Our Real Pandemic: 40% Increase in RX/Serotonin Drug Use & the Aftermath

INTERNATIONAL COALITION FOR DRUG AWARENESS

I am concerned that even though you are on our mailing list or in one of our Facebook groups many of you have little idea who we are,  or fully understand what we do, or how badly we need your help to stop this true pandemic of dangerous prescription drugs that now seems to be invading nearly every family in this country & many more around the world. We have been fighting this battle for truth as the first international group established warning specifically about serotonergic medications like antidepressants, the newer atypical anti-psychotics, diet pills, various pain medications, stop smoking meds, etc.  as well as many other prescription & even over the counter medications.

So I am sending this to you today to share our mission statement with info which I am sure you will find shocking as you learn just how far reaching the negative impact of these drugs really is  & the politics behind them.  As this issue spreads with so many more now consuming their products  – there has been a 40% increase in the use of these drugs known to produce not only impulsive, out of character  violence & suicide, arson, theft or embezzlement, child abuse but so much more! The following information is critical to have. You need to learn how to protect your loved ones just as I had to do this past week when my own 14 year old grandson faced a potentially fatal situation while with me & also lost a classmate to suicide while the school pushes to medicate the rest of his class as a preventative & many of my close friends have reported suicides of loved ones & one is facing total family embarrassment after an elderly cousin, whose sons hold key positions in the local area, completely out of character shocked the whole family & community as they learned he had embezzled almost a million dollars & it gets even worse from there – all just this past week & all related to the widespread use of these drugs by multiple individuals.

In fact if you have heard my interviews over the past 30 years you have heard me voice concerns over abrupt changes in dose of these drugs yet we are facing that with Zoloft for patients now. According to the FDA’s website, sertraline/Zoloft shortages on some brands and formulations are expected to last up to 60 days. If you’re concerned about the availability of your prescription, call your pharmacist to discuss your concerns, and don’t stop or change your medication because doing so will throw you into cold turkey withdrawal which the FDA has warned can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. Please go to our website and look up drugawareness.org/alternatives and look at Noni juice (cheapest price on that is found at WalMart online) and the CES device recommended there or the CBD oil Charlotte’s Web and other alternatives to help get you through a cold turkey withdrawal.

Keep in mind as you read through this that to date the worldwide death toll from Covid – 19, which the world has treated as a “Pandemic,” has been 400,000 worldwide while in America alone at least 200,000 have died every year in America alone from properly prescribed prescription drugs since 1994! And that is not counting all Iatrogenic (doctor caused) deaths which I understand now is approaching almost one million deaths per year in America alone. In looking at those figures it is quite clear which is the real pandemic facing our world.
The ICFDA MISSION STATEMENT for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness was established in 1995 by Ann Blake-Tracy, PHD, author of the first books on antidepressant adverse effects The Prozac Pandora (1991) & Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! (1994) as Executive Director, Bio available here:  drugawareness.org/mission/board/
And the ICFDA  was established on the web at DrugAwareness.org in 1997 by Mark Miller, who lost his beautiful son Matt at only age 13, to a Zoloft-induced REM Sleep Disorder which resulted in his suicide, after only one week on the drug. And it happened in the middle of the night in spite of him being excited when he went to bed because he was looking forward to leaving on a highly anticipated vacation the following morning.
OUR MISSION
ICFDA is a private, non-profit group of physicians & other medical professionals, first responders, concerned citizens, researchers, journalists, patients, etc.
Our primary focus is to address the world’s most pervasive and subtle drug problem—prescription drugs. We are dedicated to educating the people of the world regarding the potentially harmful & life threatening short term & long term effects of these drugs we call “medications” along with the serious problems associated with the unethical marketing techniques of pharmaceutical companies & the off-label prescribing of these drugs by many physicians. As the cause of an estimated 200,000 plus deaths per year in America, prescription drug reactions are the third leading cause of death!The most dangerous period of time for a drug to be on the market is upon market introduction. At that point, physicians and their patients have available to them only the information on adverse reactions present in the controlled environment of a clinical trial. But they remain unaware of the potential adverse reactions of these new drugs when dispensed to the general public.

