Paxil-Induced Murder Suicide Inspired Jennifer Anniston’s Movie “Cake”

Tim Tobin family

Tim, Deb and Alyssa Tobin

Well I don’t normally watch movies but will go watch this one since I worked on the Tobin vs Glaxo case for three plus years. Almost three of those years were spent waiting on the high profile attorney Jerry Spence to see if he would handle the case until he concluded he did not know enough about antidepressants to do the case justice. At that point Andy Vickery, who has been the lead attorney handling so many of these cases for many years, was brought in on the case. In the end the jury ruled that the two Paxil pills taken by Donald Schell before the tragedy was the main cause of Tim Tobin’s father-in-law, Donald Schell, killing his wife, daughter and infant grand-daughter before killing himself.

I actually learned about this case while testifying in the case of a woman in Western Wyoming who had shot her husband while he slept. She too was on Paxil and had no recall of what had happened but knew she must have been the one to shoot her husband as she had what she described as “a smoking gun” in her hand. So this women, described by all as the “nicest woman in town,” walked over to the Sheriff’s office and turned herself in.

Phil - Brynn Hartman

Comedian Phil Hartman and his wife, Brynn

 

The following morning after driving back from Wyoming the night before I woke up to the reports of the murder suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife Brynn. I was shocked that the case was identical to both of these Wyoming cases from the day before. The following evening I spoke with Brynn Hartman’s family and told them why I suspected the drugs and not to stop looking until they found one of these antidepressants. Because of what I had heard about the case I felt strongly antidepressants were behind it. I was not about to have the Hartman’s children go through life without either of their parents and no answers as to why their mother had done this.

All of these cases were much too similar. Although in the Hartman case the antidepressants involved were Zoloft and Tramadol, instead of Paxil. The Hartman children’s wrongful death case did not go to court as this one did but was settled by Pfizer the manufacturer of Zoloft.

Antidepressant-Induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD)

Although I agree that pain killers are a very serious problem I am disappointed that the drug involved in the Tobin tragedy was not addressed in this movie instead – the antidepressant Paxil. Antidepressants produce a sleep disorder called REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where the patient has no paralysis during sleep and can act out the nightmares they are having. It has long been known to include both murder and suicide. Latest figures show that 86% of those being diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder are taking an antidepressant. Even more frightening is that RBD has long been known as a drug withdrawal state so we could expect even more cases if the patient or their doctor does not know enough to understand that patients should wean extremely slowly off these medications to avoid the withdrawal.

Cake the Movie

Here is an introduction to the movie and background: EXCLUSIVE: The true story behind Jennifer Aniston’s Cake – how movie’s scriptwriter was inspired by the brutal murder of his brother’s wife, baby daughter and mother-in-law

Cake has been acclaimed for Aniston’s portrayal of suicidal mom hooked on prescription drugs in aftermath of car crash that killed her child

Daily Mail Online can reveal movie was written by Patrick Tobin after his brother’s young family was slaughtered by a relative

Deb Tobin and her nine-month-old daughter Alyssa were shot dead by her father, along with her mom Rita Schell, by Don Schell, her father

Tim Tobin, Patrick’s brother, found the horrific scene at father-in-law’s home in Gillette, Wyoming on Valentine’s Day, 1998

Schell was taking anti-depressant Paxil and Tim Tobin sued maker, winning $6.4m compensation after it was named ‘proximate cause’ of killings

Patrick Tobin then quit Hollywood to look after his suicidal brother and eventually wrote Cake as a result of experience

Jennifer Aniston’s career-defining performance in hit movie Cake has earned her a flurry of plaudits and award nominations.

The Friends star gives a gritty portrayal of suicidal mom Claire Bennett who is hooked on prescription drugs while struggling to live with debilitating injuries she endured in a car crash that killed her child.

When it was missed from the Oscars shortlist, many critics said it was a miss and should have been included.

But few watching the heart-wrenching Hollywood film will be aware that the screen drama is in fact inspired by a tragic and brutal real life story.

Daily Mail Online has learned that screenwriter Patrick Tobin penned the powerful movie following a devastating family tragedy that saw four of his brother’s family slaughtered.

