Antidepressant Side Effects Can Linger For Years And Cause Death

The story below was posted at the request of Lisa, Lori's sister.

Suspicious Suicide of sister – Solved – IMIPRAMINE. GENERIC FOR TOFRINAL. R.I.P. Lorraine (1956-1981)

*Remember as you read this true story, it happened in a time when there were no cell phones, no computers, no TV commercials warning of suicidal thoughts. It was 1981 when suddenly horror struck you...

*Remember as you read this true story, it happened in a time when there were no cell phones, no computers, no tv commercials warning of suicidal thoughts.

It was 1981 when suddenly horror struck our home. (THIS LINK WAS MADE DECADES LATER IN 2009)
I will never forget my 25 year old Sister, and what she went through. As I watched her the last month of her life SUDDENLY change so drastically. The suffering, spinning so out of control physically, and mentally left her clueless as well.

I HOPE BY TELLING HER STORY THIS GROUP WILL GROW, AND REACH OTHER FAMILIES WHO WERE NOT ONLY ROBBED OF THEIR OWN LOVED ONE..BUT STILL TODAY ARE QUESTIONING WHY? WHAT COULD I HAVE DONE TO PREVENT IT?

EVENTUALLY...THE TRUTH WILL SURFACE FOR OTHER FAMILIES AS WELL, AND THEY TO WILL MAKE THE LINK THAT THEY DID NOT TAKE THEIR OWN LIFE, BUT DID SO BECAUSE OF THE CONCEALED SIDE EFFECTS THAT INDUCED THEM TO DO SO,THEN THEY WERE FOREVER LABELED "SUICIDE"

*MY INTENTION OF TELLING HER STORY IS NOT TO MAKE PEOPLE STOP, OR MAKE CHANGES TO ANY MEDICATIONS THAT THEY MAY BE ON CURRENTLY.

*MY INTENTION IS TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE SIDE EFFECTS THAT "WERE" CONCEALED, BUT WERE ALWAYS KNOWN BY THE MAKERS.

SOME WILL SAY.. WELL THAT WAS SO LONG AGO..NO ONE PROBABLY KNEW ABOUT THE DANGERS?
HOWEVER.... THEY DID KNOW SINCE THE INVENTION OF THE VERY FIRST ONE THAT THERE WOULD BE CASUALTIES OF LIVES LOST.... THEY DID NOT CARE. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

* The first descriptions of a drug causing suicide came in 1955. A few years later in 1958 and again in 1959 the problem was described with imipramine*

*It was not until 2004 that regulators and companies conceded that these drugs can cause a problem. ** There are now 38 drugs+

INFORMED CONSENT WAS NEVER AN OPTION FOR THE PEOPLE WHO BECAME VICTIMS. IN A WAY YOU COULD SAY THEY WERE POISONED?!

Lori’s Story

“I always knew my sister’s sudden death that was labeled suicide was
suspicious” Nothing made sense until NOW!

After almost 3 decades of being kept in the dark, I have the answer I searched for my entire life since that tragic morning I found her in her 1977 Buick with our father’s handgun in her lap. I promised her that morning I would not give up until I found t he “truth” about what really happened to her. My sister loved her family and knew we loved her. She would not of taken her life. So why did she?

Summary of my story:

My sister moved home to file for divorce in 1980. I am her younger sister Lisa, and we spent the most time together when she moved back home. I was thrilled to have the time with her. We were very close.

She was a strong, smart woman and was determined to make it on her own. She worked for the county that we lived in and was very well liked. They were shocked as everyone was to hear about her sudden death. So out of character.

The time she lived with us she was fine. Going to work taking one day at a time to rebuild her life. Until Suddenly the last month to weeks she changed.

I listened, and I watched her suddenly turn into someone I did not know. I could not figure it out. Why was she acting like this? Saying these things to me? Finding it funny to scare me?

She started to talk about death and dying, and included me in her ideas on how I could help her end her life. (ways we could try)

Some examples: She would loop a belt around her neck and ask me to pull as hard as I could until she stopped breathing, She would ask me to come in the middle of the night and put a pillow over her face to suffocate her in her sleep, she would lay still in her bed and when she heard me coming she would pretend to be dead when I shook her to wake her up… she would not move until she started to laugh hysterically, and would say “I’m just joking Lisa..I just wanted to see what you would do if I were really dead? and what it would really feel like to be dead? I wouldn’t really do it …I’m too chicken!”

