RADIO PHONE IN - IRISH LISTENERS DISCUSS SEROXAT/PAXIL WITHDRAWAL AND BIRTH DEFECTS
Two previously unheard audio files for you...at least I had never heard them before yesterday. They are from an Irish radio station and went out in 2009.
RADIO BROADCAST 2009 - LISTENERS DISCUSS SEROXAT/PAXIL ADDICTION AND BIRTH DEFECTS - **INCLUDING PROF DAVID HEALY
RADIO BROADCAST 2009 - LISTENERS DISCUSS SEROXAT/PAXIL WITHDRAWAL
It's quite interesting to listen to these two audio files. A radio show discussed Seroxat and birth defects, the response was so overwhelming that the radio host had another phone-in the following day. Not one caller phoned in to defend the drug, in fact all the callers told of their horrific withdrawal problems with Seroxat...something the company, GlaxoSmithKline, deny. It's also interesting to hear a caller claim that talk therapy works so much better than medication. Talk therapy [counselling] was offered by GlaxoSmithKline Australia back in 2002. They launched an initiative called the "APlus Project" whereby patients were offered Seroxat [known as Aropax in Australia] - they were also offered counselling...on the proviso that they continued taking their medication, if they didn't then the offer of counselling was withdrawn. More HERE, HERE and HERE.
If you, or you know anyone suffering with Seroxat withdrawal, please read the following post - "GSK's Andrew Witty In Patient Aftercare Snub."
