Yet again a mother on antidepressants kills her children.

Another day and another report of a mother killing her children and yet again antidepressants are involved. These drugs are mind altering drugs, not Smarties, and have the potential to kill.

At the risk of annoying a few medical ‘professionals’ who are either being paid by pharmaceutical companies to deny the serious side-effects of these drugs or others who are afraid to upset protocol, I am giving my opinion.

Fathers and mothers killing their spouses and their children, children killing their parents or grandparents, students bringing a gun to college to massacre their teachers and other students; THESE CRIMES RARELY HAPPEN WITHOUT THE INTERVENTION OF SSRI’S. These depressants/antidepressants can cause suicide and homicide and the drug companies are well aware of this. Whether people believe that SSRI’s caused Shane to commit murder/suicide is not an issue anymore as he’s not here to answer, but please, when a member of your family is prescribed these drugs, just be extremely careful.

Directly after one of these incidents, as happened here in Ireland, the drug company will say it was the underlying depression, but if asked the question directly, they are legally obliged to admit that their drugs can cause suicide and violence. They don’t admit this for the fun of it or the off-chance that it may possible happen!

Mother’s alleged drowning of 2 girls baffles dad…   Mar 1, 2012
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The father of two young girls allegedly drowned by their mother in a bathtub said he’s at a loss to explain what happened, although his wife was beset with anxiety and taking anti-depressants.

“It’s inexplicable,” he said. “I don’t understand what happened. She always took care of the children.” Jose Humberto Taque told The Los Angeles Times. The funeral for Lindsay, 1, and Marian, 5, was held Wednesday in East Los Angeles. Their mother, Lorna Valle, 33, is currently in jail facing two counts of murder. Taque said his wife bought the two girls teddy bears and balloons for Valentine’s Day, the day before she allegedly tried to drown them in an infant tub. Lindsay died later that day; Marian died last week. Besides anxiety, Valle suffered from headaches, burning pain in her stomach and back and tried to get help at clinics and hospitals. “She felt like she was going to die,” Taque said. “Nobody listened to her.”

She once went to the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center and waited eight hours to see a mental health counselor, Taque said. He is considering suing the hospital for negligence. The county mental health department has no records of Valle seeking treatment, said spokeswoman Kathleen Piche. Taque says he doesn’t want his wife to go to prison but to receive psychiatric help. The couple met as teenagers in Guatemala, later married and immigrated to Los Angeles. Valle was employed in a perfume shop; Taque works as a gardener. The girls will be buried in Guatemala

  1. Hi Leonie.
    Been with an impact of latest reduction withdrawals, hence my being away for a while.

    This post is a clear insight to the reality worldwide, it goes back to the Columbine Masacres in The USA too, the boys were homicidal/suicidal from Prozac and the publicity still wasnt enough to ban these drugs.

    Theres a news story of a mother in Melbourne Australia who killed her two children and the Judge did blame Efexor (snri- my medication also) for causing mental dysfunction that led to the tragedy.

    How is it that this is not enough still?.

    Its a lie isnt it, that medical professionals are unaware.
    It has to be a lie because its too frequent, too brutal, too profitable and too obvious.

    I feel for the father of the two lost children, knowing his wife did end their lives.
    I feel for the Mother, lost in guilt, confusion, self loathing and placed in an incarceration, full of non understanding and probably severe in accusation system.
    Blame!, mob mentality without facts….. she needs help.

    What damages these drugs do are beyond unacceptable, lives lost in several ways.
    It breaks my heart, it is insanity of the big sadistic bastard pHARMa.


  2. Hi D,
    Hope you’re doing ok now. pHARMa that’s good…hadn’t seen that before. Yes it’s a lie that medical professionals are unaware, for some it’s monetary but for others I don’t think they can allow themselves to believe that they have been deceived.
    The Hippocratic Oath…FIRST DO NO pHARM!!!


    1. The Hippocratic Oath, One of my Favorites!

      As administered today it says Zero about Do No Harm, nor does it even address the Concept of Do No Harm, and It would be nice if our Hit & Run Media would stop citing those assumptions without first Reading it.

      “With all this in mind, some doctors see oath-taking as little more than a pro-forma ritual with little value beyond that of upholding tradition. “The original oath is redolent of a convenant, a solemn and binding treaty,” writes Dr. David Graham in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association (12/13/00). “By contrast, many modern oaths have a bland, generalized air of ‘best wishes’ about them, being near-meaningless formalities devoid of any influence on how medicine is truly practiced.” Some physicians claim what they call the “Hypocritic Oath” should be radically modified or abandoned altogether.”

      From the Modern (1964) Oath:

      “I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.”

      (as in Where the Drug Co. Research Grants, and Govt. Monies are)


      1. Hippocratic Oath: Modern Version
        I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

        I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

        I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

        I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

        I will not be ashamed to say “I know not,” nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.

        I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

        I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

        I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

        I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

        If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

        —Written in 1964 by Louis Lasagna, Academic Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University, and used in many medical schools today.

        Thanks for that.

        “I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.” (Have doctors even read this?)
