Meds and murder. In 2004, Dan Olmsted wrote a ground breaking series with Mark Benjamin about the malaria drug Lariam - and its association with murder suicides. You can read the series here from UPI. Eight years later, Dan was Editor of Age of Autism and wrote "The Kill Pill Murder, Madness, and the Army's Mefloquine Cover-up" for our readers. This week, we suffered the worst mass shooting in our nation's history. Even worse than Orlando and Sandy Hook (a mere 15 miles from my home.) Sandy Hook had a particular horror in that so many school children were murdered by Adam Lanza.
The Las Vegas shooter was said to be a wealthy man, no notable mental health issues, "successful." And he was prescribed valium in June. We at Age of Autism believe firmly that pharma is behind the autism epidemic. And I believe pharma is behind our gun violence epidemic. It's time to demand the medical records of every single shooter since Columbine. Compare them. Forget medical privacy.
Medications and toxin laden vaccinations are changing the American mind from toddlers to Seniors. Better diagnosis? In a pig's eye. Doctors have turned a blind eye to the havoc their peddling for pharma has wrought.
My point in sharing this article is NOT to begin a discussion on gun control - pro or con. If you can make a comment that includes your opinion without rancor toward each other we'll approve it. But no verbal bullets, OK? Thanks. Kim
Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 58 people and wounded hundreds more in Las Vegas on Sunday with high-powered rifles, was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June that can lead to aggressive behavior, the Las Vegas Review-Journal has learned.
Records from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program obtained Tuesday show Paddock was prescribed 50 10-milligram diazepam tablets by Henderson physician Dr. Steven Winkler on June 21.
A woman who answered the phone at Winkler’s office would not make him available to answer questions and would neither confirm nor deny that Paddock was ever a patient.
Paddock purchased the drug — its brand name is Valium — without insurance at a Walgreens store in Reno on the same day it was prescribed. He was supposed to take one pill a day.
Diazepam is a sedative-hypnotic drug in the class of drugs known as benzodiazepines, which studies have shown can trigger aggressive behavior. Chronic use or abuse of sedatives such as diazepam can also trigger psychotic experiences, according to drugabuse.com.
