    Being on Zoloft for 3 months, she told her D o c t o r "I can't take this."
    So he tells her to cut them in half, Big mistake, and he shoulda known. You can't take someone off or change their dosage with out serious ramifications..The FDA has a warning: Any abrupt changes in dosage, can produce... suicide, hostility, or sycosis.
    After being out drinking she comes home, went to bed, got up around 2:30 in the morning and killed Phil.
    She then drives herself over to a friends house and ask for him to comes back and tell her whether she had killed him or was a bad dream... she couldn't distinguish which was real.

    When the police finally told her she actually shot Phil, she headed for the bedroom as police went to another room. Poor Bren calls her sister to say "Oh my God, I killed Phil." she then begs for her to take care of the kids, hangs up, lays down next to Phil, and shoots herself.

    Interesting that Dr. Tracy then mentions "Rem sleep behavior disorder" and that 86% diagnosed take antidepressants.
    Other references are to: Manuals going out to prosecutors, Drug Co's paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for experts for the prosecution, also the mechanism by which Big Pharma moves in to cover everything up, is to get everyone involved on meds!

    In the case of Columbine, All the money donated to the United Way, went to build a new counseling center, which received, condolence letters and private donations to the kids who had to pick them up there... alot of kids ended up on meds themselves.

    Note: those manuals going out to prosecutors include questions that are asked of experts (almost word for word) in virtually all cases involved with Perscription meds
    She cites the Christoper Pitman case in South Carolina where her and the lawyers for Christopher demanded the manual and got it.
    Good Nite, I am pooped!

    In addition to Zolft, Mrs. Hartman had gone back to her massive cocaine habit, and was also drinking excessively at the time. Both factor into it; particularly the cocaine overintoxication, which can cause delusions and extreme paranoia especially if the user had been on a cocaine binge. This was also mentioned, correct?

      Yes, She was even drinking the very night she killed herself and her husband.
      As for the cocaine, that she kicked the year before when on Paxil. Sbe then had herself checked into a rehab.
      Even with any other drug, Zoloft was the root cause, SSRI's can and have made mild mannered people kill on a dime. Drugawareness.org has close to 5 thousand examples.
      Btw, she was actually on 2 SSRI's at the time, but no cocaine was found.

    No cocaine was found in her system at the time, but she was 2 SSRI's and had drank that very night, although she had never been much of one.
