Anniversary: 3 Nurses on SSRIs on Trial Over 3 Month Period for Killing Their 11 Children

Sunday the Chicago Tribune carried the story of Marilyn Lemak, the nurse married to a doctor, who 20 years ago, killed her 3 children in their Naperville home. The case still haunts law enforcement but not for the right reasons because no one ever learned the truth about why this happened!
Had the case been tried properly they would have argued the fact that she was on two drugs, Zoloft & Ativan, which cause murder & suicide due to their inhibition of serotonin metabolism. After poisoning her three children with her medications, she put her wedding dress on & poisoned herself as well. When she woke up & realized she was not dead yet, she then slit her wrists.
In the same 3 month period, two other nurses went to court for killing their children while on these drugs.
In Texas, Andrea Yates on Effexor & Remeron drowned all five of her children. In none of these cases were these drugs used in their defense.
Socorro (Cora) Caro in California, whose husband was also a doctor who had given her Prozac, shot their three sons, before shooting herself. You can find all three cases below with links to their cases in our database at www.ssristories.net

CORA CARO DOCUMENTARY
And here is a documentary on the Cora Caro case along with my comment posted there with all kinds of additional information since the documentary is done by a group which does everything they can to downplay the fact any of the cases they cover involved these antidepressants (Can we assume funding from Pharma? I have little doubt!)….

MY COMMENT: Yes Cora Caro was “a woman pushed over the brink” BY PROZAC! Everything else you mention going on in her life was used as a reason to give her Prozac.  The drug increases serotonin & produces not only cravings for alcohol, but also results in elevated serotonin which produces extreme violence exactly the way PCP does! Prozac just does it more gradually.
Her attorney should have used the testimony of Dr. John Mann given in the 2001 case of Tobin vs Glaxo where a total of only two doses of the SSRI, Paxil, were found to be the cause for a mild-mannered grandfather to shoot & kill his wife, daughter, infant granddaughter & himself. Dr. Mann, the expert brought in by Glaxo, not the defense, testified that according to his decades of research on serotonin the effect these drugs have upon inhibiting the metabolism of serotonin should be expected to produce impulsive murder and suicide.
And then there is the 1996 study on mutant mice who lacked the ability to metabolize serotonin due to a genetic defect. Researchers in this study determined it was the elevated levels of serotonin which produced the extreme violence the mice exhibited:
The evidence is very clear that these three boys were murdered, but not by their mother. They were murdered by Prozac – the same determination made by investigators in France in the early ’90s in the Kevin Kohlenberg murder/suicide case after an eight-month long in-depth investigation. The French media, unlike our media with massive vested interests, reported “…both Kevin and his friend were victims of an American drug”
There were 3 American nurses, all on these drugs, 2 married to doctors, who went to court over a 3 month period for killing their children. Cora Caro (PROZAC), Marilyn Lemak (ZOLOFT & ATIVAN) & Andrea Yates (EFFEXOR & REMERON). There have been MANY more which you can see in this database of thousands: www.SSRIstories.net
When, when, when will the public be given the truth?!

LEEZA GIBBONS SHOW-MOTHERS KILLING THEIR CHILDREN

ATTN: NEVER ABRUPTLY CHANGE THE DOSE OF THESE DRUGS WHEN STARTING, STOPPING OR SWITCHING MEDS!

