Methadone is also a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor which has been involved in serotonin toxicity reactions. … These symptoms are characteristic of serotonin syndrome which is often described as mental status changes, autonomic hyperactivity, and neuromuscular abnormalities
(The medical examiner’s office referred PEOPLE to the local district attorney, whose spokeswoman was not immediately available.)
No matter who you are, how high profile you may be, & how hard you have fought to educate about this Pharma created nightmare in which we all find ourselves, it still comes through your own back door & draws you into the nightmare!
This is the chilling warning that every family in America would suffer this drug-induced nightmare given to the world in 1991. My good friend pharmacist Maria Malakoff, who lost her own husband, Gary, also a pharmacist, in a horrific Prozac-induced suicide when he stepped between the TV & his family who were watching a movie & shot himself in the head. This is the report Maria shared in the first FDA Advisory Committee Hearing on September of 1991…
The Kennedy family just lost another loved one way too early, a beautiful young woman, Saoirse Kennedy Hill, 22. Police and rescue were called “to reports of an overdose inside the Kennedy Compound.”
Her grandfather, Robert F. Kennedy, & his brother, John F. Kennedy, both lost their lives by assassination while serving our nation. Her mother, Courtney, was the fifth child of Robert & Ethel Kennedy. She was only 11 when she lost her father.
Sadly two of Courtney’s brothers, Saoirse’s uncles, Douglas & Robert, have done far, far more than most to wake people up to the dangers of Pharma with her Uncle Douglas doing more mainstream media than anyone else has on the dangers of antidepressants when he was with Fox News National (You can see several of those very informative news clips on our ICFDA YouTube Channel.)
And her Uncle Robert Kennedy, Jr. has been an incredible voice for children damaged by vaccines and has just recently won some of the biggest court cases ever against the chemical giant, Monsanto, for cancer causing effects of Glyphosate, the main ingredient in the popular weed killer, Round Up. While her aunt Mary gave her own life as a warning when she lost her life in an antidepressant-induced suicide.
But in spite of their best efforts yet another family member has apparently lost her life to these deadly drugs. Also happening at a time most would never suspect it coming as she spent time enjoying her family at Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
And leaving yet another family to mourn the loss of yet another beautiful soul her family & our world has been robbed of:
‘The world is a little less beautiful today.’ She lit up our lives with her love, her peals of laughter and her generous spirit. Saoirse was passionately moved by the causes of human rights and women’s empowerment and found great joy in volunteer work, working alongside indigenous communities to build schools in Mexico. We will love her and miss her forever.”
The same is true in my own family in spite of all of my efforts to bring the negative effects of these deadly drugs to light. While doing so we too have suffered serious suicide attempts, devastating life long birth defects, numerous divorces, the estrangement of family members, the gender altering effects, etc.
The whole truth about these drugs must be made known, the hidden things brought to light & all that be made very clear so that everyone fully understands the extent of the damage associated with them BEFORE they ever put one of these pills in their mouths! There has never been a patient who has taken one of these drugs who has done so with a fully informed consent & very few who have survived those effects who have ever gone on to be given the full information as to the extensive negative effects of these so called “antidepressant drugs”!
The gag orders MUST end! This is a public safety issue! The full truth of the involvement of these drugs in the school & mass shootings & every other case of violence needs to be disclosed! And their involvement in all the military suicides & sudden death cases among these young people needs to be brought to light. Use of these mind altering drugs, which affect judgment, among lawmakers & judges whose decisions affect so many lives for years to come, needs to be made public. With all of us being kept from seeing the end result of the use of these drugs where is our warning? There is none! This is why I have devoted every minute of the last 30 years of my life & every penny to my name in investigating, gathering, and making public the effects of these drugs upon unsuspecting patients who have become victims of these drugs. Here is the proof, here is the blood of those crying out to the world as a warning to not fall victim to the same fate they have fallen victim:

Wow! How many officers in SLC are on the same medications the public there is also taking?!!! Last summer we learned 25% of the women there are on them. Utah has long led the way in the use of the drugs. But to watch this you would never know that one of the first public lectures I gave on the antidepressant-induced violence was to the police in that county! Of course that was in the early 90’s so these would all be new officers who did not hear the information..
