I have been watching CNN cover the Las Vegas mass shooting ....... they find it most odd that the shooter had no prior record and weird that he was as old as 64. The shooter's brother is in complete shock and states that the shooter has never even hit anyone. I would be shocked if psychotropics were not involved in this one ......... another terrible tragedy caused (possibly) by Big Pharma.

Morning caperjackie, yep those phrases were the exact ones that jumped out at me too.

Yep this smells of someone swallowing you know what from the doctor... and then doing a James Holmes.

Thought for the day: Lets stand up, and let’s speak out , together. G Olsen

We have until the 14th. Feb 2018. 

URGENT REQUEST Please consider submitting  for the petition on Prescribed Drug Dependence and Withdrawal currently awaiting its third consideration at the Scottish Parliament. You don't even have to be from Scotland. By clicking on the link below you can read some of the previous submissions but be warned many of them are quite harrowing.

http://www.parliament.scot/GettingInvolved/Petitions/PE01651   

Please tell them about your problems taking and withdrawing from antidepressants and/or benzos.

Send by email to petitions@parliament.scot and quote PE01651 in the subject heading. Keep to a maximum of 3 sides of A4 and you can't name for legal reasons any doctor you have consulted. Tell them if you wish to remain anonymous. We need the numbers to help convince the committee members we are not isolated cases. You have until mid February. Thank you

None of the published articles shed light on what ssri's ... actually do or what their hazards might be. Healy 2013. 

This is so true, with anything you get on these drugs, dependance, tapering, withdrawal symptoms, side effects, just silent. And if there is something mentioned then their is a serious disconnect between what is said and reality! 

  "Every time I read of a multi-person shooting, I always presume that person had just started a SSRI or had just stopped."  Dr Mosher. Me too! 

Over two decades later, the number of antidepressant prescriptions a year is slightly more than the number of people in the Western world. Most (nine out of 10) prescriptions are for patients who faced difficulties on stopping, equating to about a tenth of the population. These patients are often advised to continue treatment because their difficulties indicate they need ongoing treatment, just as a person with diabetes needs insulin. Healy 2015

I believe the ssri era will soon stand as one of the most shameful in the history of medicine. Healy 2015

A report says he had a valium prescription from June.

I was on Seroquel from 2008-2016 because Seroquel doesn't cause akathisia (in my case) and all other drugs do.   

 

I am tapering slowly off Seroquel- got down to 393.75mg, Fall 2016 ... 3% taper still couldn't keep me from hospital. 

 

Hospital stay switched me to 300 clozapine/clozaril.

 

Summer 2017: slowly cut and weighed clozapine/clozaril from 300mg to 275mg over 3 months.

I think this would only be the tip of the iceberg.  I bet it was added to his cocktail .Perhaps they will try and keep that hush hush as it could stir an uproar . But maybe I'll be wrong.   Gut feeling is he took SNRI OR SSRI and then added the Valium.  

Was on 30mg (Lexapro) for 7-8yrs20mg for 3 months (This was my choice my Doc wanted me to drop much faster)15 mg 2week10mg 2 weeks 5 mg 1 week0 since August 24th . PPI Dexlant  30 mg taper has begun. Cutting 20% currently.  using zantac as needed.  Benzo is currently 0.10mg

MR breggin is on the right track here ,you see a doctor can never tell me were my mind has been brought to because of these drugs because its my mind and I am healing in spite of he's recommendations ,if I kept listening to him I would be up near 300 mg Effexor  and on Zyprexa .people have to wake up and protect there family's ,the medical profession think in there mind there in an altruistic vocation but the fact so many are blindly biased to drug companies is disgusting and dangerous .

I never needd more drugs ,just loads of time to rest but todays society needs you to be punching your clock card ,its all going to implode if it hasn't already .

PB u are right,  most of us if stayed compliant just end up getting drugged to death . It never stops .all they do is add and updose until you die because they don't believe the side effects or wd effects are real . Its completely nuts ,I still can't believe it .

Hi mort81 I hope your well .

Ireland has rolled the red carpet out for drug companies for many years .

cases like my own would be passed over as the extreme version in trying to get off them but how many cases of people that were on them 20 and 30 years were just up dosed to cover side affects .you see its much bigger than a rant about doctors and meds ,it boils down to information and we live in an exiting world now of free media and not having to listen to one news group that has all the power and agenda .

Its taking these drugs to nearly destroy my life before I woke up ,but I'm awake now and never again will I blindly listen to anyone ,withdrawl is horrible but in the end it will empower us all .

I was just reading on MIA that pets are getting antidepressants ,we really are living in a weird world that maybe has gotten to far rotten to come back from .

I was just fact checking re the LA shooting on Snopes ......... it appears that we have become a 'conspiracy theory' ....... I had no idea ........ very disheartening. Link is below ..... scroll down until you reach this ..........Was the shooter one of many mass shooters impacted by the side effects of psychotropic medications?

Ya Caperjackie pretty unbelievable . Makes me wonder how many other conspiracy theories are probably true.  Probably almost all of them.
