The Homicide Files: Celexa & Lexapro








Following on from my last post, The Murderous Pills and The Keystone Cops (FDA), which highlighted 6 cases of Paxil related homicide, I now turn my attention to Celexa, known in Europe by its brand name of Cipramil and better known as its generic name of citalopram. Also included is the sister drug to Celexa, namely, Lexapro, known in Europe by its brand name of Cipralex and better known as its generic name of escitalopram.

Once again I will highlight just 6 cases of prescripticide* ~ there are many more in the Murder Meds database.


AERS Case Number 6301497

Homicide by male (age unknown. The patient was taking Celexa (40mg per day) between October 2003 to an unspecified date.

This was sent to Medwatch from a court clerk who had heard the evidence of the accused at trial. Pay particular attention to the side effects leading up to the murder. (Click on images to enlarge)

AERS Case Number 7574444

Homicide by male (78). The patient was taking Celexa (20mg per day) for just 5 days.

Notice, in the report, how his whole mood changed once he started Celexa therapy.



--


AERS Case Number 5850018

Homicide by male (54). The patient was taking Lexapro, unknown dosage, over a period of 2 to 4 weeks.


As you will see, the patient had no prior history of violence or aggression.

AERS Case Number 7274376

Homicide by male (37). The patient was taking Lexapro, 10mg, over a short period of time before he shot and killed his girlfriend and critically wounded a young man. He then failed in his own suicide attempt.

AERS Case Number 6044971

Homicide by male, 55, (Initially the report said he was 40 but this was later rectified)  The patient was taking Lexapro, unknown dosage, over an unspecified time before he shot and killed his wife.

Remarkably, his treating physician did not consider that Lexapro played any part in the, seemingly, induced psychosis. Something that truly baffles me given that this is based on an assumption of the doctor and not scientific evidence.

Finally, the last case is familiar as it concerns 22 year old Shane Clancy from Ireland. His name is omitted from this report. After reading it may be worth listening to the podcast (Link after images) 3 pages of the 6 page report have been redacted (for reasons unknown)

Shane was on citalopram for just 17 days.

AERS Case Number 7164838

(Listen to Podcast for full details)







The above case is explained in great detail in the following Podcast recorded between myself and Shane's mother, Leonie Fennell, back in 2011.
