The results of this new study out just days ago, on September 14, 2017, found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users and they also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks! (Please note that a study involving “hundreds of thousands” is an absolutely massive number for a research study to include.) “The researchers reviewed studies involving hundreds of thousands of people and found that antidepressant users had a 33% higher chance of death than non-users. Antidepressant users also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks. The findings were published today in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.”
Anyone familiar with the mode of death produced by too much serotonin, a toxic condition known as Serotonin Syndrome, should be aware that the high levels of serotonin, which accumulate from the Serotonin Reuptake Inhibition process, produce death by shutting down multiple major organs. Keeping that in mind please look at this quote about this research: “It’s widely known that brain serotonin affects mood, and that most commonly used antidepressant treatment for depression blocks the absorption of serotonin by neurons. It is less widely known, though, that all the major organs of the body—the heart, kidneys, lungs, liver—use serotonin from the bloodstream. Antidepressants [Along with any other drug that has Serotonin Reuptake Inhibiting Properties] block the absorption of serotonin in these organs as well, and the researchers warn that antidepressants could increase the risk of death by preventing multiple organs from functioning properly.”
Antidepressant medications, most commonly prescribed to reduce depression and anxiety, increase the risk of death, according to new findings by a McMaster-led team of researchers.

Antidepressant users also had a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks. The findings were published today in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.
“We are very concerned by these results. They suggest that we shouldn’t be taking antidepressant drugs without understanding precisely how they interact with the body,” says author Paul Andrews, an associate professor at McMaster University who led the research team.
Taken by one in eight adult Americans, antidepressants are among the most frequently used medications. They are often prescribed by family doctors without a formal diagnosis of depression, on the assumption they are safe. Since depression itself can be deadly—people with depression are at an increased risk of suicide, stroke and heart attack—many physicians think that antidepressants could save lives by reducing depressive symptoms.
However, McMaster researcher and co-author Marta Maslej, says, “Our findings are important because they undermine this assumption. I think people would be much less willing to take these drugs if they were aware how little is known about their impact outside of the brain, and that what we do know points to an increased risk of death.”
Benoit Mulsant, a psychiatrist at the University of Toronto who was also involved in the study, says the findings point to the need for more research on how antidepressants actually do work.
“I prescribe antidepressants even though I do not know if they are more harmful than helpful in the long-term. I am worried that in some patients they could be, and psychiatrists in 50 years will wonder why we did not do more to find out,” Mulsant says.
Interestingly, the news about antidepressants is not all bad. The researchers found that antidepressants are not harmful for people with cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. This makes sense since these antidepressants have blood-thinning effects that are useful in treating such disorders. Unfortunately, this also means that for most people who are in otherwise good cardiovascular health, antidepressants tend to be harmful.

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:

One of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded has caused damage on several islands, including Barbuda, Anguilla and St. Martin
FOR ALL THOSE ON MEDICATIONS & HOW THIS STORM MAY IMPACT YOU
For years I have warned about the issues that could arise due to any type of emergency that could lead to patients not being able to get their medications for a period thus being forced into abrupt withdrawal. When the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose, whether increasing or decreasing the dose can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis this is a serious concern. And when you know how many pharmaceutical company manufacturing plants are based in Puerto Rico, North Carolina and New Jersey which may all be in the wake of this storm it could cause even some longer term problems with availability.
FOR ALL THOSE IN THE WAY OF THE STORM ON MEDICATIONS
Florida officials began ordering evacuations as Hurricane Irma intensifies to a Category 5 storm. Anyone in the target zone of Irma please be safe and don’t forget your medical directives and medication. See if it’s possible to get early refills due to the storm. People were forced into cold turkey withdrawal in recent hurricanes from their prescription medications because they didn’t anticipate the damage and the difficulties in getting refills after the storms.
Latest Alert from Florida: The state of Florida has ordered all prescriptions to be refilled even if it is not time yet. Basically they said “get all your prescriptions now because the pharmacies have been told to fill them, then get out of harm’s way.”
FLORIDA LAW CONCERNING ADVANCED SCRIPTS
(1) In the event a pharmacist receives a request for a prescription refill and the pharmacist is unable to readily obtain refill authorization from the prescriber, the pharmacist may dispense:
(a) A one-time emergency refill of up to a 72-hour supply of the prescribed medication; or
(b) A one-time emergency refill of one vial of insulin to treat diabetes mellitus.
