BIG PHARMA PAID MILLIONS IN SECRET SETTLEMENTS AFTER ANTIDEPRESSANTS LINKED TO MASS MURDER

Every time there are reports of a mass shooting, there are a number of people who automatically question whether the suspect had mental health issues or was taking prescription medications such as antidepressants.

While history has shown that the most notorious mass shooters in this century were taking antidepressants or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) before they carried out the deadly rampages, there are a number of killings that have been linked directly to the dangerous drugs. In fact, the pharmaceutical companies behind the most popular SSRI’s have paid hundreds of millions of dollars in damages:

ELI LILLY PAID SECRET SETTLEMENTS TO SURVIVORS AFTER MAN ON PROZAC WENT ON SHOOTING RAMPAGE IN 1989

GLAXOSMITHKLINE PAID $6.4 MILLION TO THE FAMILY OF A MAN WHO MURDERED THREE FAMILY MEMBERS HOURS AFTER TAKING PAXIL IN 1998

While the cases mentioned above are notable because they received significant media attention, there is still an overwhelming number of lawsuits that stemmed from cases in which pharmaceutical companies paid millions of dollars for failing to warn doctors that the antidepressants they were prescribing could drive patients to kill themselves and others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Presidents of these large pharmaceutical companies, who know the risks, but do not inform doctors or patients of these substantial risks, should be prosecuted for selling unsafe products, and should be doing hard jail time - not in a Club Fed.

That should begin to cure the problem.

Unfortunately, that will only happen in this country when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic, as Big Pharma handsomely pays off candidates for high office, overtly, and covertly, to look the other way, when their products cause grevious harm to end users