Soon another sudden change came about she started to say things like “HE” is in your closet and going to get you. Will you sleep with me in my room?! Never made sense. She also would go from laughing and joking about something then it turned into anger and agitation and confusion at times.

Something else happened shortly before she took her life. She was very sick with the flu. She lost a lot of weight, she could not eat, drink, or get up out of bed she was very pale and fragile looking. I felt so bad I could not help her feel better.

She often fell asleep with her bible on her face she looked like she was searching for a answer to something that was happening inside her she did not understand.

I had to take the bible of her face when she finally was able to sit still and take a short nap. Her sleeping pattern was all off as well.

The night before she took her life I remember so clear all the details. I remember everything.. from how she kept rocking in our rocking chair we had in the living room. She would not stop. She also was talking

much faster than usual and walking much faster as well. When I asked her to stop rocking so fast she just looked at me like she couldn’t stop, or didn’t want to. It was like someone was pushing her to rock. I thought it very odd at the time but soon overlooked it because her behavior had been so altered lately that I almost was getting use to it.

Lori came into my bedroom late that night and stood in my doorway. She was talking to me.

The last thing she said was “Well I’ll see you in the morning!” and off she went down the hallway and I heard the door slam as it always did behind her. I did not know it then but that was the last time I would see her alive.

On September 22 1981 I was getting ready for school. I went into her room to borrow a shirt of hers and I quietly asked her if I could borrow it.

She did not answer. So I took it and got ready to catch the bus.

As I walked out the front door down our driveway I had to pass her car. From a distance all I could see was RED. My first thought was “here she goes again, She is trying to fool me again, and this time she used Ketchup!

Well as I got closer..I saw my sister through the car window as she lay on her side with her head on the headrest of the passenger side door. I could see her face clearly. There was blood dripping from her bottom lip onto the seat and still I was in disbelief.

Our father came out of the house broke the driver side window unlocked the door got in the car reached across her body to unlock the passenger side door ran around the car as fast as he could to then find out my sister was not moving. She was not alive. She was gone. My sister’s body lay across my fathers lap and he just kept repeating

Why?

My father’s spirit died at that moment he realized his daughter was dead.

We had no answers, there was no evidence that somebody could of helped her there was no clues left behind. So It appeared at the time “suspicious”

Decades later the truth has surfaced. Finally I was able to put it all together. I was going through my sister’s box of things I packed almost 28 years ago. I came across many things I remembered from the time… Including a medicine bottle. We knew my sister was put on a medicine to help her with stress from the divorce so it was not a surprise that I packed the bottle off her dresser.

However..the shock came to me when I typed the name of the drug into the computer just months ago.

Slowly…it all came together..and I mean all of it. From the things she said to the things she did. To the rocking in the chair to the things she was seeing that were not there ..and finally to the flu like symptoms that come with theSudden withdrawal of the medication!

The Black Box Warnings that today are on ALL antidepressant drugs says it all.

My sister was put on this drug Aug. 18 1981. She stopped taking it as many people did due to the side effects.
She was in bed with the flu which turned out to be not the flu at all but the withdrawl from this prescription drug that in the end killed my sister!

I WAS 13 YEARS OLD
LORI WAS 25

PEOPLE ASK ME WHY NOW DOES THIS MATTER?

MY ANSWER IS…BECAUSE NUMBER ONE MY SISTER IS DEAD.

NUMBER TWO I AT 13 HAD TO LIVE MY ENTIRE LIFE WITH SUSPICION ABOUT WHAT
HAD HAPPENED TO HER!

I HAD TO LIVE WITH THE NIGHTMARES, I COULD NOT WALK BY A PARKED CAR FOR
YEARS DUE TO THE FEAR OF SEEING HER INSIDE AGAIN,
I WOULD GO TO THE COMETARY FOR THE FIRST FEW YEARS RIGHT FROM SCHOOL
AND JUST SIT AND ASK..WHY..HOW..SOMETHING IS MISSING. I KNOW YOU DID
NOT DO THIS. YOU WOULD NOT DO THIS.

I WAS TORMENTED BY HER BECAUSE OF A MIND ALTERING DRUG..THAT WAS AND
STILL IS LEGAL IN THIS COUNTRY.

