Antidepressants Top List of Most Violence-Inducing Drugs
It’s certainly worth paying heed to drug interactions such as violence and homicidal leanings, both as a patient and as a concerned parent, family member or friend. According to a 2010 study published in the journal PLoS One, half of the top 10 drugs disproportionately linked with violent behavior are antidepressants:

1.Varenicline (Chantix): The number one violence-inducing drug on the list, this anti-smoking medication is 18 times more likely to be linked with violence when compared to other drugs
2.Fluoxetine (Prozac): This drug was the first well-known SSRI antidepressant
3.Paroxetine (Paxil): Another SSRI antidepressant, Paxil is also linked with severe withdrawal symptoms and a risk of birth defects
4.Amphetamines:(Various): Used to treat ADHD
5.Mefoquine (Lariam): A treatment for malaria which is often linked with reports of strange behavior
6.Atomoxetine (Strattera): An ADHD drug that affects the neurotransmitter noradrenaline
7.Triazolam (Halcion): This potentially addictive drug is used to treat insomnia
8.Fluvoxamine (Luvox): Another SSRI antidepressant
9.Venlafaxine (Effexor): An antidepressant also used to treat anxiety disorders
10.Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq): An antidepressant which affects both serotonin and noradrenaline

We only need to ask one simple question to determine “what could have set the teenage 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

Autism had nothing to do with the violence, but what about the psychiatric drugs ?

See these sites http://healthimpactnews.com/2012/increase-in-...

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...

Not only may the drugs meant to cure your depression actually drive you to suicide, but these dangerous and addictive drugs may be behind the Columbine shooting—and dozens of others. Ask the FDA to warn the public that SSRIs may make people commit violence against others! Our new Action Alert has the details.

In another article in this issue, we told you about the black box notice on antidepressant drugs warning that young people may want to kill themselves when first taking these FDA-approved medications. But there is also a shocking risk of increased violence to others, as noted by medical journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Whitaker.

A review of FDA’s Adverse Event reports “identified 31 drugs responsible for most of the FDA case reports of violence toward others, with antidepressants near the top of that list.” Time magazine posted an article entitled “Top Ten Legal Drugs Linked to Violence” in which five of the top ten are SSRI antidepressants: fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), fluvoxamine (Luvox), venlafaxine (Effexor), and desvenlafaxine (Pristiq).

Julian Whitaker, MD, founder of the Whitaker Wellness Institute and a thirty-year practitioner of alternative medicine, notes that the FDA does not include violent behavior on its black box warning labels because they are “blinded by their incestuous relationship with the pharmaceutical industry.”

Connecticut school shooting: Troubled life of Adam Lanza, a fiercely intelligent killer
Adam Lanza was reclusive, painfully shy and intensely bright. He also lived in a house full of guns.

Was he taking those pills ?

The website SSRIstories.com has compiled a jaw-dropping list of school shootings, spree killings, murder attempts, and other violent actions, together with the particular antidepressant medication the perpetrator was using (or had just withdrawn from). In 2006, the peer-reviewed journal PloS Medicine published an article outlining a series of medico-legal cases involving antidepressants and violence. They note that many of the court cases appear not to have considered the possibility that a prescription drug may induce violence.

Please research PANDAS/ PANS Syndrome. These may not be mental illnesses at all, but an undetected/untreated infection caused by anything from Strep to Lymes. Drs in the US are not educated to diagnose this and the kids who have it are misdiagnosed with a mental disorder and treated with psychotropic medications which exacerbates the illness. Chances are good all these kids need is a strong dose of antibiotics. Look it up!!

I am a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I am stunned by the amount of comments that suggest that "the psych meds must be responsible". There is no evidence of any psychotropic medications causing violence, and especially at this level.
Obviously, this man (20 years old) needed help and without knowing anything about his psychiatric history the only question that i have is the same question I had when the movie theater shooting occurred. How can an individual obtain a semi-automatic weapon so easily.
In terms of medications, it sure sounds like this individual needed them (as well as therapy). However, these things will still happen.
Taking a stand against the treatment of mental illness with or without medication is pathetic.

PX drugs, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.
They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.
They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.
They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.
Impeach Obama.

The only troll here is the one from FL who spams every forum with their anti drugs rants.

People commit crimes. People commit murder. The one to blame and only blame is that one single person who commited the act. If someone has murder on their mind, there's multiple ways to commit it, it could had been a bomb. People who assume a murderer was on psych drugs is doing no one any good nd stereo typing all those who really need that medication. For all we know they were on street drugs, which oftn can cause symptoms od ASD's.

When the medication I was recklessly perscribed made me bug out all the broken glass, busted furniture, threats of suicide, police cars and a ride to the psychiatric hospital was all evidence of psychotropic medications causing violence I will ever need.

Of course the hospital CPEP and my "Doctor" were very good at blame the victim and pushed more drugs on me.

Perhaps you should read the PDR ?

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

Doc Dan,
I am an adult now, but as a teenager I was prescribed many different antidepressants. I thought about killing, hurting torturing people all the time while being medicated. I also had to talk myself out of commiting suicide almost daily. I never had those feeling before taking antidepressants and I have never had those feeling after I stopped taking them. They are very dangerous drugs for some people, especially young people. I thank God that I never acted on any of those awful thoughts. I am a very non violent person, I don't even eat meat or kill bugs because I do not like to hurt other living things. If these drugs made me feel this way I could just imagine what they could do to people with more violent tendencies. Also most patients will not tell their psychatrist about suicidal and homocidal thoughts because they know that by law they have to report it.
I also had a best friend that began medication about the same time that I did. Except she continued to be overmedicated into adulthood. She ended up stabbing her mother in the back. I knew her before medication and she was not crazy, she was pretty normal, just a little depressed. She got really weird aftre the meds, super clingy, hiding in closets for hours, and of coarse stabbing her mom. The weirder she became the moremeds they wouldgive her and she would just kept getting worse. I think these meds help some people, but I think they can do a lot more harm than good in a lot of cases. Especially if you have bad psychiatrist.

Hum, go get an antipcyhotic injection and come back and talk to me about what would you kill for. Certainly I would kill not to get one of those ever again in my life.

The New York Magazine which published the info about being on psych meds was promptly retracted "the claim that Lanza was on Fanapt (which is used for what? schizophrenia) was allegedly made not by Lanza’s real uncle, but by an Internet troll who reportedly inserts himself into every mass shooting story by posing as a family member of the killer."

Obviously the media doesn't confirm their sourses before print, and then you get others like above spreading known non facts. Those are the ones who should go to prison.