(2) If the Governor issues an emergency order or proclamation of a state of emergency, the pharmacist may dispense up to a 30-day supply in the areas or counties affected by the order or proclamation, provided that:
(a) The prescription is not for a medicinal drug listed in Schedule II appearing in chapter 893.
(b) The medication is essential to the maintenance of life or to the continuation of therapy in a chronic condition.
(c) In the pharmacist’s professional judgment, the interruption of therapy might reasonably produce undesirable health consequences or may cause physical or mental discomfort.
(d) The dispensing pharmacist creates a written order containing all of the prescription information required by this chapter and chapters 499 and 893 and signs that order.
(e) The dispensing pharmacist notifies the prescriber of the emergency dispensing within a reasonable time after such dispensing.
History.—ss. 19, 27, ch. 86-256; s. 3, ch. 89-77; s. 59, ch. 91-137; s. 6, ch. 91-156; s. 4, ch. 91-429; s. 30, ch. 93-211; s. 24, ch. 2016-230.
IF NARCOTIC- Pharmacist MUST get oral RX and permission from doctor for 3 day supply.
(f) A prescription for a controlled substance listed in Schedule II may be dispensed only upon a written prescription of a practitioner, except that in an emergency situation, as defined by regulation of the Department of Health, such controlled substance may be dispensed upon oral prescription but is limited to a 72-hour supply. A prescription for a controlled substance listed in Schedule II may not be refilled.

A 28-year-old North Carolina man is facing a murder charge after allegedly stabbing his wife in bed — but the newlywed claims he doesn’t remember carrying out the alleged crime because he might have done it in his sleep, PEOPLE confirms.
Matthew Phelps, of Raleigh, called police distraught early Friday morning, declaring that his wife, Lauren, was dead on their bedroom floor covered in blood.
“I had a dream and then I turned on the lights and she’s dead on the floor,” he says in a 911 call obtained by PEOPLE. “I have blood all over me and there’s a bloody knife on the bed and I think I did it. I can’t believe this.”
What is really extra sad about this is that my article Sorcery and Spirituality https://www.drugawareness.org/articles/spirituality-and-sorcery came from an article a minister, Rev. George Malkmus, at Halleluah Acres, in NC asked me to write for his followers back in 2008. This is an article I ask all the time for everyone to take to their church leaders so that they will have this warning from the scriptures about this terrible plague of these deadly drugs that we were told would deceive the whole world in our day and would be the cause of death for many.
After we finished testimony at the FDA and learned of the Black Box Warning to be put into place Mark Taylor, his mother, Donna, and I drove down the East Coast to Florida for a case I had there very similar to this young aspiring pastor which had been the result of cold turkey withdrawal from Effexor. On our way we stopped in NC to film a piece with the 700 Club which you can see on the video about Mark and his case against Pharma and the retaliation they have taken against him for speaking out – which has only grown increasingly far worse since the film was put together in 2013: Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine:
We have been warning about cough medications and antidepressant use forever! The ingredient Dextromethorphan is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and will magnify the adverse effects of these drugs while on them or in withdrawal from them. I would suspect one would need to avoid them for many years after coming off. Kids call this ingredient Dex and they have been getting high on it for decades. It can produce a PCP effect, but as most of you should now know all of these antidepressants can do that as well. If you have not yet spent hours on our main website to learn all the cautions you need to take, I would suggest you commit yourselves to do that NOW! Something like this is certainly not worth taking a chance on! But learn from this article on this deadly sleep disorder that 86% of these cases involve someone who is currently on an antidepressant or making changes in the dose of an antidepressant. It has long been known as a drug withdrawal state. We do not yet know if this young man was on an antidepressant, but NC has long been known for having one of the highest rates of use nationwide. So chances of him being on one or having been on one in the past are high. If you look at this case out of Washington State you will see a REM Sleep Disorder explained by a young man who took a gun to school when he was 16 and held his classmates at gunpoint for 45 minutes and today, almost 20 years later still has no memory of it. He was being switched over from a year on Paxil to Effexor…

Neurontin and its newer more potent version, Lyrica, are widely used for off-label indications that are an outright flagrant danger to the public. These blockbuster drugs were approved for use even though the FDA had no idea what they actually did in the brain. A shocking new study shows that they block the formation of new brain synapses1, drastically reducing the potential for rejuvenating brain plasticity – meaning that these drugs will cause brain decline faster than any substance known to mankind.
