Former Pharmaceutical Rep speaks out

Gwen Olsen is a woman who used to be a pharmaceutical sales rep for 15 years until her niece killed herself while taking antidepressants. Gwen has written a book called, “Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher.”

However, what I’d like to recommend to you is Gwen on YouTube. The first link is here and Gwen talks about her time working in the pharmaceutical industry and tells us exactly how drugs are marketed and approved in America.

In the second link here, Gwen tells us about her own personal experience of being prescribed SSRIs.

The third link (here) is an interview that was only on broadcast on the web from http://www.cbs.com. In it Gwen discusses the prescription of anti-psychotic drugs to children.

All the videos are well worth watching.