We, therefore, feel there is a need to track and report patient reactions more carefully and more rapidly than what is presently being done, which should result in lower medical costs for the patients and doctors as well. And this also should begin to bridge the gap between well-meaning doctors and maltreated patients.By keeping prescribing physicians and their patients abreast of recent adverse reaction reports and approved uses of drugs as opposed to their off-label uses, we hope to cut the number of unnecessary deaths due to drug reactions and interactions and lessen the number of malpractice suits filed against physicians as a result of those reactions. Beyond this public education process, our intention as the IC (“I see”) FDA is to serve as a watchdog group over the FDA and similar organizations around the world, encouraging them to remove drugs which demonstrate high numbers of dangerous adverse reactions and threaten public safety.

Every year approximately hundreds of thousands die from prescription drug reactions. According to a 1995 study done by pharmacists concerned about the lives the drugs they are dispensing are taking each year they found that number then to be 200,000. These numbers are generally extremely difficult to gather & are continuously denied by Pharma so a study conducted by pharmacists is a very strong statement.
Yet hundreds of thousands more die from medical malpractice.And while at that time there were only 41,000 dying in auto accidents.

[DRUG TOPICS, October 23, 1995, pg. 14-16.]

Critical to point out from this 1995 study above done by pharmacists in an attempt to curb the high number of prescription drug deaths they found that every year approximately 200,000 die from prescription drug reactions when taking medications “AS PRESCRIBED, NOT ABUSED”. That is as many deaths every week as we suffered in this country on 9/11! So America went to war for over almost two decades now for an attack that killed as many as we see die from medications every week?!!

Where is that kind of outcry for these deaths?! (And if the rate was that high 2 1/2 decades ago, just how much of an increase has there been since then?!!!)And that is only from prescription drugs, not including the hundreds of thousands more who die from medical malpractice.

What is wrong with our focus on the “drug war” when 200,000 die each year from prescription drugs, especially when the large majority of illegal drugs are just old prescription drugs removed from the market after society woke up & banned them after deadly trial & error?

Billions of dollars go into illegal drug issues in this country every year even though far more are dying from legal drugs. Everyone is asking, “Where is the FDA?” They are busy approving another new drug. And how many more will die from that one?

A two-year Los Angeles Times investigation published in December 2000 found that the seven medications approved since 1993 have been withdrawn after reports of deaths and severe side effects. In the article written by Times Staff Writer David Willam, it states, “The FDA approved each of those drugs while disregarding danger signs or blunt warnings from its own specialists. Then, after receiving reports of significant harm to patients, the agency was slow to seek withdrawals.” Nothing has changed!

MORTON MINTZ  & THE THERAPEUTIC NIGHTMARE

Morton Mintz, a former Washington Post reporter, and a Nieman Fellow who won the Raymond Clapper award for reporting the thalidomide tragedy published a book in 1965 entitled, THE THERAPEUTIC NIGHTMARE. See how drug companies then used the same tactics to get their drugs out to the public then as we see them doing now… https://youtu.be/6uizvsiaHyw

His warnings about Thalidomide kept the drug off the market in the US thereby preventing this outcome for many babies in America. His warnings if heeded fully then, and the warnings coming from many other men of great integrity since then, could have spared us the agony we have experienced from medication tragedies since that time as well as those we are literally engulfed in today. He begins his book with, “Here we shall see that there have been instances when our excessive trust in certain Corporate Consciences has been rewarded with inadequately and even fraudulently tested drugs, with useless drugs and inferior versions of good drugs, with protraction of illness, and with waste of our money. In order that sales may begin and continue, regardless of whether we are healed and spared pain, evidence of serious and even lethal effects has been withheld from the responsible government agency and concealed from the medical profession and the public.” (p.xiv)

We wish to honor him here (and those who have followed in his footsteps) in their unending efforts to warn us of the serious problems associated with these so called “medications” we have come to blindly trust.

This site is to assist us in making sure that trust is no longer a “blind” trust. We must take the responsibility to educate ourselves about what we are putting into our bodies and brains.Some of the most popular drugs on the market today are those that increase serotonin levels like the diet pills that were pulled from the market in 1997. Originally Fen-Phen & Redux were thought to be so safe that 18 million people took the drugs. Now we know that they were so deadly that those who took even one pill were advised to have their hearts checked. If these drugs could be among the most popular on the market and touted as “the thing” for weight management for a two-year period, yet leave a backlash of victims that attorney’s offices could not even begin to handle in spite of most patients never learning the worst of the damage the drugs had caused, what other mistakes in medicine will we wake up to tomorrow?

