Some worthwhile links

Seroxat Secrets tackles the latest in Wikepedia and the deletion of many sources of reference from the anti-Seroxat brigade. It seems someone by the name of Paul Gene has deleted many entries, including: Lawsuits against GSK, the alleged gag placed on Rob Robinson, author of Paxil Protest, the UK litigation against GSK, Robbie Williams link with Seroxat. Something is obviously afoot, is Paul Gene a pseudonym or just another Marty Keller? You can read more over at Seroxat Secrets HERE & HERE

Phil Dawdy shows off his writing skills over at Furious Seasons. There's a great piece on The Times failure to recognise a major conflict of interest in a recent interview with Sanjay Gupta, a psychiatrist at the University of Buffalo. Phil writes that Gupta 'fibbed when he claimed there was no proof of a link between suicides and suicidality and anti-depressants, specifically Prozac. Not only was his claim incorrect, but as it now turns out Gupta has received honoraria and other funding from Eli Lilly in the past. This was not noted in his interview which recently ran in the New York Times.'

Phil also adds that Dr. Gupta is a consultant for Eli Lilly; has received research/grant support from Eli Lilly, Janssen, and Abbott; has received honoraria from Eli Lilly, Janssen, Forest, and Pfizer; and is on the speaker or advisory boards of Eli Lilly, Janssen, and Forest. Phil thanks CL Psych for the tip.

There's a much more poignant piece on Furious Seasons about a guy who shared the same name as Phil. I must admit it kind of brought home to me how valuable life is. I'm unsure how to link from Phil's site so you will just have to go to the homepage and read through his most recent articles. It's a thoroughly good read as are most of the level headed, non funded websites out there. Furious Seasons can be found HERE

Seroxat Sufferers regular Matthew Holford has been causing a stir within the MHRA it seems. I highlighted his email to Professors Breckenridge and Woods - there are many more emails to and from the MHRA on his blog 'It's Quite An Experience'
