ANTIDEPRESSANTS???? Although the latest news as in this article discusses the diagnosis of an inoperable brain tumor I want you to be aware that does not mean an antidepressant was not involved. Doctors FAR TOO OFTEN hand out antidepressants right along with a diagnosis like that. These are given after accidents, surgeries, trauma of any kind. They are given to stop smoking, urinary incontinence, etc., etc., etc. so when anything like this happens the question about medications MUST be asked! That is what I want understood about this suicide. It should not just be dismissed due to this diagnosis.
So if this was a recent diagnosis for cancer there may have also been a recent prescription which clouded his judgement & could easily have triggered suicidal ideation, thus leading to this type of dramatic & sure manner of suicide. So, antidepressants MAY have been involved anyway. Let’s wait & see what we learn. Robbing someone of any time they may have been allotted on earth is NOT okay especially if it was not their real intention to leave in such a way but was medication-induced!

EARLIER: A source has revealed to ABC news that Tony Scott, director of “Top Gun” and “Crimson Tide,” was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer.
Scott took his own life on Sunday by jumping off a bridge in Los Angeles, California. At approximately 12:35 p.m., several bystanders alerted the authorities that someone had jumped from Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island in Los Angeles Harbor.
“I can confirm that Tony Scott has passed away. The family asks that their privacy is respected at this time,” Simon Halls, the director’s spokesperson, said in a statement.
Investigators found contact information in Scott’s Toyota Prius and a suicide note in his office.
The English-born director directed dozens of blockbuster successes — from “Beverly Hills Cop II” to “True Romance” — and has left an indelible impression on the film world.
