I was looking through the file transcripts for Silent Hill when I noticed something...

WHITE CLAUDIA
Perennial herb found near water.
Reaches height of 10 to 15 inches.
Oblong leaves, white blossoms.
Seeds contain hallucinogen.
Ancient records show it was used for religious
Ceremonies.

Prosac. Yes, I realise it's not the correct spelling, but I thought it was interesting.
And apologies if this has been discussed before! :P

Lol. I totally love Engrish.com. It makes my bad days go bye bye.

Interesting find. Could be by accident, too, though. Funny.

To get technical, it's a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor.

It's an interesting find, but I don't really see how there could be any connection between Prozac and White Claudia. White Claudia's a hallucinogenic psychotropic narcotic. Prozac is most definitely not.

well, the connection would be: All the characters involved have enough reasons to be pretty damn depressed. And a few depressions would definately have been caused by this whole WC mess ;)

Think of Italy — which reminds me of California in so many ways — and its chronic inability to form a government. That’s California, with even better food and no parliamentary system.
....somewhere in Italy a contract was put out on the life of the article's author.

i agree with Son. If u find anything on silent hill, it was most likely put there on purpose. nothing is a coincidence.

After reading this, I looked around for recreational Prozac use. Didn't find any cases of Prozac highs, but interestingly enough, I found this:

The Interactions between Hallucinogens and Antidepressants

"In a nutshell, people who were taking serotonin-selective antidepressants or MAO inhibitors had a decrease or abolishment of their response to hallucinogens."

Food for thought.

yeah well I'm still twitchy lol well I get muscles twitches

but seriously, it makes sense that the drug decreases the effects of hallucinogens - after all they are meant to help you calm down and stop having severe bouts of mania, etc.

is it the same case for White Claudia? With the reputation of Silent Hill+residents...doubtful :D

You can get drugged with rohypnol.

I have a theory. Shoot me if I sound dumb. But Lisa seemed very depressed, especially in the diary entrys. I think White Claudia may cause depression and paranoia and whatever else. Which would make the prozac find make sense.
There were moments of Engrish in the game. I can't remember what, they were small things... so maybe proSac is an Engrish word??? Easy mistake to make, as an "Z" can also sound like an "S".

The link between the two also might have been commentary on the prevalence of antidepressant use in the world today. It's hard to tell with SH. The misspelling is fairly close to "prosaic", a word for everyday or routine. Prosac, prosaic, Prozac... The drugs people take every day, routine for a lot of us. I don't know. It's 5am. I got nothin.
