Prozac horror story (stress personality depression crisis anxiety)
Can it be the world is in a moral crisis?
After reading the following Prozac horror story this will no longer be
by Vickie Barker
Can it be we have become comfortably numb to the world around us? Do
we no longer have the power to ****yze information that is brought to
us? Do we no longer hope to change the dishonesty and deceit or should
we only sit back and hope that somehow the deceit will pass us by?
I am compelled to tell this story in hopes that you may take the time
to research the possibility that we are receiving misinformation
concerning the potentially deadly side effects of frequently
prescribed pharmaceutical drugs.
In 1993, I was seeking medical help for bad headaches and was not
sleeping well. The doctor felt that a drug called Prozac was the
solution. True I had been under massive stress and I had always
assumed that doctors were the last word when it came to good health.
My stress I suppose had been growing. In 1984 I had watched my
husband, my soul mate and father of our five children change into a
brutal, violent and angry alcoholic. In a period of two years this
man's personality had been totally altered. He had never been a
drinker before, but maybe because of his metabolism, the alcohol
consumed his every moment. I had to make a choice for my wellbeing and
the children's wellbeing to leave him. In 1990 he was killed in a
fishing accident in the Bering Sea.
Life seemed better, I found a good job, bought a house and had very
good medical insurance. I now wonder if good medical insurance may
just be one of the most deadly diseases we face today.
In 1993 I began to have massive headaches and was not sleeping well.
The doctors felt that I had experienced so many traumatic situations
over the past several years and I was diagnosed as depressed. They
suggested that the depression was causing the headaches and
sleeplessness. I was given a prescription for Prozac. On the fourth
day of taking the medication I came home from work as usual, walked
into the bedroom and while sitting on the bed began thinking about
getting the gun and ending it all. Fortunately, I realized that
something was not right.I was not the type that believed in suicide. I
reached for the phone instead of the gun and the Doc advised I stop
the Prozac immediately and come to the office. He prescribed a
different drug. From that point my condition continued to deteriorate.
The next few diagnoses covered such things as Chronic Pain Syndrome,
Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis. My total for pharmaceuticals was
sometimes in excess of $400 per month. By this time I was no longer
able to concentrate, had lost my balance, suffered excruciating
headaches, endured back spasms and much more.
My health continued to deteriorate and I realized I wouldn't live much
longer at that rate. I wanted off the medication. I couldn't tell what
symptoms were from the disease and what were side effects from the
drugs. Reluctantly the doctors finally agreed they would refer me to a
pain clinic. It took three months, to wean me off the drugs and I
began to return to my old self. We made a decision to move back to
Idaho. I began learning about the natural medicinal herbs and found
remarkable success in using these natural products in treating many
diseases in place of the chemical compounds I had been prescribed in
In April, 2000, my then 17-year-old daughter was having devastating
episodes and was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from
violence she witnessed as a young child. An appropriate therapist was
found in Southern Calif. and she stayed there with an aunt to receive
the needed therapy.
During that time I became acquainted with a gentleman that shared some
startling information with me. There are, in fact, several successful
treatments for cancer and there is a formula available that prevents
heart disease and stroke. These are not treatments promoted by the
medical mainstream. Further research resulted in the discovery of
scientific proof that millions are suffering and dying needlessly.
This impressed upon me to assist in further research. My 16-year-old
daughter Anny became very involved. She knew the suffering our family
felt during my years of struggle and was even more upset with the
facts she found. One upsetting fact was that the U.S. is the only
nation in the world that has not banned the use of asbestos and
bleaching with dioxins in feminine hygiene products.
During the summer of 2000 we bought a television because my son had an
accident that disabled him for a couple of months. It was shocking to
see how television had changed but even more remarkable were the
amount and kinds of advertising about pharmaceutical drugs; some of
which seem to allow young persons to diagnose themselves. Many of
these drugs list very serious side effects, but they may not list all
of the side effects.
The therapy in California was very expensive for my 17-year-old and
our funds ran out two months before she was finished. Still needing
care, she came back to Idaho and went to a doctor for her depression
and anxiety. The doctor prescribed Prozac. I watched her carefully and
was very nervous, but it seemed she hadn't reacted the same as I had
seven years before and her anxiety attacks seemed to subside. This was
The family was really happy to be together and it had been a very long
year. On January 30th of this year the girls had been in and out of
the house all day. Laughing and joking they went to visit friends in
the area. Nothing out of the ordinary. They stopped by the house
sometime between 3 and 4 in the afternoon. Both were happy and heading
down to a neighbor's house.
Two hours later, my 16-year-old walked in the front door covered with
snow. I asked, "Did the truck breakdown?" She answered, "No, I just
walked home." She brushed the snow off and headed upstairs to her
room. I called to her, "There is chicken on the counter." She
answered, "OK." I then heard her walk down the stairs and heard our
little dog yelp. Then I heard her say, "Oh, I'm sorry Valerie." She
probably stepped on her going down the stairs. Then I heard her
footsteps go back to the kitchen area. About 20 to 30 seconds later, I
heard a pop. I called to her, "Anny, what was that noise?"..No answer.
I got up and called up the stairs to her, no answer. I walked into the
kitchen expecting to see her standing there. She wasn't there. I
walked through the kitchen and opened the back door. As I stepped out
I saw my beautiful baby girl lying face up in the snow. She had blown
the back of her head off.
This was the most agonizing sight for any mother to see. Nothing made
any sense. She had just been fine. Anny had no signs of depression or
suicidal tendencies. In fact she had just the day before scheduled her
next week full of activities. No warning .. No signs.No time for a
note. It made no sense at all. We were in shock.. Then 30 minutes
before her funeral one of her friends told us that Anny had been
sneaking into her sister's Prozac for the last few days.
As with most news today, some will say, ah ha another death from a
gun. It was not a gun that killed my daughter --it was a legal drug
that is being prescribed to millions of people. Cigarette commercials
were cited as the cause of promoting smoking to children and taken off
the air. These pharmaceutical commercials are causing children to self
diagnose and with the availability of these drugs they can easily give
them a try. Prozac was advertised in the past as the "feel good" drug.
Where is the disclaimer at the end of the commercial when they list
the potential side effects? I can tell you this, the commercials do
not list potential suicidal tendencies in some persons. Where is that
potential suicidal tendency side effect listed on the bottle? Where is
that potential suicidal tendency side effect listed on the paper that
is given to us at the pharmacy? It isn't.
Anny broke a law by taking someone else's medication. Her punishment
I think that punishment was rather harsh for the crime. The real crime
is the fact that money is more important to these companies than human
life. By withholding basic information regarding side effects and
safety studies done on these products, I believe we are being mislead.
My research during this last month has given us proof that the company
manufacturing this drug has in fact known about this side effect since
at least 1978 and some say it has been known since the 1950s. When do
the people get the truth? How many suicides can be attributed to this
potential side effect? How many of these are overlooked in the data
being collected? When will we as a people say, "Either give us the
whole truth or get these adverti*****ts off the television?"
We can not bring back my baby girl, but God willing, we will be able
to spread the word that we are being misled and that people need to be
aware of what these chemicals do in our bodies so that others are not
left with this pain and frustration.
Anny contributed many hours this past eight months to help spread the
word on many health issues. Advanced Treatments Bulletin has donated a

