According to a CNN report, medical examiners concluded that “sleep apnea and other undetermined factors” contributed to her death.” They also reported multiple drugs, legal as well as illegal: methadone, heroin, cocaine, Ecstasy,and others they do not mention including her favorite Prozac. If everyone will recall her ashes were placed into a large Prozac pill – her favorite possession. With this information from the coroner on her cause of death there could have been nothing more appropriate to place her ashes in than an pill of the drug that was one of the most responsible for her death in my opinion. Read on to see why I say that and why I believe the day is coming that the world will see that the drugs she spent so much of her life promoting were the same drugs that have caused a skyrocketing of the Bipolar Disorder she suffered and the drug that added more to her death than any other as it gradually increased her serotonin levels to deadly heights
CARRIE FISHER LAID TO REST IN GIANT PROZAC PILL
Prozac and its clones, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, etc are notorious for causing sleep apnea. In fact sleep apnea is such a common adverse reaction if I had any money years ago I would have put it into CPAP stock since most everyone on antidepressants longer term ended up on a CPAP machine!!!
So what might those “other undetermined factors” have been? After working so many death cases involving these deadly serotonergic drugs I would point out that the most obvious of all would be Serotonin Syndrome.
This is the same thing that killed Anna NIcole Smith’s young son Daniel as he sat in a hospital room visiting his mother and his new baby sister right after her birth.
Serotonin Syndrome is a potentially fatal toxic condition in which serotonin levels become much too high and shut down the major organs of the body. The cause of death with Serotonin Syndrome is multiple organ failure. Far too many doctors are focused on increasing serotonin and remain oblivious to the fact that serotonin levels can become elevated enough to become fatal. This is generally triggered by using two or more different drugs known to increase serotonin. If I recall correctly Daniel was on four serotonergic medications including methadone. Every one of the drugs mentioned found in Carrie’s toxicology is serotonergic, not to mention all her years of using antidepressants which over the years must have driven her serotonin levels through the roof. Always remember that rapid or abrupt withdrawal is also known to trigger Serotonin Syndrome.
And for those readers who are not aware cocaine was used in the past as an antidepressant before it was realized that the stimulant effect was causing depression after the initial high as any stimulant does. And Ecstasy was being prescribed for depression by psychiatrists until it was removed from the market just five years before Prozac was approved. Everyone should most definitely learn the history behind all these drugs to see how we got to where we are now in this Serotonin Nightmare.
UNDERSTANDING HOW THE PROZAC FAMILY OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS HAVE CREATED A BIPOLAR EXPLOSION
Dr. Malcolm Bowers of Yale put out research in 1999 and 2000 showing how similar the SSRI antidepressants are to LSD and how they have caused such an explosion in the diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder which most doctors do not recognize as a temporary toxic condition produced by their medication but instead begin to treat it with more drugs – something I stressed throughout the 1990’s. This is the main focus of the testimony I gave before the FDA in 2006:
Derek Saretzky above stopped his “sleeping pill,” the atypical antipsychotic drug Seroquel (Quetiapine) abruptly two months before this tragedy….
Thinking about stopping your medication cold turkey, switching medications, starting Seroquel or any other serotonergic drug???? Read this current ongoing triple murder case and think again!!!!! You may also want to visit our Facebook group “Seroquel (Quetiapine) Should Be Illegal”
The second article is an interview with his grandfather who talks about the drug and alcohol problems Derek had previously and a fairly recent divorce. Keep in mind that antidepressants which produce terrible insomnia are very often prescribed after a divorce. So the Seroquel could have been prescribed for insomnia he developed from an antidepressant given to cope with the divorce. If so the Seroquel could have been his second exposure to a serotonergic medication and he could have been suffering insomnia, for which the Seroguel was prescribed, from the rapid withdrawal of the antidepressant. These drugs and their impact upon serotonin levels accumulate in brain tissue and each exposure produces more and more intense adverse reactions.
His grandfather also included the information that the elderly woman he killed first was a family friend he had done odd jobs for his entire life.
[I have left out the extremely graphic parts of this first article for you…others can read the article for the rest of the story including cannibalism.]