April 20, 1999 Chief Ortega, Salt Lake City Police Chief, was on the phone with me discussing the antidepressant-withdrawal shooting at the LDS Family History Library where my good friend Don Thomas lost his life as the security guard there. (I couldn’t tell you how many lectures he & I had spent discussing the dangers of these drugs as I warned him what he could be & did end up facing that day!) As Chief Ortega & I were speaking the Columbine shooting broke out & he asked if I thought that was an antidepressant case which of course it was. (In fact Columbine Survivor Mark Taylor, who took 6 to 13 bullets that day almost 20 years ago and sued the drug company for causing Columbine, just called me yesterday. I served as the expert in his case. I’ll have to send him a copy of this.) But Chief Ortega had seen enough of these cases in SLC & wanted to have a press conference on the violence these drugs were producing back then. In watching this video I realize we should have held that press conference even though it was right after that he discovered that his wife had terminal cancer & he needed to retire.
I am absolutely shocked by the response of these officers! I have worked with enough police chiefs that I know how many officers there are being given these drugs which are known to produce extreme violence & very impulsive violence and suicide. In fact in a murder-suicide case I worked in Wyoming for several years the drug company’s own expert testified that with the the way these drugs inhibit the metabolism of Serotonin what should be expected as the end result is impulsive murder & suicide! The jury ruled in that case that only two doses were enough to produce this mass murder suicide which left a family of four dead. But withdrawal done too rapidly, which happened in the Salt Lake Family History Library shooting can produce the same result. Withdrawal must be very very gradual to be safe.
Take a look at this short article on a study showing the extreme violence that comes from excess serotonin:
My response to a woman who read the above information and swears these drugs saved her. She also thought I should not be sharing private information.
None of what I shared here was private personal matters. All of it was professional Dana. And according to the judge in the first large Prozac induced murder/ suicide case in Louisville, KY, this is information that should be made available to the public and never have a gag order on it because IT IS A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE.. That judge spent two years of his own time investigating that case in order to prove that there had been a Secret settlement of at least $50 million that was kept hidden from the public and not recorded as a settlement, thus allowing the drug company to use that case as “evidence” that Prozac was not the cause of that violence. Judge Potter was determined not to allow something like that to happen in his courtroom. And he was just has adamant that the public needs to know about the connection to these drugs in these cases involving violent crime and I agree with him. Here is a list of several thousand more which are all documented: SSRIstories.net
While I am sorry you and so many others were not given this information, as you should have, before they ever gave you these pills – drugs which are so incredibly difficult to withdraw from if you do not know what you are doing, at least you are getting the truth now. Sadly so many of these on this list did not get that information soon enough to save their lives.
The doctor whose research was used to develop this group of drugs, Dr. Candace Pert, came out against them in Time Magazine, October 8, 1997 calling the drugs “monsters” and wishing her work would never have been used to make them possible.
Also the doctor who worked for the drug maker came forward in 2010 to do his first interview in the US here in Utah. He admitted that these drugs were approved through bribery. He was the one who bribed the approval for the drug company and wanted to do what he could to reverse the damage he had caused by his actions.
What is tragic for all of those who were lied to about these drugs is that it takes years to wean off of the drug safely because the withdrawal must be so extremely gradual, generally taking years to wean off safely! There is nothing fair about that. Everything about this is wrong.
But then everything was wrong with the diet pills fen-phen and Redux which killed and disabled so many before being pulled from the market.
How many died before PCP (Angel Dust) was pulled after seven years on the market? No one knows. Sadly it took law enforcement and judges to get that one pulled because the AMA and FDA were not concerned.
And everything was wrong about the over 50,000 who died from taking the drug Vioxx pulled only a few years ago. And so many more prescription drugs!
Why we have not yet held the FDA accountable for so much suffering and death, I do not know! The public really needs to stand up & demand that this deception over prescription drugs comes to an end!
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
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!
In Dallas, TX 55 years ago today we lost John F. Kennedy in a tragic assassination. We pause today in the middle of this serotonin-induced holocaust, which I have come to call World War III, to honor the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy. This is a war being waged against us all via chemical warfare rather than guns. And after 3 decades of research into these serotonergic drugs I have come to firmly believe President Kennedy was murdered because of his attempt to prevent this from happening to us all which I will explain in detail as you read on.
