GSK - Prescription Drugs and Other Products

Paxil/Seroxat/Aropax [1]

Manufactured, marketed, dispensed, despite GSK knowing that it could make people taking it suicidal.

Imitrex/Sumatriptan [2]

At least 43 deaths and 139 "life threatening" reactions have been linked through MedWatch reports to Imitrex [sumatriptan], a migraine drug introduced by Glaxo subsidiary Cerenex Pharmaceuticals as Imitrex after FDA approval at the end of December 1992. Reports began in 1993, less than a year after Imitrex went on the market. The company sent out "Dear Doctor" letters highlighting "drug-associated fatalities" last August. The revised label describes the death of a 41-year-old woman.

Avandia [3]

GlaxoSmithKline’s popular drug for treating type 2 diabetes, increased the risk of heart death by 64% and the risk of heart attack by 43%.

Advair [4]

The FDA says GSK's Advair and other long-acting beta 2 agonists have been associated with increased risk of severe asthma exacerbations and asthma-related death, and should carry warnings about the serious side-effects.

Lotronex [5]

FDA reviewers found that Lotronex improved symptoms in only 10% to 20% of the patients. Still, an FDA advisory committee, whose participants included a paid consultant to Glaxo, unanimously recommended approval. (The yes vote voiced by the Glaxo consultant, Dr. Arnold Wald of Pittsburgh, was invalid, agency officials say, because of his status as a temporary appointee.)

Lymerix [6]

Alleged that SmithKline violated state negligence and consumer laws by not warning of potential dangers. And they complain that Yale University may have had a conflict of interest in testing the vaccine because it stood to earn royalty payments from LYMErix sales.

Relenza [7]

Since 1999, when Relenza was approved, there have been 115 reports of psychiatric events, of which 74 were children.

Alli [8]

At 240 pounds, she thought Alli might do what dieting alone had not. On Alli, she lost ten pounds right away. Then her weight loss slowed, and the side effects began. They were so serious she ended up in the emergency room twice. "I couldn't control my bowels. I was running to the bathroom, leaving meetings, being in the car, and literally stuck," she recalled.

Cervarix [9]

A GROUP of British teenagers has launched the first legal action against the makers of a controversial ­cervical cancer jab. They have suffered symptoms ranging from paralysis and ­seizures to fatigue and muscle aches since being given the Cervarix vaccine.

Ribena [10]

Two 14-year-old New Zealand girls made the news recently when their school science project revealed that Ribena, the popular black currant drink, did not have the high levels of vitamin C it claimed to.

AZT [11] AND [12]

Orphans and babies as young as three months old have been used as guinea pigs in potentially dangerous medical experiments sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, an Observer investigation has revealed.

British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline is embroiled in the scandal. The firm sponsored experiments on the children from Incarnation Children's Centre, a New York care home that specialises in treating HIV sufferers and is run by Catholic charities.


President Mbeki's directive on 28 October 1999 that the safety of AZT be investigated on the basis that "there is a large volume of scientific evidence...that [AZT] is harmful to health" alerted the South African public to the fact that AZT is dangerously poisonous.


Combine the above with hidden studies, faked studies, ghost written studies, and huge sums of money paid to 'Key Opinion Leaders' and you have one hell of a psychopathic killer on your hands.