Always remember that a safe withdrawal is a gradual withdrawal & as you will see there is very good reason why the FDA issued their warnings on withdrawal from these serotonergic medications as potentially inducing suicide, hostility and psychosis. Rapid withdrawal is most definitely not worth the risk of going into a REM Sleep Disorder (where 80% hurt themselves or someone else), a manic psychosis or any other type of psychosis…..
ABRUPT or RAPID SEROQUEL WITHDRAWAL & THE REM SLEEP DISORDER
Killed in this case were Terry Blanchette, 27, and his two year old daughter Hailey and Hanne Meketech, 69, who was killed five days earlier than Terry and his small daughter. All of these killings were very brutal deaths which included no guns.
Abrupt withdrawal from any serotonergic medication can produce this type of impulsive murder, as well as suicide, as a patient slips into a REM Sleep Disorder which can appear months after the abrupt withdrawal. REM Sleep Disorder has long been known to produce both murder and suicide in a sleep state as the patient acts out nightmares.
It has been my experience in dealing with the adverse effects of these drugs that increase serotonin that all of them can produce this deadly sleep disorder. But the majority of the drugs involved have been the serotonergic antidepressants. Research indicates that 86% of those being diagnosed with this extremely deadly sleep disorder are currently taking antidepressants even though the REM Sleep Disorder has long been known as a drug withdrawal state.
The big problem with all of these new so called “atypical” antipsychotics like Seroquel, Zyprexa, Abilify, Risperdal, Geodon, etc. is that they are like a combination of an SSRI antidepressant mixed with an older anti-psychotic. So, you get similar adverse effects to these drugs as you do the antidepressants.
I do know that after testifying in these cases & documenting them for 25 years this drug-induced nightmare we are living in needs to end!!! I hope family members on both sides of this tragedy hold the drug maker responsible for these senseless deaths!!!
In a hearing in 2008 I presented testimony before the FDA on this deadly drug. We also have a Facebook group titled “Seroquel (Quetiapine) Should Be Illegal.” And there is a similar Facebook group for each of these atypical anti-psychotics and antidepressants.
From the article posted below this we read: “….he had stopped taking Seroquel – an antipsychotic medication – which he said he had been on to help him sleep. [PLEASE NOTE The prescription of this antipsychotic drug was for sleep, NOT psychosis! The psychosis was the result of the abrupt withdrawal from the drug.]
Saretzky said he had stopped taking the medication a few months earlier, adding, “Everything’s been a real blur since then.”
McCauley then asked about something Saretzky’s father had said about talking to the devil.
“[The devil] takes control of me sometimes and I don’t know how or why,” Saretzky replied…. [Even atheists have reported to me for years now that they feel possessed on these drugs or that someone else’s brain is in their body.]
He said that he had dated Cheyenne Dunbar, Hailey’s mother, after Hailey was born, but that he ended the relationship when he chose a friend over her. McCauley asked if Saretzky felt like Hailey’s step-dad, to which he responded, “Kinda I guess.”
As McCauley directed the conversation to the murder of Blanchette, Saretzky said, “I don’t even remember going to Terry’s house,” then saying, “God did it, not me. God did it himself.” [The going in and out of consciousness as one acts out the dreams or nightmares they are having.]
While remaining calm and telling Saretzky that he believed he was under the control of a demon
After continuing to deny that he played any role, Saretzky finally broke down… [Often the patient is not even sure what they have or have not done on the drug and it takes a lot of the puzzle pieces placed in front of them for them to realize that what they remember only slightly as a nightmare was reality.]
“Think I’d have a chance if I plead insanity?” Saretzky asked, after first inquiring if he might spend the rest of his life in prison. McCauley responded that it wasn’t something he had control over. [PLEASE note that the patients have always reported they had no control over their actions. I still remember young Kip Kinkle screaming over and over to police after committing one of the first school shootings on Prozac and Ritalin, “I had no choice!!!!” when he was being questioned about killing his parents and shooting classmates.]
Here you have Chris Cornell’s wife telling you her husband did not commit suicide and it must have been a reaction to Ativan. Add to that below you have Del Shannon’s widow explaining how what Del did was so totally out of character just as Chris’ wife stated and that she knew it was the Prozac that caused him to take his life.
(See link to transcript of Le Anne’s FDA testimony below)
Del Shannon was given the drug only for exhaustion from so many new gigs as his had career started really taking off again. He had recovered earlier from an addiction to alcohol.