The problem of these drugs is compounded by their flagrant illegal marketing. Neurontin was approved by the FDA for epilepsy back in 1994. The drug underwent massive illegal off-label promotion that cost Warner-Lambert 430 million dollars (the very first big fine for off-label promotion). The drug is now owned by Pfizer. Pfizer also owns Lyrica, a super-potent version of Neurontin. It has been approved by the FDA for various types of pain and fibromyalgia. Lyrica is one of four drugs which a subsidiary of Pfizer illegally marketed, resulting in a $2.3 billion settlement against Pfizer.
Even though the marketing of these drugs has been heavily fined, they continue to rack up billions in sales from the off-label uses. Doctors use them for all manner of nerve issues because they are good at suppressing symptoms. However, such uses can no longer be justified because the actual mechanism of the drugs is finally understood and they are creating a significant long-term reduction in nerve health.
The researchers in the above study try to downplay the serious nature of the drugs by saying “adult neurons don’t form many new synapses.” That is simply not true. The new science is showing that brain health during aging relies on the formation of new synapses. Even these researchers managed to question the common use of these medications in pregnant women. How is a fetus supposed to make new nerve cells when the mother is taking a drug that blocks them?
These are the kind of situations the FDA should be all over. As usual, the FDA is sitting around pondering a suicide warning for Lyrica while its off-label uses include bi-polar disorder and migraine headaches. The FDA is likely to twiddle its thumbs for the next decade on the brain damage issue. Consumer beware.

With the reports coming in of triple the legal limit of alcohol found in Henri Paul’s blood and the high rate of speed he was driving coupled with his family and friends saying he was not a drinker, yet he was being treated with another drug for alcohol withdrawal, this tragedy was beginning to scream Prozac to me. I had watched Diana’s life quite closely for years fearing that she would have a serious reaction to this drug that would endanger her life, but I had not considered that someone else’s use of the drug would be what could possibly take her life from her. But I immediately recognized the overwhelming cravings for alcohol I had witnessed non-stop with Prozac, then Zoloft, then Paxil – the reaction which first caught my attention to this whole group of drugs and caused me to continue on to write my book on them. After all I was living in Salt Lake City surrounded by Mormons who do not drink. Yet on these drugs they were becoming alcoholic almost over night and many of them were my good friends.
So with that experience I concluded the police needed to investigate this. I picked up the phone and called the police investigators in Paris to tell them they needed to test for Prozac and explained why I suspected they would find the drug. A week later in Paris the police publicly announced they had found therapeutic levels of Prozac in the blood of Henri Paul – a drug known to produce overwhelming cravings for alcohol and produce increased levels of alcohol in the blood. Ironically, or actually quite appropriately, on the same day at the University of Oslo in Norway my information on the overwhelming cravings for alcohol produced by the SSRI antidepressants was being presented.
Why would the police investigators listen to me where they may have dismissed just anyone else? The reason for that is because of a previous case I had worked with the lead police investigator there on another tragic Prozac case. The investigator had obtained a copy of my book and loved it! Now for those who have read my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare!, they will remember this case featured there that took place in France. That is the case of Kevin, from San Francisco, who was living in France with his German girlfriend.
Kevin’s mother reported to the FDA the following history of her son to show the total lack of depression in his life: “Kevin’s student years were happy years. He was a great source of joy to his parents. He had a thirst for life. His life is remembered as a series of vignettes – Kevin climbing the Great Wall of China; riding a camel to the Pyramids of Giza; watching with eager fascination the animals of the Serengetti; he skied during winter month vacations. He spent his summer months with his parents in a private hotel on the French Riviera. For Kevin it was like a summer home. Everyone remembers how popular he was with the staff; how disarming his irresistible love of life.”