Mother Recently Released From Psych Ward Kills 3 Young Daughters & Self

MY COMMENT ON THIS STORY: Link.
WHERE’S THE MEDIA?
No Dale you don’t get it and neither does anybody else reading these nightmares because the media is not telling you the full story. They can’t tell you the full story because if they do they lose all of their advertising money.
How do I know? Because I’ve had producers tell me that to my face before I’ve done shows on this very subject. The one that had the courage to do the show on mother’s killing their children because of the so-called mental health drugs they were being given was Leeza Gibbons & guess how long they allowed her to stay on the air after doing the show on this subject. A whole 3 months after airing the show I will post for you below.
Oprah wouldn’t touch it because her attorneys were afraid of another lawsuit like she had faced before by the Texas Ranchers after she did her show on Mad Cow Disease. That is why you don’t get the whole story. It is money driven.
THE REST OF THE STORY THE MEDIA WILL NOT SHARE
Here is the whole story! This is happening to the richest country in the world because we are the ones that can afford the drugs (“medications”) that have caused this nightmare in which we all find ourselves! The same drugs that just killed this family and caused 4 mass killings Nationwide this past week!
Michigan has been one of their targets from the very beginning because you cannot sue pharmaceutical companies in the state of Michigan! This family should be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit for these three little girls and their mother! But because it happened in Michigan they’re out of luck in obtaining any type of Justice!
ADDITIONAL CASES:
How can America be so incredibly blinded by this whole ridiculous Mental Health story they’ve made up for all of us to believe in so that they can keep us selling us their deadly drugs?! These are drugs where their own expert testified in a mass killing just like this one, where three family members were slaughtered by the mild-mannered grandfather who took only two doses of these damnable drugs. He testified that the antidepressant drug’s effect upon serotonin should be expected to produce impulsive murder and/or suicide! After hearing all the evidence the jury agreed with that expert witness (keep in mind he was an expert for the drug company, not the family!) and rendered the verdict that those two pills were the main cause of this tragedy. They awarded the family $6.4 million – hardly compensation for the loss of 4 loved ones in such a horrific manner. (If you want to look that up it is a Wyoming case Tobin vs Glaxo.)
I have been tracking and investigating these cases since 1990 and cannot believe the public has not woken up to this! In finding a case of a mother who has killed her children it is next to Impossible to find one, even one, who was not on these serotonergic antidepressant drugs when they did so! These things did not happen before these drugs affecting serotonin became so popular! They were not epidemic like they are now before these drugs became so popular! Yes, it would be wonderful if these mothers could get help instead of being handed their worst nightmare in a pill!
WHY DIDN’T THE FAMILY SEE IT COMING?
And for those of you trying to blame her family you need to go back to a case in Ardmore Pennsylvania where this time it was a father on the antidepressant Effexor who killed his wife, her parents, her daughter, and himself. If you’d like to try blaming that family for not seeing it soon enough to stop this you need to know what the wife’s position was while working for the Effexor manufacturer. Yes, she worked for the drug company supplying her husband’s antidepressant. Her job was taking adverse reaction reports for Effexor!!! Now in that position, if anyone should have been an expert in seeing something like this beforehand it would have been her! Most especially it should have been her after seeing reports that Andrea Yates, on Effexor, drowned her five children while on it! And the world blamed her husband & his mother for not seeing it either. (Rusty Yates do you want to comment on this?) The manufacturer did add “homicidal ideation” as a side effect not long after this tragedy, although you had to read to page 42 of the package insert to find that warning!)
Just scan through some of these thousands of cases we have seen from these drugs to see just how many high-profile cases of mothers killing their children involved these drugs! I have watched it explode into epidemic proportions over the last three decades.
DRUGS WHICH INCREASE SEROTONIN CAUSE EXTREME VIOLENCE
 
It is long past time to quit muddling around in all this psychobabble & look at what has been the main cause of violence in our society for decades – drugs!!! If any of you can remember the serotonergic drug PCP,  “Angel Dust”, these newer antidepressant drugs are the closest thing we have ever seen to that drug, which was the most violence producing drug the world has ever seen!  And guess how it produced that violence – Serotonin!
PS: For those of you blaming this on moral or religious issues… You need to know that these drugs cut you off from feeling hope, turn molehills8í in your life into mountains, & impair your ability to feel God or spiritual feelings. Yet, Christian women, are the highest users of these drugs & I believe were targeted with the drugs. This article explains how these drugs do that & point out the warnings we were given in the scriptures by Isaiah & John the Revelator that this would happen in our day: http://www.drugawareness.org/articles/spirituality-and-sorcery
Leeza Gibbons Show on Mother’s on Antidepressants Killing Their Children:
What is really frightening is the extent of the impact of these drugs upon our society by a commenter on my Facebook page about this case who sadly has made perfectly correct connections…
“Maybe the murder-suicides are just the tip of the iceberg of how these drugs are altering society. What if for every 1 SSRI-induced murder or suicide there are 10 cases of belligerent behavior? What if this is behind 3rd wave feminism? What if this is behind the recent “gender fluidity” craze? What if this is why dating is dead? What if this gave rise to incel culture? What if this is behind #metoo? What if we can only even begin to imagine the ripple effect these drugs have had through society, on the people who aren’t even on them, because a new normal has been set which is actually serotonin-crazed, and the people not on the drugs are so bewildered now by the world that many of them are put on the drugs simply because they don’t know how to deal with a world on these drugs?”

