Drugawareness.org YouTube Channel – Teens on SSRIs

Jamie Tierney

It seems few of you are aware that the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has its own YouTube Channel with lots of information there. Once you subscribe to the Drugawareness Channel you will automatically be notified as we send out new videos – something we are gearing up to do a lot of in the near future as we comb through all of my older videos and recordings.

Find one video below as an example of some of the videos you will find there.

And here is a direct link to the videos on our YouTube channel: http://www.drugawareness.org/videos/

The following example is a news piece that covers the experience of two teens, Christopher Pitman & Jamie Tierney. At age 12 Chris was prescribed Paxil and then Zoloft and after only a few months killed the two people he loved the most, his grandparents, and then proceeded to burn the house down with their bodies still inside. Jamie at 15 became suicidal and full of rage after being given Effexor for migraine headaches.

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

In posting the new information over the next few months I would hope it would give you a good picture of how much information has been out there for how long and what all has been accomplished at this point. If you are wondering why these antidepressants are still on the market from what you are seeing and learning currently, just wait until you see all that has already transpired and the information that has been out on the drugs for years now.

I have long said that those beginning to see this situation with these drugs need desperately to learn the history behind what has already transpired. We will also be including some very long, in depth, radio interviews on these drugs that will teach you things you have not yet heard anywhere else even though they are over a decade old. I encourage you to listen and learn and share with others so that they can see this antidepressant fiasco for what it really is.

CELEXA & BACLOFEN: Suicide of Australian Model Charlotte Dawson

Charlotte Dawson

CHARLOTTE DAWSON

“According to one friend, Dawson was fixated on an anti-anxiety drug that she thought would help her quit drinking. Fairfax Media understands Dawson was taking Baclofen, a muscle relaxant that French cardiologist Olivier Ameisen claimed had cured him of drinking alcohol, sparking international headlines. ”She looked a million dollars when I saw her last week,” a friend said. ”She had given up drinking and was talking about an anti-depressant she was taking … Charlotte subscribed to the theory ‘you take a pill for everything’. She sent me the link to a story on this drug, believing it would help her.”

The first question should be who on earth got her to believe that a muscle relaxant was an anti-anxiety drug?

Now that sure makes a lot of sense! She was taking an SSRI to increase serotonin … when the main function of serotonin is constriction of muscle tissue and then she took Baclofen, a muscle relaxer? Hmmm….did her body know which direction it was going?! And the muscle relaxer was suppose to help her stop drinking?!!!!!! HOW INSANE IS THAT?!!! Sounds like a terrible mix to me and if she had weaned off the antidepressant the cravings for alcohol would have been gone if only she had know that antidepressants cause cravings for alcohol! http://www.drugawareness.org/book-excerpts/ssris-and-alcohol

UT NAMI Calls for Full Medicaid Expansion

 

NAMINATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR MENTAL ILLNESS (NAMI)

Yesterday a rally was held on Capitol Hill in Salt Lake City to promote a bill that would bring in federal funding to medicate even more people in Utah through Medicaid!!! SALT LAKE CITY — The Capitol rotunda echoed Thursday with voices touting the importance of treatment for mental health and substance abuse disorders. And joining in the chorus were cries for full Medicaid expansion.

Among those was my old friend from talk radio days, now Senator Jim Dabakis, pointing out that the Fed is offering almost half a billion dollars to medicate more in Utah!!! Jim should know better but even he was shouting to take the money.

“Washington has a check for $430 million made out to the state of Utah,” Sen. Jim Dabakis, D-Salt Lake City, said to an excited and thunderous crowd.

“Speaker Lockhart, take the money,” Dabakis shouted. “It’s simple. We need that money. We don’t need ideological points. We don’t need political points. Our families, 120,000 of them, are desperate for that money. This is not the time to play political games. Take the money.”

My posted comment on this in Utah media is: “Oh my gosh! Utah has still not woken up to this Pharmacuetical lobbyist group that calls themselves National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI)?!

“Senator Charles Grassley led the probe into NAMI about six or seven years ago which found at least 75% of NAMI’s funding comes directly from drug companies. So embarrassed by this revelation was the national head of NAMI that he stepped down from his position. If Medicaid Expansion is approved who benefits? The drug companies and NAMI do!

