PLEASE, let me tell you about my son, Aaron David Todovich
6/12/78-11/8/2003. You may have heard his story before on one or more
of these websites but I will never tire of repeating it because
SOMETHING has to be done.
My beautiful talented, college graduate son was "diagnosed" with
depression at age 15. During the course of ten years and at least four
different psychiatrists, he was the subject of every experimental drug
prescribed for obsessive compulsive disorder and depression. His list of
poison includes but is not limited to:
and at some point Ritalin
I KNOW THERE WERE MORE but I don't recall all them. His so called
psychiatrist(s) did little more than see him for ten minutes a week
and/or month and write that prescription. In fact when he was admitted
to the hospital while taking the last SSRI - Effexor, he was suffering
from dysfunctioning liver, anemia and enlarged heart (all side effects
of Effexor especially when it is NOT MONITORED). This was the not the
first detremental physical effects he had suffered. He had admitted
himself to mental ward of a local hospital about 6 months before because
he lost 60 lbs in about a month and a half (he was starving himself to
death). He knew he was in trouble and on the night he admitted himself
he had tried to reach his psychiatrist who told him he was sorry, he was
tied up but wished him luck. LUCK, luck would have been about 10 years
before if he had never been introduced to any of these poisons.
At any rate, the whole time he was in the hospital for the last time,
the psychiatrist who had prescribed the Effexor did not even bother to
make an appearance. The doctors took him off of Effexor as soon as he
was admitted, but would never say this was the cause of his illness. I
know now this was probably the nail in the coffin so to speak as he
should have been tapered off of these horrible poisons but when he came
home he told me he was finished with all the medicines. From there the
decline was rapid and he talked of suicide like we talk about going to
work each day. He was trying to find peace from the horrible "shock"
his brain had suffered.
Yes, there are many horror stories about these "wonder" drugs. WILL
THEY EVER STOP OR ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE TO FINANCE THE BIG
PHARMACEUTICAL PERPETRATED MURDERS WHICH ARE HAPPENING EVERY DAY.
Please contact me, I will be glad to help in anyway I can.
