Glaxo & The Premenstrual Collusion

You may remember a few days ago I wrote about the recent study coming out of Hamilton, Ontario regarding Paxil [Seroxat] and PMT [Pre Menstrual Tension]

The study was conducted by Dr. Meir Steiner with St. Joseph's Healthcare.

Thanks to the wonders of the internet I now have the full paper.

The study was conducted by Steiner M, Ravindran AV, Lemelledo JM, Carter D, Huang JO, Anonychuk AM, Simpson SD.

The declaration of interests [Financial Disclosure] shows what I believe to be a severe conflict of interests in this study.

First and foremost the study was funded by GlaxoSmithKline, Canada.
