Bryce is list owner SSRIcrusaders - anyone who says he favours GSK is a SELF SERVING LIAR

http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/SSRI-Crusaders/members?group=mod


SSRI-Crusaders was formed to expose the damaging effects of the SSRI - Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors known as: Prozac, Paxil, Effexor, Zoloft, et al - classification of antidepressants, as well as, all other antidepressants which target serotonin (either primarily or secondarily) in the human brain. We are pursuing every course of action available to demand accountability by the pharmaceutical firms of the world who market these drugs and justice for those who have been victimized. This group was setup by survivors, families and friends of people who have suffered as a result of ingesting these drugs.

Quoting your new best friend PPE consultee Mr Fiddaman -

"I'm pleased to announce that David has now met with them and laid a new, revised withdrawal protocol on the table."

I note that the Healy paper was presented to you very recently at a date/venue not stated by Mr Fiddaman.
However I would like to draw your attention to page 6 & the text therein -

"SSRIs are well-known to impair sexual functioning. The conventional view
has been that once the drug is stopped functioning comes back to normal.
There are indicators however that this may not be true for everyone. If sexual
functioning remains abnormal this should be brought to the attention of your
physician who will hopefully report it.

Withdrawal may reveal other continuing problems similar to the ongoing
sexual dysfunction problem such as memory or other problems. It is
important to report these. The best way to find a remedy is to bring the
problem to the attention of as many people as possible."


Please advise me under the FOI or other working arrangements PPE i.e. patient public engagement

(a) does the MHRA endorse Dr Healy's attached paper?

(b) does the MHRA NOT endorse Dr Healy's attached paper - if not why not?



(c) does the MHRA endorse Dr Healy's position re memory, which appears to me to say that for some people at least that they have ongoing problems with their memory after completion of SSRI withdrawal?

Seroxat for seven years - Sarah Venn back to her demanding work as a barrister 06/18/04

yad_seut a member of Online Seroxat Support Group Apr 2, 2004 - Fiddaman & the other moderators must have approved this persons membership


Seroxat down 36% after media attention - this proves it is a drug you can get off & that Bob Fiddaman is a LIAR !!


Chart 2 was plotted using annual data, rather than quarterly data. It shows that the annual consumption of paroxetine in all its forms grew by more than 1.15 million units per year for 7 years up to 2001, then it fell by 2.7 M units i.e. 25% from 2001 to 2003. In fact this decline is much worse if the higher precision quarterly data is used; from the peak at Q4 2001 to Q4 2003 the fall was 36%. Annual totals can disguise higher rates of change defined by the quarters within the years (frequently exploited in financial marketing.)

Seroxat decline UK - no other SSRI has declined as fast as GSK's Paxil/paroxetine


Chart 5 demonstrates the immense value to Society of free and independent Public ServiceBroadcasting and Internet communication. This combination has triggered the growth ofawareness of SSRI danger. It has united the many thousands of victims of SSRIs across theworld with some professionals who have laboured so long in a cause for saving lives, seekingjustice and exposing dysfunctional drug regulation. Chart 5 shows that the tide has turned inthe UK. Great encouragement should be taken from this life saving victory. However effortsmust continue both to expose the known risks of paroxetine (Seroxat, Paxil) and all the other illvalidated SSRIs and to call for the establishment an effective independent Drug SafetyRegulator in every country, the absence of which is the root cause of this ongoing officiallysupported tragedy.

Michael Jackson's drugs cocktail 'was highly unusual and dangerous' - 20mg of anti-depressant Prozac and 100mg of Zoloft - no mention of Seroxat


Michael Jackson's drugs cocktail 'was highly unusual and dangerous'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1196015/Michael-Jacksons-drugs-cocktail-highly-unusual-dangerous.html

The cocktail of drugs being taken by Michael Jackson at the time of his death was highly unusual and potentially dangerous, according to a leading pharmacist.
The singer was taking a combination of antidepressants, anxiety pills, painkillers and stimulants, which would have left him listless and unresponsive. Some have been associated with serious side effects, including breathing problems and mood swings.
David Pruce, of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, said: 'The mix is highly unusual and not something I would ever expect to see and would not recommend.



'The additive side effects - the side effects of the drugs in combination together - could be potentially dangerous if not monitored closely. Painkillers can cause breathing problems and, in high doses, can stop people breathing altogether.
'The other drugs would reduce his responsiveness and make him drowsy and difficult to wake.' There was also a risk of becoming addicted to the painkillers, he added.


However, Mr Pruce said he could not say whether the drugs had led directly to Jackson's death.

Enlarge

Each drug was being prescribed in low to moderate 'normal' doses, despite the fact that the combination was rare.
It is understood that Jackson was being injected twice a day with the morphine-related painkiller Demerol, which in the UK is called pethidine and usually given to women in childbirth.
This was coupled with twice-a-day 3mg doses of the powerful narcotic Dilaudid, along with further injections of the painkiller Vistaril.
He was also taking 250mg a day of the anxiety drug Xanax, which is similar to Valium, along with 20mg of anti-depressant Prozac and 100mg of Zoloft. Jackson was also taking the anti-indigestion drug Prilosec.
An 'upper', the stimulant Ritalin normally given to children to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, was also prescribed in 10mg doses.
Mr Pruce said: 'It would be possible to see this prescription combination in the UK but it certainly would not be desirable. It's a very odd list.

Hi

I'm at work at the moment, but will dig out the references. I certainly hope you aren't being impersonated as I was.

There are a lot of SUGS about...! I'm banned from most too!