“But what about patients? Reading the book “Mad in America” would answer that or reading a package insert for these “medications” will demonstrate they increase mental illness rather than cure it, thus making an even larger market for Pharma. For instance Postpartum psychosis normally occurs in one of 1000 yet take an antidepressant for postpartum depression and the chance of psychosis is increased 1000% to one of 100 (find 1% psychosis in the antidepressant package insert) Or stop the antidepressant rapidly and the FDA warns you can produce psychosis.

“So, simply have the government expand funding for medications which produce psychosis and sell more anti-psychotic medications – simple math? Welcome to marketing in America!”

As I did a quick search for NAMI just through one newspaper there to see if anything was ever printed about Senator Grassley’s probe of NAMI’s funding I was shocked to pull up on just the first page three obituaries calling for donations to be made to NAMI!!! And why is that shocking? It is shocking because I have little doubt that all three of these people died from the so called “treatments” that NAMI is promoting – the same “treatment” these people are rallying to bring more money to fund while WE foot the bill, thus making us a party to those deaths!

The most horrific of those three deaths I know was produced by these drugs. That was gruesome murder of Joyce Dexter, 84, the grandmother of 21 year old Zachary Weston who under the influence of Zoloft and Zyprexa stabbed his grandmother 111 times, even slicing her abdomen open,  just over a year ago. http://www.drugawareness.org/zoloft-zyprexa-grandson-stabs-grandmother-111-times/ Two years before the attack Zach was court ordered “to undergo a mental health evaluation and complete any recommended treatment” after shoving his mother in an argument.

This is the type of “treatment” this money NAMI is rallying Utah law makers for currently will fund. So now the question is: “Just how many more grandmothers will suffer a similar fate as Utah accepts this absolutely staggering amount  of money?” And if you think Utah is the only state or the US the only country, in which pharmaceutical front groups like NAMI are accomplishing the same type of funding for Pharma, you need to think again!!!

If you read my 2004 report before the FDA Advisory Committee on antidepressants http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda you will see that the neurotransmitter, serotonin, which is increased by antidepressants is almost identical chemically to the hallucinogenics LSD or PCP.  Serotonin mimics LSD or PCP. Elevated serotonin is what is found in psychosis, schizophrenia, mania (Bipolar), suicide, depression, anxiety, Autism, anorexia, drug and alcohol abuse, violent crime, impulsive acts with no concern for punishment, argumentative behavior, rage, pedophilia, etc.  Antidepressants are designed to gradually increase serotonin levels over time and because it  is a gradual process it gives the appearance that the patient is going insane rather than the fact it should be an expected result of the drug itself! Making the situation even more disturbing is the fact that abrupt withdrawal from an antidepressant is known to produce suicide, hostility or psychosis, according to FDA warnings on withdrawal. Most general practitioners are unaware of this and mistakenly increase the dose or stop medication all together not knowing the withdrawal must be painstakingly slow and thus only making matters worse.

Ann Blake Tracy Interviewed on Jeff Rense Show 1/22/2014

 

jeff show with me

Listen to latest interview with Ann Blake Tracy on the Jeff Rense Show from just a few weeks ago …. and just in case you think anyone is immune from this serotonin nightmare let me share that I learned yesterday that a friend, only 41 years old, was buried last Thursday after dying in her sleep. I will need to check her current medications but a year ago it was a few including Neurontin and Topamx after having an initial reaction to Reglan which caused seizures for her. Of course before that Lexapro caused her adverse reactions. She was already hypoglycemic and Reglan causes serious blood sugar reactions that for her led to seizures. Then some idiot doctor had told her to drink Dr. Pepper for that of all things!!!! She had just gotten married on Christmas so will her poor new husband be next as doctors rush to medicate him for his loss?

There is MUCH more that is associated with this case that I will share as soon as I am able to do a little more investigation. She and I had discussed it several times. She clearly understood the dangers of antidepressants worrying often about her mother and sister who are both still on the drugs but yet still tragically placing her faith in the new drugs she was being given. Even worse is the fact that we were working to tie in the murder of her infant daughter years ago by another young child to antidepressants as well. For her I will continue the search for that information. I have little doubt at this point as the information we have gathered currently is overwhelming, but I want a final confirmation. And when I do … what we now know to be a nightmare with these drugs will prove to be the worst nightmare any of us could ever imagine!

