Paragraphs two & three read:  "Annabelle Tom told the Free Press her daughter, Cheryl, 35, suffered from bipolar disorder -- also known as manic depression -- for which she took four kinds of medication."

With the tremendous increase in the diagnosis of "bipolar" disorder, the majority of which is being caused by the massive use of antidepressants, there are now tragic stories of people dying from the cocktail of drugs which are given for this condition. The cocktail usually includes a mood stabilizer, one or two antipsychotics, one or two [or more] antidepressants and a sedative[s].  It is a National Tragedy.

EXCLUSIVE: Woman who died after being taken to detox centre didn't drink: mother

By Joe Paraskevas
The mother of a woman who died after being taken by police Monday to a downtown detox centre said today her daughter should have gone to hospital instead.

Annabelle Tom told the Free Press her daughter, Cheryl, 35, suffered from bipolar disorder -- also known as manic depression -- for which she took four kinds of medication.

Tom said she believed her daughter unintentionally took too much medication before leaving her St. James apartment. The medication could have made Cheryl Tom slur her words, her mother said.

"My daughter didn't drink. My daughter was bipolar and she took medication for her bipolar."

Police said they arrested her for intoxication at a St. James convenience store.

Police reported they were called to the store in the 3300 block of Portage Avenue at about 7 a.m. Monday and took the woman to the Main Street Project, a detoxification detention centre.