I am aware of Susan Wolfe, she telephoned the police the night before a MIND protest outside the MHRA saying someone had threatened to suicide bomb it and nearly jeopardised the demo. It is best to steer well clear, I think she isn't getting all the support she needs.

I have had a lot of problems getting off Paxil, but am getting there, to my delight! I wish I have never been prescribed it and hope to god no one else ever is either.

I think GSK's behaviour is disgraceful. I have also lost all faith in those who were supposed to be co-ordinating the campaign over here.
If I can to do anything to help, I'd be very keen. As I said before, the media still ring me regularly and it would be nice to get them in touch with people who will keep things moving.

Jackson - prescription drugs or Lupus? - you won't get this from the Scientologists posting with Bob Fiddaman

Was the King of pop really felled by prescription drug use and abuse ? Those who speculate on this theory could be dead wrong! Instead, Michael could very well be the victim of the lupus he suffered from.



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bonnie-fuller/the-real-reason-for-micha_b_221825.html

Did you know that Michael Jackson, was the victim of a rare auto-immune disease called lupus? Yes, he was according to his Wikipedia autobiography and as it turns out -- lupus sufferers frequently die in their 40s and 50's from sudden heart attacks, caused by atherosclerosis. Let me explain.

Lupus causes inflammation in many of the body's organs including the arteries of the heart. The inflamed arteries then cause cholesterol to deposit on their walls.These deposits cause scarring, and the whole process primes lupus victims to have massive heart attacks, which are often asymptomatic beforehand.

Mild lupus sufferers, like Jackson, are actually more at risk for having a fatal heart attack, according to Dr Michael Lockshin, a rheumatologist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. The reason for this is because people who have a mild case of lupus are less likely to take any of the medications which would prevent inflammation of the organs.

Now if you don't believe that Jackson had lupus consider this: vitiligo, which Jackson also suffered from, resulting in the famous pigment loss in his skin, is also an auto-immune disease. Coincidentally, vitiligo and lupus are often diagnosed in the same person, explains Dr. Lockshin. In other words, it would not have been unusual for Michael Jackson to have suffered from both ailments.

Here's another key fact: African-Americans are four times more like to be lupus victims than Caucasians. However, lupus is far more common in women than men. Still men, do get it.

So would prescription drug abuse have exasperated a case of lupus? Only if demerol was injected intravenously, would it also have damaged Jackson's heart, according to Dr. Lockshin. Demerol injected into his muscles would not have played a deadly role and neither would drugs like Xanax and Zoloft.

Lupus also frequently causes inflammation and pain in the joints, which could explain why Jackson was sometimes seen in a wheel chair. This might also explain why Jackson had not performed in years. Maybe it wasn't just the stress of the child molestation charges and trials that forced him to put his performance career on hold. Maybe, he was simply unwilling to share his medical problems with the public.

Until a possible lupus-induced heart attack felled him, the King of Pop may have preferred to preserve the illusion that he was still, at least in some ways, invincible

Zoloft (antidepressant) and Demerol (pain killer). - says Dr. Ann Blake Tracy - again no mention of Paxil / Seroxat

http://pakalert.wordpress.com/2009/06/27/like-elvis-michael-jackson-died-of-serotonergic-medications/



As suspected, and now confirmed, Michael Jackson dead at age 50 do to Serotonin Syndrome as a result of 2 serotonergic medications Zoloft (antidepressant) and Demerol (pain killer).

Lisa Maire Presley has not only lost her father, but now also her Ex-husband, to the same basic combination of drugs: antidepressants and pain killers.

Michael Jackson lost his life due to the organ-stopping effect of Serotonin Syndrome thanks to a drug that should have been removed from the market decades ago Demerol. A serotonergic medication similar in action to antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, and other pain killers.

Serotonin constricts smooth muscle tissue. The major organs of the body are composed of smooth muscle tissue. When serotonin levels increase too high the major organs constrict and shut down. Elevated serotonin, which all of these medications produce, causes death via multiple organ failure. This is the same way Daniel Smith, Anna Nicole Smiths young son lost his life due to the combination of four serotonergic medications.

Are Drugs To Blame For Jacksons Death?

The star had been taking prescription painkillers including anti-anxiety drugs Xanax, Zoloft and painkiller Demerol in recent months, sources close to Jackson told Life & Style

Life & Style reports that Michael Jackson was taking a cocktail of up to seven prescription drugs in the months before his death.

The star had been taking prescription painkillers including anti-anxiety drugs Xanax, Zoloft and painkiller Demerol in recent months, sources close to Jackson told Life & Style. The insider close to the star said he took a suspected overdose of drugs on Thursday morning, which caused respiratory and cardiac arrest.

And a Jackson family lawyer told CNN he feared the drugs could kill the pop star.



Jackson family lawyer Brian Oxman confirmed Jackson may have had trouble with prescription drugs as he prepared for his London show.

This was something which I feared and something which I warned about, Oxman said on CNN. I can tell you for sure that this is something I warned about. Where there is smoke there is fire.

Mr Oxman compared Michael to Anna Nicole Smith, allegi ng that Michael had enablers just like her.

CNN details Jacksons long history of medical problems here. At a news conference, brother Jermaine Jackson said doctors and family tried for an hour to resuscitate the performer. TMZs video of the conference is here.

Meanwhile, Hollyscoop reports that doctors visited Jackson daily. The sites latest update:

While news of Michael Jacksons death came as a shock to many, inside sources tell Hollyscoop exclusively that the King of Pop had doctors visiting him daily.

Michael went into cardiac arrest Thursday afternoon and was rushed to UCLA Medical Center around 1pm. His personal physician was with him at the time and accompanied him to the hospital.

