Just how much protection does the FDA provide us?

All of you are asking, “Just how much protection does the FDA provide us?” Well let’s do a little deep dive to answer that question.
THE SORDID HISTORY: The mother drug for this group of SSRI Antidepressants, Prozac (touted to target serotonin selectively), hit the market the end of 1987. That was after Dr. John Virapen bribed the approval of the drug in Sweden at the request of Eli Lilly knowing that if Sweden, with a reputation for strict drug approval guidelines, approved Prozac then other countries would approve it as well without looking at the drug as closely as they might have. (See ref #1 below for his full confession) And that would pave the way for the approval of all the future serotonergic antidepressants Pharma had in the pipeline.
Add to that the change in FDA policy by the drug peddling monster, President GHW Bush, past head of both Eli Lilly & the CIA & a notorious Pharma lobbyist who had to be threatened to get him to stop lobbying for Pharma while serving as Vice President. Bush’s change was to allow FDA approval for drugs tested only 5 – 6 weeks!
That FDA approval came in spite of the fact that Eli Lilly’s leading scientist, Leigh Thompson, had the scientists under him come to him with concerns that Prozac was actually CAUSING sucide. He responded in a memo that Lilly could “not afford to lose Prozac” and he instructed them to instead tell concerned physicians & loved ones of the dead that the suicides were caused by their “underlying depression”. (Yes, he put that in writing! That memo was found by our attorneys in discovery & used to prove wrongful death cases! And 100s of cases were settled.)
Now in December of this year the supposed “serotonin selective antidepressants” will have been out 35 years!!!! But you are about to see just how ABSOLUTELY AMAZING that is as you see the interview below on a class action suit just filed against an over the counter antacid drug out for 40 years whose makers knew it caused cancer & marketed it anyway! Then when you see a very similar drug to the SSRIs was pulled after only being out 7 years you be even more amazed these drugs are still on the market. When that drug, now illegal, but closer in action to the SSRIs than any other drug, was pulled from the market only 7 years after its approval! That is the same drug some on antidepressants actually test out as being on it instead of an “antidepressant”. That is also the drug all law
enforcement officers hope they never have the misfortune of running into someone who is under the influence of that drug. But with that drug it was law enforcement & judges that pushed for the drug to be pulled from the market due to the incredible violence it was causing in society. The AMA had little to no concern. Does that sound familiar as your doctors turn a blind eye to all of your reactions? The drug I am talking about is phencycledine, PCP, also known as “Angel Dust” & introduced as a dissociative anesthetic. It is the mother drug of Spravato (Ketamine).
A dissociative anesthetic puts you under anesthesia but allows for movement by the patient during that anesthetic state. In 1991 during my very first testimony on Prozac before the FDA Advisory Committee (See video of testimony in ref #2 below) I shared the brain wave patterns from my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! Those were brain waves of a 31 year old patient suffering memory loss, depression & fatigue after being on Prozac for six months.
Those brain waves (See brain waves in ref #3 below) demonstrated the patient was in an anesthetic sleep state & dreaming while talking to those who were taking those brain waves. The brain waves basically indicated “NO ONE WAS HOME!” That is no one in a conscious state anyway. Those FDA panel members had to know the minute they saw those brain waves what they were looking at was a dissociative anesthetic state! But as it turned out what was clouding their judgement that day was that they all had vested interests in the drug maker, with one panel member alone, Washington State’s Dr. David Dunner, involved in a $32 Million deal with the drug maker, Eli Lilly, at the time!
A class action lawsuit against the over the counter anti-acid drug Zantac out for 40 years. The lawsuit is over the fact the drug maker concealed for 40 years the fact they knew Zantac could cause cancer but they never warned! Sounding familiar?
Attorney Brent Wisner Tells RFK, Jr.: Drugmakers Knew Zantac Caused Cancer But Sold It Anyway for 40 Years
In an interview on ‘RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast,’ award-winning attorney Brent Wisner talked with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. about litigation to hold Zantac manufacturers accountable.

