ANNA NICOLE SMITH, HER SON DANIEL, & NEW BABY
First of all the hypothesis behind antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics is backwards. Serotonin is not low in depression, anxiety, etc. What is low in those conditions is the ability to break down or metabolize serotonin with the end result being elevated serotonin levels.
What “Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor” (SSRI or SNRI) means is that these antidepressants inhibit the reuptake or metabolism of serotonin, thus causing the serotonin to rise even higher, and thereby compounding the initial problem. Then when serotonin levels become too high the end result is Serotonin Syndrome – a condition which can cause death by multiple organ failure. It can be caused by only one drug that increases serotonin, but Daniel was on four medications that increase serotonin.
After Dr. Cyril Wecht, the famous forensic pathologist who is most often called in on the celebrity cases, and I were interviewed by the Associated Press on this case we had some long talks about the serious problem nationwide of so many having their serotonin levels increased and doctors prescribing so many of these serotonergic medications in combination with little to no knowledge of what negative impact and deadly consequences that can pose for so many. We both concluded that Serotonin Syndrome was indeed the cause of the death of Anna Nicole Smith’s 20 year old son, Daniel.
