Watch The Full Panorama Documentary ‘A Prescription For Murder’ Here…


Is it possible that a pill prescribed by your doctor can turn you into a killer? Over 40 million prescriptions for SSRI anti-depressants were handed out by doctors last year in the UK. Panorama reveals the devastating side effects on a tiny minority that can lead to psychosis, violence, possibly even murder. With exclusive access to psychiatric reports, court footage and drug company data, reporter Shelley Jofre investigates the mass killings at the 2012 midnight premiere of a Batman movie in Aurora, Colorado. Twenty-four-year-old PhD student James Holmes, who had no record of violence or gun ownership, murdered 12 and injured 70. Did the SSRI anti-depressant he had been prescribed play a part in the killings? Panorama has uncovered other cases of murder and extreme violence which could be linked to psychosis developed after the taking of SSRIs – including a father who strangled his 11-year-old son. Panorama asks if enough is known about this rare side effect, and if doctors are unwittingly prescribing what could be a prescription for murder.

The David Carmichael Story..


Anyone who takes psychiatric drugs like Paxil/Seroxat is playing Russian Roulette with their lives, and the lives of their loved ones. I could have ended up in a similar position to David, anyone on Seroxat/Paxil could. Bravo to David for speaking about his harrowing experience.

The David Carmichael Story: Violence and Antidepressant Roulette

 

He never could have seen this coming. David was struggling through a stressful period in

his professional life, and took his doctor’s recommendation to take the edge off of his anxiety with a prescription antidepressant.

As others observed that he was “getting better,” he was actually descending into a private chemically-induced hell of delusion.

The price he paid for his psychiatric treatment will haunt him and everyone he loves, for the rest of his life.

Listen to his story and understand why the prescribing of psychotropics must be halted until and if we can better understand who may fall victim to this Russian Roulette of violence.

Seroxat/Paxil and Violence…


I developed suicidal/aggressive/ tendencies when I was on Seroxat (Paxil) and I also became severely agitated from akathisa (another horrible Seroxat side effect)- and there have been multitudes of similar experiences of Seroxat horror stories documented for over two decades now. Seroxat can literally push you over the edge, this drug should have been banned a long time ago, or at the very least severely restricted for new users… but GSK can’t let anything get in the way of their profit margins can they? For them profit is the bottom line. Ethics and human life are merely inconveniences…

This recently uploaded video of David Carmichael’s experience of Paxil should serve as a warning of just how dangerous drugs like Seroxat can be.

What is Prescripticide?


What is prescripticide?


pill antidepressant SSRI medication

A newly created concept is gathering momentum on social media.

‘Prescripticide’ has been officially embraced by the internet, with the creation of a new Wikipedia page that defines it as a death caused by an adverse reaction to a prescription drug.

The word was coined in December 2015 by David Carmichael, who killed his son over a decade ago while experiencing an SSRI-induced psychosis.

Carmichael was charged with first-degree murder in the US, but after multiple psychiatric assessments the court found him not criminally responsible for his son’s death.

In an article published by web-based medical research group Rxisk, which advocates for improved drug education, Carmichael describes his experience after increasing his antidepressant dosage.

“Over a three-week period, I changed completely from being a loving, caring and nurturing father of two beautiful children to taking the life of my beloved son Ian, in a calm, organised state of delirium-psychosis,” says Carmichael.

Alongside other stories of alleged antidepressant-related homicides, Carmichael’s account is leading healthcare practitioners and mental health advocates to question whether SSRIs and other prescription drugs carry side effects that are more dangerous than previously thought.

The Wikipedia page also cites Danish medical researcher Dr Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, who has stated that prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

Dr Gotzsche has written extensively against the widespread use of antidepressants and ‘Big Pharma’.

David Carmichael : Paxil (Seroxat) Prescripticide


David’s story is harrowing but needs to be heard.

What a brave and courageous man he is for writing this.

My heart goes out to him, and his family.

Anyone on Seroxat/Paxil (or other SSRI’s) can commit violent acts.

