Teen Plans Columbine Copycat Massacre After Use of Bipolar Meds

Paragraph 7 reads:  “Doelitsch said that he had been depressed and that his mother had taken him off his bipolar medication because she was afraid he would suffer from other health problems later. The teen is back on the medication and is seeing a psychiatrist.”

The danger of withdrawal from antidepressants and antipsychotics is well documented.  The brain tries to compensate for the blockage of the serotonin and dopamine receptors by growing additional receptors for these neurotransmitters.  When the medications are discontinued, these additional receptors contribute to an ‘overload’ of serotonin and dopamine flooding the receptor. This is known as “supersensitivity psychosis” & antidepressant  discontinuation syndrome .  An explanation for both antidepressant withdrawal and antipsychotic Supersensitivity Psychosis caused by withdrawal can be found here.

“Teen Accused Of Plotting School Attack Blames Threats On Depression 
Allen Doelitsch Planned Attack On Boerne Champion High School, Police Say

POSTED: 7:53 am CDT August 28, 2008
UPDATED: 8:24 am CDT August 28, 2008

BOERNE, Texas — An 18-year-old Boerne man charged in plotting an attack at Champion High School blamed depression, being off his medication and a television program for the events that led to his arrest this week.

During a jailhouse interview Wednesday with KSAT 12 News, Allen Doelitsch admitted asking a 14-year-old friend to join him in a “Columbine-style” attack at Boerne’s newest high school on Monday.

But Doelitsch said he never would have following through on the threat. 

“It’s just what I thought about doing at the time,” he said. “I don’t feel like doing it all the time. I never said anything about doing it. I just said I felt like it. I didn’t say I was going to.”

Doelitsch added that it would have been difficult to have carried out the threat because he doesn’t own any weapons.

“I don’t have any guns at my house,” he said. “I really don’t want to hurt other people. There’s no point. They didn’t do anything to me, so why would I do anything to them?”

Doelitsch said that he had been depressed and that his mother had taken him off his bipolar medication because she was afraid he would suffer from other health problems later. The teen is back on the medication and is seeing a psychiatrist.

The teen, who was charged with criminal solicitation of a minor to commit capital murder, also blamed his thoughts after watching television programs about the Columbine Massacre.

“I started watching it and getting into it,” Doelitsch said.

Doelitsch remained in the Kendall County Jail on a $500,000 bond.”
