GSK Australia - Clearly Behind the times

"Aropax corrects the chemical imbalance and so helps relieve the symptoms of depression."

The Irish equivalent of the MHRA, the Irish Medical Board, recently banned GlaxoSmithKline from claiming that paroxetine corrects a chemical imbalance even in their patient information leaflets [HERE].

Should the Australian equivalent of the MHRA do the same or do Australians have different enzymes from Europeans?

In fact I am unsure whether or not this is the stance of the MHRA?

Is the chemical imbalance theory fact or merely a theory?

If indeed it is a theory .. and only a theory, what the hell are GSK Australia playing out by making such a false and misleading claim?, If indeed it is misleading and false?

I've wrote about this before.

Maybe an email to the TGA will help?

Subject: GSK claim - False and misleading

Dear Sir/Madam,

I wish to complain strongly about the claims GSK Australia are making on their webpage. -

They claim that:

"Aropax corrects the chemical imbalance and so helps relieve the symptoms of depression."

This is false and misleading according to this paper from Plos Medicine.

I trust you will take this matter very seriously?