At approximately 1:14pm when he arrived at the hospital, doctors and emergency personnel performed CPR and tried to resuscitate him, but were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at 2:26pm.

The cause of his death is still unknown, but an autopsy is scheduled for this coming Friday afternoon. Michael was transferred from UCLA Medical Center to the coroners office via a Los Angeles Sheriffs helicopter shortly after 6pm.

The Sun UK
6-26-9

As the world continues to try to grasp and make sense of the incredibly shocking death of Michael Jackson, several people close to the family and investigation are hinting that prescription drugs may have played a role in the King of Pops demise.

TMZ is reporting that a Jackson family members have confirmed that Michael received a shot of Demerol just before Noon on Thursday, and that the dosage was too much. They say Jackson typically received a shot of Demerol daily.

Britains The Sun, citing sources at the UCLA hospital where Jackson was treated, is reporting that Jackson stopped breathing shortly after a shot of Demerol, a drug similar to morphine. Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing. His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped, the Sun source said.

Drug mix Michael Jackson took is key

Dr Martyn Lobley
The list of prescription drugs that Michael Jackson was reported to have taken includes drugs from three main chemical classes. Those most frequently referred to are the anti-depressant sertraline, known as Zoloft in the US and Lustral in Britain, the Valium-like tranquilliser alprazolam (Xanax) and the morphine-like painkiller pethidine (Demerol).

It is reported that Jackson collapsed shortly after an injection of Demerol, presumably administered by a doctor or nurse. The timescale is not clear, but the limited interval between the injection and his collapse suggests that the two may have been linked.

All tranquillisers and morphine-like painkillers are known to affect patients breathing patterns, especially if taken in excessive doses. Doctors know that the large single doses of opiates and sedatives given to patients in their final hours to relieve pain could shorten their lives by depressing their respiratory efforts.

When two drugs are given together, especially if they are from different classes, the effects do not simply combine they multiply. Doctors make use of this when treating high blood pressure where low doses of two drugs given simultaneously are often more effective than high doses of one or the other. But the multiplication principle also holds true for unwanted effects. The death of the actor Heath Ledger last year was attributed to the combination of Xanax with another opiate painkiller, oxycodone.

Police question doctor over Jackson's treatment
The recorded call that signalled last moments
The sedative effect of previous doses of Xanax, combined with an injection of Demerol, could have been responsible for the apparent shallowness of Jacksons breathing in the minutes that followed. By the time that the 911 call had been logged by the emergency services his breathing had stopped altogether. The sedation resulting from the drug combination may well have removed the desire for him to breathe for himself as surely as if the drugs had been administered by an anaesthetist.

When breathing stops and the heart is deprived of the oxygen required to function a cardiac arrest is inevitable.

As soon as a patient collapses the priority is to re-establish some sort of circulation and to provide essential oxygen, usually by administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). If the cause of collapse is known it is mandatory to deal with that too. A collapse as a result of a heart attack is often due to a pulse abnormality known as V-fib (ventricular fibrillation) and a couple of shocks from a defibrillator may restore the hearts normal rhythm.

If the reports are accurate, the short time between the injection and the collapse would mean that the doctor who injected the Demerol would probably have considered administering an opiate antagonist (or antidote) to reverse any respiratory depression.

The effects of the most commonly used antidote, naloxone, are short-acting but the time it buys the emergency response team, allowing them artificially to ventilate a patient, is invaluable.

But even in the best situations, attempts at CPR are not always successful. Jackson was known to be physically frail, reportedly weighing as little as 7st, and to be under great stress. Perhaps it is not surprising that the paramedics and emergency room staff were unable to revive him.

Over rapid withdrawal & 24 hours later Matt Burne hangs himself from a tree - well so much for the Meadows

http://ssristories.com/show.php?item=2184

Paragraph 11 reads: "But by the autumn of 2004, Matt was almost unrecognizable to family and friends. Deeply depressed over a breakup, the energetic, gregarious extrovert had been replaced by an exhausted, melancholy shadow. A battery of antidepressants only seemed to deepen his haze." Family members have confirmed for SSRI Stories that this young man had never before been depressed in his life. Due to a break-up with a girlfriend, he became saddened & fragile. Matt was initially put on Lexapro and Xanax by his family Internist. Two months later,after experiencing no relief, Matt saw a Psychiatrist who switched him to Effexor, starting him at 5 TIMES the recommended starting dosage (187.5 mgs. instead of 37.5 mgs). The Psychiatrist also added a mood stabilizer (Seroquel) "off label." Four days later, and unbeknownst to family and friends, Matt drafted a codicil to his Will. Two weeks later, Matt arrived at THE MEADOWS in Wickenburg, Arizona to detox off the drugs already in his system. However, the Doctors there added three more drugs (Vistaril, Lamectil and Tegretol) to the "cocktail" he was already taking. Concurrently, these same doctors began detoxing Matt too quickly from his Xanax. At 10:00 a.m. on the morning before his suicide, Matt Burne experienced a medically documented Xanax withdrawal so severe it necessitated a rescue/stat dose of the drug to reduce his symptoms. For the next and last 22 hours of Matt's life, no one administered any additional Xanax. He was found dead the next morning having hung himself from a tree.
His family has started a Website [ http://www.break-the-silence-org/ ] in his memory.