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Mother Kills Two Sons & Attempts Suicide – Tucker Moneymaker

TuckerMoneymaker

On April 5, 1991, after only 21 days on Prozac Tucker Moneymaker’s wife Sandra, 36, shot and killed their two sons, David Lee, 8, and William, 16, while they slept before shooting herself twice in the abdomen in a suicide attempt. The bottle of Prozac was found in the room with them. Tucker had left for work at 7:00 AM and returned at 8:37 AM to find the boys dead and his wife bleeding and unconscious. Read below for the scientific data on how Prozac can cause murder/suicide.

Here is the video of Tucker Moneymaker testimony before the FDA hearing (FDA Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Hearing) September 20, 1991:

And here is the text of Tucker Moneymaker’s testimony to the FDA on September 20, 1991:

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION

FDA Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Hearings

DR. CASEY: Thank you. Tucker Moneymaker, please?

MR. MONEYMAKER: Thank you. On behalf of myself and thousands of other citizens in the states of North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, of which I happen to be the Prozac Survivor Director for these three states, I want to say thank you for allowing the public to come up here and speak and voice their opinion about this dangerous drug.

I also want to tell everybody that these are real stories, real people. This is not something written down on a piece of paper, something somebody wrote up somewhere. These are real things that are happening.

My story is also real. It’s just a real nightmare, something I have to live with every day. I had two sons, David Lee, age 8, and Billy, 16, a wife of 20 years, is all gone. I’ll tell you why. In March of this year my wife, Sandra, had some nerve problems. She was asked to go be evaluated. The doctor put her on Prozac. He told her she was depressed because she was having nerve problems.

Now, I want you to keep this in mind, how my wife was, just a little short story. My wife was the kind of mother that always put the kids first. She would take her kids back and forth to school every day. My 8-year-old never rode a school bus. My wife was tied up in the church, tied up in Cub Scouts and room mother at school.

I heard these people talking about scientific data. I want to show them some scientific data. This is scientific data right here. I want you all to look at it. This is scientific data for those who say we don’t have scientific data.

I haven’t slept but about two hours since Sunday.

I want to apologize if I sound a little shaky. After being on Prozac for 21 days, my wife shot and killed both of these two boys right here. She turned the gun on herself and shot herself herself twice. Now she’s in jail for murder.

This is the kind of lady that never took a drug, no mixed drinks, no alcohol, no reason to be depressed, just some nerve problems, like everybody has from time to time. I’m depressed. I’ve got legitimate reason to be depressed. I want to ask you all, don’t let this happen to anybody else. These are real people. You know, these murders and things are senseless. It’s time to put a stop to it.

Thank you.

HOW ANTIDEPRESSANTS CAN PRODUCE MURDER AND SUICIDE:

There are several ways. First of all they impair the metabolism of serotonin so that serotonin will build up in the synapse. And we were suppose to believe that was beneficial. But take a look at this research from the University of Southern California on excess serotonin producing extreme violence: https://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

Another way it can be done is by inducing the REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) – a state in which one acts out nightmares and which has long been known to include both impulsive murder and suicide. At this point 86% of those being diagnosed with this disorder are taking antidepressants. Because of the time of day this case happened it would most likely be triggered by RBD.

Another way they can induce this type of violence is by chemically inducing a manic psychosis. In the beginning of the SSRI antidepressant era psychiatrists refused to prescribe Prozac due to its strong ability to induce mania/Bipolar Disorder. That is far from the case now though.

1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Le Anne Westover Testifies of Husband Del Shannon’s Prozac Suicide

Le Anne Westover - Dell Shannon

Le Anne Westover & Husband, Charles (Del Shannon)

Everyone needs to hear these testimonies presented to the FDA in September of 1991 on the subject antidepressants causing suicide and violence. The FDA chose to ignore these testimonies that day leading to many more deaths since. My dear friend featured here, Le Anne Westover, lost her husband Charles, also known as the popular singer Del Shannon, in only two weeks to a violent Prozac-induced suicide. His senseless death, along with so many others documented both in these testimonies and this database www.ssristories.NET should NEVER be forgotten!!!

Please listen to Le Anne’s testimony here:
https://youtu.be/FiF4Pd6rat8

The following is a transcript of LeAnne’s testimony to the FDA that day:

DR. CASEY: Next is Mrs. Del Shannon, please.

MS. SHANNON: Lee Ann Westover.

DR. CASEY: Excuse me, are you Mrs. Del Shannon?