“His curiosity and enthusiasm, the ease with which he made friends was always taking him off the beaten path. Once his parents took him with them to a Chamber of Commerce trip to the Soviet Union at a time when stringent security measures were still in force, Kevin went off on his own, met young people, enjoyed the amenities of Russian home life; all this to the amazement of nervous security people.” After graduating from Wharton he spent a year in Paris before he was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He was upbeat about his situation over the next two years…”he never gave up planning his future, nor was he wasteful of time. He worked on a book, composed music, read a lot, played piano. He spoke of his new life to come. He said he wanted to marry and have a large family. He promised his parents many grandchildren.”
“Kevin cherished his father. As an example of his love, he wrote in one of his letters to him, ‘Dad, you are a masterpiece of a father’. When his father died Kevin was a great comfort in pulling his mother through her sudden loss.”
“The summer of 1990 Kevin felt much better, enough so that he was able to join his parents at their summer home in France and spend several months there. He returned home for Christmas. It was during that visit he had an appointment with his doctor and was given Prozac for the occasional headaches which lingered from his CFS. He had no idea that he had been given a mind-altering drug, an antidepressant. He had a fear of sedatives and did not like taking chances of toxic reactions from drugs.”
Yet out of the blue that summer after being prescribed Prozac for those few lingering headaches Kevin had stabbed his girlfriend to death, then spent hours butchering himself. We know it took hours because Kevin recorded it all. Although left handed, he severed his right hand with a dull kitchen knife. Kevin finally died after he rammed a pencil through his eye.
The verdict out of France after an extensive investigation into this case was that this very violent murder and suicide was indeed caused by the American drug, Prozac.
The news around the world began reporting the Prozac connection to this tragic accident that had just robbed the world of a woman loved by so many.
“PARIS: The driver of the Mercedes Benz that crashed and killed Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed Saturday night was apparently drunk at the time of the high-speed accident, Paris prosecutors said today.Investigators said that Henri Paul, the Ritz Hotel’s number two security man, had a blood alcohol level of 1.7 grams per liter of blood more than three times the legal limit. Paul was not Fayed’s regular driver, who was instead used as a decoy for the paparazzi that were hounding the couple.
“Investigators said that Henri Paul, the Ritz Hotel’s number two security man, had a blood alcohol level of 1.7 grams per liter of blood more than three times the legal limit. Paul was not Fayed’s regular driver, who was instead used as a decoy for the paparazzi that were hounding the couple.
“Though he had received special security driving training from Mercedes-Benz, medical experts say that Paul could have been drunk enough to stagger and have blurred vision. At the moment of the crash, he had to contend with driving an unwieldy, armored Mercedes at speeds more than triple the posted 30 mph limit all the while being pursued by paparazzi on motor scooters. When the car entered the 660-ft. tunnel on the Place de l’Alma, investigators say, it struck the concrete divider that separates the eastbound lanes from the westbound and apparently cartwheeled, overturning, then spinning nearly 180 degrees. Fayed and Paul were killed instantly; the car’s horn wailed under the weight of the chauffeur’s body slumped against the steering wheel. A doctor was among the first at the scene and attempted to aid Diana, who was conscious though gravely injured, in the back seat. She died four hours later at the hospital.”
The following article states [paragraph 37, under Prozac]: According to Ronald J Diamond, M.D., of the University of Wisconsin Department of Psychiatry and Medical Director, Mental Health Center of Dane County, WI, “Antidepressant medications can trigger a manic episode in some susceptible people. In addition, some schizophrenic clients are reported to get more disorganized or more paranoid when taking antidepressants.”
SSRIs such as Prozac can cause a craving for alcohol. This is even listed in the insert for Paxil. Since the liver cannot metabolize the combination of both an SSRI & alcohol, there is a synergistic effect of raised levels of both alcohol and Prozac/SSRIs.
Many books have stated that Henri Paul was a light to moderate drinker and that he was a quiet, unassuming man. Seven months before the accident he began taking Prozac due to sadness over the end of a 10 year relationship with his girlfriend. The night of the crash, this quiet, introverted man was seen in front of the hotel waving and gesticulating to the crowd. He appeared to be in a hypomanic state. Antidepressants can cause mania and hypomania according to the medical literature. In the Physicians Desk Reference, it also states that Prozac can cause [as a frequent side effect] the adverse reaction of confusion.
