Ann has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Cymbalta, Pristiq, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel, Risperdal, and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants. Last May she testified, along with other experts, before the Danish Parliament on the brain damage produced by antidepressants.
Since 1992 she has testified as an expert witness in Prozac and other SSRI related court cases around the world. Some of the more high profile cases she has worked on would be the murder/suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife Brynn, the Columbine & Red Lake School shootings,
Andrea Yates – the Texas mother who drowned her five children, the Atlanta Day Trader, Princess Di’s death, the murder/suicide of the royal family of Nepal, Anna Nicole Smith’s son Daniel’s death, etc.
Ann Blake-Tracy will amaze you with documentation as to how often these drugs have lurked silently behind the scenes of major headlines worldwide!! To get an idea of how often and the types of reactions we are seeing in the news go to www.drugawareness.org for breaking news cases and www.ssristories.net www.ssristories.drugawareness.org for our database of 1000’s of articles on patients on these drugs and the adverse results appearing as headlines which Ann Blake Tracy and our Texas director, Rosie Meysenburg have been gathering since the introduction of the first SSRI antidepressant, Prozac. With only two individuals gathering the cases it makes it clear that this shocking list is only the tip of this iceberg!
Her first book on the issue was published in 1991. What scientists are just now learning about these drugs she spelled out in this book and other early writings. She has participated in innumerable radio, television, newspaper and magazine interviews since 1989.
We know of no one with such extensive experience and expertise on all of these issues surrounding the SSRI antidepressants as Ann Blake-Tracy. She knows this issue like no one you have ever met! Her latest book on the Prozac family of antidepressants: “PROZAC: PANACEA OR PANDORA? – Our Serotonin Nightmare” (2001) is the product of many, many years of intensive research, and the cases of approximately 1,000 patients on a long-term basis.
Ann Blake Tracy also has an hour and a half long audio tape and/or CD, “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!,” which explains the safest withdrawal methods from these antidepressants discovered via trial & error over the past two decades and how to rebuild the body and brain after the use of these drugs – the product of many years working with patients in withdrawal from antidepressants and patients with serious adverse reactions to antidepressants.
Ann Blake Tracy has appeared on or consulted for television presentations for FOX News, Court TV, the History Channel, CNN, PBS programs, Dateline and 20/20, the Geraldo Show, the Leeza Gibbons Show, the Montel Williams Show, the Maury Povich Show and numerous local news programs. She has also appeared on many national radio shows over the past 20 years such as NPR, Coast to Coast, the Jeff Rense Show, and the Alex Jones Show. Internationally she has appeared in the US, Canada, Finland, UK, Russia. Ireland, and is currently working on one in Germany and another in Australia.
Ann has also appeared in two major film documentaries released the end of 2005, The Drugging of Our Children, by award-winning documentary filmmaker Gary Null, which contains interviews with Michael Moore and Neil Bush agreeing on the subject of the horrors of giving our children drugs; (This movie is available in its entirety in the link below) and the movie Prescription Suicide, a look into the lives of families who experienced firsthand the tragedy of antidepressants, produced by five-time Emmy Award winning Hollywood producer Robert Manciero. And she has just done an interview for the sequel to American Addict, which is currently the number one movie on Netflix.

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!
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!
