TG4 has recently televised a brilliant documentary on SSRIs (Selective Serotonin ReUptake Inhibitors) – you know, the dangerous antidepressants I’m always on about. The drugs which can cause people to kill themselves and others, and did so in my son Shane’s case with Lundbeck’s SSRI Citalopram (aka cipramil/celexa).

At this stage, Irish Psychiatry et al, who continue to deny that these drugs can cause suicide or violence, are looking pretty idiotic. I guess the pharma funded blinds go a long way to make up for ‘stupid’. Anyway, the link to the programme is here. I’m sorry to say it can only be viewed in Ireland and possibly on some iphones.

The ‘Dark Side of a Pill’ is obviously a very recent programme as it involves the recent case of the Manitoba teenager who killed his friend. The Winnipeg judge ruled that he murdered his friend because of the effects of the SSRI Prozac. Brian of AntiDepAware wrote about the case here (March 25 2014).

Considering that there are so many people consuming ‘life-saving’ (yes, that is sarcasm) pharmaceutical drugs that our wildlife are suffering because of it, be informed; watch the TG4 Programme. It just might save your life, or the life of your child. You might find it interesting to read Peter Hitchins view on SSRIs affecting our wildlife today:

“It’s sad to learn that starlings are suffering from antidepressants, apparently because they eat sewage-farm worms that have ingested the drugs from human waste. But isn’t it rather more important that so many people are still being persuaded to take these dubious, risky tablets – increasingly linked with inexplicable suicide?”

PS. I have just been informed that it’s possible to view this in the UK on an iphone and possibly on an ipad. It can also be bought here for any Rockefellers out there.

  1. This documentary film emanates from Denmark. It has plenty to say about Eli Lilly (makers of Prozac/Fluoxetine) and GSK (Paxil/Seroxat), and makes a passing reference to Pfizer (Zoloft/Sertraline). The film makes no mention of Lundbeck, makers of Citalopram/Cipramil/Celexa.
    According to UK figures, Citalopram is linked to more adult suicides than any other SSRI.
    Lundbeck’s headquarters are in Copenhagen, Denmark.


  2. Well spotted Brian. Following Shane’s inquest, Lundbeck made a statement to Irish TV saying that there there is no evidence that Citalopram causes murder or suicide, so I guess it’s our word against theirs.
    As for the Danes admitting that Lundbeck are killing people, there is always DR.DK and Peter Gøtzsche of the Cochrane collaboration who have argued just that. Not everything is rotten in Denmark! I suppose it would be like Patricia Casey and Ted Dinan (in fact Irish Psychiatry collectively) actually admitting that they shipped my son Shane, their fellow Irish citizen, down the river Liffey as pharma’s sacrificial lamb.


  3. Miralax also known by generic name polyethylene glycol can cause homicidal ideation among many adverse events. One 14 year old boy sentenced to over twenty years for shooting and killing his father on day 6 of toxic doses of Miralax prescribed by his pediatrician.


  4. Hi Leonie. I’m in L.A. and just watched this documentary last night. It was astonishing. I am associated with a group in LA exposing Psychiatric Human Rights Violations, world-wide.I think you have a lot of info on what’s going on in Ireland that we may not be privy to. And I think you will be excited to see there is quite a strong force on your side of this equation. The group is The Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights. Please check out the website. My name is Carolyn, I’m an Irish American and I’d love to help you get more exposure for the sake of your son, and get you hooked up with a powerful group who is taking effective action against such abuse and criminality.
