All four of the BBC Panorama’s outstanding exposes of GSK’s ‘antidepressant’ Seroxat are now available to view online. The BBC’s investigation of Seroxat and GSK were unprecedented both in their scope and in the response which they received from the public. The first documentary, “The Secrets of Seroxat” from 2002 received tens of thousands of personal responses from people in England who had taken Seroxat and suffered frightening side effects such as aggression, personality changes, nightmares, withdrawal, suicidal and homicidal thoughts, suicide attempts (and in some cases self harm and completed suicides).
Personally I believe these documentaries are essential viewing for anyone who has been harmed by psychiatric drugs, SSRI’s, the pharmaceutical industry or psychiatry/doctors, and of course for those taking Seroxat. Just how far and how low would a drug company go to cover up dangerous side effects and protect its drug over patients health?
After ‘The Secrets of Seroxat”, the viewers response was so great that the BBC made a follow up documentary called “E-mails from the edge“. This documentary, is in some ways, even more disturbing, than the first one, as it contains many harrowing first hand accounts of GSK’s hideous ‘anti-depressant’.
The third documentary, “Taken on trust” focuses on the toothless regulator- the MHRA- and the various shenanigans relating to their involvement in the Seroxat scandal and the fourth, “Secrets of the drug trials” concentrates on GSK’s fraudulent Seroxat study (329) which led to many children being prescribed a drug which should never have been licensed.
