Robin Williams Had 2 Antidepressant’s In His System When He Killed Himself (Autopsy Reveals).


The mainstream media are reporting that Robin Williams had no drugs in his system when he died, but what they mean is no ‘illegal drugs’. He did have two anti-depressant’s in his system, these are legal drugs, and they can often be worse than street drugs because the (side) effects are not as well known by the public. SSRI’s do have a narcotic-like effect, and they can cause all sorts of problems, from inducing self harm, mania, akathisia, suicidal ideation, aggression, homicidal thoughts etc… Anyone on them long-term is asking for trouble…but even short term they can cause all sorts of nasty side effects….

So what were the two anti-depressant’s in his system, what doses were they? And how long was he on them? I think Robin’s family deserve to know the truth about the dangers of anti-depressant’s…

It seems that some news sites are reporting the name of one of the anti-depressant’s – Seroquel-

When authorities found Robin’s body … they saw a closed bottle of Seroquel, a drug that treats schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and depression. It was prescribed a week before he died.”

What was the other one?

What dose was he on, and how many psychiatric drugs had he been taking over the years?

This news site is reporting, both Seroquel (an A-typical anti-psychotic and mirtazapine (Remeron Zispin)

“In general, some antidepressants, especially SSRIs, can paradoxically exacerbate some peoples’ depression or anxiety or cause suicidal ideation.[55] Despite its sedating action, mirtazapine is also believed to be capable of this, and for this reason in the United States and certain other countries it carries a black box label warning of these potential effects.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quetiapine

There is an emerging controversy regarding quetiapine fatalities. The deaths of at least six U.S. military veterans who were given drug cocktails including quetiapine[31] have been attributed to its inclusion by military doctors to treat PTSD. Approximately 10,000[32] lawsuits[33][34][35][36][37] against AstraZeneca for problems ranging from slurred speech and chronic insomnia to death have been filed by individuals from civilian populations.

Some have argued that additional somatic and psychiatric symptoms associated with dopaminergic super-sensitivity, including dyskinesia and acute psychosis, are common features of withdrawal in individuals treated with neuroleptics.[48][49][50][51] This has led some to suggest that the withdrawal process might itself be psychosis-mimetic, producing psychotic-like symptoms even in previously healthy patients, indicating a possible pharmacological origin of mental illness in a yet unknown percentage of patients currently and previously treated with antipsychotics. This question is unresolved, and remains a highly controversial issue among professionals in the medical and mental health communities, as well the public.[52]

The first thing is that Robin was sober at the time of his death. The report stated that he only had four drugs in his system, two were anti-depressants and two were “caffeine compounds.”

However, the report also brought to light the fact that Robin was suffering from paranoia and apparently he …

“placed several wrist watches in a sock and gave them to someone because he was worried about their safe keeping.”

 


 

    Stein: Anti-depressants Gave Me Suicidal Thoughts

    Tonight’s Emmy Awards will feature a tribute to iconic comedian and actor Robin Williams, who recently committed suicide after a lifelong battle with depression.

    Like Williams, actor Ben Stein told CBN News he also struggled with depression and thoughts of suicide.

    It’s unclear whether Williams took anti-depressants. But Stein said those drugs played a dangerous role in his personal battle with depression. He said the closest he came to actually taking his own life were the times he was taking anti-depressants.

    “The absolute worst I’ve ever felt in my entire life was under the influence of two drugs called Thorazine and Mellaril,” he said. “That was a long, long time ago, when they were supposed to make you feel better and yet, suicidal thoughts – they had the exact opposite effect and I really came close to death,” Stein told CBN Health and Science reporter Lorie Johnson.

    And then within the last several years, a drug called Wellbutrin, which is a well-known anti-depressant was prescribed to me and it actually worked quite well for about two weeks. And then I felt an overwhelming compulsion to commit suicide and I stopped taking it and it went away,” Stein said.

    Stein said he has kept his depression and thoughts of suicide at bay through prayer, rest, and fresh air, and getting in a 12-step program.

    “Unless there’s some gigantic breakthrough I’m unaware of, I would never think of touching anti-depressants again. That being said, if they work for other people, God bless ’em,” Stein said.

        It is used as an anti-depressant, it’s a psych-drug and psychiatrists use psych drugs whatever way they please, hence why we have people killing themselves and ending up worse after psych treatments…

      Remeron is not a SSRI: “Remeron is one brand name for mirtazapine, an antidepressant and alpha-2 antagonist. It is a tetracyclic antidepressant and is different from selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs). This drug blocks specific alpha-2 receptors that subsequently increase norepinephrine and serotonin neurons in the brain. It also blocks a specific histamine receptor.”

      Seroquel é an anti-psychotic. We know that psychiatrists prescribe these cocktails.
      None of these drugs has violent behavior that leads to suicide.
      Things are still very confused about Robin’s death.

      We don’t know what was prescribed prior to these drugs.
      I can’t find the toxicology tests.
      I don’t wanna jump into conclusions.
      May Robin R.I.P.

      Too sad. If I was a family member I would try to find the truth.
      But I don’t want to speculate.

        I’m just writting because I saw opportunist people chearing to have a celebrity in the list of VIP killed by a SSRI
        For me it is so unethical that makes me angry.
        We don’t have any data to say this or that.
        We could demand, and ask for it but we are not united.
        They are murderers. Yes they are. But we have numerous cases with all the data to proove.

          Ana…

          I didn’t say he was on an SSRI in this post, I said that he was on 2 anti-depressant’s and that’s what the news is reporting about his autopsy. Yes, the ones he was on are also used for other psychiatric ‘conditions’ along with depression, but that is standard psychiatric practice. Drug cocktails, sedatives, SSRI’s, anti-psychotics, uppers, downers, they’ve been drugging people with lethal drugs for years- that’s the point I was making. Also there is the speculation of what was he prescribed over the years, what doses, what drugs, for how long? I am not being an opportunist, I am merely observing..

          Psychiatric drug categories are largely arbitrary, they prescribe anything they like to any patient and they often do, and this is part of the problem. As you say, Seroquel is supposedly an anti-psychotic, so why was Robin prescribed it for depression? Why is it licensed for psychosis, and also major depression? Aren’t they supposed to be completely different states of being? Psych drugs are basically narcotics and they all do similar things to the brain. They are not selective in any way, some will target different parts of the brain and different neurotransmitters more than others but all of them affect the whole body and brain once they are ingested, they are not as sophisticated as their (pharmaceutical marketing created) scientific sounding names. They’re all dangerous…

          You say that none of these drugs have effects that lead to suicide?
          Really?

      The Huffington Post’s conclusion (today 8th Nov 2014) could have been written in response to your remarks in that it emphasised that autopsy findings in Robin Williams case confirmed his body contained no illegal drugs, although it does mention he was being treated for major depression.

      The` connection between the marketing dominance and legal clout` of the pharmaceutical and psychiatric brotherhood in consideration of the CNS damaging, mind altering and suicide inducing effects of antidepressant and other psychoactive drugs commonly referred to in medical journals; was neither raised as an issue nor therefore seemingly understood by those who appended comments. Such apparent demonstration of media indifference does nothing to alleviate current the state of ignorance about these issues that continues to prevail in the UK.

      Too often when people choose of their own volition to withdraw from psychoactive drugs
      they are craftily and misleadingly told whether by their doctor or psychiatrist, that, ensuing psychotic reactions and consequent behavioural problems are attributable to the mental diagnosis that the patient or victim may originally have been saddled with, thus calling for more drugs. added diagnoses ad infinitum. What a racket!

      Thanks truthman for creating room for the truth to breathe and be heard.