FL Shooter Medicated for Years – Mother Works for FDA, is PhD in Toxicology

 

 

David Katz’s Mother, Elizabeth Katz, Works for the FDA with a PhD in Toxicology

 

David Katz’s Parents & Family: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

As has been made public David Katz has a history of antidepressant & antipsychotic use along with several stints in psych hospitals throughout his young life. On top of that we have just recently learned that his mother is a toxicology with the FDA!

“More specifically, the records state: “Elizabeth (Katz), who has a Ph.D. in toxicology, is employed by the United States Food and Drug Administration…” Her bio on FDAZilla says that she is from Silver Spring, Maryland.”

 

The Florida Shooting Takes Me Full Circle

This case takes me full circle from the 1992 suicide of Marc Pizzuto of Columbia, Maryland, whose case is featured in the Prologue of my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare right back to Columbia, Maryland also home of the latest Florida shooter David Katz. See the excerpt of the prologue from my book below on the Wesbecker case & on Marc Pizzuto’s case below…and there was another case I worked on right next door to Columbia in Ellicott City in 2004 where Ryan Furlough, a young man on Effexor, poisoned his best friend during a sleep over. Here is a link to that case: (http://ssristories.net/archive/show2b9a.html?item=250)

 

So the obvious question is: As a toxicologist, how did his mother not see this coming?

 

David Katz’s mother works as a toxicologist for the FDA and she did not even realize how toxic her own son was to lead him to this action?!!! This is the perfect example of just how completely clueless the world is to the extreme brain toxicity & the lack of warning given to patients & their families when it comes to the SSRI antidepressants and the serotonergic antipsychotics!

 

How “homicidal ideation” warning was added to Effexor

 

This scenario reminds me of the 2002 Effexor-induced mass murder/suicide in Ardmore, PA which moved the manufacturer to add “homicidal ideation” as a warning to their antidepressant Effexor – one of the two antidepressants Andrea Yates was on at maximum dose of both drugs when she drowned her five children.

 

In this PA case the husband took the microphone at church on a Sunday evening to accuse his wife publicly of having an affair with her best friend’s husband – all a delusion brought on by the toxic effects of the antidepressant.  The police had to be brought in to get him down from the podium. (http://ssristories.net/archive/show2ee9.html?item=1925)

 

How Does a Serotonergic Agent Produce Psychosis?

 

Now why of how would an antidepressant produce hallucinationsor psychosis? When these drugs increase serotonin they gradually take those who cannot clear all that serotonin out quickly enough to keep from preventing the same type of psychotic break that LSD or PCP would produce. This happens because those two drugs, once prescription drugs which are now illegal, mimic the neurotransmitter, serotonin in the brain. So as antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics increase serotonin you get the same end result.

 

Now how does this case tie in with this shooting in Florida Sunday?

 

Two days later the officer in charge called and spoke with Michael Burgess to check up on him and make sure things were okay. They had a nice conversation and a half hour later Mr. Burgess shot his wife, her teenage daughter, then chased her elderly parents through the house and out in the yard where he gunned them down before shooting himself.

 

His wife, Cassandra Burgess, worked for the manufacturer of Effexor doing what? She took adverse reaction reports for Effexor!

 

Calling in the adverse reaction report for this PA mass murder/suicide

 

I called in the adverse reaction on this case & explained I had an adverse reaction to report on Effexor. The woman said, “Okay, and the adverse reaction was?”

 

I replied, “Mass murder/suicide.”

 

She said, “Oh! Okay….(catching her breath) And patient name?”

 

I said, “Michael Burgess.”

 

She repeated, “Michael”….then screamed, “Michael Burgess?!!!! Did you know his wife worked right here in this office?!”

 

Of course I already knew but replied, “You mean to tell me she worked right there next to you taking adverse reactions day in and day out and she did not see this coming in her own husband soon enough to save her life, the life of her daughter or her parents or his?!!”

 

She said very softly, “I guess not.”

 

The officer also told me someone could have knocked him over with a feather because there is NO WAY he would have believed the man he had just spoken to was about to do this.