I COULD NOT SAY GOODBYE TO HER WHEN SHE DIED BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID TO GO
UP TO THE COFFIN DUE TO THE FACT I THOUGHT SHE WOULD JUMP UP AT ME AND
LAUGH LIKE SHE DID BEFORE.

I HAVE BEEN THROUGH HELL BECAUSE OF THE DAMAGE THIS DRUG DID TO MY
SISTER..AND TO MY FAMILY.

AND I KNOW THERE ARE OTHER FAMILIES OUT THERE STILL IN THE DARK!!
I HOPE TO FIND THEM AND LET THEM KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO THEIR
LOVED ONE IF OUR STORIES ARE SIMILAR..AND THIS RX DRUG WAS INVOLVED!

ALSO PRIOR TO THE SSRI THE CLASS OF DRUG LORI WAS ON WAS CALLED A TCA. TRICYCLIC 3 RING MAKE UP..THIS DRUG WAS THE FIRST ANTIDEPRESSANT INVENTED IN THE LATE 1950?S.

** MANY DID NOT LIKE THE DRUG DUE TO ALL THE SIDE EFFECTS/ADVERSE REACTIONS THAT CAME ALONG WITH IT.
MOST PEOPLE WHO TOOK THIS IN CLINICAL TRIALS OR STUDIES SHOWED THEY DROPPED OUT DUE TO THESE SIDE EFFECTS. NEVER GOT TO THE POINT WHERE IT WAS SUPPOSE TO TAKE EFFECT!
THAT IS WHAT MY RESEARCH SHOWED.. BUT YOU ASK ANN TRACY.

YOU MAY WANT TO ADD THIS TO LORI’S STORY SOMEWHERE IF YOU CAN:
WHEN WE TOLD HER DOCTOR SHE WAS ACTING LIKE SHE WAS ABOUT DEATH AND DYING..WE WERE TOLD NOT TO WORRY ABOUT IT THAT SHE WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING BECAUSE IT WAS NOT IN HER. SHE WOULD NOT REALLY HARM HERSELF OF ANYONE ELSE.

WELL…THAT WAS ANOTHER PIECE THAT DID NOT FIT.
THIS WAS TRUE.

**** THE DOCTOR BACK IN 1981 WHO GAVE HER THIS DRUG FOR MERE STRESS OF A DIVORCE…DID NOT KNOW..THE DRUG THEY GAVE HER WAS INDUCING HER BEHAVIOR.
THEY HAD NO IDEA..THEY WERE IN THE DARK JUST AS LORI WAS..AND US HER FAMILY WERE.

IT JUST SIMPLY LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS GOING CRAZY AND LOSING HER MIND!!
WHEN IN ACTUALITY SHE WASN’T..THE DRUG WAS INDUCING THIS REACTION!

but the one thing I wanted to make clear on the taking this drug Imipramine is that FROM START TO FINISH IT WAS ABOUT A MONTH. AUG 18 1981 SHE STARTED IT.

THEN STOPPED she told a friend I dont like how this medicine is making me feel Im not taking it anymore.
SEPT. 22 1981 SHE SHOT HERSELF IN THE HEAD AT 1AM.
FOUND AT 7AM PRONOUNCED DEAD AT 8:32AM

AND HER SUSPICIOUS SUICIDE WAS JUST RECENTLY SOLVED AS OF A FEW MONTHS AGO!
I AM OUTRAGED!

The Note she left behind said: It’s Nobody’s fault I Just Flipped!!!
then drew a smiley face.”

She often drew smiley faces when she wrote things in general. but even the smiley face did not match her normal happy ones.

PLEASE SIGN Lori’s Petition to help me find others: http://tinyurl.com/mt63tp

Part of the Warning on this drug today:
patients should be carefully supervised during the early phase of treatment with imipramine, and may require hospitalization. Prescriptions should be written for the smallest amount feasible.

Hypomanic or manic episodes may occur, Such reactions may necessitate discontinuation of the drug. If needed, imipramine may be resumed in lower dosage when these episodes are relieved.

All patients being treated with antidepressants for any indication should be monitored appropriately and observed closely for clinical worsening, suicidality, and unusual changes in behavior, especially during the initial few months of a course of drug therapy, or at times of dose changes, either increases or decreases.

