Well, I never… Seroxat Secrets has just passed 500,000 unique visits. That’s half a million hits.
OK, it took a few years to get here, but I hope it’s been worthwhile and that the blog has helped a few people along the way.
My first post was in 2006 and when I started writing I wanted to create an internet resource that would gather together information and links and allow people to make an informed choice about the medication they were taking – or were about to take. I wanted to provide a counterpoint to the lies and spin that pharmaceutical companies turn out under the guise of ‘marketing’.
A few years ago I added a page to Seroxat Secrets, ‘What I believe’ – and it’s still what I believe:
I believe Seroxat is defective and dangerous.
I believe that Glaxo has hidden negative clinical trial data that shows exactly how dangerous a drug it is.
I believe that Seroxat is addictive.
I believe that Seroxat can cause anger, aggression and violence.
I believe that something must be done to help people who suffer terrible problems during withdrawal, as they desperately try to stop taking Seroxat.
I believe that doctors have taken large sums of money from Glaxo to lie about the efficacy and safety of the drug.
I believe that GlaxoSmithKline puts profits before patients – their wealth before our health.
I took Seroxat for 9 years and it took me 22 months to withdraw from the drug little by little. Believe me – I know what I’m talking about.
There is just one thing I’d add to this list today:
Glaxo must not be allowed to get away with it.