 

So if a toxicologist for the FDA can miss this coming in her own son soon enough to save these young lives in Florida, how safe are any of us interacting with so many on these drugs?!!!! As an expert in these cases since 1992 you do not want me to answer that question for you! These people do not come with serotonin meters on their foreheads! How do we know when that level reaches a toxic level? Take a look at what we have seen and documented so far: www.ssristories.net

 

And what is even worse is that most people and even most doctors do not know that in order to come off these drugs safely to avoid triggering a psychosis from withdrawal you must taper EXTREMELY SLOWLY over months or years! (See withdrawal information below)

And what is even worse is that most people and even most doctors do not know that in order to come off these drugs safely to avoid triggering a psychosis from withdrawal you must taper EXTREMELY SLOWLY over months or years!

Marc Pizzuto’s Story…

PROZAC: PANACEA OR PANDORA? OUR SEROTONIN NIGHTMARE!

PROLOGUE

THE PANDORA’S BOX

“All at once, every evil and spiteful thing flew out, like a swarm of insects infesting the earth with pain and sorrow….thanks to Pandora, life on earth was never quite so joyful ever again.” From the story of Pandora’s Box

On September 14, 1989, Joseph Wesbecker blew the lid off the Pandora’s box unveiling one of the most terrible of the paradoxical reactions to Prozac when he walked into his former place of employment, Louisville, Kentucky’s Standard Gravure Corp., took the elevator to the third floor, and as the elevator doors opened, started firing with an AK-47 semiautomatic assault rifle. In what authorities called a “blood bath you don’t get over,” Wesbecker took eight lives and wounded twelve others before taking his own life.

Unfortunately, the first medical letter to be published on the relation of Prozac to suicidal ideation and violence came too late for Joseph Wesbecker and twenty of his former co-workers. Although he had been placed on permanent medical disability the previous year after being diagnosed as “manic depressive,” he was described as never having had a history of violence. He had never struck his wife or children and in thirty-two years had never had an argument on the job. He had never tried to hurt anyone else, and everyone who worked with him described him as your average “nice Joe.” Yet one of his victims described the same man, as he turned a gun on her, as “totally devoid of any human element, and human soul….He was just `gone.’ There wasn’t anything there.” (Friends, family and acquaintances in describing individuals who are in trouble on one of these serotonergic medications often refer to them as “gone,” There seems to be no other way to describe the complete change in personality that takes place.)

What was the catalyst that turned this gentle man into a savage bloodthirsty murderer almost overnight? His psychiatrist was shocked by his patient’s obvious deterioration. Two days before the shooting spree the doctor took Wesbecker off Prozac after a five-week period of usage and wrote these notes:

• “Patient seems to have deteriorated. Tangential thought.

• “Weeping in session. Increased agitation and anger.

• “Question (?) from Prozac.

• “Because of deterioration I encouraged patient to go into the hospital for stabilization but he refused.

• “Plan – Discontinue Prozac which may be cause. Return to clinic in two weeks.”

He didn’t return in two weeks. He walked into the annals of history two days later as one of the most notorious mass murderers ever.

Wesbecker had for many years been taking lithium for his manic reactions and continued to take it along with the Prozac his doctor had recently prescribed. In the inquest a jury ruled that the drugs “may have been a contributing factor” in this case.

Joseph Wesbecker’s experience with Prozac began to arouse public awareness to the seriousness of the adverse reactions connected to this drug. Tragically, Wesbecker’s reaction, nor any warning since then, has been loud or clear enough to awaken us all to the painful reality of the potential very serious dangers of the specific serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

On March 6, 1992, Jim and Carri Pizzuto’s only child, Marc, 22, brought that awareness home for them by putting a gun to his head and pulling the trigger. Jim has spent every minute since then asking himself over and over and over again why he did not listen to every word of the television program on Prozac he had seen several months earlier. Or why he had not heeded the warnings given. How he wishes now that the program had been more bold and straightforward rather than so “politically polite” in presenting both sides of the issue. Why hadn’t the program reached out and grabbed him, shaking into him the fear he now has of the drug? Why hadn’t it made him realize then the impact those warnings could have made in his own life within a few short months? Why hadn’t it made him realize the reality of the danger lying in wait for his own loved ones? Why did it have to be Marc who taught him that lesson in a way that will be embedded deeply and painfully within his soul forever?

Now the questions never end for Jim and Carri, nor for Marc’s friends and family. With an intensified interest they now closely listen to every news report of violent or bizarre behavior or violent suicides and murders and wonder if anyone knew enough to ask if Prozac was involved. They worry about those left behind with all the same questions – those who have fewer or no answers about this drug than they had – answers to help them begin to understand the tragedies with which they are left to cope.