MS. SHANNON: I am Mrs. Del Shannon, yes. I am the widow Del Shannon. My husband 1990. On the evening of of Charles Westover, also known as was given Prozac on January 24 of February 8, 1990, he killed himself. I am told his death was instantaneous, but I believe his death actually began the moment he took his first dose of Prozac.

Before Prozac, my husband was very involved with people, our family, and his work. He was very much in charge of his business. But within days after he started taking Prozac I noticed a personality change in him. He showed signs of restlessness, akathisia, agitation, pacing, and his appearance was very drawn. He developed severe insomnia, extreme fatigue, chills, racing heart, dry mouth, and upset stomach. His hands would shake uncontrollably at times.

This really alarmed him. I would ask him what was wrong and his only reply was, “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

At this time my husband’s career was better than ever. He was just finishing a new album and was at his utmost creative peak. Many good things were happening in his life.

On January 24, he saw a doctor for counseling, as changes were happening rapidly. Due to these changes, he went to a doctor because he was experiencing some stress. He was given Prozac. Two weeks later I found him dead in our home. He told me, when he came home from the doctor, that he was given a new drug, “It’s not even a drug, it’s a chemical, it’s very safe. It’s supposed to help me over the hump I’m in.” The drug was Prozac.

Charles was very much against suicide. He counseled people against suicide. To him, and I quote “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” I want you to know suicide was totally out of character for my husband.

There was no note. The day he died he had made appointments for afternoon and evening. He had booked future and no kiss goodbye.

On February 8, my daughter and I were going to the market. He asked for some vitamins and other items that he wanted from the market. He kissed me, smiled, and we said, “See you later.” There was absolutely no warning of suicide or anything violent.

I know with absolute certainty that if Charles had any idea of the side effects of Prozac he would never have taken it. This drug is most assuredly responsible for any torment or suffering and the eventual suicide of my husband. I want people to be aware of what can happen when you take this drug Prozac.

Thank you.

DR CASEY : Thank you.

Rest in Peace Del…you are not forgotten!

PTSD TREATMENT = ANTIDEPRESSANT: Utah Veteran Kills Fiancee, Son and Self

Jordan Reeves

Jordan Reeves, 2

Sunday in Salt Lake City, Utah yet another veteran being “treated” for PTSD shot his fiancee, two year old son, and himself just before noon. Now I hope by now you can all read between the lines well enough to know that being treated for PTSD means he is getting at least one antidepressant and likely two because the VA almost always prescribes the antidepressant Trazadone as an add on treatment to “help them sleep” since they cannot sleep because of the first antidepressant they were given!

Note also that because it happened before noon it could likely be the result of REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) as these cases generally tend to happen late at night or the early morning hours. RBD is a sleep disorder where the patient lacks paralysis during sleep and allowing them to act out nightmares they are having. Shockingly 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are currently on an antidepressant and this is not headline news as it should be.

To see how this tragedy would easily qualify as this man’s worst nightmare I share with you what his friends and those in the program with him had to say about him so you can see how completely out of character this type of violence was for this young man.

Johnathan Reeves Family

Jamie Salazar, Jordan & Johnathon Reeves

“Reeves had a prior history of domestic violence, threatening in August to kill his family. He was arrested and charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault. Reeves was placed in the veteran’s treatment program, designed to help those who have returned from their tour of duty and get in trouble with the law. Many of the court’s participants are also battling post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries, mental illness or addiction.

Those familiar with Reeves’ case say he was as close to a model participant as could be found. His drug tests were clean. He was attending all his court hearings and treatment sessions. And he was helping other veterans, according to court officials.

Friends said Reeves was a combat veteran with multiple deployments who loved his family.

“He was a good, kind hearted, talented young man. I don’t know why war affects even the best of men this way, but he truly was the best of men,” one man told the Deseret News.

The man, a friend of Reeves’ family, added: “We are grieving so greatly. The loss of Jamie, Johnathon and their precious child! Post-traumatic stress is the issue. How do we help these wonderful men and women veterans?

“All his family and friends knew his kind heart. He was a good man and that is evident in that he was doing so well in treatment. He really was the guy that would help someone broke down on the side of the road, or feed you if you were hungry.”

