6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

extract - from Seroxat NewsletterBBC Panorama is planning to broadcast a follow up to the `Secrets of Seroxat' documentary in May. Many of you who contacted the programme will have been asked by the producer to fill in a special version of the Yellow Card designed for Panorama by MIND. The Yellow Card system is used by GPs to report drug safety issues to the Medicine's Control Agency. If your GP has not already filled in a Yellow Card about Seroxat, please ask them to do so.see full document here

Research links Panorama investigations
to rise in adverse drug reports by UK doctors
The number of adverse reactions reported by UK doctors to the antidepressant paroxetine – often know by its brand name Seroxat - rose by 61 per cent after three editions of the BBC's award-winning current affairs programme Panorama explored increasing concerns about the drug.
Research just published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology shows a sudden increase in reports immediately after each of the three programmes were aired in the UK in October 2002, May 2003 and October 2004.
Five regulatory announcements made in the UK during the same period resulted in a much smaller five per cent increase in reports of adverse reactions.
The research team from the Department of Social Medicine at Bristol University, UK, explored prescribing patterns and adverse drug reports for paroxetine, which is part of a group of drugs called SSRIs (selective serotonine reuptake inhibitors).
"Our analysis of adverse drug reports made by doctors suggests that negative publicity, particularly the three Panorama programmes, were associated with marked, short-term peaks in reporting" says lead author Dr Richard Martin.
"In the months before and after the three Panorama programmes were aired adverse reports went up from 8.3 to 13.4 per 100,000 prescriptions. The change before and after regulatory announcements went from 7.6 to 8.0."
SSRI's are used to treat patients with depression. They work by raising levels of the important chemical serotonin which helps to regulate communications (electrical activity) in the regions of the brain thought to be affected by depression.
The initial Panorama programme followed two announcements by the US Food and Drug Administration. The first announcement, in January 2002, warned of severe withdrawal symptoms from paroxetine and the second, in October 2002, suggested links between the drug and suicidal behaviour.
"Overall prescribing of paroxetine started to fall gradually after the FDA's warning was publicised in the UK" adds Dr Martin. "Prescribing patterns were not as obviously affected by media attention and regulatory announcements as the reporting of adverse drug reactions, but they may have helped to maintain the decline."
Solicitor Mark Harvey said: "All the claimants allege they tried to withdraw from Seroxat and have suffered discontinuation syndrome."
Dorey cannot claim compensation from GSK through alleging Seroxat led to a state of mind that caused him to kill his wife because a criminal act cannot be the basis for such a claim.
Since it was first prescribed in 1990, Seroxat has been linked to at least 50 suicides. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23433242-details/Maker+of+
His claim is part of a £30million damages case against the makers of the drug, which is supposed to boost confidence and happiness.
Law firm Hugh James, on behalf of the claimants, alleges Seroxat is 'defective' under the 1987 Consumer Protection Act.
Solicitor Mark Harvey said: 'All the claimants allege they tried to withdraw from Seroxat and have suffered discontinuation syndrome.'