Look at the over 50 thousand who died of heart attacks on Vioxx which even surpassed the diet pill deaths while Viagra (still on the market!) has been found to produce five times that number of heart attacks!

And then there is the latest craze we hear on our TVs, radios, etc. with ads about “Low T” encouraging men to come in & get tested to see if they need to take testosterone – the same drug ordered by Hitler to turn his troops into lean, mean killing machines & whose developer deeply regretted for the rest of his life the part he played in introducing that drug into our world.What are you taking right now that could be just as dangerous or as damaging as these drugs now off the market – LSD, PCP, Heroin, Cocaine (still legal). amphetamines (still legal),  Ecstasy. etc.?

What do you know about the medication you are currently taking?

What do you know about the dangers of taking the drugs you are taking when they have been prescribed in combination yet never been safety tested in combination with one another?

Even more frightening to ask is “What does your doctor know or not know about the answers to these questions?”

Drugs like Chantix, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Stratera, Effexor, Remeron, Pristiq, Anafranil, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Brisdelle, etc. are some of the biggest money makers ever for the pharmaceutical companies.

UNKNOWN RISKS OF MEDICATING CHILDREN
Yet are you aware that the use of Prozac among children from ages 6-12 went from 41,000 in 1995 to 203,000 in 1996. The number of new prescriptions written increased almost 400% in just one year?!! This is a very powerful mind-altering drug that has not been approved for use in children and even though our children are popping it like candy! Just Prozac’s effect upon cortisol levels alone should frighten parents to death. One 30mg dose has been shown to clearly double the level of cortisol! (PROZAC PANACEA OR PANDORA? – Our Serotonin Nightmare!, p. 168)
Increased cortisol impairs the development and regeneration of the liver, kidneys, and muscles. It also retards linear growth. How many parents are given that information? How many doctors are aware of it themselves? I have found none in three decades because that research was done in Italy by the drug maker so they did not have to make that information available to physicians in the US.

Add to that the fact that the study being used to gain FDA approval of this medication demonstrates that the rate of mania among children taking Prozac was three times higher than it is for adults. Three out of 100 had to drop out of the study due to this devastating complication which developed within a short eight-week trial!

Mania is a terrible form of insanity which includes symptoms of sexual compulsions, criminal behavior, alcohol cravings, rages leading to violence, especially domestic violence, arson, theft, gambling, delusions of grandeur (often mistaken as increased self-confidence), wild spending and varied types of criminal behavior, etc., etc., etc. to list only a few of about 100 types of manic nightmares you could imagine. The most logical question to ask is “Why would we take a chance of any of these outcomes in our children when there are so many safe natural options that work as well & often better, & without these extremely serious side effects?”

“Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Destroys Big Pharma, Dr. Fauci & Vaccine Science”

After working as an expert witness in court cases involving antidepressants since 1992 I will tell you that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is clearly one of the finest attorneys the world has ever seen & I have had the opportunity to work with some of the very finest in this country and other countries. He has an excellent understanding of the science he is talking about with these drugs & knows how to argue the point very well as he presents the evidence.

This is a long and quite thorough interview but I encourage you to at least listen to the first half hour of the interview to see what he discloses about how Pharma controls so much of our lives and our health. He is discussing Pharma and the way they do business and how they buy their way to get what they want.

And in the end of this interview Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. also discusses the assassinations of his father, Robert F. Kennedy, and his uncle, President John F. Kennedy and his own investigations into what really happened in both deaths. These atrocities tie into WHO gave us the antidepressants and why.

That information you can find as you read through past posts on our website (www.drugawareness.org) titled “Where Did Your Medication Come From?,” plus any other post on George H.W. Bush, past head of the CIA who was intricately involved in Operation Paperclip – the CIA operation where 1600 Nazi scientists were brought to America after WWII, past head of Eli Lilly who put the first SSRI antidepressant on the market thereby paving the way for all of its many clones (Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Cymbalta, etc., etc., etc.), and also the person who changed the FDA’s approval regulations to squeeze the SSRI antidepressants through the FDA approval process and on the market with greatly reduced scrutiny.

