Eddie Ray Routh
Even though “Routh had been diagnosed with a variety of conditions, including psychosis, paranoia, schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress.” And his own victim Chris Kyle, stated just before Routh killed him that Routh was: “straight up nuts” plus he had only been out of a psych ward for a week, released on an anti-psychotic drug, yet the Texas jury did not find him not guilty by reason of insanity??? Chris Kyle’s description of Routh could clearly be used to describe both the justice system and the defense team as well as the prosecution in this case – straight up nuts!
Here is the list of Eddie Routh’s medications according to his father…was he dropped off these to be put on an antipsychotic the week before the killing? Clearly no one considered an antidepressant withdrawal psychosis which the FDA warns of in abrupt changes in dose of antidepressants.
“They prescribed eight medications for his son, which, according to Raymond [Eddie’s father], were placed in “one of those gallon baggies.” Among the drugs were lithium, which treats mania; prazosin, which can help decrease nightmares; and Zoloft, an antidepressant that is a common treatment for P.T.S.D. Raymond said that the cocktail of pharmaceuticals “made Eddie worse,” adding, “I ain’t no doctor. I ain’t no rocket scientist or nothing, but I could tell a difference in him.”
Since I have been testifying in these cases since 1992 I will be doing a radio show on this case with Capt. Joyce Riley on her program the Power Hour http://www.thepowerhour.com/ on March 9, 2015. Our interview will be during the last hour of her show and right after Andrea Yates’ attorney, George Parnham, discusses Andrea’s mental health..

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, 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!
WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: http://store.drugawareness.org/ And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan.
