What you will see is a well put together list of violent acts in the last 20 years that are school related that will open your eyes. It will show that the problem is Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors or otherwise known as SSRI's that have been prescribed to these individuals. What is amazing is in the 20 years prior to the year 2000, events like we are seeing recently are practically non existent.
I want you to listen to Moira Dolan, MD who explains how the SSRI class of antidepressants are causing mass murders and school shootings. She talks about how in the past 20 years mass shootings have increased at the same time SSRI's have been used--in spite of the fact that stricter guns laws have been enforced during that same time period. 10 minutes:
I've seen this. This is one theory that I'm actually open to and find intriguing. It's still unresolved right now. I'd be interested to know how our rate of consumption of these drugs compares to that of other nations.
Many SSRIs supposedly have, as a possible side effect in some, increased tendencies toward violent and suicidal emotions.
Agreed. According to what I have been reading around the message boards, Lanza's uncle say's (not confirmed) he was prescribed Fanapt, which is a second generation antipsychotic medication commonly used to treat schizophrenia. It was just OK'd by the FDA in 2009.
Things like this will never be brought up. That is why they are not looking at serious solutions they are just using this to push their anti gun agenda. No shock as we knew this all along.
We also hear scream about the gun lobby but none about the pharmaceutical lobby who is drugging our children. Folks don't really care.
Well if the anti gun folks are going to ignore this med problem, the pro gun advocates are going to have to commit just as much effort and money to counter them so this can be brought to light and raise awareness. Some on the left on this thread agree that prescribing these antipsychotic meds can lead to problems.
