I cannot tell you the amount of parents who have lost their children to suicide and have subsequently been prescribed ‘antidepressants’ by their family GP. What the pill is supposed to do is beyond me; un-dead the child maybe?
The tragedy of this casual prescribing is this: If a person has an adverse reaction to an antidepressant and goes on to die by suicide; the chances are that his/her family members may also have a ‘genetic predisposition’ to having an adverse reaction. Professor Healy warned me of this after Shane’s Inquest but it seems that most doctors are unaware of it.
Here’s an article in the ‘Mail Online‘ which reports on an Inquest in 2010. The article reports on the death of a young man, aged 24, and the subsequent death (2 months later) of his mother, aged 59. This young man jumped off the Humber Bridge (Lincolnshire/East Yorkshire) on his 24th birthday and two months later his mother jumped off the same bridge.
The most important sentence in the article is this “Both Mrs Brown and her son had been put on anti-depressants by their GP before they died, the inquest heard”
Did this young man and his mother have an adverse reaction to antidepressants? What good was antidepressants going to do for a grieving mother and why are doctors not aware of this genetic predisposition? Is Professor Healy the only one with this information or the only one who cares?
