ROBIN WILLIAMS Born: July 21,1951 Died: August 11, 2014
This weekend should not pass us by without addressing the anniversary of the passing of one of the greatest comedians of all time, Robin Williams. He died three years ago of Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD). He had at least 2 serotonergic drugs in his system when he killed himself.
One antidepressant found in Robin Williams toxicology test, Mirtazapine, Remeron, has 10 drug regulatory agency warnings citing suicidal ideation.
The mainstream media are reporting that Robin Williams had no drugs in his system when he died, but what they mean is no ‘illegal drugs’. He did have two serotonergic prescription medications in his system, these are legal drugs, and they can often be worse than street drugs as many users will attest to and which have long been known to produce LSD effects and even test positive for PCP. Sadly these (side) effects are not as well known by the public, nor their physicians. But we do know that the hallucinogenic effects of LSD and PCP are brought on by their mimicking of serotonin – the very chemical these serotonergic medications are designed to increase. As a result SSRI’s, SNRI’s, tricyclic antidepressants, MAI’s, atypical antipsychotics, or any other drug which increases serotonin levels can cause all sorts of problems, from inducing self harm, mania, akathisia, suicidal ideation, aggression, homicidal thoughts etc… Anyone on them long-term is asking for trouble…but even short term they can cause all sorts of nasty side effects as was demonstrated in the courtroom verdict finding only two doses of the antidepressant Paxil to be the main cause of the mass murder/suicide of the Donald Schell family in Wyoming in 2001.

This weekend should not pass us by without addressing the anniversary of the passing of one of the greatest comedians of all time, Robin Williams. He died three years ago of Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder (RBD). This is a disorder I wrote about almost three decades ago in my book on about antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare! as being the most deadly side effect, or abrupt withdrawal effect, of antidepressants . Here is our Facebook group by that name on this disorder where one acts out their worst nightmare in a sleep state:
Facebook Group: Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder
Although his wife amazingly was able to track down what it was that drove him to take his life – a REM Sleep Disorder, she attributed it to Lewy Bodies, not knowing how common RBD is to antidepressant use nor the fact that the overwhelming majority of RBD cases, 86%, are diagnosed in those taking an antidepressant.
But Robin was not on just one, but two of these drugs which produce this deadly sleep disorder known to cause the patient to hurt themselves or someone else in 80% of the cases (including both murder and suicide) as they act out these drug-induced nightmares.
Our Facebook groups for the antidepressant and atypical antipsycotic Robin was taking, which we firmly believe need to be pulled from the market….
Facebook Group: Remeron (Mirtazapine) Should Be Illegal
Facebook Group: Seroquel (Quetiapine) Should Be Illegal
The mainstream media are reporting that Robin Williams had no drugs in his system when he died, but what they mean is no ‘illegal drugs’.
So what was his prescription drug history? What all had he been given as he was treated for depression, Bipolar, etc. What doses were they? And how long was he on them? How rapidly was he taken off them? All these things can contribute to this final tragic outcome. I firmly believe Robin’s family deserve to know the truth about the dangers all the prescription drugs he had been given…
Some news sites are reporting the name of the atypical antipsychotics he was given as, Seroquel.
“When authorities found Robin’s body … they saw a closed bottle of Seroquel, a drug that treats schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and depression. It was prescribed a week before he died.
This news site is reporting, Seroquel (an atypical anti-psychotic and the antidepressant, mirtazapine (Remeron Zispin)
“In general, some antidepressants, especially SSRIs, can paradoxically exacerbate some peoples’ depression or anxiety or cause suicidal ideation. Despite its sedating action, mirtazapine is also believed to be capable of this, and for this reason in the United States and certain other countries it carries a black box label warning of these potential effects.”
Both classes of these types of drugs all carry Black Box warning labels for suicide.
There is an emerging controversy regarding quetiapine fatalities. The deaths of at least six U.S. military veterans who were given drug cocktails including quetiapine have been attributed to its inclusion by military doctors to treat PTSD.
Approximately 10,000 lawsuits against AstraZeneca for problems ranging from slurred speech and chronic insomnia to death have been filed by individuals from civilian populations.
Some have argued that additional somatic and psychiatric symptoms associated with dopaminergic super-sensitivity, including dyskinesia and acute psychosis, are common features of withdrawal in individuals treated with neuroleptics. This has led some to suggest that the withdrawal process might itself be psychosis-mimetic, producing psychotic-like symptoms even in previously healthy patients, indicating a possible pharmacological origin of mental illness in a yet unknown percentage of patients currently and previously treated with antipsychotics.

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