The following symptoms, anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia (psychomotor 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. Although a causal link between the emergence of such symptoms and either the worsening of depression and/or the emergence of suicidal impulses has not been established, there is concern that such symptoms may represent precursors to emerging suicidality.

Consideration should be given to changing the therapeutic regimen, including possibly discontinuing the medication, in patients whose depression is persistently worse, OR who are experiencing emergent suicidality or symptoms that might be precursors to worsening depression or suicidality, especially if these symptoms are severe, abrupt in onset, or were not part of the patient’s presenting symptoms.

Families and caregivers of patients being treated with antidepressants for major depressive disorder or other indications, both psychiatric and nonpsychiatric, should be alerted about the need to monitor patients for the emergence of agitation, irritability, unusual changes in behavior, and the other symptoms described above, as well as the emergence of suicidality, and to report such symptoms immediately to health care providers. Such monitoring should include daily observation by families and caregivers.

patients should be carefully supervised during the early phase of treatment with imipramine, and may require hospitalization. Prescriptions should be written for the smallest amount feasible.

Hypomanic or manic episodes may occur, Such reactions may necessitate discontinuation of the drug. If needed, imipramine may be resumed in lower dosage when these episodes are relieved.


Former petition:

"side effects" can "mimic" MENTAL ILLNESS!

FAILURE TO WARN
FAILURE TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE LIVES LOST
FAILURE TO COME TO THE FAMILIES AND LET THEM KNOW THE TRUTH.
THIS WAS INTENTIONAL AND CRUEL AND FAMILIES ARE GOING TO BE FIGHTING BACK!

START TO FINISH TO WITHDRAWL AFTER GIVEN A ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUG TO HELP WITH THE "STRESS" OF HER DIVORCE..THE "CONCEALED" SIDE EFFECTS/WITHDRAWL DANGERS IS WHAT KILLED HER!
MY SISTER WAS GONE IN A LITTLE OVER A MONTH- SUICIDAL IDEATION..WAS "INDUCED" BY A ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUG.
AKATHISIA IS WHAT CAUSED HER TO END HER LIFE.

FAMILIES OUT THERE YOU TOO CAN HAVE YOUR ANSWERS IF OUR STORIES ARE SIMILAR.

NEXT TIME YOU HEAR A COMMERCIAL FOR ANY ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUG.. BOW YOUR HEAD AND THNK OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO SUDDENLY TURNED SUICIDAL BECAUSE THE ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGS OF NOT ONLY YESTERDAY..BUT TODAY..INDUCED SUICIDAL IDEATION INTO THEIR MINDS..AND THEY ENDED THEIR LIVES! LORI WAS JUST ONE OF MANY!

HELP ME SEEK JUSTICE FOR LORI AND THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES BECAUSE THEY DID NOT CHOOSE TO END THEIR LIVES.

RX INDUCED SUICIDE IS NOT SUICIDE.
THEY WERE DRIVEN BY A TOXIC LEGALIZED DRUG..THEY WERE NOT INFORMED OF THE DANGERS OF STARTING, STOPPING OR CHANGING THE DOSE UP OR DOWN.

FAMILIES HAVE BEEN ROBBED AND THEN KEPT IN THE DARK FOR DECADES.
NOT ONY DID WE LOSE A LOVED ONE-
NO ONE CAME FORWARD TO THE FAMILIES LEFT BEHIND WITH NO ANSWERS TO WHY?

IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW lost someone to a suspicious suicide between the years 1950 through 1980's please have them contact me now!
I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR YOUR STORY PLEASE EMAIL ME AFTER SIGNING THE PETITION AND FORWARDING IT ON.

****************************************************

A recent discovery I made just months ago about my sister's suspicious suicide in 1981 is what lead me to make this blog! I am not only saddened but I am also very angry..I am thankful however that FINALLY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS THE TRUTH HAS SURFACED!

IF your story of loss is similar to mine YOU ALSO MAY JUST HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER TO WHY? AND HOW? THIS HAPPENED TO YOUR LOVED ONE!

THERE were COUNTLESS NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WHO APPEARED TO HAVE TAKEN THEIR OWN LIFE. (my sister being one of many!)
THEY HAD BEEN BURIED AND FORGOTTEN, only to be remembered by the families who loved them..and who were left with the question Why?

My sister was mislabeled Suicide on the Police Report and other documents concerning her death.
DECADES LATER THE TRUTH HAS SURFACED and I would like to share my findings with other families.