Then this morning I awoke to more tragic news – the suicide of a dear friend who I did not realize had become “depressed” over the recent loss of his mother. Although antidepressants are NOT approved for situation depression – depression brought on by something like a death or relationship break-up, etc. – I am sure there were plenty of doctors offering him an antidepressant to get him through this. He was Jewish and it has been my experience over the past 25 years of specializing in antidepressants, that Jewish people generally do not handle these drugs well. It is likely due to the P450 2D6 liver enzyme system impairment that can run through various races and families thus making it more difficult to metabolize the antidepressant. When that happens of course it will cause the drug to build to toxic levels faster than it would for most. He too was way too young … (Click link below to continue and to listen to the radio interview)

Straight A Student Kills Two in Moscow School Before Surrendering

Russian school

Russian student being escorted from school after shooting

In Moscow today a high achieving student walked into his school with a rifle and gunned down a teacher and a police officer before his own father was able to persuade him to surrender the gun. The father first spoke with his son over the phone and then in person after he raced to the school. Now the boy will undergo a mental evaluation.

In the fall of 2007 a camera crew from a Russian news station came to my home in Des Moines, IA to interview me, film me giving a lecture to a group, and follow me around for a day. Their goal was to prevent what they saw here in America from happening in Russia by getting the truth about antidepressants and violence to the people of Russia.

The news crew even went to Israel to interview a young Russian woman who was one of the early cases I worked on. She and her Israeli fiancé had been attending school at the University of Utah when he first contacted me. She had started on birth control pills which caused her some very serious psychiatric side effects. So she was put on what was thought to be the “cure all” at the time, Prozac.

After being put on Prozac she became psychotic/manic so she was hospitalized at that point and they dropped her off Prozac to put her on Paxil! Of course that only made matters far worse and she became so suicidal that her fiancé could not allow her out of his sight even for a minute to go to the bathroom alone or she would attempt suicide again. So her fiancé, a brain chemist who felt he should have recognized this sooner, handcuffed her to him in order to save her life.

His plan worked and she filed suit against the drug makers and was given a gag order after settling like so many others who have sued and settled. But she lived because of her fiancé’s determination to save her any way possible even though he told me he was still frightened because she still had her teeth she could use as a weapon! 🙂

One interesting thing they told me is that even though they were atheists the only way they could describe her was as if she were possessed. She would even speak in a man’s voice.

They are doing very well. Both have graduated in their fields and have a family of their own now and they know to NEVER EVER take an antidepressant! She even traveled with me to Denver to testify to the Colorado congressmen looking into the cause of the shooting at Columbine.

So if you are thinking any country is safe and protected from this Serotonin Nightmare in which we all find ourselves, THINK AGAIN! Now we wait to see if this young man is among the 97% of school shooters on antidepressants or among the 3% who are not. Find a database of those shootings here: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/

Additional Critical Information on School Shootings

Prophetic statement to me by a pharmacist on school shootings (1999):

“The symptoms I see in patients who abuse serotonergic drugs of any form…could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (over confidence in ones own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abusers life, coldness and lack of humanity). I feel that in twenty years or less we will be confronted not with one Hitler but with thousands or millions… numbers so great that we will be forced to interact with their distorted thinking on a daily basis. (Littleton, CO., Riverton, KS., Jonesboro, AR., eventually little Hitlers in every town in America will grow up into BIG HITLERS) It is happening right now.

“The most insidious factor about long-term serotonin abuse is that it enhances the individuals persona to the point that they are able to manipulate others into their way of thinking just as Hitler did. This causes the distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and loss of morality to spread like a contagion to otherwise normal people who have not even been exposed to the drugs. Those on the drugs are converted by the pharmacologic/physiologic processes into sociopathic demagogues.

“Do you have any comments on these thoughts, Ann? Please respond. Tell me we are not the only ones who see what is happening to our world!” (From Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare)

The REAL State of the Union in just 889 words…

This was just too good not to share today! Simon Black is one of my most favorite – very bright when it comes to finances – financial advice I am hoping I will need soon when these drugs are finally off the market and I can get on with my life so that I once again have any money to worry about knowing what to do with it!

