There are some interesting posts over at Seroxat Sufferers, regarding the UK Seroxat High Court case.

It would appear, through my blog statistics, that Addleshaw Goddard, GlaxoSmithKline’s lawyers, just can’t keep off my blog. Fleet street, it would seem, are also taking an interest.
Here’s some documents for you all to browse.
Here is a PDF that I sent to the MHRA some years ago. It is patients speaking out because they believe the have been affected by severe Seroxat withdrawal. The MHRA did nothing about it. DOWNLOAD
Here is a 74 page document that GlaxoSmithKline previously sealed. The British press should read through it, the revelations are startling to say the least. – DOWNLOAD
The most interesting, and one that Addleshaw Goddard should find interesting, is this one. A nice internal document from GSK that proudly boasts, “ALL SSRi’s ARE NOT THE SAME.” – DOWNLOAD
If any of the above haven’t convinced you, then maybe the following will? It’s another internal document from GSK – This time playing down the withdrawal issues assoociated with Seroxat. – DOWNLOAD
A second post details Glaxo’s fraud regarding Seroxat withdrawal symptoms. This from a Glaxo internal memo:
‘Discontinuation symptoms’ is the preferred term for describing symptoms which may occur when an SSRi is discontinued.
Terminology such as ‘withdrawal symptoms’ should be avoided as it implies dependence.
I suggest you visit Seroxat Sufferers and have a good look around the site!
