Well, it seems they have now dropped that claim. Looking at the same section of their website today shows no utterance of this claim - they do still however run with:
"Depression is longer lasting or more severe than the ‘low moods’ that everyone has from time to time. It is thought to be caused by a chemical imbalance in parts of the brain. This imbalance affects your whole body and can cause emotional and physical symptoms."
During it's early promotion Seroxat/Paxil/Aropax was heavily promoted by this theory.
Good to see GSK Australia finally dropping this false claim...even if it did take them a number of years to do so years - particularly as the FDA Psychopharm Advisory Chair acknowledged in 2006 that there was no evidence for SSRI chemical imbalance.