Marc Pizzuto had deeply touched the lives of many in his short 22 years. Throughout his childhood, he was loving, energetic, confident and contented. His parents saw no signs of depression except for brief periods during his last two winters, when he complained of symptoms resembling Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). A doctor at his Maryland University health center prescribed Prozac. Five weeks later, Marc was missing classes (something he had never done before), and sleeping excessively, and the following week he was dead.

Jim describes his son as “the most remarkable and gifted person I have ever known.” He felt it a privilege to have been Marc’s father. Even though he has every reason to be prejudiced in his opinion of his son, Jim Pizzuto does not stand alone. Marc was loved and admired by all he met. One of Marc’s classmates in his Conflict Partnership class shared with their professor his feelings about Marc: “We always got into long discussions after class, and I never could keep up with Marc’s depth of thought. I admired the way Marc seemed so fascinated with every aspect of life. He was the kind of person I wanted to be.”

Their professor, Colman McCarthy, is a writer for The Washington Post. He described Marc as “a young fellow who glowed with life and had ample self confidence to handle the routine academic ups-and-downs that periodically come to every college student….He had qualities that would hearten any teacher: a reflective mind, an appetite for the give-and-take delights of classroom discussion, and a writing style that was sensory in tone because he avoided the stiffness of term-paper prose in favor of letting his feelings flow. Marc, in the General Honors program (He kept a 3.8 average and was on an partial academic scholarship.), had the rarest of undergraduate gifts – intellectual openness. He savored exploring new ideas and seeing where they would take him. He spoke of becoming a professor.”

Marc wrote two papers for Mr. McCarthy’s class: “The Utility of a Nonviolent Lifestyle” and “Conflict Partnership – A Remarkable New Approach to Managing Conflict.” In the second paper Marc wrote: “I am rather fortunate. I feel my parents have taught me many of the techniques found in Conflict Partnership, techniques that are indeed effective. Unknowingly, they have taught me by their example as well as through their interaction with me. Yet I am now more aware of the nature of conflict after reading this book, and I believe I am better equipped to handle future conflicts with greater skill.”

Marc’s statement should help us understand why all who knew him wonder why he handled his last conflict in a manner so totally contrary to every non-violent example he had set for 22 years. They wonder why this solution was so adverse to those principles he had always lived with so much conviction. Everyone wonders, that is, everyone who does not yet understand the violent compulsive behaviors that can be chemically induced through the altering of brain function. Jim reflects on his son’s life: “He was blessed with an abundance of natural qualities – exceptional good looks, a strong, six-foot tall stature, confident blue-grey eyes, casual sandy colored hair and an unforgettable smile. He was charming and witty, thoughtful and considerate. He was especially blessed with a wonderful mind and a genuine concern for others. He was the center of our world and all that parents could hope for….Marc was determined in his convictions but always considerate and open to new ideas. He was genuinely concerned about the lives of people, the people close to him and the people of the world….He belonged to environmental and nature clubs and world conflict resolution groups. He thought and spoke creatively about world issues. His potential was infinite. He made good judgments in all aspects of life. He developed his mind with dedicated study and learning. He had a passionate love for reading and after absorbing its wonders he would pleasantly articulate the essence of his newly acquired philosophies. He cared for his health with physical activity and good dieting habits. He enjoyed sports and daily maintained his fitness with exercising and running. He was a non-smoker and ate wholesome, healthy foods. He was a vegetarian. He felt the excessive waste caused by polluting fertilizers used for growing grain to feed beef; this extravagant waste of grain could be put to far more efficient and humane use in feeding the starving peoples of the world. Furthermore, he opposed the way animals are confined and raised in feeding pens, and did not want to contribute to the animals’ abuse by the meat industry. Marc cast his vote by living his principles – unfailingly, those principles were sound and just.”

In memory of Marc, his fellow students and friends at the University Career Development Center, where he worked, planted a Yoshino cherry tree in the center of a prominent square on the university grounds. It’s a peaceful place, with benches, green grass, tall trees and stately buildings. Along a shaded path, on a brick wall, near the tree they placed a bronze plaque inscribed with a quotation from one of Marc’s papers: “The Best Education is the One That Instills the Love of Learning.” The cherry tree symbolizes Marc’s keen interest in Japanese culture; it will also bloom each spring and mature into a grand symbol of Marc’s fascination for learning.