The once widely used heartburn drug Zantac was the topic of a recent episode of the “RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast.”
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman and chief legal counsel of Children’s Health Defense, interviewed Brent Wisner, an award-winning mass tort litigator with Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman, who is representing plaintiffs who allegedly developed cancer after taking Zantac. The plaintiffs are suing the pharmaceutical companies that sold the drug.
Kennedy and Wisner are colleagues. They worked together during the landmark lawsuit Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto Company, the first Roundup cancer lawsuit to proceed to trial. The jury awarded groundskeeper Johnson $289.2 million.
“Brent Wisner arguably is the best lawyer in the country,” said Kennedy. “He’s won every award that you can possibly win for litigation. He is a versatile lawyer and he’s an extraordinary performer. He has a chemical link to jurors like I’ve never seen before.”
Wisner is now working to hold accountable the makers of Zantac for allegedly concealing knowledge of a cancer-causing ingredient in the drug.
Zantac, an over-the-counter medication, was withdrawn from the market in 2020 when it was determined that it contained the human carcinogen NDMA -(nitrosodimethylamine).
Now, pharmaceutical companies GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Pfizer and Boehringer Ingelheim are facing class-action lawsuits from people who developed cancer after taking the drug.
Wisner claims that the product was sold for decades with the knowledge that NDMA caused harm. He said, “We’re talking 40 years they sold this product and they knew it. And we have the documents.…I mean, we have documents where they straight up say, ‘this stuff causes this cancer.’”
Wisner explained:
“NDMA is a very, very potent human carcinogen discovered in the thirties, in the development of rocket fuel. And it literally has no purpose in our world, except for the fact that it causes cancer. It’s actually used in laboratory experiments to induce cancer in animals.
“It’s probably something that has caused an innumerable number of people’s cancers, because it was such a widely used product.”
The cancers that MDNA are more likely to cause include those of the bladder, liver and stomach, as well as colorectal cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer, said Wisner.
“It’s a complex scientific inquiry, but we think that we have the science to really push those cancers forward,” he said. “And we’re litigating them actively right now in our proceeding in California, which is exciting.”
Kennedy pointed out that people can still become plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit.
“If people who are listening to this podcast — or people who are friends or family of those who are listening to this podcast — have any of those kind of cancers and can show that they took Zantac for a period of time, they have an opportunity to … become part of this litigation,” he said.
Wisner is confident the litigation will be successful, although he warned it will take some time.
“These things take many years and involve many, many thousands and thousands of people,” he said. “But, you know, we have a good track record of taking care of our clients like we did in the Roundup litigation. And we’re planning to do the same here.”
A California state court judge has scheduled the first Zantac trial to take place on Oct. 10.

The Man Who BOUGHT Prozac’s Approval
#3 Brain Waves:


A WARNING VOICE FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE: Tonight February 8, 1990, 32 years ago now, one of America’s greatest Rock stars, Del Shannon, was murdered by Eli Lilly & their deadly SSRI antidepressant, Prozac & his doctor who lied to him about what he was taking.

After kissing his wife goodby as she left for the market, he walked back into his office, sat at his desk, put a gun to his head & shot himself after only 15 days on this deadly drug. This is the same amount of time doctors are now recommending that Prozac or one of its first clones, Luvox, be used at an even higher dose to treat the virus which has turned our world upside down the past two years!

Please share this with your loved ones so that they have this warning! As loving & caring a man as Del was, who often himself counseled those who were suicidal, he would want the world shouting this warning to everyone!

THIS DAY IN HISTORY REPORTS: Shannon shot himself in his Santa Clarita, California, home on February 8, 1990. Shannon’s widow would later file a high-profile lawsuit against Eli Lilly, the manufacturer of the antidepressant Prozac, which Shannon had begun taking shortly before his suicide. That suit was eventually dropped (And WHY are cases like this dropped? I know exactly why I believe it was dropped!), but the case brought early attention to the still-unresolved question of the possible connection between suicidal ideation and SSRIs, the class of drugs to which Prozac belongs.

Another mass shooting with nine more confirmed dead this morning in Indianapolis where it all began with Eli Lilly & their introduction of the first ssri, prozac…

Find below the evidence antidepressants are the cause for all this violence.
UPDATE: Indianapolis FedEx shooting was yet another medication-induced mass murder/suicide. Look at this history to see he was arrested for being suicidal a year ago for planning a suicide by cop…
“Police identified the suspect in a shooting at an Indianapolis FedEx facility as 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole of Indiana. Police said Friday afternoon that Hole was last an employee at the facility in 2020. It’s unclear whether he quit or was terminated from the job.
“Investigators are searching a home in Indianapolis associated with Hole and have seized evidence, including desktop computers and other electronic media, the officials told The Associated Press.
“It remains unclear why Hole shot and killed the eight workers at the facility near Indianapolis International Airport. But this was not the first time he’d encountered police.
“Indianapolis police had confiscated a gun and took Hole into custody last year following suicide threats. An IMPD report from March 3, 2020, references a mental health check for suicidal tendencies and lists Hole as being arrested. Hole had purchased a gun and talked about suicide by police, a situation in which a person prompts police to kill them, according to the report.”
Here is the evidence we have posted on our main website DrugAwareness.org explaining it all…
SCHOOL & MASS SHOOTINGS: The Evidence Antidepressants Are The Cause


