Drug Rep Gwen Olsen


Recommended Posts

WARNING THIS WILL BE LONG
Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey.

Gwen is a friend.  Her family suffered a horrible tragedy due to these drugs.  That is often the turning point or *awakening* that forces one / us to see snippets of what's been going on and that we've been taking part in unknowingly.  I have horrible flashbacks to my time working in psychiatry as a pharma rep.  It is often ex reps who are the most vocal.  

 

After the abrupt crash of reality, the corruption and collusion slowly become evident in medicine, government, everywhere.  There is nobody truly protecting people.

 

Profit rules. Disease is extremely profitable, especially cancer and *mental health*.  Detection and screenings do not equate to prevention.  Vaccines, chemotherapy, mammograms....all carry significant risk.

I encourage others to try to see the whole picture.  I'm sure I don't see the whole thing, but I recognize the patterns.  Involved in another government cover up now. The town I moved to in Florida is adjacent to Patrick AFB which has been allowing very carcinogenic chemicals to enter the water supply.  The government covered it up for decades and the cancer rates have been astronomical.  

 

 

 

 

Pristiq tapered over 8 months ending Spring 2011 after 18 years of polydrugging that began w/Zoloft for fatigue/general malaise (not mood). CURRENT: 1mg Klonopin qhs (SSRI bruxism), 75mg trazodone qhs, various hormonesLitigation for 11 years for Work-related injury, settled 2004. Involuntary medical retirement in 2001 (age 39). 2012 - brain MRI showing diffuse, chronic cerebrovascular damage/demyelination possibly vasculitis/cerebritis. Dx w/autoimmune polyendocrine failure.<p>2013 - Dx w/CNS Sjogren's Lupus (FANA antibodies first appeared in 1997 but missed by doc).