Seroxat Xanax, and the painkiller Vicodin - Robbie Williams was at "Arizona Meadows" Feb 2007

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

ROBBIE WILLIAMS IN ARIZONA MEADOWS
Robbie Williams is hooked on anti-depressants Seroxat and Xanax, and the painkiller Vicodin, it has been reported.The singer - who checked himself into a rehab clinic yesterday, thought to be Arizona's Meadows centre - also gets through 36 super-strength double espresso coffees, 20 cans of Red Bull and 60 cigarettes every day, according to reports.The troubled star - who quit alcohol and cocaine six years ago - is also reportedly battling insomnia and has been taking strong sleeping pills. Robbie recently told Britain's The Sun newspaper : "I can't honestly say that I don't take too many prescription drugs. How many is too many? If you drink as much coffee as I do, you easily get into the too-many-sleeping tablets thing."I hate drugs, I love drugs. As depressing and heartbreaking as it is, it makes life interesting."Robbie's fears of becoming addicted to prescription drugs were apparent in the lyrics of 'Good Doctor' - which features on latest album 'Rudebox'.The lyrics read: "I've got all these demons and I can't stop them. To tell you the truth, Doc, I might have a problem."Robbie was reportedly plunged into depression after his former band TakeThat eclipsed his own album and 'Close Encounters' world tour with their reunion shows and hit LP.Their comeback single 'Patience' topped the British charts and has been nominated for the British Single BRIT Award . For the first time in a decade, Robbie isn't in the running for a major prize at the BRITs - which takes place in London tonight. Meanwhile, Robbie's mom Jan says checking into rehab on his 33rd birthday was the "best gift he could have given himself". Jan, a drugs counsellor, said: "I have known about Robbie's problems for some time. It has been very worrying. I will be going to see him soon."

But he also has a history of battling depression, drink and drugs.
In February 2007 he checked into a rehabilitation centre in Tucson, Arizona, to be treated for an addiction to the anti-depressant Seroxat.
He left the following month and since then has been 'clean'."

Bob it appears has become obsessed -


Wrong time not to logon Matt as I'm working on something that requires much research.I guess we are all creatures of habits when it boils down to it. Thing is, I could choose not to do something and give in to the agitation caused by that refusal. Whereas, choosing not to take a drug that I am used to taking, really never was a choice I had because of the consequences caused by withdrawal.

https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=10459981&postID=4561480735408539563

Has Bob Fiddaman become obsessed - asks Matt Holford?


I tell you what, Bob. Tomorrow, don't log on - don't go on your computer, at all. It can't hurt, can it? And you can't possibly be addicted to going online, can you? But I've a suspicion that you'll start to feel agitated, once you've reached that point in your behavioural cycle/pattern when you should have paid at least one visit to your keyboard.Don't push it, incidentally... When you feel uncomfortable, logon, and do what you would normally do. But understand the nature of addiction

A PSYCHIATRIST from Conwy is at the centre of an international row surrounding a controversial anti-depressant.
Dr David Healy, who practises at Bodreinallt Surgery, Castle Street, and Llandudno Hospital, has been a key figure in the controversy surrounding Seroxat, a prescription drug used by millions every year."

Paxil - Seroxat Chipmunk - trawling for clients



awyers recently took to YouTube -- the popular video Web site -- to announce a $48 million class action settlement involving the antidepressant Paxil.

The 90-second video -- along with a virtual character known as the Dramatic Chipmunk -- aims to alert potential class members about a settlement stemming from a lawsuit alleging that Paxil was unlawfully marketed to children. Hoorman v. SmithKline Beecham Corp., No. 04-L-715 (Madison Co., Ill., Cir. Ct.).

"As long as you're honest about something, why not also be funny," said attorney Brian Wolfman of Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy group that launched the YouTube Paxil announcement, which debuted on July 6.

"I just love the concept of it and I love the fact that we were able to do something a little different," Wolfman said. "If we have another tool to get at a different generation of people, let's go for it."

The YouTube class action notification scheme involved a seven-second video dubbed the Paxil Chipmunk, in which a startled chipmunk appears while the words sprawl below: "If you took Paxil, you could get $100 or more."

Seroxat - 30 man years of NHS time wasted on GSK prosecution - all that time & nobody gave a dam about other SSRI's


Seroxat - MHRA spent up to 30 person years on GSK non prosecution - thus had no time to regulate other Psychiatric drugs


The MHRA has, to date, spent between 14 and 30 person years (maybe £1m of drug industry funding) in not deciding to prosecute GlaxoSmithKline, since its investigation began in October 2003. Last month the Agency told Panorama, "that the investigation has been given substantial additional resources and remains a high priority" - but their latest communication on the subject suggests anything but: that 'high priority' stuff seems to be a media sop, a trip off some tongue in the Agency's "Communication Division". Do read this mail, if only to savour the tone: the MHRA rounds off a spluttering (spitting?) blast of disinformation with, "I hope this is helpful". Whatever your party, you might well wonder if the end of credible government is nigh.

Cancer incidence and mortality in men with Klinefelter syndrome: a cohort study

Abstract
Background: Men with Klinefelter syndrome have one or more extra X chromosomes and have endocrine abnormalities. Case reports have led to suggestions that men with Klinefelter syndrome have elevated risks of several cancers, but published cohort studies have been relatively small. We conducted a nationwide cohort study to examine these risks.
Methods: We followed a cohort of 3518 men who had been cytogenetically diagnosed with Klinefelter syndrome in Britain from 1959 through 2002 and compared their cancer incidence and mortality with that of men in the national population. All statistical tests were two-sided.
Results: The standardized mortality ratio (SMR) for all cancers was 1.2 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.0 to 1.4). Compared with the general population, men with Klinefelter syndrome had higher mortality from lung cancer (SMR = 1.5, 95% CI = 1.0 to 2.0), breast cancer (SMR = 57.8, 95% CI = 18.8 to 135.0), and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (SMR = 3.5, 95% CI = 1.6 to 6.6) and lower mortality from prostate cancer (SMR = 0, 95% CI = 0 to 0.7). The standardized mortality ratios were particularly high for breast cancer among men with 47,XXY mosaicism (SMR = 222.8, 95% CI = 45.9 to 651.0) and for non-Hodgkin lymphoma among men with a 48,XXYY constitution (SMR = 36.7, 95% CI = 4.4 to 132.5). The cancer incidence data corroborated these associations.
Conclusions: These results support a hormonal etiology for breast cancer in men and for prostate cancer and suggest that men with Klinefelter syndrome may be at substantially elevated risks for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, breast cancer, and, perhaps, lung cancer.