Mother Throws Her 2 Children, Then Jumps 9 Stories to Their Deaths

Three more innocent victims  dead due to antidepressants, with little doubt in my mind after documenting these cases for 30 years. These drugs, which the mother would have been given as “help” increase serotonin which causes argumentative behavior, suicidal & homicidal ideation, violent crime & violent suicide plus causing patients to act out their nightmares in a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD). Of those being diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder 86% are on antidepressants even though RBD has long been known as a drug withdrawal state & known to include both suicide & homicide. And that is why patients must wean so very slowly to avoid going into this dangerous withdrawal state.
Don’t ask why the husband did not stop this. In another case in PA a man shot his wife, her teen daughter, her parents & himself only 30 minutes after speaking with a detective who saw absolutely no sign this man was about to do this. But to top that the wife’s job was taking adverse reaction reports on the antidepressant her husband was on, Effexor! Why would she not have seen it coming?! That was the first antidepressant to add “homicidal ideation” to the side effects.
How many of these does our country need to see before we wake up to the toll this serotonin deception is taking on our world-such senseless loss of life?!
How sadly ironic that she went to Brown where Dr. Peter Kramer taught when he wrote the book that made Prozac a household name & the dean of Brown sat on the Board of Eli Lilly, the manufacturer of Prozac, the mother drug of all these nightmares.

LOVE THE ONION! Turning truth into humor to wake us up!

“They’ve bought off the cops, they’ve bought off the politicians, and their power is growing every day.” [AND they have also drugged the doctors, cops & politicians!]
So Remember: “Every time you go to your doctor demanding Concerta or Lunesta  or once-daily Singulair, you’re fueling a dangerous  $350 billion industry that kills thousands of innocent people each year,” said John, it’s a Georgetown University sociologist who specializes in prescription drug-related crime.”

Pfizer Kingpin Gunned Down In Ongoing Prescription Drug Cartel Turf War

The death of El Loco could bring chaos to the Pfizer cartel’s ranks.

NEW YORK—In the latest of an increasingly violent series of murders linked to international prescription drug trafficking, infamous Pfizer cartel leader Philip “El Loco” Cox was gunned down Thursday by rivals from the Bristol-Myers Squibb organization, the FBI has confirmed.

The 63-year-old Pfizer boss, who became the nation’s top pharma kingpin after the 2009 toppling of Wyeth ringleader Richard Russell, was reportedly shot five times in the chest by sales reps from Bristol-Myers Squibb, part of an ongoing turf war to control the lucrative pharmaceutical market.

“The murder of El Loco is a direct result of the escalating struggle over supply routes and territory between Pfizer and the Squibbs,” said FBI spokesman Jeff Lyons, using the nickname given to the rival cartel’s operatives, who allegedly woke Cox up in the middle of the night and killed him in front of his wife and children. “From lipid-lowering agents like Crestor to hard diabetes drugs like Avandia, everybody’s using this stuff, some of them as young as 35 or 40. The market’s worth billions, and it’s a bloody business.”

“Prescription drug traffickers are no longer just sending their reps into clinics to pressure doctors,” Lyons added. “Now they’re kidnapping the ones who don’t prescribe their product, decapitating them, and rolling their heads through hospital hallways.”


“El Loco” Cox’s murder is believed to have resulted from a long-running dispute over heart-medication distribution cells in the Northeast, where in the past year at least 500 people have been killed as the warring syndicate’s fight to push Lipitor and Pravachol, their rival products. However, the FBI told reporters that revenge might also have played a role.

“The Bureau believes this assassination may have been ordered as an act of retaliation by the Fat Man himself,” said Lyons, referring to the notorious “pharmo” Doug Kirkendall, who is currently head of marketing at Bristol-Myers Squibb. “Last year, his wife was found hanging from a telephone pole and smeared with a prescription-only topical psoriasis cream—the signature threat of the Pfizer cartel.”