I NEED YOUR HELP!

Dr. Ann Blake Tracy also is Author of the book Panacea or Pandora
You must get it!

Dr. Ann Blake Tracys webstie is below she agreed to put Lori's Story on because it goes back another decade that had been forgotten.

Soon many more people will come out from decades even before the 1980's as well. This is my hope....to give closure to those families
You can read more about Lori's Story at the link below:

http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcases/suspicious-suicide-of-sister

Another excellent site to scan over and get educated on is called
http://www.ssristories.com/ it is there that you will see many supporting stories of the truth and injustice many people have suffered and still are due to these Antidepressant Drugs.

These are the facts of true stories that you don't hear on tv or in the news media. The public has been left in the dark for decades.

HELP ME BY PASSING THIS SITE TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE YOU KNOW AND HAVE THEM DO THE SAME!

BE INFORMED YOU CAN TODAY!
BACK IN THE EARLIER DECADES THERE WERE NO COMPUTERS!

********WARNING! DO NOT STOP TAKING YOUR MEDICATION!*****
********WARNING! DO NOT CHANGE OR SKIP ANY DOSE!*******

My sister's life ended at the age of 25.

Back in the history of these drugs, if you look into how they were invented, and soon after marketed you will see for yourself that people were not only targets of their own circumstances at the time they were also unsuspecting people who soon turned into victims of suicide.

It was not by choice they took their lives.... this reaction was INDUCED by a LEGAL APPROVED Toxic chemical which in turn Poisoned the innocent children, and young adults up to age 25 so they say today on the warning label!
These antidepressant drugs prescribed by health care professionals we then thought in the past decades were safe, and because of the trust patients had with the professionals of our world then and today...Many people lost their lives!

My sister was going through a divorce. This made her a easy target to be one of the many "testers" of these drugs.

Supporting facts can be found in the book Happy Pills in America It just came out in 2009.

Once people like Lori were targeted by the marketing of these antiderpessant drugs..doctors were eager to try them on their patients.

Many just had a "temporary situation" (divorce etc..) but were easily lured due to the stress factors of life at that time...... soon countless numbers of the unsuspecting people, turned into patients, when the mere word of stress was turned into Depressed!

WITHOUT THE SIDE EFFECTS AND OR ADVERSE REACTIONS EXPLAINED TO THEM...I feel this was a INHUMANE "CRIMINAL ACT" that WAS DONE TO each and everyone of THEM!
With out "INFORMED" CONCENT .. people were actually "HUMAN" lab testers or you could say lab rats.
Many of them became SUICIDAL ONLY.. AFTER TAKING THIS ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUG....FAMILIES LIKE MINE WERE AT A LOSS. WE DID NOT UNDERSTAND NOT DUE TO IGNORANCE OR LACK OF UNDERSTANDING..THE FACT IS THE ANTIDPERSSANT DRUG/S DANGERS.. WERE NOT MADE PUBLIC! MANY FELL VICTIMS AND LOST THEIR LIVES.
*********************************************************
The mind altering PRESCRIPTION ANTIDEPRESSANT drug they put her on for "situational anxiety" soon tuned her suicidal!
The doctor did not know the drug he gave her for mere stress is what MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY ALTERED HER!

The dangers of these antidepressant drugs were known since they first became available in the late 1950's! (some day even earlier)

The TRUE FACT dangers of these ANTIDEPRESSANT drugs were observed from the very invention of them. (The makers knew and decided to keep quiet)
Many innocent people fell victim of the side effects never even connecting them to the antidepressant drug or drugs at the time.

This happened to countless numbers of unsuspecting people.
first started on them, but more complications came mentally to many when suddenly stopped as well!

The two events is what cost my sister's her life.

Others lost thier lives when they first started this antidepressant drug because TODAY IT IS A KNOWN FACT- "NOW MADE TO THE PUBLIC" THAT THESE Rx drugs can and often will INDUCE SUCIDAL IDEATION!

My story is just one of the many that will touch others- who have been in the dark for decades as my family was!
IT WAS A RUDE AWAKENING!

People's minds were, and still today are being altered by these Legal antidepressant substances. The debate has gone on for years..some say they are killers...some don't agree. It is a double edge sword you could say.
However..I do know both sides...I do know that people are put on them when thy do not need to be..this is called OFF LABEL USE!

