Methinks Michael Byrne QC, as good as he may be, simply did NOT understand the significance of the sertraline levels, liver concentrations, and post-mortem redistribution.
But we did... And so did the prosecution.

Dr Schram says Allison complained of a depressed mood, self doubt, low self confidence and anxiety over many years #badenclay

He also had injuries to his chest and arm
He didn't say anything about these injuries to police #badenclay

Gerard says no, they were self inflicted. It just didn't seem relevant. #badenclay
I didn't even know there was such a thing as a suicidologist?
EXACTLY! I was going to write the same today - you have put it perfectly Laserdisc10. He's nowhere near the sex addict others have painted him - the chase, adulation and needy dramas far outweigh the sexy times.
This is IMHO the root (!) cause of his claimed sexless marriage - once that ring was on the finger and the babies came along to steal his thunder, that was it. Those entries in Allison's journal confirmed that in my mind. I hope the prosecution hammers home those two entries in their summing up.
I can't answer completely, but i know many antidepressants have suicidal ideation as a side effect, in particular when coming off them. Some drugs need to be carefully withdrawn from your body or you get nasty side-effects including suicide. It's why they say don't just stop taking them. A lot of people have taken antidepressants then felt better so stopped, only to kill themselves.

Dr Schramm: folly to say you can predict it simply because you have a degree #badenclay