It’s Russian Roulette when you take an SSRI, you can become hostile, de-personalized, can suffer drastic personality changes, and even be driven to self harm, suicide, and violence.

I know because I’ve been there.

Seroxat/Paxil is an extremely dangerous drug. Some of the side effects I experienced on Seroxat included very vivid violent dreams  which were extremely disturbing. I became hostile, and aggressive too, and often dreams could merge with reality.

Kudos to David for speaking out about this extremely difficult subject.

David Carmichael, Paxil Side Effect Dangers And Vanessa’s Law


picture-262

David Carmichael was prescribed Paxil in 2003 with devastating consequences.

It is well established by now, that Paxil (and other SSRI’s) can cause severe reactions such as mania, psychosis, akathisia (inner restlessness/turmoil), violence, suicide, homicide, and aggression etc. (see here for mountains of evidence of these side effects).

However, in 2003, when David was prescribed Paxi (Seroxat), little was known about these now well established side effects. If David had been warned, things could have been a whole lot different. Unfortunately he was not. David, like many others (including myself) were given a pill without informed consent as to the side effects which it could induce. GSK should be held accountable for this tragedy, and for many others. Paxil is still being prescribed, because GSK still makes a profit on it. This is unacceptable.

You can read about David, and his Paxil story on his website (see here). It makes for very harrowing reading. However, despite the awful tragedy which Paxil (and GSK’s failure to warn about the side effects of Paxil) brought upon David and his family, David has been campaigning for better warnings on anti-depressants for years now. David refuses to become just a Paxil victim, and he has turned his Paxil tragedy into one of hope. One particularly powerful campaign which David has been actively involved in is the implementation of Vanessa’s law in Canada. You can read about Vanessa’s Law here.

I wish David well, and I hope that he can find justice for himself and his family.

Vanessa’s Law to protect Canadians from unsafe drugs

From Canadian Press (published on Huffington Post):

OTTAWA – The Conservative government has introduced new legislation aimed at protecting consumers from unsafe medications and reducing adverse drug reactions.

The Protecting Canadians from Unsafe Drugs Act is known as Vanessa’s Law in honour of the late daughter of Conservative MP Terence Young.

The 15-year-old died of a heart attack 13 years ago while on a prescription drug for a stomach ailment. The medication was later deemed unsafe and pulled from the market.

Young, MP for Oakville, has been fighting ever since for a more stringent Canadian drug-monitoring system.

Under the new legislation, the government now has the power to initiate mandatory recalls for unsafe drugs and to demand reports from health-care institutions on adverse drug reactions.

The bill also allows the government to impose tough new penalties for unsafe products, including jail time and new fines of up to $5 million a day instead of the current $5,000.

In July 2003, at the age of 45, I experienced my first major depression. I started taking 40mg. of the antidepressant Paxil a day. By September, I was feeling mentally healthy again. After forgetting to take Paxil for a few days in February 2004, I weaned myself off the drug. I started to feel depressed again in July. My symptoms included insomnia, increased anxiety, rapid weight loss, low concentration and a lack of energy. I put myself back on 40mg. of Paxil a day.

A few days after I started taking Paxil again, I was having suicidal thoughts. I thought I could get rid of the thoughts and recover more quickly if I increased my dosage. On July 17, I started taking 60mg. of Paxil a day. Three days later, I planned my suicide. I went from planning my suicide to planning a murder-suicide to planning a murder. On July 31, 2004, I killed my 11-year-old son Ian. I was charged with first-degree murder.

In November 2004, I was diagnosed by one of the leading forensic psychiatrists in the world as being in a “major depression” with “psychotic episodes” when I killed Ian. In May 2005, his assessment was supported by another leading forensic psychiatrist, who was hired by the crown attorney. On September 30, 2005, I was judged to be “not criminally responsible on account of a mental disorder” for murdering Ian. I received an absolute discharge from the Ontario Review Board on December 4, 2009.

I hope some of the information posted on this website can help prevent suicidal and homicidal tragedies.
