“We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Urgently move to withdraw the SSRI Seroxat from the list of licensed medications for depression”.
Here’s the link – please go and sign it if you live in the UK.
The petition was submitted by Matthew Holford, who writes:
“It appears, based on Glaxo SmithKline’s own internal trials and communications that this drug does not work any better than the placebo is was trialled against, and that it has massively dangerous side effects.
That it was licensed in the first place is something of a mystery. That it continues to be so, given the significant body of opinion opposing the Chemical Imbalance theory, and findings of liability on GSK’s part in the courts, is a cause for alarm and suspicion”.
