Was Ex-LAPD Cop Christopher Dorner On Antidepressants?

The EX-LAPD suspect who is suspected in killing four people the past two weeks including two police officers indicated that he was very depressed. He broadcast this in his manifesto to Law Enforcement which has been widely distributed in the media. If he was depressed and saw a medical doctor or psychiatrist then it is odds on he was given an SSRI antidepressant like Prozac, Paxil, Effexor or some similar psychotropic drug.

It is widely known that antidepressant can and will cause further depression and if a patient withdraws quickly off these drugs then the withdrawal alone can cause violent behavior. You can read the book Prozac Backlash by Joseph Glenmullen. These violent withdrawal effects and side effects are well known. You can also read books by Dr. David Healy or Dr. Peter Breggin. It has been noted that the Columbine School massacre killers were on Luvox, and a side effect is grandiose ideas of destruction, which those killers had. Not sure if Christopher Dorner was on an antidepressant or not, but he certainly indicated he was depressed. Unfortunately, the medical profession and especially the psychiatric profession adores antidepressants and ignores their side effects. It seems very likely he was on some kind of pharmaceutical drug.

We may never know if he was on any of these antidepressants, as there will likely not be a trial if he is indeed deceased. They may never do a toxicology report and may not be able to, but his medical history should be known. It certainly helps the public's protection to know if antidepressants may have been a cause for this mans violent outburst. We are sure they will talk about the guns, and guns are topic one in the US currently.

How many have to die before the side effects of antidepressants are topic one?