Jim ends his description of his son with: “Marc’s positive spirit and thoughtful consideration was felt by everyone who knew him and remembered by anyone that met him even for a few brief moments. His innate qualities made us love him – his remarkable intelligence, his expressions, his sincerity. He touched us deep in our hearts and made us love him very much….We were encouraged by his example, his values and philosophies. Even as Marc’s father, I frequently sought and benefited greatly from his clear thinking and sound judgment. Through his infancy, and as he grew, he was the greatest joy possible in life for his mother and me. His excellence gave our life great meaning. I was constantly amazed and inspired by his brilliance. That this brilliant mind would in the end conclude that suicide was somehow a solution….does not fit.”

Is Prozac (and all the Prozac clones we have seen since in the way of antidepressants 7 atypical antipsychotics) the catalysts that produce in these people an obsessive, violent obsession to kill and be killed? Are these patients being chemically induced to take their own lives and the lives of those around them? No one agency has yet tracked the connection between any of the serotonergic meds and suicide or their relationship to violent crime. How many deaths have there already been of which we are unaware because no one has taken notice of them? How many more deaths do we need to witness? How much more terror to the victims and to the perpetrator himself? How many more wonderfully creative individuals – the greatest gifts to our world – can we afford to lose before we learn the answer to that question? How many more Marc Pizzutos will have the answer to these questions before it is too late?

48 HOURS ONLY!!! WATCH THE INSPIRING MOVIE “MAY I BE FRANK?” FROM DRUGS TO HEALTH

The Picture Above is Frank After and This is Frank Before

How Frank Ferrante Went From Depressed, Suicidal, Seriously Ill

to Healthy in Only 42 Days!

So many of you were disappointed when I reposted the blog on the amazing transformation of Frank Ferrante in the movie “May I Be Frank?” because the link to the free viewing of the movie had expired. Well today I got an email from Food Matters who are offering a free viewing of the movie for the next 48 hours beginning this morning!!! So I am encouraging all of you to watch it to see the amazing changes one can make with diet and other alternatives in such a short time. Keep in mind that Frank not only had been on Effexor for 10 years, but during the same time period he also was being treated with Interferon for Hepatitis C, and I think he was also being medicated for diabetes. The Hep C was gone in 23 days! You will witness an incredible change first hand and Frank will keep you laughing through most of it.

(WORD OF CAUTION: If you are not accustomed to a NY Italian’s rough language, get ready to ignore it and watch the miracle of Frank becoming who he says is the person he came here to be!!) Our original post on Frank’s story is posted below.

(ALSO BE CAUTIONED THAT FRANK DID NOT COME OFF HIS EFFEXOR COMPLETELY DURING THIS TRANSFORMATION. WE WILL BE SPEAKING WITH ONE ANOTHER SOON TO SEE JUST HOW HE WAS ABLE TO DO THAT AND HOW LONG IT TOOK HIM. PLEASE CONTINUE TO ENCOURAGE THOSE CONSIDERING WITHDRAWAING FROM AN ANTIDEPRESSANT TO DOWNLOAD MY MP3 “HELP! I CAN’T GET OFF MY ANTIDEPRESSANT!” ON HOW TO DO SO SAFELY BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES IN DOSE: https://store.drugawareness.org/product/help-i-cant-get-off-my-antidepressant-mp3-download/ )

Have you watched Part 5 of the workshop yet?

If not, click here to watch part 5 now! Then click the link in the upper right hand corner where it says “Watch Now”

There are such valuable insights during this part of the workshop, as we discuss more of the emotional side of cleansing and health journey. We can’t cleanse our bodies without cleansing our emotions, and both are incredibly valuable.

Make sure to check out my fun and inspiring chat with Frank Ferrante. Frank has a truly unique perspective on life and health and has come so far in his journey.

We want to thank you so much for joining us for this workshop, and also want to commend you for taking the time to educate and inspire yourself to live a healthier life.

So now you might be wondering, “How how do I put these learnings into action?” This can be the most difficult part of the path because we often don’t know what to do next!

Our 7 Day Food Matters Cleanse is the perfect next step for you, if you are ready to start rebalancing your body and removing toxins that are holding you back from experiencing ultimate health and vitality.