Because this tragedy happened so long ago before many of you were born, you never had the opportunity to learn much about President Kennedy or the goals he had for our country. Here is a 5 minute YouTube video posted this morning of him speaking about his plans to put an end to this secret society working to destroy our country, our freedoms & our very lives – our modern day Trojan horse – pharmaceuticals….
John F. Kennedy, Jr
President Kennedy had a son while serving as president, John, Jr. who was only 3 when his father was assasinated.
Sadly in July of 1999 we we’re given the news that we lost his son JFK, Jr. in a plane crash just before he was to announce his run for senator in New York State against Hillary Clinton. As everyone loved him there was no question that he would have won that race.
(Now before anyone gets the idea this is a political post you are WRONG & I would advise you to continue reading in order to see all these connections & WHO all is behind the damage you have suffered because of these drugs, not only to you, but to our whole country & at this point the whole world. And as upsetting as you may find this information, whatever you do PLEASE remember that coming off too rapidly can prove to be the most dangerous thing you can do!)
But John had once made the following statement about the death of his father, “I will expose my father’s killers no matter who they are – even if I have to bring down the government.” … JFK, Jr.
John, Jr’s mother, it is rumored, thought Lyndon Johnson had something to do with her husband’s death. But who did John blame for his father’s death? He blamed George Bush, Sr., whose father worked closely with the Nazi’s, had extensive ties to Pharma & later headed the same group I always thought was behind his death, the CIA, who President Kennedy wanted to dissolve along with the Federal Reserve.
George Bush, Sr.
I do hope you noticed in the short video above that President Kennedy, like President Trump, also went after the press & had little good to say about them. And seemingly unbeknownst to most Americans JFK, Jr. & President Trump were friends. It also appears that what President Trump has been saying about going after the “Deep State” is no different than what President Kennedy was saying about going after this “secret group” behind our government, a “shadow government”.
So is President Trump working to fulfill the plan of President Kennedy as well as make good on the vow of his friend John, Jr. to bring those who killed his father to justice? It certainly appears to me that this is the case because every morning in the White House under the direction of our 45th President, the following prayer is given daily in the Oval Office:
“Rest in peace Mr. President (JFK), through your wisdom and strength, since your tragic death, Patriots have planned, installed, and by the grace of God, activated, the beam of LIGHT. We will forever remember your sacrifice. May you look down from above and continue to guide us as we ring the bell of FREEDOM and destroy those who wish to sacrifice our children, our way of life, and our world. We, the PEOPLE.”
President Kennedy’s Nephew Douglas Kennedy
While working for Fox News Douglas Kennedy did more reporting on the dangers of antidepressants than any other news reporter in the world. He understood the issues surrounding these drugs very well & worked hard to get the warning out about them. Sadly, as with all of us, family can be the most difficult to teach about these drugs, & Douglas lost a sister-in-law to a Zoloft-induced suicide, Robert Kennedy, Jr’s wife. Hopefully her children understand & as all children they retain their right to file a wrongful death suit for a parent until 2 years after they turn 21. And I just learned tonight of more of my own close family members in trouble on these drugs.
But here is one of several reports Douglas Kennedy has done on Fox which you can find more of on our YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/icfda/videos
Connections to the Battle for Truth About These Drugs
Now onto the additional connections to this battle for truth about these drugs…
For those of you who have read my book you will already see many of those connections. And I will include below one section of the book that does go into that.
Where to begin? First there was Preston Bush, George Sr.’s father, & grandfather to our latest President Bush. He was a US Senator who helped to fund both sides of WWII, & had close enough ties to Hitler, I G Farben, eugenics, population control, & the Nazi’s that according to what we now know he should have been prosecuted for high crimes. Was involved in getting the European headquarters for the CIA set up in the IG Farben pharmaceutical head office!
If you click & listen to the following link from about the 42 minute mark to the end you will find that information. And during the CIAs’ Operation Paperclip, which apparently both Preston Bush & George Sr were involved with, 1600 Nazi scientists were brought to America to continue their research!
Here is additional information on both George, Sr’s, & George, Jr’s, Pharma ties…
“After leaving the CIA in 1977, Bush was made director of Eli Lilly by none other than Dan Quayle’s father and family, who owned controlling interest in the Lilly company and the Indianapolis Star. Dan Quayle later acted as go-between for drug kingpins, gun runners, and government officials in the Iran-Contra scandals.
