A Prescription For Murder? UK BBC One Documentary

A Prescription For Murder?

Wednesday, 26th July 2017 at 9:00pm.
You can watch on BBC iPlayer if you miss it if you live inside the UK.

This new Panorama documentary looks into whether prescription antidepressants can turn you into a killer.

Over 40 million prescriptions for SSRI antidepressants were handed out by doctors last year in the UK.

Panorama reveals the devastating side effects that can lead to psychosis, violence, possibly even murder.

With exclusive access to psychiatric reports, court footage and drug company data, reporter Shelley Jofre investigates the mass killings at the 2012 midnight premiere of a Batman movie in Aurora, Colorado. Twenty-four-year-old PhD student James Holmes, who had no record of violence or gun ownership, murdered 12 and injured 70.

Did the SSRI antidepressant he had been prescribed play a part in the killings?

Panorama has uncovered other cases of murder and extreme violence which could be linked to psychosis developed after the taking of SSRIs – including a father who strangled his 11-year-old son.

Panorama asks if enough is known about this rare side effect, and if doctors are unwittingly prescribing what could be a prescription for murder.

Shelley Jofre reports on rare but possibly devastating side effects of SSRI antidepressants that can lead to psychosis, violence and even murder.

Oh wow, this is going to really help with stigma.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

Saw the trailer for this while watching TV with service users at work tonight (I work in a crisis house). We had the same thought!



"I know you're sad, so I won't tell you to have a good day. Instead, I advise you to simply have a day.
Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don't give up on yourself just yet.
It'll get better. Until then, have a day."

It sounds scaremongering. The vast majority of people who take antidepressants have no side effects beyond the usual headache and nausea.



Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back, everything is different…

you once called your brain a hard drive, well say hello to the virus.

Agreed. The proportion of people that experience homicidal acts is so low that I wonder why they are even doing this documentary.

People are going to choose depression over SSRI treatment, which could lead to an increase in suicides.



PM me if you want a PDF copy of the ICD-10 or the Mental Health Act 1983/2007. I ALSO HAVE THE DSM-V BOOK and am a pharmacology student.

I have a visual impairment / neurological problems so I need people to type in clear text and no funny fonts. Also excuse any typos, my vision blocks things out.
I have autism and have problems communicating, PMs included.
Just becasue I type well doesn't mean I speak well. I am only part time verbal.

The court decided he couldn't plea insanity.

He had been off the meds for 3 weeks at the time of the act.

Just sensationalist rubbish!!

I never the documentary but to me it sounds like something that happens so rarely but the producers make it sound like it happens every minute of the day. How would anyone know if it was the pills that caused it? The illness or due to circumstances of person who committed the crime. Then it brings up the biology vs nurture



Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside. I tried groups, didn't work out just made my depression a lot worse.