Here is the article from Dr. Ronald J. Diamond:
With this news being released on Henri Paul’s use of Prozac the media picked it up and began to cover the issue as in the article below while Eli Lilly began stating that alcohol should not be used with their precious golden goose, Prozac. And it certainly would have had no impact upon this driver to produce such a tragic accident.
The statement said two drugs — fluoxetine and tiapride — were found in the blood of the driver, Henri Paul, 41. Fluoxetine, which was apparent in greater quantities, is the generic name of Prozac. Tiapride is often prescribed for the treatment of aggressiveness in alcoholics.
”Prudence in the use of these drugs is generally recommended for drivers of vehicles,” the office said.
The statement, based on further blood tests on Mr. Paul ordered late last week by the investigating judge in the case, Herve Stephan, appeared to add to the case of those arguing that it was the incapacity of the driver, rather than the pursuit by photographers, that was the central cause of the accident on Aug. 31.
Diana Speaks to BBC’s Panorama in 1995 about her very happy pre-Prozac marriage
In following the hundreds upon hundreds of images of Princess Di and Prince Charles taken by photographers from the beginning of their fairytale come true relationship it is very easy to see the love in their eyes for one another. That is clearly beyond question. The looks they gave one another, the way Charles doted on the children as much as Diana did. You could tell they loved one another and loved their children very much. Diana’s interview below supports that as well.
The following are excerpts from her 1995 Panorama interview: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special/politics97/diana/panorama.html
DIANA: At the age of 19, you always think you’re prepared for everything, and you think you have the knowledge of what’s coming ahead. But although I was daunted at the prospect at the time, I felt I had the support of my husband-to-be.
BASHIR: What were the expectations that you had for married life?
DIANA: I think like any marriage, especially when you’ve had divorced parents like myself, you’d want to try even harder to make it work and you don’t want to fall back into a pattern that you’ve seen happen in your own family.
DIANA: I desperately wanted it to work, I desperately loved my husband and I wanted to share everything together, and I thought that we were a very good team.
BASHIR: How aware were you of the significance of what had happened to you? After all, you’d become Princess of Wales, ultimately with a view to becoming Queen.
DIANA: I wasn’t daunted, and am not daunted by the responsibilities that that role creates. It was a challenge, it is a challenge.
As for becoming Queen, it’s, it was never at the forefront of my mind when I married my husband: it was a long way off that thought.
The most daunting aspect was the media attention, because my husband and I, we were told when we got engaged that the media would go quietly, and it didn’t; and then when we were married they said it would go quietly and it didn’t; and then it started to focus very much on me, and I seemed to be on the front of a newspaper every single day, which is an isolating experience, and the higher the media put you, place you, is the bigger the drop.
And I was very aware of that.
BASHIR: How did you handle the transition from being Lady Diana Spencer to the most photographed, the most talked-about, woman in the world?
DIANA: Well, it took a long time to understand why people were so interested in me, but I assumed it was because my husband had done a lot of wonderful work leading up to our marriage and our relationship.
Now before I hear any Charles bashing today I will warn you that I will defend him as yet another victim of Prozac via the destruction caused by this drug upon his marriage and the loss of his family. I basically met Charles vicariously years ago after spending six months living with my good friend, Doris, in Germany. On my return trip home I met an amazing young Austrian doctor who I came to know quite well. Peter was just leaving England where he had spent the week at the palace chumming with Charles as an honor for his amazing work in medicine and being named the top young doctor in Austria.
Peter spoke quite a bit about Charles as he had just barely left his company after spending a full week with him and gave me much insight into who Charles is and what he is like as a person. I highly value Peter’s opinion and insight. He is a very brilliant and very insightful man. And for Peter to be so taken back by Charles as a person and a very intelligent and very caring person, I knew he must be a very fine human being…perhaps an inside insight into the man behind the crown and behind the pomp and ceremony that not many get a chance to have. I understood for Peter to be so impressed by this person he must truly be an incredible human being as Peter is not much for honoring anyone for anything other than who they are – status meant nothing to Peter.