One main problem with both of these classes of drugs is that they both cause cravings for alcohol and yet they both have warnings not to use the drugs in conjunction with alcohol. So you are set up from the get go with them. In fact it is the first thing I saw with Prozac that caught my attention because I saw so many who did not drink become alcoholics almost overnight on these SSRI and SNRI antidepressants. This is why we have a Facebook group titles Antidepressant-induced Cravings For Alcohol.
Not that either Del nor Chris were drinking. Del’s autopsy showed nothing. He was sober and had been for some time. And he had only taken Prozac for 15 days. Chris’ autopsy will not be available for weeks yet.
But what can make one pill have the impact of two or more is what is called “kindling.” Both Del and Chris had previous issues with drug or alcohol addiction and what does that do to one’s liver? It clearly impairs liver function and thus their ability to metabolize the medications they were prescribed. Seriously! What are doctors thinking?!!! That is such basic medical knowledge.
The fact is that recovering addicts should NEVER ever be given a drug as “treatment” because their livers are already compromised from the effects of the previous drug use! No one warns of this! In fact all I have seen in my almost 30 years of sounding the warnings about these drugs is the non-stop peddling of all these kinds of drugs to drug and alcohol recovery/rehabilitation centers!
Look at the example of Lindsay Lohan. On Zoloft she developed the cravings for alcohol that come with antidepressants and what did the court system do? They brought her in charged her for it and court ordered her to take her Zoloft! The same drug that was causing the cravings for alcohol in the first place was their solution for her improving her life! I hope she learns this some day and is able to sue them all for the hell she has gone through as a result! She is lucky to have survived it, but anyone who has lived through it can tell you that no one would ever want to experience what she has gone through on these drugs – her and far too many others!
The best recovery centers in this country with almost ZERO recidivism are those set up by Dr. James Milam. The reason he has such excellent results is that he uses diet and nutrition to support the patients and help them to heal. He understands that drug and alcohol addictions need to be treated for the hypoglycemia they either have caused or worsened so he puts them on a hypoglycemic diet. Drugs and alcohol deplete nutritional levels. Those levels need to be replenished after drug/alcohol use in order to heal, not further depleted with additional drugs, even if those drugs are currently legal – a status that is ever changing with many drugs. And the stronger effects produced by the prescription drugs needs to at least be considered along with the liver’s post drug function in determining its ability to handle those drugs. I do not see that happening and these two examples alone demonstrate how very deadly the results of that can be.
You can read a transcript of Le Anne’s testimony here:
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THE POTENTIAL OF THESE DRUGS TO PRODUCE SUICIDE IN ABRUPT WITHDRAWAL IS EVEN HIGHER THAN WHEN TAKING THE DRUGS….ALWAYS WEAN OFF EXTREMELY GRADUALLY AS THEY HAVE TERRIBLE WITHDRAWAL EFFECTS!!!
Featured above is Landen, 11, (Prozac), Utah, sadly this is from the picture featured on his funeral program. On Prozac Landen got up early one morning, cooked breakfast for his family, then walked in another room & hung himself
What are your children drinking that may cause this to happen to your child? Do you know? This boy dropped dead at school and his family is now warning others….Through his friends, investigators learned that Cripes consumed a large Diet Mountain Dew, a McDonald’s Cafe Latte and 16 ounces of an unspecified type of energy drink within two hours.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says children and adolescents shouldn’t consume energy or sports drinks at all and instead should be drinking water.
Of more than 5,000 cases involving energy drinks that were reported to U.S. poison control centers between 2010 and 2013, nearly half the children did not know what they were drinking, according to research presented to the American Heart Association in 2014. In many cases, children 6 and younger consumed a drink they found in the refrigerator, or one left lying around the house by a parent or older sibling.
It’s sometimes called the world’s most common drug, and regularly consuming as little as two cups of coffee (or three cans of soda) a day is enough to get you so hooked that stopping the habit can cause withdrawal symptoms, Murray Carpenter, author of “Caffeinated” said in Men’s Journal.
In small amounts, caffeine makes us feel good, but “it is a drug whose strength is consistently underestimated,” Carpenter says.
“A quarter teaspoon will lead to bodily unpleasantness — racing heart, sweating and acute anxiety. A tablespoon will kill you,” he wrote in “Caffeinated.”