Seroxat withdrawal plan formulated by Dr Healy & C.I.T.A. as early as 2002 - yet Fiddaman ignored it, why?
From the Northern Echo, first published Saturday 4th Jan 2003.
A CHARITY has developed an action plan to help people suffering withdrawal from the anti-depressant drug Seroxat.
Thousands of users of Seroxat, including many in the North-East and North Yorkshire, have reported withdrawal effects, from head pains to suicidal tendencies.
Some users say it has taken them years to come off the drug, which is manufactured by pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and, in desperation, have developed their own withdrawal plans.
But the Council for Involuntary Tranquilliser Addiction (CITA), in Liverpool, says it has developed a number of safe withdrawal programmes in conjunction with Dr David Healy, director of the North Wales department of psychological medicine, at the University of Wales.
The programmes include switching from Seroxat to Prozac or using the herbal remedy St John's Wort.
Pam Armstrong, a CITA advisor, said reducing dosages before switching to Prozac had proved the most successful.
She said: "Sometimes they work very well for people but, to me, it is against the objective if you cannot get off it."
More than 4,000 people, who are demanding a change in literature which says the drug is non-addictive, are considering a joint legal bid against GSK.
But the company maintains that there is no scientific evidence that use of the drug leads to addiction.
A working party, which includes the Department of Health's executive body, the Medicines Control Agency, is looking at the effects of all the drugs known as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, including Seroxat.
A spokesman for GSK said: "GlaxoSmithKline works with the regulatory authorities on an ongoing basis to evaluate the safety and efficacy of all our medicines, based on the most recent data, and this review is part of that continuous dialogue."
CITA can be contacted on 0151-932 0102 between 10am and 4pm on weekdays, and between 10am and 1pm on weekends.
Alternatively, Ms Armstrong can be contacted on 0151-286 9898.
It's thought that between three and seven million Britons are affected, with

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 drugsThe 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.

Despite having to pull the content of three blogs liar Bob Fiddaman continues to defame two innocent people
Bob Fiddaman's biggest lie is the one he tells himself everyday "I fight againsts GSK because they fucked my life up"
Why did Bob Fiddaman go cold turkey when we know from Truthman30 that Healy & CITA had seroxat withdrawal plan early 2003?
Seroxat withdrawal plans developed by Dr Healy / Pam Armstrong CITA were available prior to 2003 - extract from - Northern Echo 4th Feb2003

Matt Holford predicts that Fid would crack "you'll drive yourself fucking nuts, trying to work out what it's about"
Fid knew "Bryce was once very anti GSK and Seroxat something happened" - yeah must have found out Harvey was a crook exploiting MH patients?
I'll reply on Matt's points
----- Original Message -----
Matt, it is very hard not to fight my corner when allegations are made about me. Yes, I know, it's easy to ignore from where most of you are sitting but you want to try sitting where I am and having some cretin post about how I'm a benefit cheat, a racist, a parasite and now, it seems, someone who signs up to swinging sites!
I walked away 24 hours ago and then I get the swingers site thing in my inbox, he has set me up so he can write about me!
Matt, I fight againsts GSK because they fucked my life up, it's only natural that I should fight against someone who seems hellbent on discrediting me.
One thing I do know is that Jeremy Bryce was once very anti GSK and Seroxat. Something happened that made him change his mind and turn his attentions on Seroxat campaigners.
I understand where you are coming from Matt but this is beyond a joke. He even has a photo of me and my ex love from Australia in the files section of UK Survivors.
Shelley Jofre says "we were taking on" GSK - actually Shelly it was Mark Harvey who was taking them on - you were fixing it for him
6.10 in - It's not something you do lightly WE WERE TAKING ON the worlds second largest drug company
7.30 We were talking to the lawyer the whole way through production
Shelley Jofre you didn't know what you were broadcasting about & you were led by the nose by Mark Harvey
Jofre had only just started working on Panorama at that stage
3.30 in " Jofre calls SSRI's "SELECTIVE Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors"
4.14 Jofre knew little of how the pharmcutical industry worked
4 .30 in Ed says - lets look at antidepressant story
4 45 Jofre says although problems with whole class of antidepressants we (bbc) decided to concentrate on Seroxat
Why we narrowed down on Seroxat
1 because it was made by GSK
2 all the drugs in class cause suicidal thinking on dose change
3 Seroxat had a unique problem of withdrawal BECAUSE IT WAS LONGER ACTING ... we decided to focus research into this drug

