ATTENTION UTAH: Meet Me SLC Friday Morning Meeting on Youth Suicide

Maiya, age 6, on Zoloft cries, ‘Mummy I want to go with the angels now.’

Seth, age 5, on Paxil begs, “Daddy Please Kill Me! I Cannot Take This Anymore!

Utah has the highest rate of youth suicide in the world. It is the leading cause of death in youth in Utah where they are losing over 600 children per year!! Never yet that I am aware of in tracking this have antidepressants been discussed as the CAUSE of the high rate of suicide. They are only encouraged as the cure for suicide. Ironic in light of the FDA Black Box Warning issued in 2004 indicating a doubling of suicidal ideation by antidepressants when given to children! PLEASE those of you in Utah join me in standing up for this cause tomorrow morning or I will go alone as I have so often in the past. Someone has to speak up for this atrocity! If we can wake up Utah where the problem is the worst perhaps we can wake up the world! You will find me under the signs that say “Prevent Youth Suicide, Ban Antidepressants!”

Thanks to my ex-Senator Charles Grassley we learned that NAMI (the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) were funded 81% by Pharma explaining why their only solution for mental illness is medication. The head of NAMI was so embarrassed by the disclosure that he stepped down. Now there are other groups like the ones behind this gathering. How much are they getting from Pharma to do the same thing? As I searched through their website it was full of suggestions of medicating children with antidepressants. THIS NEEDS TO END!!!!!!! The announcement for this event follows:

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.

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 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 Problem With States Approving Gay Marriages

Gay Couple

Gay Couple Awaits Marriage License in Utah

I realize that this is something many are very emotional about, but it is an issue where emotions need to be set aside long enough to reason through this one aspect because it could be a matter of life or death.

I lightly touched on this antidepressant adverse reaction in my book on these drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! Because I felt it most important to stop the mass shootings and terrible violence of parents killing their own children as well as all of the sudden suicides that were a result of these drugs, other reactions were put on the back burner. Yet there are SO MANY other absolutely devastating reactions to antidepressants that need to be understood and many of those adverse reactions are sexual in nature.

Obviously there are not many who want to hear this information on antidepressant-induced homosexuality because on one side you have those who firmly believe that this is natural and normal and do not want to hear that it could possibly be anything else. Yet on the other side you have those who want to condem others for acting out and do not want to “give them an excuse” for this type of behavior.

What both sides are missing is that homosexuality CAN BE a medication reaction. Add to that fact that an extremely high percentage of the gay community are in fact taking antidepressants. One of the very first cases I worked on involving Prozac adverse reactions was that of a happily married doctor and father who, much to his surprise, became both homosexual and alcoholic after prescribing Prozac to himself.

The following is the comment I posted on this in the local media today in Salt Lake City where, out of the blue and much to everyone’s surprise, gay marriage was approved on Friday. It is being appealed, but many are scrambling to get their marriages through the system while this is in effect. My statement is a warning to those in that position who have taken antidepressants or are currently on these drugs.

“I have been expecting this to happen in Utah for some time now. In a state that uses so many antidepressants, which can make patients gay via disruption of hormones [in the development stage], it should have been expected.

“In 2000 there were 2000 scientists from around the world who reported their grave concerns about the level of antidepressants in the water supply causing male fish to be born with ovaries! So this aspect of the adverse effects have proven to be even worse than I originally witnessed and reported in my book on antidepressants. [By the way I do not recall 2000 scientists around the world getting together to voice a common concern before this or since!] http://www.alternet.org/speakeasy/martharosenberg/drug-store-your-tap-water-and-fish-prozac

“Far too many patients have reported becoming gay on these drugs. So when I oppose gay marriage my main reason is that when people wean very, very slowly to safely come off their medications they generally go back to heterosexuality.

“So if you are marrying someone who is on these drugs get ready for a surprise when they come off! Or in other words make sure your relationship is not based on a medication side effect!

“(Questions? Google a French case last year where Didier Jambart was awarded more than requested in his lawsuit against a drug maker when his medication, similar to an antidepressant, caused this admitted drug reaction for him. Then read the book Our Stolen Future by Dr. Theo Colburn, which explains it well.)”

And now that you have read that statement you should know that the two main media outlets in Salt Lake City are KSL and the Deseret News. Their reaction to this statement was… Deseret News refused to print it and KSL suspended my account for attempting to post it!!!! Now this was being posted only as a comment on the story that ran on the gay marriages and it was sandwiched in with hundreds of other posts where it likely would not even be read!

My question? Why on earth would they care if it was posted? I backed up what I said and simply issued a warning to those this information might impact. Frankly I was shocked! Do their main advertisers, the drug companies, want to make certain this aspect of medication reactions is never discussed?

My point is that patients have the right to be fully informed about ALL possible reactions to a medication and drug companies have the responsibility to warn which it seems they do everything to avoid doing! A perfect case in point would be the I made post last week about the woman who made the false accusations of sexual abuse against the Duke University players while on antidepressants about six years ago. If someone would have associated the medication reaction of the false accusations of abuse then, she likely would not have remained on these drugs thus suffering more and more toxic reactions (known to produce changes in behavior little different than a brain tumor might) until she murdered her boyfriend two years ago.

Toxic reactions, no matter how they manifest physically, emotionally or behaviorally, must be dealt with because as you continue on the offending medication toxic reactions naturally become worse, not better!

MEDICATION: SUICIDAL UTAH WOMAN PRISON BOUND AFTER FATAL FIRE

 

 

 

Yvette Kimber

YVETTE KIMBER

TWO DIE IN FATAL FIRE WHILE ANOTHER WHO JUMPED TO SAVE HERSELF LATER DIED OF INJURIES

This case happened two years ago. Today she was sentenced to 57 1/2 years in prison – basically a life sentence and just today the news reported the following information below indicating medication use. Of course if she was on medication and suicidal and drinking and starting fires (pyromania) and not knowing if she was trying to commit suicide by starting the fire (because she likely cannot remember what she did) and on top of all that living in Prozacland, Utah we can easily assume that all that would add up to the fact that she was on antidepressants at the time of the crime.

The arson took the lives of three of her friends and neighbors at the apartment complex. Two died in the fire and one jumped from the second story in an attempt to avoid the fire and died the following year from those injuries.

“The night of the fire, Kimber called police and said she was suicidal and planned to overdose on medication, a police affidavit said. One minute after her call, firefighters received notice of the fire.

“Kimber told on-scene officers that she fell asleep holding a lit cigarette. She and her boyfriend fought earlier, she said, and she started drinking beer and taking pills, according to the affidavit. She also admitted to smoking marijuana.

“Kimber told police she dropped the cigarette while sitting on the love seat in her living room and looking at a basketball schedule. The cigarette heated up the love seat and a throw pillow caught fire. Kimber then rushed to a neighbor’s home next door to report the fire.

“(Police) asked Yvette if she, because of her suicidal feelings, lit the fire on purpose,” the affidavit states. “Yvette stated she did not know.”

Patients need to know that due to the strong mind altering affects of antidepressants it is generally the brain that goes dead before the body does when one attempts to overdose on these medications. So the chances are you can do all kinds of out of character things before you die from an overdose.
