… according to news channel ABC7 Chicago – full story here:
“Authorities have not figured out what motivated the man, described as a hardworking, award-winning former honor student by NIU faculty, to go on a shooting rampage that killed five students.
Kazmierczak, 27, was treated for mental illness nine years ago. He was considered volatile, according to a staff member who worked at the facility at the time, and violent if he stopped taking the antidepressant and anti-anxiety pills prescribed for him. Including Paxil, it was medication he was supposed to still be taking and apparently stopped a couple of weeks ago.”
So Paxil/Seroxat may have been involved in this tragedy, however we need to know the details – we need to know the truth.
Update: There is now confirmation that the anti-depressant NIU shooter Steven Kazmierczak went off of a few weeks ago was Prozac, but it’s not clear if he was on the original patented version made by Lilly or if he was on a generic. His ex-girlfriend told CNN that the drug made him feel like a “zombie.”