“The entire Bush family was large stockholders in Lilly, Abbott, Bristol, and Pfizer, etc. After Bush’s disclosure of assets in 1979, it became public that Bush’s family still had a large interest in Pfizer and substantial amounts of stock in the other aforementioned drug companies.
“In fact, Bush actively lobbied illegally both within and without the Administration as Vice President in 1981 to permit drug companies to dump more unwanted, obsolete, or, especially, domestically-banned substances on unsuspecting Third World countries.
“While Vice President, Bush continued to illegally act on behalf of pharmaceutical companies by personally going to the IRS for special tax breaks for certain drug companies (e.g. Lilly) manufacturing in Puerto Rico.
“While Vice President, Bush continued to illegally act on behalf of pharmaceutical companies by personally going to the IRS for special tax breaks for certain drug companies (e.g. Lilly) manufacturing in Puerto Rico. In 1982, Vice President Bush was personally ordered to stop lobbying the IRS on behalf of the drug companies by the U.S. Supreme Court itself.”
Apparently once George, Sr. became President he used different powers to assist his friends in the pharmaceutical industry. As Eli Lilly prepared to bring their first SSRI antidepressant to the market they needed a favor & knew who had vested interests to help them. So the current President Bush changed the laws at the FDA to allow for “Fast Track” approvals of pharmaceuticals allowing Prozac to be approved on only 5 & 6 week studies. And several years later as George, Jr became president he tacked on a policy to a bill to prevent lawsuits for damages against pharmaceuticals.
And to get the full picture behind the CIA & their interest in getting these drugs on the market after Congress banned their drug if choice for mind control you can find all that explained in the following post from that section of my book on these drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
Many across the country watched the special posted below Sunday night on the 1994 murder case of O.J. Simpson but what no one heard was what seems to always be ommitted from these cases – the meds. This piece of information that came from O.J.’s good friend, Mike Gilbert, came out in a 2006 New York Post article.
The first two sentences read: ” O.J. SIMPSONdid have an accomplice in the murders a criminal jury said he didn’t commit – it was Prozac. That’s according to Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, who says the ex-grid great was flying high on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the grisly 1994 killings.”
Ironically this murder took place the same month that my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!, hit the market. The case spanned a total of 11 months. Beginning in November 1994 and the ending October 1995. Of course I called his attorney Robert Shapiro and left the information that he needed to look for a Prozac prescription in this case because there were too many clues for me that O. J. was on the drug this could likely be another case. I also left him information that those with head injuries have more side effects which are more serious side effects than most. The latest stats I have seen indicate that 75% of football players have suffered head injuries.
Here is that full New York Post article on OJ’s case where his friend talks about the reactions OJ was having to his two prescriptions of Prozac.
November 26, 2006 – O.J. SIMPSONdid have an accomplice in the murders a criminal jury said he didn’t commit – it was Prozac. That’s according to Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, who says the ex-grid great was flying high on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the grisly 1994 killings.
“O.J. is very much out of his mind . . . [which] was complicated by the Prozac,” says Gilbert, who adds that Simpson continued wolfing down the drug to help him withstand the pressure as cops put the heat on him. He believes Simpson’s disassociative state from Prozac allowed him to murder and avoid cracking. Over the years, the drug has been blamed for sparking murderous and psychotic behavior. In the wake of Simpson’s sickening attempt to cash in with a book, “If I Did It,” and TV special, both now shelved, Gilbert fumes: “I can’t forgive him for the way he has conducted himself since [the murders]. He’s the kind of guy who, were he on the Titanic, would have taken two life preservers for himself and watched his kids drown.”
Sadly what Mike Gilbert did not understand is that the self centered attitude & lack of concern for his loved ones he described O.J. as having after starting on this antidepressant is a direct side effect of Prozac in creating a narcissistic personality. So what he is saying he cannot forgive OJ for is actually a side effect of the drug.
If you have read my book & are therefore familiar with the REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) chapter, as you watch the video below note how many indicators there are that O.J. could have experienced RBD at the time of the murders. For those unfamiliar with RBD it is the most deadly of sleep disorders where you act out in your sleep the nightmare you are having. We know that 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are taking antidepressants. We also that RBD has long been known to include both murder & suicide & 80% of those who go into RBD hurt themselves or someone else, often with sporadic memory for the incident. And because RBD has long been known as mainly a drug withdrawal state this is Why it is so critical to avoid withdrawal via a VERY, VERY GRADUAL weaning down off antidepressants & avoiding abrupt changes in dose which might trigger RBD…
Most of you may have no idea who Del Shannon is because you are too young. But for us older folks we know that next to Elvis, who was also a victim of these prescription drugs, Del was the voice of early Rock and Roll & was loved worldwide! When he was inducted into the Music Hall of Fame in 1999 it was said, “It would have been better if this had happened while he was still alive, He sure deserved it!!”