That’s far more than the maximum safe level given by most health officials which is 400 milligrams a day, roughly the amount in 4 cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola or two energy drinks, the Mayo Clinic says.
How sad and tragic it took a child losing his life for such an important subject to be addressed. Our ability to perform & cope in life is built via good nutrition. Stimulants which force us beyond our own natural ability should always be avoided because they will deplete us of our ability to perform and cope by using up that energy which our bodies would naturally conserve for us if we would allow it to do so rather than forcing it.
I have long been very concerned over the high rate of use of these drinks full of not only the stimulant, caffeine, but yet another very strong stimulant drug so very similar to cocaine – refined sugar. This is not even mentioned in the article or considered as a contributor to this boy’s death when in fact not only was it a contributor, but also the aspartame he consumed in his diet Mountain Dew was as well.
Brain Scan Comparing Stimulant Effect of Sugar to Cocaine
Note the Sugar Appears to Have a Stronger Effect Than Cocaine!
Mental Health Concerns of Stimulants
Not only are there the serious physical health risks associated with these “energy drinks,” but also the mental health risks. With the child suicide rate announced last week to be doubled worldwide and as of last year tripled in Utah, we should be even more concerned about any stimulant a child is consuming because we know that basic science tells us what goes up comes down. Stimulants produce depression after the initial high we mistakenly refer to as an “energy boost”.
But depression is not the only mental concern produced by stimulants. Psychiatrists have long warned that these so called “energy drinks” are producing a toxic psychosis in children which can manifest as either Bipolar or Schizophrenia and it does not subside until the child stops drinking these stimulant drinks. How many of them are being misdiagnosed and instead of stopping the energy drinks or latte’s are instead treated with dangerous psychiatric drugs for the rest of their lives?
While we complain about how insane our youth are becoming we fuel that insanity by feeding them stimulants and/or never teaching them these things and allowing them to consume stimulants with no knowledge of the risks.
Any Antidepressant Connection Here?
Keep in mind while discussing stimulants that anti-depressants… the opposite of a depressant….is?
Yes! They are stimulant drugs!
When antidepressants can produce a doubling of cortisol with one dose that is a huge stimulant effect! So strong a stimulant effect is it that many patients end up with adrenal fatigue or failure as a result. You can only force the body for so long before it crashes and goes into burn out. That burn out comes when the adrenal glands can no longer or only barely produce the adrenaline they should produce. (See our Facebook group: Antidepressant-Induced Adrenal Fatigue/Failure https://www.facebook.com/groups/904424182981085/ )
But another way that antidepressants contribute to this stimulant effect is the cravings they produce for other stimulants: sugar, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, diet drinks, etc. People will report consuming abnormally huge amounts of all of these. Forget the four cups of coffee a day described as safe! They report drinking pots of coffee daily and do see them without a big gulp of diet pop once they begin drinking it is also rare. Which is why we also have the following Facebook groups online as well:
In Conclusion: Children Exposed to Antidepressants in the Womb
The are so many children being exposed to these drugs in the womb that there needs to be more said about the long-term effects of antidepressants upon these children. The first thing researchers noticed were the hypoglycemic effects these children have setting them up for an early diagnosis of diabetes if parents do not know to watch their diets closely. Increased rates of depression, anxiety, asthma – any of the many effects of elevated serotonin are what should be watched for with these children and most definitely an avoiding of stimulants of any kind. I will post my 2004 testimony before the FDA which lists all of the symptoms of elevated serotonin as I related them to the FDA Advisory Panel so you will know what to watch for:
If ANYONE would bother to actually read research (Something I have found EXTREMELY rare among physicians who generally just rely on drug salesmen to share info with them on new drugs!) they would find that the serotonin hypothesis in depression, anxiety, etc. is completely and totally backwards.
According to the pre-existing research on serotonin, long before these drugs were ever introduced to the market, serotonin is NOT low in depression, anxiety, ect. But in fact serotonin is actually elevated with all of these.
Serotonin Reuptake is Low!
What is low in depression is one’s ability to metabolize serotonin or serotonin reuptake – exactly what antidepressants are designed to impair! This is why they are called Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They inhibit the reuptake (metabolism) of serotonin! They should therefore, CAUSE everything the marketing of these drugs tells us they will cure. And patient experience over the past 30 years since these drugs were introduced proves that to be true!
