[2002 Interview] Prozac, Suicide---Dr. Healy

The Risks Outweigh the Benefits - An Interview with Bob Fiddaman  The withdrawal hell of Seroxat doesn't look like much when reading about it. One has to experience it at first hand to fully understand just how debilitating it can be. .....GSK messed my life up and are continuing to mess with other people’s lives. I don't want them to do that so I write about them.  In all I was on the liquid Seroxat for a total of 18 months, weaning down from 40mg per day to 22mg per day - it was a long process but It was something I needed to do. This drug had control of me, my thoughts, my emotions, dare I say it, my whole life.

Now, according to Breggin, the whole policy has been reversed. Soldiers who are heading for the battlefield must agree to take these drugs. If you were mounting a conscious plan to destroy a military force from within, the widespread prescription of psychotropic drugs would be an obvious choice......Here are excerpts from Dr. Baughman's published letter: " [I] opened and financed my own investigation into these unexplained deaths. Andrew White, Eric Layne, Nicholas Endicott and Derek Johnson, all in their twenties, were four West Virginia veterans who died in their sleep in early 2008.... All were on the same prescribed drug cocktail, Seroquel (antipsychotic), Paxil (antidepressant) and Klonopin (benzodiazepine) and all appeared "normal" when they went to sleep.

Trail Of Paxil Suicides Leads To GlaxoSmithKline By Evelyn Pringle

[2004] Why I resigned over this disgraceful "happy pill" cover-up by RICHARD BROOK "The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulation Agency found from information that had been in its possession for more than a decade that high doses of the anti-depressant can lead to aggression and thoughts of suicide. But instead of revealing the truth to the 17,000 people taking high doses and the other half-million Britons on a safer dose, the MHRA sat on its findings. Astonishingly, I was actually threatened with legal action by Professor Kent Woods, chief executive of the MHRA, if I revealed this."

[pdf] Seroxat Article 31 - Consolidated Response Document - January 04  GSK received 1,413 reports of self-harm/suicidal behaviour in adults plus patients of unspecified age up to 31 May 2003.
