Paxil has been approved for unlimited use for HOW MANY YEARS? Today, a warning letter is being sent to doctors.

What is wrong with this picture?

And what was GSK's marketshare during these intervening years?

Antidepressant drug Paxil is actually causing unfortunate side effects according to various reports from its users, clinical trials and different publications such as http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com . Thus, it is important to report to your doctor your health condition upon taking this drug. It is also helpful to inform others on Paxilís harmful nature to avoid more untoward incidents like birth defects, psychosis and birth defects.

Pharma does it again. But they have made their profit and when the lawsuit comes, they will settle out of court for a samll part of those profits, and do the same with their next faulty, fraudulent product. Thats how Pharma business operates.

Just today I wrote to a 14 yr old girl on Yahoo Answers about Paxil. She just started taking it and was wondering if it's safe. I am still amazed doctors are giving these to children. That's the second one since last night that I wrote to.

There is indeed a high risk for suicide for Paxil users. This is especially true for users younger than 24 years old. You can check it out at http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-side... .

The Pharmafia has the CDC and FDA in its money pocket and gets approval to EXPERIMENT on consumers to see what side effects take place. No need for costly, time consuming safety studies, just take it to the streets.

Paxil does increases the risk of having suicidal thoughts for young Paxil users. It is imperative that if the person is taking Paxil, there should be someone to monitor their progress. If they are having suicidal thoughts then it should be reported immediately to their attending physician. The FDA also advises the doctors prescribing Paxil to discuss thoroughly the side effects of the drug to the patient. You can read the article at this site http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-fda-... .

There are many side effects associated with Paxil and suicide is one of them. There were reports that young adults using Paxil especially ages 24 and younger have higher risk for suicide. The FDA has even indicated that Paxil users under 24 years old should be monitored while they are taking the drug. You can read all about it at http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-fda-... .

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

First FDA approves based on WHAT? Then they discover serious side effects? Who's NOT doing their job?

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

typical of an FDA APPROVED product. It just gives Pharma free test subjects to maim and kill.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