"OFF LABEL USE" OF THESE DRUGS IS WHAT I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH! (may be used for other conditions then what it was approved for) for example: This drug today is given to children for bedwetting!

CAUTION:
When..Starting a prescription ANTIDEPRESSANT drug, or is changed up or down, or people who stop taking it suddenly meaning "cold turkey" is when disaster can and will strike.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF ALL THESE DANGERS!
READ ALL THE INFO ON THE MED PAPER YOU GET WITH YOUR ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGS! Don't just toss it out like many of us do. READ IT!

It is too late for many.. my sister included. (there were no computers, there were no med info papers like there are today.
There were no warnings given, there was no information given to a person or their family members of the dangers that came with either starting these drugs, and/or stopping abruptly without weaning off them properly.

This should never have to happen to someone today... Thanks to the Black Box Warnings now by law finally...the fda has listened.

I hope this blog site will grow and help me get this information out!

Maybe I had to walk a similar path (almost) so god could give me the knowledge, proof, and strength to put it all together finally after all these years!

YOU SEE .. I AM ON A SIMILAR COPY CAT DRUG TODAY.. THAT KILLED MY SISTER ALMOST 3 DECADES AGO!

YOU ASK WHY was my sister put on the drug in the first place. She must of been mentally unstable right?
WRONG!
She was "stressed" not "depressed" there is a HUGE diffrence.

I DID NOT KNOW ANY OF THIS INFORMATION.. UNTIL THE RECENT DISCOVERY I MADE ABOUT MY SISTER'S DEATH ..JUST MONTHS AGO!

THEN I RESEARCHED ALL I COULD, AND GATHERED ALL THE FACTS.

I am searching for other families so maybe I can give them closure to their tragic loss.
I am doing this in memory of my sister, but also for all the lives that were lost decades before this horror struck my family, as for all the decades that followed..it also took many lives... before these warnings were put on "ALL" of these prescription only (antidepressant drugs!)

Hopefully people will be aware of the risks they are willing to take before they agree to a rx drug for any condition a doctor may diagnose you with!

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT...TO KNOW...IT'S YOUR LIFE-IT'S YOUR BODY DON'T LET ANYONE PUSH YOU INTO TAKING ANYTHING.

YOU DECIDE..YOU GIVE "INFORMED CONCENT!"

MY SISTER DID NOT HAVE THAT CHANCE... NOR DID I DECADES LATER...THE INFORMATION WAS CONCEALED.- AND IF DOCTORS KNEW..THEY SURE DID NOT TELL THE PATIENTS.

HOWEVER..TODAY IN 2009 IT HAS COME OUT- THERE IS NO REASON PATIENTS SHOULD BE WITH HELD FROM THIS INFORMATION.

TV COMMERCIALS ADMIT THE DANGERS IF YOU LISTEN CAREFULLY....THIS DRUG MAY CAUSE SUICIDAL IDEATION IN SOME..OR A SMALL NUMBER OF PEOPLE. Let me tell you this..the number is not so small!

THINK IT OVER AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU.

THIS IS YOUR RIGHT-This is your life!

I AM CURRENTLY WEANING DOWN VERY SLOWLY.. OFF THE MEDICATION WITH THE HELP OF A PROFESSIONAL WHO KNOWS THE DANGERS OF COMING OFF THIS DRUG TOO FAST...I AM TAKING ONE DAY AT A TIME.

AT THE TIME I WAS PUT ON THIS DRUG..I WAS NOT TOLD THE DANGERS, I WAS NOT TOLD IT WAS ADDICTING, I WAS NOT TOLD ANYTHING!

PLEASE DOCTORS..DO NOT GIVE THESE DRUGS SO FREELY TO PEOPLE. LIVES HAVE BEEN LOST..LIVES HAVE BEEN DESTROYED YOU JUST NEVER HEAR ABOUT THEM.

MAKE SURE THE BENEFIT IS GREATER THAN THE RISK.. and let your patients know the risks that you are talking about are possible Suicidal ideation..that could lead to a completed "suicide" and that death is not a "situational" problem that will go away....IT IS FOREVER.

Antidepressants have been recognized as potential inducers of mania and psychosis since their introduction in the 1950s. Klein and Fink described psychosis as an adverse effect of the older tricyclic antidepressant.
