I'm sorry, my sympathies are with Lanza and his mother. The medical profession will insist on prescribing these potent antidepessants which screws up rational thought. I'ts outside the scope of this board to talk about serotonin reuptake save to say the FDA has a black box warning against prescribing these to under 18s (it's strongest warning other than pulling the drug). This cut off age is arbitrary and 20 year olds should be treated with care, we don't all develop at the same speed. Let's think a second:

"Adam Lanza attended Newtown High School, and several local news clippings from recent years mention his name among the school's honor roll students."
Does an honor student go crazy? What about these meds?

So in the end he killed himself - duh - there is a clue for you. I have enormous feelings of sorrow for the families and school security can't reasonably defend against this one and no gun control will not fix squat. Upgrading politicians will fix many things. Any of us can be changed into monsters with chemical assistance and now we prescribe these drugs to the general public like candy, watch your TV tonight - stupid. Where the fkc is the surgeon general in all this? These potent anti psychotics belong in such places as the Walter Reed hospital and are not for whacked out teenagers who are depressed they are not getting laid. I'm disgusted.