Teaching tips from - "Oral and Written Language Abilities of XXY Boys: Implications for Anticipatory Guidance, " Pediatrics, Vol. 81 (6), June 1988.

XXY males often have decreased immediate auditory recall they have trouble remembering what they have just heard. Parents and teachers can help them remember by approaching memory through visual channels. Illustrating words with pictures may help. Gesturing is another useful technique. For example, a teacher might accompany the word "yes" with a nod of the head. Similarly, shaking the head from side to side is the universal gesture for "no." Other useful gestures include waving goodbye, showing the child an upraised palm to indicate "stop," and holding the arms outstretched to mean "so big."
XXY males frequently have trouble finding the right word to describe an object or a situation. Parents and teachers can help them build vocabulary through a variety of techniques. One way is to provide them with synonyms, such as pointing out that a car is also called an automobile. Another important teaching tool is categorizing-showing the child that an item belongs to a larger class of items. With this technique, a child could be told that cars, buses, trucks, and bicycles are all vehicles, machines that carry people and things from place to place.
Because XXY boys have difficulty expressing themselves, they may do poorly on essay-style test questions. Multiple choice questions will give teachers a better idea of what an XXY child has learned-and prove less stressful for him as well. Similarly, rather than asking an open-ended question, parents and teachers may wish to present alternatives. Instead of asking "What would you 'like to do now?" they may wish to offer a choice: "Would you rather work on your spelling or work on your math?"
Parents and teachers can help XXY boys develop the ability to express themselves through solicited dialogue engaging them in conversation through a series of questions. The same technique can be used to get the child to develop his narrative (storytelling) abilities. For example, a parent might begin by asking a child what he did at recess that day, and by following up with questions that get the child to talk about his activities: "Did you go down the slide? Were you afraid when you climbed all the way to the top of the ladder? And then what? Did you go on the seesaw? Who sat on the other end?"
Parents can also help XXY boys develop their expressive language abilities simply by providing good examples. Through a technique known as modeling, they can help organize their children's thoughts and provide them with examples of how to express oneself. For instance, if a younger child indicated that he wanted a toy fire engine by pointing at it and grunting, the parent could hand it to him while saying "Here you are. This is a fire engine." Similarly, if an older child asked "Are we going to put the stuff in the thing?", the parent might reply "Yes, we're going to put the oranges in the shopping cart."
Research indicates that XXY boys may do poorly in an open classroom situation and seem to prefer a structured, tightly organized environment centered around familiar routines. First, teachers can reduce distraction by placing them in front row seats. Teachers also should present information slowly and repeat key points several times, if necessary. XXY boys should not be given tasks that have many small steps. Rather, each step should be presented individually. On completion, the child may then be asked to work on the next item in the series.
As mentioned above, XXY boys may withdraw from material they find difficult and retreat into day dreaming. A teacher or parent should gently regain the child's attention and help him to focus again on the task at hand. Similarly, XXY boys may have difficulty putting one task aside and beginning another one. Again, the parent or teacher should gently shift the child's attention, by saying something like "Drawing time is over. Let's put away the crayons and take out the math book."

Statistics about Klinefelter syndrome - thats a lot of people, many not properly treated, being stigmatised by Bob Fiddaman Dip.Couns MOC & MSFTR

Remembering Stefan Kiszko - fitted up by the police because he had been put on testosterone injections by the doctor shortly before the Molseed murder


Police were convinced he was responsible for the horrific crime because he had been put on testosterone injections by the doctor shortly before the killing.There was also an allegation, which was later proved to be a lie, that he had exposed himself to a group of teenage girls and "girlie magazines" had been found in his car.Lawyer Campbell Malone and private detective Peter Jackson continued to campaign for a fresh investigation highlighting a series of problems

prevalence of sex chromosome trisomies - previously thought to be 1 in 1000 has risen to near 1 in 550

Centre for Environmental and Preventive Medicine, Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, Barts and the London, Queen Mary's School of Medicine and Dentistry, Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6BQ, UK. j.k.morris@qmul.ac.uk

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18000523

The birth prevalence of sex chromosome trisomies (SCT), that is individuals with an XYY, XXY or XXX sex chromosome constitution, is traditionally based on six surveys of unselected newborns carried out in the 1960s and early 1970s. All three SCTs had a prevalence of 1 in 1000 same sex births. We re-examined these prevalences based on additional cytogenetic studies of newborn surveys, spontaneous abortions, perinatal deaths and prenatal diagnoses. The more recent newborn surveys suggest there has been an increase in the prevalence of XXYs, but not of the other two SCTs since the original newborn series. The prevalence of XXYs has risen from 1.09 to 1.72 per 1000 male births (P=0.023). We suggest that such an increase, in the absence of an increase in the prevalence of XXX, is unlikely to be due to increased maternal age. As XXY is the only chromosome abnormality known where a substantial proportion ( approximately 50%) arise as the result of non-disjunction at the first paternal meiotic division, we speculate that some factor may be interfering with pairing and/or recombination of the sex bivalent at the paternal MI division.