According to law enforcement officials, the blow to Pfizer could create an opening for the New Jersey-based Merck and Johnson & Johnson cartels to move in and expand their operations. Both groups have lately recruited more biochemical engineers, drug marketers, and family doctors into their ranks, with Merck burning down several Walgreens pharmacies in October following a pricing dispute.

Many experts have argued that responsibility for the violence ultimately lies with U.S. consumers, whose insatiable demand for designer drugs has made big pharma so incredibly profitable.

“Every time you go to your doctor demanding Concerta or Lunesta or once-daily Singulair, you’re fueling a dangerous $350 billion industry that kills thousands of innocent people each year,” said John Cotts, a Georgetown University sociologist who specializes in prescription-drug-related crime. “They’ve bought off the cops, they’ve bought off the politicians, and their power is growing every day.”


1991 FDA Antidepressant Hearing: Le Anne Westover Testifies of Husband Del Shannon’s Prozac Suicide

Le Anne Westover - Dell Shannon

Le Anne Westover & Husband, Charles (Del Shannon)

Everyone needs to hear these testimonies presented to the FDA in September of 1991 on the subject antidepressants causing suicide and violence. The FDA chose to ignore these testimonies that day leading to many more deaths since. My dear friend featured here, Le Anne Westover, lost her husband Charles, also known as the popular singer Del Shannon, in only two weeks to a violent Prozac-induced suicide. His senseless death, along with so many others documented both in these testimonies and this database www.ssristories.NET should NEVER be forgotten!!!

Please listen to Le Anne’s testimony here:

The following is a transcript of LeAnne’s testimony to the FDA that day:

DR. CASEY: Next is Mrs. Del Shannon, please.

MS. SHANNON: Lee Ann Westover.

DR. CASEY: Excuse me, are you Mrs. Del Shannon?

MS. SHANNON: I am Mrs. Del Shannon, yes. I am the widow Del Shannon. My husband 1990. On the evening of of Charles Westover, also known as was given Prozac on January 24 of February 8, 1990, he killed himself. I am told his death was instantaneous, but I believe his death actually began the moment he took his first dose of Prozac.

Before Prozac, my husband was very involved with people, our family, and his work. He was very much in charge of his business. But within days after he started taking Prozac I noticed a personality change in him. He showed signs of restlessness, akathisia, agitation, pacing, and his appearance was very drawn. He developed severe insomnia, extreme fatigue, chills, racing heart, dry mouth, and upset stomach. His hands would shake uncontrollably at times.

This really alarmed him. I would ask him what was wrong and his only reply was, “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

At this time my husband’s career was better than ever. He was just finishing a new album and was at his utmost creative peak. Many good things were happening in his life.

On January 24, he saw a doctor for counseling, as changes were happening rapidly. Due to these changes, he went to a doctor because he was experiencing some stress. He was given Prozac. Two weeks later I found him dead in our home. He told me, when he came home from the doctor, that he was given a new drug, “It’s not even a drug, it’s a chemical, it’s very safe. It’s supposed to help me over the hump I’m in.” The drug was Prozac.

Charles was very much against suicide. He counseled people against suicide. To him, and I quote “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” I want you to know suicide was totally out of character for my husband.

There was no note. The day he died he had made appointments for afternoon and evening. He had booked future and no kiss goodbye.

On February 8, my daughter and I were going to the market. He asked for some vitamins and other items that he wanted from the market. He kissed me, smiled, and we said, “See you later.” There was absolutely no warning of suicide or anything violent.

I know with absolute certainty that if Charles had any idea of the side effects of Prozac he would never have taken it. This drug is most assuredly responsible for any torment or suffering and the eventual suicide of my husband. I want people to be aware of what can happen when you take this drug Prozac.

Thank you.

DR CASEY : Thank you.

Rest in Peace Del…you are not forgotten!

25 Years After Wesbecker’s Rampage Another Prozac Tragedy in Louisville, KY

Maddie Yates

Maddie Yates, Teen’s Prozac-induced suicide

Yet another Louisville antidepressant-induced tragedy but certainly not the only one over the past 25 years. How very sad and tragic that they continue this many years later … Maddie Yates, a teen in Louisville, KY has committed suicide on Prozac after posting online that she was going to do so. Louisville, KY, of all places – right where Joseph Wesbecker, on Prozac, went on the 1989 big shooting spree at the printing company where he worked in Louisville, KY thus blowing open the controversy about Prozac and violence.

