An Absolute Classic Antidepressant Case:

There are just FAR TOO MANY of these cases to find the time to share them all with you. It is all I can do to save the cases until there is enough help to get them all posted in our database of cases at www.SSRIstories.NET. But as I can find the time to post them here or on our Facebook groups I will.
Baby Armani’s story is absolutely classic and the same scenario I have heard repeated daily for 30 years! If you can find a way to pull up the September, 1997 show I did with Geraldo called “Diet Pill Disaster” all about the diet pills Fen-Phen and Redux, which were pulled from the market that month, and their chemical cousins, the SSRI antidepressants, you will find a very similar story out of a small town in Kansas.
I got a call from my close friend, Doris, from Germany, who married an American and moved to Kansas. She had just finished reading my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?,  I had sent her a copy of. Her first words were, “We have just had one of your cases here in my small hometown. One of the nicest guys in town has just attacked his family and killed himself.”
His wife describes her husband on Zoloft only 5 days, who while watching television with her, suddenly swung his hand across her waist as his head went back and his eyes rolled back in his head. Thinking he had fallen asleep during the show and was lashing out in his sleep as he had been doing since starting the drug, she attempted to wake him. Then she realized she was bleeding and he had just stabbed her!
She immediately ran upstairs to protect their children who were both in their own rooms. He followed her up the stairs and stabbed both of their children. But his wife had jumped out the son’s two story bedroom window so she could throw a large rock through their front window to draw her husband outside away from the children. It worked. But after chasing her in the pitch black darkness he stopped and went back in the house and shot himself.
She and the children survived their wounds, but the first thing they were offered in the hospital after emergency care was Prozac. They adamantly refused and I will let you guess what the wife told them they could do with that Prozac!
Baby Armani & His Family’s Nightmare
Now back to baby Armani and his family’s nightmare in San Antonio early this month. These drugs must be very popular among the doctors in San Antonio because they have so many terrible cases like this there. Sutherland Springs, where the mass church shooting left 27 dead in the worst mass Church shooting ever, is only half and hour away. I will let you go to our database of cases to look up the rest of the cases there we have been able to get posted.
Her boyfriend was stressed at work Friday after working 6 days a week and called to have her pick him up early. At 2 that morning things were still ‘off’ with Lance Tello…
“In Tello’s bedroom later that night, the mom made a plea for her boyfriend to let her know what was going on.

“And I’m talking to him and telling him, ‘I’m sorry you’re feeling like this, but can you just talk to me?'” But he refused.

Delacruz said that Tello stood up and looked at himself in the mirror before reaching under the mattress and pulling out a gun.

“He has no emotion in his face,” she recalled about that terrifying moment. “He’s just looking at me with this evil look.”

Tello turned from the mirror, cocked his gun, and pointed it at her.

“You’re not going to shoot my baby,” she told him. But before she could push him away, the gun went off…

“Then I turn around and I see my son,” she continued. “My son is on the floor and he’s turning blue.”

Both of these cases are classic antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder  (RBD) cases which I discuss extensively in my book on these drugs. It was not until a 2003 New York Times article that I learned of Dr. Carlos Schenck’s work in documenting the link we had discussed in 1992 between the SSRI antidepressants and RBD which I was seeing so often in these cases.  I learned in the article that Dr.  Schenck  had gone back through his records and found that about 45% of the patients his sleep disorder clinic had diagnosed with RBD were on antidepressants.

Those results were high enough that he felt they should investigate that link further and launched a study to address the link directly. What they found in the study  was an astounding 86% of the patients diagnosed with this most deadly of sleep disorders where you act out nightmares in a sleep state were taking antidepressants (80% on SSRIs & 6% on the tricyclic antidepressants)!

This should not only be a Black Box Warning on these drugs but should also be headline news worldwide! And yet it has now been over a quarter of a century since I first sounded the warning in my book about this most deadly side effect and testified to the FDA about it in 2004. All while we still wait for any warning to patients or an unsuspecting public who could be put in danger at any time like these two families have been!

And we still wait for research to be done on how often this is found in abrupt or rapid withdrawal from these drugs since it has LONG been known as an a drug withdrawal state! If Dr. Schenck found 86% of the cases involve those taking an antidepressant, just how high can it be expected in withdrawal from these drugs? The question the whole world deserves an answer to!!!