When this came in my email this morning I thought the only thing missing from this is the serotonin nightmare in which we now live in this nation as the highest users of antidepressants….shockingly senseless and extremely violent murders and suicides, school shootings, workplace violence, road rage, air rage, skyrocketing divorce, female school teachers molesting male students, entire families being wiped out in murder/suicides, an epidemic of antidepressant-induced Bipolar completely disabling the lives of so many, etc., etc.

Sometimes I have to wonder if one reason for all this is to distract us from seeing what is really going on in this nation? So I share with you the REAL State of the Union from Simon Black … ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT and WELL WORTH THE READ!

state of the union

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of Congress, fellow citizens:

This summer we will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.

This senseless, destructive war was started and championed by politicians who cared nothing for the 9 million people who lost their lives.

And in doing so, they began a century of warfare which continues to this day.

Our military industrial complex is larger than ever. We have nearly 2 million troops and national guardsmen, plus 3.5 million civilians employed in the defense sector.

With such awesome capabilities, we continue to resort to violence and death to exact political goals which benefit a tiny elite.

All of this has created a police state in the Land of the Free that is a far cry from the country we all grew up in.

Your government has spawned a culture of fear and intimidation. Nearly every federal agency, including the Fish and Wildlife Service, has its own gun-toting police force to pistol-whip citizens into submission.

And we’re stocking up. Your government has recently procured 1.6 BILLION rounds of hollow-point ammunition to supplement our existing supplies.

But frankly, we don’t need guns to harass citizens.

Our tax authorities have become more threatening than mafia warlords. The plunder is so severe that record numbers of Americans are renouncing their citizenship and leaving the country.

There are now dozens of federal, state, and local agencies and courts which have the power to confiscate your assets without any due process.

In addition to your house, your business, and your savings, we also have the authority to take your children away from you as if they are property of the state.

We are here to tell you what you can and cannot put in your own body, or whether you can collect rainwater that falls on own property.

In fact, on any given business day, the federal government issues hundreds of pages of new ‘rules’, proposed regulations, draft bills, executive orders, and/or regulatory notices.

And if you are not compliant with these rules, you may be committing a crime. Whether you know it or not.

When this nation was founded, there were four federal crimes on the books. Today there are THOUSANDS. Plus we have millions of government employees at all levels to enforce the penalties.

All of this, of course, is financed by you the tax slave.

You (plus unborn generations) are the poor suckers charged with paying off the national debt we politicians have created….

No, this may not be the country that you all grew up in. But it is the state of our union… whatever remains of it.

(Click link below to continue reading the full statement – trust me it is worth the read!)

Medicated & Depressed FL Mother Who Killed Her 2 Teens Seemed “Off”

Berman Family

Jacqueline, Alexander and Jennifer Berman

Jennifer Berman emailed her ex-husband on Monday to say that she intended to ‘do harm’. Mr. Berman rushed to the home only to find her body was later along with her children Alexander and Jacqueline who had all been shot dead at their Florida home in West Palm Beach. Jennifer Berman had killed them all.

From the clips below from several news articles listed we can see all of the typical clues that those of us who know what to look for would find. Those are highlighted in bold.

1…..”…another neighbor said he suspected something was wrong with Mrs Berman when he saw her over the weekend.

‘I looked into her eyes and she just had this weird look,” said 69-year-old Marian Sklodowski.

‘She had tried to sell me her house for a knockdown price because she wanted the money quick. I knew her very well, and I had never seen this look on her face.

‘She was just off. There was nothing there behind the eyes. I told my wife, but she said I should not get involved.
‘I just wish I had said something now because we have this awful tragedy.’

2…..Their mother, Jennifer Berman, appeared “off” recently, according to neighbor Marian Sklodowski, who lives across the street. “The last time, compared to the first time, something was missing. Something was missing. What was missing, I don’t know,” said Sklodowski.

“Just two days ago, when Sklodowski last saw and spot Jennifer Berman, he said, she appeared upset, disappointed and confused. “You can notice that, from the face, from the eyes, something was strange in her face,” said Sklodowski.