I fear that much of what the world heard from Princess Diana about Prince Charles as she was looking through her Prozac colored glasses was distorted and that this is something she now would really regret. Remember back in 1993 the study that came out explaining the finding that Prozac turns the brain cells into corkscrew shapes. So scientifically we know the perception literally becomes twisted which explains why so many mates say that their mates on these drugs have accused them of being the reason for everything bad that has ever happened to them in their lives. As dreams and reality become so scrambled by these drugs the patients also do not know what is a dream and what is reality. This leads to many false accusations, especially when mixed with the paranoia that comes from these drugs.
BASHIR: How did the rest of the Royal Family react when they learnt that the child that you were to have was going to be a boy?
DIANA: Well, everybody was thrilled to bits. It had been quite a difficult pregnancy – I hadn’t been very well throughout it – so by the time William arrived it was a great relief because it was all peaceful again, and I was well for a time.
Then I was unwell with post-natal depression, which no one ever discusses, post-natal depression, you have to read about it afterwards, and that in itself was a bit of a difficult time. You’d wake up in the morning feeling you didn’t want to get out of bed, you felt misunderstood, and just very, very low in yourself.
BASHIR: Was this completely out of character for you?
DIANA: Yes, very much so. I never had had a depression in my life. [Please note]
But then when I analysed it I could see that the changes I’d made in the last year had all caught up with me, and my body had said: `We want a rest.’
BASHIR: So what treatment did you actually receive?
DIANA: I received a great deal of treatment, but I knew in myself that actually what I needed was space and time to adapt to all the different roles that had come my way. I knew I could do it, but I needed people to be patient and give me the space to do it.
BASHIR: When you say all of the different roles that had come your way, what do you mean?
DIANA: Well, it was a very short space of time: in the space of a year my whole life had changed, turned upside down, and it had its wonderful moments, but it also had challenging moments. And I could see where the rough edges needed to be smoothed.
Diana wisely was very much opposed to medicine and prefered alternative treatment, but was persuaded to take Prozac and subsequently other antidepressants. Luckily over time she did add alternatives as well such as homeopathy and aromatherapy that proved to help her avoid many of the more extreme reactions to these drugs.
From the early 1990’s I have called the SSRI antidepressants the “Divorce Pills” because of how they interfere with a marriage in so many ways. As an example I use Utah once again as I watched the progression of these drugs there and their negative impact upon the people there. With most being Mormon then and Mormons being married for not just time alone, but for time and all eternity, they had long had the lowest divorce rate in the nation but within the first seven years of Prozac being on the market that divorce rate surpassed the national average!
The largest LDS (Mormon) dating group in town asked me to come and speak about the drugs because they had also noticed that those who would come into their group, find a mate and marry, would soon divorce and be back in once again finding another mate and marrying, then come back again! The referred to the group as the revolving door group.
Then there was the woman sitting next to me in a business meeting right after the first edition of my book had just been published. (6/94) With a copy of the book sitting on my lap the woman looked at it and said, “Oh Prozac. My fiance swears that caused his divorce.”
I turned to her and said, “Well he is right. It is so common that I call the drug the Divorce Pill.”
She then voiced concerns they both had over the ex-wife admitting to taking $10,000 from her boss’s purse. I told her that was a symptom of kleptomania that can be caused by the drugs and needed to be addressed before she has more serious reactions that could really get her in trouble.
She then said they were not so worried about her as they were his 18 year old daughter who the mother got on Prozac.
I said, “Oh no! Don’t tell me she is pregnant already! I cannot hear about yet another teen getting pregnant on this drug!”
She said, “No, but she has been married FOUR TIMES this past year and preparing to get married for the fifth time!”
Husbands and wives have continually reported they no longer know who their mates are any longer as the personality changes are so drastic – personality changes the drug maker now states in the package insert should be reported to the physician. Tragically physicians have generally ignored those reports coming in from family members and often refuse to even discuss their loved one with them!
But all these relationship issues are easily understood when we know the following about elevating serotonin levels – most of which is the direct opposite of what the marketing claims are…
#1 Elevated serotonin produces argumentative behavior
#2 Elevated serotonin produces depression – just what someone needs when they are already depressed!
#3 Elevated serotonin is found in panic and anxiety and unjustified fears
#4 Elevated serotonin is found in hypomania and mania which can include impulsivity, a happy drunk state, promiscuity and even delusions. Here I am explaining that to the FDA in the 2006 hearings on antidepressants in those under 25 (Diana was in that age group when first prescribed these drugs): https://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda
#5 Elevated serotonin is found in suicide, violent suicide, and repeated suicide attempts and once again I point out that when Diana was harming herself she fell into that age group.