From my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare, we read about this case: “On September 14, 1989, Joseph Wesbecker blew the lid off the Pandora’s box unveiling one of the most terrible of the paradoxical reactions to Prozac when he walked into his former place of employment, Louisville, Kentucky’s Standard Gravure Corp., took the elevator to the third floor, and as the elevator doors opened, started firing with an AK-47 semiautomatic assault rifle. In what authorities called a ‘blood bath you don’t get over,’ Wesbecker took eight lives and wounded twelve others before taking his own life.”

When the makers of Prozac were sued by the surviving family members of those who lost their lives along with some of the survivors of the shooting spree we were not told, but later learned, the case was a set up to make Prozac appear completely safe and not the instigator of this blood bath. Apparently it worked well in Louisville, KY with few hearing that Judge John Potter was brave enough to spend the next two years proving this case in his courtroom was settled by Lilly in the middle of the trial and then allowed to go to a not guilty verdict. Why? So that Lilly could go on national television bragging that Prozac had been found to be safe and not the cause of this tragic violence.

No one ever knew just how much was paid out on the case, but in one instance Judge Potter found indication of one survivor getting about $50 Million. We do know that it has been reported that during the decade that Mitch Daniels, now the head of Purdue where we recently had another bizarre case of a violent murder by a young man suffering depression, headed Eli Lilly there was a total of ONE BILLION paid out to keep all this controversy about Prozac and violence and suicide quiet.

So here is yet another tragic and senseless death as a result of that silence TWENTY-FIVE years later!!! Although reported as a suicide I say this was NOT suicide! This was murder, premeditated murder! And I will explain why it qualifies as such….

Who is responsible for Maddie’s death and why do I call it a “premeditated” murder?

#1 Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac, who were told by their own scientists BEFORE Prozac went on the market that the drug itself was actually CAUSING suicide and chose to ignore those warnings and instead chose to blame the suicides on the patient’s “underlying disorder.”

#2 The FDA for issuing the strongest warning possible for increased suicidal ideation for anyone under the age of 25 who takes ANY antidepressant they have ever approved and ANY antidepressant they approve in the future except for Prozac which works like all the rest of them.

#3 The doctor who was stupid enough to give a child this drug when it is in the same family of drugs as all the others with Black Box Warnings for suicide. What is wrong with reading just a little research when a life is at stake – especially a life like Maddie’s that had only just begun?

Everything Maddie lists as her reasons for her death are all commonly reported side effects of antidepressants – the feeling like you are evil or have something evil inside you, cursing and saying hurtful things you do not even remember saying and certainly do not mean to say, and seeing no hope of ever getting better since these drugs only make depression worse, instead of better, because the hypothesis behind the drugs is backwards. Serotonin is NOT low in depression, but elevated. What is low is a person’s ability to metabolize serotonin – exactly what antidepressants are designed to do thus leading to long term worsening of depression.

I repeat, this was premeditated murder and it needs to stop!

I am so sick and tired of seeing these! For 25 years I have spent every penny I had trying to stop it, to get the truth out before more die, but the almighty $$$$ is far too important to those responsible not only for the death of Maddie Yates, but far too many others! How many more are we going to allow them to kill? Yes, I said “allow” because we are condoning these deaths by allowing these drugs to remain on the market and to continue their ridiculous advertising of them.

Louisville Male High School in Louisville, Ky., is mourning the death of student Maddie Yates, who committed suicide after posting a heartbreaking video explaining her decision to YouTube.

Jefferson County Public Schools temporarily shut down student access to Twitter and YouTube after learning of Yates’ passing and the video she made.

She was planning to participate in a fundraising walk to raise money and awareness for suicide prevention in memory of her friend, Brianna Berrier, who also committed suicide almost exactly one year before Yates’ passing.

She was planning to participate in a fundraising walk to raise money and awareness for suicide prevention in memory of her friend, Brianna Berrier , who also committed suicide almost exactly one year before Yates' passing.

Yates and two friends visited Berrier’s grave on April 12, the anniversary of her death, just days before Yates took her own life.

By her social media activities, Yates seemed a bright, happy youth, posting smiling pictures with friends and maintaining a makeup channel on YouTube.

In the above video, she encourages kids to be accepting of others and preaches the importance of staying strong and optimistic.