If anyone is interested in reading that research I gathered all of that to include along with the experiences patients were reporting as a result of using these SSRI antidepressants in my book on the SSRIs & SNRIs (which also inludes the new atypical antipsychotic drugs and any others working on serotonin reuptake such as Wellbutrin, Lyrica, Gabapentin, all the Atipycal Antipsychotics, etc.) in my book, “Prozac Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!” there are 21 pages in small print of references to medical research in the back of the book to support everything said here. In fact the same material has been successfully used in court cases against these drugs. In fact serotonin is what LSD and PCP mimic in order to produce hallucinations/psychosis so as serotonin increases to higher and higher levels psychosis should be the expected end result along with this long list I shared with the FDA in the testimony below: migraines, hot flashes, pains around the heart, difficulty breathing, a worsening of bronchial complaints, tension and anxiety which appear from out of nowhere, depression, suicide – especially very violent suicide, hostility, violent crime, arson, substance abuse, psychosis, mania, organic brain disease, autism, anorexia, reckless driving, Alzheimer’s, impulsive behavior with no concern for punishment, and argumentative behavior.
Warning: Even though this information may be shocking to learn if you or a loved one is on one of these medications, whatever you do NEVER make abrupt changes in the dose of any of these drugs or come off them rapidly!!! If you do so the FDA has now warned those abrupt changes can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis. Sadly most need years to come off safely. You can learn here on our website how and why the brain needs such a gradual withdrawal process. And if you click “store” you can find my hour and a half long MP3 on safe withdrawal for only $4.95 which can be downloaded instantly with more information on serotonin than you will get in any one book I know of except for mine above.
FDA heard this in 2004
Here I am explaining to the FDA clear back in 2004 that incorrect serotonin hypothesis & what we should expect to see in our society as a result of the widespread use of these drugs:
I am Ann Blake-Tracy, head of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. I am the author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare and have testified in court cases involving antidepressants for 12 1/2 years. The last 15 years of my life have been devoted full time to researching and writing about SSRI antidepressants.
Research on serotonin has been clear from the very beginning that the most damaging thing that could be done to the serotonin system would be to impair one?s ability to metabolize serotonin. Yet that is exactly how SSRI antidepressants exert their effects.
For decades research has shown that impairing serotonin metabolism will produce migraines, hot flashes, pains around the heart, difficulty breathing, a worsening of bronchial complaints, tension and anxiety which appear from out of nowhere, depression, suicide – especially very violent suicide, hostility, violent crime, arson, substance abuse, psychosis, mania, organic brain disease, autism, anorexia, reckless driving, Alzheimer’s, impulsive behavior with no concern for punishment, and argumentative behavior.
How anyone ever thought it would be “therapeutic” to chemically induce these reactions is beyond me. Yet, these reactions are exactly what we have witnessed in our society over the past decade and a half as a result of the widespread use of these drugs.
In fact we even have a whole new vocabulary as a result with terms such as “road rage,” “suicide by cop,” “murder/suicide,” “going postal,” “false memory syndrome,” “school shooting,” “bi-polar” – every third person you meet anymore – along with the skyrocketing rates of antidepressant-induced diabetes and hypoglycemia.
Can you remember two decades ago when depressed people used to slip away quietly to kill themselves rather than killing everyone around them and then themselves as they do while taking SSRI antidepressants?
A study out of the University of Southern California in 1996 looked at a group of mutant mice in an experiment that had gone terribly wrong. These genetically engineered mice were the most violent creatures they had ever witnessed. They were born lacking the MAO-A enzyme which metabolizes serotonin. As a result their brains were awash in serotonin. This excess serotonin is what the researchers determined was the cause for this extreme violence. Antidepressants produce the same end result as they inhibit the metabolism of serotonin.
These are extremely dangerous drugs that should be banned as similar drugs have been banned in the past.
As a society we once thought LSD and PCP to be miracle medications with large margins of safety in humans. We have never seen drugs so similar to LSD and PCP as these SSRI antidepressants. All of these drugs produce dreaming during periods of wakefulness. It is believed that the high serotonin levels over stimulate the brain stem leading to a lack of muscle paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. The world witnessed that clearly in the Zoloft-induced murder-suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife, Brynn.
