All this talk about Seroxat addiction and withdrawal reminded me of a post that I wrote back in 2007… I think it would be very interesting to see the data from the studies that Dr Wheadon spoke about while under oath in California.
Especially given what we now know about the lies GSK told about Study 329.
You might think that after all the years of doctors and patients all around the world saying Seroxat is highly addictive – oops, sorry, causes dependence and severe withdrawal reactions – that Glaxo would simply undertake the definitive study to prove us all wrong and to show the world once and for all really how safe and non-addictive Seroxat is…
Well, the truth is Glaxo could have done this years ago but it has not. Why? I leave that simple question to you to answer.
In fact, the official Paxil prescribing information (produced by Glaxo, current version) confirms this by saying:
DRUG ABUSE AND DEPENDENCE
Controlled Substance Class: PAXIL is not a controlled substance.
Physical and Psychologic Dependence: PAXIL has not been systematically studied in animals or humans for its potential for abuse, tolerance or physical dependence…
Again, I ask Glaxo why have no systematic studies been done? Why not…