Paxil - Seroxat - these men, one of them Mark Harvey's expert witness show Seroxat is the fastest declining SSRI of all time.

Graham Aldred reassured his wife that Seroxat was safe - eleven days later Rhona she killed herself





Dr David Healy charged Seroxat clients £500 to read their medical notes

Seroxat - this is the man who tried to show that paroxetine is more difficult to withdraw from than all other SSRI's (spelling errors as per original)


Does Seroxat have a capacity to cause asverse effects consequent upon or following discontinuance (withdrawl) such as prevent or make more difficult the ability of users to discontinue, withdraw from or remain free from taking Seroxat to a greater extent than all other Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs)

Seroxat decline - media & other awareness events - Fiddaman if you don't like this conclusion consider yourself a victim of your own propaganda



Conclusions.
Chart 5 demonstrates the immense value to Society of free and independent Public Service
Broadcasting and Internet communication. This combination has triggered the growth of
awareness of SSRI danger. It has united the many thousands of victims of SSRIs across the
world with some professionals who have laboured so long in a cause for saving lives, seeking
justice and exposing dysfunctional drug regulation. Chart 5 shows that the tide has turned in
the UK. Great encouragement should be taken from this life saving victory. However efforts
must continue both to expose the known risks of paroxetine (Seroxat, Paxil) and all the other ill
validated SSRIs and to call for the establishment an effective independent Drug Safety
Regulator in every country, the absence of which is the root cause of this ongoing officially
supported tragedy.



======================================================

No other SSRI has declined faster than Paxil Seroxat - anyone who says you can't get off it is self-serving

Defining Issues:


Defining Issues:-Does Seroxat have a capacity to cause asverse effects consequent upon or following discontinuance (withdrawl) such as prevent or make more difficult the ability of users to discontinue, withdraw from or remain free from taking Seroxat to a greater extent than all other Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs)


http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/cms/150_14671.htm

Seroxat declined 36% from Q4 2001 to Q42003 - that is a lot of UK people getting off without any specialist help

if the higher precision quarterly data is used; from the peak at Q4 2001 to Q42003 the fall was 36%.

IMR uses the common medication unit called TWS, (Two Weeks Supply), this enables the
medication to be accumulated under one universal label regardless of form or concentration.
Chart 2 was plotted using annual data, rather than quarterly data. It shows that the annual
consumption of paroxetine in all its forms grew by more than 1.15 million units per year for 7
years up to 2001, then it fell by 2.7 M units i.e. 25% from 2001 to 2003. In fact this decline is
much worse if the higher precision quarterly data is used; from the peak at Q4 2001 to Q4
2003 the fall was 36%. Annual totals can disguise higher rates of change defined by the
quarters within the years (frequently exploited in financial marketing.)

Seroxat Panorama - Graham Aldred reassured his wife that Seroxat was safe


http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/panorama/3707900.stm

Graham Aldred reassured his wife that Seroxat was safe
Graham Aldred's wife Rhona was prescribed Seroxat for depression in 2001. She was depressed and anxious but not suicidal.
She wasn't keen to take it at first, but her husband reassured her.
He said: "When Rhona brought the drug home she said to me she had some reservations about it and I said, 'don't be silly, this is England, this is a country where you can trust medical regulation'.
"Now she was right and I was wrong."
However, shortly after starting on Seroxat, Rhona became very restless, agitated and had terrible nightmares. After 11 days on the drug, she drove to a secluded country lane, and killed herself.
Graham told the programme: "This is what the Regulator doesn't seem to understand - that there are people on the end of all this."

Seroxat Paxil - "The Decline of use of Paroxetine in England" - paper by Graham Aldred 17 May 2004


Official drug statistics for England show that the use of paroxetine in England grew annually
for the first 11 years since 1991 in spite of the increasing weight of scientific and clinical
evidence that this drug does induce suicide in some and dependence in others. Annual
consumption of all forms of paroxetine peaked in Q4 2001 it but Q4 2003 it had fallen by 25%.
Some reasons for the growth in patient awareness and rejection of Seroxat are examined in this
paper.

No surprise that the legal community is closely watching AstraZeneca's ongoing defense in Seroquel product-liability suits. After all, the pharma biz keeps plenty of lawyers in full employment, between torts and patents and regulatory matters. So it's also no surprise that, when Litigation Daily proclaimed the Seroquel troubles a 'mass tort that wasn't,' plaintiff's lawyers came out of the woodwork to protest."

SSRI DISCUSSION FORUM: Report on Gene for Depression Is Now Faulted

SSRI DISCUSSION FORUM: Report on Gene for Depression Is Now Faulted: "Report on Gene for Depression Is Now Faulted
June 17 2009 at 10:45 PMAnonymous




http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/17/science/17depress.html?ref=global-home

By BENEDICT CAREY Published: June 16, 2009
One of the most celebrated findings in modern psychiatry that a single gene helps determine ones risk of depression in response to a divorce, a lost job or another serious reversal has not held up to scientific scrutiny, researchers reported Tuesday.

The original finding, published in 2003, created a sensation among scientists and the public because it offered the first specific, plausible explanation of why some people bounce back after a stressful life event while others plunge into lasting despair."