Beyond those animals being tortured in Pharma laboratories are those animals who have no choice freely prescribed prescription drugs at astronomical rates! Below is the comment on this video I posted a few days ago on the prescribing of antidepressants to animal’s. Most remain unaware that animals are prescribed far more drugs than humans. (Something those of you continuing to eat meat while working to regain your health and detox after the use of antidepressants need to ponder.)
“Before I make my comment allow me to state that I have specialized in the drugs this poor dog is being given and testifying in court cases against the drugs both to the FDA and in criminal cases involving these drugs for almost three decades. I have also been working to get them off the market with the doctor whose research was used to make them possible, yet came out against them in 1997 calling the drugs “monsters” and saying she wished she had never had anything to do with their development. I have also done media interviews with the doctor who admittedly BRIBED the approval of these drugs when he worked for Pharma who paid to bribe that approval! He too (You can find all that documentation on our website at www.drugawareness.org.)
“Was this dog abused?! Whatever the abuse was, the abuse she is suffering now from that “behavioral vet” has to be far worse than anything she may have ever had before! Putting her on multiple medications (call them what they really are – drugs!) is little different than confining her to Auschwitz!!! The abuse is now mental and emotional, on top of physical, as she goes in and out of withdrawal from powerful mind altering drugs as with this vet switching her meds – a withdrawal humans report is at least 10 times worse than heroin withdrawal!!!
“Poor innocent thing! As if she did not suffer enough abuse already! Now if someone will VERY GRADUALLY, VERY, VERY GRADUALLY (taking months, not days or weeks after a year of being drugged wean her safely down off those drugs she will begin to go outside, get rid of her anxiety (since all these drugs CAUSE or increase anxiety), not cure it, and she will become a happy, healthy, normal dog! Our website at www.drugawareness.org has an MP3 “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!) on how to wean safely & how to calculate how long someone needs to take to do so safely.
“With these drugs producing a side effect like biting…these drugs could get her euthanized. Biting is common in humans on the drugs so how much greater a reaction would it be for a dog? Years ago the President of France was sent to the hospital after being badly bitten by his pet poodle on Prozac. http://ssristories.net/archive/showce10.php?item=3103
“And to show you how bad it can really get another early case involving Prozac was that of a respected Stanford professor who nearly killed her mother by taking over 20 bites out of her and answering the door for police with dried blood down her face and all down the front of her after only two weeks on Prozac! http://www.apnewsarchive.com/1991/Daughter-Arrested-in-Biting-Attack-on-87-Year-old-Mother/id-53fcfe3a82590fcc0701b4c9e62bac96
“All antidepressants and benzodiazepines work the same upon serotonin to produce this aggressive effect. Remember Travis the TV star chimp suffering from Lymes Disease and put on Xanax? The well trained family pet went everywhere with his owners but after recently being prescribed Xanax bit off a woman’s hands and a large portion of her face before being killed by police in a effort to stop him! (2009/02/17/chimpanzee-attacks-mauls-connecticut-woman-before-being-killed-by-police.html)
“Here is a website database with about 5000 similar cases including most all school shootings: www.SSRIstories.NET. Please take a look at that list and then ask yourself how many times we as a society need to stick our hand in fire in order to realize it burns?! These drugs are a death sentence physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Just two weeks ago one of the most extensive studies I have seen demonstrated that antidepressants increase one’enhances of death by 33% and increase the rate of heart attack and stroke by 14%.
“I have seen so many humans suffer for years due to the adverse effects of these drugs that the thought of a poor helpless animal going through that kind of torture due to forced drugging just turns my stomach! If I were her I would be taking a chunk out of that “behavioral veterinarian”! Maybe someone in one of our many groups who are all trying to somehow find a way to get off of these drugs and put their life back together could take her and they could go through withdrawal together as a support system for each other. What a sad, sad state of affairs for our world!”
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!!!
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.)
