Paxil Exposed

Here is a CBS investigative report on Paxil and its destructive effects on children: CBS 42: Paxil and Kids

Watch right to the end because at the very end it is announced that Paxil has also been found to increase the chances of suicide in adults. "Safe and Effective" - yeah right!

Standard Clinical Research Guidelines Cause Disaster

Six people who where subjects of a drug trial are in critical condition. Six Hospitalized in British Drug Trial. This sort of human experimentation goes on all the time under the guise of "clinical trials." How experiments of this sort can be allowed in a so called "civilized" society is explained by the huge amounts of money the pharmaceutical companies pay out to have laws passed to make it okay.

Here are some of the excuses: the trial "adhered to standard clinical research guidelines" (which allow people to be experimented on), "Such an adverse drug reaction occurs extremely rarely and this is an unfortunate and unusual situation" (yeah, like the unusual occurrence of 26 people killing themselves during the trials for Prozac), "These events were completely unexpected and do not reflect the results we obtained from initial laboratory studies" (wow, those must have been really thorough lab studies), "Our immediate priority has been to ensure that no further patients are harmed" (read that as "no further PR is harmed".

Psychiatrists Experimenting on Children

Children between 4 and 6 years old are being used as human guinea pigs in a "study" being performed by the Department of Pediatric Psychopharmacology at Massachusetts General Hospital. The drugs being tested are so dangerous that they have a "black box" warning because they cause diabetes, a life-threatening nervous system problem, low blood pressure and even death in adults, so god knows what they are going to do to young children. Now maybe you think, "and their parents let them be used in these experiments?" but the parents weren't told about the side-effects of the drugs!

This is something you probably thought ended with the Nuremberg Trials where the people who ran the Nazi Death Camps were finally brought to justice. Well, no. This is happening right now in America. Here is the data: Tots Used as Human Guinea Pigs?

Suicide warning issued for young Paxil users

I take no pleasure in saying "I told you so." The fact that Paxil and other antidepressants cause suicide in children has been known by the drug makers for a long, long time. Prescribing antidepressants to children is banned in the UK and several other countries and has been for years. The FDA still hasn't banned it but at least this is a step forward: Suicide warning issued for young Paxil users .

I also want to point out that last year Tom Cruise was attacked again and again by "experts" for saying that these drugs were dangerous. It seems he can now say "I told you so," but he probably won't, there is little pleasure in it when you think of the number of kids who've died due to the criminal negligence of the FDA and the profit hungry lying of the pharmaceutical industry.
