GlaxoSmithKline

GlaxoSmithKline (makers of Paxil/Seroxat) sell $2,000,000,000 worth of paroxetine each year.  Talk about making money out of other people's misery.

The BBC's premier documentary programme Panorama reported:
In a confidential trial, 1 in 60 Seroxat users attempted suidide (the placebo rate was 1 in 550).
Seroxat makes you 950% more likely to want to kill yourself.  The suicides occur within the first fortnight -- there is little risk after this period.

In 2001, Dr David Healy was asked to uncover documents buried by Glaxo Smithkline in the case of Donald Schell, who killed his wife, daughter and granddaughter after 2 days on Paxil.  Although Healy was severely restricted in his investigation, it is his testimony that brought to light the severe problems with Paxil and convinced the jury to find GSK responsible for the deaths.

In 2002, the BBC's Panorama started the first of several programs which resulted in GSK's excuse of 'don't blame us, we told the MHRA everything required by law'.

The MHRA (the UK's drug advisory body) performed a 5th review of Seroxat (Paxil) in 2003, after finding that 2 members held shares in GSK and after GSK handed over evidence that Seroxat caused a massive increase in suicidality in young people.

Richard Brook resigned from the MHRA this year after they tried to coverup their dangerous and incorrect advice to doctors about Seroxat for the previous 10 years.  He stated that the MHRA are "either guilty of extreme negligence or worse dishonesty."

GSK since posted clinical data on child studies on their website, although Dr Healy says it's incomplete and hence yet another blatant lie in order to protect their 'income from misery'.