ZOLOFT: Comedian Phil Hartman Tragedy – Tonight on ABC’s 20/20

Many of you are aware that I was the expert who worked with the Hartman family to gather the evidence  against Zoloft in this tragic destruction of yet another beautiful family.  After his wife, Brynn, had her Zoloft dose cut in half by her doctor  three weeks earlier she went into the deadly antidepressant induced REM Sleep Disorder & shot Phil & then shot herself after learning what she thought was a nightmare she was having was actually real.
The REM Sleep Disorder has long known as a drug withdrawal state which is why you have to be so careful to avoid withdrawal as much as possible by coming off EXTREMELY slowly & making no abrupt changes in dose or switching meds that could trigger this. REM Sleep Disorder is where you act out your nightmares  in a sleep state. And although I testified before the FDA and 2004 and shared all of the evidence with them on the potential of antidepressants to produce this deadly sleep disorder known to include both murder and suicide there has never yet been a warning issued to patients about it! Here is a link to our Facebook group addressing this most deadly of sleep disorders:
https://m.facebook.com/groups/106704639660883?group_view_referrer=profile_browser
Wednesday, the day before the the Hartman murder/suicide I spent in tiny Lyman, WY working on the case of “the nicest woman in town” according to all I spoke with. On Paxil she had shot her husband while he slept. She explained it as coming to at the top of her stairs with a “smoking gun” in her hands & her husband lying in bed with a bullet through his head. She said, “I assumed I must have done it so I walked over to the sheriff’s office & turned myself in.”
That evening I drove back down the mountain to my home in the Salt Lake area of Utah. When I woke us early the next morning the Hartman case was breaking all over the news! As details emerged all I could think of was how this was almost identical to the case I had just worked on the day before! By the following day I had heard enough to be convinced this had to be the same thing but there were two small children involved, Sean, 10. & Birgen, 6. I could not bear to think of them going through life without either of their parents & no answers! So that evening I called Brynn Hartman’s family in Minnesota. I knew they needed information ASAP for the coroner in case Brynn was in withdrawal.
Later I learned a family friend took the children to a park as it happened the day before & when asked how they were or if they needed anything. Sean said, “My mommy was going to take me to all these fun places & now she will never be able to do that.” And Birgen said, “I know I will never see my mommy or daddy again.” Children should never have to go through such things… especially without answers!
SUPPORT NEEDED NOW
I just got off the phone with my dear friend Greg Omdahl, Brynn Hartman’s brother, who was the one interviewed on this 20/20 special. I promised him that we who understand the dangers of these deadly drugs & what really happened would not only watch tonight. We would also go into the comment sections of any & all media covering it to back him up & defend him as well as Brynn, as the Pharma trolls come into the comment sections to make them out as the “bad guys” while they do their best to present antidepressants as God’s gift to the world! You can see what I posted below late last night when I became so upset after reading so many horrible comments people were making! Greg told me he immediately forwarded it to the rest of the family who were very grateful for the support & passion. So know they are watching & very appreciative for any support.
“So very sad that the truth about this case has never been made public! Dateline came close when it first happened but if people had any idea what all has been disclosed behind courtroom doors, no one would be making the degrading comments about Brynn, her brother, or anyone else other than Pfizer & their extremely deadly drug, Zoloft!
“Sean & Birgen brought the wrongful death suit, not Greg. Their Uncle Greg only handled it for them as they were too young to do that themselves. The children got every penny of the LOUSY $100, 000 settlement Pfizer paid them to get away with the murder of both Phil & Brynn!
“Toxicology indicated Brynn did NOT have cocaine in her system when she shot Phil. So forget the cocaine.
“As for alcohol all of the SSRI antidepressants can cause overwhelming cravings for alcohol.
“Of those being diagnosed with the REM Sleep Disorder which Brynn suffered to make her act out her nightmare, 86% are taking antidepressants & 80% of those hurt themselves or others, including both murder & suicide. That is a warning patients are never given while it should be headline news nationwide!”
It cut me off at that point or I would have said more!
                                                  EXAMPLE OF THE REM SLEEP DISORDER
This is the only person charged in a school shooting incident to speak out about what happened to him as he experienced the REM Sleep Disorder which caused him to take a gun to school & hold his classmates at gunpoint for 45 minutes,,,
            EXAMPLE OF THE SIDE EFFECTS OF SUICIDAL & HOMICIDAL IDEATION
A comment from a 15 year veteran describing the side effects of suicidal & homicidal ideation: “I have seen the disasters from prescription medications especially the ones we were issued to treat PTSD and other mental illnesses.
“A couple of years ago, I agreed to take Zoloft as suggested by my doctor for depression. I had denied it for years. Within 2 days I was truly suicidal. I wanted death bad. It wasn’t like the normal suicidal thoughts where I felt so depressed I would rather be dead, it was more like I wanted death like I wanted a new Ferrari! But not just for me, I wanted it for everyone! I wanted to get my friends together & thought “let’s all die together”.
“I have been confused by how this drug can make you feel this way. I certainly felt why so many commit suicide on these drugs and why it is a listed side effect! I tried to OD, but I sucked at it fortunately. I never touched another pill again”… C. C. D.
      FAR FROM ALONE
But please let everyone know this family is far from alone. All anyone needs to do is go to the database we have on the first two decades of cases at www.SSRIstories.NET to see what is happening or just watch the evening news. I gathered 10 new cases like this early this morning while doing something else & not even looking for them!
People need to go to our website www.drugawareness.org to learn all this information! Just reading the articles on the first page will give them enough information to see the problem with the drugs & the dangers in withdrawal & how to avoid that.
PLEASE support Greg tonight as he is speaking for us all in being brave enough to tell his family’s story & take all the backlash that generally comes for doing so!!! The more support he gets, the greater the chance 20/20 or other high profile shows will be willing to cover more & put an end to this drug-induced nightmare of mass killings, murder/suicides, parents & grandparents killing their own children & grandchildren, children & grandchildren killing their grandparents, veteran suicides, etc!