Oh, and one other thing: Bryce, if Bryce it is, doesn't often identify himself, so, truth be told, one doesn't really know who one is being attacked by, even though the modus operandi, language, etc, are familiar. For example, I don't think that blog is identified as being authored by Bryce, and although it's been assumed that "Sara xx," on those Furious Seasons threads, was Bryce, we don't know that for sure, either. This creates uncertainty, in one's mind, but only because one feels inclined to attack back, in the same way. Don't, it doesn't work, as a methodology. Instead, deal with what has been said, and convey one's message as succinctly as possibly, preferably conveying your complete and utter boredom with the subject matter. Bryce, if Bryce it is, says the same thing, again and again and again. You only have to rebut, once, and then I suggest that you refine your rebuttal - that is, do what he does, which is repeat yourself, over and over and over again. He will either give up, or you will get some movement. If he won't state his objective, such that you can decide whether you wish to argue towards it, then I don't see what else you can do. Matt

"As you may or may not be aware, I have been the target of scathing written attacks on the internet of late.
These stem from Jeremy Bryce, a 55 year old from Downpatrick, Northern Ireland.
He has created a blog about me where he continues to write about my disability, finances and in general inciting hatred toward me.
As with all blogs, there is a button at the top which says 'FLAG BLOG'
If this is pressed by many visitors, Blogger will take a look into the content and if deemed unsavory will remove the blog.
I'm all for free speech but this man, Jeremy Bryce, has overstepped the mark. He has even published my name and address online and continues to goad me with cartoons with my image pasted on.

Coventry University Podcasts » Blog Archive » One woman, a multinational and a victory - Shelley Jofre, Panorama
Panorama reporter Shelley Jofre discusses her investigated allegations that psychiatric drugs, in particular the best-selling antidepressent Seroxat have devestating side effects and are being over-prescribed to children in the UK and US. Shelly questions how much faith we should put in the medicines we take
Sarah Venn's father posts on BBC Panorama site - but no mention that he co-wrote/modified Healy's original withdrawal protocol
I have just watched the third series of Panorama addressing the very serious problems of patients taking Seroxat. I commend the production team for an excellent and balanced view that has hitherto been kept secret by GSKB.
I am Sarah Venn's father and I cried when watching the programme. I felt for the families of those who have lost loved ones. I have nursed and watched my daughter attempt to withdraw from Seroxat only to be there when she failed after 12 months of effort that you or I would have given up after one week. GSKB have only one interest - to make money.
Dr Benbow is a highly paid executive of GSK who only cares about his wealth, not the interests of the public who are prescribed the drugs the company he works for make. I was appalled to listen to Prof Sir Alasdair justify his position in not controlling the drugs agency. For me he should be sacked, not allowed to resign, and his knighthood taken away. I am a saddened father but thankful to your programme for bringing this very important topic to the attention of the people. Ernest Venn, England

Cyndi only a vile and nasty person would use such posts to paint themselves as 'victim' ........
from Bob's fiddaman.blogspot.com
because she was taking Effexor not Seroxat - this was Bob Fiddamans response!
He considers himself worse off than the mother - more important than a two hour old dead baby.
This is the sort of person you choose to believe - the sort of person you're supporting!!
Dr Hart said "We have all done things on these medications we are not proud of" - check out Phillip Carmichael who took dostinex
Fidders, mate, let it go... I warned you about getting drawn into their reality.I know it's difficult not to respond, when you see an accusation levelled against you, but just roll with it, man. Stick up a link to Mardi's blog, give her a bit of publicity, and leave it at that.You're spending valuable time and effort on something that doesn't really impact you, at all. Take a step back, get a new perspective, see the ridiculousness of it, laugh, and then get on with something more productive.Matt

Real purpose of Fiddaman / MHRA meeting, at request of MHRA, was to discuss their window dressing Patient and Public Engagement Strategy
Will Bob Fiddaman write about all the liquid SSRI's or just continue his fishing trip for Mark Harvey? Don't hold your breath!

Some patients with manic-depressive illness may enter into a manic phase. This is characterized by unusual and rapidly changing ideas, inappropriate happiness and excessive physical activity. If you experience this, contact your doctor.
Symptoms such as restlessness or difficulty in sitting or standing still can also occur during the first weeks of the treatment. Tell your doctor immediately if you experience these symptoms.
Like all medicines, Prozac can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