The new report, by several of the most prominent researchers in the field, does not imply that interactions between genes and life experience are trivial; they are almost certainly fundamental, experts agree.
But it does suggest that nailing down those factors in a precise way is far more difficult than scientists believed even a few years ago, and that the original finding could have been due to chance. The new report is likely to inflame a debate over the direction of the field itself, which has found that the genetics of illnesses like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder remain elusive.
This gene/life experience paradigm has been very influential in psychiatry, both in the studies people have done and the way data has been interpreted, said Dr. Kenneth S. Kendler, a professor of psychiatry and human genetics at Virginia Commonwealth University, and I think this paper really takes the wind out of its sails.
Others said the new analysis was unjustifiably dismissive. What is needed is not less research into gene-environment interaction, Avshalom Caspi, a neuroscientist at Duke University and lead author of the original paper, wrote in an e-mail message, but more research of better quality.
The original study was so compelling because it explained how nature and nurture could collude to produce a complex mood problem. It followed 847 people from birth to age 26 and found that those most likely to sink into depression after a stressful event job loss, sexual abuse, bankruptcy had a particular variant of a gene involved in the regulation of serotonin, a brain messenger that affects mood. Those in the study with another variant of the gene were significantly more resilient.
I think what happened is that people whod been working in this field for so long were desperate to have any solid finding, Kathleen R. Merikangas, chief of the genetic epidemiology research branch of the National Institute of Mental Health and senior author of the new analysis, said in a phone interview. It was exciting, and some people thought it was the finding in psychiatry, a major advance.
The excitement spread quickly. Newspapers and magazines reported the finding. Columnists, commentators and op-ed writers emphasized its importance. The study provided some despairing patients with comfort, and an excuse Well, it is in my genes. It reassured some doctors that they were medicating an organic disorder, and stirred interest in genetic testing for depression risk.
Since then, researchers have tried to replicate the gene finding in more than a dozen studies. Some found similar results; others did not. In the new study, being published Wednesday in The Journal of the American Medical Association, Neil Risch of the University of California, San Francisco, and Dr. Merikangas led a coalition of researchers who identified 14 studies that gathered the same kinds of data as the original study. The authors reanalyzed the data and found no evidence of an association between the serotonin gene and the risk of depression, no matter what peoples life experience was, Dr. Merikangas said.
By contrast, she said, a major stressful event, like divorce, in itself raised the risk of depression by 40 percent.
The authors conclude that the widespread acceptance of the original findings was premature, writing that it is critical that health practitioners and scientists in other disciplines recognize the importance of replication of such findings before they can serve as valid indicators of disease risk or otherwise change practice.
Dr. Caspi and other psychiatric researchers said it would be equally premature to abandon research into gene-environment interaction, when brain imaging and other kinds of evidence have linked the serotonin gene to stress sensitivity.
This is an excellent review paper, no one is questioning that, said Myrna Weissman, a professor of epidemiology and psychiatry at Columbia. But it ignored extensive evidence from humans and animals linking excessive sensitivity to stress to the serotonin gene.
Dr. Merikangas said she and her co-authors deliberately confined themselves to studies that could be directly compared to the original. We were looking for replication, she said.

US attorneys (with whom
Hugh James is working)

obtaining a temporary
court order to ban Glaxo

advertising Seroxat on

"non-habit forming". The
Judge will hold a full

further. However not

Seroxat US Scientology lawyer George W. "Skip" Murgatroyd - penalized for his illegal ambulance-chasing and solicitation of clients


SEROXAT SUFFERERS - STAND UP AND BE COUNTED: Seroxat Scientology lawyer George W. "Skip" Murgatroyd - penalized for his illegal ambulance-chasing and solicitation of clients: "The Indiana Bar penalized Murgatroyd for his illegal ambulance-chasing and solicitation of clients within the state of Indiana. He is not the only Scientology crime cultist lawyer sanctioned for blatant ambulance-chasing. John Coale, husband of Greta van Susteren, also shares this dubious honor."

What does Fiddaman NOT understand - Suicide "there was a Class Phenomenon" & "successful litigation was unlikely"


"We found some time ago that there was a Class Phenomenon for suicidal ideation and acts which meant that, together with other notable problems both in science and in law, successful litigation was unlikely."
-
If Mr Harvey thinks that this is an unfair representation of his own words then he can apply to have this blog taken down or this post removed.
-
Remember he wrote to Bob Fiddaman on behalf of GSK's lawyers Addleshaw Goddard
Fiddaman was forced to apologise in public for his conduct & take down offending material.

Seroxat - Paxil UK lawyer stated that in the case of Seroxat suicide "successful litigation was unlikely"


Mark Harvey said -
"We found some time ago that there was a Class Phenomenon for suicidal ideation and acts which meant that, together with other notable problems both in science and in law, successful litigation was unlikely. That was a decision I had to make irrespective of my personal concerns about these drugs and their links with suicidal ideation. It is noteworthy however that the original MHRA, EMEA and FDA investigations of SSRIs arose as a direct result of the focus on Seroxat and Paxil by the litigators both here and in the US and the media. That focus has highlighted the class issue. "

Seroxat UK lawyers Hugh James drop Seroxat/Suicide clients - if anyone doubts this contact simon@lancashirecaravans.co.uk

We had some bad news today, the solicitors acting on our behalf, wrote to us saying they could not find a link between Susan trying to kill herself (several times) and the use of Seroxat, and that they will no longer handle our case, they have been dealing with this for the past 7 years or so.... and after this time, that is their conclusion.... useless, all they see is text book stuff, they cannot see outside of the box the way I can.Now, we have less than 8 weeks to beat the 10 year time limit to get this to court, I want to know how I can at least start court proceedings against Glaxo without the aid of solicitors, can someone advise us on how to start the proceedings in court.

