"The benefits of antidepressants is based upon just one probability, one which has been debunked as non-scientific by many academics. The risks of taking antidepressants are reported side effects, including self-harm, suicidal thoughts and suicide completion. And we are **still** told by Dr's, pharmaceutical companies and medicine regulators that the benefits outweigh the risks. This is an incorrect statement.."
Two days ago I posted a message on the Depression forum at www.everybody.co.nz. Basically, I was trying to raise public awareness in New Zealand about the side effects caused by Aropax (Seroxat) that are not mentioned on the Patient Information Leaflet. To my suprise, the message has now been removed - further investigation shows that www.everybody.co.z are funded by:
Merck Sharpe & Dohme Ministry of Health Astra Zeneca Douglas Pharmaceticals Abbott
This is the second forum in Aus/NZ I have tried to raise public awareness about the dangers of Paroxetine. the first, Depressionet refused to accept my post. Depressionet receives $50,000 per year from pharmaceutical company Wyeth, which markets depression medications.
I wonder why the Australian and New Zealand citizens are pretty much in the dark about the dangers of Seroxat... known as Aropax.
Both Depressionet and www.everybody.co.nz should be ashamed of themselves and therefore I would like to present them both with the Seroxat Sufferers Dumbass Award they so richly deserve.
