Man Attacks Girlfriend & Then Slits Own Throat: Both Survive: Had Changed his A/D that Day
Paragraphs six and seven read: "After the incident, she was left with a four inch abrasion on her neck and Wright had a cut across the length of his throat."
"At a previous hearing, it was heard that Wright had changed his depression medication that day and knew he should not have been drinking alcohol with it."
SSRI Stories Note: The Physicians Desk Reference states that antidepressants can cause a craving for alcohol and can cause alcohol abuse. Also, the liver cannot metabolize the antidepressant and the alcohol simultaneously, thus leading to higher levels of both alcohol and the antidepressant in the human body.
