It's not clear to me from this article whether he was [I]currently[/I] taking it. It certainly sounds like bad news:
[QUOTE]From Drugs.com, side effects of the drug Fanapt:
Psychiatric side effects including restlessness, [B]aggression, and delusion[/B] have been reported frequently. [B]Hostility[/B], decreased libido, [B]paranoia[/B], anorgasmia, [B]confusional state[/B], mania, catatonia, mood swings, panic attack, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia nervosa, delirium, polydipsia psychogenic, [B]impulse-control disorder[/B], and major [B]depression[/B] have been reported infrequently.

Why am I not surprised by this? I was actually waiting to see pharmaceuticals turn up in the news reports.
Random killings seem not to be a new phenomenon. Whether they occurred [I]as often[/I] in the past is another question. And if the truth were known, I think we might be surprised at how often pharmaceuticals are involved in current murder-sprees. I don't mean to say that they would be "the cause" but that they would be there as a factor.
The killer was also said to be a vegan, which can hardly have helped his mental stability.
So the side effects of an antipsychotic are psychosis mixed with sexual frustration and self control issues? Sounds like we're lucky the kids weren't raped before getting shot. Who the hell would even invent a drug like that?

All of them that ive heard of.
The Thurston one(Kip Kinkle) I know for sure was on medications. I lived 2 blocks away from the school at the time it happened & if my sister hadent been home-schooled she would have been there.
I've been wanting to research diet and mental health. I know in the two or three years leading up to my going Primal I had a mild depression. Being slightly vegan/mostly vegetarian during that time, I am fairly certain diet caused this depression. If he lead a life of bad eating, I'm wondering if that contributed greatly to his mental disorders.

Which one is driving the bus, so to speak?
Are the anti-psychotic medications causing these people to go on suicidal rampages, or are they going on suicidal murder sprees because they're mentally and emotionally unstable psychos who just happen to be taking anti-psychotic medications?
And why on earth would someone leave unsecured weapons aroud in a hours with someone on anti-psychotic medications!?
What is the reason there were no shoots of this type before these drugs were introduced?
yeah,think so, I know in the two or three years leading up to my going Primal I had a mild depression.[img]http://www.oldjoy.info/jiechiok/images/4.gif[/img]
Not that I trust the pharmaceutical companies any, nor do I have any doubt their products are dangerous, the Business Insider article now features this:
[QUOTE]UPDATE: Since the publishing of this article, New York Daily News has removed the reference, the originator of the quote from Lanza's "uncle," because they believed him to be an "imposter."
There's an awful lot about this care that seems, well, weird. (And anytime the press gloms onto some factoid about it, J. Paul Vance is VERY quick to point out, "We didn't say that.")
Personally, I still want to know who the guy in camo trousers was, who the kid's docs were (and their CVs including past affiliations), and now, we can add who the hell was the guy pretending to be the kid's uncle (and doing it sufficiently convincing to get the Daily News to buy it).
