      Antidepressant-Induced Violence, Suicide and Bizarre Behavior

      DO NOT go off these drugs cold turkey
      The most dangerous and most common mistake
      someone coming off the SSRI antidepressants makes
      is coming off these drugs too rapidly. Tapering
      off very, very, VERY SLOWLY--OVER MONTHS (and for
      long-term users­a year or more), NOT JUST
      WEEKS!­has proven the safest and most effective
      method of withdrawal from this type of
      medication. Thus the body is given the time it
      needs to readjust its own chemical levels.
      Patients must be warned to come very slowly off
      these drugs by shaving minuscule amounts off
      their pills each day, as opposed to cutting them
      in half or taking a pill every other day.

      Posted: 12:02 PM- BLACKSBURG, Va. - The gunman
      suspected of carrying out the Virginia Tech
      massacre that left 33 people dead was identified
      Tuesday as an English major whose creative
      writing was so disturbing that he was referred to
      the school's counseling service. News reports
      also said that he may have been taking medication for depression ...

      Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs),
      of which Prozac was the first, launched in
      December 1987. Other SSRIs are Zoloft,
      Paxil (Seroxat), Celexa, Sarafem (Prozac in a
      pink pill), Lexapro, and Luvox. These drugs are
      widely employed as first line treatment for
      depression. Other antidepressants included in
      this list are Remeron, Anafranil and the SNRIs
      Effexor, Serzone and Cymbalta as well as the
      dopamine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant
      Wellbutrin (also marketed as Zyban).

      The entire quote from Dr. Candace Pert: "I am
      alarmed at the monster that Johns Hopkins
      neuroscientist Solomon Snyder and I created when
      we discovered the simple binding assay for drug
      receptors 25 years ago. Prozac and other
      antidepressant serotonin-receptor-active
      compounds may also cause cardiovascular problems
      in some susceptible people after long-term use,
      which has become common practice despite the lack
      of safety studies. "The public is being
      misinformed about the precision of these
      selective serotonin-uptake inhibitors when the
      medical profession oversimplifies their action in
      the brain and ignores the body as if it exists
      merely to carry the head around! In short, these
      molecules of emotion regulate every aspect of our
      physiology. A new paradigm has evolved, with
      implications that life-style changes such as diet
      and exercise can offer profound, safe and natural mood elevation."

      The Michael Moore clip says: These SSRI drugs
      have 12 times the suicide rate of some of the previous antidepressants.

      [KE] It used to be when people were suicidal,
      they would just quietly go away and kill themselves.
      Now .... they take a bunch of people out with them ...

      Michael Moore obtained a copy of Dr. Tracy's
      book, "Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? - Our
      Serotonin Nightamre," at the premier of bowling
      for Columbine in Denver, CO. After learning more
      about these drugs, see his statement from the
      movie he recently appeared in with Dr. Tracy,
      Mark Taylor, Neal Bush, and others in the Gary
      Null production "The Drugging of our Children"

      The Physicians' Desk Reference lists the
      following adverse reactions to antidepressants
      among a host of other physical and
      neuropsychiatric effects: manic reaction (mania),
      emotional lability (or instability), abnormal
      thinking, alcohol abuse, hallucinations,
      hostility, lack of emotion, paranoid reaction,
      amnesia, confusion, agitation, delirum,
      delusions, hysteria, psychosis, sleep disorders,
      abnormal dreams, and discontinuation (withdrawal)
      syndrome. Adverse reactions are especially
      likely when starting or discontinuing the drug,
      increasing or lowering the dose or when switching
      from one SSRI to another SSRI. Adverse reactions
      are often diagnosed as bipolar disorder when the
      symptoms could be entirely iatrogenic (treatment
      induced). Withdrawal, especially abrupt
      withdrawal, from any of these medications can
      also cause severe neuropsychiatric and physical
      symptoms. It is important to withdraw extremely
      slowly from these drugs, usually over a period of
      a year or more, under the supervision of a
      qualified and experienced specialist.

      In addition to the adverse reactions listed in
      the Physicians' Desk Reference, the FDA published
      a Public Health Advisory on March 22, 2004 which
      states (in part): "Anxiety, agitation, panic
      attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility,
      impulsivity, akathisia (severe restlessness),
      hypomania, and mania have been reported in adult
      and pediatric patients being treated with
      antidepressants for major depressive disorder as
      well as for other indications, both psychiatric
      and nonpsychiatric." (Click Links button at
