EPIDEMIC OF MOTHERS (AND NOW GRANDMOTHERS!) KILLING CHILDREN
Leeza Gibbons with Dr. Ann Blake-Tracy addresses the issue of mothers on antidepressants killing their children. Cases discussed: Robert Kirkwood whose wife killed their two small children and herself while on Effexor. Christina Riggs, a nurse whose case is featured here being interviewed from prison, was on Amitriptyline (Elavil) when she killed her two small children. She was not successful in her own suicide attempt, but the state of Arkansas completed that suicide for her after she refused to appeal or do anything else to defend herself so they would kill her. Be sure to read the science below about how antidepressants cause this type of completely out of character violence.
In the early 1990’s the world began to see something they had rarely seen before – an epidemic of mothers killing their children and doing so by more and more violent methods. Those around them were generally in shock by these actions and the one main common denominator was the use of an antidepressant by the mother who had killed her children. These were often described as the very best and most caring mothers. No one could believe what they were seeing. In the summer of 1999 Leeza Gibbons agreed to do a show on this issue even though we were not allowed to mention the brand names of the medications because of their advertisers. Now that drug company advertising is so prolific you see no shows like this any longer. Watch the full show here:
ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE
What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.
This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.
EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE
What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study: https://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/
