A lady in Duxbury, Massachusetts has been charged with killing her 3 kids. She then went on to attempt suicide by jumping out of a window.
The lady was apparently suffering from postpartum psychosis, which is an even more severe variation of postpartum depression. She apparently had been given treatment for that. Interestingly, she is a “labor and delivery nurse” at a local hospital.
She had shared her suffering of postpartum anxiety on Facebook in July. So I wonder if her treatment for this severe postpartum condition had included any of the horrible psychiatric drugs. These days, there is a huge chance of that. Although I could be wrong about that.
Such drugs, as psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin has spoken and written about extensively, can affect people’s judgment and behavior, and in a very negative way. However, I am not saying that, if the Duxbury mother cited above has been on antidepressants, anti-psychotics or anti-anxiety meds, that the drugs themselves are responsible for the lady’s alleged murderous behavior. But they sure have been shown to be major contributing factors in such tragedies.
As I wrote in this post about Anthony Bourdain’s and Kate Spade’s suicides, Dr. Peter Breggin has stated that “antidepressants often cause a worsening of the individual’s condition, with ‘crashing’ into depression and suicide.”
As Dr. Breggin notes,
Antidepressants are neurotoxic, that is, they harm the brain and disrupt its functions. As a result, they cause innumerable kinds of abnormal thinking and behaviors, including mania, suicide and violence. In the process, they cause detectable damage to the brain of the child or adult, and also to the fetus of pregnant mothers who take the drug (See Scientific Section 9).
The antidepressant drugs have no specific impact on depression and instead are used off label to treat everything imaginable from physical pain to anxiety and ADHD. People often experience euphoria after starting an antidepressant, but it is short-lived, leaving the individual to try one and then another antidepressant in the hope of re-experiencing this artificial, chemically induced “happiness.” This initial “feeling great” is in reality a danger sign, often signaling the start of an antidepressant-induced manic episode that can ruin lives. Antidepressant-induced mania is largely indistinguishable from spontaneous mania, and varies in intensity from mild to psychotic. It can include bizarre destructive behaviors, impulsivity, sexual acting out, callousness, grandiosity, and very bad judgment. Antisocial behavior is common. Extreme irritability can lead otherwise loving people to become hateful and violent. Loss of judgment can cause ethical people to act like criminals (See Scientific Sections 1-7).
Before I continue, as I have included in my past posts on this subject, if someone wanted to stop taking antidepressants, to prevent dangerous withdrawal symptoms see Dr. Breggin’s book on psychiatric drug withdrawal, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.
There are many examples now in which notorious killers had been found to be taking psychiatric drugs.
As I have written several times previously, Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris had been on Luvox, an SSRI anti-depressant. And the other Columbine shooter Dylan Kliebold had been taking the antidepressants Zoloft and Paxil. The two committed suicide after their shooting spree. A major study showed that antidepressants can increase the risk of suicide.
And as I also noted in an earlier post, it was not officially confirmed that Sandy Hook School shooter Adam Lanza had been on psychiatric drugs, a parents rights organization sued the state of Connecticut to release Lanza’s medical records, but the request was denied “because ‘it would cause a lot of people to stop taking their medications’.”
A large number of school shootings had been linked to the shooters having been taking psychiatric drugs, according to this article on WND.
There are further examples besides school shootings. For instance, the South Carolina church shooter, Dylan Storm Roof, was on the anti-anxiety drug Xanax and the pain killer Suboxone.
The Santa Barbara college shooter, Elliot Rodger, was on Xanax and the pain killer Vicodin.
The Aurora Colorado theater shooter James Holmes was taking the SSRI antidepressant Zoloft and the anti-anxiety drug Clonazepam.
The Germanwings Airlines co-pilot Andreas Lubitz who took down his plane and mass-murdered 144 people had been on Lorazepam, an anti-anxiety drug, as well as an antidepressant.
According to the aforementioned psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin, antidepressants have been shown to cause long-term depression and other side effects.
Based on what I have read so far, those horrible drugs such as the antidepressants, anti-psychotics and anti-anxiety meds can affect an individual’s judgments as well as one’s ability to empathize with others. And they can cause other disabling emotional issues, such as aggression, delusional thoughts and paranoid behaviors.
So, I don’t even know if the postpartum depression/psychosis-suffering Duxbury, Massachusetts lady accused of killing her 3 kids had been taking any of those psychiatric drugs. Although given how “doctors” so easily dish out such drugs like candy, it wouldn’t surprise me.
And I wonder if that Cohasset, Massachusetts guy accused of murdering his wife had been taking psychiatric drugs, which in that case may have contributed to his poor lack of judgment. He’s the one who was allegedly googling questions regarding body dismemberment and how to dispose of a body. Yech.
And I’ll bet that the consumption of those horrible psychiatric drugs has skyrocketed just in the past 3 years (yep), thanks to the STRESS that government bureaucrats have unnecessarily and criminally put people under with their Covid lockdowns, school shutdowns, face-gag suffocation mandates and “vaccines.”
So, as with the horrible “vaccines” and other Covid snake oil drugs, and their statin drugs and on and on, I’m sure that the pharmaceutical industry continues to profit from their psychiatric drugs, as do the psychiatric and psychological industries.
The pharmaceutical industry is a racket.
UPDATE (February 3, 2023): It appears that that Duxbury lady accused of murdering her 3 kids was taking psychiatric drugs. Her defense attorney is now saying that “overmedication” is a contributing factor in her behavior. According to the Boston Globe:
When she allegedly strangled her three children inside their Duxbury home last week, Lindsay Clancy was in the throes of homicidal and suicidal thoughts brought on by overmedication of drugs prescribed for mood disorders, anxiety, and psychosis, her new defense lawyer, Kevin J. Reddington, said.
“One of the major issues here is the horrific overmedication of drugs that caused homicidal ideation, suicidal ideation,” Reddington said in an extensive interview Thursday evening. “They [Lindsay and her husband Patrick] went to doctors repeatedly saying ‘Please help us.’ This was turning her into a zombie …the medications that were prescribed were over the top, absolutely over the top.”
Between October and January, Lindsay Clancy was prescribed 13 psychiatric medications in all, Reddington said.
They were: zolpidem, sold under the brand name Ambien; clonazepam, sold under the brand name Klonopin; diazepam, sold under the brand name Valium; fluoxetine, sold under the brand name Prozac; lamotrigine, sold under the brand name Lamictil; lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan; mirtazapine, sold under the brand name Remeron; quetiapine fumarate, sold under the brand name Seroquel; sertaline, sold under the brand name Zoloft, along with trazodone, hydroxyzine, amitriptyline and buspirone, he said.
Yikes. Now, to be clear, I have not been trying to suggest that the psychiatric drugs are an excuse. Anyone who has harmed another is responsible for one’s own actions. But the drugs do have a bad effect on people’s thoughts, judgment and behaviors. The pharmaceutical companies know this. But they make a lot of money off people’s troubles, so they prefer that we keep quiet about their poisons.
