So, they reckon that twat who murdered 12 folk in the Cinema 5 or so years ago, dressed like Batman, was affected by the Anti-depressents he was on, having shown no signs of issues prior.

excuse the fact it's on the Beeb.

I don't recall which poster was making links between Murders and Anti-depressents, but I do recall them getting some abuse for it, and I have a feeling they sadly quit this forum.

I tried Sertraline (lustral in uk) 

Whoa not for me, ditched them after 3 days, they seem to massively increase anxiety rather than dimish it, 

I read the So-Called BBC story earlier this morning and it said pretty much the same thing. 

Sertraline is the "go to" SSRI for GP's in England, this will usually be first stop, then people switch and try others until they find one that works for them. 

For me it was Mirtazapine (very mongy like being stoned) 

But i ditched them all after 4 months and never taken anything like that again since. 

Load of (dodgy) snakeoil IMO

I've admitted to having been on Sertaline myself, in the Dosbods thread I believe, and mentioned how it worked very quickly for me (3 days) and that it almost turned me into an Alpha. I certainly had more action whilst on them than I'd ever had, with regards different partners.

I came off them because I didn't want to have to rely on them. They did thier job at the time which was to help me through a breakup and the resulting reduced access to my Daughter. Twas the latter that broke me and I sought help.

There are times when I wish I was back on them.

I can believe that they have the ability to flip certain switches.

Being discussed on LBC now as it happens.

I tried Sertaline; it was hell. Insomnia from the get go coupled with anxiety far exceeding the anxiety I was trying to get rid of.

I remember lying in bed on it and literally wanting to cut myself; to run a knife over my chest to get some relief from what I was feeling. I've never, ever wanted to self harm before or since I took it, but being on it was really scary and not something I want to repeat.

Indeed. Worked wonders for the anxiety for me.

Downside is the ability to fire your gun. Not saying it's like Viagra, not that I've tried it.

I still think if I found the 'right' SSRI, it would probably do me good. Just a very small dose to turn down the anxiety response a tiny bit for the few things in life that do make me really anxious. But I'm quite anti-meds and don't want to invest more time experimenting.

Mirtazipine is the one for that, you take it at night before bed and you WILL sleep, so everything happens when your asleep, totally chilled vibe all day long, nothing phases at all. Tranquil like.

I was given a new combo asthma inhaler, that had just come out, many years ago - within a week I began to feel very suicidal thoughts. Scared me. Stopped taking it. Told GP, seemed surprised, but put me on something else. Suicidal thoughts went.

A year or two later I began to read posts on the internet from people who said they had experienced same thoughts after being put on that particular inhaler.

With regard to SSRI's - no one is reallt sure how they work. Drugs - all drugs - affect people differently. It is not impossible that his SSRI's caused severe mood changes.

Not seen the programme.

What was it? I was prescribed a different broncho dilator for asthma that I've not used much.

Odd things drugs.  I know my wife went bonkers when on Mefloquine years ago.  At the time it wasn't considered to be psychoactive.

Hasn't this been a fairly commonly held belief since "Bowling for Columbine" came out way back in 2002?

I was on paroxatine for a long time. It restrains your emotional responses and reduces your level of empathy for others. It's been correlated with an increased risk of suicide when first taken and I can well imagine how it would make violent actions easier to commit. It makes you feel ok but it doesn't fix the underlying issues in your life. Fixing those issues can be difficult and painful but it's the only way to make life better for you and those around you.

Usually buying some more spanners, or another car, I don't need, off ebay does the trick. Winning an auction for a piece of cream leather interior trim, I'd been looking for ages for, helped me over a difficult relationship break-up in less than 24 hours - although maybe a few bottles of pills would present less of a storage issue than the cars.

I think what we are learning here is never tell your doctor you are a little bit miserable.

Because the following week you will be fucking depressed.

I've commented before, with the medical profession, that just because they haven't plastered page 3 girls up the wall of their office they're to be trusted any more. Most people would be very circumspect about mentioning minor issues, with their car, at Kwik Fit.

I usually buy guitars I won't play. They are smaller than cars.
