Strattera: Psych Drug DEATHS As UK State Secrets has:

Strattera Liver Injury Reports Continue To Be Received By FDA

And Before you even Read it, ...... We have 1 question:

How many people have actually DIED, or had their liver and kidneys Blown out..... from Undiagnosed, Untreated, ADHD?

Here's 2 keepers from the above.
"The bolded warning indicates that the medication should be discontinued in patients who develop jaundice, which involves a yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, or who have laboratory evidence of liver injury while taking Strattera."
"Drug induced liver injury is the most common reason for acute liver failure in the United States. A drug may cause chemical damage to liver cells which can result in serious injury to the liver and may cause death. Signs of liver damage may include nausea, jaundice, vomiting, bleeding, abdominal pain or mental confusion. Kidney failure may also be present in some cases."
Mental Confusion? Isn't this stuff peddled to make people Unconfused? links to Sepp Hasslberger at who has: (from Oct 2008)

Strattera Adverse Effects: UK Medicines Agency Refuses To Act
"Janne Larsson, an investigator and reporter in Sweden, has obtained information about adverse event reports on Eli Lilly's ADHD drug Strattera, using the Swedish freedom of information laws. The data, coming from both the FDA's adverse reaction database and from reports to the UK's Medicines agency, shows numerous adverse effects and scores of deaths by suicide.

Yet the agency, even after repeated prodding by Larsson to initiate action, has refused to budge or even acknowledge that there is a problem. MHRA apparently accepts the drug's producer Eli Lilly's data rather than its own and the FDA's adverse event reports."

Hasslberger's article has Larsson claiming MHRA "cannot verify the source" of false info regarding Strattera deaths, when it was the Manufacturer itself - Eli Lilly - which Provided that info, ..... To MHRA.

Hasslberger also brings us This report from Janne Larsson:

Suicides and Psychiatric Drugs: A Report Based On Data From The National Board Of Health And Welfare In Sweden. On pg 9:
"Better sources of information are the unpublished clinical trials of psychiatric drugs done by pharmaceutical companies, and the important studies done by independent researchers.

A number of these studies show that antidepressants and neuroleptics increase the risk of suicidal behaviour and directly cause effects that lead to suicide."
As the old Scot in Braveheart said: (right after they cauterized his arrow wound shut with red hot steel): "Shoore and That'll Wake you up in the Morning"

And in This letter from Janne Larsson to Professor Kent Woods: Chief Executive MHRA:
"Add to this the staggering number of adverse events reported internationally for Strattera (the majority for children) Lilly has told the MHRA: During this reporting period, a total of 23,132 spontaneous adverse event reports of atomoxetine [Strattera], representing 58,048 adverse events, were collected by the MAH [Market Authorization Holder; Eli Lilly] [5] This covered the period from November 2002 to March 2006. The number of persons who have experienced suicidality in connection with Strattera treatment has now reached 965 (PSUR 9, p. 106). Up to November 2007 (PSUR 9, Annex 16) there were also 513 case reports about mania, psychosis or hallucinations in connection with Strattera treatment.

Strattera - 10,998 Adverse "Psychiatric Reactions" reported In Less Than 3 Years
"These agencies, responsible for protecting the public from harmful drugs and for "appropriate treatment", consider a document reviewing the "suicidal and self-injurious behaviour" caused by a psychiatric drug in the category of state secrets, and that it would be "an actionable breach of confidence" to let the public know about these data."
State Secrets? "an actionable breach of confidence?" STATE SECRETS?

Orwell's 1984 is now 25 years behind us in Western Civilization's rear view mirror.

Again: How many people have actually DIED, or had their liver and kidneys Blown out, ..... from Undiagnosed, Untreated, ADHD?

In the pre Public/Private cooperation CHANGE AGENT days Before 'Mental Health' became such a Lucrative obsession, ..... those Untreated ADHD-ers became carpenters, bricklayers, plumbers etc. (I.E. people who actually Contributed to society) Rather than crippled wards, or full time residents of the Granite Orchard, in our Brave New, One World Disorder, National Socialist, For Profit/Non Profit, Non-$cience, State.

Thank you for visiting my blog- lithium level was checked 2X last week, kidney function was also checked and I went to the
ER on Friday night and found out they want to do a 6 hour glucose tolerance test.... something might be off with my sugar.

Thank you for caring. YOu are a good decent person and I do like reading you.


P.S. Homer rocks.

After AstraZeneca kidnapped Tigger & Eyeore to push Seroquel, ...... We gotta wonder How long it'll be before the ADHD poison merchants snatch Homer to try to peddle Their Dopes?

And for You, .... just plain old Bunker's fine. No need for the Mr.

Maybe not Homer, but Bart once went on an ADHD or ADD drug called "Focusin".

It was clearly Ritalin.

And Squidward from Spongebob had ECT this season.

I plan on writing about that when I feel better.

We can't give you med advice. We're Not Docs, BUT, ..... next time the Black Dog bites, go back and read your own sidebar on All those meds, ..... and remember that that Black Dog might very well be the meds, and not the Susan, ...... OK?

Curmudgeonly Yours


And besides; How would anyone Know if it was the meds giving Homer or Bart jaundice?