It’s so easy to let our health be put on the “backburner” and not realise that we are robbing ourselves and those we love of our best self. I often think back and wonder where my father would be today, if he had not taken action and made his health his #1 priority! It’s kinda scary to think about…

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

corey

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

To see the full Gary Null production of the movie The Drugging of Our Children from which Corey’s story was taken go to this link: https://www.drugawareness.org/the-drugging-of-our-children/

Ann Blake Tracy, Executive Director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org and www.ssristories.NET) will be on the international radio show “The Power Hour” with Captain Joyce Riley tomorrow morning, March 9, 2015, from 8:00 – 9:00 AM Central Time. You can access the show on the web from around the world at http://www.thepowerhour.com/ The subject of course will be antidepressants and since Joyce has long been the most vocal advocate for veterans in the country over the past two and a half decades we will be discussing the problems within the military as a result of the high antidepressant use among vets.

Immediately following the interview with Ann Blake Tracy will be a live interview with George Parnham the attorney for Andrea Yates, the Texas mother who drowned her five children as a result of taking the antidepressants Effexor and Remeron and having both abruptly and drastically changed (dropping one by 1/3 of the dose and increasing the other by 1/4 of the dose) just the day before – something the FDA warns can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis.

Without doubt Andrea suffered the REM Sleep Disorder, long known to be the most dangerous withdrawal effect of antidepressants where you act out nightmares in an unconscious state. It has been found that 86% of those being diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder are currently taking an antidepressant, yet no research has been done to show the percentage of those in withdrawal from antidepressants who are suffering REM Sleep Disorder. Rusty will tell you in a heartbeat that losing their children was without any doubt Andrea’s worst nightmare. The children were her life. She had even quit her nursing career to spend all of her time with them.

Drugawareness.org YouTube Channel – Teens on SSRIs

Jamie Tierney

It seems few of you are aware that the International Coalition for Drug Awareness has its own YouTube Channel with lots of information there. Once you subscribe to the Drugawareness Channel you will automatically be notified as we send out new videos – something we are gearing up to do a lot of in the near future as we comb through all of my older videos and recordings.

Find one video below as an example of some of the videos you will find there.

Sign up for the YouTube Drugawareness.org Channel here:

And here is a direct link to the videos on our YouTube channel: https://www.drugawareness.org/videos/

The following example is a news piece that covers the experience of two teens, Christopher Pitman & Jamie Tierney. At age 12 Chris was prescribed Paxil and then Zoloft and after only a few months killed the two people he loved the most, his grandparents, and then proceeded to burn the house down with their bodies still inside. Jamie at 15 became suicidal and full of rage after being given Effexor for migraine headaches.

You can see that news piece here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlLiAfiueo4&list=UUo-6uMPDOtwaPe1ec3Rhr3A

In posting the new information over the next few months I would hope it would give you a good picture of how much information has been out there for how long and what all has been accomplished at this point. If you are wondering why these antidepressants are still on the market from what you are seeing and learning currently, just wait until you see all that has already transpired and the information that has been out on the drugs for years now.

I have long said that those beginning to see this situation with these drugs need desperately to learn the history behind what has already transpired. We will also be including some very long, in depth, radio interviews on these drugs that will teach you things you have not yet heard anywhere else even though they are over a decade old. I encourage you to listen and learn and share with others so that they can see this antidepressant fiasco for what it really is.

Are Vivid Dreams A Concern in Antidepressant Use?

 

Dr

Dr. Tracey Marks

Thanks to our Southern Washington State Director for ICFDA (International Coalition for Drug Awareness) who learned firsthand how deadly vivid dreams are in association with antidepressant use when his son took a gun to school in a dream state while on Effexor and in withdrawal from Paxil and held his classmates at gunpoint for what seemed an eternity for some.

Dr. Marks downplays any importance of the SSRIs repression of REM sleep and the vivid dreams or nightmares associated with these drugs and even suggests switching to another antidepressant if this reaction bothers you…yet she gives no warning of the dangers of switching medications by going off abruptly and then on another one abruptly – the way all meds are prescribed.

