GSK: Ali Benbow - Unaware Or Just A Liar?



Seroxat does have side effects, but these are clearly stated in the information that’s made available to doctors and to patients. Dr. Alastair Benbow Head of European Psychiatry for GlaxoSmithKline 10/13/02


No, we are not misleading them [patients]. The information in the patient leaflet and in the information we supply to doctors, is based on fact. Dr. Alastair Benbow Head of European Psychiatry for GlaxoSmithKline 10/13/02

The evidence, however, is clear, these medicines are not linked with suicide, these medicines are not linked with an increased rate of self harm. Dr. Alastair Benbow GlaxoSmithKline’s European Medical Director 10/3/2004

The side effects [of Paxil “discontinuance”] are things like dizziness, nausea, headache, um, and are clearly labeled in the information made available to doctors and patients. Dr. Alastair Benbow GlaxoSmithKline’s European Medical Director Source: GSK’s web site 2004

I think patients have nothing to fear from taking Seroxat. Dr. Alastair Benbow GlaxoSmithKline’s European Medical Director 6/13/2002


It was quite clear from talking to patients and as a doctor that’s very, very important to me, it’s quite clear that the phrase “Seroxat is not addictive” was poorly understood by them. Dr. Alastair Benbow Head of European Psychiatry for GlaxoSmithKline 5/11/03

I utterly refute any allegations we are sitting on data, that [we] have withheld data or anything like that. We have provided all the data both relating to safety and efficacy in the pediatric population to the regulatory authorities around the world and have hidden nothing. Dr. Alastair Benbow Head of European Psychiatry for GlaxoSmithKline 6/15/2003

The overwhelming view of independent medical experts and regulatory bodies around the world who have seen the data, is that Seroxat has a well established safety profile and is an effective treatment with experience in tens of millions of patients worldwide since launch in the UK over ten years ago. Dr. Alastair Benbow Head of European Psychiatry for GlaxoSmithKline 10/10/2002

We take the safety of our medicines extremely seriously…. Dr. Alastair Benbow GlaxoSmithKline’s European Medical Director Source: GSK’s web site 2004

Anybody who suffers side effects of any sort I feel every sympathy for….Dr. Alastair Benbow Head of European Psychiatry for GlaxoSmithKline 5/11/03
