Seroxat - The Main Culprits

I have a complete lack of respect for the MHRA and Glaxosmithkline, both of whom should be charged with various despicable acts against humanity. It is my belief that they have known about the dangers of Seroxat in both adults and children for some considerable time, yet both have robustly denied any link to Seroxat and addiction or more importantly the link that shows Seroxat is a drug that can cause another human being to take their own life... or the life of another.

The internet has given rise to a ever increasing amount of websites, blogs, forums and news articles relating to Seroxat induced suicides and murders. One such so was the highly informative website, Paxil Protest. A site that was a wealth of information and clearly showed how Glaxosmithkline knowingly suppressed information so they could market this multi billion dollar poison to the unsuspecting public. Unfortunately, the Paxil Protest site was taken down sometime ago. It is alleged that Glaxosmithkline paid a small fortune to the web author to remove the content... one has to ask the question why they would fear such a site.

Luckily, for those who are still fighting Glaxosmithkline through the courts, an archive of the Paxil Protest site still remains and many articles of interest can still be viewed. One only has to trawl through the archives to see why Glaxosmithkline wanted the site permanently removed from prying eyes... it was of course to protect the drug Seroxat (known as Paxil in the USA) and to also protect those who gave it a clean bill of health, agencies such as the MHRA (UK) and the FDA (USA). The archives to the site can be found HERE. This is the site that Glaxosmithkline, the FDA and the MHRA do NOT want you to see. Indeed, there are many Members of Parliament who would not want you or I to see this site either.

The main culprits

For me, I have found that years of communications with the MHRA has been a complete waste of time. For an agency that boasts of its transparency they do very little to safeguard human health. The recent TGN1412 drug trial debacle and subsequent investigation clearly shows how useless the medicines regulatory system is here in the UK. Much of the communication I have had with the MHRA is posted on my blog. More recently, campaigner Matthew Holford has created a blog with correspondence between himself and the MHRA. They either blind you with science or refuse to answer specific questions because of certain 'exemptions', exemptions that they make up themselves. In a Glaxosmithkline like move, the MHRA now carry copyright notices on any Freedom of Information answers they send out. Basically, the Freedom of Information you or I request is for your or my eyes only. This is a recent move and one that only highlights just how transparent the MHRA want to be. They would have you believe that the word 'Freedom' DOES NOT mean 'the state of being under control and being able to do whatever one wishes'. In my eyes the word 'freedom' means 'without restriction', The MHRA, by throwing a copyright notice on such FOI requests, wish to control that restriction. They won't do it. Both you and I have a right to relay information that is of public interest and I find their recent move to try and 'gag' members of the public affects both yours and my civil liberties.

Prof. Kent Woods, MHRA Chief Executive, who as recently ago as 27th September 2005 emphasised to the working group on patient reporting 'the importance of patient reporting for enhancing medicines safety monitoring and for involving patients and members of the public in medicines safety regulation'. Once again, it seems the MHRA use words that mean the opposite to both you and I. Importance is defined as: the quality or state of being important; consequence; significance.

Let me just reiterate what Prof. Kent Woods emphasised to the working group on September 27th 2005 - the importance of patient reporting for enhancing medicines safety monitoring and for involving patients and members of the public in medicines safety regulation. Such a broad statement, I'm sure you'll agree?

Why then, after 7 emails to Prof. Kent Woods from myself and a further 6 from another fellow Seroxat campaigner did he issue the following statement? ' I have already given you a full account of the Agency's position in this matter and there is nothing to add to it. This, after I had asked him whether or not he still stood by his original letter to me regarding the findings of Dr Peter Breggin's damning reports of GSK that I had sent him. Hardly seems Prof. Kent Woods is emphasising the 'importance' of patient reporting with the statement ' I have already given you a full account of the Agency's position in this matter and there is nothing to add to it. ' does it? So despite evidence that Glaxosmithkline suppressed clinical trial results, the Chief Executive of the MHRA, Prof. Kent Woods stands firm.

The MHRA as we know should be disbanded. Messrs Woods, Breckenridge and Hudson should be prosecuted for crimes to humanity. To suggest that they didn't know is absurd. There are many others within the MHRA that have known - these are merely puppets in what is a clandestine organisation that does everything but 'Safeguard Human Health'
