Seroxat In China

In Europe and the US, Seroxat prescriptions have declined dramatically because of the notorious reputation of this SSRI drug to induce horrific side effects, but it seems even though Seroxat(Paxil) can cause suicide, homicide,addiction, severe withdrawal and birth defects, GSK is intent on milking sales of Seroxat until it bleeds the very bones out of people.

It just goes to show how devious these drug companies are, when they have been caught lying on one side of the world about the side effects of their drugs, they simply market it in emerging economies on the other side; they wait until the truth comes out there, and by that time they have made millions in profit, enough to provide a legal war chest as a shield against the inevitable future law suits….

The most widely-used antidepressants in China by the end of last year were GlaxoSmithKline’s Paxil/Seroxat (paroxetine) with a value market share of 18%, followed by Pfizer’s Zoloft (sertraline; 10%) and Eli Lilly’s Prozac (fluoxetine; also 10%). Lundbeck’s older drug Cipramil (citalopram), also sold by Xian-Janssen, and Lexapro had market shares of 6.5% and 3.0% respectively.
