SEROXAT SUFFERERS - STAND UP AND BE COUNTED: Classic GlaxoSmithKline [UK Seroxat Litigation] -Bob Fiddaman

SEROXAT SUFFERERS - STAND UP AND BE COUNTED: Classic GlaxoSmithKline [UK Seroxat Litigation]

SEROXAT SUFFERERS - STAND UP AND BE COUNTED: Classic GlaxoSmithKline [UK

Seroxat Litigation] -Bob Fiddaman "Glaxo have 'invited' the solicitors to discontinue the claimants cases. Moreover, if they do so by 30th April 2009 then Glaxo say they will bear their own legal costs. [If Glaxo were successful at trial in defeating the claimants then they could seek their own legal costs] Not content with this, Glaxo are now, it seems, using brute force by writing to the Legal Services Commission [LSC] and have asked them to withdraw public funding! I have heard of standard tactics used by law teams but this attempt by GlaxoSmithKline is limp-wristed and only highlights their reluctance in keeping records away from the public eye."-Bob Fiddaman, author of Seroxat (PAXIL) Sufferers

Addendum- April 11, 2009: From Fid's Blog and Evelyn Pringle (Evelyn Pringle is a columnist for Scoop Independent News and an investigative journalist focused on exposing corruption in government and corporate America):

ANOTHER SHRINK BITES THE DUST:

Brown University’s Martin Keller is the latest chairman of psychiatry to be replaced since an on-going investigation led by Iowa Republican, Senator Charles Grassley, on behalf of the US Senate Finance Committee revealed the millions of dollars in undisclosed payments flowing between psychiatric drug makers and “key opinion leaders” in the field of child psychiatry.

Keller originally gained fame as the lead author on Paxil Study 329, which claimed Paxil was “generally well tolerated and effective for major depression in adolescents.”

However, a later review of the underlying data showed the drug worked no better than a placebo. In addition, among the 93 kids taking Paxil, five suicide-related adverse events occurred compared to only one in the group of 89 kids taking a placebo.

Yet in the 2001 paper published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the authors reported that only one child suffered a serious adverse event, a headache, not considered to be related to treatment with Paxil.

Documents obtained in litigation have since revealed that GlaxoSmithKline knew the study was a failure when the data was reviewed in 1998, long before the paper appeared in the Journal.

Keller always gets the credit for publishing Study 329, but the fact is, not one of the authors who lent their names to this fraudulent study have come forth to explain their obvious deception. Therefore, their names deserve to be highlighted as well and include: Neil Ryan, Michael Strober, Rachel Klein, Stan Kutcher, Boris Birmaher, Owen Hagino, Harold Koplewicz, Gabrielle Carlson, Gregory Clarke, Graham Emslie, David Feinberg, Barbara Geller, Vivek Kusumakar, George Papatheodorou, William Sack, Michael Sweeney, Karen Wagner, Elizabeth Weller, Nancy Winters, Rosemary Oakes, James McCafferty, and Sally Laden.Senator Grassley’s list thus far also includes Harvard’s Thomas Spencer and Timothy Wilens; Melissa DelBello at the University of Cincinnati; and Karen Wagner and Augustus John Rush from the University of Texas. Rush recently moved to Singapore.The Finance Committee has jurisdiction over the Medicare and Medicaid programs and, “Actions taken by key opinion leaders often have profound impact upon the decisionsmade by taxpayer funded programs like Medicare and Medicaid and the way that patients are treated and funds expended,” according to the Senator.

I just wanted to show how twisted this web of corruption and criminal activity weaves in its killer influence throughout pharma, psychiatry, and the FDA.

I highlighted Barbara Geller above, because she is one of the B-Team the FDA brought in to vote on the Seroquel XR recommendation committee. Notice she was part of the lie with the Paxil study, and now is at the FDA doing AZ's bidding.

I Wonder what the benefits were paid to Geller in this instance?

For the full story please visit Fid's blog located on my side bar or the link at top of this post. I can only say fight on, and truth will prevail over evil some day.

Do you know what I think? I think that there are two very broad possibilities. First, that "they've" realized what mental illness is, have also, somewhat laboriously, calculated the risks involved in acknowledging it, and have realized that drugs can never cure it. Second, that they haven't got a clue, and haven't the courage to acknowledge that, not least because they're doing very nicely, financially-speaking, from continuing to perpetuate the idea that drugs are the only real solution and that they're the only ones who have even the vaguest understanding of anything.

Hi Stan,

I agree with Matt I think thatbthey can't acknowledge what mental illness is.

Drugs can never cure it.

They have got a clue.

Don't want to acknowledge this.

They are for sure doing nicely from perpetuating the myth that drugs are the only solution.

And they just like any of these 'daddy' figures think they are the only ones who have an understanding of anything the rest of us being too thick.

They would like nothing more than putting us all on drugs, preferably for life.

They can't define what normal is but think they know what is not normal.

All makes sense to me how about you?

Love,

Herrad

pa hope you are doing well Stan?

Mental illness is merely an opinion of the observer. Same way doctor's tell you that you have a trapped nerve when you complain of a pain in your neck - they can't see it - it's just their opinion.

Crux here is - many psychiatrists are on 'bonuses' for prescribing meds to people with a 'mental illness'.

Thanks for the shout out Stan
