Steven Kazmierczak had been taking three drugs prescribed for him by his psychiatrist, the Northern Illinois University gunman's girlfriend told CNN.
Jessica Baty said Steven Kazmierczak was irritable but not erratic before his shooting rampage.
Jessica Baty said Tuesday that her boyfriend of two years had been taking Xanax, used to treat anxiety, and Ambien, a sleep agent, as well as the antidepressant Prozac.
Baty said the psychiatrist prescribed the medications, a fact that made her so "nervous" that she tried to persuade Kazmierczak to stop taking one of the drugs.

..you know....to stop him from acting like a boy.....
AMBIEN! You’ve heard me before, but I’ll say it again: DON”T TAKE AMBIEN! Ask your doctor for something else. I almost burnt down my house cuz of that drug!
Three very serious drugs mixed in an anguished mind in unknown ratios and quantities.
Smiling raindrops and magical butterflies wouldn't mass-murder people with a shotgun, would they?!
Oh, someone hold me!
That was “normal” when I was in grade school, back in the 50s. Now, we’d all be drugged beyond belief.
Xanax and Ambien are sedatives, but sometimes they cause a paradoxical excitement. This is especially true if they are taken recreationally in larger dosages than prescribed.
The Prozac has been implicated in a few vulnerable individuals developing a mania. This is more likely in individuals diagnosed with a bipolar disorder-depressed.
Recipe for disaster, destruction and death.
Jack Nicholson has been quoted as saying:
I warned him (Keith Ledger) about Ambien. I took it once and somebody called me in the middle of the night and I woke up in my car 50 yards from my house. I almost drove off a cliff. I didnt know where I was. Ambien can get you. Not through excessive use, its just some people react more strongly than others.
Why do you think God gave us beer?
After reading about those three on Google, I can’t even imagine a doc prescribing that toxic cocktail. Insane!
To prove that He loves us and wants us to be happy.
What other drugs will affect Ambien?
Before taking Ambien, tell your doctor if you are using any of the following drugs:
antidepressants such as imipramine (Janimine, Tofranil), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), or sertraline (Zoloft);
If you are using any of these drugs, you may not be able to use this medication
I subscribe to a magazine called SALVO (www.salvomag.com). It's very anti-PC. It runs fake advertisements that ridicule things that deserve ridicule.
The current issue has an "ad" on the back cover that reads:
Does your son act too much like a little boy?
Does he have trouble listening or have a puerile sense of humor?
Is he easily distracted?
Does he have a propensity to get dirty?
Does he enjoy playing with violent toys?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then it might be time to medicate your son.
A cure for the common boy.
Well, the obvious answer is more gun control.
I have a good friend who’s a cop. He’s told me stories about stopping cars in which the driver was “sleep-driving!” One guy was nekid! Always AMBIEN involved. I kept wakin’ up in the morning and finding the remains of a meal. One night I put chicken on to fry, then stretched out in front of the tv. The tv wasn’t on, but I guess I was watchin’ something! Woke up when the smoke reached me on the floor. I used to sleepwalk as a kid. AMBIEN reawakened my sleepwalking in a most dangerous way. DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG!
I used to drink before sleeping, but after the alcohol wore-off, I’d wake-up. That sucked at 2am!
lol. Green tea coming out of my nose. Yuk.
Just opening the door and coming home from school is enough to literally destroy any semblance of clean and orderliness in ... ohhh .... sayyyyy .... 5 minutes.
His room is a disaster ... I emptied it the other day ... took the bed down and everything ... cleaned walls, vacumned etc. ... (just about the most amazingly fine job a single dad has ever done in human history!)
The other day ... remember that .... I'm trying to.
His room is ankle deep in clothes, prncil shavings, discarded drawings .. etc.
Bless his heart, he don't stop from the time he opens his eyes until the time he passes out (yes ... he refuses sleep)
But he gets up ... does his life thing with vigor ... and by God!, he'll be a man to be reckoned with someday.