If you are not yet aware of the bribe that got these drugs on the market to begin with you need to listen to this interview:

Meet Dr. John Virapen the man who bought Prozac’s approval. “I indirectly contributed to the death of people, whose shadows now haunt me.”

Meet Dr. John Virapen – The Man Who BOUGHT Prozac’s Approval

And Robert F. Kennedy, Jr’s younger brother, Douglas, understands more than most reporters about these deadly antidepressant drugs and we owe him much because he has done more media to expose the dangers of these drugs than any other reporter in America for which we should all be extremely grateful. I will include some of his news coverage below the link to his brother’s interview.

Bombshell Evidence On Covid 19 By Dr. Rashid Buttar

This bombshell on the Covid 19 vaccine is only about 5 mins long but was posted for only 24 hours! It has about everything you need to know as it is jam packed with most damning documented info I have seen on this yet – info that could certainly fry those involved in this in a courtroom!!!! And one of the companies involved is GSK (Glaxo Smith Kline) the company who makes the SSRI antidepressant Paxil. The same company we were able to take to court in Wyoming to get a $6.4 Million judgement in a wrongful death case verdict against them in a mass murder suicide of four back in 2001. (Tobin vs Glaxo) And that was from a terrible tragedy that was found to have come from a loving, mild mannered husband and father and grandfather who took only two pills before killing his family and himself!
 
Anyone who has taken one of these serotonergic medications (mainly antidepressants) knows full well they were lied to about the extreme dangers of these drugs and the damage they can cause. And anyone who knows how these drugs work know that these companies put these drugs out knowing that their mechanisms of action – inhibiting the reuptake (metabolism) of serotonin so that neurotransmitter will build up in the brain, produces hallucinations/psychosis, violence, represses REM Sleep, etc. All of those will lead over time to the prescribing of anti-psychotic medications so that the next behavior altering medications the companies introduced were the new supposedly “improved” atypical anti-psychotics to treat the psychosis produced by the antidepressant. Of course those drugs cost about double what the antidepressant who caused the psychosis cost! And the antidepressants also cause diabetes while Eli Lilly who had the approval of the first SSRI, Prozac, bribed, just happened to be the largest manufacturer of insulin.
 
And if you think any of that was coincidental you would have to have been born yesterday! This is how Pharma does business and how they bring in more business just as they also have once again brought in more business with the mass  prescribing of antidepressants since this whole pandemic over the Covid 19 began!!!!

Covid 19 Drug: Is Your Medication One of 332 With Interactions To Hydroxychloroquine?

Hydroxychloroquine Drug Interactions & Side Effects
Everyone’s first concern in this pandemic should not have been over the virus itself but concern over any medication offered for the virus or interactions between that medication and any current medications they are personally taking. And why is that? It is because data shows that the chance of dying from the medication is far greater than the chance of any virus killing you. But I will bet that anyone strapping a mask on did not even bother to look up side effects or interactions between this drug and any other medication they are currently on.
 
What am I talking about? I am talking about the following fact…

Fact: Leading Causes of Death in America

  • Heart disease: 647,457
  • Cancer: 599,108
  • Prescription Drugs 200,000 to 350,000 to ???

 America’s THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH according to a study done clear back in 1995 by pharmacists concerned over how many deaths were resulting from the drugs they were dispensing to consumers found 200,000 deaths annually, [DRUG TOPICS, October 23, 1995, pg 14-16]. This was deaths from prescription medications, taken as prescribed by their physicians and NOT abused. I have heard the latest figures are close to 350,000 annually! And those death figures do not take into account the…

… medication-induced suicides, murder/suicides, mass killings (documented here: SSRIstories.NET)
 
…or the medication-induced heart failures even though we know at least 50,000 died of Vioxx-induced heart attacks (and it is known that Viagra is producing five times the number of heart attacks Vioxx caused!)
 
…or the medication-induced cancers even though we know the polio vaccine alone exposed 98 million to both the cancer virus and AIDS. (drugawareness.org/vaccine-pioneer-doctor-admits-polio-vaccine-caused-cancer/ )
 
…And attorneys are now lining up cancer lawsuits for Zantac-induced cancer cases!
 
…All of those fatal cases leaving the diet pill disaster of Fen-Phen and Redux in the dust as the largest in wrongful death suits we knew of before.
 
