November 9, 1999 - The Drug Connection - Antidepressants and Violence
Is there a causal connection between the growth of violent crime and the number of people who take antidepressants?
Doctor Julian Whitaker, a medical expert with over 25 years of experience, believes there is a direct link between violent shootings and the increased and indiscriminate use of popular antidepressant drugs and that people taking Prozac, Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil, or a similar drug become violent if they develop akathisia, better known as physical or mental agitation.
According to Dr. Whitaker "Akathisia is to violence what a match is to gasoline. And this condition has been reported in a significant number of Prozac users."