This cannot stop here. I have had a call to action and as you realize
the misleading information we receive on a daily basis may affect your
loved ones, this may be your call to action as well. I know it will

As a special note, I have discovered just days ago that the Eli Lily
Company, makers of Prozac, now have a new drug on the market called
Sarafen. If you look closely at the commercial you will see it is
Fluoxetin Hydrocloride and is being prescribed for a pre menstrual
disorder commonly known as PMS. Fluoxetin Hydrocloride is Prozac.

Prozac horror story
What a cutting ****ysis.
"Few of us can easily surrender our belief that
society must somehow make sense. The thought
that the State has lost its mind and is punishing so
many innocent people is intolerable. And so the
evidence has to be internally denied."

Prozac horror story (depression)
I just love these kind of false arguments against Prozac in this
woman's story. Okay I guess I'll have to set the reconrd straight
again. For one, depressed people tend to be suicidal. Sometimes the
medication does not work well enough for them, they may have other
issues or maybe the therapist who gave them the Prozac thought it was a
cure-all and didn't bother with talk therapy as well, but the fact
remains that depressed people, some of whom are on Prozac, occasionally
kill themselves just like those who are not on it. It doesn't stand to
reason that Prozac caused the suicide.
If that were true then you could say that eating olives is deadly
because everyone who ate an olive in 1789 is now dead. Get my drift?
Let's have a look at the numbers, if you can find them, stating that
there is a higher occurrence of suicide amongst users of Prozac which
*takes into account* beforehand the 14% chance that all of them,
assuming they are taking it for depression, are already going to kill
themselves. Yes, 14% of all those afflicted with depression kill
themselves. Unless yu can show specifically that those on Prozac have a
higher than 14% chance of killing themselves then none of what this
lady has said holds water. Let's apply some imperical thinking here
people, it's what has made western society the success it is. Meanwhile
the rest of the world is still going around thinking powdered rhino
horn is an aphrodesiac and that raping an infant will cure you of AIDS
(that one's from south Africa and practiced by blacks there, not the
whites who ae smart enough to know it just don't work that way. I am
not joking about this and it is well do***ented), and Prozac is to
blame in every case of suicide of those who are on it and kill
themselves. And they say the dark ages ended hundreds of years ago.
Maybe her daughter had been extremely depressed before she killed
herself and it had noting to do with the Prozac. Adolescents are known
for not expressing the fact they are depressed and in fact will go to
great lengths to cover it up because their lives are about fitting in
with the peer group, all of whom have been fooled into thinking that
being anything less than happy all the time is a sin. Why was she
taking the Prozac illicitly? Um, do you think it was because she weas
depressed already and seeking some relief? Gee, maybe. If her daughter
was taking Prozac for just the last few days before she killed herself
then there is scant chance at all it was having any effect on her:
Prozac's efficacy doesn't kick in for a whole two weeks. Du-uh!
But hey, don't let reason get in the way because we of course all
know that all pharaceautical companies and doctors have no dea what
they're doing and are all part of the same evil cabal of western
medicine that has been conspiring for years to kill us, right? That's
why, since the real application of science to the art of medicine, life
spans in the industrialized (i.e. where white people live) world have
soared from 50 years to 76 years on average in the last 40 years. Oh,
but that is a complete coincidence I am sure. Lady, take your lame
pitch for money and sell it somewhere else. You may as well say
vacuuming your carpet caused your kid to kill herself because it makes
as much sense.
