When the lights go out

  • Incredibly, 11 percent of all Americans aged 12 and older are currently taking SSRI antidepressants – those highly controversial, mood-altering psychiatric drugs with the FDA’s “suicidality” warning label and alarming correlation with school shooters. Women are especially prone to depression, with a stunning 23 percent of all American women in their 40s and 50s – almost one in four – now taking antidepressants, according to a major study by the CDC;
What people don't understand about antipsychotic, antidepressants, etc. is how much trauma they cause when a person stops taking them. Like any other drug, these drugs cause a dependence and the withdrawals from these drugs can be deadly. 

I know from personal experience the hell of coming off of these drugs. It's unlike any other experience. The best way I can describe it is like imagining someone hijacked your sense of well-being and emotional stability. It's no surprise that most shooters were on these drugs and then recently stopped. The effects of stopping these drugs is well known. 

But what isn't is what would happen if all of these people stopped taking them en masse. This is one of the reasons why I don't think economic collapse in America will be anything like the Great Depression or the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Soviet's doped their populace but it was not to the extent that America has done it.

The SSRI is a bomb just waiting to go off a few days after the lights go out.

"Americans snapping."


  1. It's funny. In my case, diet played an enormous role in depression. It cleared up a lot when I started eating paleo, and yet, I was terrified, more than the depression of SSRIs. That shit creeps me out.

    That is why it is incredibly important that we keep healthy and we lift weights and whatnot. We'll be a step ahead of the people with insulin, ssris, warafarin etc. But then...

  2. It was hell for me getting off those drugs. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. The experience was two weeks long for the brunt of it. In that time I starting crying if someone looked at me. I paced back and forth in my apartment non-stop, completely unable to sit down. My legs, chest, neck, had this ceaseless, restless energy passing through it. I went to the emergency room three times. I kept thinking that I would never recover, especially after the doctor's told me there was nothing wrong with me. I don't know how I endured but I did. I know what hell is like.

  3. Dr. Faust you need to have a more automatically critical and suspicious attitude about what you are reading. I also saw that "Americans snapping by the millions" article linked on Drudge report (which I'm guessing is where you saw the link yourself) and something struck me as fishy.

    Barely 15 minutes of digging uncovered a whole new world of creepiness; Drudge and his WND pals are devotees of weirdo quasi-Christian cult leader Roy Masters, for whom that entire WND "news" article is nothing more than an infomercial; years ago there was a rumor that Drudge was hoping Masters' mind-control techniques would help cure him (Drudge) of his homosexuality; the meditation technique which WND is pushing to stressed out US servicemen is basically designed to get you to get right with Jesus; and on and on. The article implies that the US military officially endorses this meditation routine, whereas a careful reading reveals that the endorsements come only from a few individual personnel who are not speaking on behalf of their respective departments. It's all dodgy to say the least.
