YOUNG FATHER SHOOTS SELF IN WIFE’S HOSPITAL ROOM
AFTER BIRTH OF THEIR BABY
ANTIDEPRESSANTS???? When someone commits suicide at a time you would least expect it – a time that anyone else would consider one of life’s most important and happy moments … ALWAYS ask if an antidepressant is involved. This type of suicide is NOT the cause of normal feelings of depression, but far more likely the result of a chemical reaction. Only an hour after this young mother gave birth to the couple’s baby the father shot himself in her hospital room.
How sad and tragic for this family and especially for this child who will grow up wondering why his/her father did not want to spend his life with him or her. That is the way kids think about things. This child needs answers! He/she needs to know that if his/her father was on an antidepressant the thought of that little boy or little girl going through life without their father was his worst nightmare – the last thing Michael Nobles would have wanted in his right state of mind. This would have been him acting out his worst nightmare in an antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Behavior Disorder.
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! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!
The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And 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!