Seroxat - Paxil's Rob Robinson, what his co-researcher said about him on SSRIcrusaders - note glitterari won compensation from GSK / Paxil


from SSRIcrusaders post 22960
glitterari@aol.com said
This statement really shocks me. Psychiatry is pseudoscience and considering that Rob's father committed suicide while taking Zoloft, I would think his opinion of all psychiatric drugs would be more critical, not just confined to Paxil. One only needs to read the daily newspapers to see the havoc these drugsare wreaking on society. Psychiatric drugs have cured nothing, but they've caused a whole lot of mayhem.

Paxil / Seroxat - What the moderator of the Withdrawal & Recovery group said about Rob Robinson

** Rob, you don't think the use of psychiatric drugs isnecessarily bad?? Have I missed something? Isn't Paxil a psychiatricdrug?What has happened that you won't take a stand now about these drugswhen you once did?Do you think it's just Paxil that's a problem? Well, it isn't.Drugs that alter brain structure in order to alter brain chemistry(most psychotropic drugs) are just another cash cow for thepharmaceutical industry. It has been accepted to not know themechanisms by which these drugs "work" (look at the clinicalpharmacology of any of them in the PDR). Because of this, drug makerscan make drugs for which they don't have to be accountable. Thepsychiatric classes of drugs are rife with drugs designed not forefficacy, but for profit.Have you not read Peter Breggin's books? Dr. Healey's? Whatabout Ann Tracy's book? John Abramson's? Dr. Glenmullin's? MarciaAngell, MD, former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Journal ofMedicine has a book titled "The Truth About the Drug Companies". Didyou read this one? How about the list of books on your very ownwebsite?http://paxilprotest.com/page31.htmlHow about the now regular exposes about the lies and deceits of thedrug industry? Have you read any of those? Do you not read the vastnumber of articles written every month about the shambles made ofpeople's lives by these drugs? The medical journals have even begunpublishing articles that cast a negative light on these drugs and/orthe drug industry? Did you miss those, Rob?The articles in the papers are only about those who committedheinous crimes while on these drugs. There are thousands more whowill never be the same after being seduced by the promise of relieffrom depression, anxiety, mania, and psychosis only to find that evenif they suffered only a few mild "side effects" (they're in theminority) they will never be able to connect emotionally again as theyonce did because of the chemical lobotomy they received from thesedrugs. Don't forget the physical damage caused by them (adrenalsystem, thyroid, circulatory system, hormonal system, etc.).What about all the people who struggle to stop taking these drugs?Most go through hell, some have to quit school, some have to leavetheir jobs. Some lose their spouses, some their children, some theirfriends. Some kill their spouses, children, or friends.How about the children? 30% of young people entering the moreexclusive colleges in the U.S. are on psychiatric drugs. Fully 50% ofthem are talking these drugs by their senior year.Infants are now being diagnosed with psychiatric disorders anddrugged. Most young children taking psychotropic drugs now are taking2,3, or 4 of them. This happens because the drugs don't work for whatwe are told they work for. Parents note their children are no better,and often worse and complain to their physicians. The physicians, whohave been lied to just as much as the lay public, mindlessly write foryet another drug to be added to the drug regime because when theyphone the pharmaceutical companies to tell them the drug is notworking as intended, they are told that the child has a"treatment-resistant illness and advise physicians to add a drug,often one of their own. They have no evidence that this combinationworks to resolve the child's "mental illness" but they don't need itbecause of people who can be so easily convinced that these drugs AREefficacious and it must be a problem with the patient if they don'twork.Here is an example of one of the latest excuses told bypharmaceutical companies to physicians when physicians, who arebeginning to doubt these drugs, seek their "expertise" in sorting outwhy the child (or adult) has not improved:TJ - aged 10. On psychotropic drugs since the age of 5. 1stdiagnosis -- ADHD. When the entire drug selection targeted for thisalleged disorder had been tried with poor results and TJ wasdeteriorating from having his young, developing brain assaulted byamphetamines, TJ was given a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Gee,could it have been the rapid withdrawal from all the amphetamine-baseddrugs given to him that made his behavior and moods unpredictable?After being treated with more than 14 drugs, includinganti-psychotics, for this alleged disorder and being worse off thanever, TJ's "specialists" from a large, well respected psychiatrichospital in NY phoned one of the drug companies. They were told thatTJ's problem was that his "illness" was "progressive" and that's whythe drugs weren't working for him. A recommendation was made for achemical straitjacket of 5 drugs, 2 of which were anti-psychotics.This did the trick. TJ is so drugged he can no longer participate inschool, has seizures several times a day, is unable to complete asentence any time he tries to talk, and is often found in the yardsleeping on the ground while his siblings play around him. When hisparents question any of this, they are reassured that although this isa progressive illness and TJ will always be ill, the doctors will keeptrying until they find something that "works" for TJ. The parents gohome relieved, and glad that the doctors care so much and are takingsuch good care of TJ.There are hundreds of thousands of TJs out there today, Rob, not tomention all the adults. Do you think your comments helped or hurtthose who are trying to help them?Did they put something in the water in your hotel that's affectedyour memory, Rob? It makes absolutely no sense to me that you woulddefend psychiatric medicine the way you did when you had theopportunity to be heard.Frankly, I believe you are currently more of a liability than ahelp to the movement that wants psychiatry and drug companies to stopinjuring people with psychotropic drugs. Until you find again whatyou once knew and are willing to stand up and speak out about it, I,for one, am boycotting your website, and I am suggesting to the 530members of my psychotropic drug recovery group that they do so also.A most puzzled and disappointed,Catherine Creel(Withdrawal_and_Recovery)Entire articleProtest at GSK Criticizes Drughttp://www.philly.com/mld/inquirer/business/12749439.htm
