Artist and Father of Elizabeth Torlakson

On the morning of March 15, 2004, Elizabeth Torlakson, my daughter, walked into a BART train tunnel and moments later was killed by a train. The San Francisco Medical Examiner's final report states that the presence of her antidepressant Citalopram (Celexa) in her body was the other significant factor contributing to her death (the first being the train).

There is mounting and undeniable evidence that SSRI antidepressants induce (cause) high rates of suicide amongst those taking these drugs. Years before Elizabeth’s death, the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry had evidence to this effect, suppressed it, and are still suppressing the full truth.

We believe that Elizabeth would be alive today had she been given proper warning in regard to Celexa and its dangers. We believe that this drug, that was supposed to be helping her, killed her.

This is not a professional medical site. Unsupervised withdrawal from an SSRI antidepressant is extremely dangerous. Any decisions you make in regard to medications should be done under the care and supervision of your trusted doctor.