So who knows how high the annual death toll must be at this point with medical journals as prestigious as the British Medical Journal calling last Fall for Pharma to bow out of medical treatment because their drugs are causing too much harm and because Pharma is lying to patients about their drugs?! [Drugawareness.org/big-pharma-not-trusted/]
 
So while America is currently having major panic attacks over this pandemic that is appearing to be a huge hoax anyway when you compare the annual flu deaths to Covid 19 deaths, who is asking questions about Hydroxychloroquine?
 
The first drug of choice for Covid 19 is Hydroxychloroquine, a sister drugt to the anti-malaria drug Larium (mefloquine). This is a drug that works so similarly to the antidepressant Prozac that in court it was considered the reason for Sgt. Robert Bales mass murder spree in Afganistan where 16 innocent victims lost their lives in the middle of the night attack and Sgt. Bales had no memory of doing it. Of course he was also taking an antidepressant on top of that drug.
 
Sgt. Bales filed an appeal of his case last summer based upon Larium’s “long-lasting adverse psychiatric effects, including symptoms of psychosis and tendencies to engage in violence…the atrocity was one of the worst in the war, triggering demonstrations against the US presence in Afghanistan” [https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2019/06/26/soldier-convicted-of-massacring-16-afghans-seeks-new-civilian-trial-citing-a-psychosis-inducing-anti-malarial-drug/] Knowing all this I expected there would likely be issues  between this Covid 19 treatment and any antidepressant along with the anti-psychotics as well. I will let you search through this long list of those drugs which produce the most deadly interactions, including death, to find the long list of antidepressants, anti-psychotics, popular antibiotics, and even the most widely used over the counter laxatives!!!!
   
PLEASE share this information widely as a warning to many who use these medications yet have no idea that if they contract Covid 19, using hydroxychloroquine in conjunction with one of more of these drugs could be, not just serious, but even fatal. For instance the long QT syndrome produced as a side effect of hydroxychloroquine is also a side effect of Seroquel an antipsychotic often prescribed for just sleep! Mixing the two could potentially produce heart failure as that side effect would be magnified.
 
As I quickly went through a list of close friends and family who are on one or more of these drugs which interact with Hydroxychloroquine, I found several on at least one, but many more on multiple drugs which would produce these serious reactions. What would I tell them? Exactly what I have already told them – to make sure they are taking high doses of Vitamin C (I use 12,000 units daily but working up to a high amount is a good idea) & using Sovereign Silver, Garlic, Oregano, Ginger, or any other natural antibiotics, as well as eating lots of good raw organic fruits and veggies to build their immunity and prevent the flu. That is how I have avoided the flu or even a temperature for 45 years.
 
Here is the list of drugs which interact along with a MUST READ list of side effects to Hydroxychloroquine itself.

An Absolute Classic Antidepressant Case:

There are just FAR TOO MANY of these cases to find the time to share them all with you. It is all I can do to save the cases until there is enough help to get them all posted in our database of cases at www.SSRIstories.NET. But as I can find the time to post them here or on our Facebook groups I will.
Baby Armani’s story is absolutely classic and the same scenario I have heard repeated daily for 30 years! If you can find a way to pull up the September, 1997 show I did with Geraldo called “Diet Pill Disaster” all about the diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux, which were pulled from the market that month, and their chemical cousins, the SSRI antidepressants, you will find a very similar story out of a small town in Kansas.
I got a call from my close friend, Doris, from Germany, who married an American and moved to Kansas. She had just finished reading my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?,  I had sent her a copy of. Her first words were, “We have just had one of your cases here in my small hometown. One of the nicest guys in town has just attacked his family and killed himself.”
His wife describes her husband on Zoloft only 5 days, who while watching television with her, suddenly swung his hand across her waist as his head went back and his eyes rolled back in his head. Thinking he had fallen asleep during the show and was lashing out in his sleep as he had been doing since starting the drug, she attempted to wake him. Then she realized she was bleeding and he had just stabbed her!
She immediately ran upstairs to protect their children who were both in their own rooms. He followed her up the stairs and stabbed both of their children. But his wife had jumped out the son’s two story bedroom window so she could throw a large rock through their front window to draw her husband outside away from the children. It worked. But after chasing her in the pitch black darkness he stopped and went back in the house and shot himself.
She and the children survived their wounds, but the first thing they were offered in the hospital after emergency care was Prozac. They adamantly refused and I will let you guess what the wife told them they could do with that Prozac!
Baby Armani & His Family’s Nightmare
Now back to baby Armani and his family’s nightmare in San Antonio early this month. These drugs must be very popular among the doctors in San Antonio because they have so many terrible cases like this there. Sutherland Springs, where the mass church shooting left 27 dead in the worst mass Church shooting ever, is only half and hour away. I will let you go to our database of cases to look up the rest of the cases there we have been able to get posted.
Her boyfriend was stressed at work Friday after working 6 days a week and called to have her pick him up early. At 2 that morning things were still ‘off’ with Lance Tello…
“In Tello’s bedroom later that night, the mom made a plea for her boyfriend to let her know what was going on.

