New Site - Paxil Harms Children

New site that deserves a mention. The Cannucks have had a raw deal regarding justice from GSK. Hopefully the author of this site will bring about awareness.

Here is the blurb from the homepage:

I have started this website to bring awareness forward regarding paxil,and the company that manufactures paxil, GlaxoSmithKline. My desire is to disclose the corruption within the walls of GlaxoSmithKline, as well as their lack of accountability to Canadian people.

GlaxoSmithKline manufacturers and markets drugs in Canada, yet they hold no accountability to Canadians. Why is that? People taking paxil today are the clinical trials. Damage to those taking paxil long term is just now starting to surface. What will become of our children who are being prescribed this medication at a young age while their brains are developing? Paxil is being prescribed off label because there is no long-term clinical trial. Off label should be explained as "your child is being used as a guinea pig". How many parents would not use this medication if they were told the truth, the harm paxil could do to their child? Not many I think.

It amazes me that this medication is still being prescribed to our children today. If GlaxoSmithKline hid the clinical data on paxil, what else are they hiding from the public? Should Canadians feel comfortable that a huge pharmaceutical manufactures and markets here, and are not held accountable for any wrongdoing? I'm not comfortable with it, nor should any other Canadian be.

Please contact me if you would like a guest post considered for publication on my blog.
