“Suffering from Depression” – 2015

Prescription

 

In the course of my research, I came across many inquest reports in which there appeared to be all the hallmarks of an antidepressant-related death, but where there was no mention of medication However, in several reports, treatment by a GP or psychiatric services was implied, through phrases such as “suffering from depression” or “history of depression”.

Many local newspapers now give a minimal amount of information. I have included some of these reports, where the impulsive, reckless or violent behaviour involved is typical of antidepressant-induced deaths.

The format of the list is as follows: Name (with Hyperlink); Occupation; Age; Location; Evidence; Cause of Death.

I hope that I have not intruded on anybody’s private grief by collating this information. However, if you are related to one of the victims, and do not wish your relative’s name to be included, please send an email to brian@antidepaware.co.uk with the details, and their name and link will be removed.

On the other hand, I should also be grateful to hear from anybody who can either confirm whether or not antidepressants were being taken by the victim at the time of the tragedy, or had been withdrawn during the previous year.