Antidepressants & Gun Violence? Far More Than Guns

For anyone thinking the violence induced by antidepressants is affecting only the US. & is only coming from guns, I am sharing with you this Zoloft case out of Australia.
This was not a woman but a transsexual & if someone had recognized those reactions as antidepressant side effects when he wanted to make the change from a man to a woman he could have been withdrawn from the drugs before it turned to a more toxic reaction as this shocking violent attack at a 7/11.
Be sure to share this video with all your local convenience store workers to wake them up to the dangers they face from these drugs.  And then share our database of thousands more cases like this with them if they think this is an isolated case…

My comment on 15 year old who committed suicide on Zoloft

Our website www.drugawareness.org was set up by Mark Miller who lost his 13 year old son by less than a week after starting on Zoloft. Like comedian Robin Williams he hung himself in his closet after suffering a REM Sleep Disorder where you act out nightmares including both murder & suicide. Research shows that 86% of those going into this previously rare & very deadly sleep disorder are currently taking antidepressants (mainly SSRIs).
I first began working on court cases involving these drugs in 1992. And what you need to know is there is NO safe therapeutic dose of Zoloft or ANY antidepressant!! Pharma’s own expert in a wrongful death case involving the ingestion of only two doses of his antidepressant testified to what the whole world needs to hear! (There is no way any drug rep has ever shared this info!) The following morning this mild mannered elderly man shot & killed the three people he loved the most, his wife, his visiting daughter, & infant granddaughter, before killing himself. The drug expert for the drug maker testified that the way the SSRI antidepressants work on serotonin what should be EXPECTED from them is impulsive murder or suicide! Of course, the family won that wrongful death case. (Tobin vs Glaxo) WY You can find thousands more documented cases posted at www.SSRIstories.net

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!)….
Joey, 11, Mikey, 8, and Christopher, 5
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?!

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Pre-Med Student Stabs Fellow Students, One Dead, 3 Injured

Kendrex White, 21 year old pre-med student charged with murder for stabbing death at the University of Texas, Austin
Yet another drugged up future medical professional! Cannot count how many cases like this I have investigated over the past three decades! Who knows how many the world will have to witness before they finally wake up to this medication induced nightmare! You can see all of the details on this case in the link to the news story at the bottom of this post. You will learn he was arrested before for a DUI (and hopefully you know enough about antidepressants to know they cause cravings for alcohol and you can find all that documentation here on our site or in mor detail in my book on the drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!). When he was arrested then he said he had taken two pills of Zoloft. So what is he on now? Obviously he is experiencing the side effect of “homicidal ideation” which I would refer you to the post below where I have another patient who explains the reality of what homicidal ideation was for him after only two Zoloft – the same thing this fellow said he took.
Nurses have been telling me for years that 75% of doctors and nurses are on these drugs. And I hear repeatedly from doctors whose cases I have worked that the drugging started in medical school and continues for years into their careers. Those who peddle illegal drugs on street corners are in similar positions with those selling the drugs hooked on them also. Sadly there is apparently little difference rather than the one is a “respected professional” drug pusher and the other the guy on the street corner. Is it any wonder that NPR reported several years ago that 60% of cases of violence are happening in medical establishments?
Take a look at my post from a few weeks ago to see what just two pills of Zoloft can do and ask what this guy is on now…still Zoloft or just another brand of the same antidepressant drugs so similar to PCP?