These videos exist in stark contrast to Yates’ final video, simply entitled “Important,” where she speaks emotionally of her love for others and declares herself “not a good person.”

A still from the final video.

The video is a heart-shattering look into her struggle with depression and anxiety. On her decision to commit suicide, she said, “I just don’t see how this is a bad idea,” and described it as the difference between deciding to jump from a burning building or staying in it and dying “a slow, excruciating death.”

“I’ve been like this for so long,” she said, “and there’s still a chance that the worst day might be coming.”

Yates was a writer, some of her work and biographies hint at her struggles.

Her Booksie bio contains the Doug Stanhope quote: “Life is like a movie, if you’ve sat through more than half of it and it’s sucked every second so far, it probably isn’t gonna get great right at the end and make it all worthwhile. None should blame you for walking out early.”

In a poem posted to her Teen Ink page called “Falling Asleep,” she envisions herself as a “cold dead body.”

Time Released Prozac for Dogs Approved in the UK

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy (www.drugawareness.org):

And who did they pay to “cook the books” on this research?!! Was the same
researcher who just plead guilty to falsifying research for GlaxcoThe initial
studies done by Lilly on dogs and cats demonstrated that the animals given

Prozac began to growl and hiss within days on the drug and the behavior
continued until several days AFTER withdrawal of the medication. Those results
would indicate a contraindication for Prozac being given to dogs as they
have for close to two decades now.

The only thing new with Reconcile, the name of the drug in the US, is
that it is a time release Prozac. All the time released change does is make
it FAR MORE difficult to withdraw from. If your dog happens to be a
rapid metabolizer then he/she will metabolize the drug faster than expected and
go into withdrawal before the next dose is given. And according to FDA warnings
you could have a dog that could be going into a withdrawal reactions
of suicide, hostility, or psychosis. . . . We need to do a survey to see
how many dogs are running in front of mack trucks and trains instead of just
chasing cars once they begin taking this medication. 🙂 🙂
🙂 . . . . Back to the seriousness of this issue, this is an
extremely dangerous way for dogs and humans or any other living creature to take
a drug!


At the time, Steve Connell, Eli Lilly’s manager of consumer services for
companion animal health, said that more than 10million US dogs exhibit strange
symptoms from being left alone too long. [Hmmmmm and how many humans and other
living creatures exhibit strange symptoms from being left alone too

‘Lilly research shows that 10.7million, or up to 17 per cent, of US dogs
suffer from separation anxiety,’ he said. ‘We’re thrilled that our first product
for dogs can help restore the human-pet bond.’

He said research showed that 73 per cent of dogs taking Reconcile and
undergoing therapy showed better behaviour within eight weeks, compared to dogs

receiving therapy alone.


A dog’s life set to get easier with once-a-day pet Prozac to treat

By Daniel Martin
Last updated at 8:58 AM on 22nd February

A dog version of the anti-depressant Prozac has been approved for sale to
British pet owners.

The one-a-day tablet, which tastes of beef, is said to help cure ‘canine
compulsive disorder’ and ‘separation anxiety’ brought on by owners’ long
absences during the day.

Symptoms include poor behaviour, whimpering or tail-chasing.

Spaniel looking sad

Down in the doggy dumps:
Once-a-day chewable tablet, which tastes of beef, has been launched in the US to
help dogs beat depression

The drug, called Reconcile, is also designed to curb the compulsive pacing,
chewing and dribbling which its makers claim is a result of depression brought
on by their owners’ long absences.

The anti-depressant Prozac has been used to cure compulsive behaviour in
humans, and works by increasing the brain’s levels of serotonin, a ‘happiness’

produced improvements in behaviour within eight weeks.

Eli Lilly, the drug’s US manufacturer, said: ‘Treatment for companion animals
is a relatively new area for us.’

They point to research which shows that as many as 8 per cent of dogs suffer
from canine compulsive disorder.


Pick me up: Prozac

Critics say dogs are now being diagnosed with ‘lifestyle’ illnesses so that
drugs can be marketed to treat them.

Roger Mugford, an animal psychologist, said: ‘Most breakthroughs in dog
behaviour are achieves by carrying a tidbit and using it wisely, not by

Reconcile has now been granted a license by the UK‘s Veterinary Medicines

However, it was first licensed in the US three years ago for separation
anxiety from being left alone for long periods.

