Charleston Shooter Was On Suboxone, A Drug Linked To Violence

The Charleston shooter, Dylann Storm Roof, was prescribed the pharmaceutical drug Suboxone, a drug that has dangerous side-effects that include outbursts of violence and aggression.

Much like other lone-wolf mass-shooting incidents, being prescribed pharmaceutical drugs and having bizarre personality defects leading up to and following the incident, seem to play a major role.

Could Dylann Storm Roof be the latest victim of dangerous psychiatric drugs or mind-control style NLP therapy, much like James Holmes has been reported to be? reports:

A user on the MD Junction website relates how her husband “became violent, smashing things and threatening me,” after just a few days of coming off suboxone.

Another poster on the website tells the story of how his personality completely changed as a result of taking suboxone.

The individual relates how he became “nasty” and “violent” just weeks into taking the drug, adding that he would “snap” and be mean to people for no reason.

Another poster reveals how his son-in-law “completely changed on suboxone,” and that the drug sent him into “self-destruct mode.”

A user named ‘Jhalloway’ also tells the story of how her husband’s addiction to suboxone was “ruining our life.”

A poster on a separate forum writes about how he became “horribly aggressive” towards his partner after taking 8mg of suboxone.

A website devoted to horror stories about the drug called also features a post by a woman whose husband obtained a gun and began violently beating his 15-year-old son after taking suboxone.

According to a Courier-Journal report, suboxone “is increasingly being abused, sold on the streets and inappropriately prescribed” by doctors. For some users, it is even more addictive than the drugs it’s supposed to help them quit.

As we previously highlighted, virtually every major mass shooter was taking some form of SSRI or other pharmaceutical drug at the time of their attack, including Columbine killer Eric Harris, ‘Batman’ shooter James Holmes and Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza.

As the website SSRI Stories profusely documents, there are literally hundreds of examples of mass shootings, murders and other violent episodes that have been committed by individuals on psychiatric drugs over the past three decades.

Pharmaceutical giants who produce drugs like Zoloft, Prozac and Paxil spend around $2.4 billion dollars a year on direct-to-consumer television advertising every year. By running negative stories about prescription drugs, networks risk losing tens of millions of dollars in ad revenue, which is undoubtedly one of the primary reasons why the connection is habitually downplayed or ignored entirely.

    What the F is wrong with these people? I had taken suboxone for many years & never once, not even a single act of aggression of violence. In fact it does the exact opposite. It actually blocks the brain receptors & it really mellows people down. The women who said her husband became aggressive was as he was DETOXING. It says “when he stopped taking suboxone”. Suboxone doesn’t make someone violent or angry. That’s already in those people. Plenty people get angry and upset when they take suboxone in the beginning because they want their drugs! Its not the suboxone making them angry. Its the lack of Vicodin that makes them angry. Do some fucking research before you ruin the reputation of a drug that saves countless lives. I know when I didn’t have my drugs I got angry. When I got off them and was taking the suboxone it was the happiest I have ever been in my life. This is ignorant. I can find a dozen people with horrible experiences with ANY drug, Tylenol even.

        I was put on suboxone after a 28 year opium habit. I had no such symptoms,( no violence, no nastiness) no personality changes at all. It helped me to basically “switch gears” and probably helped save my life. I am curious about the sites he is getting his information from

  • Bonnie Roy

    I’m DISGUSTED. suboxone has NEVER been linked to violence. THIS IS JUST SLANDER AND LIES. stop contributing to the stigma against addiction and ESPECIALLY people trying to get well. suboxone is for those trying to re-build their life, trying to get off opioids. would you rather these programs be ended and have more people high on pills and heroin in the streets?
    seriously, seriously fuck you for this.

    I was prescribed Suboxone for several years, and I can assure you that I never shot up any churches. This is unadulterated horse crap. The drug, when used as prescribed, works. I was able to curb my addiction to opioids and eventually get completely off Suboxone. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this medication to anyone with opioid issues.