“Just across the street, neighbor Sheren Kirk also noticed something was not right as of late. “It’s shocking that it happened, but, I think, they had a lot of stress,” said Kirk. “There’s been a divorce; there’s been financial problems.”

“A few houses down from Kirk, resident Tim Frank said after the divorce, Jennifer Berman seemed distraught about the future and her kids. “She anticipated that it was going to be very tough for her to move on,” said Frank.

3…..”Two of Jennifer’s cousins who didn’t want to be named said Berman previously threatened to harm herself, but never the children. Police said the morning of the shootings, Jennifer Berman sent emails to Richard Berman and other family members and said she was going to harm herself and the children.
Kaufman said on behalf of Richard Berman that if Richard ever thought Jennifer Berman was a danger to the kids, Richard “would have gone to the end of the earth to stop it.”

“Jennifer Berman was devastated after the loss of her father, grandmother and most recently, her mother, said a cousin who wished not to be named. Jennifer Berman, who was working as a caretaker for a 99-year-old man, had been depressed for a while. The cousin believed she was on medication but wasn’t sure if it was a sleeping aid or for depression.

“Jennifer Berman, an only child, felt alone when she was left without the three people closest to her, the cousin said, and her depression developed as the deadline neared to leave her home. Jennifer Berman’s mother owned the home on Pershing Way and when Jennifer and Richard were going through financial troubles, they moved in. The cousin said Jennifer felt the house was her last connection to her mother.

“Her mother and her were very close,” she said. “I don’t think she would have done any of this if her mother was still alive. I feel like because she was leaving her mom’s home I think the depression turned into psychosis.”

[This is often a time when medication doses are increased or changed – a time when the FDA warns that an abrupt change in dose (whether up or down) can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis.]

“The cousin said Jennifer Berman had previously threatened suicide and was battling with the thought of it

UT Police Officer Kills Wife, 2 Children, Mother-in-law & Self

Boren Family

Joshua “Jaden” (7), Joshua (34), Kelly (32), Haley (5) Boren

All above were found dead in the small Utah community of Spanish Fork along with Kelly’s mother, 55-year-old Marie King. It appeared that all died of gunshot wounds.

Joshua had spent 7 years with the UT County Sheriff’s department before he began working for the Lindon Police Department. There has been no report of a suicide note, but there are reports of problems with the marriage a couple of months ago along with a brief separation.

Clues in this case are many mainly because it was in Utah, which has long been one of the highest users of antidepressants in the nation, A new mandatory program for addressing mental health and on job stressors has just recently been put into place in Joshua’s department. And anyone in Utah knows the first line of treatment for relationship issues or stressors of any type or just about anything that ails you is an antidepressant.

The following is what I just posted in local media on the case and in answer to someone who had just brought up soldiers not asking for help because they are afraid their rights to firearms will be taken from them:

“How right you are and how right they are about their rights to own firearms! I put a blog out on that very issue last week. But in refusing treatment (which is generally antidepressants) they do not remain unhelped because antidepressants do not help with anxiety disorders. Instead they cause them according to research indicating that anxiety, depression, psychosis and suicide are all related to elevated serotonin levels rather than low serotonin levels.

“That has been known since the mid 50’s. In 2000 Dr. Murray Esler in Australia did research on those suffering anxiety disorders and found that they had serotonin levels eight times higher than normal! He then began asking as I have for over two decades why antidepressants are being prescribed for anxiety disorders which will further elevate their serotonin. In fact the latest research shows that antidepressants cause long term depression and it is my opinion after over two decades working with these patients that they also suffer long-term anxiety and Dr. Esler’s research would explain why that is so.

“Since the FDA warned in 2006 that anyone under the age of 25 has double the chance of suicide when they take antidepressants, which is generally the age of our military, why are we not realizing this is where the high rate of suicide is coming from among the troops? Did we all fail math?!

“Cases of murder/suicide as we have seen this week in UT were basically unheard of before these SSRI antidepressants. We have built a database of thousands of cases that can be found on our website if you Google “drugawareness” and “ssristories.” In both of the murder/suicides this week there was indication of possible prescriptions for these drugs….

“In Kyler’s case she had just lost her grandfather who she said was her whole “heart and soul”. This happened in mid Oct.