“Homicidal Ideation” Described by Patient Who Suffered

This Antidepressant-Induced Side Effect

“Only two days on Zoloft and I wanted death bad – I wanted death like I wanted a new Ferrari…

but I wanted it not just for me, but for everyone!!!”

“I am a veteran of 15 years. I have seen the disasters from prescription medications especially the ones we were issued to treat PTSD and other mental illnesses. A couple of years ago, I agreed to take Zoloft as suggested by my doctor for depression. I had denied it for years.

“Within 2 days I waas truly suicidal. I wanted death bad. It wasn’t like the normal suicidal thoughts where I felt so depressed I would rather be dead, it was more like I wanted death like I wanted a new Ferrari. But not just for me, I wanted it for everyone! I wanted to get my friends together and thought let’s all die together. I have been confused by how this drug can make you feel this way.

Two School Shootings in the News on Columbine’s 18th Anniversary

Today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, marks the 18th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and marks the day after Barry Loukitis, in one of the first school shootings in this country, was once again given 189 years for killing a teacher and two classmates in Moses Lake, WA while no mention of these drugs and the role they played in that case has ever been mentioned in his defense! And while the real guilty parties in these school shootings continue to live in plush luxury with no repercussions whatsoever to this day!

The 12 students listed below and one teacher, William “Dave” Sanders, 47, were killed during the attack on the morning of April 20, 1999. And Eric Harris and Dylan Kleebold lost their lives in either a double suicide or a murder/suicide after the attack. Today we remember all the lives that were lost that day as well as those were severely injured and those whose lives were changed forever when Eric and Dylan reacted to their antidepressants:

Cassie Bernall, 17
Steven Curnow, 14
Corey DePooter, 17
Kelly Fleming, 16
Matthew Kechter, 16
Daniel Mauser, 15
Daniel Rohrbough, 15
Rachel Scott, 17
Isaiah Shoels, 18
John Tomlin, 16
Lauren Townsend, 18
Kyle Velasquez, 16

The day this happened I was on the phone with Ruben Ortega, Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, discussing with him some local tragedies to help him to understand the impact of these drugs upon the community he served and the public as a whole. The Salt Lake Family History Library shooting had recently happened with an elderly Russian man killing two before being shot. That elderly Russian man had an experience very similar to the German Wings pilot who two years ago took a plane with 150 to their deaths as he flew it into a mountain side in the Alps. This elderly Russian man noticed that he was losing his eyesight as a result of his antidepressant so he just stopped taking it with NO IDEA what that can cause! (If you see the REM Sleep Disorder listed in the Evidence section on School Shootings you will see the reaction he had that morning on his daily walk past the Family History Library as he opened fire killing one of my dear friends, Don Thomas, whom I had warned over and over again about the danger he was in there as the Family History Library security guard.) As Chief Ortega learned more and more about how these drugs work and how they can produce psychosis and violence and are so very similar in action to a slow fuse LSD or PCP he mentioned that was the case in the recent KSL shooting as well. The woman who came into that building shooting and killing a woman who worked there and her unborn child was also on one of these drugs. He then asked me, “Do you think what is going on right now in that school shooting in Littleton, CO could be caused by these drugs as well?” I replied that I did not generally see a case where two people go off the deep end on these drugs at the same time, but if they commit suicide too, you can bet it is one of these cases.” I was to later learn that about the same time I was making that statement to Chief Ortega is when Eric and Dylan lost their lives to the suicidal ideation we now have warnings are doubled for those under the age of 25 who take these drugs.

Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine

Please watch Mark Taylor’s Fight For Columbine to see how this tragedy has never gone away for Mark and has only gotten worse for him after he filed suit against the antidepressant maker of Luvox . Luvox is the antidepressant Eric Harris was taking when he shot Mark. And before anyone starts in on we don’t have any evidence of Dylan being on anything you need to know  that a girlfriend of Dylan’s came to Mark Taylor’s mother and then spoke with me about trying to help Dylan come off his Zoloft and Paxil (the same drug found guilty in the suicide of one of the nations’ leading attorneys.

