"The same Senate committee investigating the Ketek® scandal uncovered another study with falsified data. These fake data were used to support the approval of a popular antidepressant drug used by millions of human beings.
According to a report authored by a Harvard medical doctor, when the Paxil® application was submitted to an FDA advisory committee in 1991, the drug company improperly put people who had previously attempted suicide into the placebo group, so that it would appear that the Paxil® group would have the same rate or an even lower rate of suicide than the placebo recipients. This was done to make it appear that there was no increased risk of suicidal behavior in those taking Paxil® compared with placebo.
It took until 2006 for the manufacturer to send a letter to doctors admitting that the risk of suicidal behavior was 6.7 times higher in study subjects taking Paxil® compared with placebo.(10)
Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in the United States.(11) It killed over 32,000 people in the United States in 2004. The number of suicides attributed to drugs like Paxil® (selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors) could be in the hundreds of thousands during the 13 years it was fraudulently marketed.(8,9)"
