Always wondered how a drug can pass safety trials with flying colors and then shown to cause toxic side effects after sale to the public. Like Vioxx. Or how Paxil was deemed safe but seemed to cause an epidemic of teen suicides after its release.
This is a 16 minute video that purports to expose how drug companies conduct their safety trials. The country already found out the hard way how the corruption of the banksters in the financial industry wrecked our economy. This is about
drug companies marketing their antidepressants but I am sure their tactics are similar for the other drugs they sell. www.cchr.org/videos/marketing-of-madness/psychotropics-on-trial.html
Say it ain’t so, Joe! Hopefully there are medical professionals out there in the forum who can explain that this is an exaggerated parody that does not really reflect how the world really works.
(Please, please, please do not take this as a reason to stop taking antidepressants. Stopping cold turkey can be very harmful.)