Safer Alternative: Bird Droppings vs Antidepressants

bird man

Judge Orders Man to Get Rid of Birds

Here is something to give you a chuckle in the middle of all these horrific antidepressant-induced tragedies…

While in Salt Lake City lecturing I read this article in the news today …. it is about a poor elderly immigrant who loves pigeons and spends his time caring for them. Well one of the SLC suburbs of South Jordan wants him to get rid of his birds he has had in his backyard for years. Most all of the comments are supportive of the man and his rights and upset with the city for doing something like this to him. But one comment was something I HAD to respond to so here it is – his first and then mine …. hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! 🙂 (See the original story link below)

“So if he was harboring 300 rats we should leave him alone? I think everyone who is whining about how mean the world is to this guy should do a little research. Just for fun, Google the words “Pigeon, health, and hazards” all on the same line. Did you know that the EPA, yup our liberal EPA, says that you can kill as many pigeons as you want? They are considered a “bird pest” and for good reasons all having to do with DISEASE.they are basically rats with wings. I hate to sound harsh but these are the facts. Honestly if I was in charge of a city, I would ban any private ownership of pigeons because their populations can get out of control in a hurry. I have been on jobs where we had to remove years of pigeon droppings from rooftops. It’s basically a hazmat situation where protective clothing and respirators are required. When pigeon droppings dry out they become airborne and can cause serious respiratory disease. I highly recommend the city not level their roosting place. They need to exterminate the population prior. Leave the buildings and get rid of the birds.”

MY RESPONSE: “Hazmat situation?! When anything dries out and becomes airborne it turns to dust that can cause respiratory disease. Dust does that.

“They call out hazmat teams to clean up hydrochloric acid spills(yes the same muriatic acid that is used to clean toilets and cement spills), yet people in the Salt Lake Valley voluntarily consume more of that daily than anywhere else in the world in the form of an antidepressant. (Example: fluoxetine hydrocloride [Prozac], sertraline hydrocloride [Zoloft], etc.) I would be far more concerned about these highly toxic chemicals than I would pigeon droppings!

“Now there is a solution! The City of South Jordan could check with a large pharmaceutical firm to see if they could come up with a new drug promoted to be the next new “cure all” that has pigeon droppings as an ingredient since people seem so willing to put anything in their mouths as long as the marketing tells them it is good for them. Then everyone could see value in the pigeons since sadly money seems to be our society’s mode of determining value now. They could all make money on the situation and walk away happy campers. Not so sure the patients will be such happy campers, but pigeon droppings sound safer than what they already take!”

My horrible experience with antidepressants [zoloft]

iStock_police-line-crime-scene-tape_20120323112925_640_480My horrible experience with antidepressants
Long Van Phung lphung86@yahoo.com

I was in the marines from 2005-2009 as infantry and went on two combat deployments to Iraq. I was having a rough time after my second deployment and was put on so many different antidepressants that seemed to do nothing at all. I received were empty promises of feeling better in 4-6 weeks. After a honorable discharge I began going to the Veterans Association where I was prescribed zoloft within 5 minutes of speaking with a phychitrist. It made me feel worse so I researched online and read many horror stories about zoloft. It was about 2 weeks later I told the doctor I felt worse and he told me it was the zoloft giving me more energy and making me anxious. I was working hard to get into the University of Delaware and was accepted but on September 3rd 2010 after breaking down crying I became completely focused on killing myself and surrounded by police outside the Veterans Association hospital I shot myself in the forehead point blank with a 9mm hollow point round. Although it sounds ridiculous I was able to still get out of my car and walk towards the police with the gun still in my hands (I was in total shock, just trying to wipe all the blood out of my eyes) and was tasered, and I remember face planting into the ground. It was a horrifying recovery and I’m still traumatized(I have a artificial piece of skull and severe left side weakness from the brain damage) and I had a extremely difficult experience weening off cymbalta recently after many failed attempts because the company makes it nearly impossible to get off the medication because the sizes of the doses. I had to have a friend help me by taking apart the capsules and lowering by less then a percent a day of cymbalta. Still I suffered terrible withdrawl effects. Phychitrist are basically the tools of pharmaceutical companies that repeat what pharma reps tell them (chemical imbalance, it’s like having diabetis) to get as many people as possible to take there drugs which are highly overrated in there effectiveness and underrated in the severity of withdrawl(or “discontinuation syndrome” since that sounds much more pleasant). I know I’m incredible lucky to be alive but people simply don’t understand how difficult each day is. I get agonizing headaches and I just can’t let go of what happened. I wish so badly that I had never started zoloft our trusted the Veterans Association phychitrist and the generic lines he says to get victims to start taking these terrible drugs. I don’t care much for myself but it bothers me so much that they are pushing these very powerful drugs on younger and younger children to make lifetime customers and increase profits.

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:

http://www.youtube.com/user/icfda?annotation_id=channel%3A5188b312-0-2135-95bf-47d7b87382e&feature=iv&src_vid=XH7m-YNApU4

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.

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.

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: http://store.drugawareness.org/  And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help!
