9/11-Paxil Birth Defect Case-One Year Anniversary of the Death of Baby Indiana

Why would it even be going to court? Glaxo is so stupid! They let the Donald Schell murder/suicide case go to court and look what it got them. Now they are going to do this????

Who is handling this one? Hope the attorneys are using Dr. Pal Paucher whose work has demonstrated this for a very long time.

[NOTE: This is being sent to you directly as well as being posted on our "BREAKING NEWS" section of our new website. We are posting new cases there as they come in as well..]

We just had the anniversary of 9/11. And today is the anniversary of the death of baby Indiana. And this week we will have the first Paxil Birth Defect case hit the courts.

So what do all of these have in common? PLENTY!!

Baby Indiana lost her life a year ago today due to the fact that her mother took Effexor during her pregnancy and her parents were not warned of the potentially fatal dangers involved. (Please go to one of the sites below to lend support to her family in their battle to raise awareness and also to see what happened to baby Indy.)

All antidepressants increase serotonin levels. The main function of serotonin is constriction of smooth muscle tissue – the lungs and broncial tubes, the intestines, uterus, and the major organs of the body.

Serotonin was originally given to put pregnant women into labor so is it any wonder that Indy and so many other babies born to mothers on antidepressants are either miscarried or born early?

When serotonin levels go too high it results in Serotonin Syndrome which can be fatal producing death via multiple organ failure as the organs constrict and shut down as happened with baby Indy’s lungs.

Now the 9/11 connection: EVERY WEEK IN THIS COUNTRY WE LOSE AS MANY LIVES AS WE LOST IN THE 9/11 TRAGEDY TO ADVERSE REACTIONS FROM PRESCRIPTION DRUGS PRESCRIBED VIA FDA GUIDELINES – NOT ABUSED, BUT GIVEN AND TAKEN ACCORDING TO FDA GUIDELINES.

Why, are we at war in the Middle East over so few deaths (not that they did not matter or were any less important) as opposed to the thousands upon thousands of needless and senseless deaths that continue to happen every week in America due to these deadly prescription drugs that the world tends to ignore?!!! This is an ongoing, never ending 9/11 tragedy striking every week for years before 9/11 and for many years now since 9/11.

Who are the real terrorists? And why have we not declared war on them?

Now this week another family will go into court to fight the battle their little one cannot fight on his/her own. The birth defects have been known of for some time in medical science, but not shared with the parents of those who should be watching for them.

And just how many are there? We have NO idea. Most families are dealing with them with no idea even yet what the cause is. Last year I was speaking with a father about a business matter who explained he could not speak long because his 15 year old daughter was born with a hole in her heart and he had to run her to a doctor’s appointment.

I immediately asked which antidepressant his wife was taking during pregnancy with his daughter. Without hesitation he turned to his wife and asked, “Honey, which antidepressant were you on when you carried ________? Paxil. It was Paxil remember? That was when you had me start taking it.”

Of course I told him he needed to look up the FDA warnings on the drug and heart defects at birth due to the drug. I then gave him the numbers of several attorneys and explained that his daughter has every right to file for this terrible problem that has so affected her life for the past 15 years and will for the rest of her life that will be cut short as a result of the damage done by the drug.

So how many other 15 year olds are there out there dealing with these birth defects even though they have no knowledge of this being a side effect of their mother’s medication? And how many others like Indy did not survive their damages? We need to know. Hopefully this case finally making its way into court will stir up enough publicity to wake up enough people to give these children and their families answers.

Test Paxil case hits court next week

GlaxoSmithKline and a bunch of plaintiffs’ lawyers will have their eyes on a Philadelphia court next week. That court is hosting a bellwether liability case over claims that the antidepressant Paxil causes birth defects. Glaxo faces some 600 lawsuits with similar claims. “These cases are sort of like the canary in the coal mine,” law professor David Logan told Bloomberg. “The early cases set the parameters for any global settlement negotiations.”

In this first case, plaintiff Michelle David claims that Paxil caused heart defects in her son Lyam Kilker and that Glaxo failed to warn about the drug’s potential to cause birth defects. As you know, FDA asked Glaxo in 2005 to update Paxil’s label with information on heart defects in infants. Glaxo says the FDA’s action doesn’t prove that Paxil causes birth defects; its own studies after the warning “have been inconclusive with mixed results,” the company says.

But David’s attorney says that Glaxo failed to follow up on early animal studies that suggested Paxil might cause birth defects, and that the company designed Paxil studies to use low doses of the drug to avoid triggering adverse events. “In 1998, GSK internally concluded that it had received an ‘alarming’ number of abnormal pregnancy adverse events for Paxil and failed to disclose this information to the FDA, physicians or the public,” the lawyers said in a court filing. We’ll be hearing much more from both sides next week.