Connecticut witnessed the Prozac-induced case of Kelly Silk several years ago. This young mother attacked her family with a knife, then set the house on fire killing all but her 8 year old daughter who ran to the neighbors. As she stood bleeding and screaming for help she explained, “Help! My mommy is having a nightmare!”
Out of the mouths of babes we will understand these nightmares for what they are. She understood that this was something her mother would do ONLY in a nightmare, never in reality.
This is known as a REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. In the past it was known mainly as a drug withdrawal state, but the largest sleep facility in the country has reported that 86% of the cases they are diagnosing are patients on antidepressants.
Because this was known in the past as a condition manifesting mainly in drug withdrawal you should see how dangerous the withdrawal state from these drugs will prove to be. That is why it is so critical to make sure patients are weaned EXTREMELY slowly so as to avoid ANY chance of going into a withdrawal state.
Someone on Facebook shared with me a website on the “benefits” of LSD to get my response to this website that really upset her. The following is the comment I posted on their site to help them to see how insane what they have posted about LSD having “benefits” is and where it all came from! I thought you would find this information very interesting, especially if you have not yet learned it in reading my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
LSD & PCP MIMIC SEROTONIN TO PRODUCE HALLUCINATIONS
First you should know that LSD and PCP produce their hallucinogenic effects via mimicking serotonin. That is right, the same chemical you have heard so much about as a happy, warm, cuddly neurotransmitter that everyone needs to increase, especially if you are anxious or depressed!!! So as the serotonin level increases over time, rather than an instant reaction like when you take a hit of LSD, this LSD reaction takes place over a period of time as the serotonin increases to a toxic level. So in this gradual process of building the serotonin levels it appears that YOU are the one going insane, rather than the drug producing the instant insanity you can get from LSD while it mimics the neurotransmitter, serotonin.
This site did not even mention that Sandoz initially introduced LSD as a way to CHEMICALLY INDUCE INSANITY so that scientists could learn HOW psychosis is created! The site gives a long list of “benefits” of LSD and then lists all that LSD supposedly treats again as the side effects of LSD! So just like antidepressants it causes what they are telling you the drug treats!!!! See why I always have said it sounds like Eli Lilly pulled out all their old marketing materials on LSD, which they patented the end of February, 1956, to use in marketing their new “slow fuse LSD” in the form of their antidepressants – Prozac and Cymbalta?!
Find the link to this website I am responding to below my comments and links to additional information and PLEASE remember in sharing this information to anyone taking any one of these new serotonergic drugs in the form of an SSRI or SNRI antidepressant drug or in an atypical antipsychotic drug that they NEED to know how to wean safely off these drugs or it could be disastrous! So share with them our website www.drugawareness.org so they can see how to get the help they need in doing this. It has been my experience that doctors wean patients WAY TOO FAST, as they once did with steroids causing those patients to go psychotic, becausethey do not understand the reasons why safe withdrawal must be so gradual.
MY COMMENT ON THE LSD CONNECTION TO ANTIDEPRESSANT
“Wow! How did you get hold of Eli Lilly’s old marketing material for LSD?!! That clearly is what you have posted here, right? But of course missing from your material would be that Eli Lilly patented the synthetic version of LSD in early 1956 at the request of the CIA. The CIA wanted massive amounts to use in their mind control projects during the Korean war. (Hmmm…wonder if North Korea’s current leader found one of the CIA’s old stashes of LSD which would certainly explain his behavior! Or perhaps he is just using one of their newer “slow fuse” versions which have a strong effect upon Orientals – explained below.)
LSD WAS ORIGINALLY MARKETED TO CHEMICALLY INDUCE PSYCHOSIS
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL LISTED LSD TOXICITY SYMPTOMS ARE IDENTICAL TO
SEROTONIN SYNDROME – A CONDITION WHERE THE SEROTONIN LEVELS BECOME ELEVATED TO POTENTIALLY FATAL LEVELS & ALSO A SIDE EFFECT OF ALL ANTIDEPRESSANTS & ATYPICAL ANTIPSYCHOTICS
Also missing is any information on how LSD was used before Lilly’s patent is missing from your post as well. You would think though that most people reading about LSD certainly would want to know that Sandoz Pharmaceutical who first offered LSD (in its natural state – ergot fungus) had it listed as a way to chemically induce insanity so that scientists could see how insanity is caused. Obviously their honest marketing of the drug was a total failure as no one stood in line to take the drug for that reason (Gee I wonder why?!! LOL!)
