Man takes Antidepressant Effexor, Kills His Father

Yet another person commits violent murder after being prescribed antidepressants. This time it was the drug Effexor.

Authorities said Mulumba Kazigo broke into his fathers residence, repeatedly beat him with a bat and then cut his father’s throat with a knife while he slept Wednesday morning.

According to Healthwise, a nonprofit organization, the Effexor’s side effects can include hostility, worsening depression and suicidal thoughts. There have been reports throughout the nation of people who allegedly committed violent crimes while on antidepressants, including a Maryland teen who poisoned his best friend and is serving a life sentence.

Other similar drugs like Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft have also been linked to violent behavior. Recently the US Food & Drug Administration ordered the drug companies to place a black box label on antidepressants warning that one of the side effects of these drugs is suicide.

Psychiatrists have long tried to maintain that psychiatric drugs were safe and effective, but much of the truth that has been hidden is now coming to light.

Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Inc., the manufacturer of Effexor, now warns on its Web site that patients should be watched for becoming hostile, aggressive, agitated, irritable, hostile, impulsive, restless or for showing signs of mania.

I can recall at least a dozen similar reports recently about people committing violent murder on their family after receiving psychiatric care and taking these drugs. To me this proves that psychiatry is a failure and that psychiatric drugs are causing tremendous harm. It’s time psychiatry and the big drug companies are held accountable.