The American Food and Drug Administration said it should be taken with
therapy to modify the dog’s behaviour – and should be taken by puppies as young
as six months.

At the time, Steve Connell, Eli Lilly’s manager of consumer services for
companion animal health, said that more than 10million US dogs exhibit strange
symptoms from being left alone too long.

‘Lilly research shows that 10.7million, or up to 17 per cent, of US dogs
suffer from separation anxiety,’ he said. ‘We’re thrilled that our first product
for dogs can help restore the human-pet bond.’

He said research showed that 73 per cent of dogs taking Reconcile and
undergoing therapy showed better behaviour within eight weeks, compared to dogs
receiving therapy alone.

The drug’s website says: ‘While you may not be familiar with canine
separation anxiety, you are probably familiar with its symptoms.

‘While you are gone, your dog may do one or several of the following: chew
destructively; bark or whine; inappropriate urination and/or defecation; drool;
pace; tremble; vomit – or worse.

‘Separation anxiety is a clinical condition in your dog’s brain. Your pet is
not a bad dog. Your pet’s behaviour is the result of separation

In Britain, research for Sainsbury’s Bank in 2003 indicated that 632,000 dogs

and cats had suffered from depression in the previous year.

Nearly three times as many had suffered from behavioural problems which could
be linked to depression, such as attacking furniture.

Clare Moyles, Sainsbury’s pet insurance manager, said: ‘People are leading
more stressful lives and unfortunately this can have an adverse effect on the
health of our pets.

‘Cats and dogs can be very susceptible to their owner’s feelings and if they
sense that they are unhappy they can become agitated or depressed.’

Side effects of Reconcile can include lethargy, reduced appetite, vomiting,
shaking, diarrhoea, restlessness, excessive barking, aggression and seizures in
a small number of dogs.

Grassley Investigates Lilly/WebMD link Reported by Washington

It is
not too hard to find evidence of links between WebMD and drug giant Eli

A 2002 article on the gigantic medical site about pain and
depression says “Lilly is a WebMD Partner,” and an advertising award in 2004
went to the FCB “client” Eli Lilly & Co./WebMD–not clients.

and skyscraper ads for Lilly‘s blockbuster antidepressant Cymbalta on WebMD‘s
home page never seemed to yield to other advertisers in 2009–and the Washington

Post reported Lilly and WebMD to be partners in 2000.

Now Sen. Charles
Grassley (R-Iowa), ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, is
investigating financial ties between Lilly and WebMD Health Corp because of a

WebMD TV ad exhorting people to undergo a Lilly depression screening.

can joke about the need to tell people they are depressed–do people need to be
told they have a headache?–but pharma’s screening ruse to recruit new
patient pools for the volatile drugs among teens, adolescents and new mothers is
not funny.

3,500 news articles about antidepressant linked violence
appear on the web site, SSRIstories.com, including 700 murders, 200
murder-suicides, 51 school shooting incidents and 54 postpartum depression cases
since 1989.

In addition to WebMD, WebMD Health Corp. includes the web
sites Medscape, MedicineNet, eMedicine, eMedicine Health, RxList, theHeart.org,
and drugs.com. Original partners and investors says the Washington Post included
“Microsoft, DuPont, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. (and his Fox TV networks),
Silicon Graphics and Netscape founder Jim Clark, drug maker Eli Lilly, and EDS,
the computer services company founded by H. Ross Perot.”

Lilly is not the
only pharma company receiving unmarked product placement on WebMD.

summer, a video featured a woman patient confessing she was fearful of life
while a voice over said she needed treatment for “general anxiety disorder” and
the camera showed bottles of Forest Pharmaceuticals’ antidepressant
Lexapro moving down the manufacturer’s assembly line
. Get it? No disclaimer
on the video or “sponsored content” appeared.

Another unsponsored WebMD

video last summer urged people on antidepressants to remain on their therapy
“despite side effects” and a third suggested women concerned about cancer, heart
attack and stroke risks of postmenopausal hormone therapy should continue their
treatment at lowered doses. Hang in there, valued customers.

A search for
Wyeth (now Pfizer) antidepressant Effexor a few months ago on WebMD elicited a
JAMA study finding Effexor superior to other antidepressants by a Wyeth funded
second author, Graham Emslie, MD. Effexor was the drug Andrea Yates took when
she drowned her five children in 2001, a case found on

Questions about conflict of interest have surfaced at
WebMD‘s Medscape too which administers many of the lucrative drug company
sponsored continuing medical education [CME] courses in the US which doctors
must complete to keep their state licenses.