AFTER ELI LILLY MARKETED LSD IT BECAME A MIRACLE CURE FOR MENTAL ILLNESS
So Lilly with their marketing brilliance and amazing ability to buy medical research ghost written to perfection, (See this example where they bought/bribed the approval of their new “slow fuse” version of LSD, Prozac: (https://www.drugawareness.org/meet-dr-john-virapen-the-man-who-bought-prozacs-approval/) at that point decided to come up with the material you have posted here to promote their latest “Wonder Drug” and had people lining up to take LSD voluntarily! (Apparently all those people lining up to take LSD had trouble comparing the risks to the benefits in order to see the massive discrepancies that showed the drug actually CAUSED everything they were marketing it to treat – or maybe they just never bothered to read the list like patients and their drug pushing/drugged up doctors of today do not read them.)
FAR MORE SPENT BY PHARMA ON MARKETING THAN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Is it any wonder Lilly, as most pharma companies, spend FAR more on marketing than they do on research and development?! $ell, $ell, $ell, is their bottom line! Along with what we MIGHT logically surmise as more sinister motives when considering their history and those with whom they associate.
But now that Lilly has their “slow fuse” version of LSD, their so called “antidepressants” Prozac and Cymbalta, flooding the market over the past three decades, along with all the other Prozac clones (like Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, etc.) society has been able to witness firsthand how well these drugs produce insanity in normal subjects: www.SSRIstories.NET! So now Sandoz can use this for their far more honest marketing of LSD as a product to chemically induce insanity.
CIA PUBLICLY REQUESTS A NEW DRUG FROM PHARMA AFTER CONGRESS BANNED LSD – HERE COMES PROZAC!
(For additional information on the similarity between LSD and antidepressants you can find that in my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! with a portion of that information included in the post below including the CIA’s public request for another drug from Pharma after LSD was pulled from the market by Congress banning the drug.)
HISTORY OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS: WHERE DID YOUR MEDICATION COME FROM?
How very sad and tragic that these medical disasters continue to destroy the lives of so many celebrities, as well as many more in the general society, and NO ONE seems to know that medications have done this to any of them! Glen Campbell is sadly only one example of so many more.
FIRST THE ARIZONA DUI
Years ago when Glen was arrested in Phoenix for drunk driving they let everyone know he was on the antidepressant Lexapro (You can find that in our database of thousands of cases at www.SSRIstories.NET). Most important to consider in his arrest is that all of these serotonergic antidepressants – SSRIs and SNRIs – produce overwhelming craving for alcohol – even in those who have never touched alcohol before. And for those who had alcohol problems previously, these antidepressants so often given as “treatment” in rehab, have been shown in medical studies to increase drinking by 45%!
Did anyone explain that to Glen Campbell back then? Of course not! That would cut into their profits. I am sure they did as most doctors were doing – increased his dose or just switch to a different brand of the same kind of drug.
See our Facebook group “Antidepressant-Induced Cravings for Alcohol” for more info on the alcohol cravings:
So in thinking the antidepressants were helping him he continued to use them as his various mental disorders worsened and changed from depression, to major depression, etc. He could have easily developed a Bipolar Disorder, as so many do who take antidepressants since antidepressants induce Bipolar so rapidly, but if he did I missed that one while I was attempting to keep up with all the other tragedies caused by these drugs.
Now for years we have heard that Glen Campbell is suffering from Alzheimer’s. But what he and so few others remain completely unaware of is that these drugs which are designed to increase serotonin produce all the symptoms of Alzheimer’s while they slowly shut down every body system. The drugs affect memory sp strongly that Amnesia is a common side effect!
Alzheimer’s disease has long been known to be a condition of elevated serotonin levels. The gummy gooey glossy substance they know builds up in the brain is the same gummy gooey glossy substance they found built up on the heart valves of those who took the serotonergic diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux.
These diet pill heart valve issues wound up being one of the very largest patient damage suits in the history of the US due to that gummy gooey glossy gunk that built up on the heart valves preventing the valves from shutting properly.
