Madness Radio: Paxil [Seroxat] On Trial Alison Bass - The Podcast
Source: Madness Radio
When GlaxoSmithKline was caught lying about the risks of its blockbuster anti-depressant Paxil [Seroxat], it set off ongoing investigations. How did New York state take on one of the world's most powerful companies? Was NY Governor Eliot Spitzer driven out by his corporate enemies? Pulitzer-nominated Boston Globe journalist Alison Bass, author of Side Effects: A Prosecutor, A Whistleblower, And A Bestselling Antidepressant On Trial, discusses legal battles to clean up drug company corruption, including pay-offs to the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill.
If you have not read Alison's book yet then I recommend you do. It's a fascinating read and highlights how far GlaxoSmithKline went to suppress information regarding their best-selling antidepressant drug Paxil/Seroxat.