Last year psychiatrist Daniel
Carlat, MD–who recounts his adventures as a Wyeth paid Effexor promoter in the
New York Times magazine–writes that he received, as a member of Medscape, an
envelope with “a brochure from Forest Laboratories advertising Lexapro, and
nothing else. It was creepy, like Invasion of the Body Snatchers.”

Lilly is known for launching the SSRI antidepressant revolution with Prozac,
Cymbalta does much of the heavy lifting now with worldwide sales of $3.075
billion in 2009.

Many remember Cymbalta as the drug 19-year-old healthy
clinical volunteer Traci Johnson killed herself on, during trials on the Lilly

campus in 2004–soon after FDA investigations into suicide/antidepressant

Traci had no depression history said Rev. Joel Barnaby, a
spokesman for the Johnson family, who called Lilly‘s decision to proceed with
Cymbalta’s launch as scheduled “offensive” posturing.

Five others
suicides occurred during Cymbalta clinical trials, said the FDA and twice the
rate of suicide attempts were seen in women prescribed the drug for stress
urinary incontinence–also patients with no depression to blame.

remember Cymbalta as the drug Carol Anne Gotbaum, daughter-in-law of New York
City Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum, was taking during her macabre death in
police custody at the Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport in 2007.

But now Lilly
and WebMD are pushing Cymbalta for pain since it was approved for
fibromyalgia in 2008. “Across cultures, patients who complain of pain tend to be
depressed,” says the 2002 article which calls WebMD and Lilly partners, a
finding from a “huge international study by Prozac manufacturer Eli Lilly and

“Could your muscle aches be related to depression?” hawks WebMD

text under the heading, “Recognizing the Symptoms of Depression.” Next to it is
a picture of a depressed women with arrows pointing to the pain in her head and
neck, chest and stomach, arms and hands, legs and feet and of course

“Print out this symptom diary, and fill it out. Then take it to
your doctor to discuss what may be causing your symptoms.”

This content,
we’re told, is “selected and controlled by WebMD‘s editorial staff” but “funded
by Lilly USA.”

DO NOT MISS RADIO SHOW TONIGHT!!re-scheduling you for next Monday night! Eli Lilly Exec & Ann Blake-Tracy


The BLIZZARD in the East has knocked out the network phone lines in PA!

I have to run an encore program tonight…can’t do anything live because
all the lines to the network are down.  ugh.

I’m re-scheduling you for next Monday night, 8-9pm Pacific…that’s the
Middle Hour of the program.

Dr. John Virapen and I have been doing shows together. We have
been so busy getting things set up that I have not yet had a chance to share the
news and introduce you to him.

Who is Dr. John Virapen? (See below for more detail.)
While general manager of the Swedish division of Eli
Lilly John BOUGHT the approval for Prozac in Sweden – yes, he bribed the
doctor responsible for making the decision to allow it on the market. Luckily
another doctor stopped that, but there was enough damage done that Lilly was
able to use what they bought to encourage other countries to approve this DEADLY
drug and pave the way for all of the Prozac clones that followed. He is now
doing all in his power to get the truth to the world about the criminal
practices of these companies and the dangers of these drugs and he wants
compensation for the victims. HE DOES NOT MINCE WORDS!
Together we hope to wake up America and then the world up to
this drug-induced nightmare!!!

Tonight John will do a national radio show with Jeff Rense and I will be on tomorrow night. In a couple of weeks we will be back on the show together again. Times for that show are: 12:00 PM Eastern, 11:00 PM Central, 10:00 PM Mountain, 9:00 PM Pacific and I will be on tomorrow night – Wednesday, February 10 at 11:00 PM Eastern, 10:00 PM Central, 9:00 PM Mountain, 8:00 PM Pacific and you can access the show online if it is not on your local station by going to the following address:


Saturday we did a show with David Christopher and that
show should be posted in the next day or so and can be listened to at the
following address:
If you have any ideas for places for John and I to speak, just
let me know and we will see about getting it booked. Also if you go to John’s
site below you can hear him speak this past summer in Switzerland. It is an
incredible lecture!

  • in some cases corruption prevailed in the approval and marketing of drugs?
  • illnesses are made up by the pharmaceutical industry and specifically
    marketed to enhance sales and market shares for the companies in question?