And what was the cause of that gummy gooey glossy gunk? Wwll according to the Mayo Clinic study by Dr. Heidi Connolly it was elevated serotonin – exactly the action of the these diet pills which increase serotonin levels from two directions while antidepressants do so from one direction.
So does that risk remain a concern with antidepressants as well? Certainly it should although it should take longer to produce this adverse effect than the diet pills due to the antidepressants increasing serotonin via one direction, serotonin reuptake, rather than two directions as the diet pills did.
But what about the brain?
While the drug maker got away with the massive brain damage … the drugs were actually pulled for causing brain damage, not heart damage. Most were left to believe the drugs were pulled due to the heart valve damage brought to light by Heidi Connolly’s research but that was clear back in June, months before the drugs were pulled. What was new was the research of Dr. Una McCann at NIH on the resulting brain damage from these serotonergic diet pills. Only two weeks before the drugs were pulled she published a study done for NIH indicating some of the worst brain damage I have ever seen. The catch was that when the FDA had issued a temporary approval for Redux the year before they were concerned there may be brain damage from these serotonergic diet drugs so they insisted that Wyeth do research to learn if that was indeed the case with Redux. But Wyeth had done NO research at all on brain damage associated with their drug by the time Una McCann’s research came out. This is the real reason why the drugs were pulled by the manufacturer.
The brain damage was clearly associated with the elevated levels of serotonin in my opinion and this is why antidepressants designed to increase serotonin can produce that same brain damage which I have no doubt is what has happened to Glen Campbell over the years.
ROBERT REDFORD’S FAMILY TOO?!
Is it just a coincidence that two of the states with the highest use of antidepressants, Florida and Utah, hold the two highest rates of Alzheimer’s?!!! Read this link to see how this same reaction affected Robert Redford’s Utah family very early on and could have ended the same way as Glen Campbell’s has…
And if anyone knows how to reach him they could let him know that he does not need to die of Antidepressant-induced Alzheimer’s, but that does not mean it will not be a long road back with a long and gradual weaning process and then rebuilding from all the damage.

Yet another drugged up future medical professional! Cannot count how many cases like this I have investigated over the past three decades! Who knows how many the world will have to witness before they finally wake up to this medication induced nightmare! You can see all of the details on this case in the link to the news story at the bottom of this post. You will learn he was arrested before for a DUI (and hopefully you know enough about antidepressants to know they cause cravings for alcohol and you can find all that documentation here on our site or in mor detail in my book on the drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!). When he was arrested then he said he had taken two pills of Zoloft. So what is he on now? Obviously he is experiencing the side effect of “homicidal ideation” which I would refer you to the post below where I have another patient who explains the reality of what homicidal ideation was for him after only two Zoloft – the same thing this fellow said he took.
Nurses have been telling me for years that 75% of doctors and nurses are on these drugs. And I hear repeatedly from doctors whose cases I have worked that the drugging started in medical school and continues for years into their careers. Those who peddle illegal drugs on street corners are in similar positions with those selling the drugs hooked on them also. Sadly there is apparently little difference rather than the one is a “respected professional” drug pusher and the other the guy on the street corner. Is it any wonder that NPR reported several years ago that 60% of cases of violence are happening in medical establishments?
Take a look at my post from a few weeks ago to see what just two pills of Zoloft can do and ask what this guy is on now…still Zoloft or just another brand of the same antidepressant drugs so similar to PCP?
“Homicidal Ideation” Described by Patient Who Suffered
This Antidepressant-Induced Side Effect
“Only two days on Zoloft and I wanted death bad – I wanted death like I wanted a new Ferrari…
but I wanted it not just for me, but for everyone!!!”
“I am a veteran of 15 years. I have seen the disasters from prescription medications especially the ones we were issued to treat PTSD and other mental illnesses. A couple of years ago, I agreed to take Zoloft as suggested by my doctor for depression. I had denied it for years.
“Within 2 days I waas truly suicidal. I wanted death bad. It wasn’t like the normal suicidal thoughts where I felt so depressed I would rather be dead, it was more like I wanted death like I wanted a new Ferrari. But not just for me, I wanted it for everyone! I wanted to get my friends together and thought let’s all die together. I have been confused by how this drug can make you feel this way. I certainly felt why so many commit suicide on these drugs and why it is a listed side effect! I tried to OD, but I sucked at it fortunately. I never touched another pill again.