“And I’m talking to him and telling him, ‘I’m sorry you’re feeling like this, but can you just talk to me?'” But he refused.

Delacruz said that Tello stood up and looked at himself in the mirror before reaching under the mattress and pulling out a gun.

“He has no emotion in his face,” she recalled about that terrifying moment. “He’s just looking at me with this evil look.”

Tello turned from the mirror, cocked his gun, and pointed it at her.

“You’re not going to shoot my baby,” she told him. But before she could push him away, the gun went off…

“Then I turn around and I see my son,” she continued. “My son is on the floor and he’s turning blue.”

Both of these cases are classic antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder  (RBD) cases which I discuss extensively in my book on these drugs. It was not until a 2003 New York Times article that I learned of Dr. Carlos Schenck’s work in documenting the link we had discussed in 1992 between the SSRI antidepressants and RBD which I was seeing so often in these cases.  I learned in the article that Dr.  Schenck  had gone back through his records and found that about 45% of the patients his sleep disorder clinic had diagnosed with RBD were on antidepressants.

Those results were high enough that he felt they should investigate that link further and launched a study to address the link directly. What they found in the study  was an astounding 86% of the patients diagnosed with this most deadly of sleep disorders where you act out nightmares in a sleep state were taking antidepressants (80% on SSRIs & 6% on the tricyclic antidepressants)!

This should not only be a Black Box Warning on these drugs but should also be headline news worldwide! And yet it has now been over a quarter of a century since I first sounded the warning in my book about this most deadly side effect and testified to the FDA about it in 2004. All while we still wait for any warning to patients or an unsuspecting public who could be put in danger at any time like these two families have been!

And we still wait for research to be done on how often this is found in abrupt or rapid withdrawal from these drugs since it has LONG been known as an a drug withdrawal state! If Dr. Schenck found 86% of the cases involve those taking an antidepressant, just how high can it be expected in withdrawal from these drugs? The question the whole world deserves an answer to!!!

Remembering Columbine & the Forgotten Survivors – 21st Anniversary

Although Mark Taylor was dubbed the Columbine Wonder Boy by the media when Columbine happened because he survived being shot 6 – 13 times by Eric Harris & spent all he had in a lawsuit against the drug maker of the antidepressant Eric was on that caused Columbine hoping to put and end to the school shootings, he has remained in a facility being drugged for a decade with the very drugs he was blowing the whistle on. All because of an ANONYMOUS call to report that he had made a threat to blow up a book store. Visions of Nazi Germany?

Richard Castaldo, who appeared in Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine with Mark & was parallelized in the shooting while eating lunch with Rachel Scott, is now homeless & in a nursing facility recovering from MRSA. Both boys still carry bullets lodged in their bodies from that day…see all the evidence in videos below that Columbine & the majority of school shootings since were caused by the adverse effects of antidepressants… https://www.9news.com/article/news/local/next/columbine-shooting-richard-castaldo-homeless-colorado/73-a7a6f52b-8a96-4dcb-a320-e9c870b3ff02

All the while people wonder why 21 years later these shootings continue. All of the videos & information below will explain that the reason they continue is the media has refused to carry the real story about how & why Columbine actually happened & why they have worked so hard to keep Mark Taylor quiet after he got so much attention telling the FDA that the Pharmaceutical giants need to be considered “terrorists” & while antidepressants need to be considered “accomplices to murder.”

