Episode 8 - Season 2 - How Much Can Medications Impact Our Actions: The Case of Lindsay Clancy We're All a Little "Crazy"

    • Health & Fitness

Lindsay Clancy was a resident of Duxbury, Massachusetts, one of the nations wealthiest towns. She was a respected nurse, mother of three young children and appeared to have been in a loving marriage. All that came crashing down on January 24th of 2023, when she allegedly killed her three young children and attempted suicide at the family’s home. But what could drive a woman who seemed to have it all, to do such a thing? We’ve since found out that Lindsay was suffering with postpartum depression, was in and out of a psych ward, and between the months of October of 2022 - January of 2023, had been put on no fewer 13 different medications for her mental health. Eric and Theo had on US Gold Medalist in Swimming Samantha Arsenault Livingston - who also gave birth three times and suffered major postpartum depression and suicidal thoughts after the 3rd, where doctors tried to prescribe her meds right away. She refused. The crew also had on Dr. Achina Stein to talk about how practitioners prescribe, how 13 meds are even possible to take over the course of 4 months, and what other treatments and modalities could have been used to manage a case like this. We don’t know all the details, but this episode was made so that more will understand the possibilities that can occur when mental health, medication, and even psychosis are each possible factors in impairing one’s judgment and actions.