“In Joshua’s case he and his wife had had some marital difficulties in the past few months and the department had started a program to look for possible mental issues to insure they were treated. It takes so little to be prescribed an antidepressant – especially in Utah! Someone needs to ask in both of these tragedies. They are coming in at such a high rate that I cannot even begin to keep up now after tracking them for over two decades! The public has got to wake up from this serotonin nightmare!”

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!

UT Mother and Two Daughters Dead in Murder/Suicide

Syracuse Murder Suicide

Syracuse Mother and Two Daughters Dead

Kyler

Kyler (32), Kenadee (13), Isabella (7)

UPDATE: 1/17/13: See latest news below stating link to “history of depression” ….

Tuesday evening the news broke that three bodies had been found in this home after neighbors heard what they thought to be gun shots. This morning police announced that it was a mother and her two daughters who were found dead. Police identify them as Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva, 32, and her two daughters — Kenadee Oliva, 13, and Isabella Oliva, 7. What an absolutely beautiful mother and daughters! We are still waiting to learn who killed whom. Be it mother or daughter who was doing the shooting, in both cases we find the use of antidepressants to be very, very high. (It has been confirmed that mother was the shooter.)

Here is one comment from Kyler’s Facebook page indicating there were some health issues:

  • Thanks for your input Kyler..I am so sick of Drs and their guessing games but I am with you on the signs…hopefully next year will be much better for us all..love you Sweetpea be happy

Well mid Oct appears to have been a perfect time for the prescribing of an antidepressant or the increase in an existing one. This was Kyler’s post about her grandfather who passed away then. He died days after this post: Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva

  • October 10, 2013
    My grandpa, who is my heart amd soul, my hero, my love is passing from this world to the next soon. I’m not much of a prayer but please pray for his wife and our family.
    And sadly the youngest child,  Bella,  had her seventh birthday just Saturday the 11th.

To indicate how completely out of character such a violent act as this murder/suicide was for Kyler … she posted this on her Facebook page just three weeks ago:

The following is the comment I posted in the local news on this case – something all of us should be doing when these tragedies happen. I would have posted our database of cases (www.ssristories.drugawareness.org) mentioned if this news source allowed links but they do not.

“David W. you are correct that it is rare for a mother to take the lives of her children, but not when the mother is on an antidepressant. After tracking such cases for 25 years in building a database of these cases, which has been used in scientific studies, I suspected such to be the case last night when the news first broke and called a friend in the neighborhood to confirm that.

“Our research indicates over 90% of these mothers are taking or in a few cases have just abruptly discontinued the use of an antidepressant. And it was 15 years ago now that I did the Leeza Gibbons Show addressing this very issue. Sadly nothing has changed since then other than the increased frequency of the cases – little different than what we have found with well over 90% of school shooters being on antidepressants. Curious that both were extremely rare before the introduction of these new designer antidepressants which now have both suicidal and homicidal ideation (compulsive thoughts) listed as potential side effects.

“In this case I once again await confirmation of that connection to these drugs while I continue to wait for the world to see the evidence I have seen in over two decades of testifying as an expert witness in these cases.

“Why post here? Because this is a public safety issue that never should have remained hidden from the general public due to vested interests. Even in doing the Leeza Gibbons Show we were told as we walked onto the stage that we would be allowed to say the word “antidepressant” but we were not to say the brand names of the drugs “because of our advertisers.”

Depression connection mentioned 1/17/13:

“On Tuesday, Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva, 32, shot her two daughters, Kenadee Oliva, 13, and Isabella Oliva, 7, in their Syracuse home before killing herself.

“The mother had just broken up with her fiance and told him to leave their home. Close friend Pegi Butler said Ramsdell-Oliva had fought depression, but things in her life had improved in recent years. She confessed to Butler that she still loved the man deeply but was heartbroken. Still, Butler never suspected she or the girls were in any danger when they spoke on Sunday.”

In another article Pegi Butler went on to say, “Over the past three years, Butler was hopeful Ramsdell-Oliva was conquering the depression she had fought through her youth, agreeing to participate in counseling and getting her life running smoothly.”

So with being treated for depression for so many years it is clear to me she was either currently on an antidepressant or in withdrawal from one when the shooting occurred.
