Adam Lanza , what drugs was he taking ?

Check out http://www.ssristories.com/index.php

We only need to ask one simple question to determine “what could have set the newtown Adam Lanza gunman off.” That question is: What psychiatric drug was he taking or withdrawing from? Sometimes simple questions are the hardest to ask. That question would be hard for the media to ask, because after reporting the event, taking station breaks for advertisements for antidepressants and sedatives might give big media editors and producers indigestion, since their very existence depends on Big Pharma sponsorship.

That question would be hard for some politicians to ask because it might jeopardize Big Pharma campaign contributions (footnote 2). And that question might be hard for many Americans to ask because they are consuming psychiatric medications like candy.

Medication Madness: How Psychiatric Drugs Cause Violence, Suicide, and Crime

First, people taking psychiatric drugs rarely realize how much the drugs are impairing them mentally or emotionally. They often do not recognize that they've become irrational, depressed, angry, or even euphoric since beginning the medication.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-peter-breggi...

Patients on antidepressants and their families or caregivers should watch for new or worsening depression symptoms, unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. Such symptoms should be reported to the patient's healthcare provider right away, especially if they are severe or occur suddenly.

September 28, 2006: Bailey, Colorado: Duane Morrison, 53, entered Platte Canyon High School and shot and killed one girl, and sexually assaulted 6 others. Antidepressants were found in his vehicle.

March 21, 2005: Red Lake Indian Reservation, Minnesota: 16-year-old Native American Jeff Weise was under the influence of the antidepressant Prozac when he shot and killed nine people and wounding five before committing suicide.

April 10, 2001: Wahluke, Washington: 16-year-old Cory Baadsgaard took a rifle to his high school, and held 23 classmates and a teacher hostage while on a high dose of the antidepressant Effexor.

March 22, 2001: El Cajon, California: 18-year-old Jason Hoffman was on two antidepressants, Effexor and Celexa, when he opened fire at his California high school wounding five.

March 7, 2000: Williamsport, Pennsylvania: 14-year-old Elizabeth Bush was on the antidepressant Prozac when she blasted away at fellow students in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, wounding one.

May 20, 1999: Conyers, Georgia: 15-year-old T.J. Solomon was being treated with a mix of antidepressants when he opened fire on and wounded 6 of his classmates.

April 20, 1999: Columbine, Colorado: 18-year-old Eric Harris was on the antidepressant Luvox when he and his partner Dylan Klebold killed 12 classmates and a teacher and wounded 23 others before taking their own lives in the bloodiest school massacre to date. The coroner confirmed that the antidepressant was in his system through toxicology reports while Dylan Klebold’s autopsy was never made public.

April 16, 1999: Notus, Idaho: 15-year-old Shawn Cooper fired two shotgun rounds in his school narrowly missing students; he was taking a mix of antidepressants.

May 21, 1998: Springfield, Oregon: 15-year-old Kip Kinkel murdered his own parents and then proceeded to school where he opened fire on students in the cafeteria, killing two and wounding 22. Kinkel had been on Prozac.”

There has been numerous cases of individuals taking medications for psychiatric reasons with black box warnings, who end up turning suicidal or homicidal.

If this is the case with Adam Lanza, then it is the biggest tragedy of them all.

Doctors don't know the long term effects of all these medications. There are human lab rats running around right here and now as we speak. Pharmaceutical companies offer kickbacks to psychiatrists.

I too believe this is a huge part of the problem. We also need to find out what is causing all of the mental illness that these people were being treated for. I think it is childhood vaccines, chemicals and additives in our food, and parents taking drugs themselves. Take all of that and add it to our fallen society and you have this. Video games, music, tv, movies, internet - what else do kids need to be desensitized to violence as well as trained to kill?

Its sad but money is causing the problem.

Psychiatric disorders are not medical diseases. There are no lab tests, brain scans, X-rays or chemical imbalance tests that can verify any mental disorder is a physical condition. This is not to say that people do not get depressed, or that people can’t experience emotional or mental duress, but psychiatry has repackaged these emotions and behaviors as “disease” in order to sell drugs.

Its big big money , like $40,000,000 a year for the pill makers !

It's just awful.
Mental illness, or autism, whether to be grouped together. They both should not be ignored or ashamed of. Help for these families.

Was Adam Lanza the school shooter taking these drugs ?