Why James Holmes Called Crisis Line to Stop Him From Committing The Shooting

James Holmes

James Holmes, Batman Shooter

Dr. Reid, the prosecution’s expert, clearly knows LITTLE about the drugs he and his colleagues regularly prescribe to patients – the same drugs prescribed to James Holmes which produce “psychosis” and “homicidal ideation” But if he admitted knowing such it would then point the blame on the drug makers and on him and his colleagues’ livelihood. Is that not a vested interest in not allowing the truth of this case to be told? If he admits the drugs pushed James Holmes into this as they have so MANY others: www.ssristories.NET are he and his colleagues any less guilty than someone who slips drugs/alcohol to someone who then commits a crime?

It has already been made public that James Holmes was on Zoloft, a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor – the same antidepressant initially given to Eric Harris from Columbine who was taken off the drug after only six weeks because he was having thoughts of killing that greatly disturbed him. Unfortunately his doctors apparently thought if the name of the drug was different, even though it was the same type of drug/same action in the brain, it would have a different effect upon Eric and switched him to the antidepressant called Luvox. Wrong move!

Zoloft is often referred to as Prozac #2 and Luvox as Prozac #4 since they are clones to Prozac and work similarly in the brain. As you read the medical research below keep in mind that these SSRI antidepressants work by increasing levels of serotonin (5HT) in the brain. These drugs are known to produce both psychosis/schizophrenia and homicidal ideation. Ideation is a compulsion where you think obsessively of both homicide and ways to commit homicide – exactly what James Holmes described in his writings and interrogations.

When a patient suffers this adverse reaction to the medications they long for anyone to stop them because the compulsion is so strong that they cannot stop themselves. James as so many others report was doing things he hoped would lead to someone who would stop him from doing what he was being chemically compelled to do.

As you read this quote from my book Prozac: Panacea OR Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! it will help you see how similar in action these serotonergic drugs are to LSD and PCP, drugs we have seen in the past that are now illegal although once thought to be “safe and effective” while they were prescribed by physicians. This will also help explain the psychosis/schizophrenia producing effects.

“Tonge and Leonard (1969) compared phencyclidine [PCP], Ditran, mescaline and LSD and their effect upon 5-HT (serotonin) and 5-HIAA (serotonin turnover). All four drugs increased brain 5-HT (serotonin) and decreased 5-HIAA [serotonin turnover/metabolism] over a three hour period. As we pointed out before inhibition of 5-HT (serotonin) is known to result in a decrease of 5-HIAA (serotonin turnover) while it increases extraneuronal content of the 5-HT (serotonin) (Buus, et al. 1975; Nabeshima, et al. 1983). Kenneth M. Johnson in 1978, thirty years after our official introduction to PCP, recommended that, “…Because of the suggestive nature of the foregoing studies with PCP and the proposed role of 5-HT [serotonin] in emotional and psychotic behavior, it is felt that a detailed biochemical study of the effects of PCP on serotonergic function is warranted…” (PCP PHENCYCLIDINE ABUSE: AN APPRAISAL , p. 46).

“This information on elevated serotonin levels and their connection to schizophrenia would imply that Prozac and the remaining SSRIs, along with any of the drugs which raise serotonin levels [by inhibiting serotonin turnover/metabolism] should all be classed as psychotomimetic drugs, [because] over a period of use they are chemically inducing a psychosis thus mimicking schizophrenia. As early as 1986 Prozac’s potential to induce psychosis emerged when an FDA Safety Reviewer uncovered that Lilly had withheld information of psychotic episodes in 52 patients during Prozac’s clinical trials.”

Antidepressant-Induced Psychosis & Everything Else They Cause

Zoloft and heart disease

Understanding Antidepressant-Induced Psychosis

And Everything Else They Cause

I have been going back through my book Prozac: Panacea OR Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! (Keep in mind that the only reason Prozac is the only antidepressant mentioned in the title is because it is the mother drug to all of the other SSRI and SNRI clones to follow it) to gather information for a court case and thought I would share something I ran across. It seems that so many who know enough to be against these drugs do not seem to know how simple it is to prove the deadly potential of antidepressants in producing psychotic breaks or so many other adverse effects. Hopefully just this one quote (although there is MUCH more) is enough to help everyone understand how similar in action these serotonergic drugs are to drugs we have seen in the past that are now illegal although once thought to be “safe and effective” also will help explain the psychosis producing effects.

“Tonge and Leonard (1969) compared phencyclidine [PCP], Ditran, mescaline and LSD and their effect upon 5 – HT (serotonin) and 5 – HIAA (serotonin turnover). All four drugs increased brain 5-HT (serotonin) and decreased 5-HIAA [serotonin turnover/metabolism] over a three hour period.

