A message to Mr Obama and US Congress

Don't laugh!
I just sent a message to Mr Obama at the White House site:
"I just want to remind you that the number of those who are suffering the hell because of psychdrugs like Prozac, Cymbalta, Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor - all the SSRIs and anti-psychotics - is increasing day after day.
Still the US President and congressmen don't care.
You are harming not only US citizens, harming in a hideous way that can be considered as crime against humanity, but the world population.
Will you ever consider health an important issue?
There is no other name for what these drugs are doing: crimes.
Is that all the American government has to offer?"
Why didn't anybody had the idea of telling Obama about it? I'm sure he is not aware of what is happening. Now we can wait for a change.

(How any of these politicians can claim for respect when what they do are below any ethics, dignity and their speeches are made of words, words and words that mean nothing? Still their actions destroy.)
Here, Obama's government recruiting children 7-17 years old to a clinical trial of Prozac and Cymbalta. It started in 2009 and will end in 2011. Eli-Lilly causing more victims.

For my dear Susan: you are on my mind sweetie

This is for my dear Susan who is at the hospital. I'm praying for you and I'm sure you will be back soon.

The Pope blesses the giant GlaxoSmithKline

I just visited Bob Fiddaman's blog and read this post he did about this photo:
"a photo of GlaxoSmithKline's Head of European Clinical Psychiatry, Alastair Benbow and the Pope. The photo has not been doctored, Benbow did actually meet the Pope. In Benbow's own words:..." (read more at Fid's)
I was shocked for 2 seconds but soon recovered my reason.
For those who have their lives and health ruined by paroxetine - Seroxat/Paxil/Aropax - and are Catholics it seems that the prayers will have to be done out of the churches because the GSK and, of course, shareholders, politicians and all of those who are profiting while you are suffering are praying there and the Pope are on their side.
Pray at your own home.

Hat tip to Bob, as always.

American Government recruiting children to take drugs that are not to be taken by children

I reported this clinical trial here "Eli-Lilly studies SSRIs Cymbalta and Prozac in children 7-17 years old". This clinical trial started in 2009 and will end in 2011.

About ClinicalTrials.gov

ClinicalTrials.gov offers up-to-date information for locating federally and privately supported clinical trials for a wide range of diseases and conditions. A clinical trial (also clinical research) is a research study in human volunteers to answer specific health questions. Interventional trials determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments. Observational trials address health issues in large groups of people or populations in natural settings.

ClinicalTrials.gov currently contains 98,303 trials sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, other federal agencies, and private industry. Studies listed in the database are conducted in all 50 States and in174 countries ClinicalTrials.gov receives over 50 million page views per month 65,000 visitors daily.

The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), through its National Library of Medicine (NLM), has developed this site in collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as a result of the FDA Modernization Act, which was passed into law in November 1997. See the FDA document - Guidance for Industry: Information Program on Clinical Trials for Serious or Life-Threatening Diseases and Conditions(March 2002).

You can read more about Clinicaltrial.org here.
This clinical trial started in 2009 and will end in 2011. I don't understand why do they need 3 years to test a drug that has already been tested. It would be time for the phase IV of clinical trials:

Phase IV

Phase IV trial is also known as Post Marketing Surveillance Trial. Phase IV trials involve the safety surveillance (pharmacovigilance) and ongoing technical support of a drug after it receives permission to be sold. Phase IV studies may be required by regulatory authorities or may be undertaken by the sponsoring company for competitive (finding a new market for the drug) or other reasons (for example, the drug may not have been tested for interactions with other drugs, or on certain population groups such as pregnant women, who are unlikely to subject themselves to trials). The safety surveillance is designed to detect any rare or long-term adverse effects over a much larger patient population and longer time period than was possible during the Phase I-III clinical trials. Harmful effects discovered by Phase IV trials may result in a drug being no longer sold, or restricted to certain uses: recent examples involvecerivastatin (brand names Baycol and Lipobay), troglitazone (Rezulin) and rofecoxib (Vioxx).

Source: Wikipedia.
They don't care about the fourth phase of clinical trials and even consider what patients say as "anecdotal evidence". Drugs are supposed to be on the market even if they are killing people. The sole purpose of selling medicines is making money for those powerful few who profit.
Exposing children to these drugs is criminal.

Jim Gottstein: "These drugs are so harmful that they literally kill people"


"They are really a chemical lobotomy because that is what they do in the brain."
"18 year old having heart attack from these drugs."
"People put on these drugs have a life expectancy of 25 years shorter than the general population.
These drugs are so harmful that they literally kill people."
Jim Gottstein

Jim Gottstein grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. After graduating from West Anchorage High School in 1971, he attended the University of Oregon and graduated with honors (BS, Finance) in 1974. From there he attended Harvard Law School graduating in 1978 with a J.D. degree. Mr. Gottstein's career has evolved from emphasizing business matters and public land law, with mental health representation and advocacy as an adjunct, to increasing emphasis on mental health advocacy and representation.

Since late 2002, Mr. Gottstein has devoted the bulk of his time pro bono to the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights) whose mission is to mount a strategic litigation campaign against forced psychiatric drugging and electroshock across the United States. In June of 2006, the Alaska Supreme Court decided Myers v. Alaska Psychiatric Institute, which ruled Alaska's forced drugging procedures unconstitutional. Myers has been called"the most important State Supreme Court decision" on forced drugging in 20 years.

Visit PsychRights. It seems that the vast majority of psychiatrists still didn't understand what these drugs are doing. So we need lawyers to explain them what their prescriptions are doing to their patients. Drugging children the way they are doing is unacceptable and a crime. So we need jurisprudence to deal with it.
I thank all lawyers that are committing to the health of people.
