Thanks to my son for sharing this story and video from my most favorite of all medical investigative journalists, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, from CNN! One of the most open, honest and sincerely questioning interviews I ever did on the subject of antidepressants and children was done by Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
Okay things are beginning to come out about this case … SO LET’S LOOK AT THEM….
#1 Very significant is that two years ago this soldier suffered Traumatic Brain Injury. Anyone who has had a brain injury should NEVER be given an antidepressant according to neurologist, Dr. Jay Seastrunk. The brain is far more vulnerable to seizure activity after such an injury and taking a stimulant (An ANTI-depressant or the opposite of a depressant IS A STIMULANT!). Remember that a manic psychosis is a continuous series of seizures in the brain which is basically what REM Sleep is also. (Keep that in mind as you read below about REM sleep.)