2004 February FDA Testimony of Jamie Tierney Given Effexor for Migraine Headaches at Age 14

Jamie Tierney

A neurologist, who certainly should have known better, gave the SNRI antidepressant, Effexor, to 14 year old Jamie Tierney. Let her share with you what horrors she suffered as a result. Luckily her parents knew what they were seeing in Jamie’s behavior was not her and continued to search for answers. I still remember her mother’s first call to me and the hours upon hours spent in helping Jamie to be able to withdraw safely off of this deadly drug that almost took her life.

Listen to her February 2004 testimony before the FDA here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uhec-FDVEW4

And so common for so many young people who are targeted with these drugs as they enter college Jamie was offered the antidepressant Wellbutrin with the sales pitch that this antidepressant does not work like the other antidepressants (BS!) and it is safe so there is no need to worry. Jamie suffered the same nightmare all over again. Thankfully she survived that and has learned to avoid any of these drugs for the rest of her life!

February 2004 FDA Testimony of Corey and Jay Baadsgaard – Why I Took a Gun to School

Corey Baadsgaard

Since it seems from the feedback we received after posting Mark and Cheryl Miller’s FDA testimony that many of you were unaware of all the testimonies on our site I thought I would post a few more for you.

This is Corey and his father Jay Baadsgaard from Mattawa, WA. No one gained more media attention at the February 2, 2004 FDA hearing on antidepressants and children than did Jay Baadsgaard, who has now been serving as our Washington Co-Director for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness for many years. In watching their presentation to the FDA you will see why. Jay has one of the deepest and longrange voices I have ever heard. Find the link to their testimony here: https://www.drugawareness.org/corey-baadsgaard-fda-testimony/

And you can find Corey’s story in the following video as to what happened to him when he suffered one of the most deadly adverse reactions to antidepressants known as a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) where you act out nightmares in a dream state. Corey got up from a short nap, but did not wake up as he took a gun to school under the influence of Paxil and Effexor. He held classmates at gunpoint while he fluctuated between homicidal and suicidal ideation for 45 and to this day has no memory of it. Here is the link to his story Why I Took a Gun to School: https://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

Mark and Cheryl Miller Testify Before the FDA on the Zoloft-Induced Suicide of Their Only Son, Matt, 13

Matt Miller

Matt Miller, 13

I hope you have all had the opportunity to visit our website’s video section at www.drugawareness.org to view testimonies from all of us to the FDA in the 1991, 2004 and 2006 hearings on antidepressant-induced suicide. You will see clearly that the FDA should have taken action on the SSRI antidepressants back in 1991 when Prozac was the only SSRI on the market – long before all of the other Prozac clones appeared on the market to result in the killing so many more innocent victims.

Below is a link to the testimony of Mark and Cheryl Miller in February of 2004 about the Zoloft-induced suicide of their 13 year old son, Matt, after only 7 pills. You will also find these testimonies listed in our database of Antidepressant Nightmares at www.ssristories.NET Mark originally set up our website in 1997 and served as our webmaster for the next decade.

ANTIDEPRESSANT? 13 Year Old Behind School Machete/Crossbow Attack Killing a Teacher

Spain school attack

Spain: School Attack With Machete & Crossbow

On the 16th anniversary of Columbine yet another school incident in Spain today. No matter the weapon, on an antidepressant the person will find the means to do what this young man just did and demonstrated for the world.

“A 13-year-old student armed with a crossbow and machete killed a substitute teacher and wounded four other people Monday at his high school in Barcelona, Spain, before being taken into custody, police said.

“It was the first documented case in Spain of a pupil killing a teacher, according to the country’s teachers union. The attack took place on the 16th anniversary of the massacre at Colorado’s Columbine High School, during which two students gunned down 12 of their classmates and a teacher before committing suicide…”

“He was very disturbed and saying strange and incoherent things.
– Jose Miguel Company, spokesman for the Barcelona prosecutor’s office.”

“Police in Barcelona said they had no motive for Monday’s killing. The boy’s classmates told local Catalan media that he was not known as a troublemaker. But one classmate told La Vanguardia newspaper that the attacker was obsessed with the military, collected weapons at home and even drafted “kill lists” of teachers at his school.”