The Physicians' Desk Reference lists the following adverse reactions (side effects) to antidepressants among a host of other physical and neuropsychiatric effects. None of these adverse reactions (side effects) is listed as Rare. They are all listed as either Frequent or as Infrequent:

Manic Reaction (Mania, e.g., Kleptomania, Pyromania, Dipsomania, Nymphomania)
Hypomania (e.g., poor judgment, over spending, impulsivity, etc.)
Abnormal Thinking
Hallucinations
Personality Disorder
Amnesia
Agitation
Psychosis
Abnormal Dreams
Emotional Lability (Or Instability)
Alcohol Abuse and/or Craving
Hostility
Paranoid Reactions
Confusion
Delusions
Sleep Disorders
Akathisia (Severe Inner Restlessness)
Discontinuation (Withdrawal) Syndrome
Impulsivity


The stupid T.V news wont ask cause they are always selling ads for those pills.

Antidepressants may increase suicidal thoughts or behaviors in some children, teenagers, and young adults, especially within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed...

Call your doctor if your thinking of killing yourself or others...

I would say the probability of Adam Lanza on some sort of prescription medication is about 100%. Just a question of which one. Maybe its about time pharmaceutical firms were a bit more honest about long term adverse drug reactions, agressive, pyschotic, mania would be a description of this individual, all adrs.

You are correct. It's just a matter of determining which drug(s) he was on not IF he was on a drug.

Blood toxicology will define which drugs were in his system, IF the Government releases that information.

The Government is busy canvassing the state to find out where the weapons used came from, as if that makes any difference. His mom was a collector of firearms and was legally purchasing same. In any case mom was killed so if she is guilty the punishment won't apply. Of course the Government loves to catch a firearms dealer on a technicality and put them out of bussiness. Focus on the weapon NOT the perpetrator.

Let's focus on what triggered the kid to go over the edge.

Medications did not cause Adam to come up with a plan to execute 27 people and himself. He was mentally ill, and had access to assault weapons and ammo, a perfect storm that ended in the ultimate tragedy. Millions and millions of people are on these medications, and yes they have side effects, but mass murder is not one of them. Stop spreading such propaganda, medications when taken properly can save lives, end of story.

People are like snowflakes almost infinite in numbers none two are the identical.

Consider the possibility that Adam Lanza was a flake of brilliant IQ and furnished with weapons and ammunition by a trusting Mom. However Mom knew she was no longer able to control Adam. Mom knew but didn't act on her feelings. Mom could have removed her guns from Adam's access, she didn't. Mom kept hopeing things would be OK in due time, we know that outcome.

Drugs do treat many but can cause fatal thoughts and murderous thoughts coupled with access to a weapon of any kind results in tragic outcomes. There are too many public mass murderers who were on drugs.

Make no mistake: there will always be weapons available of one sort or another.

Forget the drugs and physciatry. Is it time to sanction suicide like several of the Oriental or Asian cultures have? Their cultures have been around for a couple of milleniums unlike ours.

Would taking the stigma off of suicide stop these killers from killing others since they would've taken themselves out already? If you could do suicide in a prescribed manner wouldn't that be more honorable than going on a killing spree for motivation to kill yourself ie a crime so heinious you have no other option?

As a wife and mother of two Bi-Polar patients, I can shine a small bit of light on this. If someone has a chemical imbalance....and is NOT on medication, these horrible tragedies would probably be even more commonplace. The problem is that after a long period of normalcy, the medication will either need to be adjusted or changed. This is the time that seems very dangerous and unfortunately, the only thing you can do is take the Dr.'s advice and wait and see if there is improvement. Usually you can tell fairly soon if there is an improvement. Also, it would be even better if the patient could be hospitalized while trying to adjust or change meds, but insurance companies and the law make this difficult unless the patient has committed a crime, or is suicidal. A personality disorder is a completely different situation. Either way, I don't feel that enough help is out there for families dealing with these issues. Especially when the patient decides they no longer need these medications.

Sooooo how many mass murderers like Adam are NOT ON drugs?

I have no idea, do you?

It'd be interesting to do a study to determine how many non-domestic, stranger mass murders are commited by those on prescription drugs AND how many are commited by persons on no drugs at all. Forget illegal drugs and alcohol because they arn't prescribed by a healthcare professional and dosage can't be determined.