#6 Elevated serotonin is found in psychosis, schizophrenia, hallucinations
#7 Not wanting to be touched
Dreams and reality become merged together as one becomes more and more toxic on these drugs making it very difficult to know what is real and what is not. Those suffering this reaction then begin to mix the two together thinking the nightmares they are having are in fact reality leading to many false accusations. In fact research was done on the Salem Witch Hunts which found that they were exposed to ergot poisoning.
Ergot is a fungus that grows on grain and it is the base for LSD. LSD produces its hallucinations by mimicking serotonin. So when the ergot is ingested the brain reads that as if it is increased serotonin levels and reacts accordingly thus producing hallucinations, delusions and even psychosis. So the same is happening as these Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibiting drugs gradually increase serotonin in the brain the patients begin dreaming things up because they cannot detect the dreams from reality. The distorted thinking brings on false accusations of abuse which certainly do not help build healthy relationships!
Princess Di began suffering many of the side effects of antidepressants not long after being prescribed the drugs. Most doctors do not even catch these changes in behavior as coming from the drugs themselves. A Yale study done in 2000 headed by Dr. Malcolm Bowers found that 11% of those in general hospitals suffering from mania induced by antidepressants – about one quarter of a million people! But they then raised concern that the actual figure would be far larger because the large majority of doctors do not recognize this as an iatrogenic effect (caused by the treatment) and do not label it as such, thereby causing serious problems for patients as they are continued on more and more medications to treat these symptoms which were caused by these drugs in the first place.
The following excerpts from an article, an interview with an author of a 1999 biography about Princess Di, points out many of the side effects Diana began suffering from the antidepressants she was being given and mistakenly refers to it all as a “mental illness” – Borderline Personality Disorder which was almost unheard of before these drugs hit the market.

ROBIN WILLIAMS Born: July 21,1951 Died: August 11, 2014
This weekend should not pass us by without addressing the anniversary of the passing of one of the greatest comedians of all time, Robin Williams. He died three years ago of Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD). He had at least 2 serotonergic drugs in his system when he killed himself.
One antidepressant found in Robin Williams toxicology test, Mirtazapine, Remeron, has 10 drug regulatory agency warnings citing suicidal ideation.
The mainstream media are reporting that Robin Williams had no drugs in his system when he died, but what they mean is no ‘illegal drugs’. He did have two serotonergic prescription medications in his system, these are legal drugs, and they can often be worse than street drugs as many users will attest to and which have long been known to produce LSD effects and even test positive for PCP. Sadly these (side) effects are not as well known by the public, nor their physicians. But we do know that the hallucinogenic effects of LSD and PCP are brought on by their mimicking of serotonin – the very chemical these serotonergic medications are designed to increase. As a result SSRI’s, SNRI’s, tricyclic antidepressants, MAI’s, atypical antipsychotics, or any other drug which increases serotonin levels can cause all sorts of problems, from inducing self harm, mania, akathisia, suicidal ideation, aggression, homicidal thoughts etc… Anyone on them long-term is asking for trouble…but even short term they can cause all sorts of nasty side effects as was demonstrated in the courtroom verdict finding only two doses of the antidepressant Paxil to be the main cause of the mass murder/suicide of the Donald Schell family in Wyoming in 2001. (Tobin vs Glaxo)
Thanks to Alex Steblowsky for sharing much of this information with links. https://truthman30.wordpress.com/2014/11/08/robin-williams-had-2-antidepressants-in-his-system-when-he-killed-himself-autopsy-reveals/
This weekend should not pass us by without addressing the anniversary of the passing of one of the greatest comedians of all time, Robin Williams. He died three years ago of Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD). This is a disorder I wrote about almost three decades ago in my book on about antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! as being the most deadly side effect, or abrupt withdrawal effect, of antidepressants . Here is our Facebook group by that name on this disorder where one acts out their worst nightmare in a sleep state:
Facebook Group: Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder
Although his wife amazingly was able to track down what it was that drove him to take his life – a REM Sleep Disorder, she attributed it to Lewy Bodies, not knowing how common RBD is to antidepressant use nor the fact that the overwhelming majority of RBD cases, 86%, are diagnosed in those taking an antidepressant.
