Microsoft word - antidepressant-caused-shootings-and-suicides-tracked.doc
Several subscribers and professionals have asked us about the effects of Anti-depressants on those who have been committing
shooting crimes and we found a group that keeps track of the effects of SSRIs (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors), as reported by the website SSRI Stories (http://ssristories.com/); they track violence related to psychiatric drugs. The site has
links to more than 60 school shooting incidents as well as other violent acts over the past 20 years. We are including some of
the incidents here but you may research thousands more on their website. It certainly bears consideration before you or your child take prescription drugs for depression, anxiety or other purposes. Please know that there are natural alternatives in most
situations that may save your life or the life of someone else. ~ HealthTalkLive.com
This website is a collection of 4,800+ news stories with the full media article available, mainly criminal in nature, that have
appeared in the media (newspapers, TV, scientific journals) or that were part of FDA testimony in either 1991, 2004 or 2006, in which antidepressants are mentioned.
This web site focuses on the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), of which Prozac (fluoxetine) was the first. Other SSRIs are Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine) (known in the UK as Seroxat), Celexa (citalopam), Lexapro (escitalopram), and
Luvox (fluvoxamine). Other newer antidepressants included in this list are Remeron (mirtazapine), Anafranil (clomipramine) and the SNRIs Effexor (venlafaxine), Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) as well as the dopamine reuptake
inhibitor antidepressant Wellbutrin (bupropion) (also marketed as Zyban).
Although SSRI Stories only features cases which have appeared in the media, starting March 2012 there will be a Website:
http://www.rxisk.org/ which will allow personal stories to appear in a different Website from SSRI Stories. This is the work of

As Dr. David Healy notes in his article “Welcome to Data Based Medicine”, ‘Third: This site will in due course have a category
of posts for people who have been through the system, people who have had partners, parents, children or friends injured by treatments and who have found themselves trapped in a Kafkaesque world when they have sought help from doctors,
regulators or others who seem to be there to help us. These stories are aimed at highlighting the lunacy of the current system but also showing how someone who is determined can change everything. These stories will likely migrate
to:http://www.rxisk.org/ when it is up and running.’ Sign up now and be prepared to tell your story.
On December 15, 2010, PLoS Medicine released a study which showed that, in regard to prescription medications and
violence, the FDA had received the most reports of violence from the SSRI & SNRI antidepressants (except for Chantix, the smoking cessation drug.) The study listed Prozac as the number 2 drug for violence, and Paxil as number 3.
Antidepressants have been recognized as potential inducers of mania and psychosis since their introduction in the 1950s. Klein
and Fink1 described psychosis as an adverse effect of the older tricyclic antidepressant imipramine. Since the introduction of Prozac in December, 1987, there has been a massive increase in the number of people taking antidepressants. Preda and
Bowers2 reported that over 200,000 people a year in the U.S. enter a hospital with antidepressant-associated mania and/or
psychosis. The subsequent harm from this prescribing can be seen in these 4,800+ stories.
Before the introduction of Prozac in Dec. 1987, less than one percent of the population in the U.S. was diagnosed with bipolar disorder – also known as manic depression. Now, with the widespread prescribing of antidepressants, the percent of the
population in the United States that is diagnosed with bipolar disorder (swing from depression to mania or vice versa) has
risen to 4.4% . This is almost one out of every 23 people in the U.S.
