I have no trouble making difficult decisions. I do not agonize too much just ask around. I sleep well at night.

I do not need to take anything. I am fortunate to be in very good health. And you have to be well in your head. You have to enjoy not the destination, but the journey.

I can’t count on people just to trust us as a company to do the right thing, even though they should.

I think you have to develop a culture where if there is bad news you don’t sit on bad news. Bad news does not get any better. It can only get better if it’s admitted, understood and addressed.

We’re reviewing every single process at the company. The environment of the business has changed after Enron. I believe that there was a lack of trust [on the part of] the public for big business, and that lack of trust has been amplified by a few bad apples in the cart. And because of that, there has been a tremendous loss of trust in all big business not just pharma and that has implications to me as a CEO.

Obviously doctors are very busy people, and their day is packed with patients. The question is how do doctors get information about medicines and new research into treatments and disease, and one of the easiest ways is this kind of presentation [“dine and dash”]. We think this is a benefit to both physicians and patients.”

We don’t want to be accused of anything about the way we deal with trials.

As a knowledge-based industry we understand full well the value of information, and we want to create a climate of openness where the evidence for prescribing our products is clear.

I think if, if we’ve been guilty of anything over the past few years, perhaps, um, emphasizing entertainment over education, um, we know that’s what patients really want.

Seroxat does have side effects, but these are clearly stated in the information that’s made available to doctors and to patients.

    You know, JP, that’s right? At least, I find I sleep much better, when I’m decisive.