Antidepressant to Treat Covid19? – America’s “Brilliant” (NOT!) Scientific Minds Decide to Revisit Columbine!!!

Study to evaluate antidepressant as potential COVID-19 treatment – the same antidepressant that triggered Columbine!

Drug fluvoxamine may help prevent life-threatening ‘cytokine storm’

The following article really is NOT an article from the Onion, the publication that puts on seemingly ridiculous articles that appear to be real news. Sadly, this one is real! Hopefully St. Louis is in complete lockdown and stay far away from anyone diagnosed with Covid19 who may be part of this study!

Ironically just yesterday I spoke with a prison chaplain in Utah who called to tell me that for years he had wondered why a particular prisoner he had come to really respect was even in prison, much less serving such a long term. He finally decided to ask the prisoner.  He was shocked to learn that as a youth this person was part of a research study on an antidepressant in Provo, Utah and as a result killed two people!

Study to evaluate antidepressant as potential COVID-19 treatment

Please note that at the end of this article is a phone number and email address to contact this research team. I encourage all of you to call or email your response. Here is my letter in reply:

I have served as the expert for Columbine survivor Mark Taylor in his lawsuit against Solvay Pharmaceutical’s Luvox from early on in that mass killing when Eric Harris shot Mark 6 -13 times and 12 of his classmates and a teacher were killed. Here Mark is letting the FDA know what he thinks of their lack of oversight at the 2004 FDA hearing on antidepressant safety: https://www.drugawareness.org/mark-taylors-testimony-before-the-fda-9132004/

There is no doubt in my mind that I speak for Mark as well when I ask, “Are you completely out of your minds?!!!!!!!!” What on earth makes you think that giving someone a drug that works like a slow fuse LSD or PCP – a psychedelic drug, is going to get rid of a virus?!!!!” Of course I do understand that most ideas like that are born from the green stuff that flows rapidly and furiously from the Pharma accounts straight to yours that would be what generates such insane ideas! But I ask, “Is all  that blood money worth it?” Look at the price we have already paid, besides Columbine…Here is just a small sampling of the effect of increasing serotonin in a population so that you know beforehand exactly what the end results of your so called “study” will bring you: www.SSRIstories.net.

And since I have been testifying as an expert in these antidepressant-induced criminal cases since 1992 I have no doubt whatsoever that I will be seeing you in a courtroom soon!!! Just the Prozac-induced murder case of Alyssa Bustamante, 15, who killed her 9 year old neighbor girl right in your backyard should have woken you up years ago https://youtu.be/13_797rv3qI

Serotonin is the key to human violence which you would know if you had read the research on serotonin before so much of it was falsified to sell these deadly drugs. https://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

Suicidal Florida Father Kills Two Children & Self in House Fire

Kaeden, Kailani
              Kaeden Vasquez, 13                                    Kailani Vasquez 10
 
 
Antidepressants?! Stop Smoking Meds?! Sleeping Meds?! Tamiflu?! & even Miralax sold over the counter for constipation?! have all been reported to produce such deadly reactions…
 
This Florida father sent a suicidal note then…According to a GoFundMe campaign set up to help pay for funeral expenses, the children’s father “was not in his right state of mind and took their life and his. We are still in shock and unable to comprehend why this happened.”
 
Most patients who become suicidal on these drugs remain completely unaware that when they attempt to overdose using the medication they could suffer psychiatric reactions of suicidality, hostility or psychosis where they can hurt those who mean the most to them BEFORE they drop dead from the physically toxic effects of the medication which they thought would just cause them to drop dead. They are also not aware that their serotonergic medication could cause them to go into the REM Sleep Disorder where they will act out nightmares in a sleepwalk state which has long been known to produce both murder & suicide.

PLEASE GO TO OUR MAIN WEBSITE AT www.drugawareness.org TO BECOME BETTER INFORMED ABOUT THESE DRUGS & THEIR DEADLY POTENTIAL REACTIONS IN ORDER TO KNOW HOW TO AVOID THEM. MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL IS TO NEVER EVER ABRUPTLY CHANGE YOUR DOSE!!!

TO SEE THE LONG LIST OF DEADLY POTENTIAL REACTIONS SEE OUR DATABASE OF 1000’s OF PREVIOUSLY DOCUMENTED CASES HERE: www.SSRIstories.net