My response to this video and the incorrect information relayed:

“This is perhaps the MOST IRRESPONSIBLE statement I have ever heard on antidepressant adverse reactions!!! These antidepressant-induced vivid dreams are the most dangerous reactions anyone can have next to Serotonin Syndrome. That is because the vivid dreams indicate you are on the verge of suffering an antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) where you act out these dreams or nightmares! Add to that the fact that in RBD 80% are known to hurt themselves or someone else. RBD is even known to result in murder and suicide committed in a sleep state! Before SSRIs RBD was rare but not now and now 86% of those being diagnosed are taking an antidepressant – a figure shocking even to the world’s leading experts on this disorder who found this percentage!

“The repression of REM sleep via a medication reaction or sleep deprivation has long been known as a trigger for psychotic breaks. So I am confused as to why would you tell patients not to worry about this? Eric Harris, the lead shooter at Columbine, had those vivid dreams about killing his classmates for some time on the antidepressant Luvox before acting out those dreams on April 20, 1999!

“I have raised the issue of this deadly sleep disorder associated with antidepressants often preceded by the vivid dreams for 2 1/2 decades and would like to know if you have vested interests due to working for a pharmaceutical company? Or are you trying to avoid a wrongful death suit brought by a patient who suffered this reaction? Something just does not smell right when you are downplaying such a deadly reaction to antidepressants.”

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. These reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

Memory Loss on Zyban (Wellbutrin)

“I just wanted to share this, so sister/fellow sufferers won’t have to settle for these drugs.”

 

I actually have been on Zyban (Wellbutrin) just recently and in trying to get off of it, am having that same dang “EBP” that I did with Effexor!! Dizzy, running into things, moody/crying, and this weird thing like you’d expect to find with someone who’s had a stroke. I KNOW what I want to say, but I can’t bring the picture into my mind, so I can’t bring up the name. If that makes sense. I don’t mean words that I can’t think of because they’re stuck in my long-term memory, but words like “Popsicle” and “scone”. Even worse are words that are abstract, such as “audible” and “trepidation” (of which I am having quite a bit of, I must say!). Have you heard of anything like this with others on Buproprion? And if so, when does it pass?? DOES it pass???

I have always been very articulate, having started reading at age 3, and have a love of language and words. I can go look up a word in the dictionary, and 20 minutes later finds me still at the book, actually reading it! I am very concerned about this side effect/withdrawal, this “dead zone” created in my brain.

I know Effexor effects epinephrine, norepinephrine and serotonin…..which is the same thing the cocaine effects! I do know that PTSD sufferers seem to have damage to the endocrine system, and the epinephrine and norepinephrine are involved. Effexor, initially, worked miracles for me (I had tried EVERY kind of therapy known to help). I found a therapy called EMDR, which worked miracles……..LASTING miracles. I just wanted to share this and pass it along, so sister/fellow sufferers won’t have to settle for these drugs when they just might have a much better avenue! A lasting one, WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS.

Cold turkeyed off Effexor and Etrafon

“I continue to cite your book to all I can reach. I believe in you, and thank you so very much!”

I’ve read “PROZAC: PANACEA OR PANDORA?” with great interest after your first “Art Bell” show. I was fortunate to be able to tape the second show with B. Simpson.

Thanks to your efforts, I now have all the support I need to warn friends about the pitfalls of these drugs.

My story:

Long term depression. Working physical job at printing outfit. Duties included fork lift driving. I went to the doctor for some relief; he prescribed Effexor, and Etrafon-forte.

My most pronounced side effect became noticeable to my wife; the persona of pure apathy.

Her father was killed in a car accident, and at the funeral, I couldn’t cry- became ultra-spiritual about his role in “the afterlife.” He was a Salvation Army officer and musician in the string band. He was loved by everyone. I miss him, but I do feel his presence even today; four years after my cold turkey episode.

My personal hell came in the form of unwanted thoughts that, without a firm spiritual background, I might have acted upon- as some of the examples presented in your case studies.

I decided that the drugs were the cause of my thoughts, and just stopped taking them one day. Things got worse, and I resorted to a relapse to drinking after a four year sobriety.

My drinking took off to three day binges, and I assaulted my loving wife while in a blackout.

Iwas jailed, and went through treatment. Over a six year period I’ve had three such episodes, but remain free of the SSRI’s. I’ve found relief with Librium, but they tapered me off of it while in the last treatment. I now feel totally lost, and have all the physical problems of stress, including fibro myalgia. I am now self employed making furniture.

I just got on the net at home, and wish to thank you for your insight-full work exposing this problem. I continue to cite your book to all I can reach. I believe in you, and thank you so very much!

Yours in central MN
