble on antidepressants are medical professionals. I have gathered a few cases that have just popped up as I have looked for some other articles in the past week. I should have that list ready for you ASAP

Update #2: If you understand these drugs and their effects these cases are so easy to predict. The latest report is according to ABC News, Carey had a history of mental health issues and suffered from post-partum depression.

Miriam Carey has been identified by authorities as a dental hygienist in Connecticut.

Former boss Dr. Barry J. Weiss told The New York Times that he and his partner fired Miriam Carey from their periodontics practice last year and cited her “temper” but would not go into detail.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/03/miriam-carey-capitol-shooting_n_4040115.html?ir=Crime&ref=topbar

Then the Washington Post reported that she has a sister in Brooklyn who is a nurse and another sister who has been a long time New York City police officer.

She was at home in Connecticut two days ago and no one knew she was in DC and were shocked to learn that. She also had no identification with her.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/miriam-carey-dental-hygienist-at-the-center-of-car-chase-and-shooting-near-the-capitol/2013/10/03/ad805fec-2c83-11e3-b139-029811dbb57f_story.html

Update #3: Friday morning reports surfaced that she thought Obama was stalking her and they found the meds we all expected to be there! (Article directly below) Remember all the false accusations of abuse that come with antidepressants. False Memory Syndrome is a term coined not long after Prozac was introduced to the market and has been a main issue in some high profile cases including that of Kobe Bryant and the Wenatchee, Washington sex ring case where the state had to pay out $100 Million for wrongfully imprisoning 43 people for as much as two years on false allegations made by a 10 year old girl in foster care who had been on first Prozac and recently switched to Paxil.

BREAKING NEWS: “Investigators found two medications in the apartment of Miriam Carey: one used to treat schizophrenia and symptoms of bipolar disorder; the other an antidepressant, a law enforcement source briefed on the investigation told CNN.

“Carey’s boyfriend contacted police in December saying he feared for the safety of their child, who was 4 months old at the time, according to a law enforcement source involved in the investigation. The boyfriend said the woman was acting delusional, claiming the president had placed Stamford under lockdown and that her house was under electronic surveillance, the source said.

“He told police that she was suffering from post-partum depression, was having trouble sleeping and was on medication. Carey underwent a mental health evaluation, said the source, …”

http://on.cnn.com/GCpPANp

Update #4: She had been taking the antidepressant Lexapro and the atypical antipsychotic Risperdone….”Authorities who searched Carey’s apartment in Stamford found discharge papers that listed risperidone, a medication to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, a law enforcement source said. They also found paperwork listing escitalopram, an antidepressant commonly prescribed under the brand name Lexapro, according to the source.”

http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/04/politics/u-s-capitol-shooting/index.html?sr=fb100413capitolshootmeds1045p

Update #5: In an interview by Fox 5 out of DC we learn she was in medically supervised withdrawal which will help you understand why the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has since the mid 90’s warned of extreme caution in withdrawal indicating that it should be extremely gradual to avoid serious reactions and a warning now goes out with all our posts. Few doctors know what they are doing in safely withdrawing patients from antidepressants as they are always trying to withdraw patients far too rapidly than they should which the FDA warns can cause suicide, hostility and/or psychosis:

“Her family said she had been suffering from postpartum depression with psychosis but was not dangerous.

“Carey-Jones said her sister had been on medication for postpartum depression but was being taken off the drugs under medical supervision.

“They told her she could get off medication,” Carey-Jones said, adding, “There were no indications she was unstable.”