But Robin was not on just one, but two of these drugs which produce this deadly sleep disorder known to cause the patient to hurt themselves or someone else in 80% of the cases (including both murder and suicide) as they act out these drug-induced nightmares.
Our Facebook groups for the antidepressant and atypical antipsycotic Robin was taking, which we firmly believe need to be pulled from the market….
Facebook Group: Remeron (Mirtazapine) Should Be Illegal
Facebook Group: Seroquel (Quetiapine) Should Be Illegal
The mainstream media are reporting that Robin Williams had no drugs in his system when he died, but what they mean is no ‘illegal drugs’.
So what was his prescription drug history? What all had he been given as he was treated for depression, Bipolar, etc. What doses were they? And how long was he on them? How rapidly was he taken off them? All these things can contribute to this final tragic outcome. I firmly believe Robin’s family deserve to know the truth about the dangers all the prescription drugs he had been given…
Some news sites are reporting the name of the atypical antipsychotics he was given as, Seroquel.
“When authorities found Robin’s body … they saw a closed bottle of Seroquel, a drug that treats schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and depression. It was prescribed a week before he died.
This news site is reporting, Seroquel (an atypical anti-psychotic and the antidepressant, mirtazapine (Remeron Zispin)
“In general, some antidepressants, especially SSRIs, can paradoxically exacerbate some peoples’ depression or anxiety or cause suicidal ideation. Despite its sedating action, mirtazapine is also believed to be capable of this, and for this reason in the United States and certain other countries it carries a black box label warning of these potential effects.”
Both classes of these types of drugs all carry Black Box warning labels for suicide.
There is an emerging controversy regarding quetiapine fatalities. The deaths of at least six U.S. military veterans who were given drug cocktails including quetiapine have been attributed to its inclusion by military doctors to treat PTSD.
Approximately 10,000 lawsuits against AstraZeneca for problems ranging from slurred speech and chronic insomnia to death have been filed by individuals from civilian populations.
Some have argued that additional somatic and psychiatric symptoms associated with dopaminergic super-sensitivity, including dyskinesia and acute psychosis, are common features of withdrawal in individuals treated with neuroleptics. This has led some to suggest that the withdrawal process might itself be psychosis-mimetic, producing psychotic-like symptoms even in previously healthy patients, indicating a possible pharmacological origin of mental illness in a yet unknown percentage of patients currently and previously treated with antipsychotics.

The first thing is that Robin was sober at the time of his death. The report stated that he only had four drugs in his system, two were anti-depressants and two were “caffeine compounds.”
However, the report also brought to light the fact that Robin was suffering from paranoia [yet another side effect of these serotonergic medications] and apparently he …
“placed several wrist watches in a sock and gave them to someone because he was worried about their safe keeping.”
Ben Stein: Anti-depressants Gave Me Suicidal Thoughts
Monday, August 25, 2014
Tonight’s Emmy Awards will feature a tribute to iconic comedian and actor Robin Williams, who recently committed suicide after a lifelong battle with depression.
Like Williams, actor Ben Stein told CBN News he also struggled with depression and thoughts of suicide.
It’s unclear whether Williams took anti-depressants. But Stein said those drugs played a dangerous role in his personal battle with depression. He said the closest he came to actually taking his own life were the times he was taking anti-depressants.
“The absolute worst I’ve ever felt in my entire life was under the influence of two drugs called Thorazine and Mellaril,” he said. “That was a long, long time ago, when they were supposed to make you feel better and yet, suicidal thoughts – they had the exact opposite effect and I really came close to death,” Stein told CBN Health and Science reporter Lorie Johnson.
“And then within the last several years, a drug called Wellbutrin, which is a well-known anti-depressant was prescribed to me and it actually worked quite well for about two weeks. And then I felt an overwhelming compulsion to commit suicide and I stopped taking it and it went away,” Stein said.
Stein said he has kept his depression and thoughts of suicide at bay through prayer, rest, and fresh air, and getting in a 12-step program.
“Unless there’s some gigantic breakthrough I’m unaware of, I would never think of touching anti-depressants again. That being said, if they work for other people, God bless ’em,” Stein said
