I’ve just seen this terrible story in the Daily Mirror:
A father is believed to have returned home yesterday evening to find his two young children murdered and his wife with her wrists slit.
Emergency services were called to the home in Wandsworth, south west London, but the 10-week-old baby boy and one-year-old girl were pronounced dead at the scene.
A post mortem is due to take place today although reports have suggested the children showed no signs of injury and may have been smothered.
A woman in her mid-30s, believed to be the man’s wife, was arrested over the deaths and is being questioned by detectives today.
She is understood to have self-harmed but did not require hospital treatment.
Police are believed to be investigating the possibility that the mother was suffering from post-natal depression.
In cases like this, I believe one of the first things to establish is what (if anything) the woman was being treated with for her depression…
The authorities simply must start to take notice about this issue and the public deserves to know if there is a connection between acts of extreme violence and drug treatment – I believe that antidepressants can cause extreme violence.
All too often in the past, it seemed that the only other people in the world who would ever begin to entertain the possibility were people such as Michael Moore and Dr Peter Breggin in the USA – and in England David Healy, Andrew Herxheimer and David B. Menkes, who co-authored a paper on the subject in 2006 – Antidepressants and Violence: Problems at the Interface of Medicine and Law.

As I’ve said, there has to be a proper investigation into this issue – and I believe that the drug companies (such as Glaxo) know the problem exists, but have done nothing about it as it would have affected their profits.
